      To be expected considering the advances the LGBT community has been making lately.

      Though it won't be without controversy.

      depends on how they're written

      it will eventually. give it 2-3 decades, I'm confident.

      DECADES? Hell to the no :(

    14. Chaos Warp

      Gotta wait for all the old sexist neckbeards to die of old age, sadly

    15. SuperLink

      SuperLink

      well considering as little as 2 decades ago showing homosexuality on tv at all was still really ooer I think that's pretty quick especially considering how deep-rooted ideologies within media can be and how long it takes to uproot them. Just my onion tho.

    16. SuperLink

      SuperLink

      and yeah to put it more lightly the old traditional bigwig folk need to leave their places of power in the media before any real changes can be made

  2. *spends all of Birth by Sleep at Yen Sids tower* "MASTER YEN SIDE LIVES HERE?!" -Donald, KH2

    1. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      I blame Namine

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      Yeah that's what I do.

    3. KHCast

      KHCast

      Also, same deal for them not recognizing Terra or his Keyblae, even when he says Aqua and Ven's name

    4. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Or Sora apparently forgetting he already met Sephiroth

    5. KHCast

      KHCast

      I consider that pieceof KH1 uncannon honestly

    6. Komodin

      Komodin

      It's always Namine's fault.

    7. KHCast

      KHCast

      Though then the Final Mix came..

    8. DBZHedgy

      DBZHedgy

      But Namine restored their memories after Chain of Memories and the beginning of KH2

    9. T-Min

      T-Min

      Maybe she missed a few by accident? :U

      Also, do Donald and Goofy actually meet Terra?

    10. KHCast

      KHCast

      It's not like Namine couldn't make a mistake or toss a few non-important ones every now and then

    11. T-Min

      T-Min

      Or do they see him in his Keyblade Armor, at least?

    12. KHCast

      KHCast

      Donald and Goofy met Terra during some point iirc right?

    13. KHCast

      KHCast

      Plus he said Aqua and Ven's name, you'd think that would raise some interest from them

    14. DBZHedgy

      DBZHedgy

      Then again, that actually makes plenty of sense because pretty much everyone seems to remember the going-ons of Birth By Sleep (Mickey, Xibar/Braig, etc.) except Donald, Goofy, and Sora)

    15. KHCast

      KHCast

      Well Sora eventually remembers Aqua and Terra

  3. Classic Sonic with green eyes, or modern Sonic with black eyes?

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Classic green eyes, no contest. I do belive that the irises can adjusted in a varity of ways to make sure it doesn't look too intrusive on his pupils.

    2. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      I prefer Adventure Sonic with no eyes

      Image result for sonic with no eyes

      Stop punching modern Sonic!

    4. Monkey Destruction Switch
    5. Ashwalking Bat

      Ashwalking Bat

      I am not one to indulge in the eyes debate, but classic Sonic with green eyes wouldn't be too horrible. Besides, seeing modern Sonic with black eyes just wouldn't fit well.

    6. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Get it? Black eyes? Punching?

      ..............................................

      Sorry...

      Somehow, seeing Classic with Green and Modern with Black seems strange to me. I'm used to how things are now. I fear change...

    7. Ashwalking Bat

      Ashwalking Bat

      Is it bad that Dan's post is now making me think about someone coming up to modern Sonic and yelling 'FUCK YOU SONIC!', then proceeding to punch his face?

    8. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      Classic sonic with green eyes wouldn't look too...

      5aec96a0868bf_download(35).jpg.3297e40b153fe5e696383ad8346d8b53.jpg

      Uh....

    9. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      I think it depends on the shade of green. Bright emerald green, no but a duller green wouldn't mind on Classic. After all he was also brown eyed during the Sonic the Screensaver era.

      Also there was a brief moment where Modern Sonic with black eyes did actually exist in a game:

      PR2SwP0.png

    10. Big Panda
    11. Biggs

      Biggs

      Toei/Hesse Classic Sonic with green eyes is perfection 

    12. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Probably closest we have to modern with black eyes:

      Modern with black 

    14. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      It's fine if Modern Sonic has black eyes on occaision. 

      Most cartoon characters get more detailed, colored eyes during closeups or eye popping takes, and less detailed eyes when they're shunken or far from the camera.

    15. Kiah

      Kiah

      Classic Sonic with green eyes if I had to choose between the two. I think the green complements Sonic very well.

      When first saw Modern Sonic (had no idea this was even a thing) I thought it was an error seeing the green eyes but it was one that I really liked. Glad it was actually a thing ?

  4. Here’s another legitimate reason from the anime producers: “Ash can’t ever win a league. If that happened, the series would end.”

    ...or he’d keep travelling anyway, because winning a league tournement shouldn’t be the be-all, end-all of a Pokemon journey.

    ...or, god forbid, we move on to a new protagonist.

    1. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Not like we have a game series that does that-oh wait.

      Yeah, the insistence of sticking with Ash gets all the more mind boggling as the series goes on.

      Maybe if they at least aged him......

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      But then he’d somehow, spontaneously stop being relatable to the target audience.

      I mean, how the hell is a 10-year-old supposed to relate to *gasp* AN 11-YEAR-OLD??

    3. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      It's so weird, especially in the era where there's new stuff introduced permanently like the Fairy Type, Mega Evolutions or Z Moves. Just because you win something big once doesn't mean you're done learning. And like you said, winning a league doesn't make you a Master in everything the world has to offer and even much less so just...want to quit.

      The reasoning is so weird, man.

    4. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      I think that letting him grow up alongside his fanbase would just make him even more relatable as time goes on.

    5. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      You know, these anime producers made me sure to never watch the anime.

    6. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      Sun and Moon at least has got the right idea of downplaying the focus on his limbo of a goal in favour of, you know, giving him a personality.

    7. Wraith

      Wraith

      Ash is marketable as are some of the other mainstay characters. 

      It's also just not meant to be a series that retains an aging audience. They're almost certainly counting on older fans becoming uninterested and cycling out because they aren't the target audience. 

    8. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      The mainstays are fine, it's just that, with most of the same writing team working on it since the beginning, you can tell they're getting a bit bored of them. I mean they've tried to give Ash and Team Rocket new life in Sun and Moon, and it's worked in terms of new material, but whenever it inevitably comes back to them doing their old shtick again things become really stale fast.

    9. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      @Wraith

      You know, that statement is funny because it contradicts the last thing said about the anime a couple statuses ago.

      About why Misty isn't coming back because it would allow more eye-candy to join the show as new female companions.

      That's certainly not something younger fans would care for, since girls are "cooties" and shit to them. While it's the older people who they believe have grown uninterested who would ever have interest in the girl characters.

      So the producers have no idea what they're doing.

    10. Wraith

      Wraith

      Ignoring the fact that you're taking what amounts to a gross, shitty joke seriously, you're saying it's weird for the younger people to be interested in the preteen girl characters but not the older fans

      I beg some of you to think before trying to post a woke paragraph

    11. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      I wasn't trying to be woke or whatever, I'm just saying it's sorta weird.

      I volunteer at a children's ministry at church, and as such I found myself interacting with kids now and again. Most talk about Fortnite, but some are pretty big Pokemon fans. None really showed any interest in the female characters, or even pulled the cooties card.

      Hence why I put it into question.

      I'm not saying no kid in the world has any interest in them, maybe it's something tailored to the Japanese youth than the American ones, just something I'm speaking about in experience.

    12. Wraith

      Wraith

      My point was more that it's weird to think they're trying to attract older fans with the female characters specifically.

      I don't think they're really trying to attract older fans at all aside from a passing event or two to get some buzz online. They know exactly what they're doing. 

    13. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Perhaps. Guess I see too much anime 'round town where that tactic is used extensively. And plus I keep running into those parts of the fandom.

      So perhaps perception was warped.

    14. KHCast

      KHCast

      Yugi was marketable, and they moved on and are doing fine, so it’s stupid to believe they couldn’t create new still marketable characters to take the main character mantle. It’s all the more a dick tease since the sidekicks gets replaced with new characters no problem.

    15. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      I always make a joke that Pokemon is like Doctor Who with the same character with rotating partners.

      difference is, the doctor still changes to basically entirely different people so even thats no excuse

  5. Honestly, if there ever had to be an in-canon explanation for Sonic’s eye colour change, I’d want to be like what StC did. Their take on it was genius and made so much sense.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      And how did it explain Tails, Knuckles and Amy's eyes changing colour? It's one of those things where am explanation so should never be attempted, because anything comes off as unnecessary and forced.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Agreed. The only times Tails canonically used the Emeralds was in Heroes, but that was after the eye change. He otherwise used them power to his tech. 

      And why are Knuckles eye's purple? He guards the Master Emerald, not the Master Amethyst.

      Then there's Amy, who never went super at all. (Fighters doesn't count)

    3. Celestia

      Celestia

      Incidentally the other three all got coloured eyes in the SA1 arc without an explanation.

      ...Though they weren't the correct colours. I assume the five seconds of footage or w/e SEGA showed to them only had Sonic, Eggman (hence Robotnik switching to the new outfit), the ancient echidnas, and I...guess Chaos? (I don't understand how his StC design happened.)

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Something about the lingering effects of the Chaos Emeralds causing him to permanently retain the green eyes of Super Sonic ala Sonic 3. Or maybe it had something to do with Chaos? I don't quite remember. I just know that it was contrived.

    5. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Blue Blood Sonic got trapped in Chaos’ body in their first encounter, and the prolonged exposure to the chaos energy in his body made his eyes go green.

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      That's contrived.

    7. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Celestia I can’t remember the exact eye colours in the arc, but to this day StCO portray Tails and Amy as brown-eyed.

    8. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Blue Blood I don’t see how. Especially compared to Archie’s take on it.

    9. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I don't know what Archie's take on it was, or what it has to do with whether or not the StC explanation was contrived.

      Sonic's eyes changed colour because he was exposed to Chaos? His entire designed changed. It didn't need any explanation. It's the kind of thing that has no story relevance. 

    10. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      It was really the only aspect of the redesign StC acknowledged. He stayed the same height, and his shoes didn’t change.

      Archie’s version of it, in which Sonic running around the globe with a super emerald on his back not only caused him to grow taller and get green eyes but also magically added buckles to his shoes (this is straight up acknowledged in-universe btw) was just stupid.

    11. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Archies version is stupid. But it literally has no bearing on the StC version. 

    12. Celestia

      Celestia

      I agree they don't need to explain it and that it's even better off that way, but I imagine that's why this status started with "if there had to be an explanation." XP

    13. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Well, I just don’t really understand what was so contrived about it.

    14. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Explaining it in any way is contrived.

    15. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      My headcanon has always been that the more Sonic has been exposing himself to the chaos emeralds, the more the "super" traits have rubbed off on him in his normal form. Eye color, extra moves, chaos powers, afterimage/chaos energy trails, etc. Doesnt hurt that it fits the anime-esque superpower angle the series leans towards either.

  8. I'm not proud of this, but I once passed over somebody who was a transsexual. To this day I dunno if it was that or just the fact I didn't find him particularly attractive in the physical department. All the same, it does make me terrified that I may have some kind of psuedo transphobia about me or something...

    1. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      For the record, I'm totally supportive of transsexual people. But I still feel bad in that I'm acting toward them as if they're *not* the gender they want to be, even though that's how they deserve to be treated.

    2. Jix Hedgehog

      Jix Hedgehog

      passed over?

    3. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Well, is a person in the wrong if they don't find overly muscular or hairy people attractive? People have tastes. While trans people deserve plenty of respect, it's not unreasonable to not find someone attractive anymore if they have a sex change. The fact is the procedure is imperfect and they're not 100% their new sex. Most people aren't attracted to all sexes, so they can't really be faulted if a transsexual person wouldn't be attractive.

    4. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      At the end of the day, despite all the hooplah about true love and such... the fact is most people base their ability to love on a person's biological sex. The ability to love a person regardless of sex is not mainstream. The most we can ask is that people are respected for their sexual preference and identity.

    5. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      On a dating app, I had a transexual guy contact me, I talked to him for a bit, he asked if it was a problem that he was transexual, I dodged the question like crazy, talking about interests and stuff, and it kinda just fizzled out.

    6. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Yeah, it would be kind of awkward, I'd imagine. But, any rational person should expect that sort of reaction. I will treat a transgender or transsexual person the same as anyone else. However, just as I won't find a regular woman attractive, I couldn't find a transwoman attractive either. It's just a sad fact about what my brain has decided I like and don't like.

    7. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Ogilive: that's what bothers me though. They deserve to be treated as the sex they've chosen to be, but not being into them because they where biologically a different sex contridicting that idea.

    8. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      So...your saying it's perfectly normal/understandable to like men but get turned off by transmen...?

    9. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      The mind is inherently closeminded about sexual relations, sadly. Even the best procedures are still imperfect. Perhaps when the sex change process can do the job perfectly, the issue would go away. I'd be open to dating a transman who I couldn't distinguish from a cisman.

    10. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Unfortunately, until that day comes, my brain is going to register, "this person was once a woman" and it's going to make me feel anxious about a relationship. Being bisexual would really rock because then it wouldn't matter to me.

    11. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      And yes, that's what I'm saying in a nutshell! While I'm sure a lot of trans people are saddened by that, I would hope they'd understand; current technology doesn't allow a perfect transition.

    12. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      As a somewhat similar example... I'm overweight. A lot of people don't find that attractive. I'm not going to hold it against them.

    13. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      I still feel greatly sad for them if that's the case.

    14. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Oh, it is sad. :( I really wish it didn't make a difference to me. Unfortunately, it does. As I imagine it would for most people.

      I thought Fleetway Sonic had a pretty interesting past, what with his being brown and having more realistic quills originally.

    2. RosaRosaRosalina

      RosaRosaRosalina

      yeah, fleetway's also a pretty good contender for sonic's backstory, boom sonic's also a pretty good one, i admire its difference

    5. Big Panda

      Boom Sonic has a backstory?

    6. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Could you have asked a harder question? I mean, GOD! D:

      Archie Post-Reboot has some of my most favorite backstories for all of the characters. Even the Egg Bosses! I don't think I can decide. D:

    7. FriendBot

      FriendBot

      There's really no need for a backstory for most of the characters, Shadow and a couple of others I can deal with but Sonic himself doesn't need a backstory.

    8. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      I was talking about backstories for Sonic himself, not backstories in general, but okay P;

    9. FriendBot

      FriendBot

      Yeah, I don't need to know Sonic's backstory. There's no need.

    10. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      OH, for Sonic?

      Then definitely Archie's. That's easy.

    11. Big Panda

      For the love of god that too

  11. You know, I hope Nintendo decides to do a 3DS successor, if only because there needs to be a cheaper alternative to the Switch out there.

    1. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Does there really, though? I don't see any kind of point in a different system or handheld from the Switch and we already know that a cheaper model for the Switch will be out probably sometime next year and a stronger model will likely be out as well, so the main model will probably go down in price. Honestly, I don't think it's the system that needs to drop in price, but it's controllers and peripherals.

      Now personally, I wish the Switch had been backwards compatible to 3DS games like I hoped for before it came out so a lot fo those games could've been enjoyed on stronger hardware and on the big screen instead of dying with the handheld after the Switch overshadowed it.

    2. Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      What would a 3DS successor even do that the Switch can't do a billion times more efficiently?

    3. Wraith

      Wraith

      There will be a lightweight Switch out soon that will fill this niche.

    4. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      I was thinking more in terms of the games than the system itself.

      Switch games are often a hell of a lot more expensive than 3DS games were, and are still more expensive than other consoles; if a game is multi-platform, the Switch version will always be more expensive than their PS4 or XBONE counterparts.

    5. Wraith

      Wraith

      I agree that that's a huge issue but Nintendo isn't going to change anything there as long as people continue to buy the games at ridiculous prices. 

    6. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      I'm sorry, what?? I haven't bought a single multiplat game that was more expensive on the Switch than it was on the others. They're usually the same price of the Switch ones are a little cheaper in my area with one single exception. Since when was this a thing? (Not that it surprises me, considering Nintendo's greed)

    7. Ferno

      Ferno

      I'm just salty that we never got an HD dual screen nintendo handheld with 3D. ..come to think of it such a device probably would've eclipsed the price of the Switch..

      but I still wanted it to happen

    8. Wraith

      Wraith

      It's mostly a thing for older ports rather than new releases. An example is how the Resident Evil games are each 20 dollars more on the Switch than they are on other platforms.

    9. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Using TSR as an example; at GAME in the UK, the Switch version costs £5 more than the other two.

      Oh, and that Sonic Mania/Forces bundle? £34.99 on PS4, £49.99 on Switch.

    10. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      Yeah, in the UK at least, new Switch games are often around £5-£10 more expensive than their Xbox/PS4 counterparts.

      I think used multiplatform games generally have less of a price difference between consoles, though.

    11. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      It's because of the manufactoring costs of the cartridges, since unlike blue-rays and DVDs, the demands on the market is way less for general production.

    12. JezMM

      JezMM

      Honestly the biggest factor for me as to whether we need another 3DS instead of focusing on the Switch, is "can you make a Switch that fits into your pocket". The Switch is still pretty bulky to use for on-the-spot gaming (I don't ever see a kid wandering around Switch in hands like I do with a 3DS or parents' phone), though there is something to be said for phones rapidly eating that niché.

    13. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Must just be a UK thing then, I guess.

      I fully agree with you by the way, @Ferno

      @JezMM I'm lucky in that I'm always walking around with one of many leather jackets on all year round that each have large pockets for me to slide my Switch right into while still in it's special grip with 5 extra game slots on the top of it so I can change cartridges at any time. If not for that, I'd either have to try in stuff it in my large yet already full pants pockets or keep a backpack around with me. (Which I already do use for work and playing the Switch on break, actually)

      I think the only reason I'm really used to finding out ways to bring the Switch around is because I had a Game Gear growing up, so the Switch is nothing in comparison to that thing.

    14. Ferno

      Ferno

      Tbh when I think about it the switch isn't much larger than a 3DS XL if you take the joycons off and put them in separate pockets (if your pockets are large enough to fit the switch in without joycons or you wear cargo pants etc.) But part of me still has paranoia about dust getting in the Switch's heat vent/ fan or something else happening to it if not in a case and/or in a bag when on the go vs a Gameboy/DS/3ds handheld

  16. Friendly reminder that the actual, legitimate reason the Pokemon anime producers gave for switching out the female protagonists each series is “to give male viewers new eyecandy”.

    9. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      The female characters also seem to be getting increasingly out of focus as things go along. I mean Lillie's okay but she's getting the bare minimum considering her games counterpart, and none of the female protagonists have really had battles since BW ('battle' not equivalent to 'quick one sided beating against Team Rocket or some jobber').

    10. Ferno

      Ferno

      I've been wishing for higher age ranges across the board for anime in general for years now. Its always annoying when I wanna draw fanart of a really great design that looks like they're in their 20s but then I google/wiki them and its like lol nope they're like 15 then I'm like lol no.

    11. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      Well SM did add young adults to the recurring cast.

    12. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      I guess Kiawe is a more "fanservice type" male... He is shirtless and muscular so I guess that's the thing.

       

      ...but is Kiawe an young adult or an 11 year old too?

      https://m.bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Kiawe

      Not even Bulbapedia knows lmao

      We never know with anime....

    13. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      The Sun and Moon protagonists are at least a little more ambiguous if you want to go by their estimated game ages, Mallow, Lana, Kiawe and Sophocles (as well as the other trial captains) are all listed as being anywhere between 11-19 in game canon.

    14. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      Everyone tends to be aged down in the anime, even if their game designs look blatantly older. Misty and May are officially 10 despite how busty they are, and despite Serena's game design clearly looking like teen-early 20s, the flashbacks make clear she's the same age as Ash, if not younger (maybe why the series redesigned her midway).

  18. Question to KHCast if he can see this: whenever I see Mormon people being satirized in media, they're always shown as being overly happy, friendly, chirpy, family people. Is there any kind of base to it?

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      Well we are family centered. It's a big part of our beliefs. Generally we for the most part are friendly people as well. Lots of on Mormons seem to say that.

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      Why do you ask?

    3. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Just a random question really. Mostly 'cos I'm watching old South Park episodes right now and they always showed Mormons as being really happy all the time to almost disturbing levels.

    4. KHCast

      KHCast

      Well we aren't creepy level. Just friendly. Also fun fact: the creators of South Park are ex-Mormon.

      Not saying it is. South Park just satirizes them as as being impenetrably happy (to the point that they just laugh and smile even when somebody's just told them to "fuck off")

      Wikipedia (for what that's worth) doesn't mention it. Parker's article doesn't specify a religion, and Stone's confirms my knowledge that he was from a Jewish family.

      It may have been a rumor if that's the case, but I thought I heard that Parker and Stone were in the faith for a little bit. Eh, either way, they seem to love us lol.

      if you decide at some point to display some form of "unwanted sexual predation"  against a non-consenting (especially if underage) individual, then you bloody well be fucking prepared for people to find out and call you out it on it.

      Depends how it's handled. The other day I saw a Toy Story YTP, and right towards the end:

      "Ah Buzz, we missed the truck"

      "We're not aiming for the truck"

      *hits world trade centre*

      Yeah, that's a little too on the nose for me.

      It's not the exact video, but here we go

      Also

      "Not Sonic's problem."

      What. He and Shahra were friends, how is her being sad not his problem?

      If he had wished for her to be happy it would have had some mind control-y vibes that would've been a lot worse than what he really wished for.

  21. Why did Archie have to cut Mega Man and Sonic Boom rather than, say, one of their countless digest titles? I’m sure the world could survive just fine without Super Mega Archie Universe Jamboree with Jughead & Betty & Veronica in the World of Archie & More Archie Clusterfuck Double Jumbo Digest or whatever…

    1. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Not sure either. It's a shame really for Mega Man the most, but a shame for Boom, too. Thanks to Worlds Collide (and my Mega Man friend), I'm not a noobie Mega Man fan and have been loving the comics. I feel sad that it's on hiatus with no news of when it's returning.

      Boom comics were actually getting better with the comedy, but then all of a sudden it gets pulled into a crossover, and then ends with 1 final issue after the crossover. So 7 issues dedicated to Boom...

    10. The KKM

      The KKM

      also you're missing a point here, sly. in the end of it all, sega may leave, capcom may leave, but archie'll have archie. it makes sense to prioritize the cheap reprints of their own material that keep the brand alive to potentially pay off on bigger profits for themselves alone with the main archie comics, instead of the licensed comics where profit isn't entirely theirs and give or take a couple decades will eventually stop being published by them.

    11. The KKM

      The KKM

      which is different from what egmont did with stc, which was just "well kids start reading comics young and then stop reading comics, so by this point the kids reading aren't the ones who were reading in 1992- why're we wasting money on new stories when they won't know it's the old ones?

    12. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @KKM: as someone who started reading them in 1997, I can vouch for the fact that this worked.

    13. The KKM

      The KKM

      to a point, but it doesn't seem to have worked when it was literally all they were doing. I think there comes a point where you start having like, brothers giving their younger brothers issues, and people selling their old issues, and the fact it's only reprints starts becoming really apparent. I remember hating when I had reprints in my Disney comics as a kid

      One thing I noticed about the oc characters, they include the same species as the witchcarters. Nice coincidence there sega.

    10. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      He actually said that they'd decided not to add such options because most OCs the fanbase make (or at least the ones in the target audience) follow a similar size to the standard Sonic template anyway. 

    11. Big Panda
    12. Ferno

      Ferno

      sounds like a convenient excuse tbh, or just convenient for them in general that most kids just base their character's shapes on the cool characters like Sonic and Shadow. Either way.

    The Super Sonic opening creates hell for the continuity.

      Sonic keeps the emeralds from Sonic 2.

      Done.

    2. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      The Angel Island opening in Sonic Mania should have been the surfboard. Would have been an amazing reference.

    3. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      I’ve never cared for that detail to begin with (closing off any potential gap for other games to take place in), but it has other problems too.

      For starters, Sonic still having the emeralds with him after 2 contradicts just about every instance afterward where the emeralds are shown to scatter again after being used.

      Secondly, why would Sonic even bring the emeralds with him? Wouldn’t it make more sense to hide them somewhere?

    4. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Well, wait.

       

      We used the Emeralds multiple time in Sonic 2 and they didn't scatter.

       

      I'm also not sure we've ever seen the Emeralds just fly off and scatter in-game, have we? Maybe Sonic just lets them go when he's done with them?

    5. Sean

      Sean

      Don't worry about it

    6. shdowhunt60

      shdowhunt60

      Okay, so maybe he went looking after the Chaos Emeralds after Sonic 2 in between games then. Maybe he just wanted to have Super Sonic at the offhand chance Eggman started shit. There you go.

      Versus the surfboard ending, how is that supposed to be better? Are Sonic and Tails both surfboarding? If not, why did Sonic alone go to Angel Island, versus Tails making an Emerald radar telling them to go to Angel Island? Also, you can't really just surfboard to a place, that's not really how that works.

    7. Tornado

      Secondly, why would Sonic even bring the emeralds with him? Wouldn’t it make more sense to hide them somewhere?

      Well...you can turn this on it's head: he kind of learns this lesson immediately when Sonic 3 begins.

      The possibility that someone could steal all the Emeralds from him at once might explain why he always sends them away afterwards anyway (nothing has ever suggested that it always happens automatically, as far as I remember).

    9. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      S2 ends with Super Sonic and plane

      S3 begins with Super Sonic and plane

      wouldn't exactly call it hell for the continuity 

    10. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Sonic had the emeralds scattered away in Sonic 1 because he used them to make a big "Dragon Ball" wish to make South Island go back to normal. Plus, those were only six emeralds, if he had all seven then maybe they could've restored the island without them.

       

      Also, I rather not take away what makes the rival's introduction so epic by establishing something stronger than the emeralds.

    11. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Guess I need to face the facts; Sonic 2 leads straight into Sonic 3 and there’s no wiggleroom for anything else to have happened.

      Time to rethink my internal timeline!

    12. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      If it's Sonic CD you're trying to place, we had a pretty good discussion a few years back if you want to use it to help shape your internal timeline!

      Big Panda

      Oh it’s not CD I’m thinking of. It’s those those pesky Sonic 2 GG and Sonic Chaos and their lack of a seventh Chaos Emerald.
