Kickstarter is growing in popularity as a sandbox for jittery Japanese VN developers. Are English consumers getting the short end of the stick?

Crowdfunding is the latest fad in visual novel localization, first popularized by Sekai Project and now catching on as players like âge join the fray. Notable crowdfunded localization projects (all by Sekai Project) include fault milestone one ($35k), World End Economica ($95k), the Grisaiatrilogy ($475k), and Clannad ($541k). Upcoming crowdfunding campaigns include the MuvLuvseries (Degica and âge) and Root Double (Sekai Project).

Like it or not, crowdfunding of visual novel localization is picking up momentum. As Sekai Project CEO put it, "Welcome to the new normal."
