Rockman: Wish Upon A Star Production Art Surfaces

Let's kick 2017 off with something I've been hoping to see come to light for many years. My pal Rock Miyabi just uploaded a complete set of Rockman: Upon A Star production art on his blog. These materials offer a rare glimpse into the creation of the 1993 OVA and, more specifically, the 2nd episode. 

The materials have been split up into four posts: part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4. Each sheet features character and object designs along with individual color specifications. Hit up those links and check 'em out! There's some really neat stuff to behold. My personal favorite? The Wily Death Star!

Enjoy and happy new year!


  1. A lot of it looks a lot like the model charts from that one rock man art book.

    Was it made for the ova's specifically or just "we have it already, let's use it"?

  2. I just so happened to have watched those episodes today on YouTube. A lot of potential for a quality animated series, but they had to blend it with "real world" scenarios and the cliché of characters coming out the TV. It was so hilariously baaaaaaaaad XD, that dub too, omg, talk about bad lip sync. It's so bad, it's good, cus it's megaman.

  3. That's pretty neat. I know the Mega Man OVA was written off as too educational and all, but finding stuff like this is still neat.
