Not long ago we reported that Crunchyroll had provided some new changes for their Crunchyroll Manga service, with various titles now going into the vault as they have finished serialisation while newer titles would be made simulpub only (i.e. older chapters head to the vault after a certain amount of time).
Today, Crunchyroll have announced their next step for the service with a special announcement. They have once again partnered with Kodansha Comics to offer a whole new set of manga titles for the platform that will be available to read soon for worldwide outside Asia territories. The titles announced are as follows:

Fifty centuries ago, the people who lost a war against the core lost their right to reside legitimately in APOSIMZ, and were left behind on the extremely cold surface. They face the spreading Frame disease. And aggressive automatons which appear frequently on the ruins level. Yet even so, somehow people survive.
