We’re so excited about this summer drive, and how partnering with you can help us continue to grow our site. When I was considering what we could give away as a grand prize for the drive, one anime kept coming back to my mind: Your Name (Kimi no Na wa). The movie’s popularity has been through the roof, but it’s also a movie that’s a good fit for our site. The director’s focus on loneliness, connection, distance, and love work in tandem with many of the themes we discuss. It’s a meaningful film, and our site is all about meaning – in anime, in life, in faith.
One of the pieces of our drive’s Kimi no Na wa grand prize package is the movie’s visual story, a wonderful book import from Japan that takes you through the movie and behind the scenes. Here’s a little video I developed showing what it looks like:
We’re also including a few more awesome pieces – a great 16″ x 20″ art print, the Your Name light novel, and the awesome soundtrack by RADWIMPS! For a chance to win, become a patron at the $5 bronze level. For every $5 more you give, you’ll receive an additional entry (up to five for the gold level of $25/month), in addition to qualifying for higher levels and their perspective awards.
Please head over to our Patreon page and consider giving now. Our campaign ends June 30th. Thank you so much for your support and partnering with us and the work we’re doing on Beneath the Tangles!
