CR lack of new manga.
Posted 1/23/16
I feel like been ages since new manga was even added. Do you guys think CR manga project is doing OK? I am worried that the reason we haven't seen new manga is because is not making them, that much money.

How you guys feel about how well is CR manga project doing? Do you like the current size selection or you wish it was bigger? How about the manga reader. Do you think is good or bad? What areas do you feel it could be improved upon?

I've heard alot of complaints about the reader, though I myself like it very much.

At this point, I'm more concerned about getting a solid update schedule than anything else. For all the other issues we've had over the past few months, that would be a huge step forward as far as I'm concerned. Even if we don't have a manga queue, just something like a release calendar would be great.

I also think that advertising newly released chapters on the slider, in addition to the series ads they do now, would be helpful. Maybe there could be a another slider used exclusively for manga?

As for selection, it comes back to that problem of structure. I pay $25/year for my viz membership, but I don't get access to the catalog. For the amount of manga that is in the CR catalog, as long as new chapters continue to be published and new series added at a reasonable rate I don't think I'd have an issue paying for the membership here whenever I get the chance.

At the end of the day, I just don't want CR to stretch itself too thin. I've been satisfied with the new simulcast and catalog pickups, I just want them to focus a bit more to steady up their manga program. I just hope that this whole webcomic run that we're having isn't taking up too much energy.

They just added some at the end of December though?

I mean it's fairly obvious that CR's reliability when it comes to manga is total trash but they've picked up series that I enjoy, and some good ones as well. The manga reader is good enough but it can definitely be improved in some ways.

Also just to state it again, CR's reliability to putting up manga and telling people about delays is trash. Literal trash.

Doesn't really bother me too much, considering the fact that the manga portion was behind a separate paywall once. Then they just up and said, 'hey all premium members can read manga now', and I was like, 'aight cool.'

I am following several mangas on CR and would really appreciate a "latest added chapters" list on the web main page. There is no way to know now when updates are added without keeping checking the app or seeing that there are new posts in the manga discussion forums.
