Okay so TF Prime has a fantastic score with a film quality feel to it and the Japanese are using this?? Not knocking the song or group, but it just doesn't feel like it fits to me. I have now been reminded of why I gave up anime years ago and have no interest in most Japanese pop culture anymore, it has become far too goofy/weird/bubblegum pop for my taste. I just hope this thing never makes it way into the US release in any way shape or form.
Is it just me, or is there way more English than Japanese in that Japanese song? O.o
Since it still sounds like a rap to me, I said it once before and I'll say it again:
WHY?!!!! Why another rap theme song?!!!
It barely worked for Beast Wars (though, most would say that it *didn't* work at all), so why would they ever try it again with this?!!!
Transformers and rap do NOT mix! In ANY form.
Also, I just found this:
The song sounds a little better in this video, but not by much.
Never watch Japanese versions of shows or anime anyway I suppose. Though I'm guessing someone will like it.
You're missing out. And you're gonna kinda have to with the Shout! Factory DVDs, of the Japaense G1 cartoons.
Now Jam Project's Animated Intro - that was a theme song.
Amen! Transformers EVO. =

Yes. Whiule the Japanese are all for Gratuitous English, the level of it in this song is ridiculous.

What does Korea have to do with this?

Compared to this.
Usually I can actually withstand the force of terrible J/K-pop, since I simply cannot understand the lyrics. But as an opening/ending theme for TFPrime? Any words I could use to describe my feelings would be highly offensive and I'm not certain I could get away with that language on this board. Heck I wouldn't even call this good for a J-pop song.
