Karyuudo Fansubs Working On ‘Beast Wars II’, Preview Episode Released
The Karyuudo Fansubs group, whose previous projects have included Car Robots and Legend of the Microns, have announced on their blog that their next subtitling project will be Beast Wars II, and have released a full episode as a preview.
Beast Wars II is one of the two cartoons produced by Takara in the 1990s between their dubbed releases of the American Beast Wars cartoon. This subtitling project is particularly exciting for the Western Transformers fandom, as the series has never before been dubbed or subtitled in its entirety. Here’s what Karyuudo Fansubs had to say:
I just wanted to take the time out to thank each and every one of you for your kind words and support throughout each of our projects, and for finally hitting 100 Likes on our Facebook page.
As many of you know, we’ve been hard at work on our next series and I’m sure a lot of you are excited to hear what we have in store. So today, I’m happy to officially announce that our next series will be Beast Wars Second. I’m sure a lot of you have been patiently waiting for this series to be subtitled for a long time, and we’re excited to be able to bring this series to the Transformers fandom.
Many of you probably would like to know when this will be completed for release. Unfortunately we cannot provide a date for this release other than saying we’re aiming for it to be completed this year. As most of you know, we don’t usually announce our releases until the last minute when they’re about 95% complete, however, with a series like Beast Wars Second, we understand how many of you out there want to see this completed, and at least now, you’ve got a confirmation that this is happening. When we are close to a release date, you will know through our Facebook page and through the forums that we frequent. For now, we’d like to reward everyone with a preview of what’s to come.
The preview comes in the form of episode 18, “The Black Lio Convoy”, which you can view below.
