Love it ….. but 3/5
I love this app. My only issue, I’m a ferocious reader. As of today I’m reading 41 different stories. I’d pay 100 bucks a year to get entire books and series. I just read so fast , it get frustrating and I’m losing a bit of interest. Please consider a premium membership for those of us who read a tremendous amount of content and add an adult section as well. Thank you !
Love this app! Worth the $$$ 5/5
I am so happy to have found this app! For a small monthly fee, you get to read so many wonderful stories! I’d rather pay a monthly fee than pay per episode/chapter like other Webtoon applications. You get so much more for what you’re paying. I’ve been a subscriber for over a year now, and it’s worth EVERY penny! I’ve found so many great stories on here.
The only improvement I want is for a formatted version on the iPad. It doesn’t fill the iPad properly and I wish it did. Even just a little more fill of the page would be great! I hope this improvement is in the works!

Good comics, but I like reading a whole story for free, not spending my money on a story I can probably find somewhere else 🤷🏾♀️
The app is amazing it’s just there’s not a lot that u can really read that’s interesting too me but y’all should try it out!
Issues with the app 2/5
I used to have no problem with this app I do love it however with the last year with every update the app doesn’t load comic episodes properly and it’s absolutely frustrating since it’s something I pay for.
good app but... 3/5
it's a really great app. i love the stories and the quality. what i don't like is how much you have to pay and wait so long for things. it's either i pay for manta unlimited or i wait so long for only 1 free pass. i think it's a waste. i have to go to websites and stuff to finish the story instead. i like the app, i really do. but it makes me very impatient and mad sometimes.
Love this app really, but … 4/5
I’ve been using this app to read manga & web toons for a few years now and I love it. My only complaint is that they don’t have the app set to work/look good on iPad … or the iPad mini. Otherwise I would give it 5 stars.
I loved this app, I’ve had to delete and reinstall it so many times trying to fix it…here’s the issue, every time I open the app everything is gray. Nothing will load, it’s not a Wi-Fi issue because I’ve moved around and it won’t work anywhere not at my house or else where. I’d never had this issue it’s been going on for about a week. I had to cancel paying because what the point in paying for something that will never load. Not even the novels would load or show up…and when I hit the help center google and safari warn me from opening the website due to it being unsafe I really just don’t what to do…
Add a comments section! 5/5
I really love this app a lot! The translations are really good and the stories are unique. I just wish there was a comment section, I’m reading The Dangerous Convenience Store right now and it’s so cute and funny! I also love that it only costs about $4-$5 a month! Compared to other apps where you have to spend a lot of money on coins to read multiple stories, I like this a lot better! Wish more apps would let me pay monthly instead!
ETA : I am begging for a comments section. I would love to express how much I enjoy the series I read and gush over them with other fans as well as sing the artist’s and creator’s praises!
So good: it’s amazing. Incredible 10/10. Worth every cent 5/5
By Ereh Emankcin
This app. Omg. So good and SO worth it. With other apps you have to pay per chapter/strip or whatever which was honestly the worst because I wouldn’t even try to read them if I knew I was going to have to keep paying to read it. Manta is the best. One price, once a month for the most incredible stories. The huge variety of stories/genres to choose from is my favorite. I love that the stories have different authors/artists: all the stories aren’t from one author and one artist. I stay up waaaaaay too late reading these 😂
One thing I would like: I want to be able to comment on stories directly on the app. Idk if that’s a feature that’s already built in that I haven’t figured out how to use, or if it can be added. But there’s some stories that I really want to leave messages/comments on for the authors/artists and for future readers. That’s really my only “complaint” and it really isn’t complaining. This app is for real awesome. Definitely a good app to have spent money on, even though I very rarely pay for apps (I’m broke 🥲) 100% worth it.
You Will Own Nothing 1/5
The app works fine for what it is, but what it is in not a model I can support. Subscription models are not something I use when when that subscription model does not include an option to buy. If their subscription model said, you get so many chapters you own at the end of the month, I would consider it depending on how many chapters verses the cost. The ability to read unlimited chapters while subscribed has no value to me and thus would not be factored in.
I’m sure this model works for many people, but I am not one of those people. I already am not happy about the fact that I must read them on an app (i.e. digitally), so making me pay to rent a product that is not in the format I want is not making it better. I’m sure there are many great titles on here. If that is true, I hope that physical publishers of manga, manhwa, and manhua (as well as their connected novels) will pick them up.
For many people this review will be seen as a reason to pick up this app and if that’s you, great. I do not begrudge you your reading preferences. It just is not for me. Again, my problem is not with there being a subscription model. My problem is with there not being a model that allows for purchase.
Does the unlimited turn to a free pass after awhile? 4/5
If a series is free pass and the latest episodes are unlimited only in the future will it turn to a free pass as the series goes on?
Other than this question the stories on this app are phenomenal and totally worth the wait. I recommend and I might get unlimited in the future.
Manta … is okay 3/5
I don’t like how long it’s taking to get through a fully story. The completed stories all have rushed endings… so if you find a story you like. It will take over a year, and that’s if they even come close to the end… and they won’t. Pretty pictures, beautiful dresses, beautiful dresses.
While I absolutely love this app and most things about it, it makes me mad that you guys completely took away the GL genre option. And the amount of GL stories pale in comparison to the BL ones and I feel like it’s a double standard when choosing which ones to put on here
It’s great but… 3/5
By Cheeto puff 319
I love it! The story’s are great but the only way to actually read them is to get unlimited, so I have to try another app like this that hopefully doesn’t have the same restrictions
Great writing and art 5/5
By Eddies little girl
Manta is a great app! I am an Avid reader, comic book and anime fan and this app feeds all those needs!
Not canceling my subscription 1/5
I have tried for over an hour to cancel it and i cant find how to, on the App Store it says that it will appear as soon as I want to cancel it and it doesn't show up and I have been looking up how to and all of them say that it'll be there and it'll say cancel subscription or restart subscription as soon as I press unlimited and then manage and it wont show up all the options it gives me is to ask for help on how to cancel it.
More BL! 5/5
I love this app! I’m addicted. Just wish there was more BL. I finally ran out of stuff to read. Not sure how much longer I will continue the membership tho. But so far so great!
What we love and hate 4/5
By Ambalam Griggers
Love- the quality of comic books/ manga
The ability to track your reads.
The rating system
The gorgeous artwork and incredible story lines
Hate- no section for comments so we can’t build a fan base community
Some of the manga end too quickly! Are the writers under too much pressure?
Need more to read!
Lol no 1/5
By fraud seeker
It’s not a fun read it’s a ploy to make 5bucks a montage from you. I saw an add and gave in to it and they sprung a”free pass” on me if u wanna start reading something and not be able to finish I suggest dating a man not this app
It genuinely pretty good 4/5
Now I have one issue, i can finish the story because you have to pay, I’m broke, so that makes it hard to finish a story on this app
It’s ok 2/5
Don’t get me wrong the app offers REALLY good stores but the same time that’s the problem, with hits like “Under the Oak Tree” the artist only uploads every 10 days and every 4th episode goes on hiatus. Normally one wouldn’t be a Provo but almost 89% the creators follow this pattern. The reason why is because you pay monthly to read everything for free but the amount of content you get for that month of payment is so little it’s better to just do what other apps do and charge per “chapter” or “tile”.
I really really wanted to support the app and read the many good stores it has but with how much it’s costing for the little content I get to actually read it’s not worth it at all to keep paying.
I love it 5/5
I love this plat form it lets me geek out whenever I need to ( most of the time)
I also I wanted to know if I am able to make my own story bc reading this has given me so many ideas
Love this sm 5/5
Literally love this app so much! It’s to the point where I sit in class thinking about reading when I get home… I do think having to pay for the subscription thing is inconvenient for some people but it’s not that much money so it doesn’t change how much I love this app!
I am impatient 3/5
Sorry I have 9 open series and I pay for unlimited $4.99 a month. I am not even a month in and I seriously could have read even more of their series while I wait for the once a week update or the 3 times a month update. Sorry but even the series they say are finished, are not. They are all just on a season break….. sigh. I likely won’t renew my subscription because I can’t read to my hearts content. Gonna go back to e-books or paper books. At least then I get more to read.
Cant pay 4/5
I love it i saw an ad on it on instagram but when i wen to go buy the Unlimited pass it wouldn’t let me at all and its very irritating because now i have to wait for the free pass every 24 hours
Good App but... 3/5
This app is amazing I love reading the stories. But the only problem is that I can't seem to read outside my home. All the other apps on my phone me work perfectly with cellular, except this one. Overall it is a good app, but just need a small fix.
Worth it!! 4/5
I really enjoy this app. For the longest time I was hesitant about having too many reading apps but downloaded this one for some reason and quickly became hooked! I love that they have a simple monthly subscription. NO COINS. No dumb point system. Just 5 bucks and unlimited reading if you don’t have patience for ads. Honestly, if they bumped it up a little more for the artist I wouldn’t complain.
Only one suggestion… add a “have read” or “read” tab under the my series. You already have the saved, you got the current reads, you just need a way to document what’s already been read. Sometimes I like to go back and reread favs but I’m terrible at remembering titles. A Read tab would be magnificent. Maybe even a way to rank them in a particular order on the tab so the true favs stay at the top… other than that great app!
I hate the update 2/5
It’s used to be so good and I would spend all my time on it. Now they added a “unlimited” version and I can’t see the mangas I love anymore. I miss the old version. DONT download this!
Love this app but… 4/5
When I read a lot of them a few were really inappropriate and probably shouldn’t be for 12+ kids unless there is a restriction for the mangas that are inappropriate other than that love this app!
A little idea 4/5
By a little idea for the creaters
This app is so cool it is definitely worth 5 stars but the reason I didn’t rate it 5 stars is because u only get one free pass and the episode isn’t even long u can read it in 2-3 minutes it would be nice if we had a few more free passes like 3-8 free passes so we can get through more than one episode.
please add arabic language 🥺 4/5
i love reading manhwa in this app so much but sometimes i don’t understand the story, i wish that you could add Arabic language..
By domino 🥺
This is the first time I’ve made an immediate purchase without regret. This app is amazing, amazing.
Worth it 5/5
By Queen Gráce
I only read a few stories on here but they’re so entertaining. The only thing I really wish for is a comment feature to read other people’s reactions to episodes or write your own. That would entice me to read a lot more of the stories
i actually giggle when on this app, but please add a comment section! 5/5
idk, i just want to see the opinions of others and discuss stuff hehe <33
Manta Comics Subscription 5/5
I love this app, it gives me something to read when I have the time and it has so many great comics, the Art is great as well!!! I had some trouble trying to resubscribe to Manta Comics Unlimited, however, the problem finally was resolved. I’m not sure what occurred but I can finally access the content. I still highly recommend this app for any romantic readers !!! It’s definitely worth it!
Comment section 4/5
I’ve been using Manta for over a year. I love it, but I find myself wishing I could discuss and talk to other readers whom also share the same enjoyment with the comics I’m reading through some sort of comment section/forum.
Monthly subscription 5/5
By Mrs. Healer
Love the option of monthly subscription vs buying coins - long run save money in my opinion.
No updates 2/5
By Akeya M.
So I saw an ad for Manta about two years ago and got hooked on one of the more popular stories. Slowly what I’ve come to realize is that they continuously add new stories to read, complete a season and then you’re waiting for months for an update. I have a story in my library that hasn’t been updated in over 4 months. I have another story that has the complete novel available to read yet, the comic with images hasn’t been updated in months. So you can read ahead without visuals but if that’s the case, you’re better off just buying a book. I’m not knocking the artists and rushing their work at all it just seems unfair to pay for something and know that you may not get anything new on current stories. Beyond that I’ve had multiple stories end early due to unforeseen circumstances, which is totally fine. Or a story just ending what seems to be abruptly all together. You have to keep paying a subscription to hope maybe a story with a finished season, not completed, comes back or is updated but doesn’t seem to be a guarantee and then wants you to turn on notifications for it. Like I said I’ve been waiting 4+ months for a lot of stories yet all I get are new ones being added on. So I wonder if this is just a repetitive cycle. I’m hoping there’s something updated by the end of the month before my subscription ends because this will most likely be my last before switching to a different app. I’m not going to keep paying money to wait in hopes of something coming back.
Such a good app 5/5
By nickname review person
The subscription is a good deal especially for a binge reader like me.
Not working anymore? 2/5
Great comics, but the app stopped working for me. I can’t resume my subscription (which I noticed has gone up) and now I’m stuck with this ridiculous “coin” thing.
The reason I am not giving you a 5 star 4/5
By soraya sloan EL
I will not give it a 5 star because you have to pay to read more and that is absolutely ridiculous that you have to pay just to read more of the books and it’s not fair to me and I bet the other people I hate that you have to wait a buy pass so yeah I will not be giving you a 5 star
Better than expected! 5/5
Ive already shared this to my group chat. Absolutely amazing. I love the unlimited option vs buying hella coins.
I would say, an option to donate to the author and a comments section would be out of this world updates.
I have reset everything and KNOW I am connected to the internet. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the app! It doesn’t work and I was so excited to read from here. Let me know when y’all actually have an app that works.
Unfortunate unlimited feature not working 1/5
I resubscribe my account every other month due to my work and school schedule.
This app was my easy get away to read great webcomics without the hassle of searching on the web.
Unfortunately this months subscription didn’t go as expected, after hitting resubscribe button and logging/opening my account there was no “unlimited chapters” for me to read I was stuck behind the pay wall…
Emailing manta support team they said its an Apple issue. I can clearly see my Apple account was charged and my other subscriptions(like Crunchyroll) worked just fine except Manta.
I would subscribe again if only it worked. They tried giving me unlimited on both emails I’ve provided… but still didn’t work.
(I can see my saved favorites and past history’s of chapters I’ve read months ago) my account is logged in but still no unlimited access.
This was an issue that didn’t get solved right away, from Dec 17-27 for them to tell me it’s apples problem my account isn’t working and just 30mins for Apple to refund me and say the developers of manta controls account services and access to the app.
At least I got my refund, save your money and either find another app or just go back to using web links for free
Awesome App 4/5
By lis not liz
I enjoy this app a lot. They have a lot of good stories and they do a good job adding new ones like once a month I think?
The only thing I wish it had was a comment section. I wish I could make connections and discuss how a chapter made me feel. Or even leave a compliment for the author.
Other than that I highly recommend this app.
Yesss get it 5/5
By ty oupi
I love this app so much so much juiciness is going on so much spiciest like it’s so much going on. It’s so that you must get this app now😩😩😩🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍
I love this app I just wish there were comments at the end of the chapters to have discussion among other readers
