^Agreed

sure i get 200+ dollers on my Bday, christmas and 50 after every report card... but i would really just spend money on things that are useful after being done, like games, updating your computer, and TV...

for example you read a manga you get tired of it..

you know what i think would be cool? like, you know how RK comes out monthly? what if, assuming Viz knew how many volumes were in RK, that you could subscribe to a manga? you get each new volume each month!

here at first it came out in normal comic books like they are created in japan. as you know manga is published chapter in japan and around the ninetys it became easier to wait a few months and just have the whole version in a graphic novel

there is always a discussion about them bringing that kinda format back but it usually end at just that. also i paid 5 extra dollars for excel saga 14online it was a gift card for barnes and nobles and it probably would not have been stocked in the shelves for a good two weeks.

anyone who cant name at least one manga that they think isnt worth spending few extra dollars on to get earlier than they would otherwise probably has not been exposed to a lot of good manga, or just the opposite maybe they've been exposed to too much good manga and now they are spoiled
