Hey guys! I was just wondering about a couple of things and had maybe an idea.

First, what about modeling the updated tab along the lines of the anime version, with release date on the hover over, and stuff... technical verbiage etc...

Secondly, I'm curious about the missing volumes in ATWYL and Yamada. Any plans on placing those on CR? If so, any kind of ETA?

Have just heard back from the Manga team:

Q) First, what about modeling the updated tab along the lines of the anime version, with release date on the hover over, and stuff... technical verbiage etc...
A) Updated tab is available as a sub-tab, just like Anime.
B) Release date will be added to each Series detail page, right above the description, if next simul chapter information is available. The coming soon list has been added, with improvements in the near future.

Q) Secondly, I'm curious about the missing volumes in ATWYL and Yamada. Any plans on placing those on CR? If so, any kind of ETA?
A) A Town Where You Live (ATWYL) and Yamada have long list of untranslated volumes, and we are working everyday to get this out as fast as possible. Unfortunately, we don't have any ETA on this, but will try to add some functionality on the site to let the users know when the new volumes are added.

I'll post it here, but Crunchyroll recently added 10 more backchapters to Space Brothers so now that is up to Chapter 119 in addition to Chapters 220 to 222.

So yeah Crunchyroll is definately working on those backchapters.

The problem with the Updated tab is that it doesn't work. UQ Holder doesn't show up in it at all, and the order of the titles that show up there seems unrelated to which added chapters recently.

The updated tab is working a bit better now, but it seems that things like adding the placeholder for a new chapter also count as "updating". I am glad to see more old volumes (A Town Where You Live 22, Coppelion 9-11). It would be nice if those sorts of things showed up under the Coming Soon/Just Updated sidebar.

Um... will Crunchyroll release the large number of missing chapters from Space Brothers, Coppelion, and Mysterious Girlfriend X soon? And when will Crunchyroll be announcing more titles? I read on the ANN article that Crunchyroll plans to to expand to 50 titles by next summer is this still the case?

They will be added, but I have no idea how long it will take. Coppelion seems to be being added the fastest, maybe because it's the least wordy? I suspect that it depends on how fast the translators and editors work. According to twitter accounts, the Coppelion translator is still working on it, so that will probably continue to update as it has been. For Space Brothers, I'm not sure who the current translator is, since the credited translator has said that he only did the first 6 volumes: https://twitter.com/WilliamFlanagan/status/396431907426025472
Mysterious Girlfriend X does not have a credited translator, and I don't think any old volumes have been added since it was first put on the site, so that one might take a while to update.

I definitely share your impatience, since I like all of those titles. I'm also hoping that no chapters of Attack on Titan get taken down before volume 11 is released in English, so that I can actually catch up.
Also: Coppelion 107 pg 11 still has the margins on it, as does at least some of the latest chapter.

Edit: 50 titles by the summer still seems possible, but I also remember seeing somewhere that they were aiming for 20 titles by the end of the year, which probably won't happen.

Another suggestion:

Can the updated manga be added to the home page like Anime Simulcasts and All New Drama/Anime? It would be great to be able to navigate to the show/read of choice from the homepage! And separating them graphically would be fancy...
