Bought Physical copies. I don't buy digital copies since I got no money.

Have not bought any for these past years.

I want every media I buy in physical form. I don't like to have such in digital form, because that means I might end up losing it for good sometime. It's less likely that'll happen to a physical copy for me.
Having a digital collection is so lame. Much cooler to have a room full of games, manga, anime or whatever.

Hm, these days I read the majority of it digitally, but I like to find the ones I absolutely love and collect every volume~ It's so nice to have them all lined up ^_^

I started purchasing comics about nineteen years ago. I almost never purchase leaflet comics, since they're rather fragile. Instead, I choose to support trade paperbacks.

I thought about supporting JManga's online translations for a while... but then the site started to close down, and I heard frustrating stories about how customers' purchases would no longer be available. Several years passed. I started purchasing translated manga volumes on iTunes just a couple months ago. Right now, I'm hoping that Apple's digital books and comics will continue to work on its devices for quite a while.

Physical. I love the way it looks on my shelf, and I can appreciate the art a whole lot more with a physical copy in my hand. The physical books can also have some little extra goodies and artwork you can't really get in a digital copy. Plus I just love a new book smell

Yeah, I really like having a room full of awesome otaku/geek loot surrounding me. Makes me feel at home

With that avatar, I'd be surprised if you had said otherwise xD

I've only ever bought one series digitally through iTunes iBooks store (All 10 volumes of Happy Marriage?!), but apart from that almost always their physical copies...I never ever, EVER read unofficially licensed online manga scans

Music, films and for the most part games I get digitally but books I only buy physical copies. It just doesn't seem right to me to have a digital copy of a book. Space is becoming an issue though.

I buy physical manga and light novels. Nothing beats the feeling of having the book in your hand for me. I also like that I actually own the book and can sell it or give it away later, unlike with digital where it is tied to an account and is nontransferable. Otherwise, I use CR Manga occasionally for things I'm curious about and MGX which sadly has no print alternative.

I don't really like digital copies. I've always liked having things on paper (I'm a tree killer ) and I guess the same is for manga. I like reading things that I can flip the pages physically.

Only digitally since 2008. I love reading on my iPad :3 The fact that I do not need exterior light to read, that I can switch pages without having to physically turn pages, that I can zoom and make screenshots for wallpapers, that I have my entire collection under the palm and that it does not weigh a ton.

For me digital is the thing.

And one more advantage: reading with dirty finger does not end up with my manga being dirty as well. Just wipe the screen and here you go !! So much freedom and pleasure of having things as I like

I have so many physical copies of manga and books that I trip over them just walking across a room (I have 11 double stacked full bookcases and piles on the floor). If I knew someone who lived near me who wanted them, I'd give them all away.

Now I only buy and read digital, and I'll wait extra months just to get digital copies. I make one exception and that's for Natsume's Book of Friends, since I already have the all the other volumes in paper. (If Yotsubato! had more volumes in print I'd buy those too.)
