I got the idea 4 this question from the most recent manga i brought. a majority of my manga is brought offline 4 way cheeper. This one i got of borders.com for only $1.45! So have you ever brought used manga? do you trust it? or do you prefer Brand spankin new?

Please make sure you post your thread in the correction section.


I'm kind of a perfectionist, so not sure I'll ever buy used manga. Unless I see it is in real good condition I guess.

I just can't bring myself to buy used manga. I have to have them in perfect condition. Sometimes I won't even take new manga off the shelves if they're the slightest bit beat up haha. OCD FTW!

I only buy new manga at Borders.
Don't want the used mangas to be in bad condition.

I'm kinda picky about the condition of my manga, so I'll shy away from used. However, if it's OOP, then used may be my only option. I'd rather have a copy not up to my snuff that not have a copy at all...

I keep my manga in pristine condition and out of the sunlight, I got one from a friend and it didn't fit in with my collection since the spine was too pale and it had water damage and dog ears... NEVER again am I going to buy second hand XD

I prefer buying new, since that actually supports the publishers. I'm not averse to buying used if a volume is long out of print, but in those cases, I usually just avoid the series.

I don't mind buying used manga on amazon.com, for cheap, if the title is currently out of print.

Although, if it's not out of print, I think it's better to support the industry and not buy it used.

I prefer my manga to be new or at least "look new". Sometimes it's impossible to find manga new/buying new would be ridiculously expensive (especially if a title is out-of-print), so in those cases I will buy used. I try to buy "like new" or "very good" used copies in those cases where I do buy used.

I buy used manga all the time (for series that I'm trying to catch up on or are out of print) but once I've caught up with a series I buy the new ones.. or if it's a new series that I like I try to buy only new to support the mangakas and to try to support it so they keep bringing it out in English
