In accordance with the Bumblebee movie, the official @Bumblebee_JP Twitter account is releasing a new chibi style anime series! They are 3 episodes in, each at around one minute and a half, and essentially retell the Bumblebee film.

Part 1 focuses on Bumblebee losing his memory, after Blitzwing attacks him, thus making him hide as a Volkswagen. Charlie finds him, and brings him to her home, which results in Bumblebee being scared of the dog, Conan. The tweet can be found here.

Part 2 starts off with Charlie wondering where Bumblebee hailed from, and they soon practice hiding, though Bumblebee doesn't seem to be good at it, destroying things. He accidently activates Optimus' holographic message, confusing the both of them. The tweet can be found here.

Part 3, Bumblebee learns how to cook! To no one's suprise, he absolutely fails, irritating Conan, destroying the inside of the house, and leaving the door open for Conan to run after. Charlie comes home, and chases after the dog, but they are aprehended by soldiers. Bumblebee comes and fights the men, and leaps away with Charlie and Conan. The tweet can be found here.

She's following the tradition of Akira from Zone then.

This series of shorts is called "Bumblebee's First Life on Earth".

Episode 1 is titled "Picked Up From The Junkyard", episode 2 is "Hiding In The Park!", and episode 3 is simply "Cooking!"

Charlie (and I think all of the other voices, but I'm not sure) is voiced by Ryohei Kimura.

Soo... I picked up the DVD/Digial/Blue-ry set for the Movie. Am I missing something, or are the Special Features only on the disc for the player I don’t have[/i? Haven’t looked to see if I can get into them with the Digital side yet, but if I can’t then frankly that’s a crock of spit. What’s even the point then of the DVD? I was on the fence whether I would even use the Digital option but reviews about the extras made it seem worthwhile. I never heard anywhere that they were Blu-Ray exclusive and I feel jipped.

Actually there's been a trend for a while (especially with Disney dvds) that they are just barebones releases, all the features are on blu Ray versions as a way to sell the format.
