Where to read your favourite manga? Well right this way please...

Hey guys, due to the recent manga website bust, it's become really quite hard to find your favourite manga online. Only a handful of small manga websites remain, and these are especially hard to locate.

In my honest opinion, the best place to read your manga is Spectrum Nexus, a small, one-man operated website with a great reader and a fantastic selection of popular titles ranging from Naruto to Berserk and even many Yuri/Yaoi manga, which are usually virtually non-existent within the more popular websites. The best thing about The Spectrum is it's community and disqus comment boards which are full of people ready to recommend a new title to read.

If you want your manga fix really early on, then I suggest following Mangastream on twitter. The website itself, only hosts Binktopia [very high quality, fantastic translation] releases.

A good alternative to Binktopias scans comes from SleepyFans. Sadly SleepyFans does not have a dedicated reader online so their scans have to be downloaded zipped up from their website.

Anyway, here are the links, enjoy !
Spectrum Nexus - Many titles with a thriving community.
