Answerman’s answered some manga questions this time around so here’s some more riveting answers and chimes from yours truly:
I’m thinking of buying an e-reader to read manga. Which one is the best?
Answerman Answer in Short: My guess would be that iPad would be the best as it is the most widely sold unit out there.
Rio’s Take: Hold off on buying an e-reader for now unless you like yaoi because that’s mainly what they sell digitally right now.
Is it JUST the job of the fans to keep the manga industry going? Or do we need to see more on the part of the big companies to persuade people to buy the official releases?
Answerman Answer in Short: If you love the industry, support it by buying their merchandise. That’s the only thing that fans have to do. Companies will have to find the answer to luring people to buy their materials whether it’s to go digitally or any other solution they come up with.
Rio’s Take: Ditto. Just don’t add yourself as the problem and not part of the solution.
