So i have been looking for a way to do this for a few days now and i just cant seem to find anything. What i'm looking for is this. A preferably legal way, although any solution will do if there are no pay options available because i can always buy the paper then load the digital for travel convenience.

What I'm looking for is a digital (ipad friendly. This means can be pdf, kindle app or any ipad app friendly) way to buy or find Digital manga that is still in Japanese. I'm looking for a manga with the furigana (hirigana written over the kanji) to help practice my Japanese. I can find tons of legal translated manga on the ipad but no Japanese manga. I do not as of now have a Japanese itunes account or a Japanese address or credit card to open one.

Please help me, its really aggravating they make it so hard to find ways to buy their products lol. thank you

Something like these? I haven't used them myself, so I can't vouch for them

You might also check out the links on this super-long page. Some of them might be expired, but you might find something good:

I heard that Shueisha had an iPhone app but couldn't find it in the appstore on my wife's phone.

I also heard about an ad supported Shonen Jump app for Android but I am not sure if it has actually been released yet.

I prefer paper. I bought an ereader a year ago but am back to dead trees as my preferred medium.
