Steambot's co-founders Jöel Dos Reis Viegas and Sébastien Larroudé are planning to make an anime project known as 'Urbance'. There are plans to make it into some sort of full series if this is achieved:


Steambot is hoping to raise CAD$189,000 by November 6 to fund an eight-minute pilot episode. The company then plans to present the pilot to broadcasters, investors, and festivals to fund a full series. Any donations raised beyond the US$189,000 goal will be used to fund the first episode. The campaign page is also streaming a trailer for the project.


Regarding the project, here's a premise:

I already pledged to this project and shared it online. It's an interesting project that has some uniqueness to it. Spread it around to people who enjoy great animation.

I'm normally not one for the "you're a bad person for having traditional morals" type of story, but I will say I am very interested in this project.

Not having sex also kills?

I backed this project as well. I love the beautiful animation and the ideas behind this possible plot.

Some ultra annoying girls have been gushing about this project on my Facebook feed for weeks now, I'd rather steer clear of it. I'll just stick with real anime.

I don't like the rewards. They make such a big deal over a signed print while a famous, old timey animator who did the character designs for Tiger Mask and Cyborg 009, is giving hand drawn, colored sketches for $400 on his Kickstarter project.

I supported Keiichiro Kimira's project, Go! Samurai, instead.

Holy crap! That's awesome!

This is what we need. More studios from other countries outside of Japan to make more anime-like titles. Now I know the character designs are more realistic, but this obviously has a lot of influence from Japan animation so I suspect the story, characters, etc. will be very reminiscent of anime.

Can't wait to see the 8 minute first episode.

Urbance is such a weird name considering the premise.
