    Keep an eye on the news section at Crunchyroll. They will make the announcement there. The simulpubb starts Wednesday, with the next issue of Shounen Magazine. They will have the full list up by then.

    Sounds like Kodansha wants my money that Shueisha doesn't wish to take.

    If Seven Deadly Sins and Wagatsuma are stopped being scanlated while I have no access to their service, this is the worse news of the year for me. It's a pitty because I would have been much more interested in this than Jump Alpha.

    Who is the rights holder for Kodansha in France?

    I find it interesting how many of the series on Crunchyroll are otherwise unavailable, not licensed by Kodansha or Vertical.

    Pika has priority over Kodansha titles. They started publishing Shingeki last summer and will start Nanatsu around the same time as English release. Wagatsuma will probably never be translated since they mainly series that make money

    I'd like to point out that some of the decisions may have been made by Kodansha Japan, rather than the US subsidiary.

    I know that. I said it in a general way. Kodansha is losing money with it.
    Here we don't have any manga digital service, I really don't understand why Brazil is not included. Maybe in the future... =/

    Licensing manga to Crunchyroll might conflict with Kodansha's Brazilian licensing deal.

    I can understand this and I think it's the same for most of the other excluded countries, the only one I don't really understand is Mexico...We don't have any legal manga publisher right now in the country to begin with so just what stops them from extending the service to here?

    I'm not sure, among those announced only Fairy Tail and Attack on Titan are licensed here and only physical. I don't know very much how this business works, but I believe that digital and physical rights under a series are negotiated separately. That way, no publisher has digital rights here by what I know.

    It could be on Crunchyroll's end then. It's hard to say, licensing agreements were my best guess. Otherwise, I'm not sure.

    Not all of the series are licensed in the States either. In the US, Kodansha does not have any agreements with third party publishers. They allowed those too lapse before launching Kodansha Comics, and buying Vertical. Licensing agreements usually involve giving the licensing party exclusive publishing rights. Giving unlicensed titles to Crunchyroll would break their agreement. That's not a problem in the US, where they publish directly.

    Fairy Tail and Attack on Titan were licensed by Panini Comics. Maybe that's the reason.

    I think that it isn't the case, because Fairy Tail and Attack on Titan are licensed for different publishers. Editorial things are too confused... It's better to think that it is just temporary, I hope so. :S

    Re: Kodansha and Crunchyroll to Simulpub 12 Series to 170 Countries

    Ok, I'm a bit confused about the membership...

    I have a membership on Crunchyroll, but I haven't used it all (Mostly because free members didn't have the luxury of watching the anime the same time it comes out in Japan) However, that is changing now because I have learned there is a CR bucks system. Can someone help me explain how this might work with watching anime and reading mangas?

    P.S.: Fingers crossed now that this is a good sign for FT. It's time for Fairy Tail to make its mark in the global audience after being dominated by the Big 3 for the past decade.

    ---------- Post added at 08:25 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:07 PM ----------

    Ok, now that I've read it over again, so basically, this means that free users like me can read the chapters for free with ads. However, we can't go back to reading previous chapters, am I right?

    That is the leading thought based on what has been said so far. Oh well tomorrow is when it goes live so I guess we will see.
