@Fadamor, the shrinking space for manga and anime at bookstores and Best Buys isn't so much an indication that manga is "dying a slow death" abroad, but rather a consequence of the huge popularity among fans of the myriad of scanslation and fansubbing websites out there. Why wait for monthly releases of a series at a bookstore and then have to pay for it when you can get it all for free and updated daily or weekly online? The anime and manga fandom at large and around the world has gravitated towards reading online scanslations and it is a huge problem for the industry as it needs to find ways now to get fans to actually pay for and support all of the series and their creators.
