    The best way to buy Claymore manga

    I've recently discovered the easiest and cheapest way to buy Claymore, i.e. by using Amazon and buying the electronic version of the manga. That way you can buy each volume for 400 yen which is about 3.40$. It's cheaper than the cheapest English digital version (which usually cost 5 $) AND it's way more profitable for Yagi. The only downside is that it's in Japanese and you have to buy kindle (although it's probably possible to read the digital version on your computer) and you need a credit card. On the other hand official English translation sucks (see here) and Japanese version has these superb undercovers.


    If you have other suggestions or want to sell Claymore you can also post in here.

    How exactly does purchasing the Japanese electronic version of the story put more money in Yagi's than any other model? Not doubting, just curious about how that works given all the kerfuffle I've seen about online sales and royalties lately.

    For one thing you're circumventing the fees for Viz. Also, there is something called Oricon rating which is important to Japanese companies. The better the manga does there the more chance of it receiving anime (or not being cancelled). And only sales in Japan are counted, the rest is almost insignificant. BTW, Claymore in the first week has sold in over 100k copies which is a good number.

    I like owning the physical copies of the book. I just buy them from Amazon, Ebay, or Rightstuf.com. I also would rather have the English versions so that I could actually read them.
