22:26:24 <zalas|MangaGamer> I'm Katakura, I come from the ninja village
22:26:30 <zalas|MangaGamer> (had to remove mask)
22:26:56 <zalas|MangaGamer> Japan is a little bit too peaceful, and so not a lot of work for ninja, so I've been working as a video game illustrator
22:27:26 <zalas|MangaGamer> newest one I worked on is Kira Kira
22:27:54 <zalas|MangaGamer> We're going to have tororo danchou explain the relationship between song and game
22:28:07 <zalas|MangaGamer> How many of you have played bishoujo game before?
22:28:09 <zalas|MangaGamer> Whoa!
22:28:26 <zalas|MangaGamer> Among bishhoujo games, moe and naki games, for those games, music plays a very important part
22:28:53 <zalas|MangaGamer> During emotional and passionate scene, lots of music and songs that are played in it
22:29:25 <zalas|MangaGamer> For singers who sing in those games, fans in Japan call them utahime
22:29:41 <zalas|MangaGamer> We're going to show one of the video clips of one of the video games
22:29:50 <zalas|MangaGamer> (Suika A.S+ OP)
22:32:05 <zalas|MangaGamer> It's released by Circus in Japan
22:32:32 <zalas|MangaGamer> Suika in a single phrase, is about nostalgia of one summer
22:33:08 <zalas|MangaGamer> In Japan, in August, season of Obon, return of ancestors and really sad type of season
22:33:15 <zalas|MangaGamer> Girl in he black hat, she's a grim reaper
22:33:22 <zalas|MangaGamer> So it's kind of a sad story
22:33:40 <zalas|MangaGamer> How many have played Suika before?
22:33:42 <zalas|MangaGamer> (not many)
22:33:57 <zalas|MangaGamer> Suika is the game that made Circus into a popular video game maker
22:34:16 <zalas|MangaGamer> After that, Da Capo, as very popular and turned into anime, Suika might only be only known by the hardcore fans
22:34:37 <zalas|MangaGamer> This video game is available to play outside of Japan
22:35:27 <zalas|MangaGamer> MangaGamer flyer, for the past year, this video game has been sold on this website
22:35:31 <zalas|MangaGamer> www.mangagamer.com
22:35:49 <zalas|MangaGamer> Booth at dealer's hall, I'm also producer of this site
22:36:31 <zalas|MangaGamer> Currently this is download only
22:36:39 <zalas|MangaGamer> only in English language version
22:37:03 <zalas|MangaGamer> in the future we would like to try different things, like making it available in different languages
22:37:28 <zalas|MangaGamer> (this is tororo speaking since the OP)
22:37:59 <zalas|MangaGamer> due to the server being in Europe, when you pay it's in euro, we've been talking to a lot of different makers in Japan and we plan on bringing out a lot of titles
22:38:48 <zalas|MangaGamer> Initially we had a little bit of difficulty with localisation, but the translators have been working hard and we have been striving for quality that will please all of you

22:40:59 <zalas|MangaGamer> (synopsis)
22:41:04 <zalas|MangaGamer> video game about bands in high school and stuff
22:41:14 <zalas|MangaGamer> I'd like to get a comment from Shinji Katakura
22:42:13 <zalas|MangaGamer> For bishoujo gamse, most of them are about memories of youth and romance that blossoms in that period
22:43:31 <zalas|MangaGamer> So there are different types of memories, in this one it's a bout a group of people in school who get together and form a band
22:43:31 <zalas|MangaGamer> About putting together a band, might be more common to audience in US
22:44:33 <zalas|MangaGamer> Let's have tororo danchou explain a bit more about new titles that will be released in future
22:44:33 <zalas|MangaGamer> about having fun and making a final mark before growing up

22:45:58 <zalas|MangaGamer> we'll also be localising other Navel games as well
22:46:12 <zalas|MangaGamer> We've also acquired THAT famous duojin game
22:46:50 <zalas|MangaGamer> Very popular title in Japan, Higurashi no Naku koro ni
22:47:03 <zalas|MangaGamer> It's not an erotic game though
22:47:54 <zalas|MangaGamer> For titles to be 18+, doesn't necessarily have to be involving sex
22:48:08 <zalas|MangaGamer> If iit's a title adults can enjoy, will want to bring to us
22:48:19 <zalas|MangaGamer> in the future we would like to bring over manga
22:48:28 <zalas|MangaGamer> oriignall doujin versino being released
22:48:41 <zalas|MangaGamer> thinkiing of releasing in two parts, 4 chapters each

22:52:24 <zalas|MangaGamer> Q: Plans for Da Capo II?
22:52:39 <zalas|MangaGamer> A: We do have plans to release Da Capo II
22:52:57 <zalas|MangaGamer> Q: Plans for video game/ anime of Red River (Anatolia story)?
22:53:21 <zalas|MangaGamer> Q: Chie Shinohara's manga
22:53:25 <zalas|MangaGamer> (wtf)
22:53:41 <zalas|MangaGamer> A: might be possible to do it in that kind of setting
22:54:10 <zalas|MangaGamer> Q: Asking about EOCS limitations
22:55:14 <zalas|MangaGamer> A: I think there should be some sort of regulations, but I think it's about making restrictions about avoiding extremes. Right now there's talk in law about child pronography law applying to images and might apply to anime as well. I think that's going too far
22:55:59 <zalas|MangaGamer> Q: Lots of fan translation out there, what efforts are there to work with fan translators?
22:57:02 <zalas|MangaGamer> A: I think it's a case-by-case situation. We don't have any ideas like fan translations are bad. If we're able to use that and get it at a relatively affordable price. Might be able to release video gaems at lower prices as well
