Hi everyone, it's BocchiP!
About 5 weeks have passed since the crowdfunding campaign has ended. Thanks again to everyone for all your support in backing us! Through Kickstarter and Campfire, we were able to raise over 18,000,000 Yen (~$159,849.05 USD) through 1,662 backers all over the world!
It feels like we're finally at the starting line of that grand objective.
Once again, to everyone who's supported us from this very beginning, we couldn't thank you all enough!
Here, we have some messages from the main production staff!
① Message from the main production staff:
