You can most manga just by searching it in google, besides I doubt manga was a priority for those at crunchyroll. I would rather have a wide selection of anime over manga as I can find most manga online and read via my ipad.

Please Crunchyroll can't even get what they do have out on time. Adding more manga is not going to help.

Maybe I'm an idiot for this, but I mainly got premium so that I could read some more of the manga on CR. I'd like to see more manga on here because I feel like most of the manga they add is of good quality and they don't just add whatever they can get their hands on. I also like the fact that some money is going back to the artists as well.

I would like to see more manga on CR, but they already have trouble keeping up with some of the manga they have. So it would be preferred to see that fixed or at least for them to be more transparent about it before they add more manga.

I don't think people understand how hard it is to get the rights to digital let alone online manga on a site that it's legal.

Understanding isn't a prerequisite. Consuming is. There's not a lot there to consume, it's updated haphazardly, and even if it is updated, often some to much of it is missing for some reason.

We don't need to know the internal reasons for any of that, we just need to consume and demand ever greater tributes toward our consumption.

I also originally got Crunchyroll to read manga and while there's some great series it does still feel a lot like an afterthought. The app android could really do with spread support and listing chapters by volume.

At least the Android App is working, the iOS one hasn't worked in months.

Have you read Kings Game or As the Gods Will? Those are pretty over the top violent. I agree with you though, would be nice to see more stuff along that vein, not that I don't mind the romance stuff. Kouji Seo is probably my favorite author now.

I know, right? It's not even worth the membership if there aren't other things to do on the website once you have watched all the anime you are interested in.

I'm going to guess it's a licensing thing. Some manga publishers are really stingy about who they lease their stories to, especially if it's for a US market. So I can't really blame Crunchyroll.

I Understand that but i think they its a better option to let them license it because would they have rather have it streamed illegally of Manga websites. Which it already is or they can make money of of it by Licensing it either way its gonna get read illegally or Legally. Rather be making money than not

Japan's just... not as willing to move their manga to digital than say, the west. I sometimes have to wait 2 months to half a year to get the digital version of a manga I want in ebook format.

That and licensing them. Pretty sure it's more than just "hey dude wanna translate that manga you published, wanna sign this contract?".
