Rockman Gigamix At A Glance

Akihabara Channel has a brief report on Rockman Gigamix, the latest comic anthology from Hitsohi Ariga.  The report summarizes the book's contents, and best of all, offers several images of the newest stories covering Rockman 7, Rockman 3 and Battle & Chase. A portion of the article follows.

" This vol.1 of Gigamix features two new stories, over 100 pages long, that go with Rockman 3 and Battle & Chase/ Rockman 7 respectably. What is awesome about his work is that he makes great faithful arrangements to the character designs and personality. In the case of Rockman 3, Blues (Protoman/Breakman) and Shadow man kicks ass.

The Battle & Chase story is a lot more comical, but it has its moments. The underlining theme of Ariga’s rockman seems to be, can all robots be friends regardless of their background? The rivarly and teamwork between Rockman and Dr.Wily’s Robots feels great to read."

Full report, more images at Akihabara Channel.


  1. Sweet! :D

    Gotta love Auto running over Slashy without a second thought.

  2. Brb, I need to go change my pants.

  3. I'm sorry, but I still associate the words "Gigamix" and "Rockman" (hell, even just "Gigamix" by itself) with that awesome remix CD of the songs in the ZX series from spring 2008.

  4. Awesome! Glad to see a full chapter of Rockman 7 finally. And man, Doc Robot looks so cool in Ariga's style.

    Just bought my copy minutes ago, so I can't wait for it to get to me!

  5. Oh my gawd. Breakman. YES.
    Getting my copy now :)

    Man, I hope Ariga shows some love to the Stardroids in his next book. They're my all-time favorite guys. :D
