Here I state facts about shows and franchises that sometimes get a bad rap.
On the agenda today: Transformers
Wow do a lot of anime fans hate that this franchise is considered anime, and that is kind of bizarre, this is in terms of sales, series, movies, toys, longevity, popularity, success, and many other factors that sadly make this impossible to argue.... Transformers is as far as overall success goes the most popular anime franchise ever made! Sorry do not get mad at me, get mad at the world as the global community has given this Takara/Hasbro juggernaut the keys to the hearts and minds of it's childten.
Truth be told only the most pretentious of gaijin question Transformers as an anime franchise, in Japan there is certainly no question, and a sense of pride that this series originated in the borders of the land of the rising sun, but yet few are willing to accept what is basically a fact, when it comes to anime success, all must bow to the Bots and the Cons!
