It cannot be said enough. The internet has revolutionized the exchange of information, advanced the realm of entertainment, given us a new window to the world, and has forever changed how we spend our time. In a world of growing technology, video cassettes are slowly becoming obsolete. DVDs, though currently prominent in the consumer eye, may face the same threat of extinction in the near future. From network to network, YouTube to Hulu, TV shows and movies are pouring into the new wave of media distribution, whether it be by downloading or streaming. What does this mean for the anime and manga industry?

Mr. Kun Gao, CEO of Crunchyroll, opens the discussion at Anime Expo 2009. During his keynote speech, Mr. Gao explains how the value of the internet is changing anime. He begins his presentation by describing how disruptive technologies can create new and unexpected markets by applying different sets of values.

Opening with a looping trailer of their most recent and popular series, FUNimation’s panel at 2009's Anime Expo was all set to serve a packed auditorium.

This quickly cut into a showing of a trailer for the Trigun movie, which has long been in the planning stages according to updates from animation studio Madhouse over the years since 2005. The trailer featured many familiar faces that fans of the series will surely recognize and a lot of gun fighting, as one would expect from the famed title. Promotional text pointed toward two primary battles in the film: Vash vs. the world’s ultimate thief, as well as Vash vs. Wolfwood, a content fans will surely be excited to see.

Speaker Adam Sheehan began his speech to the audience after the applause had ceased, stating that he had a lot to present, and that FUNimation had a lot of great announcements and projects they are working on.
