I stumbled on this possibly interesting crowd-funding project while I was browsing the Kickstarter site. I searched the boards a bit but couldn't find a thread about this and decided to make one. Unfortunately, I'm not into magical girl anime genre but I think the project is interesting enough as an attempt to pool money to talented people who just don't have funding.
If you haven't watched the first episode, why not check it out here?
Also, here is a review by eranet. The project has already gathered much more money than the targeted amount but just in case some people here are interested.
