    This is a very cool cartoon! I only watched the first two parts.

    I don't have much to say about 2, but yes, at least the first movie was good.

    I have nothing to comment on in regards to the TV show, however.


  2. Things have been busy, but I've been getting to them whenever I can!

    MAYA FEY: @Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

    Spoiler

    “So, Lady Palutena… it’s been a while. What Skylander are we looking at?” Pit asks, putting away a plate containing his breakfast.

    Palutena daintily puts away her adorned eating utensils before focusing on the task at hand.

    “Well, Pit. I decided we can do this one, today.”

    “Did we have to do this so early in the morning?” Viridi rubs her eyes before taking a bite out of a grape vine she conjured. “A goddess needs her beauty rest, you know.”

    “You could’ve just not come, Viridi. Nobody said your appearance was mandatory.” Palutena shakes her head.

    Viridi rolls her eyes. “Yeah, yeah. It’s just that it’s not really that entertaining around here without you guys bickering for my amusement.”

    “Aww, you could’ve just said you’re lonely!” Pit smiles.

    “I’m not lonely! I’m totally the opposite of lonely! I’m just bored, okay? Geez!” Viridi barks.

    Palutena claps her hands. “Now, now. This is no place for screaming at each other. Save that for the battlefield.”

    With that, Palutena snaps her fingers to reveal the image of the next Skylander. A girl in purple robes.

    “Hey, this person looks… sorta familiar! Back in that time we talked about that Phoenix guy! She seems to be by his side!” Pit points out. “Her name is… uhhh…”

    “We never said her name before, Pitstain.” Viridi replies.

    “I-I know that! I just wanted to see how close I can get!” Pit exclaims. “She… looks like a Mary! Mary Fairy!”

    Palutena holds back some laughter. “I wouldn’t know about her being a fairy, but the name is similar. Maya Fey.”

    Pit raises his fist in the air.

    “Allllright! Take that, Viridi!”

    “Lucky guess.” Viridi groans. “Alright, what’s her deal?”

    “Maya is the cheery companion to Phoenix Wright, determined to get to the bottom of any of his cases with him. There isn’t much worth talking about aside from her without going into specifics…” Palutena explains. “…Except one little thing.”

    “And what is that little thing?” Pit asks.

    “Her power. The Fey family has a special ability to, how do I put it…? Channel the dead?” Palutena replies.

    “…What?” Viridi asks. “Well, that sort of undead hocus pocus has no place in my garden.”

    “Maybe. But yes, Maya is a Spirit Medium, which allows the souls of the dead to literally possess her for a brief amount of time.” Palutena continues.

    Pit’s eyes widen, as if his own worldview has turned upside down. “Whooooa! That’s so cool! You can gain testimonies of someone’s murder… from the deceased themselves, right?!  That’s like… cheating! But a good cheating, since you can find the truth easier, you know?”

    “This channeling goes beyond the spiritual plane. Maya’s physical appearance even changes to match the body of the spirit. She can turn older, change genders, whatever it takes to ensure the spirit takes control of her.” Palutena says. “However she has no outside input afterwards, whatever is done at that point is the spirit’s choice as Maya herself would be unconscious for the duration of the possession.”

    “Man, I bet she would be super useful during the Galleem attack. We’d have our own puppet fighter!” Pit smiles, still at awe.

    ...

    There are no words. This is.... absolutely awful.

    Basically, imagine a kid, and they have a bunch of toys.

    "Ben, I'm taking some of these toys and putting them in a box."

    "Why mom?"

    "Because I want you to play with the toys that I think fit the moment better."

    "Will I ever play with them again?"

    "Sure, when I think it's the right time to play with them."

    This is sounding eerily like the plot to The LEGO Movie.

    Yet not as funny and without a happy ending.

    That's understandable; I think this will be the turning point for a lot people with the series for better or worse. 

    Indeed. I bought a Pokeball Plus and Go for the sake of catching Pokemon to bring into Home not too long ago. But now I feel robbed for this to happen. Yeah, it's definitely on me for making a hasty purchase, but it's not like we'd foresee this happening considering we just got a Direct that would've told us what we needed to hear.

    Rather they swept it under the rug at Treehouse.

    This obviously ain't the end of my ride with Pokemon. I haven't caught up on the 3DS titles yet as Gen 5 is what I'm still playing on, but I recently was replaying Gen 4 and loved it. So I still have a couple more games to go with my partners before things come to an abrupt halt.

    And of course the movies sound dope after Detective Pikachu so they're still getting my money on that standpoint.

    But that's about it for me. 

    The best I can hope for to regain trust is to have Pokemon be progressively added in through patches, but the fact that Masuda is making this a company wide "policy" is slowly diminishing the likelihood of that happening.

    Mehhh... at least the Pokeball Plus feels nice to hold. A neat display piece. So my purchase is... somewhat justified.

    The series is over 2 decades old and is the most selling media franchise ever. So I HIGHLY doubt one or two dumb decisions are going to affect their sales very much. At worst, this will just piss off and turn away the older fans, but the younger generation will just pick up the slack.

    Never said the series was gonna literally die.

    But rather me saying goodbye to buying any games in the future, because I'm not supporting this practice.

    Hello there! I'm also new. My profile has the reason for my name, but it's not the most interesting part. I used to go to SEGA's Sonic forums before they shut down, and I promised myself not to join another, but I was tempted by the lack of Sonic in my daily life. I still play Sonic Mania, occasionally, and wish that there were more new games, so if the wait has to be part of this fandom, then I will gladly comply. Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to SSMB! Enjoy your stay!

    Hope this place satisfies your need for more Sonic!

    Umm, hello there. Just freshly looking into forums, (never done before, only on Sonic Retro [even there I don't have my account, just lurk] and some polish Sonic-related forum that I lost it's URL years ago) decided to just make an account so my username won't be taken if I wanted to make an account later. Don't expect me to write that much, I'm just shy overall.

    Welcome to SSMB! Enjoy your stay!

    Nothing wrong with reserving your place! Hope to see you around soon!


  8. They're back, and ready to tackle the biggest subject yet!

    ...Spirit Bikes.

    MAKOTO NIJIMA: @Ryannumber1gamer

    Spoiler

    “Who’s this person, Lady Palutena?” Pit asks, looking at the next Skylander.

    This girl seems relatively normal. Brown hair, red eyes, a pretty standard outfit not unlike a school uniform. Definitely not the most capable of battle at first glance.

    ...But Pit knows at this point, there’s always more than meets the eye with these people.

    “This is Makoto Nijima. Student Council President of Shujin Academy.” Palutena reveals.

    Viridi could only scoff at that introduction. “Hah! What would she do to the bad guys? Lecture them to death?”

    “Waiiit a minute.” Pit squints his eyes. “I think I’ve seen her someplace before…”

    “A sharp eye, Pit. Makoto is actually one of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts.” Palutena says confirming Pit’s suspicions.

    Viridi’s eyes widen. “Wait, she’s one of Joker’s friends?! That means we saw her in like, that Mementos place, yeah? She looks so… different!”

    The image shifts to Makoto’s Phantom Thief attire, with her bearing a motorcycle suit with a lot of spikes.

    “Yeah! Yeah! That’s more like it!” Viridi affirms.

    Palutena continues.

    “Makoto may look like your average, very diligent student… and to be fair, she is. But as a Phantom Thief, she’s been able to embrace another side of herself. She bears a very strong sense of justice, and a temper behind that mild mannered demeanor.”

    Pit raises his hand in curiosity. “Oh! Oh! Lady Palutena! Does this mean she has one of those Persona things too?”

    “Correct, Pit. Makoto’s Persona is among one of the most unique I’ve seen. Its name is Johanna.” Palutena says.

    Pit rubs his hands. “Ooh! I bet it’s a super cool monster, or maybe a giant lady considering the name! Or…”

    Pit’s droning thoughts get cut short however as the image morphs to reveal the Persona: A blue, glowing… motorbike.

    “…A… motorcycle?” Pit and Viridi asks in unison, wrapping their head around this concept.

    “Yes. A motorcycle.” Palutena replies.

    Pit and Viridi stay silent for a moment, staring at each other before starting to share their own speculation.

    “So… does it need gas to run?” Pit asks.

    “If it pops a tire, does Makoto need to make a new one?” Viridi ponders.

    The two continue to go back and forth.

    “Does Makoto make them with her mind?”

    “Can other people ride it? Like Wario?”

    “If Kirby sucks it up, does it make him wheel Kirby?”

    “No, Pit… If Kirby sucks it up, since the Persona is just your other self, it would turn him into Makoto Kirby, right?”

    “Can an Autobot scan it and turn into that thing?”

    “If it breaks down, do you need to repair it by going to a mechanic, or a psychiatrist?”

    “Can you interchange parts?”

    “Can it be used in Mario Kart?”

    “How would it feel like riding something that’s supposed to be you?”

    “What kind of engine does it have?”

    Palutena shakes her head. “I have a lot of questions to answer…”

    She stays still for a moment before saying something else…

    “…Does it have Winter Tires when it gets cold outside?”

     


  9. Been pretty busy, but I'm back in business to deliver updates once every two weeks as I alternate with Guidances!

    CHAPTER 2: REBIRTH

    Spoiler

    The Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles.

    A place that seems to hold the best of the best students, only to turn out to be a refuge after a great disaster… to then be revealed as the stage of a sadistic game.

    A game where people choose to be stripped of their identities, their personalities, everything that they are to become subjects of a killing game. A game broadcast to billions across the globe for their amusement.

    The game is called Danganronpa. Or at least, so it has been claimed to be.

    But now, 53 seasons in, the final survivors managed to put an end to this ceaseless killing. Who would be behind such a cruel act to begin with?

    Tsumugi Shirogane. A seemingly plain girl with long blue hair, glasses and a passion for all things geek culture. The Ultimate Cosplayer with the ability to dress up as any fictional character down to the most impossible of qualities.

    Some may call it illusion, disguise, or even shapeshifting. Nevertheless, it was pure talent.

    A talent born from passion for Danganronpa. A talent turned into evil as she orchestrated this season to entertain the masses.

    That is… until now. The masses have made their choice, Danganronpa will end. Now she watches her empire fall piece by piece.

    “It’s all led up to this… huh?” Tsumugi asks herself internally as she looks up. A blue blaze ricochets from structure to structure. The only being keeping her company in her final moments is the Monokuma mascot she works with.

    “Final punishment time.” Monokuma tells Tsumugi, waving to the remaining Nanokumas who are filming this last execution. The end of the set and of everyone inside it. “Smile and wave like you mean it, girlo! This is what you wanted, right?!”

    “A Mastermind’s death!”

    “Then why do I feel so empty…?” Tsumugi clutches her chest. It’s true, it’s not like she didn’t plan for her death or anything. She’d be fine with whatever may come to her. After all, this is Danganronpa. Anyone can die at any moment.

    No.

    This was Danganronpa.

    This isn’t just the end of a season. This could be the end of the series. And it’s all on her. The people of the world rejected her stories. Her future plans. The spin-offs, the merchandise, the views, the fanfiction… all of which she dreamed she has, crumbling away like the building behind her.

    With a somber sigh, filled with something that she never felt before. It’s not despair not like the one she aspired to give… rather something truly miserable. Something her favorite character, Junko Enoshima even hates.

    Disappointment. In herself.

    No matter her denial, this is all on her.

    “…Right?”

    Tsumugi’s mind goes hazy, as if the whole world is distorting around her. Almost like what she’s seeing isn’t real. Is this a virtual simulation? The truth? Or even a lie she told others?

    Is Danganronpa really a worldwide phenomenon? Or was this something she claimed?

    “I don’t know anymore…”

    Tsumugi clutches her head, an extreme pain coursing through her. Almost like as if it is breaking and putting itself together again. Her eyes shut tightly as she anticipates for that final boulder to fall on her…

    …Only it never did when she opens her eyes. She could only hear a digitized voice.

    GENETIC RECONSTRUCTION COMPLETE. CONCLUSION: SUBJECT MAY HAVE MENTAL FRAGMENTATION.

    “Where am I?”

    Tsumugi looks at herself. Alive, in as pristine condition as she was during Danganronpa 53. Not only that, but she’s floating in a pod. Outside of the glass casing she noted is a palace made of bricks. Toy bricks.

    “Hello? Hello?!” She calls out, floating towards the glass and placing her palms on it. “Can someone please let me out?!”

    Nobody. Is the person behind this on some kind of break.

    “So unprofessional…” She grumbles internally.

    She bangs on the glass with her fist. “I said hello?! Let me out!”

    Again, and again, and again she hits the glass with as much force as her body could muster.

    “I should have made myself the Ultimate Martial Artist or something. What does Sakura do? Right, right!”

    She winds up a powerful punch… only to hurt her knuckles against the glass.

    “Shit!” She cries out, holding onto her fist.

    She stares at the fist, trembling. Her eyes flare up with rage until something catches her attention… her fist is glowing blue.

    Her arm follows suit, then her chest, and her legs, everything is illuminating, and it feels good.

    Accepting her new powers, Tsumugi tries again. With a mighty cry based on all those shounen anime she watched as a kid, she strikes the glass with a powerful punch…

    “Gaaah!” She cries. She didn’t leave a dent.

    “…This definitely isn’t glass!”

    Which ones? He looks the same 

    It's somewhat minor, but apparent.

    megacloseup.jpg

    The original Megatron was very animalistic and alien, not unlike the Xenomorphs from Alien. This design got quite a lot of backlash.

    megatron_head.jpg?w=256

    So they went back to the drawing board and fixed the design to appear more humanoid than alien. And the old design did make it through some promotional material, so it isn't too late for Paramount to change Sonic considering what happened to Megatron.

    The only difference here that could cause a problem is that Megatron only appears for the final act of the film compared to Sonic who is there for the whole runtime. So we'll see if they have the time to tweak all the shots necessary.

    Graaaanted Megatron is a far more complex model, so I guess it evens out.


  11. I at least feel somewhat reassured by the mature, professional response from Jeff Fowler so good on him. This isn't the first time Paramount did this, as I pointed out a while back that Megatron got redesigned after fan backlash for the first Bayformers. So if it worked with ol' Megs, maybe Sonic stands a chance to at least look as well as he does in those posters.

    Hello, Knight56 here! I've gotten pretty into Sonic the Hedgehog over the past few years, despite being indifferent toward it through most of my childhood. I hope to be a helpful and insightful member here on the forums!

    Also, I am thinking about making some fanfictions based on the games, more specifically retellings to help better explain what I think are misunderstood or poorly portrayed storylines. We'll see how that turns out however!

    8c03e5009c9b3db8b3bb949edbcb452899866608

    Welcome to SSMB! Enjoy your stay!

    A fellow writer, huh? Nice to meet ya!


  13. Alright, alright. Gotta think fresh. Let's look on both sides here. Okay, okay.

    Positives.

    Ben Schwartz was a great casting choice and he sounds great. Sonic looks good on the poster and in some shots. Carrey is as I expect him to be and he works. His charm works for the character. Some lines are admittedly funny, and the idea of Sonic Quicksilvering some action scenes work. The lightning and the Doctor Strange sling ring Warp Ring angle needs some getting used to, but I can take it.

    ...But other than that this is awful.

    Why? Why are we going with this real world angle? Detective Pikachu showed it's fun for cartoon characters and real people to co-exist in the same world. Do we need a crossover like the friggin' Smurfs? Some shots are way too much like they're taken from The Smurfs, such as the "child in the bag" moment. The cinematography is so uninspired.

    Couldn't we go for the Sonic Adventure angle, or even the 06 angle? It'll at least be more accurate. These characters living side by side. But nope, it seems like according to this trailer and the production comments, all that exists is the Classic era I guess. So therefore this is the only way in their eyes. Pathetic and lazy that they have to resort to the stereotypical adaptation formula than take some risks.

    Even the fanfilm was able to have both exist in the same world, with animals being like Sonic referred to as a "South Islander."

    And the robots, couldn't they at least have the shape of the original designs? I'm not saying to slap a classic Motobug in there, but at least something shaped like insects? You can add the Transformer-y angle, sure. But Jim Carrey's Robotnik is at least eccentric enough where these robot designs wouldn't be out of place.

    Would make sense for the story, the military is reluctant of hiring Robotnik because he's a crazy guy with childish lolking robots, but he's effective and that's why he's right for the job.

    Don't get me started on Sonic's design either, we all know how horrifying it looks. It's not even proportions anymore, his face is just grotesque.

    What a trainwreck.


  14. After months and months of setup, the next prequel to the SSMB Heroes Academy Roleplay is here! This time, focusing on Tsumugi Shirogane, Season 2's Mastermind and her rise to power... and how it ties into the RP's entire history.

    TsuPoster2.png&key=65e0d7a230e93ba2cf685

    Quote

    A prequel of the crossover RP SSMB Heroes Academy's Second Season.

    Evil never really dies. Sometimes, it only gets stronger. This is the case for Tsumugi Shirogane, who not only suffered a career ending defeat, but her own death.

    Yet she lives as a new, more powerful force, and she's using that to get a second chance to fulfill her dream of entertaining an audience and becoming validated once more... no matter the cost and no matter who she has to work with.

    And this time, the entire multiverse is her stage.

    CHAPTER 1: CREATIVE AMBITION

    Spoiler

    Foundation Prime.

    The center of all dimensions in the multiverse. A sacred land containing seas of bricks, occasionally blasting upwards to form hints of the many realities surrounding it.

    A once undisturbed land, until one day, a being known as Lord Vortech sought to use its power to create one “perfect” universe before being stopped by the three “Travellers”.

    The legendary hero of Gotham: Batman, the rebellious Master Builder Wyldstyle and the wise wizard Gandalf put an end to Vortech’s wish for multiversal consolidation and had the cruel mastermind trapped within a never-ending rift loop.

    That is, until one day, the arrival of the Disciples changed the multiverse forever. These dimension hopping heroes lead by the Sentinel known as Sonic the Hedgehog and Sayaka Miki made the concept of universal travel a regular thing to both heroes and villains alike.

    And the more rifts that open, the higher the risk of tears in the fabric of space and time become, freeing Vortech from his prison… and eventually becoming the leader of LOSE.

    A multiversal organization of evildoers which he used to achieve a new goal: Find a way to kill the Writers who create the Fictional Realm and free villains from their fate of losing to the hero.

    He eventually figured out a way to do so, by using the Foundation Elements of this unstable multiverse and the power of either Sonic or Sayaka to point the way to the Golden Weapons that convert a Writer’s thoughts into reality.

    With only two, the Fourth Wall can break.

    To accomplish his goal, he needs a spy to infiltrate the Skylanders, a new group of heroes formed by the Disciples from across the multiverse to protect it. Luckily… he knew just the one he could use.

    He just needed to revive her…

    ….

    ………

    ……………….

    Waddling across the room, a black and white bear looks across the hall of the grand palace of Foundation Prime: The home of LOSE.

    “Ah, here we are!” Monokuma, LOSE’s second in command points out upon stumbling across a regal pair of doors. He proceeds to knock.

    “Right, so uh… boss? Looking through the list of the crap we need for that little hourglass you’re makin’. You’re saying one of these Elements is that Madoka chick’s hair ribbon?”

    Silence.

    “…Boss? Oooopen says a me! Hellloooo?”

     He knocks again.

    “Getting real tired of your shit, your majesty.” Monokuma says, sarcastically.

    A loud voice booms from the other side.

    “You will not interrupt me during my ritual!”

    A gust flows through the cracks, pushing Monokuma into the wall.

    “…Fine. I’ll ask Izanami then. Geez.” Monokuma growls. “Why am I working for this friggin’ guy again?”

    Dusting himself off, he walks away, grumbling to himself as he wonders what’s even going on in there.

    “Ritual… heh. He’s probably jacking off or something. Do these LEGO people even do that? I don’t wanna know.”

    Meanwhile, inside those doors, Lord Vortech is hard at work.

    Looking over a human-sized capsule, Vortech holds his staff high into the sky in his private throne room. The corrupted clouds of Foundation Prime swirl around as a rift opens within the capsule itself.

    “By the powers of space and time… the limitless potential of the Brick! Reform the ultimate apprentice!”

    Coming out of the rift, bouncing inside the capsule is a swarm of white bricks. They swirl like a tornado, clicking together to slowly form a shape.

    Feet… legs… torso… arms… head…

    It’s rough around the edges, but it can be made out that the bricks have come together to create the silhouette of a young woman.

    “Excellent…” Vortech chuckles to himself. His blue body and gold armor shimmers in the bright light of the bricks performing their next step in the revival process.

    The creation is consumed in a blue light, morphing in shape. The edges round out, the proportions shift and the sound of plastic slowly fade away and become replaced with that of moving fabric.

    As the light fades, the image of a human emerges from it. Blue hair, glasses, white shirt, long dark skirt and a blazer to top it all off.

    She seems plain, a normal girl. But Vortech knows what he has.

    As she bears the potential to become one of the greatest threats in the multiverse.
