My Manga Collection

Well since this is a blog mainly about anime and manga I decided to start off with showing you my manga collection. These are only the volumes that are not in Bulgarian. I will have a special post for manga, published in my country and I'm saving the material :P
I used to buy all the manga I see before my eyes, but since money doesn't grow on trees I decided to buy only things that I really like. So here they are :)
  • Blade of the Immortal / 無限の住人 by Samura Hiroaki - vol 1 and vol 5. Both volumes are in English. I simply love the artwork of this one.
  •  Card Captor Sakura / カードキャプターさくら by Clamp - vol 4, English
  • Clover by Clamp - complete, English. Actually this is a special edition that contains all the 4 volumes of the manga plus a really beautiful art book.
  •  Death Note / デスノート by Obata Takeshi (art) and Ohba Tsugumi (story) - vol 12, English. I am not a really big fan of Death Note, actually, but I love Obata's artwork and this volume in particular has some amazing scenes.
  •  Fullmetal Alchemist / 鋼の錬金術師 by Arakawa Hiromu - vol 13 (English) and vol 20 (Japanese)
  • The art of Fullmetal Alchemist - vol 2 (art book) I really treasure this one, because it's a present from a friend.
  •  Hellsing / ヘルシング by Hirano Kouta - vol 3, English
  •  Inuyasha / 犬夜叉 by Takahashi Rumiko - vol 1 and vol 6 (anime-manga). Both volumes are in English. The anime-manga was a present for my birthday.
  •  Model by So Young Lee - vol 1, vol 2, vol 3, vol 4. Volumes are in Russian. I hope they deliver the last 3 volumes here soon.
  •  Ruroni Kenshin / るろうに剣心 by Watsuki Nobuhiro - vol 1 and vol 2 are in English, vol 3, vol 4 and vol 5 are in Japanese. This is my most favourite manga.Volume 1 and 2 were presents for my birthday and I am really sad to say that they are falling apart T_T
  • Voyage to the Moon World by Shizuka Kaoru- this is the Kenshin light novel. I had a lot of trouble getting this one XD 
  •  Genju no Seiza / 幻獣の星座 by Akino Matsuri - vol 1, Russian. Present for my birthday.
  •  Shaman King / シャーマンキング by Takei Hiroyuki - vol 5, English. The reason I bought this volume exactly is because it shows how different the anime and the manga are and that the manga is much more superior.

  •  Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle by Clamp - vol 1, vol 9, vol 10, vol 23. Volumes are in English
  •  Vampire Hunter D by Kikuchi Hideyuki (story) and Amano Yoshitaka (art) - vol 1, vol 2. Volumes are in English.

  • The Mammoth Book of Best New Manga -  vol 2 and vol 3. Most of the stories in these two are stupid and the artwork is kind of crappy, but among these there are some really nice manga stories and that's why I still keep these.

That's about it for now. Feel free to ask any questions :)


  1. Is there any manga series you would consider adding to your collection, but you haven't gotten a chance?

    1. Yes, actually there are a lot. Angel Sanctuary, Bakuman, Kamikaze Kaito Janne and Mars, for example are some of my favourites, but there are nowhere to be found :D Also, I'd really like to complete series, seen here.
