Hello--manga lover here
I will be getting my Sony Reader in a week or two. I have been reading the forums and wiki to learn the best way to convert my massive Japanese manga collection from decaying paper books to portable and readable ebooks.
My main concern is whether or not the furigana (those teeny tiny characters that tell you which reading to give the kanji) will be legible. Once I have the device in hand, I will probably be back (to the proper forum) to ask questions.

You'll find a fair manga lovers here, I lean more toward plain American comic books myself.

It definitely will not be legible in portrait mode, though if properly distilled through the various utilities here, you should be able to see it in landscape mode. Get used to half-page reading though.
If you haven't read up on the alternatives for fixing up your scans, check out Rasterfarian, PDFRead, JE-Comics Creator, and possibly libprs500 for a start. You might be able to create your own PDF's in Acrobat using the guide provided by Sony, but you'll get better contrast & sharpness using one, or a combination, of the tools mentioned above.
