Things have been moving along decently for the Kickstarter for Kimagure Orange Road but it’s now taken an interesting turn with some new options that will delight fans:

“Due to a recent request by the creator of Kimagure Orange Road, Izumi Matsumoto, Digital Manga will now be offering the remaining Kimagure Orange Road Omnibuses, vol. 3-6 as early Add-Ons before reaching their originally intended stretch goals. Omnibuses vol.3-6 are now available for backers to add on to their existing pledges. Omnibus vol.2 is currently available also as an add-on, as it has reached its originally intended stretch goal.”

While out of my price range, this is fantastic news for fans that want to ensure they get the whole series in one whack without any worries of it being incomplete.

This release will be re-translated, re-edited and re-lettered for both new print and digital runs. The layout for those looking for just the books is now set with:

The eighteen-volume series has long been sought after for a full and officially translated release since the anime was picked up in the 90′s by AnimEigo where it got VHS, LD and DVD releases for the OVAs, movie and TV series.

The series was written by Izumi Matsumoto and was serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump. It gained fame with the anime adaptation that was produced by Studio Pierrot and directed by veteran animator Osamu Kobayashi with character designs by Akemi Takada and scripts by Kenji Terada.

Plot Concept: Teenage romance meets fantasy in this series as a love triangle develops between the main character, an indecisive esper named Kyōsuke Kasuga, Madoka Ayukawa, a mercurial and enigmatic girl with a tough past, and Hikaru Hiyama, Madoka’s ditzy and energetic best friend. Kyōsuke falls in love with Madoka, and Madoka wants to return those feelings, but can not because of Hikaru’s involvement with Kyōsuke.
