Talking About Splash Woman
With Rockman 9 rapidly approaching, I can't help but get excited to face off against Splash Woman, the series' first female antagonist (well, in Original series terms that is).
So readers, what are your opinions on Splash Woman? Do you feel it was a wise choice to mix things up a bit and debut a female Robot Master? Or do you feel her presence has broken the traditional “____Man” pattern we've known and loved for over two decades?
Personally, I think her presence adds some diversity to the “nearly female-less” Original series cast (Roll, Kalinca and Plum being the only ones I can think up of off the top of my head).
From what I've gathered, the fan response has been generally positive. I can't tell you how many pieces of Splash Woman fan art I've seen in the past 24 hours (both clean and dirty. *ahem!*) from 4chan alone.
What do you think? Comment!
