I'm not sure about my local library now, but in my old town they didn't have much. I vaguely remember a few Naruto (of course) and Mars volumes, and I wasn't interested in either of those. I'll have to check it out again though. I love physical copies and it's just so expensive to keep buying volumes


If you happen to live in Middlesex County (and not Woodbridge or East Brunswick) they do a partnership with each other. You can take out titles from any of the participating libraries and return them to your own library if you wish. You can search for them at a shared library catalog here.

If you live elsewhere check with your local library they may work with others as well.

Thanks for that I'm actually just below that, in Monmouth Co, and I went on their site after reading this thread and I found they do have quite a few series in there now! Going to head over to one soon and get a new library card and take them all out XD Thanks for the idea!

Cedar Bluff is about 8 miles from campus, if memory serves. It's tempting, should I ever find myself wandering that area again. Hodges doesn't seem to have much, I tried to find the Miyazaki films last month and Nada.


Ok, I know now not to bother with the UT library for manga should I decide to go there. Personally, I don't use the library a lot as they don't have full collections for much other than Death Note. If you want to buy, Books a Million on Kingston Pike/Walker Springs has a huge amount of manga in stock and they can order ones like Psyren and Hayate which are not always in the store for you if you ask.

Just Naruto, Vampire Night (or is it Knight? I forgot xD), a volume of Higarashi, a volume of Fruits Basket, and Uzamaki. The rest are OELs or marvel graphic novels. I read all my manga online anyways and buy LNs that are released stateside.

last time I was a a library was my high school library and for some reason they had volumes 1-27 of Rave Master acouple volumes of naruto and trigun. that rave master though was awesome. That was 7 years ago, I just bought all of Rave Master on amazon, total cost over 1000$, totally worth it. volumes are in brand new condition. I kinda just stirred off the subject of library's haha

My town library has a pretty good selection, but there's another library in our consortium that has a huge selection. Luckily, I can request volumes from any of the consortium libraries to be delivered to my library, so that gives me access to most series I want to read.

what's manga?
Posted 1/18/15
They have a lot of volumes, but only of popular series like Prince of Tennis, Naruto, Bleach, etc. Although they also have some classics like Rave Master.
