Whelp, I'll be pledging for Dear Brother set 2 during that time. I may potentially pledge for Black Jack to help it out.

Oooh! I didn't expect that the second set of Dear Brother would be part of this. That might be smart since the first set was a success and beat its goal (even if most of the excess came, for whatever reason, after the deadline) and success with the second could help build momentum as secure a victory for the site. It's seems a little risky to ask for money for the next set before anybody has their copy of the first one, but I could imagine this working out. Much the same applies to Creamy Mami; Anime Sols' marquee success.

I'll certainly be willing to put another $90 down for the second Dear Brother set. I really want to see this series make it.

I'll might make that pledge to the 24-hour specials that I keep pondering loudly too. Maybe I'll make a small contribution to Black Jack too, as a token of solidarity.

I wonder how the finances behind this work out. Somebody has to end up on the hook for the matching funds. Perhaps it's justified as an investment in the site's long-term prospects.

Whatever the case, I do hope that it succeeds.

Creamy Mami's kind of weak in the second season, though. I hope the demand is still there for it.

Hey, hey, the 2nd set is up for Dear Brother. I'll hold off to the weekend to make certain I hit the time slot.

Why do Mami sets get so little time? The previous one too, had barely over a month to reach its goal.
I'm no business major or anything, and I'm not buying these sets either, but if I were a customer, I'd really feel exploited by having to pledge for three different sets in little over six months, when not even the first one has shipped. With Christmas season coming, wallets are coming tight too. I know you have your own bills to pay, but you've got to give your supporters some time to breathe, especially considering how few of them you have

Well the good news is Set 1 is all sent off to manufacturing finally!
Waiting for the schedule now from Rightstuf... Probably about a month, mid Jan at the latest I would suspect till they're shipping.
Set 2 will take MUCH less time overall since all the back and forth about package/menu design specifications, logo trademarks, UPC codes etc... is done with.

Why do they keep shortening the Creamy Mami deadlines ShockedQuestion What's Pierrot planning here?
They also have a new image banner for the series too

If we look on the bright side, the Black Friday weekend promotion would make the goal be $9,000 instead of $18,000 since all pledges will be doubled. We need to find more Creamy Mami fans who don't know about AnimeSols, or have everybody with tight wallets go for the $5 or $10 pledges since those will be doubled.

It would work out that way if every single person pledged for that promotion, but they likely won't until last minute.

Crow: Actually, the second Mami set had about two months. People just sat it out until the last bleepin' minute.

It's better than what you pay for Aniplex stuff. And they still charge per disc.

Anime Sols uploaded pics of the boxes. They're shipping soon, if they haven't already.

I'm guessing it's because fans keep slacking off on crowdfunding 'em.

They got three days. Plus, they can buy the older boxsets. So it might just work out yet.

Does this mean you have to pledge only half as much to get the DVD set, or that your pledge gets matched by somebody, which makes success for the drive as a whole more likely?

You could also cancel what you already paid into Black Jack and repay for it, and then it'll be double. Cool

At this point, Mami and Dear Brother are more than halfway there, with Black Jack similarly close behind.
