The fansub group Wolfpack Productions has completed adding English subtitles to all 51 episodes of the Rockman.EXE Axess anime that originally aired in Japan late 2003. Unfortunately, this news is a bit late seeing as how Wolfpack Productions completed subbing the Rockman.EXE Axess series almost two years ago (Finished: 09/07/2012). If you were like me and watched every episode as they aired in Japan but didn't understand Japanese then you probably were only able to barely follow the story. Thanks to the amazing work from the Wolfpack Productions team, you can now follow the adventures of Netto and Rockman through all 51 episodes of the Rockman.EXE Axess story arc.
After looking over each of the episodes I have discovered that the first twenty-three (23) episodes have the timestamp in the upper left hand corner while the remaining twenty-eight (28) are clean rips of the episodes. Overall I am really enjoying the quality of the sub and have started to re-watch the entire series again.
For those unfamiliar with the Rockman.EXE anime series, Rockman.EXE Axess is the second series in the Rockman.EXE saga. The Rockman.EXE Anime saga consists of five series: Rockman.EXE, Rockman.EXE Axess, Rockman.EXE Stream, Rockman.EXE Beast and finally Rockman.EXE Beast+ which all take story elements and characters from the Rockman.EXE video game series. The overall story follows the adventures of Netto Hikari, son of the world-renowned scientist Dr. Yuichiro Hikari, and his NetNavi (Internet Navigator) Rockman.EXE (Rock or Rockman for short). The entire Rockman.EXE anime saga had a total of two-hundred and nine (209) episodes which aired between 2002 and 2006. In addition to the television series, there was a movie produced called Rockman EXE Hikari to Yami no Program (Program of Light and Dark) which premiered March 12, 2005 and went along with the anime series Rockman.EXE Stream. The Rockman.EXE series also got an English adaptation known as MegaMan NT Warrior which was produced by Viz Media and recorded by Ocean Productions. The English adaptation would only follow the story arcs of the first two seasons of Rockman.EXE and Rockman.EXE Axess, completely leaving out the remaining story arcs from Rockman.EXE Stream, Rockman.EXE Beast and Rockman.EXE Beast+.
In addition to subbing the entire Rockman.EXE Axess series, Wolfpack Productions has also subbed all 56 episodes of the original Rockman.EXE series and worked with De Puku to sub all 25 episodes of the Rockman.EXE Beast series. Unfortunately, Wolfpack Productions has only subbed the first episode of Rockman.EXE Stream which is unfortunate for me seeing that the Rockman.EXE Stream series is my favorite. Thankfully though, a group known as Irregular Hunter Productions (IHP) has started working on subbing the rest of the Rockman.EXE Stream episodes. Furthermore, IHP plans to clean up previously released episodes of Rockman.EXE Stream and creating proper releases for the entire series. Currently IHP has episodes 25 through 31 of Rockman.EXE Stream subbed and available to download via BitTorrent on their website.
