So i saw that the manga Oh My Goddess is licensed in america by Dark Horse Comics but its only for paperback and since this series is so loved by both westerners and easterners i was hoping to ask that cruchyroll get the rights to digitalize it.

If this is an unreasonable request then i wont push it but i would be nice if this was possible as then it would be available on my favorite and only "known" place to legally read manga.

Without knowing whether or not that is even possible to do, I will mention that the only "official" place to suggest additions to CR's library (Anime,Manga,Drama, etc) is here:

Asharka's given the right link for where on CR to make the request. Both Dark Horse and Amazon have volumes 1-6 digitized, so it might be worth contacting Dark Horse to see if they know of any plans to digitize the rest of the volumes. (Unfortunately, it looks like the volume 6 digital pub date is way back in December 2014, which makes it seem less likely that the publisher is actively in the process of making/licensing more digital copies.)

oh i forgot to post that i reached out to dark horse comics, kodansha, and the author and got a favorable response back from all 3 about a month after my last post. As well as a bit of thanks from the author for showing my support of the series. For obvious reasons i wont be posting the contents of those emails.

Dark horse started resuming digitalization a couple months later and now they are on volume 35 (soon to be volume 36) of the digitalization process.
