SF's biggest prblem with being a sequel series to BN, (like X is to Classic,) is that it does too little to actually support that. I mean, Classic to X is still the same technology, robots, abeit more advanced, and the main characters have their very roots in the previous series. theres always something to connect with the past.
however, here, we go right from advanced internet, to radio waves above peoples heads. the change is so big, and all the series does to connect with BN, is Megaman EXE crossover bonuses, where you find Lan's journal and then meet Megaman. i dunno. I just guess they could do a better job there. It just never really "felt" like it connected.
