What about this series makes you go ick? I don't understand that reaction at all. Seriously curious.

I've already backed this. It will be so worth it if we can get this project done. The industry doesn't believe in anime like Skip Beat! thanks to so many so-called fans failing to ever buy the anime in the first place. Success here would prove that shoujo anime like this can be a success, that it does have fans willing to put their money where their mouth is, and it might even help encourage something to happen in Japan!

I'm about as far from the target audience as you can get but I loved Skip Beat! Kyoko is such a fantastic heroine.


I owe you an answer, but for now I'll just say I plan to reply when I can collect my thoughts better, and even if I don't like the show personally I'm happy to bump this thread and still plan to contribute a little to to project.

That sounds kinda ominous. Did I unintentionally offend you or something? While I'm interested to know what it is, I didn't mean to upset you. That is, if I have upset you. In my experience, when someone says they owe someone an answer and need to collect their thoughts, that usually means they're either offended and about to unload both barrels or at least they are very emotionally involved in the answer.

I asked out of genuine curiosity. If you're not comfortable answering, that's perfectly fine. My intention was merely to try to understand your reaction to the series which is vastly different from mine in a way I don't understand. Without an understanding of the basis for your reaction, whether life experience or some general philosophy I'm not familiar with, I'm simply not able to understand "ick" in relation to this series.

gabuhaha
's take on it, that perhaps someone would reject Skip Beat! based on thinking the series was a stereotypical shoujo romance, seemed reasonable to me. I can understand that reaction. I probably wouldn't have watched the series myself if not for the dub campaign getting my attention. (English dub preferring fan here! ).

However, it's clear you have a different perspective. I'm interested in knowing what it is if you're comfortable sharing.

OMG, thank you so much for starting this thread!! This is Ann from Pied Piper

Is there anything more we can do to increase visibility on Crunchyroll?

Crunchyroll is really supportive of this Kickstarter - they put it in their last newsletter and they've been tweeting for us.

But they have a lot of titles that need attention, and I've kind of maxed out the official support I can get from Crunchyroll.

So I'm wondering... is there anything more that we can do from the fan level?

Thank you again!! You make me believe that we can make this campaign into a huge WIN!!!

Not at all! I totally didn't mean to convey that kind of tone. More like I get lazy even when I want to share thoughts so by telling you I plan to get back to you, I create more of an obligation to myself to do so. So I'm interested to answer, and am not feeling at all adversarial about it, just it's going to take a little effort for me to articulate my thoughts about it so far.

The news article on Crunchy may help though it needs a Skip Beat thumbnail instead of Tanaka-kun.

Edit: Thumbnail is fixed

^ Daymond is also Gilthunder in the Seven Deadly Sins dub. I think he would be a good fit for the role.

Sounds great, 8 days to go! Spread the word as much as you can. They don't even have to like it! Supporting this title means supporting anime not just Skip Beat!

Hey everyone! Right now the money pool is at approximately $134,000! Only about $21,000 left to go for this Kickstarter to be successful! We need to reach $185,000 in order to get a Blu-ray release. Only six days left to go, and I'd sure love to see that Blu-ray goal hit!
