I have no hope whatsoever, and that design is atrocious. Never thought Id be praising Xover design

Xover actually looked like it could fit into the MM continuity. This, on the other hand, is just...something else entirely. I don't know what it is, but it ain't Mega Man.

It's different. Which doesn't mean it's bad. We'll see.

What happens in Vegas stays on Youtube. I also stream on Twitch from time to time.

Honestly I like it, it reminds me of X and Megaman Exe.  And at least he doesn't have the Egg feet, though I could do with some more armor.

Sweet, now I can be a hipster and say I preferred the OLD megaman.

Nothing's gonna top the classic artstyle circa MM8 for me personally.

This is.... yikes. No contrasting colors, shades of blue blue and darker blue, not even Classic Megaman was this flat looking.

I expected Protodude's readership to [parasitic bomb] themselves and screech about franchise death, and received it in abundance.

As for my reaction: I'm intrigued; the fact that this Megaman is named Aki suggests to me that this may not be purely Classic-based.

oh look it gets better

What and why?

I mean things like this, if done right, can be good but this seem... unnecessary for Mega Man unless it was Roll and/or Dr. Light calling him on coms to communicate with him on missions.

I'm still going to give this a chance, but this is not giving me a lot of confidence in this series.

It probably is and it's 100% the right decision.

you know what was also a reboot, and was actually good?

Battle Network.

call me cynical, but this is not giving me the same good vibes

I'm being a cynic too, but mostly because the concept for the cartoon reeks of modern CN trends and a new continuity/reboot on Mega Man's 30th anniversary is way too coincidental. Out with the old, besides familiar characters and elements, in with the new and an attempt to start Mega Man a-new with a Sonic Boom style of comedy and light-hearted action.

And after Sonic Boom, which I really didn't mind much but didn't like much either, I can't see this as rising above anything more than average at best.

I like how every one else online is judging the new series based on two concept art pieces and simple description of the overall theme.

We don't even have a trailer yet-so I'm not going to even try to claim I have informed opinion until we see one. Would also like to point out both Transformers Animated and Transformers Prime had terrible pre-trailer reveals and both series turned out to be enjoyable and well written even beast wars had the same issues pre-release with people tearing it apart on concept alone-what I'm saying is we as Megaman fans should be used to "reboots" at this point (despite the lose connections between the various X related series) so chill and lets wait for some actual in show footage in motion.  8D

Flame I'm mostly looking at you.  :P

That's what I mean by cautiously curious. This could either turn out great like Sonic Boom's animated series/Transformers Prime or it can be another PPG. It'll swing either way.

Is Sonic Boom even that good?

A better example would be Spectacular Spider-Man. Awful character designs, but the show itself is amazing. Like, really damn good.

Still, I highly doubt this Mega Man series will be anywhere near the same league, because a huge reason why Spectacular was critically acclaimed is due to Greg Weisman's involvement.

I saw the episode with Shadow, and I chuckled a couple of times. But I don't know, it doesn't seem like anything above average.

Here's how I look at this whole thing.

It's not Rock and I'm glad it's not Rock. If it were Rock, then I'd be upset. But it's not. He's Aki, and they're making a whole new type of MegaMan series around him, which is the right thing to do. That way, this can essentially be judged on its own, good or bad. This isn't going to take away from the classic series, the X series, or any other beloved MegaMan series. It's a chance for them to get a new generation to spend money on MegaMan stuff, be it games, toys, etc. It's essentially what My Little Pony did, and it worked magnificently. Like Phi & Blue mentioned, plenty of other series have shown off terrible concept art, like Spectacular Spidey (siiiiiiiiigh [tornado fang] you Marvel), Transformers: Prime/Beast Wars, etc. Hell, I was not a fan of the new look/animation of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show and turns out it's actually really good.

Also, it's not like there's ever been a good MegaMan cartoon before. Love them as I do, both RS-MM and Battle Network were bad cartoons! XD

So much this.

Megaman needs fresh fans-it needs to distance it's self from the past and reinvent it's self for a new generation. Even if this reboot only turns out to be average-thats not necessarily a bad thing, not everything has to be the next Avatar:The Last Airbender or Steven Universe; Sometimes just being good is enough-and either way having Megaman being in other mediums can only really help the franchise at this point, because if we are getting a rebooted series you can bet there will be a video game tie in.

The funny thing is, Steven Universe did NOT start out as a show I liked at all. It wasn't until they actually started getting into character development and their lore that it started getting interesting. But that took more time than I usually give shows, and I stuck with it because my friend insisted. Haha.

Kinda the same way here-although I never really clicked with SU. I know it's a well written show with great characters and I actually find them quite likeable-but for reasons I'm not to sure about I could never get into that frame of mind where I would religiously try to see the new episodes.

Not like Last Air Bender and Korra where I was constantly trying to find the new episodes and binge watch the series. Again not saying I dislike SU just could never really get into it, confusing I know.  8D
