15:04:40 <bay|AX|Aniplex> A; Now at this time… if we do, we’ll update our website with the info

I am glad about Dirty Pair re release. Interesting the two movies and the ova will include both dubs. ADV and streamline. Dirty Pair out of print been and somewhat hard to find at times. This makes me very happy. Gasarki another hard to find one. I can only find volume 1 for a long time. Some other good ones too.


I’ve been saving my money for ‘Serial Experiments Lain’ and ‘Haibane-Renmei’. It would be nice to get some street dates for those… I hope Funimation’s sick of people asking about ‘Strike Witches 2’ as well.


Now that day 1 is done, let’s see what ones will be a “Yay!!!” and a “Nay!!!”

Dororon Enma-Kun- Yay!!! Go Nagia FTW!!!
But wait…they won’t have any release info until next year’s AX? Umm…okay… :unsure:
Sure, I understand why…but still, why inform us now? Better to wait and announce it later down the line. Well, hopefully I’ll still remember, and NISA will reminded me too, by year’s time


Kimi Ni Todoke - Nay…tentatively, for now.
At least part one will be coming out soon - Oct.- so that’s good. Part 2 will come out “later”…nice… :huh:

Dirty Pair More original and flash -Yay!!! for those that I’m missing and Nay for those that I have.
Gasaraki - Nay
Nadesico tv/movie - Nay
Gekigengar III - Maybe…

Blue Exorcist- Nay. That tentative release schedule is pretty funky
Madoka Magica - Yay!!!..when it finally shows up.
My gut tells me they’re gonna price them a little bit more expensively than regular DVD’s and I don’t see MM getting a domestic BD release here. Instead, we’ll be treated to one of their “import” specials.

Bleach: Fade to Black- Nay
Prof. Layton- Nay

Doesn’t matter, they’ll all eventually be pushed back by either a few weeks to maybe a year from their “scheduled” release dates.
I’m kidding…kidding… :stuck_out_tongue:

[size=20]Digital Manga Guild Program to Launch With 23 Titles[/size]
posted on 2011-07-02 17:25 EDT
Titles by Kotetsuko Yamamoto, Nabako Kamo, Keiko Kinoshita, Souya Himawari, others

At its Anime Expo panel on Saturday, the North American publisher Digital Manga Inc. (DMI) announced the first 23 titles that it is planning to release under its Digital Manga Guild program:

Tired of Waiting for Love by author Saki Aida and artist Yugi Yamada
Rule of Standing on Tiptoe by Puku Okuyama
Again Tomorrow by Nabako Kamo
Second Night of a Thousand Nights of Keiko Kinoshita
You and Tonight by Keiko Kinoshita
Steadfast Candy Heart Loveby Satomi Konno
Neck-Tie by Asahi Shima
I Love Love Too by Himeko Shindo
Only the Flower Knows by Rihito Takarai
My Sempai by Hebiko Habuyama
Courtesan Kings by Souya Himawari
The Reason Why He Loves Him So Much by Saori Mieno
The Faithful Dog Waits for Flowers by Mario Yamada
Chirp Chirp by Kotetsuko Yamamoto
Mad Cinderella by Kotetsuko Yamamoto
Blooming Darling by Kotetsuko Yamamoto
Full Bloom by Rio and Saori Mieno
The Kneeling Butler by Ikue Ishida
The Song of Rainfall by Nawo Inoue
A Passion of Oranges by Ruis Maki
Interval by Kanami Itsuki
Dokidoki Crush by Kotetsuko Yamamoto
Curve by Kahiro Kyouda

DMI already revealed that three of these manga titles — Tired of Waiting for Love, Only The Flower Knows, and The Faithful Dog Waits for Flowers — were assigned to the group Kawaii Neko to localize into English before the convention.

Last summer, DMI revealed its plans for the Guild, which allows fans to translate, edit, and letter works legally with the permission of the original Japanese owners. Under the program, the guild members are credited and paid royalties from online purchases, and the works may be published in print if they prove to be popular.

Gundam panel Q&A

I’m just posting this since it AGE related and AGE is new with little info.

18:38:05 <bay|AX|Gundam> Q; my question is about Gndam Age… more details… target audience… what universe?
18:38:35 <bay|AX|Gundam> M: Gundam Age will be different because the story will span over 100 years
18:39:02 <bay|AX|Gundam> And the audience in mind is little brother from young children to teens, so it’s intended to be more accesible than traditional gundam

18:39:42 <bay|AX|Gundam> Q: I’ll probably get crucified but I enjoyed gundam seed… anyway…about Gundam Age… you said targeted young… i can’t tell if it’s from the art style or not… but are the pilots children and not teenagers?
18:40:12 <bay|AX|Gundam> S: The main character in Age is 14 years old…
18:40:22 <bay|AX|Gundam> About the same age as traditional gundam pilots

18:40:49 <bay|AX|Gundam> Q: Will the new gundam series be released worldwide simultaneously?
18:41:00 <bay|AX|Gundam> (a good question~)
18:41:25 <bay|AX|Gundam> M: Gundam Age will not be simultaneous like Unicorn, but we want a worldwide release as close to the japanese release as possible


Do want Gekiganger 3 and Dirty Pair movie


So far it looks like I’ll be triple dipping on Nadesico. Mainly because of the fact it’s the actual video version not the TV version all of ADV’s releases were. Of course also because of Gekiganger 3. Keep my ADV sets because of the commentary.

Dirty Pair I’ll be double dipping on the Movies , OVA’s and Flash. Really only got 40.00 in to all three of the ADV sets. Movies plus OVA’s got from when some place was selling them for 8 to 10 and Flash I got used for less then $17.00.

Dororon Enma-kun Meeramera I’ll be picking up. The other series from NISA not sure about.

Deadman Wonderland will be getting bought. The rest from Funimation it’s wait and see. If I don’t have anything to get free shipping when it comes out I’ll probably blind buy something.

Other stuff I’m not sure about. Was hoping Bandai would say something about Turn A’s release time frame.
