RE: Mega Man Animated Series coming in 2017
You know what? I looked at this, did some research and quickly realized that this isn't for me. It's for the kids that grew up with stuff like Ben 10 and is supposed to possibly take reign in that audience. Can it? I dunno, maybe. But if IT DOES, then we're going to have to face the facts that Capcom or another company could try to produce games based on this Mega Man series. If they did, would they be good? Eh, probably hits and misses. As far as I'm concerned, it's been thirty years and there's little more I expect from the Blue Bomber at this point. Give the kids what they want, make some money from it and I'll keep the old Mega Man memories intact within my mind. I never watched the Battle Network stuff either.

RE: Mega Man Animated Series coming in 2017
the whole concept of megaman being the whole superhero thingy side of roc-er, 'aki' can work, if the writers do it right.

...which, considering many videogame -> cartoon, etc adaptions aren't that accurate to its source material, is not likely.


also, look at that smirk!

I had heard about this cartoon becoming a thing back when it was still a rumor, and I was hoping for something along the lines of the Infaune-style or Archie Comics style design. I should have known better. Quite honestly, this doesn't look like it's going to be much better than the Mega Man Ruby Spears cartoon.

RE: Mega Man Animated Series coming in 2017
I know what's happening here. They're trying to cash in with the Legacy Collection all of the people who are already fans of the Mega Man series, and peak interest with more people by delivering the "legacy of a legendary franchise". And then, once they have people paying attention to Mega Man and have it be relevant again, they'll grab even MORE people by using a show that tries to grab as wide of an audience as possible and appeal to as many people as possible instead of actually trying to make it good. It's all in their attempt to make their biggest juggernaut financially viable again.

Well... let's give them the benifit of the doubt. But also we shouldn't just give them our money because it's Mega Man, or else they'll just keep doing anything to cash grab (think about it, they made SIX Mega Man games for one console, and made a bagillion Street Fighter IIs. They've always been taking every advantage possible to make money). So take a page from James Rolfe, and not watch something that looks terrible. But first let's wait until more about this show comes out. I mean Big Hero 6 was a pretty good movie.

I like how everybody is calling it complete shit when NOTHING HAS ACTUALLY BEEN SHOWN YET. Yes, because a single screenshot and a few animation snippets of short nothings is totally enough to base a judgement of an entire show's quality on.

You forget that nowadays, everyone's a critic... which is a damn shame given that these days, trailers can be misleading. It's like opening a blind bag of collectable minifigures, not knowing what you'll get.

And so far from what we've seen, it's a little concerning given that it found itself in a similar situation that Metriod Prime: Federation Force was in (sounds neat at first, but then you realize what's going on elsewhere in the series... ouch).

It doesn't look quite as bad as I thought it would to be honest, but it looks like flash animation and that kinda concerns me.

Seriously though, if anything the cartoon can generate new interest amongst children which is a solid demographic and one of the influencing demographics of video games. If anything, it might kickstart a new game with the new assets, which could be potentially interesting so long as they can hit a solid balance of hitting both new and old fans.

One of the reasons the Sonic fanbase is so split is because up until recently, they've failed to appeal to both audiences at the same time.

In a worst case, we get 5-10 years of poorly made megaman games (as if we've not already reached that phase).
In a best case, we actually get to see new games, hopefully of good quality. Heck, I'd probably just watch the cartoons just to see what they do differently. (Hopefully not too much. The change from 'rock' to 'aki' already makes no sense, and seems like a change for the sake of change. Perhaps some really good changes come out of it?)

RE: Mega Man Animated Series coming in 2017
so apparently the video was taken down by request of the guys from Film Roman LLC. (more details about this right here)

But my question is, HOW, WHO, & WHY did publish this video on the internet if this was not intended for public viewing in the first place? (and how this was found if it was private?)

Also, it's not sure if the show it's going to air on Disney XD.

RE: Mega Man Animated Series coming in 2017
Very interesting circumstances. From what it initially looked like, it was an internal promotional video for Film Roman more than anything. Like, to showcase what they are working and have worked on in the past. I remember hearing that it wasn't a public video to begin with, so someone either leaked it or was snooping around someone's video archive.

Either way, it did give a first glimpse into how the cartoon will look. Despite the immediate denial that that's the final look of the cartoon, the Aki character looks exactly as he does in the promo art. They're pulling tail cause they got caught.

In any case, another promo image came out, and along with it an adjusted design for Mega Man.

RE: Mega Man Animated Series coming in 2017
Mega Man's design did get a little polished up. It's not too much of a difference, but I think it does look a lot cleaner and more striking. I think the big thing though is that he's drawn better. He doesn't have an awkward, shit eating face that looks like it's being eaten by his helmet. Now he just looks confident, and has his face and chin obviously distinct from his helmet. I actually think it looks pretty good.

Although one thing. Is the name of the show actually "Mega Man 52 x 11''". Because that is an awful, clunky name. It's like Kingdom Hearts 358/2
