I'm not going to watch the episode raw. I'm waiting for either TV-Nihon to get off their butts and sub the episode, or for METAsubs to get to a point where they can sub the episode.
I understand that the folks at METAsubs have been having some difficulties they've had to sort out before they can get back to subbing this show and so I can be patient for their aubbed release, but TV-Nihon has given no such explanation and so are making me impatient
with their subbed release.
Also, for what it's worth, guys, this is episode 2 of the Shinobi Volume.

Then they combine, and the human invokes the power of the Legend Disc, allowing the 'Bots to combine. The bots take down the Pred combiner, Predacons retreat. Ho-hum,
That's the idea. It's a children's anime. And running at only ~10 minutes in length, not much more they can do for these early series episodes. This is not a full blown, high-budget, Television quality cartoon series. It's just a series of DVD shorts not meant to be taken as seriously as something like TF: Prime (which many folks seem to have been spoiled by).

Yup. Doesn't bother me. It's like a Tokusatsu in anime form.

Not of this episode, though.
wow... I would rather watch RiD than this... why is abomination black/grey but his individual parts all have color?
1. You misspelled "Abominus".
2. That's not Abominus, that's Goradora.
3. The reason he's black is because that's his upgraded form, with his components having merged in a "Black Jaki Gattai" instead of a regular "Jaki Gattai" (even though I haven't watched this episode yet, I know this from it happening in another episode that I have seen).
4. RiD is wonderful.
