Animation doesn't look as bad as I initially predicted but I don't plan on watching it.

I personally find the derpy beast modes endearing. :lol: And the combined forms for the Beast bots should be a bit more promising.

OMGTHATLOOKSSOFREAKINGAWESOOOOOOME!!!

And this confirms it. The two teams are not simple the "Samurai Team" and "Shinobi Team", but the "Swordbot Samurai Team" and "Swordbot Shinobi Team".

I am now officially psyched for this series! It looks freakin' AMAZING!

Sanjō Gattai! Go-Kenzan!
Sanjō Gattai! Go-Jinbu!
Sanjō Gattai! Go-Gan'ō

Time travel, perhaps?

Or the battle could be a reenactment.

Yeah, no clue. I'd say it's safe to assume, from the humans' clothing, that it takes place in modern day/future... I'd wager that was just for effect, what with them being the "Samurai" and "Shinobi" teams.

I have to say, the animation looks really nice! :APPLAUSE: Even throwing out the fact that it's a "filler" series... and thrown together as a mish-mash of half Beast Hunters, and half ninja/samurai bots. I'd totally watch this. Will have to ask around to hunt for some way to view it as it's airing.

Don't think it's the Ripclaw design either. I do believe it is Predaking; the heavily segmented tail with the single blade at the end, the chunky lower legs, and the skirt armour and forearms blasters of the Ultimate class figure.

Huh, interesting. It seems like the Samurai and Shinobi teams take traditionalism to a whole new level with the Kanji, the name of their fighting style and their dialects:

Kenzan: 緊急二刀流 (kinkyunitouryu) "Emergency Two-Sword Style"
Jinbu: 超空長刀流 (choukuuchoutouryu) "Transcending Longsword Style"
Gan'Ou: 消防突撃流 (shouboutotsugekiryu) "Fire Fighting Assault Style"

Furhtermore, the big Kanji in the background all relate to their name (and their associated Arms Micron):

Kenzan: 斬 (zan) Cut, Slash
Jinbu: (迅 (jin) Rapid, Swift
Gan'ou (巌 (gan) Boulder (that was hard to figure out)

Thank my online Japanese and Kanji Dictionaries for those. :)

BUDORA!!!!!!!!! :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK:

OPTIMUS!!!! IN HIS BEAST HUNTERS BODY!!!!! Drawn in the Go! art style too! Beast Hunter Optimus is going to be in this show to some extent! :michaelbay: :michaelbay:

ALL the Predacons get screentime in this show! 8)

Gekisomaru's voice sounds a little funny.

Hishomaru's animation model makes his toy's beat mode look somewhat decent.

All three Sanjou Gattai look AWESOME! Am sad that the Shinobi Team didn't get shown off like the Samurai Team did.

Can anyone here who hasa better understanding of Japanese note if anything particularly specific that might be worth pointing out was spoken of in this video? ;)

Oh I know, but if you have any knowledge of the Japanese language you're miles ahead of me! Anytime I post anything Japanese I await you and Sabrblade to let me know where I've gone astray.

The Takara Tomy YouTube channel has uploaded yet another video to promote the Transformers Go! animation. The clip features most of the characters we have already seen, with the addition of Autobot leader Optimus Prime, in his Beast Hunters jetpacked incarnation.

Take a look at the embedded video below!

It's a direct-to-DVD series with each episode being included with Japanese magazines. All episodes for the Swordbot Samurai Team come with TV-Kun Magazine, while all episodes for the Swordbot Shinobi Team come with TV Magazine. We know not how long each episode will be, how many there will be, or exactly when they will come out, IIRC.

So the only animation in that clip was when of the Swordbot team. The rest were still frame pans and zooms. Clearly this will be a landmark achievement in animated entertainment.

It's you, Japanese females have a much higher pitch than that. The pitches of the Shinobi Team is indeed slightly higher, which shows they're younger and more free-spirited than their Samurai counterparts.

Pretty sure he forget the key phrase "In my opinion..."

I dis on stuff here all the time (mostly because I'm just a cynical ***hole and can't seem to keep my mouth shut) but I always make sure to cover my butt and say that I'm only expressing my opinion.
Except in the case above where I said I was a cynical ***hole. That's pretty much a proven fact and any number of members on here will whole-heartedly agree. ;)

So My Beast Hunters Voyager Prime is actually a Japanese Transformers... No wonder the toy bears no resemblance to the CG. A cheap move by Hasbro IMO. :(

No resemblance? Besides the head and the ab spikes, and some coloring issues, it looks exactly like the CG model. And frankly I can let that slide because CHEST SPIKES. SPIKE TRUCK. RAH.

"Exactly" yet you acknowledge differences. Your comment contradicts itself. Good on you mate. :D
