A fair lot still prefer the printed word, name manga you have on your wish list and manga titles you've stopped buying for various reasons.

Here's my list

Titles I've stopped buying:
Kimi ni Todoke - stopped at vol 10
Bride of the Water God - stopped at vol 8
Dengenki Daisy - stopped at vol 5

-felt like they got too draggy.

Titles still languishing in wish list:
XxxHolic Kodansha omnibus editions
Ikigami

Kimi ni Todoke for sure. I watched the series, love it, wanted to read the manga, but only got through volumes 12 and 13 before life got in the way.

I am actually debating buying World Trigger. I just find that series fascinating and I really like the characters.

I dropped Bleach. Wanted to try it, just kept putting it off (and it's wasting space) so I'm going to sell it on ebay soon.

Priority is still completing Eyeshield 21 & Slam Dunk.
After that I plan on starting Lone Wold & Cub.

Well, The ones I dropped are the first mangas I started to buy. I dropped them because they are long run (They take up too much space, I prefer 6 complete different collections instead of one that isn't even finished yet)
So, the ones I dropped are One Piece, Naruto, Fairy Tail and Dorothea

I want to start my collection of Madoka Magica, Vagabond and Gurren Lagann soon! o/

I don't know if there's the american version of Sora no Otoshimono, but if you are buying the japanese version because there's no english version, you could buy a different version (Of course, if you doesn't know japanese). For example, there are the portuguese (br) version of Sora no Otoshimono! =]
It's just a suggestion though, I think it won't be as hard as translating from JP~ENG ^^

I would just buy them and then read the scans online, I rather have Japanese manga than Portuguese/Italian etc.

I dropped Vagabond. i have the first two omnibus volumes, but dropped it to focus collecting other things (Golgo 13 & The Sandman). i dropped Tenjou Tenge after four cmx volumes for the same reasons but may get back into that with uncensored omnibus editions available
I also dropped Rose Hip Zero because it wasn't that good to me

I started collecting Parasyte, only 8 volumes (technically 10 but Kodansha re-published it in 8). 4 so far. Waiting for more coupons from B&N so I save on every volume.

There are a couple of series I started collecting but then found them at a local library to save money, like Blue Exorcist and Detective Conan.

I would like to start collecting Slam Dunk and Eyeshield 21, one because I like sports anime/manga, and also because Viz seems to be using those 2 series sales as a benchmark for picking up Haikyu!! which is what I really want.

Most of the series I collect is because they aren't available digitally, which is my personal preference, though I may want to collect A Silent Voice when it comes out because I loved reading the series on CR and it will only be 7 volumes, though I may get volumes 2-7 digitally.

Wanted to collect Vagabond, but a lot of the volumes went OOP, so it's forever on my drop list.

Same with BLAME!

They're both excellent manga in my opinion, let alone sports manga. It was tough collecting these when they had loads of OOP volumes. But thanks to Viz's reprints last year, it shouldn't be a struggle to collect them all - brand new - at their normal prices.

Good luck!

I bought the first three volumes of Seraph of the End, but I haven't bought any since. I mostly started buying it just because I wanted to buy World Trigger so badly but it wasn't out yet, but I still wanted to buy a manga, lol. The art is pretty, but I don't love it enough for 8+ volumes.

I don't know if it counts, but right now I only have four volumes of Hunter x Hunter. I only bought the ones with Kurapika on the spine... Sometimes I think I would like to have the rest, but all those volumes take up so much space, and a lot of that is the Chimera Ant arc, which I didn't enjoy all that much.
