Just a quick question, I noticed that the new chapter for Yamada and the Seven Witches was only available for premium members.

(7/8 ~7pm) Dunno if you saw the same thing, but in addition to the new chapter (83) being visible but marked Premium, right now it says the previous chapter (82) is Coming Soon. If you click on the previous chapter, it asks you to sign up for Premium.

Don't worry about trying to bring it to their attention - they've been blatantly ignoring issues very much like this, ever since Shinji sold out two-and-a-half years ago. It was a relatively pleasant surprise that they finally responded at all several months ago, after the manga server went down twice in the span of a month and stayed down a total of 4-5 days, leaving us with not much to do except trade our experiences and realize that they've been doing this with a pretty wide variety of major issues. But the response was only meaningless platitudes, and when we pushed for real answers we were told all the foulups are "known and documented". "Known issues" is retail tech support-ese for "might get fixed in months or years, if you're lucky".

Looks like they updated it so all chapters are marked Premium now. Before, chapter 82 had been changed back to "Coming Soon" and chapters 1-81 and 83 were marked Premium.

There have been some recent licensing changes. Here's info that was posted recently (but not very prominently) in Site News:

/forumtopic-959313/content-updates


For most manga on Crunchyroll, the first and most recent chapters are available to free members with our ad-supported model. Due to changes in licensing, you may notice that some titles in our manga library are now only available to premium users. Starting this month, these titles (including Attack on Titan, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, The Seven Deadly Sins, and more) will be exclusively available for premium users. Thank you for understanding!
