Dear Brother DVD Set 1 Release Reaches Crowdfunding Goal

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Anime Sols' US$13,000 goal reached for shojo drama anime with 1 day to spare

Anime Sols reached its crowdfunding goal of US$13,000 for the first North American DVD set release of the Dear Brother (Oniisama E...) shojo drama anime on Thursday. The fundraiser reached its goal with one day to spare.

As of press time, Magical Idol Pastel Yumi, Hurricane Polymar, Tezuka's 24-hour specials, and the second set of Black Jack are also still funding.

Based on Riyoko Ikeda's (The Rose of Versailles) original manga, the Dear Brother anime follows Nanako Misono after she enters an all-girls private school. Nanako writes letters about her day-to-day life to her "oniisama," a previous teacher from her cram school. A middle-class girl, Nanako encounters hardships and drama at the prestigious school of female elites.

The series ran for 39 episodes and is also available for streaming on Hulu and Viki services. It has not previously been released on home video in North America.

Anime Sols reached the goal for the first Creamy Mami set in September, followed by the second set this month. The site has also successfully funded the first DVD box set of the Black Jack anime television series.
