U.S Manga Price Gap

When I was driving through Calgary I saw a sign that said ‘All comics and manga for U.S cover price’ I was astonished. I looked at the manga I had with me (Negima volume 10 and Girls Bravo volume 6) and both of those were like… ten dollars! The Canadian price were like twelve and fourteen dollars! Wow! I thought, ‘what a deal!’ but as it was a family trip I didn’t stop to browse (even though I was offered to do so) and then when I went shopping I came to another store that said ‘all manga for u.s marked price, no more price gap!’ this was after I had bought both Shakugan no Shana and Princess Resurrection volume three. So, is this it? Will it now be the U.S sale price? Even in Winnipeg? I will have to look around and investigate this sooner. I know the Canadian dollar and the U.S dollar have been matched for awhile so will books and manga just be prices as one? I hope so. I really do. Even normal books and not light novels or manga I couldn’t buy because theres like a three to six dollar difference! Hahaha, although I never did buy manga when I went down to the U.S (I bought games. 360 games are omega cheap in the States). But I can’t imagine Tokyopop who are money grubbing whores ever charging everyone the same. They’ll just make one price, sure. But everyone will pay the Canadian price now! Hahahaha.

This is the website of the awesome comic store with the biggest selection of manga in Calgary. If you’re ever on the trans-Canada highway going through Calgary, check it out!
