MECHA-UDE: Mechanical Arms, a new anime project fronted by Japanese anime creator Sae Okamoto, has recently appeared on Kickstarter; with it the ambition of creating a single OVA Styled episode with the possibility of a series being produced depending on the success of this animation. Set in a fictional futuristic modern day world MECHA-UDE will follow the activities of an ordinary high-schooler who, after interacting with a mechanical arm, finds himself at the centre of attention for those interested in the arm.
It sounds like quite an interesting anime; so hopefully this project will get green-lit for a full series. You can read more about it in the synopsis below.
Synopsis:Hero was a high schooler living an ordinary life. One day, he meets a very strong and intelligent mechanical arm named “Mecha-ude”.After a strange turn of events, the “Mecha-ude” started living inside Hero’s hoodie and the two’s life full of trouble begins.
As the boy and his Mecha-ude fights together and strengthen their bonds, the two also meets new friends who also fights along with each of their own unique Mecha-due partners. Out of those, one of the heroine has two Mecha-ude which appears out of her skirt.
An active girl with a totally opposite characteristics from hero himself, he gradually becomes attracted to her. But the two are confronted with other Mecha-ude users who are in search of the secret of Mecha-ude relentlessly.
It sounds like an interesting concept; but in order for the concept to become reality Sae, her small team and STUDIO TRIF, are looking to secure $25,000 funds so that this singular OVA styled episode can be produced. At the time of writing more than $3,000 has been raised, with the campaign itself ending on the 5th November 2016. As with all Kickstarter projects those who help fund it will receive rewards and those hoping to receive this OVA episode on a DVD or Blu-ray disc will have to fork out around $65 – which is slightly pricey considering the rewards you will receive.
In any event those wishing to support the project can do so by visiting the official Kickstarter Campaign page; alternatively you can see a sample of the anime in the promotional video below.
