New anime Kickstarter

>Under the Dog
>The year is 2025 in the city of New Tokyo, five years following the devastation wrought by a specially enhanced groups of terrorists at the 2020 Summer Olympics. Out of the ashes of that desolation, the UN formed a special covert branch headquartered in Tokyo Bay solely purposed with searching out and eliminating the forces responsible for the attack along with anyone even bearing a remote resemblance to them.

>Everyone jumping on the crowdfunding bandwagon
>>
unfortunately, I just don't see them making the goal

Ando and Kinema simply don't have the kind of pull and fanfare Trigger had when they pulled Academia 2. Seriously how many people in the western anime fanbase even know Ando? At best they'll all be like "oh that guy that directed Sword of the Stranger", but even then it's not gonna be enough to get people to open their wallets.

Now /a/ you have no excuse for not support the industry.

Thanks OP! The Under the Dog anime looks great! I just donated 100 (one hundred) dollars!
>>
So I am guessing the team put this together with Kinema and then none of the production companies would give them the kind of funding deal they wanted so they decided to try kickstarter after seeing some other things succeed?

Well it is a Blu-ray and OST but yeah pretty pricey. I think they are thinking the market is pretty small and that if it will make it there it will be on the few peopl willing to put that much in or sink trying/
>>
>>111830134
It would be nice seeing a creative director/animator with a team of passionate individuals putting some effort into a project they actually liked and wanted to do for once. You can usually tell when the animators actually care about what they are drawing rather than just acting like animating machine slaves for hir.

There really should be a goal somewhere between the $20 and $100 there will be a big bumber of people willing to go higher than $20 for the BD but nowhere near $100 like $60-80 and you will get far more on that.

Let's give them a benefit of a doubt
>>
>>111830549
It's definitely on the upper edge of reasonable for a single episode, but this will include all of the frontloaded design work (I realise that this seems less valid when their 2 episode goal is exactly twice their 1 episode goal), and they also seem to be trying to aim for very high production values. I think a run of the mill show uses like half that amount per episode.

LWA the original episode has a budget of ~$390,000 and that didn't include any of the distribution costs or making of the rewards like DVDs/BDs/CDs. The new episode LWA 2 only had a much lower target because they had already paid one off fees like character designs that can be reused etc.

The LWA 2 kickstarter wasn't to fund LWA2, it was to make it 40 minutes long instead of 25. LWA also managed to establish a fanbase thanks to a first episode filled with cute animation and eye-catching characters. It's not comparable to any other anime KS.

>>111829393
>580K
As much as I want to see another Ando-directed action feature, they can't possibly hit that target.
>>
>>111831494
I was trying to make the point that the funding goal wasn't far too high for what they are aiming to make given that it seemed the poster had the misconception it was overly high based on the previous LWA2 target being far lower.
>>

>>111831523
This show has major western appeal though, if it manages to grab attention enough.

If they start throwing around terms like cyberpunk and pushing the fact he has worked on NGE and Ghost in the Shell. Tons of western anime fans fucking love cyberpunk shit. Way more than love little witches. Although I think a lot of interest in LWA was from /co/ types who just thought it was cute aswell as anime types.
>>
At least you get a HD digital download for $20-25.

I think it was Kick-Heart that only netted you a SD digital download for the same price.

Yuasa got 200.000 for Kick-Heart and he is hipster as fuck.

This here should get more. But still: I don't think it will be enough to hit the goal.

Yuasa has a small but passionate fanbase of people who idolize him and are not usually casuals about anime. Ando just about nobody in the west knows or cares about at all unfortuntately.

Was anyone else impressed by how organized the description was? So many times people make a kickstarter but aren't even half this transparent about costs/goals/etc.

I agree this will be hard to fund, though. Hopefully they have some advertising budget to push this in the right places. Did LWA2 make it on actual news places?

Serious answer: Depends entirely on the show. Something cheap could cost a few $1000 something high quality and well animated you could spend an unlimited amount on. LWA the first episode as an example got a budget pf $390,000 to make from scratch without any distribution etc. in that budget.

Bubblegum Crisis?

Kinema Citrus is good when they have budget (E7, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0) and a good staff behind (Yuyushiki, Barakamon), but sometimes they have shitty projects like Black Bullet (I think the problem in BB were the producers...). Overall, it's a good studio.

But that's how 99.99% of the western userbase react when they see those names. And this is why the kickstarter will probably fail. This is much different from the overhyped Trigger project.

I highly doubt Gunbuster's or Astro Boy's costs being that high. The others may be more or less within the ballpark, but Astro Boy was always known as the start of super-cheap corner-cutting animation to get something out every week. And Gunbuster was right after Gainax lost out big time on Honneamise bombing.

They don't want to because the discs are a niche good.

Wakfu seems considerably cheaper, though. I guess everyone should outsource to yurop.
>>
>>111836326
You're only noticing this now ?They already tried selling BDs cheaper but it never sold more.
>>
>>111835578
I'm not talking about the people involved, I'm talking about the anime itself. They showed me 1 minute of girls shooting and expect me to pay 100 dollars for it.
>>
>>111836228
The difference is that Western animation isn't even western animation. It's western scripting and storyboarding.
They ship the actual animation part to the koreans, since you'd actually have to pay a western animator enough so he doesn't starve.
>>
>>111836369

The discs are a niche good because no one wants to pay an arm and a leg for them. A lot of people who only pirate anime would at least buy their favorite series IF the price wasn't batshit insane.
>>
>>111836228
I assume he meant stuff like The Simpsons, as Avatar was done in part by Studio Pierrot and another one that I forget. On The Simpsons they probably pay their animators a reasonable amount of money, and they pay a lot more for voice actors.

>proves those goddamn nips can sell BDs cheaper, they just don't want to

They aren't going to sell more if they are cheaper. They will lose money. There are not many people who are willing to pay for these animations and many of those who are willing to are willing to pay a lot for them. The best gusiness model is to keep prices as high as possible as the market size will not increase with the price falling. You will essentially erode your own profit margin for nothing and devalue your product perhaps permananently.
>>
>>111836387
Wakfu is done in flash though, which is probably a lot cheaper/faster.

I'm pretty sure there are, but they are not centralized in a single region. If they had a centralized, worldwide distribution system and cheaper prices, foreigners would most certainly buy enough to cover the cost of lowering the prices and then some. This would have the added benefit of having more people getting into the "collecting" mentality in the hobby. Blueray on your shelf also serves as a limited form of marketing. People coming into your room will see it and may get curious or ask for you to lend it to them, which may, in turn, give them an interest in anime or, if already interested, may make him desire to buy BDs himself. This would expand their market instead of shrinking it further and further.

You're not buying a blu-ray, you're investing into an anime serie. The blu-ray is merely the reward.

If you simply want the BD, wait for the campaign to end. Then you'll have the choice between buying the japanese BD for 200$ or wait 2 years for your country to get the BD for 80$, or pirate it.

Personally, I don't think that 100$ is a lot for a full series, in my country they sell the complete DVD box of an anime series for that price.

>>111836758
>You have no idea what the fuck you're talking about. Imiashi is a pretty big name on the animation circuit...
At least get his name right before you claim authroity. Why would you fund LWA if you were interested in seeing Imaishi animation? He did none of the animation in that and wasn't claimed to and it is not animated in his style at all. You could have talked about Yoh Yoshinari but really you are the one who has no idea what the fuck you are talking about.

Its not ironic in the slightest. The point I made is you were basing your claim on someones name you didn't even know how to spell correctly as made clear by your last post where you still spelt it incorrectly. I just made a typo.

LWA2's Kickstarter started a few months after the first movie came out on Blu-ray and the want for more was alive and well. Sword of the Stranger is seven years old at this point so it's harder to get people hyped with it.

I'm sure it'll hit something like 50k by tomorrow.

The problem right now is that they have essentially done a bunch of work that is guaranteed to be wasted since 600K won't be met.

If they put it at 200K they can probably get funded to like 250-400ish. Take out a loan or partner up with somebody and make the rest back off BD sales like any other anime.

I didn't change anything. My main point was that the kickstarter had hype because the people behind TTGL were working on it and that Trigger was headed by Imiashi, nowhere did I say Imiashi animated LWA that is something YOU brought up because you fail at reading comprehension, now you're desperately trying to backpedal.

No that wasn't even close to your point, keep changing your argument though. Your point was that Imaishi was a big name and people would fund LWA because of him and his past works. Nothing to do with him being head of a studio that happened to be connected to LWA.

>These committees are usually composed of people with an investor's mindset who look to profit first and then to creative awesomeness, if at all. This can often lead to projects stalled or mired in bureaucracy, indecision, and conflicts of interest. Production committees also generally require intellectual property buyouts in which the creatives involved essentially sacrifice all rights to their work just so they can see their dreams come to fruition in any form at all. Kickstarter will allow our artists to retain their rights and control as well as maintain their passion and investment for the lifetime of the series and any spin-offs. We also have less "cooks in the kitchen," so to speak, so that creative direction will be decisive. No marketing or advertising based creative decisions or delays here!

I'm not even sure what this is supposed to mean. You really can't compare a simple typo to repeatedly spelling the name of someone wrongly who's fame is central to your arguments claim to superior knowledge and authority when such a mistake makes it abunduntly clear the argument comes from a position of ignorance.

>In both of those lines I mentioned that Imiashi name helped the kickstarter, now where in any of that did I mention he animated LWA

You clearly implied this in your original statement that fans of Imaishi's animation would be interested in funding LWA because of his involvement due to their awareness of his past works. Why would fans of someones animation be interested in funding something if not for the fact they are animating it? This was your point. That because of Imaishi and the fact he worked on TTGL and P&S people would fund LWA. Not Trigger. Not 'the same people' or anything like that but Imaishi. Strongly implying you believe he has some direct and strong involvement in the project that likely includes animation.

You can deny that if you want or try hide behind 'your reading is bad i didn't say that' but it is clearly backpedalling on your part if you do.

To be honest, it's about right. Animation cost a LOT of money, mainly because it takes a lot of time. They want to do it right with top-tier animation so they are setting the bar high.

In video games, you can easily reuse a lot of content, and in the end modelisation and animation are what cost the most. Luckily you don't have to do tons of animations either (less than 24 minutes at least), modelling difficuty depends on a lot of factors though.

And this is why you're pathetic, you believe there's some hierarchy to spelling errors all because your autistic rant backfired on you.

>You clearly implied this in your original statement that fans of Imaishi's animation would be interested in funding LWA because of his involvement due to their awareness of his past works.

Except I didn't. I said Imiashi, as a fucking person, is a well known figure among animation enthusiasts and that people who are familiar with his work would jump on the chance of funding a project for HIS studio not because he's directly involved with the project.

>Why would fans of someones animation be interested in funding something if not for the fact they are animating it? This was your point.

Except that wasn't my point. Fans of animation would fund it just for the notion that it's being made by the people behind TTGL which I've repeated several times already.

>That because of Imaishi and the fact he worked on TTGL and P&S people would fund LWA. Not Trigger.

You said this part and none of the rest of which you claim you said, you are adding that all in now after the fact, or as I said moving the goalposts. Trigger nor any other studio or artists were mentioned in your post just Imaishi and his work on TTGL and P&S drawing attention to LWA.

The models look nice and all, but watching them in motion would be pretty nice

>No I believe that when you claim superior knowledge and demonstrate a lack of knowledge while attempting to do so you lose credibility.
And this is coming from a retard who points out a typo while making one himself.

>You said this part and none of the rest of which you claim you said

Except I did, you just quoted one post. My entire stance has been around the fact that the TTGL staff are big names and Imiashi is the most well known of the staff, YOU were wrong because YOU stated that I implied that he was directly involved with LWA and that people only contributed because they wanted to see his animation style in it.

According to what they said on KS, all staff will get a percentage of the sales instead of getting paid by normal means
Still strange that they asked for only 100k

Did you even watch Iroha? It was the best thing that's ever come out of PA Works.

Holy shit all that money for a movie, a movie which they can put on theaters to make all their money back right away versus selling actual BDs for OVAs, god damn jews.
This is why I hate kickstarter, companies just want to use it so they are risk free when they release their product even if it's a failure they won't care, and you know it won't be otherwise it'd not get funded.

well 14k in one day, they could make it. i hope they do.

What the fuck does Mari Okada have to do with anything? I haven't even seen Hanasaku but it's the same director. Do you have a problem with how the show was directed? Don't bring up completely irrelevant people related to irrelevant aspects of something.

I have seen other works by Ando and the man is great.

Im just stating what I experienced. Everytime I get people to tell me about the film, they say that it's a cool film but that a great one either. It's definitely on my watch list though.
I dropped Hanasaku halfway through, it wasn't anything special and certainly not my cup of tea.

My point is that he isn't a particularily well talented or well known director if you compare him to a Yuasa, Oshii or Imaishi.
Hell even Yoshinari managed to become more popular than him with just one 24 min movie.
