Hired as a nurse for cyborgs, Angel finds herself thrown into explosive mech battles and a cyborg family gang war

About this project

  • Summary: It’s about a girl without any super powers being forced to face a family of crazy cyborgs with mechs and all sorts of weapons that want to kill each other. Not only does she need to survive, but she will also have to help bring them something they’ve been missing, peace.

In-depth story

Angel, our main heroine got hired by an abnormal family company made up of rich and powerful cyborgs to be their personal nurse. She quickly realizes the unusually high tension between the family members. All her boss Lien can care about is how to kill his brother Kolei, and take his father Seon's life. 

Their father Seon isn't anything normal either: His goal is to turn all his cyborg sons into ultimate weapons to conquer the world. He constantly creates incentives to get his sons to fight one another as means to improve their designs. 

Angel has a tough task to prevent Lien and Kolei from killing each other while trying to convince Seon this is all a very bad idea.

 E-Depth Angel began as a webcomic in 2004, it has since grown to 7 volumes totaling 800 plus full color pages, and the comic is still going strong. In 2010 the dream to turn the comic into an animation came to life with the creation of an opening sequence. This couldn't have been accomplished without the amazing team and fan base supporting it! With your support, E-depth will have more than just an opening animation but an actual episode!

 We have tried to raise funds on our own and use our spare time to work on the project. Morever, we also learned that unless we have sufficient funds, our staff just simply can't work on the project with enough efficiency due to life demands. In order to finish this project, we need your support! 

Our Goal for the production

 What we are asking is only enough for our minimum goal to make a half-episode! We hope to really make an awesome anime with your help, to go above and beyond what we can achieve if we are only on our own. 

When we reach our stretch goal we will be able to make a full episode!

About the E-depth Angel GAME:  

It’s a Choose your adventure mystery solving Visual novel project that I am already working on. In the game, Angel will explore the true and false memories of all the characters and try to help them resolve issues and find out the true cause of death for Lien Lei’s mother. However if she chose wrongly, there can be unhappy consequences. (I will leave it at that…) Romance aspect is also part of the game. 

There will be several endings to the story, an aspect of storytelling both the anime, and comics can not provide, but fun to write for writers. The game is scheduled to complete in roughly another 3-4 months.

Risks and challenges

We are a small independent team, this means it will be tough for the production to find fast replacement when one of our key staff members has delays due to sickness, family needs, long trip away, and so on. Thus delays will likely be a problem in our production.

Other than that, we always make sure we deliver the goods and keep a good record of who ordered what. (unless we are not able to find the backer)
We also plan on using some tools to help us with post-kickstarter management to shorten and minimize this problem.
