Yesterday, Hato Moa and Erick Scarecrow launched a Kickstarter with a goal of creating Hatoful Boyfriend plush toys based upon the mad doctor Shuu, childhood friend Ryouta, and all-around crazy bird Okosan. The goal was to get $25,000 in 32 days. One day later, over $46,000 has been raised by over 860 backers and everybirdie gets the chance to acquire another plushie. Nageki Fujishiro, the mourning dove, has joined the “cast.”
While prototype plushies of Shuu, Ryouta, and Okosan have been released, Hato Moa and Erick Scarecrow only have concept art of the Nageki plush to share. People who have pledged $16 to get Shuu or $25 to get Shuu, Ryouta, or Nageki can chip in an additional $16 to add Nageki to their orders.
Nageki’s joining of the Kickstarter flock isn’t the only recent Hatoful Boyfriend Official Plush Project development. The $75 backer levels, which would have guaranteed people the three base birds and a limited edition plush of either Maid Ryouta or Souma Isa have sold out. As of writing, there are still five of the ten $1,000 level backer bundles available.
The Hatoful Boyfriend Official Plush Project Kickstarter ends on December 6. The plush birds are expected to take flight in May 2016. No word yet if Sakuya, Yuuya, Kazuaki, or Azami will be added as additional plushes.
Update: A stretch goal has been reached, adding Anghel as a plushie. Existing backers can add $16 to their order to get one. The $55,000 stretch goal adds a Yuuya plushie.
