Hitoshi Ariga, author and illustrator behind the likes of Mega Man Megamix and countless other blue bomber comics, is cooking up something. Yesterday, the man who draws Mega Man for a living dropped the following enigmatic message at his DeviantART journal:
"I'm currently working on a new Mega Man project!"
Short and to the point. With no other details provided, we're left with little to nothing to speculate over. Even so, Ariga's has typically brought us new comics and collected volumes in the past; more recently, the Rockman Maniax anthology. The prospect of something along those lines is high.
Still, there's one thing that I found particularly interesting about all of this. Ariga has made a tradition of teasing new projects at his personal blog... but not this time. Perhaps this new project is geared specifically to English-speaking audiences; hence dropping the tease exclusively via DeviantART? Eh, it's something to chew on.
When it comes to teasers of any sort, it's best to keep you expectations in-check. The last thing you need is to set yourself up for disappointment (I think we've had enough of those for one year).
I'll certainly be keeping an ear out. Hoping to hear more on this soon!
Thanks for the tip, Erica!
