Digital Manga Inc. Launches First June Imprint Yaoi Kickstarter Campaign

main image 2

Restocking the complete series of Finder Vol. 1 – 6 by Ayano Yamane; undeniably one of the best yaoi manga series in BL existence!

Launching for the first time a brand new Kickstarter campaign for Juné imprint series Finder by Ayano Yamane. The Kickstarter campaign aims to restock the complete Finder series Volumes 1 – 6. Finder is highly regarded as being one of the best yaoi manga series in boy’s love existence! The Finder Project Kickstarter campaign is 100% designed and dedicated to all boy’s love fans and aims to be a highly intensive fan-driven project. 

Finder Vol. 1 – 6 by Ayano Yamane 
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/digitalmanga/finder-vol-1-6-restock ]

The Finder series is a yaoi manga revolving around photographer Akihito Takaba and Japan’s notorious crime lord Ryuichi Asami. While out on assignment trying to document the illegal activities of the Japanese underworld, photographer Akihito crosses paths with the dark and mysterious leader Asami. Asami takes Akihito captive, in an attempt to subjugate and possess him. After a turn of events, both Akihito and Asami come to hold deep affection for one another, though never coming to realize or wanting to admit/succumb to the impending love. Despite circumstances beyond their control, they always find themselves drawn to one another. Will their feelings of love, lust, and desire ever become mutual? The Finder series is a high-pace yaoi with a dark theme and an addictive and captivating storyline that showcases hidden desires as Akihito ventures into the brooding darkness that lurks behind the Japanese underworld and the new found love captured in the viewfinder.

Finder Vol. 1 – 6 by Ayano Yamane https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/digitalmanga/finder-vol-1-6-restock ]

The campaign has a goal of $45,000 to restock this six volume series with a stretch goal at $50,000 and another stretch goal at $52,000.  A majority of the tier packages feature fan-based rewards as well as many book-only based tiers, and some even include badges to YaoiCon 2015. (For more about YaoiCon, visithttp://www.yaoicon.com.) The planned restocking date for this series is set for April 2015 or possibly earlier. Digital Manga attempts to adopt a new way of restocking beloved out of stock yaoi titles from the Juné, 801 Media, and DokiDoki imprint labels while utilizing fan-driven demand for restocking projects. With the success of the Finder Project, Digital Manga plans to move forward with even more yaoi restocking campaigns designed to meet the growing yaoi fanbase for older titles. DMI hopes to be able to restock a large majority of the out of stock yaoi titles in future with the help of the yaoi fanbase community.
