New Stretch Goals Announced!

We are pleased to announce two new stretch goals!

It's amazing-- Almost 5 days in and have already reached 44% of our goal with around 831 backers. We didn't expect to get that far so quickly.

We can't thank all of you enough for your support you have shown so far and are truly grateful. We still have a little ways to go, so we would like to add some new stretch goals.

Stretch Goal #1: Kick-heart Companion Short

$400,000 = Kick-heart Companion Short Film (10 minutes)

If we can reach $400,000, We will create a 10 minute companion Kick-Heart short film. That's a total of 20 minutes of animation! Every backer who pledged above $15 would be elegible to receive this award.

  • [ The Monkey Flip ] - 480p upgraded to 720p
  • [ The Pumphandle Drop ] and above - 720p upgraded to 1080p

Stretch Goal #2: Kick-heart Feature Film

$1,000,000 = Kick-heart Feature film

If we are able to reach a goal of $1,000,000, Production I.G will create a Kick-Heart feature film.  This is a very ambitious goal, but if fans really want to make a crowd-funded feature animated film, we thought we would provide the option. Every backer who pledged above $15 would be elegible to receive this award.

  • [ The Monkey Flip ] - 480p upgraded to 720p
  • [ The Pumphandle Drop ] and above - 720p upgraded to 1080p

Adjusted Delivery
Please note that if we do hit either of these stretch goals, we will need to adjust the delivery date.  We will notify backers as soon as we determine the new production schedule based on the funds raised. Also, these extra funds will go directly into the production budget of the project.

      These are ambitious stretch goals: I doubt we'll get enough to realize everything , but I appreciate the faith you have in your loyal fans and the anime community in general.

      It would be so amazing if you guys could raise enough funds through crowdfunding to make an animated feature film.
