ABOUT CRUNCHYROLL MANGA INTERFACE

Hi, guys. This is my first post and I would like to talk about the crunchyroll's interface to read manga. Specifically, about the web browser interface (the smart phone interface is really good).

Well, what can I say. For me is just UNCOMFORTABLE.
The way to move across pages, the size of each pages, is just not good for me. I also read manga from other websites like [[PIRATE SITE OMITTED]] and I rather prefer those ways to read manga.



So... what do you think about?

I totally agree with you, I rather have all the pages loaded so I can just scroll it down like on "other" sites. Since the zoom feature is really limited and just to change it to one page read doesn't fix it at all.

IOS version works works perfectly. Just like I said, it pre-loads the whole chapter making it really easy to read.

yeah i don't read any manga on CR. the reader is a pain. i also have a macbook and it turns like 5 pages when i am just trying to scroll or zooming in T_T

i'd like to read legally but.. the readers on other sites are just better, if not as... ahem.. legal.

Yeah. I would really like that Crunchyroll redefine its manga web interface. Its a pain. Lets make some noise and wait for admins to notice us.

All the pirated manga sites I've visited (not many) display manga so poorly. It is so much better for digital manga to have a single two page spread at a time. I'd much rather click on the left side of the screen 20 times or press an arrow key than scroll down and have to realign my screen for every page.

For me, it's randomly super fast or really laggy. But it's annoying that Google Chrome can't "read" whatever file the chapters are uploaded as (my only reason for not deleting Microsoft Edge from the get-go). Still, the quality of the pages and translation seem guaranteed to be higher than bare minimum, at least for the ones I've read so far.

Well, if i read manga in CR by using computer, it's rather pain. When using computer, unless you haven't read manga in such a long time and you forgot which chapter you're in, it doesn't exactly tell were you left of.

In Ipads and such, you can see your progress. Big improvement.

the one i use doesn't have those issues. but i know what kind of sites you are referring to, and they are crappy. i don't think the website i use can be found by a google search actually also scanlator teams that have their own readers are usually good

on CR manga i have to zoom in on every single page so im not going blind(er) to read the text, and that's an issue for me.
