Just a quick heads up. I started watching Dimension W on Funimation and yesterday I saw an advertisement that the Manga was being released in English. I think the release date was on 2-27-2016. I really like the show a lot so I thought I'd check out the manga and saw it was around 13 bucks plus shipping. I haven't really ever bought any manga before and I've been wanting too and then I noticed it was out in ebook format so I checked that out and it was only 2.99 and I was like heck yeah so I ended up buying it for my Kindle Fire and I have been enjoying it so far. I like that you can zoom in and out and eventually I'd like to collect in in paper format also but for 3 bucks you really can't go wrong. I guess I never relized that they released manga in ebook format so that was pretty cool plus it helps support the anime. The more books they sell the better chances of getting more seasons.

Anyway I just thought I'd let everyone know in case you'll didn't already know. The book is actually pretty good and so far from what I've read it seems the anime is closely following the manga but the manga just goes a bit more into depth on some things. I think the next volume comes out in March or April. I don't remember which and I'm hoping they'll release all of it in English so I can read the whole story. Besides letting everyone know about it's release I also wanted to ask a couple of things.

1. How do you prefer to read your manga? Paper format or ebook?

2. Do you buy manga? A lot or just occasionally if you really like the show?

3. What is your favorite manga so far? Any good suggestions would really be nice because I'd like to start buying a few more series and I'm not even sure where to start.

Oh, you can find the book in all of the major online retailers like Amazon, B&N, etc. I don't know what the rules on posting links are here but I don't really like posting links anyway. You can also look up the show on Funimation and they have a scrolling advertisement on the shows main page that gives the details on the manga's release. I really wish Crunchyroll would get that show. I like using Crunchyroll a lot more. It's just easier to navigate plus I love the community here so if they can ever get it that would be really awesome.

I just bought a copy of the book. I can say this the paper format is really cool! It glows in the dark which is awesome! Yen press is the publisher for the book and yeah there prices can be a bit high at times, so buy at your own discretion.

In case anybody was wondering how far it goes Vol. 1 covers the first episode and a 1/2 but goes into more detail explaining things a bit more.

Now I really want to get the paper format. I want to see it glow in the dark lol. The price isn't too bad especially considering you can't buy much for ten dollars these days anyway. I just didn't know if I wanted to pay that much for something I wasn't even sure if I'd enjoy so I just bought the cheap ebook version but I had fun with it and it was a lot longer than I thought it would be which was nice. I really think I'm going to start buying the paper version too although I HATE waiting on books in the mail. The book does do a much better job of explaining some things but so far from what I've read the anime is following the manga pretty closely, nearly word for word which is awesome. I want to see if it stays that way or if it deviates any. I wonder if the manga is any further along in the story than the anime?

I buy manga once every couple of months or so, and I always buy paper if I can. I just like the feel of reading paper books over digital ones. In terms of tastes, I'm a sucker for shonen, so I like Blue Exorcist, Magi, Deadman Wonderland, Bleach, and My Hero Academia, among others. For seinen manga, Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer, Berserk, and Ubel Blatt are my personal favorites.
