The Grisaia: Phantom Trigger anime adaptation is nearly here! Through this campaign, you can help fund the production and localization of the anime, and get exclusive Blu-ray sets and other limited rewards!
The original Grisaia visual novel series, along with its anime adaptation, are beloved across the globe. In fact, the localizations of the first three games raised over $500k right here on Kickstarter! This success led to a follow-up visual novel series, Grisaia: Phantom Trigger, which has been a smash hit both within Japan and worldwide. Now, we're putting the wheels in motion to create an anime adaptation of Phantom Trigger!
For this project, it was important to us to retain full creative control, and we decided to forgo the traditional route of teaming up with a production company to finance the Phantom Trigger animation. This means that now, more than ever, we need your help to make this dream a reality! To this end, we've prepared a number of brand-new and exclusive rewards sure to catch the eye of longtime Grisaia fans and newcomers alike.
Please lend us a hand to help bring the Grisaia: Phantom Trigger anime to fans like you all over the world!
Following the Heath Oslo incident, the existence of the US-Japanese anti-terror organization CIRS has become a matter of public knowledge. CIRS has been rebuilt from the ground up, and its most covert functions spun off to a new agency: SORD (Social Ops, Research & Development).
The goal of SORD is to train a new generation of operatives to defend the country against future threats. To that end, the organization has established a series of schools up and down the country. Mihama Academy, more-or-less left to rot after its abrupt closure, has been given new purpose as one such 'specialist training school'.
This new incarnation of Mihama Academy is home to a diverse group of students, who every day work to polish their unusual skills - sometimes on the job. Mihama now entrusts the misfit girls who attend it with guns and live ammunition.
Paying their own safety no heed, these students are again and again plunged into dangerous extrajudicial missions - all for the good of the realm.
"We've been provided with a place in the world.
That alone isn't enough - there wouldn't be any meaning in living, if that was all we had...
It's not enough just to be made use of by others. I live by my own strength, and I fight to survive.
That's the only way those of us who actually make it through can find forgiveness..."
No matter how much life grinds them down, what future awaits these girls, who've themselves chosen the path of the gun?

Risks and challenges
The Grisaia: Phantom Trigger animation is already in development, so we feel confident in being able to deliver the content to backers on the planned release date.
Our biggest challenge is the production of high-quality rewards for the campaign, but we have many years of experience in merchandise production as well as established business relationships with a number of manufacturing companies, and we are confident we will be able to meet and exceed the expectations of our backers.
