It All Adds Up in the End

You asked. We listened.
Now is your chance to see if your preferred name is on the wall!
That name you see will end up in the end credits.


So we have updated our “Special Thanks” wall.
This is in response to requests from our backers, asking for an option to choose what name should appear on the end credits of the Under the Dog’s OVA.

See if your name is on the wall exactly as you indicated on the survey!


Please note:
You must have a backer status of WALK-IN tier or above for your name to be credited on the wall.

For those who could not find their names on the wall–

  • Have you replied to the BackerKit survey yet? The wall reflects the survey replies we have received.
  • Your name should be within 20 characters (including spaces). If you used more than 20 characters, what you typed in will not show up. Please log in to your survey and edit your name.
  • Special Thanks name list is manually transported from BackerKit database. So even if you change your name on the survey, it will not be reflected on the wall immediately. Please check the “Last update” date at the top. If the date is later than the date you changed your name, it should reflect the name change.
  • If you cannot find your name even after you have registered your name correctly on the survey, try using the search function of your browser. (Press Ctrl + F or Command ⌘ + F)

    Looks like I’m late to the party despite knowing about this for a while now. I really wanted my name in the credits. I will be buying the bluray but it’s just not the same. Good luck in any future projects. :)

    I guess my name has a history of having a repeat in it. It should be Linnemeier. It somehow turned into Linnememeier

    Having that said, I will try to answer some of the questions posted here.

    Christopher Martarano-san,
    Japanese sometimes have long names, too. The longest well-known last name is Higashikokubaru. If your first name contains shi or tsu, like Yoshitsuna, then the total count becomes 26 (including a space). But you can be creative with your name in the credits. It can be your nickname or pseudonym. (Like “Baru” or “Yosshi” in this fake example of a long name.)

    Brendon Walsh-san,
    Your name is on the wall, with correct “e”. Please try the search function on your browser.

    Tayler Grant Franklin-san,
    Have you found your updated name in the latest version of the wall? I did!

    Abdullah Al-Mousharji-san,
    Sorry…but yes, you are right. A space is counted as a character.

    Nick Linnememeier-san,
    It seems like what you have put exceeded 20 characters. You can go back to your survey and edit your preferred name on the credits. Please check your inbox to find the survey invite. (Check your spam folder, too.)

    Pedro Santiago-san,
    It seems like you have not answered the survey yet. Please check your inbox to find the survey invite and answer the question about your preferred name on the credits. (Check your spam folder, too.)

    Again, if you have any further questions, please ask us via CONTACT or send us an email.

    Thank you in advance.

    I’m having a little bit of trouble finding my name.
    Can you guy tell me if my name is on this? It should be there.

  • Nick Linnememeier29th January 2016 on 11:16

    I couldn’t find my name or the name I would have put to be identified as. I know I did the backer survey so I don’t know what to do anymore.

  • Abdullah Al-Mousharji29th January 2016 on 6:34

    I didn’t find my name, even though it’s exactly 20 characters, unless you’re counting the “space” as part of the 20 character limit.

  • Tayler Grant Franklin28th January 2016 on 5:30

    My name is apparently too long with the spaces. Either that, or there was an error. I don’t know if I included my middle name in the survey, to be honest. I can change it to leave out my middle name, but I don’t actually know where to find the survey to update it. I feel like 20 characters my be a little too limiting for a lot of people. As Christopher stated, it’s pretty common for European names to exceed that limit.

  • Brendon Walsh28th January 2016 on 2:04

    My name was somehow misspelled to “Brandon Walsh” rather than the correct “Brendon Walsh”. I don’t know how something like that happens when it should be copy and pasted from the survey. Is someone manually transcribing these?

  • Christopher Martarano28th January 2016 on 2:00

    You’ve got to be kidding me. My name is 21 characters long so I don’t get to be in the credits. Ridiculous.

    Sorry not everyone has a Japanese name with 4-5 characters in it.
