Aims to raise US$45,000 to restock Finder #1-6, US$5,000 more for A Foreign Love Affair

North American manga publisher Digital Manga launched a Kickstarter campaign on Wednesday to restrock volumes 1-6 of Ayano Yamane's Finder boys-love manga. The campaign has a US$45,000 goal and will end on February 16 at 3:13 p.m. (39 days).

The story follows freelance journalist Akihito Takaba and his relationship with the mysterious Asami, a powerful leader in Japan's underworld society.

Digital Manga licensed the series in 2010 and released seven volumes to date. Pledge rewards include Fujoshi/Fudanshi rubber bracelets, Finder manga volumes, posters, Juné tote bags, and YaoiCon 2015 regular and VIP badges.

The campaign has two stretch goals. The first stretch goal of US$50,000 will also restock Yamane's A Foreign Love Affair manga. The second stretch goal of US$52,000 will unlock Fujoshi/Fudanshi black tank tops.

Digital Manga successfully funded a print edition of Osamu Tezuka's Ludiwig B manga last month and his Captain Ken manga in June. Digital Manga also used Kickstarter to raise funds to reprint Tezuka's Barbara and Swallowing the Earth manga. The English release of Barbara was nominated for an Eisner in 2013.
