Cyberverse is getting a Japanese dub but it won't be airing on tv but instead be a online streaming thing.

I'm really hoping they assemble a good seiyuu cast for this.

Japanese dub cast of Cyberverse announced.

- Windblade - Aoi Yuuki
- Grimlock - Tetsu Inada
- Starscream - Satoshi Tsuruoka
- Bumblebee - Ryohei Kimura
- Optimus Prime - Takehito Koyasu
- Megatron - Shigeru Chiba

Ryohei Kimura has voiced Bumblebee for the 4th time, i guess he really is their definitive seiyuu for the yellow bug boi.

Aoi Yuuki now gets another red female Transformer to voice immediately following voicing Shatter in Bumblebee.

Satoshi Tsuroka returns to Starscream after voicing him in Prime and the biggest surprise of all Takehito Koyasu and Shigeru Chiba reprising Optimus and Megatron from the Beast Wars dub.

also I'm so **** happy Tetsu Inada is voicing Grimlock, that is perfect casting.

Having watched a bit of the Japanese dub it's a bit more restrained from Yoshikazu Iwanami's other Transformers dub, they still have some weird vocal ticks and i assume some comedic ad-libbing, Shockwave especially goes from cold and calculating to loud and shouty.

However in Megatron Is My Hero Shigeru Chiba finally gets to portray a more serious, less comedic Megatron and he nails it, it's pretty similar to his Raditz which is how i'd picture a less goofier Chiba Megatron sounding. The scene where Megatron rips out Bumblebee's voice is is treated with about the same seriousness and gravitas as it did in the original (I was worried they'd make it really comedic but they didn't.) He definitely fits this Megatron more than the Beast Wars version. Takehito Koyasu as Optimus Prime is awesome as you'd expect. Aoi Yuki is a great fit for Windblade, Tetsu Inada is exactly how you'd imagine Grimlock sounding in Japanese. Satoshi Tsuroka definitely works better as Cyberverse Starscream than Prime Starscream that's for sure.

However I do think Thundercracker and Shockwave are the weak links of an otherwise decent Japanese dub. Thundercracker sounds really dumb like a typical deep dumb guy and Shockwave....well he's not the cold and calculating logical machine he is in English.

also in the Japanese dub Velocitron is called Speedia like it was in Galaxy Force, first time a character/place name was changed for the dub but it's a nice call back impressive considering Iwanami didn't voice/sound direct for Galaxy Force.
