14:56:56 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Setting up
14:59:24 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Having technical problems...
14:59:47 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> (What else is new)
14:59:54 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> (How many tech staff does it take to plug in a dvd player?)
15:00:41 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> (Just confirmed that Dragonabll S1 listing on walmart is a mistake)
15:00:44 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> (They do not have the rights... yet)
15:01:32 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> (Btw, the answer to the tech staff was 4)
15:02:17 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> (Talking with the crowd about Soul Eater dub...)
15:03:00 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> (Being very tight lipped.)
15:03:18 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> (Saying it's going to be a surprise and he hopes we'll be happy)
15:03:57 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Hello
15:04:11 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Adam Sheehan ....
15:04:13 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> waiting for a cable to start
15:04:16 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> answering random questions now
15:04:24 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> with everything that is going up, i assume you have questions
15:04:43 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: Is funimation going to dub Dragonball Kai?
15:04:50 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: We don't have the rights but we really really want it
15:05:03 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: The DBZ OVA?
15:05:18 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: Also in the plans..
15:05:31 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: With the streaming incident....
15:05:32 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: I'll give you guys an update....
15:05:52 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> recently we were trying to start streaming one piece 1 hour after the japanese broadcast..'
15:05:59 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> and there was a human error on our part that actually popped up
15:06:03 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> and the episode got leaked to the internet early
15:06:15 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> so we... went to try and fix it
15:06:19 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> and between that... the same thing happened with FMA and phantom
15:06:21 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> again, human error
15:06:36 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> and we basically took down the video portal for now to correct this and add security and make sure japan is happy with it
15:06:52 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> there are press releases on ANN and FUNi and an interview with Gen
15:06:56 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> We still have all the titles
15:06:57 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> we aren't losing any of them
15:10:13 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> they hope to have news about the video portal soon
15:07:16 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: Dubbing of ouran songs?
15:07:31 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: We wanted it on TV and they want dubbed songs
15:07:38 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: Sailor Moon?
15:07:48 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: We had a poll up recently
15:07:53 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> And we put up some stuff from Japan..
15:08:05 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> and someone decided to put up if you guys want a redub of sailor moon
15:08:08 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> normally we get 80 comments...
15:08:11 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> we got 2000
15:08:12 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> we don't have it
15:08:15 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> we'd love to have it
15:08:22 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> right now , the rights are not available
15:10:47 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> the creator is not making the rights available (for various reasons)
15:08:36 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> for now
15:08:51 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> and now, shows and clips
15:08:52 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> first
15:08:54 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> D. Gray Man
15:09:28 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Here's a clip from one of the earlier episodes
15:13:54 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Moving on...
15:13:52 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Kenichi
15:14:33 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> which is doing very well for them
15:19:20 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Heroic Age
15:24:23 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> (this is the same disc as Anime Boston if anyone is expecting something different)
15:25:34 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Murder Princess
15:25:37 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> all 6 eps on one DVD available in stores now
15:26:15 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> and 2 Romeo and Juliet clips after this
15:26:43 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> (Room is now standing room only)
15:29:24 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> "Full of murder and princess"
15:29:50 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Romeo x Juliet
15:31:03 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> For the dub itself
15:31:04 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> we spent a lot of time on itself
15:31:35 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Talison Jaffee, he worked in actual lines of Shakespeare from 3 or 4 plays that are matched in with the show
15:31:54 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> They matched translation wise and to lip flaps
15:32:03 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> And the next episode previews are written in Iambic Pentameter
15:38:02 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> (On the second clip)
15:38:49 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Thats all I got for clips
15:38:56 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> And now.. more questions
15:39:34 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: now the funimation channel has been moved to VOD, any chance of cablevision?
15:39:40 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: I'm not sure... we're trying to grow more and more
15:39:57 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> The biggest hurdle is that cable companies only have so many channels they can fit.
15:40:09 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Now with the switchover, they have more room
15:40:16 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> We're trying.
15:40:41 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: The Yugioh uncut DVDs.... is there a possibility of more? Why were they discontinued?
15:40:49 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: Distribution was us but production was 4kids...
15:41:04 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> They have not asked us to distribute any more.
15:41:16 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: Are you also trying to get the rights to Reborn?
15:41:22 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: It's on the list. of things to look at....
15:41:44 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: Is there anything coming to network tv outside of Funi channel?
15:41:46 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: We are working on that...
15:42:09 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> We got 5 or 6 shows that we want on broadcast that we are pitching
15:42:25 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: Estimate on when the video portal will be up?
15:42:30 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A; No date yet, good news in the near future
15:42:46 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: TV thing... trying to get some shows on Syfy?
15:42:45 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: talking to them
15:43:12 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q; FMA brotherhood streaming dubbed?
15:43:16 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: we want to, haven't gotten to that yet...
15:43:29 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> The original cast? Most of the original cast wants to come back...
15:43:36 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> the biggest problem right now is the voice of Al..
15:43:54 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> (since he's grown up)
15:44:27 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: Distribution of other edited childrens titles?
15:44:42 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: Always a possibility... not any specific title that I can think of it
15:44:49 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> if anyone wants us to distribute something, it's possible
15:45:22 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: For Dragonball Z, why did the voice actors change?
15:45:26 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: They are in canada, we are in texas
15:46:18 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> The overall rights to that dub weren't available to us (Ocean)
15:47:41 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: The new slayers... did you announce a date for online?
15:47:46 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: I'm not sure where the digital rights for slayers are
15:48:04 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> If it is, right now, slayers is looking for early next year since we are loooking at the original cast..
15:48:13 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> we'll definitely have the video portal fixed in time...
15:48:26 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> if the digital rights are available, i don't see any problems
15:48:51 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: (Specific DBGT question)
15:49:04 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: (Something about a dub actor who was changed)
15:49:24 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: Second season of GSG?
15:49:49 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: We do have that.. that is coming out... I believe Summer.. August/September release
15:49:57 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Hopefully dub premiere at AX
15:50:44 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Q: Noticed on the video portal when it was up, that you released dubbed episodes on the website almost instantly.... does it hurt the series?
15:51:00 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> A: We do bring out the DVD and then put the dub versions on the dub portal and the subbed version is up before hand
15:51:04 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> It doesn't hurt as much as you think
15:51:06 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Think of it like TV
15:51:30 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> People are going to watch it one way or another, legal or illegally, this gives them a way to watch it..
15:51:53 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> It does help sales believe it or not because people will watch it and decide to buy it
15:52:00 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> Thanks all the time we have
15:52:04 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> thank you for coming
15:52:03 <bay|ANext|FUNiSP> End
