I've made this same comparison before, but the way Bandai/Sunrise treated Gundam X really does reminds me of how HasTak seems to ignore Animated nowadays. In fact, both shows are sort of being left in obscurity by their mother companies (Bandai/Sunrise and Hasbro/Takara Tomy), and barely get any love when it comes to merchandising. This is gonna sounds nonsensical, but both Gundam X and TF: Animated do have quite a bit of similarity going on: Both shows have their main plot which takes place in a post-war era after a major war was over, with hints about the scale of the war in the present time. Both shows also have their main characters started out as inexperienced newcomers, who slowly grows into a bigger role into a hero over the course of the runtime of their respective show; Like how Animated has Optimus slowly grows into a more capable, worthy candidate of the Autobot rank Magnus, or how Gundam X slowly has its main character, Garrod Ran get to find the titular Gundam and grows to be aware of the true responsibility of being a capable Gundam pilot. Both After War Gundam X and Transformers: Animated were infamously plagued with production problems in its initial run, resulting in the number of episodes or seasons having to be cut short prematurely. Both shows also have antagonists that want to fan the flames of war once more, with the various morally grey decision being made by both sides throughout the show. Both shows also have an older mentor figure (Ultra Magnus and Jamil Neate) as side character occasionally checking out on our current MCs, who are veterans fought in the war that shows their ages in current time, but still capable in their own way. Both shows also feature a young female character (Sari Sumdac from TF: Animated, and Tiffa Adill from Gundam X) that may look outwardly normal at first, but eventually revealed to have superpowers and gets to play a bigger, spoiler-worthy role in the story; with the powers being an objective that both sides want to chase for? Not only that, but both shows also starred an old, veteran medic as one of their main cast (Dr. Techs Farzenberg in Gundam X, and ratchet in Transformers: Animated) that was also a veteran of the last war, as a doctor rather than a combatant; and remembers its horrors well. Both shows are pretty well-received among the very few who had actually watched them, but yet barely any new fans show interest or even acknowledged that they existed nowadays.
