Hello Everyone! Hisui and Narutaki here. We finally made it to the 4th round of the Aniblog Tourney! As promised, at every level of the tournament we will reveal something amazing. Now that we made it this far, we can unveil the secret project we have been working on behind the scenes for quite a while. It has been over a year of negations to get this all in place but we are now starting a most unusual Kickstarter with the latest bracket of the competition. The question is what are we raising money for?
The Reverse Thieves anime! That’s right. The dream of an anime based on the blog is finally close to a reality.
Conventional wisdom says that you can’t just call up Japan and get them to make an anime for you. While this is usually true, it is not necessarily a hard and fast rule if you have the right connections. Thankfully after working on the blog for almost five years we were able to make a deal to get the story of the Reverse Thieves made into an anime by studio Madhouse.
Through various contacts at Otakon, we were able to pitch our origin story (which we presented to you all in the last round of the Aniblog Tourney) to Masao Maruyama. And he loved it. Since then we have been in correspondence about the project. All the details are not set in stone but we finally have the authorization to talk about some of the things planned for the project.
