Mega Man ZX #03 — Scooty Puff Jr.

July 16th, 2011


It went from just being fairly similar this week to an all-out clone.


His name is Night? The antagonist/anti-hero’s name is seriously Night? The angsty guy dressed all in black is named Night? And the episode is named "Crazy Night"? Seriously? How is this show so completely ignorant of what it is? Especially with shots like this? How am I supposed to take him seriously? At least this week had very little focus on Arma and his endless bag of angst. Aside from all the unneeded exposition explaining Night (seriously… Night?) and his crap, I rather liked the way they introduced the rest of the Biometal gang, particularly lazy girl, even if her fighting is wholesale ripped off from HiME’s Kuga, right down to the derringers and ice elemental attacks. It is a little amusing how we went from one rock guy plus a butler in a mecha to suddenly having an entire cabal of the screwballs though, but since it’s better than fighting sky centipedes, I’ll let it pass.

And, uh, there’s not much else to it besides the introduction of three or four new Megamen. It was fairly action packed, especially compared to last week’s episode, so that’s a bonus, and like I said, little weird melodrama from Arma. I would like it if they would stop giving him new powers each week though. We’re up to like… arm cannon, sky surfing, phasing, scarf-o-kinesis… and that’s without even touching on the normal superhuman strength/speed/etc or having an army of maids effectively at his beck and call. If they’re going to introduce one power a week, then they’re barely going to make it through all of them before it’s time for him to put on the big tiara and power up to his super extra frilly magical girl form at the halfway point so they have new toys to sell.


Back to evil centipedes.

    Oh, Sunrise. All it needs now is some homoerotic tension.

  • TOP2NE1 says:

    Been a while since the last Futurama reference.

  • The Deviant says:

    Megaman, K-Rider/masked rider, Code Geass. That’s all i see when I watch this show lol.

  • Yue says:

    I never did thought of this show likened to MEGAMEN. Curses! XD

    I’d rather see this as a modernized Tekkaman show. Hurrrrr! Tch! TEKNOBLASTERS!! [zazazazaza]

  • DmonHiro says:

    Looks like it’s going to be…
    *takes sungalsses off*
    … a long night.


  • Anise_Punter says:

    Are you sure you didn’t cover Twin Angel Kyun Kyun whatever in this show’s place? I’m still so confused.

  • The Phantom says:

    This seems to have elements from many other shows, but so far I’ve liked it, I’d love to see more dark themes mixed in, and more violence, but so far is doing pretty well.

  • Anonymous says:

    How can no one know that the doctor is evil? How dumb are these people?

    • DmonHiro says:

      In anime, nobody ever suspects the doctor, the judge or the teacher, regardless of how evil he looks, talks or acts. He could be wearing a T-Shit that says “I eat babies”, and there could be a thunderclap whenever he walks in a room, and they’d still be clueless.

    Mega Man ZX

    … Oh well, I got tricked (almost) with the tittle of this entry.

    As long as they don’t pull out a Nova Strike….

  • Takebou says:

    Ahhh, there’s no Omega Zero or Weil’s Numbers as a secret bosses!

    Where is the “I am the Messiah!”!!!

  • SeventhSette says:

    He’s going to end up with exactly seven powers. They’re not called The Sacred Seven for nothing, and he has seven symbols on his eye wheel.
