  • Love Under The Oak Tree and others Aug 1, 2021

    By Zan K
    Under the Oak Tree is one the best stories I have ever read. I do not have much experience with reading online stories such as these but I read a lot of books. Under the Oak Tree and others I have read have good plot development and keep you waiting for the next installment. I wish they would release the installments faster for Under the Oak Tree but I do understand that for a good story it takes time to do put it out there. The Beau and the Beast is another fine example. I would recommend this app to adults who like fantasy and romance in my case. They also have different kinds of stories such as mystery and so much more. As long as they do not raise their rates this app that is worth the $3.99 per month. As of now I am still on the free trial version but it is affordable for what you get. A WORd of WARNING for parents of young viewers, some of the stories are of an adult content and not suitable for young viewers. I would hope that the app will put a parental control part to it due to material that is of adult matters! I would not have let my children when they were young to watch the app or pay for it without a parental consent/control on the app.

    i really like this. well written comics. beautiful drawings. story telling that leaves to want to know more. access to free reading so you can see if you like this. thats what drawed me here to read more. everywhere else you have to pay to just to read a little more and i often give upon them. At least Manta you can see more and want to buy to read it faster. i prefer the Manta strategy and comics.

    I saw an ad for this on FB so I downloaded it, but I can’t even create an account. I tap on Continue with Apple and...nothing. Nothing happens. It just sits there. When I tap the App Support link here in the iTunes Store, it just takes me to the front page of the Manta website which also seems to take issue with either my iPad or Safari, I’m not sure which; I can’t scroll to the bottom of the main page and I don’t see anything that looks like a link to customer support at the top. I wanted to read some of these comics but...🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ Can’t seem to get anywhere with the website OR the app. I’ll change my rating if you fix this. 😒😒😒 Edit: I gave up on trying to use “Continue with Apple” and used a google login instead, and that worked. Why is the Apple login offered if it doesn’t work..? Anyways, my comments about the website remain unchanged, and I never heard a peep from support, so...🤷‍♀️ After using the app for a few days my only complaint is as an iPad Pro user. The thing doesn’t use my entire screen like the other comic apps I have. I expanded it from what I assume is the phone version, but it’s still a strip down the middle of my screen with a good two or 3 inches of space on either side. Get with the times, guys. 4 stars since it def ain’t perfect...but I do like paying a subscription fee vs per comic (tho I expect that will severely limit what comics you manage to get for your app).

    they have excellent stories it is a small monthly fee to do unlimited reading which is unlike any other comic app I have seen on the market today. I previously was reading on many spaces and feeling consistently frustrated not just by the lack of updates but also the amount of money that people were trying to wring from you for even a single story. I hope that this app does not change and that they maintain the integrity that they appear to have at the moment and the quality of stories.
  • For a new app it is really good... Mar 2, 2021

    By Suni-chan
    Not sure why everyone is giving it horrible reviews just because you have to pay a fee to read the comics. I think the $4 a month is extremely reasonable, I already feel like I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of it and my first month isn’t even over yet. The library is very limited at the moment but they are adding more and expanding. The comics I’m currently reading I’m really enjoying. They even have ‘The Lady and Her Butler’ which is a premium comic on Tapas that you would have to pay PER EPISODE. For a comic over 100 episodes I would have had to pay well over $5 for it so I already feel like I’m getting a good deal on Manta. My only complaints are of course the limited library at the moment, and the clunky loading. Sometimes when I first open the app all my subscribed and liked series have disappeared and I have to close and reopen the app to get it to show again. Also pressing on the notification bell or the heart icon is clunky, sometimes it doesn’t even respond and I have to press again. I feel if they improved the loading and reaction times of everything in the app then it would be a much smoother experience.

    A while ago, a Manta ad popped up on one of my social media’s with a few images from the story Under the Oak Tree and of course I immediately downloaded the app the learn more. Cut to me like a half hour later, majorly annoyed that I was already hitting a paywall. I decided to cave to the premium monthly fee, telling myself that I would just do it for a month to read a bunch of the stories. Then I could cancel it and periodically pay for a month to check in if I wanted. Now it’s over a month later and I’m so happy with the service that I have no plans of stopping it any time soon. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE that the fee is just a monthly flat rate. I’m familiar with the Webtoon method that makes you pay for coins so you can buy episodes. This is so much better though!! For four bucks a month I can binge read all the stories I want and there’s so much great content! I’m always finding new stories to read and already have several that I follow faithfully. The art is amazing, they’re super fun, and it’s a great way to kill some time on your phone. Highly recommend this app!

    It's a great app, even if you have to purchase a subscription plan which isn't that much for 3 dollars. The exclusive stories are the best, the art work are great too and the best part is the fact that you will get lost in a story and forget about the time. In which you'll end up finishing it and then having to wait for the next chapter to release next week. It's so agonizing waiting, which is great, in some way 🤣.
  • Worth it. Apr 4, 2021

    By Boogabogahdhhdhdhs
    I downloaded this app for ONE specific series that I wanted to read without having to spend money for individual chapters/episodes. For $4 I was able to completely read that one series and then go on to read OTHER incredible series. It goes without saying that this is an incredible deal. There’s a good variety of romance comics and they’re all very high quality in terms of story and art. I really can’t fully express how good of a deal this is. To all the people complaining about having to pay, I’m guessing that you’re probably not yet old enough to have a credit card/digit payment method. If that’s the case, then you’re probably not even old enough to read most of the series to begin with so...🤷‍♀️. If the devs want, they can implement a 1 time payment method for users who want to use the app without a subscription, that way some individuals can ask for their parents to pay or they can use physical money to buy a prepaid card and use that to make a 1 time payment for a single months use (the price would probably be bumped above 4 but it would still be a good deal imo) To (the probably small) portion of people who can pay but simply don’t want to, please consider how much work goes into making these comics by the artists. It’s a lot of work and they deserve to be payed for that work, especially if it’s of the quality that’s being presented in this app. To the developers of this app, thank you!👏

    This app is addictive!! I've always loved Japanese manga, so it was really cool to stumble across manhwa. Some of these stories get super... Spicy 😏 and some hit you in the feels or make you literally lol! Worth the low subscription price... A lot of manhwa apps charge either by the story or make you buy credits to unlock new chapters. Manta's low sub fee pays for itself even if you only read thru the app once in awhile... But especially so if you become obsessed like me 😁

Under the Oak Tree, contrary to what was in the ad, is a phenomenal story so far. I’m addicted, and I’m exploring other comics as well. Thank you for this. You’ve successfully converted me to a paying subscriber. Keep up the great work, and I’m sharing your app with my entire following and my friends!

    Generally it could be a great app but I am disappointed to see certain stories such as "Under the Oak Tree" have such poorly done translations that the English is unreadable and makes it impossible to follow the plot.

    Was nice when it advertised free but like everything else it's really not. You have to pay to access the actually decent stories.
  • Having issues with the app and accessing help May 13, 2021

    By orchaic
    I have just subscribed/paid for the app, and although it worked well last night, when trying to access it today nothing loads on any of my pages - they are just blank. It says that I am unsubscribed even though I am - and when I go to subscribe, hoping that will cause things to show up on the app, it tells me I’m subscribed. Each time I try to access help, it takes me to a page that warns me it’s not secure, so I don’t access it. I have tried shutting down my phone, deleting and reinstalling the app, and nothing is working. Any help would be appreciated, and I’ll leave a good review.
  • Great stories… some way too short. Oct 7, 2021

    By Livchelle
    I wish you guys would enforce a mandatory panel length update. For Tomb of The Great Swords, it seems awesome, however for literally the last three weeks the authors have posted 25 panels each update. 25 is a good median. The most recent one was a whopping 29 panels. It almost feels like a cartoon and is really agitating. Considering we pay to “binge”, I’d like to be able to binge stories. I understand some works may have less contributors than others, so if they need to take more time to produce their work, they should. But to take a week to make something that can be read in under 2 minutes is crazy.
  • Not working at all Mar 5, 2021

    By ttyyyyttttt
    I just paid for a subscription today, and after I closed the app wouldn’t load. There would only be a picture on the home page and no comics, and it wouldn’t let me sign out, and it’s not letting me sign back in after deleting the app but continuing my subscription meaning I’m now paying for stories I can’t even read. I’m extremely frustrated since I’ve powered down my phone twice and deleted and re-got the app only to be locked out. And every time I hit the search bar it makes my entire screen go black and won’t let me go back or anything. Help would be appreciated
  • Paying money Mar 14, 2021

    By Izabell Scull⭐️
    Some of these are really good but you have to pay money to continue which really stresses me out. Like I get into it but once I go to the fourth episode you have to pay. That’s ridiculous. I don’t know how you can make a business when all you have to do is pay money just to read a story. I’m not trying to give any hate to this company, but because I have to pay just to read I’m gonna delete the app and download a different app. I’m going to download an app with a five star review that lets you read whatever you want to without paying money because that’s what people want. My apologies if this upsets you but this is pretty ridiculous
  • Why do you have to pay? Mar 5, 2021

    By sss2468
    I read WEBTOON a LOT so I came to this to find more and I found one of my new favorites, “under the oak tree” but when I got to episode/chapter 5 you have to pay!! I don’t have a credit card to pay and I certainly wouldn’t waste my money to skim through and never go back to it again. I think you should design this more like WEBTOON where you can pay to read a chapter earlier than others, but you don’t have to. I really wish you didn’t have to pay cause that made me delete the app, otherwise I would totally recommend it cause there are REALLY good stories.
  • Please read Feb 26, 2021

    By 4839272937492483
    It makes me sad to see that you have to put a price tag on reading. So basically to anyone wondering if your thinking about downloading this app and enjoy, just know that after about 5 episodes/Chapters they will not let you access anymore of the stories unless you pay 3.99 a month for a subscription and I’m sure they add there included endeavors to make it $4 and some change from your bank thats roughly $48 dollars a year to read a swipe down comics. So before you “invest” into this app. Thank you for reading of you did
  • Costs Money Mar 30, 2021

    By Griffen126
    I started a story only to see that you need to pay money monthly just to finish reading it and all I got was the first 4 chapters. This is not a good pleasure reading app. If you want to have the feature to buy chapters in the future fine but at least make it so part of it is free. Like we wait for them to update a free chapter by every set date even if there is more currently up we just have to pay if we want past that one or wait till the next week or something to read the chapter for free.

Today, I was coincidentally advertised to on Instagram with a (pretty corny) ad about “Under the Oak Tree.” Not going to lie, the synopsis wasn’t super great (sorry, marketing person!), but the artwork was gorgeous and I checked out the page before downloading the app. Then, I discovered it’s $3.99 per month for UNLIMITED access to ALL stories. Under the Oak Tree, contrary to what was in the ad, is a phenomenal story so far. I’m addicted, and I’m exploring other comics as well. Thank you for this. You’ve successfully converted me to a paying subscriber. Keep up the great work, and I’m sharing your app with my entire following and my friends!
  • Great app! Apr 10, 2021

    By Tiffany Rule
    Perfect for people who love to read manga and love a range of different types of them. The romance is really blooming and there’s a lot of awesome dramas to pick from and so much more. This app is truly amazing you only pay like five bucks a month and you get at least 100 or so or more even of manga to read. It’s easy to use and easy to learn how to add to your library and such. I don’t know why people are giving this app so much hate but I find it amazing. All the stories are just terrific. I am grateful to have stubbled upon this app. The $5 bucks a month is more than worth it. If you don’t want to pay the five bucks then you’re obviously not gonna get the full potential of this app. But I mean come on five bucks that’s no biggie. I’m a major fan of manga so I find it way worth it. The stories got me laughing, crying, and rooting for the characters. Definitely give it a try I say.
  • Uh...help? Feb 27, 2021

    I saw an ad for this on FB so I downloaded it, but I can’t even create an account. I tap on Continue with Apple and...nothing. Nothing happens. It just sits there. When I tap the App Support link here in the iTunes Store, it just takes me to the front page of the Manta website which also seems to take issue with either my iPad or Safari, I’m not sure which; I can’t scroll to the bottom of the main page and I don’t see anything that looks like a link to customer support at the top. I wanted to read some of these comics but...🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ Can’t seem to get anywhere with the website OR the app. I’ll change my rating if you fix this. 😒😒😒 Edit: I gave up on trying to use “Continue with Apple” and used a google login instead, and that worked. Why is the Apple login offered if it doesn’t work..? Anyways, my comments about the website remain unchanged, and I never heard a peep from support, so...🤷‍♀️ After using the app for a few days my only complaint is as an iPad Pro user. The thing doesn’t use my entire screen like the other comic apps I have. I expanded it from what I assume is the phone version, but it’s still a strip down the middle of my screen with a good two or 3 inches of space on either side. Get with the times, guys. 4 stars since it def ain’t perfect...but I do like paying a subscription fee vs per comic (tho I expect that will severely limit what comics you manage to get for your app).

    In the new update they released they're first novel. So now you have the opportunity to read it with out pictures in more detail, or with pictures! They have only done 1 novel so far, I hope they continue to do more. I think they will start with top stories first then move down the list. I hope they do "The Beau and the Beast" as the next novel
  • So Far So Good Jun 8, 2021

    By yelhsAanaeerB
    I have found quite a few stories so far that I either enjoyed reading in their entirety or am now imaptiently and excitedly waiting for (usually) weekly updates! One complaint, and I hope the developer takes note, is that when looking to find new stories, you can only search one tag at a time. For example, if I want to browse completed stories, I can’t choose to browse completed romance stories or completed drama/romance stories. Why wouldn’t we able to search for stories with any combination of tags? It’s ridiculous to slog through one category at a time when I could be narrowing my search to exactly what I’m looking for, especially if I want to find stories that have already been finished in a genre that I enjoy. This makes finding a new story to immerse myself in, and justify spending a monthly subscription, a real chore.
  • Great app in the making Apr 10, 2021

    By Raccoonavenger
    I’m pleased so far with the app and it’s content, taking into consideration that it is a new app. The interface that exists is clear and easy to use, and the stories and art are high-quality. The English translations are good in particular, I’ve noticed. I also appreciate the value I get for the monthly subscription. Other reviews have already mentioned many of the additions I would recommend to the developers, but I would like to strongly suggest one thing: Please, please, please put a content warning for sexual assault and other sensitive topics (suicide, self-harm, etc.) in the summaries of stories that contain them. The sexual assault was the one I noticed, and I wish I had been warned beforehand. It wouldn’t take much, and it would make many people with experiences with sexual assault, etc. more comfortable and more welcome on your app. Keep up the good work!
  • Really good for a new webtoon app Feb 4, 2021

    By jl8976
    So I know this app is still pretty new, and in my opinion it’s not bad for a new webtoon app. I really like the subscription system and I wished the other webtoon apps like Tappytoon, tapas, and LezhinComics had something similar to that. However, I did notice that some of the webtoons that are available in these other platforms are a little behind in updates on Manta. Like for example on Manta a certain webtoon would still be on hiatus while on the other apps, it has already started updating again. Also, since this is still a new app, the webtoon library is very limited. I am noticing that there is now a ‘Coming Next’ page so I’m excited for that. Overall I think this app has a lot of potential to be big, but to do that the webtoon library would need to be a lot bigger. I look forward to future updates!

    love the app but there aren't many modern romance stories or stories that have schools and stuff so it's not exactly the first app that comes to mind when I'm going to read something

    By Teaireyana Williams
    I really like this app. The only thing missing is a comment section. I wish I can share my love and excitement with others and the author after reading a new chapter.
  • Great Apr 24, 2021

    By IsayYay
    All the reviews leaving one star just because they don’t want to pay are stupid. They need to make money and so do the authors. At $4 a month it is the cheapest option compared to the other apps/sites that require buying coins to unlock each episode, and you can read as much as you want. However, I do hope that Manta considers offering a website only version in the future for the adult smut works such as Totem’s Realm like how Tappytoon/Tapas/Lezhin does. I have no idea why there is an all ages version of this considering how the story goes (would not want a 12 year old to read this lol) and so many of the scenes are cut for obvious reasons. It takes away from the story. Despite this, I am very grateful that we get consistent updates.
  • Umm it’s good but..... May 28, 2021

    By bsjsbbjsnsvgwj
    Here’s the thing..... there are so many amazing stories that I really want to read but every single story I have to pay money to read and that is not what I want to do. I would rather be able to read all of it because that would make me love this app more. It is a great app and I love the stories like my favorite under the oak tree but, I was only aloud to read like 4 episodes that was free out of like 30 something. The rest of the episodes you have to pay for and I don’t like that. To wrap this review up I would say that it is a great app and the stories are amazing, but I wish I didn’t have to pay money for it because how I can’t read my favorite stories and it makes me sad. 😢

    By Sue Bunch
    Many of the titles that they promote are behind a pay wall which can be a bummer. although there are several good stories that are free.
  • Oct 12, 2021

    By Galadreal Simmons
    Good list of comics, but not a fan of the monthly subscription, huge fan of Under The Oak Tree, but would rather go and pay the original writer and download the whole thing.
  • PLEASE READ IT Mar 7, 2021

    By howl with the wolves
    Look I’ve only had this app for a little bit and I’m already annoyed with the fact we can’t finish a story some people don’t have the money for this crap and just want to read at least make it possible to watch an add because so far I have started under the oak tree and the maid and the vampire please read this I’ve fallen in love with the story’s and I can’t finish them and I’m a total book worm so when I start a story I want to finish it and I know you have to make money but the reason I downloaded is so I could read without having to pay please consider my request until this is fixed I can’t read anymore I will look for response and updates as well
  • Ehhh Jun 29, 2021

    By GSlMika_
    The stories are good I won't fight with anyone on that but maybe there could be something like a cheaper way to see the rest of the episodes? Like tickets or tokens or something? Sometimes people can't even buy something like the unlimited reading privilege and most people who can't afford it just simply lose interest. I'm just saying don't take it too hard although the $4 is a reasonable price some people can't really just be like "four bucks? Easy!" sometimes people just lose interest and could probably get irritated that they gotta pay just to get unlimited reading for only like a month-?
  • Login issues after every autorenewal Sep 22, 2021

    By elizaboo14
    I love the app itself; the stories are great and I find myself reading things I might have passed on since they are included in the subscription. My issue that is getting more and more frustrating is that about a week after my auto renewal takes place, I am logged out of the app and it fights me to log back in. Normally after a few tries it will suddenly go thru, but this time it just keeps telling me I have an account using my email and to login using that…which I input that info and I get the same message. Boo. Would be five stars otherwise!
  • Good Storylines but not worth the money if you are reading 1 comic Jun 12, 2021

    By 20/200
    Has comics that have good story lines but if you are reading only 1 comic then it’s not worth it especially if the comic is incomplete. Depending on the comic you might get from 1 chapter per week to 2 chapters a month. Since Im not made of money, I’m just going to end my subscription and wait awhile until the comic is completed. However, if you are reading more than 1 comic then the cost is worth since other platforms/apps require you to pay by the chapter etc.
  • Censored Aug 11, 2021

    By Yaoiamazing
    This app has been very good so far, but my one issue is the censorship. Why are the more adult webtoons censored when we pay specifically to get an official and better quality version of the webtoon? I can understand blurring the nsfw art to stay within censorship laws of other countries, but you completely cut out panels. If you want to keep the app rated for 12+ I’d suggest adding a warning or special filter for nsfw webtoons, so adults can read the full panels.

    Was nice when it advertised free but like everything else it's really not. You have to pay to access the actually decent stories.
  • Having issues with the app and accessing help May 13, 2021

    By orchaic
    I have just subscribed/paid for the app, and although it worked well last night, when trying to access it today nothing loads on any of my pages - they are just blank. It says that I am unsubscribed even though I am - and when I go to subscribe, hoping that will cause things to show up on the app, it tells me I’m subscribed. Each time I try to access help, it takes me to a page that warns me it’s not secure, so I don’t access it. I have tried shutting down my phone, deleting and reinstalling the app, and nothing is working. Any help would be appreciated, and I’ll leave a good review.
  • Great stories… some way too short. Oct 7, 2021

    By Livchelle
    I wish you guys would enforce a mandatory panel length update. For Tomb of The Great Swords, it seems awesome, however for literally the last three weeks the authors have posted 25 panels each update. 25 is a good median. The most recent one was a whopping 29 panels. It almost feels like a cartoon and is really agitating. Considering we pay to “binge”, I’d like to be able to binge stories. I understand some works may have less contributors than others, so if they need to take more time to produce their work, they should. But to take a week to make something that can be read in under 2 minutes is crazy.
  • Not working at all Mar 5, 2021

    By ttyyyyttttt
    I just paid for a subscription today, and after I closed the app wouldn’t load. There would only be a picture on the home page and no comics, and it wouldn’t let me sign out, and it’s not letting me sign back in after deleting the app but continuing my subscription meaning I’m now paying for stories I can’t even read. I’m extremely frustrated since I’ve powered down my phone twice and deleted and re-got the app only to be locked out. And every time I hit the search bar it makes my entire screen go black and won’t let me go back or anything. Help would be appreciated
  • Why do you have to pay? Mar 5, 2021

    By sss2468
    I read WEBTOON a LOT so I came to this to find more and I found one of my new favorites, “under the oak tree” but when I got to episode/chapter 5 you have to pay!! I don’t have a credit card to pay and I certainly wouldn’t waste my money to skim through and never go back to it again. I think you should design this more like WEBTOON where you can pay to read a chapter earlier than others, but you don’t have to. I really wish you didn’t have to pay cause that made me delete the app, otherwise I would totally recommend it cause there are REALLY good stories.
  • Oct 11, 2021

    By Marianne Chadwick
    Generally it could be a great app but I am disappointed to see certain stories such as "Under the Oak Tree" have such poorly done translations that the English is unreadable and makes it impossible to follow the plot.
  • Paying money Mar 14, 2021

    By Izabell Scull⭐️
    Some of these are really good but you have to pay money to continue which really stresses me out. Like I get into it but once I go to the fourth episode you have to pay. That’s ridiculous. I don’t know how you can make a business when all you have to do is pay money just to read a story. I’m not trying to give any hate to this company, but because I have to pay just to read I’m gonna delete the app and download a different app. I’m going to download an app with a five star review that lets you read whatever you want to without paying money because that’s what people want. My apologies if this upsets you but this is pretty ridiculous
  • Please read Feb 26, 2021

    By 4839272937492483
    It makes me sad to see that you have to put a price tag on reading. So basically to anyone wondering if your thinking about downloading this app and enjoy, just know that after about 5 episodes/Chapters they will not let you access anymore of the stories unless you pay 3.99 a month for a subscription and I’m sure they add there included endeavors to make it $4 and some change from your bank thats roughly $48 dollars a year to read a swipe down comics. So before you “invest” into this app. Thank you for reading of you did
  • Costs Money Mar 30, 2021

    By Griffen126
    I started a story only to see that you need to pay money monthly just to finish reading it and all I got was the first 4 chapters. This is not a good pleasure reading app. If you want to have the feature to buy chapters in the future fine but at least make it so part of it is free. Like we wait for them to update a free chapter by every set date even if there is more currently up we just have to pay if we want past that one or wait till the next week or something to read the chapter for free.
