I'm about to go off to college and I own a TON of manga. I would love to take it all with me to my dorm room but I don't know if my current bookshelves will be able to fit.

Could someone please give me some advice on how to store a ton of manga in a small space while still keeping them on display? The cheapest way would be appreciated as well.

Some suggestions in order from most logical to most "going out of your way to do that".

1. Leave them at home.
2. Put them in a box.
3. Put them in a TRANSPARANT box.
4. Use a bookshelf or rack-type thing and put it on top of something with a flat top like a dresser.

i personally donated my entire manga collection to my school library and now alot of people are getting into manga. i still have my "raw" editions and 30gbs of manga on my passport so i'm good.

could do that as an option. i personally once again, just did not need that many books with me anymore.

Like kewl0210 said, I would just go with some cheap shelves to put them on if you're wanting to keep them all.

I wouldn't recommend taking all of your manga with you. Space is precious in a dorm room, especially when you're sharing with someone else.

My advice would be to select a small amount of your manga that you really think you're going to want to have with you.

My apologies if I should have posted this elsewhere, it seemed to be otaku in nature since it has to do with organizing one's collection and an otaku would likely have a sizable collection. What a dry explanation :)

I was curious to know if anyone has found a combination of software or technique to organize and catalog their scanlation collections? I know there are some online options and there's always the tried and true method of typing up a list. I guess I keep hoping someone will have found a utility like manga viewer, though for cataloging.

Thank you for your thoughts.
