Why Are the Transformers so WACK today?




I got up early yesterday–for once. And I wasted time by clicking through the channels. My first thought was: Hey! the Transformers are on, let me see whats up with that.

My second thought was: OMG! What the HELL did they do to Optimus Prime?! Was he on a DIET? Whats up with the slim hips and all the curves? He doesn't even sound like Prime. He sounds like a kid... and a geek one at that. Bumblebee looks tougher than Prime now! I mean, people, I know that cartoons are going the friendly way of the japanese but this is getting ridiculous They look so goofyyy!! So what? Does Prime transform into a mini-van now?? As time goes on these cartoons are getting less well drawn and has less of a message. The next generation of kids can look forward to drooling stick figures. My head hurts.

Well ya know I gotta say someth'n here. 1st the new look sucks. 2nd the 'friendly japanese animation' that america has taken on pisses me off too! There is so much more to japanese anime, the cutesy stuff is only a percentage of it. Do the masses of america acknowledge the darker edgier stuff? nooooo, that's too scary. Cute, stupid and harmless, that's what we like. And damn, the cute japanese stuff could still kick the new transformers asses!
