A crowdfunding campaign for an anime adaptation of Imomushi Narita's It's My Life fantasy manga exceeded its initial goal of five million yen (approximately US$46,000) on Friday to produce a three-minute episode with an ending animation. The campaign currently stands at 6.6 million yen with the end goal being an eight-minute episode, which would include both an opening and ending at 15 million yen (approximately US$138,000). Shogakukan launched the campaign on the Makuake website on Sunday last week, and it will end on April 25, 2018.

The story centers on Astra Ludger Doomsday, a 35-year-old former captain of the royal knights who retired early and used his savings to acquire his very own house. However, not long after beginning his peaceful life, a young girl crashes into his house. The girl named Noah, is an apprentice witch, and mistakes Astra for the evil God.

If this doesn't feature at least one Bon Jovi reference I'll be mighty disappointed...

Hopefully they can make it at least a 12 minute series.

Astra Ludger Doomsday: Tetsu Inada (Ojisan to Marshmallow)

when the crowdfunding news came some out some montgs ago he's my top pick to voice Astra.

Antagonized said:

As long as they get a decent staff and not a 3 minute series. I'll settle with that.

Hopefully the crowdfunding succeeds though.

Well fuck.

Okay, 46k in USD should not equal to only 3 min. You got Nekopara who's initial goal was 100k USD, for 20 minutes.

Wait that short? You would think maybe it would try for 24 min. Like a pilot episode and then go from there but this? I hope it succeeds but this is really worrisome. Almost seems like an expensive advertisement for the source material.

Also after watching the PV, it looks really bland O.o

It's a good song, but I don't quite understand how you're supposed to get an anime out of it.

The picture reminds me of Somali to Mori no Kamisama and the synopsis is quite similar too in a way.

I'm not impressed with the PV so I guess I'll just read it.

Look cute but already know this trash content from a mile away. Glad shit can get crowdfunded like this though. Impressive on that feat.

Crowdfunded huh. That's neat. Reminds me of Under the Dog. Hopefully this doesn't turn out like that.

Is it to much to ask that maybe we might get a full tv series after this? if the interest is their maybe they should. it is a good Slice of life series that makes u feel good.

Looks really cute but the setting looks like a generic fantasy. I haven't read the source material but given the low crowdfunding goal, I'm pretty sure this is gonna be a minimalist short. I hope at least it's funny enough to hold my attention.

Honestly, I think if a proper studio can get their hands on this project, they can make it at least into a 1-cour adaptation.

I enjoy reading the manga, but releases take forever to come out. I would absolutely love to see Noa's true identity and power.

Rarely do viewers have a chance to directly effect the fate of an adaptation, and indeed for a studio to put forth the resources needed to make such a work. This sort of crowd funding I would actually put money into.
