12:37:15 <bay|Ota|CR> (Random tech issues a go go)
12:46:48 <bay|Ota|CR> test
12:46:57 <bay|Ota|CR> away we go
12:47:24 <bay|Ota|CR> (prompting for all the free stuff)
12:47:35 <bay|Ota|CR> Let's kick it off right now
12:47:40 <bay|Ota|CR> For you guys that don't know
12:47:44 <bay|Ota|CR> we're part of crunchyroll.com
12:47:47 <bay|Ota|CR> we stream anime and asian content
12:47:58 <bay|Ota|CR> through a variety of applications, you can find crunchyroll everywhere
12:48:07 <bay|Ota|CR> as you can se in the bottom corner, we just announced about a month ago that we would be on ps3
12:48:12 <bay|Ota|CR> very exciting
12:48:28 <bay|Ota|CR> so you can find us on social networks, where our social manager victoria will be...
12:48:47 <bay|Ota|CR> and like we also said earlier, you can find us on moblie places like windows phone, andoroid
12:49:19 <bay|Ota|CR> and a variety of other set top devices
12:49:20 <bay|Ota|CR> and cons
12:49:54 <bay|Ota|CR> CR on Samsung TV
12:50:01 <bay|Ota|CR> yes, we just launched that
12:50:02 <bay|Ota|CR> and finally
12:50:06 <bay|Ota|CR> ps3, finally we're on it
12:50:09 <bay|Ota|CR> it should be up sometime soon
12:50:13 <bay|Ota|CR> it's really awesome
12:50:46 <bay|Ota|CR> the crunchyroll application will be on ps3, and it should be on vita as well, but we don't know when that will happen
12:50:50 <bay|Ota|CR> we're working on all things
12:52:35 <bay|Ota|CR> crunchyroll news
12:52:35 <bay|Ota|CR> unfortunately patrick isn't here to talk about it
12:52:35 <bay|Ota|CR> we have writers all around the world to bring us up to date contnt
12:52:35 <bay|Ota|CR> w ehave guest writers from japan
12:52:35 <bay|Ota|CR> and a lot of it is wacky stuff
12:52:35 <bay|Ota|CR> (Tech difficulties)
12:52:36 <bay|Ota|CR> we also have daily deals section
12:53:01 <bay|Ota|CR> we also have the live show
12:53:06 <bay|Ota|CR> live weekly anime talkshow that we host
12:53:19 <bay|Ota|CR> and we bring industry professionals, cosplayers,(lost)
12:53:34 <bay|Ota|CR> and we let them interact, there is a live chat, so they get to interact with the fans
12:53:52 <bay|Ota|CR> we have the great anime debate
12:54:07 <bay|Ota|CR> we argued for a half hour whether avatar is a legitimate anime or not
12:54:16 <bay|Ota|CR> Crunchyroll ambassador program
12:54:28 <bay|Ota|CR> as you can see with these cosplayers sitting to victoria's left
12:54:39 <bay|Ota|CR> what the ambassador program is is a thing that my team crated to give back to the fans
12:55:23 <bay|Ota|CR> we're looking at cosplayers that show a lot of potetntial, we are looking at cosplayers who are volunteering for other booths, so here we have a cosplayer, she goes by sashieye(?), and here we have kora... (missed name), they both applied by sending in their cosplayer portfolio
12:55:29 <bay|Ota|CR> we also look for anime reviews
12:55:34 <bay|Ota|CR> if you have an anime youtube channel or a blog
12:55:49 <bay|Ota|CR> who does up to date anime
12:56:02 <bay|Ota|CR> we'll give you a cruncyroll account so you can watch the content and review it
12:56:15 <bay|Ota|CR> (can't keep up x_x)
12:57:00 <bay|Ota|CR> our crunchyroll ambassadors are actually paid for every person they convert to being a paying member after signing up through their affiliiate
12:57:05 <bay|Ota|CR> (paraphrase)
12:57:32 <bay|Ota|CR> if any of you guys are interested, you can sign up, we have a landing page, crunchyroll.com/ambassadors we have more information there and you can sign up there
12:57:38 <bay|Ota|CR> let's get a word from these girls
12:58:41 <bay|Ota|CR> we actually just added a pretty big name to the family, we probably added one of the most famous cosplayers in asia... alodea(?)
12:58:49 <bay|Ota|CR> so she's going to be doing stuff in asia
12:58:53 <bay|Ota|CR> you don't have to be in the US
12:59:05 <bay|Ota|CR> if you know any copsplayers who have a lot of presence, send them my way
12:59:20 <bay|Ota|CR> and the other part of th eprogram is to reward fans who are really into it
12:59:22 <bay|Ota|CR> give it up for our lovely cosplayers

12:59:36 <bay|Ota|CR> When we did this, we had a lot of brand new titles

13:16:41 <bay|Ota|CR> prize time...
13:16:45 <bay|Ota|CR> one last thing i forgot to tell you guys
13:17:46 <bay|Ota|CR> should we do Q&A first
13:17:52 <bay|Ota|CR> please feel free to let us know
13:18:28 <bay|Ota|CR> Q: for fairy tail, why only the last 4?
13:18:38 <bay|Ota|CR> A: that's due to the publish request
13:18:19 <bay|Ota|CR> we'd like to have it all up at all the time, but the rights holder has asked for us to only have 4 available
13:18:45 <bay|Ota|CR> Q: Any hd support for roku and when?
13:19:18 <bay|Ota|CR> A: HD on roku is on our timeline... we have a lot of other stuff, it's a huge part of how we distribute anime, that's something we're also working on as well, i don't have a time table, but hopefully...within the next year is the goal
13:19:33 <bay|Ota|CR> Ideally, we'd want to show it the best on every platform is the goal
13:20:03 <bay|Ota|CR> Q: On the ps3...any plans for the xbox360?
13:20:21 <bay|Ota|CR> A: We would love to be on xbox, it's something on our timeline... it's always something we're working towards
13:20:27 <bay|Ota|CR> one step at a time
13:20:37 <bay|Ota|CR> after we finish ps3, then maybe we can focus on a different platform
13:21:03 <bay|Ota|CR> Q: With the ambassadors project, with the non-cosplayers, is there anything like that?
13:21:19 <bay|Ota|CR> A: If you do reviews via blog or review, artists who do doujin or fanart, there are things you can pursue
13:21:42 <bay|Ota|CR> (The question went to jobs....see site was the answer)
13:22:34 <bay|Ota|CR> Q: How many titles are on the site?
13:22:45 <bay|Ota|CR> A: Drama... over 225, for anime... probably cracking over 300 at this point
13:23:01 <bay|Ota|CR> for the monthly fee, if you sign up at the booth, the first 30 days are free, and then every month after that is 6.95 for unlimited access
13:24:55 <bay|Ota|CR> most of the proceeds we get go back to japan
13:24:55 <bay|Ota|CR> Q: Will you stream Makoto Shinkai works again?
13:24:55 <bay|Ota|CR> A: Every year around march or april, we open up his works on the site and leave it up on the week
13:24:56 <bay|Ota|CR> and it's called makoto shinkai day, that's the only time we can
13:24:56 <bay|Ota|CR> he's been very gracious about it
13:24:56 <bay|Ota|CR> Q: Do the achievements matter or just for fun?
13:24:56 <bay|Ota|CR> A: you have to get the badges, they are for fun, come on
13:25:10 <bay|Ota|CR> (the tone of that was impossible to do in text)
13:25:26 <bay|Ota|CR> Q: Looking at getting children who chase voices from deep below
13:25:37 <bay|Ota|CR> A: Looking to get that, we gave away signed copies of that last shinkai day
13:26:09 <bay|Ota|CR> Q: All your series that you have on now, how long are you able to keep them on the site?
13:26:43 <bay|Ota|CR> A; Ideally, forever, as long as we are around, sometimes there are issues where we have to take something off because there is a DVD box or a special edition or whatever, where we have to temporarily take it down, but it has the potential of coming back
13:26:48 <bay|Ota|CR> Bottom line is pretty much forever...
13:27:02 <bay|Ota|CR> Q: So why 4 episodes at a time?
13:27:10 <bay|Ota|CR> A: Ideally as we said, we want everything out there at the same time
13:27:41 <bay|Ota|CR> btu if the dvd is coming out, or there is a special promotion or arrangement with the station but the rights holders want to keep from having everything out there to prevent cannibalization
13:28:31 <bay|Ota|CR> we're so happy to have those titles on our site
13:28:34 <bay|Ota|CR> Q: Wondering about the english localized titles..are you in charge of that or do the publishers do that?
13:28:47 <bay|Ota|CR> especially like majikoi or (missed th eother), do you know what thinking went to that
13:29:06 <bay|Ota|CR> A: again, it's whatever the publisher wants, sometimes they give us stuff that doens't make any sense...
13:29:51 <bay|Ota|CR> Q: Going to get Higurashi and Ebiten?
13:30:31 <bay|Ota|CR> A: Again...the whole process takes a long time ...and the goal when we started is to get 100% of the titles that are airing in japan
13:30:46 <bay|Ota|CR> and if you dont see it now, that doens't mean never, it doesn't mean never
13:31:14 <bay|Ota|CR> Q: Add the queue to the mobile device apps?
13:31:24 <bay|Ota|CR> A; Think we should, personal opinion, definitely have to sync up with dev team when we get back
13:31:45 <bay|Ota|CR> When we get back, we have to be like "here's what the fans want and they are angry and they are going to kick the door down" (paraphrase)
13:32:11 <bay|Ota|CR> Q: Is there much of an imperative to get older series and movies
13:32:47 <bay|Ota|CR> A: Yes, especially since I showed up , I'm a fan of older series, so we're starting to talk about older things, recently we added...well we have harlock and galaxy express...
13:32:54 <bay|Ota|CR> and we're looking at stuff...since there is a fanbase for it
13:33:14 <bay|Ota|CR> A lot of panels people ask for these, but these are hard to lciense
13:33:50 <bay|Ota|CR> (lost)
13:34:07 <bay|Ota|CR> prizes...
13:36:15 <bay|Ota|CR> (Going to call this end)
