Just making this for my own reference. Y'know, for when I'm a millionaire with money to waste.

Title Status Volumes JPN Publisher USA Publisher Cost per Volume Total Cost
Bleach Ongoing 31 USA, 46 JPN Shueisha Viz $7.95 $246.25+ (or $166.95)
Hanazakari no Kimitachi e Complete 23 Hakusensha Viz $9.99 229.77
Ouran High School Host Club Ongoing 14 USA, 16 JPN Hakusensha Viz $8.99 $125.86+
Death Note Complete 12+1 Shueisha Viz $7.99 $103.87
Rurouni Kenshin Complete 28 Shueisha Viz $7.95 $222.60
Ranma ½ Complete 36 Shougakukan Viz $9.95 $358.20
Kodocha Complete 10 Shueisha Tokyopop-- OOP ;_; $9.99 $99.90
Yotsubato! Complete 9 ASCII Media Works ADV (1-5) / Yen Press $10.99 $98.91
Azumanga Daioh Complete 4 MediaWorks / Shougakukan ADV / Yen Press $10.99 $43.96
Kaichou wa Maid-sama! Ongoing 6 USA, 8 Japan Hakusensha Tokyopop $10.99 $65.40+

Overall total: (well over) $1118.70 (since Bleach, Ouran, & KwMs are still running)
Total if I only get up to the end of Soul Society arc (Bleach): $1039.40
Total if I only get series I have reread 10+ times: $568.42

Conclusion: lmfao, no way. It's not as bad as I thought though. Maybe after I get a job and buy a house and all that. It would be hilarious to go to Kinokuniya as a 40 year old and buy over a thousand dollars worth of shounen/shoujo manga. (which is why this post gets my RL: future plans tag, lmao)

YAY BLEACH. My first fandom... ;_; ♥
xD and this is after eliminating a bunch of shoujo series... It's insanely expensive, but I was expecting it to cost way more. I probably could buy all of them after settling down & getting a job and all. But I really don't think I'll want all that manga as a grown up, haha

:O Wow. And this is why I buy Japanese manga because it is half the price. XD

XD I would do that if I knew enough kanji. I want to buy the Japanese editions of Yotsuba & Azumanga Daioh-- I just haven't looked up the prices yet~

Japanese manga is $4-5. ^^ And it's actually part of the reason I learned Japanese, so I could spend less money on manga. XD
