Do you think Crunchyroll would be better if it has mangas?

Well, thanks for the update then. You just managed to make me sigh in relief and put my hopes in seeing people's favorite manga series arrive here. [All I've got left to get pissed off about is this week's Kuroshitsuji II's episode, but that's an entirely different story]

I hate to say this but its still unknown what will come. will it be the most popular ones like Naruto Bleach and One Piece or more unknown and unheard of titles or what about older series or maybe mature titles like Gantz.. its all still unclear, but hopefully there will be a great selection and everyones favorite titles.

I'm sure they've thought of this. Don't think you're Einstein just because you may be the first one to point it out( which i doubt). Sorry, its just my opinion

It had to be removed because of copyright issues. I remember when I first signed up, there was manga here. It's gone now.

I was thinking about this not too long ago actually. I would really love it CR started hosting manga on this site. Like, it would be really awesome if they somehow created a deal with the manga companies here and in japan to host manga scans on here.

I guarantee that if something like this happened, I would immediately sign up for premium membership. I wouldn't even think twice about it. There needs to be a legal, compensatory source to get manga from, it would benefit pretty much everyone. This move to take down aggregate sites may very well hurt the industry than help it. Chances are that there will be more casual readers who will lose interest, refuse to pay for material publications, or lose the means to learn about manga that they would potentially like than there are people who will decide to start buying legal manga because of this.

There must be an online, digital business model that can work for everyone.

Get to it shinji, use your powers of awesomeness!

Not only would it be awesome for fans and CR but of course the artists to. Their primary paying readership and market is concentrated in Japan and neighboring Asian nations. Letting CR release licensed manga expands their market across the world. Publishers would be dumb not to get this done. I currently read scanlations online not primarily because they're free but because I can't go to my local comic book shop to get fresh manga when it's initially released, I can only read and speak Japanese like a three-year-old, and no one is making it available legally online. I would gladly pay to read manga online and support the artists that work so hard to bring us our fave manga every week.

Well, assuming they can get all the ones that were out wouldn't it have been easier to get some of the people from the sites being taken down to help with layout and stuff? Or maybe use some of the better ideas used. If they did, we could have more of the manga that aren't "mainstream" make it over here based on people's interests. Like how OM had the top 10 most popular shojo, shounen, and other section and then they were listed in order of popularity. I think it would be a more profitable option since the internet is faster than any surveys we could send in. Even during the recession stuff, us otaku are wiling to do quite a bit for our passion. lol. I'd pay to get the digital copy and print copy but hey who am i. Hopefully, they'll take notice of some of the ideas posted. Can't wait to see what this "OpenManga" site looks like. Good Luck, Shinji. You're our only hope.
