FTP Edit

Online readers Edit

Lots and lots of them. Most noticeable is Mangatensei, AtoZManga, Mangafox Batoto. On Batoto you can easily find latest chapters and names of scanlation groups. (Dead) But there are obvious drawbacks: no licensed manga, hentai, guro or lolicon hosted.

Some more decent readers: Mangadex (HQ scans, gives credit to scanlators) , Kissmanga (only if manga not available in Mangadex), MangaTown , and so on, whichever you might like. Prefer Mangadex over the rest as it has best quality. Avoid watermarked pages of mangafox, mangahere etc.

Just stay away from resources that upload downscaled releases and put watermarks on them.

Especially Mangafox. Seriously.
