WORLD END ECONOMiCA Kickstarter Launched

» News, Industry, Anime | posted by Brian on 06/15/2014 [Discuss]

Japanese kickstarters are somewhat rare.  We’ve seen stuff like Kick Heart (which premiered at last year’s Anime Expo) and Little Witch Academia 2 be wildly successful.  Smaller things like JH Kagaku’s Akiba Anime Art magazine and Lunatic Joker’s Moero Headphone reader 2013 (English version) have also popped up.  This time around we have WORLD END ECONOMiCA, a visual novel trilogy written by Isuna Hasekura and created by the group Spicy Tails.  Hasekura is most well known for his stories that both capture the heart with its characters and the mind with interspersed economic elements.  WORLD END ECONOMiCA is set in a world where the Earth has colonized the moon and follows a boy named Haru on his journey to go where no man has gone before.
