15:29:09 <bay|AX|TRSI> Okay
15:29:14 <bay|AX|TRSI> It's 3:30 and it's happy time.
15:29:25 <bay|AX|TRSI> This is my first thing, I'm going to take a picture so I can prove I was here.
15:30:44 <bay|AX|TRSI> My name is Shawne Kleckner, I'm the president of TRSI, thank you very much for coming
15:30:15 <bay|AX|TRSI> The plan is to show you some of the trailers to the stuff we have.... and then stuff in the next few months... then something exciting.. then Q&A.... and which I will tell you that I won't answer.
15:30:20 <bay|AX|TRSI> Let's begin our presentation
15:30:26 <bay|AX|TRSI> Aria trailer

15:35:45 <bay|AX|TRSI> Lost Universe trailer
15:37:33 <bay|AX|TRSI> So like i was saying , the sets of these are available...
15:37:45 <bay|AX|TRSI> and the lower price on LU happens the day after the show ends i believe
15:37:55 <bay|AX|TRSI> and the low price Ninja nonsense set is out
15:38:08 <bay|AX|TRSI> Maria-sama 4th season trailer
15:39:04 <bay|AX|TRSI> So the long awaited 4th season is available now

15:40:58 <bay|AX|TRSI> recently announced the acquisition of this title..
15:41:06 <bay|AX|TRSI> one of the things you can see is we remastered the video for this show
15:41:11 <bay|AX|TRSI> the hardsubs and overlay have been removed

15:41:29 <bay|AX|TRSI> this will be coming out september

15:43:49 <bay|AX|TRSI> we're bringing back the first season which has been out of print
15:43:57 <bay|AX|TRSI> it's kinda hard to sell the second season when the first isn't available
15:43:59 <bay|AX|TRSI> also going to be a value priced set

15:51:35 <bay|AX|TRSI> it'll probably be very early 2011
15:51:48 <bay|AX|TRSI> i've seen people post "This is another yaoi show", i wouldn't consider it a yaoi show
15:52:04 <bay|AX|TRSI> New announcements

15:56:19 <bay|AX|TRSI> we have all the remaster video on this
15:56:27 <bay|AX|TRSI> the quality should be nothing less than pristine
15:56:31 <bay|AX|TRSI> we're going to do a bunch with this releases
15:56:37 <bay|AX|TRSI> a bunch of interactive things with the fans
15:56:52 <bay|AX|TRSI> at some points we're going to put up a request from the fans for interview content
15:56:57 <bay|AX|TRSI> as well as some extras
15:57:13 <bay|AX|TRSI> okay, going to talk about our lithographs
15:57:29 <bay|AX|TRSI> we're putting a few out at a time
15:57:39 <bay|AX|TRSI> you'll probably see some other stuff going up as far as us looking for feedback
15:57:45 <bay|AX|TRSI> i think the next one is azumanga daioh
15:57:49 <bay|AX|TRSI> www.musicskins.com
15:57:54 <bay|AX|TRSI> a license that we set up with it...
15:58:04 <bay|AX|TRSI> seems to be a rage to get shows youlike on your electronic devices
15:58:14 <bay|AX|TRSI> we're going to have stuff from aria and stuff from our shirt series....
15:58:18 <bay|AX|TRSI> the ninja crossing
15:58:21 <bay|AX|TRSI> and that's the end of my presentation
15:58:25 <bay|AX|TRSI> i'm going to go home now
15:58:40 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q&A
15:58:55 <bay|AX|TRSI> there is more to come if you follow my little tips i put in my messages
15:59:00 <bay|AX|TRSI> questions...and maybe answers...
15:59:15 <bay|AX|TRSI> do we have a place where people can line up? (run, run.... or we can bid for questions)
15:59:35 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: Will there be any more wallscrolls or merch for Maria-sama?
15:59:55 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: I don't know if we have anything going in that direction or not, I do know that we have talked to a number of people about it. In terms of wallscrolls, I don't think we have any planned.
16:00:15 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: Any real yuri series?
16:00:25 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: I keep buying stuff so you never know.
16:00:46 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: any information on the special features for Soranowoto?
16:01:01 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: Japanese DVD only specials... probably some interviews... whatever we can clear.. nothing is finalized
16:01:04 <bay|AX|TRSI> we just got materials a week ago
16:01:30 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: Anything with the dirty pair ovas and movies?
16:01:42 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: (missed, basically dodged it)
16:01:59 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: how many of those are going to be dubbed in english?
16:02:24 <bay|AX|TRSI> A; here's the deal guys, if you can get the economy going, it would help
16:02:27 <bay|AX|TRSI> it's a tough market out there.
16:02:56 <bay|AX|TRSI> if the show was previously dubbed, it will have a dub
16:02:59 <bay|AX|TRSI> the rest will be subtitle only
16:03:40 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: What resolution is the remaster of Utena?
16:04:05 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: the remaster just means it's been recaptured from film, so the resolution is probably higher than dvd.... we have no plans for blu-ray at that point
16:04:08 <bay|AX|TRSI> but at some point it is possible
16:04:12 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: Expanding to blu-ray?
16:04:20 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: It's not as near cool as my laser disc...
16:04:28 <bay|AX|TRSI> I agree with you, I'd like more stuff out on bluray
16:04:41 <bay|AX|TRSI> as prices on the production of blu-ray come down, i anticipate we will move into it
16:04:46 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: OSTs of various anime?
16:04:53 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: at one point we did release soundtracks, we did that for a while
16:05:05 <bay|AX|TRSI> but the sales of packaged cds have dropped off a little bit so it's a little more difficult
16:05:20 <bay|AX|TRSI> it's not like you can go to the same people who ou bought the dvd rights so you have to start from scratch
16:05:38 <bay|AX|TRSI> if i can get the party who does music to do so in a reasonable manner, i'd be happy to do so
16:05:55 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: Are you going to license the second season of To Heart?
16:06:05 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: going to take my DLW cue here... and neither confirm or deny
16:06:45 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: Utena...
16:06:58 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: 3 box sets is the plan... no merchandise plans at the moment
16:07:04 <bay|AX|TRSI> I think we can do some nice packaging.
16:07:08 <bay|AX|TRSI> I believe right now we're looking at 3 sets
16:07:54 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: Antique bakery... the cutouts... is the show like that?
16:08:01 <bay|AX|TRSI> A; that's for the op only....
16:08:28 <bay|AX|TRSI> The rest of the video between the cutouts is what the show looks like
16:08:50 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: El Hazard OVAs and spinoffs?
16:09:00 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: can't comment on that at this time
16:09:33 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: extras for utena?
16:09:37 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: don't have that tied down at the moment
16:10:01 <bay|AX|TRSI> one of the nice thing is having to work on this forever, we can work on some neat things like taking questions from the fans for interviews
16:10:09 <bay|AX|TRSI> as for other extras, i think we'll have some other interviews on the disc.
16:10:39 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: Karekano remaster?
16:10:54 <bay|AX|TRSI> A; I don't know at the moment. There is the extra version of the footage...
16:11:02 <bay|AX|TRSI> We did try and go and get that and it didn't work...
16:11:11 <bay|AX|TRSI> At the moment, I don't know that we have anything planned on that.
16:11:16 <bay|AX|TRSI> We did put it on a value set recently.
16:11:55 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: Any bonus material for Dirty Pair?
16:12:08 <bay|AX|TRSI> A; we do have some stuff planned but i want to keep quiet on that for a while
16:12:44 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: More cost effective to get remasters of previously released titles than new titles?
16:13:04 <bay|AX|TRSI> A; I make the decision based on what I think the fans want and if there is a remaster, there is a big business.
16:13:13 <bay|AX|TRSI> I know there were comments about Utena and El Hazard's video quality
16:13:31 <bay|AX|TRSI> Obviously if we are going to release it, it's going to look as good as it possibly can.
16:13:42 <bay|AX|TRSI> Otherwise, we're going to license things that will sell and
16:13:50 <bay|AX|TRSI> You have to keep in mind i have to compete with others for titles...
16:15:05 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: w.r.t Utena, what are your plans for the movie?
16:15:12 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: the movie is not the same licensor, we don't have any comment on that
16:15:28 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: New utena out or coming?
16:15:45 <bay|AX|TRSI> A; from talking to people, it's not in the works, it was released in nice materials in japan but not aware of anything
16:16:42 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: Licensing old shows?
16:16:47 <bay|AX|TRSI> Same as earlier and..
16:16:48 <bay|AX|TRSI> There are several places that we watch for what the fans want...
16:17:08 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q; itunes like thing for OSTs?
16:17:14 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: you are talking about a whole different industry
16:17:20 <bay|AX|TRSI> it is not very easy to work witht he music people
16:17:23 <bay|AX|TRSI> we do continue to try
16:17:36 <bay|AX|TRSI> it's not easy to say "i'd like my stuff on itunes"
16:17:43 <bay|AX|TRSI> we definitely try to explore every option we can
16:18:04 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: Junjou Season 3?
16:18:11 <bay|AX|TRSI> A; haven't heard anything to that effect at this point?
16:19:01 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: Some titles have episodes broken up as titles and some have one episode with multiple chapters... any reason?
16:19:16 <bay|AX|TRSI> A; I don't really dictate that stuff, I give them some creative freedom
16:19:34 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q; Blu-ray captain tyler or other titles?
16:19:40 <bay|AX|TRSI> A; the original tyler was on film so it is possible
16:19:47 <bay|AX|TRSI> I don't have a plan for that now, I can't say we wouldn't do that
16:19:55 <bay|AX|TRSI> If there is something on blu-ray that I own, it is captain tyler
16:21:10 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: High school of the dead?
16:21:17 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: announced by sentai filmworks earlier today...
16:21:23 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: How hard was it to get Dirty Pair TV
16:21:41 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: we have the remastered footage, so the DVD quality should be nothing less than the R2
16:21:57 <bay|AX|TRSI> how hard was it to get it? The tv series was produced in.... the eighties.. it's a long time coming...
16:22:03 <bay|AX|TRSI> we worked on it for a while
16:22:51 <bay|AX|TRSI> (i asked the question that was sent to me, but couldn't write it down, will transcribe it over later)
16:23:06 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: Tyler... crazy or so brilliant that he seems crazy
16:23:14 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: That's like asking about the existence of god
16:23:51 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: Any other ADV shows to be re-releasing?
16:24:02 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: Guess we did pull back Gals from ADV....
16:24:09 <bay|AX|TRSI> time will tell as far as future titles
16:24:42 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q: The turn around time between the DVDs and the release... there is a frustration that I sense...
16:24:51 <bay|AX|TRSI> A: let me explain...hopefully concisely, why it takes time to put it out
16:24:56 <bay|AX|TRSI> when something is broadcast in japan...
16:25:03 <bay|AX|TRSI> the show generally runs overbudget and behind schedule
16:25:15 <bay|AX|TRSI> the tv episode might get delivered the actual broadcast...
16:25:22 <bay|AX|TRSI> that makes it somewhat difficult to do the simultaneous stuff
16:25:28 <bay|AX|TRSI> it's a very complicated process, i know companies that do it
16:25:35 <bay|AX|TRSI> becauses the companies are behind, they don't finish stuff
16:25:51 <bay|AX|TRSI> we've run into this with releases where we've gotten the tv version instead of the version where they go back and fix things
16:26:04 <bay|AX|TRSI> in japan, they will go back for the DVD release and clean up things or add footage...
16:26:15 <bay|AX|TRSI> the dvd comes out several months after airing in japan
16:26:18 <bay|AX|TRSI> the second is licensing takes time
16:26:35 <bay|AX|TRSI> if every japanese company was super cooperative and all production committees were on happy land mushrooms, that would be great
16:26:38 <bay|AX|TRSI> but in general, that's not the case
16:26:48 <bay|AX|TRSI> it's a lot of back and forth and working with committees with need to agree
16:26:54 <bay|AX|TRSI> it can be several months in back and forth
16:27:20 <bay|AX|TRSI> (missed some parts)
16:27:29 <bay|AX|TRSI> lot people aren't aware of the process
16:27:31 <bay|AX|TRSI> but it does take time
16:28:26 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q; Considered doing a pre-order only sale?
16:29:05 <bay|AX|TRSI> A; we used to give a discount on pre-order and i took that and made it the everyday price. It can be very difficult to put together a schedule for sales that generates some level of excitement
16:29:20 <bay|AX|TRSI> I try to spread things out so we hit different groups of products
16:29:59 <bay|AX|TRSI> Q; Are you doing anything with the Dirty Pair Flash missions?
16:30:01 <bay|AX|TRSI> A; no comment on anything past the TV series
16:30:05 <bay|AX|TRSI> thank you for coming to the panel
16:30:14 <bay|AX|TRSI> end
