Vision of Escaflowne Kickstarter coming to an end!

This is just an update for you guys. The Vision of Escaflowne kickstarter is coming to an end in 3 days so if you guys plan on funding the project now is the time to open your wallets!

There had been some conflict over the Collector’s Edition and Kickstarter Edition goodies, however, Funimation has been doing a good job at answering questions and making the Collector’s Edition exclusive.

Here are the tiers with the movie/series:

  • $30 THE SUN: Get the movie, digital wallpaper, on-disc credit, and a certificate of participation signed by Kazuki Akane (original director) and Funimation CEO Gen Fukunaga
  • $65 THE TOWER: Escaflowne TV series part 1 (ep 1 – 13) in sub and dub, art cards, chipboard box, digital wallpaper, on-disc credit, and a certificate of participation signed by Kazuki Akane (original director) and Funimation CEO Gen Fukunaga
  • $125 THE HIGH PRIESTESS: Escaflowne TV series part 1 + 2 in sub and dub (Kickstarter Edition) and a theatrical sized poster
  • $155 THE MOON: The movie AND Escaflowne TV series part 1 + 2 in sub and dub (Kickstarter Edition) plus a theatrical sized poster
  • $175 THE WORLD: Escaflowne complete series AND the movie in a collector’s edition box set with the sub and dub. A chipboard box, art book, TBA exclusive item, and bonus DVDs of the original dub
  • **$200 THE LOVERS: Imported soundtrack PLUS Escaflowne complete series AND the movie in a collector’s edition box set with the sub and dub. A chipboard box, art book, TBA exclusive item, and bonus DVDs of the original dub. Items from $15 tier also included (digital wallpaper, on-disc credit, and a certificate of participation signed by Kazuki Akane (original director) and Funimation CEO Gen Fukunaga). One of the cast announcements also mentioned this tier includes a poster!

**This is the one I got!


Updates (I copied all of this directly from the Kickstarter Updates):

  • The Vision of Escaflowne television series (part 1) will be upgraded to include a behind-the-scenes special feature with the English cast’s new dub 
  • The Standard Edition of Part 1 will include a rigid chipboard box when purchased through Kickstarter pledge. This box is exclusive to Kickstarter backers at the $65, $125, and $155 levels [Foil Print once $250,000 stretch goal is achieved]
  • Art cards will be upgraded into a saddle-stitched booklet when the $250,000 stretch goal is met [I’m not sure if these are included in the $175+ tiers]
  • Collector’s Edition exclusives:
    • All backers of the $175 and higher tiers will receive an exclusive version of the Collector’s Edition box, now with a specialty effect premium print finish that will not be available to customers who purchase the Collector’s Edition outside of the Kickstarter.
    • We’re also including in a replica set of Hitomi’s tarot cards–again, a special exclusive only available to backers who pledge to get the Collector’s Edition on Kickstarter.
    • We intend to include all of the artwork present in the Kickstarter Exclusive version of Part 1, Part 2, and the Movie in the Collector’s Edition artbook, in addition to a ton of additional pieces

Cast Announcements (New dub will be directed by Sonny Strait):

  • Van Fanel, king of Fanelia and one of our main characters: Aaron Dismuke
  • Hitomi Kanzaki, the girl from the Mystic Moon: Caitlin Glass
  • Merle, catgirl extraordinaire and Van’s #1 follower: Alexis Tipton
  • Allen Schezar, handsome swordsman that makes all the girls swoon: Sonny Strait
