Take the fight to KICKSTARTER


29th July 2015

Survey Setback

Survey is coming up!…soon.

The survey will be sent out, but not at the end of this month as we had hoped. This is due to some unexpected delays in the set-up with BackerKit. We apologize for the delay. Once the set-up situation is cleared, we will then send out a survey asking you to fill out all the details. We will of course inform our backers in advance when it is ready.

Kick-off Anniversary: let’s celebrate together!

Last year on August 8, the launch of Under the Dog Kickstater campaign was announced at Otakon 2014. We have a plan to present something special on that day next month to celebrate the one-year anniversary as a token of thanks to our backers for their support! (Hush-hush: we might be able to make an announcement about Anthea figurine as well.)

Greetings from Mr. Justin Leach

Lastly, we have a message from Mr. Justin Leach. We introduced Mr. Leach in our last Update as our Associate Producer.


Dear UTD Backers,

My name is Justin Leach. A couple of years ago I produced the first anime from Japan on Kickstarter called “Kick-Heart” directed by Masaaki Yuasa with Production I.G. It was a great learning experience that helped bring anime into the crowdfunding arena. Prior to Kick-Heart, I also worked in Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, Last Exile, Kill Bill and Ghost in the Shell 2.0 (special edition of the first Ghost in the Shell).

I am very happy to announce that I have joined the UTD team as an Associate Producer. My job will be to help share my past experience with the team and act as an available resource when needed. I have met with the producers and production staff in person several times and I have been extremely impressed with their passion and determination to make this the best possible project despite some initial challenges early on. I have no doubt that the end product will be something truly special that will make backers proud.

Justin Leach

Till the next Update then!
