Last October saw the initial launch of a new Kickstarter campaign for the dazzling new animated project, Bloodline: The Animated Series, from New York-based company, Visionary Outlook, LLC and its CEO, Alphonso Devon Blackwood. Since then, Blackwood and the company evidently cancelled promoting the fundraiser to re-evaluate and analyze their platform a bit more, and they’ve now made the few necessary changes to re-launch a fresh new effort in funding their ambitious new series, with some amazing perks to boot.
There are quite a few layers and different pieces and details to this epic saga, although in my own summation, here’s the skinny: Hopeskin, a distant planet falls in upheaval as its King lay ill, ensuing a forbidden ritual by His majesty’s inner circle to scan the galaxy in search of his true heir, forcing an unwitting young 16-year old boy into an epic battle against dark intergalactic forces as he discovers his royal lineage. This is exactly the kind of formula that speaks to fans of anime and sci-fi/fantasy community alike, and Blackwood and his team are looking to expand on it anyway they can, between any number of episodes to an additional full feature film, a 2D fighting game, and MUCH more.
All that’s needed now is your generosity and interest. So, by all means, check out the new Kickstarter campaign page and donate, and/or pass it on to friends who love kickass anime!
