Got some new manga .. again

I’m badly addicted on getting manga. Since it is so cheap I can’t stop buying it and for some reason I feel happy after I buy it, am I a weird person or what ?

but anyway, I’m trying to collect couple of full manga seasons but it seems to be a bit more difficult than I thought, one day I should just go in with a wallet full of cash and buy all at the same time!

Seriously if you like Manga or games and you are poor like I am, go to that Enterking store ! (I can give you directions on the ones I go to) and start shopping !

Happy with some new manga

Today will be a shopping day, a bit in akihabara and then to buy new shoes ! I’ll post some photos of my current shoes and you see why I want new ones !

uhm it’s only 7.48am I think I should go to bed at least for couple of minutes

First Manga update!

マンガ Manga madness 
Here is all the manga I have collected in Japan so far. (of course I have more in Finland).

I will get much much more before my time here is finished tho. I did not like manga before I came to Japan, I was all about anime at that point but after I started reading them here I really got in to them.

Manga is very easy to buy in Japan, there are a lot of cheap places to get used manga and also cheap places to get new manga. Enterking and mandarake are two that I use a lot ! 25-300 yen manga I love it !

To think that a normal price for manga here is about 495yen to 1500yen!

I will start editing photos from the park yesterday soon but can’t promise when they will be up since the internet I am using here at Chiba is not the fastest. Could be today or tomorrow or sadly even Sunday. I’ll leave my computer uploading until they are up !

Rainy day today so I’m probably staying in 🙂

Akihabara Shopping day!

With my girl this morning we went to ginza so I could quickly visit Citybank to get some cash ( since life doesn’t go on in Japan just with Visa) . From there we jumped to the Hibiya line to Akihabara and started shopping at Yodobashi akiba, my girl got a cute cover for her new iPod touch and I got a new proper bag for my lens.

We also ate at the upstairs of Yodobashi. I recommend it at lunch time since most of the restaurants there have that lunch menu so pretty cheap ! I Took photos of the food and everything as always that I will add in the next few hours.

After we were done with Akihabara we left to Gyotoku ( which is pretty much my home station) and there of course to my manga shop to get some great and cheap manga ! as in the photo you see I did get some nice ones today as well !

I’ll soon check the rest of the photos that I have in my sony and then I will upload them to my flickr while my girl is cooking Japanese curry for dinner.

That lowerpro is a great brand for camera bags! I like it a lot, I have now erm 4 bags from them (2 shoulder bags, small and a big one . a bag for my pocket camera and also now that new lens bag) . I should get a good big back bag that fits all my lenses but not in a hurry yet 😀

Manga got in Japan

Bought my first manga

Some of the Mangas I have now bought here.

Little bit of Mai hime and also the season two Mai hime Z and couple of HunterxHunter as well

also yesterday I got manga of my favorite anime Fairy tail was lucky to find that one 😀

Best place to by manga for me is a store at Nakano,shibuya and akihabara which name I can’t remember right now, I’ll tell you about it later, anyway you can get one manga for 100 yen and 3 for 200 yen 😀

Thrown away Manga!

Look at all that poor manga!

I do know that this is more than normal but still watching all that manga being thrown away makes me want to rescue it!

If you are sharp enough, you can see a lot of Weekly jump or other Manga in the trains as well after business men left them there while being in a hurry. I have to be honest and say that couple of times I have crapped one of those and started reading.

To imagine that for example in Finland one of those weekly jump manga “books” costs about 6-10 euros which in Japan costs about 300 yen if I am not mistaken which is about 3 euros. I haven’t bought a weekly jump in a looong time since I started to collect normal size manga books but it is nice sometimes to read weekly jump as well.
