Mangagamer might be selling Hard Copies in an unlikely place...?
Weren't they talking to JAST about selling Hard Copies on the JAST website?

Mangagamer sold out of just about everything except their games.

The only other con MG is attending this year is Otakon.

Way to misinterpret information. None of Overdrive's employees work as translators for MangaGamer, and none of MangaGamer's translators are unpaid. The head of Overdrive, Bamboo, is also the head of MangaGamer, and he does not get paid for it. The rest of the MangaGamer staff just gets paid for their work.

Most of the games ARE in the red, only a few of MangaGamer's titles have made actual profit. So go buy Kara no Shoujo, people, MG needs the money.

Don't forget Koihime Musou
100 or so sales till it reaches 1000 which is apparently the break-even point.

Dub fans need a life? Sub-extremists need to be reevaluated as a sub-only utopia is entirely impossible. So let's stop arguing over other people's tastes (mind you, some dubs are really excellent and even surpass the originals).

Airport security generally hates anything with gel in it, so ofc they won't like it. Guy should've used his brain and put it in his checked luggage instead.

And I think Mangagamer have better things to spend their money on than a dub for ef. It's gonna be really expensive, delay the game further and I don't think it'll attract that many new customers anyway. Dubs are dying, and the only people who seem to like them are either casuals or the denizens of Anime News Network. Not that dubs are bad by default (Studio Ghibli films have great dubs with famous actors, and I have a special place in my heart for the Ranma 1/2 dub), they're just not as popular as they used to be, and probably not the direction a niche company like mangagamer should be going in.

I had this pointed out to me:

http://www.siliconera.com/2011/06/27...vels-overseas/

Visual Arts is in-fact interested in the Western Market, however its not profitable enough for them to expand.

He later admitted that he was, of course, interested in the overseas market, but only if it would be profitable.

maybe if they're this

(for the record I don't approve of subtitles either, any translation pretty much irrevocably ruins whatever the original content was. of course dubs then take the mangled corpse, run it through a meat grinder a couple of times, and rape the unrecognizable remains with pit bulls, so they're still worse)

this is floating around 4chan and someone on the MG forums referenced it too.
Uhh... it seems I've been severely misquoted. I said nothing about a dub at all. (Personally, I don't even like dubs except for the very few rare exceptions that actually manage to be good. In fact, i dislike them to the extent of paying the extra money just to import that Japanese version of many games like Catherine when they don't include an option for the JPN voices.)

What I said is that I was aware they'd licensed ef, and had already gave them my card in hopes of arranging another cross-promotion. (Along the same vein as Koihime's).

I really don't see us (MangaGamer) having anything to do with any dubs anytime soon. They're expensive, and I'm pretty sure the majority of our audience wouldn't even want them (though feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.)

Aksys Games is having a survey asking gamers what do they want to be included with Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom limited edition.
What Do You Want in the Hakuoki Limited Edition Package?
http://www.aksysgames.com/2011/07/07...ition-package/

link found through: http://www.siliconera.com/2011/07/07...ition-release/

note, Hakuokis is an otome VN to be release on the PSP next year. The PSP is regional free, so people shouldn't be worried about importing the game.

We might be getting English Edelweiss on the iOS and an English All Ages port for the website (which will probably get a hard copy release).

Download version of Yukkuri Panic is out

http://www.jastusa.com/forums/viewto...art=25#p107442

Yukkuri Panic comes with a duel sided poster. One side features School days, the other side shows the JAST USA catalog.

Considering i haven't seen it mentioned before, I'm assuming the AX copies didn't include it.

The JAST catalog has been a dual-sided poster for years. The poster you get is quite random though a School Days one sounds nice. Its likely they were at AX (and will be at SDCC/etc)
