No, I think it's a perfectly acceptable price.
In places like the UK and Canada, it's much more expensive and harder to find manga, so I'm grateful for those prices.
Also, the industry is suffering due to scanlations and the economy. It makes perfect sense.

I wish they would sell mangas at $5 because $11 for each manga is too much , but unfortunately it's not.
I must be an idiot when I actually look closely at how much I have spent on mangas. I have spent about $5,639.36 for 483 mangas according to my virtual bookshelf that keeps a track of all the mangas I have bought over the course of 3 years.
Gahh...seriously mangas are expensive. I think I'll just read online from now on.
