16:34:08 <bay|AX|Aniplex> nia... hynden walsh
16:34:44 <bay|AX|Aniplex> i know some of you have already gl somehow and some of you not...
16:34:49 <bay|AX|Aniplex> so ... q&a..
16:35:03 <bay|AX|Aniplex> we have... a gift for you if you ask a question... a GOOD question (emphasis toshi)
16:35:34 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: are there any plans to consider the parallel works?
16:36:03 <bay|AX|Aniplex> a: thats a question of whether bandai is willing to pay for it and.... negotiating all the copyrights...
16:36:21 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: core drill necklace extra?
16:36:29 <bay|AX|Aniplex> a: i want to stay away from tshirts... we will see what we can come up with
16:36:44 <bay|AX|Aniplex> "glasses won't fit in the box... if we want to do it right"
16:36:54 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: special features on the dvds?
16:37:16 <bay|AX|Aniplex> a: trying to get as much as possible as far as bonus features... commentary is always time and money considerations but we will try to load as many extras onto the disc as possible
16:37:31 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: for episode 6... which one will be there?
16:37:56 <bay|AX|Aniplex> a: sci-fi will air the tv version of ep 6, the subtitled dvd release includes the dvd version.. and the bilingual version will contain both
16:38:19 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: is aniplex involved in the creation or licensing of the gurren lagann manga and any attempts to bring that over?
16:38:25 <bay|AX|Aniplex> a: talking about it with bandai.. so hopefully...
16:38:38 <bay|AX|Aniplex> bandai: we're hoping for it.. as are the other publishing companies so we'll see
16:39:04 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: why did you choose (see-mon) instead of (si-mon)
16:39:17 <bay|AX|Aniplex> a: we tried to be true to the japanese and also we also consulted with the creators (gainax)
16:39:32 <bay|AX|Aniplex> so that was everyone's consensus... for the names and everything that needed to be spelled...
16:39:42 <bay|AX|Aniplex> gainax and aniplex and all the production companies
16:40:00 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: why is tengen toppa not in the name anymore
16:40:04 <bay|AX|Aniplex> a: you tell me a good translation of tengen toppa
16:40:27 <bay|AX|Aniplex> everyone says "pierce through the heavens but tengen means.... (describes something)", but to call it the most common translation, i find it incorrect...
16:40:39 <bay|AX|Aniplex> "we thought about leaving it but... yea..."
16:41:04 <bay|AX|Aniplex> if you can't come up with it, we should just leave it off instead of leaving the japanese... since leaving the japanese can get confusing
16:41:08 <bay|AX|Aniplex> i wish there was one word we could say for the source of all life
16:41:30 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: for kara no kyokai.. the art style is familiar.. .is it related to typemoon...
16:41:31 <bay|AX|Aniplex> a: yes
16:41:40 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: are you selling subtitle only for kara no kyokai...
16:42:00 <bay|AX|Aniplex> er..... was this question misunderstood... i didn't get the answer at alll
16:42:05 <bay|AX|Aniplex> it didn't seem to match up...
16:42:32 <bay|AX|Aniplex> "licensing talks are not finished yet" is what ive been told was the answer
16:43:16 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: are you going to pause for the ...second.. season
16:43:20 <bay|AX|Aniplex> a: no.. we're going to push on through
16:43:34 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: are you planning on having it air on tv?
16:43:46 <bay|AX|Aniplex> a: sci-fi tv... 2 eps/week mondays...
16:43:52 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: how many dvds....
16:44:07 <bay|AX|Aniplex> a: 3 subtitled, 6 bilingual... bilingual starting in.. november (uncertainty on that date)
16:44:27 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: would you ever consider the series to be done in blu-ray?
16:44:32 <bay|AX|Aniplex> a: sure we would consider it...
16:44:54 <bay|AX|Aniplex> if the masters are available in hi-def... but most of these were not made in hi-def.. maybe the movie...
16:45:00 <bay|AX|Aniplex> aniplex: maybe they will be released in japan in hi-def...
16:45:03 <bay|AX|Aniplex> for the movie
16:45:19 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: how close is sekirei anime to the manga?
16:45:32 <bay|AX|Aniplex> a: its quite close... but we have to make the tv series to be 13 eps...
16:45:40 <bay|AX|Aniplex> (talking about specific points which i couldn't catch)
16:46:30 <bay|AX|Aniplex> q: any plans for the gurren lagann movies?
16:46:46 <bay|AX|Aniplex> ( ....the japanese guy seems to indicate 3)
16:46:49 <bay|AX|Aniplex> (the other indicates 2 back)
16:47:09 <bay|AX|Aniplex> a: wait for the official announcement
16:47:15 <bay|AX|Aniplex> and now they are going to show the gurren lagann parallel works
16:48:29 <bay|AX|Aniplex> (the one with the pachinko macchine)
16:53:18 <bay|AX|Aniplex> lastly....
16:53:27 <bay|AX|Aniplex> id like for tony to say the gurren tag line... and you guys say yea...
16:53:51 <bay|AX|Aniplex> "okay bozos team gurren move out" "yea"
16:54:14 <bay|AX|Aniplex> kittan christopher smith
16:54:24 <bay|AX|Aniplex> kiyoh karen strassman
16:54:27 <bay|AX|Aniplex> kinnon stephanie sheh
16:54:33 <bay|AX|Aniplex> kiyal gk bowes
16:55:30 <bay|AX|Aniplex> end (Getting a clarification on kara no kyokai question)
16:58:50 <bay|AX|Aniplex> (clarification: negotiations are in progesss for kara no kyokai)
16:59:34 <bay|AX|Aniplex> (and to expect an announcement soon... it is taking a while because it is a 7 part movie and not 1 work)
Updates: Corrected dub actors names.
Notes: None
