Hello! I'm looking to get some manga to read on my phone, in order to improve my Japanese. I live in Japan and am wondering if there's a digital purchase site or app, similar to the kindle, that I can get for my phone and/or PC (I don't think it's possible to get stuff from amazon.co.jp to a kindle that's registered to the UK site, is it?) Thanks for any information you can give me!

I don't know if they have apps, but off the top of my head I know of both Comic Walker (Kadokawa) and Book Walker (Kodansha, IIRC).

This is what pops-up on google, I guess you can see if it will work but it's not for free majority of these apps requires payment.

I'm questioning the legality of some of those apps.

If you're in Japan you should also be able to set up a new account for amazon.co.jp, but you may need a payment card registered to a Japanese address (I have an acccount and have ordered books and discs, but it won't let me buy ebooks or music, even with vouchers).
