Gardena, CA (April 13, 2016)

One of the more popular reward tier of this campaign which quickly sold out is the “$850-Orange PVC Madness” pledge tier, which features a PVC figurine of fan favorite character, Madoka, sporting a RED-hot bikini. Because of the strong demand for this specialized item, DMI has gone out of their way to bring in an additional 6 more available spots for this reward tier. Pledge here now!

(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.

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

Backer Spotlight: First backer but not first timer!

“I’ve come to trust DMP with not only my money, but with Tezuka’s reputation. I know that DMP will do their best to honor him and create a high-quality, wonderfully translated volume at a price that won’t break the bank.”
—Mahlon Landis, Clockwork Apple Kickstarter campaign backer

Mahlon is our very first Clockwork Apple Kickstarter campaign backer, but she’s definitely not a first timer! She hails from Oklahoma and is about to graduate with a degree in Language Arts Education. (Yay! Congratulations, Mahlon!) She loves “reading, writing, baking, ballet dancing, and getting crafty in [her] free time.” Besides her interest in anime and manga, she’s learning to code this year, so if anyone has website or book recommendations for HTML/CSS, Java, or Python lessons, we’re sure she’d be happy to hear them. (About learning to code, she says, “It’s kind of difficult, but it’ll be totally worth it in the end.”) A lady with a long list of favorites, Mahlon has been a fan of anime and manga for almost eleven years, and we’re glad she was willing to answer a few of our questions in what little spare time she has!

Capture

Digital Manga, Inc.: What was your first introduction to Osamu Tezuka’s work?

Mahlon Landis: My first job was shelving books at a local library, and one day I stumbled across Tezuka’s Buddha. It looked pretty interesting and different, so I checked it out and zoomed through all of the volumes in the matter of a month. It was moving, gorgeous to look at, and highly entertaining, which is something I’ve come to realize is the norm for Tezuka’s works.

DMI: What keeps you coming back for more?

ML: His ability to create incredibly human tales is amazing to me, and I keep coming back to him because I know I’ll always feel enlightened once I finish one of his books.

DMI: You’re the first backer to support this campaign! What enticed you to pledge so quickly?

ML: This is the fourth Tezuka Kickstarter that I’ve had the privilege of backing, and through all of that I’ve come to trust DMP with not only my money, but with Tezuka’s reputation. I know that DMP will do their best to honor him and create a high-quality, wonderfully translated volume at a price that won’t break the bank (which is important for a poor college kid like myself). I know that DMP will do the job right, and that’s why I jumped the gun and pledged so quickly.

DMI: You’re trying to convince a friend to also support this campaign; what do you tell them?

ML: Hey, you. Yeah, you. Manga is awesome. Tezuka is awesome! Don’t you want an opportunity to bring more Tezuka to the English-speaking world? Maybe want some cool swag, or a chance to get your name in the book? Want to be a part of something AWESOME? Then go pledge today! I promise you won’t regret it. ;)

Currently, Mahlon is reading Kyoko Okazaki’s Helter Skelter and watching Sailor Moon Crystal and Ore Monogatri!! Check out her great list of favorites!

Favorite…
Anime: Princess Tutu and The Twelve Kingdoms
Manga: Naoki Urasawa’s Monster and Tezuka’s Buddha
Movie: Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure
Book: A Clockwork Orange

Thank you again for your time, Mahlon, and we hope your pledge to Clockwork Apple lives up to your expectations!

If you know someone who might be interested in supporting Digital Manga’s efforts to publish Osamu Tezuka’s work in English, please have them take a look at the campaign page!

GOOOOOAL!

goalGuess what, guys and gals! Sometime between last night and this morning, we hit our initial goal to translate, publish, and print Clockwork Apple by Osamu Tezuka! /does happy dance/

Brave Dan

I’m excited to let you know more about our FIRST STRETCH GOAL for $18,200 to print Brave Dan in English for the FIRST TIME EVER. So, here’s the deal.

ALL of our backers who pledge ANY amount ($1+) will receive a Brave Dan colorized, high definition desktop wallpaper, which will be created specifically for this campaign! All of the backers who pledge the “Back to Basics” tier and up ($20+) will ALSO receive a Brave Dan surprise when we ship out everyone’s rewards.

You may also, of course, ADD ON either the print or digital version of Brave Dan (or both!) to your current pledge.

$20 Brave Dan PRINT (domestic shipping included; international backers please add $4)
$8 Brave Dan DIGITAL

After you’ve adjusted your pledge, please message us to let us know. We will make a note of it on our end and send you a confirmation.

We’re telling you more about this now so that you can plan your pledge, but please remember that we WILL NOT be able to provide these ADD ON items unless we reach the stretch goal of $18,200. So please spread the word so that we can print Brave Dan, too, and give you all what you’ve been waiting for!

StretchGoal2-Barbara

Stretch Goal #2

When we reach $22,900, we’ll be able to reprint the Tezuka classic Barbara for fans who were unable to pick up a copy from the first printing! If and when this happens, we’ll let you know how to add on to your order a print copy of Barbara! (You can ADD ON the digital version right now!) ALSO, we’ll have freebies for every backer; MORE INFORMATION ONCE THIS GOAL IS UNLOCKED.
