Manga Rental

These signs line the sidewalk near a video rental shop. They are taken down at night. (The pole fits down into that concrete block.) The sign says "comic rental" in English and in katakana, the script for foreign words.

The shop also sells video games, and a few Some manga stories have weekly installments. That means the story can stretch over many books and many weeks. Each book can cost around 400 yen, more or less. Some people prefer to rent them in order to keep up with the story.

The Naruto manga that I posted yesterday was all one complete story. It was more expensive. Big Sister can't remember how much it was and there were none left. I'll post the price later.
