She seems to think, like so many other people, that people are "offended because it made fun of anime fans"
I mean, I don't know, maybe those people exist, but that's not why I thought the trailer was stupid. The last anime I watched was... I think Howl's Moving Castle like 3 years ago? I don't care for anime. It's more the failed attempt at pandering to an audience they don't understand. It's like the Progressive "meme" commercial
. They're trying and failing badly to make jokes, and the anime joke was icing on the cake, especially since Comcept was just asking for money to make an anime not long ago. There's also the surrounding context, where people threw a bunch of money at them, and then they repeatedly made terrible decisions, told everyone they were making a stupid kids show nobody wanted, delayed the game a comedic amount of times, starting begging for more money for a separate game before MN9 was finished, pretended they got funding for that "out of nowhere" from somewhere else, posted a laughably bad "demo" for the new game that was likely thrown together in 5 minutes with premade asses from MN9, then topped it all off with this stupid trailer. Also it looks like a PS2 game.
People just wanted a new Mega Man game, and they've toyed with their fanbase so much that they really didn't put themselves in the position to make a bad trailer like this. It shows that they clearly have no direction, and don't understand their fanbase.
Who knows, the game might still be good, but I'm not preordering it any more. And I don't plan on paying full price for it either. If it turns out to be good, I'll buy it on Steam sale. They don't deserve any positive responses or more money at this point with how terribly mismanaged everything has been surrounding this game.
edit: also, it doesn't matter that Deep Silver made the trailer. It's an official trailer, and Comcept undoubtedly greenlit it for release. They're just as responsible for it.
