All stretch goals reached; campaign ends on May 10

Digital Manga Inc.'s Kickstarter campaign to publish Izumi Matsumoto's romantic comedy manga Kimagure Orange Road reached its fifth and final stretch goal of US$119,900 on Thursday. This will allow the company to publish a sixth and final 3-in-1 omnibus volume for the manga.

The campaign will end on May 10 at 6:00 p.m. EDT. As of press time, the campaign has raised US$120,912.

The campaign previously updated on April 26, 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. The update noted that this change was made to the campaign by request of Matsumoto.

Backer tiers range from US$1 to US$1,500, and rewards include: digital or print editions of the manga, bookmarker magnets, a pub glass, USB drives, beach towels, sunglasses, eco bags, wall scrolls, signed soundtrack CDs, stickers, reproduction prints, reproduction shikishi boards, posters, and an artbook.

Other add-on merchandise includes: a set of seven posters; a USB drive; a "beach bundle" that includes a beach towel, sunglasses, and an orange eco bag; a large limited wallscroll; a pub glass; a set of three different stickers, bookmarks, and canvas illustrations. The merchandise add-ons range from US$12 to US$80, and all of the merchandise add-ons are only available to pledges of the US$20-US$170 reward tiers.
