Nekopara OVA Kickstarter Launches, Meets Goal in 1 Hour

posted on by Alex Mateo
Every US$100,000 extends OVA length by 10 minutes

Video game and manga publisher Sekai Project's Kickstarter campaign met its initial goal of US$100,000 to create an original anime video (OVA) adaptation of Sayori and Neko Works' NEKOPARA adult visual novel on Thursday, within one hour of the Kickstarter's launch.

The initial goal of US$100,000 will go toward a 20 minute OVA, but Sekai Project revealed that every US$100,000 afterward will extend the OVA by 10 minutes to a maximum of $500,000 and 60 minutes. As of press time, the project has earned US$265,780. The campaign will end on February 11.

Sekai Project released the Nekopara Vol. 1 visual novel on PC via Steam in December 2014. The company describes the story:

What's NEKOPARA? Why, it's a cat paradise!

Kashou Minazuki, the son of a long line of Japanese confection makers moved out to open his own shop "La Soleil" as a patisserie.

But upon moving out, hidden amongst his things were two of the catgirls ("neko"), Chocola and Vanilla, that the family had been raising. When he tried to send them back, they begged and pleaded until he gave in and now they've opened La Soleil together.

With two nekos who really, REALLY love their master trying their very best and occasionally failing -- a heartful comedy opens for business!

Sekai Project also released the Nekopara Vol. 0 fandisc prequel on PC in August 2015, and the Nekopara Vol. 2 game on February 20. Sekai Project also released the first game in an uncensored adult version. Neko Works revealed in May that a Nekopara Vol. 3 is under development.
