Just wanted to pop in and say hello.  My 11 year old daughter is now obsessed with manga and anime, thanks to her friends.  And manga books are, like, $10 each :/  We borrow from the library, but her goal in life right now is to own all the books from Ouran High School Host Club, Madoka Magica, Death Note (she is "in love with" L), Soul Eater, and Sailor Moon.  Since she's only 11, mom (me) is strict about what she can read/watch...for example. I gave a big N-O to Hetalia: Axis Powers.  Anyway, just a quick hello.  I'll be popping in occasionally to see if there are any deals, as I know how highly wishlisted most manga is.

Ouran High is very popular ^^ but I suggest watching places like ebay or popular book sites for awesome sales - gohastings.com has some pretty good deals on used books plus then have sales on used books ( which are often like new in quality.. ) which makes it even more affordable. Anyhow Sailor moon is awesome~ I personally as a parent would be more concerned with death note ( or even madoka magica... ) than Hetalia - can I ask if there was as specific reason why the no-go on it? =) I think I learned more about history from that show than all my history classes in school put together - then again maybe that says something more about me than the show.. I'm not sure lol!

 

Good luck on the collecting! Death note is finished ( 12 plus some novels.. ), Sailor Moon is finished ( it will be easier to find the newer re-printings than the older ones. So that's 12 plus 2 short story books ), Soul Eater is over at 25 books... Ouran has 18 and Madoka... well there are ..what? five different series out about it right now i think...

If you ever have any questions about manga feel free to send me a PM ^^ I have been collecting and trading for over 13 years now. =)
