I think the price is more manageable and feasible this time, I hope.

Lower the goal and just swear as much as humanly possible for the dub. If that clip is anything to go by, they will manage to drop more f-bombs than panty and stocking. Interesting choice

Well, some of the voice acting wasn't bad and some of those lines and delivery got me laughing, so this might be worthwhile to back as a comedy. Might be the first in history to have a "serious" show deliberately dubbed to be "so bad it's funny"...

Ever since Ghost Stories, right?

Well, at least the cast list indicates that they know what they're doing and some of the more interesting choices were at least deliberate. Kind of surprised to see YongYea on there, but it is cool to see that he is gaining a little traction since he moved to LA specifically to pursue voice acting.

I wouldn’t say that this was a serious anime to begin with, what with spoiler[the main protagonist getting a one minute long walk sequence down a long hallway set to some rock music and part of the climax involves a character making incomprehensible noises and running around like a nut job because he got infected by a parasite].

Honestly I’m hoping that it gets funded this time because it was a hilarious watch.

It's hard to work up much enthusiasm for an anime that--by all word-of-mouth--is just godawful.

Well, heard that a dub can even make a bad show look good? There's quite a handful of LatAm dubs from shows that are said to be terrible yet the dub's acting makes it work. Ghost Stories is an English example, so so far, we can expect a bonkers dub from this.
