Ankama, the people behind Wakfu, are running a Kickstarter to dub the show into English and release it on Blu-ray.  Naturally, they reached their goal in the first day and are fast approaching their third stretch goal ($200k), which will be a dubbed Blu-ray of season 2 and a release of the quote-manga-unquote on Comixology.

CAD $40 gets you the Blu-ray, a Wakstarter t-shirt, and two PDF artbooks on the making of the first season.  Including shipping anywhere in the world, so that's a really good deal if you live in Australia.

The Blu-ray(s) will be region-free, and will also have the original French language track and subtitles in English, French, and Spanish.  So even if the dub turns out to be like most dubs, you'll still have a legit hi-res copy of Wakfu to watch.

Also, it seems that when they hit the next stretch goal - about three more days at the current rate - the extra Blu-ray for season 2 will be included for no extra cost.

Update: Bumped, because now you get both seasons on two Blu-Rays for the same price (CAD $40 including worldwide shipping).  The next stretch goal is for the dubbing of their mini-Wakfu episodes; the Kickstarter should reach that within a week.

1 This is all rather surreal because the animation was an extended teaser for an MMORPG, wasn't it?

2 Basically, yes.  But although the MMORPG roots show clearly in the story, it's a lot of fun in its own right; I consider it one of the best western cartoons in the last ten years.
