Last year, Hato Moa and Erick Scarecrow ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to create Hatoful Boyfriend plushes. 2,514 people ended up kicking in $145,015 to get stuffed Ryouta, Okosan, Shuu, Kazuaki, Sakuya, Yuuya, Anghel, Nageki, Souma Isa, and Maid Ryouta plushes. On November 3, 2016, Hato Moa and Erick Scarecrow decided to do it again. The Hatoful Boyfriend 2nd Semester Plush Project crowdfunding campaign has launched on Kickstarter.
This time, the goal is to make 5” plush birds based on characters from Hatoful Boyfriend and Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star. The project is hoping to raise $50,000 by December 6, 2016, of which over $27,000 has been raised already. The goal is to make Azami, Tohri, Rabu-san, Hitori, Kazuaki-kun, Ryuuji, Albert, and The King plushes, as well as a special 12” Anghel set that will also include Wallenstein, Dark Anghel, and an Anghel Poncho. A yet-unnamed $65,000 stretch goal has also been announced.
The smallest contribution someone can make to the Hatoful Boyfriend 2nd Semester Plush Project is $25. This will get people either set 01, which includes Tohri, Azami, and Rabu-san, or set 02, with Hitori, Zakuaki-kun, and Ryuuji. For $45, people can get both sets. The Albert or The King plush sets, which include the limited edition birds and both sets 01 and 02, require $100 contributions. The 12” Anghel set is $250. Expected delivery is April 2017.
Each bird will have embroidered features and be made of super velour material, as well as have a hang-tag and PVC character label.
