Good to hear that the whole series will see print.

Glad to see it got funded too. I was critical of how they had structured the kickstarter itself, but the change they made to it later on seems to have given them just the boost they needed.

I backed this project, so I'm clearly thrilled to see that it blew its last stretch goal by an additional 30K+.

Apart from the initial set up where Volumes 2-6 were stretch goals, the one thing I did not like about the way DMP handled this project was that they provided no information regarding the books. Would they have slip covers, feature higher quality paper and color inserts? Unlike their yaoi Kickstarters, all of which were well run, DMP did not answer these and was very sporadic in answering questions posted in the comment section. I don't know if the KOR campaign was being handled by a different person, but I really feel that the person who ran the SAKIRA and Finder campaigns did a much better job at keeping everyone informed.

Glad this is now fully funded. Really miss the times when AnimEigo did fund raising for Macross SDFM TV DVDs, Urusei Yatsura TV DVDs, and Kimagure Orange Road TV DVDs. Participated in all of those, so quite glad the KOR manga is finally getting translated! An extremely long waited project for fans like us from the original release back in the 1980s!

Just hope new fans are open to reading this series, not sure if the plot and especially the character designs will age well. Time will tell....

Part of the reason I was interested in the series was because of it's age actually. It was before my time but I had always heard good things about it, so I feel like it's something I should read for its historical importance if nothing else.
