Did You Know?

You may have noticed more omnibuses within our manga collection lately.  They are the oversized manga that contain several volumes in one book.  They can be referred to as "Three in one" or a VIZBIG edition.  Many publishers release older series in an omnibus format; sometimes they have new artwork or translations and bonus content.

We may choose to replace some manga volumes within a series with omnibus versions. They are usually cheaper and take up less space on the shelf compared to the same volumes in standard format.

To quickly see which volumes are included in an omnibus, check the spine of the book.
