Anime Expo 2005
Anime Expo - The Right Stuf International
by Bamboo Dong,
TRSI's panel started off Friday afternoon with a reel of trailers for their upcoming releases and current properties. The tape included clips from Shingu: Secret of the Stellar Wars, Boogiepop & Others, Piano, Boys Be, To Heart, 2X2=Shinobuden (Ninja Nonsense).
A new acquisition, 2X2=Shinobuden is scheduled to be out by the end of the year, or early next year. Kleckner expressed his love for the series and encouraged everyone to check it out.
Three new hentai titles were also picked up for release under the Critical Mass label.
As far as store-related business, TRSI finished their move to a bigger location, and have started shipping orders already.
After all the announcements were made, Kleckner opened up the floor to a Q&A session.
Dubbing has already finished on Boys Be, and the first disc is expected to be released sometime later this year. To Heart will probably not be released until next year, after the video is cleaned up.
When asked about Comic Party Revolution, Kleckner said that he couldn't yet comment on it. No comments could be made about plans for future soundtracks for Comic Party and To Heart either.
