TRANSFORMERS SUPER LIFEFORM BEAST WARS RETURNS BLU RAY!
Super Life-Form Transformers: Beast Wars II (超生命体トランスフォーマー ビーストウォーズⅡ, Chō Seimeitai Toransufōmā: Bīsuto Wōzu Sekando) is a 1998 Japanese Transformers anime series, spawning a movie and a toyline. It was broadcast on TV Tokyo from April 1998 to January 1999, and was the first Transformers anime to be produced by Nihon Ad Systems and animated by the studio Ashi Productions. The series was preceded by Beast Wars: Transformers, and was followed by Super Life-Form Transformers: Beast Wars Neo. The series has a much lighter tone and is aimed more towards children, whereas the more accessible Beast Wars was intended for a wider age range. The anime uses conventional animation rather than the CGI of its predecessor. With the exception of the faction leaders, all of the characters within the toyline are either remolds, reissues, or recolors of earlier Beast Wars or Generation 2/Machine Wars toys.
In addition to the 43 episodes, there is also a 50-minute movie, Beast Wars II: Lio Convoy's Close Call!, which takes place sometime between episodes 32 and 38, and a manga adaptation by Shoji Imaki. The only other country it was published in is Korea, and it was done by Daewon Media. The anime was also released in Korea, and it was broadcast on SBS.
