I only buy used manga at anime conventions, so I can see how bad the wear and tear is, I would never buy used manga online. Some 'used' manga can turn out to be barely used or not used at all, which makes it a smart way to get your manga very cheap! ^^

As long as the quality is pretty good I'm fine with buying used manga. I don't go out of my way to keep things in mint condition anyways but I do take care of my books to a certain extent

Buying both new and used may be required to find all the volumes.
Especially in those 30+ vol series that may have had volumes release years ago.

I believe in digital (paid for of course).
No worries about stock and I don't have the room for too many books.
But I would like to buy a few art collections by some of my favorite artists.

I'll happily buy used if it's in good condition.

I'd rather buy new manga but when a title is out of print my options get pretty slim so i do buy used manga on occasion. I usually try to get it in the best condition possible but i'll go for good condition if that's all that available. I've only been disappointed once. Apparently my definition of 'good' and the seller's didn't mesh.

To me, used feels like throwing money down the trash can. If my money can't go to the people who create or release the content then why pay any money at all? I might as well as just pirate it for free and call it a day. The end result is the same in that nobody who deserves to get paid for their work gets paid for their work but at least I'll have more money in my pocket.

Since when I buy new Manga, I read it several times and then wrap it up in plastic (like how it was before I bought it) and place it in the section of my room full of my "newish" Manga. I can't STAND people borrowing them or even touching them without permission. So buying used ones scares me a little, thinking someone didn't care for it and now just wants to sell it. What...What if it's dogeared in most places?!

I won't lie, I prefer new manga. But it can add up very quickly, so I have started buying used. My only qualm is that it has to be in damn good condition. I'm a HUGE bookworm (not just with manga, but books in general) and I always keep my books in great condition. So yeah, used is okay as long as it's still very pretty.

Oh the poor trees if everyone brought brand new. Not to mention the amount of garbage, when the old ones get tossed away...

That being said, i couldn't care less if it's new or used. as long as the product is in good shape. This goes for everything though, games, other items, magazines...

I prefer new Manga books but If the used book was in good condition then I wouldn't have any problem buying one to read.
