Gunsmith Cats Bluray Kickstarter

A little late on this, but Animeigo’s Kickstarter to get the Gunsmith Cats OVA on bluray started up a few days ago and made it’s goal in a little less than 4 1/2 hours. If you want to get in on it here’s the link. I still need to do so myself, but there’s still plenty of time. I’ve got the old ADV Films DVD (the image above) and just loved it back in the day. Very much looking forward to getting it on bluray.

And speaking of Gunsmith Cats, were getting some new anime. Unfortunately, it’s just a short (for now, crossing fingers), but it’s better than nothing.

ARIA the ANIMATION Dub Kickstarter

Just wanted to give this project a shout out. If funded, the first season of ARIA will be dubbed. Please support this project if you want to see that happen, or if you’re like me and just want own this beautiful show on bluray. If this succeeds, the other seasons will likely follow suit as either stretch goals of this Kickstarter or a separate one.

Let's Dub ARIA The ANIMATION -- Kicktraq Mini

Edit 6 (9/10): Looks like this project was an overwhelming success with more than a half million raised. The retail version of the blurays is set to release sometime in 2019, but if you want them sooner, I suggest getting in on the Kickstarter while you still have some time. Big thanks to everyone who made this possible!

Here’s a look at all the stretch goals.

Skip Beat! Kickstarter

Just wanted to give this thing a shout out. We’re in the home stretch for this campaign and very close to making the goal. If you or someone you know can throw a few bucks at it, please do so before the campaign ends. This is our one shot at getting this series on home video in North America and it would be a shame to let it slip through our fingers when we’re so close.
