The campaign raised US$215,433 and hired Michael Sinterniklaas to produce the English dub of at NYAV Post. The standard and deluxe editions are slated to ship in North America on November 15.
The 2010 film of the 2008 original net anime (ONA) became available digitally on the iTunes Store in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand in 2011. The film adapted the original six-episode net series and added new scenes, a new ending, and a theme song by Kalafina.
The ONA also inspired a manga and fanbook in 2010 and the "Time of Eve act 0X" iPhone app in 2012.
