Smart adventure comic Atomic Robo has a new field guide for action scientists coming out, along with a boatload of merchandise. And short anime charmer Little Witch Academia is getting a sequel—and you can help fund the production. Plus, two veteran VFX artists are working on an intriguing pilot film, and could use a bit more funding.
We loved the anime short Little Witch Academia, about a young student at a school of magic just coming into her own power. Now the creators, Studio TRIGGER, are working on a sequel. Originally, the plan was to make the episode 20 minutes long, but now that they've hit their Kickstarter goal, they'll be increasing that by 15 minutes. For a $20 pledge, backers will receive a digital download of the series artbook and a standard definition download of the episode. [via Cartoon Brew]
