I decided to bite the bullet and go for the $250 set to get all of them on BD. I currently don't own any physical copies of any Dirty Pair release, so I figured it was worth it. I watched it all long ago back when Amazon owned the digital rights to the series.
Yes, I figured that if I wait for the retail release on Rightstuf there each season, OVA, feature, etc will probably be separate releases. Adding up the cost of all of the parts, plus shipping and import taxes, it will probably be higher than Kickstarter amount.Probably best to do it that way since you're overseas, you'll get everything in just one shipment that way, without multiple VAT and other fees if you were to wait for the retail releases for the OVA and Features from Rightstuf after the Kickstarter is over.
That's certainly an impressive amount for so few backers. On average more than $220 per person.
I think the biggest to date that I've been involved with was the Nekopara OVA Kickstarter, which raised $963,376 by 9122 people. If I recall correctly I backed at the $800 tier.That's because the Kickstarter included all of Dirty pair - the entire series, OVAs, and Features in an exclusive art box-within-a-box for a pledge tier of $250. You could also get the art box with the $135 tier, but only with the series itself, and you would then have to buy the other sets to fill the box either during the slacker-backer or at retail from Rightstuf 6 months after the Kickstater shipped out to the backers.
And, 3301 backers is actually a substantial number for an anime Kickstarter - I've pledged in 15 anime Kickstarters since 2013, and this one has the most backers and highest total dollars except for Under the Dog (the only one creating a new anime from scratch). Gunsmith Cats also had more backers. Only Nozomi's Aria Kickstarter had a higher average pledge, by just $3.52. For my own future reference, I took the time to create a list of all the anime Kickstarters I participated in, showing the Number of Backers, Total Pledge $$, and Average Pledge $$ for each one:
