I'm in agreement that the show looks good and has a lot of promise, but I have at least two issues with it. 1) Why the smeg do the Japanese keep insisting that everyone of them call out their own, individual transformation? That's one of the issues I have with Beast Wars.
2) It looks like they're rehashing "Starvengers" with the formation flips.

What the hey?! If they were gonna put it online, why didn't they do so before now? It's been put online by fans, debated about, and fansubbed in English over and over again, and it's only now being uploaded officially?
Get on the ball, Takara.

This show is uninspiring already. Same stupid concept; bad guys want something the main protagonist has.
I hope it ends soon. I didn't ask for Energon/Cybertron-style animation back, either.

Pretty formulaic thus far as I had predicted, I doubt it will get deviate much but the animation is pretty good.

A lot of folks need to realize that is not some high grade, full-fledged, standard television series, nor is it meant to be. It's a short, 12-minute, pack-in bonus that comes an extra to a magazine subscription. It's not going to be on the same level as something like TF: Prime or even the Unicron Trilogy shows. It's supposed to be simple, straighforward, and short. Nothing special in the slightest.
The best this could match up to would be the RobotMasters pack-in DVDs, or even the ROTF Cyber Missions online mini-episodes (the latter of which had similarly fixed faces). But anyone looking for depth in this show, or coming into it with high expectations, is fooling themselves.
Ugh, the battles in this series are so formulaic. Predacons attack, Autobots arrive. Preds send out the combiner team, they get their asses whooped. Then they combine, and the human invokes the power of the Legend Disc, allowing the 'Bots to combine. The bots take down the Pred combiner, Predacons retreat. Ho-hum,

For what its worth, TV-Nihon (free fan sub group) has english subtitled episodes of this series on their website.

This is supposed to be the followup to the Prime series? Really? Nowonder Prime looked mortified when they was talking to him, even he cant believe it. And that kid.... hes more annoying that all 3 of the kids on prime combined on there most annoying day. And the animation/cgi its almost like this series and Bay are in a contest to see who can put out the worst possible crap, the winner gets all the braindead zombies that cant wait to throw money at hasblow/takara/bay who will continue to see and prove that there indeed are suckers born every minute. But, thats just my opinion.

I'm not going to watch the episode raw. I'm waiting for either TV-Nihon to get off their butts and sub the episode, or for METAsubs to get to a point where they can sub the episode.
I understand that the folks at METAsubs have been having some difficulties they've had to sort out before they can get back to subbing this show and so I can be patient for their aubbed release, but TV-Nihon has given no such explanation and so are making me impatient with their subbed release.
Also, for what it's worth, guys, this is episode 2 of the Shinobi Volume.

That's the idea. It's a children's anime. And running at only ~10 minutes in length, not much more they can do for these early series episodes. This is not a full blown, high-budget, Television quality cartoon series. It's just a series of DVD shorts not meant to be taken as seriously as something like TF: Prime (which many folks seem to have been spoiled by).

Yup. Doesn't bother me. It's like a Tokusatsu in anime form.

Not of this episode, though.

1. You misspelled "Abominus".
2. That's not Abominus, that's Goradora.
3. The reason he's black is because that's his upgraded form, with his components having merged in a "Black Jaki Gattai" instead of a regular "Jaki Gattai" (even though I haven't watched this episode yet, I know this from it happening in another episode that I have seen).
4. RiD is wonderful.
