October CB GofundMe is now up.

A month of donations for his surgery bills gets you anime, manga, and/or hentai.
Update: Ok, so Aria's gotten funded for all three seasons of dubbed Blu-Ray goodness. Now, if you've been sitting on the fence, you only got about five days left to partake of that Kickstarter.

Update 2: So the Wonder 3 Kickstarter covers are now up, but no news on KOR yet. Mad

Edit: Oh, and I just asked, and no, you can't trade your old Aria DVDs for the Blu-Rays.

Oh, and Animeigo just Tweeted that they have no bananas or Bubblegum Crisis UEs today. Or ever? [They did consider maybe refunding it in a basic edition in a future non-BGC Kickstarter, though, when I asked...]

New Kickstarter out there for massive First of the North Star fans! It's a weird special ebook thing, designed to look like a normal manga (even has paper, because it feels nice, and a cover), but inside, it has a specially loaded ebook that has all of Fist of the North Star in it! And apparently, you can also switch freely between Japanese and English. So it has the neat book thing and 18 volumes of Fist of the North Star in it.
On the negative side, it costs about $250 USD. Also, I have no idea how good the English translations will be. And it requires batteries for some reason (seriously, no rechargeable? Not even an option?)

So I'm not sure if the September GoFundMe reached its goal. But the new one's up ATM, with the link above me.

Update on KOR:
Quote:
Matsumoto's condition has improved enough to grant him some mobility. While he was not in good enough condition to sign all of the merchandise and create shikishis of characters as he originally intended, he was able to hand-draw and sign 10 shikishis featuring his mascot character. An image of one of the mascot shikishis will be displayed below. Here are the amendments to the affected tiers:

[$1500 Tier]

The Shikishi is hand-drawn but not signed.
A digital reproduction sticker of Matsumoto's signature will be included.

[$1450 Tier]

Matsumoto was only able to hand-draw one character shikishi while in good health. 10 copies of the original were made. The affected backers will have a choice between receiving one of the character copies (unsigned), or the hand-drawn and signed mascot shikishi. Please message us through the Kickstarter messaging system with your choice.

KOR update:
Quote:
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the original manager of this Kickstarter campaign is no longer with us. Because of this sudden change, other departments have had to take on the responsibility of this project -- on top of their other duties -- which has caused much delay in responses and updates to our loyal fans and backers.

We at Digital Manga, Inc. would like to wholeheartedly apologize for this, and promise to try to stay in contact with our customers from now on.

Current status of Kimagure Orange Road…

We are still awaiting the final two physical volumes of the series to arrive in our office. Due to an accident in transport, volumes 5 and 6 were completely lost and need to be fully reprinted from scratch.

In the meantime, we are working on sorting through your messages regarding our previous update and hope to be able to follow up with you all within a week or two.


Under the Air:

Current status of Under the Air…

We are still working on shipping out the remaining orders daily


Wonder 3 and Magma:

Current status of Wonder 3…

The only title with a delay is Osamu Tezuka's Ambassador Magma… Most of the other titles included in this campaign are ready to be finalized for send-off to our printers.


Also, a certain KnJ KS just got updated, too.

Update on the GoFundMe. About 15 days left, and $450 to go.
