Thanks for posting this manga from the beginning! There is a major issue however. The translation or translation editing is very bad. You will really want to fix this or remove it from the site because it reflects poorly on you, especially when your other translation efforts are decent-to-great.

Sun-Ken is an amazing addition to CR, Boichi's work is amazing! Ive been reading this one for close to a year and why has no one tapped this for an anime adaptation is way beyond me

Good for CR!
I love this action manga and definitely needed to catch up to the latest! Wondering how they'll manage all the mature scenes tho..its quite adult in nature

Hey Guys,

Happy Friday, and let's kick off the weekend with the addition of a new simulpub title on Crunchyroll Manga! The popular Sun-Ken Rock will be joining the manga lineup Sunday, February 9 at 4pm Pacific Time!

You know I think this was a great move by crunchyroll in how you handled the getting the scanlators to respect your copyright. The world is in dire need of cases like these were process of licensing manga in another country and the process of transitioning the fanbase is handled properly. So many times have English publishers follow DMCA rigidly and not be flexible about how copyright is enforced. So many times I have I seen companies abuse DCMA law. They become so rigid, like youtube has become, that they cannot bend when they make a mistake and slowly erode themselves away.


I would definitely save any emails or conversations that you have had with Japanazi, because the way you contacted them is how you are supposed to do a DCMA claim and transition from scanlation to licenses.

I mean for god sakes, do you realize that you got the person, Weaper, whose been uploading 135 to not only agree to your terms, but to promote chruncyroll and do a review. Just look at the links below:
http://www.batoto.net/forums/topic/16831-sun-ken-rock-is-on-crunchyroll/
https://japanzai.com/index.php/sun-ken-rock-chapter-135-now-on-crunchyroll/

This is like getting ""evil"" dark lord to save a poor wild kitten stuck in a tree. You have turned your greatest potential enemy into your greatest ally. In fact, it is so important they you realize what you have done right, I am going to briefly highlight the actually steps and where you should go from here.


Steps of scanlation to license transition:
1. English publishing company, crunchyroll first DIRECTLY ask (no demands) nicely for scanlators to:


2. After waiting 1-5 days, you enforce your DCMA powers and write thank you notes.

3. Repeat the process for other languages such as Spanish.
As you may already realize, crunchyroll has done step 1, but it needs to do steps 2 and 3. In particular, I really do think you should 1) personally thank Weaper for his very swift action, 2) work on make sure Batoto takes down the English chapters, and 3) work on doing this entire process over again for Spanish. In other words don’t stop the momentum you have started by publishing English version of Sen Kun Rock, follow through with a Spanish version and contacting “Hellstone no Fansub” with the same manner of respect you contacted Japanazi.

edit: used spoiler tags to seperate the different bullet points. I really wish I had a bullet point or list option

Now if only CR's manga actually worked properly.. Also no manga on the phone app is a massive downside... Sun-Ken Rock however is an amazing manga and I absolutely love it. (Ken is my avatar after all..) Also if they're not going to do the previous chapters its pretty much a waste. It has been made very clear Sun-Ken Rock is on its final arc at the moment.

It's true that CR's online reader has some major issues, really need to ditch the flash reader.

there are manga on the phone app, it's just a different phone app. Crunchyroll has one for anime, one for manga, one for news, etc...
plus, unlike the online reader here, the app is really good. I was surprised.
All of Crunchyroll's manga are available, even simulpub.

As for the previous volumes of Sun-Ken Rock, I'm pretty sure they'll be done. Be it for them to have their readers stick to CR to read or for the reader themselves. It takes time to edit the currently remaining 18 volumes but I'm sure it'll come in due time

Oh awesome, they did add a separate manga app for the phone, and it does work much better than the online reader. The online reader is actually a bit better since I'd last tried using it though, I have to admit. The pages actually show up now, but the flash reader still really should be replaced.
Thanks for all the work you've done with Sunk-Ken Rock up until now, Weaper. I really appreciate it, and I am glad Boichi will see some money out of this.

Is SKR available in the mobile app?
Can't find it while I could using the site.

yes it it.
Seems like all of Cruchyroll's lineup is there. Maybe you can't see it because of country exclusion?

My country isn't in the exclusion list
In the mobile app, I can see all the lineup except for SKR, I can read the chapter through my laptop so My country isn't blacklisted even by mistake. First I thought due to the mature nature of the manga it wasn't available in the app but if you could read it I wonder why I can't.

Are you by chance on an iPhone while Weaper is using Android? If so, that would explain the difference. Apple has certain policies in place that Google does not.
