Manga Collection

I’ve decided to finish collecting the rest of my manga series. It’s a lot more annoying hunting for these books now, Viz seemed to cease publications of the individual books, only omnibus and ebooks are available. Older copies that aren’t ex-library are much harder to come by. Also, these seedy used book sellers should STOP labeling their ex library as very good or like new wtf.
