PlayStation Vita eBook Reader Has A Library Of One Piece Manga

imageHave a PlayStation Vita? Have a Japan region PlayStation Network account? Then you can grab an eBook reader app from Japan’s PlayStation Store.


This app connects users to a massive library of 3,300 eBooks available for purchase. The eBook shop is loaded with manga like Fate/Stay Night, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Naruto, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (color version), and One Piece (color version). The touch screen manga reader looks pretty slick too.



If you get the app before January 10, 2013 you’ll get a 300 yen credit on the Reader store, which may not be enough to even get one manga volume. One Piece (color version) is 473 yen and Fate/stay Night is 567 yen. Since Sony is about to shut down the PSP Comic Store with re-downloads ending on January 2013 it’s unclear if we’ll see the eBook reader app overseas.

    Ohh with this both Vita and 3DS have their own E-Reader there.^_^ But well, 3DS is still a bit better here as they have Light Novel collection.^_^

      I really don’t like reading them on my 3ds and don’t do it on my vita since i read them at night and the screen would keep me up.

        Well, it is just a mean of option there. Sometimes when you are not near your P.C, you can just your 3DS to read there. Especially when most 3DS owner actually needs to bring them outside for steps and street pass.

          I would use mine for reading while riding public transit~.

      Did the 3ds one come out yet or is that next week?
      And what manga will the 3ds one get… hmmmm….

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Haven’t come out yet but, it is going to have i think the same amount of manga support there. The only thing different is 3DS get Light Novel.

      • puchinri

        It’ll probably get most everything of the Squeenix manga and some of the other publishers. I’m very curious though too.

  • thanks this

  • dexter_lab

    Can you load your own .cbr, .pdf or .something files?

    •  I don’t think they’ll let us ..
      Cause the only uses to do that for us is :
      1) SAVE / REUPLOAD
      2) Translate and publish on readers sites

  • Shogunreaper
