fencer-x:

flutterwithoutwind:

The size of manga chapters came up in a post that fencer-x made, which involved the mentioning of the actual magazines they’re published in. Now, not all of them are the same size, but since I had, at one time, no concept of how large they were, I thought a comparison would be a good idea for those curious people.
In the photo I have setup comparisons of (from L to R):
standard novel (Lamb by Christopher Moore, who is ridiculous and perfect)
long novel that fucking breaks your heart (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows)
manga magazine (Rutile, in which Konya mo Nemurenai is published)
manga magazine (Gush, in which Honto Yajuu is published)
tankoubon (average tank length; what you see in stores that sell whole volumes of a manga series)
novel (average-ish novel length for BL from what I’ve seen)
Pretty crazy, how huge the magazines are, but there are at least a dozen or so series running in them, with approximately 15-20 pages (individual pages, printed on both front and back) per series. I had no idea until some landed on my doorstep. They definitely take up room on the bookshelves. Not sure how those in Japan with small apartments find the room. Vertical space, I guess. XD

For those who were wondering about the size/thickness of the books we buy! Excellent for comparison :D
