Following on from the announcement that the Kickstarter for Emma: A Victorian Romance has reached its $180,000 goal, the campaign has now finished and Nozomi Entertainment have raised $253,834!
Following a successful 31 days the project managed to reach several stretch goals, the most significant being the dubbing of Season 2. The other stretch goals are listed below. The last goal reached was for the Kickstarter exclusive artbook to be upgraded to foil debossing.
The project had a total of 1,615 backers, and more updates on the dub are expected to follow up to when the Blu Rays are ready to be shipped to backers, and eventually be made available to the public.
As a reminder a short summary of Emma is available below:
In 19th-century London, class lines are sharply drawn, and the social standing to which people are born dictates the path their lives will follow. Emma, an honest and hardworking young maid, never felt her place in life to be a burden. But then she met William, a member of the gentry and the eldest son of a wealthy family. His warm smile and earnest affection threaten to capture her heart… but can love truly conquer all?
