Title: New Mega Man Animated Series coming to Television in 2017
Post by: Protoman Blues on June 02, 2015, 07:30:21 PM
*blows dust off new News button*

Haven't had to do this in a while, but well yeah, this is legit news. According to this article on Deadline (http://deadline.com/2015/06/mega-man-video-game-tv-animated-series-1201435971/), we are getting a brand new Mega Man animated series on television in 2017, which would coincide with the 30th anniversary of our beloved franchise. Dentsu Entertainment USA and Man of Action Entertainment will partner up to create this new iteration of the Super Fighting Robot (see what I did there?  8D). If you need some street cred on Man of Action Entertainment, here you go.

Quote
Man of Action Entertainment is the bi-coastal creative collective responsible for such mega-hits as the Ben 10 empire and Generator Rex on Cartoon Network, and writing and producing Marvelís Ultimate Spider-Man and Marvelís Avengers Assemble for Disney XD. They are also the creators of the characters and team that populate Disney/Marvelís hit feature film, Big Hero 6, the first-ever Disney animated feature based on a Marvel property.

More on this as it develops. Either way, WOOHOO!!!!

I'm very happy about this because essentially THIS is what I've been calling for. I said back during all the [parasitic bomb] that went down with MML3 is that they need to re-garner interest in the franchise and get new kids and such to want to play MegaMan and this is the best way to do it.

Well I kind of liked Generator Rex and the first 2 Ben 10's before Ultimate Alien before they decided to [parasitic bomb] on Ben's character growth by making him reverse his maturity after he defeated the High Breed.  God I hated that.

That's the true hope I have for this show. That it will rekindle interest as well as garner more interest from this new generation who knows nothing about MegaMan.

Post by: Just fuck my shit up on June 02, 2015, 09:42:21 PM
I mean, take it into perspective. The last proper MM title - Rockman 10 - was released in 2010,  five years ago. Five. Years. (I don't count the other stuff like Xover and SF x MM).

I mean, for such a big name franchise as Mega Man, that's ridiculous. There have been more Resident Evils and Metal Gear Solids in the last five years than there has entries in a series that predates the former and is as old as the latter.

Yep.

The best thing that could happen is that this serves as a repeat of what EXE/BN did for the brand back in the early 2000s: new franchise, new take on a classic character revamped for a modern day audience, which goes on to sell well and makes the brand healthier, as a whole. Whether that means revamping a Rockman we already know (Classic or X), or a brand new series, that's up to Capcom and co. But to say the least, it's the most exciting thing we've had to look forward to regarding the brand and I'm looking forward to it. Besides, remember how we were still getting X and Zero games, even as EXE was the main flagship during that period? If I could at least get a periodic Classic series release every so often in between releases of the new series, that'd be nice. 8D

In any case, I know someone over at Archie Comics must be whooping and jumping for joy over this news. They're looking to be FINALLY getting some help from Capcom when it comes to trying to sell a comic based on one of their IPs!

Something makes me wonder if this was done to counter the Mighty No. 9 cartoon. And a western-style Mega Man could be an Archie case or a Ruby Spears. Or even worse and I don't want to imagine that being possible.

Well, take what you can of it, the first image of the 2017 Mega Man series is shown:

(http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/megamancartoon_thumb.jpg)

I kinda like the "Tron-like" look they've given him though they can have a larger image of him and make his arms and legs a little buffer but it is an art style. Many might not agree with it.

Then the synopsis:

"Aki Light is a robot living in Silicon City. Despite being a robot, he still leads a normal life and attends school. He also has quite a secret. His programming allows him to transform into Mega Man, complete with a Mega Buster and nanocore armor. He has to balance leading a dual life, where heís a normal, robot attending school with other kids, while also transforming into Mega Man to protect Silicon City. Rush will also return as his pet robot dog."

Got it from here: http://www.siliconera.com/2016/05/26/capcom-shows-off-mega-mans-new-look-2017-animated-series/ (http://www.siliconera.com/2016/05/26/capcom-shows-off-mega-mans-new-look-2017-animated-series/)


What do you guys think?

Expect a lot of people crying and spewing insults on how Capcom screwed it up once again...

Judging by this and another press release I saw, (http://www.dhxmedia.com/newsreleases/dhx-media-dentsu-entertainment-usa-inc-strike-global-deal-new-animated-mega-man-series/#) it's pretty much the situation I feared if i'm gauging this correctly; their own continuity take, more of a comedy / slice of life focus with the action being something that's just expected (like the new Powerpuff Girls or Sonic Boom), and new things like the 'Mega-Mini' character that sound like toyline advertisements.

I took a look at what people say about the PPG reboot and... ughhhh. I am speechless.

I really hope this new Mega Man series ISN'T too bad, but it's like people are afraid of making kid superhero shows nowadays.

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.

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.

Title: Re: New Mega Man Animated Series coming to Television in 2017
Post by: Nexus on May 27, 2016, 12:13:22 PM
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.
Title: Re: New Mega Man Animated Series coming to Television in 2017
Post by: Blue Valkyrie on May 27, 2016, 02:25:14 PM
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

Post by: Phi on May 27, 2016, 08:25:39 PM
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.

Title: Re: New Mega Man Animated Series coming to Television in 2017
Post by: Protoman Blues on May 27, 2016, 09:56:14 PM
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

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.

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

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:

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.

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.

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.

I actually rewatched the Ruby Spears show a month or so ago. And I love it still. Yeah the plots get really out there, but I just have a lot of fun with it. I feel I'm laughing with the show just as much as I'm laughing at it, if that makes sense. It has a plethora of YouTube Poop material, but I feel the show sorta knows how silly it is. How else could Curse of the Lion Men have been made? Plus, the theme song and Scott McNeil are genuinely awesome.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I think its time the fanbase just accepts conclusions to Megaman Legends and ZX are never gonna happen-the market just isn't there beyond the vocal dwindling fanbase.

I'm not sure what it'd take to get that project running again.

some day in a galaxy far far away, Capcom could revive it's methodology of remakes, and remake Legends 1 and 2, and if they sell well, make Legends 3.

will likely never happen, we'd have to wait for Classic and X to get that treatment first
