Unless we're talking about the guy from Hunger Games, President Snow. He has feet.

Snow doesn't have feet. It's just piles of frozen water.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:29 PM)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:28 PM)

What I got out of that was that Canada really wants to have a plague of locusts unleashed upon them.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

y'see, under canadian law all broadcasting corporations operate under a mandate that at least 40% of the content they broadcast must be Canadian content. Naturally, this applies to kid's cartoon channels as well, which is a fairly niche market these days. So animators slap together very cheaply animated flash cartoons and air them in the daytime hours to fill the quota. Hence endless reruns of Johnny Test, Almost Naked Animals, etc.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

Chaos is bad for business, y'see.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:17 PM)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:13 PM)

Well, I didn't wanna have to do this, but it looks like we have to nuke Canada.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:12 PM)

Johnny Test isn't even the worst of it? Mother of God...

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:04 PM)

But in Canada, Johnny Test is just one of many terrible flash cartoons. It's not even the worst one.

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 08:49 PM)

Pft. Cartoon Network aired Johnny Test TEN times a day for a loooooong time.

@  The Doctor Who : (21 May 2016 - 08:01 PM)

Mayhem Hangouts is Go! I repeat the loonies are converging on Google! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 07:52 PM)

My condolences. It's always sad to hear of the death of a loved one...or someone's sanity.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 07:44 PM)

Back in the days when I watched TFP on TV, they sometimes aired it six or seven times a day.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 07:44 PM)

You don't know the pain of Johnny Test until you live in Canada.

@  tffan01 : (21 May 2016 - 07:36 PM)

Anyone watched the piece of shit called the Supernoobs on Cartoon Network? It somehow managed to be worse than Johnny Test or Uncle Grandpa. It's jokes are cliche, the show is boring with stereotypical characters.

@  Confuzor : (21 May 2016 - 06:59 PM)

No euphemism. Just old farts doing stuff they shouldn't.

@  Paladin : (21 May 2016 - 06:54 PM)

unless "bounce house" is a euphemism for somethign else....

@  Confuzor : (21 May 2016 - 06:14 PM)

30 year old bodies were not meant for Bounce Houses. Oof.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2016 - 04:31 PM)

Shouldn't Sideshow be a different article?

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 04:19 PM)

That's just my opinion, if you want a better viewpoint, go ask in the TFWiki thread.

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 04:18 PM)

Yeah, you could probably go a bit more in depth about Sideshow Collectibles.

You mean like Yoshi from Digimon Savers/Data Squad?


Never saw it, I stopped at Frontier and skipped to Xros.

I have a question that I don't think I've ever seen confirmed any place.

Do the Japanese DVDs for Animated restore the cut segments, as there's no problems with length on a DVD? (Basically, did they cut the episodes before or after they dubbed them?)

I know that the DVDs included the three skipped episodes (though they didn't restore the proper series episode order). Knowing whether or not the Animated DVDs were uncut might be a clue as to whether the inevitable Prime DVDs will be unedited in Japan or not.

Disappointing compared to the awesomeness that was Animated's Japanese intro.
Not that I was expecting burning justice and mysterious cloaked figures, but I feel like there's a dissonance between the audio and the imagery.
Appropriate for a dub, I guess.

You noticed that too, huh? I thought when I first listened to that song, that it was a very odd match for Transformers Prime, and seeing the entire opening, merely re-enforced my opinion. There are some sweet visuals, and I do like the driving and transforming clip going into the show's title. The fact remains that the music just doesn't mesh. At the moment, I can't tell you if it's merely a case of audio-visual dissonance, or if the song just simply doesn't suit the show at all. I'll watch the opening, full-sized, and think it over for a couple of days.

Picked up volume 1 and there was no difference from the broadcast versions as far as i could tell.

Also a heads up to all those looking for a stream, my souces hooked me up again so its on youtube now

I thought it was a joke when i heard the intro tune online a couple of weeks ago. Animated had much better tunes for its japanese run. It feels like they took the Epic away from primes intro just to make it hip for the kids.

I just.... *sigh*
The kids voices are pretty damn close to the American version. Starscream's voice is odd but at least unique.
Everyone else has the same, boring voices you hear in every other anime out there. For crying out loud, Ratchet and Arcee have had the personality ripped out of them.
This is why the anime industry is in a delcine. It's stagnating. Nothing changes, they make everything similar to the last thing and it's freakin' boring.

I'm gonna go watch some of our episodes and be EXTREMELY grateful for our animation industry trying new things.

You have to consider though that no matter what kind of song they'd have gotten for Prime's opening, it's really damn hard to beat out a JAM Project song for awesomeness.
