Manga vs Mangas

I've been curious lately: Do you guys say manga or mangas?

This is solely an English-language conversation, since I realize the plural of manga in Japanese would not correspond to "mangas" anyway. Since "manga" is a Japanese loan word it's difficult to figure out its grammar. One one hand you could argue that since the Japanes language doesn't work the same way for plurals so no adding -s, you should say "I bought 2 manga." On the other hand you could argue that it doesn't matter. ...I guess it doesn't but I was just wondering what other people tend to say. ^^

"I bought 2 mangas, suck it!"
