    Aw man....and I used to think SM's design was bit weird.
    Is it just me or some of the Pokemon look inconsistent in their design/style?
    I cannot decide which starter I like better. This is the first time none looks appealing to me...

    I wonder how much Ian would be able to recycle, and how much he can juggle without making IDW into Archie 2.0.
    The FFs and game cast most likely won’t be friends anymore. Will there be a change in dynamic? Can Sally still be a princess? Can Nicole keep her lynx-avatar? Can Antoine and Bunnie still be in love? Will the kingdom and relatives/friends of the FFs be carried over? Will the FFs be entirely new characters at that point? Will fans be happy with that??
    Another concern/question I had was that the FF is a team of 5 with much lore. It's different from wanting Sticks, which is one character with simple lore. I'm not saying they'll "steal" the spotlight, but I feel  it'll be hard to treat them as minor/cameo.
     
    Under spoilers cuz it's more of my idea and not important:

    From what I hear, Level5 is somewhat famous for making smash hit games but terrible in keeping them successful.
    YW may become popular again, but I don't think it'll ever return to whatever formal glory they had.

    I wasn't sure where to put this (hey didn't I do this before?), but while writing down the Q&A for the newest Bumblekast #90 there was one Archie MM question.
    Might was well write it here. Includes the original question and timestamp:

    I mean, yeah. I just feel it's too straightforward in Japanese.
    Idk, I'd prefer if they go a bit more creative, like "cool (like in a chuuni/edgy way)" or "silly" , as they do the high-damage moves. Example:

    Japanese pokemon doesn't use kanji for names and moves. It'll be in hiragana, so もろはのつるぎ (mo-ro-ha no tsu-ru-gi). Which is still under the limit. Though I feel it should be a physical move for it to make sense. Also, there's already a move called もろはのずつき (mo-ro-ha no zu-tsu-ki), "Head Smash" in English.
    I need to mention though. The Japanese name doesn't have to be translatable into English, or vise-versa. There are many moves that have a different name in Japanese and English, for example
    "Mindblown" and ビックリヘッド = "Head Surprise" "Assist" and ねこのて = "Cat's Paw" "Head Charge" and アフロブレイク = "Afro Break" "False Swipe" and みねうち = "to strike with the back of one's sword" (for reference, Final Fantasy translates it as Swordstrike or Bladebash) So whatever silly name Japan comes up with, the English version can still be called Double-edged Sword. Or not, idk what the word limit for the English version is.

    Tbh it's an endless loop of
    Fans: "Can we have [old/obscure/Archie stuff] back in IDW??"
    Ian: "Sorry, but no. Sega says no for all those stuff. But we'll see along the way. This is a brand new comic. For now just enjoy what's there."
    Fans: "...but can we have [basically different thing in the same category]??????"
    And it's NEVER gonna end.

    Eh...I'm sure it will succeed, even if it may be moderate. As long as they don't mess up big time, it's gonna be a harmless movie that is hated by the core fans but indifferent by the majority.
    The fact it looks like any other live-action CG cartoon mascot film guarantees it. I'm sure those unfamiliar/hating Sonic (or one of those people who worship americanization/hollywood-izations) will say "OH! FINALLY IT LOOKS GOOD" because they assume anything live-action with decent enough CG and realism is better than the original cartoon. And like the emoji movie, people will go see it as a joke or to see if it's actually bad.

    I wonder if the design changes is because Sega assumed/were tricked convinced by the production that it would appeal to a broader audience: "Do you think THAT would fit in live-action?? It's going to clash so badly! Do you know what's better? It should be more 'realistic'! It's the trend right now! Many people unfamiliar with these type of games are put off by the cartoony designs! People would love THIS!!  Besides...the more it looks different, the more attention it gets!"
    If it's the game and anything related to the game Sega of Japan would be strict, but since this is more of a spin-off (and a live-action movie, which I'm sure Sega is not so familiar with) perhaps Sega is more flexible and gullible open to ideas.

    So the final anniversary event is going to be Rockman 30th Anniversay Goods Festa.
    The one I'm most interested is the mini-museum/mini-gallery:

    they're going to show various concept art and rough drafts from the entire franchise (so including other series). And while the left looks like the one from the artbook, the right one looks new. I hope they show more unused ideas and concepts from MM11.
    .......sucks it's only in Japan.

    OK, I noticed there's a new Bumblekast up. 4/6 Questions about IDW:
    I don't have time to watch it rn, but I just glanced at the video description and the last question was...uh...pretty aggressive.

    I'm sure the rule was stated in several sentences/a paragraph. There are also several interviews that mention the two worlds. I'm sure they can't keep mistranslating something important like that, especially with this much public attention.
    I mean, if it WAS a mistranslation, wouldn't Ian (or anyone else who's close enough to correct the public) figuring it out by now? Especially Ian, since Sega would want him to follow the rules, and he'd want to clarify as much detail to find loopholes and creative ways to interpret.

    I do like how his legs look like a pair of scissors, but I think there's too much blades here.
    Most of the robot masters are nice and simple, why do they want to add so much?

    I am a bit worried that the mini-hiatus may have turned away some of the audience that liked it. Even if the show is mediocre and I don't give a dmn about it, had their fans. I'm sure some don't know it's back.
    I saw people pointing out Namagem looks a bit like Bass. So I won't be surprised if he was supposed to be a fusion of the two.
    For the new robot master,

    I don't care for MMFC anymore so I'm indifferent to it possibly dying......okay, I am a tiny bit relieved. But it sucks for those that actually loved it.
    But you can't be too sure. I know MMFC is less known/popular, and Sonic Boom isn't a good comparison, but there can be a slight chance it will continue.
    Tbh they could've done a direct adaptation of Megaman Classics with some original fillers (Archie) or with a lot of creative liberties (Megamix). Just, keep/respect the source material, especially in design. With MM11 being released, a lot of people would've checked it out if it had the same design.
    Or, you know, go full original like that pachinko game. Give us Lady Light and two girl sidekicks. Go crazy so no one can compare it to a pre-existing series.

    Are the same people creating the 3D models and creating the code/data/whatev? I'm sure those are two different groups.
    It's not like they go "ok we're all gonna do butt first, then balance"

    Oh. Maaaybe I can watch it then. It would be very helpful if you can make a summary, but I don't want to put you through all that trouble (I still can't believe it's 2 hours?!).
    I heard the rumors first so it's pretty nervous to listen. I am very sad to hear it's the same person.
     
    EDIT: (I hope posting reddit links are ok) I looked up her name and the title of the video and this came up 
    It's a rebuttal so it's mainly criticism toward the video, but they also have a breif summary (idk how accurate) of the video. I probably still need to watch it though...*sigh*
    But I can talk about the comment section. It surprised me it only had agreements/extreme hatred toward SU in general. No discussion, no disagreement, just "GOOD JOB LILY!! YOU TOTALLY MURDERED REBECCA SUGAR!!!!" like those commenting already had negative bias toward the series. Also, Rebecca Sugar? Not the show?
    "I haven't watched SU/stopped watching, and checked this video to know if it's worth trying" wait so you' completely trust one person's opinion???? "shit schedule!" I don't think hiatus aren't SU's fault. They should know that? "human zoo is racist" these are space alien rocks?  "Gemnazis" .........no...just....NO. "[anything about how Rose is crap]" She is supposed to be. characters have complicated stories and flaws. Rebecca even said Rose isn't a "good" person. "they did diamond redemption wrong!!" .....sure they immediately stopped being aggresive but they're still ignorant and doesn't treat Steven as he is. It's not "Steven be friend" and it's over.  It's also the newest episodes too, do they not realize that's what they may focus on in the future???????? Okay I'm not gonna take every single comment so I'll stop. Maybe I'm taking things out of context.
    EDIT EDIT: Ok I learned that she turns off the (dis)likes and deletes comments that disagree with her. Good to know.

    I was going to say "well it's still the beginning..." before remembering Ian's a Sonic veteran. Though I guess working at Archie vs IDW is a different situation.
    I probably asked this before but aren't western comics usually written by multiple writers, or was it one writer per "series"? Also, I only have a very vague idea how comic making works but I imagined the scrip gets reviewed by several people (excluding the company) before getting approved. 
    It feels kinda wrong to call Ian "fan writer" since that will apply to all adaptation writers (though I think I called his Megaman work "official fanfic" before). And he has a close connection with the owners, even if they can be pretty loose in their restriction at times. But Ian does have his flaws.
