"This Anime (Episode 2, to be exact), where Rockman travels from the Game-World to the real world, to learn some cultural differences about Japan, was intended to be a Special Episode for the original Mega Man Cartoon Series by Ruby-Spears, which aired around 1995 in the US.
As it seems, the special was finished before Ruby-Spears decided to redo their whole show with a completely new design, better suited for American audiences.

Thus, not fitting the new style anymore, it never was included in the series. Still, two more episodes about the same story were produced a bit later, this time under the main title "Rockman" (unlike Episode 2, where he's called Mega Man, even in the japanese dub).

It's unknown if these 3 Episodes ever saw an official release, until 2002, when Capcom of Japan decided to finally (re)release them on DVD for Rockman's 15th Anniversary (all featuring a Japanese and English dub, but no subs).

It's unknown if there are any more secret animated works of the original Rockman game-series."

This awesome little OVA puts me in the mind of the great Saturday morning cartoons I grew up on. I spent a good while trying to find this and it was worth the wait. Mega Man is one of the defining figures in not only platform gaming, but video games in general. I love the Mega Man franchise to death, and I love the X series, at least up until X6. His run in anime has been pretty steady given the quality of video game-based anime I've seen, but at the same time, just a tad under-utilized. I really liked the 50 episode tv ...

The Rockman OVA's only issue is that it doesn't last longer.

While it has a very simplistic story (your typical "game character comes into reality and they need to stop the game villain" plot), it's executed in an interesting way. They make it educational for a younger audience without pounding it over your head in a boring way. You might even learn something new about Japan when you watch.

The characters are all likable enough, and there's a lot of nice interactions between them. I thought it was very sweet when Blues complimented Roll's kimono. It has lots of humorous moments as well. Even the decision ...

Megaman or Rockman if you prefer, is a classic gaming icon. He's had multiple game lines and several animated adaptations. This OVA was produced in '93 but didn't come out until 2002. Apparently, it was supposed to be released alongside the '94 cartoon as a special but that fell through. Who knows, maybe they realised the cartoon was terrible and Production Reed just decided they didn't want the association.


The narrative is simple enough. Megaman accidentally falls out of the game world and into our world. Doctor Wily follows and our blue hero has to stop Wily before he threatens the real world. Fortunately, ...
