Norio Wakamoto and JAM Project.
I submit that this is massively awesome.
Wakamoto as Megatron? I don't think a better choice exists.
I have no idea what is going on here. Norio who and JAM what?
My first thought every time I hear/see TFA Japan news is simply "Where the hell is a Season 3 DVD?!?"
I bet Japan gets it on DVD eventually, and those of us here in the rest of the world will have to buy it and hope the English version is on it.
JAM Project is always good.
Norio Wakamoto is a long-standing Japanese voice actor, known for playing deep, boisterous, and generally malicious characters. He'd be best known in North America as the voice of Street Fighter's M. Bison (or Vega, if you prefer).
JAM Project is a band/recording group consisting of pretty much all the hot-blooded singers you'll ever need. They're the go-to guys when it comes to cheesy hard-rock super robot riffs.
Wait... seriously?! JAM PROJECT. AS IN THE JAM PROJECT WITH MASAAKI ENDOH? AS IN THE MASAAKI ENDOH THAT SANG THE MOST MANLY OPENING THEME EVER?
Wakamoto is Megs AND he's singing the OP alongside JAM Project?! VERY YES.
I know sometimes they make a new opening animation for an imported series, I wonder if it will be the case for Animated? Would be cool to see an intro in high quality japanese animation for kicks.
Norio Wakamoto = Oskar von Reuenthal = Instant Win.
Impressive, I guess this isn't going to be a quick and dirty dub it and shove it on the air job then. They're putting some real effort in to make it a success.
Let's hope it works.
Norio Wakamoto is still hands down one of my favorite voice actors evah, and has even done Transformers before, Flame Convoy!
If the blu-ray has the English dub too, I may just have to import them this fall. It's a shame we can't get the show in widescreen and in HD here.
Awesome news. Norio Wakamoto is an excellent voice actor, I've heard him in other roles and there really is not anyone better suited to play the cold and calculating Animated Megatron than him. Especially if he can bring some of the menacing qualities from his role as the Emperor of Brittainia in Code Geass to bear.
Plus the battles between Animated Optimus and Megatron will take on a new dimension when you know it's also replaying Ryu VS M Bison. I wonder if they'll have some fun with that one? I could definitely see some kind of Dragon punch joke in the scene where Optimus uses the Allspark key to take down Megatron in Megatron Rising Part 2.
Isn't it funny how the Japenese always take Transformers seriously? I've always wished our Transformers series had unigue music for each series, instead of the basic "The Autobots destroy the evil etc. etc."
Except, apparently, for Beast Wars...
yeah bring it!!!!! i thought fit well with this qoute i do agree whats taking so long with season 3 didnt take them long with the first 2 seasons whas going on with this one are they planning more & better extra content would be nice kinda doubtful
Megatron voiced by Norio Wakamoto? Holy crap perfect choice. Can we expects some "ALL HAIL MEGATRON!"s from Lugnut? Also, JAM Project for the opening is awesome.
I'm sure not a fan of Animated, but I'd really like to see the theme that JAM project does.
THIS. For the love of all that's holy, THIS.
