just a gentle reminder everybody, mentioning or linking where to find manga outside of CR is against the site rules. Please do not post any direct links. Those who offered links in the past have been replaced by nyan cat.

Thanks!

I read them on a frequent basis online. I only purchase manga when I can afford it (usually at cheap places like at anime conventions). However, my pet peeve is that I can't own anything incomplete therefore, when I buy I HAVE to have the whole series. That's where it gets REALLY expensive for me. It's either that or one volume mangas for like $20.

I almost got the whole series for Love Hina on print for $70 but someone else bought the 3rd Omnibus so I wasn't able to get it.

I live in Sweden which unfortunatly isnt great when it comes to translated Manga, so I for one read it for free. when I travel I try to buy full series of what I like. Im in Japan atm and already bought the full comic of To Aru Majutsu No Index and To Aru Kagaku No Railgun to support the developers. I don't even read Japanese all that well.

Yes, though if I genuinely like a series I will buy the manga as well... usually.

I actually do not read any manga whatsoever online or on an electronic device of any kind. I purchase every single volume that I want to read. To me, there's nothing better than the feel of paper on your fingertips and the scent of ink in the pages. For series that aren't available in North America, I simply accept the fact that it's not available and move on to another series.

I read online and buy them when licensed. But I actually haven't read any manga at all in months now for some reason.

Well I am from Jamaica and there are no stores where they sell manga so I read them online out of necessity, if they were available at the local bookstores I would have bought them

Rarely..and only yaoi. I like having a book in my hand..not an e reader..as a Luddite, I want a real paper book.

I buy the manga that actually comes out here, but I'm not going to miss out on all the manga that will never come here. I've bought every volume of Naruto, Bleach, Negima, etc... that gets released here.

Online, library, and buy only the ones I truly love.

Works out pretty well.
