(PR) Digital Manga, Inc. – Sights Now Focused on Kimagure Orange Road Stretch Goals!

KOR Stretchgoal

Initial Goal Funded! DMI’s Crowd Funding For A Favorite 80’s Classic Is On Its Way!

Gardena, CA (April 6, 2016)
With almost amazing speed, the crowd funding power of the people has spoken… within a few day’s time, the initial goal of Digital Manga, Inc.’s project is funded! But it’s far from over. The funding is only for the first Omnibus. There are 5 volumes more to go! The first stretch goal of the campaign, of $56,900, will unlock Omnibus 2, (which collects the next 3 volumes of the original Japanese release.) Once unlocked, Kickstarter backers will be able to add-on this second volume to their new or existing pledge. From that, the momentum will easily pickup for funding of Omnibus 3, and so forth.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/digitalmanga/publish-kimagure-orange-road-classic-manga

We have several reward tiers that have sold out! And requests for add-ons to be available from other reward tiers to be added to backer’s existing tiers. Comments and feedback from our supporters do not go ignored, and  considerations for new add-ons and new tiers will be made over the course of the campaign, pending on the progress of the funding.

Again, Digital Manga Inc. (DMI), thanks all backers for their continued support, and would to remind all that the mission is not over! As of the 6th day into the campaign, we are still about 79K short from funding all volumes. Only with backer support can we hope to bring this wonder work to your hands.

(PR) Digital Manga, Inc. Launches Classic Shounen Manga Kickstarter Campaign: Kimagure Orange Road

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:48 pm

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Kimagure_DMPnewsletter

 

Do You Long For Some Manga Nostalgia? DMI’s Crowd Funding For A Favorite 80’s Classic Is Here!

Gardena, CA (March 31, 2016)
Digital Manga Inc. (DMI), a long-time publisher of manga, launches their next new Kickstarter campaign to crowd fund the classic shounen manga, Kimagure Orange Road, for an all new print and digital release! Originally published in Japan from the mid to late 80’s, the Kimagure Orange Road (KOR) manga series ran for a full 18 volumes! Digital Manga’s plans, through the Kickstarter platform, will be to re-release the series, and collect them into six Omnibus volumes—each volume comprising three volumes from the original Japanese editions (over 550+pgs). The campaign will start off with an initial goal of $34,900, to cover the publication of the first omnibus, with Omnibus vol.2,3,4,5, and 6, each with their own stretch goals. The 40 day running campaign will help spread word to bring back long time fans back to this long remembered classic.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/digitalmanga/publish-kimagure-orange-road-classic-manga

Written by creator Izumi Matsumoto, Kimagure Orange Road tells the story of an indecisive high school student, Kyōsuke Kasuga, specially gifted with ESP, who is intertwined in a love triangle with two other high school girls—tough and introverted Madoka Ayukawa, and happy go-lucky Hikaru Hiyama—both which are also best friends. The series quickly became a classic hit (spinning off novelizations, OVAs, and a full long running anime TV series), because it not only mixed in themes of innocence, love, friendship, comedy and hi-jinks together, it set the standard for teenage-high school-triangle romance for many manga and anime story-telling for years to come.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/digitalmanga/publish-kimagure-orange-road-classic-manga

Digital Manga picked up and rescued the series back in 2014 through its Digital Manga Guild initiative, releasing the remaining individual volumes on their ebook platform, eManga.com. With its continued customer interest, the series, in a short amount of time, proved worthy for a full print publication, including extra special attention to its re-localization for new English audiences to enjoy. Creator Matsumoto, excited for this project, has also offered special unique and one-of-a-kind KOR collector’s items, all signed by him, ranging from hand-drawn shikishis, art books and prints! Listen to him speak now! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oScqRvouuP0&feature=gp-n-y&google_comment_id=z12xu1zp4xuqcjilr234trgp3xfdf1kkx )

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/digitalmanga/publish-kimagure-orange-road-classic-manga

Basic Specs per each Omnibus:
-Antique Natural paper stock—(For that classic retro feel!!)
-Size: (5-1/8” x 7-3/16”) (B6 size)
-Language: Localized (translated) to English
-Right to Left Manga reading format
-Pages: avg.~550pgs ea. omnibus
-MSRP: $24.95
-Rated 13+
-Release date: Omnibus 1 ~Aug.-Dec 2016 ;  Stretch Goal: Omnibus 2-6 ~Dec.2016

High hopes with the Kimagure Orange Road Kickstarter campaign are riding with Digital Manga, Inc., as this would open doors to more variety and out-of-the-box projects in the future. With available crowd funding platforms like Kickstarter and the sea of untapped manga Digital Manga, Inc. can bring to the masses, DMI is able to gauge and fulfill the interests of the fan community’s faster and easier with little risk to everyone!

Wonder 3 – the final 3 days! Please support!

We’re down to the last 72 hours of our Wonder 3 campaign and we have quite a hurdle to reach if we want to see this great three-book series published in English (in hardcover!). If you haven’t already let your friends and family know about this great Tezuka title, now’s the time!

Remember, you can pledge as little as $70 to get ALL THREE hardcovers in the “Shinichi Hoshi” pledge tier. We also still have several limited tiers open for pledges.

  • Black Jack at $151 (just THREE left!)
  • Go on a picnic! at $174 (limited to ONE!)
  • Leo/Kimba #2 at $218 (limited to TWO!)

We need 262 more backers at the $70 tier in the next three days to make this happen, and I know we can do it… That means that if you, our current backers, convinced just ONE person each to pledge for the “Shinichi Hoshi” tier, we’d make the goal with some $$ to spare. Let’s get a move on!

Thanks for sticking with us on this amazing journey. Ganbaru! -VED

Wonder 3 Kickstarter campaign- New, limited edition TIERS!!!

GET ‘EM WHILE THEY’RE HOT.

Yesterday, we added 6 high-end tiers for discerning Tezuka fans,  including one with the very, VERY rare “Goast Man” Japanese language hardcover (two now already gone). A couple include the ever popular Jungle Emperor Leo (or, you may know him as Kimba the White Lion!), and a couple more include the irrepressible characters from Black Jack.

Our indomitable production team is in the process of putting together images for you to peruse at your leisure, and I will upload those to the main page as soon as I have them, but for now I wanted to let you get a jump start on pledging for these great items. (I will send another update when I have the images up.) Plus, all the following tiers come with the Wonder 3 three-volume set in both digital AND hardcover formats.

Make sure to check out the tiers themselves before you pledge so that you know exactly what you’re pledging for!
