Unedited Feed from the Bandai Entertainment panel at New York Comic Con 2011. Transcription: bayoab
Note: ( ) is usually commenting on the panel and was not said.

10:37:15 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> (And the internet wants to work today, horray)
10:38:17 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> (If I was on the other side of the panel room, the internet wouldn't work that well, go figure)
10:42:24 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> Thank you for being here so early in the morning
10:42:28 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> Robert Napton director of marketing
10:42:37 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> Loy Fruel Marketing and Production
10:42:42 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> Ken Iyadomi, President and CEO
10:42:53 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> We're going to drive right in so we have plenty of time for Q&A
10:43:03 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> First, Bandai e-commerce store
10:43:25 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> good destination for those hard to find single dvds, and we do a lot of exclusives and lots of sales, we'll be doing a crazy holiday sale soon
10:43:36 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> store.bandai-ent.com
10:43:48 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> Mobile Suit Gundam UC Episode 4
10:43:54 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> 12.2.2011
10:44:00 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> $59.98
10:44:29 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> as soon as they arrive, we're going to bring up some guests from the english production
10:44:35 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> trailer
10:46:14 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> (NYCC events)
10:46:38 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> at the end of today's screening of 3, we're going to have a little preview of 4
10:46:52 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
10:46:56 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> available now on BD and DVD
10:47:07 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> DVD and combo pack
10:47:15 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> trailer
10:48:27 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> (Strange noise in the audio track in this room)
10:48:31 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> K-ON
10:48:36 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> vols 1-3 available now
10:48:40 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> vol 4 11.22.2011
10:49:06 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> trailer
10:49:21 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> (how many times have i seen these trailers this year?)
10:49:41 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> (endless eight, con version?)
10:50:24 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> Sacred Seven
10:50:31 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> entire show available on hulu and crunchyroll
10:51:00 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> (that strange noise is actually not in the audio but just happens to be strangely sync'd to the audio)
10:51:04 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> trailer
10:52:38 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> so we're going to back in time
10:52:45 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> to Gundam Unicorn
10:53:00 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> because Michael Sinternikalas and Stephanie Sheh are here
10:53:04 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> (never going to spell his name right)
10:53:22 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> so unicorn 4 is coming out in decemeber
10:53:33 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> actually had the pleasure of going to one of the recording sessions
10:53:46 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> and i have tremendous new respect for the work for doing a simultaneous worldwide release
10:53:51 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> so can you talk about that process
10:54:19 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> M: It's kinda unique, it's extraordinary, appropriately so since GU is a extraordinary title
10:54:36 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> as you heard, this is a simultaneous, global, interplanatary release
10:55:08 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> this one is a great episode, episode 3 is building for ep 4 which blows up all over your face
10:55:20 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> the thing about earth is, it's hard to draw than space
10:55:28 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> space you do dots and boom, so earth requires drawing
10:55:37 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> and since we were doing it simultaneously, things got pushed back
10:55:51 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> and because it's gundam, anytime you get tired, you look at stuff and you get inspired again
10:55:57 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> (See the NDK panel for more details on the pushback)
10:56:13 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> I've started growing a gundam beard every time we work on one of these shows
10:56:25 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> and i let that go, and i can tell how long by looking at my face
10:56:29 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> but it's fun, because it's gundam
10:56:34 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> i hope i clarified something for somebody
10:56:49 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> R: And i remember we were talking about logistics, you said you hadn't slept in 3 days
10:56:55 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> so you want to talk about your character
10:56:59 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> M: or your gundam beard
10:57:08 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> S: Micheal said it all... i think robert was there....
10:57:12 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> R: No, i was ther eto see the magic
10:57:24 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> S; It wasn't magical, it was stuffy and hot and everyone was like uhhhh
10:57:36 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> R: I videotaped it, i might uploadew it
10:57:43 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> M: we try to mimic the stuffy conditions of a cockpit
10:58:00 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> R: Touch on bright noa, because for people my age, he's a big deal, because he's back,and you got a chance to cast him
10:58:08 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> so can you talk about who you picked ....
10:58:41 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> S: We handled it like any other edition, except aware going into the casting process that there was buzz about it
10:58:57 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> and i know with unicorn castin g, a lot of people in general were like, are you going to bring back people who voiced character s in the past
10:59:34 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> at a lot of time those actors were not in a physical location, like recording in LA or NY, or other times, we would talk to sunrise and have a discussion and find out if it was really necccesary, but there is so much time that has past, so some of the actors have aged more the charactef
10:59:46 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> so that played a factor into getting the people
10:59:54 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> so we have Christopher smith voicing bright noa
11:00:06 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> (that is the censored line from NDK)
11:00:24 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> So now we will return to whhere we left off
11:00:28 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> Tales of the Abyss
11:00:35 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> vol 1 available now, comes with asch the bloody manga
11:00:39 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> trailer
11:02:01 <bay|NYCC|Bandai> so..yea.. tales of the abyss... we also have the manga
