"The first of three simultaneous stories! 
• Spotlighting beloved characters Tails, Tangle, and Whisper!"

"Three simultaneous stories" kinda implies that there's different isolated one-shots for each character. I almost interpreted this as being a team-up between the three. I guess it's just kinda weird to me having all this focus on Tangle & Whisper when they have their own series.

I doubt that Sonic will actually succumb to the Metal Virus for one reason and one reason alone: he's the main character and SEGA would never allow it. Maybe he comes close, but at the last minute a super transformation will come and cure the virus or some other Deus Ex Machina bullshit.

 

Sega did allow Sonic to be consumed in Smash Ultimate.

But that's because Sakurai is Japanese, just like SEGA. It's much easier to communicate with each other. Also, Sakurai probably built up a lot of goodwill with Smash so that SEGA trusts him more.

Probably. 

 

Sakurai’s likely the only reason Sonic’s had any expression beyond the cartoony stuff in Mania.

Yeah, that is confounding me as well.

To be fair, that was for the sake of the story. And likely up to Sakurai.

SEGA allowed Archie to do certain things with him post 160 under certain parameters and/or work arounds.

I suppose

That's what it seems like. 

That's cool. That's genuinely neat. Other charcters pulling out major game changing win is a neat precedent to set this early on.

Maybe amy will do a cool

I can't wait for that

To be honest, she probably could've been one of the ones doing it this time.

Today is Sonic's birthday, and I'm playing Mania Plus again, and reading Volume 2 again, I forgot how good it was, after those slow first issues. To be honest, reflecting on these 17 issues, I feel like there has been more meat here, more significant and substancial stuff happening in this year and half, than in that 3 years long and boring Shattered World Crisis set-up arc. But I'm gonna stop with the Archie comparisons, because this book is its own thing, it couldn't be more different, and it's doing a great work.

Currently listening to Bumblekast's Retrospective of Year One. Will report any interesting tidbits as they come.

Retrospective

Spoiler

 

  • Master Overlord was intentionally meant to be streamlined due to how cluttered Metal Overlord looked
    • The placement of the Master Emerald was changed per SEGA's direction.
  • Finds writing Eggman again cathartic
  • Impressed with how people have taken to Starline
    • May not turn on Eggman [in Year Two] 
  • SEGA was fine with pretty much everything he came up with for Year Two, which he feared would have been too dark
  • Enjoyed the speculation and debate that's come with potential Virus victims
  • SEGA evidently won't let him write five years in advance [for some reason]

 

Q&A

Spoiler
  • Doesn't know official word on what happens after Mania
    • would guess is that Encore is more canon over Adventures
  • A little surprised people were upset by Mobini testing
  • Stuff about Nexus
  • New Multiverse stuff aside from Sonic Classic Blaze and possibly Little Planet is a maybe,
    • Doesn't see need for it in near future
    • Would prefer SEGA multiverse
  • Stuff about Scourge
  • Stuff about 30YL
  • There is something in IDW that will change due to fan reaction
  • Whisper can see
    • Actually knew someone like that--it was freaky
    • Capabilities of Whisper's mask will be touched on in Miniseries
    • Evan Stanley came up with Whisper's design beyond characterization and broad points

From Previous Episode

Spoiler
  • Sonic "Losing what he cares about" is supposed to be a theme within the Zombot arc
  • Stuff about Emerald Spears

Emerald Spears is Archie Mega Man. Don’t get too confused, it has nothing to do with Sonic.

Oh yeah, sorry about that. Probably should've made that distinction. 😅
