So I've reached a problem where I don't know whether to buy Manga digitally or physically.
I don't have a lot of space to put any shelves to display it and i feel it would be easier to maintain and keep if it was digital and at the same time I save space but would have to spend over $200 to buy a tablet. My main problem is just the price of the tablet and the space of the memory of that tablet that puts me off of purchasing it since I don't know how much memory each manga will take up. Anything opinion helps.

I personally would like to have a shelf full of manga, but in your case since you don't have much space left it may be better for you to purchase manga digitally. Now you don't have to buy a reaally expensive tablet, I recently bought a kindle fire that is only £50 ($65) and is perfect for reading manga and ordinary books. If you also need more space you can just get an SD card with a larger memory.

I like both. If the digital manga is cheaper (There's an SAO manga you can get for FREE from Amazon...), I buy that instead.

Thats what I thought but I read that the best tablet for reading Manga has to have a screen bigger than 8 in so it captures the whole page and doesn't cut out reading material

that's like asking if it is better to buy digital novels or physical novels

obviously one is cheaper than the other

obviously one you can actually hold and collect

idk that one is "better", it's whatever you personally prefer... or can afford. Physical manga is ridiculously expensive

I prefer physical manga tbh.

If you are going to buy it, physical copies are nice.
And if you take good care of them, you can resell them later if you no longer want them.
Digital...well you can just read manga online then without paying.
So there is no point in doing that.

There problem I see in using Manga online without paying is that if it's pirated or without the authors consent then they will lose money and that can cause some damage to them since they won't be able to put out new content and site like Crunchyroll that have authors consent don't have all the Manga that you might want to read so that's another reason why I'd rather buy the Manga at least in my personal opinion.

This is why I miss, Blockbuster. I'd rather go out and get the physical copy of something than digitally buy it. Just like all the books I buy.

Physical copies for pretty much anything. Especially textbooks, and stuff like that for learning.

physical copies. Save on energy, and you have them for life, and you dont have to strain your eyes while looking at it.
