Robert J Woodhead, who has successfully Kickstarted projects for BubbleGum Crisis and Gunsmith Cats, is getting ready to bring another classic back to the fans - but what do you want to see?

Now's your chance to have your say as the project is opened up for public opinion before going live. You can make comments on the official Kickstarter Project page, where your desires will be seriously considered as another glorious piece of anime history makes an epic comeback.

The estimated project launch date is August 1st - mark your diaries!

About the Project:

Making its debut in 1985, Megazone 23 ignited the Japanese Original Video Animation (OVA) boom. It proved there was a market for direct-to-video anime films, and paved the way for anime to become not just a niche genre, but a world-wide phenomenon.

The team that created Megazone 23 includes a Who's Who of anime legends, including (just to name a few) ISHIGURO Noboru (Macross, Yamato), ITANO Ichirō (creator of the “Macross Missile Massacre”), MIYAO Gaku (Devil Hunter Yōko), MIKIMOTO Haruhiko (Macross, Gunbuster), ANNO Hideaki (Evangelion), YATAGAI Kenichi (Bubblegum Crisis), ARAMAKI Shinji (Appleseed), HOSHIYAMA Hiroyuki (Dirty Pair), ARII Emu (Bubblegum Crash), SAGISU Shirō (Evangelion), MORIMOTO Koji (The Animatrix), YŪKI Nobuteru (Vision of Escaflowne), KAKINOUCHI Narumi and HIRANO Toshiki (Vampire Princess Miyu), UMETSU Yasuomi (Kite), and KITAZUME Hiroyuki (Gundam).

With your support, it will be our honor and pleasure to help create the definitive release of the Megazone 23 Omega Edition.

Here's an old trailer to get you in the mood!
