They did, it was called jmanga.com The site failed so hard they shut it down. Yes, this site was run by the Crunchyroll team.

I'd like it for legal reasons, yeah. I read manga on the translators' websites, but even though those are better than the other ones I'd be nice to actually read them completely legally.

I would like to see official translations of things not in print, instead of the the awful image quality and "all your base are belong to us" quality translations on scanlation sites. That would be good.

Crunchyroll does a great job of expanding it's line up and keeping great titles available for a minimal fee. To watch and not contribute is shameful. If they were to expand into Manga titles they should do so for a fee. In fact the view for free thing should end even if it's a suggested donation of some sort. For crying out loud the ten year old three doors down from me has ten bucks in his pocket on any given day. Take some responsibility for your viewership.

About J-Manga: I think if Crunchyroll could add manga, and run in the same way it runs its anime (adding a "manga premium" membership, and also adding it to "All Access" (maybe raise the price a few bucks), then it would be much more accepting and successful. . J-manga system wasn't necessarily the best, even if Crunchyroll was apart of it. They should also mix a few uncommon manga (at least for the English world) with popular/up and coming ones, to mix it up, and attract a manga crowd. From what I remember, J-manga didn't have too many popular series, and I think that also didn't help it. I think there needs to be a few to entice readers to join. BUT, I may have remembered that wrong, I was only a free member on J-Manga.

Also, yes, I realize lots of legal issues and all that bs is involved, this is just *MY* opinion.

I saw the comic's section of Crunchyroll and i was wondering what if Crunchyroll started to let it's members read their favorite manga just like one can read some comics in their comic section, It is a really big part of Anime so why haven't they yet? What do ya think? Show your support by responding maybe we can make this happen ^_^


That would be a really awesome addition to the CR community, though with that would come alot of additional maintenance an work. I guess they would also have to purchase licences for some of the manga, though it comes to question with the paying members an other services CR offers could they afford the extra finances, that would follow based on the fact of new employees, maintenance an licences not to mention the extras we don't know about.

But do agree 100% would be AMAZING =] =] =]

With regards to J-Manga, I would prefer a service where I could pay a flat rate to read whatever I want. Just like here.

I wish they would. It would make the jump into reading manga a lot easier for us who don't.

that would be a good addition, they should totally consider it. although i prefer reading the actual tankoubon, i read certain manga online, and if CR added the right titles, i would definitely use it.
