@Daniel_Newton:

I saw that yesterday. Now, One Piece is on FUNimation and Crunchyroll. Don't know how is that possible. FUNimation jacked Fairy Tail from Crunchyroll when the simulcasts disappeared from CR. I don't know why.

@takashichea: Nah I'm an anime member. If you want to make it bigger, just zoom in using your browser. Using Chrome I zoomed in 250% and got the full size pages. If you zoom more than that it starts to blow the image up past it's full size.

That said though, I just checked and suddenly I have access to the extra options in the manga viewer; zoom in, zoom out, and full screen. Maybe they've made those options available to everyone now, or it might be a temporary glitch.

Either way, you'll have a way to make the pages bigger :)

FUNimation and Crunchyroll are business partners and have certain deals in place. With Fairy Tail, Cruchyroll was simulcasting new episodes while FUNimation was building up it's backlog from the first episode onward. Each new episode on Crunchyroll was only available for a month or something, that's why the are no Fairy Tail episodes on CR anymore. I imagine when the anime returns it will be simulcast on CR again, especially now that they have the manga as well.

@Daniel_Newton:

I think I found a glitch or my Fire Fox browser's noscript is up no good.

I do see those options, but Fire Fox doesn't have them. I'll just use Chrome in the meantime and somehow fix the problem with Fire Fox.

Ah yes! I saw that today morning in the Google play store. Their app looks amazing and the style of reading is beautiful too. They did such an amazing job on the app, too bad I have yet to get an account with Crunchy Roll or else I would be using the app right now. I need to start one cause you need to log in in order to experience the app.

@DBZ_universe:

The account is free. You can read manga chapters for free, but only the latest release. Any chapters marked with a crown can only be accessed by folks with All-Access Membership.

What system are you using, Kindle, IPAD?
