What was wrong with Sonic X?
not fast enough
GOTTA GO FASTER
GOTTA GO FAST
It was too slow.
Strange isn't it?
It tried to accommodate the Japanese canon with the western canon and failed miserably
Not enough chilli dogs.
Well with Sonichu being serialized at the same time it was hard to compete
Nothing. It was perfect.
I second this.
It really was...and didn't really have any good plots other then the video games seasons they recreated.
The humans, especially Chris. Oh and I really disliked the music.
Because Sonic is awful, even more so when they try and give it a story.
The show was pretty bad in my opinion, but I'm probably not the target audience so I can't judge. The opening was enjoyable.
I remember really liking the main theme. Not the opening, but the one they used the most in the show whenever something exciting was happening.
The show was at its best when it was based on the games, but even then shit got ruined because of the humans.
I could've sworn Sonic X was the Sonichu anime
I mean they both had Chris as the MC
Adventure Battler 2 was the last good sonic game, Shadow the hedgehog was ok too even though it used guns and was really edgy. After that it turned into DBZ: Sonic Edition
Shadow the hedgehog was great because it was edgy.
Ehh, Shadow wasn't God awful, but it was still a fucking mess. The story (or, you know, the million routes it had) made no sense, and the controls were kind of wonky, like Heroes'.
Everything after episode 52.
all 3D sonic games are shit Adventure is no except. Only vindicated due to nostalgia
Gotta go fast
you watched 52 episodes of that?
The stupid alien-plant race at the end of the series.
It was way past cool OP.
The controls were ok, but they were wonky, like you were always on ice and slid more than you wanted to. The routes didn't really make sense only because you could be a good guy the entire time then still chose the bad guy route at the end and it didn't even try to explain why you suddenly went evil.
At least adventures was still about going fast and didn't have werewolf shit or anything. I want a 3DS game only about the chao garden, shit was so cash.
Who's that at the bottom left?
Hey man, All Stars Racing Transformed is good.
SADX is my favorite Sonic game. Followed by 06. To be honest it wasn't all that buggy and it's one of the few games to have a dark, gritty epic plot as well as the last game where you could play as the other characters other than just sanic
The Sonic franchise is kinda lacking anyway. Unbearable fanbase, repetitive games, and SEGA isn't really doing all that well anyways.
God damnit I regret being a sonicfag back in 11'ish. Then I found anime.
It aired right before Shaman King, so of course I did.
No. Go die.
It focused on fast activities like treasure hunting and fishing.
Pretty much this. I didn't know children needed a self-insert and the ending would have been fine at 52.
I mostly agree. There are a couple recent ones that are actually good.
Can we all agree Sonic Heroes had some good tunes even though it was a mess of a story and the controls were a clusterfuck to get used too?
You mean adventures? IT was ok though because it wasn't sonic doing it, it was like a side-story that just connected to the main sonic game at the end.
The only really bad part about the game was the mech fighting tails. Eggman was forgiveable because he's Eggman, but Tails had no business being in a mech.
The story was complete shit because it was literally the same thing 4 times with clone characters each time. The final boss was ok, but still nothing to write home about.
The OST was good though.
The boss fights completely fucked me over in that game.
But I like the vocal tunes of the Sonic series in general, always pump me up.
Best character didn't win
Thanks for calling Adventure Battle 2, all my friends correct me and say it is Adventure 2: Battle, so I disowned them and live my life as a hermit committing full time to Sonic Adventure Battle 2.
It's Adventure 2 Battle though.
Would you a Maria?
Sorry, the title was needlessly long and I'm not from /v/ so I don't remember every game title I play exactly.
So do I. I lost interest in him in middle school but I have a soft spot for Sonic mostly due to nostalgia.
I played the Dreamcast version, so I'm conditioned just to say Adventure 2. When I heard about the Battle version I just got confused.
But I wasn't being sarcastic.
Dude I told you we're not friends anymore.
The OVA had an amazing OST
Some of the music was good.
Would you a Helen?
>you could be a good guy the entire time then still chose the bad guy route at the end and it didn't even try to explain why you suddenly went evil.
That's more because of the shitty English dialogue, though. If you play it in Japanese, it's clear that Shadow's still good, but wants to fight his rival Sonic now that they're done with the whole alien thing.
oh shit, I didn't even make that connection. This requires further investigation
No metal sonic
Classic sonic games were absolutely brilliant platformers, the rest of the series ranged from good to abysmal
Who is the guy to the left of shadow wearing the party hat?
Wasn't this proven to be fake?
I remember crying when they left to their world
Dr Robotnik > Dr Egg-man
You cant refute this.
Only this robotnik
>Implying Generations wasn't the last good one.
Chris, and not using Live and Learn for the Biolizard fight in the dub.
The plot arcs where they cover SA and SA2 were cool but I didn't watch much other than.
I love the fuck out of Sonic but the games and comics will always be where the real fun is.
Robotnik doesn't have a song this god-tier
but that is wrong
>I haven't played anything after Dreamcast SA
It had QUALITY everywhere
sonic generation is what future sonic should be. than lost worlds fucked it all up.
This wasn't a movie
No Hyper Sonic
Has anybody seen Sonic X: Cosmic Chase?
atleast we had dark sonic.
god. i want to slap my younger self.
Shit this look like it'll actually be good.
it doesn't exist does it?
I still have my old Sonic the Comic comics around here somewhere.
Never could bring myself to throw them out.
sell them? could be worth a healthy penny.
no, a 2005 fanart edited by Chris Gay on dA
>That dark skinned secretary of the president.
I forgot all about her. She'd probably be my waifu if she actually had some fanart..
As a Sonic buff I can tell you that both SA and SA2 are horrible aged games with awful camera angles and finicky controls. But with amazing music.
06 is reality warping levels of terribad but with some good music.
Secret rings is really fucking stupid and bad.
Black Knight is an okay time waster. Colours is good.
Generations is Great.
Advance is the only good Sonic GBA game.
Unleashed is pretty fun, but the night time levels go on way to fucking long and the jazz battle music gets irritating after a while.
Sonic 4 is alright, but the lack of momentum and the imitation retro drums left a lot of fans calling it shit when it really wasn't. Also throw away some neat gimmicks every act.
Lost Worlds was mediocre and some okay music.
I think Sonic along with MGS and Castlevania have consistently great music all across the board.
Even if it is fake, the autism is strong in this one.
Oh god, Sonic the comic was edgy as fuck.
Having eggman trying to commit Murder–suicide? Really?
Asshole Sonic is the best Sonic, though.
It was very edgy, looking back on it.
There was that whole plot line where Johnny Lightfoot dies and Sonic goes massively emo over it.
Not edgy enough.
Ow the edge
There was never a point where this joke was either funny or clever.
>Colours is good.
Colors is FANTASTIC
It really should have been multiplat, it deserved more attention
There was an issue where Eggman was craking JF Kenendy assassination jokes
>No chili dogs
>Not Sonic Underground
Shadow the Hedgehog was the edgiest jump in videogames ever made.
It was like setting Super Mario Sunshine in San Andreas.
Didn't go fast enough.
I agree about Chris,but how can you say that about best woman?
Well Sonic x is a good anime and it Apper in 2003!
Sadly, Metal Sonic appears only in spin-off games (Sonic CD, Sonic Heroes, Sonic the Fighters, etc).
Later was replaced by Ow the edge, how sad.
Shadow has been out-edged
im not sure if it was 4kids version or my nostalgia-goggles, but sonic seemed more like a side character in this version.
also i still liked Ao/SatAM/The Movie Sonic better
Because of fucking Chris.
In the game based arcs,he took the spotlight in important scenes that belonged to other characters.
Does everyone else here love the old Sonic movie?
Conker's Bad Fur Day.
Man, it sucks being a fan of this series. It was one of my fondest memories, playing the old 16 bit games. Loved it until they introduced the shadow faggot and then it went down hill.
Still blew my mind Steve Erkle was his VA in the old show.
The problem is with Sonic X is basically how the show is set up.
Like it or not, Sonic isn't the main character of Sonic X. Not even in the third season of Sonic X which is better than the other two.
Chris is the main character of Sonic X. But the thing is, no one really wanted to watch a Sonic anime with an audience surrogate, who's big problem is that he's lonely that his parents aren't around when he gets to hang out with Sonic and bros, is well off, and already has friends of his own.
So people see him as in-the-way, rather than an extra part of the cast, unlike say, Sara from the Sonic OVA.
The main characters hang out at his house, he's apart of all of the adventures, even if he can't do nothing, and other than that, the pacing and animation is kind of sloppy.
When the second season finally decides it's going to start doing the Sonic Adventure games, the events are kind of abridged. Soniv vs Shadow at the Space Colony ARK wasn't very good, and Shadow vs the Biolizard is just terrible.
That being said, I thought the anime hit it's stride on the third season, and it was really good, and had all of that crazy bullshit that we come to Sonic to watch. The climax is sad, and the ending is bittersweet, the author surogate goes home, everyone waves goodbye, and then they go off to adventure as if he were never there in the first place.
Oh, and I guess the biggest fault is that they didn't use enough music from the Sonic games.
Conker's Bad Fur Day never took itself seriously until the very end that came out fucking nowhere.
I have to agree about the 3rd season. It was surprisingly interesting going into space battles and junk (plus Chris actually made himself useful and invented cool shoes for Sonic, and mostly stayed out of the spotlight the rest of the time).
Shadow coming back and kicking ass that was another amazing feat of season 3
The third season was great was it was what we wanted.
Silly, fun space adventures with Sonic and friends, and everyone else can do something instead of sitting around for Sonic to save the day.
Also, what is it with Shadow and human girls, they're all over him in Sonic X.
Fuck, there's even one on the Archie Sonic comics.
I try to rewatch that every year. It's too bad they never released the soundtrack for it because it's so good. Guess I'll have to be content with the rips that are out.
