I've seen mma magazines in book stores. Things like "Real Fight." They seem to come out every once in a while and are usually 960 yen- something like 9-10 bucks. What kind of back issues do you mean?

Okay, he really couldn't give me a exact answer. newer stuff goes for $7 to $15. Stuff that's older cost more. I hope that helps. I will check if he sells his stuff. Lance

The regular monthly magazines like 'Gong' are usually around 500 yen (I guess thats about 5 US dollars) to buy new hot off the press. They usually go in the places that sell back issues of stuff (usually just in big crates of old magazines, divided in sport/fashion/music etc) for between 100-300 yen (Again, guessing thats about 1-3 US dollars). Then there are coffee table type/ glossy photo books/ programme type things (such as 'Real Fight' that was mentioned) which are either one off's or released once every blue moon. Those are usually around the 1000 Yen mark (about 10 bucks?).
