You know what we need... a Black Jack anime sols banner on Crunchyroll, they had one for Creamy Mami so Black Jack should get one too. We need to speed up those pledges to get the second DVD boxset out. I wonder where the pledgers of the first one are.

Those banners are paid ads, so I'm assuming AnimeSols, with time running out on their first venture, chose to spend some of their money to promote that. They probably have limited funds for marketing, so it's really up to them if they want to spend it on ads for the Black Jack campaign.

The thing is, a LOT of people prefer to pledge at the last minute, as nervewracking as it is for those of us who watch it closely. I suspect it's related to the complaint a lot of people have about being charged once the funding is met, rather than when the pledge period ends. Theoretically, you could be charged anytime over a 3-month period. A lot of people don't like that uncertainty, and would rather pledge right before it ends.

The other thing is, Animesols doesn't "store" your charge and shipping info (which is kind of annoying, if you've pledged and/or repledged to various projects, you have to re-enter it all every time), and if you pledge early enough, you won't be charged because your info has "expired." After Black Jack 1 ended, I got an email asking me to re-enter my credit card info again. So I wasn't charged right when the goal was met, but when I fixed that.

AnimeSols has uploaded the third Tezuka film special, Bagi (although they're calling it Baggy)

http://animesols.com/

I wouldn't mind if tons of people just made $5 or $10 pledges, even those add up quickly.

Meanwhile Black Jack needs only $12,685 to reach it's goal and has less than 11 days

I imagine that practice is designed so Sols doesn't have to follow the PCI compliance rules, which are very strict in regards to how customer credit card information should be stored for future use.

Sounds better than being scammed.

Anyway, eight days left for Black Jack, which is currently at $5,375. Oh, and Sols just uploaded a pic of their current boxes for Mami and Black Jack on their Twitter and FB.

AnimeSols just announced that they're going to hold a crazy promotion this Black Friday and to hold off on pledging until Friday.

Interesting, I wonder what kind of crazy promotion it will be.

All pledges will count double for Black Friday, it seems. http://www.fandompost.com/2013/11/26/anime-sols-launches-black-friday-double-up-promotion/

Edit: So here are the new Dear Brother and Mami placeholders, respectively. http://animesols.com/videos/173 http://animesols.com/videos/173 Thanks to ANN for the first link.

BTW, if you like Samurai Flamenco, you might wanna check out Hurricane Polymar at Anime Sols.

Edit: Oh, and Black Jack only has a few days left to be funded, while everything else has at least a month.

Edit 2: Ok, so the Black Friday thing is on, now. Plus, don't forget about the Tezuka specials. Two weeks left on those.

Edit 3: So Mami and Black Jack are currently over $7,000, Dear Brother over $4,500, Polymar at $4,600, and Bagi/Tezuka at $4,280.

At this rate it'll reach it's goal by dinner time I won't complain.
Now we must all help out Black Jack, Oniisama e, 24 Tezuka Hour Specials, and Hurricane Polymar. Those $5 and $10 pledges will also help greatly since the double up promotion applies to everything! Let's make all the series on here succeed!
Everybody who wants a boxset or other goodies, go to Animesols.com and pledge. Pledge and spread the word like you have never done before!
http://animesols.com/

For those who pledged before the promotion, you can undo the pledge and re-pledge again so it can count towards the double up
This promotion lasts through Dec 1.

Black Jack's finally past the halfway point.

Edit: $4,000 in pledges left for Black Jack, $1,500 for Dear Brother, and about $3,000 for Mami. Remember that Black Jack is the one on borrowed time. Two more days left for Black Friday weekend deals.

Edit 2: Direct link for all the series taking pledges. http://animesols.com/video_sets?search[meta_sort]=goal_date.asc Thanks, @WTK.

Dear Brother is almost there, and it only JUST launched (still has 70 days left!). Hopefully a lot more people will keep turning out!

Dear Brother has reached it's goal and is now on 70 days overtime.

Meanwhile, Black Jack has 3 days left and needs either 8 super novas, 15 novas, 25 super pulsars, 38 pulsars, 58 super cores, 93 cores, 371 super boosters, or 742 boosters. Come pledgers! Help Black Jack out! The Black Friday double up promotion goes through Dec 1. We need Black Jack to reach it's goal by then.

Don't forget the 24 Hour Tezuka specials it needs only $9,030 to reach it's goal so we need either 24 novas, 33 super pulsars, 51 pulsars, 76 pulsars, or 151 cores. The sooner those goals are met during this promotion, the sooner the DVD releases will be in everybody's hands.
