When I was living in the UK, there were only a few methods of getting hold of the precious resource known as Manga [漫画]. The couple of Japanese book shops in London was one method but they would only stock a limited quantity and have a small selection.
Another method was to ask a friend to bring some over from Japan or actually go to Japan to get some.
When I first stared to live in Japan, I would see the resource that meant so much to me back in the UK just dumped out with the recyclable materials. At first I was surprised but then got used to it after understanding just how much Manga is a part of the lives of Japanese folks.
Where do you currently get your dose of manga from?
