Hey Android users and manga lovers!

We are happy to let you know that we have a limited time sale in the Manga Shop on all manga from our friends at Vertical Comics! From now until 5/15 at 11:59pm PDT all Vertical manga is on sale for up to 50% off! Now is the perfect time to check out some amazing manga like Knights of Sidonia, Ajin: Demi Human, From the New World, Devils’ Line, and more, (full series list below) including the newest addition to the Manga Shop: Flying Witch!

Flying Witch 1 by Chihiro Ishizuka

Makoto Kowata, a novice witch, packs up her belongings (including her black cat familiar) and moves in with her distant cousins in rural Aomori Prefecture, in the far north reaches of Japan, to complete her training and become a full-fledged witch.

From the New World 1 by Yusuke Kishi and Toru Oikawa

Saki and her schoolmates enjoy what they consider normal lives in a peaceful provincial setting. Only their village cannot be of this era. Its customs differ from those of any known in modern day Japan. The landscape while familiar is also much more constrained than what modern-day maps may exhibit. So when six friends embark on a journey of mental and physical training, this fateful journey will lead them to a series of mind-shattering truths—for these characters and for us as readers.

Devils’ Line 1 by Ryo Hanada

Tsukasa, a college student, is rescued from an attack by a devil, one of many vampires that can blend in among the human population. Anzai, her savior, is a half-devil who exploits his supernatural gifts as a member of a shadowy police task force that specializes in devil-related crime in Tokyo. As Anzai continues to keep guard over Tsukasa, the two quickly forge a tentative bond—one that Anzai fears will test his iron-clad rule of never drinking human blood…

Ajin: Demi Human 1 by Tsuina Miura, Gamon Sakurai

High school student Kei Nagai is struck dead in a grizzly traffic accident, but immediately revives to learn that he may not be like every other human. Instead, he may be a mysterious almost immortal being granted not only the powers of rejuvination but the abilities to see supernatural beings. Scared, he runs away, and is aided in his escape from society by his friend. Unfortunately for Kei, the manhunt is on and he will soon be caught within a conflict between mankind and others like him as they prepare to fight a new war based on terror.

Knights of Sidonia 1 by Tsutomu Nihei

Outer space, the far future. A lone seed ship, the Sidonia, plies the void, ten centuries since the obliteration of the solar system. The massive, nearly indestructible, yet barely sentient alien life forms that destroyed humanity’s home world continue to pose an existential threat. Nagate Tanikaze has only known life in the vessel’s bowels deep below the sparkling strata where humans have achieved photosynthesis and new genders. Not long after he emerges from the Underground, however, the youth is bequeathed a treasured legacy by the spaceship’s coolheaded female captain.

How about giving support to your actual manga app? I really like it but It's a glitchy mess and there's not much to even read.

I have no idea why anyone would buy manga from Crunchyroll's "Manga shop beta".

If you want to support the artists and buy or download manga for offline use, you should just buy and download from Amazon. It's way cheaper, and their kindle app isn't a flaming mess.

I don't know, it seems like CR's priorities are messed up to me.

I don't suppose you guys could make these or even some of them available for online reading for subscribers? As in other than the 2 from the list that have been available for ages.

I've been with Crunchyroll back since the pirate days and nowadays it seems their priorities seem all over the place. Especially with that whole recent quality debacle. I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have done anything if it wasn't (thankfully) for the very vocal fan community. The manga app, the anime app, needs some serious polishing.

I don't believe it is so much about priorities but about direction, or more to the point lack thereof. As a company grows they need to expand and try new things but at some point without a solid person in charge at the helm the ship is rudderless as it were. They begin stretching in directions without regard to the core or what made them successful and I believe this is the what is happening.

As far as the free manga app that is supposed to be part of our subscription it has been a mess for a long time without any updates or fixes. At the current time it is dead and only supporting the last of contracted Manga, once those are over it will probably be eventually shut down.

For the new Beta Manga; it is a dumpster fire of bad ideas. The worst is that it doesn't work very well due to the framework it is based off of and more importantly it is to expensive! What is the incentive to buy anything from Crunchyroll Manga that I can only read in their proprietary app for more money that it costs else where?

There needs to be a reason to validate spending more money and "because crunchyroll guyz..lul" is not it.

Does From The New World still have the lesbian pornography in it, or was that removed for the licensed release?
