Is this board even about manga anymore?
Can we get a manga buyfag thread going? Post your recent pickups
Pic related. Just picked up the Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind box set. 2, 500 page hardcover mangas for $40 on amazon.

The buyfag thread is a general buyfag thread. We don't need separate ones for different purchases. Lurk more.
I can understand the need for a separate thread for manga purchases, since the buyfag threads consist almost exclusively of statues/figures.
I'm pretty jealous there, OP. I just ordered the first four volumes of the new Dragon Ball 3-in-1 prints.
Nice. Omnibuses are really the way to go
>since the buyfag threads consist almost exclusively of statues/figures.
No, it does not. Buyfag is already secondary content as it is, one thread is more than enough.
Fuck off. let the poor anon have his thread. If it bothers you that much, you can always go and iron more creases into your pants.
My primary concern is that, though they're supposed to be uncensored, the first volume's first printing was done with the censored material by mistake. I'm not sure if they've done a corrected printing yet, or if that's the one I'll receive if they have.
Why does it concern you so much, if you don't care for them? There are other threads that could use your attentions in a positive light, rather than making it your mission to complain here.
Not that anon, but that's not the issue here. If people like OP actually posted their manga purchases on the buyfag threads, maybe more people would talk about them there. I lurk them a lot, but I don't buy many figures, so I almost never have something to talk about. Having people posting manga/printed material purchases other than doujinshi is nice.
About half the threads are about manga you twat.
There's already a buyfag thread.
Fuck you, all buyfaggotry goes into the containment thread.
Wow you are mad as fuck.
but you guys should post in the buyfag threads, don't start making threads when people ignore what you brought.
We used to have manga shelf threads all the time, and my ass isn't participating in those creepy figure filled threads. OP is fine.
I want to order TLR manga from Japan but I'm scared of going to prison
You see, this kind of question is answered in the guide. And where is the guide, you ask? In the fucking buyfag thread.
Suck my dick. I didn't ask you shit. I already know what is written in the guide.
You should go to prison. Regrettably, liking things I don't like is not a crime though.
What country do you live in? There may be an importer you can buy from. Kinokuniya in the US for example.
Fuck your cum stained figures dude, grouping everything into general threads is a shit practice.
You worry about the silliest things... or maybe you live in Iran or something.
Why are mangafags such pretentious cunts in general? If you don't like our "creepy" "cum stained" figures, you should fuck off to somewhere more on your level.
We fucked of to a separate thread, didn't we?
Says the guy that came in here 'you can't have this thread!!'
Get off MY board, normies. Right this instant.
>My primary concern is that, though they're supposed to be uncensored, the first volume's first printing was done with the censored material by mistake. I'm not sure if they've done a corrected printing yet, or if that's the one I'll receive if they have.
What? Ah fuck. I bought it not know that. I haven't read it yet, seeing how I read the scans just shortly before buying it.
How bad is the censoring supposed to be?
I wanted to buy the two Omnibus for "Message to Adolf".
Do you think they're worth it? Or should I rather spend the 40$ on something else?
I know I could read them myself, but I'd prefer to go in blind if I decide to buy them.
Well, if it's not the reprint version, Bulma's shower scene is censored with bubbles, they edited her middle finger to be her index finger when flipping off Pilaf, and the black guy who works for the rabbit bandit has his lips whited out to avoid being offensive. The lip editing was atrocious in that instance, but they simply chose to recolor the lips in the other volumes so they weren't as pronounced.
I guess no suggestions?
Read shit before you buy it or after a few decades you'll be swimming in manga you didn't really need to buy.
I'm fine, I can buy them here in Germany.
But ordering the artbooks from Japan? Nope, will not risk it.
I don't buy stuff unless I think it's something nice, that deserves to be bought.
I asked because it's fucking Tezuka and it's always nice to have something of his, but if I can read it directly on paper it would be twice as good.
Yeah, they literally just erased that guy's mouth and left it white. That way, instead of having larger lips, he looks like his mouth is hanging open in a stupid expression the entire time.
Black friends, would you rather have your race depicted as having pronounced lips or as if you're dumbfounded the entire time?
Then buy it. I pretty much buy anything Tezuka that crosses my path.
