What You Need to Know:
- The last time we chimed in on Okamoto Kitchen and its upcoming anime, the Kickstarter project had just kicked off. As of yesterday, the Kickstarter goal of $48,000 was officially reached to fund 10 short anime comic dub episodes featuring the popular food truck mascot, Haru-chan!
- The team launched their "Episode 0" giving the backstory of Haru on YouTube last month to much praise and now it's time to expand upon her adventure in Los Angeles. These episodes will be fully voiced and produced videos following the adventures of Haru and the rest of the fictional Okamoto Kitchen team, running at about 3 minutes each.
- What makes the episodes "comic dubs" is the fact that they will feature a limited amount of animation via mouth movements, facial expressions, scaling, panning effects, isolated objects in motion, and basic limb movement. Essentially what this means is that it won't be quite a full-fledged anime in terms of animation, but more like a moving comic of sorts.
- With only 5 more days remaining on the Kickstarter project, be sure to support the Okamoto Kitchen team to reach their ultimate goal, and cook up something great for you!
