    Western comic is long-running; she WILL have a spotlight eventually, just not now. Ian is a veteran so he should know how these work. I won't complain for now since it's still a year1 introduction phase (yes I know people hate that excuse). I mean, we're still 10? issues in. They're focusing on what can attract attention while giving exposition of the world and stuff.
    I hate suggesting this, but if wasting money is a concern there is the option to stop buying until you know she has a major role. In my case: I can't buy every issue, so if the preview for the newest issue doesn't catch my attention I wait and see a bit of spoiler to decide if I want to buy. Of course this doesn't work for everyone, this works for me cuz I don't mind spoilers (I actually get very stressed if I don't know anything about the story beforehand. Boring, I know) and I'm not a collector.

    Alright, so "World of Light" is called 灯火の星(Touka no Hi, lit. "Star of Light") in Japanese....

    "灯火の星(Tou-ka-no-Hoshi) can be read as 星のカービィ(Hoshi-no-Kirby) backwards *dry laughter* "
    Oh, Sakurai....
     
    (灯 can be read as akari, tou, hi (bi), etc... so 灯火の星--> 星の火灯=Hoshi-no-Ka-bi=Hoshi-no-Kirby=Kirby of the Stars, Japanese title for the Kirby series.)

    Alright, from the IDW sonic thread:
    Again we don't know the decision process.
    I said this earlier, but maybe Nintendo wanted to give a chance to obscure franchises than give another slot for a series that already got represented. Maybe certain characters aren't "iconic" enough, making a brand new set of moves for echos was a pain, or the companies couldn't reach a good agreement for various reasons. Maybe the company's pitch to nintendo was done poorly. Maybe SEGA and other companies are satisfied with one character joining Smash as a guest, which is a big Nintendo-based project. Maybe fan demands and ideas aren't actually that good, and Nintendo would much prefer to choose wacky unexpected characters that are overall fun to play (that is, if you manage to push aside your salt).
    Just because one (1) secondary character from the Sonic series wasn't made playable (like countless other "popular" and "important" characters that fans are equally pissed and rioting about) and stayed as an Assist Trophy doesn't mean they don't care. Smash was originally a "NINTENDO crossover + guests" and not "characters from all companies crossover" so I'd say having or adding music/stages/assist trophy/any appearance is a sign they care.

    I am a bit upset after seeing someone praise the MM:FC cartoon for having female robots and characters, which is nice....by calling Capcom sexist and toxic for not doing the same in MM11. Ah, Tumblr....
    Anyway, related to @Polkadi~♪'s post: I'm sure most Megaman fans know but just in case,  if any of you want to see scans the Production Note this person is posting them:
    ...yeah they're not translated yet, but you can still enjoy the images.

    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.

    Man, they're going all out on those robot designs.
    I like how unique they look. Some of them are different from the past formula, while others keep the traditional look yet still have something unexpected. I'm guessing this was inevitable, since there are so many fan designs nowadays. Some people been saying it's taking traits from X, but I can't really see it. Looks different from the robots in X imo. Looks a bit more like MMBN (I heard the designers worked on the series). Also, maybe it's just me, but the details reminds me of Ariga's style.
     
    I'm really looking forward to the Production Notes. Hopefully they have rejected designs & robot masters on them.

    I sorta said it a while back:
    Basically, FC gave a bad first impression because there isn't enough changes to make it it's own unique series. BN feels like a completely separate reboot, while FC feels like an inaccurate adaptation. BN is a different & new series that only uses the name and SOME detail from classic, similar to the tradition of a blue Rock/Megaman and red Roll in almost every series. The world is different, the mechanics are different, the design is different, the story is different..... Meanwhile, FC claims to be something new while trying to recycle 80% of its source material and shoving "references/memes" down our throats. 
     
    After posting the above post I kept a distance because I understood I wasn't part of the target audience and it may be another TTG or Sonic Boom. I do post some updates/new information to share with you guys, but I haven't watched the cartoon itself (yet) and tried not to be upset over something.

    I mean, if she IS Suna=Roll, what was the point in changing her completely? Everyone else is somewhat similar to their original counterpart. Representation? New kids probably won’t care but it bothers me that Dr. Light himself is white-skinned, made a white-skinned son(s, given Namagem is the same), yet made his one daughter black. Unless she’s actually human and mixed. Or she's a robot based on his dead wife. Or just, something.
    -------------------
    What makes me be sad is that they said something along the line of “this cartoon is based off Classic”. So, an adaptation of Classic? No. A story based on the universe but different characters like X? No. An AU using Classic characters but with a totally different world and story like BN? No.
    The story is basically Classic, the world is silimar to Classic,  the theme is the same as Classic, they even push the nostalgia of Classic via sprite/music, but they redesign/replaced the character/mechanics. If we’re going that far, why not a faithful adaptation? Why treat it a new series??
    Why rename Rock to Aki? Is Rock too silly, despite most of the main cast being music-themed?
    Why is he a generic “regular schoolboy with a secret hero identity”? Do we really need the robot part?
    Why change Roll to a black girl named Suna (not confirmed)? Is Roll’s original design bad?
    Why give Rush a “normal” form? Why does he need to transform too?
    Why change how Megaman’s copy mechanic works? Why make it more time-consuming?
    Why replace Wily with Srt. Night? Why replace the most iconic villain of the series?
     
    Now, when it airs I’m going to try treating it as a totally new series. But I will forever question the decision of the creative staff behind it.

    Ah, that's what was bothering me. She isn't bad, but I couldn't figure out why I wasn't ookay with her as Tangle. 
    All the detail in her clothes and accessories (plus the two-colored patch over here eyes) was a bit too much.

    Haven't read the issue yet, but just reading that panel, I interpret it as Sonic being more objective.
    "an entire planet" sounds less personal and more...statistical? What's the word?? 
    ""You almost detroyed MY/THIS/THAT house" sounds more specific and accusing, while "you almost destroyed A house" sounds like "you are dangerous/capable enough to destroy a single house,"
     
    ....yeah I dunno.
