Since its launch in 2009, Kickstarter has grown into a venerable funding behemoth. over $1 billion has been raised to pay for 135,000 projects, which range from the Oculus Rift to Cards Against Humanity. Everything, from films, to books, to interesting tech projects have become a reality thanks to the funding of countless backers.
Even the anime industry’s been getting involved with the platform (and its similar competitors), with projects like Kick Heart, the Bubblegum Crisis Ultimate Edition, and an attempt to raise money for animator dorms. Heck, Anime Sols made the crowd funding model the basis of its operations!
Which brings us to today.
Though the number of anime-related Kickstarter projects are on the rise, they’re beginning to slip through the cracks. For each Bubblegum Crisis, three more projects slip through the cracks. To make things worse, Kickstarter’s site isn’t the best at maintaining an indexed listing of projects.
That’s where we come in.
Starting this weekend, we’ll be maintaining a curated list of anime-themed KickStarter projects, updated (roughly) daily. This will be a universal listing, which will include the name, a link to the project, the time remaining, and the total amount raised as of the update.
If there’s any other information you’d to to see, let us know and we’ll see about adding it in. Likewise, if there’s a project you’re running, or one that you’d like to see highlighted, drop us a line and let us know!
