MegaMan NT Warrior Axess, known as Rockman.EXE Axess in Japan, is the second season in the MegaMan NT Warrior anime series. It borrows story elements from Mega Man Battle Network 3 and 4 and uses NetNavis from Mega Man Network Transmission, but has its own original story. It was followed by Rockman.EXE Stream, where the series only aired in Japan from then on. Axess aired in Japan from October 4, 2003 to September 25, 2004 for 51 episodes.

In America, the series aired similarly to the first season: sporadically and out-of-order, running from February 28 through September 10, 2005, before abruptly disappearing after 35 episodes, ending on episode 22 (aired out of order). The series returned three months later, airing another ten episodes (having skipped six episodes throughout its run) and concluding the season at 45 episodes. After this, the dubbed version of the series was cancelled altogether.

Plot

Taking place a few months after MegaMan NT Warrior, Lan Hikari and his friends fight against the mysterious Nebula and the threat of the Dark Chips as well as ShadeMan and his Darkloids as the SciLab attempts to find a way to create Cross Fusion. They are initially unsuccessful until they manage to capture a dimensional area converter from Nebula, and Lan and MegaMan at first are the only ones who can Cross Fuse, though later Chaud Blaze and ProtoMan.EXE gain the ability to Cross Fuse as well, and the two fight the Darkloids in the cyber world and the real world. MegaMan also gains the ability to use Double Soul, which lets MegaMan combine with another Navi gain their powers.

ShadeMan and the Darkloids are the primary antagonists in the anime, with Nebula acting behind the scenes, eventually becoming the main antagonists for the second half of the series. AT the end of the season, Bass and Ms. Yuri allude to a looming threat from outer space, setting the background for Stream.
