16:58:25 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q&A
16:59:21 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Reprising the dub cast from Baccano that show up in Drr?
16:59:26 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; Don't think so.
16:59:38 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Which dubbing studio?
16:59:44 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; We're going to work with Bang Zoom.
16:59:57 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Bakemonogatari in the US?
17:00:06 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; Actually, Aniplex US doesn't have the rights. Kodansha does.
17:00:24 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Cencoroll in the US?
17:01:02 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A: (I think he said that they are looking forward to work with someone in the states and they have a licensor)
17:01:23 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: (Drr question from the source materials)
17:01:41 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; (couldn't answer)
17:01:58 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Drr novels or manga?
17:02:23 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A: Not by us, it's controlled by Square-Enix and they are looking for partners.
17:02:42 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Kara no Kyokai in the states?
17:02:53 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; We have rights, but negotiating with the partner right now.
17:03:05 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: RoD. BD leading to Kamichu Bluray?
17:03:12 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; If the sales go well, we'll think about it.
17:03:23 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Box set for Durara eventually?
17:03:35 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; Not in the near future.
17:03:58 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> The title is still being released in Japan so we can't release a box.
17:04:42 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q; In Japan there are perfume lines for Shizuo and Izaya, any chance of getting those?
17:04:33 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; No, at this point we don't have a plan to import the perfume.
17:04:48 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Durara on TV?
17:05:08 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A: We're having discussion with a broadcaster and a digital company, so hopefully we can have an opportunity.
17:05:15 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Durara OVA included?
17:05:21 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; It will be.
17:06:05 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Drr dubbed... if it's popular or case by case?
17:06:09 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; case by case.
17:06:47 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q; Second season of Drrr?
17:06:59 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A: Possible, but nothing yet.
17:08:06 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Doing Durara by yourselves?
17:08:26 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; Just established it, and Gurren is our first title, and Durara is our second. But we still have a partnership with other companies.
17:08:35 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> So we will be doing titles by ourself and licensing to other companies
17:08:53 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Depends on the title.
17:09:35 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: (Question about localization notes for Durara)
17:09:41 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A: We'll consider notes or something...
17:10:36 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Gurren Lagann movies dubbed? On TV?
17:10:47 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; Not at this point, maybe in the future.
17:13:18 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> (Bunch of not-aniplex questions)
17:13:18 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Other dubs you are considering?
17:13:18 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A: It's not like that. It depends on the titles. We know you like a dub. We want to make it. But the time and cost ... dubbing is not cheap. We have to always think if it makes sense or not
17:13:18 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> And of course we love to dub.
17:14:06 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q; When will Gurren Lagann be in Super Robot Wars?
17:14:34 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; Banpresto hasn't approached us.... (after an explanation and some back and forth)
17:15:13 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Durarar hybrid?
17:15:14 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A: Yes.
17:15:29 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q; Simon speaks russian in the subs, will it be in russian or english in the dub?
17:16:09 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A: (They have to think about it. Think it will be subbed.)
17:16:06 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q; Any news on Angel Beats licensing?
17:16:19 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A: It's not been announced yet so I can't say anything. But you should know soon.
17:16:30 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Drr 2nd season?
17:16:39 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; (again)
17:17:03 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Sorawoto in the US?
17:17:20 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> A; TRSI announced it, and it's streaming on CR currently.
17:17:26 <bay|Ota|Aniplex> Q: Occult Academy to the US?
