09:19:22 <bay|AX|PIG> (Audience reaction is generally mixed)
09:19:28 <bay|AX|PIG> Just to talk about a little about what i've been doing
09:19:39 <bay|AX|PIG> I used to do licensing but now, not so much anymore because the Japanese rights holders can do it themselves
09:19:46 <bay|AX|PIG> but recently you know, ive licensed utena to rightstuf
09:19:54 <bay|AX|PIG> and they should be releasing it soon or..
09:20:05 <bay|AX|PIG> and the other one that hey just announced is martian successor nadesico series and movies
09:20:13 <bay|AX|PIG> and other than licensing, what i do is...nothing... no i do a lot of stuff
09:20:19 <bay|AX|PIG> i do a lot of coproduction developmental stuff
09:20:38 <bay|AX|PIG> i'm busy but there is no money...
09:20:58 <bay|AX|PIG> (had to lay off the helper and do it alone)
09:21:17 <bay|AX|PIG> what i do in terms of coproduction is stuff like the recent "The Innocent" comic book by Avi Arad
09:21:48 <bay|AX|PIG> And the comic book is being released by Yen Press
09:22:00 <bay|AX|PIG> and if you guys go there, I think they are distributing 10k complementary copies of it
09:22:10 <bay|AX|PIG> and I also brought these big monthly comics and it's seralized in here
09:22:20 <bay|AX|PIG> and it's in blade published by our sister company
09:22:24 <bay|AX|PIG> and there are 6 issues and i brought 5
09:22:32 <bay|AX|PIG> but you guys can't read it anyway so who cares
09:22:43 <bay|AX|PIG> but if you go to comic con, avi will be there..
09:23:06 <bay|AX|PIG> and the reason i'm saying that ... is we were able to share it with nicolas cage and sam raimi and stan lee...and they gave us beautiful comments which i'll share with you
09:23:25 <bay|AX|PIG> (not going to be able to copy these down... she's reading the comments)
09:24:30 <bay|AX|PIG> we also have the french version which also came out before the english ...(booo says the audience)
09:25:03 <bay|AX|PIG> it's 9:30 and i have a lot of give aways
09:25:22 <bay|AX|PIG> oh..sorry.. the innocent.. right now, avi is thinking of making this into a live action movie...
09:25:25 <bay|AX|PIG> audience : do it
09:25:29 <bay|AX|PIG> do it? but you don't even know the story
09:25:37 <bay|AX|PIG> and we're thinking of making it into an animated movie
09:25:55 <bay|AX|PIG> but not sure with who
09:26:14 <bay|AX|PIG> go read it on yenpress's site and let me know what you think
09:26:55 <bay|AX|PIG> oh..and oblivion island...
09:27:07 <bay|AX|PIG> we are still in negotiations with the distributor
09:27:17 <bay|AX|PIG> we're so close to closing the deal but unforuntately we couldn't close it
09:27:21 <bay|AX|PIG> hopefully by otakon or sdcc
09:28:49 <bay|AX|PIG> (now showing some clips from oblivion island)

09:36:33 <bay|AX|PIG> Q: Why did production i.g. decide to adapt usagi drop as an anime? A; i think it's a very popular manga so they wanted to make it into an animation and they came to us and the money was good
09:37:10 <bay|AX|PIG> Q: noticed oblivion island was like little big planet... ? A; not sure ...this thing too like forever to make... you know how it's so hard when you draw a cute character by hand on paper, but when you convert that into 3d, it looks scary
09:37:25 <bay|AX|PIG> it took one year just to come up with the 3d design of the main character
09:37:41 <bay|AX|PIG> i'm sure they saw other references and all that, i'm sure they were inpsired by that, but i'm not sure if they were particularly inspired about that...
09:37:58 <bay|AX|PIG> Q: Any more Tsubasa OVAs?

09:46:20 <bay|AX|PIG> Q: Big fan of the blood series....and it's about blood gore and kicking ass...but that's not what you think about with Clamp...
09:46:28 <bay|AX|PIG> with the new series, will it do it justice with the blood and gore
09:46:41 <bay|AX|PIG> A: There will be blood and gore, Clamp is writing the story
09:47:08 <bay|AX|PIG> Q: Manga of eden of the east?

09:51:09 <bay|AX|PIG> Q: Any other con plans for the year?
09:51:14 <bay|AX|PIG> A: Talk to me about it
09:51:22 <bay|AX|PIG> I should start bringing those people over here
09:51:37 <bay|AX|PIG> It's really hard... Oshii won't come.. Shirow won't
09:51:55 <bay|AX|PIG> Q: How do you decide on what cities for theatrical releases?
09:52:12 <bay|AX|PIG> A: Up to the distributor... going to be all limited release unless it's a hollywood
