|Unedited Feed from the Aniplex Industry panel at New York Anime Festival 2009. Transcription: bayoab
Note: ( ) is usually commenting on the panel and was not said.
18:27:10 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> Welcome to the aniplex panel
18:27:25 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> VP of development and marketing (same person as the other panels)
18:27:28 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> Kinda freezing here...
18:27:51 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> So, we had a panel this summer at boston, expo, otakon, so some of you already know what im going to talk about
18:27:55 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> but if you don't, please stay till the end
18:28:31 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> Going to introduce the 2009 titles
18:28:33 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> You may have known most of these already...
18:28:50 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> We have a lot more titles that are coming out for 2010 so I will briefly mention those in the end
18:29:05 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> A lot of people already know FMA and FMA:B is the new FMA series which is being distributed by FUNimation
18:29:19 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> 24 episodes available on funi's site
18:29:38 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> Trailer...
18:30:01 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> (screen is in black and white...)
18:33:04 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> "The new FMA is presented in Black and White... I don't know what happened.. .It's nice and looks new in b&w"
18:33:28 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> (there was an odd effect going on too with the gradients.. can't really describe it)
18:34:00 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> So anyway, that was FMA... any questions
18:34:21 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> Q; New series based off of the first series or different?
18:34:53 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> A: The new episodes are more true to the comic. Last time 5 years ago, the previous FMA was made, only two vols of the manga had been released, so the creators did an original story
18:35:15 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> But now, 23 volumes are out so they are remaking it more true to the comics
18:35:20 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> Q: Movie for this version too?
18:35:42 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> A: Don't know yet. We may. Who knows. We're going to have like 63 episodes.
18:36:06 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> Q: What happens when you catch up to the manga if it hasn't ended by then? Will FUNi be distributing this on Blu-ray?
18:36:17 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> A: The comic itself is pretty much going to the final stage right now.
18:36:32 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> I don't think the anime will catch up to the manga and i don't think we will run out of story
18:37:19 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> (He fixes the color by turning it off and on twice)
18:37:46 <bay|NYAF|Aniplex> Continiuing on....
