22:23:38 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> tororo: Da Capo II , I'm sure a lot of you have seen the anime on youtube or something, its like a sequel but more like a powered up version
22:24:01 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> tororo: Da Capo I only had a little sister, this time you have a big sister in addition to a little sister
22:24:14 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> (this is like the 6th interpreter)
22:24:48 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> tororo: So actually Yuka Kayura was doing autographs, and she is in charge of illustrating the big sister, Otome for Da Capo II

22:26:33 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> kouryuu: We're working very hard on it; based on romance of the 3 kingdoms, a lot of difficulties involving the terms for the attack names, Chinese places, formations, nicknames used in previous translation of the romance of th3 kingdoms, making everything consistent, making sure it's a high quality release
22:26:38 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> probably be out very soon, but can't give date now

22:28:29 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> We recorded this live for the game
22:28:42 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> bamboo: Of course, including the H-scenes
22:29:22 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> We want to get the next(?) dear drops out as soon as possible

22:30:04 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> shinji katakura is doing the character design and also the story for all of it too
22:30:26 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> and he's also have written 600 pages of the manga based on it
22:30:26 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> it's incredibly cool
22:30:47 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> it'll be poopular everywhere it's released
22:31:26 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> We've also like to release a game here on MG only, and not in Japan
22:31:41 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> tororo: How many people have gone to Japan?
22:32:08 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Because a lot of people haven't been here, I want to make it like a digital study abroad through a bishoujo game system
22:32:44 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> We hope people take the time to check it out and if it's successful we'll produce more of it
22:33:03 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> We'd like to actually sell it at AX next year so you got something to look forward to
22:33:12 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> kouryuu: well that was a lot of news
22:34:02 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> kouryuu: now is Q&A
22:34:03 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Q: Anything you guys doing with the comics section?
22:34:28 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: We are planning to get some comics up there... H ones
22:34:59 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: We already got a contract lined up with the publisher
22:34:59 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: So it should be soon
22:35:35 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Q: For all the artists... do you insert your friends as cameos?
22:36:15 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Q: since non one really looks at them
22:36:46 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: Well, we don't do that, but our games are in the same universe, sometimes we put cameos from a different game (age)
22:37:36 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: I've done a job like that before, where I was repsonbilel for backgrounds , sometimes I put characters I've done them before (katakura)
22:38:15 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: I've heard about this, but in the background, sometimes they'll write "Gundam" or some reference to some other series
22:38:20 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> (that was bamboo)
22:38:37 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: It's really dangerous thing to do, because the Gundam people are really strict with their rights
22:38:45 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: The company could go bankrupt if it blew up
22:38:59 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: It's like putting mickey mouse in something and trying to not get sued
22:39:32 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: I can't say this loud, but... I have... it's a secret! (kayura)
22:40:03 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Q: question for kouryuu! what was that last gues s hinting typemoon?
22:40:25 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: second hint in, everyone started getting really heated up about a certain game company
22:40:35 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: so I saw azrael and decided to go with it
22:40:49 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Q: Any possibility for Kujira?
22:41:53 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Q: Why is signficantly less known than other Circus products
22:42:38 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: tororo: there is something going on, that's why it's less well known -- because people don't like girls who don't wear school uniforms
22:43:13 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: so localizing that title would depend... plan is to release what's popular first, maybe it 'll come out if you tell your friend sto raise our popularity
22:43:45 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> (concert now)
22:44:02 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> I'm Aina Kase, call me Aina
22:44:10 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> This is my third time here at Anime Expo
22:44:26 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Mostly I sing songs for CIRCUS's titles
22:44:42 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Does everyone know zettai ryouiki?

22:48:24 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> ( we have a full otagei section going)
22:49:50 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Thank you very much.
22:51:30 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Do you guys know what that was? That's called otagei.
22:50:37 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> It's really popular in Akiba. It's really popular for otaku to get around with lights and clap and turn around and around.
22:50:56 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> So if you have a chance to go to japan or if there is an artist here from japan, please do the otagei
22:51:00 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Last song
22:51:03 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Glowing
22:52:06 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> (And the AX staff seems to be playing with the lights)
