I agree that would be awesome. Anime & Manga go hand in hand, you cannot be complete with one and not the other.

Personally I hope it never happens. I, for one, am a bibliophile. I love the feel of a nice paper book in my hands, the smell of fresh ink and an old musty cloth bound book. The more digital options come up (ie kindle, nook, ipad, free or paid websites etc) the more physical sales will plummet . Eventually physical sales will drop so low they will not be able to support the operating costs and have to shut down manufacturing as we have seen with so many newspapers, shonen jump and plenty of other sources. The decrease in physical sales, combined with a continuously slipping economy is what was responsible for so many book stores closing down. To preserve the future of books I for one stand against this.

"But it saves me money and I like the convenience!" I don't care what you like or what makes your life easier. Books are a huge part of my life and i wish to preserve that.

Though I love reading with an actual book in my hand, I find manga/LN to be too expensive to buy most of the time. So if they were to add manga to this site I would be really happy.

It would be cool, but they won't come free. CR would have to charge AT LEAST a dollar for every new chapter or add it to their premium membership. Then that is not gonna be fair for the people who don't have the premium membership!

I would also like to add, It's nice to have one less thing that clings me to my computer. I'm doing my best to try to stay away from my computer as much as possible but in the end this is really difficult. I know that if I have a physical copy of a GN/LN I can use this to escape the tight grasp my computer holds me with.

Here´s just a suggestion but lets just say what if here.
Maybe there is a possibility crunchyroll could work something out wit fan sub-er groups that they as a group receive a bit of cash to their next manga purchase for subbing purposes for allowing CR to post their work up on the site, with possibly a really good manga viewing system for an extra cost like the anime system. This will allow the creators and publishers to receive cash that would have been otherwise lost to the illegal web sites, this may seem like a losing cause for money but if u consider the people reading for free anyway, true fans will want to support their favorite mangas, on said illegal sites i always see Comments with people telling publishers to continue the great job but they dont realize their hurting the creators unintentionally this might allow for the waters to easy over a bit with Fan-subbers and Publisher&creators.

I would happily pay a few extra euros every month to watch manga on CR because I know I would support the people who make them.

If they do put it here (again), they better fix the image size right. There were times a manga page was blown out of the screen, where you were not only scrolling up and down, but also scrolling left and right. Thus, we have to consider the traffic and fansubbers.
