    The ES21/Mega Man connection!

    OMFG! I just found out that Murata-sensei designed Dust Man of Mega Man 4 and Crystal Man of Mega Man 5!

    That is SO cool! Mega Man has always been one of my favorite video game franchises, and...

    Shame to see it end, though I would've wished for some other focuses (thanks to my character prejudices).

    So now that the series is over, how long until MangaHelpers "delists" this forum? :P

    Re: What to do after the end of ES21?

    It's sad to see a good series end.

    But given its popularity here and in Japan, I'm hoping it'll be established as one of the "classics" of the genre that's still read and respected for years to...

    Why do you think the Christmas Bowl came so "quickly"?
