We are also happy to announce we now have a Facebook and Twitter dedicated to Crunchyroll Manga! You can stay up to date with updates and announcements as well as what myself and others are reading and want to read on Crunchyroll Manga by following! These are also great places to send suggestions for titles you'd like to see on our site!

Now for some New-To-Crunchyroll-Manga announcements!

That's right, we have some new stuff on Crunchyroll Manga for you to read! These are two catalog titles but keep an eye out throughout this week and next week for even more new title announcements!

First up we have Present for Me by Masakazu Ishiguro with all of Volume 1 available TODAY at 5pm PST.



A collection of 7 short manga published in 2000-2004 by Masakazu Ishiguro, the creator who bloomed his talent in the masterpiece “Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru”.

For a list of territories, see below!



The next title we have for you is a classic that I'm super excited about! It's Crayon Shin-chan by Usui Yoshito!

We will be releasing chapters on a weekly basis with chapter 1 launching TODAY at 5pm PST and weekly chapters launching WEDNESDAYS at 3pm PST moving forward!



The series follows the antics of a five-year-old boy Shinnosuke Nohara, his parents, neighbours, and friends. This story is set in Kasukabe, Saitama Prefecture, Japan. The manga is called "Crayon Shin-chan" because "crayon" signifies the fact that it is a tool commonly used by kindergartners and that Shin-chan goes to kindergarten. "Shin-chan" is the affectionate name for the main character.

For a list of territories, see below!



That's all we've got for today! If you're wondering where our web update is, it's coming soon so stay tuned! If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ in the spoiler section below and post any questions/comments in this thread.

The update might be good and all, but I won't be fully satisfied until:
1- I can see the full double page spreads, and not just 1 page at a time.
2- Not seeing the problem where some pages are missing in a chapter or they don't load come up frequently.

I'll admit I regretted spending the extra $5 on All-Access after using the fledgling manga section of the site. I knew Crunchyroll would deliver, though, and I'm glad to see manga users' patience is paying off. Keep up the great work, ladies and gents!

And maybe add the Attack on Titan back-catalogue someday, too, hm? Maybe? Pretty please?

Yes, we will be updating the Twitter whenever we update site-news.

Chapter one and the most recent simul-pubbed chapters are free for free users, can you explain what issue you're experiencing?

Great to hear there's a new version... but, Amazon's app store still shows version 1.4.0 at the moment. Any chance the new version works with the Kindle Fire HD/HDX models now?

You can currently download the Android app for Kindle and use it, however we are not officially supported on Kindle. We are working on getting the update on the Amazon app store.
