Anime Limited has met the first stretch goal for the Mai Mai Miracle Kickstarter, which was to raise US$60,000 to produce an English dub of the film. As of 11:00 a.m. EST on February 11, 2014, the campaign had raised over US$62,000.

The story of the film is described as:

Shinko is a third grade elementary school student with a magically active imagination. She spends a lot of her time listening to her grandfather’s history lessons, imagining what her town was like 1,000 years earlier. One day, a sad and somber girl called Kiiko transfers to Shinko’s school from Tokyo. A strong friendship soon grows between the two girls as Shinko helps Kiiko come out of her shell and deal with her loss – all thanks to their adventures, both imagined and real.

The Kickstarter campaign will continue until March 7, 2014.
