Takara Tomy has created a special page for upcoming broadcast of Transformers Animated in Japan.
This dedicated page for Transformers Animated consists of subsection for toys, characters, movie, wallpaper etc.
As the website is still new, much of the information still not available such as Takara Tomy version of the toys. However, the first movie of the Transformers Animated is available now online.
Check out Takara's website here
Stay tuned to Seibertron, Ultimate Resource of Transformers.

So they are getting their American names rather than their Japanese names. Boo, Takara. Reclaim your cultural heritage!

The Japanese are going to look at that animation style and cringe. I could be wrong, but I dont see this series being very well-accepted in Japan, not with such a strong history of beautifully animated giant robot series. They'll look at Animated, then at (insert any Japanese TF anime) and say "Those aren't TransFormers, let us show you how they should look" and they'll be right. What's wrong, Takara? You're usually the reliable one for high quality stuff.

I don't think it will be badly accepted in Japan, there are much worse animations there with good stories.
Still, I'm waiting for the mis-interpretations in "Animeated"
