Hum... I don't think it will be good because it might be another of "those" boring-type mechas :/

in order to try and make this as close to the game as possible, you'll have to hook a car battery to your genitals, CAUSE THE GAME FUCKING HURTS

Oh god AVGN (James Rolfe) will not be thrilled about this.

...............i don't know what to think of this. it sounds so WEIRD. And I've never really watched transformers movies all that much so I don't think I'll be able to follow the anime.

And for the entire series there will be only about 5 compositions and people will have a hard time getting through it, let alone understanding the story.

Does Ultra Magnus still die in one hit?

Will the Decepticons get to be the good guys and the autobots the bad guys? That would totally be bad donkeys and worth watching (I think).

Aug 7, 2014 8:53 AM by TobiOrNotTobi so random.

Usually, I'm up for any Transformers show....but DLE....

They always have ugly animation...well, I guess I'll still watch...

It can't be worse than M.Bay's travesty of movie franchise.

Well this one doesn't have Michael Bay in it, so this will have a chance to be a decent watch.
