|Unedited Feed from the Anime News Network Panel at New York Anime Festival 2010. Transcription: bayoab
Note: ( ) is usually commenting on the panel and was not said.
12:09:08 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (1 hr starts here)
12:14:59 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Welcome to the ANN panel.
12:15:07 <bay|NYAF|ANN> You might get something cool.. or something not so cool...
12:15:23 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Mike Toole, from the internet, been writing about anime since 1996...
12:16:00 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (going over his long and extensive background)
12:17:17 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Erin Finnegan... joined ANN last year, took over bamboo's column
12:17:29 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (going over her background)
12:18:43 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Todd Selick(?), writes the xbutton
13:00:25 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Gia Manry
12:19:51 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (background)
12:20:06 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (No other ANN people are here, expect no comment on what you are mostly watching for)
12:20:13 <bay|NYAF|ANN> going into Q&A
12:20:14 <bay|NYAF|ANN> disclaimer
12:20:32 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Justin and Chris are in a meeting, and they are the only one who could answer questions technical and video related.
12:21:49 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (So unable to take any questions related to any recent controversies, since they are editorial and writers)
12:22:35 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q: What is your sites thing for the future? A: Chris and Justin were going to talk about that, I dunno....
12:22:45 <bay|NYAF|ANN> We've got a full slate of columns right now.
12:22:51 <bay|NYAF|ANN> And we did the redesign.
12:23:41 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (They just said they want competition;....)
12:25:13 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q; Favorite miyazaki movies....
12:25:40 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q: How you prevent getting burned out?
12:26:20 <bay|NYAF|ANN> A: Intersperse anime viewings with other stuff...
12:26:26 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Watch stuff from different eras...
12:27:28 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q: How do I become a reviewer...
12:27:35 <bay|NYAF|ANN> A: Get a blog and start writing and talking to others
12:28:56 <bay|NYAF|ANN> And do something new... not just the latest anime that 10000s of blogs already do....
12:30:09 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q: Hardest titles to review....
12:30:19 <bay|NYAF|ANN> A: The middle ones ....
12:30:37 <bay|NYAF|ANN> The offensive stuff....
12:33:22 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q; Reviews or news on japanese entertainment on stuff that has no link to anime
12:33:37 <bay|NYAF|ANN> A: No idea what Chris and Justin are planning....
12:33:52 <bay|NYAF|ANN> More coverage of that stuff is needed, but trying to get it into ANN would be too difficult...
12:36:50 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q: Find your job getting repetitive? What would you write about if it wasn't anime?
12:36:59 <bay|NYAF|ANN> A: Yes, it does...
12:39:27 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q: Licensing beyond simulcasting and isn't simulcasting a conflict of interest?
12:39:35 <bay|NYAF|ANN> A: Can't answer the first part.
12:39:53 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Whether it is a conflict of interest, was it you who asked at the CR panel? ... We did put up a poll asking if the users wanted.
12:40:03 <bay|NYAF|ANN> I guess that affects me (Erin) alot since I'm watching the streaming stuff.
12:40:17 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Since they don't really edit my stuff in any way, I don't think it's a conflict of interest.
12:41:04 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (Mike) As far as writing stuff that we're simulcasting, I won't do it. But for about 2 years, I wrote about spec for Geneon and for those 2 years, wouldn't review anything for them.
12:41:11 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Doing websites for them..
12:41:38 <bay|NYAF|ANN> It's an interesting subject.....I can tell you, looking back, when newtype usa first launched, there was one thing that made me write it off which was that there was an ADV films title reviewed by an ADV films employee..
12:42:32 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (Gia) I'm confident in my ability (to write a neutral review) but that is all moot if the readers don't trust my review.
12:45:00 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q: Does what you mentioned in Newtype USA happen in Japan?
12:45:29 <bay|NYAF|ANN> A: The relationship in the Japanese press and the publishers is very close and influential, compared to the independent status of the america. I wouldn't be surprised if it's similar to Famitsu...
12:46:25 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (Mike) If you look at newtype japan, animage, animedia, and you don't see shows, they are either bad or they aren't buying ads or they are controversial
12:47:29 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (Tim) SO what you saw in Newtype USA was similar in the Japanese version.
12:48:09 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (Mike) But that does happen to a certain point in print (another example from a magazine which elevates reviews)
12:48:24 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (Erin) (Talks about JP press conferences)
12:48:57 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (Gia) Doing press conferences with JP guests... especially musical guests... always fun...
12:48:50 <bay|NYAF|ANN> they don't answer much
12:49:33 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q: ANN getting into e-manga publishing when it becomes viable? A: Chris and Justin question...
12:51:11 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q: Trends that people are sick of....
12:57:21 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q: Favorite dubs...
12:58:47 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q: Mentioned that youtube piracy cut down on DVDs published in the US, same in Japan?
12:59:01 <bay|NYAF|ANN> A; In japan, there are still CD chain stores... piracy is a problem in Japan... but hard media still does a lot better there.
13:02:46 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q: What language you watch for reviews...
13:03:22 <bay|NYAF|ANN> Q: Have you seen Panty & Stocking and thoughts on it?
13:05:38 <bay|NYAF|ANN> (Cutting off due to internet about to die)
