I believe this question has been asked before. Yes, it is absolutely worth it. An extra $5 a month, 100s of chapters. Comparatively, an average manga volume of around 5 chapters is around $8 on Kindle. Granted, Kindle has a wider selection. But if you have a voracious appetite for manga, you need all access.

For me personally, I was already current on everything I want to read in their catalog so I can get by on the free version. I might be more attractive if their subscription management was made more user friendly. They make it easy to upgrade, but going the other way you have to cancel and re-sub. No other way I know of to go from all-access to anime or manga and certainly not with the same ease you can go from monthly to quarterly or yearly.

Honestly I got it to support the site. The selection is still pretty small, but it's better than what it was to begin with. Over the years, this site has slowly built up a good amount of anime in their library. I think this eventually is going to be true with their manga as well. I'd say if you want to stick with this site and see it grow, the membership is worth it in the long run. If you don't care or can't afford it, you can still find this stuff elsewhere.

Sure, it's worth it, as I've said before in another thread. $5 a month for unlimited access to numerous titles can't be beat. You'd pay more than that for a single volume by a single artist elsewhere (mind you, I do that too, occasionally). Also, the catalog has the potential to expand enormously.

I've been really happy with the chance to explore more manga that I'd otherwise not know about. Not everything is great, but a few things are really excellent, and even though there aren't a lot of titles yet, there's a fair amount of variety. It's an easy way in for me, since I don't want to use not-legit sources.

Full disclosure: As a mod I get All-Access for free, but if I didn't, this is something I would pay for (it's an especially good deal when you buy an annual membership during the Black Friday deal that's been happening for the last few years--that's the membership I've had pretty much since I started with Crunchyroll, before I became a mod).

TBH, I don't really get all the fuss about an anime + manga (iwithout drama) membership--especially since when I see people whinge about there not being one, they rarely say what they would be willing to pay for it. Right now you don't pay any more for All-Access than you would for anime and manga memberships if you were to buy both separately, so it's not really like you are paying extra for drama that you don't want--you are just not getting any extra discount.

BTW, I've moved this over to the Polls forum. That's where all the poll topics belong, regardless of subject matter.

I've yet to try it, although it seems like a pretty sweet deal despite the amount of selection.
