Mega Man DVD Collection Gets Boxart, Details

Following Rightstuf's lead, is now taking pre-orders for "MegaMan DVD Collection 1," a re-release of ADV Film's out of print 2003 boxed set.

Amazon lists the set as a single disc release with a run time of 286 minutes. The '03 box set was a 3 disc set, so I guess it's safe to assume ADV managed to compile the entire first season onto one disc. Other than that, the set is identical to its predecessor. A shame really, I was really holding out for some bonus features and the like. Typical ADV.

If you missed out on the former season one set, be sure to pick this one up January 27th, 2009.


  1. I recommend you people not to buy it because it is different storyline from Japan version. For an example, Protoman was evil in this version but Japan version he was good and was Rockman's brother. The usa always make things confused to Rockman/Megaman fan. Shame on you, CAPCOM OF USA!

  2. What sort of bonus features could they possibly put on there? O_o

    I wouldn't be too concerned about a flame war, most people know that a lot of Rockman related things get botched in translation/adaption. >_>

  3. Bring on the cheesy american MegaMan :)

    I'll be sticking my MST3K stick on shadowrama and riffing episodes of it for days on end :)

  4. Proto Man is still Mega Man's brother in the US version, and Proto Man used to work for Wily, so it's not entirely inaccurate.

    As I recall, in Wish Upon a Star, Proto Man wasn't so good the entire way through, still wanting to fight Mega Man out of rivalry at one point.

    Anyway, the US toon has its moments, but like the Japanese cartoon, it's pretty much canon only to itself, and not the games.
