British distributor Anime Limited's Kickstarter campaign for MADHOUSE's Mai Mai Miracle film ended on Friday after raising US$107,153, well beyond its original US$30,000 goal. The campaign will produce an English dub, as well as translate and bundle the original theatrical pamphlet. The box is expected to reach backers in October.
Anime Limited describes the story in this 2009 film:
Shinko, is a third grade elementary school student with a magically active imagination. She spends a lot of her time listening to her grandfather's history lessons, imagining what her town was like 1,000 years earlier. One day, a sad and sombre girl called Kiiko transfers to Shinko's school from Tokyo. A strong friendship soon grows between the two girls as Shinko helps Kiiko come out of her shell and deal with her loss - all thanks to their adventures, both imagined and real.
