5 Best Manga Websites to Read for Free

Free Manga Reading Websites

“These free manga websites will give you access to many amazing manga series.”

While watching anime has its perks, reading manga saves a lot of time, and sometimes, we can avoid sitting through mediocre anime adaptations. However, it always feels a bit challenging to find a good place to read manga without interruptions.

Given the tremendous popularity of manga in the Eastern and Western worlds, there are a few sources that offer free manga, and you don’t have to worry about not being able to support the authors who work to their bone to create these fantastic stories. So, without further ado, here are the best and most free manga websites you can visit right now.


Crunchyroll - Free Manga Websites

While you may have been only aware that Crunchyroll makes countless anime shows available across various regions, it also offers free manga to read, and you don’t need to pay a cent unless you really want an endless collection of manga and an ad-free experience.

However, while reading the manga of Crunchyroll, we found that there are no annoying ads except that the collection is limited to non-subscribers. You can still read a lot of manga for free, like Genshin Impact and Sun-Ken Rock, and you can always subscribe to the fan premium, which is incredibly cheap.

Manga Plus by Shueisha

Manga Plus by Shueisha is honestly a boon for manga readers as there are not many free services that will let you read all chapters for free. While you can read many chapters for free on the website, all the chapters are available for free on the app, so we suggest you go for the latter one, and it’s easy to use.

Unless you plan to read the latest chapters, which have yet to be made available outside of Japan, Manga Plus by Shueisha is your best bet to read any manga for free.

Shonen Jump

Shonen Jump is the official serializing publication for almost every manga, and while it doesn’t offer you all chapters for free, you can read the first three chapters and the recently released three chapters for free.

So, it is not entirely recommendable if you’re going to binge-read without having to pay for a subscription. However, it costs very little to pay for a subscription and is probably one of the most helpful premium subscriptions you can have if you are a frequent reader. Some of the notable titles available on the website are One Piece, Blue Lock, One-Punch Man, and My Hero Academia.


ComicWalker - Free Manga Websites

While so far, there is always a catch to reading manga for free, such as limited titles, limited chapters, and watching ads, ComicWalker is a variable that lets you read every manga available on the site for completely free.

Yes, you’ve read that right. It is run by Kadokawa, one of the popular manga publishers in Japan, and you can read all existing manga on the website for free. While not every Kadokawa manga is available on ComicWalker, it shouldn’t stop you from searching to see if a manga you want is available on the website.

Furthermore, you don’t even need to sign up to read the manga, but if you’re going to add a few manga to your list so that you can access them more easily later on, it is recommended to do so and remember, it is entirely free.


BookWalker - Free Manga Websites

BookWalker is akin to Webtoon in a way, but for manga. However, it doesn’t give you as much freedom because while you can read a limited number of titles for free, there is a lot of pay-to-read content you may not be willing to.

Regardless, we highly recommend you try it once, and if you can purchase it one time, there is an option to earn coins from which you can further renew your subscription. Given how it brings a vast library of manga from publishers such as Kodansha and VIZ, BookWalker may be your best bet to find your favorite manga in case you’re unable to locate it on other free manga websites.

Final Thoughts

Since not everyone can afford a manga subscription, we can understand how hard it must be for you to find your desired manga title, and these websites have a good chance of offering you some interesting titles.

Furthermore, by reading through these websites, you will be supporting the artists who work tirelessly, which would be a satisfaction that far surpasses the pleasure of going through the story of a good manga. So, we hope you found our article on free manga websites useful, and be sure to check out free anime streaming websites if you’re also into watching anime.
