Japan Voice Talent Announced for Kick-heart

Main Voice Actors in Japan Announced

Today at an event that took place in Tachikawa celebrating Production I.G's 25th Anniversary, we announced our main Japanese voice actors that have been selected for Kick-heart.

Maskman M (Romeo)......Tatsuhisa Suzuki
Lady S (Juliet)..................Takako Honda

We also showed a work-in-progress cut of the film at the event in Tachikawa.

After Recording (AR) Session

Also, we thought you might like to see some video of one of our recording sessions. Maki Terashima-Furuta shot this video during a recent trip to Japan. In Japan, dialogue is recorded after the animation is near complete, hence the name "AR" of "After Recording". Please see below:

Amazon Payment Issues

A small percentage of our backer's payments did not go through properly and were rejected for some reason or another ( incorrect billing address, expired cards etc). If you did not receive a confirmation email from Amazon, would you mind checking your account to make sure it went through properly? The subject of the email from Amazon should read: "Your Payment to Production I.G, LLC has succeeded." For most of you it should be fine, but we just wanted to alert our backers just in case they were not aware.

Production Update

Yuasa-san and the entire Kick-heart staff is hard at work finishing the film. We will be starting to send out surveys soon to collection the necessary information for shipping the rewards to our backers. Thanks again to all of the backers who made this possible.

Best,

Team Kick-heart

      What happens if you pay on Kickstarter and Paypal (a month later after the fund raising on Kickstarter ended)

      Now I'm much more impatient to watch it since Takako Honda joined in. Thanks for the update.

      Thanks for the preview. I have only read how voice recording sessions are like a choreography where the cast plans which microphone to use and how silently they move around them, like ninjas. Would love to see more of it.

      @romanticide - No worries! It happens to all of us :)
      @daniel - Glad to hear you like it!

      I am ashamed to confess but I am one of the accounts that bounced as I forgot to update the information of my credit card :( I did fix it the same day the campaign ended and it passed throught the way it should have on the first place. Sorry... :(
