A lot of old volume 1s so guessing it wasn't a huge week in terms of sales. Still nice to see Gangsta. & World Trigger though; can't remember seeing them on the list before.

Where do you buy these manga books?

I checked my local comic store but they have mostly comics.

The local library here has more manga than my local comic store.

I heard you can just request a volume and they will buy it, when it's available, you can place a hold to check it out.

I saw Akame ga Kill anime. I was told that around episode 20 and up. That's when the anime was altered.

If you are looking for manga volumes I would try these retailers. Barnes and Noble if you have one near you usually has manga. They might not always have what you are looking for at the store, and beware of their condition. Barnes and Noble website also has a lot more manga you can order, but I do not think they do preorder from when I looked. Amazon if you do not mind shopping there has a lot of manga and their preorder is the best that I am aware of. Their condition of Manga is also very good when they deliver when I have bought from them. Right Stuf! is a website that has a good reputation and specializes in Anime and Manga. I do not know about their preorder of manga if you are interested, but it seems good at a quick glance. They probably have the most extensive catalog of manga at Right Stuf. I would recommend shopping around more online if none of these options work for you or look into other stores that might carry Manga where you live by calling. I hope this helps you in your search.

I would say Barnes and Noble has the best library of manga available out of any book retailers. At least the one closest to me does.

I go there to just browse really, the prices are "Eh" because you can get them cheaper through RightStuf, and plus if you're a Got Anime? member, you get an additional 10% off. And you get free shipping if your order is over $49, and it's always best to buy manga in bulk.

Jeez, I sound like I'm trying to sell RightStuf... But seriously, I find that to be the most cost efficient when buying manga.

I agree Barnes and Noble is the best store to go to, but I buy usually online from Amazon. The only time I bought from Barnes and Noble was their buy two get one free sale of Viz Manga. Barnes and Noble places stickers on the outside of volumes, and I found one inside fortunately little to no damage done. They did not have all the volumes I was looking for at Barnes and Noble. The reason why I shop at Amazon is because of gift cards I got. I agree that buying in bulk is best, and if you have the means to shop where you want to Right Stuf! is probably the best option.

thank you guys Smile + kudo/like for all!

There's a Barnes and Nobles store just 1/3 mile from me. It's about 5 minutes by bicycle.

I'll check it out tomorrow.

No problem. But I would seriously check out RightStuf if that's an option. They sell it at least 2-3 dollars cheaper.

And their Got Anime? membership is like 12.99, so if you go with my method on doing the bulk buying of $49 or more, the money you save on your first order should already cover half of the membership fee.

Good luck on finding the stuff you want.
