    Getting Anime and Manga: Is it easy for you?

    Hello everyone! Now, it is different for us all when it comes to just how easy it is for us to get anime or manga and me and my curious self is wondering how easy it is for the people here on AO to get it.

    As for me, it is fairly easy for me to get anime. I can usually find tons of anime episodes on the internet and the ones I can't get I just rent through Netflix. As for manga, it is a little harder for me to get it. I have to go out of town if I want to get any sort of manga. And since I am a poor teenager and each manga costs up $10 usually, I can usually only buy 2 volumes. And the only manga I have ever found posted on the internet is the manga that have become shoot-through-the-roof popular (example: Naruto).

    To put it simply, I have seen a lot more anime compared to how much manga I have read but hey I try.

    So how about you guys?

    My only way to get both manga and anime is basically the internet and stores who sell over the internet.

    Getting anime other than on the internet is a lot easier now than it used to be. Most of the major electronics stores now carry a wide range of anime, and they're all pretty close to me. Problem is, it's more expensive to buy it in the store than search the internet for a good deal.

    I'm not really into manga, but I've noticed that large bookstores like Borders have a pretty big selection.

    Yeah, you can get some really good deals on anime through the internet. animecornerstore.com is one of my favorites. I love their prices! You can get an uncut boxset for like $40. Music to my ears!

    The local Barnes and Noble has an OK selection of manga and other than BestBuy, there's no other option locally for anime. Mid-Michigan is kind of a black hole for anime and manga, among other things.., unless I'm missing something. There's just not much here. So, I buy, probably, 95% of my stuff on the internet. Buying on the internet from the comfort of home is REALLY nice!!

    Manga is actually really easy for me to buy, all i need is the money. But animation is a little harder, because there's very few stores in Denmark that actually have a fair amount off animations
