Where To Buy English Manga

Due to the current state of the world, manga has been out of stock lately and some series have been out of stock for quite some time. But why are they going out of stock? It really comes down to the current state of the world, but supply and demand also comes into play.Manga has seen a huge boom in 2021 with sales more than tripling in the last year or so and because of that, demand has outgrown supply. On top of that, due to restrictions, production hiccups, like availability of printers, paper shortages, the shipping crisis with ports being overran and what not, it became even harder for publishers to keep up with demand.It was already a challenge for manga publishers to keep up due to an increase in demand, but this was all made worse in 2020 and beyond due to the unforeseen economic and production issues that would come due to the current state of events. For these reasons, manga is out of stock more often than usual and it has become harder and harder to fully complete series.I do want to stress though that recently serialized series, like Jujutsu Kaisen and Chainsaw Man, are not of concern and will be back in stock eventually. Please do not pay more than cover price for these volumes as they will return as soon as publishers catch up on production. Chainsaw Man, Volume 1 in particular is one that was out of stock for a bit, but has recently started hitting shelves at Barnes and Nobles again, so it looks like printing has resumed again for some of these harder to find, out of stock volumes. Here is a complete list of all the known manga restock dates so far.We aren't out of the woods yet, but as publishers navigate and overcome these new challenges, these issues should gradually get better over time and eventually be fixed.if(typeof ez_ad_units!='undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[250,250],'animecollective_com-leader-2','ezslot_10',671,'0','0']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-animecollective_com-leader-2-0');Out of Print Manga vs Out of Stock MangaI also want to talk about the difference between out of stock and out of print manga, because I often find the two are confused. Out of print manga are books that are no longer going to be printed by a publisher, such as the Initial D individual volumes released by Tokyopop. I wrote a post that lists all of the out of print manga that I'm currently aware of if you'd like to check that out. That post also includes tips when buying out of print manga and things to look out for.I also want to mention that just because a manga is out of print doesn't mean that it will never receive a new format release. For instance, the individual volumes of No Longer Human by Usamaru Furuya are out of print but Kodansha announced that they'll be releasing a Complete Edition of No Longer Human in the Fall of 2022.On the other hand, out of stock manga are series that are usually just temporarily out of stock, meaning that the publisher needs to print more volumes. More recently serialized series, as mentioned above, are definitely not of concern.Even though some product listings say out of stock, expecting more or temporarily out of stock, this doesn't always mean that manga book stores and sites will be able to get more stock. Books-A-Million states on their website that they'll reach out to a publisher and see if they can get more stock and depending on what they say, they could cancel your order.Manga sites and stores, much like us, are often left in the dark as to when or if a series is going out of print and they won't know that something is no longer available until they are told so by the publisher or distributor. This is something that has usually only happened to me with longer running series. If you want to learn more, here are some signs that a manga may be at risk of going out of print.Most times, though, if it's a newer series and it says out of stock you have no reason to be concerned!

where to buy english manga

ConsThey charge you immediately if you use PayPalReturns aren't easy and they make you pay shipping for returns even if something arrives damaged or incorrect unless you pay for their shipping protectionExclude certain items like manga box sets from free shippingFree shipping isn't unlocked until $75 USD for US ordersYou have to reach out via contact form or email to cancel items in your order whereas other sites let you do so with the click of a buttonTheir customer account and order pages could be more user-friendlyCustomer service needs improvementRight Stuf is one of my favorite sites to buy manga on, because they are constantly running sales and specials and they have some of the lowest everyday prices. Right Stuf is a site that always has cheap manga prices too.

I will say though that Right Stuf really is only worth it if you are able to reach their free shipping threshold. If you are based in the US, free shipping is unlocked at $75 USD. It used to be that if you are based in Canada, free shipping would be unlocked at $250, but unfortunately, Right Stuf have since removed free shipping on orders to Canada.One downside though is that Right Stuf exclude certain items from free shipping. In my experience, figures as well as anything that's heavier, like manga box sets, are typically excluded from free shipping. With that said, if you are looking to buy manga box sets, I have other recommendations below. But if you are looking to buy individual volumes, Right Stuf is definitely the way to go, because they have usually have the lowest prices for manga.Another thing is that they don't make it easy or cheap to return items. You are responsible for return shipping and it is up to their discretion whether or not your return will be accepted. They even make you pay for return shipping if a volume arrives extremely damaged or has issues with the cover or pages coming apart from the spine.For instance, I just had a volume arrive that's cover was coming apart from the spine and they told me that I was required to pay the shipping back to them. Unfortunately on a $7 volume, the cost of shipping back to Right Stuf doesn't make it worth the hassle of returning. And this was even when I paid for the shipping protection on the item.

Honestly, this has made me buy from Amazon more and more when they have similar sales on manga, because they have easy and free returns with their membership. To me, pushing the cost of shipping on the customer when something arrives damaged or wrong has always been a bad practice. If this is something that concerns you, I highly recommend Amazon or Book Depository, which I talk about more below. Both of these companies don't charge return shipping for damaged or incorrect items.One final negative is their user experience, especially when it comes to their customer accounts. For example, something that would be really helpful is a way to view all of your items that have yet to ship. They partially fulfill orders a lot so your order history can get really messy and convoluted and it becomes hard to tell what's arrived and what hasn't. Also a way to see estimated back in stock updates would be super helpful, like Barnes and Noble does on their site.Also, if you partially cancel an order, those items won't disappear from your order and don't get marked as cancelled, so there's no way to tell if your item(s) or order was actually cancelled other than the email confirmation you have with Right Stuf. It also makes it confusing when you go back months later to see what items still have yet to ship and see the volumes that were cancelled are still listed on the order.

You may be thinking, with those negatives why do you still buy manga from Right Stuf? What really gets me into trouble and keeps me coming back to Right Stuf is their sales and cheap manga prices. Not only do they run weekly specials, but they also have larger yearly sales, like the Right Stuf Birthday Sale. To see the up-to-date manga on sale, check out all that's on sale during the Right Stuf Birthday Sale 2022!Also I want to mention that if an item is out of stock, expecting more on their site, you can still place an order for that item. They will charge you immediately for the purchase though even though they don't have it in stock at the moment or if it's a preorder when you use PayPal. If you use a credit card, however, Right Stuf will place an authorization charge on your card to ensure you have the funds available, but they will only charge you the full amount when your items are preparing to ship.When you go to check out, make sure you uncheck their shipping insurance if you don't want it and make sure that free shipping is selected if you reached the threshold, because ground shipping, which costs a bit of money, sometimes gets automatically selected for some reason.Another thing they have is the Got Anime? Membership which gives you an additional discount of up to 10% off their prices and access to members-only special promotions. It costs $18 USD a year, and after using it for a year, it definitely pays for itself and then some if you buy a lot of manga.To sum things up, if getting the cheapest prices and finding the best sales on manga is your thing, Right Stuf is definitely the best option on this list.Right StufShop mangaBook DepositoryPros

ConsPrices are a bit higher than others like Right StufDepending on where you are located, shipping times may take longer. To see their estimated shipping times, check out Book Depository's FAQ.You have to pay return shipping unless your order arrived wrong or damagedBook Depository is another site that I've been using a lot lately. They have had some volumes in stock that I can't quite find anywhere else, so they are a great place to shop for manga. Their biggest pro though? They have free shipping worldwide regardless of size, value or destination. On top of all that, they run good sales, especially during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but they still don't run nearly as many sales as other sites like Right Stuf.One thing I will say to look out for when shopping their site though is to make sure the volumes you are ordering are in your language even if you've filtered your search on their site. For some reason, their filtering system isn't always accurate so volumes in other languages will still show up in the search. To give you an idea, Book Depository has volumes of Btooom! available in English, French, Spanish, German, and more, which is a plus to buying from them, but just make sure the volumes you are buying are in your language.You can also find them as a third party seller on Amazon from time to time. They usually have pretty fair prices, so this is something to look out for as well!Book DepositoryShop mangaAdvertisementsif(typeof ez_ad_units!='undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[336,280],'animecollective_com-large-mobile-banner-2','ezslot_9',621,'0','0']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-animecollective_com-large-mobile-banner-2-0');AmazonPros 041b061a72
