When? Which line of mine insulted you?
KUMA-NIN Maximus wrote:You disregarded Toei's history when it comes to western companies. And this includes non-Transformers related companies like FUNimation.
What does Toei's history have to do with this?
KUMA-NIN Maximus wrote:You disregarded the fact that continuity is based on changes that have a long-standing effect on how the story is handled.
Even though Pioneer didn't change the story with their release?
KUMA-NIN Maximus wrote:You disregarded the fact I am having issues with my laptop
Your laptop issues are your own. What relevance do they have to the Transformers topic?

From what you told me, it sounded like you were saying that Pioneer redid the cartoon with their releases. If you were not saying that they redid the series, then I was mistaken.
Though, there ARE some things I WAS WRONG about. I though that Takara had released the clip shows on their LDs, when it looks like they didn't. I also thought Takara hadn't released the five missing episodes on their LDs, when it seems that they did as well. My mistake on these two accounts.
KUMA-NIN Maximus wrote:Sunbow's chronology is based on 98 episodes.
KUMA-NIN Maximus wrote:Takara's chronology, before Headmasters, is based on 102-106 episodes and does not follow the same order as Sunbow's.
Yes, though, Takara's LDs didn't have the clip shows.
KUMA-NIN Maximus wrote:Pioneer's chronology is based on Sunbow's, but replaced the two missing episodes with the TV special and OVA.
Pioneer maintained the Japanese episode order that Takara did. Both have the episodes ordered as their were originally broadcasted in Japan.
Though, Takara also included both Scramble City and "Exciting Transformer" in their releases, according to this page - http://tfwiki.net/wiki/TakaraTomy#Home_video
KUMA-NIN Maximus wrote:Your claims dictate differently, which would have them put out a total of 100 episodes among the three sets.
Having checked over things, I see now that Pioneer did sets of episodes 1-35, 36-63 + the 2 missing episodes, and 1-30 of 2010 + The Rebirth. 63 + 2 + 30 + 3 = 98.
And that Takara did sets of 1-35, 36-63 + the 2 missing episodes, and 1-30 of 2010. 35 + 28 + 2 + 30 = 95. Same count as Pioneer minus The Rebirth.
KUMA-NIN Maximus wrote:So when it comes to the Amazon Japan description of Pioneer's set, I also used two apps I downloaded... As well as Excite, Livedoor, Bing, Nifty, Babylon and Dictionary.com in hopes to find anything that is a repeating factor.
Namely... "Transformers "version of the United States", which aired in Japan TV series finally appeared!"
I'm looking into what this description is trying to say, and by breaking apart the individual phrases to make the message more coherent, it looks as though, by "U.S. version", they mean the cartoon itself originating from the U.S., with it being an American cartoon dubbed into Japanese The episodes themselves are unaltered from their original Japanese dubs in 1986. If they were, this would have been made well known all over with the main Transformers websites spelling it out.
Basically, the Amazon Japan is stating this:"The American Transformers cartoon aired by Nippon Television is finally here. Included with all 30 TV episodes are three unaired episodes. Limited edition DVD-BOX."
That is a translation that both makes sense in English and sticks true to the message of the Japanese language description, whereas Google Translate felt more (pardon the pun) robotic in its translation.

That's what I'm trying to do here. I'm trying to help you see that Pioneer's episodes are just like Takara's episodes, same audio track and episode order and all.

I'm not trying to dismiss you. That's why I asked for where you were coming from this. But I aside from the Amazon Japan description, I don't know where one would come to think that Pioneer's episodes are different from Takara's when there hasn't been such an announcement made yet. Something like that is big news and worthy of being incorporated into the TFWiki, yet there's no mention of a second dub or episode reordering anywhere on that site.
KUMA-NIN Maximus wrote:So yeah... I will not block you because I know I will be missing out on a few fun times with you.
And I you. You're a smart guy with some interesting ideas.

Consider quitting a second time just to spare me from having any anxiety that will result in me quitting... Or just hope that you will realize that you are dismissing a HUGE chunk of who I am because you have this "reputation" of being right.
I just wrote above that I was WRONG about some things. I have openly spelled out in the past that I am not perfect and am just as prone to error as anyone. I am human, I make mistakes and failures just the same as anyone.
KUMA-NIN Maximus wrote:Hence why I am asking to stop, as I am doing just that, and dwell on how you are being perceived whenever you respond this way. (And this is a guy who, being diagnosed with Aspergers, is recommending... And does.)
You and I are more alike than you realize. I have Aspergers Syndrome as well.

I have never once tried to insult you. If something was taken the wrong way, then I apologize. But I don't see you as an inferior.

The end here, and thank you for another "fun" time on these kind of topics.
I showed you where you could do that. Go to Allspark.com and talk with him. He's there. You can speak to him there.
