That's impossible. Ability isn't a manga, it's a webtoon published for free on naver.


Say what? This is purely a technical thing. Has nothing to do with other series or webcomics.


Now this is just a guess mind you, but I think he's saying "Ability" is a webtoon. Of course, I could be completely wrong. (and you might have already caught on to that lol)


And about the new Manga's... all I can say is YAY! Glad to see CR grab a title for simupub at the very start.

Yep, that was a total misunderstanding on my part, sorry about that.

I'ts great to see Crunchyroll to get more mangas, I read the first chapter of Okitenemuru and it seems really interesting. I will definitly keep reading this and recommend it for others to read.

The plot for Startlight woman on the other hand didn't seem so interesting, but I will give it a try once Crunchyroll get the earlier chapters running.

I hope Crunchyroll keeps on adding more and more mangas and making it easier to legally read mangas! :)

Best of luck Crunchyroll!

I appreciate the new manga, however could you guys work on proper page placement? As in knowing which one is supposed to be on the right and left, so that two page spreads aren't broken in half, and so the spine area ends up in the middle.

You guys don't seem to have broken pages anymore, but it ruins the experience when pages aren't placed properly.

For example, as of me typing this, the first chapter of Okitenemuru
http://www.crunchyroll.com/comics_read/manga?volume_id=635&chapter_num=1.00
suffers from this.

The problem is easily solved by placing a blank white page on the right, prior to the chapter. You guys put a blank white page in fron of the Yamada manga, chapter 89 and 88.
http://www.crunchyroll.com/comics_read/manga?volume_id=219&chapter_num=89.00
http://www.crunchyroll.com/comics_read/manga?volume_id=219&chapter_num=88.00
It makes sense because most chapters begin on the left page of a magazine.

If you read those chapters, you'll see those have the white spine area, properly in the middle, and two page spreads would load properly.
I've said this to customer service so many times, that I've almost given up.

In terms of Futabasha manga, can you guys get the rights to Crayon Shin-Chan and Lupin III, please? In terms of Kodansha manga, I'd like to see Domu, Legend of Mother Sarah, Tokyo SOS Explorers, and Cromartie High. Oh, and Fuyumi Soryo's stuff, too.

Really happy to hear that "Is this Girl for Real?! " is coming to CR. In the other side, I really wish that series started with chapter 1 but I guess I will have to wait.

Was hoping the next would be sports not an ecchi romance. But looking forward to those three other manga coming.

I was very pleased when I read this bit on Crunchyroll's latest press release:


Effective immediately, all Kodansha manga titles on the service, including ATTACK ON TITAN, FAIRY TAIL, SPACE BROTHERS and more, are now available to be read in English in the following 14 countries, bringing the availability to over 180 countries - Italy, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Finland, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, Viet Nam, Hong Kong/Macau, Malaysia, China, Brazil and Mexico.

Though these titles are still unavailable for me at the moment, (Edit: They're available now!) I'm very excited about finally being able to read them here! There's also a tip about the (probably) upcoming announcements:


Crunchyroll is also proud to welcome publisher Shonen-gahosha and literary agent Cork to the growing lineup.

I checked out the Cork Agency web site; they're representing some interesting creators (among them the creator of "Space Brothers"). In particular I'd be interested in checking out some of Moyoco Anno's work, if CR is willing and able to license it.
