I was wondering what your manga collections look like.

What series do you have? How many tankoubon do you have? Any merchandise? All that sorts of things.

I, myself, have not a big collection of tankoubon, since I am a student, I don't really have a lot of money to spend on manga, sadly. If I would have enough money, I would get all tankoubon of Detective Conan, since that is my absolute favorite manga. I already have a few of them, but not even close to all.

I also have some manga magazines, which I bought, while I was in Japan. Of course they are in Japanese and so I can't really read them, but a Weekly Shounen Jump was just a must buy, while I was there.

I don't really have any merchandise, except a little Gundam figure, which I once got from a Japanese friend.

As you can see, I only have a very small collection, even though I am a manga fan for a long time, but that is all due to the shortage of money, which you have as a high school student and then university student.

I guess, my collection will grow rapidly, when I got a solid job or a frequent income, which is high enough for living and those things...^^

My collection is pretty sad. In Brazil, or at least in Rio, comic and book stores only sell the translated, national releases, and if you want an original tankoubon, you'll have to look for a specialized store for imported goods - which may or may not actually have what you want and will probably overprice the shit out of it.

Most of what I have are the translated Brazilian versions, and most of them are incomplete, the oldest ones being full of mistakes. My incomplete series are:

  • - One Piece (halfway through Skypiea)
  • - Saint Seiya (up to the battle against Death Mask in the 12 Houses saga)
  • - Dragonball (up to the beginning of Cell's Arc)
  • - and the first volume or so of other series such as Hunter x Hunter, D.Gray-Man and Fruits Basket.

The complete series I have (the Brazilian versions of) are

  • - Magic Knight Rayearth
  • - Card Captor Sakura
  • - Ribbon no Kishi by Osamu Tezuka
  • - Märchen Prince

...which are all relatively short.

As for original, japanese releases... I have:

  • - 1 Card Captor Sakura
  • - 1 Kare Kano
  • - 2 Kingdom Hearts (Chain of Memories)
  • - 22 of Violinist of Hameln's 37 tankoubons + a special book
  • - 1 Shounen Magazine (with a chapter of Tsubasa R. Chronicle from the Acid Tokyo Saga)
  • - 1 other magazine which I can't identify with a bunch of manga I never heard about
  • - 1 Gag Manga Biyori, which I'd never heard about and never had the patience to read through.

Other than the CCS and Karekano and 2 VoH volumes + the Special, all my japanese stuff was a gift from either an american friend or a distant uncle who traveled to Japan on business (he was the one who gave me the Gag Manga Biyori. When he bought the Hameln for me, the store clerk apparently suggested GMB as a similar. They're not the least bit alike, though).

I do hope to at least complete my Hameln collection someday...

I don't have any Japanese tankoubon either. The few I have are in German, too. Since it is really hard to get Japanese ones, where I live. They're either overpriced or not available, but the German tankoubon have pretty good translations, even though sometimes I notice parts, where it could be better, even without knowing the original text. But that might only be because, I spend my time on translating manga...^^

I literally only have the English versions of...

More Starlight to Your Heart (Motto Kokoro ni Hoshi no Kagayaki wo) - vol. 1
Negima! - vol. 1
Tsubasa: Resevoir Chronicle - vol. 9
Yotsuba&! - vol. 3
Rurouni Kenshin - vol. 1
Full Moon wo Sagashite - vol. 3, 7
Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne - vol. 1, 2
Gentleman's Alliance Cross (Shinshi Doumei Cross) - vol. 3, 5
...and one Shoujo Beat and three Yen Press magazines.

As for other manga-related merchandise, I have a couple of keychains, one figurine, and many art books...

Yeah, that's it. =3= Well, then there's the DREAM stuff...

Basically, I would collect anything related to the group called DREAM Manga... which is an online manga magazine for hopeful people who enjoy making manga. @v@

*is sooooo close to getting Ki's manga~~~* ;w; If I had more money, I would get what everyone has to offer...

I just got a new comic (no manga) added to my collection: Watchmen.

It was on TV the other night and I just loved the concept of Superheroes, that don't have any super powers. Even though they seem extremly strong (in the movie and comic). Also I really like the story. And especially the quote: "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes." (Who watches the wathmen?)

I am not done reading the comic, yet, since it has like a few hundred pages, but I really like the extras in it.

If I get some other new interesting stuff, I'll write about it...^^

Since I am cleaning up my room right now, I found a Dragon Ball Artbook, so another thing to add to my manga collection list from before.

I figured it was just easier to take a picture of my meager collection.

I own over 500 volumes of just manga. I lost count months ago because of laziness. I feel shy listing them all. I might if anyone interested, I can list them all here. Otherwards, here is the list of my "owned" shelf at goodreads. Note that not all are here since i may own multiple copies (of course in different languages) and some of them aren't in the site yet. :(
