A quick visit to my local anime supplier!

A quick visit to my local anime supplier!
13 Jul 2011 12:18:14

I set off today with the one intention to complete my Yotsuba manga collection!

I also planned to buy some figures but because I was going with a friend to a bigger store at a later date I refrained from spending my cash. Yotsuba has to be my favourite manga and I recommended you give it a go. Also something very sad happens to me later!




First up was Hobbyco which has a small anime figure section. Which is nice since seeing the figures in real looks amazing. All I had with me was my iphone camera so quality will be average.
Hobbyco~

Then it was off to Kinokuniya to buy Yotusuba!!!

Total spend was around $150 Aus dollars. Got a good chunk left for my next visit to another anime store!

Lucky you, we have only two Yotsubato volumes in Russian.
Argh, how envy I am!

The publishers of Russian Yotsuba were looking for printing establishment during few last months. T___T
They didn't even released the 3rd volume of Tsugumomo, which is "typing" according to their website since this winter Q___Q
BTW: Tsugumomo is much more cooler than Yotsuba :p

Most of Russian publishers have official pages in social web vkontakte (= Russian facebook X)), and they usually let readers offer any licenses to publish. Maybe English publishers listen to consumers too?

These stores look amazing! The only local stores that Iv'e had that sold anime figures only really had older ones that were overpriced. (Thankfully the local record shops are amazing!)

Also nice loot! I can't remember what Yotsuba volume I've gotten up to.

Those stores look just great *_* Some prices seem pretty high though if you compare them to the original one, but if it's an old figure it'll cost like that too on ebay or somewhere else I guess :3 (I have the same situation in my local stores, but they have far less figures :D)
And so many great mangas too. By the way, how much does a manga volume usually costs? *_*
(From what I've heard about France, England and Germany manga was pretty expensive, so I'm curious anout Australia :3)

Yea I am also visiting an even bigger store after my exams so I'll be sure to take some more pictures! The figures there are more expensive but it is nice to see them up close rather than online.

The average price for a manga would probably have to be AUS $16 each but because the Australian dollar has gone up from 0.6AUS => 1USD to 1.07AUS => 1 USD, buying online is a lot cheaper now. Although after converting currency and postage, I would still be better off buying from stores.
