Manga Rock received a 4-out-of-5-star review from

Hi everyone,

First of all, before I start with 148apps, let me say this “THANK YOU”, BIG ONE, to our amazing users! Our first week on the app store has been astounding with over 3,000 downloads! Without your support, we couldn’t have achieved such number. Thank you!

Now that I have expressed my thanks, let’s get back to the main event. is one of the earliest and most respectable app review sites around, and is a founding member of the Organization for App Testing Standards – an organization devoted to editorial ethics. An hour ago, Manga Rock received a 4-out-of-5-star-review from them! My heart skipped a beat seeing the review. Here are some comments regarding the app, taken from’s review of Manga Rock:

“Manga Rock is a great way to view and download manga from, and every otaku should at least download the free version.”

“Reading manga with Manga Rock is surprisingly pleasant—more so than using the web version from my computer, even.”

“Overall, if you’re a manga fan, you need the Manga Rock app.”

It was a privilege for Manga Rock to be reviewed by 148apps and received a 4 out of 5 star, and that made me feel a whole lot better, especially after this week’s situation with Yen Press, and some unethical competition.

Again, it is a good day for me, for Manga Rock, and for Not A Basement Studio. Again, I, on behalf of Not A Basement Studio, would like to give a big thank you to all of our users for the amazing support, thank you to Bonnie Eisenman for the awesome review, and to the rest of our team for their hard work in the last few months.

P/S : We love Marvel Comics, but the fact that Manga Rock coincidentally get to stand beside them on’s homepage, our 4 star vs. their 3.5 star, just make me giggle :P And btw, the iPad arrived today (and no I’m sorry but you will have to wait another day for the review of the iPad)!
