This year the way anime is created has changed. The Kickstarter Kick-Heart managed to gain $201,164 (of a $150,000 goal) with 3,232 backers in total. That is an average of $62 per person!
2012 marks the year of the success of crowd-funded anime.
It feels great to have seen and been a part of this, however silly it may sound.
