Well, you're in luck, for xxxHolic at least:

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-07-18/kodansha-usa-adds-xxxholic-rei-my-little-monster-say-i-love-you-monster-soul

At the VERY BOTTOM of the article, it says:

"Kodansha is also re-issuing CLAMP's Tsubasa and xxxHOLiC in three-in-one-volume omnibus form, with the first books in August 2014 and March 2014, respectively."

At the very least, your missing volumes should drop like a rock in price once the re-release comes out, if you don't want to buy the omnibus.

And, by the way, if you watch places like the Amazon marketplace like a hawk, you can get lucky. Every once in a while someone sane comes along, but you HAVE to keep an eye out because "sane" sellers disappear quickly. (As I personal rule, I will NEVER pay more than twice original retail price for an out-of-print item.). I know the pain of keeping an eye out for out of print stuff. It's not manga, but Hayate the Combat Butler Volume 8 (DVD) is absolutely insane.

As to the topic--hmm--let's see--I never did buy the Maison Ikkoku manga and once I saw what the prices were, I never bothered. I'd like to see that series get a reprint, but I'm not holding my breath. I can't think of anything else offhand at the moment, but if I REALLY want something, I bookmark the item and keep an eye out for a sane price. Once it becomes a habit on checking everyday, it's not so bad.

I generally try to buy my manga right away since you never know what's going to go out of print in two seconds but then even the stupid ones that I didn't think much of and bought used become expensive sometimes.

The most I ever spent on one volume though was around $35.00 . I wanted to finish the series and I couldn't find it for less at the time (it was Love Mode Vol. 10 ). I don't make a habit of doing that and will stalk websites until I find a reasonably priced copy (if it's something I really want).

BUT if I could get anything it would be Mushishi, which is painfully $$$$. Some of the volumes in that series are priced ridiculously high and I couldn't buy the whole sets listed on eBay in good conscience.

Hey alright. It may take a few years though :/ But I guess I can wait. Its better than never getting them or paying $150 for them right? XD
