As I'm constantly rotating manga on my shelves, I tend to pull out series that I adore or am currently reading and stack them in front. However, that causes my OCD tendencies to flare – the problem: volumes printed in Japan and US have either the cover facing up or the title facing up, but not both. What makes it worse is if any of the books were printed in a country that has BOTH the cover and title facing up (e.g., vol 6 of Vassalord below is in Italian). I find the whole issue annoying and unsightly, but unfortunately unavoidable.

How do you prefer to stack your manga?

I haven't had to stack manga recently since I got a larger bookcase, but when I did it was always prioritizing the title being readable (title up). I really dislike when there is any sort of difficulty to read the title with any book on a bookcase/display (that also applies to dvd actually, title being easily read is a must)

I don't stack, I got a book case just slide them in from one onward and I'm good to go.

In general, I prefer to align my books horizontally with the front cover displayed up since our book case is now gone.
