19:56:48 <bay|AX|FUNi> funimation special guest
19:56:48 <bay|AX|FUNi> bring up to answer a few questions.... vp of licensing and acquisitions
19:56:49 <bay|AX|FUNi> adam zainer
19:56:49 <bay|AX|FUNi> (sp? on last name)
19:56:58 <bay|AX|FUNi> hello anime expo people
19:57:59 <bay|AX|FUNi> what's up with the geneon titles?
19:57:59 <bay|AX|FUNi> like tenchi and black lagoon
19:57:59 <bay|AX|FUNi> the good news...we like... we expect it to come very soon.. as some of you know, there were some changes at geneon
19:57:59 <bay|AX|FUNi> more updates soon...
19:57:59 <bay|AX|FUNi> they will be coming soon....
19:58:21 <bay|AX|FUNi> can you talk about the shows that aren't getting renewed and the ones that are
19:58:45 <bay|AX|FUNi> although we haven't posted a list recently, we will soon, we're trying to bring as many as we can, but not all of them will nmake it into our catalog, but we'll try and bring as many of them as we can
19:58:55 <bay|AX|FUNi> how has licensing industry changed over the past years?
19:59:15 <bay|AX|FUNi> It's changed quite a bit, there are some new players, there are players that hvae left the market, you've seen a lot of changes with how people are consuming the content
19:59:20 <bay|AX|FUNi> on the good side, we get more feedback from the fans now
19:59:40 <bay|AX|FUNi> i would say one of the biggest changes would be the rights, we're trying to get as much legal free anime to you as we can
20:00:02 <bay|AX|FUNi> i think at the end of the day, the similarity is that japan is putting out great content and we're trying to get as much as we can
20:00:24 <bay|AX|FUNi> as the guy who goes to japan and spends hundreds of thousands or howeever much to get series, how did you get this job?
20:00:56 <bay|AX|FUNi> when i was in college, i did acting, playwriting and asian studies... i actually lived in japan for 6 years... came back and was trying to figure out what to do...
20:01:38 <bay|AX|FUNi> got a call from the japan america society..got a call from nabeshin needing an interpreter...at that point, met funi...not knowing they were in dallas
20:02:20 <bay|AX|FUNi> when i first sent in my resume... it had been a long night .. i got a phone call in the morning... and i didn't answer, and my dad did....and said he was still asleep... called back...
20:02:35 <bay|AX|FUNi> turns out gen was the one who called him...
20:02:56 <bay|AX|FUNi> (the president of funimation)
20:02:59 <bay|AX|FUNi> went in and got the job
20:03:35 <bay|AX|FUNi> ....so....hope i'm not stealing their otakon thunder
20:03:38 <bay|AX|FUNi> we actually... just now finished two more acquisitions
20:03:43 <bay|AX|FUNi> there are two more shows that i can tell you about
20:03:53 <bay|AX|FUNi> sorry otakon, we'll try to get more
20:03:58 <bay|AX|FUNi> does anyone know chaos head
20:04:00 <bay|AX|FUNi> steins gate..
20:04:13 <bay|AX|FUNi> we're vey excited to tell you that we will be bringing that to the US
20:04:15 <bay|AX|FUNi> and also one of my favorites...
20:04:22 <bay|AX|FUNi> deadman wonderland
20:04:33 <bay|AX|FUNi> soon we will be able to bring you that...
20:04:38 <bay|AX|FUNi> great shows.. we're excited to bring that to you
20:05:02 <bay|AX|FUNi> that's it for our panel, and we have one min left... so we have no time for q&a
20:05:04 <bay|AX|FUNi> we also have lance with us
20:05:37 <bay|AX|FUNi> thank you
20:05:37 <bay|AX|FUNi> we'll be outside answering questions
