Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Been a busy couple of months for me with grad school and all but for all you old school otaku out there, have I got news for you. Robert J. Woodhead the founder of Animeigo who released popular anime series as Otaku No Video has set up a Kickstarter project to release the original Bubblegum Crisis on Blu-Ray. The project started last week and has raised over $80,000 dollars as of this writing. So your probably wondering why he is going thru with this on Kickstarter, well Robert states on the projects Kickstater page, “Anyone who follows the foreign-film business know that changes in the anime market over the last decade has made life much more riskier for releasers, and the result has been that small companies like ours have to be very conservative in our licensing decisions when it comes to niche titles (which we like the most)” Source: Bubblegum Crisis Ultimate Edition Kickstarter Page.

Granted I know how hard the industry is hurting We as fans know that the big three distributors ADV Films, Geneon Pioneer and Bandai Entertainment have gone bankrupt due to the stress of the industry loosing steam. However projects like these really give me as a fan hope that the industry will one day go back to its glory days when we get to see excellent series like this getting a new lease on life by giving new generations of fans a chance to see series like this for themselves. So if your interested in supporting this project, then click on the link below and learn more about it and discover some of the great rewards for supporting this project. And I have to say that the biggest award is something a true otaku would love. Granted I would love to tell you more about it, but you have to see it for yourself.

So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.
