Douchebags who block the manga aisles at bookstores.
Posted 11/10/10
It's simple, really. Ask politely for them to move and if they refuse, ask a store manager or employee and if that doesn't work, make them move by shoving past them to the book you want. It's there own fault, who cares if they get upset?

Ha ha this is kind of funny really, well it's happened a couple of times to me but the kid was doing it on purpose. He was Shamu in human form and he knew it, blocking the aisle just to get me mad..

I tried this and the manager told me there's nothing they can do, that all they can do is ask them move but if they don't they can't force them =_= I didn't buy it but to be honest the thing that makes me angriest about it is tat they read the books nd then don't buy them. THey not only warp the pages and the cover, but they don't seem to care that they are slowly killing the industry >:[ if everyone just reads them in the store...then what reason do the publishers who go through all the red tape to get them liscenced and translated have for continuing in this business? If we don't buy their product, then why are they still giving it to us. The worst was when I saw somone do this with a manga written and illustrated by someone I knew thrugh a mutual friend--who lived in the same town, in a one bedroom apartment scraping by as it was no less. If she didn't make enough sales, the publisher would drop her...luckily, she found a new publisher that has more loyal fans.

It just really pisses me off, not that they're i the way, but because they're ruiningit for everyone else by making harder for the companies to put new series out in north america.


What that manager told you is, frankly, a load of horsecrap. They CAN ask them to move, but they are probably too chickenshit to do so.

In my case, it probably helped that I was dressed professionally and gave the manager a copy of my business card. I also stressed that one of the individuals had tripped me up and that I could have fallen, not only injuring myself, but also potentially the person I would have fallen on top of. I had also insisted that I was planning to contact their corporate offices. Which I did.


Lol it prolly didn't help that I looked like a hipster XD I'll try again next time

Actually in smaller stores I let them know that they're merchandise is being damaged by people reading stuff in the store and advise them to leave the wrappers on and stuff, or put rubber bands on them. Some stores do it and it keeps people from reading them in the store

The manga aisle's always so free and empty in any bookstores I go to. So I get to take up the whole aisle to myself. lol But if there are people, they just say "excuse me" and I step away.

LOL are they too damn lazy to just stand up? or maybe just find a chair?! is it really that difficult?!!!
but usually, i just find it funny....for some reason.
thats probably because i don't go to the bookstore for manga a lot...i usually get novels.
but when i do glance down that manga section, i always see some kid just relaxing on the damn floor.
once, i saw a kid f***cking laying down in the aisle, i couldn't even get through!

Usually I say excuse me and give them that look of move or I will step on you and they usually move right away.

If that doesn't work, go ask a person in a wheelchair if you can borrow them for a minute and run their lazy asses over. I think I just came up with an idea for a iPhone game...

I hate it when they lay down on the floor laying parallel to the aisle. You can't even walk in there. =|

lol sine I'm from the caribbean where manga and anime isn't really as a big a thing as in america, that has never happened tome but it sounds annoying. Sometimes i can be a bit mean so I'd probably find the most lame manga i could find and rant about it as i read next to the ppl sitting on the floor lol. Unless there's a ton of them cuz then i don't want to get ganged up on :S
