Just wondering how you guys read manga. For me personally, I hate reading it online. Having a physical copy and flipping through the pages feels so much better than clicking a screen. The only drawback I can think of about physical copies is the price though. Paying 12 dollars for one volume is kind of annoying considering how easy, and you know, free, it is to read it online.

I usually do read it online though just because of the accessibility and how you don't have to spend any money, although I do buy it physically if I really like it. What about you guys?

i read both physical and digital. and by that i mean i get digital manga from a legitimate source - Book Live
reading digital doesnt have to mean piracy. Book live also lets you download and read offline, which is very handy.
(its also miles better than the trash Crunchy app, but thats another story)

i strongly condemn manga and light novel piracy. the manga authors need all the help they can get, and even the most popular mangaka have an insane work schedule, sleeping for only 4 hours or so.

I prefer reading the physical copy of manga much much more than online and often online I end up dropping the series because I'm not too keen on reading manga online. But unfortunately, I don't have the money to buy physical manga. I really do want to read more manga and get more involved with the manga community though so I guess I'll have to get used to it.

I read both. I mainly raid my library for their volumes. I like finding hidden gems that I normally wouldn't find online.

Price-wise, I prefer digital. But for a series I really enjoy, there's nothing that beats the feel of paper in my hands.

Definitely as a book. I dont like to read a manga or a book online. I must have the book in my hand so i prefer reading a manga as book not online.

Online because it's hard for me to read print material these days... my poor old eyes just don't like reading anything that's not on a screen.
