I certainly go insane when I buy manga. It's all I spend my extra money on. Today I just bought six novels of Death Note, completing my collection (Other than book one. I can't find it /anywhere/ at all). Although total they only cost $20, so it was a good deal.

My real question is most likely: How many volumes of manga do you usually buy when you go out for it? I buy about two-three at a time (other than today). Also, what was the most you bought in one day?

I used to buy around three volumes at one time but I don't buy manga anymore.

I normally just read mine online.
Good God, if I spent my money on manga as well I'd be probably a NEET or a college drop out waiting tables for the rest of my days. I already spend enough on video games! Then college expenses are killing me as well. Add manga to the equation and you got another unemployed bum walking on the streets.

Only if the chapters or several chapters were one of my fav from the other manga then maybe 1 volume.

Usually i read them online

I buy manga on bulk rarely. Usually it would have to be a really really good deal. (example) Naruto 1-55 on say ebay... for 250$

2-3 at fhe same time, but i try to look for them cheaper than normal price as a college student. So bargain books, used books, discounted books, coupons, and someone else's 'trash' is how i survive.

I have 356 mangas so far. ;D

Yeah, kinda, especially at Otakon. The last two years in a row I bought about 55 manga at the con, each year. There's just so much good stuff! This one place has 3 for $10, I go a bit nuts there too and at other used stores.

Not any more. Used to buy about 3-5 volumes at once, now I'm lucky if I buy one a month.

When a manga is awesome enough for me to consider buying it, I just buy the entire series at once. (that is, if all volumes are available)

But I don't own much manga. Either the stuff I read isn't worth spending money on or it just was/is never published where I live. The latter unfortunately happens quite frequently.

Sometimes I do, other times I don't. But when I order manga online it's usually five or six volumes at a time. I bought the entire series of Death Note in one go from a comic shop as well, and all twenty one volumes of Nana at a convention. It was on offer and I couldn't resist.

Anywhere from 3-10 volumes at a time. I like to reserve a hundred bucks a paycheck for manga and anime. The most I bought at once was when I got all of death note.

As someone as already said I usually read them on-line too but read them in the original book and have them it's totally different and although I don't have such manga as some persons I'm starting to get my furniture full off books,DVD's, cd's, etc. so it's difficult to buy more now, but when I've the chance ( money) I can't resist.

im mom dosent really like me buying as much manga as i do....... so i have to buy it without her finding out, she would rather me spend it on clothes or something "worthwhile". XD

I usually buy two manga every two weeks or so, but it really depends on what i can find in the bookstore

It really depends. because I am based in Aus shipping is Really Pricey, so to make the manga a reasonable (to me) price, I might buy 8-12 volumes. There are stacks of places where postage is $12-35 for a single volume!!!!

Three years ago was when things were bordering on obsessive for me. I was ordering anywhere from 10 to 20 volumes every other week. But within the last year it's decreased a lot. I think I've gotten maybe 30 volumes since early 2011. I'm not quite sure...I need to recheck but I think that sounds about right.
