"Let's turn NEKOPARA into an anime with everyone's support!
NEKOPARA is a visual novel series about living together with humanoid cats, designed and created by Sayori, an illustrator living in Japan.
Originally, Sayori created the VNs with the simple dream of seeing the doujinshis she had written come to life, but so many people read and loved NEKOPARA's cute characters, story, and charm. As a result, NEKOPARA has achieved popularity with fans worldwide!
This project embodies another dream: to turn the series into an anime with the help of all you fans out there!
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!
The NEKOPARA OVA will be based on NEKOPARA Vol. 1's storyline while adding in many original elements specific to this new production. Enjoy exciting new antics and reminisce on nostalgic moments from the visual novel with the nekos of La Soliel!"
"Greetings! My name is Mary Cagle, and I'm the creator of the webcomic Let's Speak English.
Let's Speak English is an autobio comic about the 2.5 years I spent teaching English to elementary students in the rural town of Kurihara, Japan.
The original webcomic was hand-drawn and published online at Marycagle.com during my stay as a teacher, and covers all kinds of topics — from dealing with language barriers to learning how to be an adult. The strip naturally ended with my return to America, and I'm finally ready to assemble my journey as a book.
I had an amazing time in Japan with all my adorable students, but creating comics has always been my passion. Now that I'm back in the US, I'm making the transition to full-time comics work! This book will be one of my first big steps as a professional comic creator.
So here it is, the 100-page(ish) softcover book of Let's Speak English!"

"Grimoire is a dark, story-driven, mature 2D animated series, following the lives of 3 girls, Vera, Nina, and Lisa, whose lives were forever changed when they were entangled in unfortunate supernatural events. The three struggle to learn to live with the effects of these tragedies on their lives as they try to find their places in the world and fight to maintain their sanity, the one thing they have in common eventually drawing them together against a greater evil.
Our goal for Grimoire is to fund the cost of production for the first 8 episodes; we've taken all development and pre-production into our own hands, and as a result, if we are successfully funded, we can start immediately with production on the show, with animation starting at the beginning of 2017 and episodes coming out within a few months. Whereas many projects aim to fund the creation of a pilot with the intention to pitch it to a larger corporation, sometimes even successful pilots never see a full series because of networks; since we are producing Grimoire independently online, if we succeed, 8 episodes of guaranteed content around 20 minutes each will already be in progress, and you'll be able to see the results as early as spring of 2017!
Usually if you want story-driven mature animation you have to turn to anime. We're enamored with animation as an art form and want to see it do more, and to show that there is a desire and appreciation for more story-driven adult animation."

"America's most wanted secret. The TPP is a multi-trillion dollar international treaty that is being negotiated in secret by the US, Australia, Canada, Japan, Mexico and others. This massive agreement has 29 chapters, of which 26 are still secret. It covers 40% of global GDP and is the largest agreement of its kind in history. The treaty aims to create a new international legal regime that will allow transnational corporations to bypass domestic courts, evade environmental protections, police the internet on behalf of the content industry, limit the availability of affordable generic medicines, and drastically curtail each country's legislative sovereignty. US Senator Elizabeth Warren has said "[They] can’t make this deal public because if the American people saw what was in it, they would be opposed to it." Over the last two years WikiLeaks has published three chapters of this super-secret global deal, despite unprecedented efforts by negotiating governments to keep it under wraps. The remaining 26 chapters of the deal are closely held by negotiators and the big corporations that have been given privileged access. The TPP is also noteworthy as the icebreaker agreement for the proposed 'T-treaty triad' of TPP-TISA-TTIP which would see TPP style rules placed on 53 nations, 1.6 billion people and 2/3rds of the global economy."

"A state-operated facility that allows one to communicate with the deceased: the Connect Center"
Year 2030. With Japan's recent advancements in information science and neuroscience, human memories can now be saved and recorded. The technology is referred to as "e-Memory."
However, due to the rapid increase in the number of crimes using the e-Memory technology, the government has introduced strict regulations on human memory data.
In essence, the government now holds a monopoly on all human memory data.
The recording of still-living humans was forbidden, and the e-Memory technology was only to be used on the deceased, giving rise to the establishment of "Connect Centers." These state-owned and operated facilities allowed one to call and communicate with the dead.
These "Connect Centers" allowed people who were still in a period of bereavement to cope with their loss by talking with their recently deceased loved ones.
The protagonist, Kusuhara Hiroki, is a college student struggling with suicidal impulses after the sudden passing of his close childhood friend, Mizunashi Sorano.
Her memories were to last only until August 26—a mere four more days. Kusuhara teams up with his friend, Amamiya Kakeru, in an attempt to steal Mizunashi Sorano's memories from the server where they were stored.
In the midst of this, the two discover the secret of the Connect Centers, and are suddenly embroiled in the fight taking place behind the scenes."

"Brilliant Shadows is the tale of two best friends, a necromancer and a paladin, who knew they were destined to be together... right?
Now that we are on the final stretch of Brilliant Shadows, we're looking for a bit of funding to purchase music and finish up the last bit of art for the game.
Overall, there is an astounding lack of variety and diversity in the world of mainstream gaming. Gender, race, and sexuality are often not present in modern games or eroticized when they are.
Brilliant Shadows will attempt to break this paradigm by featuring a lesbian protagonist along with a slew of supporting characters that run the gamut in terms of both ethnicity and sexual orientation. "

"Starlight Vega is a fantasy comedy visual novel (an interactive fiction game) with GirlxGirl romances.
The first night exploring the upstairs study in her grandfather's old house, Aria accidentally frees a flirtatious demon girl named Lyria, who spent the past 50 years in a stone. The two become attached via a "Lifestone", which means Aria can't go far from Lyria, and vice versa. This gets quite awkward when Aria tries to go about (what's left of) her daily life.
To complicate things, the book she and her friend Melody also found that night seems to have ancient magic. Melody offers to see if the book can separate the link, however it isn't exactly in English, and the demon girl isn't keen on helping. Lyria's smart-mouthed servant, Sid, soon shows up, apparently having been searching for his Master in the human realm. Aria begrudgingly agrees to let the duo stay in her home.
Will Aria get caught up in Lyria's flirtatious behavior… or wonder if she has an ulterior motive? Will she stay friends with Melody or become something more?
"Starlight Vega" is an interactive story-based fiction available on PC, Mac, and Linux. Six different endings are obtainable through your choices made throughout the game."

Watching the epic story of America's worst financial crisis unfold will be fascinating.
We are working together with acclaimed Canadian illustrator Paul Rivoche who illustrated Amity Shlaes' graphic novel about the Great Depression The Forgotten Man.
He drew the branding image for our film. And the more money we raise, the more of Rivoche's great illustrations and animations we can add to the film.
The real cause of the financial crisis is not what most people — and perhaps you — think it is.
Government and most of the media blamed the financial crisis on the financial industry and in the end on the free market system itself.
But the diagnosis is wrong: Although banks made lots of bad mistakes, they did not cause the financial crisis.
It was government affordable-housing policy — CRA regulations, HUD, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — that caused the crisis.
And because the diagnosis is wrong, the prescription is wrong — the cure is worse than the disease.
The Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 doubles down on the old, disastrous policies.
Dodd-Frank is poison for the American economy: the American economy will never be the same.
A tremendously powerful new agency has been created: the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It is unaccountable, has no oversight and is not dependent on Congress for funds.
And it's in the process of degrading the credit scoring system that protects Americans from undue risk.
The Obama administration is shaking down banks and is forcing them into settlements that will pay out huge amounts of money to favored activist groups — the same groups which had fought so successfully for the risky loans that caused the crisis.
The Obama administration is not letting the financial crisis go to waste: they are using it to justify lawless policies that are leading America into the next — and even greater — crisis."
The Enemies Within zooms in on the best kept secret of modern politics. Almost no one is aware of the fact that fewer than 20,000 U.S. communists, socialists and extreme progressives are able to influence the politicians, and even write the laws that control the lives of over 300 million Americans.
What We Need
We need a minimum of $100,000 to get us started and we will get some folks to match funds. Our full budget is $400,000. This production will take about 1 year from start to completion. It will take thousands of man hours for research, filming, and distribution.
Your contribution will allow us to dedicate a full year into making a high quality film that will change minds and motivate people to get involved and take this country back from the left.
