This thread is a discussion on Transformers Animated in Japan. There are clearly mixed reviews on this. As you all know, this is no mere dub w/ slight changes in order to tie w/ the live movies. Also, I believe that during this time can decide the future of Transformers in Japan. As of now, Takara is in its 4th episode of Animated which is the Soundwave episode which was supposed to be the 10th one to air. This is a big move. It makes me wonder what Takara will do. Could new additional episodes be made? Hopefully, OVAs could happen, like Scramble City. A factor that could determine this is the popularity of the series. Animated in America didn't seem great. In fact, seeing the stuff in America, I felt that as if it was holding back on us. So I'm thinking the can be further surprises by Takara in order to increase the popularity. I do like the theme song made by JAM Project. Maybe there will be another theme song. The seiyuu chosen is fits these characters will. Notable ones are Optimus Prime/Convoy- Hiroki Takahashi, Ironhide- Kenta Miyake, Ratchet- Toru Okawa, and Megatron- Norio Wakamoto.
