Well first thing to come up from the cartoon for the series is the Mega Man design. And all of the information is from Rockman Corner
:"Aimed at kids 6 to 9, as well as parents who grew up playing the video games, the series will follow Mega Man’s newly-introduced alter-ego, Aki Light, a normal, upbeat, schoolboy robot who, when activated, re-forms into a suit of impenetrable armor. Other characters from the games and new characters, including Mega Mini, will also be featured."
"The new animated Mega Man series will follow Aki Light – a normal, upbeat, and above all optimistic young school-aged robot living in Silicon City. He soon learns that deep within his programming are secret protocols that allow him to transform – giving him nanocore armor, a Mega Buster, and the iconic helmet to turn him into a superhero – Mega Man!"
To be perfectly honest I'm a bit indifferent of it. On one hand, it's nice to see something changed for the Classic Mega Man, and the Buster looks pretty nice. But on the hand, it's heavily flawed. All of his colors look too dark, there should be a balance of a darker and lighter blue. If they did that, I wouldn't mind it. There's also a bit too much blue. Even with smaller pieces of him there's still more variety of color with the original Mega Man.
Now for the story bits. I don't mind "Aki" being a robot in school. But the name "Aki" confuses me. Why did they change it? "Rock" wasn't fine enough? And the secret protocol thing is something I really
hope is explained well in the cartoon.
Until then, #UDHFMM
