It's f**king hilarious.
And second, how do you mean they dubbed Animated to be all dark and such? In spite of the changes they did make to it (two name changes, 3 minutes cut, new OP/ED, Otobotto Family sketches, etc.), it was dubbed faithful and accurate to the English version (or, at least, as faithful as it could be).
Firstly, go read my post and tell me where I mention dub.
Secondly, notice the "appear darker" in my post?
I guess I should have added, that all the kiddy stuff is changed to appeal more to adults, while the dark stuff is changed to appeal to kids.
The intro, the intro the intro! Have you seen the intro?
Also, the toys, the animated toys were geared towards adults, while the Prime toys are geared towards children.
