Unedited Feed from the JAST USA panel at Anime Expo 2011. Transcription: bayoab
Note: ( ) is usually commenting on the panel and was not said.

22:32:20 <bay|AX|JAST> (Jast has a massive line)
22:32:31 <bay|AX|JAST> (Here comes room clear chaos)
22:39:03 <bay|AX|JAST> (And it wasn't chaotic for once!)
22:41:07 <bay|AX|JAST> (JAST is 18+)
22:46:41 <bay|AX|JAST> (They are turning people away from the end of the line)
22:56:33 <bay|AX|JAST> (Now bringing in the line)
22:58:44 <bay|AX|JAST> (Giving out soft cover dues machina demonbane illustration books)
23:02:54 <bay|AX|JAST> (500 something lucky people are going to get in)
23:05:42 <bay|AX|JAST> PPT: Welcome to the JAST USA Anime Expo 2011 Visual Novels Panel
23:08:52 <bay|AX|JAST> (Still loading the room row by row)
23:15:35 <bay|AX|JAST> Looks like we can get started
23:15:53 <bay|AX|JAST> I see all kinds of things raised out there
23:16:12 <bay|AX|JAST> All right, without further ado, welcome to the JAST USA panel
23:16:19 <bay|AX|JAST> Some of us have things we typically do on saturday nights
23:16:33 <bay|AX|JAST> this is recognition that on some saturday nights, we just want to immerse ourself in some game...
23:16:48 <bay|AX|JAST> we have a lot to talk about tonight
23:16:53 <bay|AX|JAST> we've been really busy this past year and leading up to the con
23:16:59 <bay|AX|JAST> and one thing i want to say before we get started
23:17:32 <bay|AX|JAST> and you can stop by the booth to get by the games and the catalog with newly minted posters on the back
23:17:44 <bay|AX|JAST> and our booth is 819
23:17:52 <bay|AX|JAST> let's get things started
23:17:54 <bay|AX|JAST> who are we?
23:17:57 <bay|AX|JAST> we are jast usa
23:18:04 <bay|AX|JAST> we've been around for about 13-14 years
23:18:20 <bay|AX|JAST> did our 10th celebration about 4 years ago....
23:18:27 <bay|AX|JAST> we've been around for a long time, bringing you games from japan translated into english
23:18:45 <bay|AX|JAST> (brands:nitro+, jast densetsu, peach princess, gcollections)
23:18:51 <bay|AX|JAST> we're proud to bring demonbane
23:19:02 <bay|AX|JAST> jast densetsu is for a new tier of games that we've been able to get
23:19:09 <bay|AX|JAST> of high quality games
23:19:26 <bay|AX|JAST> we're going to refocus peach princess to ecchi sexy in your face erotica type of game
23:19:35 <bay|AX|JAST> so from now on, please enjoy peach princess
23:19:55 <bay|AX|JAST> gcollection is something we inherited from another company and has entered it's retired period
23:20:18 <bay|AX|JAST> we have everything released for that one so the brand is retired
23:20:19 <bay|AX|JAST> when we saw you last...
23:20:29 <bay|AX|JAST> raidgII and downhill night 2
23:20:38 <bay|AX|JAST> one is a yuri lesbian rpg and the other is a downhill drift racing game
23:20:44 <bay|AX|JAST> wnat to bring them up before they fade into the back catalog
23:20:53 <bay|AX|JAST> so what have we been up to for the past year
23:20:55 <bay|AX|JAST> 2010-2011
23:20:56 <bay|AX|JAST> a year in eroge
23:20:59 <bay|AX|JAST> we have two new games for you this year...
23:22:56 <bay|AX|JAST> Deus Machina Demonbane
23:22:59 <bay|AX|JAST> (trailer just showed)
23:23:10 <bay|AX|JAST> and after 2 long years, it's on sale
23:23:10 <bay|AX|JAST> as of this may
23:23:20 <bay|AX|JAST> this is a game that is the first game we've released in partnership with nitro+
23:23:31 <bay|AX|JAST> known for steins gate and one of their famous writers wrote the scenario from madoka magica
23:23:37 <bay|AX|JAST> we're really psyched to be working with them
23:24:15 <bay|AX|JAST> and demonbane, on the back of the box it is called a melodramatic, [lost] inspired adventure...
23:24:22 <bay|AX|JAST> other new game we have is gone under the radar a bit
23:24:38 <bay|AX|JAST> it's going to be a series of game that pair choice point selection with arcade game
23:24:43 <bay|AX|JAST> the first one is Yuri all girls game
23:24:45 <bay|AX|JAST> escalation Yukkuri panic
23:24:55 <bay|AX|JAST> takes place in a catholic girls school
23:25:24 <bay|AX|JAST> both games are on the same disc and both have the same characters but different story lines
23:25:29 <bay|AX|JAST> going to give you a couple minutes of gameplay up next
23:27:19 <bay|AX|JAST> (you block off areas to clear the screen to win)
23:27:23 <bay|AX|JAST> and obviously... this is the pg version...
23:27:47 <bay|AX|JAST> next thing is stuff in progress that we've talked about before
23:27:48 <bay|AX|JAST> downhill night blaze is the 3rd in the downhill series
23:27:51 <bay|AX|JAST> the first one had racing with timed choice points
23:28:05 <bay|AX|JAST> this one actually puts you in the drivers seat and lets you race on the track
23:29:01 <bay|AX|JAST> the reason this has been in the works for a while is the earthquake that happened in japan caused the company that owned this to disolve
23:28:29 <bay|AX|JAST> so we have this in the hands of other capable programmers
23:28:45 <bay|AX|JAST> and we're going to resolve the issues with the 3d which is giving us headaches... hope to have it out this year
23:30:51 <bay|AX|JAST> Jast densetsu brand...
23:30:55 <bay|AX|JAST> Yumina the ethereal
23:31:20 <bay|AX|JAST> we've been working on it for a while, nearing compeltion.. we have the translation complete, we have some dedicated folks doing the translation and image editing the 4000 images in this game
23:31:27 <bay|AX|JAST> think we're going to have a release this year for it as well
23:31:42 <bay|AX|JAST> it's a great rpg that starts out in school and migrates to a fantasy land
23:31:52 <bay|AX|JAST> going to have a lot more information about it soon
23:32:01 <bay|AX|JAST> 2011 new announcements
23:32:10 <bay|AX|JAST> as you can see, we have two new games for you this year
23:32:25 <bay|AX|JAST> this may seem like a small amount because we spent last fall and this spring talking with companies about new titles
23:32:47 <bay|AX|JAST> right now i'm going to go over ones we've anouncd earlier in the year online
23:32:53 <bay|AX|JAST> School Days HQ
23:34:58 <bay|AX|JAST> this one doesn't need a whole lot of introduction
23:35:09 <bay|AX|JAST> think you all heard of the nice boat which was what was aired in place of the end of the anime
23:35:17 <bay|AX|JAST> this is the game the anime is based on, the game is fully animated
23:35:39 <bay|AX|JAST> it also contains content that wasn't in the original school days, higher resolution, and will be offered remastered, uncensored
23:35:52 <bay|AX|JAST> JAST densetsu brand

23:38:20 <bay|AX|JAST> trailer for next one... forget proper name...

23:47:13 <bay|AX|JAST> now new stuff
23:47:17 <bay|AX|JAST> coming attractions: nitro+
23:47:33 <bay|AX|JAST> excited to present the new titles we'll be working on with nitro+
23:47:37 <bay|AX|JAST> so... first off...
23:47:51 <bay|AX|JAST> (Scenario Gen Urobuchi)
23:50:26 <bay|AX|JAST> Song of Saya [Saya no Uta]
23:50:26 <bay|AX|JAST> as you can see..this is a bit of different flavor story
23:50:26 <bay|AX|JAST> one of the most famous nitro+ games
23:50:27 <bay|AX|JAST> about a man who is in a terrible traffic audience
23:50:27 <bay|AX|JAST> only way to save his life is through brain surgery.....
23:50:29 <bay|AX|JAST> and afterwards, he is only able to see the world as gore.. and then saya appears and appears pure
23:50:46 <bay|AX|JAST> if you take demonbane and condence the dark stuff, it's that in essence
23:50:59 <bay|AX|JAST> we're going to be working on all these projects with tlwiki translation group
23:51:11 <bay|AX|JAST> and they already did the t/l so we'll have this for you soon
23:51:32 <bay|AX|JAST> and as an important footnote, it's by the person who wrote madoka magica
23:51:57 <bay|AX|JAST> next... Kikokugai
23:53:33 <bay|AX|JAST> Kikokugai - the cyber slayer
23:53:46 <bay|AX|JAST> the story of an assassin in a crime scene kit and a cyberpunk future
23:54:05 <bay|AX|JAST> also by Urobuchi Gen
23:54:34 <bay|AX|JAST> these are all so new that a lot of the details are being decided
23:54:51 <bay|AX|JAST> next... Hanachirasu
23:56:40 <bay|AX|JAST> another nitro+ game by a man driven by a desire for revenge
23:56:59 <bay|AX|JAST> alternate version of japan where japan lost via a long land war
23:57:21 <bay|AX|JAST> more new stuff...
23:57:43 <bay|AX|JAST> Star Mine Girl
23:59:13 <bay|AX|JAST> sumaga
23:59:29 <bay|AX|JAST> this is a different type of game for nitro+
23:59:38 <bay|AX|JAST> they are known for the gritty, hard edge
00:00:13 <bay|AX|JAST> this is about a guy who comes to his sense and he falls to his death and has amniedia, and god gives him the chance to keep on going until ge gets the world he wnats
00:00:52 <bay|AX|JAST> this is in progress, we'll probably be seeing it [next?] year
00:02:07 <bay|AX|JAST> Outlaw Django
00:02:10 <bay|AX|JAST> This is Nitro+ saying, just if you thought you had us figured out,
00:02:20 <bay|AX|JAST> we're going to troll you with a game that is a spaghetti western set on a futuristic science fiction planet, with 3 gorgeous girls as the leads, drawn by the guy who did demonbane
00:02:40 <bay|AX|JAST> with another scenario by the guy who did madoka just to say he isn't one or two or three or four or five trick pony
00:03:05 <bay|AX|JAST> This is produced as the visual novel version of a cinematic experience.
00:03:15 <bay|AX|JAST> It's wide screen, it feels like you're participating in a very odd scifi spaghetti western with a lot of sex in it. It's a fun one. And the last one we have from Nitro+ to you this evening.
00:04:23 <bay|AX|JAST> The sequel to excelia that we talked about earlier...
00:04:52 <bay|AX|JAST> from Jast densetsu brand
00:05:17 <bay|AX|JAST> (from part of missed with nitro+ regarding the other title to be put up later)
00:07:47 <bay|AX|JAST> seinarukana
00:08:26 <bay|AX|JAST> the spirit of eternity sword II
00:08:27 <bay|AX|JAST> epic dimension spanning rpg sequel
00:08:27 <bay|AX|JAST> this is a work in progress
00:08:27 <bay|AX|JAST> we're working on it with a great team of translators and graphics guys
00:08:27 <bay|AX|JAST> and we'll have this for you at some point in the future
00:08:39 <bay|AX|JAST> lastly, from peach princess...
00:08:44 <bay|AX|JAST> Starless
00:09:03 <bay|AX|JAST> is going to be the first game that establishes the new and clear direction of peach princess
00:09:15 <bay|AX|JAST> from creator of bible black and discipiline
00:09:40 <bay|AX|JAST> story of the guy who finds a wanted add in a magazine for a part time job..which is two weeks working aorund a mansion for nice money, when he gets there , he finds nyphos
00:09:57 <bay|AX|JAST> (...going back to the video....)
00:12:26 <bay|AX|JAST> as you can see, it lives up to its reputation, it's also long and it just came out in japan in may, and part of the licensing agreement says 1 year from release date
00:12:29 <bay|AX|JAST> so next year
00:12:39 <bay|AX|JAST> and one last thing...
00:12:45 <bay|AX|JAST> starry sky
00:12:55 <bay|AX|JAST> We are announcing for the first time that we are beginning the process of looking in to release the starry sky series of games
00:13:05 <bay|AX|JAST> this is a group of well regarded, very popular otome games with a female protagonist and male romancable antagonists

00:13:09 <bay|AX|JAST> this is an all ages series
00:13:16 <bay|AX|JAST> and it's a new direction for us in a number of ways
00:13:24 <bay|AX|JAST> we're approaching it differently
00:13:32 <bay|AX|JAST> we do want to bring this up as it's something we're excited to be working on, we'll have more information on this and how we'll be exploring the potential for these games in the future
00:13:42 <bay|AX|JAST> we'll set up a website that'll just feature these games
00:13:57 <bay|AX|JAST> finally.. thanks for coming
