I like having hard copies of series I l really really ike, so I'm buying the Bleach manga (though I already read it online) and the Gurren Lagann dvds as they come out over here. Other than that I usually read online, borrow from friends' collections, or rent it from Netflix

Manga? I like, I buy. I tend to look into the series first if I'm interested, or liked the anime.

Anime? If it's not USA-released yet, then I Youtube it if possible, as much as possible. If I like that and it's due for USA consumption I then buy it. (Exception here being Otoboku. I truly hate how Media Blasters has handled it thus far.)

I used to go read manga once a semester (right after finals to kind of relax) at borders.  However, due to the large number of kids who do this, they now moved the manga section to a tidier part of the store where in full exposure to the other customers.  Needless to say, I don't do it anymore.  But I would if I could.  Bleach manga is great.

I buy a decent amount of manga each month that my sister and I share. (Although it's dwindled a bit.) I RARELY buy Tokyopop's stuff any more though. Got fed up of their weird release schedules.

As for anime: I torrent unlicensed stuff, and buy DVDs of things I like that are licensed, or I know I'll enjoy.

And no offense Shinjiboy, but Border's isn't a library, it's a bookstore. That's one of my major petpeeves since I'm a bibliophile. I hate when the manga or paperbacks or hardbacks are in read condition, yet Border's still has to sell it as new. I've gone months without buying a certain series because they won't order new stock until that one volume that's been read multiple times has been sold. Just my two cents. Not trying to pick on you.

I don't usually buy the manga. But I do buy mechandise if that helps the company.

I haven't been buying animu DVDs for a while now. Maybe cause I'm tight on money. That or I'm my money for other things...

I mostly buy manga since I want to support the industry here and the artist. If there
is any anime I want to get, just wait for it as a thin-pack unless they have some
awesome extras like the Mushishi, Beck and the eng/jp release of Gurren Laggan.
