Have Yourself A Very Twisted Christmas

With Christmas lurking just around the corner, Japanese Rockman fans are getting into the spirit with a merry old tradition.

The above image of Bit from Iwamoto's Rockman X manga screaming "MERRY CHRISTMAS!!" is a hugely popular meme this time of year in Japan. The holiday cry is accompanied by a yearly bounty of fan-art and tributes:

You can read more about this little tradition at Auto's place here. It's a great read with some older art.

In closing, here's Iwamoto's Christmas piece for the year.

Have a good one, folks!


  1. Meeeeeerry Christmas!!

    *hopes Auto posts on his affiliated site again this year*

  2. Here. One more from me:

  3. Is the manga really that rare and has not been translated yet? I have the manga and is translated to Malay and this scene has that X and Zero heavily defeated and later they were tied up to be prepared for execution by Bit and Byte.

    Bit broadcast this moment through the world as everyone is preparing for Christmas, while all of this happen Marian and the previous defeated Robot rush through time to save X and Zero and in the end this scene is shown as Marian thrown X upgrade to X and then boom Bit laughed as this all happen.

    And the revenge time!

  4. Bit is a cool looking character. Oh and marry stuff and things everyone.
