Update: Since only a handful of people have participated in this manga contest, I’ll be extending the entering deadline until June 6th. Get your entries in guys!
Here’s the deal: Every once in awhile, you buy a manga you already own. Sometimes you can return it to the store you bought it from, sometimes you can’t. I have about seven volumes of manga that I can’t return for various reasons. They are…
SkyBlue Shore vol. 2 by Nanpei Yamada (Hey! I worked on that one!)
Two Flowers for the Dragon vol. 5 by Nari Kusakawa
Bizenghast vol. 5 by M. Alice LeGrow
Red Hot Chili Samurai vol. 2 by Yoshitsugu Katagiri
Gakuen Alice vol. 13 by Tachibana Higuchi
Neko Ramen: Curry is also delicious! (vol. 2) by Kenji Sonishi
V.B. Rose vol. 7 by Banri Hidaka
All of these titles are from publishers that no longer exist, which renders them out of print. Which is why this is a contest and not a giveaway. None of these manga are first volumes, but they need good homes, so you should enter if you want to fill the gaps you might have in your personal collections.
To enter, you will have to list the manga you want and why you love that series so much in the comments section below. You can only enter to win two manga. If you try to win more, all your entries will be disqualified. (And I can see your e-mail & IP addresses when you comment, so don’t try to trick me.) Each entry will be counted separately, so if one entry wins that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll win both volumes the volumes you entered for. Good luck and be convincing!
Winners will be decided on Monday, June 6th and have their manga mailed to them after June 6th or whenever I get their addresses.
Disclaimer: The majority of these manga do have marks on the barcodes, covers and elsewhere because they were purchased at a closing Borders store or at the Tokyopop garage sale.
