I'm wondering how large your manga collection is and what you have in yopur collection.

My Japanese collection consists of:

-Yuu Watase-
Gomen Asobase
Shishunkimiman Okotowari Manga Series 1 (1-3) Series 2 (1-3) & Epilogue Book

-Arina Tanemura-
Kanshaku Dama no Yuuutsu

-Don't Know-
Wedding Peach

My English translated manga consists of:

-Johji Manabe-
Outlanders (all)
Caravan Kidd (1 and 2)
Your Under Arrest (both released volumes)

I have a small collection.

What about you?


02-13-2003, 07:34 PM
Um...My English...takes up a full 3 shelf bookcase and two boxes. My Japanese takes up...one box, a full 4 shelf bookcase and one drawer...
Don't ask about my Anime collection...thats a whole nother story.

02-13-2003, 07:39 PM

02-13-2003, 08:53 PM
I would list my manga, but that would take a little while. I think it would probably take up 3 shelves of my 5 shelf bookcase, but I don't know cuz most are in boxes and random places. If you're curious, the last time I took an inventory in Nov 2002, I put it up on my For Sales page:


heh ^^;; I'm plugging at the same time... ^^;;

02-13-2003, 09:10 PM
I have about 30 different books ^_^ my manga collection isn't nearly as extensive as my anime collection. One of my best friends, on the other hand... @_@ she has more manga than the bookstores has...

02-14-2003, 03:29 AM
Too many to count all english manga and japanese art books. Let's see Ranma 1/2, Peach Girl, Chobits, Wish, Angelic Layer, Inu Yasha, Shadow Star, Juline, Rayearth, Marmalade Boy, X, Fushigi Yuugi, Videogirl Ai, Kare Kano, 3x3 eyes, Ah my Goddess, Cardcaptro Sakura, PLanet Ladder, Mars, Whats micheal, Utena, Ayashi no Ceres, Saint Tail, Sailor Moon, Cloverm, Shadow Lady Sorcerer Hunters.

Waaaaaaahhh! Everybody else has soooo much manga! And so... so... cool! Like Yami no Matsuei (I would KILL to read that!) or Gravitation (See previous), ooh! And how do you people afford all these manga? Personally, I first have to pay 40€ to get to a city that sells manga, and then it's 13€ per volume. And veeeery limited, indeed. Only Viz and Tokyopop, I suppose. And all, oh, so, English. :( So, I have:

I LOVE MANGA. I had Fake 1-3 but lost them in my recent move... I used to have a lot of others, too, but I've sold a bunch of random ones on eBay. I listed them how they are on my shelf. ^_^; I'd have more if I didn't spend my money on other stuff like cosplay. T_T I have so much more I want... and so much more I've read. O_o I want Dr. Slump, Alice 19th, I''s, Naruto, Gals, Hen... Bah! The random numbers there (of stuff like FY & CCS) are 'cause a friend gave 'em to me. *nods* Aaand.. yeah. Blah. I was so into collecting X, and then I discovered other stuff such as Shaman King & HikaGo and my attention was diverted. *^^*; Need to buy more!! Argh! *dies* Not to mention last time I went to store, I blew my money on a KOF artbook and the Rayearth re-releases. Err and the Rayearth re-release are the new ones released in Dec '02 with the smaller volumes and new covers. :D I hope 4-6 are coming out, too!!

Wow, what a ramble... It's definately past 2:30 am.. Sorry!

02-26-2003, 08:36 AM
I just started collecting in July so I don't have a lot... only about 160 volumes. It takes up 2 shelves (well I started stacking another row in front of the other so technically 4 and a half... yeah I have some stacked on top too).


02-27-2003, 10:15 AM
Well, I don't know about my Japanese collection right now, but here is my English one:

Ranma 1/2 - #1, 4 (don't ask, I don't know why I didn't buy 2 & 3, it was so long ago...)

Akira - #1, 2 (they're expensive!!!)

What's Michael? - #1 (very cute manga, any cat fan will love this one)

Mars - #1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Love Hina - #1, 2, 3, 4

Shonen Jump - #1, 2, 3

Raijin - #1, 2, 3, 4 (i'm missing 5 & 6), 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

Super Manga Blast - (I know I have issues of it, just not which ones)

I probably forgot something...oh well.

02-27-2003, 10:33 AM
I have quite a bit of manga.
Btw, they are all in Japanese. ;)

Yuu Watase manga:

Alice 19th 1-6 ~ Imadoki 1-3 ~ Ayashi no Ceres 1-14
Appare Jipangu 1 & 2 ~ Fushigi Yuugi 14 -18
Musubiya Nanako ~ Shishunki Miman Okotowari 1 -3
Magical Nan ~ Suna No Tiara

Yuki Kaori manga:

Tenshi Kinryouku (a.k.a. Angel Sanctuary) 1-20
God Child 1 - 5 ~ Shounen Zanzou

Clamp manga:

X 1-18
Fushigi No Kuni No Miyuki-chan


Yami No Matsuei 1-11 ~ Angelique 1-9 ~ Alichino volume 1
Ludwig II 1-3

I think that's it. And I have a lot of shoujo manga magazines: Hana to Yume, Sho-Comi, Lala, Asuka, and Crimson. Believe me, it costs quite a bit to suscribe to these (because of the s + h charges). But I love the freebies, though. ^_^
Oh yeah, and I have some doujinshi, like a Xenosaga Enix Supercomic, volume 2. And some Final Fantasy 7 doujinshi. I would like to find Xenogears doujinshi somewhere.

02-27-2003, 08:45 PM

Nene, what do you mean you don't have that much manga as the rest of us!? Your collection is huge! (And I thought mine was.) Wow, that's a lot. I only buy my manga when I go to Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. Thank God for Kinokunyia Bookstore! (I can never get out of there without spending less than $100. Gee, no wonder I'm so poor when I leave CA! lol)

02-28-2003, 11:49 AM
My collection is not all that big, but when I lived in japan I read lots! The only problem was I couldn't take them all home with me (as it was I filled up almost an entire suitcase!)

Sailor Moon (two complete sets)
Miss Rain (like 5 copies!)
Code Name Sailor V (complete series)
Battle Athletes Daiundokai (two complete sets)
Battle Athletes Daiundokai TV version (complete series)

03-30-2003, 11:56 AM
I just recently started to re-acquire large collections of manga at once and I can't remember what I have right off the top of my head. These are the ones I'm currently reading (and thus are out of the storage boxes and sitting neatly by my bedside):

Naruto: Volume 1 through current
Shaman King: Volume 1 through current
Fruits Basket: Volume 1-10
Blade of the Immortal: Volume 1 through current
Alichino: Volume 1-3
Chobits: Volume 1-6 (JPN)
Chobits: Volume 1-4 (English)
Card Captor Sakura: Volume 1-6 (English)
X: Volume 1-9 (English)
Paradise Kiss: Volume 1-4 (English)
Peach Girl: Volume 1 through current
Angelic Layer: Volume 1-3 (JPN)
Hearts Sugar Town

I used to have quite a bit more but I sold a ton when I needed to pay for Otakon '02. O_o The rest are buried in boxes since I can't put up my bookcases.

03-30-2003, 02:03 PM
I think a better question is "How in the world can you afford so much manga!" I I dont understand where everyone has the money for all of this, PLUS cosplaying, PLUS anime or whatever else. X_X

My (rather limited ) collection

English -
Utena 1
Chobits 1-3
sailor moon 1

Most of the books are used but in impeccable condition because many of the kids overseas read the manga once and then they sell their entire collections. :D

My collection is small, but always growing ^^

Japanese - X6-18, excluding 15, Yami no Matsuei 3-6, Tokyo Babylon 1-7, and Cardcaptor Sakura 1, 2, 11, 12, and 6 (6 is bilingual)

English - X1 + 2, Rayearth 1-6, Evangelion 2 + 3, Utena 1, Cardcaptor Sakura 7, and Fushigi Yuugi 2-6

Artbooks - Tokyo Babylon Photographs (loooove *_*), first Cardcaptor Sakura Cheerio! artbook, and the US releases of the second and third Cardcaptor Sakura manga artbooks.

I afford my manga by buying a few volumes when I have money, or talking other people into buying it for me (my dad got me TB 1-4 for my birthday a few weeks ago). I actually have almost stopped buying anime, because the DVDs are so expensive compared to the manga. And the manga is more portable. I really love artbooks, though...if I had the money, I'd have shelves of them, I think ^^
