It would be sweet to be able to read it in the original language, since I do read Japanese and it's good to keep the language up. I don't know if that will be possible, though.

I do want to support this endeavor since I think it's really the right way to be going for everybody involved. I don't actually mind not being able to see old chapters since the volumes often can be purchased as e-books anyway. Unfortunately, the price per month is just way too expensive for a limited number of titles from just one publication company. I know it would be very difficult to raise the price on current subscribers later if they are able to get more titles, but I personally will not subscribe at this time.

(Also, If I'm not mistaken, isn't Yamada-kun at least a week behind the Magazine publication?)

You guys should offer more flexible membership categories for the three main services Crunchy offers: Anime, Drama, and Manga. I, for example, am an anime viewer and manga reader, but care little for dramas, so I will not be purchasing the full membership.

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who thinks there should be a membership that includes only anime and manga for a bit more than the Anime membership, but a bit less than the Full membership.

I'll be sticking with the anime membership till something like what I described above happens, hopefully someday!

P.S.: VERY proud on the addition of a Manga service to the site, BTW. Kudos, and I hope your marketing department takes suggestionss like these into account!

This is why I originally came on to CR on an older account around 2005-2006. Then Manga went down, and anime and drama were the core.

I'm so glad ya'll are bringing this back!

Bjaker said it in another thread to use that same request thread in the premium members forum. I know I got some to request myself (like Chihayafuru)!


Chihayafuru....AMEN TO THIS ONE

I'd love it if you'd put up the raw manga as well, lots of people use Crunchyroll when learning Japanese and it would be another way to do it.

Pretty annoyed with the manga service so far. My issues are:

1. I only read a couple of the titles available and one of them is missing 23 volumes and doesn't include any bonus chapters (A Town Where You Live).
2. I can't check out the iPad app without paying in advance, as it requires all access.
3. There doesn't appear to be a comments section for individual volumes or even chapters.
4. There should be some more info on each title, specifically how often and when new chapters become available.
5. I'm not thrilled with the pricing either, as I don't watch dramas, but I could live with it for a quality service.

I hope these issues get addressed. I think that this is a great idea that, atm, is being poorly executed.

I like it so far but there are a few features I'd like to see added. I use the website and Android App so I'm not sure how the others are.

-Notification when new content comes available for your favorites Kinda like how Queue works for the videos.
-Something to tell you what chapters you've already read. Maybe just grey the text of chapters read or something along those lines.
-On the Android app, an option to keep the screen from timing out / device going to sleep. AKA keep alive
-save username and password and Auto logon (Android)

-The rest of the chapters for Attack on Titan not just the last few.

New app (IPod app) update for this crashes every time its opened (as does the new main site app). Is a fix for this in the works?

My issue lies in the fact that some chapters (Fairy Tail) are as of me writing this message almost a week behind scanlations (to me at least)...

I wouldn't have minded waiting maybe a day or even two but almost a week is ridiculous... It is hardly a 'simulpub" now is it?

The only excuse I can think of is that scanlators are getting their raws a week ahead of release but that doesn't seem right to me.

New update to the iPad app still doesn't fix the problem where pages are cropped at the top and bottom, e.g. MGX. In fact it's worse as you can't zoom out any more. Really sloppy work, hope there is a proper fix soon.
