The Kickstarter for a Nekopara anime has passed $425,000 in it’s first six days.
On 28th December a Kickstarter began for an OVA episode of the popular visual novel Nekopara. The initial target of $100,000 for a 20 minute episode was reached very quickly, with the figure at the end of the day reaching almost $300,000.
The Kickstarter, which is being managed on behalf of NekoWorks by Sekai Project, states that for every extra $100,000 raised up to $500,000, ten minutes will be added to the anime.
The current figure, which stands at over $425,000, guarantees a 50 minute episode. Given how quickly this total has been reached however, it seems unlikely the project won’t go onto to reach it’s final stretch goal of $500,000 before it closes on the 11th February.
The episode is reported to focus on the story line of volume 1 of the visual novel with original aspects added for the anime.
An initial staff list has been announced though it is still unclear if the OVA will be passed out to an animation studio or kept in house at NekoWorks.
Nekopara is an adult visual with two volumes and a fandisc (all of which are available as an all ages version on Steam) with a third volume slated for release on the 28th April.
