      Mission Accomplished! I was just wondering if this new bit is considered the 2nd episode as promised as a reward or is the 2nd part of episode one as it is described in the update? As backers can we expect anything else?

    2. Creator Peter Hyoguchi on October 1, 2014

      Ed - you're welcome. What items did you not receive? Please email me at with that info and your address. Thanks.

      Ed - you're welcome. What items did you not receive? Please email me at with that info and your address. Thanks.

    4. Creator Ed Pope on October 1, 2014

      Well, that was better. It left me wanting more, unlike the first episode.

      Thank you so much for finally getting this to us.

      Still wondering about the items that I was supposed to get.

    5. Creator Ed Pope on September 28, 2014

      BTW, what happened to the free download that you prmised from Nothing here again.

      Yes this is ridiculous, so many promises made with no follow through. Why in the heck would anyone trust you any longer?

    6. Creator Ed Pope on September 28, 2014

      Heck, other than the T-Shirt that I received. I have received nothing else. You guys really did not have it together when you did this. I wonder how many people have received their goods for donating?

      I received the T-Shirt and that has been it. I wish I had never donated to this failed project.

    7. Creator Ed Pope on September 28, 2014

      I hate to be hard on you, but nothing since April is very sad. Obviously there are many people involved, but this project is not moving at all. People believed in you, But, you are letting us down.

      At least give us monthly updates.. SOMETHING...

      Almost done, with the money that you received from us I guess. Sad, looks like another Kickstarter that was not worthy of the effort of the people who placed their faith in you and your endeavor.

    8. Creator Peter Hyoguchi on April 6, 2014

      I'm glad you guys enjoyed episode one! Episode two is almost done! I appreciate your patience. I do want to remind everyone that to accomplish the kind of visuals that we brought forward on episode one, it takes hundreds of artists and usually costs at least $1 million per minute. Episode one is 12 minutes. Episode two will be about the same length.

      Thankfully we have many artists still volunteering on this labor of love.

      Stay tuned!

    9. Creator Ed Pope on April 6, 2014

      Cannot help but notice that there has been no action on this since Aug of 2013. 8 months and no new info or episodes. So, when are you guys going to prove me wrong? All you did was waste everyone's money. You are the reason why people don't trust kickstarter any longer.

    10. Creator Matthieu Perrelle on January 9, 2013

      Got my LA poster from the post office yesterday and wanted to thank you guys for that :)
      Looking forward to episode 2!!

    11. Creator Øivind Rosvold on December 9, 2012

      Very cool first episode, love the music and the atmosphere, can't wait to get to know the characters more :D

    12. Creator Peter Hyoguchi on December 9, 2012

      Thanks, Frank! Episode 2 is even better!

    13. Creator Frank Silas on December 9, 2012

      That link is not working. Just goes to a blank upload page.

    15. Creator Øivind Rosvold on November 27, 2012

      Thanks for the quick response :)

    16. Creator Peter Hyoguchi on November 26, 2012

      Patience please! We're working round the clock to finish. You'll get your poster soon :)


    17. Creator Øivind Rosvold on November 26, 2012

      Hi, i see that the estimated delivery for the Limited Addition poster was August 2012, any news on shipping? i have not gotten an answer when i directly sent Peter Hyoguchi a message. Really looking forward to the episodes, just wanted to see if there is a date for the shipping part as i am about to move ^^ Thanks for any answer.

    18. Creator Brent Bushnell on November 21, 2012

      So excited for this guys! Nice work. The teaser looks awesome. Who is the artist of the rap song in the beginning of the Kickstarter video? Sounds a little like Justice? Thanks!

    19. Creator Peter Hyoguchi on November 9, 2012

      Dear New Kinders! We are SO CLOSE to bringing you Episode One of The New Kind. We're working around the clock to bring you an amazing show! ^_^

    20. Creator Ed Pope on November 9, 2012

      So does anyone have an up to date status on this? Or has this become another KickScam?

    21. Creator Tyler Miller on March 20, 2012

    22. Creator Cameron Mulder on March 19, 2012

      ¡Felicitaciones amigos!

      I'm waiting for the two first episodes and a full article about your first victory...

      Anyway, I have a question for you: who save the project by giving almost half of the pledge at the very end?

    29. Creator Mikael Olofsson (deleted) on March 17, 2012

      Congratulation. I'm really looking forward to the first episode...

    30. Creator Dottie Zold on March 16, 2012

    32. Creator RMP on March 13, 2012

      Hope you're right Peter. I wish this project would get more coverage.

    33. Creator Peter Hyoguchi on March 13, 2012

      If we don't get our goal by Friday, all the money is refunded. But we'll get our goal!

    34. Creator Nelson Suniaga Romero on March 13, 2012

      What will happen with the project (and the money) if you can't get $100.000 by March 17th? Everything goes to the trash can?

    35. Creator Mikael Olofsson (deleted) on March 12, 2012

      I would, unfortunately I don't use facebook, twitter or any other similar services

    36. Creator Peter Hyoguchi on March 12, 2012

      I agree, Mikael! Please help!

    37. Creator Mikael Olofsson (deleted) on March 12, 2012

      This project needs more coverage in media/ social networks

    38. Creator Jason Schock on March 11, 2012

      Any word on that article?

    39. Creator Peter Hyoguchi on February 29, 2012

      Hey New Kinders - please post The New Kind Kickstarter page on your Facebook wall. It really helps get the word out. Most backers of TNK are coming from Facebook. So blast away!


    40. Creator Mikael Olofsson (deleted) on February 27, 2012

      I really like the story and hope you get this project funded, I hope you are talking to various film sites about this project
