Right Stuf is Up to Somethin'

A contest and a new license, but even I don't have the details!

So, Right Stuf is up to something, and they've issued a press release on it, but even I don't know the details. Suffice it to say, you can win stuff, and it looks like they'll be announcing a new license to boot-- so we can't go wrong there, can we?

First off, there's a countdown to the licensing announcement, which will be revealed on Wednesday, March 17th at 5pm CST (3pm PST/6pm EST), which is pretty standard fare-- past announcements revealed in this fashion have included Antique Bakery and ARIA
 
But then there's a twist: on the Coming Soon countdown page is an audio clue-- the first of many that will pop up on the same page, the Anime Today podcast, Twitter, Facebook, and "various locations around the Internet" that will give you the info you need to break the code and guess the license. The first person to guess right will get a $100 gift certificate to RightStuf, and four runners-up will get $25 gift certificates. 
 
I gotta tell you, the audio clue is pretty mystifying to me. I have a few ideas for what it might mean...how about you? And while we're at it, what do you want the license to be?

What? NO one has something they'd like to see licensed? Surely you jest!

While I'm not gonna take a shot at the contest, Denno Coil and Nodame Cantabile are titles I'd like to see licensed.

@Dream: Oo, Nodame'd be great! 
 
I keep on dreaming of a Kaiba license, but I know it's horribly unlikely ^^;

And the newly licensed title is the original Dirty Pair TV series from the 1980s.

Done, I'll get on writing that up as soon as I finish lunch.
