Thank you to everyone who donated, shared, supported, etc! They made their goal!



Campaign page: www.kickstarter.com/projects/d…

The following ad contains action, fighting, combat, modern fantasy, mystery, spies and spooky conspiracy theories which combine with cold war spy stories as well as modern fantasy anime and Asian action cinematography. This creates an amazing product.



With characters designed by veteran anime character designer and animation director Senbon Umishima(Black Bullet, She and her cat, Attack on Titan), "Abyssian Knights" is a brand new IP produced by Dev Null Studios, a former clandestine development studio specializing in console game development, animation tools and digital interactive entertainment.

The animated series is an Asian action film with anime aesthetics and a storyline inspired by conspiracy theories, cold war spy stories and prohibition era gangster tales.

The Kickstarter campaign needs $0.00 to fund the production of two webisodes with stretch goals to fund additional content.

The synopsis:

The beautiful, port city of Heavensfall holds a secret. Aria DaCappa has the perfect life as a student in the city and partying with her childhood friend, Edouard "Derp" Derpiene. However, when she finds a weathered Soul Crystal in her cellar, she begins to realize that things are not quite as they seem in her family. An initiation into a society of secrets leaves Aria with some startling questions about her past, and she sets off to old-fashioned Heavensfall to find some answers.

At first the people of Heavensfall are helpful and energetic. She is intrigued by the mysteriously cold bartender, Tatiana Kraslichnaya. However, after she is introduced to Angel Dust, Aria slowly finds herself drawn into a web of demonic worship, deception and assassination.Can Aria resist the draw of Angel Dust and uncover the secret of the weathered Soul Crystal before it’s too late, or will her demise become yet another Heavensfall legend?



For more information including director’s notes for characters please see the project page on Kickstarter www.kickstarter.com/projects/d…

lol i was joking about the Jojo reference but I'm glad you tok it as a joke and thanks for answering most f the questions some including me has^^ congrats on meeting up with your goal^^

so does that mean this project is apart of Studio Wit or Porductio I.G.? Wit has some decent animators ill admit but i think you guys are set with I.G. (i mean come on dudes who made Evangalian, Ghost in the Shell etc. its a dream come true)

Thanks for the reply! Life's too short to take things seriously all the time. Besides, if someone managed to pitch the idea for a film about a tornado full of sharks, there's the remote chance you might actually be on to something!

Both Wit Studio and Production I.G. are great studios and I would love to work with either one but at the moment, this project isn't a part of either company. However if somehow one day it does, I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be surprised. ;)

Hopefully the animation quality is due to it being a demo. Because if that's what it'll look like in the final product I wont be impressed.

Though this may sound and look interesting, I'm not really seeing anything this series has in common with RWBY, besides the anime in 3D style, so I wouldn't really call this RWBY-esque.

You don't have to apologize, it's not a problem. As I said before, I'm still interested in the project, and the character designs look great, I just not seeing any similarities to RWBY, which makes me question why the title call it RWBY-esque when it's completely it's own thing.

Probably because the creator was inspired by RWBY to turn this from an RPG to a web anime

Haha, after this I hope we can go a while without an ad. I don't want to spam people with these projects, even if they're staffed with good people and are producing good results.

Hopefully it'll do a bit better than RWBY did. Don't get me wrong, RWBY was awesome, but it was lacking something. Also it was made by an animator. Not particularly a story writer so of course it'll have flaws. I just can't bring myself to face volume 3 again.
