Note: ( ) is usually commenting on the panel and was not said.

16:02:00 <bay|AX|CR> (CR in progress)
16:02:10 <bay|AX|CR> Q: Any plans for Android to get 720p
16:02:27 <bay|AX|CR> (missed answer)
16:02:55 <bay|AX|CR> Q: As the website progresses, is there something we won't expect, or is what we see now what we can expect in the future?
16:03:19 <bay|AX|CR> A: our goal is to be on more devices
16:03:32 <bay|AX|CR> and we want to add more features to the site
16:03:42 <bay|AX|CR> Q: I've seen lots of malfunctions and glitching in certain series...
16:03:52 <bay|AX|CR> A: If you are having issues, get in contact with our support
16:04:08 <bay|AX|CR> You can always email support or file a report
16:04:34 <bay|AX|CR> Q; How do you feel about fansubbers and fansubbers intentions of subbing anime that wouldn't be licensed otherwise?
16:04:45 <bay|AX|CR> A; we supposed fully licensed anime, we do our best to license 100% of the titles
16:04:49 <bay|AX|CR> I'd rather not comment on the fansubbers
16:05:07 <bay|AX|CR> Q; Why did you pick up Nise but not Bake?
16:05:16 <bay|AX|CR> A: Believe it or not sometimes you can get the second season but not the first...
16:05:24 <bay|AX|CR> we're always looking to do earlier seasons, sometimes we can't get everything clear in time
16:05:40 <bay|AX|CR> Q: Do you guys have any interest that hulu already has available?
16:06:17 <bay|AX|CR> A; It varies title by title, but if another service has it, it doesn't discourage us from getting it
16:06:36 <bay|AX|CR> (Skipping question)
16:07:11 <bay|AX|CR> Q: Add more english dubs?
16:07:46 <bay|AX|CR> A: In terms of dubbing, the timeline is a lot longer than subtitling, we wouldn't be able to simulcast a dub episode. As they become availabel, we add them to the site, our predominant focus is subtitles, most of the audience prefers subs
16:08:06 <bay|AX|CR> Q: Are there any plans to do any sort of cache on the app?
16:08:13 <bay|AX|CR> A; Like an offline mode? Not in discussion at this time.
16:08:18 <bay|AX|CR> Will look into it
16:08:30 <bay|AX|CR> Q: As for your summer lineup, it's grea
16:08:54 <bay|AX|CR> A while back you released 5cm/s on DVD
16:09:15 <bay|AX|CR> Do you guys think you will continue doing stuff like that
16:09:20 <bay|AX|CR> Releasing works you licensed on DVD?
16:09:27 <bay|AX|CR> A: 5cm was a special project
16:09:33 <bay|AX|CR> in the future we'll focus on simulcasts and streaming
16:09:42 <bay|AX|CR> we won't rule it out but our main focus is simulcasts
16:10:18 <bay|AX|CR> Q: Do you ever consider drama library to some jdrama? or even something like super sentai and kamen rider
16:10:24 <bay|AX|CR> A: We do have a few japanese live action
16:10:28 <bay|AX|CR> we just recently started that
16:10:39 <bay|AX|CR> the licensing is different and there are few more hurdles, but we'd love to have it on the site
16:10:50 <bay|AX|CR> Q: You only have the first season of pretty cure but there are 9, what happened?
16:10:55 <bay|AX|CR> A: we'll look into it...
16:11:17 <bay|AX|CR> Q: About the PS3 app, will there be unique functions or will it work like the website
16:11:32 <bay|AX|CR> A: It will support the main functions, but there will be the same differentiation between the premium service
16:11:38 <bay|AX|CR> and you will be able to watch the entire catalog
16:11:46 <bay|AX|CR> all the videos on the site can be watched on demand on the console
16:11:54 <bay|AX|CR> Q: Passwords will work?
16:12:03 <bay|AX|CR> A: Yea, you'll log in to your account
16:12:13 <bay|AX|CR> we're really excited about ps3 because we know (there are gamers)
16:12:18 <bay|AX|CR> Q: How did crunchyroll get its name?
16:13:15 <bay|AX|CR> A: So.. as you know.. it's a sushi type of food.. it's a fried califiornia roll... and a california roll is not traditionally japanese, but it's japanese sushi with a western influence, and you mix it up and that's what we're doing, bringing japanese content
16:13:28 <bay|AX|CR> Q: Movies like naruto?
16:13:43 <bay|AX|CR> A: We do get movies and that stuff, but our main focus is series
16:16:47 <bay|AX|CR> (Raffle)
16:26:03 <bay|AX|CR> End
