I personally didn't like it, so im Very Happy, the new movie is the way to go.
Very upset, I am.
This image accurately depicts how I feel about Animated coming to a close.
Before Transwarpped, I didn't care that much. Season 3 changed my mind an I'm upset. Super upset.
I'm disappointed and saddened. It's been a decent to mediocre show until season 3. Season 3 just popped and it was a huge win with great episodes. Personally I didn't like it at first. The first episode turned me off and I was done. Listening to the podcast though, made me take a second look. I believe in giving things a fair shot and a second chance if need be. I looked at some episodes and liked it. The G1 references were nice. I liked seeing new versions of the original characters, movie excluded. It's a shame it's all ending but I think the finale will be huge and everyone will come off feeling fulfilled oddly.
upset enough said
im very..very..very sad about animated ending
Honey-Flash is sad, very very sad. Honey starts talking like Waspinator when she is upset.
(In real-life, I do actually refer to myself in third-person in my head when I'm mad or upset, however I use my real name, not my screen name.)
Definitely sad to see a great series go. How anyone could ignore the effort put into its fruition is way beyond me. I'd take another Animated series over the AEC toy commercials.
Wow only 1 respond for very happy, and we know who that was...
Well, at first I was in denial. The rumors are just that. Watch, we'll hear about S4 in just a little while. This is just a misunderstanding, Animated is going to break for the summer and return in the Fall. Maybe it's just getting a hiatus until the 2nd movie is over so they don't get into a situation like last year with stores demanding more ROTF when Hasbro and CN wants to put Animated on the shelves and TV.
Then I was furious. How dare Hasblow create such a great series and toyline, only to mistreat it so badly?!? Why are mass consumers so stupid as to actually like the Movie crap in the first place?!? How can the first series that's actually watchable, enjoyable, accessable with a toyline that's of such high quality be the one series seeing a premature death? How dare they make a move to yank the toys from the shelves?!? Never had a series gotten so few episodes! What is the matter with these people? This is the worst handled line in TF history!!!
Then I wanted to make a deal with them. I started buying up Animated figures to show my support for the line, figuring that maybe others would too and sales would pick up, making them rethink their position. (I also figured that of all the recent lines, this would be the one commanding high prices years later and was relatively easy to get most of the figures.) I made sure to watch some of the recent episodes again on CN's own viewer so that I'd count as a viewer statistic to them. Why not let the series continue in comic book form? Firefly, Angel, and so many others had!
Then I was all depressed about it. The movie does bring in more money to Hasbro, and most people (tasteless as they must be) seem to really like it. The line was abysmally handled, is it that surprising? Plus between Hasbro and CN's fingers in the stew, it probably was hard at times. And all those impressionable kids who were really loving this series and now it's gone, I feel for them; at least G1 for me had so many episodes, they barely got any.
Now, I've come to realize that all good things must come to an end. Animated has given us one amazing series and the best toyline arguably ever. Unless Endgame does something spectacularly bad in my opinion, Animated will be my favorite series and toyline of all time. The toys are filled with character and are genuinely fun to play with, not to mention fantastic representations and all around spectacular Transformers with an accompanying fiction that was a joy to watch.
All the same, I voted very upset. I had taken solace in riding out the movie frenzy (heh) with Animated, and seeing future episodes genuinely excited me on Saturday mornings. Now that the likelyhood is moot, I'll get a "toy vacation" by going nearly entirely Transformerless for very likely the rest of the year. In addition, much like a new show on Fox, I'll be very hesitant to give any new series a try, as who's to say that history won't repeat itself and that new series will get a premature axe all the same?
EDIT: Just to be clear, this post is meant to be humorous; a play on the Kübler-Ross model of psychological interaction on dealing with tragedy, more commonly known as the 5 stages of grief.
On one hand I think it sucks that it's ending, because it's such a good series. On the other hand, a series this good must have a fantastic finale. While I wish it wasn't ending, I'm still looking forward to seeing the finale.
lol, sorry, i just didnt like it very much, thats not a bad thing
Wow dude, pretty emotional there, but hell, least people care....
ya know, i havent ever seen fans for anything else like see fans here on tfw2005.com, give yourself a friggen pat on the back, you deserve it, really...
I'm upset that it's ending, but at the same time I'll get over it soon. At the very least we can look forward to the rest of the toy line this year. Then we can move on to whatever Hasbro has in the works for us next, and then most likely a third movie. We'll also have more Universe to look forward to next year, so that's a plus (not saying it's guaranteed, just that I can't see Universe not continuing).
Upset but quite frankly, if something never ends we never get to see what they'll come up with next.
I would be the opposite.
I suppose it may not have been clear, but it was supposed to be a bit tongue in cheek, with going through the 5 stages of grief.
