Back in 2011 there was an amazing anime by the name of Steins; Gate (review). It was a brilliant series exploring the concept of time travel and cause and effect.

The Mega Man series seems to have been silently killed off by Capcom ever since Keiji Inafune left the company back 2010 after working for them for 23 years. It was a bittersweet departure, as it was taken as a sign that one of Capcom's most beloved franchises was done for. The cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3 and Mega Man Universe further signified the end of the Blue Bomber, although Capcom did give him a strange cameo and an awesome one soon after. However, Keiji Inafune is now bringing back the spirit of the Mega Man series with Mighty No. 9, a game that is essentially the Blue Bomber's successor.
