    This is... interesting news (I choose the word interesting because it's nothing
    too surprising, but still worthy of mention... to some). Hasbro Studios has just
    recently closed deals to bring both Transformers Prime and
    My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic to Singapore’s kids’ channel; Okto.

    Other stations are picking up the shows as well.

    You can read more about it here:

    Didn't Beast Wars in Japan have the same opening US opening? I thought only BW2, the cell based animation got a new opening and show because it was, well, new. I would be impressed if Takara was willing to foot the bill for an all new opening and ending, but I doubt that's going to happen for a CG animated show, but I guess time will tell.

    I haven't seen anything yet stating when this show will start up in Japan, but if Japan follows movies schedules and what not, Japan will be the last once again when it comes to this shows release:(

    Japanese Beast Wars used clips from the show as its opening. However, it had an insanely awesome song which sounded kinda like the Japanese answer to War (What is it Good For?).

    Did it now? I suppose that's cool.
    I hate J-pop with a passion, but I just might have to check out this particular one. War is a classic:thumbs2:

    Great, now I have 'da da da dah HEAD ON! da da da dah HEAD ON!' playing in my mind lol. Ahh, Japanese Headmasters ^^

    It does seem like it's one step nearer for Australia, and yet stil as far away 'ti it happens. I'd like to see a dvd release down the line. Not sure if Madman would be quick to get behind that or whole series sets regardless of distributor. When TF Animated dvds were released in Australia the only ones I found in retail were a handful of episodes per pack, whomever put those out :/

    I just want to personally thank you for that info. I looked it up on Youtube. Who knew the Japanese could bring the funk like that.

    Yup. Mondays to Thursdays every week. Hopefully at the rate they're going they'll air the finale before it airs in the US, but I highly doubt so.

    We`re still getting Animated every morning over here on fox kids!! It must repeated over a few times by now though!! Usually with foreign shows you can toggle the audio between english and Japanese, but for some reason you can`t with Animated, Jap only, I hope this won`t be the case with Prime when it does eventually hits the screens here!

    Given that you live in Japan, could I assume you speak Japanese? If so, I would totally love to know what they're singing in the Japanese Beast Wars opening!

    You're welcome :thumb 

    By the way, you might enjoy the Beast Wars Neo opening. It's probably the most hilariously ill fitting theme song of all time:

    I'm still waiting for the day Takara will do CHROMED WHEELS AND WINDOWS.

    ... Unless they already did which I would not doubt.

    You could, but I wouldn't say that I'm perfect—I still make mistakes. Translating music or rap rather isn't an easy task; there’s always some hidden message which that isn’t obvious to the untrained ear, and then there’s the matter of English inserted into lyrics, which often makes it even harder as it’s usually wrong, redundant or Japanese-English (which is just all sorts of wrong).

    That would mean Japan will dub Prime. But I have a thought. Prime is 3D like Beast Wars. And if I remember right, Japan took alot of time dubbing Beast Wars. So much time to deal with that they made 2 of their own original shows which are Beast Wars 2 and Neo just to keep on track.
