    Re: How Come Americans Don't Read Manga?

    ^Prices have come down from that here in the states. You can get manga anywhere from 6-16 dollars. Most Tokyopops are 7.49, some of viz's stuff is 5.99. Del Ray and Dark Horse have the higher price points 10.95-16.00.

    Ero-manga is like 20 bucks a pop, that price I can't get my head around.

    Re: How Come Americans Don't Read Manga?

    I myself read manga religiously. I own about 50 books, and I have more coming in the mail.

    I actually prefer Manga over anime, because more often then not the manga expands on the story. A prime example of this is Kare kano (His and Hers Circumstances). The anime only covers the first 7 volumes of the manga, and there are 21 volumes in the manga series.

    I hear that, I found that, often, when I have ques. 'bout a peticular anime series, if I read the manga; it'll clairify my confusion (if I have any) and answer (usually) all of my ques. I often like ta read a manga along side watchin' the anime version, so that way I can do that.

    Sanity doesn't exist, it's just an excuse cooked up by crazy people to justify their actions. My myspace page: www.myspace.com/joemage

    I agree with the second person about the stores and all that. Because I love One Piece and book stores won't carry the books past books 13 or 14. It sucks butt!! but yeah I read manga and I live in america too.

    Plenty of Americans read manga. Just the other day I was in a Texas bookstore and could barely move because there were so many people camped out in the manga section!
