A little while back, I posted some official art from Capcom depicting Mega Man’s female counterpart Roll lying around with a bunch of other versions of the character in a semi-cuddly, maybe-groping manner. The art was sold in Japan on either a mug or a jigsaw puzzle. At the time, I thought the art was either creepy or cute, depending on how you looked at it.
I wonder what all of you think of the art now that Roll has been swapped out for the many forms of Mega Man we’ve seen over the years. Now that you’ve got a male character looking all prone and doe eyed, is this artwork more or less creepy, or more or less cute?
