And make absolutely perfect sense
At least he knew when to leave, unlike some Other Characters(looking at you Wheelie)
Well if they allowed me to tweek the script a bit, Grimlock would in fact, satiate his appetite to munch metal.
Legit, I forgot Grimlock was even in Headmasters. Now I remember seeing Springer in the background too.
the best part is Omni called Shouki Grimlock, because that makes sense.
Try not to apply rational thought to Omni production's actions, your sanity will only be worse for wear.
I will board Space Bruce, and make Fortress Maximus come himself.
The problem with that iteration of Shin Getter Robo was they changed directors after the first few episodes, and Yasuhiro Imagawa, the first and arguably better director, deliberately sabotaged the story before leaving.
That same issue makes it difficult to say that "the same people" should make a Transformers anime, even if you loved the series (which I did). Which same people, exactly?
Any way we could redo the poll? Two out of five options aren't anime studios.
I will say it again, though I am pretty sure I am one of the three people who do want/wish that would happen:
If TT/Haz whoever is responsible for this, would give 2 rat shits together about TF lore (which they dont), they would open the old G1 scripts edit them to fix out the continuation problems, add correct origin episodes to certain groups/characters, add explanation episodes and tie in episodes with the existing ones and remaster the entirety of G1 and hand the script to a studio to do animation and voice acting (And keep Welker and Cullen defacto). And even go after S4.
THAT would have been the perfect campaign to advertise the Mp series and a dream come true.
But it wont happen, nobody has the balls for it.
Redoing all of G1 with proper animation, scripts and much less of a focus on selling toys could beat neat. personally I would love to see Zone get animated, its one episode was neat and I think it could have be a really decent show.
It's pretty arrogant to assume the only way to show that they care about "lore" is to redo G1.
Why not just make an all-new series at that point? MPs sell themselves in Japan and a new cartoon isn't going to help them move any faster stateside. What you're proposing is an exercise in excess. There's no need for an advertising vehicle for a line that only exists because it doesn't need one to sell.
I am currious: Where the hell did you read the bold part?
This list is sorely missing Studio Trigger. A TF series by Imaishi would be pretty amazing. It'd be more kid-friendly than anything he's directed so far (even though TTGL was technically a shonen series), of course, but I'm sure that he could still give the fight scenes his trademark over-the-top insanity.
Because, come on. A hand-drawn TF series with fight scenes like Gurren Lagann would be brilliant, provided that the writing is good. Maybe get Marty Isenberg, Bob Forward, Larry DiTillio or Mairghread Scott involved. I mean, ideally James Roberts, Nick Roche and James Roberts would be on the table, but they don't work animation AFAIK. Or, you know, just let TTGL's writers deal with it. Just because Japan hasn't made any well-written TF shows so far doesn't mean they can't do it.
Frankly most of animes produced thus far have been poorly written because of TakaraTomy's view of transformers as a kids property and as such suffer for that reason, outsourcing writing to a western talent wouldn't change much as past examples have shown that somewhere down the road the staff will screw it up even if they had assistance in scripting.
While I cant say I blame them, that G1 Japanese end credits song for the first two seasons...I felt like watching Candy Candy all over again.
Now I'm imagining mtmte/ Lost Light as an anime
Uh, I have bad news for you: Transformers IS a kids property. Always has been. Always will be. The only difference between the US/UK and Japan is the age of the kids targeted.
...would be completely pointless for them.
Less, not none at all. pretty much all the later shows were far less offensive advertising wise.
