This looks good but I would beg for a Megaman X anime...

Also, I wonder what is released first: This new Mega Man or Mighty?

Man of Action is working on this show? Sold. Some of my favorite shows have come from Man of Action and I'd love to see what they do with Mega Man.

Still looks better than the 90s cartoon.

Let's look at the cycle for these shows:

1. Show is announced.
2. Reaction is mixed at worst.
3. Character designs are revealed.
4. We automatically assume the show will suck on that principal.
5. Show comes out.
6. Everybody loves the show.

Why do I think this will happen? Because it already happened with "Transformers: Animated," "Spectacular Spider-Man," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2012," and "Sonic Boom."

>Man of Action in charge
Not bad.

>That Devienart art style
Could look past that

>average schoolboy robot
... My life as a teenage robot was good?

>Named Aki Light
...WHY? JUST WHY?

>Must keep his identity secret.
... This show blew its "One chance" cover too early.

So in terms of set-up/story it's going the mega-man zx route? Hmm I might actually give this anime a chance. However I'll just be blunt about one thing i'm not a fan of mega man's design.

You and your sarcasm... They said there be no more delays. I look forward to the middle of June.

Aren't like, 2 of those shows dead now? And Sonic Boom still sucks? In comparison though, those looked pretty decent out the box (with the exclusion of Sonic which only had a shadily promoted game as its backing) so it's no surprise they did well.

This...does not even even come close to a good foot forward, it's almost like Inafune and Capcom are in a race to see who can bury their boy robot first.

How can I use sarcasm in the internet? I actually like this design of Megaman. Guess I'm part of the minority

0/10

Just plain horrible, especially when stuff from Pixar is great and if you want to go cheaper, Aikatsu Stars CG is infinitely better than this. They just didn't care.

...how can you even tell? It's an image still that can't really base the quality of animation from. You can base the character design, but you have nothing to go on in regards to how it looks in motion.

I wouldn't think it matters that they've already ended. The point is that they're considered fan favorites now despite having really bad initial reaction on the character designs alone.
