Due to the success of "Little Witch Academia," Japanese anime company Studio Trigger is looking to Kickstarter to fund "Little Witch Academia 2."
Studio Trigger, as part of Japan's Anime Mirai Young Animator Project, produced a twenty-minute anime short film called “Little Witch Academia.” The film short focuses on a young witch named Akko who entered into an all-girl magic school. She wants to become like her idol Shiny Chariot. When you produce good results, those that receive your project or work of art desire more. Studio Trigger, wanting to create “Little Witch Academia 2,” launched a Kickstarter project to procure the necessary funding to make it happen. Also, this short will be extended by 15 minutes.
In the Kickstarter video, the crew behind Little Witch Academia (along with Studio Trigger's founder) are shown. They explain that Little Witch Academia was very popular with over 600K views on YouTube. While they talked about the last short, they wanted to extend the time of the short to add more scenes. The more funding they get, the more stuff and time can be added to the short.
So far, Studio Trigger has raised more than their $150K goal. At the moment, with 29 more days to go, Studio Trigger has raised almost $240K. With that said, fans of Little Witch Academia can more than look forward to Little Witch Academia 2. What's in store for that short? One will have to wait until production is finished.
