This month's issue of Licensing Source Book Europe has a small blurb on DHX's upcoming Mega Man animated series. According to the issue (page 62), the series has been renamed to "Mega Man: Fully Charged" and it will make an appearance at this year's licensing expo (May 22-24). The series will reportedly air on Cartoon Network in this US this fall accompanied by a toyline from Jakks Pacific.
For the uninitiated, here's the show's official synopsis from DHX's website:
"Aki Light is a regular, upbeat, robot schoolboy. He lives in the futuristic world of Silicon City, co-inhabited by robots and humans. But this robot boy has a secret... Deep within his programming lie protocols that can transform him into the powerful hero, Mega Man! When the villainous Sgt. Night and his evil team of Robot Masters emerge with ill-intentions, Mega Man dedicates himself to protecting the citizens of Silicon City.
Equipped with his Mega Buster arm cannon and the ability to absorb the powers of his opponents, he bravely battles the wickedest of villains. In this brand new series inspired by the iconic Mega Man video game, comical, action-packed adventures abound as we follow the journey of Aki Light and his alter-ego, Mega Man, as he strives to balance life as an ordinary robot boy AND an amazing superhero."
Expect to see more from Mega Man: Fully Charged very soon.
