Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

AnimEigo's next Kickstarter project:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects.../posts/3119658
preview: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...token=f7d38a9f

Metal Skin Panic: MADOX-01 Unobtanium Edition
The definitive Blu-ray release of the Metal Skin Panic: MADOX-01 anime OVA, finally available in HD!


Disc Contents

We're packing the disc with as much content as we can gather, and the contents will almost certainly expand as we go through production. However, at a minimum, you'll get:
  • A new HD transfer of MADOX-01, created especially for this edition.
  • The original SD MADOX featurette.
  • English subtitles, both our regular colored subtitles, colored SDH subtitles, and SDH captions.
  • Our English dub, with SDH captions.
  • Color and Line art galleries.
  • All the bonus features included on the 2003 DVD release, including a commentary track, two interviews (one of which is mostly Robert embarrassing himself), the original Japanese documentary, and an Easter Egg IMDB describes as a "disturbing behind the scenes look at AnimEigo."
  • List of all Kickstarter backers on the disc.
  • 6-panel printed insert containing a poster on one side and a list of backers on the other.
  • Easter Eggs and other hidden content. Or maybe not. It'll be up to you to find out.
About the New Transfer

The new transfer of MADOX was performed under the supervision of Director Aramaki at Tokyo Genzoushou from the original print of the film, and clocks in at almost 700GB of uncompressed 2K video. If the project reaches the second stretch goal, we will also perform a digital restoration pass on the film, doing additional color grading, dust and scratch removal, image stabilization, camera flicker reduction and splice removal. Film grain reduction will not be performed, as some of you have strong opinions about that... : )

If restoration is performed, both the original transfer and the digital restoration will be included on the disc. All additional work will be supervised by Director Amaraki.


Reward Levels

The @^#^@ Manual (Digital Production Materials) - $5

Online access to all the art and other production documentation, plus you will be listed on the disc and Amaray poster insert.

Basic - $30+ shipping

The basic set, a BD-25 Blu-ray + poster insert. Includes all the digital rewards.

Premium - $55 + shipping

The basic set plus the Production Artbook, together in a sturdy chipboard box.

Patron - $150 + shipping

Includes everything in Premium, plus you will be listed as a Patron when the disc loads in addition to your listing in the regular disc feature.

Prominent Patron - $250 + shipping - Limited Reward: 20 Available

Includes everything in Patron, plus you will be listed on the first page of the list of Patrons in a larger font.

Perfectionist Patron - $250 + shipping - Limited Reward: 5 Available

Includes everything in Patron, plus you will receive a set of the production check discs. Note that any bugs in the final discs will be your fault! : )


Add-ons

We have a tradition of producing limited-edition bonus "goodies" with our sets, available only to backers. They vary from set to set (we tend to do weird things backers suggest), but one thing we always do is a commemorative embroidered patch. For the Unobtainium Edition, we're going to do a "RTFM" patch. Is that "Read the @^#^@ Manual" or "Run the @^#^@ Mecha"? You decide.

If you have an idea for a fun item, let us know. If enough of your fellow backers want one, we'll make it!


Stretch Goals

We're keeping it simple on this project in an almost-certainly futile attempt to streamline things and actually deliver on-time for once. However, if we reach the second goal we'll come up with additional stretch goals that will seem like good ideas at the time, but inevitably become a logistical nightmare.

$75,000 - New Commentary featuring Director Aramaki.

$100,000 - Digital Restoration Pass. The restored version will be included on the disc in addition to the original transfer.

$125,000 - Madox Redux. It turns out there's a scene with an animation mistake that Director Aramaki would like to fix. If we hit this stretch goal, we'll hire him to do so, and make any other tweaks he deems necessary. These changes will be incorporated into the restored version, and we'll create a special feature that A/B compares the changes.


Shipping Fees

We have World-wide rights, excluding Japan. The ongoing drama that is Brexit has made it difficult for us to provide EU-friendly shipping, and we also have to charge VAT on UK sales now. Thus, the situation for International Backers is as follows:
  • Canada: We will ship from a Canadian warehouse; the shipping fee includes all customs duty, taxes and fees.
  • UK: We will ship from a UK warehouse; the shipping fee includes all customs duty, fees and VAT (and is a little higher for this reason).
  • Everywhere Else: We will ship from the USA; you will be responsible for any customs duty, taxes and fees. For EU customers, if it turns out we can arrange for EU fulfillment, we will do so, but we cannot guarantee this. Whether or not this is feasible will depend on the exact circumstances as well as the number of EU backers.
Q&A

Why is it the Unobtainium Edition?

First, because for the longest time, the print was unobtainable. Second, because when this limited-edition goes out of print, it will become unobtainable. And finally, to build a MADOX, you need unobtainable materials.

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

- 13 episodes of upscaled-to-HD fun
- Includes the English dubbed version from the prior Media Blasters release

- Did You Know...that Kashimashi ~Girl Meets Girl~ is a crossover with Mon Colle Knights?

We're 'still' working on tracking down proper dub masters. Hopefully an update soon, but no promises yet.

Update on Ninja Robots!

We're still working on tracking down the dub for it. Getting close we hope!

As before, if you know someone who might have recorded it please contact us and let us know!

- Theatrical trailer
- Discotek trailers
- AstroRes restoration comparison

- Our prior efforts had unearthed most of the English dubbed episodes...but not all of them.
- Some dubbed episodes didn't appear to be recoverable...
- But then, we managed to recover them.
- These are form old U-matic tapes - the video quality isn't quite up to snuff, but we will be able to recover the audio from them and use them as references to restore full, "uncut" dubbed episodes with optimal audio quality.

- Magical Girl Ore is coming to Blu-ray
- Japanese with English subtitles
- Other details are TBA

We have located the 35mm film elements for Project A-Ko, and will be using them for our Blu-ray release intead.
- For many years, the film master for Project A-Ko has been carefully stored in the same film lab vault where it had turned up missing.
- A clerical error was preventing searchers from locating it.
- A regular customer of the vault noticed this error, and realzied it was likely preventing Project A-Ko form being found. They tipped us off.
- That customer's name was Robert Woodhead.
- The revolutionary AstroRes upscale has been shelved in favor of a brand new HD transfer...!
- Previously announced bonus features for the first movie will still be included.

Project A-Ko will be getting some new cover artwork!

- Also included: a clean OP/ED sequence, and a prologue to episode 1
O-ring for Lady Oscar!

We're doing a slightly different sleeve for Lady Oscar. No corners to be dented. We're seeing if these will hold up better in shipping. When your set shows up, let us know what you think.

- Previously announced, the Blu-ray release of Lupin the 3rd Part III is coming and should have a release date soon

Some previews of the upcoming Pycal release!

The masters for this were in super rough shape.

@BradyHartel has been metaphorically killing himself to bring it up to snuff.
Lots of footage sources, and it was a very early digital production. They even recorded footage of Winamp.

- Kekkaishi returns to streaming video, courtesy of Discotek
- 52 episodes in English and in Japanese with subtitles
- We'll be bringing the official stream of this series to Crunchyroll. It may also appear on other portals later.

Funimation Co-Producing The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel Anime Project

JRPG fans, rejoice! The popular franchise The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is officially getting a television anime series in 2022 as part of a global collaboration between Funimation, USERJOY, SYOU and NADA!

The project was announced during the game developer Nihon Falcom’s 40th Anniversary livestream, and will feature a brand-new story set in the western part of Zemuria—where the Trails of Cold Steel games are set.

“We hope that everyone, not only the fans that are familiar with the game, but also those who are not, can enjoy the new story that has never been told before with unique characters from the ‘Kiseki’ series,” said USERJOY’s Any Liu. “Also, we are developing a new game based on the anime storyline, so please look forward to that as well!”

The Trails game series kicked off in 2004 (itself a subseries in The Legend of Heroes franchise) with The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky on PlayStation Portable. It has since spawned numerous sequels, including Trails of Cold Steel, in 2013.

Trails of Cold Steel tells a massive story of war set in the Erebonian Empire. They follow Rean Schwarzer, a student in the military academy of the empire, and how his class gets involved in the conflict between the noble and working class.

With such a huge world to explore, telling an original story set in this universe should be an exciting prospect for longtime fans of the franchise, as well as newcomers who want to dip their toes into Trails of Cold Steel!

The games have been praised for their emphasis on a character-driven narrative and worldbuilding, which sounds tailor-made for an anime adaptation. If you want a taste of how big the world of Zemuria is, just take a look at the official website for the games!

The latest installment in the Trails of Cold Steel series launched on PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe last year, and will make its way to PC and Nintendo Switch on April 9.

Threw together this rough comparison. (Mind you, the site compressed the hell out of these.) We never finished the A-ko AstroRes upscale but as you can tell, even next to the new scan it's quite impressive. Project A-ko remaster (WIP) - Frame Comparison - Screenshot Comparison made easy

This is a pretty decent review

Also, A-ko helped inspire Kill la Kill (mostly the personalities of the three central female characters), if you're at all familiar with that series.

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

$53,461 pledged of $27,620 goal


『The Girl from the Other Side』feature-length animation

A new animation project by WIT STUDIO , under the theme of "inhuman × girl fantasy".


https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...udio/totsukuni
https://www.totsukuni.com
https://twitter.com/totsukunishoujo


How to use the funds

In Japan, it usually takes a budget of over 10 million yen to create one episode (about 25 minutes long) of a TV animation.

Before we begin I would like to reassure all our supporters that the production committee has already secured a certain amount of production funds to create this long animation, and that there is no risk of this project being completely aborted.

That said, we intend to use the support fund from you for the activities shown below.

[(1) Fund to improve the production quality]

Usually a TV series requires the flow to become efficient, from drawing original drawings to movies, colorings and photo shooting, as the process involves many staff members. However, in "The Girl from the Other Side," we will put in more effort and time than we would in the usual workflow, devoting more effort into photoshoot processing to present the original work's fairy-tale-like worldview. (* For the actual image, see the comparison below.)

::: see Kickstarter page :::

Usually for animations created with WIT STUDIO, photoshoot processing section shown above is worked on jointly with external production companies, but this time we will organize an internal photoshoot team for the first time ahead of production. It is a special use of the fund to make this work stand out as an art animation.

[(2) Promotional expenses]

We will use the fund for the items below for the PR to notify people around the world of this product.

Cost of organizing advance screening with staff talk show
Cost of producing an online event with English translation
A translation fee to release production interviews to overseas media
* We will use the fund for other PR measures to communicate this work's appeal to as many people as possible.

* Details of the descriptions above are subject to change.

We intend to move things forward ensuring as much transparency as possible to our supporters on the use of the support fund. Your kind support to the long art animation project "The Girl from the Other Side" is greatly appreciated.

Get ready, Hetalia fans, the next chapter in this beloved series is almost here! We’re excited to announce that Funimation will be the exclusive home for Hetalia: World Stars as part of the Spring 2021 anime season!

Yes, Hetalia is back. In this, the year 2021.

The series, which follows a group of ridiculously good-looking countries-as-humans, is back with more awkward moments, more hilarity and plenty of the governmental parody you crave. It all starts April 1.

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

I keep seeing discussions in other forums that shows like Hetalia and Attack on Titan take a more favorable view of fascist countries and policies, to the point of encouraging those views. Does any fan of those shows want to comment on that?
