Mai Mai Miracle Kickstarter Reaches First Stretch Goal, Second Stretch Goal Added


It’s seems that All The Anime’s debut Kickstarter Campaign is a “huge” success, as not only did the Mai Mai Miracle Kickstarter reach its $30,000 target within 24 hours but their English Dub stretch Goal of $60,000 has also now been reached. This means that everyone who backed the project for a copy of the film will receive it in both English and Japanese format, which is of course great news for anime fans.

To continue the trend of offering ‘additional bonuses’ a second stretch goal has been added, this time allowing the backers/supporters to choose what they want to be included next. The first option is an Audio Commentary from Jonathan Clements, the author of Anime: A History, and someone who has made many appearances on the Manga UK Podcast. The second option is for a Replica of the theatrical pamphlet that was handed out in cinemas during it’s initial cinematic run. This pamphlet will be reproduced and translated into English.

Both options offer a unique addition to the overall project and while the Audio Commentary would be nice I am more inclined to go with the physical pamphlet. Either way you can make your choice over on the backer-only section of the Kickstarter page, but only one of these options will also be used and that will only happen if the campaign reaches it’s new stretch goal of $75,000, which is currently $14,000 away.

As it stands everyone who has backed the project will receive their rewards, and any additional funding now will be used to unlock additional items and bonuses for the release.
