"Created in Japan in 1984." - The pre-TF toy molds, yes. The Transformers franchise itself, no.

"And their anime and movies are also very popular." - Not every TF cartoon ever produced was an anime. I know the word refers to all cartoons in Japan, but this doesn't apply for the rest of the world. ;)

When Hisao Nishimoto is speaking, the subs misspell the word "addition" as "addiiton". :roll:

But aside from those bits, this was a VERY good watch. We need more Takara-based production media like this more often. We always get to hear from Hasbro; let us hear more from Takara once in a while. 8)
