Started watching JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 5/Golden Wind lately.

The only thing it does better than Parts 1-3 is the animation. When it comes to characters and plot it's the same significant step down that Part 4 was.

Hard to disagree tbh, though I'd rate it over Part 4 any day of the week. I love Bruno and Mista but the rest are just kind of... there. Giorno doesn't even feel like the protagonist of his own part.

strawberry floatin' great OPs though. :datass:

Can't agree that Part IV and V are a step down from I-III in terms of characters or plot. :dread:

I am up to JoJo part 4 and so far part 3 is the low point. The Jotaro story relied too much constant new villains being introduced and discarded. 4 does that to some extent but since all takes place in the same location things seem to have more lasting consequence.

Jonathan and Joseph are still the best protagonists the series has had so far.

Kindle Unlimited has some manga, but the selection is toss.

You could curate some yourself, if you've got time on your hands. You'll probably need to convert them to a compatible format, though.

You don't mean a Fire HD 10 do you?

If so you're laughing, there's plenty of places to read manga in your browser.

That's the one. What places would you suggest? I'll bookmark them on there.

Wait. If it has a browser, can't you just sign up to viz.com and read them through the site?

Yeah, you should be good with the browser versions of Viz Shounen Jump and Mangaplus. Then places like MangaDex or MangaSee are good for everything else although of course your views wont be supporting the authors or publishers.

It's been quite a while since I read any manga online. I used to use MangaReader, but it's riddled with ads. I've heard good things about MangaDex.

SoK and Jam are right though, you should try Viz first and foremost. Their library is pretty solid. Support the official release, and all that.

I wouldn't know, I wasn't sure if the sites work like apps or if they're really fiddly. Will have a look.

Thanks guys for the suggestions.

No idea how the site works compared to the app. It's very basic, to be honest. Basic but straight forward and the layout/buttons are easy to follow.

Kind of.

The manga you can read will be accessible through the SHONEN JUMP link. The READ and WATCH links imply certain things, right? Well they're both actually just stores. Maybe they lead to different things in territories where Viz has more right to other related content *shrug*

I got One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 :| I've only done one mission but I'm not feeling it. Will carry on with it, but regardless of how I end up feeling about it, I'm now more open to trying World Seeker and Unlimited World Red.

One Piece 504: Great job on building up the Celestial Dragons for what then happens at the auction :toot: It was worth it. The whole build up to this kicking off, and the chill scenes before it has been great. Also, HOW WAS THAT GUY PICKING HIS NOSE?! :lol: (Y'know, because he had a helmet on.) Feels really apt to be reading this arc now, what with the BLM movement being in the spotlight.
