Mega Man: Fully Charged, the first animated series for the Blue Bomber since a two-season run from 1994-1995, is now fully available on Cartoon Network’s website. The first two episodes are free for anyone to view; the remaining eight require users to log in with valid credentials to a cable or satellite TV provider.
Cartoon Network gave a sneak preview of episode one, “Throwing Shade Part 1,” two weeks ago. In the series, Aki Light — a “regular, upbeat robot schoolboy,” — has the power to turn into Mega Man. He will take on the diabolical Sgt. Night and his Robot Masters with help from Rush the dog and others. The target demographic is school-age children, but nothing’s stopping older kids and kids-at-heart from tuning in.
Fire Man is the antagonist for the first two episodes, whose summaries say culminates with Mega Man adopting his abilities (naturally) to put him out.
Mega Man: Fully Charged premieres after years of discussion and delay. Plans were first revealed for the show, by Man of Action Entertainment (Ben 10, Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers Assemble) back in 2015. It was originally due to premiere in 2017.
