Well, I just found this news on ANN but there's this anime called "Devil's Legacy" that may debut if it achieves enough support. Here's why apparently:


Devil's Legacy is unique. Imagine a cross between Berserk and Ghost In The Shell, but directed by Go Nagai, with a bit of Death Note added in for good measure. It's a story worthy of the Dante's Divine Comedy.

What other anime has a spectacularly unique world where Purgatory has been cut off from Heaven and Hell. Billions of souls from through out the ages are now stuck in Purgatory with no way out. Cultures and technologies of different ages overlapped and a varied and incredible universe was created. Imagine if in the Middle Ages there were computers and coaches had been pulled by robot horses!

Looks interesting. The horse seems to have a single wing from afar

This sounds awesome! Also is this a western group running the kickstarter or a japanese group?

EDIT: Nevermind, they're Japanese:

The team behind Devil's Legazy has pedigree! They're former TOEI Animation staff who have worked on One Piece, Dragonball, Gaiking (modern series), Precure, St Seya, Dr. Slump and Arale, Digimon Saga, Magical Do-Re-Mi, Yu-gi-oh and dozen of others.


I wish westerners would try to make anime-like stuff more often..... =/ I'd support them on KS at least.

Well, they aren't being lenient with their praise, that's for damn sure. This better be fucking awesome, that is some serious hype right there.
That being said: This doesn't look too bad. The trailer promises a lot and the setting does have potential. I am not really in the spot to donate a lot to this right now, but I might do a little later, will keep an eye on this, thanks for sharing.

Hello.

I am TheEvangelist (ok maybe not my real name...) and I am one of the main points of contact about the project. Campaign manager would be my official title. If you have questions or anything, feel free to reach out to me.

Better be f---ing awesome? I will let the studio head know that he better make it f---ing awesome. I'll even add in an "or else", sounds better that way

Thanks
Evangelist

Of course as I'm typing that, he shows up...stop taking my job

I checked it out. Ok, as someone who backed Kick-Heart, Little Witch Academia, AND Under the Dog, I will be the first person to say that this looks absolutely horrible.

I'd say it was an interesting comment but there is no detail or reason for the comment. Can you elaborate on what you have an issue with?

The page is about to change a bit and the video will be updated as things move forward.

I can name a few things:
-spelling errors
-terrible animation (a PV is supposed to highlight the best parts, not the worst)
-the quotes that make zero sense like "In Devil's Legacy Nothing is What it Seems And What it Seems is Nothing" What does that even mean? That Devil's Legacy is about nothing?
-amateur Deviantartish looking artwork, I can work on something for 24 hours, but if it is shoddy work, then it is shoddy work. No reason to sugarcoat it.
-no credits listed
That's just a few.
I have supported a couple kickstarter campaigns in the past: LWA2 and SC

I meant to meant earlier but some things were going on that had to be resolved. Either way, the campaign has ended due to a death in the family. You can read the update here.
