Heard of the term “Manga”? It simply refers to Japanese Comics. It is popular in the U.S because a lot of “Manga” content is now being translated into English. There are several reading apps dedicated to them available to Android users who are manga fans. We have listed some of the best manga apps for Android below.
The app offers a very good manga reading experience. It provides a clean user interface without annoying ads. It is an extremely compact manga reader app available on the Play Store.
You can read manga or download tons of Manga with the help of some reliable sources that BuluManga utilizes. The manga or comics available are high in quality and most of the popular series are regularly updated. You can even select specific chapters to download and read later, or you can select all the chapters in a manga. For instance, if you download all of the chapters in Naruto series, you will have to download a total of 1.9 GB.
Also, you can filter manga by category or rank. It also offers an immersive mode (Full-Screen mode) which you can enable through the app settings. The brightness for the viewer can be adjusted from the app settings as well.
It is not a dedicated Manga reader app, but it surely does offer you to read a lot of good Manga collections. Therefore, it acts as a complete comic reading solution on your Android device. It is one of the best manga apps that offer a high-quality user interface.
ComiXology offers in-app purchases and subscription plans to get unlimited access and offline reading capability. You get the ability to preview books before you buy. The app delivers a simple yet rich user experience. You would also find some of the most popular (but premium) Manga collections which you may not find elsewhere.
One of the best manga apps that utilize a lot of sources to greet you with an awesome “manga” reading time. Although, you will find a clone of the same app under another developer’s name at the Play Store. So, it does not matter which one of them you prefer using (it is the same thing!).
It provides a full-screen reading mode and also lets you keep the screen awake when you start reading manga on apps. You may not be able to find the option to download the chapters, but all you have to do is just tap on a chapter and click on the download button (arrow button)
It is one of the simplest manga apps for Android. Crunchyroll does not offer the needed features like downloading, full-screen mode, and keep screen awake.
Crunchyroll is a popular streaming service on the web for anime videos. You can simply browse for various types of collections, sort them, and start reading manga.
It comes with an impressive user interface being one of the best solutions available to read manga. You can choose from a variety of manga sources that includes Batoto, Kiss Manga, Manga Reader, MangaHere and some more similar familiar sources categorized under different languages.
Manga Rock utilizes its sources to provide manga in English, German, Portuguese, Japanese and some other languages. It lets you filter your search by sources, time, and updates. It offers a pro version to it and in order to upgrade you need to pay 5.99 USD. After successfully upgrading to the premium version, you can download unlimited manga collections, get rid of the in-app advertisements and also get the ability to schedule the download for new chapters to read manga later.
As the name suggests, MangaSearcher helps in searching manga. The user interface offered is potentially outdated, but it offers a huge collection that you will eventually fall in love to read manga regularly.
It deserves its spot among the best manga apps for Android due to the quantity of manga it offers and all for free. However, the app displays advertisement banners while reading manga, which might distract you at times. I have had an amazing manga reading experience despite its outdated UI.
In addition, there are other popular solutions like MangaZone and Zingbox to let you read manga on apps. However, they are not verified as safe to be installed on your device, and that is the reason we did not mention them among the best manga apps available. You may try them at your own risk and let us know your thoughts.
