A computer

A kindle would probably be pretty good since it's black and white but I doubt there's a manga app so you'd have to import all your manga somehow.
I have a 2012 Nexus which works fine for reading manga. I use mango but I'm sure there's a better app out there.

calibe can convert everything to the kindle format no problems

A lamp. So you can read the book.
desktop computer is acceptable


I don't use anything other than the above because I am not retarded enough to even consider anything else.

>>117713355
if only we all had that luxury
>>
>>117713355
If I've got money to spare and the manga was really good, then I'd buy it. I wouldn't buy every single manga I've read, even if it was localized. I'd probably never read it again.
But that aside
physical > ebook/tablet > computer

>>117713450
It doesn't seem to be possible to have buying ebooks not be a case of more than money than sense and taste.

I read all my manga (that I don't own physical copies of) on my iPad Mini. It's worlds better than any e-ink device I've had in the past, including a Nook and a Kindle.

You realize there are plenty of manga that aren't scanned, or the scans are of inferior quality to what you can buy, right?

any recommended android apps for reading manga that is in .rar/.zip form

>>117713631
I never said ">buying manga", just which is better.

Also, you are making an argument for having sense when you buy but then you write:
>buy light novels.
Really? And you're lumping them in with real books?
>>
>>117713753
Perfect Viewer

>>117713763
But that's the case with translated manga as well. There are several series where the available scans just don't live it up to the quality of localized releases, or there might not being any scans at all.

Does anybody have experience with the PocketBook InkPad?
A 8" display with 1600x1200 sounds pretty great for manga.

A 10 inch E-ink tablet.
>>
>>117713316
You can convert chapter into Kindle format. I tried it before. But its rather awkward and slow to convert too many chapters so I rarely bother with it.

I read 4komas in my cellphone. The screen fits nicely for the 2x4 panels per page format.
>>
>>117714298
The only problem with e-ink is when they do color pages.

what you want for manga is - high res/large screen, backlight, expandable memory, native support for easy packaging of your manga.

aura hd has all that, I tried a few and it's the best by far.
>>
>>117714298
>8 inch
I has an ASUS HD8 and the thing is a choir to hold on one hand, sure, the size is great but it tires you out fast, and if you use something that use all the screen for touch controls like Perfect Viewer, that gonna be ankward. I say 7 inch is good compromise, 6 if you can find screen dimension size goes well with manga pages size (read: anything not 4:3 like my Nook Touch)
>>
>>117716389
So the best option would be a 7" e-ink reader with 1600x1200?
>>
>>117715165
>6.8 inch display
>240g
>kick-ass looking
That seems pretty good, why does the e-ink looks bluish though ? Poor camera ?
>>
Does anyone has any information about colour e-ink? It seems to be a viable technology with a few prototypes but I don't see any product yet. When will there be kindle with colours?
>>
>>117714298
what happens when there is a color page?
>>
>>117716720
You lose.
>>
>>117716715
eh, there has been few production models, but LED display killed them all, what with being cheaper, more vibrant display. Price is what matter most, since those screens cost an arm and a leg even back then.
>>117716628
Most importantly, its need to be lightweight too. You will hold it in one hand most of the time, so anything 300g and above is not recommended, unless you confident in your left arm. Has built-in backlight is nice feature too, but not deal breaker since there plenty of 3rd LED lights made for night reading to go with.
>>117716720
You got a nice shading monotone picture

>>117716963

>cost an arm and a leg

I would cut off my arm and leg just for a decent colour e-ink display. It doesn't matter if it cost a lot more than iPad. I just want a device which can read in colour without huurting my eyes, and I don't need to charge every 6 hours.

There is none. Mangas are for children
