Slight Miscalculation

by ForeverRetro
WARNING: Girl love.

Slight Miscalculation is a Mega Man sprite comic released first on DrunkDuck back in February 2008, which has now been moved to SmackJeeves.

Mega Man is a robot who does not have any emotion. He can only emulate human emotions, so he decides that he wants to be converted into 100% flesh and bone, a human. When he goes to Dr. Light, he finds that Roll has been wanting the same thing for some time now so they both get converted together.

During the process, their genders are accidentally switched. Dr. Light cannot explain the strange occurrence, but thinks that it's most likely irreversible. So now Rock and Roll must adapt to human lives that they weren't expecting.

Not sure if there is anybody left that still frequents this website that was a fan of the original Slight Miscalculation. I was actually considering deleting this version, but figured that out of the people who still have this old sprite comic in their SmackJeeves favorites, someone would probably like to be notified that new comics from this series are being made.

First and foremost, I owe an apology to the voice actors that supplied voice lines for free for the Slight Miscalculation animated finale that I never completed. Other sprite comics were doing it, so I figured it'd be cool to do one as well. For the reboot, I'm choosing to stick to the four-panel strip format and not deviate from that format, so that animated "finale" of sorts has been lost to time. Again, sincerest apologies to those who helped me with that. For the record, the new comic does not exist in the same universe as the original Slight Miscalculation or its spin-off, Unexpected Development, and will go on as its own entity.

Never thought I'd go back to making sprite comics, but one day, I was just practicing pixel art on my off-time and ideas started popping into my head, and then more ideas, and then I could visualize a whole story from beginning to end that was internally consistent and it seemed like a shame not to tell that story. So, basically, I'm back for the time-being. This more of a hobby than a legitimate attempt to accrue a huge fanbase or readership - but, if it is something that would interest you after all these years, please, check it out.

Thank you for being fans of my comic.
Four years later... *Is sad this hasn't updated*
Bass, you metal headed coconut brained idiot!
I think Kirby is usually referred to as a guy, so I would assume he's male.

Even if you did gender-bend him, though... would it have made a difference at all, really?
I would like to apologize for the extreme amount of updates. I've been reorganizing some stuff, and as such, I had to "re-upload some of the old pages". But to make up for it - here is some new content. Yes, it's filler. Sorry.
Do you hate me yet? Yeah, so this isn't a new comic page or anything, but at least it's something. I've always wanted to try something in the Battle Network sprite-style, but I didn't want to make a full sprite comic based on Battle Network, so instead you get this brief filler.

Actually, expect more of these in the coming weeks. I kind of like the idea of making a bunch of "what if" filler comics. What if Zero made an appearance in Slight Miscalculation? What if the comic was 8-bit? What if it was done in the style of the Ruby-Spears Mega Man cartoon series? Hmm...
http://slightmiscalculation.smackjeeves.com/comics/741785/002-enter-rock-and-roll/ -- Click here to check out Page 2 (and also Page 1) of Slight Miscalculation, completely remade and re-released.

Hey guys. So, some of you might've been startled by the big banner that says the series is canceled. And, well, the series is still technically canceled, as I am not making any "new" pages, but I've decided to take the "Quite Different" route and remake all of my old pages.

At what point will I stop remaking the pages? I don't know. But, I won't be stopping anytime soon. So, look forward to more stuff.

Oh, and the remade pages will be 8-panels long, which will leave some room for a bit of new material and/or simple filler. XD

-----

Oh, also, when I "update" the original comic, it replaces that original comic. The only reason I re-upload said "remade comic" as a "new page" is because otherwise you guys won't get the alert that there are new pages.

It's kind of hard to explain, but try to understand. Whenever I remake and upload an old comic and replace that old comic, I'm going to delete whatever the "latest remade comic" is at the front of the row and upload the new "latest remade comic" in it's place. So -- basically, don't comment here, or else they'll be deleted when this page gets deleted. Comment on the original page (in the link in the description)... did I explain that alright? :D
Here is the link to the new spin-off series that I am working on behind-the-scenes, with Z-man Warrior. Check it out.

Also, status update on the comic... I'm not particularly motivated to do anything at the moment. I may or may not be releasing something special here in the future though, so keep your eyes on this comic, even if it appears inactive.
Wow, it's been a month already... and I missed the Slight Miscalculation anniversary comic? Sorry, guys. When sprite comics feel like a chore, I don't do them. And when I feel inspired, that's when I make them non-stop. Thanks for sticking around. Let me know what you think of this page.
No comment as of now, but don't let that stop you from commenting on the comic... seriously, I like reading comments.
Hey everyone. Happy 2011! Slight Miscalculation started February 2008. I've been making these comics for almost three years now. And I've been making sprite comics (in general) long before that. What should I do for an "anniversary type comic"?
Sorry for the lack of comics. I've been busy with... well, what I consider to be a lot more important then sprite comics. That doesn't mean I don't care though. I love making sprite comics! ^.^

And sorry I missed the Christmas special... I'll have another "special" filler comic soon to make up for it, maybe.

Can you guess who this new character could be?
You wanted MOAR? Well, you got more.

EDIT: If you want to make a cameo in the Non-Canon Filler Slight Miscalculation Christmas Special. Then be sure to send in your sprites.
Original commentary:
"No comments. I'm a bit tired. The sprites in this comic may seem unclear because spriting is hard sometimes if you want something to look like something but are given a small amount of space to do it so you have to make the pixels the right color and put them in the right spot. Very hard..."
Original commentary:
"No joke in this comic, just introducing Rock's friends as soon as "she" attends high school."
Updated: May 25, 2016

Original commentary:
"Rock took his... her anger out on Roll because she was programmed as a robot to not ever turn against her creator, and for some reason, that programming remains even as a human. So, instead she took it out on her sis- brother. Dang, this is confusing."
Gee, you'd think I'd do something special for my tenth comic, but nope. This is the best I could do back in early-2008. Ah, the memories. I remember trying really hard to make an update schedule, but I kept delaying comic updates anyway. Those were the days...
Original commentary:
"Updating less frequently from now on due to homework and a guideline that states that it's 'preferred if I update only once a day'. I actually delayed this comic due to re-watching the entire Negima! anime on the Internet. Wow, almost ten comics, that's like... double digits."
Original commentary:
"Another update. Rock and Roll get into a fight. You're probably wondering why Rock doesn't understand his sudden chest, well, the only girl Rock knows as far as I can tell in the games, is Roll, and she is pretty much flat-chested. All the human females Mega Man was likely to have rescued in the (in-between) games or whatever, he probably never registered the information of their physical features in his mind or whatever. I dunno, guess I thought it'd be funny."
