Does anyone have any advice for finding out-of-print manga?

SallysFunnyKiss Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Since I'm learning Japanese, I've decided to read children's manga to help the language stick.

I'm looking for this: [link]

It's out of print and I can't seem to find the books anywhere. I know that scans exist, but I'd really like to own the physical books so that I can read them anywhere and without having to pull them up on a computer.

I've checked Amazon, Ebay, and the former publishers themselves- Coro Coro Comics. Does anyone know where else I should look, or if there is some sort of out of print manga black market?

Thanks a million.

I doubt you're going to be able to find it outside of a collectors market, and that will be really expensive. You can always just print the scans (of course that's copyright infringement)

I've looked everywhere, and can only find a Japanese book retailer's site that says they can't sell them. No collectors are selling them either. I've found the scans, so I guess that'll have to do. Thank you.
