Another place to read mangas in India is “The Japan Foundation” in New Delhi. The Japan Foundation has a separate library section for Manga with over 1500 series collections in it. This is one of the few bookstores in Delhi where you can lay your hands on some of the best Japanese Manga.
It is a library open to the public, who lives in Delhi & NCR only. Membership costs just Rs.300 for a year. Its extensive collection covers materials on Japan written in various languages. It also has the latest Japanese magazines and newspapers along with manga. There is a Manga Cafe inside that is open with no time restriction.

Another way to buy manga through online in India is ComicClans.com. It is an online comic book store in India which sells manga. In addition to Manga, you can also buy Indian comic books, DC comic books, Vertigo comic books, Garfield comic books and Archie comics.
They even procure manga which is not within their library on request. They have a good customer support which is accessible to people once on the website. The best thing about them is you could even contact them through mail and they will respond positively.
Another way to buy manga in India is Flipkart. Flipkart has some of the Manga at cheap prices but unfortunately the collections available in it are really low and choice of selection is low.
Discounts are really good in Flipkart but very random for different Volumes. Top Mangas like Onepiece, Naruto, Dragon Ball etc are usually available all the times but most of the series isn’t available as Set boxes. Do search all the collections available to choose the cheapest ones.
Leaping Windows, Mumbai

You can take either a monthly membership or read from their collection at the library itself. They also provide a hourly basis allowance to use the library incase you don’t want to get a membership.
