This is like Plan 9 in that it's so terrible that it's amusing.

This is fantastically ridiculous. The only way this could have been better is if the opening was just Knockout dancing to the music.

Also, it amuses me that Arcee is getting bottom billing in all the Japanese Prime stuff (which is pretty much par for the course for all female characters in Japanese media aimed at boys) despite being arguably the main character of the series.

They did exactly what I wanted them to and I dig it, right on.
Made it kinda boppy and took you out of all the seriousness, as in all a Japanese opening usually does, just kind of makes you look at the bigger picture. So I dig this.

Also, to make fun or to tell a Japanese native to get a pronunciation guide is a bit much, I would almost accuse it as bigotry but that is a bit far. let's just leave it at "fucked up".

I guess after seeing Animateds AMAZING Japanese intro, I had high hopes ^^"

I'll just stick with the English version with the cool silent intro.

~Oh, yes, it is I, Grimlock... and so much more now~

I really don't like that opening at all. That said, I find it quite amusing. xD

Sorry BigBang. I'm not your anti-fan, but that song doesn't fit with this show AT ALL.
I don't want to even talk about that OP clip. WHAT THE HELL IS I WATCHED?

I saw the show and have hope for it. the dub work is almost serious and loyal to the original, not like Japanese-dubbled Beast Wars that is sometime arguable in the Japanese fandom. and the cast - especially Shizuka Ito(Arcee)'s voice is so damn sexy! I really love her voicework. fyi she's dubbing Ahsoka Tano's voice too. ~~~

about the songs: the opening is total bullshit. will not fit for *any* animation program. another K-poop marketing fail, now they are BIG DUNG! I'll skip the opening sequence next time. the ending is not bad at all. typical anime tie-in song.

and Tokyo Girls' Style's mini-corner is totally nonsense. the concept reminds me of Kamen Rider Fourze's Rabbit Hatch though.
