    I know what you mean. Kinda sucks to hear everyone dump on something we've been waiting most of our lives for.
    Don't worry though. When you're in the theater come February, nothing's gonna take away your excitement.  I'm hyped, no matter how much negative press this gets.

    I’ve been on a big Kingdom Hearts kick, and the recent announcement of KH3's manga adaptation has got me rereading the previous Kingdom Hearts mangas.
    Shiro Amano is an amazing artist, and I particularly love how well he's able to translate the very American Disney characters into his very Japanese art style.
    I especially love his, frankly, adorable take on Pete.




    What’s not to love??

    Anything SEGA does that Nintendon't.
    Headcanon: Blast Processing is the term for when Gamma, Eggman, or Tails-in-mecha hit multiple targets and convert those hits into "points" that keep their machines running and their missions successful.

    Myst got a reaction from BaronGrackle in Can Sega just sort out the Sonic 3 and Knuckles music stuff already?   
    I don't get it. Sonic 3&K was rereleased on Mega Collection with the music intact. There was a DS Port as well that I think had the music untouched. And wasn't there an AtGames Genesis with Sonic & Knuckles on it?

    Amy happened - You could count her multiple times where she was included primarily as a love interest, Sonic CD, Sonic Heroes, if you really wanted to, you could easily stretch this to 4 or 5 of her appearances.
    Elise happened. That is another one.
    Tiara made it way past concept stage.
    and if you really want to get picky, Lah was made in house by SEGA and was a love interest for the Werehog. So there goes another one too.
     
    A bunch got scrapped during concept, but a bunch made it all the way through too. Its an obvious reoccurring theme.

    I'm not the person who moans "It's Sonic movie about his origin, damn it! I don't want this!". I'm all for an origin story. (I'm sure I mentioned it in my previous posts too, maybe it got lost ^_^;) This type of story connects the past with the future. I meant to say - Sonic started as "developed" with not much to add. He still changed over the years, but if we look at the core and reasons why he is like this - we don't see many reasons for why.
    Somebody said - "Sonic is just good and Eggman is just evil, and this status is fine. No need for some past or background" - style.
    I guess we all have our preferences. Somebody is okay with Sonic just being pure good, somebody else would like to see how his path as a hero started. The problem is, no matter how good something is, people will still bash it when it doesn't reflect their vision perfectly.
    I don't know if Dr. Robotnik's official past is original or interesting, but we have it as something to work with.
    The Sonic Bible mentions about Sonic being orphan and raised by animals (I guess by the ones he is saving in games). The question is - How he turned into an orphan? If this movie has Sonic as an orphan, will we see why? It could be interesting. If he lost his parents to injustice, it shows more about his determination to help than just helping for the sake of being a good guy.
    As it was mentioned, the movie has some character's growth moments, so let see how big and relevant to the story they are.

    Sonic isn't 5 years old, man. He's a teenager. 
    Naka already confirmed that Sonic runs from Amy out of shyness, not that he finds her 'icky' (though that scene in Generations implies he simply doesn't care about her)
    That scene in episode 52 of Sonic X pretty much confirms Sonic indeed has feelings for Amy.
    Unleashed gave the player an option to agree to take Amy on a date (though it was never shown) 
    Black Knight's ending had Sonic late for his date with Amy.
    There was a 'love mission' in 06 that gave the player the option to choose Amy.
    Boom also heavily implied Sonic reciprocated Amy's feelings, and of course there was that Q&A on twitter last week that hinted at it as well. I get (very subtle) SonAmy vibes from the IDW comics too.
    I doubt Sonic will EVER marry Amy, or even kiss her (maybe in a daydream by Amy) but to say Sonic has no interest in girls is silly. (Sonic flat out wolf-whistled at Lumina in Sonic Shuffle, and if you want to go outside the japanese canon, there's Sally, Sara and various one-off characters in episodes of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog) 
    Also, Elise says hi.

    Amy is quite literally the only female character Sonic has returned interest in. It was always slight/mild, but it was there. I always read it as one of those "maybe one day when they both have their shit together" things and not something that we'd see in a game though.
    They probably won't definitively end the series, but if they do I could see them throwing that angle a bone without doing anything explict.

    Well if you wanna get super picky & technical about it, I mean yeah, you are right, I'm just saying in regards to the history of the character in general, in game, animation and print form, Sonic has shown interest in the opposite sex plenty of times, regardless of whether or not us Sonic nerds go 'dur not canon'
    Sonic X still happened, the comics still happened, Boom happened, 06 happened, Unleashed still happened. All official products direct from Sega. The Q&A thing last week was on the official verfied Sonic twitter account.
    It's funny Ian would say that given the second issue was titled 'Can love bloom on the battlefield?' very small stuff, but there's been hints in the comic.
    Again, I doubt Sonic & Amy will ever be a 'thing' but she's largely seen as the love interest of the franchise, with hints dropped throughout the series. I think that's really as far as Sonic's love life will go. Hints. But it sure would be nice to have another scene like that one in episode 52 of X.

    I had an idea for something they could do for the marketing campaign. A 'trailer' of sorts announcing the redesign.
    White background. A crew member holds up a clapperboard. 'Sonic movie redesign auditions, take one!' Out walks Danny Devito in a poorly made Sonic costume. 'Gotta go fast!'
    Take 2!
    Out walks Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, speaking in a high pitched voice. 'It's-a me, Ma-' 'No! wrong character!' 'What?' 'This is for the SONIC THE HEDGEHOG movie' Dwayne pauses. '..Never heard of it.'
    Cut!
    Now Ryan Reynolds is standing there, sipping a coffee. 'Wow, I'm surprised. I didn't think we'd be doing a sequel so quickly.' Sips cup. 'No, this is for Sonic!' Reynolds pauses with a grimace. '..The Hedgehog?' 'Yes!' '..That's it, i'm firing my agent.' Reynolds drops the cup and walks off.
    Danny Devito again. 'I'm waiiiiting!'
    Montage of scenes from the trailer, only this time Sonic is blurred out. Announcer says 'Get ready for a whole new hedgehog.' Title logo, followed by 'February 2020' 
    I think something silly and self depricating would be funny and endear audiences to the film, while still keeping the movie fresh in the public's mind.

    Myst reacted to Sega DogTagz in Sonic and Amy's marriage in final Sonic game (future Sonic series)   
    And yet, from his inception, Sonic was originally designed to have a girlfriend. Madonna is a thing in the concept art.
    Then, enter Amy Rose. A blatantly obvious fan-girl who brought the idea of romance into the forefront. Couple that with Tiara a few years after that, who has been on the record confirmed to be designed as a love interest for Sonic. Enter Elise, obvious love interest. Enter Blaze, shiptease ahoy.
    That "Girls are icky" approach doesn't even hold up in the face of the games, let alone the franchise at large. Sonic may try to always play it cool, and avoid mushy mellowdrama, but lets not pretend like he's afraid of catching cooties or something. The dude has, and has always intended to be, a mingler with the female cast. You can't ignore generations worth of intention that constantly pair Sonic up with one of his female friends.

    Myst reacted to Psycho_Jack in How would you rewrite Sonic X?   
    I would definitely not remove the humans or Chris. I would still make him the human lead but not the protagonist as it was in the show, I'd give Helen a bigger focus, but still not a protagonist. I would have removed Ella and Tanaka from the main cast, there were too many regular humans, I would have made them guest, but obviously Chris can't live alone with his grandpa, but I would not have had him be spoiled and rich, but definitely more likeable, and not so selfish, but with flaws (not sure which flaws) and not a perfect kid.
    I would remove the adaptations because Chris added nothing in SA1 and replaced Amy and Rouge's roles in SA2, I never liked that. But adaptations are boring so I would have done different game-centric plots in season 2.
    And, as for season 3, I would have had more varied plots, I like how it's more serious, less filler and slice of life, but everyone is more competent including Chris himself, but honestly all the plots in every episode were "fight the Metarex" as it has been pointed out, more adventures and less fighting in space ships. The rest was good and season 3 is probably my favorite of the bunch, even Cream was useful.

    Myst reacted to DabigRG in How would you rewrite Sonic X?   
    I was gonna say I wouldn't, but then a legitimate idea or two popped into mind:
    Have Chris be more definitively lonely, with only Danny extending out a friendly hand early on. As the show goes on and the actions of the Sonic's World-ers  becomes more prevalent, have Francis, Helen, his parents, and eventually [that one kid from the SA2 adaptation] gradually associate with him more. Gradually downplay his presence as Sonic & his friends become more well-known, at least in episodes that don't have him play a truly important role in the plot. Also, make him seem a little less hyperfocused on Sonic by giving him other interests and maybe reducing the frequency of such scenes until it becomes relevant in Season 2. Give Sonic a little bit of development regarding his tendency to seemingly avoid his friends, possibly by comparing him to Knuckles at least once. Have Amy get some spotlight outside of her feelings for Sonic and her anger issues in Season 1, perhaps culminating in an episode where she moves out into her own apartment. Give Tails something loosely similar to Amy, except introducing the concept of him owning his own personal Workshop.(Was Mystic Ruins a thing before the SA1 adaptation?) Maybe have Cream properly develop a small, occasionally shaky friendship with Chris in a few episodes. Give Bokkun just a little more of a background, given that he seemingly came out of nowhere and has a somewhat confusing/inconsistent species. Give some small amount of explanation for where Emerl came from. As I recall, he's just sorta there in the Sonic Battle adaptation with little to no connection to Eggman outside of Bokkun recruiting him for a Jailbreak. I might throw out some more ideas later, but these are the big ones.

    Myst reacted to Silvereyes in Your Unanswered Sonic Questions   
    I think it is a valid read of it. Personally, I think they should of just had one of the parents be dead and the other one absent, and have Chris still reeling off losing one parent. It just felt a bit silly having Chris being sad when he was in a mega rich family and both his parents being absent half the time but still both clearly loving him.
    Not to say depression isn't possible under those circumstances, but you need very good writing to pull of that kind of subtlety, and I don't think the Sonic X writers had that. (Although mind you, if they did kill a parent off, good chance 4Kids would of censored that, with them either on a permanent vacaction, divorced, or currently exiled in the Shadow Realm.)

    Myst reacted to Ultimate in What are your favorite Sonic Comic issues?   
    From Archie, I like Archie Sonic 171: I Am. The one with Shadow going into the CD to talk with Maria and Gerald, and where we get to see more of NICOLE's corporal form.
    Outside of that, I don't really have specific issue numbers, but certain arcs I really loved. Spark of Life, Shadow Fall, and the Silver Age are up there. Honestly, I'm also a big fan of anything with Anti-Mobius. Treasure Team Tango is up there, too...I liked the interactions between this unlikely set of characters. Haha, it's so hard to pick.
    From IDW, I'm really falling in love with this current Zombots arc. I really love that Eggman's become a threatening presence again. I missed that a lot. The garden story in the annual with Silver and Blaze is really heartfelt and adorable, too. But we'll have to see more of the comic before I can pick a favorite, I think...!
