    Just translated the 8th issue of the Fight! Super Robot Life Transformer manga, in which the Decepticons experiment on and then gun down a puppy.

    Unfortunately, all emotional impact of said puppy killing is erased thanks to more BURNING HEART MUST SUCCEED dialogue and a ridiculous Minibot gestalt.

    Not bad (though I'd have liked more emotional impact and less "everyone clustered around Powerglide cyclone" too)

    Great job with the translation, it's awesome that you're taking the time to share these rare pieces of TF fiction with us.

    What...the...hell....And it's interesting to note that Powerglide apparently transforms into one of those kiddie rides you see outside K-Mart and Wal-Mart evident by his relative size to the child in the last panel.

    That was not entertaining. Michael Vick would that comic though.

    it wasn't a real puppy. it was a simulation and Minerva was hesitant.

    that comic was just weird

    That dog took over Powerglide's controls and made him his bitch.

    It's got a double meaning, get it?

    Also, the minibots' combined form is basically stapling all of them together in vehicle mode.

    The Japanese CT's still suck, the manga is just ten times worse.

    what? you kidding?

    it was a real dog which belonged to the little girl who got angry with the decepticons for killing her dog Peace (i think the name of the dog and its fate was supposed to be symbolic). this was ruined when Minerva said she would buy the girl a new dog which made the girl happy (seconds after her dog was killed).

    Makes the "Kiss Play" stuff seem tame by comparison, huh?
