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.
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!
