As an Ebook reader, Kindle is accepted by more and more book lovers. Some manga fans may be curious that can they read manga on Kindle? The answer is definitely yes. How to read manga on Kindle? Don't worry. The following parts will show you how to read manga on Kindle.
Part 1: Reading Purchased Amazon Manga on Kindle
The easiest way is to purchase the manga from Amazon store. There are thousands of manga covering a broad range of taste. Marvel comics, Manga books and collections are all available for your choice.
Browsing the amazon store on your computer or just through your Kindle device, you can buy any manga you like. Once the manga has been purchased, it will be ready to download. What you have to do is to download it and read it.
Part 2: Reading Downloaded Manga on Kindle
However, for real manga fans, purchasing from Amazon site can not fulfill their dedications to comics. They are looking for every chance to download the most popular manga from various sites, such as mangabaseng, egscans, and eatmanga. Why? Because they can get high-quality free manga there which can not only save their money but also allow they to read the updated manga.
Manga is basically pictures, not text. The downloaded manga is mostly in the format of JPEG/PNG/CBR/CBZ/PDF which is not supported by Kindle device. When the first time I tried to read Manga on my Kindle, I had no clue but just copied these kinds of files to it. They totally drived my crazy, and I even gave up. However, I can not pursuade myself to abandon manga and Kindle. So I am here to share these easy and good methods about reading manga on Kindle with you guys.
Method 1: Calibre
I would like to recommend Calibre. This is a must-be tool for every e-reader user.
Step 1: Download and Installation
Step 2: Convert downloaded file to Mobi format
Add your renamed Zip or RAR manga to Calibre. If there are more than one files, you can add them to the Calibre at one time. Then right click the book to choose to “Convert Individually” or “Bulk Convert”. Choose “Mobi” as the output format, and click “OK” to finish the conversion.
Step 3: Read Manga on Kindle
Then use the USB cable to connect your Kindle to PC. Copy the converted file to Documents folder of your Kindle device. Eject your Kindle device from your computer, you will find the converted mobi manga on your Kindle. Just click the book title to open it.
You can see the manga displays very well on my old Kindle Keyboard. I have to admit there are also some downsides, like image color is black and white. Anyway, Calibre was not designed to convert images, but to convert normal ebooks.
Method 2: Kindle Comic Converter
Kindle Comic Converter is designed to transform your PNG, JPG, GIF, CBZ, CBR and CB7 files into EPUB or MOBI format e-books. With it, reading comics and manga on your E-Ink Kindle is much easier.

There are also other options for your choice, such as Manga mode, webtoon mode, Spread splitter and so on. You can select these options according to your device and your reading custom. Please select "MOBI" as the output format for your manga and click "Convert" to finish the converting process.
Step 3: Reading Manga on Kindle
The converted manga will be in the same folder as the original file, but in Mobi format. Please just cope it to the “documents” folder of your Kindle device. It displays very well on my Kindle.
