Digital Manga Inc.'s Kickstarter campaign to publish Izumi Matsumoto's romantic comedy manga Kimagure Orange Road reached its fourth stretch goal of US$105,900 on Saturday. This will allow the company to publish a fifth 3-in-1 omnibus volume for the manga.
The final omnibus volume will be a stretch goal at US$119,900.
The Kickstarter reached its initial goal of US$34,900 on April 4 to publish the first 3-in-1 omnibus volume, and reached the first stretch goal on April 20 to print the second omnibus volume. The campaign reached the second stretch goal on Monday to print the third omnibus volume, and the third stretch goal on Tuesday to print the fourth omnibus volume.
The campaign updated on Monday, making all of the manga's 3-in-1 omnibus volumes available as add-ons for all backers. Backers can add all planned omnibus volumes of the manga to their pledge in both physical and digital versions with a corresponding cost.
