MegaMan is returning to TV! Japanese company Dentsu Entertainment will produce the new MegaMan animated series. Man of Action Entertainment will help write and produce the series. The studio is famous for producing Ben 10, Ultimate Spider Man and Marvel’s Avengers Assemble! Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau and Steven T. Seagle will write and produce 26 episodes for the first season. The television network to host the series has not yet been announced. The show will in 2017 to celebrate the franchise’s 30th anniversary!
The first MegaMan animated series was produced by Ruby Spears in 1994. That series had 27 episodes in its two seasons. The franchise’s last anime series was RockMan.EXE also known as MegaMan NT Warrior. It was a huge success just like the MegaMan Battle Network series. The series had 209 episodes in six seasons.
This is simply fantastic news for the franchise. If the new animated series is a success, then its success can influence Capcom to make new MegaMan games. This is the best news for MegaMan fans in a very long time! I hope the series will also feature ProtoMan, Bass, and King!
