UPDATE #4

Quick Update - Basic + Chipboard Case Option Added

Several people have asked for the ability to get a Basic set with the chipboard case, so we've added a $45 tier that includes this option.

So now you can get:
  • Basic set only (just the Amaray)
  • Basic + chipboard box
  • Basic + Artbook
  • Premium (all 3)

UPDATE #8

Our New Year's Resolution is 4K!

Dear Backers,

The new year is a time for reviewing past decisions and resolving to do better. And based on your input and generous support of the project, we now have the resources to attempt something we've wanted to do for a long time.

We want Macross II to be our first release in UHD 4K!

To support this, we have added two stretch goals to the project:

First, at $250K, we are committing to authoring Macross II in 4K.

Backers who want to receive a Blu-ray / UHD combo (2 discs instead of 1) will be able to add-on UHD for $10 post-campaign. In addition, the 4K materials will also be used to author the Blu-ray release.

Second, at $351K, we will celebrate Macross II being our biggest Kickstarter ever by upgrading all backers to a Blu-ray / UHD combo release at no additional cost!

Wait... what's that, you say? We've already passed $250K?

Well, that first stretch goal wasn't much of a stretch after all. D'Oh!

Finally, in addition to all of this, we are still actively looking at ways to add some extra goodies to the physical package - goodies that every backer will get. Your suggestions in the previous update thread have been very helpful, so keep them coming!

Many thanks to everyone at BIG WEST and Creative Sphere, without whose hard work this wouldn't be possible.

Happy New Year from Robert and Natsumi!

PS: The reason the UHD add-on has to be post-campaign is that once we create an add-on, we can't remove it, and if we hit the second stretch goal, it becomes redundant.

^ Macross II in 4K

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...cxMDU5OQ%3D%3D

This is going to be a proper 4K release, not an upscale. We will be doing a HDR color grade, but the exact details on that and other steps in the chain are contingent on what we uncover along the way. Same goes for audio; right now all we know for sure is that we have the final 2.0 mixed tracks, but the Combat Archaeology Team is still hopeful they can uncover the original separated tracks.

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...n-alus-edition

$352,592 pledged of $75,000 goal
3,285 backers
46 hours to go


https://www.kickstarter.com/projects.../posts/4005147

UPDATE #15

UHD for U!

Macross II is now our most successful kickstarter, and that means we get to reuse this image yet again.

Assuming we aren't being trolled by Macross-hating Marduk infiltrators who will now cancel their pledges, all backers will now receive UHD/BD combo sets at no extra charge.

However, we do have several days to go, and this does raise the issue of the next stretch goal.

If we hit $401K (because if the campaign gets this large, we can probably retire), we'll add something to the project. We're not sure what yet, it may be physical or digital, but post-campaign we'll narrow it down to several options and you will get to vote on which gets done.

The suggestions in previous updates for add-ons have been very helpful in figuring out what we might do; we've already been pricing stuff out and figuring out the logistics. So keep those suggestions coming!


Best
Robert & Natsumi

PS: Huge thanks to Creative Sphere once again for all their help in putting this project together!

UPDATE #17

Impressive... Most Impressive...

First things first.

Thank you very much for your support for the project. It means we're going to get to do a lot of cool things.

To recap:
  • Over $404K raised from almost 4000 backers, our biggest Kickstarter campaign ever!
  • New Mikimoto Art!
  • Large Artbook in hardcover!
  • UHD/BD combo for everyone - and we got the dubbed version as well!
  • An extra bonus feature that we'll be able to discuss soon!
  • And Natsumi and Robert get to retire (if they want to!)
Coming Soon to a website near you...

In a few weeks, after the dust settles, we'll make upgrades and extra copies available on the AnimEigo website, as well as allow for late signups (same deal as the Kickstarter, as always).

As we finalize the character goods (we've been working on your suggestions during the campaign!) they'll also become available.

And of course, we're already hard at work on the preproduction; expect regular updates over the course of the year.

Best,

Robert and Natsumi

Shout! Studios and Toei Animation Announce Film Distribution Deal for the New Digimon Anime Movie Digimon Adevnture 02 The Beginning

Los Angeles (January 31, 2024) – Shout! Studios, a multi-platform media company, and Toei Animation Inc., the legendary anime studio, announced a new home entertainment distribution deal to bring DIGIMON ADVENTURE 02 THE BEGINNING, the highly anticipated 2023 feature film based on the original TV sequel series from the globally popular Digimon anime franchise, which marks its 25th anniversary this year.. The announcement was made today by Melissa Boag, Shout! Studios' Executive Vice President, and Masayuki Endo, President and CEO of Toei Animation Inc.

This multi-year partnership provides Shout! Studios with North American home entertainment distribution rights to DIGIMON ADVENTURE 02 THE BEGINNING for cross-platform releases in the U.S. and Canada, including all packaged media and electronic sell-through digital rights. Shout! Studios plans a strategic rollout of this new movie across multiple entertainment platforms and home entertainment shelves in 2024. As excitement builds for the release, Shout! Studios and Toei Animation will announce additional news and activities for fans in the coming months.

“We are delighted by this new opportunity with Toei Animation and excited by this contemporary story of the DigiDestined from Digimon Adventure 02,” said Melissa Boag, Shout! Studios EVP, Kids & Family Entertainment. “Over the years, we enjoyed tremendous success with Digimon Adventure tri. film series and Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna. We look forward to presenting Digimon Adventure 02 The Beginning to anime fans and families through home entertainment very soon.”

“Digimon Adventure 02 The Beginning was a hit with franchise fans around the world and we're thrilled to bring it to homes across North America through this partnership with Shout! Studios,” said Masayuki Endo, President and CEO of Toei Animation, Inc. “Today's news is one of many exciting things planned during 2024 as part of Toei Animation's year-long celebration of the 25th anniversary of Digimon.”

Produced by Toei Animation, DIGIMON ADVENTURE 02 THE BEGINNING delighted movie audiences and loyal fans across Japan and around the world in 2023, including its two-day U.S. theatrical relase on November 8 and 9 by Toei Animation and Fathom Events. Based on the TV sequel series Digimon Adventure 02 and its new cast of children that aired in 2000, this brand-new movie adventure is a contemporary continuation of the series but with the DigiDestined children now 20-year-old young adults. Director Tomohisa Taguchi and scriptwriter Akatsuki Yamatoya with production by Toei Animation – the same team behind the most recent film Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna – reunite to weave this new story. Just as the last scene of the Digimon Adventure 02 depicted a future where all people and Digimon live together, the movie DIGIMON ADVENTURE 02 THE BEGINNING is for all the children and adults who have walked with Digimon.

The home entertainment release of this highly sought-after anime movie features an English dub produced by Toei Animation specifically for the U.S. theatrical run. Soon, North American fans can once again, or for the very first time, enjoy the film's stellar English voice cast. Brian Donovan, who voiced the character Daisuke Motomiya in the TV series, returns to the role for this new feature film, along with an exciting team of voice talent and Digimon luminaries, including Jeannie Tirado (My Hero Academia), Bryce Papenbrook (Digimon Adventure), Tara Sands (Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna), Johnny Yong Bosch (Digimon Adventure tri.), Derek Stephen Prince (Digimon Adventure 02), among others.

UPDATE #18

Upgrades? Extra Sets? We've got you covered.

Dear Backers,

As promised, we've activated a page on our website for purchasing upgrades and extra sets (as well as permitting late signups for people who didn't manage to initially back the kickstarter).

The url is https://animeigo.com/macross2

In addition, we've completed the initial data import from Kickstarter and will be sending out status emails over the next 3-4 days (we are starting slow in case there are some unexpected issues). Some things to be aware of:
  • The data we have is several days old, so if you recently completed the Kickstarter survey, we may not have gotten the data yet. Don't worry, that'll happen next time we do a download and we'll automatically send you another status email.
  • If you backed at the Wendy Ryder Fan Club level, you don't need to enter a survey because we don't need your address information.
  • There's no need to worry about updating your address at this point, since we do address verification just before we ship.
  • DO email us if your order doesn't seem to be correct, or if you want to change your email address or "Name on Disc" (pseudonyms are fine).
  • If you pledged bonus support and want to order extra stuff, just do so using the website. When we process your order, we'll see you have a credit balance and we'll use it up and apply a matching refund to the order.
  • We may be a bit slow processing these orders at first as we troubleshoot the order importing process; there's always a few things that change between each Kickstarter we do.
Best, Robert & Natsumi

Adam Devine, J.K. Simmons Join Voice Cast of ‘Hypergalactic’ Animated Feature from ‘Sonic’ Designer Naoto Oshima

Adam Devine, J.K. Simmons, Sam Richardson and Elsie Fisher will lend their voices to “Hypergalactic,” the CG animated family feature co-created by Naoto Oshima, best known for designing the original “Sonic the Hedgehog” for Sega, and Joseph Chou (“Blade Runner 2022: Black Out,” “Ghost in the Shell”).

The English-language film, directed by David N. Weiss (“Shrek 2,” “The Smurfs”) and now in post-production, marks the most ambition CG feature to date from Toei Animation. The Japanese studio was behind recent anime smash hits “The First Slam Dunk,” which grossed $279 million, and “One Piece Film: Red,” which has so far earned $246.6 million.

Charades are set to launch worldwide sales on “Hypergalatic” at Berlin’s European Film Market, alongside Iwashina Corporation founder Kevin Iwashina, who is also an advisor to Toei.

“Hypergalactic” follows an adventurous teenage girl (Fisher) and her baby brother in the not-so-distant future, after they liberate the forgotten protector of Earth, Ohkan (Devine), in the hopes that he can help reunite them with their missing parents. Together, the unlikely trio sets off on a surprise-filled journey, discovering the deeper meaning of family along the way.

The main producer of “Hypergalactic” is Yoshi Ikezawa from Toei Animation and the executive producers are Kozo Morishita, Katsuhiro Takagi and Tim Kwok.

“With ‘Hypergalactic,‘ the hugely talented game designer Oshima has created a multicultural adventure tale of epic scale – combining memorable global characters with a Japanese Anime aesthetic and a Western approach to storytelling,” said Ikezawa. “We look forward to delivering our brand of quality animation to broader global audiences beyond our existing loyal and committed fan base.”
