Planetarian Snow Globe Crowdfunding Campaign Starts November 29

Visual Art’s/Key have announced it will soon start crowdfunding for an OVA in the Planetarian series, Planetarian Snow Globe.

Planetarian is a series of visual novels and anime series by VisualArt’s/Key, starting with Planetarian: The Reverie of a Little Planet.

This first visual novel (or “Kinetic novel” as Key puts it, due to its lack of player choice or gameplay) is set in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity is almost wiped out. One human runs into Yumemi Hoshino, a female robot that acts as a guide for the planetarium- blissfully unaware of the world outside.

The Campfire crowdfunding campaign is set to begin November 29th (also the 15th anniversary of the original PC release for Planetarian: The Reverie of a Little Planet), and will likely be based off the prequel light novel of the same name. They are hoping to raise 30 million yen ($276,000 est.) to produce a 25 minute OVA.

Confirmed staff include director Jin Tamamura (The Girl in Twilight, Iron Vendetta) with studio Okuru to Noboru (The Helpful Fox Senko-san, WATATEN!: an Angel Flew Down to Me), series composition and script writer Shogo Yasukawa (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma), character designer Hitomi Takechi (Hyperdimension Neptunia). Visual Art’s/Key will be handling background music and music production themselves.

Other staff members include:

  • Prop Design: Kazutaka Ema
  • Art Director: Yukihiro Watanabe
  • Art Setting: Takahiro Murata
  • Color Design: Yuko Sato
  • Director of Photography: Naotaka Watanabe
  • 3D Director: Yoji Nagasawa
  • Editing: Kiyoshi Hirose
  • Sound Director: Takayuki Yamaguchi
  • Sound Effects: Yasumasa Koyama
  • Supervisor: Naokatsu Tsuda

We will keep you posted as we learn more.
