Tokyopop is a North American manga publisher that released a series of Cine-Manga based on the Armada and Energon television series. Cine-Manga adapt anime episodes into pocket-sized graphic novel form, laying out screen captures like comic book panels and adding dialogue bubbles and sound effects.
The term "Cine-Manga" is commonly used to refer to all sorts of tv-to-manga adaptations like this, but is actually a trademark by Tokyopop.
- From the dramatis personæ:
The Mystery of the Missing Mini-cons
- Mockup covers bore the title 'Return of the Missing Minicon.' [sic]
- This is the only english-language source for the spelling of "Olyhalcons", much-mangled in the process of being translated from Greek to Japanese to English. (The original root being "orichalcum".)
The Starsaber Dilemma
- Mockup covers bore the much funnier title 'Contains Episodes "Overmatch" & "Credulous."'
A New Threat
- Demolishor's opening monologue says it's been 20 years since Armada instead of 10.
- Optimus Prime puts Desert City on "Def-Com 4," rather than Def-Con or Devcon.
- According to the dramatis personæ at the start of the book, Miranda Jones is also a scientist, like her husband.
- Alpha Q is described as "the evil Power Core of Unicron," a misunderstanding stemming from a badly translated line in the cartoon.
The Ultimate Betrayal
- A number of errors in the dramatis personæ
- Ironhide (Energon) is described transforming into a fire truck. (His profile replaced Inferno's from volume 1.)
- Carlos is incorrectly described as working in Desert City.
- Demolishor is described as transforming into a dump truck with a heavy arsenal, which he does... but not yet.
- Scorpinok [sic] is has 3 modes; a scorpion, a jet, or a construction vehicle.
- The language of Alpha Q's description of Megatron's sword as "a Star Saber" has been strengthened to "the Star Saber", which makes a lot more sense in context... but is still wrong.
- The composition of the team on Mars in Megatron's Sword is made more explicit: the 3 Energon Saber team members are Mini-Cons while the other Autobots on the surface are Omnicons.
The Rise of Megatron
