Feed From Tokyopop at New York Comic-con 2008. Transcription: bayoab

14:02:05 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> Welcome to the Tokyopop panel
14:02:21 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> Don't have the power point presentation yet
14:02:25 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> fielding questions now
14:03:00 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> (Didn't catch the question.... something regarding Van Van Hunter?)
14:04:08 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> Something that was done at NYAF.... being expanded from 20 min show to a feature length film....
14:06:42 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> "If you aren't clamp, the name value of the creator doesn't transfer well..."
14:06:56 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> "An example being Lagoon Engine by the same creator as DNAngel"
14:07:54 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> How do you decide which titles will be in Japanese and how many will be westernized?
14:08:21 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> It's not a very exact science... if there is fan recognition, we usually keep the japanese title...
14:08:54 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> They get feedback from retailers saying that people can't say the titles....
14:09:00 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> Occasionally they get told to change the titles..
14:09:56 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> Does english large title and japanese subtitles help?
14:09:59 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> It depends on the series
14:11:01 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> Do we see any moves in the Japanese market to gear titles more toward the US market? Not int hat regard, the japanese publishers are aware of what is going on in the united states
14:11:21 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> but in the end, the licensing revenue generated is miniscule compared to the Japanese market unless it is naruto/fma/fruits basket/etc
14:12:05 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> The way our market works is completely different.
14:12:34 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> We have to be careful about things like Teacher/student relationships
14:12:51 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> And here goes the power point...
14:12:55 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> Few old announcements....
14:13:10 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> Fruits basket Planner... 18 month planner.. without specific dates

14:14:40 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> Geneimuso (December) by the author of fruits basket... will be retitled Phantom Dream
14:14:45 <bay|NYCC|Tokyopop> it is subtitled with the original Japanese title
