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? ;)

So the series is split between the two Magazines: Samurai goes to TV Boy and Shinobi to TV Magazine. Clever.

You're welcome, but... You do realise my observations can't be 100% correct all the time, right? I'm just dying here waiting for someone to correct me :lol:

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.

Is it just me, or does Tweedie the Derpy Bird sound female?

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.
