I couldn't find an official RSS feed for manga chapters on the site, and the unofficial one in the forums last updated almost a year ago, so I made one in a few hours.

http://utils.senpai.moe/

It should update every half hour; tweet at me (@Nosgoroth or @SenpaiChart) if it stops updating, or it starts spouting nonsense, and I'll fix it. You can see the code by yourself here.

Status: Working

====================================================

2017/Dec/04: Added a link to the Github repository
2017/Nov/30: A fix has been applied and the feed should be updating again.
2017/Nov/03: An automatic server OS update has broken the script, I'll fix it as soon as I can.
2017/Jan/08: 2017 and still alive. This was a triumph.
2016/Mar/10: It keeps chugging along more reliably than I actually expected. Nice.
2015/Sep/11: All systems nominal.
2015/Sep/09: Feed generation failing, probably related to general Manga section downtime.
2015/Jul/09: Initial publish

Wow thanks so much for this!

I can't believe there's still no official way to queue manga. Glaring omission indeed!

Btw, out of curiosity does anyone else use feedly?

Blessings be upon you, sempai. I'm still voting for Crunchy to actually come up with a real watch list (maybe with a custom RSS feed??), but this will do me for now.

I wonder why Cruchyroll refuses to have any type of bookmark/queue for manga? I know CR isn't Amazon, by why add new content without thinking about basic usability first?

======================================================

ERROR ALERT:

Feed generation has been failing since a few hours ago, so the feed is not updating. It appears that the unofficial API is not returning valid JSON or something like that, I'll have a look at it when I get home later today.

If I'm understanding you correctly, you don't see item titles for RSS elements? If so, I can't replicate the issue, I'm seeing title tags for all elements in the feed, both in Feedly and in the xml source. What reader are you using?

Yeah, good question. I can only think of two things: either their developer resources are stretched thin, or they don't expect this feature to help return a profit so it's low priority. Or both. Either way, it sucks.

There are reports in CR's Help forum of the manga part of CR being down for maintenance, so I imagine that's why there were/are problems with the feed updating. Seems like the server was down.

Yep, I guess that's it then, thanks. I'll wait for that issue to go away and then I'll see if the feed works, which it probably should.

The updates for the "simulpubs" seem irregular and frequently late. It is always disappointing to see that Crunchyroll is several chapters behind on something. Another thing I feel it is necessary to point out is that the manga lineup page is nearly blank and a year outdated.

Pretty much my thoughts. I really like Crunchryoll but many of their manga either aren't up to date or haven't been updated since they launched. Months ago.

Thanks for this! It's crazy that this isn't available on the site.

I really think Crunchyroll should start thinking about genre searches, I would love to focus more on my favorite genres
