That's awesome news. I'm going to guess that we'll probably figure out who's going to play Lory later today.

Sorry if I come off rude but, why do they need a Kickstarter? I understand they're doing it to bring Skip Beat to America, but they can't do it themselves?

Pied Piper is new to the business, so they don't have deep pockets like Funimation...etc. But even if they did, they would likely do the same, as licensing and dubbing a shoujo anime series is considered risky in the US, as they tend to sell alot less compared to shonen series. In order to release the series, TV Tokyo requires any licensor to produce a dub for the series. That is why Skip Beat has yet to see a physical release in the US.

'Cause shoujo sells horribly in the US and the west and the Japanese company has required a dub for it to be licensed. The company releasing this would have a big chance of major losses if they did not confirm demand with a kickstarter.

I like the pick for Lory. I'm interested on how he's gonna spin it.

@TheSurrenderable - As others have said Shoujo are said to have a harder time selling in the US. Tokyo TV doesn't believe that the west wants it. So this Kickstarter is created to raise the funds and prove them that it will sell. A success on this Kickstarter will be a win for all anime fans. Not just those who are fans of Skip Beat!
