Really great to see this blow right past the stretch goal. It's over 194K now with a bit more than a day left. Always nice to see success.

For those who were holding back because you would only pledge for BD and not DVD, now's your chance.

Hoping the recent trend of this gets Skip Beat another season. I'd personally welcome it (been reading the manga for about a 2 years now).

So, according to this, Skip Beat sold an average of 674 copies per volume in Japan. If that's true, that means this campaign outsold Japan at least in number of copies. Though monetarily, Japan still leads (roughly $300,000 at the current exchange rate) since they sell individual volumes not the box sets.

Oopsie! BTW, for future reference, you can just click "Edit" in the upper right corner of posts when you need to correct something like that. It's preferable to double-posting.

It's great to see see this surpass the original Kickstarter and the stretch goal, and get so close to (I wonder if it will surpass) what the original goal was when it was on indiegogo (if I'm recalling correctly.)

I would have edited, but unfortunately by the time I realized I no longer had the ability to edit my post. I don't use the forums to often anymore, but I don't remember the edit button going away after a while back then. Otherwise I'd update the opening post with a few updates.

Edit - Wait! Nvm... I saw the edit link being combined with the permalink. I have no idea why I felt like it was one link once the delete permalink disappears.

TBH, you are not the first person I've seen say they mistook "Edit" as being part of "Permalink.'


On topic: less than $2,000 before they hit the original goal of 210K, that they trimmed down from when they started the Kickstarter, with the new cost-cutting measures, to reduce risk of not reaching goal. I think it was super-smart to do it that way, but now it's super-exciting to see the "safe" goal get surpassed so solidly. People want their blu-rays! (Also people love to hop on last minute.)

Over $210,000. It's really nice to see that broken since it was said it couldn't be done after the Indiegogo campaign failed. And yes, wow, so many people jumping in at the last minute.
