15:15:44 <bay|Ota|MB> it's doing great...
15:15:54 <bay|Ota|MB> i don't know why it took people so long to figure this out...
15:16:18 <bay|Ota|MB> (question about seirei dub)
15:17:08 <bay|Ota|MB> gaogaigar final? i'd hope so...
15:17:11 <bay|Ota|MB> i just finished the second box
15:18:21 <bay|Ota|MB> about final ova.. the 8 ep or the 12 ep version? i like the 8 ep... ggg is cool and all, but i like watching it as it is....
15:19:13 <bay|Ota|MB> Night Head Genesis.. if it does well... go for Sci-fi Harry and other night head stuff?... the reason we got NHG was because it has pretty boys.. and girls like pretty boys....
15:19:53 <bay|Ota|MB> Genshiken S2? I believe that is after Kujibiki... we are just finishing that up now.. and im pretty sure after that we will..
15:20:40 <bay|Ota|MB> beside the DVD release... single eps on psn or xbox live? there is voltron on xboxlive... machine girl is on xboxlive.. (which is in the top 10.... )

15:21:49 <bay|Ota|MB> very colorful book for those who like yuri
15:22:55 <bay|Ota|MB> what happened to GGG dub? it's really expensive and people weren't as excited about the first volume... so to put out the rest, we conserved cash as to say.. so it was a choice of no gao gai gar, or no dub gaogaigar
15:23:36 <bay|Ota|MB> boxsets? seirei is going to come out in the combo format (same as bandai)
15:23:43 <bay|Ota|MB> 1 and 2, 1 or 2, or 1 and 2 and box
15:25:03 <bay|Ota|MB> putting digital copies on the dvds? i think the video guys have been toying with it... not to sure..
