i put a couple of manga on my friend's b&w kindle 2, just to see what it looked like. i used free .jpg and .png files off the internet which i converted to pdf and loaded over. the results weren't great, but it got me interested. i have yet to try commercially available manga from amazon or whatever. i'd also be curious to see what manga looks like on a slightly bigger screen, like an ipad or kindle dx...

what about you?

I haven't tried it out much, but I think I would not want to read manga on anything smaller than an iPad. And, as the previous poster mentioned, the format is going to matter a great deal as well.

I've read cbz and cbr files on my nook color just fine.

Granted I've got cyanogenmod on it (I've turned it into a normal tablet for those "non-techie" people) and use Perfect Viewer. I'm not sure if there is any good stock viewers for it.

Edit:
I greatly recommend Perfect Viewer for anyone with an android tablet. It's a fairly simple program that is very good at what it does.

I've tried a bit of manga purchased from Amazon on my Kindle (3; officially called "keypad" I guess.) Barely readable, and took too much work to make things out to be enjoyable. I don't expect to acquire any more manga for ereader viewing until I get an iPad.

I used iManga for iPad when I had mine. It worked great. Though I wish I knew mobile sites for manga...-___-

i have a kindle and would rather read manga on my phone. the kindle is not really good at rescaling images or zooming, and the screen is kinda small. It would probably work fine on kindle fire or maybe kindle dx.

I have eManga and some other manga apps in my iPad but I dont really use it much.
I prefer reading in my laptop and in books X3

I read digital manga on my Acer Iconia 10 inch tablet and find it somewhat satisfying. I will always prefer the actual books but since I can't afford to own a physical copy of every manga I would ever like to read I definitely appreciate it as an alternative.
