Making a Living in Manga in Japan with Felipe Smith
Lost in Translation
Q: Any chance of more Macross?
A: No. The Macross situation is dire and there's not much we can do about it. It's all tied up with companies.
Q: When will Madman titles be coming to iTunes?
A: Movies already are, but TV Shows are on their way.
Q: Any chance of Angel Beats!?
A: Unfortunately not, there's a few reasons that I can't really talk about. (Dan) It's too depressing.
Q: Why did you change from the Vol 1 and Collector Boxes to just Collections?
A: Shelf space. Space is a premium at big chains and collections allow us to put more titles on the shelf. If we believe it can sell well in the 'old school' format, we will do that just like K-ON!. It's really becoming the norm with other TV releases from all studios, not just anime..
Q: Will you ever get Genshiken?
A: It was considered, but it's unlikely at the moment.
Q: Is there more Hellsing Ultimate coming out?
A: There's some licensing issues with Geneon and Universal at the moment. It will happen eventually.
Q: When will the second Gantz movie roughly come here?
A: It releases in Japan April 23. We're hoping to do a cinema run maybe in June, but that's not confirmed.
Q: Any word on the The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya?
A: We're doing it. We're hoping for a home video release later in the year, with maybe a screening beforehand.
