09:59:59 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> Bare with me a little bit, this is actually my very first panel.
10:00:15 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> Little bit about myself, I'm in charge of social media marketing which is basically everything that has to do with you guys
10:00:15 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> I talk to the fans
10:00:27 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> Every feedback email you send... I answer literally every single one
10:00:28 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> I write the funnimation blog
10:00:42 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> Answer questions on youtue comments, facebook,... twitter is actually not me, it's our PR person
10:00:46 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> She's actually one of the people I have report to.
10:00:52 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> A little bit of what we are going to do today
10:00:55 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> It's really informal
10:01:03 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> We do have a couple premiere episodes to show you.
10:01:07 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> But we will wait to show you later.
10:01:19 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> Unfortunately, not exactly any announcements or anything.
10:01:21 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> (Boo)
10:01:35 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> This is a... it's sunday, everyone has had a long weekend...
10:01:50 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> So let's see, what am I doing up here...
10:02:12 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> One of the cool things about working for FUNImation on my end is that we're the marketing department, so we get to go to conventions
10:02:17 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> Give me one second....
10:02:36 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> We are going to show the first couple episode of Nabari no Ou (the english dub)

10:06:07 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> (Polling the audience abot Sgt Frog)
10:06:29 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> (He asked if there were too many pop culture references.... that's always a bad sign if you have to ask that)
10:07:27 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> YYH movie? YYH has done great for us... that's definitely a show that we want to do as much as we can
10:07:48 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> No more single disc releases? On the singles... we personally.. .are trying to move away from that
10:08:06 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> It happens every now and then that the original creators may want a certain release format. We're trying to steer away from that.
10:08:59 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> One Piece simulcast? Coming back? Trying to get it back.
10:09:32 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> Streaming on site means DVD rights? No, not neccessarily
10:09:44 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> If we do announce a show, it will show what rights we have acquired on the press releases.
10:09:47 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> It varies per series..
10:10:26 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> If a show is streaming, is it possible to license it for a DVD release? Yes, a lot of the streaming stuff are digital rights only so the DVD rights are still available.
10:10:32 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> *streaming on CR or the like
10:10:48 <bay|Ota|FUNiTBA> Date on slayers? Don't have one..
