Manga websites?(in japanese)

Does anyone know of any manga websites or apps that allow you to read Japanese manga for free or have some paid monthly subscription so I don’t have to pay for every manga I want to read. I found some apps on the play store that had free manga but they didn’t have the ones I like so let me know. Thanks!

I don’t know if this works, but https://shonenjumpplus.com/

Is this like a kickstarter for manga? :sweat_smile:

Not sure what you mean by that.

I mean, if you go clicking around on banners and stuff, I don’t know where you’ll end up, but if you scroll down there is a long list of manga series.

It’s also illegal.

Check out Mangaz, a digital manga library created by Ken Akamatsu that, with the permission of the mangaka, has a ton of out of print manga and helps the mangaka earn royalties through ad revenue. It’s both a place to read a lot of manga and a really good service to support Japanese creators.

Bookwalker has some free manga and also a subscription service. For the website, I think you just need to go to the .jp version. For the app, if your phone has Japanese language as the default, you will automatically get the JP version. Otherwise, it is a bit of a pain (the only way I have found is searching with a Japanese word then clicking the option to go to the JP store).

oh, sorry, ignore that one then.

Can you delete your original post to remove the link? :slightly_smiling_face: it’s against the community guidelines.

Kindle Unlimited maybe? There are lots of manga series on Kindle Unlimited, in addition to novels and everything else.

seriously? I was unaware it was illegal and I apologized. Get a life.

… Why are you snapping at the same person you just apologised to?

And also, did you actually do anything about it? An apology without contrition is no apology at all.

Maybe they intended to snap at Radish8. Perhaps they didn’t realize that “so you should remove it” was the implied point of the initial comment by darkness_rising as well.

I think it was a chance to delete it yourself but it looks like it was already flagged. I think you get dinged in some way for having a flagged comment.

I found this on the Bunpro forums:

I’m currently using Kindle Unlimited on Amazon.co.jp. It’s way cheaper than paying for a book every time I want to read it. You can ‘borrow’ up to 10 books at a time. There are a lot of manga available to read. Not all of them, though. But it’s way better than nothing. I mostly use it for novels and light novels, though.
