I recently aquired and watched TF Headmasters, as I heard it was one of the better Japanese TF series. Ok some people are going to hate me, some are going to think I'm insane, but Headmasters and all the Japanese cartoons after it prevented the Transformers from having a stronger run. As much as I dislike Season 3, The Rebirth was a good reboot, and the Team Up of Galvatron and Zarak could have spawned very good episodes in Season 4. Plus, Fortress Maximus kicked ass. On the other hand, the crap that they call Headmasters (the Japanese version) is garbage. Corny dialogue (maybe a hell of alot is lost in translation), all too obvious rivalries, the utterly ridiculous apperance of Fortress and his horrible backstory(Especially disgusting is the scene with Kup getting cuddly with him), the immediate rekilling of Prime... It's all so bad. The Blaster Soundwave fight is cool, Galvatron's demise is cool, other than that... trash. A D rate cartoon. Every Transformers series from Japan following has been trash (although it spawned some great bot designs characters and toys, Super Megatron is full of win). And the gimmicks got too out of hand. Headmasters, Target Masters, even Powermasters, ok. But breastmasters, brainmasters, godmasters, micromasters AUUUGGGH!!! Headmasters, MAsterforce, Kiss Players, Zone, Energon, Cybertron.... It seems to me they cannot make a good Transformers series. Bring it back to the west (TF Animated) and it's good again. Not that I don't like Japanese cartoons, I am a Robotech, Ronin Warriors, Baki The Grappler, Trigun loving fool. It just seems they cannot capture the spirit and essence of Transformers and build a cohesive series. I pray Hasbro never allows another eastern produced TF series. /rant off What do you think?
