Rockman EXE Artist Teases Something for 15th Anniversary
It could be nothing, it could be something. Either way, Rockman EXE manga author and illustrator Ryo Takamisaki recently posted the above image on his promotional Twitter account. It's a teaser for something set to be shown in March (likely the 21st), just in time for Rockman EXE's 15th anniversary in Japan. Eagle-eyed fans will note the silhouettes of Rockman.EXE himself and Forte*.
That's all we have to go by for now. I'm wagering this is an anniversary-related one-shot, which seems like something Takamisaki would do. Then again, who can say. It's entirely up for speculation.
These next couple months are big for EXE. There's an anniversary event, new merchandise, and even a reprint of Rockman EXE Official Complete Works. It's an exciting (and hopeful) time to be an EXE/Battle Network fan. You'd be wise to keep your expectations in check, though.
(*fun observation: Forte's helmet fins are unusually angular for Takamisaki's typical style.)
