Ratings and Reviews
Solid foundation, but with too small a library.
As a supplementary service offered au gratis with your Crunchyroll subscription, their manga service is pretty great. You get a no-nonsense UI with basic bookmarking and favoriting to keep up with your favorite series, and an interface that works well.
As a proprietary service, it feels anemic. While there are notable works made available, like A-Jin, Seven Deadly Sins, and Arakawa Under The Bridge, the library is overall pretty small — especially when compared to the substantial collection on Crunchyroll’s primary anime and j-drama service.
It also doesn’t have a particularly good storefront as a result. Since the library is so small, there’s no need for discoverability or genre classification — which, in and of itself, is a problem worth addressing should they ever expand its collection. However, new series don’t pop up on here often enough to inspire confidence.
It’s great as a free offering to Crunchyroll, which is already a pretty hefty service, and you won’t run into low-quality art or amateurish translations like in free services, but it’s still got a ways to go in a market desperately in need of strong competition, and it starts with the library.
The biggest pain in my neck
I have loved using the CR Manga app for a few years now with a lot—and I mean a LOT—of patience. I understand the app has a ways to go in improvements but honestly issues just kept getting worse and worse over time rather than improving. The amount of times the app would stay stuck on “Authenticating” forcing me to delete and reinstall is ridiculous. I’ve been forced kicked out of my account while I was reading manga because it suddenly didn’t recognize my account. Now it gets stuck saying there is no server activity. I should not have to be uninstalling and reinstalling this app this many times just to get caught up with my fave manga so far. Oof and don’t even get me started on the meager collection of manga available. It has some popular manga but come on, where are the bigger major titles of the season? Maybe we’ll get a bone thrown at us here and there but this is just making me want to just give up on this app altogether. I hope there can be some better improvements for the iOS version but so far, two stars is all it’ll get from me. :/
If you’ve been reading the reviews then you already know the issue. This authenticating/Infinite loading glitch has been happening well over a year now. I have also emailed them constantly, they continue to say they are aware of the issue and working on a fix and blah blah thanks for being a premium member. It’s pretty obvious they do not care. I’m currently on my second phone, my iPhone X and this problem started on my old 6S and it persisted into my new. It also doesn’t help that their regular anime watching app is also broken beyond belief on my X. They refuse to actually pay and get proper programmers to fix the problem with these consistent loading issues that is plaguing their apps. I’ve had it with crunchyroll I’m switching over to VRV as well subscribing to Comixology because as far as I’m concerned they have a wide selection of not only Japanese manga but regular American comics. Could probably cost a little more than crunchyroll subscription but at least I am getting quality for the money I am paying for and not some dumb PR email that’s copy and pasted every time crunchyroll gets a support problem.
