  1. I'm curious how Sonic X was received in Japan.  The English version is super dumb but I wonder how much of it was 4Kids' fault and if the Japanese version was any better.  Granted the terrible new human characters were still there so I guess it can't be THAT different.

      I tried to watch the JP version, because everyone told me it was so much better.

      They were wrong.

      My friend and I were watching the 4Kids version a few weeks ago, just a few eps selected at random.  Obviously it's a bad show, but like many 4Kids shows it's pretty fun to watch for all the wrong reasons.  

      Also we watched a bunch of Yu Gi Oh beforehand, and comparatively Sonic X is a goddamn masterpiece so I felt like being nicer to it.

      I found the jp version to be slightly better on multiple occasions. Mainly in VA work, cut scenes, and overall music work.

      It's still a pretty bad anime though.

      While X is pretty bad nowadays, when watching it again I could at least see why I liked it as a kid.  For all its terrible qualities it still at least tried to have a bit of stakes and adventure from time to time.  The idea of Sonic having stories with arcs and huge space-faring journeys and whatnot is pretty appealing to kid-me, and I could see that sort of thing working pretty well in the hands of better writers and directors.

      JP is waaay better on an audio front, as well as the lack of censorship not ruining some of the more dramatic moments.

      At it's best, it's a relatively-faithful animated imitation of the games. At it's worst, it's a frustratingly stupid anime about characters completely unrelated to Sonic. 

      As with 06, Chronicles and Chaotix, most of it's original ideas (that is to say the space arc and nothing else) are poorly executed but could be put to good use as plot elements should a different, more talented team put in charge.

      I'd still love to see a full anime Sonic series that doesn't have extra useless humans crowding the spotlight and stealing screentime I could be seeing Eggman during, and it really annoys me because the original pitch for X looked like it would have been exactly that.

      I saw the boat episode a few days ago which is considered to be the best episode and I hated it. As for Sonic X in Japan I heard that the show wasn't really well received there since ya know that area doesn't care for the franchise that much and the only reason why it got a 3rd season was because of it's popularity overseas. Again that's what I heard

      See, in a show with good writing, putting all the characters on a cruise ship for an episode would be great fun.  It's classic character writing - if the personalities are strong enough then you can put em in any random situation and come out with something engaging.  Sonic characters can DEFINITELY work in stuff like that I think, but again, just needs better writing.

      I will say that Sonic in the boat episode is probably the best comedic styling the character has seen. Ever.

      Guy tries to speed launch himself off the thing, like what XD

      The problem is that all the best incarnations of each character are locked halfway across the planet from the people doing the decision making in a box with "Cancelled??" written on it.

    10. Dejimon11


      I want another story driven Sonic show again I think it can work with good writing. Also make it a Netflix original so at least we know it won't get screwed over

      Get Ian Flynn to write it and the guys who made the Avatar shows to do everything else

    12. Dejimon11


      So Ian Flynn + the guys who are currently doing Voltron Legendary Defender = Win? 

    13. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      Uh probably? I never watched Voltron anything

    14. Dejimon11


      A couple folks who worked on TLA and LoK went on to make that show and it is awesome. They also got the same animation studio who did Korra

      Ok then yes

      Except get Trigger specifically for the animation
