11:08:27 <bay|AX|CR> we have additional announcements coming
11:08:30 <bay|AX|CR> social gaming
11:08:45 <bay|AX|CR> this is an area that has been hot the past few years, we take anime and related brands and building games around it
11:09:04 <bay|AX|CR> we discovered that by building games, they tend to watch more
11:09:12 <bay|AX|CR> every few hours, you can go on facebook and click around and level up your naruto character and watch a few eps
11:09:27 <bay|AX|CR> one of the exciting partnerships that we recently announced is the last airbender
11:09:36 <bay|AX|CR> we're working with paramount to make a social media experience for the movie
11:09:50 <bay|AX|CR> reach over 1m monthly active users on facebook
11:09:58 <bay|AX|CR> shinji's deal of the day
11:10:02 <bay|AX|CR> launched about a month ago and it's been successful
11:10:14 <bay|AX|CR> was meant to be a 2-3 week try but we'll probably keep it going
11:10:20 <bay|AX|CR> this is like a woot
11:10:26 <bay|AX|CR> some deals are only us and some are worldwide
11:10:37 <bay|AX|CR> half of our 6mil users are in the US
11:10:41 <bay|AX|CR> so we want worldwide
11:10:50 <bay|AX|CR> we are looking for merchants and are happy to promote their projects
11:10:52 <bay|AX|CR> title announcements
11:10:56 <bay|AX|CR> recently started bleach simulcast
11:11:09 <bay|AX|CR> bleach is currently simulcast at 2:30am pst on tuesdays
11:11:18 <bay|AX|CR> the interesting thing about this one is that it was actually a very grass roots movement
11:11:34 <bay|AX|CR> we were discussing with jp licensors about it and they were enthusiastic but it needed an extra push
11:11:48 <bay|AX|CR> so we got our users to contribute to an online petition to show how much our fans want it
11:11:59 <bay|AX|CR> that's really what pushed it over the edge
11:12:26 <bay|AX|CR> summer title announcements next week.... on the site
11:12:34 <bay|AX|CR> timing right now is a early
11:12:41 <bay|AX|CR> so check on CR or see the press releases
11:12:54 <bay|AX|CR> financials, 30-40% growth quarter on quarter
11:12:58 <bay|AX|CR> first break even month in may
11:13:03 <bay|AX|CR> share over half of revenue with licensors
11:13:43 <bay|AX|CR> digital manga initiative
11:14:02 <bay|AX|CR> this is something we haven't official announced so you'll see a pr announce tomorrow
11:14:07 <bay|AX|CR> Bitway became a strategic investor
11:14:18 <bay|AX|CR> subsidiary of toppan printing
11:14:30 <bay|AX|CR> our previous strategic investor was tv tokyo...
11:14:35 <bay|AX|CR> but bitway is a little different...
11:14:48 <bay|AX|CR> toppan is the largest publishing company int he world, they are the one who publish and print physical manga in japan
11:15:07 <bay|AX|CR> they are the sole provider in japan of digital manga and have partnerships with every single publisher
11:15:16 <bay|AX|CR> they distribute over 25000 titles in japan
11:15:22 <bay|AX|CR> internationalization initiative
11:15:31 <bay|AX|CR> this is something that we've been putting a lot of resources towards...
11:15:57 <bay|AX|CR> the goal is to localize the CR concept in a number of languages
11:15:54 <bay|AX|CR> platform is localization ready
11:16:03 <bay|AX|CR> you can go into whatever language you want to go into
11:16:15 <bay|AX|CR> after you have been approved
11:16:21 <bay|AX|CR> want to work together, contact us
11:16:24 <bay|AX|CR> questions...
11:16:47 <bay|AX|CR> expansion into latin america? trying to expand into it..
11:16:52 <bay|AX|CR> korean dramas are available
11:17:05 <bay|AX|CR> q; for the digital manga.. is that going to be ad based or is it going to be on a title by title basis
11:17:28 <bay|AX|CR> a; that's one of the more interesting questions, about what kind of model it's going to be... while i can't give a direct answer.. it will be something familiar to the US audience
11:17:49 <bay|AX|CR> like for example, in japan, it's on cellphones, but we want to make sure it would appeal to the majority audience and make sure it's something they can afford
11:17:54 <bay|AX|CR> q: mobile apps too?
11:18:03 <bay|AX|CR> a: look into it
11:18:50 <bay|AX|CR> (question that i can't keep up with about the huge drop in simulcasts and about costs involved in subtitling)
11:19:10 <bay|AX|CR> a: we try to get every title that is economically feasible
11:19:10 <bay|AX|CR> our goal is to get 100% of all anime
11:19:25 <bay|AX|CR> q: do you have to pay more for licensing if you karaoke openings?
11:19:49 <bay|AX|CR> a: a lot of people ask about it.. it's more of a licensing approvals issue... i could give a list of reasons.... even though it's something we want to bring
11:19:55 <bay|AX|CR> one is that it's the original artist that has to approve
11:20:05 <bay|AX|CR> if you are talking about karaoke type animation, the actual animation has to be approved
11:20:19 <bay|AX|CR> there is actually a lot of difficulty in getting those approvals
11:20:33 <bay|AX|CR> it's actually quite difficult to do for every song out there
11:22:07 <bay|AX|CR> q: bleach... you started at 267... the back episodes coming?
11:22:43 <bay|AX|CR> a: we're working on it...there are multiple parties involved....
11:23:17 <bay|AX|CR> (missed something because of a net fail, question was about what was free vs pay)
11:23:25 <bay|AX|CR> question about coming to roku....
11:23:43 <bay|AX|CR> basically it requires a bunch of special work....
11:23:59 <bay|AX|CR> q: serious crackdown on fansubs and pirates in the coming months?
11:24:10 <bay|AX|CR> a: i've heard there is that digital manga initiative against piracy...
11:24:20 <bay|AX|CR> i wouldn't be surprised if it was the same for anime but i don't know anything personally
11:24:38 <bay|AX|CR> q: how long has the manga initiative been in development?
11:24:39 <bay|AX|CR> a: for a while
11:25:55 <bay|AX|CR> contest coming....
11:27:20 <bay|AX|CR> thanks for coming
11:27:22 <bay|AX|CR> end
