Black Lagoon’s Sunao Katabuchi Annunces Makuake for Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni

Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni A crowdfuning campaign will work towards an anime adaptation of Fumiyo Koono’s Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni original manga. The English translation of the title is In This Corner of the World. A recent exhibition related to the work was held in 2014, during Otakon.

The story is set in Japan, more precisely in Hiroshima. The main characters live in the 1930s, or about a decade prior to the attacks on the city. The protagonist herself is a young woman named Suzu Urano who moves to the Hiroshima prefecture. We follow this brave young woman as she lives through the devastation of World War two and much more.

By supporting the campaign, you can even be mentioned in the final credits! Check out the link below.

Director Sunao Katabuchi is famous mainly for the work on Black Lagoon, still considered a masterpiece of action anime and the leading title for hardcore female protagonists. His other works include Mai Mai Miracle, episodes of Monster and more.

The question is: why are less-ecchi anime more prone to getting funded by companies and professional studios while topics and works such as this one are left with crowdfunding campaigns?
