    I was board today so I decided to translate one of the less-wordy manga issues. This is "Fight! Super Robot Life Transformer #4".


    Some interesting things to note:

    *Prime thinks Magnus is his baby bro.

    *The Autobots were able to drive from one end of the planet to the other in minutes using the Autobot Road (which the Universal Space Bridge from RiD was based on)

    *Megatron can control his mass-shifting when transforming. His big-ass gun mode is called the "Chou Megatron Hou" or "Super Megatron Gun"

    *From now on, I will be using the English names of all the characters and what-not in my translations instead of the Japanese ones, because I really NEVER liked any of the Japanese names.

    Wow. That was stupid.

    Thanks for translating it though, it was... interesting.

    Don't blame me, I didn't write the thing. ;) 

    The manga had the plot depth of one of those old Transformers coloring books, or maybe one of the Big Looker story books (but without the freaky art).

    Still, as a suppliment to the television series, it does have an interesting curiosity value.

    I like how the toys are all in scale, so warpath is a very tiny tank, and megatron is a freaking gigantic gun. That's weird, but fits somehow.

    Or how Prime's trailer is a giant cannon. Figure Cybertron Prime was a reference to that?
