I have activated free premium membership for 14 days

I watched few series on CR, the quality was good. I enjoyed them really.

So, yesterday i thought i would check manga on CR,
I checked them, there were hardly any main manga while CR advertises ALL MANGA
-HxH
-One piece
-Kenichi
There are too many -_-
=======================================

I really don't know much about license stuff.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
What i think is after using it for a while is, either CR should add more main manga or they should STOP ADVERTISING AS ALL MANAGA availabe.
It might be stated in terms somewhere, i really didnt bother reading them.

Okay, so while typing this, i do realize many satisfied customers might feel offended (ITS A BIG WORLD)

But hey, i enjoyed the anime services. I think you guys should comment your opinion
What do you think?

Well thanks anyway, i had some free time so i created this thread.

I've moved this over to Suggestions Feedback.

The "Compare Plans" page is the only place I'm aware that Crunchyroll explicitly says "All Manga"--though I guess there could be other messaging that goes out that's designed to compare the premium membership to the free membership and it would probably mention that as well, as a comparison point. If that's what you are talking about, I believe it should be clear both from reasonableness and context that by "All Manga" Crunchyroll means all manga that Crunchyroll has licensed, not all manga that exists or ever existed. There is definitely wordage in various places indicating that content availability is subject to license/region restrictions. While that seems to be primarily there to indicate that just because Crunchyroll has a show in one region there's no guarantee it's available in another, it's also relevant in that if Crunchyroll doesn't have a license for something for any region, then it wouldn't be available here at all for anyone.

I assume you are talking about the wording on the Premium Comparison page... Well, yes, it technically should say this:

Access All (Available) Manga

But that's no different than what's above: "Access all Anime and Drama" It's the same thing there, the word "Available" is implied. They can't possibly have everything, even if everything was all out there back to the early 1900's to pick up (and it definitely isn't, much has been lost, or is incomplete, let alone not having permission to show) so, you should be cynical when you see a claim like that, and check out the list of what they do have first, to see if that much is worth it to you.

Having said that, much of the small selection of Manga they do have is going to shrink soon, because one publisher is pulling the "free to distribute" portion of their licensing at the end of the month, and many completed titles will instead be put behind a paywall in one of the apps, so this isn't really a good place to subscribe if all you are interested in is Manga. Not for Live Drama shows, either. Both of those (mostly) contain leftovers from attempts they made in the past to expand, and they eventually didn't work out the way they thought they would. This site is mainly for Anime, and anything else should merely be considered as bonus content on top of that; those other media types don't stand on their own.

when it says "All Manga", it clearly meant "All available manga that CR has the right to provide as a service to its customers"
Manga isn't CR strongest point but more like a bonus feature for paying customers. it's a side dish that accompanies the main course.
if you're serious about manga, there's other services which you can use to read manga in digital form - but nowhere as cheap as CR offering.

license costs money. having every manga series and every anime series currently airing and all anime aired in the past 10 years, all for $5 a month. that would be a pipe dream.

Everything is pipe dream until its done. Right?

Everything costs mone .

To be frank i used to watch anime on streaming sites like[site that shall not be named], and i still do if its not available in my region,

I stand between supporting and not supporting anime community currently.

For unavaailabe manga i have no other choice than free service sites

I cant express much in words.
But i hope you know where iim getting.
------------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT -----
So, maybe add a few bucks extra?
License few more main manga or a joint service with VIZ

Like maybe, you select what series you want to read for a month if it costs too much

For example-
Give choices to select manga maybe like 3 or 4 as per moonthly quota.

I have it clear it in my mind.\Its a pain to type too much nvm
