The race against time in importing japanese manga

If I go to a Japanese bookstore and the book is actually physically there, then it costs less than asking the bookstore to import it from Japan.

This isn’t unexpected or surprising, but it makes me think that with any given manga series I’m going to have to keep an eye out on Japanese releases so I can buy the volumes without any extra shipping fees.

A tricky thing, this timing.
