REJOICE! Little Witch Academia 2 Kickstarter is live


Trigger and Yoshinari here to save the day.

UPDATE: And in less than 12 hours, TRIGGER's LWA2 KS has reached it's goal of $150,000. Congratulations!

Trigger's Little Witch Academia was a fantastic one-off OVA with beautiful animation, fantastic direction, and a charming self contained story. It's probably my favorite anime of the year, because it satisfies me on approximately every possibly level. Go watch it for free on Youtube if you haven't already.

The folks at Trigger are back again, this time with a Kickstarter for their upcoming Little Witch Academia 2 project. Regardless of how this $150,000 KS turns out, director Yoshinari Yoh and company plan on making a new 20 minute episode of the popular OVA. If they reach their Kickstarter goal however, they plan to extend the whole thing by fifteen minutes, adding more action, more story, and more awesome.

As of this writing, the project is well over a third the way to being funded, and I have no doubts that they'll reach their goal either today or tomorrow. The real question is what type of stretch goals can we expect to see as more fans continue to throw their money at the project.

One look at the KS page makes it fairly clear that Trigger doesn't plan on starting production on LWA2 until their new TV series, Kill-la-Kill, is finished. In the long run, this is probably a good thing as it means both projects will receive the full attention they deserve. I'm ok with this.

In the interest of transparency, I dropped $100.00 on the Little Witch Academia 2 Kickstarter and I regret nothing. 

Anybody else planning on throwing money at this? Sound off below!
