Sonic Boom (Untagged Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Multi Tails was the funniest episode of season 2! I was laughing throughout. I felt the episode did a great job at presenting why Tails would stoop to the level of cloning himself. I loved how the clones of Tails caused all five copies to have divided brain power, causing them to act dumb. I loved how the gang had to practically baby sit and chase down all of the Tails clones, and it got even funnier when Sonic and the gang accidentally made it worse, and ended up cloning 10 more Tails copies. The part where Sticks tackled the Tails that kept asking her "why?" was hilarious. There was just something hilarious about seeing a bunch of childish Tails copies running around and acting idiotic. I also loved how when Tails was about to be reverted back into one body, Knuckles shook hands with the last Tails to enter the machine, while saying "I'm gonna miss being smarter than you Tails."  The ending cracked me up as well, when Tails asks "why?" in response to what Eggman said, which lead Sticks to tackle Tails off screen.

I'm not sure if it was just because of some signal reception from my Sling TV app's connection, but I thought the episode's art style looked a little different this time around. I can't say it's better than the previous season 2 episodes, but it did look better than most of the awkward looking and stiffly animated ones from season 1. Did anyone else think there was something a bit different in this episode? Maybe they had to tone the visuals down a little to get the episode done easier, due to all the Tails clones running around, but still, the episode didn't look bad, I think it was mainly the lighting and shading that was different. 

I'm just astounded by how impressive season 2 has been! These episodes have had consistent quality, ideas, and humor.

NAKED EGGMAN! IT BURNS! IT BURNS! ...Ahem.

"Multi-Tails" was an enjoyable episode, though I wasn't quite feeling this one as much. I wasn't expecting the machine to split up Tails' brainpower across the clones, making each dumber than the original-- that came out of left field. I did get a few laughs out of it, especially seeing the equally-dumb (or less dumb) Knuckles put his lack of intelligence to use for a change.

In other Boom-related stuff, Bill has confirmed multi-part episodes will air later this season:

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to get the mental image of Eggman showering out of my head.

And yes, that's in the episode too. Beware...

I noticed Sticks was wielding nun chucks during the opening battle. I like how season 2 gave Sticks an arsenal of old fashioned weapons. It's neat to see how one episode, she'll have her trusty boomerang, only to suddenly have a crossbow in one, a slingshot in another, and nun chucks the next. It's only a matter of time before we see Sticks pull out a sword, or a cannon, lol.

The new episode was pretty alright. Not the best as I hoped but it's alot better than the past couple of episodes. The trophy scene did made me bust out in laughter, I admit. 

Don't know if it's me but I could've sworn there was a Jimmy Neutron episode with a similar plot to this week's episode. The name of it has left me.

Just saw the episode myself, holy crap that was hilarious!

The action sequence at the beginning was really good! We got to see the Scorpion Bots for the first time (that's what they're called right?) and we get another instance of Boom Eggman being a cunning and threatening opponent. Nice of Sonic to defend Tails when the villagers are booing at him, bros for life! Seeing all the multiples Tails sharing the fraction of his brainpower is just amusing to me and brought some solid jokes, especially with one of Tails' constantly asking why to Sticks and she loses it and tackles him or seeing Knuckles have fun with them, literally amazing! And then Eggman has to fix the problem himself, that was a really fun episode!

I can't believe this new episode actually had a dick joke in it. When Tails brought Eggman a hand towel, and asked "Is this a towel?" Eggman responds "What am I supposed to cover with that, are you making fun of me?!" I cracked up during that. 

LOL Wow, nice!

Not the first time a Sonic cartoon had adult jokes, I mean in AoStH, Scratch did use a literal blowup doll.

Wow, I didn't realize that at first! The episode just got that much funnier.

Just got done watching the episode, and it was pretty good. I didn't like it as much as the previous episode of this season, but it definitely wasn't bad. This episode had a lot of good jokes in it, Sticks getting tired of Tails saying why, Knuckles using his stupidity for his advantages, the adult joke with Eggman (don't think I didn't catch that writers), and more. I liked that Sonic stuck up to Tails when the villagers were angry at him (I'll always love their relationship). We also got to see some new robots, which was cool. Sticks is getting a lot of weapons this Season which is cool, gives her a lot of tools in her arsenal. Overall, this was a pretty solid episode.

Oh yeah, Sticks used nunchucks in the fight; didn't she?

Looks like Sticks upgraded her arsenal since Season 1, huh?

Another note I forgot to mention, it looks like the lighting is different in this episode when you look back from the previous episodes.

Here are some additional observations I came across while watching Multi Tails.

SnapShot561_3_zpswz6batub.png
Tails's silhouette looks an awful lot like Classic Tails, both shape and stature wise.

Tails smashes a hole in Amy's wall, while holding a hatchet backwards.

They could be a little more consistent in that regard. I mean, the last time they did that was with Ian's episode, and that was weeks ago!

Also, they should promote it on Twitter too, just to be safe. Loads of publicity there.

It's just nice to know that they even care to advertise the show, still, a little bit more effort would be nice.

I wonder how they'll find out who's the real tails.

Surprisingly, there is none. Tails ends up splitting himself into 5 copies, and each share only a fraction of Tails's mind, which ends up creating 5 dumb and childish carnations of Tails running around. I liked how it turned out, because we've all seen the overused cliche of clone dopple gangers, and the characters having trouble identifying with who is really who. I did not expect the episode's plot to take such an unexpected turn, and it turned out for the better, because this episode was a lot of fun to watch.

Seriously, how do you screw up advertising this badly!

As much as I love Aaron and Sergio's antics on the social media, unless SEGA told them to fuck up advertising for Boom as much as possible; this is inexcusable. The fact they promoted the the Mega Drive comics more than the Boom cartoon (even though more people tune in to the show than people who buys a Sonic comic), it's mind-boggling!

I'm pretty sure there's a reason for the Twitter to not promote the show. No idea what it could be, but there must definetly must be a reason.

I loved the interactions between Knuckles and the dumber Tails clones.

Theres indeed something weird with the lighting, as some people have pointed out. it almost looks like some of those "behind the scenes" videos, where they show the models straight from their editor, with very basic lighting. I remember some episodes in season 1 also had the some weird lighting.

Wow, glad I ain't the only person to noticed the incredibly strange lightning. I thought it was the low definition of my television at first. But yeah, it looks ugly. I remember noticing episode 4 of season 1of having this weird effect too.

Seen the episode, eeyup, that was crazy alright!

Seeing childish and innocent Tails clones was hilarious. Other cute moments were:

Sonic lifting up one of the Tails clones, and when another clone asks Eggman to be friends with him was also cute. 

latest?cb=20170108074941

Knuckles playing duck duck goose to pass the time was also cute, I liked how he handled the situation when it got worse. He managed to get the clones in a single line without even chasing them around! Sticks tackling Tails (while the latter says why) was hilarious. Amy trying to get the clones in the machine with a ball gave me a chuckle. Eggman was cunning in this episode, using the Egg tank with a drill to pass the shield and attack the village, and then eventually helping Team Sonic putting Tails back together. He was also sassy, telling Tails that he needed his help since his friends made the situation worse (lol).

We also get to see a new robot, Scorpion Bot, that fires fireballs from it's stinger tail, and they look big compared to a Crab Bot I think. Also when Tails is about to get duplicated, the image here kinda looks like Classic Tails-

latest?cb=20170108074905

Not sure whether that was an intentional reference or not...

But yeah, the lighting here in this episode looked weird in some places. Makes me wonder how it'll look once it reruns on CN. But overall, this was a cute and funny episode, and pretty chaotic. I wonder what Strike! will be about....

Did anyone else notice the possible Fantasia reference in this episode? They had bassoon music  playing when the clones would march in a straight line, similar to the brooms, and at the end, the last few music notes from when Sticks tackles Tails sounded similar to the last few notes in The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

That definitely was high on my list of things I never expected to hear in a Sonic cartoon.

Nice to know I'm not the only one who thought the lighting was off. IMO, the animation was unfinished.If you've ever watched behind the scenes videos of CG animated features or deleted scenes, you'll notice that sometimes they show scenes without lighting where the characters look all bright and today's episode reminded me of this. It's very opbvious when you compare to "In the midnight hour" from last week where it took place mostly at night, but had proper lighting.
