Absolutely. I already read them on my iPhone. If I could find a place to buy bi-lingual (Eng/Japanese) manga for a digital device, I would be delighted.

I wouldn't mind such. All depends on the price they'd be asking.

I already have a Kindle so I could quit taking up to 20 large books on deployments, so if I could get cheap manga (as opposed to a ridiculous 10$ per 30 min manga) I would strongly consider it.

>buying manga.
>2012, almost 2013.
I just download everything, and if I'm going to buy it, I want a hard cover, because its easy to get a free digital copy and if your going to buy it you want a physical copy, which you can display in all its splendor.

Nope. I rather not.
I like reading the book itself, not on an e-book.

I've been testing out e-manga on my new Kindle Fire HD and so far so good however I do have to enlarge some pages so it's readable. I do like the new adjustable brightness feature. I don't have much bookshelf space anymore so this is ideal for me.

I was actually thinking, is there a big quality difference between a digital Manga and a print Manga? Because the price is so difference that I can't stop wondering. If there isn't a quality difference, then of course I will buy the digital Manga, because it is so cheap, but if the digital Manga sucks, then I just pay a little more for the Print version.

I have a Nook HD (and a Nook Color) from Barnes and Noble, and I already read some US comics on them and it's quite a nice experience.
The best thing about going to ebook format is that you can have an entire series avaialble in a device that weighs all of 11 ounces (0.3 Kilos), but is close to the dimensions of a manga except thickness.

No dog-eared or torn pages, no paper cuts, and it doesn't take up every shelf you own to store them. Keeping a few more trees from being turned into paper is nice too.

From what I'm seeing on the B&N website, the prices seem to range from $4.99 to $9.99 (USD), which isn't bad.

I downloaded a sample of Naruto Vol 59 and discovered it's setup to read right to left, so at least with that title you don't have to worry about flipped images.

Right now, you can read comics on the Nook devices, but not the PC or web apps. Not sure about the iOS versions, or the stock Android apps.
I think part of that is the page zoom function they have, but also to try an prevent titles from being pirated as easily as pressing Print Screen, which I understand. Neither they, nor the people creating the Manga are doing it to have it swiped by people who don't want to pay for it.
Hopefully they'll be able to do somehting in the code of the PC app to disable screen capturing, as it would be nice to read comics on my HDTV.

That said, it's fine as is for now.

I have a kindle fire and I love reading books on it. That being said, I still like reading paper books every once in a while. I have read a few Mangas on the Kindle and I actually prefer reading Mangas in paper. I dont mind having bookshelves full of mangas. I like the look of books and the feel of being in a library so I will probably stick to reading Mangas in paper.

Sure why not. Most books and texts are going to be transferred into them anyway.
