Japanese/Thai service aims to fund animated projects only

The Japanese/Thai IT service development company Goopa launched a preview of its crowdfunding service Anipipo on Thursday.

The service, which will be available in English and Japanese, is being developed to exclusively fund animated projects through individual contributors. The site is led by Hiroaki Taira, Vincent Sethiwan, Sam Tiyavutiroj and directed by Kentaro Sakakibara of the Japanese investment firm Samurai Incubate.

The company launched a Japanese social network last year, also titled Goopa (a combination of "group" and "party"), that is aimed specifically at university clubs in Japan.

Crowdfunding services such as Kickstarter funded Production I.G and Masaaki Yuasa's anime short Kick-Heart and Otakon and Studio Nasu's beat-em-up video game Crisis Heart Brawlers, Clash at Otakon!
