Yes, Steven Universe was mediocre in the beginning.

I think Cat Fingers is basically everyone's most disliked episode.

Yes!

The unique Twin Peaks-like setting probably helped.

I LOVE Gravity Falls! One of the best Disney shows this generation! ^_^
A shame it ended with 2 seasons but I understand the creator's desire to end it short as it keep its charm without dragging it over many seasons and losing its flavor. Though they might continue it one day consider the hidden message by Bill in Stan's mindscape.


Anyway back on topic so how is everyone's thoughts on the 2017 Mega Man design? I do like it but personally it should've been more like this fan's rendering of it:



^Do you think this would've been a better look for the 2017 MM?

I personally prefer that yeah, but even despite my cynicism I'm still willing to give the other one a chance.

Ugh I don't know, that design really doesn't look good, the cyan parts are way too jarring. That and it looks way too much like mini X.

Well only the helmet part gives him that X look but he does look like classic Mega Man more. Or do you prefer this instead?

Uh no, those round Classic Megaman arms make the entire design fall apart not to mention the round nonsensical stomach cover.  I still prefer Aki over both of them.

Still not sure if I should judge the new show design because all we've seen is one frame-I kinda want to see it in action before I say I like it or not.

That and if I like the show's writing too. Either way it's quite a ways off.  8D

Yeah I admit while I'm fine with Aki's design and don't really mind Mega Mini as weird as it is since we don't know what the heck it is I am worried with Man of Action's track record.  They can make anything a hit or a huge miss.

Eh, well can't win them. ^_^

Well I did enjoy watching Ben 10 (prefer the first series anime-like designs) and Generator Rex shows. I hope they made this MM show decent.

If it has decent writing and developed characters I'll honestly be happy-I can get over character designs in the end-I liked Adventure Time and I can't say I really like it's artstyle that much.

Man of Action's artstyle isn't what I'm worried about but rather the quality of the cartoons since again Man of Action has a hit or miss track record.

Granted it seems they only really had a hand in the first Ben 10 so I can't blame the mess of the current Ben 10 franchise on them and Generator Rex was pretty good.  On the other hand there's Ultimate Spiderman, which really sucks on multiple levels.

Any idea if the direction of Ultimate Spiderman was on Marvel's end or theirs?

Seems to be Man of Action, Brian Micheal Bendis, and Paul Dini, ironically, who are the brains behind it according to TV Tropes.  Executive Producers are Stan Lee and Jeph Loeb.

I'll do some more digging to be sure.

EDIT: Yeah Man of Action, Bendis and Dini are in charge of the writting.

Well, let's hope this doesn't end up like Ultimate Spider-Man.

Well in the initial press release stuff and such, they stated something along the lines of "well everyone knows mega's comedy, so we hoped to expand along those lines," although I may be incorrectly paraphrasing there. So I still say that Capcom and Man of Action is attempting their own Sonic Boom, and honestly I can't really see Mega Man being whacky and funny in the same way as Sonic. Especially considering the whole plot synopsis so far doesn't even mention Dr. Wily at all and they really are going with the generic schoolboy with a hero persona style.

We'll have to wait and see how they do it then, I mean it could work depending on Aki's personality and side characters, but it will be hard to pull off well.  I mean honestly this really doesn't give me much hope, but I can't discount it til I see it.

Yeah Aki is a Robot but I think he's pretending to be Human to have something of a normal life.  Think of it like being a Super Hero but with comedy apparently.

Yeah I admit I am more worried now since honestly Man of Action's comedy isn't very good, and when I think of past Megaman and comedy I think Ruby Spears and that's not good.

Ruby Spear series had plenty of good funny moments. Wily was pretty entertaining too.  8D
