The reason why nowadays anime are getting more and more disgustingly moe and adult is because they’re the only things that sell. Anime companies that try to break the mold with new, exciting, amazing ideas can’t make profit because people don’t pay for good anime, and therefore go bankrupt. Thus the trend in anime these days is moving towards just creating ideas and series that can produce merchandise like figurines and oppai mousepads, that’s why anime is dying now. Anime companies with great ideas need new ways to get budget for their superb series.
Enter the team and Masahiro Ando, a famous animator dude known for Evangelion and Ghost in the Shell. He’s one of the struggling few creative minds in the anime industry still trying to break the limits of anime and push new ideas. He’s been in several companies that crashed because they didn’t break even. The stuff they create is brilliant to watch. But it’s just not the kind of stuff you’d made figurines out of.
So he had the bright idea of starting a Kickstarter to get the budget.
Now you may not be very keen on this series despite the awesome trailer, or even watching anime in general. But I would like to implore all of you reading my long word chunk to back this project and projects like this up. No matter how passionate and creative a person is, if he doesn’t get funding for the things he creates, no matter how many times he falls and fails and crashes and picks himself up to try again, eventually he’ll just give up.
And all we’ll have left is anime made not by people who love what they do, proud of what they do and want to share it with the world, but people who make boring things with the intention of sucking as much money out of us as possible.
I want to keep creative spirit alive. I want to lend my support to people with the same love and drive for the things they do, just like myself.
And so as miserly as I am, I pledged US$75 (hell yeah im getting the dvd), I hope you guys lend your support too.
Oh, and how Kickstarter works is if unfortunately they don’t meet their pledged goal, you get your money back, so no worries about your money disappearing into thin air and nothing being made.
I HOPE I CONVINCED YOU. CHECK IT OUT.
