From what I understand based on an ANNCast interview around 8/27, the 26 episode plan is an older one that the 3-part OVA plan is developed from, and they do not plan to do a 2-cour version in the future. However, additional OVAs might be possible.

Anyway, I made my pledge today, and discovered that by the time I'd got home to do it, they had in fact met goal. Yay!


The producer said (I think on his AmA) that they did actually have an offer to go ahead and make the full series, but I think since the Kickstarter was successful they won't go that route.


It sounded to me like the 26-episode offer was one that wasn't currently a consideration for reasons of creative freedom. (This question and answer is at the 49:30 mark in the ENG + JPN version of the podcast)

Now as is usual when I pledge Kickstarter I'm going to be obsessed with revisiting the page to see how far over goal they go, and whether or not they reach stretch goals.

From all the articles I've read so far it seems a TV anime would probably the last stop on a list of things to be done: OAVs, 3 feature films, & then(maybe) a 26 episode show.

Probably depends on demand in Japan. If the show is a success in Japan a TV anime would be a no-brainer with the rights and the creative shots being called by the makers of the anime and not some committee.

Woo! Now to wait until Dec 2015 for my BD to come...


I believe the December 2015 date was in case the $5.1m stretch goal was reached, and the team needed time to create the full feature-length film. It's very possible the BD will ship sometime before then.

From Creative Intelligence Arts:


Dec. 2015 was anticipating two 24 min OVAs so if we do just the one then it may hit sooner.

They reached the goal almost 4 hours ago and they're almost $40,000 above their goal now If that rate keeps up for the next 60 or so hours, then that's $600,000 extra, and a new OVA along with it.

That rate probably won't stay of course, but you never know. A new endorsement, news coverage... This is fun lol. I've never done a Kickstarter before so this is all new to me.

Kicktraq shows it trending towards $681k, but like you said, that will most likely start dropping off tonight.

Ok so I changed around my pledge a bit. I dropped my tier down to the $60 tier, but I pledged $290. The extra $230 is going to be split between the figure and the t-shirt. The only thing I won't be getting in any form that I wanted was the poster. I still get digital versions of the art book and soundtrack, so it all works out.

And come on the figure is a 1/8 scale Good Smile figure. I am expecting good things from it.

I'm a regular kickstarter backer and I'm amazed that this made it. You guys should really all pat yourself on the back because its very rare for kickstarters to raise over 100k within a day after that initial rush towards a campaign at the beginning. I'm so excited for this now, can't wait.

With 2 days to go, they've rolled in two new endorsements.

One from Keiji Inafune, who did a lot of work for Mega Man, and is behind the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter project. Hopefully this brings in a lot of donations, since he's got a pre-established fanbase on KS.

Another from Yoko Taro, creator of Drakengard. Never played it lol
