    I know we are all Transformers fans here, so we might be slightly biased....

    But if you were to strip away all the cool toys, and just watch it purely based on entertainment.

    How well does Animated do against Bleach, Naruto, or any of the other major Japanese anime?

    I personally haven't watched a lot of TF Animated yet, but the first four episodes didn't exactly set me on fire to see the rest....

    Bleach and Naruto are awful blights upon the face of television with a less coherent plot than Transformers Animated. I mean, at least "Transformers Animated" makes sense. It's a show about the transformers, and it's animated. Bleach? I see no clorox in that show!

    This may quite possibly win the entire Internet.

    Would you stop saying that? You act like saying you hate something I like is somehow an insult. I'm not the only guy who likes Animated, y'know. Apololgize to someone else, like Kickback.

    The way you keep saying it makes me feel bad, like I'm denying you forgiveness and am somehow a bad person for that, but you didn't do anything!

    Bleach is all style with very little emphasis on story. I mean it has one, but it doesn't know what it's doing half the time. Fun character designs, though.

    Naruto is sort of like the Japanese Harry Potter. Well, the manga is. The cartoon is just awful.

    One Piece is better than both of them. Again, the manga. Don't watch the cartoon.

    Animated is written in an entirely differently way, I wouldn't bother to compare them.

    Well compared to Naruto, TF:A wins because it doesn't spend half of every episode recapping the previous one nor has every single character having to explain every attack or ability they do in a 5 minute speech.

    Tho if comparing to other major Japanese anime's, even tho I love TF:A I'd say Code Geass beats it, and entertainment wise, Excel Saga wins too.

    Why are we comparing TF:A to Animes anyway?

    Next we'll run around asking if Street Fighter is better than Tetris.

    TF:A stands well above those two shows.
    In comparison to Balck Lagoon however, then you have something.

    Nowadays most animes suck. Naruto is just plain awful, all style, no good plot, but it somehow has tons of followers. Bleach is okay, I hear it's all flash, but it's better than Narutard. Code Geass has a great story and is one of the most intelligent shows I've ever watched. Evangelion is all about the mental shit but is really hard to understand. TFA has a pretty good plot for a kids show, way better than the Unicron Trilogy and Naruto, on level with Bleach, but not as good as Code Geass or Evangelion

    Here is a plot of a real Naruto Episode:

    Naruto finds his teacher in a whorehouse writing pornography. While going downstairs to 'mail' the porn, he bumps into a POST OFFICE NINJA (yes, a post office ninja) and mixes up the porn with some official documents. The rest of the episode is Naruto using his ninja cunning to keep the porn from falling into the hands of the king who may be offended. At the end, nothing stops the postal ninja, so naruto feels like it is a good idea to transform into 100 naked ladies to hug and kiss the mail man into submission. He fails, the porn gets delivered, the king likes porn and all is well.

    That is for realz.

    Now shows like this make animated look like shakespeare in comparison.

    Most anime sucks. Most western shows suck. The anime that's adapted for the west sucks worse.

    Code Geass is just full of idiotic, angsty mary sue characters, only distinguished BY their brand OF angst. I mean, the power to make people do whatever you want? That sounds a lot to me like the writers got lazy. And what kind of name is "Laloosh" anyway? They're ruled by the British, they're Japanese, and yet he has some wackadoo fake French name?

    Really, the last good anime I saw was Paranoia Agent, followed by FLCL and Bio Boosted Armor Guyver.

    Whatever you call it, Code Geass is one of the better shows right now. Lelouch's strategies through Geass is one of the smartest aspects in an anime that I've seen. BTW Lelouch is Britannian, and a show can make names up

    I say FLCL is one of the most pointless shows I've seen, it just doesn't make any sense

    Pete, Paranoia Agent really? I like Satoshi Kon and all but paranoia agent got weird just for the sake of weird at the end.

    Evaunit:Some things are supposed to be nonsensical, Excel Saga would have never have worked otherwise. As for the lelouch's strategies bit you really need to see Death Note.

    Back on topic, they don't really compare at least not until TFA gets 2 seasons of filler (i kid). Shonen action shows like those aren't really meant to have the depth of characterization or even plot most shows have, i would almost compare it to Cowboy Bebop considering the individualistic nature the episodes of both series seem to have.
