looks bleh still but i imagine its better looking in motion.

also i get that megaman is a japanese property but why does a japanese company like Dentsu have the rights to a US TV series that's most likely not going to ever be shown in japan? Just so they can be stingy with copyright and take down videos?

Heck if I know, I also had no idea that the Megaman Cartoon was proposed for Cartoon Network and moved to Disney XD, or maybe I forgot.  Considering Cartoon Network's tendency to shove "high rating media darling" shows in our faces constantly ie Johnny Test and Teen Titans GO and shafting others in terms of scheduling I don't blame them for the transfer.

Spectacular Spidey was also simplistic, yet it's one of the best goddamn superhero cartoons out there.

I'm more concerned about the writing quality at this point.

Transformers Animated was the same, an odd visual style but in the end the writing shone through and it was one of the best TF series that like Spiderman was cut tragically short due to  BS from Hasbro wanting their own cartoon channel.

Then again TF Animated had alot of Beast Wars people behind it so the quality was gonna be there regardless.

I'd say lets see a few complete episodes and not worry about the animation for the moment.

sure seems like damage control with that quick takedown.
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

Nah it's just Japanese Anime Companies are dicks when it comes to copy right protection.

Wow, that stuff looks like a bad deviantArt project. The writing better be spectacular to make this watchable. Given the plot details we already know however, my expectations are so low I'm about to pull out the shovel and dig it's grave early so it can settle right in just as the airing of episode 1 comes to a close.

He sounds like a 40 year old man imitating a child.

And I thought this was 2D animation, what happened

Did they ever say it was going to be 2D? I honestly don't remember anymore.

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

People are already calling it Sonic Boom: Mega Man edition, but let's be honest; at least even with how much the characters got flanderized to fit a group dynamic, Sonic Boom doesn't [tornado fang] with the characters enough to make everything unrecognizable, and any fan could jump into any episode and still see it as Sonic. Mega-Mini looks like a forced gag character inserted for merchandise intents and Mega Man- oh i'm sorry, Aki Light doesn't.. doesn't really seem to evoke 'Mega Man' to me with his strange noodleboy tron redesign. It feels more like a chinese ripoff.

Maybe i'm being too harsh but with how they're butchering Ben 10 now, I don't really expect this to break trending expectations with these kinds of shows.

Sonic Boom is genuinely good and genuinely funny at times. So far this just looks cringy.

(watches clip with sound muted)

Well, at least the animation itself looks okay-ish? Still waiting for a preview focused on the actual setting; I really hope they did something interesting with it and didn't just leave it at 'random future cities infested with Robot Masters'.

So either A: They are waiting for capcom to finish what ever game they want to release along side this reboot

B: They want to retool stuff due to negative fan reaction to the initial footage

or C: This is the red flag that the series is not ever gonna come out.

Or I guess they just needed more time to finish stuff--if you dont want to be dramatic.  8D

Well maybe they'll cut out their weak link named Canada.

They also apparently went back to Cartoon Network again for some reason.

I think the delay is because of the change to the CG style like with Miraculous Ladybug.

So in the latest MoA-MM news post at Protodude's site, there's more than a few people freaking out over the possibility that Megaman 11 would be based on this show.

Even though there's no precedent of Capcom pulling something like that with MM. The rights tangle alone would put them off; besides, they tend to ignore stuff outside the games unless it's good for a laugh (and even then, most of the Bad Box Art stuff was in SPIN-OFFS).

Archie-MM was one of the only ongoing bits of media we had for a while, and we never got an MM11 that integrated some of the comic characters.

Let's be honest here, if they're going to release any sort of a game at this point it's going to be a reboot/reimagining based on the show (if it does well). The classics will likely go untouched.

True, it would also be the smarter idea-classic megaman and it's spinoffs are really only remembered by older gamers at this point, the reboot needs to draw in NEW blood into the franchise.

That said, goodbye for good for any older series if that happens. Goodbye Legends 3 forever and goodbye ZX3 forever.

What's resolving a cliffhanger anyway? They've done a good job taking a note from Valve on that front.

I love you almost as much as I love booty parades.

You say that like Capcom had any plans to revive MML3 or start ZX3 to begin with. :U

Seriously--while it seems like Capcom's getting better, this is still the same company that dumped MML3 at practically the first chance they got. I'm not sure what it'd take to get that project running again.
