|Unedited Feed from the Madhouse panel at Otakon 2009. Transcription: bayoab
Note: ( ) is usually commenting on the panel and was not said.
12:37:29 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> (The interpreter is ragging on Viz.... while we wait for Madhouse to appear)
12:39:29 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> He's here...
12:39:39 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> I may be late for my panel, but I'm on time for my projects
12:39:44 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> I'm happy to be here in baltimore
12:40:50 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> Showing some clips right now...
12:42:11 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> (Rideback OP)
12:42:30 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> (And going to comment on them after)
12:43:14 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> That was the promo video for the series Rideback, it was a rare type for madhouse since Madhouse really doesn't do many robots...
12:43:21 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> the main character is also a cute girl which is another thing we don't do
12:43:52 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> (mentioning that MELL is here)
12:45:29 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> (Hajime no Ippo New Challenger promo/OP)
12:46:42 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> The second tv series has a new director because the previous director is working on a movie...
12:47:09 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> the new directory previously worked on saiunkoku monogatari
12:49:36 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> Souten Kouru based on romance of the three kingdoms...
12:50:17 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> In Japan, currently people are into warlord stories with good looking guys
12:51:01 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> (Someone) didn't want to go along with the trend...
12:51:19 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> and therefore choose a chinese looking warlord
12:51:41 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> Chi's sweet home Season 2
12:51:58 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> a short 5 min show every day...
12:52:48 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> last year we had a series about a sweet cat, and since it was popular, a second series was made that was just finished up on
12:53:43 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> Summer Wars... (the english voice at the end causes a laugh)
12:54:13 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> this is the movie that will be actually released in 2 weeks in japan, this is the second movie created by the guy who created tokikake
12:54:26 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> the pre-sales for the tickets are skyrocketing
12:55:06 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> the main story arcs abound the boy and the girl
12:55:31 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> but the entire family is involved
13:01:17 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> (showing rrandom clips)
13:12:07 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> Trigun movie promo.... dubbed...
13:12:57 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> this is actually a trailer that we made just for the american audience...
13:13:02 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> it was actually premiered at AX
13:13:34 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> what you just saw was the line up that they've been working on for the past few years
13:13:37 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> so... Q&A
13:14:26 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> (Couldn't hear... answer was basically as long as the distributors pick it up...)
13:15:20 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> Favorite project? Hate all of them (joking) because they were hard to make... actually liked... (Chi?)
13:16:21 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> Advice for someone who wants to be in the industry? This is my advice... (missed) it's tough work, i recommend not joining the industry
13:16:52 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> But if you don't mind no eat, no sleep, but if you have a strong passion, the only obstacle is communication
13:17:13 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> as long as you can speak japanese, (or people speak english), then as long as you have the passion, we welcome you
13:18:05 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> Continuing Tenjou tengue or shigurui? Info on Black Lagoon S3?
13:19:04 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> (couldn't hear the answer.. something about challenging himself)
13:19:49 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> would be interested in making the sequel to Shigurui, but it didn't do well in Japan
13:20:12 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> Tenten/Shigurui/Black lagoon are all difficult series to work on
13:20:42 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> those three series.. they are tough... but the other projects people bring to madhouse are also tough
13:21:43 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> Black lagoon.. still working with publisher, news to be released later
13:23:38 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> Why did you take on rideback? The challenge with this series was collaborating with the 3d cg team...
13:24:09 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> he likes things that look beautiful (like cute girls), but since he likes cute girls, thats another factor (but he doesn't like doing mech)
13:24:38 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> Whats the typical budget for a movie? Do animators sleep in the studio?
13:25:19 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> His roll as a producer is the creative aspect so he leaves money issues to the accouting side
13:25:24 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> most of the time, his main job is to make sure that the film is in the red
13:26:04 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> as for the second question, maybe if you visit madhouse during midnight, there will be (???)
13:26:37 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> Thoughts on american animation trends and if they have affected Japanese trends in anyway?
13:27:24 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> (Breaking off after this question for power...)
13:28:06 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> There is actually quite a bit of difference between the two but since japanese animation was brought over here, there must be common between the two types... but its really a hard question to answer...
13:29:06 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> Next season of Kaiji? Also, would it be distributed again here after it was taken down from Joost?
13:30:01 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> He's really interested in making the sequel and currently the producer and the original creator are the ones to make the second one....
13:30:18 <bay|Ota|Madhouse> But they haven't gone into details yet so next year or the year after maybe
