Transformers Go! Anime Confirmed

Postby Va'al » Thu Apr 25, 2013 4:30 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Update - We initially reported that Transformers Go! would be a TV series airing in Japan in 2013, starting in July.
We now have confirmation from the TFYuki Twitter account that this is not the case: Transformers Go! will be a straight to DVD series, supplement to the TV magazine.

We did get a better look at both combiner characters, including the so far teased Decepticon beast-combiner! Image mirrored from /4chan/ below. And thanks to TFYuki, we now know the names of the two combiners: Gokenzan and Gogekisou.

TFYuki wrote:Transformers GO! anime is NOT TV series. It will be "supplement" anime DVD series for TV-kun and TV Magazine.

It looks to me like the cartoon will be very poor and the robots will look way cooler on screen than in toy form.

Is this the 10th. anniversary of Energon or something?

This seems like a step back, honestly. If it does come here, it's kinda switchin' gears in the wrong direction.

i don't like them either but they can't be ****** as they're very popular with kids today (pokemon in particular)

Should a toyline and 'kids' cartoon really be aimed at adults?! if the formula (pokemon style) works with other franchises and sells BIG then why not for transformers too.

Looks like King of Braves meets digimon. While I look forward to all this has to offer. Part of me hopes the Prime characters will appear giving a pseudo season 4. Want the toys big time. Autobots will be my classic headmaster juniors.

So this :APPLAUSE:

Anyway, why are some saying it will be like Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Bakugan or even B-Daman and the like (coincidentally, the only kind that gets adapted for the US. Odd...). If anything, I expect it to be like Brave, Eldoran or even Machine Robo Rescue, as I'm not seeing "Gotta collect'em/catch'em all" anywhere. There are more animes than that, people ;)

I know this seems strange since Transformers are from Japan but...has anyone ever thought mow much Japanese original characters look nothing like other Transformers? Dai Atlas, Deathsaurus, Star Convoy...and these. They look more like Gundam than transformers. They are too ornate and there are far too many colors. It's not like there are rules for making a transformer but these seem like built machines rather than "living" things. As Gundam they look cool. As Transformers, I'd pass as they look like some closeout-store knockoff.

as for the series: Sigh, more of the same old cliched crap I bet. I really hope they don't import this as a new series like they did with Car Robots.
waiting for these:

Generations Arcee
Generations Optimus Prime
Generations Megatron
Generations Legends Cliffjumper
Generations...oh just the lot of them.

Wat.

The combiners do not look like transformers... The aesthetics are kinda off... :/

So, no beast hunters for takara? Why are they releasing BH toys under go! then?

Unless... The BH characters are re-animated and are actually in this show. :shock:

As of now, the combiners don't look too great. :/

Ha, we said essentially the same thing at the same time. Compare these with the Unicron Trilogy designs. I didn't like some of them (guns for fingers and such) but they still looked more like transformers somehow. These just don't. I dunno

I really don't know what to think of this at the moment. I suppose I'm just hoping that they make good Transformers figures out of this.

This is the first Japanese only anime since what, BWII? Of course maybe Hasbro will dub over it and air it on The Hub (dubbed on The Hub) and this'll be the next TF Series that has been teased.

GoKenzan and GoGekisou? Something tells me that's only the names when Kenzan Samurai and Gekisoumaru are on top. I'm expecting the other combos to be named as such:

Samurai Team
Jinbu on top: GoJinbu
Ganou on top: GoGanou

Ninja Team
Hishomaru on top: GoHisho
Sensuimaru on top: GoSensui

Basically, drop either "Samurai" or "-maru" and add "Go" in front.

Beast Wars Neo, I believe. I'd love to see some Hub-dubs too, but that probably won't happen until the next TF series after TF4 collapses the Aligned continuity into what's indisputably a continuity-family, or just breaks with it entirely. You know, until Hasbro has to abandon the level of brand-consistency they think Transformers has right now. Sorry Hasbro, but you made the franchise a multiverse since day one; there's no goin' back. Aligned was a very nice try, but we all gotta' move on to the next phase sometime.

An OVA supplement makes sense if GO! is also Beast Hunters. At first, I thought they'd use this anime to pad BH out from 13 eps to 26, splitting each one in half, then airing 10-13 minutes of the anime to pad out the half hour, sort of like Takara doing their own DC Nation block. The approach they're actually taking makes more sense. Looking forward to it.
