Well besides Slime? Dropped Banished Hero. Level 2 Cheat skill is still pretty good thanks to Fenrys showing up. Re:Monster has it’s moments too. ( Had to scratch my head that people were bitching about Goboru getting laid in the latest EP of Re: Monster)

Bōken Tairiku Ania Kingdom Stop-Motion TV Anime Gets 2nd Season in Summer

Toy animal franchise reveals 3 new characters

7th Prince is A WHOLE LOT OF CHEESECAKE!!!

Aristocrat with an appraisal skill is… There… But the second episode is slightly better than the first… Being honest that I’m really hoping it gets better when Loli Mikan shows up… And the ED is beautiful…

The New Gate is Kirito getting Isekaied…

Chilling with a cute Foxgirl is enjoyable, mainly cause of said cute Foxgirl.

Banished former hero… Yeah… @Series5Ranger is better than me for already dropping it…

Slime, I’m not watching.

Konosuba, I still have to watch the second half of the Megumin prequel first.

Re:Monster, I’m not watching.

Yeah Konosuba is still great too

Japan’s Animation Home Video Sales Decrease Again by 8% in 2023

posted on 2024-04-22 15:00 EDT by Alex Mateo
Japanese home video sales down 0.4% from 2022

AniimEigo Town Hall

A reminder…We didn’t buy the whole company

  • MediaOCD now owns the brand and media business
  • Robert and Natsumi still own AnimEigo the Corporation
  • R&N still have full control over Macross II
  • R&N have 1-2 other Kickstarters to announce
  • MediaOCD gets to make “mass market” versions ONLY AFTER KS editions sell out

Our Goals
Keeping the Spirit of AnimEigo Alive

  • High quality, faithful presentations (incl. translation, video, design)
  • Direct fan interaction with staff*
  • Invite creator involvement*
  • Go SEVERAL extra miles
  • No “this is trash but it’ll sell” titles
  • Fewer titles, higher quality

What will change?
Most small details

  • More “normal” (non-KS) releases
  • Expanded scope into newer titles
  • Subtitles more in line with MedaOCD standards
  • Renewed focus on marketing, reaching broader anime audiences
  • Experiments with the web store
  • More crowdfunding? Maybe. We’ll wait for R&N to finish

Metal Skin Panic MADOX-01 Price Cut!!
Now only $17.99 (it was $24.99)

MediaOCD Store
Thank you to everyone who has ordered!

  • Well love it when you buy our discs, but tbh we get a LOT more money when you buy direct
  • All forthcoming releases will have web store exclusive slip covers
  • Shipping services by Fulfyld in Alabama
  • Customer service by Caleb (please be nice to him)

Some harsh realities…
Not to get all serious

  • Buying AnimEigo was EXPENSIVE for a tiny company like MediaOCD
  • It’ll take a while before we can afford big new titles
  • We need to raise some cash
  • The AnimEigo library has some bangers, but is only 8 anime and 2 samurai movies (make that one samurai movie)
  • WE ARE GONNA HAVE TO GO SLOW

Sort of an announcement
Riding Bean - mass market Blu-ray

  • New encode, menu and packaging
  • NOT INCLUDED: new Sonoda art/comic, mini game (those were KS exclusive)
  • Only $17.99
  • Coming in September

Rebuild of AnimEigo
The Blu-ray part, we’ve got down

  • Step 1: Preserve the classics
    Our goal: Keep “classic” AnimEigo titles in print
    Looking into making HD remasters for remaining DVD-only titles
    DVDs will stay in print until there’s a Blu-ray available

Rebuild of AnimEigo
The Blu-ray part, we’ve got down

  • Step 2: Introduce the classics to a new audience
    Make/encourage memes from our shows
    Build awareness with new merch drops
    Cut new trailers

Rebuild of AnimEigo
The Blu-ray part, we’ve got down

  • Step 3: License new shows
    Curated selection - better, not more
    Unearthed classics
    Looking at anything pre-2010
    Generally staying away from anything too trashy
    Goal: 1 release/month by 2025

Updating Existing Discs
Minor tweaks shall be made…

  • Bubblegum Crisis, Megazone 23, MADOX-01 will go OOP once stock runs out
  • Will be reissued with new packaging, slightly revised authoring (we’re moving replicators)
  • Will offer an upgrade program if significant enhancement are made

Q&A: more https://youtu.be9JmmDbL6p4

  • Gunsmith Cats BD re-release?
  • Probably not. Keep trying. Can’t get clearance for mass market release.[/QUOTE]
