...but what's the point if I can't even follow the story from the start.
I'm talking about the lack of back issues.
Maybe there's intent there to add them or translate them, maybe there isn't.
Who knows?

I totally agree! There are a few series that I want to read, but I can't because CR starts at like 32 or something.

Some of the series are only scanlated to chapters ~2-9 or so, while CR starts at ~32. Most people can't read Japanese, so they should really start off on chapter 1, and catch up and simulpub it then, so that people can actually read the manga.

It depends on the series. I believe CR has already stated that some of the series will have their back catalog added at a later time. When? I have no idea.

Other series like AoT or Fairy Tail, will not have their back catalog added because the volumes have already been released. This is not CR's fault, as I'm sure Kodansha is behind this decision. They want people to go and buy the volumes, and then come on CR to read the latest chapters.

They're getting there! I think there's only been one case of a recent announcement where they didn't clearly indicate that back catalog would be filled in. (And they were clear that there would be cases, such as Attack on Titan and Fairy Tail where CR wouldn't have the chapters because they were alredy available elsewhere).

CR is keeping its promise to provide the older chapters, even if it's not happening as rapidly as some would like. Space Brothers is now caught up, Mysterious Girlfriend X is just missing one chapter now, and a lot of volumes were recently added to A Town Where you Live.

I've been keeping a list showing which titles have all the chapters, and which have gaps.

/forumtopic-819329/should-cr-add-manga-to-the-site-omg-they-did?pg=15#44853861

I'm not sure what the big deal is. I've got plenty to keep up with, while waiting for the gaps to get filled.

I hope the recent titles will be filled quickly. many of them have less than 30 chapters, but why they take too long. Does CR wait for the volumes to release first before adding missing chapters?
