Mega Man's classic design is perfect for animation, he's Astro Boy with bigger boots and a helmet, why did they change it?

I think the design is passable. But I wonder if the story has received adjustments... that's what I had the problem with. The idea of a schoolboy that is a part-time fighting robot hero does not really reflect what I want in a Mega Man series. I'm sure he'll deal with "teenage issues" and have to keep his identity as Mega Man a secret, and all the other tropes that come with that kind of plot.

I remember someone mentioning that he may have been green because the artist(s) based it on the off-colour TV they were playing Megaman on at the time.

To be honest the design itself is okay, it's just that the art-style looks like Subway Surfers and ugh... :/

People didn't like those turtles? I always thought they captured the turtles essence just fine for that show.

This design is better, but still so busy. Why so much dark blue? Why so much neon? Why so Animu?

here's a video about how the original cartoon was supposed to look like.... until the focus group ruined it all :

Mega Man Ruby-Spears Cartoon Sales Pitch [VHS / 1994]

This was amazing, they should have done something like that for the new anime...

I don't expect some of you to understand this but all versions of Mega man were designed to fit into what was cool at the moment of their creation. Have a look at what was happening on the TV when X appeared and you see that he blends perfectly with that, the same goes for EXE/Battle Network, those happened when the Pokémon-look got popular. I mean, the Tron-esque lines are kind of hot at the moment. Even DC comics characters got them.

I still can't believe how spot-on that Ruby Spears pitch is. The odds of getting such an accurate adaptation even considered and make it that far into production feels incredibly miniscule.

I just remembered that there was a Mega Man design made for a cheap smartphone game that I really love (the design, not the game):




If the TV show shows off the same artstyle as the OP it isn't so bad, but the old one has a really nasty combination of an overly simple artstyle with an overly complex character design.
