Mangadex is a popular online scanlation site, currently in early access after being taken down and rebuilt for greater security.



Mangadex is a site popular with both readers and scanlators of manga in the late 2010s and early 2020s. Readers appreciate the lack of advertisements, while scanlators appreciate the agency given to them by the site, as unlike many other manga-reading sites online Mangadex only allows the upload of scanlations by the creators of the scanlation or authorized reposters instead of reposting scanlations without the scanlator's permission. Mangadex also caters to all languages.[1]


Hacking and downtime period

On March 21, 2021, Mangadex announced a period of downtime until further notice due to a hack four days prior.[2] On May 6, Mangadex announced a beta phase open to the public for testing.[3]
