The local manga cafe is closing (sad!) and I had been wondering what they would do with all of their manga. Well, the answer is... they're selling it all! For extremely cheap... $1 per volume to be exact. All of the manga are in good condition, some of the spines have some color faded from it, but it's not horrible. The pages are all crisp and have that "manga smell" (mmm good lord this sounds very otaku) and even come with the plastic jackets (good for my anal personality?).
I bought the complete series of Rurouni Kenshin and Angel Sanctuary, which as anyone who knows me... rank up there as some of my favorite manga of ALL TIME. Score? I think so... My bf was thinking about getting Initial D and at $1 per volume we just caved and bought it anyway.
Other good shoujo series I saw for sale that I really wanted to get was Basara and Red River (aka Anatolia Story). I didn't get Red River because they didn't have the complete set (a few volumes were missing), but I'm still thinking about it even as I type this. >_<
There was a jpop event going on in Japantown and I'll make a separate post about that since it involves fashion and the new building that houses gothic lolita clothing. :)
