Hey there I found some great Kickstarters that need funding, and I want to spread the word! :D I think these are two projects that deserve a shot to be funded. :D

The first up is a book series by the name of the series "Rain of the Ghosts " being turned into a audio book made by the amazing Greg Wisemen! :w00t!:

Greg Weisman, creator of Gargoyles and the writer and producer of multiple comic books and animated series, including Star Wars Rebels, Young Justice, Captain Atom, W.I.T.C.H., The Spectacular Spider-Man and Star Wars Kanan: The Last Padawan.

"Rain of the Ghosts " are the adventures of Rain Cacique, a young girl descended from the indigenous Taíno people of the Caribbean.  Rain lives on the Ghost Keys, a chain of islands on the edge of the Bermuda Triangle, where her parents own and run a Bed & Breakfast that is both Rain’s home and place of employment.  Over the course of the first book, Rain goes from making beds for tourists to learning she has the ability to communicate with ghosts.  Rain has a mystery to solve, a mission to accomplish and a destiny to fulfill.  I can honestly guarantee that if you enjoy the sensibility, characters, plotting and surprises I’ve brought to such series as Gargoyles and Young Justice, you’ll love Rain of the Ghosts.

They have already recorded all the voice work.  All of it.  Done and paid for.  Talented newcomer Brittany Uomoleale plays Rain Cacique.  And the rest of the cast we’ve assembled is truly amazing:
  • Thom Adcox (Gargoyles, Young Justice, Felix the Cat);
  • Edward Asner (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Gargoyles, Up);
  • Jeff Bennett (Gargoyles, Young Justice, Batman: The Brave and the Bold);
  • Steve Blum (The Spectacular Spider-Man, Star Wars Rebels);
  • Daniella Bobadilla (Anger Management, Smallville);
  • Jim Cummings (Gargoyles, Darkwing Duck, Winnie the Pooh);
  • Elisa Gabrielli (Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man, Madagascar);
  • Bryton James (Young Justice, The Young and the Restless);
  • Josh Keaton (The Spectacular Spider-Man, Green Lantern: The Animated Series);
  • Eric Lopez (The Spectacular Spider-Man, Young Justice);
  •  Vanessa Marshall (Young Justice, Star Wars Rebels, Guardians of the Galaxy);
  • Jacqueline Obradors (NYPD Blue, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Young Justice);
  • Gregg Rainwater (Gargoyles, Young Justice, The Young Riders);
  • Marina Sirtis (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Gargoyles, Young Justice);
  • Brent Spiner (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Gargoyles, Star Wars Rebels);
  • Deborah Strang (The Spectacular Spider-Man);
  • Joel Swetow (Charmed, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine);
  • Jacob Vargas (Sons of Anarchy, Max Steel);
  • Greg Weisman (The Spectacular Spider-Man, Young Justice).

In addition, Dynamic Music Partners, the composers of everything from Spectacular Spider-Man to Young Justice, from Justice League Unlimited to Marvel’s Avenger’s Assemble, have come aboard to compose over four hours of music for Rain of the Ghosts.

But in order to complete the post-production (i.e. edit the vocal tracks, and create and mix all the music and sound effects to the highest quality standard), they’re asking you to contribute to this KickStarter campaign.

Please go here and support Greg's Dream, there is very little to lose:…

You can also by his first two books in the series here :)……

Next up is familiar to most Anime fans ;) It's a Dragon Ball Z live action Fan Film, though I would guess that "Fan Series" would be more appropriate as it is a live-action Dragon Ball Z web series that adapts "The History of Trunks".

This is a project of love and it shows but they need your help to give DBZ the level of Quality it deserves! :nod:

They have already made the pilot, as can be seen here:…

I want you to remember, that was what they could do with the BARE MINIMUM. Also, that was there FIRST PROJECT as a team! They've lived and they've learned & are prepared to SHATTER the bar once again! They have proved that Dragon Ball Z can be made in live-action but we can do better with your help!

By supporting this project you will:

#1. The BEST Live-Action Dragon Ball Z in the Universe!

#2. The episodes will be available to watch for FREE on Youtube

#3. Some cool perks, but most importantly, they will keep you updated on the project and listen to your feedback, concerns and suggestions. You get to be a part of Dragon Ball Z history!

Those that have followed our project so far know that we care what you have to say and we do listen. 

Therefore, several of the perks include the rights to vote on various things throughout the production of the web series.

This project is important to us because as DBZ fans we have been deprived of a proper live-action adaptation, not that abomination we got with "Dragon Ball Evolution". We are fans who are making this for Dragon Ball Z fans across the world. :D

If you’ll join us on journey – we can guarantee that you’ll be a part of a project that changes DBZ history forever.  It’s up to all of us to make this happen.

Please support the project here:…

I encourage everyone to please donate and spread the word because these are two projects that deserve to be funded. :D

Not really. I didn't feel it.

Here's the REAL reasons why it's different from other Magical Girl shows. Read all my points below. This is what really sets it apart from all the others.

Please read over all 4 of my points below, and see what I mean.

1. There is no "Queen Beryl or Rita Repulsa-esque" Head Honcho Villain who is sitting on her throne, sending out the enemies after them.

(I always found Queen Beryl in Sailor Moon to be similar to villains such as Rita Repulsa in Power Rangers, Dr Hell in Mazinger Z, Gibbs in Titan Maximum, and also similar to baddies like King DeDeDe in Kirby and the Head Honchos in Jojo's Bizzare Adventure).

Like in most Magical Girl shows, there's always a Queen Beryl-esque head Honcho shown at the start who is like in each episode "Hahahaha, I'll send this one of my Random Minions after them, it will be the best way to deal with those troublesome heroes, and then I'll rule the world, MWA-HAHAHAHA!"

And most of the time, the random minion she sends out has something to do with a particular personal problem or place they are at or other such situation they are in for the episode.
(Example, during the Sailor Moon episode where the girls were hanging out at an Auto Repair Shop, Queen Beryl sent after them a Daimon Minion of her's called "Steering," who had Car-based powers, because that had to do with the situation they were in for that episode).

Then when the Random Minion is defeated, she's like "Blast, how could that minion have lost? But I'll be back with another one, and next time You Sailor Scout Heroes will Regret This," or something like that.

And when Queen Beryl isn't doing all that, she'd be seen in her evil lair, sitting on her throne, watching the Magical Girls from her Crystal Ball, and plotting out her next move (also very much like Rita Repulsa, Dr Hell, King DeDeDe, etc.)

Other Magical Girl animes also had a Head Honcho like that sending them out, including Tokyo Mew Mew and Pretty Cure. I forget what theirs are called, but they were just plain old Beryl/Rita clones too.

In Madoka Magica though, THERE IS NO no Queen Beryl or Rita-esque Head Honcho sending them out after them.
The Witches are acting on their own behalf, and not because some Beryl or Rita clone personally sent them after the girls as part of their plan for world domination. Not to mention, the Witch they face against is never specifically designed for the particular personal problem or place they are at or other such situation they are in for the episode.

And the presence of a Queen Beryl or Rita Repulsa style Head Honcho villain sending them out or not makes a BIG DIFFERENCE.

2. In Madoka Magica, they never say something like "WE WILL WIN BY USING THE POWERS OF LOVE," or something like that, like they always exclaim out loud in Sailor Moon and other such Magical Girl shows. That also makes a BIG DIFFERENCE from Sailor Moon and other Magical Girl series.

3. The art style of the Witches and their minions and barriers, which by the way, reminds me of corny and ridiculous stuff like Courage The Cowardly Dog, Chowder, Flapjack, The Amazing World of Gumball, Betty Boop, and other such goofy and silly shows, which also use those art styles too, and is why I can't take the series seriously, although it is still good though.
Heck, even SpongeBob used those Art Styles at times, like with "DOES THIS LOOK UNSURE TO YOU" and "The Fly Of Despair." It just made it even more ridiculous and silly-looking at those parts too.

The foes in Sailor Moon don't use that Art style for them though, which makes it different.

Here's how the majority of the bad guys they fight in Sailor Moon look like. -->

You see? The bad guys in Sailor Moon (unlike the Witches in Maho Shoujo) are much more humanoid, look more like people in costumes, with only small features such as fangs or pointy ears to show that they aren't human, are never enormous (they are always about the same size as the Magical Girls), and can even talk. Heck, many of them could easily pass as Power Rangers bad guys, who share similar features.

The Witches in Maho Shoujo are not like that though, which makes them different from the typical Magical Girl enemies because of that.

4. The Boss Battles are more action-packed and cooler, unlike most Magical Girl shows.

This is another big one, and one I think you really need to know.

Like in Sailor Moon, all the battles were basically this. She runs around a bit, goes "MOON TIARA MAGIC!" and then *Poof,* the enemy disappears instantly with pretty sparkles everywhere. That's it!
Not very action packed.

Or other times Usagi chickens out right in the middle, because she's a coward and a crybaby.
-And then the other Sailor Scouts would have to do the honors for her, but still not making it a big action-packed Boss Fight.
-Or her mysterious male benefactor, Tuxedo Mask, would arrive and then throw a rose to her and encourage her with a pep talk. Then she'd brave up from that and just proceed to do the whole "MOON TIARA MAGIC" business and finish things instantly as usual (this is most often the case)
-Or she'd be saved just by sheer dumb luck. That's it.

But in Madoka Magica, it's not like that. Instead, it's a big and long and epic fight done in real time. with lots of Parkour Moves and Explosions and Cool Attacks to damage the foe until it goes down, which Madoka Magica has instead. Much different than the wimpy stuff Sailor Moon has.

Madoka Magica's Boss Fights are more cooler and full of combat, Like something out of Final Fantasy, Xenoblade, Bayonetta, Persona, Kingdom Hearts, or other cool action-packed things like that.

Well most of them anyways, but a couple of them really weren't that good, especially near the end of the series, and could've been a lot better. One of the problems I have with the series.

But it's not just MOON TIARA MAGIC and the bad guy is finished all the time.

Oh, and the girls don't have to rely on a masked mystery man to give them moral support either, also making it different.

Do you understand now? Those points are the REAL reasons why it's different from other Magical Girl shows.

Anything you have to say about the reasons I stated?

Not really...
The tone is different because it takes a long hard look at the idea for little girls fighting monsters that can kill them.
