Since learning you were interested in watching armada/ the unicron trilogy all i could think of was "honey, you've got a storm coming,"

im ready

do not watch energon. for the love of all that is good and beautiful in this world do NOT watch energon. i know the strange and perverse kind of temptation that comes from wanting to say you have watched the shittiest of tf media. it wont even seem that bad at first, but it is, and you will be in an actual robot hell that ISNT the fun kind. IT IS SO BAD. not the enjoyable kind of bad. not the interesting kind of bad. JUST BAD. HORRIBLE. AWFUL.

this sure seems like a good reason to watch energon to me

1. i already said i actually really like the animation in beast machines! the problem with bm isnt the animation itself, its character designs, which are by far the worst i have seen in any tf show so far. and i hate to admit it but i do kinda have to agree with you there. when it came to expressions and body language, beast wars did a pretty good job with what it had! (v1) cheetor’s big, curious eyes, silverbolt’s droopy puppy ears, uh…. well, i cant think of another example, but im sure its there. cheetor being so expressive is a lot of why i became so endeared to him in the first place. my sweet pure cat son…. *stares out the open window wistfully*
2. believe me, i believe you. im excited. and a little scared

of all the characters i couldve adopted schmoopy nicknames for it had to be “cat son” and “my beautiful husband jetstorm”

Its always funny to me that you think the CG in Beast Wars and Beast Machines is so bad because it was at least good for its time. The CG in Armada's sequel Energon is bad for it's time and it's especially bad now. The third in the trilogy Cybertron looks much better, but by then the damage is done. Venture beyond Armada at your own risk

look: the cg in beast wars is still bad. i dont care that it was impressive for its time. its bad. but that doesnt mean it didnt grow on me. 52 episodes and a strange fascination with terrible 90s animation will do that to you i guess. beast wars in general has really grown on me and for that i hate myself. animation-wise, beast machines is actually a huge step up from beast wars, and something i might actually be into if every design (apart from jetstorm, my beautiful husband) wasnt the weirdest most uncanny valley thing ive ever seen in my life. theyre both bad. just in different ways. nobody can convince me otherwise.

in conclusion, if theres one thing ive learned from my journey through CGI Ass Hell, it’s that what makes or breaks it isnt the quality of the animation itself, but the quality of the heart character designs. not that that matters right now, since i havent even started watching armada yet. but….. you make it seem like a challenge. can legplane, the lone hero, brave her way through EVERY notoriously terribly-animated cgi transformers cartoon? can she? i bet she can
