Cheap, Used Books at Japanese Store Book Off

For Manga Fanatics on a Budget Go to Book OFf

I used to be an avid manga reader and I would always buy my manga at bookoff. Buying a manga brand new will cost you about 400 yen while one at bookoff will only be 105yen. The books are usually in good condition and buying second hand is more ecological. Bookoff has other things you can buy. The bigger stores will have English books, DVDs, and TV and hand held games. When you want things second hand in Japan, Bookoff is the place to go!
