My apologies if there is already a thread on this topic (I couldn't find one).

Some of you may know there is a Kickstarter campaign to dub and Blu-ray the entire Aria franchise - including the picture dramas! If you haven't checked out the campaign yet please do so ... we'd love to have some new backers:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/160939828/lets-dub-aria-the-animation/description

There's lots of cool Kickstarter-only exclusives and an add-on art guidebook that is going to be epic!

Note to any admin who may see this: it doesn't appear that I can edit the title of this thread. If an admin sees this message, could you edit the title to Help Dub and Put on Blu-ray all of the Aria franchise! please? Thank you.

The Blu Ray part is a bit key. =)

It helps there is an ad for this on the CR main as well.

Any thoughts about how things are going? I like how active the community has been with this, and how accessible the Nozomi folks are to ask questions and such.

Really gives you insight to how all this functions. Only my third kickstarter and there is a good bit of entertainment value to just the project there.

Currently funded through season 2, with Season 3, and BOTH OVA's as an option to add on if we meet the goals.

I'm really happy with the way things are going. At the very frist of the campaign I was a bit dubious about the prospect of getting the entire Aria franchise dubbed and HDed in one go. I thought it might take two campaigns to do. However, it really looks like just one will do it. Nozomi and Ann from Pied Piper have been awesome at being responsive.

I'm a backer, and hoping we can reach the Season 3 stretch goal. I'm not a Dub person, but I'm looking forward to the HD version of it.

I don't think there will be any issues hitting the stretch goals by end. Remember from now on it is all "Add Ons".

More they do at once the cheaper it is really, glad they're running with this in response to great reception.

Not only a bit cheaper, but you'll have the VA consistency throughout the entire franchise, which is always a preferred situation. 10 days and $60k to go for the whole package. ; )

I'm a backer as well. Since money is quite tight for me that I am only doing the Prima tier that gets me the exclusive artbox, the first season, and a bunch of other goodies, and I'll only up the pledge to get the guidebook, and then pick up the rest of the series once it goes on sale in a year or two. Pretty much, the whole thing being dubbed is just about a done deal at $310k with $50k left to go with 10 days left. It's an amazing show and I'm certainly glad that it's getting a dub considering that the show just doesn't have massive appeal or marketability much like the type of shows Right Stuf tends to license. I'm hoping that after this that they can pick up Amanchu as well.

Six days to go and just over $25,000 needed - very doable!

And the dub is now fully funded with five more days left to spare. Not much longer until the last stretch goal of $370k is reached.

The campaign is now over, and the final totals are in. $595,676 was raised by 2648 backers. The final stretch goal was set at $370k, so that means Right Stuf and Nozomi will have over $225k extra to work with. Quite a successful campaign that was as there were question marks in just getting the first season dubbed, but now everything is.
