How do you read your chinese comics, /a/ ?
Pic related, the kobo, is how I got started - until I realized that regular ereaders like kobo or kindle are fucking useless because the screens are too fucking small and most scans even have white edges on the side so it gets even smaller.
After experimenting with multiple ereaders I finally got myself the big ass white one for 200$. But guess what, to get chapters on it you have to work some kind of insane computer magic that I'm just not capable of.
So after dozens of hours and hundreds of dollars wasted I finally got myself a tablet, the mangastorm app and am now as happy as can get. Fuck ereaders.
I read my books on my Thinkpad screen with brightness turned down. I'm not sure if it is the LCD screen keeping me from focusing on Dracula or the not very much caring what John Harker had for breakfast.
Do you use mangastorm?
I might get a tablet with sd slot soon. I don't know if it's possible but I want to use mangastorm to download content from batoto on a spare sd card as backlog since mangatraders is gone and you can't download from batoto directly.
Sorry, I don't know a fucking thing about software and electronics, it's a miracle I've come as far as 4chan.
Yeah, I bought a kobo and it was a headache. Doesn't sort by folder, can only change orientation manually, constantly fucked up and had to be reset, slow, etc.
Switched to a small tablet and it's perfect. Only drawback is the low battery life and fact that it doesn't charge from the computer (absolute bullshit). Otherwise it's easier and more intuitive to use, can get more space since the kobo's limited at 32gb and it takes 64gb. I don't understand why you'd use mangastorm though, isn't it like streaming for manga? I just download cbr files on my computer and use a cbr reader.
I read mostly everything on the Mangastorm app on my ipad mini, but it only lets me download stuff available on sites like batoto. So I archive my favorite series on my PC and read stuff that's not available on there as well.
I'm planning to buy a lenovo laptop tablet hybrid once Windows 10 is released for better manga reading and VN reading though.
I bought a kobo touch for $20 like two weeks ago because I couldn't stand reading on my old as fuck monitor. It's pretty good, but it pisses me off that some files will show up on it but not others. For example, Berserk.cbr's work fine, but a one piece cbr won't even show up in the physical device. In my file manager, it shows it as being on the kobo, but it doesn't show up in the library
Oh well, I've gotten better at japanese so I'll be able to start buying real books, anyway.
No. If you get the full version of mangastorm (literally 5 bucks) you can download batoto content in 100% quality to your tablet.
I don't know if you can extract those manga with the sd card though, I haven't tried that yet because I have to use an ipad as of now.
If it works it would be the most convenient way to download manga I can think of.
My niece stepped on the kobo aura I got as a gift, so I ordered the H20 on the 8th since they seem to be phasing out the aura HD.
Still no email about it having shipped. I contacted them, but they haven't gotten back to me.
I worry it's because I tried to send in a support ticket about replacing my aura, and it only gave me the phone option so I blanked out my support description and put "FUCK YOU". Then I went to go get the phone number for support and forgot I had changed it and it submitted like that.
On a related note, where do people get manga now that mangatraders is kill.
I hear there is some secret backlog hidden somewhere? I wasn't around for a while when it went down and now I'm not sure if the secret club really exists or people are spouting crap.
If you don't want to give sauce, can you at least confirm it's existence - I'd be glad to know that the mango are safe somewhere.
I just recently got a Galaxy tab pro 8.4 for reading comics/manga(same shit) on and I really dig it. I put them on my sd card either by connecting it to my computer or downloading it from my computer over my network. I pretty much use .cbz/.cbr files and use Perfect Viewer as the app i use, works well.
I have a Kindle 4 and it's pretty shitty for mangos, the resolution is too small and the size of the device is just not enough.
Manga support is horrible, too, fortunately there's tools like kcc and mangle.

>It's not that hard to convert your images
It probably isn't, but it is for me. I can't even open zip packages, all I ever get is data mash. On the internet I feel like a literal retard, nothing ever works the way I want it to work and even if I follow instructions exactly I never get the results I want.
mfw I'm a software autist.
I use my Surface. My Tab Pro 8.4 isn't big enough to be comfortable for reading. Shame that there are no good touch optimized Windows readers. CDisplayEX is alright but I have to swipe instead of tap.
I have a Kindle Paperwhite and it works pretty well for mango, just convert it with this Kindle Comic Converter thing, easy as hell.
pic related, what it looks like.
I used mangarock too but switched to mangastorm, it's infinitely better.
You can do verry subtle stuff like zooming one page, then fix the zoom, so the next page will be shown with the same amount of zoom.
Also, the library is great and you get a complete history of your order of reading.
It's the perfect manga reading programm on any device.
