16:36:50 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q&A
16:37:06 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Shiki release next year was confirmed...does that include the Japanese DVD release eps... the .5 ones
16:37:19 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: Believe so.... but will have to go and double check
16:38:48 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Darker than black is a classic?
16:38:53 <bay|AB|FUNi> A; for its genre, it is
16:39:01 <bay|AB|FUNi> for some genres, they aren't really classic genres but it's what fits
16:39:13 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Any plans to get back Sailor Moon?
16:39:32 <bay|AB|FUNi> A; We want it, we want it bad... we haven't got it yet..
16:39:52 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q; How is the noitaminA deal going for you guys?
16:40:10 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: noitaminA is doing great for us....
16:40:39 <bay|AB|FUNi> we started doing very strongly with it... and not saying it isn't doing strong now... but the amount of resources it takes to do these is factored in to how many we can do at a time
16:40:47 <bay|AB|FUNi> and the ones that we pick up, they aren't a package deal
16:41:17 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Why did CN drop anime?
16:41:35 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: It's their decision based on what they want to program
16:41:50 <bay|AB|FUNi> go bug them, they hear the feedback, they have forums
16:42:07 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Sam Jackson as Garterbelt?
16:42:09 <bay|AB|FUNi> A; Would be awesome
16:42:24 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Had heard that you had licensed Railgun, but having trouble finding information on it on your website
16:42:44 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: Railgun... we had a materials delay on getting it.. we weren't allowed to work on it much later... not even sure if we started working on it
16:42:50 <bay|AB|FUNi> we dont have a release date yet
16:42:55 <bay|AB|FUNi> we're excited to start working on it
16:43:26 <bay|AB|FUNi> It's a bit confusing as some things come out 5 months after announce...and then others we sign it and then it's months before we get materials
16:43:43 <bay|AB|FUNi> the best thing to do so you don't start hunting is to subscribe to our newslletter or subscribe to the blog
16:43:52 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Any timetable on Strike witches s2 or spice and wolf s2
16:44:00 <bay|AB|FUNi> Spice and wolf s2 is summer...
16:44:05 <bay|AB|FUNi> later this year for SW S2
16:44:22 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: rescuing 4kids series?
16:44:29 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: we haven't even looked at that yet since they are in limbo
16:44:30 <bay|AB|FUNi> it was news to us
16:44:36 <bay|AB|FUNi> we learned about it when all you did
16:44:59 <bay|AB|FUNi> they might retain it.. someone else might grab it, it might be sent in court... if it goes back to japan, we'll look
16:45:36 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: New Kenshin? A: We'd love to have it
16:45:49 <bay|AB|FUNi> the details aren't even announced yet
16:46:11 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q; Same cast as original A: Not even going to speculate that
16:46:23 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: mass effect anime for dubbing?
16:46:36 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: we haven't put out additional info, we're working with EA and Bioware to hammer out details
16:46:40 <bay|AB|FUNi> stay tuned
16:47:01 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Negima OADs?
16:47:19 <bay|AB|FUNi> A: Right now, we're aware of them, but they are on one of the could pick up lists...
16:47:51 <bay|AB|FUNi> Q: Fairy Tail... first 48 episodes.... offered or decided to start with 48?
