The People Behind Red Ash Are Crowdfunding Yet Again

The People Behind Red Ash Are Crowdfunding Yet Again

After last month’s disastrous game and successful anime Kickstarter campaigns, the people behind Red Ash are asking for even more of fans’ money — this time to extend the anime from 12 minutes to 30. You can’t make this stuff up.

This time, they’re using not Kickstarter but a facsimile of the popular crowdfunding service, using the Studio 4C website to try to raise another $US127,118 from fans. That’s on top of the $US162,882 they earned last month for the Red Ash anime, which will accompany a video game of the same name. Studio 4C, the anime house making this film alongside producer Keiji Inafune and his company Comcept, says the film will be out in July of 2017.

Last month, as you might remember, Inafune and Comcept fell well short of their Kickstarter goal for this Mega Man Legends successor, but in the final days they announced that they’d partnered with a Chinese company called Fuze to make the game happen anyway. Maybe they will find a different company to pump even more money into the anime too? Or maybe they will start another Kickstarter.

Inafune’s spiritual successor to Mega Man, Mighty No. 9, was crowdfunded in 2013. In early August it was delayed to early 2016.
