Digital Manga Inc. has posted updates for its Kickstarter campaigns for Kaworu Watashiya’s Kodomo no Jikan ~ A Child’s Time manga and four boys’ love manga by Delico Psyche.
The company explained that the original planned order for fulfillment for its three remaining Kickstarter campaigns was for Kodomo no Jikan, then Wonder 3, then Delico Psyche. However, due to a change in licensing agreement with Tezuka Productions over Osamu Tezuka’s Wonder 3 manga, Digital Manga Inc. will now fulfill the Wonder 3 campaign first.
Digital Manga Inc. stated it is working on producing the merchandise for the Kodomo no Jikan campaign, and will start shipping out those merchandise rewards once they arrive. The company will then work on printing physical books after the Wonder 3 campaign is fulfilled.
In regard to the Delico Psyche campaign, the company will also still work on sending out rewards that are not books first, tentatively starting around the end of the second quarter 2020.
The Digital Manga Inc. representative who posted the updates to the two campaigns offered this explanation for the overall delay of all three of its campaigns:
And for the sake of transparency, DMI was overly-ambitious with trying to fulfill several campaigns at the same time. Originally, each campaign was run by their own dedicated managers and we were a bigger team overall. However, now we’re a handful of employees trying our best to get these campaigns fulfilled while still working on other responsibilities. I don’t want this to be interpreted as an excuse but instead, as a glimpse into the reality of the situation.
