Because reading it from a book >>>> reading on the comp.
I only paid 5 bucks for my copies, which were brand spanking new. But this was before my small secondhand bookstore started selling manga at 25% of the actual price. Only a fucking fool buy mango at the actual price. Learn to bargain.
Meh, I'm selling off my Negima volumes to a secondhand Japanese bookstore that sells English translated manga as well. I got really bored at the school festival and the following arcs don't seem as interesting to me to continue on reading the series, much less buying the series even at $2.75 a volume.
I'm planning to get the next Kuroshitsuji in moon and the next volume of the next volume of After School Nightmare as well. But I kinda fucked myself since I had special ordered some books that will come up to $80. Fuck.
