Does anyone know of a method to download Kindle manga from Amazon.jp as JPG or PDF files? I know of a method to use for BookWalker, but I'm unsure if the same method would work for the Amazon Kindle reader app ect. I'm attempting to rip RAWs to use for a new scanlation project and would rather be able to rip everything easily and in good quality rather than have to screenshot every page individually and then do editing/upscaling.

Okay, so this is my DUMB Explanation on how to RIP RAWS from Amazon. I can't guarantee reliability for this tutorial but somehow and I don't know how, it works for me. Hopefully it works for you too, so you won't feel like you wasted your time reading this DUMB Tutorial hahaha.

Amazon Japan
Use A VPN(Japan) when you "Add to your Library for Free" from Amazon to Kindle.
Kindle Download
Go to HERE, Download and run "kindle_noKFX.bat"
Go to HERE, Download and run "disable k4pc download.bat"
Calibre
DeDRM

PS: If this doesn't work just google "Kindle to Calibre".

Preferences -> Plugins -> Get new plugins -> KFX Input / Output

Try installing these two (KFX Input/Output), While you're there, check if you have "DeACSM" and "EpubSplit" Installed, If not then Install it.
(What Manga are you trying to RIP on this Run? Hope it's not paid)

UPDATE!

Sorry my bad, I've done this last year so that's why I think I mixed up the link???
Anyway,

*Uninstall your latest Kindle.

*Delete the directory C:\Users\(Your User Account)\Documents\My Kindle Content.
(Delete all of what you've downloaded)

*Install this Version of Kindle "Version 2.3.0.70673".
After Installation and User Sign in, Go to Options, Uncheck the Automatic Updates, Close Kindle.
Here's the LINK (My Dropbox) (Run some antivirus if you're a bit Paranoid)

*Go to HERE, Download and run "kindle_noKFX.bat".
(A prompt will open, then Kindle will automatically Run, wait for the prompt to complete, Close Kindle)

*Go to HERE, Download and run "disable k4pc download.bat".
(Same as the as before, A prompt will open, then Kindle will automatically Run, wait for the prompt to complete, Close Kindle)

*Run Kindle, Download a test Chapter/Series.

*Run Calibre, locate the the test Chapter/Series. If done right the series should be in AZW3 format instead of KFX.

Do the rest of what that DUMB Tutorial is saying. (You can convert the output into .ZIP instead of EPUB)

Cheers and I hope for your success!!!
