Unedited Feed from the JAST USA panel at Anime Expo 2009. Transcription: zalas
Note: ( ) is usually commenting on the panel and was not said.

22:06:30 <zalas|JAST> My name is Shingo. Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated
22:07:09 <zalas|JAST> What are bishoujo games?
22:07:12 <zalas|JAST> If you're here, let's get this very clear
22:07:18 <zalas|JAST> This is a panel intended for ages 18 and older
22:07:31 <zalas|JAST> We're following up on the heels of a doujin game panel
22:07:37 <zalas|JAST> We are not the doujin game panel
22:07:43 <zalas|JAST> We are not hello kitty's adventure
22:07:57 <zalas|JAST> We are here because we produce games that are not afraid to address issues that most games would get in trouble talking about
22:08:07 <zalas|JAST> Games involve relationships with beautiful women
22:08:13 <zalas|JAST> Choose your destiny together
22:08:19 <zalas|JAST> It will inavoidably include
22:08:23 <zalas|JAST> *inevitably
22:08:25 <zalas|JAST> audience: YAOI!
22:08:47 <zalas|JAST> JAST USA was founded in 1997 and we released our first game in 1998
22:09:11 <zalas|JAST> then Peach Princess and G Collections
22:09:14 <zalas|JAST> If you like to see even more of what we have
22:09:21 <zalas|JAST> We have JAST USA J-List booth in the exhibitor's hall
22:09:31 <zalas|JAST> Come early, come often
22:09:36 <zalas|JAST> (Audience cheers)
22:09:52 <zalas|JAST> Come to the booth with all of your clothing on
22:09:56 <zalas|JAST> No pants, no service
22:10:11 <zalas|JAST> We will be happy to serve you there with purely exchanges of goods
22:10:12 <zalas|JAST> Anyway
22:10:24 <zalas|JAST> Next we'd like to talk about what we've been doing this past year
22:10:26 <zalas|JAST> We have been hard at work on several titles
22:10:33 <zalas|JAST> We have also have been hard at work on some website stuff
22:10:40 <zalas|JAST> G-Collecitons site redesign and relaunch
22:10:50 <zalas|JAST> A new site design for our JAST USA official webpage
22:10:51 <zalas|JAST> Should be live
22:11:02 <zalas|JAST> New blog interface and RSS feed
22:11:15 <zalas|JAST> Really improve the experience
22:11:29 <zalas|JAST> Amorous Professor Cherry
22:11:31 <zalas|JAST> This was released at last AX
22:11:36 <zalas|JAST> This came out around this time last year
22:11:44 <zalas|JAST> Story of a young man and a teacher he likes very very much
22:12:07 <zalas|JAST> Unfortunately, he likes her so much that he's getting distracted in class and the story sort of goes off from there
22:12:23 <zalas|JAST> Princess Waltz
22:12:25 <zalas|JAST> (lots of cheering)
22:12:28 <zalas|JAST> Came out last fall
22:12:34 <zalas|JAST> This is one of the most high profile games we've ever put out
22:12:40 <zalas|JAST> We're really really happy we were able to work on this
22:13:14 <zalas|JAST> Really great story
22:13:21 <zalas|JAST> Cosplay Fetish Academy
22:13:24 <zalas|JAST> Which we have available today
22:13:29 <zalas|JAST> Just came out a couple of weeks ago
22:13:30 <zalas|JAST> Brand new title
22:13:42 <zalas|JAST> This is a game where very much what you see on the cover is what you'll find in the game
22:13:49 <zalas|JAST> Setup is pretty simple, there's no beating around the bush
22:14:06 <zalas|JAST> You are struck by lightning and all the females are wearing skimpy costumes when you wake up
22:14:14 <zalas|JAST> However, the bad end... consider the opposite... is what I'm going to say
22:14:59 <zalas|JAST> First announcement of the evening
22:15:14 <zalas|JAST> Family Project is now golden master
22:15:19 <zalas|JAST> July 2009 release confirmed
22:15:31 <zalas|JAST> 2 years in the making for a variety of reasons I'm not going to go into right now
22:15:38 <zalas|JAST> With a translation that really demanded a lot of attention on our part
22:15:43 <zalas|JAST> Now on its way to the replicators
22:15:46 <zalas|JAST> WIll be available by the end of the month
22:16:21 <zalas|JAST> Game currently in production
22:16:30 <zalas|JAST> Cat Girl Alliance
22:16:56 <zalas|JAST> When you're blackmailed into joining a secret school sex society by your hermaphrodite classmate Rumi, a whole new world of exploration and exotic love awaits!
22:17:00 <zalas|JAST> Estimated Release: Fall 2009
22:18:06 <zalas|JAST> Raidy II
22:18:13 <zalas|JAST> Expected release: winter 2009
22:18:20 <zalas|JAST> last of g coll titles we currently have from them
22:19:02 <zalas|JAST> Next item is something we anounced last AX
22:19:10 <zalas|JAST> that ... unfortuantely we have to announce is currently frozen
22:19:12 <zalas|JAST> Cleavage
22:19:31 <zalas|JAST> reason: They lost the original, uncensored graphics
22:19:37 <zalas|JAST> So we're waiting for them to be found
22:19:56 <zalas|JAST> Moero Downhill Night: The Series
22:19:57 <zalas|JAST> production is moving along
22:20:07 <zalas|JAST> working through some technical issues
22:20:15 <zalas|JAST> could be as early as this fall
22:20:18 <zalas|JAST> in fact the first one probably will be
22:20:24 <zalas|JAST> dependent on the Japanese devleoper side
22:20:30 <zalas|JAST> providing updates on the website when we're able to
22:20:36 <zalas|JAST> translation done
22:20:41 <zalas|JAST> quasi new announcement
22:20:44 <zalas|JAST> Yukkuri Panic Series
22:20:53 <zalas|JAST> set of two games
22:20:59 <zalas|JAST> one is a short dating sim game
22:21:04 <zalas|JAST> other of the arcade type game
22:21:23 <zalas|JAST> YOu aim to get all her clothes off, basically
22:21:28 <zalas|JAST> Escalation, first one in the lineup
22:21:40 <zalas|JAST> This is also going to be part of our release timeline
22:21:43 <zalas|JAST> same developer as downhill night game
22:22:11 <zalas|JAST> if you thought this was the end of the panel... um... it would be kind of early
22:22:19 <zalas|JAST> as much as this next slide want to be surprising
22:22:22 <zalas|JAST> "One more thing..."
22:23:01 <zalas|JAST> 730 deus ex machina
22:23:11 <zalas|JAST> Nitro+
22:23:32 <zalas|JAST> Demonbane
22:24:51 <zalas|JAST> In 2010, Nitro+ meets JASTUSA
22:25:18 <zalas|JAST> We're happy to announce that we've started a partnership with Japanese entertainment company Nitro+
22:25:47 <zalas|JAST> You may know them from Phantom of Inferno, the video you just saw is from zanmataisei demonbane
22:26:07 <zalas|JAST> and they've also produced games like gekko no carnevale, most recently sumaga
22:26:14 <zalas|JAST> and Chaos;Head
22:26:23 <zalas|JAST> Our first game from them is going to be DEMONBANE
22:26:26 <zalas|JAST> Nitroplus English Project No. 1
22:26:31 <zalas|JAST> ZANMA TAISEI DEMONBANE
22:27:39 <zalas|JAST> coming most likely in early 2010 is our goal
22:27:41 <zalas|JAST> one more title
22:27:55 <zalas|JAST> (showing video)
22:29:42 <zalas|JAST> Jingai Makyou
22:29:54 <zalas|JAST> Which is another really successful game in the Nitro+ franchise
22:30:17 <zalas|JAST> This is another game with some occult elements
22:31:03 <zalas|JAST> Nitro+ produces incredibly high budget and high quality games
22:31:14 <zalas|JAST> We're confident we can represent nitro+ adequately in our partnership with them
22:31:20 <zalas|JAST> We have at least one other game, more details in the future
22:31:33 <zalas|JAST> We're planning on doing many more assuming reception is strong
22:31:41 <zalas|JAST> We're planning to get both of these out before AX
22:32:08 <zalas|JAST> Thanks for coming!
22:32:32 <zalas|JAST> We're not going to take questions until after we give stuff away
