Post Reply How do you feel about buying used manga?
Posted 6/10/13
I buy used manga all the time, and they're always in pretty good condition.

Why should I spend a fortune on new manga when I can get more for a lesser price? And many titles I like are old/out of print, so this works!

I have no issue with used manga, but I like buying it in person (at a Goodwill as opposed to online) so I can make sure it isn't too beat up

I like getting a good price, and there aren't many good options in town so I have to order online

It depends on the condition honestly.

I would buy used manga If it was a title that wasn't aval new any longer and I still wanted it or if it was at like a local bookstore in very good condition. I don't normally buy used manga online because new manga isn't much more. I mean on amazon sometimes you can find titles for like 1 cent but then its 3.99 shipping so its still 4 bucks, the new titles are often not much more than that and you don't have to worry about condition.

I love to buy used manga because it saves a lot of money, but I'll only buy it when it's in good condition.

I'm pretty cool about used manga's[Mainly for manga I'm trying to catch up on.]but before I buy any I do scan over the pages and etc to make sure it's not damage, I mean there are some used manga's that look very new and tend to be cheaper than a new one. So, kudo for my wallet.

I prefer to buy my manga new. Can't really trust second-hand for some reason.

I don't mind used manga if it's in like new condition. I do prefer to see it in person before buying it though. I usually don't buy used manga off the internet.

Most used manga I see is either very good or like new condition. Maybe missing the spine card, or the insert questionnaire/advertisements at best.

In other words, I don't feel a thing about buying used... most of the time. There are some series that I prefer new, but I usually single those out.

I don't mind giving used manga a good home. It's recycling at its best. Most of the time manga is being sold because the original owner outgrew the hobby, needed the money for something else, or just wants more space for new reads.
