Not free even with membership
by Squidcandy on 2020/01/22 03:34
I don’t understand why I still have to pay $6.99 for the manga I want to read even though I’m a member. It makes no sense to me.
Good

Goof
I can’t read after subscribing?
by dinnairufarore on 2020/01/20 17:43
I’m paying for this service but I can’t read mangas like persona 5? What’s this? Microtransaction or DLC? My God, that's like Netflix charging extra to see their original shows. That's why they are successful and you don't.
Great

If you want online manga, get this NOW
by lazar g on 2020/01/12 15:08
Ok so I’ve been spending the past month trying to find legit online manga apps, but all of them were (probably) illegal, and had horrible translating. But this one is perfectly legit, and has an amazing variety! Although you do need a subscription to get most of the content, it is only $2 a month and worth it!
Great
by Low Orb on 2020/01/11 03:15
Amazing
Needs improvement badly
by Lykosgreen on 2020/01/10 04:11
There is no bookmark or favorites option which is annoying if you follow many series. Also when catching up to a manga it’s annoying going to the next chapter because you have to press a small read next chapter button. And when you are finished a volume when marathoning there is no next chapter button it’s just a thing that says buy volume so you have to exit out of the manga and scroll down to the next chapter you’re on.
Amazing app for manga

It’s amazing and I’m having no problems with the app. Thanks for everything!!
Best way to read manga
by Soccer Nerd on 2020/01/06 05:28
Awesome Extremely
Ok, missing basic stuff
by Person#223 on 2020/01/03 23:56
Some series are on the site, not the app, no filters available for search, can't favorite titles. Kind of a chore to use. If you have a membership, tracking down the titles it applies to is a real pain.
Helps with all my manga needs
by CharlieKaericher on 2020/01/02 23:24
The title pretty much says it all.
missing chapters
by hdjanssja on 2020/01/02 02:05
It’s good BUT THERES MISSING CHAPTERS OF DEMON SLAYER. I would have rated it about 4 stars if there wasn’t missing chapters.
Great App
by KazueVol on 2019/12/30 22:38
It’s my main app for reading manga but i pay 2 dollars a month which is a VERY GOOD DEAL
Not letting me get premium
by Guttfeling on 2019/12/29 01:45
Great service it just doesn’t let me purchase the premium
Buggy
by abajoba21 on 2019/12/28 00:34
Very inconsistent load rates of chapters. Have to close and reopen a chapter several times just to finish it.
Doesn’t make sense
by casey0607! on 2019/12/27 14:54
Don’t understand what’s apart of the membership and what isn’t.
So much manga to read!!!
by Blobert1747 on 2019/12/26 01:31
There’s so many different titles to choose from that it’s hard to stop reading. Only downside is you have to buy certain series by volume, but big series like One Piece and Naruto don’t encounter this, so it’s a win win. Would definitely buy certain volumes though. It’s a fair price for 100+ pages of manga, so I’m not complaining. Highly recommend this app for anyone looking for a good manga reader!!
Great app but...
by Joke.Petree on 2019/12/22 22:58
I just downloaded the app and it’s great for new chapter releases. The only disappointing thing is, is that they have no bookmarking system. I wish there was some way that you could have the series you are reading or want to read book marked. I don’t want to have missed a chapter because I don’t know whether or not it’s updated.
Decent
by C8914 on 2019/12/21 06:45
Has a good selection but even when you pay the subscription fee most manga is volume only which means you have to pay more to read them
Almost better than masturbating

Great app! Just wish they’d add the watch feature
by Aaron_CBK on 2019/12/16 04:46
Great app for reading and downloading all VIZ has to offer! I purchase several volumes and read when I find the time or download my purchases when I know I’ll be away from WiFi soon. I just wish they’d bring the watching anime aspect they have when going to the actual .com website to the app.
A very good manga app
by An excellent manga app on 2019/12/15 01:51
Has all my favorite titles
Just one thing
by Hector101 on 2019/12/12 05:48
I personally think you should be able to add certain mangas that you want to a library or list Similar to a watchlist on VRV or crunchy roll or Netflix. Like If you add it to your list you can go back to it whenever you want to read rather than having to search it up
Would have gotten 5
by ricardo duolingo on 2019/12/11 17:36
If this had Komi can’t communicate chapters it would be the greatest thing ever
U have to pay look somewhere else

There is other app out there boys
Love it
by Swaggie McGee on 2019/12/06 03:23
Great translations and high quality panels. Can’t ask for much more!
Great app but missing some functionality features
by sarcasm_lives on 2019/12/04 17:35
I love the app, it’s a great price to subscribe to the membership. Lots of options to read and it’s really easy to use. The only thing it’s missing is a saved or my favorites section. I’ve never used an manga or reading app in general that didn’t have some way to save my favorites. This one allows you to see downloads and purchases but downloads disappear after awhile so it’s kindve pointless. I find myself forgetting what chapter I was on or even what I’ve been reading (I tend to read several manga all at once). Please add a section for favorite/starred manga.
Great app, add a request button?
by don Remke on 2019/12/04 02:12
This app works great, havent had any issues with it except im reading the mangas too quickly. Would love to see a request button for different manga collections, or just add ultimate muscle since thats all i really wanted to request. Keep it up guys, appreciate your efforts

A good app to read manga!
by Lsgsltalytv. L canb on 2019/12/03 01:35
I have used this app a long time and love it. The only issue I have is that Shonenjump is no longer a physical mag.
This app is good
by ifjensisj on 2019/12/02 14:44
I used to complain about the ads but I realize there is a skip button so I’m more happy about this app it is a good app thank you
Decent and cheap
by Roc7414 on 2019/11/25 14:08
It’s a great app for manga but some stuff you can’t read unless you buy the volume. I really don’t like that because what am I paying for if it’s certain things I can’t read. If there is a premium version I don’t know about I’ll switch soon as I find out. I like the fact you download 100 chapters so you don’t have to kill ya data if you don’t have unlimited or WiFi.
Love it
by gjgfytgg on 2019/11/25 01:21
Very clean cut and well made

Garbage
by 🖤⚰️🖤⚰️🖤⚰️🖤 on 2019/11/05 14:03
I joined and paid for a shonen jump premium membership and still am not able to read any manga beyond the first 3 chapters and it says I have to join to read. Waste of money
Awesome App, my personal favorite
by EAMeza18 on 2019/11/05 04:04
I honestly think this is the best Manga ap out there.
Great App
by TheMightyPotatoMan on 2019/11/03 16:05
The app has a lot of Manga to read, and it’s just 1.99/mo. It’s great!
Amazing app for manga lovers
by Jorge Santiago Jr on 2019/11/03 03:45
A day doesn’t go by where I don’t use this app to read some chapters of my favorite or new manga. It’s a really easy to use and fun experience and they let you know when new chapters are expected, which is great for series like One Punch Man that are not weekly. I’d recommend this anyone, and 2$ a month is nothing when you compare it to how much I’d have to pay to buy all these volumes and shelve them.
demon slayer
by Hiissac on 2019/11/03 03:18
mad because there is missing demon slayer chapters :-|
Great tool fore reading manga but...
by RayanamiNGE on 2019/11/02 17:23
I enjoy the monthly subscription but I don’t like that some manga are only available for the first 70 chapters and then you have to pay, even if you’re subscribed.
Best out there
by isekai-3000 on 2019/10/30 01:11
In like they send notifications about new chapters and new manga yet I love how if ur a person who keeps up u do t have to pay
Absolutely marvelous...
by Laoansi on 2019/10/28 18:30
My only complaint would be the illusion that all the manga on the application becomes readable if you subscribe. But the reality is that only select mangas are available for mental consumption.
One piece
by Paco21561 on 2019/10/27 22:39
Just read the one piece lol
Great!
by JamesYIII on 2019/10/27 20:13

Love the Variety
by eDOGx1117 on 2019/10/27 01:43
dbz fan here. Like berserk. I like "Monster", a weird non-fict. German serial killer detective mystery. Good show for a no explosions and big boob girls errwhere normal anime episode, every episode is so exciting and creepy. I'm reviewing anime and not the app really..this app is good i guess. I aint no incel, hate that word. I'm popular and love manga, be proud to like this quality form of entertainment rather than the chinese filtered bs like avengers nowadays
Really enjoy this app
by carleshardees on 2019/10/26 16:24
Great app that works great and has no problems.
Anime App Review
by StrizzyLeo on 2019/10/25 23:07
I really like using Viz Media to keep up with my favorite anime magna it has a lot of options and it’s easy to find the specific anime your looking for would definitely recommend to more anime lovers to use.
Annoyed
by Cooliecal on 2019/10/25 15:16
I’ve been subscribed for a while now and for some of my favorite manga, like demon hunter, their chapters are not all there. The app would be good if all the chapters were there but ima get it this month to see it the chapters appear if not ima just unsubscribe this is so annoying
Not good
by juliusfalcon on 2019/10/21 17:01
Recently switched from android android and this is just pathetic on how buggy and slow this app is.
Great but could be more...
by Zeloskun on 2019/10/19 01:10
I’ve been using this app for a couple months now and overall it is good. I read the latest chapters of One Piece and MHA and, for anyone currently reading fan scans, the official Viz release is so much better and worth a couple days wait. The quality and translations are great; occasionally, a picture won’t load, but reloading the chapter takes care of the problem. My only real compliant is not really that but a wish for more! There’s so many great titles like Honey and Clover, Lucky Star, Pokemon Adventures...and none of them are available except for preview or individual purchase! I certainly can’t justify spending $7 or so on a digital manga copy (at that point, I’d just buy the physical if I really wanted it). It would be wonderful to have an all-inclusive manga ‘streaming’ service for all these titles beyond the Shounen Jump service (that would obviously cost more)...I would certainly pay for it! Until that hopefully happens though, I’ll keep enjoying my free weekly chapters.
Pretty good with subscription but could use improvements
by Jinsei888 on 2019/10/16 19:15
Works as expected with subscription but could really use a simple function like Favorites for series that Premium users want to subscribe to. It really feels like Premium users aren’t given much functional benefit other than unlocking old manga series
Great idea! Add sorting function?
by darkkitsune_RK on 2019/10/14 23:23
I just downloaded this and I’m excited about being able to read manga digitally! I only have so much space for physical manga, so digital is an awesome option. And an app makes it easy to read on the go! It does seem like only some titles are part of the subscription, and others you have to purchase the manga volumes to read them on the app. It would be nice if there was a sort function to sort out all of the titles we can read as part of the subscription.
Awesome app!
by Sydney Mitchell on 2019/10/13 01:34
The subscription is cheap and the selection is great!
Great selection
by LordBeautimus on 2019/10/09 19:42
Not all my favorite manga are on here but a lot are and I love the diverse and immense collection, clean and easily manageable.
Great!
by Schrodinger's Kat on 2019/10/09 02:26
I love using this app - you can read both free chapters and paid volumes, and have the option to download to your device or to read by internet (unlike another app), which is convenient. I recently had an issue with one purchase being unreadable; support responded and fixed the issue entirely in less than 24 hours. I’m very impressed! I’m so grateful to have this option to read up-to-date translated manga safely and legally!
Yep
by kkturf on 2019/10/08 04:56
Good quality chapters and the subscription is cheep and transfers to the Shonen jump viz app too. I can read all chapters on both apps. Rlly good!
The best app ever
by D_man2007 on 2019/10/05 20:03
This app is THE best but I think that they can add more free novels for the people that can not afford the membership
Why
by angel array on 2019/10/04 21:03

This is by far the best manga app I have tried so far!
Bleach
by nubby10 on 2019/09/30 09:39
I literally only downloaded this so I can pick up where Bleach on HULU left off. I have never watched any anime’s before, but my friend turned me on to Bleach by talking about all the fights and everything and from the first episode I was hooked.
🤨 Unlimited access?
by Island Life on 2019/09/29 18:58
Sooo, subscribers get “unlimited access” to manga. But only to manga that is available by the chapter rather than in a complete volume. This wouldn’t be a problem except a huge portion of the content is only available in volume form. This feels... sleazy. Definitely canceling my subscription since I have no desire to buy individual volumes of manga that aren’t included in the subscription. I was really excited about this service and now I’m just turned off 😒
Really good manga
by bennerds on 2019/09/28 06:26
I really enjoy reading the promised neverland
A SLIGHT SUGGESTION
by Catch22Bandsban on 2019/09/27 17:26
In the “continue reading” folder, please give us the option to erase series that we don’t want to follow up on. I’m tired of titles cluttering the selection of manga I AM reading. Like I read the first chapter of some and I didn’t find it interesting, but now it’s always just there. I hope you guys can fix this!! It’s driving me insane.
SJ is a Good value, except for one thing
by Nt345 on 2019/09/26 19:32
Access to read history/bookmarking per account. I read across multiple devices and wish that I can pick up where I finished off reading from another device.
Deleting downloads
by Peaceful Whale on 2019/09/25 10:54
I love the app, but deleting downloads really needs to be made a lot easier. As it stands it takes forever to go through deleting what you’ve downloaded.
Great Deal and Selection
by Sotoxxea on 2019/09/23 18:34
I love having all of this manga at my fingertips. I only wish there was a guided view/panel by panel viewing option when reading on a phone.
It’s great
by Adeniyi8541 on 2019/09/20 18:27
Not much to say. You can read manga on here lol
nice app

Best manga app ever
Some titles are on their website only
by claraoswald3 on 2019/09/18 19:25
I have the subscription service because I want to read Golden Kamuy, but the chapters for it aren’t available to read on the app, they’re only available on Viz’s/Shonen Jump’s ACTUAL websites... There are a lot of manga that you can only read by going on their sites. What’s the point of the app if not all of the available content that you’re paying for is listed?
Such a good deal
by nyxtaku on 2019/09/15 04:09
Most of the manga you will ever want to read for 2 dollars
Lame
by Gloopinator on 2019/09/15 02:25
Should be free
good
by Malakakshdbg on 2019/09/12 12:33
I bought the membership, and I like it and I’m allowed to read my favorite series, such as “One Piece” and “Bleach.” The only thing I don’t like is the fact that I’m only allowed to read 100 chapters each day. I feel like we should be able to read more chapters but I guess 100 is fine for now. Other than that, I haven’t experienced any glitches except some lag but it’s not bad and the app is working just fine for me.
I like

It’s...complicated
by Zinkangel537 on 2019/09/07 12:56
I’ve only had the app for a few days, and while I’m excited about being able to read certain manga, I’m kinda frustrated that all of them aren’t available to read without paying $7.00. I totally get that the manga artists need to be paid, and I’m down for that. However, if there could be some compromise that allowed people to read all content on the app for a higher price a month, I think that would be cool. Regardless, this app is still pretty great for the titles you can access and I’m thankful for it.

Wish I could favorite
by ScoringTundra5 on 2019/08/16 18:00
I enjoy being able to read most of what I like, although I don’t know why some aren’t free with membership. I would love if there was a favorite option just so I could sort what I like and what I’m reading
“My Library” should work for digital subscription
by FennelFox on 2019/08/07 05:39
The subscription is a great service and a great price, but there really should be a way to build a library of series you’re reading, such as in the existing My Library section. This section apparently is only for titles you’ve purchased or downloaded, but I’m paying for the Shonen Jump digital archive subscription and want the titles I’m reading collected in one place. This seems like a really basic function for an e-reader, so I hope it will be implemented soon.
I love it

Missing chapters
by glazy p on 2019/07/29 20:10
I just began paying a monthly fee for this app. I’m new to viz media, and I had high hopes for the service... but honestly it’s a let down. The manga I was reading is inexplicably missing chapters 61-129 and just randomly picks up again at chapter 130... why am I paying for this when I could just read free scans online?
FANTASTIC
by puzzles gaming on 2019/07/18 17:13
if you like reading manga then this app is perfect.there is all types of manga to read.
It’s just okay
by jonboyaz101 on 2019/07/16 03:56
I downloaded this app to read all my favorite mangas such as Boku No Hero Academia, The Promised Neverland, Naruto, Assassination Classroom, and more. I wanted to read Ouran High School Host Club since I heard that Haruhi and Tamaki got a happy end together. But you only got to preview all of the chapters/books. You didn’t get to read the entire thing. I even have a subscription to Viz/Shonen Jump. I was a little upset when I couldn’t read the entire thing. Other than that, I have no other complaints. The membership fee is very low priced; perfect for people on a tight budget, and they have a wide selection of manga to choose from. I use this app a lot. I’m just a little disappointed that not everything (even when purchasing/owning a membership) is not free.
Great app
by BigolEdawg on 2019/07/15 06:14
Overall I think that subscription and the app are pretty good. Some things I think should be mentioned is that the volumes are not free with a paid subscription. Although it doesn’t cost very much I think there should be an additional subscription that allows you to have access to both the chapters and volumes (at a higher price of course). Also, I have found some of the manga pages to be blurry. If I quit the app and retry sometimes it will fix. Other than that I think this is a pretty solid app.
Where has this app been my entire life?!
by rayvicos on 2018/11/07 20:00
TBH I don’t have much free time of my own (in my adult life) these days, not enough to even watch much TV either. Well, one day I was spending time with wifey and as she dozed off mid-day, the TV was on Adult Swim running a My Hero Academia marathon. As fate would have it, episode 1 started and I found my inner childhood dreams resurface. Reminiscent of when I too used to read and collect comics and early manga of Astroboy, wishing so hard to be able to fly and have an ability that would set me apart from everyone else. I would get lost in those paper pages. But to be able to obtain my literary fuel came at great costs as a child. Not just monetarily but also limitations to physically getting to the one comic store in town. Having then to overcome those two obstacles just to walk in and find, your issue is SOLD OUT!!! NOW ushering into the present day of 2018 and discovering the VIZ APP using my iPod... manga comics are larger than life! Every type of genre available and all at my fingertips. Resolution is crisp, no lag and best of all I’ve not been bombarded by any intrusive, annoying ads. Thank you VIZ! Thank you for making me dream again!
Great value, but glitchy and lacking in features
by Slkem on 2019/02/20 02:53
Last year I decided to subscribe to Shonen Jump to keep up with a series that wasn’t getting new episodes for a while. I was pleased with how much content I got for $20, and the app worked just fine. I was very excited for the new changes coming to Shonen Jump, since I’d be able to start some new series and save a lot of money instead of buying physical copies. After the update however, the app has turned into a buggy mess, especially on an iPad Air 2. It takes forever to load the home page, and often lags for a couple minutes when you first open it. Available chapters for subscribers load pretty slow, and sometimes require reloading the app. On top of all the bugs, there are still several VERY basic features missing. You should be able to see all of the chapters you’ve already read, even if you haven’t downloaded them. It’s annoying having to guess where you left off, especially in series upwards of 100 chapters. Having a list of manga you’re currently reading would be a great addition as well. The new Shonen Jump subscription is a great idea and an extremely good deal. This service has allowed me to start many new series that I now read regularly. These bugs and issues have put me off from spending more money in the app on manga volumes since it’s more annoying to use the app than buy a physical copy. I hope that the problems mentioned can be fixed soon, as I do love the content offered.
Legal, accessible, and streamlined!
by mari chan san on 2019/03/21 20:03
I’ve been using this app for a few years now, and I’m really impressed with the way it’s been improved over time—it used to take a long time to load after the revamp with the simulpubs for Shonen Jump becoming free, but now it’s much faster. It’s my preferred way to read manga, thanks to the seamless way I can turn my phone or iPad to landscape mode and stitch two pages together. My only suggestion would be to have some mature content available online also on mobile, through the native parental controls filter on the device, like how some shows on streaming apps get filtered off or on through that way. Totally understand if it can’t work that way though, it’s not a dealbreaker by any means because I’m still getting access to FREE, LEGAL manga that officially supports the creators!
Great but could be more...
by Zeloskun on 2019/10/19 01:10
I’ve been using this app for a couple months now and overall it is good. I read the latest chapters of One Piece and MHA and, for anyone currently reading fan scans, the official Viz release is so much better and worth a couple days wait. The quality and translations are great; occasionally, a picture won’t load, but reloading the chapter takes care of the problem. My only real compliant is not really that but a wish for more! There’s so many great titles like Honey and Clover, Lucky Star, Pokemon Adventures...and none of them are available except for preview or individual purchase! I certainly can’t justify spending $7 or so on a digital manga copy (at that point, I’d just buy the physical if I really wanted it). It would be wonderful to have an all-inclusive manga ‘streaming’ service for all these titles beyond the Shounen Jump service (that would obviously cost more)...I would certainly pay for it! Until that hopefully happens though, I’ll keep enjoying my free weekly chapters.
Read review first please!
by tranzelda on 2019/01/12 16:38
Only giving this app 2 stars because of how bad it runs, leaving the app to answer a phone call or to reply to a text message and coming back to the app will cause it to crash making no chapters available to read requiring you to close and load the app again anytime you want to leave it. I’m paying the monthly subscription to support the manga artists but I expect at least to have a functioning app that I’m paying for, the app is a great reader for manga and has a lot of chapters to read and releases new weekly chapters with high quality scans and has a very nice and friendly UI, my problem previously mentioned however is killing the app for me.
Major bugs fixed, still missing basic functions
by ruishigao on 2019/03/11 05:11
Ever since their last major update that made that app glitchy and unusable, I’ve been waiting for Viz to fix these issues. Finally, this latest release has done just that. I’m no longer experiencing any lag when reading manga. That being said, the app is still missing the most basic and absolutely necessary function for a manga reader: Some sort of queue that tracks what I’m reading as well as saves my place in each series. I’m reading multiple series with hundreds of chapters. I have to keep track of my place on an external website and it’s a real hassle. Also, for Shonen Jump subscribers, there should be a page that lists all series available for us to read. Or even some sort of icon on the list of all titles available that lets subscribers know that that title is available through their subscription.
So far so good except for one minor problem.
by ESHartley on 2019/01/09 00:30
For the price and selection available, it’s really quite a steal! Now I can read as much manga as I want quite comfortably! However, I’ve been encountering an annoying problem, specifically with the Promised Neverland. Every chapter has one-to-two pages replaced with pages from the previous chapter which means I’m constantly confused with what’s going on. Please fix this! I really love this manga and don’t want to resort to other sites to get the same experience.
It’s just okay
by jonboyaz101 on 2019/07/16 03:56
I downloaded this app to read all my favorite mangas such as Boku No Hero Academia, The Promised Neverland, Naruto, Assassination Classroom, and more. I wanted to read Ouran High School Host Club since I heard that Haruhi and Tamaki got a happy end together. But you only got to preview all of the chapters/books. You didn’t get to read the entire thing. I even have a subscription to Viz/Shonen Jump. I was a little upset when I couldn’t read the entire thing. Other than that, I have no other complaints. The membership fee is very low priced; perfect for people on a tight budget, and they have a wide selection of manga to choose from. I use this app a lot. I’m just a little disappointed that not everything (even when purchasing/owning a membership) is not free.
Recent changes not clear. Did you change this to make it worse?
by theoldguygamer on 2019/03/14 12:18
For several years I have been using VIZ Manga and I liked it very much. Recently, the app is experiencing lots of latency and having an iPad 3 so that does not explain things. However, while i saw in emails that changes were coming to Jump, at this time I cannot see any old jump chapters and the browse feature just is stuck. I would hate to delete it and reinstall since I have so much downloaded content. Also, what is up with only can have 100 chapters downloaded? What is the problem with more than 100 chapters? Seems like an unnecessary restriction. So the "improvements" have diminished my ability to use the app. I simply cannot use the app. darn.
Glitchy
by viasavannah on 2019/01/12 16:44
The app itself functioned better before the big update. Previously, loading times were quick, downloads rarely glitched, and the manga chapters loaded smoothly. Currently the app gets stuck trying to load the main page, it takes 15+ seconds to acknowledge downloads starting, and the manga chapters themselves have a tendency to get stuck turning pages (instead of smoothly switching from one page to the next, it will frequently be stuck with half of the first page and half the second, like it gets stuck mid page flip). Crashes are also more frequent than in earlier versions. The service the app provides is great, but the glitches in the recent big update make it frustrating.
Needs bookmarks
by RFilsk on 2019/02/20 07:08
The app runs extremely well for me and for $2/month it has everything I want to read, which is awesome. However, it doesn't have bookmarks or a similar feature that tells me which chapters I've read and lets me pick up where I left off (even without downloading the chapter for offline access), which is a necessary feature for a manga app. I want to support manga creators and pay for what I read, but without that functionality it's hard to recommend the app. That is the one thing this app needs to become the #1 manga app, but for now I will have to find another one. I hope bookmarks are implemented soon, because when they do I'll come rushing back to this one.
Pathetic.
by Loren G. on 2019/03/02 08:54
If you’re going to take all the “main stream manga” off of other platforms (that are free) you should make sure that your platform is just as good if not better, especially if you are GOING TO CHARGE FOR IT!! This is laggy, loading times are insane, the fact that you can batch download or delete is a joke, and I shouldn’t have to close out my app 20 times to get everything to semi work. Capping 100 chapters at a time is pretty lame too. Why can’t I download volumes at a time if I have the space allocated???? Get your stuff together because this is pathetic. Maybe you should have hired the people from Manga Rock to make an app for you. Or you should have made an agreement to let them keep certain manga and have to charge for them. I can’t believe this sorry excuse for an app hasn’t been fixed yet.
What I truly think about Viz
by Valkyrie2.0 on 2017/12/03 06:54
Compared to MangaRock where you can read a lot of free manga I’d have to give this app a two because it clearly advertises about free manga which they do have but not very many most manga they have you have to pay for it and that’s not okay unless you’re looking to support your manga artist directly then in most cases you can buy the hard copy at your local manga/anime shop but the quality of the mangas are pretty ill give them that but it’s 6 dollars a pop and when most people start reading I know they want to finish reading all the chapters that’s out so no I really recommend you guys don’t purchase it most of these reviews aren’t telling you what your truly looking for so I hope my review on this app helps
Great app but missing some functionality features
by sarcasm_lives on 2019/12/04 17:35
I love the app, it’s a great price to subscribe to the membership. Lots of options to read and it’s really easy to use. The only thing it’s missing is a saved or my favorites section. I’ve never used an manga or reading app in general that didn’t have some way to save my favorites. This one allows you to see downloads and purchases but downloads disappear after awhile so it’s kindve pointless. I find myself forgetting what chapter I was on or even what I’ve been reading (I tend to read several manga all at once). Please add a section for favorite/starred manga.
Good, but improvement is good!
by MoonFire-01 on 2019/05/23 12:48
Pros: Lots of free chapters of popular manga that are updated regularly. It’s great to support the mangaka! A wide selection of genres to choose from and even so older titles - Absolute Boyfriend, Alice 19th, etc. Ties in with the Shounen Jump app pretty well. I haven’t purchased any manga yet, so I can’t say about prices yet. Manga is good and full of the artist’s blood, sweat, and tears; it’s worth the cost. Cons: - Inadequate search: I’d like to be able to search based on genre, not just author/title. What if you only want to see the shoujo/jousei options? I don’t want to have to scroll through everything. - Bookmarking: There doesn’t seem to be a way to tag which series you’re reading or where you left off somewhere. These are two key features that mainly keep me from using the app. I hate to say it, but the Mangareader app UI and tools are far more user-friendly than this app. I am suggesting to maybe apply those features to this app in order to make it more appealing.
Great but Missing Quality of Life Features
by Pollymanic on 2019/03/31 14:21
Pages load well if you have decent WiFi or reception, everything looks good and it is nice to support the authors/artists I enjoy! The real bummer about this ap is the lack of bookmarking, no ability to make a favorites or tbr list, and no reading location sync across devices. Every time I switch from one device to the other I have to cross reference what I was reading and what chapter I was on. Sometimes I even have to do that within one device if I restart. Hard not to compare it with scanlation services with great library and sync support. Really frustrating in what is otherwise a great ap.
This app is sick
by Stroppy moon on 2018/07/13 12:52
I love reading Manga and one thing that instantly caught my attention when I started reading MHA was the overall quality of the dialogue. Whenever you go to those free Pirated sites the text just always feels mistranslated or just grammatically incorrect. Here you have the actual copy of the page and it is exactly like the physical copies you’d buy at the store. Everything about this app is fantastic and honestly if you are complaining about the price you probably spend more on fast food tbh.
Good,but Search features need a ton of work
by n00by1337 on 2019/05/27 21:58
2$ a month for Shonen Jump is a steal and the prices are great all around with a large selection of titles to choose from. However there are no genre sections,the authors names seem to be absent from certain titles (Why does searching Akira Toriyama not bring up Dr. Slump?),and a few larger titles (I.E the works of Rumiko Takahashi) are glaringly absent. That being said,it serves it's purpose of letting me read Viz Owned manga quite well so I can't complain. No frills but it works well enough.
Great!
by Schrodinger's Kat on 2019/10/09 02:26
I love using this app - you can read both free chapters and paid volumes, and have the option to download to your device or to read by internet (unlike another app), which is convenient. I recently had an issue with one purchase being unreadable; support responded and fixed the issue entirely in less than 24 hours. I’m very impressed! I’m so grateful to have this option to read up-to-date translated manga safely and legally!
Great app
by BigolEdawg on 2019/07/15 06:14
Overall I think that subscription and the app are pretty good. Some things I think should be mentioned is that the volumes are not free with a paid subscription. Although it doesn’t cost very much I think there should be an additional subscription that allows you to have access to both the chapters and volumes (at a higher price of course). Also, I have found some of the manga pages to be blurry. If I quit the app and retry sometimes it will fix. Other than that I think this is a pretty solid app.
Great idea! Add sorting function?
by darkkitsune_RK on 2019/10/14 23:23
I just downloaded this and I’m excited about being able to read manga digitally! I only have so much space for physical manga, so digital is an awesome option. And an app makes it easy to read on the go! It does seem like only some titles are part of the subscription, and others you have to purchase the manga volumes to read them on the app. It would be nice if there was a sort function to sort out all of the titles we can read as part of the subscription.
good
by Malakakshdbg on 2019/09/12 12:33
I bought the membership, and I like it and I’m allowed to read my favorite series, such as “One Piece” and “Bleach.” The only thing I don’t like is the fact that I’m only allowed to read 100 chapters each day. I feel like we should be able to read more chapters but I guess 100 is fine for now. Other than that, I haven’t experienced any glitches except some lag but it’s not bad and the app is working just fine for me.
The definitive way to read manga
by keksnlols on 2018/10/24 23:53
While the old fashioned way of collecting manga volumes was fun, it’s just much more convenient to be able to have it all in on place on my tablet. Speaking of which, it runs well on older hardware, in my case the iPad Mini 2. Really, the main thing that is a selling point for me is the screen size compared to the traditional TPB size. The extra space really helps the art pop in a way that you can’t do on paper.
Very slow and glitches for a paid app
by danni75204 on 2018/12/28 01:25
The content and layout are great, but the app often freezes or slows way down when scrolling or trying to actually read the manga. Viz, it should not be easier to read internet bootlegs than to navigate the manga chapters in your app. I am all about supporting the industry, but please fix this. I can easily download fanmade translations of then manga I am trying to read with less effort than trying to read through a single chapter in this app. I want to support the artists and enjoy this app. Squish the bugs!!
It’s...complicated
by Zinkangel537 on 2019/09/07 12:56
I’ve only had the app for a few days, and while I’m excited about being able to read certain manga, I’m kinda frustrated that all of them aren’t available to read without paying $7.00. I totally get that the manga artists need to be paid, and I’m down for that. However, if there could be some compromise that allowed people to read all content on the app for a higher price a month, I think that would be cool. Regardless, this app is still pretty great for the titles you can access and I’m thankful for it.
This is it.
by Miki Light on 2019/01/10 09:09
This is a way to support the mangaka. Better than buying the original Japanese volumes and paying for middlemen. Better than amateur translations and barely legible text. Unfortunately their free section is small and doesn’t offer the full series but it does the job. I would much rather watch ads and earn coins to buy the chapters than pay for it with my savings, something webtoons has the upper hand in. VIZ. STEP IT UP!
I paid for a subscription and still can’t read anything
by eliyas95 on 2019/05/05 05:12
Paid for the subscription but still cant read certain free manga. Sometimes it works and I’ll begin reading it then randomly it’ll go black and kick me out then will only show the most recent chapter. This happens often. The app is glitchy, you can book mark the free manga series so you can find it quicker. Lots of problems. Please fix!
So much manga to read!!!
by Blobert1747 on 2019/12/26 01:31
There’s so many different titles to choose from that it’s hard to stop reading. Only downside is you have to buy certain series by volume, but big series like One Piece and Naruto don’t encounter this, so it’s a win win. Would definitely buy certain volumes though. It’s a fair price for 100+ pages of manga, so I’m not complaining. Highly recommend this app for anyone looking for a good manga reader!!
Amazing app for manga lovers
by Jorge Santiago Jr on 2019/11/03 03:45
A day doesn’t go by where I don’t use this app to read some chapters of my favorite or new manga. It’s a really easy to use and fun experience and they let you know when new chapters are expected, which is great for series like One Punch Man that are not weekly. I’d recommend this anyone, and 2$ a month is nothing when you compare it to how much I’d have to pay to buy all these volumes and shelve them.
Nice!
by Wwjd0723 on 2019/06/28 03:22
Thanks viz for a good service, which is quite rare these days. Honestly the change from wsj to the current state of things seems to be for the better. I love having access to 1000's of manga chapters ready to go. Theres some things that could be added as nice features. Like a option to add titles to a quick access currently reading library (if you have this im not aware of it)
“My Library” should work for digital subscription
by FennelFox on 2019/08/07 05:39
The subscription is a great service and a great price, but there really should be a way to build a library of series you’re reading, such as in the existing My Library section. This section apparently is only for titles you’ve purchased or downloaded, but I’m paying for the Shonen Jump digital archive subscription and want the titles I’m reading collected in one place. This seems like a really basic function for an e-reader, so I hope it will be implemented soon.
It does what it says it does
by Cleocatra_123 on 2019/02/18 20:31
It’s pretty user friendly when it comes to actually reading manga, except I’m trying to sign up for the membership and when I click the button “only $1.99 a month” under the membership details section it doesn’t do anything. It worked once, but when my phone died while i was completing the transaction it canceled it and now the button is basically unresponsive. In my opinion it seems kind of stupid to make it so difficult for me to give you money.
Impossible to jump back in...
by Xristian9 on 2019/01/14 05:37
This app is pretty straightforward, but with a couple major failures. Every time I leave the app and come back in to what I was reading, the app would freeze or the page would show nothing. I would have to close out the app and find where I left off. On that note, it’s difficult to find where I left off, unless I remember the exact volume. This poses an issue when reading multiple series. The iOS app seems to not have a functional bookmarking feature. I would love if the app can keep track off where I left off.
I wish that they offered details on when you purchase
by PlayfulFeline on 2019/06/11 10:39
I’m not sure how many volumes I’ve bought this week and it’s not gonna come out of my money for a while due to iOS billing. Like for one iOS should just charge you when you do the thing. However for two I wish viz provided a section to tell me when I purchased each volume.
Nice app, numerous titles, but could be improved
by Dgryz on 2019/01/03 15:22
Great choice of manga here on an affordable monthly price. The app is pretty good too, but lacks the ability to bookmark series for future reading. What’s annoying too is that it doesn’t keep traces of what you are reading if you don’t dl itso you must browse through all the catalog to find your title again. Finally I encountered a bug: each time my iPad screens lock, the app goes black screen at unlock and needs to be rebooted
Good but could use some improvements
by Annoyed gamer on 2018/12/18 08:44
Pros: Just subscribed because for $1.99 you do get so much manga to read. It’s also a great way to support creators and get quality translations. The pages are also great looking and don’t look pixelated. Cons: The app itself is easy to navigate, but it’s hard to find manga that’s included as part of my subscription within the browse section. I clicked on 4-5 different series before I was able to actually locate one that was a part of the subscription. Please add a symbol or add another filter to just show what’s available in the subscription. Or have an option to hide the paid series. I would also like if you could bookmark a section in a chapter and be able to come back to it later. The loading times on front page take awhile as well as when you are looking at a series.
Great to have more manga but lacking some features
by Subliminalman on 2019/01/22 17:09
Really cool to have more manga to read but I do miss the weekly magazine. Some features I’d like to see that would improve the app is a favorites tab that I can add starred manga to so I can find them quickly. The other thing is having a way to tell which chapters I already read so I don’t have to keep tabs myself.
Good content, bad app
by AllyEncampment on 2019/02/05 23:10
For the price, this is an absurd deal. $2 a month to read tons of manga is awesome,but the app doesn't cooperate most of the time. When it works, it's flawless, but it's constantly lagging out so you'll get stuck on the same page or it won't load your list of downloaded chapters or even the store. I'd still recommend it since restarting the app to fix is pretty quick, and the amount of manga is amazing,but compared to something like Comixology, this app is garbage.
Great app
by Menedaus on 2018/01/22 07:44
Pros 1. Reasonably priced 2. downloadable purchases (I really love this as it means I can read when wi-fi isn’t available) 3. Official source 4. App runs great, haven’t had it crash in ages since it’s early days before it was fine tuned. 5. Devs actively read reviews and comments to improve their product Cons 1. While a person’s library can be filter for a given title, there isn’t an option to hide books in the library that are not currently downloaded. 2. Free previews are nice, and while one chapter is good enough to judge the artwork, it’s not enough to determine whether the writing and story will be enjoyable. 3. While I understand that publishers tend to specialized in certain genres and demographics, it would be nice to see a wider variety available.
User Experience!
by sugarbushsloot on 2019/03/26 01:25
Hello!, I just want to let Viz Media, or whoever is in charge — especially the user face developers and the others who have a hand in making reading the material(s) online super easy and enjoyable — know that I greatly appreciate how simple and inexpensive it is to read the content the company provides on their website and app! Thank you!
Fixed most of my problems!
by Daaaatttt bbbooooiiii on 2019/03/24 18:11
When I first reviewed this app it was sluggish, hard to navigate, and it didn’t remember what you were reading. That’s all fixed now! It’s still not perfect, I imagine it’d still be a bit difficult for new subscribers to tell what they get for free and what they’d have to pay for. The subscription is an absolute steal at $2 with this serviceable app, I highly recommend it. 4.5/5 stars.
great app
by shjwlqndndmsk on 2019/05/07 22:54
i just started reading the one piece manga on viz because i finished the anime up to the section i could get up to, now just have to wait until july for it to release wano arc episodes :) i haven’t really dug into this app fully, but from what i’ve done so far it’s perfect for reading english dubs of manga. super cheap for a monthly membership and it’s got easy UI.
What happened?
by KyuubiKhaos on 2019/01/29 18:57
I was excited for the overhaul of the Shonen Jump app and experience, but this latest major update has way more problems than anything! First of all, it’s laggy as hell. Loading takes forever even on a good connection, and just scrolling through the app is incredibly sluggish. If I do manage to start reading something, even that is slow and unresponsive at times. On top of which, this app has suddenly become a HUGE drain on the battery. I have no problem with continuing to be a paid subscriber to the service, but please fix this app.
This New Update Needs Work
by Gr8Wizard on 2019/01/01 20:28
The new updated version effectively doesn’t work on my phone. Everything runs slowly, new issues of WSJ won’t populate in my library forcing me to read through my laptop’s web browser, and everything is slow to load and unresponsive. I understand it’s a new iteration of the app and it’s also the holiday’s, so I’m willing to wait a little for the bugs to be worked out. But if the app stays in this state I’ll just delete it because it’s effectively unusable, and it’s a strict downgrade of the version I’ve been using for nearly five years.
Needs improvement badly
by Lykosgreen on 2020/01/10 04:11
There is no bookmark or favorites option which is annoying if you follow many series. Also when catching up to a manga it’s annoying going to the next chapter because you have to press a small read next chapter button. And when you are finished a volume when marathoning there is no next chapter button it’s just a thing that says buy volume so you have to exit out of the manga and scroll down to the next chapter you’re on.
More Manga and accessibility
by Elvenight on 2019/03/10 16:30
Figure I should write this review since of the new changes. You can read lots of Manga from Shonen Jump for free now. They’ve fixed the problems with it being slow on older devices and show where you last left off in your chapters. Definitely a great deal if you read a lot of Manga.
Love the Variety
by eDOGx1117 on 2019/10/27 01:43
dbz fan here. Like berserk. I like "Monster", a weird non-fict. German serial killer detective mystery. Good show for a no explosions and big boob girls errwhere normal anime episode, every episode is so exciting and creepy. I'm reviewing anime and not the app really..this app is good i guess. I aint no incel, hate that word. I'm popular and love manga, be proud to like this quality form of entertainment rather than the chinese filtered bs like avengers nowadays
Almost perfect
by SM50 on 2019/01/06 15:00
I love having dozens of manga downloaded so I can read what I want in the moment. For the high quality comics the prices are reasonable. Only thing I would like is an account option where the read comics are already deleted. I have trouble keeping up where I am in the series since there is no tracking to tell you what book/chapter you read last.
A SLIGHT SUGGESTION
by Catch22Bandsban on 2019/09/27 17:26
In the “continue reading” folder, please give us the option to erase series that we don’t want to follow up on. I’m tired of titles cluttering the selection of manga I AM reading. Like I read the first chapter of some and I didn’t find it interesting, but now it’s always just there. I hope you guys can fix this!! It’s driving me insane.

Not free even with membership
by Squidcandy on 2020/01/22 03:34
I don’t understand why I still have to pay $6.99 for the manga I want to read even though I’m a member. It makes no sense to me.
Good

Goof
I can’t read after subscribing?
by dinnairufarore on 2020/01/20 17:43
I’m paying for this service but I can’t read mangas like persona 5? What’s this? Microtransaction or DLC? My God, that's like Netflix charging extra to see their original shows. That's why they are successful and you don't.
Great

If you want online manga, get this NOW
by lazar g on 2020/01/12 15:08
Ok so I’ve been spending the past month trying to find legit online manga apps, but all of them were (probably) illegal, and had horrible translating. But this one is perfectly legit, and has an amazing variety! Although you do need a subscription to get most of the content, it is only $2 a month and worth it!
Great
by Low Orb on 2020/01/11 03:15
Amazing
Needs improvement badly
by Lykosgreen on 2020/01/10 04:11
There is no bookmark or favorites option which is annoying if you follow many series. Also when catching up to a manga it’s annoying going to the next chapter because you have to press a small read next chapter button. And when you are finished a volume when marathoning there is no next chapter button it’s just a thing that says buy volume so you have to exit out of the manga and scroll down to the next chapter you’re on.
Amazing app for manga

Best way to read manga
by Soccer Nerd on 2020/01/06 05:28
Awesome Extremely
Ok, missing basic stuff
by Person#223 on 2020/01/03 23:56
Some series are on the site, not the app, no filters available for search, can't favorite titles. Kind of a chore to use. If you have a membership, tracking down the titles it applies to is a real pain.
Helps with all my manga needs
by CharlieKaericher on 2020/01/02 23:24
The title pretty much says it all.
missing chapters
by hdjanssja on 2020/01/02 02:05
It’s good BUT THERES MISSING CHAPTERS OF DEMON SLAYER. I would have rated it about 4 stars if there wasn’t missing chapters.
Great App
by KazueVol on 2019/12/30 22:38
It’s my main app for reading manga but i pay 2 dollars a month which is a VERY GOOD DEAL
Not letting me get premium

Great service it just doesn’t let me purchase the premium
Buggy
by abajoba21 on 2019/12/28 00:34
Very inconsistent load rates of chapters. Have to close and reopen a chapter several times just to finish it.
Doesn’t make sense
by casey0607! on 2019/12/27 14:54
Don’t understand what’s apart of the membership and what isn’t.
So much manga to read!!!
by Blobert1747 on 2019/12/26 01:31
There’s so many different titles to choose from that it’s hard to stop reading. Only downside is you have to buy certain series by volume, but big series like One Piece and Naruto don’t encounter this, so it’s a win win. Would definitely buy certain volumes though. It’s a fair price for 100+ pages of manga, so I’m not complaining. Highly recommend this app for anyone looking for a good manga reader!!
Great app but...
by Joke.Petree on 2019/12/22 22:58
I just downloaded the app and it’s great for new chapter releases. The only disappointing thing is, is that they have no bookmarking system. I wish there was some way that you could have the series you are reading or want to read book marked. I don’t want to have missed a chapter because I don’t know whether or not it’s updated.
Decent
by C8914 on 2019/12/21 06:45
Has a good selection but even when you pay the subscription fee most manga is volume only which means you have to pay more to read them

Great app! Just wish they’d add the watch feature
by Aaron_CBK on 2019/12/16 04:46
Great app for reading and downloading all VIZ has to offer! I purchase several volumes and read when I find the time or download my purchases when I know I’ll be away from WiFi soon. I just wish they’d bring the watching anime aspect they have when going to the actual .com website to the app.
A very good manga app
by An excellent manga app on 2019/12/15 01:51
Has all my favorite titles
Just one thing
by Hector101 on 2019/12/12 05:48
I personally think you should be able to add certain mangas that you want to a library or list Similar to a watchlist on VRV or crunchy roll or Netflix. Like If you add it to your list you can go back to it whenever you want to read rather than having to search it up
Would have gotten 5
by ricardo duolingo on 2019/12/11 17:36
If this had Komi can’t communicate chapters it would be the greatest thing ever

Great app but missing some functionality features
by sarcasm_lives on 2019/12/04 17:35
I love the app, it’s a great price to subscribe to the membership. Lots of options to read and it’s really easy to use. The only thing it’s missing is a saved or my favorites section. I’ve never used an manga or reading app in general that didn’t have some way to save my favorites. This one allows you to see downloads and purchases but downloads disappear after awhile so it’s kindve pointless. I find myself forgetting what chapter I was on or even what I’ve been reading (I tend to read several manga all at once). Please add a section for favorite/starred manga.
Great app, add a request button?
by don Remke on 2019/12/04 02:12
This app works great, havent had any issues with it except im reading the mangas too quickly. Would love to see a request button for different manga collections, or just add ultimate muscle since thats all i really wanted to request. Keep it up guys, appreciate your efforts

I have used this app a long time and love it. The only issue I have is that Shonenjump is no longer a physical mag.
This app is good
by ifjensisj on 2019/12/02 14:44
I used to complain about the ads but I realize there is a skip button so I’m more happy about this app it is a good app thank you
Decent and cheap
by Roc7414 on 2019/11/25 14:08
It’s a great app for manga but some stuff you can’t read unless you buy the volume. I really don’t like that because what am I paying for if it’s certain things I can’t read. If there is a premium version I don’t know about I’ll switch soon as I find out. I like the fact you download 100 chapters so you don’t have to kill ya data if you don’t have unlimited or WiFi.
Love it

I joined and paid for a shonen jump premium membership and still am not able to read any manga beyond the first 3 chapters and it says I have to join to read. Waste of money
Awesome App, my personal favorite
by EAMeza18 on 2019/11/05 04:04
I honestly think this is the best Manga ap out there.
Great App
by TheMightyPotatoMan on 2019/11/03 16:05
The app has a lot of Manga to read, and it’s just 1.99/mo. It’s great!
Amazing app for manga lovers
by Jorge Santiago Jr on 2019/11/03 03:45
A day doesn’t go by where I don’t use this app to read some chapters of my favorite or new manga. It’s a really easy to use and fun experience and they let you know when new chapters are expected, which is great for series like One Punch Man that are not weekly. I’d recommend this anyone, and 2$ a month is nothing when you compare it to how much I’d have to pay to buy all these volumes and shelve them.
demon slayer
by Hiissac on 2019/11/03 03:18
mad because there is missing demon slayer chapters :-|
Great tool fore reading manga but...
by RayanamiNGE on 2019/11/02 17:23
I enjoy the monthly subscription but I don’t like that some manga are only available for the first 70 chapters and then you have to pay, even if you’re subscribed.
Best out there
by isekai-3000 on 2019/10/30 01:11
In like they send notifications about new chapters and new manga yet I love how if ur a person who keeps up u do t have to pay
Absolutely marvelous...
by Laoansi on 2019/10/28 18:30
My only complaint would be the illusion that all the manga on the application becomes readable if you subscribe. But the reality is that only select mangas are available for mental consumption.
One piece

Love the Variety
by eDOGx1117 on 2019/10/27 01:43
dbz fan here. Like berserk. I like "Monster", a weird non-fict. German serial killer detective mystery. Good show for a no explosions and big boob girls errwhere normal anime episode, every episode is so exciting and creepy. I'm reviewing anime and not the app really..this app is good i guess. I aint no incel, hate that word. I'm popular and love manga, be proud to like this quality form of entertainment rather than the chinese filtered bs like avengers nowadays
Really enjoy this app

Anime App Review
by StrizzyLeo on 2019/10/25 23:07
I really like using Viz Media to keep up with my favorite anime magna it has a lot of options and it’s easy to find the specific anime your looking for would definitely recommend to more anime lovers to use.
Annoyed
by Cooliecal on 2019/10/25 15:16
I’ve been subscribed for a while now and for some of my favorite manga, like demon hunter, their chapters are not all there. The app would be good if all the chapters were there but ima get it this month to see it the chapters appear if not ima just unsubscribe this is so annoying
Not good
by juliusfalcon on 2019/10/21 17:01
Recently switched from android android and this is just pathetic on how buggy and slow this app is.
Great but could be more...
by Zeloskun on 2019/10/19 01:10
I’ve been using this app for a couple months now and overall it is good. I read the latest chapters of One Piece and MHA and, for anyone currently reading fan scans, the official Viz release is so much better and worth a couple days wait. The quality and translations are great; occasionally, a picture won’t load, but reloading the chapter takes care of the problem. My only real compliant is not really that but a wish for more! There’s so many great titles like Honey and Clover, Lucky Star, Pokemon Adventures...and none of them are available except for preview or individual purchase! I certainly can’t justify spending $7 or so on a digital manga copy (at that point, I’d just buy the physical if I really wanted it). It would be wonderful to have an all-inclusive manga ‘streaming’ service for all these titles beyond the Shounen Jump service (that would obviously cost more)...I would certainly pay for it! Until that hopefully happens though, I’ll keep enjoying my free weekly chapters.
Pretty good with subscription but could use improvements
by Jinsei888 on 2019/10/16 19:15
Works as expected with subscription but could really use a simple function like Favorites for series that Premium users want to subscribe to. It really feels like Premium users aren’t given much functional benefit other than unlocking old manga series
Great idea! Add sorting function?
by darkkitsune_RK on 2019/10/14 23:23
I just downloaded this and I’m excited about being able to read manga digitally! I only have so much space for physical manga, so digital is an awesome option. And an app makes it easy to read on the go! It does seem like only some titles are part of the subscription, and others you have to purchase the manga volumes to read them on the app. It would be nice if there was a sort function to sort out all of the titles we can read as part of the subscription.
Awesome app!
by Sydney Mitchell on 2019/10/13 01:34
The subscription is cheap and the selection is great!
Great selection
by LordBeautimus on 2019/10/09 19:42
Not all my favorite manga are on here but a lot are and I love the diverse and immense collection, clean and easily manageable.
Great!
by Schrodinger's Kat on 2019/10/09 02:26
I love using this app - you can read both free chapters and paid volumes, and have the option to download to your device or to read by internet (unlike another app), which is convenient. I recently had an issue with one purchase being unreadable; support responded and fixed the issue entirely in less than 24 hours. I’m very impressed! I’m so grateful to have this option to read up-to-date translated manga safely and legally!
Yep
by kkturf on 2019/10/08 04:56
Good quality chapters and the subscription is cheep and transfers to the Shonen jump viz app too. I can read all chapters on both apps. Rlly good!
The best app ever
by D_man2007 on 2019/10/05 20:03
This app is THE best but I think that they can add more free novels for the people that can not afford the membership
Why

Bleach
by nubby10 on 2019/09/30 09:39
I literally only downloaded this so I can pick up where Bleach on HULU left off. I have never watched any anime’s before, but my friend turned me on to Bleach by talking about all the fights and everything and from the first episode I was hooked.
🤨 Unlimited access?
by Island Life on 2019/09/29 18:58
Sooo, subscribers get “unlimited access” to manga. But only to manga that is available by the chapter rather than in a complete volume. This wouldn’t be a problem except a huge portion of the content is only available in volume form. This feels... sleazy. Definitely canceling my subscription since I have no desire to buy individual volumes of manga that aren’t included in the subscription. I was really excited about this service and now I’m just turned off 😒
Really good manga
by bennerds on 2019/09/28 06:26
I really enjoy reading the promised neverland
A SLIGHT SUGGESTION
by Catch22Bandsban on 2019/09/27 17:26
In the “continue reading” folder, please give us the option to erase series that we don’t want to follow up on. I’m tired of titles cluttering the selection of manga I AM reading. Like I read the first chapter of some and I didn’t find it interesting, but now it’s always just there. I hope you guys can fix this!! It’s driving me insane.
SJ is a Good value, except for one thing
by Nt345 on 2019/09/26 19:32
Access to read history/bookmarking per account. I read across multiple devices and wish that I can pick up where I finished off reading from another device.
Deleting downloads
by Peaceful Whale on 2019/09/25 10:54
I love the app, but deleting downloads really needs to be made a lot easier. As it stands it takes forever to go through deleting what you’ve downloaded.
Great Deal and Selection
by Sotoxxea on 2019/09/23 18:34
I love having all of this manga at my fingertips. I only wish there was a guided view/panel by panel viewing option when reading on a phone.
It’s great
by Adeniyi8541 on 2019/09/20 18:27
Not much to say. You can read manga on here lol

Best manga app ever
Some titles are on their website only
by claraoswald3 on 2019/09/18 19:25
I have the subscription service because I want to read Golden Kamuy, but the chapters for it aren’t available to read on the app, they’re only available on Viz’s/Shonen Jump’s ACTUAL websites... There are a lot of manga that you can only read by going on their sites. What’s the point of the app if not all of the available content that you’re paying for is listed?
Such a good deal
by nyxtaku on 2019/09/15 04:09
Most of the manga you will ever want to read for 2 dollars
Lame
by Gloopinator on 2019/09/15 02:25
Should be free
good
by Malakakshdbg on 2019/09/12 12:33
I bought the membership, and I like it and I’m allowed to read my favorite series, such as “One Piece” and “Bleach.” The only thing I don’t like is the fact that I’m only allowed to read 100 chapters each day. I feel like we should be able to read more chapters but I guess 100 is fine for now. Other than that, I haven’t experienced any glitches except some lag but it’s not bad and the app is working just fine for me.

It’s...complicated
by Zinkangel537 on 2019/09/07 12:56
I’ve only had the app for a few days, and while I’m excited about being able to read certain manga, I’m kinda frustrated that all of them aren’t available to read without paying $7.00. I totally get that the manga artists need to be paid, and I’m down for that. However, if there could be some compromise that allowed people to read all content on the app for a higher price a month, I think that would be cool. Regardless, this app is still pretty great for the titles you can access and I’m thankful for it.

by ScoringTundra5 on 2019/08/16 18:00
I enjoy being able to read most of what I like, although I don’t know why some aren’t free with membership. I would love if there was a favorite option just so I could sort what I like and what I’m reading
“My Library” should work for digital subscription
by FennelFox on 2019/08/07 05:39
The subscription is a great service and a great price, but there really should be a way to build a library of series you’re reading, such as in the existing My Library section. This section apparently is only for titles you’ve purchased or downloaded, but I’m paying for the Shonen Jump digital archive subscription and want the titles I’m reading collected in one place. This seems like a really basic function for an e-reader, so I hope it will be implemented soon.
I love it

Missing chapters
by glazy p on 2019/07/29 20:10
I just began paying a monthly fee for this app. I’m new to viz media, and I had high hopes for the service... but honestly it’s a let down. The manga I was reading is inexplicably missing chapters 61-129 and just randomly picks up again at chapter 130... why am I paying for this when I could just read free scans online?
FANTASTIC
by puzzles gaming on 2019/07/18 17:13
if you like reading manga then this app is perfect.there is all types of manga to read.
It’s just okay
by jonboyaz101 on 2019/07/16 03:56
I downloaded this app to read all my favorite mangas such as Boku No Hero Academia, The Promised Neverland, Naruto, Assassination Classroom, and more. I wanted to read Ouran High School Host Club since I heard that Haruhi and Tamaki got a happy end together. But you only got to preview all of the chapters/books. You didn’t get to read the entire thing. I even have a subscription to Viz/Shonen Jump. I was a little upset when I couldn’t read the entire thing. Other than that, I have no other complaints. The membership fee is very low priced; perfect for people on a tight budget, and they have a wide selection of manga to choose from. I use this app a lot. I’m just a little disappointed that not everything (even when purchasing/owning a membership) is not free.
Great app
by BigolEdawg on 2019/07/15 06:14
Overall I think that subscription and the app are pretty good. Some things I think should be mentioned is that the volumes are not free with a paid subscription. Although it doesn’t cost very much I think there should be an additional subscription that allows you to have access to both the chapters and volumes (at a higher price of course). Also, I have found some of the manga pages to be blurry. If I quit the app and retry sometimes it will fix. Other than that I think this is a pretty solid app.
Where has this app been my entire life?!
by rayvicos on 2018/11/07 20:00
TBH I don’t have much free time of my own (in my adult life) these days, not enough to even watch much TV either. Well, one day I was spending time with wifey and as she dozed off mid-day, the TV was on Adult Swim running a My Hero Academia marathon. As fate would have it, episode 1 started and I found my inner childhood dreams resurface. Reminiscent of when I too used to read and collect comics and early manga of Astroboy, wishing so hard to be able to fly and have an ability that would set me apart from everyone else. I would get lost in those paper pages. But to be able to obtain my literary fuel came at great costs as a child. Not just monetarily but also limitations to physically getting to the one comic store in town. Having then to overcome those two obstacles just to walk in and find, your issue is SOLD OUT!!! NOW ushering into the present day of 2018 and discovering the VIZ APP using my iPod... manga comics are larger than life! Every type of genre available and all at my fingertips. Resolution is crisp, no lag and best of all I’ve not been bombarded by any intrusive, annoying ads. Thank you VIZ! Thank you for making me dream again!
Great value, but glitchy and lacking in features
by Slkem on 2019/02/20 02:53
Last year I decided to subscribe to Shonen Jump to keep up with a series that wasn’t getting new episodes for a while. I was pleased with how much content I got for $20, and the app worked just fine. I was very excited for the new changes coming to Shonen Jump, since I’d be able to start some new series and save a lot of money instead of buying physical copies. After the update however, the app has turned into a buggy mess, especially on an iPad Air 2. It takes forever to load the home page, and often lags for a couple minutes when you first open it. Available chapters for subscribers load pretty slow, and sometimes require reloading the app. On top of all the bugs, there are still several VERY basic features missing. You should be able to see all of the chapters you’ve already read, even if you haven’t downloaded them. It’s annoying having to guess where you left off, especially in series upwards of 100 chapters. Having a list of manga you’re currently reading would be a great addition as well. The new Shonen Jump subscription is a great idea and an extremely good deal. This service has allowed me to start many new series that I now read regularly. These bugs and issues have put me off from spending more money in the app on manga volumes since it’s more annoying to use the app than buy a physical copy. I hope that the problems mentioned can be fixed soon, as I do love the content offered.
Legal, accessible, and streamlined!
by mari chan san on 2019/03/21 20:03
I’ve been using this app for a few years now, and I’m really impressed with the way it’s been improved over time—it used to take a long time to load after the revamp with the simulpubs for Shonen Jump becoming free, but now it’s much faster. It’s my preferred way to read manga, thanks to the seamless way I can turn my phone or iPad to landscape mode and stitch two pages together. My only suggestion would be to have some mature content available online also on mobile, through the native parental controls filter on the device, like how some shows on streaming apps get filtered off or on through that way. Totally understand if it can’t work that way though, it’s not a dealbreaker by any means because I’m still getting access to FREE, LEGAL manga that officially supports the creators!
Great but could be more...
by Zeloskun on 2019/10/19 01:10
I’ve been using this app for a couple months now and overall it is good. I read the latest chapters of One Piece and MHA and, for anyone currently reading fan scans, the official Viz release is so much better and worth a couple days wait. The quality and translations are great; occasionally, a picture won’t load, but reloading the chapter takes care of the problem. My only real compliant is not really that but a wish for more! There’s so many great titles like Honey and Clover, Lucky Star, Pokemon Adventures...and none of them are available except for preview or individual purchase! I certainly can’t justify spending $7 or so on a digital manga copy (at that point, I’d just buy the physical if I really wanted it). It would be wonderful to have an all-inclusive manga ‘streaming’ service for all these titles beyond the Shounen Jump service (that would obviously cost more)...I would certainly pay for it! Until that hopefully happens though, I’ll keep enjoying my free weekly chapters.
Read review first please!
by tranzelda on 2019/01/12 16:38
Only giving this app 2 stars because of how bad it runs, leaving the app to answer a phone call or to reply to a text message and coming back to the app will cause it to crash making no chapters available to read requiring you to close and load the app again anytime you want to leave it. I’m paying the monthly subscription to support the manga artists but I expect at least to have a functioning app that I’m paying for, the app is a great reader for manga and has a lot of chapters to read and releases new weekly chapters with high quality scans and has a very nice and friendly UI, my problem previously mentioned however is killing the app for me.
Major bugs fixed, still missing basic functions
by ruishigao on 2019/03/11 05:11
Ever since their last major update that made that app glitchy and unusable, I’ve been waiting for Viz to fix these issues. Finally, this latest release has done just that. I’m no longer experiencing any lag when reading manga. That being said, the app is still missing the most basic and absolutely necessary function for a manga reader: Some sort of queue that tracks what I’m reading as well as saves my place in each series. I’m reading multiple series with hundreds of chapters. I have to keep track of my place on an external website and it’s a real hassle. Also, for Shonen Jump subscribers, there should be a page that lists all series available for us to read. Or even some sort of icon on the list of all titles available that lets subscribers know that that title is available through their subscription.
So far so good except for one minor problem.
by ESHartley on 2019/01/09 00:30
For the price and selection available, it’s really quite a steal! Now I can read as much manga as I want quite comfortably! However, I’ve been encountering an annoying problem, specifically with the Promised Neverland. Every chapter has one-to-two pages replaced with pages from the previous chapter which means I’m constantly confused with what’s going on. Please fix this! I really love this manga and don’t want to resort to other sites to get the same experience.
It’s just okay
by jonboyaz101 on 2019/07/16 03:56
I downloaded this app to read all my favorite mangas such as Boku No Hero Academia, The Promised Neverland, Naruto, Assassination Classroom, and more. I wanted to read Ouran High School Host Club since I heard that Haruhi and Tamaki got a happy end together. But you only got to preview all of the chapters/books. You didn’t get to read the entire thing. I even have a subscription to Viz/Shonen Jump. I was a little upset when I couldn’t read the entire thing. Other than that, I have no other complaints. The membership fee is very low priced; perfect for people on a tight budget, and they have a wide selection of manga to choose from. I use this app a lot. I’m just a little disappointed that not everything (even when purchasing/owning a membership) is not free.
Recent changes not clear. Did you change this to make it worse?
by theoldguygamer on 2019/03/14 12:18
For several years I have been using VIZ Manga and I liked it very much. Recently, the app is experiencing lots of latency and having an iPad 3 so that does not explain things. However, while i saw in emails that changes were coming to Jump, at this time I cannot see any old jump chapters and the browse feature just is stuck. I would hate to delete it and reinstall since I have so much downloaded content. Also, what is up with only can have 100 chapters downloaded? What is the problem with more than 100 chapters? Seems like an unnecessary restriction. So the "improvements" have diminished my ability to use the app. I simply cannot use the app. darn.
Glitchy
by viasavannah on 2019/01/12 16:44
The app itself functioned better before the big update. Previously, loading times were quick, downloads rarely glitched, and the manga chapters loaded smoothly. Currently the app gets stuck trying to load the main page, it takes 15+ seconds to acknowledge downloads starting, and the manga chapters themselves have a tendency to get stuck turning pages (instead of smoothly switching from one page to the next, it will frequently be stuck with half of the first page and half the second, like it gets stuck mid page flip). Crashes are also more frequent than in earlier versions. The service the app provides is great, but the glitches in the recent big update make it frustrating.
Needs bookmarks
by RFilsk on 2019/02/20 07:08
The app runs extremely well for me and for $2/month it has everything I want to read, which is awesome. However, it doesn't have bookmarks or a similar feature that tells me which chapters I've read and lets me pick up where I left off (even without downloading the chapter for offline access), which is a necessary feature for a manga app. I want to support manga creators and pay for what I read, but without that functionality it's hard to recommend the app. That is the one thing this app needs to become the #1 manga app, but for now I will have to find another one. I hope bookmarks are implemented soon, because when they do I'll come rushing back to this one.
Pathetic.
by Loren G. on 2019/03/02 08:54
If you’re going to take all the “main stream manga” off of other platforms (that are free) you should make sure that your platform is just as good if not better, especially if you are GOING TO CHARGE FOR IT!! This is laggy, loading times are insane, the fact that you can batch download or delete is a joke, and I shouldn’t have to close out my app 20 times to get everything to semi work. Capping 100 chapters at a time is pretty lame too. Why can’t I download volumes at a time if I have the space allocated???? Get your stuff together because this is pathetic. Maybe you should have hired the people from Manga Rock to make an app for you. Or you should have made an agreement to let them keep certain manga and have to charge for them. I can’t believe this sorry excuse for an app hasn’t been fixed yet.
What I truly think about Viz
by Valkyrie2.0 on 2017/12/03 06:54
Compared to MangaRock where you can read a lot of free manga I’d have to give this app a two because it clearly advertises about free manga which they do have but not very many most manga they have you have to pay for it and that’s not okay unless you’re looking to support your manga artist directly then in most cases you can buy the hard copy at your local manga/anime shop but the quality of the mangas are pretty ill give them that but it’s 6 dollars a pop and when most people start reading I know they want to finish reading all the chapters that’s out so no I really recommend you guys don’t purchase it most of these reviews aren’t telling you what your truly looking for so I hope my review on this app helps
Great app but missing some functionality features
by sarcasm_lives on 2019/12/04 17:35
I love the app, it’s a great price to subscribe to the membership. Lots of options to read and it’s really easy to use. The only thing it’s missing is a saved or my favorites section. I’ve never used an manga or reading app in general that didn’t have some way to save my favorites. This one allows you to see downloads and purchases but downloads disappear after awhile so it’s kindve pointless. I find myself forgetting what chapter I was on or even what I’ve been reading (I tend to read several manga all at once). Please add a section for favorite/starred manga.
Good, but improvement is good!
by MoonFire-01 on 2019/05/23 12:48
Pros: Lots of free chapters of popular manga that are updated regularly. It’s great to support the mangaka! A wide selection of genres to choose from and even so older titles - Absolute Boyfriend, Alice 19th, etc. Ties in with the Shounen Jump app pretty well. I haven’t purchased any manga yet, so I can’t say about prices yet. Manga is good and full of the artist’s blood, sweat, and tears; it’s worth the cost. Cons: - Inadequate search: I’d like to be able to search based on genre, not just author/title. What if you only want to see the shoujo/jousei options? I don’t want to have to scroll through everything. - Bookmarking: There doesn’t seem to be a way to tag which series you’re reading or where you left off somewhere. These are two key features that mainly keep me from using the app. I hate to say it, but the Mangareader app UI and tools are far more user-friendly than this app. I am suggesting to maybe apply those features to this app in order to make it more appealing.
Great but Missing Quality of Life Features
by Pollymanic on 2019/03/31 14:21
Pages load well if you have decent WiFi or reception, everything looks good and it is nice to support the authors/artists I enjoy! The real bummer about this ap is the lack of bookmarking, no ability to make a favorites or tbr list, and no reading location sync across devices. Every time I switch from one device to the other I have to cross reference what I was reading and what chapter I was on. Sometimes I even have to do that within one device if I restart. Hard not to compare it with scanlation services with great library and sync support. Really frustrating in what is otherwise a great ap.
This app is sick
by Stroppy moon on 2018/07/13 12:52
I love reading Manga and one thing that instantly caught my attention when I started reading MHA was the overall quality of the dialogue. Whenever you go to those free Pirated sites the text just always feels mistranslated or just grammatically incorrect. Here you have the actual copy of the page and it is exactly like the physical copies you’d buy at the store. Everything about this app is fantastic and honestly if you are complaining about the price you probably spend more on fast food tbh.
Good,but Search features need a ton of work
by n00by1337 on 2019/05/27 21:58
2$ a month for Shonen Jump is a steal and the prices are great all around with a large selection of titles to choose from. However there are no genre sections,the authors names seem to be absent from certain titles (Why does searching Akira Toriyama not bring up Dr. Slump?),and a few larger titles (I.E the works of Rumiko Takahashi) are glaringly absent. That being said,it serves it's purpose of letting me read Viz Owned manga quite well so I can't complain. No frills but it works well enough.
Great!
by Schrodinger's Kat on 2019/10/09 02:26
I love using this app - you can read both free chapters and paid volumes, and have the option to download to your device or to read by internet (unlike another app), which is convenient. I recently had an issue with one purchase being unreadable; support responded and fixed the issue entirely in less than 24 hours. I’m very impressed! I’m so grateful to have this option to read up-to-date translated manga safely and legally!
Great app
by BigolEdawg on 2019/07/15 06:14
Overall I think that subscription and the app are pretty good. Some things I think should be mentioned is that the volumes are not free with a paid subscription. Although it doesn’t cost very much I think there should be an additional subscription that allows you to have access to both the chapters and volumes (at a higher price of course). Also, I have found some of the manga pages to be blurry. If I quit the app and retry sometimes it will fix. Other than that I think this is a pretty solid app.
Great idea! Add sorting function?
by darkkitsune_RK on 2019/10/14 23:23
I just downloaded this and I’m excited about being able to read manga digitally! I only have so much space for physical manga, so digital is an awesome option. And an app makes it easy to read on the go! It does seem like only some titles are part of the subscription, and others you have to purchase the manga volumes to read them on the app. It would be nice if there was a sort function to sort out all of the titles we can read as part of the subscription.
good
by Malakakshdbg on 2019/09/12 12:33
I bought the membership, and I like it and I’m allowed to read my favorite series, such as “One Piece” and “Bleach.” The only thing I don’t like is the fact that I’m only allowed to read 100 chapters each day. I feel like we should be able to read more chapters but I guess 100 is fine for now. Other than that, I haven’t experienced any glitches except some lag but it’s not bad and the app is working just fine for me.
The definitive way to read manga
by keksnlols on 2018/10/24 23:53
While the old fashioned way of collecting manga volumes was fun, it’s just much more convenient to be able to have it all in on place on my tablet. Speaking of which, it runs well on older hardware, in my case the iPad Mini 2. Really, the main thing that is a selling point for me is the screen size compared to the traditional TPB size. The extra space really helps the art pop in a way that you can’t do on paper.
Very slow and glitches for a paid app
by danni75204 on 2018/12/28 01:25
The content and layout are great, but the app often freezes or slows way down when scrolling or trying to actually read the manga. Viz, it should not be easier to read internet bootlegs than to navigate the manga chapters in your app. I am all about supporting the industry, but please fix this. I can easily download fanmade translations of then manga I am trying to read with less effort than trying to read through a single chapter in this app. I want to support the artists and enjoy this app. Squish the bugs!!
It’s...complicated
by Zinkangel537 on 2019/09/07 12:56
I’ve only had the app for a few days, and while I’m excited about being able to read certain manga, I’m kinda frustrated that all of them aren’t available to read without paying $7.00. I totally get that the manga artists need to be paid, and I’m down for that. However, if there could be some compromise that allowed people to read all content on the app for a higher price a month, I think that would be cool. Regardless, this app is still pretty great for the titles you can access and I’m thankful for it.
This is it.
by Miki Light on 2019/01/10 09:09
This is a way to support the mangaka. Better than buying the original Japanese volumes and paying for middlemen. Better than amateur translations and barely legible text. Unfortunately their free section is small and doesn’t offer the full series but it does the job. I would much rather watch ads and earn coins to buy the chapters than pay for it with my savings, something webtoons has the upper hand in. VIZ. STEP IT UP!
I paid for a subscription and still can’t read anything
by eliyas95 on 2019/05/05 05:12
Paid for the subscription but still cant read certain free manga. Sometimes it works and I’ll begin reading it then randomly it’ll go black and kick me out then will only show the most recent chapter. This happens often. The app is glitchy, you can book mark the free manga series so you can find it quicker. Lots of problems. Please fix!
So much manga to read!!!
by Blobert1747 on 2019/12/26 01:31
There’s so many different titles to choose from that it’s hard to stop reading. Only downside is you have to buy certain series by volume, but big series like One Piece and Naruto don’t encounter this, so it’s a win win. Would definitely buy certain volumes though. It’s a fair price for 100+ pages of manga, so I’m not complaining. Highly recommend this app for anyone looking for a good manga reader!!
Amazing app for manga lovers
by Jorge Santiago Jr on 2019/11/03 03:45
A day doesn’t go by where I don’t use this app to read some chapters of my favorite or new manga. It’s a really easy to use and fun experience and they let you know when new chapters are expected, which is great for series like One Punch Man that are not weekly. I’d recommend this anyone, and 2$ a month is nothing when you compare it to how much I’d have to pay to buy all these volumes and shelve them.
Nice!
by Wwjd0723 on 2019/06/28 03:22
Thanks viz for a good service, which is quite rare these days. Honestly the change from wsj to the current state of things seems to be for the better. I love having access to 1000's of manga chapters ready to go. Theres some things that could be added as nice features. Like a option to add titles to a quick access currently reading library (if you have this im not aware of it)
“My Library” should work for digital subscription
by FennelFox on 2019/08/07 05:39
The subscription is a great service and a great price, but there really should be a way to build a library of series you’re reading, such as in the existing My Library section. This section apparently is only for titles you’ve purchased or downloaded, but I’m paying for the Shonen Jump digital archive subscription and want the titles I’m reading collected in one place. This seems like a really basic function for an e-reader, so I hope it will be implemented soon.
It does what it says it does
by Cleocatra_123 on 2019/02/18 20:31
It’s pretty user friendly when it comes to actually reading manga, except I’m trying to sign up for the membership and when I click the button “only $1.99 a month” under the membership details section it doesn’t do anything. It worked once, but when my phone died while i was completing the transaction it canceled it and now the button is basically unresponsive. In my opinion it seems kind of stupid to make it so difficult for me to give you money.
Impossible to jump back in...
by Xristian9 on 2019/01/14 05:37
This app is pretty straightforward, but with a couple major failures. Every time I leave the app and come back in to what I was reading, the app would freeze or the page would show nothing. I would have to close out the app and find where I left off. On that note, it’s difficult to find where I left off, unless I remember the exact volume. This poses an issue when reading multiple series. The iOS app seems to not have a functional bookmarking feature. I would love if the app can keep track off where I left off.
I wish that they offered details on when you purchase
by PlayfulFeline on 2019/06/11 10:39
I’m not sure how many volumes I’ve bought this week and it’s not gonna come out of my money for a while due to iOS billing. Like for one iOS should just charge you when you do the thing. However for two I wish viz provided a section to tell me when I purchased each volume.
Nice app, numerous titles, but could be improved
by Dgryz on 2019/01/03 15:22
Great choice of manga here on an affordable monthly price. The app is pretty good too, but lacks the ability to bookmark series for future reading. What’s annoying too is that it doesn’t keep traces of what you are reading if you don’t dl itso you must browse through all the catalog to find your title again. Finally I encountered a bug: each time my iPad screens lock, the app goes black screen at unlock and needs to be rebooted
Good but could use some improvements
by Annoyed gamer on 2018/12/18 08:44
Pros: Just subscribed because for $1.99 you do get so much manga to read. It’s also a great way to support creators and get quality translations. The pages are also great looking and don’t look pixelated. Cons: The app itself is easy to navigate, but it’s hard to find manga that’s included as part of my subscription within the browse section. I clicked on 4-5 different series before I was able to actually locate one that was a part of the subscription. Please add a symbol or add another filter to just show what’s available in the subscription. Or have an option to hide the paid series. I would also like if you could bookmark a section in a chapter and be able to come back to it later. The loading times on front page take awhile as well as when you are looking at a series.
Great to have more manga but lacking some features
by Subliminalman on 2019/01/22 17:09
Really cool to have more manga to read but I do miss the weekly magazine. Some features I’d like to see that would improve the app is a favorites tab that I can add starred manga to so I can find them quickly. The other thing is having a way to tell which chapters I already read so I don’t have to keep tabs myself.
Good content, bad app
by AllyEncampment on 2019/02/05 23:10
For the price, this is an absurd deal. $2 a month to read tons of manga is awesome,but the app doesn't cooperate most of the time. When it works, it's flawless, but it's constantly lagging out so you'll get stuck on the same page or it won't load your list of downloaded chapters or even the store. I'd still recommend it since restarting the app to fix is pretty quick, and the amount of manga is amazing,but compared to something like Comixology, this app is garbage.
Great app
by Menedaus on 2018/01/22 07:44
Pros 1. Reasonably priced 2. downloadable purchases (I really love this as it means I can read when wi-fi isn’t available) 3. Official source 4. App runs great, haven’t had it crash in ages since it’s early days before it was fine tuned. 5. Devs actively read reviews and comments to improve their product Cons 1. While a person’s library can be filter for a given title, there isn’t an option to hide books in the library that are not currently downloaded. 2. Free previews are nice, and while one chapter is good enough to judge the artwork, it’s not enough to determine whether the writing and story will be enjoyable. 3. While I understand that publishers tend to specialized in certain genres and demographics, it would be nice to see a wider variety available.
User Experience!
by sugarbushsloot on 2019/03/26 01:25
Hello!, I just want to let Viz Media, or whoever is in charge — especially the user face developers and the others who have a hand in making reading the material(s) online super easy and enjoyable — know that I greatly appreciate how simple and inexpensive it is to read the content the company provides on their website and app! Thank you!
Fixed most of my problems!
by Daaaatttt bbbooooiiii on 2019/03/24 18:11
When I first reviewed this app it was sluggish, hard to navigate, and it didn’t remember what you were reading. That’s all fixed now! It’s still not perfect, I imagine it’d still be a bit difficult for new subscribers to tell what they get for free and what they’d have to pay for. The subscription is an absolute steal at $2 with this serviceable app, I highly recommend it. 4.5/5 stars.
great app
by shjwlqndndmsk on 2019/05/07 22:54
i just started reading the one piece manga on viz because i finished the anime up to the section i could get up to, now just have to wait until july for it to release wano arc episodes :) i haven’t really dug into this app fully, but from what i’ve done so far it’s perfect for reading english dubs of manga. super cheap for a monthly membership and it’s got easy UI.
What happened?
by KyuubiKhaos on 2019/01/29 18:57
I was excited for the overhaul of the Shonen Jump app and experience, but this latest major update has way more problems than anything! First of all, it’s laggy as hell. Loading takes forever even on a good connection, and just scrolling through the app is incredibly sluggish. If I do manage to start reading something, even that is slow and unresponsive at times. On top of which, this app has suddenly become a HUGE drain on the battery. I have no problem with continuing to be a paid subscriber to the service, but please fix this app.
This New Update Needs Work
by Gr8Wizard on 2019/01/01 20:28
The new updated version effectively doesn’t work on my phone. Everything runs slowly, new issues of WSJ won’t populate in my library forcing me to read through my laptop’s web browser, and everything is slow to load and unresponsive. I understand it’s a new iteration of the app and it’s also the holiday’s, so I’m willing to wait a little for the bugs to be worked out. But if the app stays in this state I’ll just delete it because it’s effectively unusable, and it’s a strict downgrade of the version I’ve been using for nearly five years.
Needs improvement badly
by Lykosgreen on 2020/01/10 04:11
There is no bookmark or favorites option which is annoying if you follow many series. Also when catching up to a manga it’s annoying going to the next chapter because you have to press a small read next chapter button. And when you are finished a volume when marathoning there is no next chapter button it’s just a thing that says buy volume so you have to exit out of the manga and scroll down to the next chapter you’re on.
More Manga and accessibility
by Elvenight on 2019/03/10 16:30
Figure I should write this review since of the new changes. You can read lots of Manga from Shonen Jump for free now. They’ve fixed the problems with it being slow on older devices and show where you last left off in your chapters. Definitely a great deal if you read a lot of Manga.
Love the Variety
by eDOGx1117 on 2019/10/27 01:43
dbz fan here. Like berserk. I like "Monster", a weird non-fict. German serial killer detective mystery. Good show for a no explosions and big boob girls errwhere normal anime episode, every episode is so exciting and creepy. I'm reviewing anime and not the app really..this app is good i guess. I aint no incel, hate that word. I'm popular and love manga, be proud to like this quality form of entertainment rather than the chinese filtered bs like avengers nowadays
Almost perfect
by SM50 on 2019/01/06 15:00
I love having dozens of manga downloaded so I can read what I want in the moment. For the high quality comics the prices are reasonable. Only thing I would like is an account option where the read comics are already deleted. I have trouble keeping up where I am in the series since there is no tracking to tell you what book/chapter you read last.
A SLIGHT SUGGESTION
by Catch22Bandsban on 2019/09/27 17:26
In the “continue reading” folder, please give us the option to erase series that we don’t want to follow up on. I’m tired of titles cluttering the selection of manga I AM reading. Like I read the first chapter of some and I didn’t find it interesting, but now it’s always just there. I hope you guys can fix this!! It’s driving me insane.
