The other day, DMP sent out a survey request to people who have been backing their Tezuka Kickstarter projects asking them about what they wanted from the next lot of Kickstarter campaigns and what they didn’t want in the next few campaigns.
OK, so I’ve written over the last few weeks about DMP and their attempts to capitalise on their initial successes with Swallowing the Earth, Barbara and Unico. They tried to fund one enormous campaign that didn’t succeed even after trying to explain itself further. Finally, after all that, they decided to push reset on their efforts and started with a short Tezuka story, Ludwig B. , so I thought maybe they could learn from it and move on. So when they sent out their email, I thought “hey, great, I’ll fill this out and be as helpful as possible!”
Showing that you can learn from your mistakes, Digital Manga Publishing is back with another Tezuka kickstarter project. The previous one ended in fire, just as myself and a lot of other people predicted it would. Looking for $380, 000, they barely scraped together under $27k. We went to town on them over the problems with the amount required, the tier problems and well, dammit, everything. See the link for particulars. So when DMP launched their next Kickstarter for the two volume biopic of famed German composer Ludwig Van Beethoven, titled Ludwig B., I was surprised. Check out their campaign video with its more modest goal of $21,000 and I’ll join you after the jump.
Before we begin the review for A Bride’s Story vol.2, if you would like a better grasp of the book’s characters and it’s setting, please read my review of volume one. For returning readers, thrills and adventure abound!
Today we tackle the awesome Cyber City Odeo 808. Today we have Michael from Prede’s Anime Reviews helping review my favourite Yoshiaki Kawajiri OVA. Check out my review of the show on Anigamers and Michael’s take on the title on his blog. Apologies for the audio problems. Also, if you feel like cringing, listen to my original podcast about it, all those years ago.
And with that, the Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service MMF comes to an end. I can’t tell you how nervous I was hosting this and how much I worried that I wouldn’t be able to finish it. But with, as the saying goes, hard work and guts, we pulled it off. I wish to thank everyone who contributed to it and who give of their time and writing skills to make this the success it is.
If you’ve just started reading this month’s MMF then I would suggest reading my brief overview of the series beforehand as I explain the setup of the books. Also, if you’d like more information on volumes 1-4 or 5-8, please see my reviews of them.
