The Japanese dubbing turned the originally solemn and serious series into a more jovial children's cartoon show. Some of the characters were given funny-sounding voices and a lot of comical chatter was added to the dialog. A few characters were re-imagined completely - for example, Airachnid turned from a vengeance-fueled sadist into an over-the-top love-obsessed stalker of teenage boys. The moody orchestral theme-tune was also replaced with an upbeat pop song. Further, season 3 in its entirety was ignored by the Japanese dub, and the big cliffhanger from the second season finale was also removed. Instead, an entirely new mini-series titled Transformers: Go! was created to replace season 3. The reason for all these changes is that in Japan, the Transformers franchise is regarded strictly as children's property, and the serious tone of the cartoon's original American version clashed greatly with this perception.

Firstly I grew up with the Transformers series (namely Armada, Cydertron, BeastMachines (I didn't manage to see Beast Wars),a little of the G1 series and Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2001)) and the movies more or less broke my heart .Granted when I was 14, I though that were good, but when did a teenage had a fully formed sense of taste and as a adult,I think of then a a disgrace to the Mythology of the Robots in Disguise!
And then I hit by accident more or less this series and I am "for real?" ,then I watch it and my next take was "Why didn't the films have the quality of this series?". The series had great animation, nice voice cast (Megatron and Optimus amazing) ,the story arc of each character either Cybertronian or Human is handle in a pretty mature way of a kids television series. I am not making fun of you guys (ok , maybe there are girls also, but lets be real 90% of everyone reading this review is surely a male) at times you forget that this is series about robots battling out, which by the way is fantastic when it happens. I have to admit this one is if not the best Transformers series ,then it is easily in the top 3.
This quality at the same time fills me with joy and anger for years before, the feature films could be so good, they had bigger budget and the best technology at the time, but no Micheal Bay and Paramount made them in to the abomination they are today :(. Despite I manage to remind myself that it isn't the technology, the budget or the names in the project that made it great , it is something smaller and yet so significant attention the the characters, a good story and understanding what you can do with both of that.
Over all if you also feel betrayed from the movies or you have kids or both then watch with them these Transformer, 100% certain that you will enjoy it.
