    I really think they need to add more tiers. There's quite a jump from $209 to...$2,200. Something in the $500-$1,000 range maybe?

      Frequently Asked Questions

      How long is "feature-length"?

      By "feature-length", we're going for the Academy definition, which technically just means 40 minutes or more. We don't have exact numbers for Phantom Trigger locked in quite yet, but we're expecting about 70~90 minutes per episode - basically a full animated movie for each volume of the original game series!

      Will there be an English dub of the anime?

      Currently a dub is not something we have in the works; however, if we see a lot of people interested in one we'll absolutely look into getting it added as a stretch goal!

      Will the Blu-ray sets be region-locked in any way?

      Nope, no region locks to worry about!

      Do I need to watch the original Grisaia anime series or play the games to enjoy Grisaia: Phantom Trigger The Animation?

      While Phantom Trigger does make reference to characters, events, and concepts from the original Grisaia trilogy, and knowledge of these will certainly enhance the Phantom Trigger experience, the series is designed to be enjoyed by longtime Grisaia fans and newcomers alike. The entire original Grisaia anime series is available for streaming on Crunchyroll, and all three games in the original trilogy are available from Sekai Project on both Steam and Denpasoft.

      How will shipping be handled for the campaign? Why does it cost the amount it does?

      The default shipping method for the campaign is international e-Packet Light from Japan. This is the most affordable method that will still get your rewards to you in a reasonable amount of time. Tracking is included in your shipping charge. If you wish to upgrade to EMS, please contact us directly and we can help you out with that.

      The shipping costs are based on the actual e-Packet Light shipping charge plus the cost of packaging and labor for shipping. The shipping charges are not inflated in any way.

      How do I purchase add-ons?

      Add-ons will be purchasable in BackerKit after the campaign! You can increase your pledge by the cost of the add-on and you will be able to use that money in BackerKit for add-on purchases, or you can pay for the add-on directly on BackerKit after the campaign.

      Can I pay with PayPal?

      Unfortunately, Kickstarter does not support PayPal as a payment method. However, if you make a pledge at any tier, you can upgrade to a higher tier on BackerKit after the campaign, and use PayPal on BackerKit to cover the difference. Please do keep in mind that if limited rewards sell out during or after the campaign, you will not be able to upgrade to those tiers in BackerKit.

          New Tier Added:


          Hello to all our backers, and all of you potential backers as well!

          We've been a little quiet here the past couple weeks, but we've actually been hard at work revamping the campaign page to help make the project even better! In addition to expanded details about the anime itself, we've added character profiles with previews of each character's design, and a new reward tier - check out the details on that:

          Background Check $299
          In addition to everything in the New Fatigues tier, you'll get physical copies of Vol.1-5 of the Grisaia: Phantom Trigger PC visual novel series! This is a special limited opportunity to pick up physical copies of these games, so if you missed out, jump in now before they're all gone!

          We have a few more things in the works that we hope to unveil over the next week or so, including another new reward, some add-on items, and more! We also want to let everyone know that we are very seriously investigating the potential of making an English dub of the show a stretch goal, and are currently in discussions with a few companies to see how feasible that is, so expect more news on that soon as well!

          Thank you to everyone who's shown their support so far, and to anyone who will in the future - we're relying on your help to make this happen!

              Storyboard sneak peek & new reward for all tiers!

              Greetings, backers! We're about a month away from the end of the campaign, and we're just a hair shy of 60% funded!

              We have a nice look behind the scenes to share with you today, along with an announcement that should prove exciting: anyone who backs the campaign at any reward tier will receive a special, crowdfunding-exclusive booklet featuring storyboard images, character sketches, and more! A selection of storyboard images have been added to the campaign page, and you can also check them out below.

                I think the biggest hurdle with this Kickstarter campaign right now is the lack of lower priced tiers...

                $66,646 pledged of $100,000 goal
                431 backers
                13 days to go


                From a couple days ago...


                New reward tier - signed original CG sketches! Plus updates on in-anime credits, stretch goals, and the campaign in general.

                Hello, everyone! We apologize for the lack of updates recently for the project; we'll elaborate on that a little later in the update, but first, let's take care of the bigger news.

                Our first announcement today is the addition of a new reward tier! Take a look:

                ::: see link above :::

                That's right, this is a chance to get one of the original pencil sketch drawings by Akio Watanabe from the creation of the Grisaia: Phantom Trigger game series! Please note that while we cannot guarantee which sketch you will receive, you will be able to set a first, second, and third character preference in BackerKit. Take a look below to see a selection of what'll be available!

                Next up, an update regarding the "name in credits" reward. While we were originally informed that there was a strict limit on the number of slots we could offer, we've received updated information, and we can announce that every backer at the $149 tier or above will have their name in the credits! We unfortunately can't edit the item lists for the reward tiers themselves, but we've added a note mentioning this to the main campaign page.

                Now, let's take a few moments to talk candidly about the state of the campaign in general, including our still-unannounced stretch goals.

                While we didn't anticipate beforehand that so many fans would be so passionate about including an English dub for the Phantom Trigger anime adaptation, we certainly heard those voices, and have been exploring multiple options for making it happen, and what amount we would need to set a stretch goal at. Unfortunately, despite reaching out directly to a number of US-based English anime distributors, most have not responded to our outreach. We will of course continue to explore all angles ourselves, but we encourage anyone and everyone interested in an English dub to reach out yourselves and recommend the Phantom Trigger anime adaptation for licensing - a strong community voice may be just what we need to make things happen.

                With just over two weeks left in the 60-day campaign, this may seem to some of you like "too little, too late", and we certainly understand that sentiment. We've come to realize that a number of missteps were made in the preparation of this campaign, thanks to various factors, including a certain level of complacence in the results of our previous campaigns. We plan to redouble our efforts on community outreach and campaign updates, and still feel confident we can succeed in making this campaign one that deserves to meet its goal.

                As always, thank you for all of your support, including - and especially- holding us to the standards you've come to expect from us. We look forward to making this project a success, together!

                  I'm beginning to wonder if this will even make the initial goal. It started out so well and then it just kind of died. There's been barely any movement. There's still time, but unless something drastic happens, it might fall short, and that makes me sad.


                  • #10
                    ^ Not looking great right now...



                    • #11

                      I want this to succeed. I really do. Hopefully there's a miraculous turn around last minute.


                      • #12
                        Not looking great even with the new announced tier from earlier today...

                        (Almost) 70% funded! New reward tier, cast comments, and more!

                        Thank you very much to all of our backers for your continued support! With your help, the campaign is now just a hair shy of 70% funded!

                        We're still hard at work on updates to bring you throughout the remainder of the campaign, and we have a few to share with you today!

                        First up: due to popular demand, we've added the digital-only $30 Incoming Transmission tier! If you want to support the anime, but our physical tiers are a bit too rich for your blood, this is the perfect way to get your feet wet.

                        And if you decide you want to make things physical later? No problem! The following add-ons will be available via BackerKit after the campaign ends - this list has been added to the campaign page too.

                        Lastly, we wanted to let you know that starting today, we'll be sharing some comments from the anime's voice cast! They'll be posted daily on our Facebook and Twitter pages, with the first one going up just a couple hours from now, so be sure to check them out!

                        We're entering the last ten days of the campaign, and there's still a little way to go before we hit our goal, but we remain confident that with your support, we can make it happen! Let's keep the momentum going!

                            Very little movement even with dub stretch goal announced from earlier today...

                            489 backers

                            ENGLISH DUB STRETCH GOAL!

                            Let's cut right to the chase: after much investigation and deliberation, we can announce the details of our stretch goal for an English dub of Grisaia: Phantom Trigger The Animation!

                            As the image indicates, we just need a little more funding beyond the main goal to make this happen, OR a handful of new backers supporting the project. We're very confident about the possibility of making this happen, so please spread the word and tell your friends! Again, even if the stretch goal is not met during the campaign itself, we fully expect to raise the difference in BackerKit, so we encourage you to remain steadfast in your pledges.

                            We'll continue to keep you updated throughout the last five days of the campaign as to how likely we feel hitting the goal is. Feel free to leave comments if you have any questions about the dub or the stretch goal. Let's make this happen!

                              I would be all in for this as it looks like a great feature...but $99.00 for two episodes is pretty steep for a physical copy.
