  4. As far as we know, this is gonna end up kid hero action flick like Miraculous Ladybug. I'd rather prefer slightly more mature approach like Archie Comics, but apparently most of old fans are not the target audience so yeah. Let's see what they can pull off.

    1. If i had to compare with something, i'd say this is going to be ben10. MoA does'nt really have a "ladybug" feel to their work even if the premice look similar to lady, i think it will be ben10 in tone.
      This is going to be ben10, now let's just hope it will be orignal ben10 and not 2016 ben 10.

  5. If only they decide to change the story to be more like the games rather than "He goes to school and it gets bullied, but he has powers!!! And has a little friend on his head! But nobody knows he is actually Megaman!" What's wrong with "A household robot with a brave heart decided to fight the evil robots programed by Dr. Wily by turning himself into Megaman, a robot who fights for everlasting peace!"

    2. He has a point tho, wish upon a star is the best looking Mega Man Classic cartoon in existence.

      Delete
    3. Wish Upon a Star was also a load of juvenile "let's learn about Japan" garbage that was just children's education with Mega Man painted over it. Not exactly setting the bar very high there.

    4. I mean, the last Anon said it was the "best looking Mega Man Classic cartoon in existence."

      That doesn't really have anything to do with the actual content of the show. The animation/art was good.

    5. Dont act like weaboos

    6. Just because a show looks good doesn't mean it is good.

    7. and no one say it was, but the initial comment was about the artsyle. what anon1 was saiying is that he much prefer the japanese artstyle to the western version.
      so, nothing was said about wether the show was or will be good.
      and that's not being weeb, that's just having a preference, if you have two version you're bound to have a preference to one of the two. and megaman being a japanese video game with japanese style design, so it's not surprising that some of the people used to megaman are more used to, and thus prefer, seing him in a japanese style.

    8. Just because a show isn't good doesn't mean it doesn't look good.

    9. WUAS was not that bad content wise either, even tho it was one of those educational deals it still had tones of action, pretty good music and good amounts of references to the games.

      It was just a lighthearted educational nod OVA to Mega Man and Japan, it didn't try to be any more than that. It never advertised itself as the Mega Man cartoon to look out for, it was just a standalone side thing.

      This though, this is a proper cartoon, advertising itself as some kind of call to all Mega Man fans like it actually gives a damn about Mega Man, established fans or bringing them together with new fans. A project with creators that have shown in the past that they barely know anything about Mega Man.

  8. I wish they could hire me in a position where I can cancel the MM cartoon, so I could cancel it.

  9. Some People Never Learn.
    This made remember me when capcom opened the lab to make that fans could help with megaman legends 3 game.
    I hope that this project sucks and keep megaman franchise rest in peace.

  10. This crappy cartoon looked better when it was 2d.

  11. There's no greater tragedy for animators than being forced to work on crappy shows they hate.
    And they make it sound like opportunity.

  12. Fantastic, they really are going with the 3D animation then.

    Oh, I'm sorry, not fantastic, unfortunate. Really not big on 3D animation

  13. Flashbacks of the Devroom.

    Though this time it's on a project I don't have much interest in myself.

  14. That pic would make more sense if it said "We're Firing"

  15. I can't be the only who doesn't think this looks all that bad. Sure, it won't help the Megaman franchise in any way but it can't hurt it more than it is already hurt. Not like this franchise has anything else happening right now other than shoddy merchandise from time to time.

    1. you're not. and i actually think most people don't think it look that bad "in itself", but that it will suck as a adaption.

    2. "Sure, it won't help the Megaman franchise in any way but it can't hurt it more than it is already hurt."

      That's not actually true. Assuming it won't help, which it might to be fair, but if it's particularly bad it can damage the brand.

      Even if Capcom isn't going to do anything with it for a while after this, it could still potentially harm the future potential of the franchise.

  16. I'm keeping an open mind until we actually see the final product, but it's a huge "red flag" that they're looking for storyboard artists. If storyboards are being outsourced that means the studio is making this on the cheap, which almost guarantees that nobody outside their 6-11 target demo will care to watch this.

  17. Why does Capcom keep trying to westernize the Mega Man series? Its pretty clear from later games in the series that its very anime in its story telling and designs, just embrace that part of itself over trying to hid it I say.

    1. Thank YOU! someone has the right idea. Whats wrong with using the old design which is going to be the next cash cow for capcom?

  18. The only way that this series can work is scrapping the whole school bot idea, go with something along the lines of the Archie comics, make the animation 2D (sheesh, I feel like 3D is becoming the new Flash) and reminiscent of anime, and for the love of things holy, no memes or internet humor! It makes shows cheap when they try to use Internet humor to keep up with the kids. But that's wishful thinking on my end.
