We bet you didn’t see this coming, but lo and behold, a bold new frontier at Crunchyroll.com has just opened up and the future is BRIGHT…

Introducing… CRUNCHYROLL COMICS



At CRUNCHYROLL COMICS, users like YOU will be able to upload and share their very own graphic storytelling creations.

Unlike other sites where people go to read comics online, CRUNCHYROLL COMICS was created to natively support comics, and offers artists and readers a lot of cool options for how works can be read and presented. Want to read one page at a time? No problem! Want two-page landscape mode? You got it! And best of all, it’s free to use!



So get thee now to CRUNCHYROLL COMICS and check out some of the local talent to be found at this virtual “Artists Alley”, which includes special section devoted to ComiPo! Manga Creation Software and a new work by Jason Thompson (author of the “King of RPGS” graphic novels and the book “Manga: The Complete Guide”).

Jason says of CRUNCHYROLL COMICS...

I've been waiting for Crunchyroll to get into the manga side of Asian pop fandom, and they've finally taken the plunge…. not by licensing manga, but by going a potentially much more interesting route. CRUNCHYROLL COMICS features an easy-to-use interface and some very cool tools to let anyone make guided-view (or traditional) digital comics. It has the potential to be the next deviantart for aspiring manga artists, and to make Crunchyroll as big a player in online comics as they are in anime.




How can YOU get involved in CRUNCHYROLL COMICS? Well, right now, the site is welcoming selected creators and submissions, and will be open to many more users in the future. If you are a comics creator who would like to publish your works at CRUNCHYROLL COMICS, you can apply immediately at:

Thanks and please support and enjoy user-created comics and graphic storytelling at Crunchyroll!

It's just for user posting comics? Crunchyroll Comics makes it sound like it will be user submitted comics. Since there is already a manga site.

Nice but I'm curious, is CR ever planning on releasing official manga for its users to read here from official series? Ex. Blue Exorcist, GE: Good Ending, A Town Where You Live, etc.

So, does this mean Crunchyroll will eventually allow users to read "official" manga online? You know, kind of like fan-lation only not done by fans but by CR: Crunchlations?

I would certainly love the idea of having high quality and "legal" translated scans of official mangas. I would also love the idea of having another weekly queue for just manga.
To really make this website expand, it would behoove the people of Crunchyroll to license the same mangas as the anime they already stream.
But this would be difficult with manga like Naruto, Bleach, or Fairy Tail as they are already licensed by Viz Media in the US.
It would work great with Medaka Box because it does not have any official english licensing.
