I like to read my manga online.

I usually read them online if available, to see if its good or not or if its complete. and if its not complete and is good also available in English i would buy it. :relaxed:

Both! Manga is like crack (for me).
I spend about $100 a month on licensed manga that I find appealing and I download tons, too. Most of the stuff I download is either not licensed or has been running forever (Naruto, Bleach, etc). So long as its got an ending and is a reasonable length, I try to buy what I download, too.

well.... i don't buy manga online because i don't know how to. i know i'm such a dork. T.T but at least i can download mangas.... :)

I usually read them online >< but I do buy some to support the authors :YAY!:

I read all my manga online, only because my parents wouldn't let me buy manga. T.T

I read a lot of manga online but when I get a favorite I go ahead and buy them or since I live in Japan, when a group isn't scanlating fast enough for me :D I just go ahead and buy it so I can find out what happens next. Then I usually figure out that the mangaka is also not moving at my pace...
anajoekool - March 12, 2008 01:39 PM (GMT)
i read manga online, since i know im not gnna read them again. its a waste of money.
anajoekool - March 12, 2008 10:35 PM (GMT)
i would rather read them online than buy them. i guess its cheaper n easier that way.
LightDreamer - March 16, 2008 07:39 AM (GMT)
I read the manga online first and if I'm really in love with it then I'll buy it as well so I can have a hard copy <33 xD
willnira - March 17, 2008 03:36 AM (GMT)
I read it online.
There was one guy I didn't know in the store and he was watching me all the time. It was scary! Q_Q! (I almost pee on my pants-Ok I'm kidding xD!).
kevmasterzoc - March 18, 2008 04:47 AM (GMT)
i do both
online if its unlicensed or if it's completely scanlated.
buying for the licensed if they are not full scanlated online (though i still do buy some of the good ones) i have to set a lime of about $100 a month. if not i would be spending like $300-400 a month on manga
inacutez - March 20, 2008 02:32 AM (GMT)
of course online... ^_^
but if the manga is really interesting i don't hesitate to spend my money on them.. :hahaha:
kssling - March 20, 2008 04:09 AM (GMT)
humm... usually i read them online... it's easier.. and frankly it's really really expensive to buy manga's where i live.. *sigh*
Aishitex3 - March 21, 2008 02:06 AM (GMT)
I only download or read them online ;o i thinkk buying it is a waste if you can find it online :)
orchidpearl - March 21, 2008 04:39 AM (GMT)
I read manga online, since it is cheaper and I am able to delete manga easily if I am not interested in that particular manga anymore. One other thing is that there are manga out there that really are classic and a good read that is not licensed in the United Sates; therefore, I am grateful for the translators, editors, proof-readers, etc. for their work in those mangas not in the United States.
swissbaby - March 22, 2008 11:07 AM (GMT)
cause where i live they dont have mangas D:
kandi - March 23, 2008 11:05 PM (GMT)
i usually download manga to read it. There's a wider range of mangas to choose from and there are so many great mangas that hasn't been liscensed yet too! however, i do occasionally buy them if i find anything new or interesting ^_^
if i had a job... i'd be able to buy more.... T.T

I usually read online, because I live in chile , and here is very difficult to find manga, so is easiest to read online.
But when I found some manga that i like I always bought it.
nycmango - March 24, 2008 02:52 AM (GMT)
I def read and dl my mangas since there are no bookstores around me that sells mangas and esp not a lot of the ones I read are licensed or has not been distributed. I care not I just like to read the ones that arent around for sale. I also thank scanlators for doing this I love you guys! :HIYA!:
hatake - March 24, 2008 06:18 PM (GMT)
i read it online because i don't even know where to get them.
moonlit123 - March 29, 2008 01:28 PM (GMT)
Reading online mostly. Its easier and faster.
I usually buy only when i couldnt find the manga online ^_^
magnafia - March 29, 2008 11:06 PM (GMT)

tiki808 - March 31, 2008 05:52 AM (GMT)
most of the manga i have read was online but when i find a manga that i am absolutley crazy for i buy it because i want to own it and read it whenever i want hehe there are many manga that i wish were licensed so i could buy it
mitsukai - March 31, 2008 02:45 PM (GMT)
online. i have never bought manga since i don't have the money, and besides it is really more practical reading it online.
dysania - April 1, 2008 04:16 PM (GMT)
i usually read them online, and if i really like, i'll buy them in japanese so i can both own them and study>_< also because they're WAY cheaper
katsura - April 2, 2008 12:24 AM (GMT)
i download unlicensed manga, if it's avaliable in my language (and it's good) then i buy it, especially if it's one of my favorite authors
harouki - April 2, 2008 12:26 AM (GMT)
I buy mangas that i've been reading online when they become available
other than that, i just read online
xsuiren - April 2, 2008 01:17 AM (GMT)
i buy only if it's good enough to keep lol.
Like death note and fruits basket >w<
bbyprecious - April 2, 2008 06:49 PM (GMT)
i used to read them at the stores until i started downloading them and it was great because there were a lot of mangas you could read
dewi - April 8, 2008 08:04 AM (GMT)
i USUALLY READ ONLINE OR DOWNLOAD SINCE BUYING THEM IS SO EXPENSIVE
Starry Dreams - April 15, 2008 06:05 AM (GMT)
I tend to read a bit of manga in stores and I only own 3 volumes of volumes of manga. Each is a different manga xD 1 was a present and the other 2 I bought at separate times.
Most of the time I just read online or download
simplicityhunnie - April 15, 2008 07:30 PM (GMT)
i mostly read it all online cause its easier (& cheaper) :D but i also buy mangas.. only if they're worth it :)
muffinsh4rpie - April 17, 2008 11:01 PM (GMT)

devilangel786 - April 26, 2008 09:59 AM (GMT)
