AnimEigo to Launch Kickstarter for AD Police Video Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
North America anime distributor AnimEigo announced at its Anime Weekend Atlanta panel on Saturday that it plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign next year to reissue the AD Police anime. It also still plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign for Riding Bean this year, after previously aiming for this past summer.
AD Police began as a spinoff of the science-fiction original video anime series Bubblegum Crisis. AnimEigo had released the 1990 AD Police original video anime series on videotape and DVD under the title AD Police Files. The 1998-1999 television remake Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040 spawned its own AD Police television series in 1999.
AnimeEigo successfully funded a Kickstarter to release the Bubblegum Crisis original video anime series on Blu-ray Disc in 2013. It also reached its goal for a "Otaking Edition Subtitled Anime Blu-ray" for the Otaku no Video anime within 14 hours of the project's launch in May.
