For instance, Attack on Titan only has the most recent chapters (I guess that's more understandable), but Coppelion skips from 138 to 200, Arpeggio skips from 24 to 53, etc. Why is that? This has probably been asked before, but I didn't see it

Several titles went up with simulpub chapters first, followed by back catalog--often starting from chapter 1. For some of the titles with a lot of chapters the gaps are still being filled in, and they will all be there eventually. I can personally attest to the fact that they have made a lot of progress so far and many chapters that once had a gap are now completely up to date.

Do note that Attack on Titan and Fairy Tail were launched with a special provision because volumes of these were already available for purchase in English, that the volumes that were otherwise available would not be on Crunchyroll. When you go to these titles you will instead see a link to the CR store (for the printed version) or to Amazon (for the Kindle version) for separate purchase, but the more recent chapters are available as part of Crunchyroll Manga.

BTW, it's been the case in more recently added titles that CR has put the catalog chapters up first, and only add the simulpub once they are caught up. I don't know for sure if that will be the case with all new titles, but I'm thinking it might become more common as it's something a lot of users asked for.

For a fairly recent list of titles and which are up to date and which have gaps see my post here:

That's a few weeks old, but I expect to update it today.

I knew there must have been a good reason, thank you for the explanation. That's good to know there's a system in place for all of this, I've only had premium for about a month now so I'm glad to hear that chapters are being filled in like that.
