Funding Goal Breakdown:

Here's the funding breakdown as you can see in the chart above. The money will be mostly spent on illustrations and shipping. But the printing will also take up a significant amount too. With over 14 Illustration and 230+ pages, the book is heavier than our last light novels, thus there is an increased price and shipping cost. At Push Publication, we believe you, our backers should have clear idea where the funding is going to be spent on as this will bring you closer to us, as a team and will ensure your direct participation with us in this project.

Mini Rewards:

There are 3 Mini Rewards with some specific goals! The Rewards will unlock as soon as the goals are reached. There's no time limit on this one! Check FAQs section to learn how to share and retweet.

Risks and challenges
