So I've been involved with the anime community for around 7 years now. For a majority of my life I was broke so I never paid for anything until recently. I joined the U.S. Navy and have some spare change on my hands so I started collecting. I always told myself I would wait until I was older to start reading manga b/c I'd have nothing to do otherwise. My watched list is between 650-750 titles atm I havent updated my list in awhile and the last time I did the calculation to include rewatched titles the total time in minutes equated around 2 years and 3 months solid streaming time.

Any who, I now have begun to get into manga but have absolutely no clue how the community works! Today I read all the chapters of "Is this girl real!" that are available on the site and I enjoyed it. I enjoy all genres so if you can please leave some suggestions!

Also this is my collection, I already have a long list of wants to add to it, but I'll also take title suggestions for my new born collection. Currently only 2 months old. <3


Current titles include: Otoboku, OniAi, Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, The World God Only Knows S1+S2, Guilty Crown, Physic Detective Yakumo, Tsubasa Chronicles, Kanokon, Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka, Katanagatari, Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko, Kobato, Kimi ni Todoke, Fooly Cooly, C- Control, Eden of the East (TV), Project K, MM!, Special A, Broke Blade, Linebarrles of Iron, The 1st Berserk Movie, Aria the Scarlet Ammo, Madoka Magica (Rebellion), Trigun and Clannad After Story.

But my two most precious items in my collection are my Fate Zero and SAO sets.

Note: This is my forum debut on crunchyroll Hope to see you guys around!

Edit: I have Toradora and the 1st and 2nd Madoka Magica Movies on pre-order.

Sankarea is a really good manga series that's being printed right now.

Furuya's obsessed with zombies. He collects any figurines, watches any movie, and plays any game with the living dead, and is even only interested in zombie girls. When his cat dies, Furuya begins trying to raise it from the dead using an ancient book of the occult he bought from a shop. But what will happen when he sees the idol of a nearby all girl's school walking close to where he conducts his experiment, wishing to die and be reborn as a different person? - MAL Description

Romance/comedy with a tad hint of a harem in the near future.

Other series that I enjoyed are Scientific Railgun, Deadman Wonderland, Attack on Titan & Nisekoi

Some anime that I would recommend is Psycho Pass & Steins;Gate

Manga is a horrible addiction. I absolutely love it.

I am currently somewhere around like 110 manga volumes collected so far, I started about... almost a year ago now I guess. Getting close to filling up my bookcase, gonna have to figure something out about that once it is full...

I personally don't collect anime. I will just watch what I can on FUNi and CR, and if it goes away. It goes away.

As for recommendations, I won't give any. My tastes are wide and varied, specifically I will read/watch every genre so I have no specific tastes like most people. Also there are other threads that answer those questions better than I can.

Also new to the manga collecting except for the 25 chapters i have of bleach from when i was 16:
What I have so far on myself so far is attack on titan 1-12, blood lad 4, blue exorcist 1, Magi 1-3, nisekoi-1-3, naruto 63-65, and sword art online: Aircard(not worth).
What I'm reading on my MangaStorm app is Silver Spoon, Akame ga kill( which is completely awesome and should be looked into), Highschool DXD, and the rest of nisekoi. I mostly use the app to read at work because for some reason if you bring a book everyone wants to talk to you about it.
What i plan on buying is the rest of Blue exorist, Deadman wonderland, and claymore

Your lack of Spice and Wolf needs to be rectified. Get everything, the two seasons of anime, the currently 8 volumes of manga and the currently 11 volumes of the LN... GET THEM ALL!

Other than that I would recommend checking out Funimation's SAVE section. Get some older series for about 20 bucks, hell I just picked up Mushi-shi for 25 bucks and that was with shipping and handling. The only complaint that I have with it is that they have SAVE in big letters on the cover.... ruins the cover a bit but you can't beat the price and the DVDs themselves are perfectly fine.

Also if you interested in a newer shounen action series I'd recommend The Seven Deadly Sins. Only the first few manga volumes have been released but its very good for a light action series to read.

As of right now I'm only at about 10 volumes. I have never been really hard into the manga, but after Spice and Wolf it has really started to pick up.

Looking into spice and wolf, I liked the animation so I looked into it. For everything it's just under $215 with my %20 discount from rightstuf. :)
Though there were 10 graphic novels and 13 novels. Not 8 and 10

This is a collection purpose thread though and its personal, while I guess other people could ask on here for their collections. Not all manga is able to be bought that can be read online. I would consider them different.

And shhh!!! I'm incognito, ofc course I know it's spelled Pensacoala

Btw, I did not know that! I loved the animation of Haganai I hope the manga is just as funny ^-^

I'm not big on reading in general. I've gotten some mangas but I don't really buy them usually unless an anime I like doesn't come back with a new season fairly soon. A recent one I bought was WATAMOTE mangas. Only thing is the mangas released in English right now are as far as the first anime season went @_@. But more are coming out in months to come. So yey new content. But you should check out WATAMOTE, see if ya like it.

Haganai is currently up to vol.7 (1-6 covers season 1 of the anime while 7 finishes it and starts season 2) and it is as funny as the anime with a few minor changes as far as the timeline is concerns.

and the Pensacola thing it's just very noticeable to me cause I live a little to the east of there

Shrapnel this is my favorite post so far for multiple reasons. The 1st being not all of these are already anime so quite a couple I have no clue what they. 2ndly II was told that two are really good manga but not the best anime -Genshiken and Aku no Hana-

Edit: I'll fix my city name if you really want
