So a couple of sources I’ve read have reported that the new Transformers cartoon is going to be on Cartoon Network because the Hub (Hasbro’s personal TV network) has been rebranded to Discovery Family because the rebranded version now focuses on girls’ and family programming.

It’s 2014 and…

Wow, seriously, they need some new staff and get with the program. Market research people! If you’ve got a certain fanbase watching you show, why don’t you find out WHY it’s popular, and, perhaps, listen to said fanbase before you do something stupid. If the show was cancelled because of lack of viewership or sales, I’d understand. But because of too many girl fans???

Ooo! Are they relaunching RiD or making a remake? I loved Skybyte from that show and it’d be great to see him again either way!

It’s actually a continuation of Transformers Prime, but with a mostly different cast and lighter tone. (This article is has the most recent info.) I don’t know why they decided to reuse an already existing title.

There’s no word on Sky-Byte, but there is apparently a lobster Decepticon named Bisque/Bisk.

Lobster!? *evil chuckle* 

Looks like someone’s going to be put on my menu…er, I mean list…

I really enjoyed this show as a kid, but alot of my friends always made fun of it and didn't like it. I still don't let alot of ppl know I like the show now as a adult because of its reputation as one of the worst rated animes. How do you and other fans deal with liking a show thats mocked by alot of fellow otaku?

Anon I can totally relate to how you feel. I don’t let a lot of my friends know about my involvement in the SDGF fandom, those who do know are cool with it thankfully, but it is something I am kind of ‘in the closet’ about.

When I first saw SDGF I was one of those viewers that didn’t care for it and even made fun of it with friends (of course I was a punky preteen back then) but I still watched it everyday even finishing the first season. I didn’t even get back into it until my first year of college and it was purely by chance. I was just bored in my dorm room one night and looked it up, saw it had a second season, it was on youtube, and watched it. It was purely for nostalgic purposes that it started, but I found the second season to be really good and then made my first piece of fanart for it and discovered the fandom on Deviantart.

While I still enjoy the show and will rematch quite often, its really the fandom that makes SDGF so great. Like the response said we’ve got GREAT writers, amv editors, and artists. Our fandom creates quality fanfiction, quality fanart, and quality videos, and quality ocs thats aren’t just MarySues. The fans have grown and matured and I think its reflected in our work. Because the ending series left a lot of questions, our fandom has been able to create backstories to worlds and characters, and all kinds of things the show never mentioned or covered. While small, the SDGF fandom has truly owned up to its series and made SDGF even better that what originally started as. 

Even if you’re not open with your friends about it doesn’t mean that you still can’t be apart of the fandom. Def. try reaching out to its members, the SDGF is full of some of the sweetest and most supporting people I’ve met online or irl. 

OMG!! Don’t even get me started!! I’ve got this inner fan rage at the lack of love that keeps me going!

Technically, I don’t really talk about any of my fandoms unless the topic comes up, mainly because I feel old and most of the people I know don’t know what anime is much less understand it.

I’ve dealt with “true” franchise haters before with my experience with my #1 favorite show, Beast Wars. I vaguely remember the G1 stuff when I was little but didn’t care for it. It wasn’t until Beast Wars that I interested in the Transformers franchise at all.

It’s an awesome show that many Transformer fans at the time bashed because it was different. I remember going to an anti-Beast Wars convention panel and being the only one who was a Beast wars fan to defend it. And, it was run by two people who obviously didn’t even watch 5 minutes of the first episode because of some of the lame reasons they gave for not liking it.

The Beast Wars community has always been awesome, so yes, fans are some of the best people to keep a show going even if it’s hated by everything else. Things have at least gotten better and Beast Wars does get more respect. Which has calmed the inner rage down a bit for that series for now.

Flash forward to SDGF. For me it’s was the exact same thing. My first experience with the Gundam franchise was Gundam Wing and it just didn’t get me interested. It wasn’t until SDGF that I got interested in Gundam. 

Again, I saw a lot of hate for it because it was different. But what sets that inner rage aflame is not just the lack of love from “true” Gundam fans but the lack of love from the company too! 

I was eagerly waiting for more shows to come out after the end of season 1 but after they kept showing reruns, I thought it was over. But, noooo! It wasn’t until years later that I find out that there WAS a season 2 and practically the whole world got to see it except the US! That is what pissed me off enough to choose to make that Zapper cosplay. And, again, went to a Gundam panel and was the only SDGF fan.

Fortunately the season 2 DVD set came out a few months after that, but the damage was done. No release of the toys that WERE MADE and never release, no acknowledgement of it’s 10th anniversary, no nothing!! Sangokuden helped a little but still! Just so much rage at the lack of love!
