Today is the 10th Annual "Rockman Day"

Happy Rockman Day, everyone! It's the tenth one, believe it or not. If you have no idea what I'm talking about or need a refresher why today is considered to be special among fans, read all about it here.

To make a long story short, though, in Japanese "roku" is 6 and "ku/kyuu" is 9 and together they form "rokku". "'Rokku' Man", get it? This trend of making numbers into words is why the number 69 is often associated with Rockman (the Support Car's plate, for example). Today is also the day that the events of Rockman 2 take place.

As per tradition, fans all over the world are celebrating the day with commemorative fan-art. The piece above comes to us from none other than Hitoshi Ariga, Rockman-super fan and author/illustrator of Rockman Megamix. Hit the jump below to see more fan-art!

  2. Who knew 6/9 was national Rockman Day?

  3. I like Roll Day (06/06, "ro" + "ro"), more.
    Sadly, it's not quite as recognized as Rock Day, for obvious reasons.

    In any case, Happy Rock Day, y'all!

  4. We're also getting lots of fanart today for the Hikari brothers' birthday.

  5. Awwwww thats awesome. See, Capcom FINALLY LISTENED TO US and, Unluke Bamco Namdai, they did better. :)
