I'm an All-Access member. On the Crunchyroll website I can see 12 manga titles available. In the iOS app I can only see 10 titles.

A Town Where You Live is missing, as well as As The Gods Will.

The first thing I wanted to do after seeing this was to add the manga to my favorites, or place a bookmark, in the web-based viewer, and then see if it would show up in my favorites or bookmarks in the iOS app. However, the web-based viewer doesn't have favorites or bookmarks, which is a frustrating discrepancy. With anime I currently add shows to my queue from my laptop, and then I watch it on my iPad or Xbox. I was hoping I could do the same thing with manga.

I can understand things like favorites still having some kinks to work out, since the service is still new.

I'm having a harder time understanding why a couple of series are missing, with no notifications about why they're not available on other platforms.

An email was sent out mentioning A Town Where You Live, so I went to check the app, but it's still not showing up there.

Edit: Nevermind the login issue, seems to be fixed on the version for Nov 26. The manga titles I mentioned in the OP are still missing, though.

My guess is that those two titles may not be allowed because of Apple's terms and conditions. They may be considered too adult, but I don't know if that makes any sense, since I am not familiar with either one. That explanation does not account for the very violent Fort of the Apocalypse which is available, or the fact that you can watch Queen's Blade through the iOS app. The other explanation is that it is an issue with the Japanese company, and someone there doesn't want them available on mobile devices for whatever reason. I would be interested to know whether those two titles are available on the Android app.

Is there anything that can be done about this?

The main title I'm interested in is A Town Where You live. As someone who only reads digital manga on the iPad (I like to sit down, tablet in hand, pull my legs under the blanket and just read for hours), I currently don't have a legit option for following this series.
