With an ambitious end goal of $589,000 to publish all six titles, total 31 volumes, Digital Manga’s campaign to fund the localization and production of the books, will start out with a $380,000 goal to get the first two titles published, The Three Eyed One & Rainbow Parakeet, then following a $475,000 stretch goal to get Wonder 3 and Alabaster into production, and finally The Vampires and Birdman Anthology for its final goal. Each of the title series will also include a forward from long time manga scholar and author Fred Schodt. The campaign will also include many reward tiers to backers who support this project. Rare and highly sought after Tezuka related prizes include: the original Astro Boy Poster Schematic that is 31″x43″ on heavy bond paper stock that glows in the dark to reveal Astro Boy’s inner working parts in color, Digital Manga’s one-of-a-kind customized 4’ foot long Astro Boy exhibit statue, Astro Boy plush, retro Astro Boy Tin windup toys, Tezuka figurines. Planned release date for a majority of the series are set at summer 2015.

Digital Manga’s ambitious endeavor is to deliver all volumes of publications to the supporters in one big printing for 2015 instead of sporadic releases throughout the year. Not only will the successful campaign help bring in these titles, it will also help Digital Manga to achieve their goal of localizing more Tezuka titles for the future.  DMI’s mission is to share the love of Tezuka not to just English and Japanese speakers, but to all audiences as well.
