Re: Stop backing video game projects, you twits

Eh, there's no shame in it, in my opinion. Sometimes you want to gamble a bit on the possibility of getting something you'd like. It's an investment.

Years before there was such a thing as Kickstarter, I was one of a hundred or so folks who pre-paid for ADV to license and subtitle the Kimagure Orange Road series. My name's in the end credits that run in the final tape1 of each of the two box sets, along with the rest of the backers.

I haven't watched those KOR tapes in many years; my tastes have changed a bit. In fact, I loaned the first box set to someone and never got it back. But I don't regret supporting the project.

1I did say this was some years ago.
