Those of you that know the bookstore BOOK OFF in Japan, BOOK AWAY is my version. I did this comic and the four before this one, while visiting Japan this summer. I actually went to many used bookstores and bought quite a few manga (that I can't really read). For me, BOOK OFF had the worst selection of new manga but a lot of old or classic collections. My local used book store had the best selection of almost new editions of manga. I loved going there because since they're used, the wrapping is off and you can skim through them. I liked going to the manga shop to spot the comics I want, then go to the used store and buy them.
