You know, if you have a PIN for your library card, you can just place a hold on the manga you want off the Christchurch City Libraries website and they'll bring it in for you from whatever library has it. =]

(Although normally I don't bother with that unless it's something I really want - otherwise I end up having to go down to the library every two days or so to pick more stuff up. xD But it's better than running all over the city trying to find what you want.)


And if you want to buy manga, the only place that has a really good selection is Borders. There's one in Christchurch (at Westfield Riccaton) and I think one in Auckland too. They have some anime too, but never exactly what you want. xD

Yeah, I know, I can reserve books over the net, but I'm too lazy so I just read them on the net.

For borrowing (manga):

Auckland Public Libraries -
Central (in town)
Leys Institute (Ponsonby)
Point Chevalier
Online: http://www.aucklandcitylibraries.com/
You can see what libraries have books, and reserve them online if you're a member.

For buying (anime):
The Gamesman - New Lynn
JB Hifi - Lynnmall
Friendly and knowledgeable staff at both stores, but you can talk to them for longer at Gamesman if there isn't many customers. :D

Lol.. I read it off there as well!! I usually get my manga from the library or online if I'm desperate or borrow it from friends.

As for anime I download some and my friends give me some too.

Cool! I never knew there was a renting place by Hoyts 8 >.<

Been there 2 or 3 times with friends. Since I live out East. Lol.

I like them at Armageddons with the ichiban kuji. Well, Id say that because I walked away with a giant Klan Klan PVC last year.
