Hey everyone,

We are excited to announce our new Manga Simulpubs coming to Crunchyroll Manga from Kodansha, starting TOMORROW, for users worldwide ex Japan!

In addition, our continuing Kodansha Simulpubs will also be expanding our territories to become worldwide ex Japan as well, so now more users can read them!

Premium users will be able to read all of the chapters whenever they would like, and a preview of each of the first chapters of the simulpubs will be available to free users as well!

Check out our exciting new simulpubs below!


With APOSIMZ, science-fiction manga master Tsutomu Nihei (Knights of Sidonia, BLAME!) takes us into at-once familiar and disorienting territory: a towering “City” built upon the ruins of a mysterious device from the distant past, a “Country of Dolls” of people afflicted with a disease that slowly turns them into machines.



A new girls' soccer manga from Naoshi Arakawa, creator of Your Lie in April!



The new shojo manga from Robico, the hit creator of My Little Monster! Nozomi Aizawa has has kept her feelings for her schoolmate Azuma-kun a secret for quite a while, but the time has come for her to finally confess. His response, though, is far from ordinary! Led in circles by his hilarious tangents, these two awkward teenagers find themselves growing ever closer while muddling through misunderstandings and off-topic rants. When the airheaded stalker Aizawa-san finally connects with the petulant know-it-all Azuma-kun, the result is a romantic comedy worth talking about!



A new manga from the creator of the acclaimed A Silent Voice, featuring intimate, emotional drama and an epic story spanning time and space, To Your Eternity is a totally unique and moving manga about death, life, reincarnation, and the nature of love. A lonely boy wandering the Arctic regions of North America meets a wolf, and the two become fast friends, depending on each other to survive the harsh environment. But the boy has a history, and the wolf is more than meets the eye as well…



The new racing thrill ride from the creator of Oh! My Goddess and Paradise Residence! Toppu Uno never wanted to race motorcycles. He was perfectly content watching his sister ride—with his eagle eyes, he knew her lap times before the the stopwatch did. When he’s convinced to take a ride on a minibike for the first time, his hours of observation translate into instant skill on the track. But turning a quick lap and winning a race are two very different things, and Toppu’s got a long way to go before he’s ready for the big leagues: MotoGP, the highest level of two-wheeled road racing.



From manga legend Hiroaki Samura, creator of Blade of the Immortal and Die Wergelder, comes something completely different, the journey of one disgruntled young woman's journey into the wild rapids of talk radio! The stage is Sapporo, Hokkaido. One night, our heroine, Minare Koda, spills her heartbroken woes to a radio station worker she meets while out drinking one night. The next day, she hears a recording of her pitiful grumbling being played live over the air. Minare storms into the station in a rage, only to then be duped by the station director into doing an impromptu talk show explaining her harsh dialogue. With just one recording, the many eccentric facets of Minare's life begin to pull every which direction as she falls ever deeper into the world of radio.



The draking vessel Quin Zaza soars through the skies, hunting dragons that hide in the clouds. A single big catch means full coffers and all the meat they can eat, while failure means an empty wallet and an even emptier stomach. Join us as we log the crew’s grand adventures, chasing dreams of the sky, dragons, and gourmet cooking!



After moving out on his own to a seaside town, Iori Kitahara makes a college debut he never anticipated. A new chapter of his life unfolds, full of diving with beautiful girls and shenanigans with a gaggle of lovable bastards! Idiot-expert Kenji Inoue and au naturel authority Kimitake Yoshioka bring you a glorious college tale filled with booze-fueled antics!


In addition to our wonderful new simupubs, we are super excited to announce that we will be streaming the first 30 volumes (257 chapters!) of Fairy Tail!


Cute girl wizard Lucy wants to join the Fairy Tail, a club for the most powerful wizards. But instead her ambitions land her in the clutches of a gang of unsavory pirates led by a devious magician. Her only hope is Natsu, a strange boy she happens to meet on her travels. Natsu’s not your typical hero—he gets motion sickness, eats like a pig, and his best friend is a talking cat. With friends like this, is Lucy better off with her enemies?

The below uncollected chapters for our continuing Kodansha simulpub will also be available on March 1!

Ajin: 44,45,46,47,48,49,50,51,52,53,54,54.2,54.3,55,55.5

Great news! Dropped some of these because I couldn't afford so many $1-2 a week/month Simulpubs on ComiXology.

I hope the quality of the Simulpub process increases though. Last weeks Seven Deadly Sins had mismatched 2-page spreads.

Uhhh, not to alarm you guys, but Sweetness and Lightning 45-50 have been available for a while now. 51 even went up not too long ago. Similarly Space Brothers is already at 311, and I'm gonna guess a couple of those others as well.

I believe the intent of that list was to provide details regarding exactly which chapters are meant by "the latest chapters" that were referred to in the earlier announcement where we were told the older chapters were going away:


Additionally, we will also have several titles be moving to simulpub only, so while their catalog titles will be moving to the ebook store, the latest chapters will still be available online for Crunchyroll Premium members to read! This change will be made on March 1, 2018.

Ajin
Heroic Legend of Arslan
Attack on Titan
Fuuka
GTO - Paradise Lost
Kiss Him, Not Me
Space Brothers
The Seven Deadly Sins
Sweetness and Lightning
UQ HOLDER!


But it does look like they posted a slightly old list, since it is true that for some of those, the most recent chapter on CR is more recent than the chapter named in the list.

Interested in Ningyou no Kuni and Fumetsu no Anata e, but I will wait until they are finished. Not important, but I liked "To you, the Immortal" as a name so much more.

Doesn't mean much, some manga only have the most recent chapters available but lack some of the older ones. Attack on Titan for example is one of them.

Great news that there’s new manga to read but it’s a shame that many have been taken off too. I hadn’t finished A SIlent voice, shame there wasn’t a warning that it was going to be removed (unless I missed it)

Hmmm some good pick ups, especially Grand Blue. 10/10 best diving manga.

Now to wait and see how long it takes for chapters to actually come out.
