Also check out Jlist.com they'll have manga in Japanese as well as some other cool stuff. It's a nice place to get games if you know Japanese and don't want to wait for games to be brought to your region.

I usually check out my local comics store first, to support them. If they don't have what I want, I check online.

As far as novels go, there are barely any more standing bookstores left. I'd go check them out first before going online (unless they are reference or information books).

Mostly Amazon. The nearest Barnes and Noble is a 40 mile trip from my house.

I buy my Japanese manga from either yesasia.com or ebay.

I use Kinokuniya if I only want a couple of items. The individuals items are more expensive, but shipping is much cheaper. If I want a bunch of items, then I'll Amazon Japan, since the cost of shipping is balanced by what I save on the individual volumes.

Indigo/Chapters or Amazon. (Indigo because I get 30% off)

How the heck didn't you guys even mention this wonderful site called, Rightstuf.com? They sell pretty much everything anime and manga over there, in both English and Japanese. I haven't ordered anything yet over there, though... But I heard it's currently the cheapest way to get your stuff.

Oddly, Kinokuniya doesn't seem to advertise its membership program much at all on the website. Buried in the FAQ section is a blurb on how membership can be gotten either in store, by e-mail, or telephone. I recall getting mine by e-mailing the San Francisco store, where I had also picked up an actual paper pamphlet about the membership card program.

Hmm that's weird. Unfortunately for me the closest store is Costa Mesa or LA both of which are pretty far away.

Does anyone know how much the stores normally carry in terms of older stuff? If they carry what's online I might just take the train up there one weekend. Looking for mainly Date a Live, Strike the Blood, and Tokyo Ravens first couple volumes each.

I've ordered a couple things from there, and they're reasonable, even the shipping, which as I live in the arse end of the world, was surprising.

Barnes & Noble has a lot of books and manga so there most of the time. Otherwise Amazon and pretty much any other website everyone else uses.
