A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to release an international Blu-ray edition of Yasuhiro Yoshiura’s Time Of Eve film. Pied Piper, DIRECTIONS, and Studio Rikka are the companies that helped to create Time Of Eve and they are behind this campaign. The film, made in 2010, added new scenes, a new ending, and a theme song to the original six-episode anime series.
The Kickstarter is aiming to raise $18,000 (approximately £12,000) by 22 June. Planned features for the Blu-ray editions sold though the Kickstarter campaign include Time of Eve: The Movie with English subtitles, bonus video features such as interviews with the main cast and Yoshiura, a 40-page art book and eight postcards.
The 10 people who pledge $150 or more will receive an original drawing of Nagi by character designer Ryuusuke Chayama, the five who pledge $200 can pick their favourite character for Chayama to draw, and the first one who pledged $500 or more will receive the last original set of scripts from the film signed by director Yoshiura.
The film is available digitally on iTunes – the creators thought this would be enough, but fans kept requesting a Blu-ray edition.
