Mahjong Manga in America

Does anyone know where I can get ANY of the following in America? My local Kinokuniya has none of these...

Mukoubuchi
Tenpai
Obaka Miiko

Also, if anyone knows how I can subscribe to Kindai Mahjong, that would be the best!

Re:How much do you actually play?

When I was studying in Japan, I\'d play at least twice a week in the dorm, and would go out to play an all-nighter at the parlors about once a month. :P Since I\'ve been home, I\'ve just been playing in small intervals on Tenhou or Fight Club on my ds, but the feeling\'s so different, I rather not p...

Re:Mahjong Manners

I also thought that if you put every tsumo into or on your hand, it helps to show a solid kind of \'poker face\'; just in case you have been waiting for a single tile, you don\'t show that by quickly discarding your draws without a second thought :laugh:

Re:Linguistics of Mahjong

I remember when I started playing mahjong, it was Taiwan style and when I taught my friends, I made cheat sheets for the number suits and the directions (however some friends insisted that an upside-down :east was a \'happy dinosaur\' with arms wide open :S Anyways, they would say pon and chow, and ...

Re:"Saki" Anime Character Mahjong Set...

Speaking of anime sets, I found a Touhou mahjong set in Akihabara which really intrigued me: Image (This isn\'t the exact one, but a Touhou one nonetheless)

The price? $400 USD

Re:How to discard in a "stylish" way?

It\'s been a tradition in my dorm to turn the red dragon around so the bottom faces your opponent, and we call it the Chun Beam, the ultimate weapon, and the white dragon is a shield against that so if you have it, you\'re ok XD

Re:gambling?

Well maybe it\'s only in the local ones near my area, but if you play free in some jansous they give you your membership card and a small bin to keep your bills and change; some jansous I know show money at the end of a winning hand, depending if the winner has any red doras, got an ura dora, an ipp...
