Do you remember when Mega Man Battle Network was the biggest thing going on in the world of Mega Man? Do you fondly remember when the Rockman.EXE anime, known as Mega Man NT Warrior in the west, had 4.5 different series, airing year-round, week to week? Well, thanks to Nat400 and his team, you can revisit that time with the long awaited fan dub of Rockman.EXE: The Program of Light and Dark!
If you're going to be attending this year's MomoCon, which is being held from March 8th to 10th in Atlanta, Georgia, then you may want to check out Scott Laney's Mega Man Fan Panel, which will be in its second year. According to Scott, the focus is on the community the franchise has helped to foster, and will look at various media such as fan music, fan dubs like the one for Rockman.EXE, and fan games such as "Mega Man X Corrupted," and more. He'll also have some goods on hand to give away, such as copies of the Mega Man Robot Master Field Guide from UDON (excellent choice, if we may say).
We recently brought you word of a fan-dub effort to localize the Rockman.EXE movie, "The Program of Light and Dark," and needless to say, some of you were rather critical of what has been shown so far (seen above).
Think you can do better? Then now's your chance; as it turns out, they're still looking to fill roles. Read on to see what's available and what you need to do!

For further details on line reading for the auditions and NT Warrior samples, check out the Voice Acting Club forums, or you can contact Nat400 with any questions at megamandownload (at) gmail (dot) com. Nat400 adds that "I just need more voices, and if we do well on this movie I will make fandubs for Stream, Beast, Beast+, Star Force, and Tribe eps."
We recently received word that an English fan dub of the Japanese animated movie, Rockman.EXE: The Program of Light and Dark, is underway. Headed up by Nat400, details are few except to say that the full movie is coming "soon." In the meantime, you can view the teaser above.
Though Viz localized the first three seasons of the Rockman.EXE cartoon as MegaMan NT Warrior and MegaMan NT Warrior Axess, the subsequent seasons (Beast +, Beast, and Stream, which the film was tied into) never saw their way to this side of the ocean, while only the pre-Axess seasons were released on DVD. That said, it seems that the dubbers are following in the spirit of the voice casting for the NT Warrior series (including an older Lan), rather than the Japanese version.
For those unfamiliar with the premise of the film, it involves the return of Dr. Regal with a new threat to the online world, Nebula Gray. Joined by Raika and Chaud, Lan uses CrossFusion to infiltrate a Netopian military installation to put an end to the menace, only to find that neither he nor the newly-returned Bass aren't strong enough to handle this alone.
