A beautifully mindless experience with dashes of Mega-niftin

"Sure, you kids have your fancy-schmancy Megaman: NT Warrior (or Battle Network Rockman.Exe for you darned Japanophiles) with its high-tech computer graphics and its God Almighty budget animation, but when I was a kid, I had the REAL Megaman cartoon to watch. And frankly, I feel you're all deprived.
Y'see, the original Megaman cartoon had in its favor an unidentifiable charm to it, a charm that anime usually lacks. While Megaman: NT Warrior may have a running storyline, the original cartoon had the basic US cartoon premise of "bad guy attacks, good guy smacks bad guy, cue canned laughter, roll credits"; a feature that I feel we should see more of. While I enjoy coherent storytelling, sometimes I just want to sit down and watch something I *know* is stupid. Sometimes I wanna see laughably bad jokes and mindless animated violence. Sometimes I want to see goofy robots get their titanium backsides handed to them while watching the hero make sarcastic comments about just how awesome he really is at doing his job. You certainly won't find THAT in your anime, kiddies.
Sure, it's not exactly always accurate to the games, but who are we to complain? It's not as if the games were literary masterpieces to begin with, so one shouldn't hope for Shakespeare when watching this, or any other cartoon for that matter.
I highly suggest this DVD, people; it's got fair-to-great animation, great voice acting done by the Ocean group, and many, MANY bad jokes that'll make you roll in laughter for the wrong reasons. Also, they made Roll hot. What's there to lose?"
A classic series returns shy of any special features

"This was a series that back in it's debute was in terms of animation style second only to Batman the animated series. This looked really good. Also the clever mix of action and comedy ensured that this would appeal to all audiences.
The story behind this dvd is that Dr. Wily and his robots are consistantly developing plans to conquer the world. Wilys primary three robots are Cutsman, Gutsman, and Protoman. Each episode also features one or more guest robots who assist Wily. Generally its Snakeman or Bombman, but we do get to see characters through game 5 of the series.
One of the greatest aspects of the series was the opening sequence. This alone is easily one of the best seen out there with a catchy tune and lots of action to promise what will be seen.
This dvd features the first half of the entire series and is worth picking up. I am not giving it five stars however due to the fact that there are no special features at all on this dvd. However at a three DVD set with the first half of the series you can't go wrong."

"This is the complete first season of one of the greatest cartoons of all time, for me anyways. All Mega Man fans should have this set. Is this cartoon series entirely in sync with the official Mega Man video game storyline? No, among other things Proto Man is still a villain. Put the differences aside and just enjoy the neverending war between Mega Man and Wily. The episodes serve up a ton of robotic action, and appearances by all your favorite Wily robots.(Look out for Season 2 to get the "Mega X" episode which is awesome)"
