The biggest problem I have when collecting manga is collecting ongoings when I have like 12 series in my collection that are done and still have yet to complete. And yet they keep bringing out so many great series uhg! Holding back is the hardest thing for me.

I no longer collect print manga because a) a lot of my favorites are now out of print/expensive/hard to find, and b) I live in a studio apartment with little space for it.

HOWEVER I am amassing a lot of digital manga since I have a computer that converts into a tablet. I know it's not the same, but it's still collecting.

I managed to get the full series from a Dutch secondhand webstore about a month ago, €56 euros, shipping included :3

60 dollars, but i didnt know some volumes were hard to get . But my favorite series would definitely be GTO, It's the first manga I read, and the first manga I bought. For me, that series is priceless, and I'm so glad to have it complete. I hate it when great series are out of print. I would have loved to have the physical copies of "Mushishi", but I'm not gonna spend $300 on a single volume :') If there is 1 series that should be reprinted, it's that one.

don't blame you, i've given up a few series that i wanted because i've found that some of the volumes are unattainable. that's why i stopped getting any toykopop that i don't already own, and others

I collect manga it's been my hobby for 9 years now. I like the idea of supporting mangakas and it's nice to have the mangas then you can read them anytime

I collect them, though I sold some of my collection back in like 2011-2012 when I stopped reading manga and watching anime.

Got back into collecting around 2013 probably, but I have only really gotten into it this past year. A quick count gives me 164 volumes of manga in my collection right now..

My favorite series is probably Claymore, as it was a series I got into before I took a break and one f the series that got me back into it. Black Cat also played a role into getting me into manga again so I like that series a lot as well. Claymore is my most expensive set though, since each volume cost me $15, and I have the entire series of 27 volumes.

The only series that I was able to collect almost completely was switch. The rest were random mangas.
