Creamy Mami is actually a fun series. Super magical girl series owes a lot to it.

Crowdfunding campaign for 13-episode set opened today

The crowdfunding and streaming service Anime Sols announced on Sunday it is taking pledges for the first DVD set of the classic shoujo television anime of Dear Brother (Oniisama E…). The site is currently streaming the first episode.

Based on Riyoko Ikeda’s (The Rose of Versailles) original manga, the story follows Nanako Misono after she enters an all-girls private school. Nanako writes letters about her day-to-day life to her “oniisama,” a previous teacher from her cram school. A middle-class girl, Nanako encounters hardships and drama at the prestigious school of female elites.

The series ran for 39 episodes and is also available for streaming on Hulu and Viki services. It has not previously been released on home video in North America. AnimeSols set US$13,000 goal to release the first 13 episodes on home video. The series has until November 9 to reach its goal.

AnimeSols’ campaigns for the first 13 episodes of Black Jack and Creamy Mami were reached last month.

Someday they’ll get something that I’ve heard of and am interested in seeing released. Or maybe they’ll be the fledgling anime company that doesn’t–glares at Discotek–ruin releases with horrible physical packaging. I’d consider supporting them if either should become true, now that I’ve finally (groan) subjected myself to Kickstarter for the 2033 deal.

1st DVD set successfully funded earlier this month

Anime Sols reached its crowdfunding goal of US$13,000 for the second North American DVD set release of the Dear Brother (Oniisama E…) shojo drama anime on Saturday. The set got a boost over the holiday weekend. The site held a Black Friday sale through Sunday, with all pledges automatically worth double towards the goal.

As of press time, Black Jack set 2, Creamy Mami set 3, Hurricane Polymar, and Tezuka’s 24-hour are also still accepting funding pledges.

Based on Riyoko Ikeda’s (The Rose of Versailles) original manga, the Dear Brother anime follows Nanako Misono after she enters an all-girls private school. Nanako writes letters about her day-to-day life to her “oniisama,” a previous teacher from her cram school. A middle-class girl, Nanako encounters hardships and drama at the prestigious school of female elites.

The series ran for 39 episodes and is also available for streaming on Hulu and Viki services. The first DVD set was successfully funded earlier this month. It has not previously been released on home video in North America.

Anime Sols reached the goal for the first Creamy Mami set in September, followed by the second set this month. The site has also successfully funded the first DVD box set of the Black Jack anime television series.

[size=20]Anime Sols Raises Funds to Translate Tezuka Productions’ Drawing Book[/size]
posted on 2013-12-23 22:59 EST

Anime Sols launched two campaigns on Sunday to fund The Basics of Animation Drawing: Let’s Study with Tezuka Osamu Characters! book and fair-trade Tezuka merchandise made in developing areas of South Asia.

The Basics of Animation Drawing needs to raise US$4,000 by March 18 or gain 200 individual pledges. The project will translate a book covering animation techniques aimed at beginning animators. Originally published in Japan in 2006, the book is 158 pages with 268 visual points to explain the fundamentals of animation techniques.

The “Message from Tezuka Osamu” merchandise needs to raise US$5,000 by March 18. Tezuka Productions is looking to foster stable employment opportunities in developing areas of Nepal and Bangladesh by producing fair-trade goods. The goods are printed with one of four messages from Tezuka’s Save Our Fragile Earth manga. Products include tote bags, notepads, memo pads, stationary sets, and woodcut stamps and feature characters from Tezuka’s Jungle Emperor Leo, Black Jack, Phoenix and Astro Boy series.

Anime Sols successfully funded two Black Jack sets, three Creamy Mami sets, and two DVD box sets of Dear Brother.
