When I can get a large screen eink device (like Kindle DX) that either has 500GB+ storage or the ability to mount file systems wirelessly with ssh or smb, I will then read manga on a tablet. I'm really looking forward to it, but there isn't much demand for those features so who knows when it will happen.

>buying a dedicated device that does only one thing
Otherwise I'd be buying a multipurpose device and only use it for reading. The only useful features of tablets my phone already does: wireless site mapping and ODB interface.

Nexus 7 perfect for mangos, although they keep randomly removing manga apps for whatever reason from the store, you can download APKs.

Also got this thing for animu, though I don't really watch anime on the tablet (shitty res, shitty performance, shitty decoding), it's useful for getting torrent URLs for my seedbox without getting off my ass and checking air times though.

I ended up getting one of the older iPads, 2 I think, because I can't tell the difference between all that Retina baloney.

I ended up using it a lot for readings and downloading journal articles for uni instead of having to print them out for lab reports and leaving manga on Dropbox for those train rides to and from uni. If I wanted to watch anime, I copy a few episodes in the night before, but they'd have to be DeadFish encodes

I mostly use them for reading manga, posting on /a/, posting on various forums (there is apps to post on ipb/vbulletin forums), github reading, youtube, liveleak, twitch, news, skype... when I'm too lazy to get out of bed, anyway. Or when I'm cooking meals and waiting for shit to finish.
also when I smoke since I do it outside, I'm sorry for being scum

It's way easier to post on and view stuff with a tablet than a phone or traditional handheld device, it's also easier to read manga and play games on (PSP/PSX emulators work well on my tablet)

>>102252868
Depends, for Nexus anime watching might drain the power more quickly than normal, on a full charge i can read manga or just leave it on just about all day long. If you sleep close to a plug it doesn't matter much anyway since you can charge it while you read if you're stationary.

And then you get glare issues depending on lighting, worse battery life, etc.

I have a kindle touch I toss novels on and just carry it everywhere. During lunch or w/e when I feel like reading I just start reading on it from where I left off. No worries about wasting battery power and the screen is indeed much more relaxing on the eyes.

Sure if you have a tablet already and can't afford an e-reader I can see not wanting to get one, but they aren't terribly expensive and are well worth it.

I'll give you the lighting maybe, but displaying white text on a black background hardly affects the battery life. As for relaxing on the eyes, I can read in complete darkness for quite a long time with no complaints.

I guess I just don't see why I'd need a whole other device for slightly more optimum conditions.

Exactly, tablet battery life is 90% screen backlight unless you are running super graphic intense games.

Reading a book for an hour or two with the screen sitting on, even with low brightness and white on black is going to eat battery.

I charge my kindle maybe once a month and read around 2 or so hours a day, including having the glow light on dimly before bed.

If you want to read manga on a nook simple touch, you'll have to load android onto it so it's not worth it if you want it for anything other than .epub files.

Tablets don't really respect my freedom, most all of them make it hard or impossible to install another OS, and the OS that come with them, particularly Android and iOS, or the abomination Windows RT, don't have basic things I need, and general freedom to use the OS the way I want or install software I want freely. These things are so unbelievably locked down it's disgusting.

I think most people don't view them as computers, so they don't care. But to me they're just computers, and the things they expect me to put up with on those computers isn't something I'll accept.

Apple’s recent success also exacerbates anti-Apple frustration. The computing industry clearly favored Windows’ libertarian-like policy for two decades as Apple languished and inexpensive Microsoft Windows PCs dominated the industry. But, in the last few years, the tides have shifted dramatically as PCs have lost some ground to Macs, and iOS and other “closed” smartphone and tablet platforms have succeeded. Nobody likes to think that their side is “losing,” especially after it was winning for so long

Where Apple says “You can’t do that because we think that would suck,” Microsoft and Android usually say, “You can do whatever you want, even if it sucks.” They give users more control with endless possibilities to create problems, and it’s up to the users to tolerate or fix any resulting problems themselves. Google and Microsoft are platform libertarians: you’re generally free to do much more, but you’re on your own when it breaks.

It has almost everything an anon would use. MicroSD, 2xmicroUSB, miniHDMI, Wi-Fi and an audio jack. It lacks Bluetooth, but I can live with that.

Also mine came with Aldiko Reader, good for .pdfs and .epubs since all of the readers in the /a/ndroid pastebin do at least one thing wrong or cost money. The default file manager sucks sixty niggers at once tho, so get a new one immediately.

I would agree for iOS devices, I don't like them, but certainly not Macs.

OSX is far less locked down than Windows, and better from a technological standpoint. Being a modern POSIX compliant Unix system, and Windows being a what I consider a piece of crap. Many parts of OSX are even open source and benefit other people then themselves, e.g. CUPS.

I only use Linux, but would be glad to have a rMBP, a piece of hardware that pretty much no one is competing against them with. (No high resolution IPS matte screen on a laptop like that with the exception of a very few, all of which are worse in other ways than the rMBP)

Windows is extremely locked down to an incredible extent, and Microsoft is one of the most anti competitive companies, if not THE most anti competitive company in existence.

Google is pretty much just as bad as iOS devices with Android.

Just get a Surface or any other X86 tablet and install Linux on them, Ubuntu has a version for touch based devices IIRC

Mangawatcher for android and you'll have to download for iPad.

Kissanime for anime streams through browser, but if you want to torrent directly to the tablet you can and just use mxplayer to watch it on as long as it's 8bit.

You can also use es file explorer if you have anime already downloaded in your computer and want to access it on your tablet.

1. Download desired manga from scanlation group's website (You can find the group on mangaupdates)
2. Plug Nexus 7 into PC (if you downloaded it directly to the Nexus 7 through the web browser you can skip this step and the next one)
3. Move files over to Nexus 7 through Windows Explorer
4. Read manga with app of choice (Perfect Viewer is recommended)
>>
>>102284039
1. If you're planning on using an app that does online reader stuff, download a manga reader app and fucking read.
2. If you're trying to actually put manga from your PC on to your nexus, you can do as >>102284354 said and put it on there through windows explorer, or what I like to do is run an FTP server app on my Nexus and upload to it via FTP client.

Because I buy it or use dual page readers so I can see the media properly.

Reading single pages is wrong.
>>
>>102284354
As an addition to this, ES File Browser is the best file browser on the market. Use that for when you plan on downloading a chapter/volume and move it into a more organized folder (I have mine in a Manga folder)

If you go into Perfect Viewers settings (pop up main menu by tapping middle screen), go to the second down tab/icon on the left, and check "Auto detect page border", this will cut out any blank whitespace making reading easier.

Also under the third icon/tab tap Fit to screen, to ensure it always resizes properly.

Next move down to the fourth icon, tap Auto single page. This will auto crop any two page spreads to act like single pages. So no abhorring resizing occurs.

Next in the bottom icon, open preferences. under display change the background colour to solid black. I find the gray unsightly. In Browse & Navigate settings there is an Auto open next file setting you may like.

That's my setup, I find it optimal for reading manga.

Which app do you use for reading mango on your android phone /a/?

So, lucky for you, I've considered this before.

If you only have the e-reader, you need a fairly constant 5 volt supply to charge it, with at least 500mA. The constant 5 volts is going to be a problem, but luckily most tablets can probably take up to 6 volts before failing - so I'd probably build a zinc pile battery and use that for charging - unless there are regulator options available.

If you have the included AC charger, you're in luck for any post 1900 level technology. Modern AC chargers take 80-250V, at any frequency, so you can plug it in anywhere in the world and it will work. An unadvertised fact is that many of these chargers work on high voltage DC, generally 100-300V, which means you could even use the Edison system.

If you don't have access to a power grid, but do have a machine shop, you could construct an AC generator to feed into the charger. Regulation wouldn't be terribly important if you can maintain at least 100 volts. Alternately, you could use quite a bit more of a chemical battery with the AC charger in hand, using it in DC mode.

The better question is, will you get arrested or shot for loli manga in the past or post apocalyptic future?

This, except I prefer white as my background color to make it seem like a larger page.

Also Lanczos is the best resizer.

I do, and it's convenient and great.

Night reading isn't so bad on a tablet, you can add screen filters which are easier on the eyes. It makes the manga look a little bit orange but at least your eyes aren't tearing open.

Japanese is fucking easy to guess as long as you know your particles and some vocab. You'll notice patterns as you read and learn that way. Just make sure you either:
1. Read things with furigana
2. Have jisho kanji by radicals open at all times
or instal Rikaikun/Rikaichan if you're reading text on your browser (although I wouldn't recommend this because you'll form a habit of just reading the definitions without paying attention to pronunciation or kanji, has happened to me).

I've just bought a Nexus 7 2013 and holy shit, it's smaller than I thought.

That said, the panel size is similar to the average manga size so it's not that hard to read like many other anons claimed.

A lot of you recommended PV. Is that the best app for reading manga at the moment?
>>
>>102287528
manga watcher not sure if it's on the app store anymore so yeah you might have to pirate it.

>I've just bought a Nexus 7 2013 and holy shit, it's smaller than I thought.
I almost pulled the trigger until I held one in stores, it is kind of small.

I've tried a few but PV is godly, it's like Honeyview on Android.

Yeah, the N7 is definitely on the small side, but follow the advice earlier in this thread about setting up PV and it's pretty good.

I miss buttons for usage with gloves, but the screen is absolutely glorious. Also if you get a case, you might want to shop for some third party ones, the first party ones aren't the greatest.

also, it's a tablet on a tablet, hue

I like HV. I'm currently using one for my desktop (older version, I don't like the new version). With that being said, yes, this apps seems like a perfect reader for me.

>>102287872
As for the case, I'm going for TPU case with a pouch for traveling. Those leather cases seems too much for me in terms of functionality and I hate slim/sillicone cases as I avoid them like a plague.

Is there a new tablet with a replaceable battery? I would use the shit out of tablets, but I don't want it to get the point where I have to charge it every 30 minutes. I don't see much of a point in upgrading if I'm just reading and browsing the internet with it anyway

Not reading manga on a 8K screen so large the characters in your manga are life-sized.

As an avid manga reader, I've actually been considering buying a tablet for reading for a long time. Is 7' screen the most ideal for manga reading or would a 10" screen be just as nice?

10" is probably too large, go with 7 or 8"
>>
>>102289084

>>102289084
7" is best in terms of portability and comfort. You will get a better viewing experience with the 8" probably.

Because the quality of the vast majority of manga scanlationss are too awful to even bother, and official digital manga are way too expensive.

I just got my Kobo aura since two days ago so I just downloaded the first manga that comes to my mind, that ir Death Note. I can see the color pages when I read it in the computer but in the kobo it just doesnt get those first pages, I guess I will have to do more test, can you give me some advise. Btw I downloaded that from some random torrent.

I don't read enough manga to make it worth getting a tablet because all I would use the tablet for would to read manga. Maybe a Kindle one day if the price is right.

Ok, guys.

Also what's a good manga reader app on Windows 8?

I was given an apple air ipad a month ago. I thought it's a useless piece of shit, but It's fucking great. 2k+ resolution screen, fucking light, perfect for watching anime and reading manga. Also absolutely perfect for hentai.
>>
Really don't get why people with android don't just use manga watcher to read manga. It's the best app out there for it and you don't have to keep the shit you download if you have a tablet with low storage. It even has a cloud sync so you can keep track of what chapter and page you left off on when you switch devices.
>>
>>102291186
4hr battery life is a thing of the past, unless you play game on it without charging in. SP2 can last me 9hrs if all I do is read manga and browse.
