    Sure motivates you to pre-order, doesn't it?!

    • Franken Fran volume 1-2 release February 2016. I ordered July 2018 from rightstuf. February 2019 I get the "we're so bummed" email informing me that it's out of print and secondhand copies all go for $90. So basically you had a window of less than 16 months to buy this or it's gone forever. What, did they only print like 1000 of these?

        Unfortunately, in situations like this we are at the mercy of the manufacturer. Unless we've been told that the item will never be available again, we'll keep it on the website in case some more copies appear. I would suggest using the 'Email Me When Available' option on the product page on our website. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

        • No worries, obviously rightstuf is not at fault here. Thanks.

              After this production, I will take a break from new acquisitions for Haikasoru a while and would like to see what I can do the next. Meanwhile, please check our backlist titles that you haven't read yet. https://viz.com/haikasoru

                      Since this hasn't been updated in a while...

                      A fourth stretch goal was added at $125,000. A new story will be created since that goal was ALSO reached earlier today (10/31).

                      $125,682 pledged of $50,000 goal
                      490 backers
                      5 days to go.

                      If you want a say in what happens in the original story, you can back the newer $750 tier. [Any tier above also has a say.]

                      Update #9 has more info about the tier if interested:
