Right Stuf’s Kickstarter campaign to create an English-dubbed HD production of Emma: A Victorian Romance ended on Octobrt 18, 2018 with US$253,834 from 1,615 backers. The project already met its initial US$110,000 goal for an English dub of the first season as well as its US$180,000 stretch goal for an English dub of the second season.
Right Stuf’s Shawne Kleckner explained in a live stream video that anyone who has backed the project in any way will still be able to add items through its slacker backer period, which will begin after Kickstarter sends out surveys. Right Stuf will add the items to its retail website at high prices and distribute coupons only to those who backed the project. Backers will still be able to pre-order season one, season two, and the artbook in this way until the items are ready to ship. The art box will not be available through slacker backer.
The company will hold back the regular edition retail release for six months or longer after the rewards ship.
The release will be the first time the Emma: A Victorian Romance will be on Blu-ray Disc, as it has not had a Blu-ray Disc release in Japan.
