It is generally advised to avoid aggregator websites as they consist of annoying ads, highly compressed images and no updates on best quality releases.
Scans and officials' reading should suffice with the top two choices under Web Reading, in case of a very niche series or series licensed only for paperback publishing, do check Nyaa.si - a torrent tracker.
Remember to always use an AdBlocker like uBlock Origin.
- MangaDex - Top choice for manga reading. The main site where all scanlators upload primarilily. No image compression, no ads, ability to choose from different releases and recieve edits from uploaders directly.
- Mangasee123 - Our second best choice. Aggregator site with no image compression but has ads (Use Ublock). Consists of massive library of scans + offcials.
