Jumping into thread. So I've pledged for the full series ($250 tier) and added the lamp. I'm not sure I will do the artbook as I'm not to bothered about those myself usually, maybe in the slacker backer campaign. I agree with earlier posts that it would be nice to have the show plus OVAs/Flash etc as it's own tier.

Well, with less than 24 hours left, they are getting excited over at this project, sending three updates in last 24 hours! Just $4,000 needed for their final stretch goal, so I suppose they have reason to be (a gentle hint for anyone considering joining in).

Oh., and I have also updated my pledge to include both lamps, because I'm an easy mark. :)

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.

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.

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.

The Dirty Pair Kickstarter pledge period is now over, with 3301 total backers and $730,930 - so it easily surpassed the last $620K stretch goal for the Japanese 5.1 audio tracks, adding almost $140K in just the last two days of pledging! Looks like this is going to be an extremely nice product that they will be releasing!

That's certainly an impressive amount for so few backers. On average more than $220 per person.

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:

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.

Yeah, that was one of about 4 anime Kickstarters I passed on, because it's not an anime I would be interested in at all. Even Dirty Pair is probably a real stretch for me, looks like way too much comedy for me, but I couldn't resist the Girls with Guns theme.

I backed the project during the last few days and went for the Lovely Angel tier + picked up the artbook too (the one for Emma was gorgeous so thought may as well.)
