Kickstarter/Crowd Funding news:
– Grisaia: Phantom Trigger Opens Crowdfunding for Improved Production
I sincerely apologize for the lack of updates. We are working on the Kimagure Orange Road Kickstarter and expect to finish that project by the end of January. Once we finish that project, we will be dedicating our time to Kodomo no Jikan.
Right now, we are set to release Kodomo no Jikan omnibus vol. 1 digitally to our backers by next Friday (August 10). It is a little nudge forward but soon you will own a digital copy of the first omnibus. A week after backers have received their digital copy, we will publish it on the eManga store at eManga.com. (Omnibus vol. 1 will be print-ready as well)
Despite what you hear, we are still working on publishing manga and more importantly, working on kickstarters. I appreciate your patience throughout this process.
And by looking through the comments, I noticed a lot of comments regarding updates(lack thereof). While I am always disheartened to update little to no progress, I will try my best to post updates on small details and things of that nature.
Please note that I am also in charge of a department here at DMI but if you message us via Kickstarter, I will respond to you and answer to the best of my capabilities.
