i wouldn't mind old because manga can very expensive and to catch up would take forever. I would love to buy manga from my favorite series but the price can burn a large hole in your pocket which i can't afford lol. And don't think staying on point with large scale mangas like bleach,berserk, or one piece who have over a billion chapters

I don't mind buying them used.. unless of course the book was kept in very poor condition... but a little wear and tear from old age isnt that bad, it happens. I'm so tired of spending so much money on my manga i swear iv'e spent over 2000 dollars already DX so buying them used and cheaper is very nice in my opinion :).

I haven't ever bought manga used before, but I would consider it. Mostly because my manga collection is just like new... I think there's only one page rip in all my books. And that wasn't even me who ripped it lol. So yeah, if the seller looks reliable, I would maybeee buy it used!

I believe one can better support both the manga and anime industry by purchasing their products brand new.

I try to avoid it, but I don't mind as long as the book is in good shape.

I almost always buy used, unless it's a series I really like. It's just cheaper that way, and I know the books will get banged up when in my bag anyways.

I don't buy used manga. I don't even buy manga at all. I read them online. However, I do get used manga from the library and they are pretty decent considering no one really checks them out

I'm a bit picky when I buy used manga. It basically has to be in new or almost new condition. Which means no page creases and minimal binding creases. But other than that, I buy it all the time XD

I prefer to buy new as I am supporting the author/artist/creationist, that said I have manga that are limited prints, hard to get, OOP, never to be printed again, or just generaly if it will be printed again they would censor it. Of these catergories, used in great condition is my first want, I will take nearly new and good used. If the book has been abused then I consider if I will ever get this book again? If it is fairly common then I wait, if not common then I will get it just to have it.

I rather buy new manga. For some reason buying used manga feels like a faux pas to me.

I get used manga if they are in good enough condition and the price is right. Got Onizuka 1 & 2-6 and Chobits 1,2, & 4 from my local Goodwill. All in pretty good condition. With the series that are currently in print, I generally buy new, but for series out of print, especially when the price between a new and used copy is rather large, I will buy used if it's the better deal.

I'm as big a "support the industry" guy as anyone, but a good deal is a good deal. It's not like buying used manga is illegal either.
