Patema Inverted Kickstarter Reaches First Stretch Goal


It has been exactly a week since Anime Limited launch their Kickstarter campaign for Patema Inverted, and since then the campaign has not only reached it’s target of £16,000 but it has also reached it’s first stretch goal of £25,000.

Of course compared to some other Kickstarter Projects, such as Ankama’s Kickstarter for Wakfu,  £25,000 isn’t that much – but considering this is just for the UK Anime market and with three weeks still to go this is quite an achievement.

So what exactly does the £25,000 stretch goal unlock? Well it will allow Anime Limited to produce a unique, one-of-a-kind, Kickstarter-only, illustration for Patema Inverted’s Definitive Edition box-art. Basically it will feature an entirely original and unique artwork that differs to the previously revealed artwork, thus making it a kickstarter exclusive. Read more of this post

Anime Limited to Offer Soundtrack as Possible Mai Mai Miracle Stretch Goal


Anime Limited, also known as All The Anime, have recently announced that if their next ‘imaginary’ stretch goal of $105,000 is achieved by the end of the Mai Mai Miracle Kickstarter (which currently ends in 5 days) then the movies soundtrack may possibly be included with all $45 (or higher) backer tiers.

We are still knee deep in complex and slow moving negotiations with the rights holders and we know that with enough funding, we’ll be able to offer the soundtrack as an addition to all the tiers from $45 upwards. For backers on the lower tiers, we can offer the soundtrack at a discounted rate.

So what amount will we need to be able to get the OST for everyone? You may recall in previous posts that we mentioned hitting a $95,000 target. That figure was based on initial guesstimations in the early stages of approaching negotiations. The way things are looking in the negotiations (and the fees we’re looking at stumping upfront) we would now estimate a target of $105,000.

Basically if the Mai Mai Miracle kickstarter, which currently stands at over $88,000, achieves over $105,000 by the end of the campaign then all $45 tiers (and higher) may receive a copy of the soundtrack. For those who purchased lower tiers (such as the basic amaray version) then they can pledge additional funds to secure a copy of the soundtrack. Read more of this post

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.
