I usually get sets of used stuff on Amazon Japan. It's kind of a pain to find a used seller that'll actually ship to the US, but once you find one they're insanely cheap; I got a full 9-volume set of Nora for about 400 yen plus shipping. Shipping is 3000 yen flat fee plus 400 yen per book, but a set of books is technically one item so that helps a lot. As for finding out which ones will ship to the US, just add a bunch of them to your cart, then go to checkout and see which ones don't whine at you about shipping.Question for you guys and gals...where would one purchase older manga? Stuff that came out back in 2000-2005 ish? I'm looking to finish up my collections of Nakayama and Fukuchi works but am finding older series by the two are hard to get...specifically Ueki no Hosoku plus by Fukuchi, and Astral Engine by Nakayama. I'm sure I won't get shiny new copies of these manga which is fine, but is there anywhere that would ship used copies to the US?
There's a set of Ueki Plus volumes here that'll ship to the US, it's the second one on the list. Anything that says Fulfilled by Amazon is usually more likely to have international shipping, in my experience.
There's also a chain of Book-off stores in the US that have tons of used manga. I go to the one in NYC (it's right around the corner from Kinokuniya, actually) and raid the $1 volume section. They actually did have Ueki Plus v1 there for $1 last time I went, although who knows if it's still there. I did pick up Ueki 1-2, but they're just sitting on my shelf unread at the moment.
