Hunter X Hunter is Very Popular Among Used Books Too!

Last year, the online store Book Off Online opened in Japan. This isn’t your ordinary bookstore, it specializes in used books, CDs, DVDs, comics, magazines, and games. For a greatly reduced price, users can buy and sell their used goods, and the store has been doing quite well since it first came online. A few days ago, they released their top ten most popular Manga sellers, and it turns out that Yoshihiro Togashi’s Hunter X Hunter scored in 8th place, ahead of Naruto and Junjo Romantica. Hunter X Hunter sells at this site for ¥300 a volume (Around $2.80 USD/CAD) as opposed to on Amazon, where a volume would cost ¥410 (just a little over a dollar more). Now if only Manga could be this cheap in the rest of the world!
