A good example of how the bulk of the Almanac operates.The book is divided into two basic sections: Part One systematically covers every aspect of the show - characters, events, culture, settings, and so on- all from an "in-universe" perspective. Nearly every major character gets a chance to give us their take on other characters and happenings in the show, and even minor characters are given the chances to describe one another. It's a great approach, and one that keeps the Almanac from being dry in the way that many comprehensive animation guides tend to be - and that Transformers Animated as a series never was. The character designs are particularly extensive, with designer Derrick J. Wyatt going so far as to provide finalized art for characters that were being considered for inclusion in the series proper but never used. The other real standout of this portion of the book is the "Events" section. It includes every episode, along with the Fan Club-exclusive fiction and even the six issues of The Arrival, the comics presided over by series head writer Marty Isenberg. And all in proper chronological order. And to keep with the spirit of the series and the in-universe presentation, the episodes aren't presented as just reports or synopses, but occasionally as magazine articles or other "found" items - in one case, as a cereal box. ("Garbage O's!")
