A Kickstarter campaign launched by Sekai Project has surpassed its initial goal of 100,000 USD. The campaign aims to create a 20-minute OVA based on NEKO WORKs' visual novel series Nekopara. The funds raised currently stands at 273,585 USD, and an extra 10 minutes will be added to the episode for every additional 100,000 USD raised, with the maximum duration of an hour. The campaign, which was launched on December 28, will end on February 10.

Synopsis
What's NEKOPARA? Why, it's a cat paradise! Kashou Minaduki, the son of a long line of Japanese confection makers moved out to open his own shop "La Soleil" as a patisserie. But upon moving out, hidden amongst his things were two of the catgirls, Chocola and Vanilla, that the family had been raising. When he tried to send them back, they begged and pleaded until he gave in, and now they've opened La Soleil together. With two catgirls who really, REALLY love their master trying their very best and occasionally failing—a heartful comedy opens for business!

Can't wait, I like the characters and their design in the VN

It got almost 10 times the original goal. Ten times. Is this really what people want?

Dear Diary,

I've just remembered why I hate people.

PS: I want to die.

The VN is good already.

No mating season +18 content. No donations from me.

Looking forward to seeing Coconut animated.

and atm the amount they've raised is now $443,295 and still has 37 days left.

EDIT- I forgot to say if it gets a dub (I remember somewhere it said if they raised enough they'd maybe make a dub for it as well)

I'll make sure to buy it when it first hits

They raised $400k in 3 days with 39 days to go? I had no idea Nekopara had such a huge fanbase. Like seriously what the fuck though? Imagine everything else that could be done with that $400k.

I mean they are clearly going to reach their max stretch goal of $500k, but then what? with 39 days left to go it isn't impossible for them to get close to a million.

Cat in costume looked amusingly annoyed.

Jan 1, 2017 1:02 AM by gophercg

I'm definitely gonna watch this.

I'll probably throw $100 at this for the limited edition - It's worth it if you enjoy the series. Not so much if you just like anime :^)

I was tempted by the $300 one as you get your name in the ending credits.

The only reason why I made a kickstarter account

<3 Coconut will always be my #1 catgirl

So after what now 2~3days they already got 350.000.000 and with 42days left to reach the max goal of 500.000.000 think its pretty reasonable that we can expect an 1hour OVA, only makes you wonder if this will trigger then any future plans for this series with this huge support that its getting now
