Manga Scalpers have really become a major problem lately

Recommended Posts

some idiots charging over a hundred dollars for five volumes of chainsaw man or a couple Jujutsu Kaisen Volumes

or the first three spy family volumes...

it's insane....more so because I Realize there are people paying those outlandish prices

Pretty sure it’s people trying their damndest to place some kind of value on a used manga. They go into a store or warehouse at a $10-$20 value, but once it’s purchased, you couldn’t pay someone to buy them at a rate higher than a dollar each.

I ended up giving away stacks of Bleach and Black Butler to thrift stores because they were worthless by the time I wanted to sell them online.

I Mean maybe that would be the case if stuff like Chainsaw Man didn't seem to be out of stock across the board

if these people could simply buy a couple volumes from amazon or rightstuf at retail price they would

however that's not an option currently

Another argument for digital distribution.

stuff on digital store fronts can easily be revoked at anytime for whatever reason

We've seen with video games the problem when it comes to digital only titles...
 

besides a lot of us spend so much time staring at screens everyday.....we don't need to get a headache over reading manga

*Cries in missing volumes 8 and 9 of Eden: It's an Endless World....and everything after volume 14 which will probably never be released in the US. :|

I haven't checked on manga in forever but surprising. Video games, anime, figures, all that shit gets scalped.
