Farewell, OneManga!

As you may have already known, OneManga announced earlier today that their website will be closed down permanently starting next week. This is saddening as OneManga has been with me (and you) for the last  5 years. I still remember clearly the excitement I have every Friday, checking for new updates of Naruto, Bleach and One Piece etc. Now, there will be none of that. Nothing. Manga Rock was created to deliver that same excitement to manga lovers using mobile devices. Now that OneManga is closing down, we do not know what will happen to Manga Rock yet, will keep you all posted.

Therefore, for now, we have decided to give one small gift to our users: starting from this moment, for those of you who do not have access to popular titles like Naruto or Bleach using Manga Rock (aka mainly those who live in the US), please either reset or reinstall the application (those with lots of downloaded manga, reinstall would be better, if you have paid for the in-app already, unlocking again will not cost you any money). Launch it and wait for the catalog to repopulate. Check  your “Rank” tab in Catalog to see all those titles! We off the manga filter! What are you waiting for, go and download all your beloved series til your heart’s content (or exceed your hard drive’s limit) and cherish whatever is left of OneManga. Tell your friends to download the app too!

Thank you for your unending support for Manga Rock, we hope you enjoy it!

P/S: We just submitted Manga Rock 1.2 update to Apple and it is now in review. What’s in it? Not much, just a 4x increase in the download speed. You might see it in a day or two on the App Store.

  1. This is terrible, I just read about it on a forum. I’d hate to see MangaRock die, it’s my favorite mangareader. some other sites you could consider switching to when onemanga kicks the bucket are mangafox.com and mangavolume.com

  2. This is sad news indeed. This is the end of manga rock or a new beginning? Guess time will tell.

  3. Yes, this is quite….depressing, what will people do when when boredom strikes? Or when things are going bad and you need some sort of output? Or how will people get into new manga and such now?
    Yes, this is all saddening.
    The creaters of Manga Rock could ask the admins of the great OM for their database and create their own website that hosts manga? But I guess that’ll remain a dream :D
    But whatever you do from now on, I’ll always support Manga Rock.

  4. Nooooooo!!! mangarock is like the best manga reader for the ipod ever!!! maybe u can use scans from another site or something :P

  5. So after I sent a support ticket about this did I realise that there’s an announcement about it. -_-.

    I don’t think Manga rock will die out just yet. One manga is not the only source for manga reading although… there is nothing like one manga ;/. I hope Manga rock will still continue though.

  6. since onemanga is closing is the app still going to run? until i find out im gonna read as much sj manga as i can :P

  7. I’m guessing they could work on Manga Rock to allow different sources, like Manga Bear, an app that allowed to use OneManga, MangaFox, Manga Toshokan and another one for its library.

    Of course, with OM and MT down, that would pretty much only leave Manga Fox, and that’s until they shut it down too (which is likely to happen)

  8. Still no iPad version, and the current Version doesnt work with the iPad!Any plans in for an iPad app from you?!
