I love manga and for some reason every time I read a manga I feel that I need to buy it and I've read about 60 no joke and love the real manga in my hand its like a sign of being a true fan!

I agree with you, to an extent. Yes, it's an amazing feeling, holding the manga, but at the same time, it doesn't make you a "true" fan. It just makes you a fan with funds to pay for it.

Also, how long have you been collecting? Just curious, since I've purchased about that much this past school year alone.
First foray into the forums: May 31st, 2012.

Not at all. I don't think I've bought one manga, I've always read them online. I blame the industry -- if they published simultaneous English versions I would be first in line to pay for that, but I'm never going to buy manga 2 years after it was originally published. I don't know what the legal situation is like, but it seems like it would be easy to get a translation published directly to Kindle. Think about that -- 99 cents per issue, they'd make a killing. > <

I do :) I actually wait for the release date and buy it online just to secure a copy. I collect manga because I want to own a manga library.

Does that sound weird?

It depends if I have enough money saved. It kinda depends on the price as well. If they're cheap, I do buy a lot at a time.

I also want a manga library! Which is why I buy manga whenever I can get a good deal! I also sometimes buy a first issue for full price to gift to people. But I'd say the most manga I've bought at once would be about 20.

If I have the funds, I buy them in bulk. But, I enjoy saving money for more important things such as food and education. I wish I could go crazy buying them though

I go kinda crazy when I am at a store, but not online. I can't just buy one thats for sure. I usually buy at 2-3 unless I have alot of money to blow.

Yes, I do.
I alyways go in the shop with the intention to buy ONE Manga - and when I come out of the shop again I spent at least 20 € on Manga.
Let alone the "AAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWW!!!!! That Manga finally came out!" *jumping around and kissing the Manga*

Yup. xD I rarely ever get to buy manga now, so when I get the chance to order online, I end up splurging. I will only buy manga on sites with promotions or discounts though. So many series are unreasonably priced these days.

Im kind of new to manga, but what ive been doing is using my extra money to buy shortish manga series. and then once i finish it order an other one. Its cheap and easy i think, and i really dont ever plan on going to crazy on manga or buying a long series like bleach!

I go crazy buying anything game or manga/anime related.

I was supposed to just order one Claymore Volume the other day and .hack//Infection (game), ended up ordering 3 Claymore Volumes, .hack//Infection, Lives Vol.1 and Darkstalkers/Red Earth

I go slightly crazy, when I go into the store, I always have the intention of buying just the one I want and leaving, but I end up grabbing at least 3 or 4 every time.

I used to buy lots of manga each month, often 30 volumes or more. Nowadays I try to restrict myself a little because I don't have that much money (and space on my shelves xD), but I still buy around 10 books each month (sometimes more if I find a cheap offer somewhere).

Usually about 2-3 every 2 weeks, I used to buy more than that but my local waterstones closed so I can only get it when I go into London as that was the main place I got my manga. Unfortunately, my mother hates me buying stuff online, so I'm kinda limited to where I get my manga from
