Hello, I know it's very new but it is also a paying service we are paying for.
Is there any ETA on the mangas that are missing loads of chapters?
some even start at 1 then its huge gap to 30 which continues.

would be nice with some answers

Can you send me the specific manga titles you are referring to? We are currently translating a lot of content and chapters will be uploaded as soon as they are translated.

Any idea when Silver Nina and Is This Girl For Real will have all their missing chapters added?

I'm curious when A Town Where You Live will have the beginning chapters posted.

This is really getting beyond a joke now tbh, it's probably quicker to learn Japanese and buy the manga from Amazon Japan. As paying customers I think we're entitled to know the status of each and every manga thats being translated. The way you've gone about the whole manga setup just reeks of unprofessionalism.

Personally, I think that mid-run licenses should update in three directions from the point of picking them up.

From where they pick it up, naturally.
From the beginning, for new readers.
Backwards from pickup point, for those who started reading scanlations that lag behind the official release.

While it would be nice to know an ETA if that is possible, I would like to point out that the speed we are getting backlog volumes of manga is insanely fast compared to the speed they come when they are licensed by paperback publishing companies like Dark Horse, Kodansha, Tokyopop, etc. I mean we've gotten 14 volumes of Coppelion in like six months and 20 volumes of Space Brothers in the same time period while most manga only have like two or three volumes released in North America a year.

Paperback publishing involves a lot more than what Crunchyroll have to do so it's not a surprise they don't release faster. Crunchyroll just needs to translate, edit, typeset and upload, there really isn't an excuse to be so far behind with titles.

Alright, let's compare it to free scanlations then. Crunchyroll manga began on October 30th, meaning it has existed for less than 5 months. I have never seen scanlator even come close to releasing 228 chapters (Space Brothers) or even 150 chapters (Coppelion) in less than five months. The fact that we're even getting 30 or 40 chapters of several monthly published manga in the same time while some fan translators take a month or two per chapter seems incredible to me. I can understand that everyone really wants to read the manga they find interesting immediately, but we're getting an average of about 30 or 40 volumes of manga published per month for a cost of like one digitally published volume per month. To me that is amazing and the idea that people think that is slow or not worth its value when its way more manga, way faster than almost anyone else out there just seems off to me.

Not to mention in just the 15 days since this topic was started at least 8 volumes of backlogged manga have been added.

Then they shouldnt be putting titles up that are not ready to be published. Whats the point of reading something like Coppelion when a good chunk of its volumes are still missing?
