Reading manga on the Kindle

Just saw this on another blog and thought it was worth stop lurking.

What do you think? I have been skeptical about ereaders since the kindle first came out, but this could be a good enough reason to try one out seeing as they aren't exactly expensive. Has anyone tried it?

It's quite problematic...

You need to download a manga, which is full of legal issues.

The only thing that keep me from buying a kindle 3, is the screen, the screen is a little to small to fully enjoy manga and BD. A DX would be perfect, but it cost to much.
I'm currently looking for the Notion Ink Adam who would be perfect in every way possible to read and do lot of other thing.

Is there no way to pay to download manga? I read Japanese and have been legally paying to download raws from Japan for a while.

I don't know what the editorials in Japan think about it. Because most people (outside Japan) who read scanlated manga doesn't read Japanese.

I've seen a few articles on ANN over the past year about manga getting digital releases but they seem to be for less popular series (and it seems like most of them are BL as well) so there doesn't seem to be much point yet in getting a kindle to read manga. I would love to be able to buy some of my manga digitally and read them on the kindle/whatever instead of having a 20+ volume series take up more of my precious shelf space but it seems like that day is a good ways off.

I guess it's a different story in Japan because mobile-phone manga is a massive seller. eBooks are very popular here, although the book industry is refusing to back ereaders in Japanes stores, which is why we have to import Kindles. Most eBook sales are manga.
