    If you're lucky enough to have a shop that carries the original Japanese ones it only costs $4~7!! (Depends on title and if its old or new)

    ...but we still keep buying them...damn...T_T
    There are some stores that sells them cheap the highest is 8dollors..Last time I bought Love Hine the novel, Elemet Guard and Got .Hack free{The story from blackrose.}.And it was like a total of $10.42 or less since I got a member ship which take an extra 10% of.. But can't rembered what the price was after the discount.

    Oh yeah anyways there are like two good websites that sells cheap manags and the good ones too.

    I guess it is a pain... and cost differences are weird... like how Tokyo Pop is usually $10, Dark Horse $14, Shojo Beat $9, Shonen Jump $8... But my friends and I still buy them... but we lend to eachother, so that cuts down on price a bit haha.
    Wo shi zhen zhen zhen xi huan ni...

    Thank you Equinn!! ^-^

    I don't think it's that much considering how thick they are compared to American comics.

    Re: Manga should cost less...

    In Singapore, each manga cost about 5-8 bucks, so let's take it as almost 10 per book. I recently just bought whole set of Prince Of Tennis which eat up quarter of my savings.... *Sigh* but it's worth while.. Do you guys rent or buy manga?

    I'm not really sure. The last time I checked it was 4 or 5 dollars for one issue and it's really thin compared to a manga.
