10:32:05 <bay|AX|TP> i don't have a specific time frame, but we are contacting all rights holders
10:32:46 <bay|AX|TP> are you going to release the hack//sign 4 panel comic...
10:33:19 <bay|AX|TP> we are wary of 4 panel gag strips because they are hard to translate and keep them funny and make sense
10:35:19 <bay|AX|TP> other series released as bindups?
10:35:26 <bay|AX|TP> (omnibus...)
10:35:40 <bay|AX|TP> rebirth, keroro, chronicles of the cursed sword... dramacon...

10:36:20 <bay|AX|TP> something halloween
10:36:24 <bay|AX|TP> ai yori aoshi in nov
10:36:32 <bay|AX|TP> kare kano previously..
10:36:42 <bay|AX|TP> its a lot of talking to the licensors and getting permission..
10:37:15 <bay|AX|TP> its something we consider for long series..
10:37:25 <bay|AX|TP> what is going on with the light novel line?
10:37:49 <bay|AX|TP> we will continue with 12kingdoms... but we are re-evaluating some of them
10:37:53 <bay|AX|TP> some may be moved to a later pub date or cancelled
10:37:57 <bay|AX|TP> we have to work it out with the licensors
10:38:52 <bay|AX|TP> (question about bsg?)
10:41:55 <bay|AX|TP> (question about the UK office)
10:42:39 <bay|AX|TP> (WTF is going on.....)
10:43:15 <bay|AX|TP> (....someone was trying to pitch something here which was extremely bizzare... involved Egyptian erotica)
10:43:48 <bay|AX|TP> what does kodansha opening up shop in the US affect TP?
10:43:54 <bay|AX|TP> as far as we know, it doesn't affect our current licenses
10:44:07 <bay|AX|TP> we've been successful with 12k, ravemaster, getbacker(?)
10:44:23 <bay|AX|TP> they are a smart company, there is no reason for them to take away something that sells well
10:45:17 <bay|AX|TP> (And they like kodansha...)
10:46:45 <bay|AX|TP> do you have a date on the hensen manga?
10:46:57 <bay|AX|TP> vol 3 of return to labyrinth is in december...
10:47:04 <bay|AX|TP> the crystall.. check the website
10:47:35 <bay|AX|TP> release schedule for shigogetten...? i don't know ... i think vol 2 is about to hit.... its quarterly....
10:48:43 <bay|AX|TP> standard answer regarding question about which series will continue or which more will continue
10:49:01 <bay|AX|TP> will you stop releasing yaoi titles in the US?.... a very resounding no....
10:49:21 <bay|AX|TP> "you know what freud would say..."
10:49:36 <bay|AX|TP> i heard you guys talking about the DMC manga...do you guys have an affiliation w/ capcom
10:49:46 <bay|AX|TP> there was a megaman 0 manga released in japan..
10:49:55 <bay|AX|TP> "we haven't gotten a megaman question in a long time~"
10:50:20 <bay|AX|TP> "we do have a relationship with capcom, sometimes we work directly, sometimes its through a licensor.. dmc happens to be through the licensor i think.. so its a possibility"
10:50:23 <bay|AX|TP> (on to a raffle)
10:58:49 <bay|AX|TP> (side note: the guy who hated yaoi won something)
10:59:21 <bay|AX|TP> end
Notes: None
