Feed from the Gurren Lagann panel at New York Anime Festival 2008. Transcription: bayoab
Note: ( ) is usually commenting on the panel and was not said.

11:17:12 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> Good morning everybody...
11:17:15 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> welcome to the gurren lagann panel
11:17:33 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> "the who the hell do you think are" panel
11:17:47 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> toshifumi yoshida.... (bandai), tsukamoto (?) from aniplex usa
11:17:56 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> tony oliver... voice director
11:18:07 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> kyle herbert... voice actor
11:18:18 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> we also have steve bloom joining us shortly...
11:18:24 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> in the mean time, we thought we would get things rolling
11:18:27 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> trailer first
11:21:27 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> and magically.. steve bloom has appeared
11:23:05 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> so today...we have q&a with us.. the actors... the blooper reel....
11:23:09 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> (kinda leeron heavy)
11:24:15 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> gainax has a great story about why the edited version of ep 6 had to be made...
11:24:22 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> gainax went to the tv station ....got the go for it....
11:24:47 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> did the whole thing (storyboard, animation etc)... and then when it was done.... they said "you can't have guys peaking into the girls bathroom"
11:25:39 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> q&a now...
11:26:04 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> q: the movie? there is one movie being shown in japan right now... and one after that...
11:26:28 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> its a retelling of the first half of the story with new animation, more fanservice, and a slightly different ending...
11:29:02 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> (random questions regarding the show to the voice actors)
11:32:57 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> (questions regarding the production... ep4 ... funding)
11:33:41 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> q: do you ever talk to the original voice actors in japan?
11:34:00 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> a: there are situations where the va's meet their counterparts .. its not something that happens often, but when it happens, its cool
11:34:08 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> voice actors: sometimes we'd like to
11:35:14 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> q: sound track out? a: trying to acquire it for release
11:35:56 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> q: parallel works? a: we're hoping to use parallel works in some form at some point...
11:36:44 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> q: how much is dubbed? a: all of it is... wrapped up 3 weeks ago... baring any pickups.. all recording is done
11:37:30 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> q: will they air the recap? a: yes, all 27 eps will run on sci-fi
11:38:09 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> if you don't have sci-fi, available on itunes/xblive
11:38:33 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> q: release schedule for the dub?
11:39:00 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> a: nov 18th for vol 1, LE, RE and dbl pk
11:41:18 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> going to the blooper reel
11:45:26 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> q: (??) a: reason we released the subtitled version is because it was originally supposed to come out from another company and it was supposed to be already out and they wanted to get it out as soon as possible...
11:48:39 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> question about how they decide how high or low the voices are.... basically adjust it on the first take
11:49:25 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> to what the va, director, etc decide
11:49:57 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> q: a guide to the code system in the show on the computers? a: i'll run it by myself.... duly noted....
11:50:31 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> to include something on the DVDs or something
11:50:39 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> or as an extra
11:57:01 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> (toshi wants simultaneous US/JP releases)
11:57:39 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> (aniplex: from the producers standpoint... there is a lot of limitations.. like a certain tv station in japan doesn't want any other station.. and that includes other territories.. including countries to air)
11:58:19 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> (in the real world, there is a lot of contractual limitations... but the recent trend is we try to license out as soon as possible so that way, the fans communicate world wide and we can promote.. ex: ttgl...
11:58:30 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> and try to make that happen in the future
11:58:42 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> but day in day out.. it may take a long time to happen. (??) )
11:59:05 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> toshi: why is it taking so long for the dub version of ttgl to come out? well contractually, it has to fully air before it comes out...
12:00:09 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> (most of that except the ?? line above is word for word)
12:01:12 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> (And this is the end..)
12:01:19 <bay|NYAF|TTGL> we thank the cast and the director..
Notes: None
