17:43:15 <bay|AB|FUNi> lol
17:43:35 <bay|AB|FUNi> (Added to the disclaimer: Laura Bailey's phone number, the dub cast, the agencies for voice actors)
17:44:24 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q:FUNimation Ipad app?
17:43:55 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: if the ipad goes anywhere that the iphone goes, it'd be hard to ignore
17:43:59 <bay|AB|FUNi> just statrted on the iphone
17:44:05 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Are you going to keep the chobits cast?
17:44:14 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: Don't think we are redubbing it but would have to check
17:44:35 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Why can't you put the JP on the SAP on TV?
17:44:38 <bay|AB|FUNi> A; Rights issues
17:44:54 <bay|AB|FUNi> adds to the cost which doesn't have any real measurable return
17:44:49 <bay|AB|FUNi> and half of them aren't even available
17:45:07 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: When are you going to announce the VA's for hetalia
17:45:11 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: Casting now.... announcement summer or late spring
17:45:21 <bay|AB|FUNi> we're getting all the fan stuff from hetalia
17:45:46 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: bluray and dvd release simultaneous?
17:45:50 <bay|AB|FUNi> A; whenever we can when we do...
17:46:07 <bay|AB|FUNi> problem a is materials, problem b is reverse importation
17:46:26 <bay|AB|FUNi> so either japan doesn't let us do it or they delay it
17:46:34 <bay|AB|FUNi> whenever they let us we do, like FMA:B or DBZ:kai
17:46:43 <bay|AB|FUNi> or if they know the delay like eva, they will tell us
17:46:50 <bay|AB|FUNi> it's really just a rights issue between the regions
17:46:58 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Streaming is taking away from DVD sales?
17:47:13 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: The reason why DVD is hurting overall is illegal downloads and streaming
17:47:28 <bay|AB|FUNi> Legal streaming is giving a venue which cuts down on the illegal stuff...
17:47:44 <bay|AB|FUNi> We're going after 10000 or so things a week or even a day
17:47:58 <bay|AB|FUNi> we understand anime is expensive and we want to watch it
17:48:02 <bay|AB|FUNi> and we know that if you watch it, you might buy it
17:48:07 <bay|AB|FUNi> for DVD sales, it hasn't helped
17:48:22 <bay|AB|FUNi> as for alternate revenue, it helped
17:48:27 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: YYH movies?
17:48:42 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: Difficulties in the rights
17:49:03 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: What qualification are you looking for for translations
17:49:09 <bay|AB|FUNi> A; The translation team goes through a test....
17:49:19 <bay|AB|FUNi> one of the most rigorous tests...
17:49:26 <bay|AB|FUNi> we put them through multiple translation tests
17:49:41 <bay|AB|FUNi> (mic just died)
17:50:30 <bay|AB|FUNi> find more infomation by emailing them
17:51:03 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Mushishi blu-ray?
17:51:12 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: Gotta check on that
17:51:28 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Is buying DVDs or is buying Xbox live better?
17:51:44 <bay|AB|FUNi> A; we get a bigger chunk of the pies technically from DVDs, but buy wherever you like
17:52:10 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Lossless stereo on blu-rays?
17:52:15 <bay|AB|FUNi> A; information going up on blog soon...
17:52:26 <bay|AB|FUNi> was supposed to be up earlier...
17:52:57 <bay|AB|FUNi> in about a week, it should be up
17:53:04 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q; Geneon titles?
17:53:35 <bay|AB|FUNi> A; They have been doing well, we've been picking and choosing since there are lots of good titles
17:53:18 <bay|AB|FUNi> They won't be going straight to the SAVE line
17:53:25 <bay|AB|FUNi> they will probably hitting the main line first
17:53:51 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Shin-chan?
17:54:02 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: Want Shin-chan 3....
17:54:04 <bay|AB|FUNi> stay tuned
17:54:20 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q; How much of the original cast of DBZ:Kai did you bring back
17:54:53 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: Didn't bring back the Narrator... Bulma is new.... Gohan Kid is new...
17:55:12 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q; Save line special features?
17:55:32 <bay|AB|FUNi> A; Basically, all we are doing is taking the last release... viridian or slim box set and sticking a sticker on it
17:55:41 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: What's the rescue series process?
17:55:56 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: It's kinda the same as licensing any series.... since most of them went back to the original licensors
17:56:46 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q; Hell girl S2?
17:56:58 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: did not continue with s2 because the sales overall were not great.. it did really well at first...
17:57:07 <bay|AB|FUNi> it didn't level out... normally things peak and level out
17:57:15 <bay|AB|FUNi> it will be released by another company
17:57:17 <bay|AB|FUNi> we passed on it
17:57:27 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: more clamp stuff?
17:57:33 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: see the screen
17:57:44 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: eden of the east movies include recap?
17:57:48 <bay|AB|FUNi> A; yes
17:57:54 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q; Dgray-man?
17:58:00 <bay|AB|FUNi> A; currently only have the first 2 seasons...
17:58:07 <bay|AB|FUNi> we're releasing the first 2 seasons and thenw ill go back and look
