    Default Akira

    So I decided I really wanted to read the Akira series but I have discovered somthing... Its kinda alot of money.

    Why are the Akira books so expensive? I know they are pretty long, and an old series I guess... but still... its like $150 for the 6 books. It really seems like its just book 3 and 6 though that are specifically costly though. Anyone know why that is?

    Speaking of Akira... how come the manga isn't on the site? D:

    In general the series is expensive because the page is a bigger size, there are more pages per book, the paper is better quality and it's bound better. I suppose 3 and 6 cost more because maybe they have even more pages than the others.

    And maybe because they're in colour? Half-assed to boot. The original was in black and white wasn't it? Been trying to find scanlations of it in b&w, but no success as of yet. I just get so put of by the poorly chosen colours and flat feel it gives the manga.

    You can always just read it online/download it, either way I think it is worth the money, the Manga is excellent.
