My younger brother borrowed Yotsuba from his school library, why am I raging?
>>
no idea.
>>
Because its easily accessable from the school library?
>>
Doesn't seem to be anything to rage about.
>>
.. They carry mangas in school libraries now?

RAAAAAAAAGE
>>
Why?

Yotsuba is great for everyone
>>
i don't think you have a brother, enjoy your Yotsuba.
>>
>why am I raging?
i have no idea why, there is no reason to rage.
>>
If any mango would make it into a school libraby, Yotsuba would.
>>
>>10025033

I have no clue. Maybe you should borrow it for a bit, read a chapter or two and calm down.
>>
>>10025033
YOTSUBA IS FOR ADULTS FUCKING NEWFAG TEACHER GTFO RAAAGGGGEEEEE

You're an idiot for raging, Yotsuba in an average person's eye is a kids comic book, even though much of it can relate to adults.
>>
>>10025058
they have for a while now
>>
>>10025058
Yeah that's the only thing that seems off. Why the hell is manga in a library? Am I just getting old?

Other than that. Everything is okay.
>>
I read the first 3 volumes of Yostuba& at Barnes & Nobles yesterday. I didn't buy any of them ^_^
>>
because underage faggots are gonna read it and go: "this is that japanese porn right?"
>>
you are a huge faggot
>>
>>10025033
At least they don't have copies of Absolute Boyfriend and Bleach like my sister's library.
>>
>>10025125

I work at a Border's and the people that do this drive us up the fucking wall.

Don't sit in the aisle and block shit.
>>
Absolutely no idea.

>>10025125
You're a retard.
>>
>>10025145
well maybe if you shits had some FUCKING CHAIRS this wouldn't be a problem.

Barnes and Noble have these awesome comfy chairs that you could fall asleep in and all borders has is a bench
>>
>>10025185
IT ISN'T A LIBRARY
>>
>>10025145
this is why i rage when i go buy manga at borders (only because of the coupons i get). gtfo so i can pick something out. don't sit on the floor and block everything like a pompous ass.
>>
>>10025268
Not to mention ruining the books. Yeh, you might take good care, but you'll still leave finger imprints on the pages.
>>
>>10025238
you're right, libraries have worse selection.
>>
there was Mai the Psychic Girl at my school, but they took it out, cause it had boobies
>>
Well shit, better that than fucking MEGATOKYO.
>>
>>10025145

But I sat down at the Starbucks that they had there, I didn't read in the aisle. I also hate people that sit in the aisle.

You got a problem with the seating arrangements in my shop?
>>
>>10025145

I didn't sit in the fucking aisle. They have a Starbucks in Barnes and Nobles and I read it at one of the tables they have there while I sipped my frappuccino. I also hate people who read in the aisles. Someone did it the other day and I couldn't get a look at the shelves because he was fat.
>>
Please don't read in bookstores. You are inconveniencing both the customers, and the employees.

Honestly, don't put the employees through that shit. They work at a fucking bookstore, and have to deal with all kids of shit. Treat them with respect, buy your book, and leave/sit at a designated area.
>>
People need a reason to RAAAAAAGE on 4chan now?

Why didnt he just steal it?

You make that sound like that's a bad thing. I think it'd be a pleasant job.
>>
>>10025738
it's a teenagers job or it's for the unskilled and uneducated adults

>>10025145

The wonders of being customer X.

I pick up a manga and read in the designated chair in my local bookstore because I know the manager personally.

It is true that sitting in the aisle bothers the hell out of them, so don't do it.
>>
I actually went into a local Waterstones recently, and bought the first 3 volumes of Busou Renkin. As I was walking in, I thought "I bet that thing about their always being guys reading and not buying is just an exaggeration.".

I found the manga section only to see two guys, both about 18 - 20 standing there reading and they didn't move once.
>>
>>10025777
Holy shit, are you a britfag?
>>
>>10025759
Or, you know, any student, not just teenagers.
>>
>>10025831
Yeah.
>>
>>10025777
Funny, same here. I usually go in on a weekday, so I rarely even see people there; but a friend of mine said there around 5 or so young girls in there just sitting down reading manga.

So I went in there today and lo and behold; there they were.

Pity my local didn't have volume 1 and 2 of Busou Renkin.
>>
>>10025900
Oh wow.
>>
>>10025777
I forget which bookstore it was, but last time I went: I bought Only Revolutions,, sat down in the cafe section of the store, and read it/drank some hot cocoa.

I don't understand why people read in the middle of the aisles.
>>
>>10025922
>>10025777
What I'd really like to know is WHY would you buy Busou Renkin? It' readable at best, but not buyable. I really tried hard to like it since the valkyrie skirt girl is hot and I liked the Kenshin manga, but the storytelling, fights and characters just felt too weak and uninspired.
>>
>>10025922
>Girls
Lucky bastard. When I went it was a tall, average looking, nothing special guy, and a spotty sweaty fatass.

>>10025924
What's so special about being a britfag?

I go to the manga section to take a look at the manga and make sure it is all still shit I can get online, see if there any chicks to hit on (there never are any) and then go to the world history section to buy real books.

No but I buy manga because I don't like to sit in front of the monitor for hours reading images.

Then again I'm on /a/ all the time. See that thing in the back between Rave and Death Note?
>>
>>10026241
Amazon
>>
>>10026219
Though it is true I spend most of my disposable income in booze, you could still buy better books, manga, anime, movies or whatever instead of Busou Renkin. I don't know about you but I can't afford to buy every damn manga series or anime DVD that comes out.
>>
>>10025777
Imagine finding 10 people there and the aisle is like barely 3 feet wide. If I was going to read mango in the store, I would find a chair, stand up and read it, or go to a section of the bookstore that people don't visit often like World History!

Sometimes I like to make them move from the shelf constantly under the pretension that I'm looking for mango for the lulz.

But I rarely buy from Borders now, especially I can find mango for $2, brand spanking new.

And I'm not gonna tell ya either.
>>
>>10026307
DIFFERENT PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENT TASTES.

Papi alone is enough for me to buy the series.
>>
a)spend your extra money on manga and read it at home, alone anyways

b)read manga on the monitor and spend money on something useful.

c)don't read manga at all and have sex with a girl
>>
>>10026279
Pshh... why even bother to take a picture of such small collection?
>>
>>10026279
Fuck, you wasted money on D. Gray-man and Suzuka?

Would you tell me?

LIKE LOOKING INTO A MIRROR

But yeah back on the original topic, despite it being a bit weird to borrow japanese comics from a library, it's sort of a good idea since that's a lot of saved paper.
But man, wonder how many other girls "used" this volume of Fruits Basket..
>>
>>10025777 I found the manga section only to see two guys, both about 18 - 20 standing there reading and they didn't move once.
I hate those faggots. Once I found a fat guy sleeping in the aisle. Disgusting.

>>10026356
I never knew you guys were such faggots, I'll be leaving /a/ now. Bye.

Get a better camera, christ.

On the other hand, that's a fuckton of money spent.

Shit's blurry, son.

No.

>>10026373
And nothing of value was lost.
>>
>>10026312

where do you find it for $2? Local store or online?
>>
>>10026389
Different anon, but I didn't spend more than $2K-$2.5K on my collection.... and I think I have about 350-400 volumes of mango...
>>
>>10026389

A local store. I'm not saying which city.

FUCK YEAH REBORN!

What languages are they in? I noticed some look different than the moon ones.
>>
>>10026541
Chink, because they're cheap and my sister doesn't read moon.
>>
My high school library had one corner devoted to comics and manga. About equal amounts of both, though most of the comics were some higher-level reading. The manga was Fruit Basket and other girly-romance crap with the really cheap artwork. There was Azumanga Daioh and Arika there however.
>>
>>10026630
To be honest I love Fruits Basket's art. The character design is fucking win, though yeah, the rest might be a little bit mediocre. But since it's shoujo, it's not like the mangaka could do anything else without radically changing her style.
>>
>>10026487 Cable and Deadpool on lower shelve.

You're my kinda girl/fag, wanna fuck ?
>>
>>10026681
All those shounen would imply that I'm a guy. Also, /co/ is full of C&D fags. You could fuck them.
>>
>>10026705 All those shounen would imply that I'm a guy.

Girls read shonen, guys read seinen, habeeb it.
>>
You faggots actually pay for these things?
>>
>>10026808
I should post my sister's shelf. The amount of shoujo on it makes me cringe.
>>
>>10026823
not only do they pay, but they're proud to spend what little money they have on this shit, to support the American manga community.
>>
>>10026857
>Girls read shonen, guys read seinen, habeeb it.

Proving him wrong?
>>
>>10026808

actually i know a girl who reads vinland saga
>>
>>10026848
What's wrong with shoujo?
>>
My library started carrying every FAIL title out there. Naruto, Inuyasha, Bleach, and Fruits baskets.

(Hellsing among them, however.)
>>
>>10026898
hellsing is in the same league as naruto and bleach
>>
>>10025130
Fuck you Absolute Boyfriend was good :(
>>
>>10026862
But the american manga community is a pile of shit.
>>
>>10026924
Whoopsie.
>>
>>10026869 Proving him wrong?

Not really. I know a lot of girls which read both shonen and shoujo.
>>
>>10026943
exactly
>>
At my local library, there was awesome shit like Buddha and Phoenix. But it was my local library not my school's.
>>
>>10026862
>>not only do they pay, but they're proud to spend what little money they have on this shit, to support the artist.
Fix'd for you.

>>10026808
Girls read seinen. Hell, my little sister exclusively reads seinen. The only shounen she likes are Eyeshield 21, Death Note, and Flame of Recca. And the only shoujo she reads is After School Nightmare (FUCK YEAH!).
>>
>>10027138
you didn't fix shit nigger
>>
>>10026808
why not just say everybody reads everything.
>>
>>10027165
Oh really?

I buy the mango because sometimes I want to actually support the artist that spend pretty much the majority of their life (unless they're Togashi or Kentaro Miura...) on entertaining us. Am I saying to buy every mango out there? No, but don't be a total fucking pathetic leech either.
>>
Seinen is my favorite genre, though I do admit to having read a few shounen series too. I hate shoujo though, never touch any of it, the artwork alone is too unappealing. I'm a girl, too.
>>
>>10026857
Prolly not manly enough for it.
>>
>>10027238
I read josei, seinen, shounen, and shoujo... basically anything that would entertain me. Unless it's ero guro. I don't do ero guro.

You need to read some Kaze Hikaru and Your and My Secret.
>>
>>10027238
Seinen is not a genre. Neither is shonen, nor is shojo.
>>
>>10027221
send them donations instead of giving it away to shitty translators, faggot
>>
Yotsuba is shonen isn't it?
>>
There is a lot of good shoujo you just have to look for it.
>>
I raged once I found out my high school library started carrying graphic novels of many kinds. Why the rage? 'cause they started doing it in the last couple of months before my graduation.

If nothing else, I'm glad that I got the chance to read V for Vendetta (years before the movie was released, if I may power up)
>>
>>10027408

Its seinen
>>
>>10027395
Said the person who most likely don't read moon.
>>
>>10027408
it's actually seinen
>>
>>10027515
>>10027486
Oh ok. But isn't Dengeki Daioh a shonen magazine?
>>
>>10027544
http://www.j-magazine.or.jp/data_001/man_6.html#001

My high school's library started circulating manga shortly before I graduated. In fact, I helped the librarian over there choose some of them. I just happened to be at Powell's Books when she was browsing their selection. She recognized me and asked my advice on titles.
>>
>>10027565
I guess your right, it is shonen..
>>
>>10027445
How do I look for it then?
>>
>>10025033
Because he is growing up and will soon replace you
>>
>>10027580
High School had a very few collections, one series I remember was Ranma 1/2, but my school had a lot of american comics, even simpsons
>>
>>10027509
lol fags
>>
Wikipedia lists Dengeki Daioh as shounen, but I know this can't be. I mean, c'mon, it has Gunslinger Girl.
>>
>>10027709
Such a winning comeback, dear sir!

says the person who thinks he can read moon
>>
>>10027955
Actually, I can.

OH SHI-
>>
>>10025121
"Manga is so cooru and kawaii nowadays. We need to import manga so that we can get kids to use the libraries more. Hey, I hear that Naruto thing is the hip thing to read nowadays."

Manipulation and politics at its best.
>>
>>10027972
Such a winning comeback, dear sir!
>>
>>10027999
And I forgot to add...My high school had all of the translated Bleach and Naruto volumes in stock. Nothing else other than Volume 1 of Evangelion, Volume 1 of Fruits Baskets (;_;), and Volume 3 of Gundam SEED (they didn't purchase v1 or v2. I wtf'd).
>>
>>10028014
Yeah, it was.
>>
>>10026487
I'm not trying to be a dick here, but do you ever re-read any of these books? I only follow about 5 or 6 series and I'm a few volumes behind on each and I rarely get a chance to go back and re-read any of them. I don't see the point in spending so much money when you can get it for free, theres a few titles I just like to have on my shelf (or support the artist if you wanna be all gay about it) but I would never buy half the shit I read on my computer for free.

>>10028180
Agreed.
>>
>>10028180
I usually re-read them once in a while.

On occassion, I would re-read the whole series again as I get a new volume. I did that with Please Save My Earth.

But I usually collect mango that stopped scanlation, the scanlation group is so fucking slow or I love the series so much that I'm willing to buy it although I read it already.
>>
>>10026241
Holyshit, THAT much?

Glenat's French edition is a 7,5-8€ a volume.
>>
>>10028180
Yes I do, mostly.
>>
>>10028376

Yeah, it takes the piss abit. Everything is priced £5 apart from Dark Horse stuff
>>
yotsuba's not a bad manga. in fact i like it alot. i find the fact that his school loans out manga (and apparently not bad ones) impressive.
