Hi there! Long time user, first time poster.

I was curious if anyone knew about the Manga for Witch Craft Works.

I've been really enjoying the show, and started reading the manga. My question is if anyone knows why the translations stop at chapter 25? They have already released chapter 26-30+ RAW. . . they have been out for some time now, however none of the the manga reading website have translated version - at least not the ones i have found.

Is there some sort of legal issue preventing from translation and public release?

Lack of audience?

Does anyone know, or have any pertinent information?

Thank you,

Wos1337

This is the frustrating thing about manga. Only the most popular titles get quickly translated, so the further down the rabbit hole you go the more you find good titles that are way behind the raws.

Edit: it's out, and it's cliffhangertastic, so now we can wonder when 27 will get translated.

It would be nice if CR picked it up, though. Kodansha should give us something to replace Kimi no Iru Machi.

Have I missed something? Was it ever on CR? I am hoping that, we at CR, will continue to get more & more titles in the future.

Except Vertical has already licensed WCW for US publication, so I doubt that Kodansha will give the digital release rights to another player. If Vertical has digital as well as paper publication rights, they might strike a deal with Crunchyroll, but I doubt that they do. I haven't seen any evidence of Vertical making e-book versions of any of the manga they publish.

I feel bad reading "pirated" manga.

You can pre-order volume 1 now. I already have. I plan on buying all volumes of WCW that Vertical puts out.
