15:04:59 <bay|AB|Aniplex> and aniplex producer
15:05:04 <bay|AB|Aniplex> i hope you enjoy the panel
15:05:12 <bay|AB|Aniplex> *says him
15:05:17 <bay|AB|Aniplex> we're here to premiere the garden of sinners movie tonight
15:05:36 <bay|AB|Aniplex> and another purpose is we're here to introduce aniplex's brand new shows
15:05:38 <bay|AB|Aniplex> first of all...
15:06:01 <bay|AB|Aniplex> fma:b
15:06:06 <bay|AB|Aniplex> (no sound this time)
15:06:09 <bay|AB|Aniplex> here we go
15:06:17 <bay|AB|Aniplex> FMA B trailer
15:06:46 <bay|AB|Aniplex> (the long version)
15:09:25 <bay|AB|Aniplex> (going over who aniplex is as a company)
15:09:31 <bay|AB|Aniplex> (here, we sell the rights to america companies...)
15:09:43 <bay|AB|Aniplex> we are considered a licensor here but we are also producers
15:09:53 <bay|AB|Aniplex> next title.. is .. as you know.. gurren lagann movie..
15:09:56 <bay|AB|Aniplex> the tv was on scifi last year
15:10:21 <bay|AB|Aniplex> (going to show trailer for part 2 of ttgl movie)
15:10:27 <bay|AB|Aniplex> (after they bring up a guest)
15:10:39 <bay|AB|Aniplex> (bunta plushie)
15:12:27 <bay|AB|Aniplex> next title is guin saga
15:12:39 <bay|AB|Aniplex> may know because its published by Vertical in the states...
15:12:42 <bay|AB|Aniplex> based on the longest and best selling novel..
15:12:49 <bay|AB|Aniplex> 126 vol long
15:12:51 <bay|AB|Aniplex> and still going
15:14:26 <bay|AB|Aniplex> trailer....if the DVD loads
15:17:46 <bay|AB|Aniplex> next one is kuroshitsuji, black butler... (the dvd for guin saga didn't load)... trailer.... the next one is the long waited series.. kannagi...
15:18:30 <bay|AB|Aniplex> before we start... we have the producer here so he'll introduce the title
15:18:58 <bay|AB|Aniplex> so this is the yamakan's first direction after lucky star
15:19:41 <bay|AB|Aniplex> the charm of kannagi is the attractive characters
15:19:51 <bay|AB|Aniplex> eri takanashi.. the author of the manga...is already popular as a writer for type moon
15:20:10 <bay|AB|Aniplex> kannagi is a good show because of a mixture of seriousness and comedy
15:20:15 <bay|AB|Aniplex> so.. lets show kannagi
15:20:18 <bay|AB|Aniplex> (op)
15:22:18 <bay|AB|Aniplex> for the opening sequence is an idol setting
15:22:25 <bay|AB|Aniplex> but the story isn't actually about that
15:22:37 <bay|AB|Aniplex> (goes over plot)
15:23:04 <bay|AB|Aniplex> the opening was also yamakan's doing
15:23:08 <bay|AB|Aniplex> because he wanted everyone to dance
15:23:24 <bay|AB|Aniplex> we have good news
15:23:42 <bay|AB|Aniplex> we just launched nagisamafanclub.com
15:23:51 <bay|AB|Aniplex> since there is no information or anything... but we love nagisama so much... we made the fanclub site
15:24:01 <bay|AB|Aniplex> if you go there now
15:24:22 <bay|AB|Aniplex> soon, we are going to post news like gaining membership and what you can gain...
15:24:38 <bay|AB|Aniplex> we're doing exciting events
15:24:55 <bay|AB|Aniplex> so next on is the brand new title that was just announced at TIAF
15:25:02 <bay|AB|Aniplex> this is called cencoroll
15:25:26 <bay|AB|Aniplex> (director introducing it again)
15:25:57 <bay|AB|Aniplex> the cencoroll is totally different from previous aniplex works because it is a 30 min piece that is done by one person
15:25:59 <bay|AB|Aniplex> everything is done by one person
15:26:49 <bay|AB|Aniplex> the creator is Atsuya Uki and he posted portion of the move on the internet and a lot of people in japan noticed it and it became very... controversial? in japan
15:26:52 <bay|AB|Aniplex> aniplex took it and will release it...
15:26:59 <bay|AB|Aniplex> the 30 min piece should be done in summer time
15:27:03 <bay|AB|Aniplex> so look for it then
15:27:05 <bay|AB|Aniplex> time
15:30:05 <bay|AB|Aniplex> ryo of supercell from niconico douga... (did the music).... so ryo... the music creator... and the animator from another similar site teamed up and put it up
15:30:07 <bay|AB|Aniplex> new type of project
15:30:09 <bay|AB|Aniplex> last but not least
15:30:12 <bay|AB|Aniplex> garden of sinners
15:30:14 <bay|AB|Aniplex> kara no kyokai
15:31:08 <bay|AB|Aniplex> trailer
15:33:31 <bay|AB|Aniplex> this is based on the cult hit movie by nasu...
15:33:40 <bay|AB|Aniplex> known for tsukihime and fate stay night
15:34:00 <bay|AB|Aniplex> music is by kajira
15:34:21 <bay|AB|Aniplex> performed by kalafina..
15:34:39 <bay|AB|Aniplex> producer and in charge of distribution are here so...
15:35:19 <bay|AB|Aniplex> first, kara no kyokai is unique since it is 7 chapters within one movie
15:35:34 <bay|AB|Aniplex> and there are 7 chapters per movie since there were 7 chapters per book
15:35:45 <bay|AB|Aniplex> (??)
15:35:47 <bay|AB|Aniplex> in japan, it was a big hit
15:35:58 <bay|AB|Aniplex> in terms of dvd sales, only eva did better
15:38:08 <bay|AB|Aniplex> this isnot a simple story, its a very interweaved, complicated fantasy drama story... (and then it went into ?? area)
15:38:10 <bay|AB|Aniplex> also of note is UFO table which is like kyoani... they look within their own staff
15:38:12 <bay|AB|Aniplex> they don't outsource...
15:38:56 <bay|AB|Aniplex> first of all, our plan was to release 1 movie a night... and do all movies within a month...and that wasn't normal for theaters
15:39:15 <bay|AB|Aniplex> but as a result, the movie theaters helped supporting us
15:39:42 <bay|AB|Aniplex> the movie ended up being really popular
15:40:09 <bay|AB|Aniplex> so the first 3 movies were already available on DVD.... but the local theaters are still packed
15:40:18 <bay|AB|Aniplex> so i think... this is all from what he had to say
15:40:21 <bay|AB|Aniplex> so q&a
15:40:31 <bay|AB|Aniplex> please come up tot he mic if you have a question
15:42:20 <bay|AB|Aniplex> q: xam'd lost memories... bones anime ... available in america...any plans to find people to distribute it ? sony pictures has the rights in america so its up to them
15:42:23 <bay|AB|Aniplex> we haven't heard from them
15:42:56 <bay|AB|Aniplex> kara no kyokai movies... any plans to release them in HD format for home?
15:43:50 <bay|AB|Aniplex> here... we haven't sold to any licensors.. .in japan, they are on DVD... (didn't answer the question... thats not what i heard in the japanese for it)
15:45:49 <bay|AB|Aniplex> why did you pick to air the 5th chapter when the other 4 aren't availabe in the US... ? although they are movies, the other movies except 5 are really short...
15:45:51 <bay|AB|Aniplex> only 5 is feature length
15:48:51 <bay|AB|Aniplex> (question about airing things using SAP... saying how they normally give things to the TV station the night before)
15:50:56 <bay|AB|Aniplex> gurren lagann movies in america? no, we haven't licensed the ttgl movies yet... nor parallel works.. hope it happens soon.... thats all i can say
