5 Kickstarter animes (where ideas see reality… Or not)
If you have an innovative idea, present this idea to the world. One of the platforms for this is Kickstarter, where you present your idea with the intention of receiving financial support from anyone. There are similar platforms such as Padrin, Patreon, APOIA.se and many others. The list shows the anime that have worked and the anime that can work. Come with me and get your pocket ready, or sell your house…
This project convinced me, I believe it will work. He's already got the necessary financial support, he's already in production. It is an anime with many references to Cyberpunk, featuring cyborg characters amid chaotic adventures. We can expect the quality at least reasonable, Japanese are behind the anime after all. Check out the teaser.
4. Under the Dog
That one made me impressed in the trailer. But the anime is median, already has 2 specials/roe, and with design for a live-action. And who says Hideo Kojima isn't in all of them? He praised this anime, even he expects something good in it. Look at the responsibility. Check out the trailer.
3. Halloween Pajama
Director Yasuhiro Irie (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood) proposed the Kickstarter campaign to animate his manga, a 20-minute special. But unfortunately the campaign did not reach the proposed goal, which was $170,000, but closed with $50,000. But it seems that even with this money will be made an animation, it's all or nothing. Check out the teaser.
2. Nekoto (OVA)
As soon as he left Kickstarter the animation project, the news spread and in the blink of an eye the goal was long. Goal of $100,000, but is already in $900,000… Bunch of wankers, I ain't. That is, the OVA is already on its way. After all this money makes a series of 12 episodes, please, I'm in the drought here! Check out the teaser.
1. Little Witch Academy 2
The second long of the franchise went to Kickstarter and it worked very well, in 2015 it was animated by Studio Trigger thanks to funding. It's one of my favorite anime, the story is very good, it looks really very alive. That year (2017) won Nava animation of 25 episodes, was broadcast in Japan and internationally by Netflix. Check out the trailer.
You pay for a crazy idea, but the result may be good… Or not
The legal Kickstarter or other similar platforms is, helping with the money that can entitles you to exclusive things. It can be autograph, co-authorship, name in credits, exclusive products, collectible items and many other things. That's an incentive, after all, you're betting on an idea that can go wrong, it's somewhat risky. I think I'm launching a project at Kickstarter, Hikikomori Project!
