I'm currently building a physical backlog of doujins that I've read over the years online. Because the majority of what I've read was sold from around C65-C85, most online retailers no longer carry them in stock. If a specific doujin isn't on the store pages of Suruga-ya, Toranoana, Mandarake, or Yahoo Auctions is it effectively lost to time? Are there other stores in Akihabara (or the rest of Japan) that still stock older doujins?

From what I saw while I was there, there are TONS of stores that sell doujins, many of which aren't big name chains. This means they wont likely ship over seas, let alone list these things online, but you could at least use a service to find books for you if you want them enough. Also, I believe the guys that run comiket have a museum of sorts with a copy of very doujin ever sold at comiket. That said, you'd probably have better luck searching Den Den than Akihabara if you're looking for old works. Akihabara has been slowly moving away from being a (true)otaku paradise and leaning more towards tourist attraction.

If this appears from time to time (at ridiculously high prices) you can probably find anything, you just need to be patient and wait until appears.

If you don't mind me asking, by service do you mean proxy shopping or something else? I've used proxies before to order doujins that were still available online, but I wasn't aware of any that would search stores in person.

I'll see if that holds true for what I'm looking for.

I know Fromjapan will search online for you, but I don't know about offline. I'm sure there are guys out there who will do that but I wouldn't know who.
