New Yaoi License

i190987

9781569701850

Ja-Jannn!! ~ New #Yaoi License: 

Soredemo, Yasashii Koi wo Suru by Kou Yoneda!! 
English title: "Even So, I Will Love You Tenderly"
Release date: TBA (sometime spring 2015??) 
Will be in both print & digital!

This was probably one of the most highly requested title this year and we're happy to say that we've officially licensed it! ଘ(੭*ˊᵕˋ)੭* ̀ˋ
For those who don't know, soredemo is the spin-off story featuring Onoda and Deguchi (OTP) from the main story: No Touching At All (Doushitemo Furetakunai)!!

For those wondering, we do have plans to restock No Touching At All but it might be a bit difficult. Though, we're going to try our best to do it one way or another to make it happen! * ^ * In the meantime, we do have it digitally available: http://bit.ly/NoTouchingAtAll

Follow-Up Answers to Tezuka KS

Tezuka World Release Kickstarter:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/digitalmanga/tezukas-world-release-publishing-osamu-tezuka-mang

1. What happens to Stretch #1/2 books if only the initial goal is funded?

Titles in stretch goal 1 & 2 will not get published if only the initial is funded. Decision to add to a future campaign will be decided at a much later time, depending on the licensor’s decision.

2. What happens to all the books if the kickstarter doesn't get funded?

We're not sure at this time, it'll depend on lots of varying factors such as Tezuka Production/Licensor, etc.

3.  Does the licenses expire? (licensing time-frame)

Maybe, it'll depend on the outcome of this campaign and Tezuka Production’s decision on what to do next.

4. Will there be a sufficient print run to supply the market if the kickstarter gets funded?

If the first goal gets funded, there will be enough to supply books to the backers first and foremost…  depending on how much gets funded after the first goal, will determine the print run will be if any for the open market.

Please note: Books being distributed to the open market will be released one volume at a time over a period of 2-3 years vs. through the campaign you’ll get it all at once

5. Are future kickstarters always going to be in big batches like this one?

It may or may not but regardless, we will rethink our overall kickstarter strategy in terms on tiers/stretch goals, etc, to meet the needs of our backers.
