I've bought used manga before and no I dont see a problem with it. Though I do like them to be in good enough condition so that I can read it x3

I like my manga less than $10. it doesn't matter if it's used as long as there aren't ripped out pages.

New all the way!

The thought of buying used unsettles me, I like my books in tip top condition when I buy them.

I buy used manga, when the manga series I want is out of print!

Like for example, I bought Petshop of Horrors, Victorian Romance Emma, Maison Ikkoku, Mars, Cardcaptor Sakura and now I'm completing Fruits Basket since it's in an out of print state.

^This. I prefer buying new, but if a series is out of print, I don't care. I want reasonable prices and buying out of print titles "new" can be insane. (If something's WAY out of print, the used prices can get ridiculous too though). I try to buy new if possible, because manga companies make the most money when you buy new stuff as soon as (or not too long after) a release comes out. But once something is out of print, that condition no longer applies.

I think it depends on the manga. If it's a manga I'm not terribly interested in I'll buy used. But if it's a favorite or I like it a lot, it's gotta be new! Like for Toradora! or The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya...used is unacceptable!

the only time i buy used manga is when i can't find any of it (but I end up finding it in the library). i buy out-of-print ones if they still have it on shelf at my local comic store. i bought tons of tankobon of Chobits for AU$20 and they're just missing the other half. I'd say if you find cheap-ones it's a good bargain. :)

i had a great collection of those just from buying from clearance at comic shop here. I had Boogiepop Phantom and some other stuff as well.

I never would have bought used in the past.

With Borders gone and Barnes & Noble getting less price lowering.... That has changed.

Doubt I would buy used online though. I need to be able to look through the books before buying them, Little scuffs aren't bad but bent pages, tears or any major damage is a no-no.

Out-of-print books I am less picky about, As long as the covers aren't screwed up or paged are torn I'll get them. Got the entire run of Please Save My Earth for under 2 dollars a piece at a local used book store.
