Fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade has found the summaries to the three new chapters in the Legends Manga series by Sakumoto. Below are the summaries to the comics that came with the Decepticon Clones, Windblade and G2 Megatron. It is best to read them while looking at the comics we recently posted to get a full sense of what is going on.

We even get to know who makes up the villain group the Concurrence, which includes Doctor Arkeville, Lord Chumley, Shawn Berger Jr., Count von Rani (Iron Klaw from G.I. Joe: Extreme), General Kreiger (General Blitz/Garrison Kreiger), and most recently Michelle (from "Only Human"), the King of Daros (from the Japanese Headmasters episode "Find MegaZarak's Weak Spot!!"), and Old Snake.

Transformers News: English Summaries to Takara Legends Manga for Decepticon Clones, Windblade and G2 Megatron

Enjoy!

Clonetron Set:
In 2011 of the G1 World, Pounce and Wingspan are offered high positions in the Decepticon army by Galvatron in exchange for betraying their friends, Fastlane and Cloudraker, and stealing a treasure map left behind by the Space Pirates. While they succeed, the map does not lead to the stockpile of proton energy they had expected, and the two Clones remain low-ranked Decepticons even as Galvatron and Scorponok are defeated. Ten years later they return to the Pirate Planet, believing there's more to the pirates' pyramid than they saw during their first visit, and find a hidden basement containing an interdimensional portal. They theorize that the reason the proton energy is nowhere to be found is because the space pirate Duncan never hid it in the pyramid in the first place, but transported it to another world.

In the Legends World, Highbrow is researching the mysteries regarding the energy that created the dimension when he's interrupted by Cloudraker reacting to something. Cloudraker explains that he's connected to Pounce as they were created in the same cloning experiment, and he can sense that his "brother" has arrived in this dimension. Aware that the Decepticon Clones have searching for the pirates' energy lately, the Autobots realize the Zamojin must have been working with the Space Pirates to gather energy and use it to create the Legends World, and if so, the world is doomed if the Decepticons take away the energy. They roll out only to find that Pounce and Wingspan have defeated Metroplex using the mutant Autobot Targetmasters, which have absorbed the proton energy hidden underground to become extremely powerful. Declaring that they're sick of being ruled over and treated as lab rats and that it's their time to rule, the Decepticon Clones attack Fastlane and Cloudraker, who plead with them to return the energy to the Legends World. Fortunately the Autobot Clones manage to grab the Targetmasters, which then fly off in different directions to avoid being used for evil again. Pounce and Wingspan retreat, telling their brothers to remember this day, and Fastlane and Cloudraker respond that they'll gladly remember it until the day comes when they can reconcile.


Targetmaster Windblade:
Neo Akihabara City is attacked by the berserk mutant Targetmasters Pinpointer, Spoilsport and Peacemaker, and Windblade, determined to protect the world that forgave her for her past actions, comes to the city's defense only to be shot down. With the city in flames and even Broadside defeated, a despairing Windblade wishes that her big sister Nijika was there to help, then realizes that Nijika is in fact present in the Legends World. She makes her way to where Katsu Don is rebuilding Nijika and requests that her creator convert her into a Headmaster compatible with her sister's body, conceding that she's even willing to become a Zamojin puppet again in exchange for Nijika's power.

Katsu Don accepts her deal, and Headmaster Windblade and Nijika soon depart to save the city from the mutant Targetmasters. With her new robot mode, Windblade is able to deflect the Targetmasters' blasts and seize Pinpointer, forcibly combining him with her sword and using the weapon to send Spoilsport and Peacemaker flying off to parts unknown. The city is saved, but it's a bittersweet victory: when Tigatron returns home, he finds a good-bye note from Windblade explaining that she has returned to the Zamojin and asking the residents of the Legends World to destroy her if she ever attacks them again.


G2 Megatron comic summary:
With G1 Megatron having left Tera-Kura Co. to become mayor, president Beast Megatron is once again in charge... until the company is suddenly invaded by Concurrence troops led by Old Snake, who needs resources to recover from the setback of being discovered by the Galactic Peace Alliance. Snake proceeds to place Megatron in a tube and extract his "beast portion", transforming him into a wholly robotic Headmaster loyal to the Concurrence. Seeing their plot for world conquest as a way to take revenge on G1 Megatron for overthrowing him, Beast Megatron happily uses Tera-Kura's facilities to mass-produce Concurrence weapons, including a tank transtector that he uses to personally lead an attack on the mayor's office, Trypticon.

To Starscream's shock, G1 Megatron is unwilling to fight back, not wanting to see a subordinate get hurt ever since a previous incident, and instead looks for a way to undo Beast Megatron's brainwashing without harming him. Soundblaster explains that Old Snake has previously turned Transformers into artificial humans and has used the same technology in "reverse" on Beast Megatron, but they can likely restore him to normal if they can recover his extracted beast portion. The Decepticons find that the beast portion, calling itself "Noble", was unceremoniously tossed aside by the Concurrence and picked up by Nightscream, who's gotten him a job as an opera singer at Weirdwolf's circus. G1 Megatron goes there and explains the situation, convincing a reluctant Weirdwolf to let him bring Noble and Beast Megatron together by telling him the the Concurrence is a threat to the circus too. With help from the still-loyal Slipstream, Blackarachnia, and Nightbird, he then takes over Tera-Kura, luring Beast Megatron and Old Snake back to the office where he's waiting in a borrowed tank body of his own.

G1 Megatron tries to talk Beast Megatron down, but his brainwashed counterpart only responds that he'll take over the world and become Decepticon leader in G1 Megatron's place, and the two come to blows. Beast Megatron manages to grab his opponent's gun during the battle, only to find it part of G1 Megatron's plan—the gun is in fact a transformed Noble, who transforms into beast mode, plucks Beast Megatron off of his body and combines with him. Their union restores Beast Megatron's mind, and he joins forces with G1 Megatron to send Old Snake and his forces fleeing. In the aftermath, Beast Megatron remains split between two bodies and assumes an evil personality whenever he's separated from Noble, though Noble tries to keep him on the right path.

Ooooook... Megatron and Noble are a rehash of a Beast Machines plot point. I get that. Even tho it actually succeeded the way it was supposed to, it now makes even less sense:

Beast Machines
- dragon part turned into the dragon Savage
- the technological half was destroyed
- the wolf part was never explained

Legends
- Both halves intact
- Beast part, a T-Rex, turned into a dragon/wolf combo

HOW?!

The wolf part comes from Silver bolt, One of Megatron's servants.That is why once silver bolt comes back, he only has his bird element.

That was never confirmed officially, only speculated.

And raises a further question as to how and why Megatron would have gotten Silverbolt's wolf half anyway. Or why not the bird half too. Especially since he didn't seem to get anything rhino or wasp related from Rhinox and Waspinator, whose sparks were in the same situation as that of Silverbolt.

"While "Savage" is clearly Megatron's dragon half, it is unclear where the DNA for the wolf form "Noble" originated. Some fans have speculated a connection to Silverbolt's wolf fuzor form but nothing in the show particularly supports this."

In regards to the most recent Legends Manga stores......
It is nice that there was basically no "fan service", as it proves that Sakamoto can give us a story without half naked girls everywhere.
What sucks about them is the lack of T-AI and Minerva. :-(
I really miss seeing my girls.
But what is sad is it also proves that Sakamoto can't give us a story involving females without showing them half naked.....just saying. :-?
And yes I know that Windblade was one of the recent stories, but I am just referring to the young girls he likes to "showcase" aka "exploit".

I somewhat agree. It would be nice to have a well-made story involving a female character. What is also troubling is that this might be more to do with (Takara's) view that the target audience don't want that, which I think is also insulting to Japanese/Japan-based collectors, if true.

There is a certain stereotype that it fits with though, being involved with the anime fandom, I come across it being mentioned all the time. The idea is that all the female characters are good for is being the viewers waifus. Laughably I've heard the idea being tossed around that this phenomenon is solely responsible for Japan's declining birth rate. Despite, you know, all the more plausible reasons.

There is more to the idea of a declining birthdate (not really sure to media like this). I would love to give you some more information about it, but it's not "on topic", so PM me if you're interested.

And I would say that the certain type of Japanese "otaku" is a niche within the niche OF Japanese Otaku. If you look at Wonderfestival, for example, most of the erotic stuff was in its own section, with the main areas showing a fairly diverse mix of foreigners and different types of Japanese too.

Yeah I forgot to specify that it was a subset of a larger fandom (one that again can be broken down to smaller subsets)

New update to the online manga. This time it seems to be eight black-and-white mini-comic stories focusing on the Legends World versions of the characters from Beast Wars Neo, and which lead up to the pack-in manga that came with LG-59 Blitzwing, in which Big Convoy was seen turning into Blitzwing's little gray mammoth partner Big Fight.

Maybe offer your talents to Takara's PR department. You can help plot an even better storyline bereft of them icky moe style gals! Just don't tell Sakamoto! But the way I see it, y'all are missing the fan service already 8-}
