      I have been doing a little research this morning - Anima Studios / Anima Project Studios / Carlos remains active on a couple of platforms - Steam Forums and Twitter, yet continues to leave Kickstarter backers hanging (you can easily check this out for yourselves to verify, but you can see multiple posts and/or tweets in the past few days and beyond).
      .
      Today marks six months since the last update. It is now over three years since the projected delivery date for the extended campaign, and for those who backed the original Kickstarter is is over five years past due. And in that time Anima Studios still have not delivered physical rewards.
      .
      The 'Anima: Gate of Memories - Beyond Fantasy Edition' was released over a year ago and includes physical elements produced for that package.
      .
      Current status:
      • Original KS campaign overdue (Jan 2013): 1922 days or 63 months
      • Extended funding GoM campaign overdue Nov 2014): 1254 days or 41 months
      • Release of Anima: Gate of Memories Beyond Fantasy Edition: 412 days or 13 months
      • Last login KS by AS/Cedric/Carlos: 181 days or 6 months

      @Matotron: Carlos seemed to suggest that two campaigns are on the horizon, but it is not totally clear when the launch windows for those will be.

      It does nothing to reassure me that there are sufficient funds to produce all the pledged-or physical rewards for the two Gate of Memories Kickstarters - the *only* thing that will give me that assurance now will be evidence of produced items and/or their delivery.

      I have little doubt I will be posting another monthly comment here tomorrow marking exactly 6 months since the last campaign update by Carlos. :(

      @Tim Crothers: you nail many of my own sentiments there; not bothering to log in shows how low down the priority list is it seems.

      *if* Carlos/AS did an Anima Tactics related KS I would sorely tempted, but I would also be incredibly wary based on this experience.

    6. Matotron on May 4

      Are they really planning a new campaign to launch before this one is completed?
      That seems overly optimistic.

      Being a loooong time Anima Tactics and Anima world fan I apparently made a mistake backing both of the AGoM largely. Looking back the total I paid isn't worth the rewards even if they do eventually end up showing up. Being a backer of scores and scores of kickstarter's I truly appreciate that production often is much more difficult than planned for. Delays are extremely understandable. Not logging in once a month-ish and updating on status (which takes just minutes) even if it's just a 'still here and working but nothing new to show' lets us know the creator gives a d**n. Not doing so is just poor etiquette and responsibility. Needless to say I'll not be backing any of the groups involved in either of these kickstarters again.

      Thanks for the update, Leon. Hope we will be seeing what we were promised.

      Carlos has acknowledged an update is long overdue (again):

      https://forum.gateofmemories.com/viewtopic.php…

      "100% agree with you. I should already have done a KS update, and as always, I've been not on time to do on time.
      We will send the new campaing to Quality Check next friday; once it is ready, I will do a looong update along the ways we are going to send the rewards, the new campaign, and fiiiinally "finish" everything.
      Of course, if you think that it is a must to do it sooner, please, tell me.

      As always... sorry for the delay.

      Carlos B. García"

    10. Magarch on April 10

      I guess a lot of backers just gave up on their rewards.

      Still no news about the exclusive miniature. I wonder if the work just dropped because of lack of money.

      Leon Mallett on April 7

      Another month has passed, and still no update.

      AS has updated about prospective Anima crowd-funding campaigns, yet is not answering about the status of the one that is over three years late: https://forum.gateofmemories.com/viewtopic.php…

      In the past few weeks I have asked Kickstarter to contact AS/Carlos to encourage him to update here, but clearly that has not worked. The KS advice was to contact AS/Carlos through social media - that has failed to elicit a response either now or previously.

      Current status:
      Project overdue: 1224 days
      Last login KS by AS/Cedric/Carlos: 151 days
      Last KS update: 151 days

      Backers eligible for the Bearer: 310
      Number of potential Nameless pledged: 54
      Number of potential Nameless pledged: 620

      My main concern right now is about funds remaining until AS/Carlos posts otherwise.

      Unless development of the extra/expanded DLC and other digital development elements not originally planned (switch port etc.) was done for free, or within the expected development costs envelope of the video game itself (excluding physical rewards), then those costs would need to be met. My fear is that they *may* have been met through the funds set aside for physical rewards and other sales. This is why I think AS/Carlos has been pushing Steam sales and why there was a release of the deluxe edition last year - to generate funds to finish this. The latest crowd-funding announcement (from the link above) does nothing to allay my concerns.

      Leon Mallett on March 7

      Well, it seems we are back to business as usual with this project; 4 months since the last update which indicated physical rewards would be delivered in December of January. We are now in March and no evidence of progress. Yet AS continues to post on Twitter and Steam

      Given that development has taken years longer than planned, has that coding time and additional development eaten into funds which should have been set aside for production of physical rewards?

      Is the push on Steam and last year's release of the deluxe edition a way for AS to try and recoup funds to pay for the promised physical rewards? In the absence of other evidence I am starting to think that is possible.

      @ Matotron: in December 2017/January 2018 according to the last update. :(

    14. Matotron on February 21

      Getting to be a bit of a theme with projects I backed not doing what they say they are going to do. When are the rewards going out?

    15. Missing avatar

      Leon Mallett on February 1

      So another two and half months have passed and again no update.

      The last update included: "If things go well, the full campaign will be released along with all the rewards in Christmas or January. "

      I would be nice to get a new update with a revised hoped-for delivery window.

      We are over 3 years beyond the original delivery date, and 11 months beyond the release of Anima: Gate of Memories Beyond Fantasy Edition.

      Lateness is not the problem, people live with that. Lack of good communication is the problem and is the thing that is most unfair to the the hundreds of people who collectively pledged over $130,000 (plus whatever was raised via the website).

      So I ask you again Carlos, as I have many times before, please communicate with your backers.

    16. Frode Wist on January 22

      So, I didn't back high enough to get the Anima Unleashed book for the RPG - thought I wouldn't need it, but starting a campaign soon apparently and thought I'd ask here to see if I could maybe convince one of you to share a copy with me perhaps? :)

      6 months since the last Kickstarter update. 6 months.

      Still no answer to messages either via KS, the forum, email or Twitter. that is despite Anima Project/Studio/Carlos being observably active on Twitter - see below.

      The only thing I can take from that is that Carlos is unfortunately actively ignoring backers who have been waiting 3 years past delivery date (from this month).

      @Tim: I have sent another message encouraging an update, 2 weeks after my last message. Right now I would take just having some assurances of an approximate timeline and jpegs of the cards for the minis I really backed this for. That would keep me happy for a little while with the longer wait.

      Yeah. This is getting pretty silly. Can we just get some updates on the physical rewards? I'd love to see this and the other Anima campaign (which I also backed) finally wrapped up and finished. 3+ years overdue seems a little ridiculous at this point.

      Leon Mallett on July 4, 2017

      Another 2 months since the last update, could Anima Studios please provide regular updates, even at least monthly, if only to say no progress.

      I understand that this has been an unexpectedly complicated campaign, but those of us who backed it would be grateful for more frequent updates, and doing so could be done relatively quickly, less than 30 minutes per month.

      I sent an email to contact@gateofmemories.com last week to point out that I still had not received my digital rewards: The Digital Sketch Book: 10 Years of Anima; 30 minutes later I received a link for the artbook GoM. I sent a new mail to report the error by specifying well (with photo) of which book I was talking but since complete silence, no news ...

      I really feel that they don't care that not everyone has been delivered

    45. Cedric Delobelle Creator on June 11, 2016

      I think it will take from 30 to 60 days, if all goes well. We were focused on the game, now in the digital rewards and the physical ones. Thanks for all this patience ^^

      Is there a Est. date for when the Boxed DVD version will be shipped?
      I'm waiting on the Boxed DVD version to play the game, instead of using one of the Steam key's.
      I know it would come after the digital rewards have been done, but i'd like to know a Est. date for it. If known.

      Hi Cedric
      Thank you for the clarification. I'm looking forward to playing the game (haven't got around to it since I've been busy) as well as the additional Forsaken Book campaign.
      I'm also looking forward to this special skin. I'm hoping the special skin is for the Bearer!

      Once again, thanks for the clarification.

      It seems like it. I would like to see it released to other people too as a DLC (maybe at a later date or higher price), but I understand that other people may not want to.

    49. Alejandro Maroto Frasquet on June 9, 2016

      So The Forsaken Book is a DLC that contains a continuation of the game and new skins, right?

    50. Cedric Delobelle Creator on June 8, 2016

      Hi Wiston.
      The Forsaken Book is still a different pledge that will receive all the backers that pledged for the Forsaken Book. The only thing that was a gift from it was the True Ergo look, but the Forsaken Book itself would be a unique extended campaign. Give us a little more time to make it cool. As well, with it you will receive the special Skin codes, so any of you won't be left without what they pledged for. Don't worry. ^^
      This may sound classic, but, before anything, we wanted to finish the game and that it would be fun.
