ABOUT THE PROJECT


Hello. My name is Showji Murahama. I am an animation and smartphone application producer. "Guitar Shoujo" and "Tohoku Zunko" are some applications that were recently released. I am now working on creating a new challenge with YUKIUSAGI, the character designer for the hit anime "Moshidora".


The percentage of solar and wind energy used in Japan were only 0.2% and 0.4% respectively in 2010. I personally believe that renewable energy has much greater potential than what it currently accounts for.


To increase awareness and attention toward reuseable energy, we have created "Kirara" and "Fuka" as a moe character for solar and wind energy. Our hope is that the moe personification will help familiarize these energy sources.


This project will evlove through the involvement of supporters. We have initiated the first step by recommending a simple concept of these characters. We hope many participate in this project to complete the story.


"Kirara" and "Fuka" are characters that anyone will be able to use for not for profit activities. Corporations and organizations that have already incorpoated solar and wind energy can also use the characters free of charge.


Please participate in this project ot make "Kirara" and "Fuka" real.


With the support from users, we will add Character Voices and create an Audio Drama. We plan to sell the Drama by recording on CD. Purchasers of the CD, attendess of events, and supporters of over 5,000 SEEDs will be able to download a message to their smartphones and PCs. Updates on this projects will be reported regularly.


BACKGROUND OF THIS PROJECT


The earthquake in Japan was a very tragic event which cannot be described in a space this size.


Looking back at what has happened, I have realized that many of us have very limited knowledge on energy. Having energy is a given, but we know very little about it.


I noticed that there are not many resources available to learn, discuss, and support natural energy. Our goal is, regardless of how small a step this project is, to increase the opportunity for poeple to think about natural energy.


TO PROJECT SUPPORTERS


We have decided to use WESYM to maximize the number of people who start thinking about natura reusable energy. Please support this project if you agree with the cause.


To have the maximum impact, the characters can be used on anyone's website, SNS page as long as it is not to make profits. Please feel free to use or further develop the characters.


This project with target funding of 500,000 JPY is to create the script for the audio drama.


With a budget of 1,000,000 JPY, we will decide the Character Voice based on feedback from users. The Character Voice will be announced as a project update on this page. Supporter of this project will be invited to the event and talkshow with voice actors.


Everyone who support this project will be invited (Travel expenses need to be paid by supporter)
