If I really want the latest then I have no choice but to translate it on my own it's fun actually if you can slowly read Japanese or Korean etc.

I almost always buy my manga. The only manga that I read online are ones that aren't being sold in America, which isn't a lot.

Well, not all manga is licensed, so yeah.
Currently I'm reading yaoi mangas, and most of them is not licensed.

If I like a manga enough, I'll buy it(just like anything else I buy). And if it's licensed. I can't read kanji and such so :P

I've almost blown through the entire manga collection available from the San Antonio Public Library. Even stuff that I normally wouldn't read like Prince of Tennis. I do enjoy collecting volumes of titles that I really like.

I read it normally from scan sites. But if i like the series I tend to go out of my way to support it by buying the hard copy's. It also helps having the hard copy for when a long awaited final volume comes out you can easily binge read the hole series from start to finish. And no advertisements. ^^

I buy manga because I like having the official version. I sometimes borrow them from my local library.

No, I only buy physical copies of manga.

Not only is it supporting the artist, but it also supports the publishing companies so they can afford to bring over more manga titles and keep the industry afloat.

Wow I am apalled by how many "pirates" there are here. even at such a respectable site such as this. These authors put in hard work and dedication into writing these for your enjoyment and don't support them by buying it. This is what's wrong with this generation. I buy every thing I read because I WANT to support my favorite writers, not pirate it off for free.

get off your high horse

we buy fiscal copies because we want to, not because we get a false sense of pride .

when you buy a normal dvd/book are you going "i'm so glad that the publisher are making money"

plus i would think that a lot of manga artist/writers are paid by commission. (only get paid once)

*The more popular they are, the more they get paid for future projects/chapters.*
