Want to help realise a sci-fi anime?

A group of anime industry veterans, among which director Masahiro Ando ('Neon Genesis Evangelion', 'Ghost in the Shell', 'Full Metal Alchemist'), have launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund production of 24 minute original sci-fi action anime 'Under the Dog'.

The anime is presented as "...a science fiction action thriller that will explore what it means to live and die well, testing the limits of all we hold dear".

Rewards for backers of the 'Under the Dog' project range from having their name on the project's website, to creating a anime character, attending the Japanese premiere and meeting the anime's creative team in Tokyo.

With almost a month to go, over 1300 fans have already pledged more than USD 87,000 towards its USD 580,000 goal.
