On June 3rd, 2014 we announced that volumes one and two of Captain Ken by famous manga artist Osamu Tezuka will be fully translated into English through our Kickstarter. We are happy to announce that we have finally reached our first goal of 13,000 as of June 18th, 2014. Now both volumes of Captain Ken will officially be translated into English by DMP Platinum through our Kickstarter and be shipped onto western shores for Kickstarter backers to receive in February 2015.
However, the fun has only started as we are continuing to move forward onto our stretch goals! At 14,000 all backers will receive a set of exclusive limited edition Captain Ken trading card sets. In a set of four, each card has detailed descriptions of characters and images pulled from the stunning artwork of the books. Not only that, but if you bring your cards to our convention booths (Digital Manga, Akadot, or Project H), then you’ll receive three dollars off any purchase.
At our final stretch goal of 16,000, all backers will receive a beautiful 24×36 poster of some of the iconic scenes from the volume. There are two posters, one for each volume and backers will receive the poster according to the volume they ordered. If you order both volumes then you will receive both posters!

Saturday, May 24th, 2014 | 12:00PM PST (Noon) | Room Panels 3
The DMI/DMG panel started on time, at 12, noon. — We opened by applauding to the crowd, letting them know this was the biggest response we’ve had for a DMI/DMG panel for all of our conventions of 2014. The first set of slides informed customers of our newest releases, including the newest Kickstarter campaign for Captain Ken. We then explained the workings behind DMG and how it’s like to have your name in a manga. A lot of people scooted to the front of their seats to learn about the behind the scenes process of translating, editing and lettering for manga books. After the panel ended, we received a large handful of questions about our newest licenses, particularly for “No Pants, No Problem”, and more questions about the specifics in becoming a member of the Digital Manga Guild. Press was also there to report on our newest licenses and announcements.
Saturday, May 24th, 2014 | 10:00PM PST | Room Panels 2
Our Project-H panel at Fanime 2014 was a big success. With a line waiting to get in, the Project-H panel was able to open the doors to its fans right on time. The room could seat 800 and from the start, we had about 480 filled. Though fans were stumbling over each other to get a front row seating, we were not able to start the panel on time due to technical difficulties with the large theater screen, provided by the hotel. We improvised and played a game of Jan Ken Pon (Rock Paper Scissors) with the crowd for them to have a chance to earn some free books. There was a tie breaker and both guests had to stand in front of the stage for a “face off” to see who would be the true winner of our hentai manga. We delayed the crowd as much as we could until the Fanime staffers told us there was nothing they could do to remove the technical difficulty. Although there was a large black square covering a part of our presentation, we joked, “It’s okay, we’re used to being censored.” The crowd was very understanding and laughed at our humor.
We gave the crowd an interactive panel that made them “Ooou!” and “Ahh!” over our various slides. Fans were excited to see new titles and the new plans we have for Project-H. As soon as the slides were over, we opened the remainder of the panel for Q&A. Fans had all kinds of questions from, “Can you release yuri?” to “What are the current hentai trends in Japan compared to the US?” Anime News Network was there as press and covered our newest licenses and announcements.

| Age Called Blue by Est Em:
Billy is the guitarist for a relatively unknown band called The Idiots. On a fateful Wednesday, two perceived unrelated events occurred: (1) his idol passed away, and (2) his roommate stole both his money and guitar. Surrounding these two events is a series of chance meetings, painful realizations, excessive alcoholism, listlessness, flashbacks, and love. This is a terribly poignant story defining the unyielding love found between a vocalist and his guitarist.
Included with this manga are a couple of side stories. One is a story of the fantastical love between an artist and his subject. The other is a story of childhood friends turned lovers and their journey through life.
| Sweet Blue Flowers Vol. 1 by Takako Shimura:
Once childhood friends, sweet Aki and shy Fumi, unexpectedly reunite the year they enter separate all-girls high schools.
Fumi has learned that romance can have its thorns but in meeting an upperclassman she discovers that, like a flower hibernating through the winter, love too can grow and bloom again come spring. But has there in fact been a little flower, almost too small to see, at her side all along…?
Join Aki and Fumi in the first volume of Takako Shimura’s touching coming-of-age series as they discover more about who they are, and who they can become.
|Kimagure Orange Road Vol. 1 by Izumi Matsumoto:
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.
Written by Izumi Matsumoto and serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump, it was later adapted into an anime series broadcast on Nippon Television, animated by Studio Pierrot and directed by veteran animator Osamu Kobayashi with character designs by Akemi Takada and scripts by Kenji Terada.
