Jmanga is currently only available to people in the USA and Canada. There's nothing we can do about that since that was determined by a different company.

Does this picture indicate that One Piece will be there?


Yep One Piece will be on there.

Edit: Actually, I might be wrong. So nvm.

Hopefully we will not be limited to just the "Big 3" mangas but much more. I'd prefer it if CR could get seinen works.


I hope so too. I like a lot of seinen titles.



We've got a section dedicated for Seinen as well as a few other sections for different genres.

This is awesome news! I already applied for the beta, so now I just have to hope that I get lucky enough to be chosen to use it. If not then I'll just have to wait a little longer.

Ah, that is good news, thanks BasouKazuma! I have a few questions.


Will we be able to link our CR accounts to the site when it's made public? It seems that there will be a pay-to-view option for some mangas . Can we bundle a payment for both manga and anime membership (if the answer to the first question is yes)?

Now I'm getting more excited for this site.

Hey guys,
As you know, we've been working with Japanese partners to create an official platform for reading manga online. Today, we are opening the site, called JManga, to select users for closed beta testing.

If you are into reading Manga, and live in North America, apply now for your chance to join this closed beta.

We'll be taking your feedback to help improve the service for the official launch hopefully sometime later this year.

Apply now to join the closed beta testing! After you sign up, we will grant access to a handful of users, and notify them via email first week of July.

~ Shinji



Is it OK if I'm not live in North America?
*Btw, I live in (South East) Asia

Signed up!

This will be quite the cool development if you guys can have a sort of manga simulcast so that I can finally keep up with the serializations instead of waiting for the compiled volumes to come out.

I'll be a day one member if this has Bleach and Naruto. This could be pretty cool. I signed up for CR when you guys first started doing subscriptions and I was basically here solely for Naruto but I found a bunch of other shows via the site afterwards. I'm interested in seeing if the same will happen for manga.

Well, Crunchyroll is based in America.
Open Manga is based in Europe & Japan.

I'm really happy to see this next step in manga distribution.

So, is this apart of Crunchyroll, or will it be a separate subscription?

it will most likely be a separate subscription, but I am hoping that they will offer a special discount to current CR subscribers.

I also signed up and I hope that I will get selected to beta test this new service
