Yeah it's already paid for here too. ..

I'd rather they wait until they have more than the middle three (or one!) book in a series before they claimed they had the title to read.

right now it's too much like blockbuster's (LAUGH) 'Anime Section'

I'm surprised by all the negativity. I paid my ~$40 for the year and I've read several dozen volumes of manga at this point. Incredible value. The service is indeed a bit flaky (hard to find out when new chapters are out, missing chapters for some series, no auto-bookmarking system) but they have around a dozen new chapters of manga every week, and they are averaging a couple dozen more chapters a week on filling in back-issues.

It depends really. I pay for it and I find it enjoyable! But their selection is lacking. My reason for paying for it is that the more people that pay for it the more money CR has to spend on improving the manga,anime,drama sections of the site. Try it for your self for a while TB8AQJ7ZQLP-expires march 22. REDEEMED . JDQ8ACE78AK-expires 21 April.

Yeah, by my count I've read twenty volumes since the service started. If these were print editions, that'd be at least $150, yet my all-access pass cost less than half of that. Once I plot through Space Bros., Mysterious Girlfriend X and Coppelion, it'll be down to two or three bucks per volume.

For me i'ts worth the money, I'm following/reading 11 mangas here on crunchyroll while waiting for 3 to catch up with the newer releases.
All this for a little sum, so I definitly recommend to subscribe for full premium member/manga.

They are doing good work on expanding their titles and the more people who subscribe the more titles will come. So within a short amount of time I think Crunchyroll will have gained a great deal of manga titles.

I agree, I think its worth it. I'm currently reading 11 mangas here on crunchyroll and waiting for 3 to update their catalog.

The more subs they get for manga the more titles will come in.

I should rephrase my post, it is a great service, there is a decent selection, and clearly you are saving money from having to buy the volumes straight out, and some of these series I don't think have any official English release that I know of. Assuming you are paying monthly, you are paying for the price of one print volume of Manga to get monthly unrestricted access to all of the Manga they have.

It's just I wish they would get the full back catalog rather than start on the simulpub. There are a few series I want to read on CR Manga, but they lack the catalog to catch up with. I'm not exactly the type to start in the middle of a story, and enjoy it.

It depends on your disposable income, really. I'm enjoying it, and while at launch I don't think it was "worth it", they've added a number of titles. I've definitely read more than $40 of manga on CR, maybe 24 volumes worth, and they're adding more all the time (they recently uploaded the first 3 volumes of Arpeggio of Blue Steel, for example). Most of the selected titles are of good-to-fair quality. I'm happy with my purchase, but I could see how other might not be. Props to CR for not needlessly delaying releasing a series just because the initial chapters aren't published yet.

Honestly I've read through a couple volumes and I'm really excited to start reading space brothers. So it's worth it for me. I'm also really interested in Orange and ReCollection and I can't wait for the manga to actually get printed so it's nice to be able to read them weekly. If you see a couple titles that you're interested in, it might be worth it for you to just subscribe for the manga too. I think they'll be adding a lot more titles soon as well.

i joined it or added it to mine when they first started but haven't read anything on here yet... I don't see many i care about reading and the two that i might i would have to wait and see how they end before i get into them. So, if you want to hope for the future and support them then go ahead if your expecting to get you manga fix here i wouldn't.

It's true that is frustrating that many series don't have the chapter 1 available right now but in the other side...
They have all the volumes of Space Brothers! I will pay subscription just to read that series!
