    Question Tell me...

    So every time I go to my local bookstore *cough* Barnes & Noble *cough* I go through or past the manga section (they don't have Priest anymore so I stopped caring) I always see people (mainly kids) sitting down in the aisle reading a manga. So tell me, why they do that? I mean, I would just buy my manga and then bring it home and read it so I can build up suspense on the car ride home. Do any of you do this?
    ...
    ...
    God I hope I put this in the right section.

    Cuz they are broke. Or cheap. Simple as that. That's why all their mangas have corners that are dented covers that are scratched with finger prints.

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    I sometimes do that myself. I only do it to read a new manga to see if I want to buy it or not. Most of the times I buy them to collect a series to go back and read later.

    Erasing my past one bad memory at a time.

    I think it is stupid just like people who come with other people just to "hangout" at bookstores! .... well it does not feel right while your buying a manga and they are reading it for free right next to you >.<....
    death and life are one and the same

    I have seen it before and find it rather pointless. It is not a library, and as such you are to buy the book, then read it, not put your own personal insignia on every book you sample/
    Why hello there!

    Personal insignia?
    Sometimes my friends and I hang out at the local bookstore, but then we leave if we don't buy anything in awhile.

    Ah, gotta love weeaboos. At my local Borders, they don't only squat, read, and mingle like the manga aisle was their living room, they even go as far as cosplay. It's absolutely ridiculous, greatly entertaining, and just hilarious to observe these animals in their natural habitat.

    Watch as the apparent alpha male shows aggression at the fangirl because of their coincidental and ludicrous costuming of an anime character known as "Sasuke Uchiha". Oh no. They flee in terror as an overweight goth kid dressed in an "Akatsuki" coat walks in and claims that he is "Itachi"; complete with evil laugh and melancholic and solemn expressions.

    Fascinating.
    I love my girlfriend.

    Sound like you're doing one of those discovery channel shows.
