Crowdfunding project for the sixth episode is also launched
The official website for the Henkei Shojo (Transforming Girls) web short anime series today posted its fifth episode featuring Arisa, voiced by 28-year-old ex-idol group Morning Musume member Sayumi Michishige. The previous four episodes have been viewed over 8.8 million times worldwide in total.

And the "very important announcement" teased in the trailer is confirmed as a crowdfunding
project for the sixth episode now being held at MotionGallery. The project's target is to raise at
least 4,000,000 yen (about 35,264 US dollars) to produce the new episode, and it is scheduled
to be finished by December 22, 2017, 60 days from today.
The length of the episode will be decided by the amount of the donated money, from 20-30 seconds
(4-5 million yen) to 60-70 seconds (6.01-7 million yen). Investors will be able to join the production
process as producer who has the privilege to receive various production reports and materials, to
provide their opinions on character designs and voice cast, and to attend the voice recording session
and premiere screening. If the project reaches its goal, the sixth episode will be posted on the web
in early March of 2018. Learn more about the project with the two PR videos below.
