How to Buy Digital Manga on Tankobonbon - Tankobonbon

We are sloooooowly rolling out e-Books to the Tankobonbon site and it'll be by-request for now (on our Discord server). Here's a tutorial thread on how to purchase digital manga on PC (you can also do it on mobile) via Tankobonbon-Kobo.

Kobo is a world-renowned e-Book platform for all kinds of books. You can read your digital copies using your PC, smartphone, laptop, tablet, e-Reader as long as you have their app downloaded (which is free!). By buying digitals, you're supporting your favorite manga... legally!

Here's a step-by-step guide.

  1. Your favorite manga is available digitally via Tankobonbon-Kobo if it has a "Buy Kobo e-book" button beside the add to cart.

  2. You will be redirected to Kobo's page for the manga. The price is indicated in Philippine peso. Just click the red 'Add to Cart' button or the 'Buy Now' gray button on the right-hand side of the screen.

  9. Your purchased eBook is getting synced to your app once you're in. You may purchase more eBooks directly on the app (we don't get any profit from it unless you buy books using the Tankobonbon's site *so we can get sum snack funds* 😉)

If you regularly purchase eBooks via Tankobonbon, don't forget to sync your "My Books" library so it'll show up on the app. :)
