Bubblegum Crisis Blu-ray Kickstarter Ends

Screen Shot 2013-11-25 at 5.50.43 AMAnimeigo’s kickstarter drive to release the classic anime OAV Bubblegum Crisis on Blu-ray ended last night.

The final pledge count came in at $154, 014, more than double the initial goal of $75,000.  Additionally, Animeigo president Robert Woodhead said in an e-mail to supporters that paypal donations had pushed the total over $160,000; that’s enough to meet a stretch goal set by Woodhead, which means he’ll now personally pay for the authoring and mastering of a third BD-50 disc, allowing the company to spread the eight episodes out across more discs, maximize bit-rates, and add new features.
