Overall, Mangle lets you view Manga as Manga books on your Kindle 3 easily and well. It’s just like reading a book since your place in the Manga and your settings are preserved.

    It should be noted that the prime purpose of this is for reading scanlations – illegal scans of manga. You could argue fair use however (lets say you scanned the manga yourself).

  2. Is there anywhere to buy commercial manga in electronic form? I’d be interested in buying some if there is.

  3. You can also use a great program called Calibre. also has good guides on studying Japanese on the kindle, and buying and reading Japanese eBooks.
