Yeah, offline is treated as download, so $4-$10 per volume, like at B&N, Google Play, Kindle, etc. The cost of "all you can read" with off line access would be through the roof. With 8-10 chapters per vulume, that's $0.40-$1.20 per chapter.

It would be great if they were able to give of line access with a per chapter rental, like $0.10/chapter, but that would require getting agreement from enough different publishers.

I have a Samsung Tab 3 with an 8" screen. I don't have a service plan with it. I can only get Internet with a wifi connection, but that means I have to be at home, at Starbucks, or somewhere offering free wifi. That means, I can't use it, because at home I use my huge 37 inch monitor, for that kind of thing. I don't go to Starbucks (I don't drink coffee), and at work, the wifi is private, and used only for their mobile work stations.

*sigh* But I see what you're saying. Downloading a manga would be like downloading a book from Amazon, or some other place. Got to pay for each one. What you say makes sense.

Music Subscription Services like Spotify and Rhapsody all have the download feature.
Once your subscription ends, access to the manga will be terminated..even if they have been downloaded.

I feel DRM Manga downloads are most convenient for me because im usually travelling to places and access to wifi becomes a real task.

I'm really hoping the site itself will work on my kobo aura hd's browser when I finally get the thing next week or so.

Speaking of which, yeah--how about a kindle paperwhite/nook/kobo subscription/app or something so we can access this stuff on e-ink ereaders WITHOUT the "experimental" browsers.

DRMed epub/pdf would work too I guess, you know--like how libraries do it with overdrive and what not.

this would be nice if there was actually any manga on the manga category of the service, you have almost no manga at all, its just a library so small that i am feeling dumb for paying all access

If they can convince Japanese publishers of that, it would definitely be a good feature for Crunchyroll to include. DRM download with a one-week expiration would be plenty of time for me for a trip on a plane or bus or train where WiFi is not going to be available. Also good for a local bus.

The fact that US music subscription services have convinced music publishers in the US of the benefit of it could be used as part of the argument, but in the end it still requires the Japanese manga publishers saying "yes, you can do that".

Its true that Barnes & Nobles has more volumes of manga available in the form of Nook Comics, but at $5-$10 per volume it is well over my budget except for manga I want to collect.

Is there someplace to get info on how the Manga 2.0 app works?

Mine freezes all the time and I have to delete and re-install it to continue, it would be good if there was a swipe gesture that opened a control panel to shut the app down when it gets stuck....

I would hope there's an update coming soon to the iPad app. It crashes upon startup while running iOS 8. While iOS 8 is still in pre-release, it's about to go wide in a few days. The iPhone app works just fine with iOS 8, though.

I just purchased an iPhone 6 and I'm finding that the Manga app crashes on startup.
