As some of you might know, I don't read HxH scanlations because their quality is terrible. I only read the official English volumes released by Viz.
However, there's a problem... there are rare volumes that I can't find anywhere. And if they exists, they usually tend to be used or in a ridiculously high price. Not oven Viz's store have them in their retailer prices.
I own volumes 1-7. At one point I couldn't find volume 5 and I had to order it online. But, these volumes are still unobtainable:
- - 08
- - 09
- - 14
- - 18
Of all the hard ones to find, it just had to be Yorknew arc!
I tried http://store.viz.com/ , http://www.justmanga.com , http://www.amazon.com/ and http://www.ebay.com/. Any idea of other places to look at?
^You own 'em, good for you, no need to boast about it, geez. *insert eyeroll here*
I kinda wonder, though, why only first 2 volumes of Yorkshin out of 6 are like that, especially considering they're, like, the least interesting part of Yorkshin.
I ran into somewhat of the same problem when I was trying to get all of the English volumes. I got lucky on a couple because someone had put them up on ebay for a LOT cheaper than amazon/half. I know I have a couple of duplicates because I wasn't smart enough (at the time) to make a list of which I already had.
The duplicates I have are in storage, I think. So the next time I go there I will check to see which ones I have extras of.
Perhaps you could send an e-mail to Viz requesting them to print more copies? Although I doubt they'll actually do something it never hurts to try.
Since you are not deep into the collection (for Berserk I was 15+ volumes in when I saw a deal like this), try this:
I'll leave the price checking to you, but it might be cheaper to do this. Plus you can always make an offer for it. I think $6 a volume is pretty damn good...
I just remembered how I acquired most of my collection, an anime store near where I used to live was having a Buy One Get One free sale and happened to have most of HxH (I think I ended up getting 20+ volumes from that).
This was a real pain when I started collecting Hunter x Hunter. I had to pay a hefty price for volumes 8,9, and 14. I noticed a few times on amazon.com that the out print volumes can sometimes go down to around $20.00 so try check amazon.com as often as you can, or try ebay.
I think I'll need a middle man from the US for this! Can someone help me with this? I'll pay back, don't worry!

Yes! I was able to find someone to help me with this and got the volumes for me. I had to pay for extra services, but at least I'll get my hand on 17 volumes including the rare Yorknew volumes.
And that means I'll end up with extra 1-7 volumes. I hope they'll sell.

like you're selling them. But since you like the series I'm not sure why you would sell them unless you really needed the money.
Nah I'm not selling, I'm just stating the condition they are all in, this series is too awesome to sell
