At the time of this post, the damn thing's already almost funded!

Edit: Trigger's goal was met within three hours.

Which makes the intersection close to White Horse Hill or Wayland's Smithy, good prehistoric sites both; sadly a bit too far North for Stonehenge or Avebury. The near horizontal line ("St Michael's Line") could almost be an idealised version of the oldest road in England, the Icknield Way.

They've done their research : other notes on the blackboard refer to this book -- http://www.amazon.co.uk/Old-Straight-Track-Alfred-Watkins/dp/0349137072 -- which readers of Alan Garner's Moon of Gomrath will be familiar with.

The St Michael's line hits to east coast at Hopton, and the next dot west will be Bury St. Edmunds; and rather than Bath, the significant circled location would be most likely Glastonbury.

Wait, "series"? I thought the kickstarter was just for a second episode?

Just finished it. It was good, but not so much that I think I would actually pay to buy a copy of the series. I guess I'll see how much I like the second episode when it comes out.

Now that they've got KLK under their belt, it'll be interesting to see where they go with this. I'm not expecting anything like KLK content-wise, but I do have higher expectations for what Trigger can crank out having watched it.

Got a based TRIGGER mail today...

Happy holiday seasons and best wishes for the upcoming new year!

At last the physical production for Little Witch Academia 2 (LWA2, title pending) has started in the studio! It is a great pleasure to see Akko and her friends receive the chance to be animated once again. Of course, this would not have been possible without the support of Kick Starter, and most importantly our fans! I would like to once again say my thanks to all of our supporters on behalf of TRIGGER.

In our previous update, we have announced that we have finally came up with a scenario that we are happy to work with. Today I would like to update our backers that our director Yoh Yoshinari is just about finishing up on drawing up the storyboard for our new episode! If all goes well, we should have a completed storyboard by this weekend! Below is couple of image from the previous LWA’s storyboard. As much as we would like to show the current storyboard, we have concluded that it is best to not spoil the story.

Image

With the storyboard just a moment away from completion, the studio is making final preparation to animating the project! Just a night ago, we had our first Saku-uchi (industry lingo for animator’s meeting with the director to get consensus with each other.) At the current rate of process, we are hoping to finish the project around May 2015. Still a long way to go, but we will do our best to keep our backers informed with the latest information regarding LWA2!

For starters, we would like to start the year by sending out our first bunch of surveys for the rewards! While the shipping date is still pending at the moment, we would like to start early to make sure that the rewards will safely arrive to your doorsteps.

We also have a small holiday gift from TRIGGER! We have made the first episode of Little Witch Academia available once again on Youtube for a limited time (roughly 24 hours) for everyone to enjoy! (you can access the stream from the link below)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBlqxEIJ_Cg

Again, a thanks to all of our supporters, and a Happy new year from TRIGGER!

That's fantastic news! LWA was pretty darn fun to watch, and it makes me glad to hear that the second one is getting along nicely in its production. It's fun to see that it's on youtube-- might as well watch it right now.
