Looks like Japan's getting a special 2-hour event with their Transformers: Prime dub. Says it's gonne be hosted by three of the voice actors (Miko's, Sierra's, and the Vehicons'), and will include both a look-back at the series thus far (from what's all aired in Japan so far) with some cast comments and an all new Tokyo Girls Style segment.

There's also gonna a comparison between the American and Japanese versions of episode 12, "Predatory", focusing on the changes made to Airachnid's character.

But, the links got the full story than my cliff notes. :P

Thanks to Seibertron member Sabrblade, we're now aware of a fan translation of a TakaraTomy advertisement for a late night, 2 hour Transformers Prime special that's set to air in Japan on August 12th. From 2:45-4:45 am!

The special will consist of a look back at all of the episodes and story, so far. It also has a section dedicated to showing the differences between the American and Japanese versions of Airachnid's introduction episode, Predatory, along with director Yoshikazu Iwanami's commentary on the episode.

As some of you may know, Airachnid's character is partially changed in the Japanese dub, making her statements and antics somewhat questionable for certain audiences. For those who don't know, our Airachnid is cold, intelligent and a murderer. Japan's Airachnid is "boy crazy", kooky, but still dangerous, among other things.

The special will be hosted by the voice actors for Miko, Sierra and the Vehicons, with comments from the cast, plus a special segment retrospective dealing with Transformers series of the past.

And last, but not least, a special moment with the Tokyo Girls Style group. The Tokyo Girls Style group are known, to us, for hosting the "Transformers Extra!" Arms Micron shorts that were seen on Japanese broadcasts and YouTube, earlier this year. They were small showcases containing info about the Arms Micron toys and how they work.

The special will air in Japan on August 12th at 2:45 am.

So there's a longstanding rule that sexy FemSpiderCons in North American TF CG series have to be somehow neutered-in-translation for Japanese audiences? Well, good thing Airachnid didn't scan Fowler's pet BIRD for her flight mode--wait! Fowl...bird...sex-change...cuckolding...yaoi...AUGH, this is getting more screwed-up than Kiss Players!

And here I thought her lame toy was the worst injustice her character would suffer.

So, how much of Prime has aired in Japan so far? All of season 1?
