Will a version of the manga reader be available for this?

Not sure if you've already found this on the Amazon App Store, but I thought I'd post a link just in case you'd missed it. Not sure if it will show up as compatible with your specific device (it doesn't seem to be compatible with my non-HD Kindle Fire, and I'm not sure exactly which models it is compatible with)

I'll only add a little bit to this, probably not very helpful though.

In the Amazon store, even though the manga app shows up as not being compatible with my Fire HD (I'm not buying a new HDX, the differences are too slight to justify the expense), I was able to install it by side-loading it from 1mobilmarket instead. It started OK, but since I'm not paying for Manga (yet), it won't let me get past the log in to even see the "free" latest chapter of each one, so I can't comment any further on whether it actually works or not. Apparently you have to specifically be a manga or full-access subscriber to see anything at all on a device as opposed to on a PC with a browser. As far as the HDX goes, opposed to the earlier two Kindle fire versions HD and original, I think you're treading into new ground here anyway, and so I can't speculate further whether that will have any other compatibility issues or not.


Edit: I found the "Tour" mode that lets you read the free chapters. It seems to work OK on the HD even though Amazon seems to think it isn't compatible. As above though, I don't have an HDX to test with.

Well blah, seems to be a missing flash or such (says no plugin found), and the app in the Amazon store is for standard android, not what is on the HDX. Guess will be using the Surface Pro for now to read manga.

I managed to get the app onto my Kindle HDX by sideloading, but I can only get a handful of random chapters to load. Most of the time if I click on a chapter, I get a message that says, "Manga has stopped" and it either kicks me back to the main screen or the entire app crashes.

It is NOT compatible with the Kindle Fire HDX either. When I click on "Get App" it says "Crunchyroll Manga is incompatible with your device. You cannot purchase this app from your device". Strange that CR is taking so long to make this app compatible with the Kindle Fire, specially with the monstrous sales numbers that Amazon had last year.
