I prefer to read completed manga when possible. Can Crunchyroll provide more information on their manga pages? I'd like the following:
-Number of chapters and volumes in Japan (ie. 6 complete volumes and 51 chapters including ones not compiled in a volume yet)
-Say if the manga has ended or not in Japan
-Number and range of chapters and volumes on Crunchyroll (ie. 21 chapters available, chapters 3-23 available and no complete volume available)
-Links to related content and their relation if they're on Crunchyroll and/or specify what content are related even if they're not on Crunchyroll (ie. sequel, prequel, parent novel, adapted anime, original oneshot, spinoff series, etc.)
-For adapted anime, provide what chapters it covers, if it has a completely different story, if it has an alternate ending, etc. This could be on both the anime and manga page if Crunchyroll has them both.


Thanks!

Edit: Added anime and manga story overlap bullet.

You can find that information from outside sources, such as AnimeNewsNetwork.com and other websites.

Yes, I'm aware of that. That's how I came up with the suggestion. Plus many of these sites are fan created and sometimes have wrong or outdated information. Maybe Crunchyroll's direct partnership can give them access to more up to date and correct info. I'm merely providing a suggestion for Crunchyroll to improve their own service offering by providing a single source of content and information. They can make use of my suggestion or not but I definitely would like to not visit multiple sites for information on a single series. I'm sure Crunchyroll would prefer their users to stay on their site longer and especially stay away from possible competitors or sites that point to them (even illegal ones).
