Anime Sols reached its crowdfunding goal of US$13,000 for the third and final North American DVD set release of the Dear Brother (Oniisama E...) shojo drama anime on Thursday. The fundraiser reached its goal within hours of its deadline.
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. The first two DVD sets were successfully funded last year. 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 in November and the final set in March. The site has also successfully funded the first two DVD box sets of the Black Jack anime television series.
