October Update

Posted by Robert J Woodhead (Creator)

Dear Backers,

As you may have heard, we had a spot of bother due to Hurricane Florence. We evacuated inland for a week and were able to return around the time power was restored to our neighborhood.

We were very lucky and just lost a lot of trees, with only minor damage to our house. Others were much less fortunate and the cleanup will take many months.

Project Status

We have completed all of the translation, subtitling, and captioning, and are into final proofreading, aka “Punctuation Wars.” Design of the artbook is mostly complete, although we are still waiting for final artwork from Japan. All commentaries have been recorded, and production is complete on the new HD production documentary.

During the production of the new documentary, we had to replicate some "felt marker" colored versions of the settei. We think they turned out pretty nicely, and we're probably going to also include them in the artbook. Here's a few samples...

Going Forward

Natsumi and I are off to Japan in a few weeks for our usual pilgrimage to TIFFCOM. Once we get back in November, we hopefully should have all the materials, and disc authoring will begin!

We'd like to close this update by giving you a headsup about another Kickstarter anime project you might want to check out - Emma, a Victorian Romance.  They've already reached their initial goal and with a little bit of help, they can make it to the final goal and dub both seasons of the show.

As always, thanks for your support
Robert & Natsumi

      @Alex: the main program will have the option to show white "netflix style" SDH captions in addition to the colored subtitles. The commentary subtitles are colored to identify speaker.

      Would it be possible to get an option for plain white subtitles? I find that they don’t clash as much as the blue and yellow ones, and are easier to read than the grayscale ones. (The colors I’m referring to are the recent Bubble Gum Crisis BD).

      @James: we'll do it as soon as we have final designs for all the bonus goodies, so people can make proper goodie selections.

      Will the surveys be sent out when you return or closer to shipment date?
