NEKO WORKS, the people behind the Nekopara series of catgirl-centric visual novels, have revealed the details behind their Nekopara OVA Kickstarter.
[UPDATE] 1/21/2017] The official preview video, first revealed during Comiket 91, for the Nekopara OVA has been uploaded to NEKO WORKS’ YouTube channel and you can view it below.
The insert song of the preview is called Baby→Lady LOVE and performed by singer Ray. The animation was produced by FelixFilm.
[UPDATE 1/11/2017] The Nekopara OVA Kickstarter has been funded in mere hours reaching their set goal of $100,000. As of the 11th of January, the Kickstarter has managed to crowdfund over half a million dollars, meaning the final length of the OVA episode will be 60 minutes. Previously the Kickstarter page has also been updated with information clarifying a mistake regarding Add-on items.
We’re back with a new update on add-ons!
Well, looks like one of our kitties needs to be punished… She made an unfurtunate boo-boo and gave you all some bad information.
Looks like we will not be accepting add-on items direct from Kickstarter as shown previously, but instead only via BackerKit. We’re furry sorry for the mistake and hope you’ll furgive us for our mistake!
But we do have some new info though to hopefully make up for it!
The cat costume will come in various sizes, so if you have a teeny kitty or a huge fluffy kitty, you’ll have various size options to choose from!
As for the cosplay costume, these will be custom made, which is why they’re limited to only 3. So, make sure you’re ready to F5 like crazy!
The last info to share will be regarding shipping for the cosplay costume and the cat costume: for backers above $50, there will be no additional shipping cost if you include an add-on item to your total via BackerKit. However, for anyone who pledges $50 or under, since those are digital-only tiers, there will be an additional shipping cost.
That’s all for today! We’re almost at the $500k ultimate goal to make a 60 minutes OVA! Thanks for your support!
The creators have also stated they will be announcing stretch goals very soon. With almost 30 days remaining, the campaign can still go to greater heights. Stay tuned for more updates. [/UPDATE]
The long-anticipated Kickstarter for the official Nekopara anime is still a few days away, but NEKO WORKs has already revealed significant amounts of information about the anime project. Not only do we see the full design of Kashou, the protagonist of the Nekopara visual novels, for the first time we also get a glimpse of the various tiered rewards that future Kickstarter backers can get for their contributions. For an initial 20-minute episode, the creators are looking for $100,000, but every $100,000 afterward will extend the OVA by 10 minutes to a maximum of $500,000 and 60 minutes.
Please be sure to check out the story details and the anime character designs below.
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!
The Nekopara OVA will be distributed on Steam, along with a few other digital goodies for specific backer tiers. Speaking of the funding tiers, those go all the way up to a whopping $10,000 and include all kinds of merchandise, including a digital artbook, digital OST and OP theme, a BluRay box, physical artbook, a Chocola and Vanilla plush set and much more. Those willing to give $9000 and $10,000 respectively will even be able to design their custom catgirl character that will featured as a background character in the anime.
