Little Witch Academia 2 Kickstarter Ends With US$625,518 Pledged

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Anime studio Trigger ended its Kickstarter fundraising campaign for Little Witch Academia 2 on Wednesday. The campaign accumulated US$625,518 in pledges, reaching both its primary and stretch goals.

The final product is slated to run for 40 minutes, and it will include a making-of documentary and audio commentary. The limited edition Blu-ray will also include an original soundtrack and a gengashū (animation drawing collection) book.

The studio announced at Anime Expo that it would crowdfund an extension to 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.)

The staff posted a preview of the packaging and booklet that will be included with the first Little Witch Academia anime's Blu-ray release. The anime will be released this month and pre-orders will be taken at Studio Trigger's booth at Comic Market 84 this weekend and through Good Smile Company's online shop in Japan. Pre-orders in English will begin on August 13.

The release includes the anime, the hour-long documentary "Sonotoki Mahō wa Umareru" (And Then, Magic Was Born), the original soundtrack, and a 112-page mook (magazine-style book). The release includes subtitles in Japanese, English, Spanish, Chinese, German, French, and Italian.
