I used to work at a bookstore. Let me tell you this, the person who's going to be in trouble if your parents or an adult find out you where sold an 'adult' manga? ME. Not you. if it's got a 'rating' of any sort that identifies it as being sexual and I sell it to an underage child it's me who's going to get in a lot of trouble because that could be considered selling you pornography.

It might be annoying that you can't buy your favorite manga because of one or two scenes but it's annoying for me because I am being asked to ignore the law and put my job at risk.
Iíll tell you what people look like, really: they look like flames. Or like the stars, on a clear night in the wilderness.
