Description: The Transformers

Notice: The Transformers is not Japanese animation! It is a cartoon produced in the US. However, it was animated and shown in Japan, and also spawned various anime sequels, updates, and spinoffs, therefore I have decided to include it on this site. If you're one of those hard-core anime purists who can't stand seeing a non-anime series on a site dedicated to Japanese animation, then just press the Back button on your web browser and pretend like you were never here.

One of the defining cartoon/toylines of the 1980's, this is the series that started it all! This classic tells the story of the Cybertronians, Sentient robotic lifeforms capable "transforming" into different forms. The Cybertronians were engaged in a war that lasted long before the existence of mankind. Cybertron was divided into two factions. The heroic Autobots are lead by their beloved leader Optimus Prime, who was entrusted with the Matrix of Leadership. The opposing side are the evil Decepticons lead by the powerful Megatron, who seeks nothing but total domination over the universe.

The War of the Cybertronians has lasted centuries, and the Autobots were losing the battle. They escape to Earth on the gigantic ship called the Ark, with the Decepticons giving chase in the Nemesis. However, both ships crash land on Prehistoric Earth and remained there in stasis until the 1980's when the war began once more....

The Autobots and Decepticons both setup base on Earth and continue their age-old war as "robots in disguise." The Cybertronians choose normal vehicular forms in order to blend in keep their battle in secret. The Autobots befriend humans Spike and Sparkplug Witwicky, who also aids the Autobots in their fight against the Decepticons. Will the Autobots win? And will they be able to stop Megatron and the Decepticons from wreaking havoc once again?
