Kickstarter Books: A Happy Backer Unboxing Video

This is definitely the first unboxing video that features a Bookmobile book! We print quite a few Kickstarter books, and we’ve seen social media shares of photos of proofs, boxes of books, and books out in the world, but seeing our books unpacked on a YouTube video is a new experience.

Unboxing videos are their own thing on YouTube. I personally know this from my 8-year-old daughter, who’s watched a few videos of Shopkins and Littlest Pet Shop toys being unboxed. I don’t quite get it.

But this unboxing video I understand a bit better. After all, the folks at AnimEigo are pros at Kickstarter campaigns.

The Kickstarter was for Otaku No Video Otaking Edition Subtitled AnimeOtaku No Video is the “infamous Anime ‘Mockumentary’ from Gainax, the Anime studio founded by fans who plan to Otakunize humanity!” It spoofs the culture and lifestyle of the fans obsessed with anime and manga. If you want to know more, I highly recommend checking out AnimEigo’s website.

Depending on their backing level, backers received a digital film and Blu-Ray edition, that came with a small paperback book. But backers could also receive a large-format color paperback or hardcover book, an embroidered patch, a limited-edition figure, a cel, and even more. AnimEigo offers a lot of rewards and choices to their backers! Here at Bookmobile, we were responsible for printing the two paperbacks and the hardcover—more about that in my previous post, Anime and AnimEigo, the Biggest Kickstarter We’ve Printed Yet. But without further ado, here’s the unboxing video:
