Independent development circle Spicy Tails announced on Wednesday that the Kickstarter and Campfire crowdfunding campaigns for the virtual reality anime based on Isuna Hasekura's Spice & Wolf novels will launch on November 25. The Campfire campaign will be in Japanese and the Kickstarter campaign is intended for fans outside of Japan.
The anime is slated for release on HTC VIVE, Oculus Rift, and other platforms in early 2019. The anime will also be viewable on PC without a VR headset, and it will have English subtitles.
The television anime's voice actors Ami Koshimizu (Holo) and Jun Fukuyama (Kraft Lawrence) are returning. Hasekura is writing the anime's scenario and the novels' illustrator Jū Ayakura is credited with the character design. Keisuke Sakikibara is providing the 3D modeling and motion, and n-buna is composing the music. Yō Shimizu provided the concept art pictured at right and Masatoshi Sekai designed the logo.
Spicy Tails also developed Project Lux, which is also written by Hasekura. The PC game with VR support had an English release from Sekai Project on February 2 via Steam. Sekai Project announced in December that Limited Run Games would release a physical edition.
