yea i definitely would read it on an eBook or tablet only if they price the digital copy appropriately. I'm not paying the same price as a physical copy.

Naturally! Yes, of course. In regards to being easier to attain, less physical space to collect, etc... Our world has already been moving to the digital age. We need to embrace that. The only thing I had to overcome was missing out on the box/cover art. I grew out of it quickly.

Since 99% of the manga are in black and white I wouldn't mind reading them on an e-book and the screen of my current phone is 5 inch so it is just a tad to small to really enjoy reading manga compared to a bigger screen.

I get Weekly Shonen Jump on my Galaxy tablet, and have bought a few digital manga that are hard to find in print, but now I wish I had sprung for the 10 inch model instead of the 7. The price of books for tablets and readers needs to come down, though. Their cost to produce them is nearly nil, and they don't have to warehouse or ship them, so they could do better than 5 bucks for virtual when print is 8.

If the manga's licensed in English, I'll rather the hardcopy version. I reserve tablet reading for obscure manga that will never see the light of licensing.

No, you just can't ever beat it in actual proper book form IMO ^^

I prefer a paper release of anything, reading on a screen strains my eyes and I get distracted easily.
Although there are some manga that, if re-published in eBook form, I would definitely purchase.

I'm torn. Manga that's like my FAVE of all time I'd get a hardcopy just because I love being able to read whenever without electricity or to easily share with others (some e-readers have a sharing function, but obviously to those who have the same kind). I'd get an e-reader for anime magazines or books that aren't my favorite, mostly because I like to donate my books to the local library. I agree with an earlier comment that e-reader prices are a bit high. Not everyone can afford to drop $130-$299 on an e-reader. At least you can get books for cheap and in your hand much easier.

I read manga on Kindle Paperwhite, mostly Attack on Titan and Fairy Tail since both are available on Amazon in the Kindle Version, and must say - as I did once before - that working on this device is pure MAGIC and I think Kindle Paperwhite is worth the price Amazon asks for it. Too bad most great mangas aren't kindle'ized and to read them on the device one must [you-know-what]...

I use my kindle to read e-books, but when I like it enough, I still buy a physical copy. It's really different seeing it on a screen and seeing all the details on hand.
