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.

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

That moment when the crowdfunding must take place for an anime adaptation.

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.

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.

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.

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.
