So which e-reader is best for reading downloaded manga? Or better yet, which one is popular among anons?

My bookshelves are overloaded with stuff and I'm tired of reading it on my desktop despite having a 27" rotatable monitor.

More so, spending a reasonable amount on these devices seems like a logical choice compared to continuously buying hard copies.

I would go with a tablet unless you figured out the magic to perfectly cropping manga scans to get all and only the white parts out.
>>
>>100862569
Android is hands down superior to iOS for manga. I just use an old Asus transformer prime.

I think a good 10" is best and I wouldn't want anything smaller. Manga looks great at that size.

Just use perfectviewer and download from scanlators/mangatraders and that is all you need.

For watching animu, though, my ipad air is better than any android tablet I've found. Plays 10bit 1080p BD flawlessly.

No. It just makes it so I can get really comfy on my bed and watch a few episodes of something before bed. It has helped me hammer out a lot of backlog.

If you're sitting in your own house why not use a TV, you goof. I can think of zero benefits of using a ten inch tablet when you can get a nice 1080p monitor for half the price.

I can't speak to the new android tablets but my Asus just never had the power. Dropped frames and mangled subs and shit.

No app ever made a difference.

From what I've heard the new devices still aren't perfect, which is why I went with the air. First apple device I've ever owned and I HATE EVERYTHING about it aside from watching animu on it. It is even terrible for trying to read manga on thanks to no proper archive access to the user aside from fucking itunes. It takes twice as long to load manga to the ipad because you can't just download directly to your device. Also the reading apps all blow ass compared to perfectviewer.

>manga apps
Disgusting. Most pull from fucking mangafox and shit. Enjoy your shitty quality, watermarks, and censorship.

Download from scanlators and open in perfectviewer. Only way to read manga properly on a tablet.

>>100863092
Because it's not as comfy? I can just lay back on my pillow, prop my tablet up on its stand, and watch animu laying down. I don't do it for everything, but it's nice for latenite viewing when I don't feel like sitting at my battlestation.

And it also was great for in the deer blind this last season and having something to do while waiting for durr to arrive.

>>100863150
Perfectviewer is pretty much the defacto manga app for android. IIRC even their Google Play page has manga in the library pictures.
>>
>>100863490
iPad has 4:3 aspect ratio which, along with its good screen, makes it physically the best for reading manga.
>>
I use a 2012 nexus 7 works great for manga if the brightness is a problem for eyestrain you can use flux like apps to change the brightness and colour of the screen to something warmer. You can also use es explorer and stream anime directly from your pc harddrive it handles anything 720p with ease. I hated tablets before thought they were just crippled laptops but now I use it more than my desktop and in greater comfort.
>>

>>
GUYS I FIGURED OUT WHY WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TABLETS!

>>
>>100863598
Yeah cool.

But first it would have to stop sucking absolute dicks for actually reading.

Nothing comes close to the ease and function of just downloading from scanlators/mangatraders right to the device and bam, it's right in your perfectviewer library and ready to read.

Fuck having to transfer shit over from your PC via the awful clusterfuck that is itunes. Might be fine for reading shit that has already finished but it's absolute ass for following any ongoing shit. I don't want to be bothered plugging my fucking tablet in every day or so just to transfer over manga. I can download and read on my android without even getting off the toilet/couch/bed/etc.

>>100863666
You want convenience? Mangatraders + Perfectviewer. Seriously.
>click download link

>>100863700

For iOS I recommend Comicglass, for Android SCViewer.

Why would I bother?

It's still inferior to just using PV and downloading from the actual source. It takes me ~2 seconds to download a manga chapter of the shit I'm following and there are no load times/etc.

Also batoto doesn't carry a lot of shit I read out of their "non-lewd (unless it gets us a ton of traffic)" policy

>>100863969
Holy shit, no.

Perfectviewer + scanlator sites/mangatraders is the perfect system and doesn't require you to even plug your device into a computer.

I bought an iPad Mini II yesterday, and I really like the app Manga Storm for batch-downloading series and reading offline.
It can download off of Batoto, so no scaling or watermarks.
But I'm still in need of a way to read my loli-manga.
Anybody know an iOS app that allows reading .zip files or such?
>>
>>100863752
Is SCviewer good? I use acv because it can open zip/rar files but the interface could be better zooming is awkward.

And multiple tabs/tasks are nothing for new devices. I can browse /a/ in between manga chapters even on my old as fuck asus without issue.

>>100864153
>and put rars/zips on your tablet
You can skip that step and just download them directly to the PV library folder.

>>100864071
why not both?
Im using mangawatcher for new chapter, PV for collection.
>>
>>100864218
The only issue I've ran into is it freaking out on a few zip/rar files and not opening them. Error said file wasn't found so I don't know if that's SCviewer or the file its self. Besides that it's fantastic and have a great UI.
>>
>>100864247
Why the split?

I'll admit I use mangatraders to keep track of many of the series I'm currently following just for the ease of it. But I'm also following a few hundred mangos.

So much easier just to download them and be done with it.

Tablets are only slightly bigger than a physical copy and thus closer to the correct size for the medium.

>>100864526

Can anyone recommend the nexus 7 2nd gen? Ebay has a 32gb for $235 and I'm thinking about getting it

Probably a bit controversial but I think a LCD screen is better than e-ink for manga alone. (Though e-ink is by far better for reading text.) I'd recommend the Nook HD+ for a cheap tablet with near ideal screen size and resolution for manga. You can probably get a refurbished one around $120. Install custom firmware and it's a great 9" tablet for the price.
>>
>>100865115
Yes. Go for it.
>>
>>100862569
I have the Nexus 7, put all my manga on Dropbox and read it from there. It's not really optimal, since I have to have an internet connection, but it's not a problem for me. Anime looks great on it with MX player, if you can deal with some banding issues in scenes with certain lighting.

Reading manga on a device in your hand also feels far more natural than having a scanned page on a swole as fuck stationary PC with a 27" screen, which is a large part of why I got the Nexus.
>>
>>100865057

>Are you somebody that walks into an IMAX theater and says its too big? Because that's dumb as fuck.
IMAX movies have been tailored to those screens. Manga is intended to be read in a format smaller than a 10" tablet screen, even.

There is such a thing as having too large of something. It isn't as though manga somehow looks better on a PC screen. Just bigger which can actually end up making it look worse.

>No, but I generally stay in one place, which is behind my PC.
How dull.

No. Once you download them you can read them offline. It would actually take less time than downloading them from your dropbox, most likely, once you factor in the time it took to download and place them into that folder.

Give it a try, it is much more streamlined.

iPad Mini Retina - Manga Rock
Nexus 7 2013 (won in Kit Kat contest) - Perfect Viewer/Manga Rock
Kobo Aura - usually use it to read a completed series or large volumes.

For me, it's easiest to just read from the Nexus 7 using Perfect Viewer. Not so much so on my iPad as it doesn't look right (what reader app do people use?) for me. Easier to just load up Manga Rock (or whatever Manga app) for that.

For the Aura, it's kind of a pain in the ass to download manga, convert to CBZ, and then plugging it in to transfer (unless someone knows how I can do this wirelessly...tell me), and then wait until my Aura finishes processing the new content. But in terms of readability, I enjoy my Aura much more as I get no eye strain like my tablets. It's front-lit so readability in darker rooms is fine.

>They're still small as fuck though.
And you're fucking retarded for thinking that matters on something where the source material is something as small as a manga page.

>nicotine addicted deer
>making random shit up
Seriously, faggot?

The diet of my local deer and hogs is acorns, sage, clover, and a few random grasses and whatnot. It is the freshest and most natural meat you can even procure.

>>100867375
>how I can do this wirelessly.
You can use Airdroid.
>>
>>100867375
OP here.

I'm thinking of getting one of those devices. I'm leaning more towards Nexus due to high reputation with resonable price.
However, mini and aura are also tempting currently...

I would like to receive final verdicts for these devices before I make a purchase.

You should use all of them in the store before deciding.
>>
>>100866975
>No page loading

Thats because you used that time for downloading. And I can download new chapter with the apps and open with PV. plus no loading time for me,except if your internet a shit
>>
>>100867818
I read LN on my nexus all the time and it's great. Bakareader Ex is a lovely thing. Haven't read manga on it yet but I probably will once I catch up on Index.

I will say you should wait around for a sale on the N7, or get an Asus memopad (nearly identical). And for reading LNs/manga I don't think 2012 or 2013 would matter, but if you want anime too you should probably get the 2013.
>>
>>100867818
Aura is a completely different device meant for reading shit. If you have spare cash, why not? But it seems like your budget wouldn't allow for a tablet+Aura. If you have the budget for an iPad Mini (retina - if you really had to get a Mini, don't get the old shit model), buy a Nexus 7 ($199 on sale) and an eReader (Kobo Glo) instead.
>>
>>100867863

yep
>>100867963
;_;

>>100867818
If you only need to read manga on it, and appreciate watching cartoons/browsing web and shit as well then go for the Nexus. Sure it's not e-ink but the eyestrain is lesser than with a PC monitor anyway. Plus you can just download and read with the device alone.
If you also want to read books but most importantly a lot of manga(by that I mean the finished volumes, not new ongoing series) then get Aura HD - it's the best e-ink reader suited for manga(for books only Paperwhite 2nd gen is better but >2GB storage)
I can't say anything about ipad because I've never owned an Apple product before.
>>
>>100867375
>what reader app do people use?
Comic Glass because it can open nearly any file type for reading material and has folder options with safety locks, plus izip for opening downloaded folders that are password-protected.

It just sucks that they took away the horizontal flip feature, I hope it gets brought back.
>>
>>100868067
>Thats because you used that time for downloading
Which takes less than 10sec for a ~100mb tank batch
Individual chapters download so fast that often times they are done by the time I open PV.

>And I can download new chapter with the apps and open with PV.
Which is even slower and enjoy your shit quality.

>plus no loading time for me,except if your internet a shit
No loading time for me because I'm not an online reader pleb.

Whatever please you pleb

>reading your mango on a website

I bet you fucking watch streams, too.
>>
So perfect viewer for stuff I download in batches, probably older finished stuff and Manga rock for "streaming" newer releases. Sound good for use on a N7?
>>
>>100868678
Yes, you can't go wrong with Perfect Viewer. Might consider Manga Watcher for streaming instead. It even notifies you of new chapters.
>>
>>100868678
>Manga rock for "streaming" newer releases
I'd implore you to just try the PV route first. It is actually much easier and more efficient than relying on some 3rd party app for your chinese comics.
>>
>>100868802
Does watcher have a better window or bigger library or something? I'm open to whatever's best

>>100868807
I'm most likely going to check for new chapters on the toilet or something, where I can't easily move them over via usb. Unless PV does the streaming too
>>
>>100868678
Try Perfect Viewer first.
>>
>>100868015
For mini, I've tried using it and it was great in terms of functionality and performance.
Unfortunately, I haven't found any places to try out Nexus/Kobo (living in straya).

With that being said, I think I''ll leave out mini since I don't really need a dedicated tablet as I just want a reasonable device to read manga on.

>>100868160
>>100868193
Seems like Aura is the right choice for reading manga only device.

Just want to confirm, for Nexus by using Perfect Viewer/Manga Watcher I could either:
- Download straight from the site and read?
- Import from desktop (zip/rar) and read?


With that being said, I think I'll go for Nexus. Kobo is very tempting but yeah...
>>
>>100868955
>I'm most likely going to check for new chapters on the toilet or something
Scanlator sites (and mangatraders for ease of tracking).

Seriously.

Faster updates than waiting on an online reader that pulls from shit sources.
>>
>>100869072
In that case how about a good rss feed for the N7 that I can add the sites to? Haven't used one in ages since i tend to just manually check when I think about it
>>
Is there a program similar to PerfectViewer for the desktop?
I use HoneyView but it would be nice to browse through the covers like the bookshelf view in PerfectViewer.
>>
>>100868998
1. Download directly using your Nexus and save to a specific folder for all your manga to keep it organized. Takes a few seconds but the quality of scans would be higher.
2. Download to your computer and use your Nexus to grab files over your network(no need to plug it in)
3. Stream using whatever app if you're really lazy.
>>
>>100868955
>Does watcher have a better window or bigger library or something? I'm open to whatever's best
It uses whole screen, I can't really compare it since I only used Manga Watcher. Didn't see anything I didn't like in it, except that screen rotation wasn't enabled by default and I though I could only read horizontal on it for a few days.


>>100868998
>Just want to confirm, for Nexus by using Perfect Viewer/Manga Watcher I could either:

Yes for both.

I must have living under the rock...

Can you really transfer files without USB connections?

>>100869368
Airdroid.

Most certainly.

So /a/. Anybody read manga on their phones? Have the Galaxy S4 and all I can really do is throw a bunch of rars on and open them with es file explorer.
And before anybody complains, I don't like reading on my phone. It just so happens that pulling guard duty leaves you with a lot of time to do nothing and only a phone to carry around with you.
>>
>>100869693
You can't, like, sneak a small manga book on you?
>>
>>100869716
We're talking hours of guard shifts and weeks of it. Plus it's kind of hard/costly to get those things when deployed especially with the cost of shipping.
>>
>>100869693
I tried. I was using an app called mangasearcher, but it's finicky on some devices and doesn't have the best selection. I honestly prefer my PC or just a book
>>
>>100869693
I use my phone to read Yotsuba when I'm waiting on the bus or when I'm inbetween classes. Just make a folder to keep things organized.
>>
>>100869693
I use an iphone. Hate having the thing compared to other smartphones but I'm on someone else's plan and it's easy to download manga onto.
