    "Airachnid in the American show is a hunter/destroyer of rare species, a master of manipulation rivaling Starscream himself, and a downright psychotic murderer. But for our show, she is a female Pepe Le Pew. How Kawaii~Desu~!"

    Vehicon's voice actor - Yuuki Tai is Robot(including TF) otaku irl. I laughed when I saw him in the official interview he asked "why G1 Menasor doesn't be reissued?" :)  he also did Wheeljack's voice and it was a great job.

    I wonder how well the Japanese are taking the Prime kids.

    Do they even like Bumblebee over there?

    What heresy is this?

    Everyone everywhere in the universe loves Bumblebee! Friend Hasbro says so!

    I am interested in seeing this. Are any of the usual groups out there subbing Japanese Prime?

    This will definitely need a sub on Youtube if someone would be kind enough to post it.

    I'd watch this if it was subbed off course.

    I was trying to look at this last night, thanks SydneyY for translating. :thumb 

    Comes on at a very convenient time, doesn't it? Set those DVR's!!

    This would be interesting to see, maybe it could be included in a future DVD release???

    OK I am confused. Why would they air this special at 2:45am to 4:45am??? Who are they expecting to watch it? Are kids up at that time in Japan? I know I'd never be up watching TV at that time. What time does the actual show air? Sounds more like they made it and the station had no time for it so they used it to fill some time.

    I DVR several series at that hour, sometimes I'm even up. :thumb

    I'm going to be very interested to hear what possessed them to change Airachnid from a lethal psychopath into a babbling, hissing, laughing stock in love with a human teenager.

    It's most definitely made to air for this time. 2 hours is too long of a timeslot for this special to have been invisioned for another time. It's likely being aimed at the hardcore collector/otaku market rather than kids, as the look back through the franchise's history shows.

    Which they finally talk about Yandere Airachnid to the public. I wonder if 10 year kids watching Prime in Japan understand the pervertedness especially since even some kiddie anime has fanservice.

    Everyone in Japan is mandated to own a DVR. Violators are pointed at in public.
