On June 3rd, 2014 we announced that volumes one and two of Captain Ken by famous manga artist Osamu Tezuka will be fully translated into English through our Kickstarter. We are happy to announce that we have finally reached our first goal of 13,000 as of June 18th, 2014. Now both volumes of Captain Ken will officially be translated into English by DMP Platinum through our Kickstarter and be shipped onto western shores for Kickstarter backers to receive in February 2015.

However, the fun has only started as we are continuing to move forward onto our stretch goals! At 14,000 all backers will receive a set of exclusive limited edition Captain Ken trading card sets. In a set of four, each card has detailed descriptions of characters and images  pulled from the stunning artwork of the books. Not only that, but if you bring your cards to our convention booths (Digital Manga, Akadot, or Project H), then you’ll receive three dollars off any purchase.

At our final stretch goal of 16,000, all backers will receive a beautiful 24×36 poster of some of the iconic scenes from the volume. There are two posters, one for each volume and backers will receive the poster according to the volume they ordered. If you order both volumes then you will receive both posters!

Backers can pledge to the Captain Ken Kickstarter here:

  1. Congrats on the licencing and translation!

    I just bought your “Demon City Shinjuku: Complete Edition” and it’s amazing! Light novels usually seem too short for me, but the complete edition made it nice and meaty! You guys are great, with all the legal translations and sales and stuff. It’s publishers like you that let some kid in the States be able to read Japanese Pulp-Fiction!

  2. Not related to Captain Ken; I can’t open pages, getting black page with “jQuery Lightbox Plugin (balupton edition)” written O_o
    Can you fix that please?
    Thank you.
