Does /a/ use e-readers for manga and comics?
Nah, because double pages work really badly.
I actually wrote a script to automatically split double pages in two but it's still kind of a pain to read manga on actually quite a small screen. Looks good, just a little small.
4chan was made for vertical monitors.
A horizontal monitor, you get like what 7 or 8 posts all bunched up on the side and then the other 3/4ths of the screen is empty.
In portrait, you can see like 25 posts at a time and there's almost no wasted screen at all.
>not using both
It's obviously situational. Some people will read manga when they're out of the house or away from their desk.
Though I don't use an ereader anymore, tablets are better and more convenient in every way.
Wait, what? But I do think you should have multiple monitors in general, 4chan included. Extra real estate is the best.
You should first learn how to formulate sentences before insulting someone based in their intelligence.
>Both of criticized
Both of you.
>a perfectly fine sentence
What he meant to imply was presumably "you're stupid enough to think that you need multiple monitors to browse 4chan," but he wound up with a sentence that implies that only a dumb person wouldn't browse 4chan with multiple monitors, which is clearly the opposite of what he meant.
>Both of criticized him for "botching" a perfectly fine sentence. What the fuck?
You can't make up this kind of irony.
>bad reading comprehension
You people can actually read, right?
Thanks for explaining, I was honestly too lazy to do so.
I once had the same idea of using an e-ink reader for manga since most were in black-and-white anyway. Turns out it made most pages almost impossible to read due to the text being so tiny. Replaced it with a 10" Windows tablet and it works much better now.
Right, my bad. Obviously, I didn't realize because it was a grammatically correct sentence. I'm not that guy, and I did just speedread it.
Dude the kobo glo has had this for like 5 years
All kobos have expandable memory (their internal memory is actually an SD card).
A kobo aura HD should be perfect for manga.
I've had a kobo glo for 4 or so years and it has all those things.
I can't get it to boot with anything other than the 4gb it comes with
I'm using Nexus 7 for Manga/Anime/LN.
Doing very well considering how old the thing is, still on Kitkat, since I didn't want it to get laggy from the new updates.
What are you talking about?
BAKAEX, Alreader, moon+reader.
tablet, the e reader is too small
This is the extent of my free space 6 months of the year. Would you suggest I just keep physical volumes on hand?
Kindle Comic Converter
Very handy back when I had a Paperwhite, even now that I have a Kobo h2o, I still use it to optimize images for the screen size and fast page turns.
Kobo can handle cbz too so life is easy.
But doesn't scrolling meters and meters of pages with a whole hand become kinda tiring? You need to scroll a lot and fast when reading manga in comparison to text. I tried it like once on my fathers iPad but didn't like it. Much easier to scroll using mouse, the screen is bigger. Also if I read on my laptop on bed I can lie down so I'm facing the screen sideways thus can see whole page which is nice.
Most of my reading these days is done on my Chromebook at workl. The online scans aren't as good as downloading your own, but it's better than nothing.
I've been reading more manga that ever since I got a job. How about that?
If I feel like lazing around in bed, I use my phone. Otherwise, my PC.
Strange thing is, I do have some physical copies of stuff that I really like, but I always end up reading on a screen anyways.
forgot to metion this is a kobo aura hd.
While I like the idea of an E-reader, in reality the whole thing is far too fucking finnicky, the resolutions are too low for comfort, and the only way to get a half-decent experience is to buy everything you want to read off Amazon.
I used to read it on my Kobo years ago.
Nowadays I just use my tablet, IPS screens have come a long way, low brightness setting on my tablet is about as good as the e-ink screens.
>poorfaggot neets angry people can buy god tier tech
In every e-reader thread on /a/ forever.
I use a cheap android tablet. It's 10 inches, so a little big to carry around if I don't have my backpack with me, but it's perfect size for Manga pages Cuz I never have to zoom in and out. Double pages can be a bit annoying but those are pretty rare as is. Plus I just don't have the money/space to collect volumes of books except ones I really love.
>Some people will read manga when they're out of the house or away from their desk.
I see this is a sentence with words that mean something but I do not comprehend the message that was conveyed, what does 'out of the house' and 'away from their desk' even mean?
I recently bought a 4th gen Kindle for $20 on Amazon and now use that exclusively for light novels and real books. At first when I put manga on it, the text was really tiny and couldn't read it so I downloaded a thing called Kindle Comics Converter and used the feature that cuts out the margins and can read manga perfectly. I still use my Galaxy Tab A for manga mainly for weekly updated stuff but if I find a completed series I wouldn't mind reading it on a Kindle. Downside is no expandable memory
Which is unfortunate, because I'm a faggot about collecting physical copies of media that I like.
I checked out the Punpun omnibus and it doesn't seem too bad if you're into that sort of manga.
It is disappointing.
First two are rare good ones, third is more common.
Anybody having issues with Kobo stuff?
My h2o is not appearing properly when I connect it to my PC. It just appears as an empty drive in Computer and it appears in Disk Managment but all the space on it appears as "Unallocated" eventhough the device is working fine and I'm able to read content stored on the internal memory.
I've had to resort putting stuff on a microSD card to load new books on it since I can't access the internal storage. When I connect it with the microSD card inserted I can access just fine, but no dice with the internal.
