    In the first 6 episodes I counted Miko as one of your average "terrible humans" that tend to be in almost every Transformers series. However in the last 4 she seems to be growing on me.

    I would say this is the writers trying to repair her annoying debut due to poor reception but:
    A. I don't know how unpopular she actually was vs. how vocal her opposition was
    B. As far as i know all of the episodes had already been planned and possibly even animated/voice acted long in advance.

    It is strange watching a TF series and not hating at least one of the humans. In fact i can't name one I haven't disliked since G1 (ape people in Beast Wars were ok I guess lmao.).

    Oh and Breakdown and Knockout are awesome!

    The only problem I have with Miko these days is the actress who plays her is obviously latino and can't hide it consistently. I dunno why they didn't just write her as latino in the first place. As far as the character goes she has grown on me a lot since Darkness Rising.

    I've always liked Miko - but I would agree she's improving as the episodes go along.

    Out of the three of them, Miko's my favorite of the kids. Probably helps that she reminds me of someone I knew growing up, lol. Like Bulkhead, she's gotten a decent amount of screen time in recent episodes. Raf I'm sort of neutral on, but we really haven't seen as much of him. Only one of the three I would describe as annoying, would be Jack. I'm hoping future episodes change that though.

    I never hated her, though she wasn't a great character, she's getting a lot more likable. She's very animated.

    don't like her at all. I recently tuned into one of the newer episodes after having watched only the five parter and near the end of the episode we see her playing the electric guitar with all the other humans and some of the 'bots dancing to it.

    Didn't think highly of they show after seeing the 5 parter anyway, but I decided then and there not to watch the show again anytime soon.

    Actually she is Indonesian. Her name is Tania Gunadi.
    Tania Gunadi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Tania Gunadi - IMDb

    I only know this because after Episode 1 I was like "Wtf are they trying to pull? They may as well have cast Carla from Scrubs to voice this girl!" And looked her up.

    There is still the possibility that she grew up in a Latin neighborhood I guess lol.

    It's something about her pronunciation of T's the just screams latino to me for some reason. It's like they're too soft or something. I can't explain it well.

    I do have to wonder how she managed to get to study abroad if she is a delinquent. She may have the brains but discipline is the problem.

    Her accent and mannerisms both sound Latina to me too. I literally only looked it up so i could have one more reason not to like the character because it was "so obvious" she was Latina and thus a poor choice of voice actress for a Japanese character.
    Even after seeing the girl with my own eyes (well pics of her anyway) I still can't imagine that voice being associated with her....but it wouldn't be the first time i was wrong lol.

    Money can have a lot to do with opportunities granted. And she is obviously spoiled rotten. Sadly the fact that i can tell/assume this without it being explained is only more testament to why the character is growing on me so quickly lol.

    I never had anything against her. She's cool, she adds a different dynamic to the team. The three kids have diverse personalities and each brings something to the group. Miko's just getting more character development right now, next time, it's Jack's turn.

    Actually, I took the occasional accent slips to be stress / sympathy related. Look at the latest episode where the accent slips, she's trying to win over the security guard with her story, so she's playing up the "I'm a foreign exchange student" card. In Convoy, she thought she was about to die, and only reined it in to put a brave face on it for Raf.

    May not be the actual explanation, but I personally feel it fits the scenes so far. It might be a gaf, but with the production values so far, I'm surprised that two separate occasions got through.

    I wouldn't say I hate her or any of the humans, but the kids are definitely the weak link in the show so far, to me. And she's the most annoying of the three.
