The Kickstarter campaign for the Under the Dog anime ended on September 7, 2014, and raised a total of US$878,028.

The project aims to carry the tradition of older sci-fi anime titles such as Akira and Ghost in the Shell, and the material was written between 1994 and 1995. The production team used Kickstarter in order to avoid the process of funding from production committees and therefore retain creative control of the anime. With their success on Kickstarter, the team hopes to expand with more projects in the Under the Dog universe.

The project’s official website will continue to accept donations via PayPal starting on September 11, 2014.
