Anybody interested in catching up on a classic example of shonen romantic comedy manga might be interested in the Kickstarter to get this series printed in English:

The Kickstarter to publish the Kimagure Orange Road manga series in English has reached the initial goal. The first 3 volumes will be printed in English in omnibus format. Further stretch goals will allow them to publish omnibus volumes 2-6.


Because the series is such a long one, spanning to 18 volumes in its original Japanese release, we’re going to release the English editions into six omnibus editions—each omnibus containing three volumes of the original release. Yes, you read correctly, we’re packing 3 average size graphic novels into each omnibus, totaling 6 omnibus volumes. (That’s over 500+ pages in each omnibus!)

Our initial goal of $34,900, will cover the very first omnibus vol.1 (Collecting the vol.1-3 from the original Japanese edition release.), with Omnibus, 2,3,4,5,6 , as stretch goals. The stretch goal for omnibus vol.2 will be at $56,900; omnibus vol.3 at $74,900; omnibus vol.4 at $89,900; omnibus vol.5 at $105,900; and omnibus vol.6 at $119,900. As each additional volume stretch goal is met, you would be able to add-on them to your pledge (Some reward tiers are excluded). New reward tiers will be available once all the stretch goals are met. (Feel free to upgrade your reward tier to the new stretch goal tiers once they’re achieved.)

The kickstarter has reached the point where volume 2 has been unlocked -- once they update people can begin adding that to their order. Once all those new orders come in that should easily reach unlocking volume 3 and so on.
