    Pied Piper is already considering stretch goals beyond the Blu-Ray upgrade:

    •Marathon mode (option to view episodes w/o OP and ED)
    •and other REALLY exciting bonus features that we can't announce just yet! (pending production committee approval!)
    They have not announced funding levels for any of them yet, although the CEO said it would take approximately $5,000 in additional pledges for the "marathon mode"

      For me, at least, the marathon mode is worthless. I usually like watching the OP and ED, and for those times when I feel like not, I'd rather just have the option of using the skip button as always (since it can sometimes vary from episode to episode, even in the same sitting, whether I feel like it, or I might want to watch the OP and not the ED or vice versa). All of the other bonus features sound very appealing, though.

        I'm sure we'll hit that BD stretch goal within the next few hours!

          And it's about to happen. Less than $800 left to be raised before the BD happens.

              Achieving the Blu-ray goal with more than a whole day left? Color me impressed. Going to be putting in my pledge soon after deciding whether I want to shell out that extra $50 for the artbox.

                  Kaap in mind that the artbox is exclusive to the Kickstarter!

                        Been trying to get on to the site to pledge for the Blu-ray. However, it keeps timing out. I wouldn't be surprised if this goes a lot higher than many anticipated.

                          And just like that, it is almost at the $200k mark. Certainly, having those add-ons helped a great deal and there's going to be enough cash to add some more great stuff to this.

                            Yeah saw that. Decided to take the plunge and pledged $160 for the artbox tier. I'm such a sucker for artboxes. Looking forward to checking the show out dubbed. Really hope this show is as good as people are saying it is. Think I'm going to go in fresh and not sample any of it off Crunchyroll first.

                              Well, they made it past 200k now. Current funding levels: 1,445 backers with $200,029 pledged of $155,000 goal and 20 hours to go.

                              I think they will make it to the 210k Indiegogo goal with ease by the end. It's great to see this project doing so well.

                                Agreed, though I do think there's some value in it where super-long series are concerned, like Dragon Ball or One Piece.
