    Manga-mized Animated begins! Animated Optimus has never looked so...intimidating.

    The anime-style movie Prime in the background is rather nice.

    Bulkhead just got the shit scared out of him by Prowl.

    Aside from the more realistic-interpretation of the designs, (which is the wrong way to go with such cartoony designs) at least it looks like what it is based off, which is more than I can say for Metals.

    As for the title. Well, damn, they just tell it like it is, don't they? :)

    So this is an actual comic (magna) set in the Animated Universe? I really like how it looks, it still has the cartoony look but also looks a bit more realistic

    So, a question to people who buy Manga... Will this be translated into English and available in the states? Is it TokyoPop or whatever?

    The art style adapts well into Manga (which I usually think is lame and cliche)

    Transformers - Animated - The - Cool. LOL I love Engrish. ;)

    I'm intrigued! I hope we have someone here who'd be able to provide translations.

    I'm also curious if they will keep the non-cartoon continuity (ie: Arrival series and Almanacs) in mind, or if they're planning to make entirely new continuity to fall in line with the movieverse theme they've been giving? Either way, I hope to see them make at least one new character. :) 

    US got us Oil Slick, UK gave us Afterburn... What will YOU give us, Japan?

    More than ever Prowl looks like he is ready to do the impossible, see the invisible, and possibly even fight the power.

    Seriously, somebody photoshop some blue hair onto him.

    Not the exact kinda comic i was hoping for, but still cool. We can probably relinquish our hopes of it being in-continuity, but as long as it focuses on the humour and awesomeness that makes the series what it is, i'm in.

    I think I can officially say that the manga is one of the first things I've liked about the Japanese effort of Animated.

    See above statement. I'm sorry, I just can't agree with you here, if you're speaking about either this manga, the toyline, or the imported series.

    MAGMA ANIMATED! Plus that is one of the stupidest titles ever! Maybe not for Japan, they love those weird-ass names :D

    Naoto Tsushima has done some of the better Transformers mangas on record ("The Stargate Battles" is wicked cool, and the Henkei series is highly enjoyable nonsense), so I think this could be decent.

    Looks pretty neat, but they all look rather angry, except Bee and Bulky. XD

    Great to hear! Chris, do you know or can you give your best guess as to wether or not they will do a translated English release for these, based on the past? And if they'll be available to buy in the US or UK?

    Kind of like what I'm seeing here, art wise... It's good translation - some of the most appealing Manga I've ever seen. :)
