About this project

 Wow, We're Funded!

Now that we have met the initial goal, we're going to hit the ground running. ADR scripts will be started and we'll get to work finalizing voice actors and compiling all of the necessary materials.   We should be into the studio about the time that the KickStarter closing period ends - we're not going to wait - so that we can get this into your hands as quick as we can!

Our initial stretch goal will be to mix the new English language track in a full 5.1 mix!   With the wonderful music for this show we really think that it's going to be incredible to add this to the program.   We will add this should we hit $120,000 in pledges!

We'll reveal this stretch goal soon - but let's focus on the first one first!

Join this campaign to help create an English Dubbed HD release for ARIA The ANIMATION! 

Akari Mizunashi, at the age of 15, has left everything behind to travel to a sparkling planet covered in water, Aqua, formerly known as Mars.  By the 24th century, humans have found a way to colonize the formerly uninhabitable planet.  

More than anything, Akari wants to be an "undine" - a female gondolier who navigates the canals of the Aquan city of Neo-Venezia. The city itself is a faithful replication of Manhome's (Earth) city of Venice.   To make sure that residents and tourists alike get the most from Neo-Venezia's many wonders, companies offering guided tours via gondola were formed, one of which is named Aria Company.

As she begins her training with the prestigious Aria Company, will she be up to the challenges that await her on the path to achieve her dream?    

ARIA The ANIMATION’s gentle poetry will take you to the truth: It’s all about savoring each moment of the journey along the way.

TRAILER

https://youtu.be/NraaWUZxWZw

Episode 1 for you to sample (this is the Japanese with English Subtitles version):

https://youtu.be/9QD6tBsic6g

Directed by Junichi Sato, who also directed Sailor Moon, Princess Tutu, Magic User's Club, Kaleido Star, Tamayura, amongst others, and has also been involved with almost 100 programs in various capacities, including series composition, storyboard, theme music, supervision, and scriptwriter.

The show is based on a series of manga by Kozue Amano.

ARIA's genre is often referred to as slice-of-life, in that the storylines are not rushed and more time is spent on exposition and visuals.  Sato-san often refers these titles as "Healing Anime."

A little over 75% of the project funds will be used for the dub and updating of the source materials of the program to Blu-Ray Quality, 15% will be used for the production of the physical media and packaging, and the remainder will be overhead and the fees to run the project on the platform.  

Your funds will go toward creating the best possible Blu-Ray release that we can - one that you will be proud to have on your shelf. Our production team are anime fans and collectors themselves, and will be uncompromising when it comes to review and approval of the dubbed script, the dub tracks, the video quality, and the authoring.

We will have stretch goals to add other merchandise items, and a couple of super stretch goals to add additional seasons to the project.

The anime market has become very difficult in terms of licensing and costs, and production, especially of deep catalog and niche titles, has become much more risky.  We love these shows, to be sure, but the market for them is certainly different.  Fans in general are focused on simulcasts and more recent programs, and this creates more hurdles when making investments in older shows or programs with specific audiences.  

We have lots of projects and programs that we would like to work on and bring to market in English, but because we are a smaller licensee, we have to be more conservative in our production decisions.  We also aren't completely sure what the size of the audience is for dubbing of back catalog.   So we received permission from our licensor to test this as a business model to see if it's something we might continue to use to bring titles to fans in HD and in English.  

It's possible if this project funds we may look to continue with others.

The Nozomi team has over the years dubbed more than five hundred episodes of anime, and we are focused on creating quality programs. We want to make sure that you'll be able to, if you haven't seen the show before, fall in love with it, and if you have seen it, to fall in love with it all over again. Our greatest hope is that adding an English track to this program will let more people discover this infectiously happy story.

As our partner on this project, we have chosen to work with Joe DiGiorgi at Headline Studios as our director, who we have worked closely with as a director and a producer on a number of our titles, including His and Her Circumstances, Comic Party, Boogiepop Phantom, The Third, amongst others.  Joe has also handled many well known dubs from classic titles such as Record of Lodoss War, Genshiken, Queen's Blade, and Ikki Tousen.  Headline Sound is based in New York City. 

All of the production staff we'll be using to do the work have been involved with anime productions in the past, including the director, the producer, and all voice actors. Together with Joe, we wanted to bring together a creative team of seasoned anime pros who can produce a timely delivered, high quality dub within our budget constraints.

Most importantly, Joe is excited about working on this project and to welcome backers into the studio for the Skype sessions, dubbing sessions, and to provide behind-the-scenes updates on the dubbing process.

We think this campaign can be a great win-win for YOU and the anime industry as a whole. As a backer, you can know that your funds are bringing the VAs into the recording booth, and you’ll come out of the project with a fabulous dub on Blu-ray AND insights into the creative process (plus lots of Kickstarter-exclusive goodies!)  

 

This is a Kickstarter Special Edition.  Once we have fulfilled all of the rewards, we will have a six month (or longer) holdback waiting period before we will release a regular edition to the public.  We will be, if the project funds, allowing others to buy into the Kickstarter pricing and project for a while through our website, essentially as after-funding for those with interest, but that will be cut off as we get production started.  

Those who select options that do not include the Blu-Ray itself your rewards will be shipped as soon as the manufacturing of them is complete.  Those who order options that include the Blu-Ray, your rewards will be shipped along with the product when it is completed.

  

As the licensee, this Kickstarter project is being run by Nozomi Entertainment, the production division of RightStufAnime.com.   Comments, commentary and posts will come from the producers of the show internally, from the cast and crew, and we will also be assisted by Ann Yamamoto of Pied Piper, who we have worked with on other Kickstarter projects, including Time of Eve and Skip Beat!   You'll see our special begging appeal from the President and Dark Lord of Right Stuf as part of the kick-off video as well.  

Yes, we will include both the new English Dubbed version as well as the Japanese with English subtitled version on the disc when created.  Please note the Blu-Ray disc will be Region A only.  Note that when watching the Japanese version, the subtitles will not be possible to turn off; this is a licensing requirement that we cannot change.

 

Risks and challenges

Nozomi Entertainment is a division of Right Stuf, Inc. We’ve been producing and selling anime since 1987. In the past (Pre-Kickstarter) we completed the industry’s first crowdsourcing project when we produced and created our first DVD project for Irresponsible Captain Tylor back in 1994. We also produce monthly releases of anime, most recently titles from the Gundam Franchise, Junjo Romantica, Revolutionary Girl Utena, and many more.

We have selected a studio to work with in order to complete the dubbing process, but availability for actors and the director could cause some delays. This studio and those involved all have experience in working on anime. In addition, should we reach stretch goals, it may take longer for us to produce the title and get it to the backers. All other production work will be completed in-house.

We already have all of the source materials required in order to do this production, and have the approval to do this Kickstarter project from the production committee. However, the project could be delayed due to the need to have certain approvals, especially for merchandise items, that are required. We’ll document in the ongoing project updates how the production and approval process works to be transparent about its status.

We may ask supporters to vote or help make decisions on certain items, which could also add time to the project and the fulfillment of rewards, only in that it may take longer to complete the work.

Should the project not fund we might not receive permission to create similar projects in the future. Should we not make the super-stretch goals for additional seasons but make the regular goal, we might create a different project for those other seasons or may simply release them in HD without an English track.

We have fulfilled many Kickstarter projects for other companies, and one of our main business divisions does order fulfillment every day, so we do not anticipate any issues with getting materials to customers once the project is complete.
