Hello everyone,

We are steadily heading towards our goal thanks to all of you. Yuasa-san and the rest of the team is hard at work animating shots for the film. They are so grateful to all of the fans who have shown their support of this project.

As a reminder, we would greatly appreciate your help in getting the word out about this project so that we can keep up our momentum. Every tweet, post or status update really goes a long way in helping us reach our goal. We have only 20 days left and still have a little ways to go.

Also feel free to leave any feedback or questions in our comment section and we will try our best to get back to you in a timely manner. We want to make this a very collaborative experience where the fans can get involved.

Thanks,

Team Kick-heart
