I read them mostly digitally, but if I really like them I get a physical copy.

I buy physical because I like being able to hold something I own in my hands

I used to be die-hard physical, but lately I've been buying digital because 1) instantaneous manga and 2) it takes up FAR less room on my little apartment bookshelf to just put my iPad there rather than piles upon piles of manga.

I prefer physical books.
Every now and then I may skim an online site for ideas on what to read next (sometimes I catch myself getting hooked on a series :p ) and I do use Viz.com's free digital preview to see if I maybe interested in a series, but then I will go out and get the physical copies when they are available.

I do like reading manga digitally (like on CR or through our library) because you can read them faster than they're released in hard copy. (some of the time)
I also check out a lot of (physical books) manga from the library.

If I like a series well enough, I'll buy hard copies of it.
I'll check out the half priced book stores first, then Amazon, and last, I'll try and pick up copies at the regular book stores. It keeps the cost down so I can buy more than one at a time. lol

I do the same thing with novels.

There is just something soothing about hard copy... maybe because I used to work at a library. lol

Physical copies all the way, due to their authenticity.

Definitely physical if possible!


yeah if possible for me as well allways good with a paradox.

no loading/errors or awfull spacing like online stuff would take so much space for 1 page if more mostly less detailed or some other problems while in a book can be easier and all.

I recently bought my 100th Manga volume. (Accel World Vol: 3)

Digital Manga is disrespectful... Manga is art, it should be enjoyed in real life, not over the web.
Well, I like my food, water, clothes etc in physical form. So maybe I'm just an old goof.

Btw Amazon owns a book store called "The Book Depository" which have close to all offically english translated manga and ships for free world wide, if you're looking for a nice place to buy physical copies you should check it out.

Physical. When you buy a volume online, you dont really feel like you actually own something. But if you physically buy it, then its part of reality as oppossed to being in cyber space...

Physical copies whenever they're licenced and available. Even if I've already read something online years ago, I would still get the licenced copies when I can. I don't mind reading manga online, since some stuff is really for a niche audience or not as popular to be licenced.

Digitally. However, all my favourites are physical copies.

I much prefer digital. No physical space to lose, can put a bunch on my iPad and take them with me easier than print, or blow it up and see it on my 27" screen, less expensive and I really don't like the spell of a printed book. Plus I can buy an eBook and be reading in a minute, opposed to having to drive a store or wait for a shipment.

I do have a bunch of print volumes. The one big advantage is the increase in DPI you get from print. I got a couple as gifts. I do prefer getting and giving things as a gift that are physical opposed to a code on a printed piece of paper so I got some print volumes of some of my favorite series. And then there are many series that are only available in print, but I will only get those if I really want it.
