Little Witch Academia 2 kickstarter meets goal

The Kickstarter campaign created by Studio Trigger in order to fund a 2nd Little Witch Academia project met the US$150,000 pledge goal within five hours of starting on July 8th. The project was announced at Anime Expo, and will bring back the original staff in order to create a new episode by winter 2014. The Kickstarter funds will be used to lengthen a 20-minute episode into a total of 35 minutes for the short.

More details can be found on the Kickstarter campaign website, along with some preliminary character designs!
