Megaman 2017 by RadicalRaiju Megaman 2017 by RadicalRaiju
So for those of you who haven't heard about the new upcoming Mega Man cartoon in 2017, here's a link to the details as well as the redesign.
nerdist.com/mega-man-redesigne…
The redesign itself I don't really mind however I CAN'T STAND THE ART STYLE. I know that's kinda mean but it seriously makes me cringe. On top of that, they changed Rocks name to "Aki Light" which in my opinion is pretty darn stupid. Also, he's a schoolboy robot? I dunno man. I've got SUPER mixed feeling about it all. But whatever, enjoy the art n' stuff.

Yeah, there's a new Megaman animated series coming out in 2017 and a lot of things about it don't look so great
But I'm gonna try to stay optimistic about it cause you never know what might happen!

I actually don't mind the design of this Mega Man. Just as long as it stays true to the character and makes it clear that it's still very much Mega Man. I just hope they they stay true to the source material (even though they have already took some questionable directions at this point already).

Yeah i'm on the same page here. 
I feel like they're changing a lot but I can't really complain TOO much cause the show hasn't really come out yet.
Guess We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
However I really don't like the idea of MegaMini. It's kinda creepy.

You'd figure they would produce a more traditional Rockman design considering how  the fans react when someone fucks around with the character *Cough* Street Fight x Tekken Bad box art Megaman. *cough*

I know right!? That was terrible!
And I mean, like I said, the design itself doesn't bother me so much but the fact that they're changing so much of the character. Like changing his name, personality, and back story, kinda throws me off. Even the mega man from other series like X, Battle Network, and ZX all shared similar attributes and characteristic while still being new and fresh! I dunno dude, I just hope they change some stuff before release.

To tell you the truth, I also have mixed feelings about the new cartoon. -3-

First of all, I do mind the redesign. It's a little too dark and they're using too much blue. But since kids are fine with everything, who knows? ^^;
Also the artstyle is seriously scary I mean did you notice those sticklimbs and that oversized buster?? And those eyes remind me of a derpy Ben Tennyson why??!! D:

And well, about them changing Rock's name, I did not like. However, since a friend told me that the change happen might be because people will think his name, 'Rock' refers to the drug, I am not quite sure if I should be angry anymore, noting that in the past, Capcom did change the franchise's name from 'Rockman' to 'Megaman' outside Japan. ^^;
And 'Aki', which also means Autumn in Japanese, maybe has something to do with Rock's want for peace in the games?

And the schoolboy robot concept isn't foreign at all. There's the Dreamwave comic, where Rock goes to to school. ^^;
Also, in Rockman Corner, there's a post about Mega Man having a new companion in the show, called Mega Mini. And the concept behind Mega Mini is really freaky to be honest.

It seriously makes me wonder if they even bothered to put the design/art style through a test audience before releasing it.
I also hope that the drawing was just a little test to show off the design and not the art style of the show itself because dear god that's gonna hurt my eyes. xD

I feel like that's a weak excuse since his name has been Rock since the beginning and hasn't changed in any of the games, comics, or shows. Even the Ruby Spears show kept it! Although the Autumn thing is kinda cool but I just feel like Aki doesn't fit well with Mega Man.

Mega Mini sounds and looks like the scariest companion ever. I just hope Rush doesn't look terrible too.

Hm, I guess it is to keep the people from waiting?
And I hope so too, that the artstyle and story isn't going to end up horribly. ^^;
And I feel quite positive about it too, since Man of Action shows in the past have been great with the artstyle and story.
But are you sure that you are fine with the show's rating? It is for 6 to 9 year olds, after all. ^^;

True, but why did they kept his name (but not the 'Rockman' name) is a little weird. ^^;
But I don't know, I guess I could go with the name Aki, even though it sounded like a girl's name. >.>

Yeah. ^^; I just felt like Mini Mega isn't nescessary, too.
And yes, let's hope they all don't screw up every Mega Man character's designs. ^^;

Yeah Man of Action are typically pretty darn good, but I dunno.

I'm pretty ok with it only because there is a chance that they will "aim" for 6-9 year olds
but still make the show pleasing to an older audience.
There's been a ton of shows that do that and I'm only hoping Man of Action does the same.

Probably ^^ In the past, they have been doing things like that with many of their shows.
Some people expect it having 'Sonic Boom material', too. ^^
