13:31:36 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Q: With Tales of the Abyss, why is it subtitled only?
13:32:00 <bay|NDK|Bandai> A: We've been putting a lot of things subtitled only. We want to dub as much as we can, but truth is sales have been declining slowly for DVDs, so we can't dub everything
13:32:14 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Q: Bringing more stuff to the US?
13:32:20 <bay|NDK|Bandai> A; Do you mean new stuff or catalog?
13:32:44 <bay|NDK|Bandai> (this question is confusing)
13:33:03 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Q: Releasing double zeta gundam and x?
13:33:10 <bay|NDK|Bandai> A: We want to release all the gundam we can, but right now, now plans for either.
13:33:27 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Q: A lot of companies have been doing rescue. Is bandai going to stick to new stuff or going to rescue stuff?
13:33:34 <bay|NDK|Bandai> A: we look at it title by title.
13:33:38 <bay|NDK|Bandai> no plans right now but may change
13:33:45 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Q: Akira re-release... which dub?
13:33:58 <bay|NDK|Bandai> A: Unfortunately, we're not allowed to release the streamline dub in america, so it will include the pioneer one
13:34:15 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Q: Voice actors for Bright Noa for Ep 4?
13:34:20 <bay|NDK|Bandai> A; Can't answer that.
13:34:26 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Q: Dub for nichijou/gosick?
13:34:31 <bay|NDK|Bandai> A: Hasn't been decided.
13:34:35 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Q: Turn A gundam dubbbed?
13:34:37 <bay|NDK|Bandai> A: Sub only
13:34:47 <bay|NDK|Bandai> plan to release it in 4 parts i think, first part should be this year
13:35:05 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Want to say probably december
13:35:07 <bay|NDK|Bandai> (someone pressed him on it)
13:35:19 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Q: is bandai planning to license more .hack series?
13:35:30 <bay|NDK|Bandai> A: Currently no plans to at this point.
13:35:47 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Q: Finish up older titles like Banner of the Stars series?

13:36:44 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Q: Why isn't ttgl on bluray?
13:36:48 <bay|NDK|Bandai> A; Ask aniplex
13:37:07 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Q: Are you distributing madoka for aniplex?
13:37:22 <bay|NDK|Bandai> A: Us and rightstuf will be distributing Madoka
13:37:54 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Q: What's the logic behind the blu-ray DVD combo
13:38:11 <bay|NDK|Bandai> A: That's a good question, a lot of major titles have been doing it. It seems to be working for them and we're trying to follow it
13:38:17 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Obviously your bluray can play DVD
13:38:26 <bay|NDK|Bandai> but some take the DVD on the road
13:38:52 <bay|NDK|Bandai> Q: Notice that Bandai is still doing singles... a lot of the other companies are doing series or half series, are you going to move into doing that
13:39:08 <bay|NDK|Bandai> A; A lot of that is title by title, that depends on the licensors in Japan somewhat
13:39:26 <bay|NDK|Bandai> we're trying to move to half season sets
13:39:44 <bay|NDK|Bandai> If you have any other questions, I'll be around. Thank you for coming.
