News I.G, Yuasa Adds Fundraising Goals for Kick-Heart Anime
posted on 2012-10-24 20:20 EDT
The Kickstarter fundraiser for Production I.G and Masaaki Yuasa's Kick-Heart anime was updated with new stretch goals on Wednesday. The project will add Spanish subtitles if US$175,000 is raised by the October 31 deadline. If US$200,000 is raised, there will be an English voice-over dub (with Richard Epcar who voiced Batou in Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence), as well as a premiere screening and party. Reaching the US$225,000 threshold will add an animated music video, 3 to 5 minutes long, of Oorutaichi directed by Yuasa.
As of 8:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, the project has raised US$148,309 with 6 days left to reach the main US$150,000 goal.

If this film causes more permanent damage than most Pokémon outings, that's wholly the fault of its main character, Keldeo.
On the whole, The Battle for Doldrey is a mixed bag of strengths and weaknesses. While that may be true of most things, there are few places where those lines are so clearly drawn as in this film.
When the set ends, it's on a note of combined hope and sadness that drives us onto the next volume as surely as the mounting disasters of last volume drove us to this one.
You may not get anything substantial from this brief OVA, but it's a lot of fun to watch regardless.
This next book in the series shows stronger plot direction, a more unified theme, and an art style that continues to improve.
