21:08:45 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q: Any chance that you might dub the movies?
21:08:47 <bay|AX|Aniplex> (TTGL)
21:08:54 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A: We don't have any plans.
21:10:25 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q: Can you release something that shows how big Gurren Lagann is?
21:10:39 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A: If you get the LE edition, there is stuff that shows
21:11:02 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q; Kara no Kyoukai movies?
21:11:16 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A: We are now thinking about it... hopefully we can bring you the title quite soon.
21:11:24 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Please stayed tuned to our announcement.
21:11:41 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q; With the Gurren Lagann movies, blu-ray?
21:11:56 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A; When Japan releases a blu-ray, prettty sure we will in the USA, but we don't know yet
21:12:13 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q; In regards to Durarara, pulling english VAs from america or having JP voice actors who speak english?
21:12:15 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A; Very hard to find the latter
21:12:51 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q: Since the Japanese DVDs come with character songs.... will those be included?
21:13:01 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A: If we included it, there would be some music clearance issues, it takes a long time
21:13:10 <bay|AX|Aniplex> so we'll just release as is, with bonus, but no plans for the music
21:13:23 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q; Any plans for the Drrr manga or light novels?
21:13:36 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A; We'll talk to Squenix
21:14:06 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q: Control over what gets released by Megahouse or any of those? 1/8th adult simon?
21:14:27 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A: Since we're not a merchandise distributor but we have a partnership, we can give them feedback
21:14:45 <bay|AX|Aniplex> I don't think it's realistic, we can't make so many figurines here... but I see some stores import it from Japan...
21:15:23 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q: Bakemonogatari.... really long delays between last few episodes....
21:15:29 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Problem with the release for the US
21:15:43 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A; not at all, the release schedule is really tight.... so it took a bit longer than usual...
21:15:55 <bay|AX|Aniplex> actually, aniplex does not have the international rights so we don't know
21:16:11 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q: Novels?
21:16:54 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A; kodansha
21:16:54 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q: Gurren blu-ray? Drr Blu-ray?
21:16:54 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A: Again, we sync with aniplex japan release, so we are going to give japan your feedback and show how popular it's going to be
21:17:03 <bay|AX|Aniplex> At this point we don't have a specific plan but all i can say is coming soon
21:17:25 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q; Would you happen to know if there is a second season of Drrr?
21:17:37 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A; We just finished the first one so we don't know... if the fans support it, it might happen
21:17:39 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Not sure yet.
21:17:42 <bay|AX|Aniplex> The novels are still going.
21:17:56 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q; Who has the final say on the dub cast?
21:17:57 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A: we do
21:18:13 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q: Which dubbing studio will be doing it?
21:18:15 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A; we haven't finalized it yet
21:18:20 <bay|AX|Aniplex> we're trying to finalize it
21:18:24 <bay|AX|Aniplex> as soon as we finish AX madness
21:19:07 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q: Kuroshitsuji 2.... are ciel and sabastian going to show up?
21:19:13 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A: it's kinda controversial in japan too....
21:19:26 <bay|AX|Aniplex> It just aired in Japan too, but FUNi announced the simulcast, so you will know next week
21:19:34 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q: Do you do your own translations?
21:19:42 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A; well we use multiple translators...
21:19:58 <bay|AX|Aniplex> we don't hire the translators, but we can introduce you to some companies
21:20:16 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q; Twitter account is all in Japanese... going to have one in english? or bilingual posts
21:20:28 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A: It should be in english.... but we'll double check...
21:20:54 <bay|AX|Aniplex> Q: Working to the US?
21:21:03 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A: we're working on it
21:21:18 <bay|AX|Aniplex> You will hear the announcement quite soon
21:21:23 <bay|AX|Aniplex> but I can't say any further at this point
21:21:26 <bay|AX|Aniplex> (he's the licensing manager)
21:21:36 <bay|AX|Aniplex> and the 24 titles we showed in the beginning
21:21:47 <bay|AX|Aniplex> here comes the first trailer again...
