"I've been a huge fan of Mega Man, since I was a kid. When I was introduced to the Mega Man Battle Network series on the GBA, including the one on Gamecube, I was pretty disappointed by the fact that they turned Mega Man and all those other well known robots in the Mega Man universe, into living software (otherwise known as PETs). Why the hell did they go on doing that ? I was really expecting to see a better looking Mega Man. I didn't expect Mega Man to be dressed in tights. The only armor pieces he wears is his helmet, a chest plate-like thing, and shoulder pads. Sadly, the Mega Man NT Warrior DVD doesn't have the original Japanese language track with subtitles on this DVD. All the episodes on this DVD, as well as the upcoming DVDs, are all edited. It's clear, that this is strictly for kids only ! For the people who'd rather stick with the original Japanese version, stay away from it.Even though they screwed up the look of Mega Man, and turned him into a living computer software (why couldn't they just have the human characters get their own personal robots ?), it's better in Japanese. I have to admit, I kinda like the show...subbed. It's an okay show in my opinion. But editing this show was a huge mistake ! And what's the deal with changing the name of the commands ? Instead of "slot-in", we get "jack-in". And I don't mind the name changes at all. At least they don't sound too corny like most butchered anime (Initial D, Dragon Ball Z, Kinnikuman Saint Seiya, Starblazers, Case Closed). As a matter of fact, every one of the characters were named after the original characters from the American Mega Man series, except for Fire Man who ends up being called Torch Man.In the end, I can only reccomend this DVD to the kids who stuck with the series ever since it first aired on Kids WB. As for the rest of the otaku Rockman.exe fans, I reccomend watching it in Japanese."
Go, MegaMan! ^_^

"The anime series "MegaMan NT Warrior", which is the Japanese series "Rockman.EXE" dubbed into English, is actually very well done, contrary to some unfortunate reviews it gets.
The show features these humanoid artificial intelligence programs named NetNavies (Net Navigators) who live in cyberspace and help out their humans in the real world. Inevitably, there is a sport called "NetBattling" wherein the NetOps have their NetNavies fight each other using computer chips called "BattleChips" that download weapons to the NetNavies.
The two eponymous heroes are a blue-clad NetNavi named MegaMan (almost all of the NetNavies' names end in "Man": GutsMan, ProtoMan, TorchMan, IceMan, etc.), and his operator, an eleven-year-old boy named Lan Hikari. He's a lot like Ash from Pokemon--think rather dense, perpetually hungry, wanting to be the best in his field. He is also always running late, much to the chagrin of his friends.
MegaMan is kind of like Lan's brother in most respects, and he also repeatedly nags at him to get his homework done.
Most of the voice acting is really good (especially for this one character named Chaud, who is unfortunately not featured in the first DVD) and the dialogue is quite clever at times.
I strongly suggest you ignore the anime purists who gripe about the dubbed version of the show, by the way. The show's real audience consists mainly of people who don't even know the show HAD an original version, and probably wouldn't care if they did.
In conclusion, this show is really good, and if you like anime, you'll probably enjoy it quite a lot. I suggest DVD Volume 1 if you don't know anything about the series, and if you do, I suggest DVD Volume 5, because the first episode on there is really, really good.
Also, the DVDs have a Spanish language track. Unfortunately, there aren't any subtitles, but if you watch it in English first, you can probably pick up on what they're saying."
