Let's say Capcom decides to bring back Mega Man with a tv series (as part of a ...i dunno, a reboot?). What direction would you want the show to follow. The Original games, the archie comics, or something original? & what network would you hope, would air it, based on the content, the maturity of the show, the quality, & the schedule?

I would want to see it on Netflix, I don't trust Cartoon Network, Nick and Disney are way more respectful to their acquired shows. I don't think Mega Man is the kind of show that would air on Discovery Family the only reason the hub show are on there is because it used to be the hub, I think they would be making any new cartoon shows like those.

If a new Mega Man series was made, I'd be up for it doing its own thing. But, if it were to adapt anything, I'd really want it to adapt the comics.

As for what channel...tough call. All of them has their pros and cons...can't really decide yet.

Thinking about it, Where is the Mighty Number 9 airing/streaming, Capcom may want to avoid that place for a Mega Man show. Actually I keep getting this feeling this Mighty Number 9 stuff might for Capcom to do some kind of move with Mega Man.

The Mighty Number 9 television is still just a concept right now. It's still not 100% certain whether that will happen or not.

If a Mega Man cartoon is ever made, I would personally want it to follow some of the comic's story elements but do it's own thing. In the comics the stories are so short that a show based on them would run out of source material pretty quickly if it was just adapting the comics as they are.

& the German theme song to the Ruby Spears cartoon was better than the one we got.

Well they could do it as animated film/web series thing like Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist. There's are a lot of sight to DVD kids series out there

I'd be content with a Mega Man cartoon in the style of the comic. It would do a better job adapting video game arcs at least due to the amount of action you can get out of twenty minutes of animation as opposed to twenty pages in a comic book.

As for the channel, I don't care as long as it's not butchered as badly as 4Kids did with Mega Man NT Warrior.

4Kids had nothing to do with NT Warrior, it was dubbed by Ocean Productions in Canada,and cutting original music aside, the talent for it was pretty good for the most part. But I think Warner Bros. may have had a larger part in how the dubbing was handled when airing it for Kids WB.

On topic, if they do make a new animated series, I'd like it to be a mix of the original games, the Archie comics, and maybe have hints of the Hitoshi Ariga mangas.

Viz was the driving force behind the NT Warrior anime, as they were the manga and other merchandise.

The new Mega Man show would be called "Rock." It would focus on the pre-Mega Man adventures of Rock as he grows into the hero he needs to be.

Every episode will feature another Pre-Robot Master villain while constantly winking and nudging you with references to every Robot Master.

Dr. Light and Wily will start out as best friends and keep growing farther and farther apart until Wily is killed in and explosion and revived in cloned body then gets his memories wiped and so he'll forget about being beaten by Rock so he can fight Mega Man.

It'll go on for 10 seasons longer than it should and eventually start using other Capcom characters as a crutch to get people watching.

I see what you did there :) .

Hmm... I've definitely thought about what I'd want from a Mega Man cartoon before, and in general while I wouldn't want it to adapt the comics per se (which wouldn't really be feasible at this point anyways), I would like if it took cues from the comic in terms of how to adapt the games, handle the story, and develop the characters. Maybe have the first season or arc adapt Mega Man 1 or use the MM1 Robot Masters as Wily's enforcers that Rock has to fight. The episodes can be relatively standalone but still build up to the eventual final fight with Wily as Mega Man slowly but surely brings down the Robot Masters. Or something like that at least :) .

As for the network, I guess it would depend on what the creators would be going for. If they wanted the cartoon to mainly be a comedy about the Misadventures of Mega Man and other Robot Masters, with a few action moments, then Cartoon Network could work like it does for Boom. Considering Disney doesn't own Mega Man, I doubt it would do well on XD but Nickelodeon might work... if it proved popular at least, and Nick treated it well.

So, "Rock" would be about a young Bad Box Art Mega Man?

How do robot masters work in the Bad Box Art world anyway? I think Wily is cannon in his world but are the robot masters, Robots, Cyborgs, Cyber Mutants? (Gotta lobe the 80s/90s) or crazy guys in costumes?

"Humanoids," robot-like beings created by the wrongly-performed experiments by Dr. Wily on human beings.
