I've started reading UQ Holder, The Seven Deadly Sins, and Yamada-kun.

And they're all great :3 Pleasantly surprised. Good pick ups CR!

I do find it strange that I like the iPhone app so much more than the web interface. I guess they're working on it... If they had a standard zoom setting, with a page scroll (not page change) button, that would be great.

Anyone know if the Seven Deadly Sins is decent? That's one of only 2 manga series I haven't been following from the ones available on CR so far.

It's actually an amazing manga. One of the most popular that CR got.

The first chapter was more than good enough for me. The artwork and the setting are great. I'll be reading more.

The manga reader, at least on PC, is extremely disappointing right now. The scans aren't as clean as many of the pirated ones and the reader itself is inferior. Unless you have eagle vision, good luck reading them as the manga pages are extremely small. The reader doesn't even fill the page - there's a ton of space around it.


There's a full screen toggle in the lower right corner of the reader.

I'm not liking that the reader doesn't retain the same zoom level when you change pages, nor that the scroll wheel controls page turns. I'd prefer to read in single-page view with the image zoomed to cover the entire width of the screen, and then use the scroll wheel to pan down the page. Failing that, it'd be nice if I could use the up and down arrows on my keyboard to move around the page.


Maybe for people with manga/all-access passes. As soon as I open the page the options on the bottom right all vanish and I have no ability to full screen the manga. Which means that you're paying an extra $4.99 to basically be able to full screen the page.

Yes, zoom vanished for me too and I'm on a premium member trial. Although I find the pages to be big enough for me.
You could try your browser's zoom, that might help.

I'm a bit so-so on this already. I was really in favor of the manga reader and I think the titles are great, but I just feel a bit disappointed that even w/ a premium membership, you can't get more than the latest page. I realize it maybe publishing/legal issues but it kinda sucks. I must have read it all wrong, because I was under the impression that as long as you were a subscription member you would get more than the latest page, while the free members would only get the latest chapter.

An alternative that u guys could try, which is what I'm gonna have to do since I don't have a full access membership, is to not use the "full screen toggle" in the lower right corner, but instead use the full screen mode on your browser (F11 for Firefox), then Zoom In and Out using "Control +" or "Control -", respectively. Doing this, I was able to achieve something close to the ideal full page/fit to screen or whatever. It also maintains the same zoom level when u go to another page. Here's a couple examples of what I was able to get:



This is probably a better example (since it fits the entire page in, but doesn't quite fit the width of the screen, but it's close):

You need All-Access Membership. I've cleared your account so you can sign up for a new free trial but it will only be 14 days for All-Access.

So just cancel your current trial from here:
https://www.crunchyroll.com/acct/?action=status
Then sign up for All-Access:
https://www.crunchyroll.com/freetrial

Though the whole needing full manga access to full screen is weird as there is no mention to the user that the options exist in any capacity before getting full manga access.

As far as I understand things, posting a single screenshot in that context is fair use. (If you were to post an entire chapter, it would be a not allowable thing.)

Thanks for the help, I canceled the current trial but I won't be signing up for another one just yet, will do it at another time.

Sigh...only recently bought my Anime Membership here and I am not signing up for full access as I don't want the drama side and the manga doesn't make it that worthwhile. Just another way for a buisness to make more money tbh...

I almost think people with Anime Membership should have access to the Manga temporary as it requires me to upgrade, Don't even get to experience a trial to see if I like it or not.

Would it be possible to add some more manga to the current list we have available on Crunchyroll? I'm happy that we have Fairy Tail available. It would be awesome to see monster musume no iru nichijou and the entire Rosario+Vampire seasons 1+ 2 manga avaible on crunchyroll as well.
