And it only took five hours to do it.
I just wrote this article the other day about Studio Trigger’s announcement of a Kickstarter to fund a second installment of Little Witch Academia, and the project has already collected $233,195 as of this writing. The initial goal was $150,000. There are still 29 days left.
Even though Studio Trigger has well exceeded their goal, you could still donate to A) help fund this and future projects and B) collect some of the donation incentives. A $20 donation will get you a download of both Little Witch Academia 2 and its artbook, along with your name on the “Special Thanks” section of their website and a desktop for your computer. $50 will get you all of that along with a physical copy of the artbook and the standard Blu-Ray release of the new short. There are even more incentives for higher donations- Check out the Kickstarter page to see them all.
I for one never doubted that the Kickstarter for Little Witch Academia 2 would reach its goal eventually- but I never thought it would happen so quickly. It just goes to show that you should never underestimate the power of a dedicated fanbase.
