NEW: Kickstarter-Exclusive upgrades to Collector's Edition + Hitomi cast announcement!
Big news today on major upgrades to The Vision of Escaflowne - Collector's Edition!
We've heard some requests for more exclusive items in the $175 THE WORLD tier and any higher tiers that include the Collector's Edition, and now the wait is over! We've been working through a lot of different options with our partners every day, and today we're ecstatic to announce not one but TWO major upgrades to The Vision of Escaflowne - Collector's Edition, exclusive only to Kickstarter backers.
All backers of the $175 and higher tiers will receive an exclusive version of the Collector's Edition box, now with a specialty effect premium print finish that will not be available to customers who purchase the Collector's Edition outside of the Kickstarter. This upgrade also applies to the just-restocked $200 THE LOVERS tier (which also includes the soundtrack), now open again to new backers with a higher limit. Our goal with this specialty effect finish is to really make a set that stands out even more on shelf--more details on the packaging and artwork coming soon!
Additionally, we're also including in a replica set of Hitomi's tarot cards--again, a special exclusive only available to backers who pledge to get the Collector's Edition on Kickstarter. These are printed from high quality vectors of the cards from the actual show, provided courtesy of Dybex! Here's a preview of them (box not shown):
We decided to opt for these additions as a straight add-on, rather than as a stretch goal, to thank you for all of your support already!
We're not done yet! As thanks for hitting $220,000 pledged, today we're revealing the voice of Hitomi Kanzaki, heroine and protagonist of The Vision of Escaflowne.
Hitomi will be played by voice actress Caitlin Glass! Caitlin's numerous popular voice acting credits include Winry from Fullmetal Alchemist, Haruhi from Ouran High School Host Club, and Kyoko from Danganronpa, and Petra from Attack on Titan.
Next cast member will be announced when we hit $230,000!
