That was an awesome English version of the first Yōkai Exercise video. Smile The music and the lyrics (at least some of them) are close to the Japanese version of this song.

The first English dubbed episodes yesterday showed a lot of promise. It's a pretty good dub so far (Whisper gave three possible translations for the word yokai, which is excellent), and I love the humor they've used (Bug Wiki, Yokai Wiki, Eye of the Tiger). I was genuinely surprised at the ending song closely matching the feel and a portion of the lyrics. Maybe we really don't have anything to worry about with this show's dub after all.

Episode 1 was very VERY surprisingly well dubbed. Surprisingly, the original music was kept (which is rare for any current kids anime being shown in the U.S other than Pokemon) the voices all fit the characters very well.

I really love the dub. They kept the music as well as opening and ending. I'm also surprised they didn't cut the ending short like they did with the opening.

I can't wait to play the game.
