11:27:33 <bay|NYCC|Viz> when is naruto shippuden coming to the US? that is not yet determined... but there is a good chance it will continue when it catches up

11:28:47 <bay|NYCC|Viz> with claymore.. is vol 12 the last volume in may or june....? no, i don't think so
11:29:38 <bay|NYCC|Viz> any problems with sales with shrink wrapped titles? with mature titles.. we are forced by chains ... does it hurt us? i don't think so...
11:30:40 <bay|NYCC|Viz> pot, hng, fmws? they are taking a break... we are taking a look at the best format to release them in
11:31:18 <bay|NYCC|Viz> details on the oishinbo license/release? we probably aren't going to release all 100 vols... we will have news on it soon

11:39:47 <bay|NYCC|Viz> (lots of meh questions/not relevant)
11:40:33 <bay|NYCC|Viz> for sub only dvds.. considering them for niche titles?
11:40:56 <bay|NYCC|Viz> that is open.. there are certain niche titles that we have looked at that it might be a good model... but we have to see what makes sense and what we hear from our fans
11:41:18 <bay|NYCC|Viz> if there is a niche title that would justify sub only, we are open to it
11:41:39 <bay|NYCC|Viz> (note, they did not say that there are 2 total boxsets, just that the first two were planned)
11:41:45 <bay|NYCC|Viz> for hunter x hunter
11:42:42 <bay|NYCC|Viz> how can the market reach grow to meet the market as it ages? the majority of our fanbase is among tweens, we are looking to acquire titles that will grow with them...
