Immediate Transfiguration

Titles are almost identical, except for the Japanese usage of 変身 henshin for 'transfiguration' rather than 変形 henkei, which also means 'transformation, metamorphosis'. Henshin is a word beloved of manga and anime characters.

The Vietnamese translator appears to have mistaken 'intermediate' for 'immediate', resulting in a title that is quite different in meaning from the English.
