Trigger Adds Stretch Goals For Little Witch Academia 2

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Anime studio Trigger added a stretch goal for US$500,000 in Kickstarter fundraising pledges for Little Witch Academia 2 on Wednesday. If the new goal is met, Trigger will add an audio commentary track and a "making-of" documentary to the standard Blu-ray Disc release. The Blu-ray release will bundle the anime's original soundtrack and gengashū (animation drawing collection) book. Trigger also noted that Good Smile Company may "consider" making a Little Witch Academia figure if the stretch goal is reached.

Trigger met its US$150,000 pledge goal for extending its tentatively titled Little Witch Academia 2 project on Tuesday, less than five hours after starting its Kickstarter fundraising campaign.

The studio had announced at Anime Expo last Friday that it would crowdfund the sequel to its Anime Mirai Little Witch Academia project. The sequel reunites the original staff, and they aim to finish the episode by winter 2014. (Trigger is working on another anime project, this fall's Kill la Kill television series.) Trigger already has the funds to create a 20-minute episode and plans to use the $150,000 in Kickstarter funds to add 15 minutes of run time.

As of this writing, the campaign has raised US$357,479 and surpassed the US$215,433 for Studio Rikka's Time of Eve Blu-ray release and the US$201,164 in pledges raised for Masaaki Yuasa's Kick-Heart campaign.
