It is 20XX, and the world has become incredibly advanced. Radio waves assist in everything having to do with everyday living, from driving cars to cleaning to even cooking! Unfortunately, viruses plague systems, causing occasional chaos. Aliens from the planet FM come chasing after the rebel, War-Rock, come to earth and decide to destroy it.
Ryuusei no Rockman (Rockman of the Shooting Star, or Megaman Star Force) follows Hoshikawa Subaru as he copes with his father's death. Subaru's father had been working on a space station when it exploded, leaving Subaru depressed and introverted. His joy comes from watching radio waves through his father's invention, the Visualizer. One night, Subaru witnesses two FM Aliens fighting and gets caught in the middle. War-Rock, anxious to get away from his eneimies, takes shelter in Subaru's digital armband. As the problem with viruses escalates, Subaru and War-Rock merge to become Rockman to take out the viruses and FM Aliens.
Gah. Subaru is adorable! I love these character designs, I want to be able to draw like this. Subaru is definitely my favorite character. He's not a wonderful person, but he's smart and tries to do what is right. At the same time, he doesn't always get things correct. He's a bit of an emotional guy, especially when it comes to his dad. OH JEEZ, the episode where he finds out more about his dad's passing? I thought I was going to break into tears. He's such a cool character, I love him to death! XD ♥♥♥
War-Rock is pretty cool too. When he protects Subaru from Cygnus Wing later in the series, I felt so happy. War-Rock is such a good guy. I loved when he was in the denpa pet show. XD
AAAHHH!!! Denpa Henkan! I love it! Rockman looks so good! I love how he can change his wave length (I could be slightly off on this) and go between the denpa (sort of like the electric side of things) and the regular worlds. Being in the electric world is really cool, there are these highway-like roads that Rockman can run along at incredible speeds. He can also go through solid objects. Awesome.
STAR FORCE! Later in the series, Subraru gets assistance from the three satellites orbiting earth; Pegasus, Leo, and Dragon. He can use them for an alternate Denpa Henkan, but it drains his energy pretty quickly. This is Rockman Green Dragon.
Ice Pegasus! I really like his expression in this frame too. =3 I don't have a picture of his Leo form, because I didn't get a good shot of it.
The class president of Subaru's class. Kind of annoying, but entertaining. She has a huge crush on Rockman. You know, I think these kids are in second grade. Jeez. Subaru is saving the world, and he's only in second grade. Wow.
War-Rock breaks something that Subaru really wanted and had finally gotten. Subaru figured out a fitting punishment.
Ah, this is right after War-Rock has broken that....thing. I'm not too sure what it's supposed to be... I think they said "Denpa Bouin," but I could be wrong. I have no idea.
Ahhh, Wolf, one of the FM Aliens, leaves his comrades and accidently ends up acting as a little girl's denpa pet. Suuuuper cute two episode mini-arc. Wolf is my favorite of the bad guys. ♥
I highly recommend this series if you have a few minutes here and there. The episodes are only ten minutes long and the opening is pretty fun. There are 39 episodes out and 14 are subbed by DATS. All the episodes can be found on YouTube, and DATS has a fast bot in their irc channel and some direct downloads in their forums.
....now that I've gotten through everything that's out, I need moooore. T_T At least ep39 wasn't a cliffhanger! Just a bit less than a week until the next one!
My icon folder is getting fairly large. I'll post those soon.
