Hey everyone!
Just wondering if anyone out there knows if any good manga series are available on the Nook eReader?
I tried searching for "manga" in general and it only came up with Yaoi and romance manga, which are great, but I'd like a little more variety... Without titles to search for it gets a little too tricky?

Anyone read manga on a eReader that has suggestions?
I appreciate the help!

Checked Barnes and Noble's site. It listed 381 titles for the Nook for the keyword "manga." This included a lot of:

* Instructional books and topical books
* Comics written in English with some eastern influence
* Romance series (a mix of girl x boy and boy x boy)

Almost no general-audience stories that had been translated! I saw a couple volumes about Vampire Hunter D, and The 14th Dalai Lama... and that's it.

According to an article on ehow.com, the Nook supports the following formats: EPUB, PDB and PDF. However, it does not support DOC, LIT, TXT, AMZ, LRZ, or LRX formats.

I also have a nook color and I have been very disappointed with the current manga selection through B&N. It looks like one of the only major names they can get is digital manga publishing which is why you see so much yaoi and romance but not much else atm besides Vampire Hunter D. I don't see it changing anytime soon either with both VIZ and DarkHorse having online manga available from their respective websites directly (for a fee of course) or with apple apps such as ipad and itouch. But as caddyalan stated above, it will support other formats if you want to download (epub, pdf etc...)

There isn't a whole bunch you can get for the Nook on B&N as far as I know. I mainly buy physical copies and also borrow copies from my friend anyways. The way I put manga on my Nook is when I download it it's already in a .zip file, then I rename it to .cbz. A program called "Calibre" will convert it for you and put it on your Nook. PM me if you need any help.
