How is that a problem?
some people prefer less explosions more plot.
For what purpose? What do you get out of a plot? You can't see a plot. So why come watch a movie if that's all you want?
It's a matter of enjoying something more on an intellectual level vs. a more visual level. Movies that are are low plot/high effects are primarily meant to be enjoyed as spectacles of the eye. I still believe anyone who expected otherwise of the Transformers films was barking up the wrong tree.
At the same time, some people perfer movies that surprise them with twists and turns in the story or deeper mysteries. These kinds of films usually have action and spectacle take a back seat. Mind you there's nothing wrong with enjoying one over the other, or even both together.
The idea that the Transformers films are bad due to not being focused on plot is just asinine. I perfer many plot heavy films, but sometimes I just wanna see all the pretty lights too.

While I disagree with you on the quality of the films, I'm happy to say you have a very good taste in anime.
Lemme just add I'm glad Bay's ending the series at three films. Film series generally go bad after three films, so a new story will do the franchise good.
