Q&A

15:15:40 <bay|AX|Sentai> Q: release format for ef and any possibility of the music for it?
15:15:55 <bay|AX|Sentai> A: no details i can give out, the ink is fairly fresh
15:16:10 <bay|AX|Sentai> I like the way we do it, when we announce stuff right with the solicitations


#115

Ef, Clannad on Bluray, and the Saiyuki OVAs with the original cast. Sentai just won the con for me! Hell, they did that just with ef. So psyched!


#116

15:17:02 <bay|AX|Sentai> Q: Macross Frontier? A: Can neither confirm or deny
15:17:07 <bay|AX|Sentai> Would love to do it
15:17:13 <bay|AX|Sentai> think it’s a really cool series, we’ll have to wait and see


#117

-lol-

15:18:49 <bay|AX|Sentai> Q: Second season for HSotD? A: Your guess is as good as mine.


#118

15:19:49 <bay|AX|Sentai> Q: (Some guy is making his point against sub only discs)
15:20:11 <bay|AX|Sentai> Will you be doing re-releases of old stuff with dubs? like hidamari?
15:20:18 <bay|AX|Sentai> A: That was actually a very special case
15:20:32 <bay|AX|Sentai> it depends, if a show… i don’t like to do that because it makes everyone stop and wait… it’s a really tricky thing to do
15:20:47 <bay|AX|Sentai> if a title came in and really blew us away for some reason, then maybe… but i don’t expect it to be a common thing
15:21:03 <bay|AX|Sentai> Clannad was special as we were able to get other companies to come in on it
15:21:11 <bay|AX|Sentai> leme give an example…
15:21:21 <bay|AX|Sentai> Demon King… Demon King we first were like ;… maybe it should be subtitle only
15:21:28 <bay|AX|Sentai> then we started streaming it online, and people watched it on TAN
15:21:36 <bay|AX|Sentai> and the numbers on it wer second only to HSotD
15:21:45 <bay|AX|Sentai> because you watched itt there, there was so much interest
15:21:52 <bay|AX|Sentai> so for shows liek that where you are streaming it…
15:22:00 <bay|AX|Sentai> that will have an effect


#119

15:22:30 <bay|AX|Sentai> Q: Are you going to release more gintama?
15:22:38 <bay|AX|Sentai> A: uhhh…i don’t know of any that’s currently on the schedule at the moment
15:22:45 <bay|AX|Sentai> i’ll say i can neither confirm or deny


#120

15:12:10 <bay|AX|Sentai> the new saiyuki requiem ovas
15:12:16 <bay|AX|Sentai> those will have the original ADV dub cast

I know of at least one voice actor who is really happy.


#121

15:23:14 <bay|AX|Sentai> Q: 2nd season of Angel Beats? A: haven’t heard anything official about that…


#122

15:25:21 <bay|AX|Sentai> Q: Samurai Girls… read there is an OVA with the TV?.. Confirm you have the OVAs?
15:25:45 <bay|AX|Sentai> A: We have… these little mini…video comic things that they got… i don’t recall what’s on there

15:26:10 <bay|AX|Sentai> Q: Eyeshield 21? A: same as gintama, none on imediate scheudle but we’ll see


#123

-lol-
PP should be happy…

15:27:17 <bay|AX|Sentai> Q: GS MIkami… would you be interested in other titles?
15:27:34 <bay|AX|Sentai> A: Yes, I would… remember, I’ve been in this industry forever and i was a fan before that, and no old school does not start in 2008
15:28:05 <bay|AX|Sentai> there’s a lot of those old school show that i think are really good, the animation might not be as pretty but they got good stories, they dont’ sell as well as new stuff but they sell enough to justify
15:28:16 <bay|AX|Sentai> we will be doing more as there are more of those shows we really love
15:28:29 <bay|AX|Sentai> a lot of those that yes, i want to do more

Yes indeed I am. Glad to know while they don’t sell like the new stuff they at least sell enough for them to look at other older titles. Love to see them maybe rescue something like Kimagure Orange Road.

:frowning:
Still no more Glass Mask it seems…

15:35:58 <bay|AX|Sentai> Q: second half of glass mask?
15:36:07 <bay|AX|Sentai> A: we would like to release it, the first part has not done as well as we hoped
15:36:31 <bay|AX|Sentai> we are trying to see if there is something we can work out where we can afford to release the second half, we are looking at it, but there is nothing right now
15:36:35 <bay|AX|Sentai> it’s a title that didn’t do well for us


#126

15:36:53 <bay|AX|Sentai> Q: How much does the dub increase the production costs?
15:37:03 <bay|AX|Sentai> A: I can’t give you an exact number except to say it’s significant
15:37:05 <bay|AX|Sentai> it’s quite a bit more
15:37:17 <bay|AX|Sentai> if anime sold like hollywood movies, we could dub everything and sell it for $7
15:37:29 <bay|AX|Sentai> but it’s a niche, it doesn’t sell that many units


#127

15:38:10 <bay|AX|Sentai> Q: Infinite Stratos on physical media? Dub?
15:38:19 <bay|AX|Sentai> A: i don’t know the exact date it’s coming out… iknow it’s in production
15:38:22 <bay|AX|Sentai> don’t know about dub
