Rockman EXE Anime Officially Heads to YouTube. In Japan. For a Limited Time.

Here's a pleasant surprise that comes with some caveats. Coro Coro Comics' just dropped the first 56 episodes of the Rockman EXE anime on YouTube for free!..
... but as you may have already deduced, these episodes are not only region-locked but available for a limited time. Folks living in Japan can stream the show until January 14th, 2021. After that, they're gone! You'll need to resort to a VPN to watch if you live outside Japan.

That's all there is to report on this front for now. It's always heartening to see the EXE anime return in some capacity -- reruns, re-releases, etc. And while it will only be available to watch for a month, I'm hopefully it will attract a whole new audience.

Long live EXE!


  1. oh boy, mega man's birthday tomorrow, wonder if capcom is doing anything at all.

    1. I doubt it. But... That being said, there is a lot of activity the last few days that makes me wonder...

  2. You can download it with y2mate without needing a vpn but you'll be limited to 480p (l'm not sure if this is already the best quality they are dropping or a limitation from the site it self)

    1. Jdownloader is much better. Can download from youtube and and a bunch of other sites in the highest quality available

  3. It's region locked for me ;-; I'm from the US, also are there english subs for when I get a vpn?

  4. I actually recommend watching the anime on unofficial sources because the quality of the official anime looks terrible (even the Japanese version). In contrast, the unofficial versions are much higher quality DVD-rip. There are no reasons to watch them "officially" if the non-official method is easily accessible and has much better quality. If you don't mind watching the sub, I recommend you watch them here: https://stesubs.wordpress.com/


    Edit: You can also find other Mega Man (including Star Force, Mega Man X OVA and the old US Cartoon) anime on these websites: https://anime.megamanonline.org/

    You can also try to find them on nyaa or 9anime but I cannot ensure the quality.
