Post Reply New Crunchyroll Manga and Manga 2.5 Title Announcements!
Posted 8/26/14 , edited 8/26/14
I don't think a season two would be good(unless they actually intend to resolve things), as it rarely improves anything with this type of show. Kawaisou has all the hall marks of being a new Mysterious Girlfriend, the relationship won't progress and characters will remain in the same stilted holding pattern with little more than situational comedy and maybe a bit of drama, none of which will have much effect.

So much for the entire catalog of Kawaisou being available tonight! Try the first 10 chapters... Sigh...

I hope they get the rest up soon, I want to get caught up to the current chapter!

For what ever reason there are 11 chapters in the iOS app.

I'm wondering why they went with the Japanese name for the manga when the anime has a proper English title. It's a little confusing

Its the manga-ka and the publisher who decide the name for the manga, the anime production committee ~ normally the overseas licensor subject to veto by the manga-ka ~ who decide the name for the anime.

So when the manga-ka doesn't intervene, the publisher and the anime overseas licensor can easily make a different decision.

Oh, a manga by Junko!! Cool, I'd love to see more works of hers here on CR!

Also, the regions for manga titles keep looking very good. I just wish it'd be similar with anime.

My bad! There were 11. I didn't hit the > the last time to see that Vol. 1 has 11 chapters...

I wondered why they didn't use the same title as the anime, but I figure it probably has to do with the publisher.

From the previous ones that have been put up, the Manga 2.5 titles are normally selected chapters collected to make what feels like a complete story. Karasuma Kyōko no Jikenbo was definitely like that, since the original manga was released as a ten volume (tankoubon) series in Japan, so the Manga 2.5 was following a particular recurring plot arc through the series to make a single story in eight episodes.

(Well, I guess except for slice of life where there is no broad plot arc to be found, where its more like "an introduction to ...".)
