    Of course leaks are always legit. Now if you excuse me, I’m going back to playing Rayman and Shadow in Smash.

    I covered that in my first post when I made a response for just in case they were using "one of the biggest failures" to mean "lol teh epic fail." Not that I disagree; just kind of thrown off by the wording if that is the intent.

    Essentially my point, yes.
    If you're using creative output as a barometer of success, then... well, obviously, no, it's not "successful," although framing it that way is a bit awkward.  If you're talking about appealing to its target demographic (fans of the games and potential fans of the games), then it was... FAIRLY successful, yes.  It did what it was supposed to do, and nothing more.  The way the OP is worded would have me believe that they're making Sonic X out to be a failure and low point of the series that is universally detested, much like Sonic '06, when it's... er... not.

    Moved this topic to its proper forum.  Sonic-related topics (that aren't Upcoming Games) belong in Green Hills Zone.  Please keep that in mind, thank you.
    As for the topic itself, ignoring how rebooting a series while also removing everything about the series from the series is not really rebooting in any sense of the word, it's also a bit erroneous to call it "one of the biggest failures."  While it's true that the series has generally garnered a negative reputation in retrospect, at the time, fan reception to the series was mixed at worst, and while it wasn't hugely successful, it did do its job of advertising the game and generating new fans and was fairly popular with the kids who jumped onto the bandwagon with the release of Sonic Adventure 2 Battle.  It wasn't a good show, but it absolutely did what it was intended to do.
    Unless you're using the words "biggest failure" to mean "is teh epic failz man" in which case... yeah, fine.  I can't really argue with that.  Because, you know, Sonic X sucks lol

    This might be a slightly controversial answer, but literally every game from 2003 up until 2007, with the possible exception of the Advance and Rush games.  I just don't care for any of the games released during this period narratively or gameplay-wise.  I don't like the way the Chaotix were re-introduced, which influences how they are still characterized in the few appearances they have today.  Don't like how Cream was developed, even though I was really looking forward to her debut when I first saw her in the gallery on Mega Collection, don't like some of the obvious bads like Shadow and Sonic '06.  Generally speaking, even though it was springboarded by one of my favorite games in the series (SA1), even in this post-Sonic 4, post-Sonic Boom, and post-Sonic Forces timeline, these four years are still by and far my most disliked era of Sonic.  If I woke up one morning and forgot everything about that particular era (again minus the exceptions already noted above), I don't feel like I'd have lost anything too important.
    2007 is about the time the series started to shape up for me.  Secret Rings wasn't particularly good, but I don't have any SIGNIFICANT qualms about the story or characters until Shattered Crystal and Rise of Lyric, which are pretty much as non-canon as non-canon can be, and Forces which is... well, less said about that, the better.

    Absolutely not. The problems with Sonic X are more deeply rooted than simply because the story revolved around Chris, as much of an elephant in the room that that was. Sega wants to make a new anime, that's fine; but I shudder to think anyone involved with the creative process of Sonic X could be involved with the series again. No need to acknowledge anything about X again at that point.

    Every time I see that shot of Sonic's surprised face, I'm reminded of that animation style where they'll record live footage of a pair of lips in the process of talking and then superimpose it onto a 2D image. It's that level of uncanny to me.

    Like I mean what?  Did you expect her to say "Actually, Sonic, I only like you for shallow, superficial qualities that I vaguely admire but will quickly discard as my interests develop with age?"

    I actually quite like the idea of romance being explored in Sonic and think it could be an interesting exploration of character.

    I will at least give one positive.  I do quite like that DVD menu track (if that's what it is).  Though it for some reason reminds me more of Sandopolis, Act 2 than it does Zombie Island.

    She was a very talented voice over artist with a huge roster and this is a great loss for animation.  Disney won't be the same for me without her.
