Questions and Answers
Q: Why is Persona4 being released in such an odd fashion? (DVD is 12 episodes, Blu-Ray is 9 episodes)
A: This is happening because we are sourcing the Blu-Ray gear from Europe, which is cheaper. We also worked out that is was cheaper to do the DVD release over 4 sets than the six needed if we aligned the two. The Blu-Ray release will also have both English and Japanese audio on the disc that is not on the US release.
Q: Will Madman be also releasing the Blood C Movie?
A: Yes. It will definitely be released after the series is finished.
Q: Will the true ending be available for Persona4?
A: Yes, the true ending will be available on the final release.
Q: Any chance of getting Macross?
A: Yeah, no. It's in a term we call ‘licensing hell’, to the point where we gave up on Robotech, so someone else is doing it. We would love nothing more than to do all of Macross, but it is not something we will be able to do for the time being.
Q: Will there be a release of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica Movies?
A: My lips are sealed, for this week.
Q: Is there any chance of releasing Cat Shit One?
A: Not at the moment, but thankyou for the suggestion.
Q: Is there information on the Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo movie?
A: Lips are sealed at the moment. We're trying to do what we can, but we can not tell you yet though.
