what do you get when you mix Sonic the Hedgehog with an anime when you mix the fanfiction filled original character saturated My Little Pony crossover fan are creating strange character shipping obsessed fandom of Sonic the Hedgehog with the cosplaying body-pillow loving katana collecting anime obsessed we lose you get Sonic X the coolest adaptation of Sonic the Hedgehog since sonic schoolhouse the educational video game for PC now I already spoke a ton about the Sonic fandom in this video now it is very multi sided and I pretty much have
00:30
no opinion whatsoever on the anime fandom so please don't kill me Sonic X is a 2003 Japanese Sonic cartoon that was given English dubs and aired in the US on the for kids Network most people have pretty mixed opinions on this show some saying it's the best son a cartoon some saying it's the worst the most common opinion that I've seen from fans and non-fans of this show however is that the Japanese version is much better than the English version according to the good folks at Sonic Stadium gorg the English version had tons of things cut from the Japanese certain aspects such
01:00
as side characters being killed off somewhat heavy language apparently Tales says this at some point and I actually kind of want to hear that and some character traits were all cut when the show was dubbed most people even say that the jokes are funnier the pacing is better the music is more epic and the voice acting it was all just much better in the Japanese version I made a video on the show quite a while ago and for the most part probably 20 to 30 percent of the comments were something like have you seen the Japanese version it's uncut are you seriously watching the English
01:31
version watch the Japanese surprisingly this show is actually really good in Japanese version now it's the one who grew up with and loved the show what I like to re-watch it in a much higher quality just in a different language I honestly don't care as someone who loves this show as a guilty pleasure and as something that introduced me to the sonic franchise I really don't understand why I'd want to watch the whole thing over in Japanese for a few reasons one I liked the show for a lot of reasons but surprisingly enough part of it is the really corny voice acting
02:03
and how funny it can get shut up you two I personally don't think that I want to see an innocent show about innocent characters swearing and hinting at dirty jokes now I'm not saying that swearing in adult humor just really triggers me oh I'm just too innocent for those things sonic X Japan is of the devil no I don't have gripe with any of those things on their own but as somebody watch Sonic X and grew to love it as a kids show I really don't want my memories of it being changed into something else something darker and more adult to me
02:37
it's a kids show and I wouldn't want it any other way three I just don't get why people would rather have a show you can watch in English in Japanese when I watch a show I don't want to have to read what the characters are saying in that case I can just read a book or even more similar I can read the comics which I actually really enjoy the whole time I'll just be thinking why can't I have someone read this to me oh wait I can there's an English version how dare you if I can move from this spot and actually watch things I've been watching Japanese anime right now oh right
03:06
to each his own are you happy so I personally prefer to remember Sonic X is the cheesy English dub that we all know and love or hate but in the end is it really that bad and why do I even like it to begin with let's dive into some actual episodes and find out just to grab an idea of what this series is let's skim over Episode one chaos control which will give us an idea of the plot this episode starts with Eggman holding cream and cheese hostage now don't get the impression that they are both named after food they are actually
03:38
named after the style of humour that this show has cheesy I guess you could say that about my humor after making that joke anyway Eggman has them held hostage in his base that I think is called chaos control and it holds chaos maybe your controls chaos I really don't know okay uh oh and Rouge is there not sure why she just is one of Eggman's robots accidentally shoots something important well sonic is trying to save cream and cheese and makes this happen
04:10
which I guess transports them all to another dimension but now before knuckles can make a witty pun it used it chaos control all wait is the jokester oh and we get a glimpse of big the cats I didn't know this was going to be a horror show sonic wakes up in a city filled with humans and this lady and after some antics with the police he eventually comes across this kid named Chris that's the plot of the first episode and what have we learned so far this show takes
04:41
place in a world like ours Chris exists for pretty much no reason and don't do drugs or you'll end up like this lady so yes the main premise of this show is that Sonic and his pals and Chris have to live in a world like ours and have to get back home it's actually a pretty cool idea in my opinion putting sonic in his pals in a world like ours gives a lot of cool scenarios and plots we get Sonic having to deal with Fame becoming the town's superhero there's some episodes where the government actually hires them for special missions that actually all sounds really fun and entertaining to watch but there's a
05:11
slight rust patch on this cool idea that slowly grows into a big rusty hole that was a really weird analogy me Chris some random kid who saved Sonic from drowning and all the sudden has to be in every single episode Sonic and his pals decide to stay at this kid's home for whatever reason and let's just say it's really unnecessary there's almost no reason that they should stay with this kid besides to learn about the world and what's going on other than that Chris is well he's
05:42
pretty much useless he gets in the way a lot he wins a lot and you just overall seems to make things very difficult for Sonic and his pals a lot sure he has his shining moments but I honestly didn't care because I never liked him to begin with now he does have a somewhat higher purpose I guess one of the main plots in the series is that Chris's parents are never around his dad is a head of a toy brand and his mom is a famous actor to explain this a bit more I'm going to have to add a bit of us spoiler warning now this isn't a huge spoiler just kind of explains how this
06:13
whole subplot with Chris and his parents goes kind of the ending to season two so if you want everything to be a surprise go ahead and skip to the point appearing on the screen now note to self put time on the screen that it's going to be great job Peter in the end of season two Sonic and his pals and Chris finally find a way to send everyone back home but as they're about to leave Chris runs away with Sonic because he doesn't want them to go since his parents were never around he latched on to Sonic
06:44
through the series Sonic makes no attempt to resist eventually making Chris realize that this won't make him happy and he eventually admits to his parents that he just wants them to be there for him honestly this is pretty smart I mean it dives into Chris's character in the way that son Candles the situation is also smart and amusing I found this was the one time that I was actually interested in Chris's story and one of the few times that this show slows down and focuses more on the emotion it is a very noisy non-stop show most of the time which of course as a kid I totally loved what sucks about
07:14
this is that like I said I don't like Chris and neither did most people he's not really made into a likeable character throughout the series and for me he just distracted the show from focusing more on Sonic and his pals which is what I wanted to see as a result this climax of season 2 was less emotional than it could have been another big problem with this plot is that it just it feels so unfitting even if it is done well this is still a sonic cartoon it just doesn't feel like we should be putting this much focus into some random kid in his parent issues either way Chris is really the only big
07:45
thing in Sonic X that I had an issue with and even though he's constantly they're just whining all the time it didn't really bother me too much from enjoying this show yes I enjoyed this show immensely but what is it about the show that I enjoyed for that we're gonna look at one of my favorite episodes and find out or find out that I'm tasteless I guess that's possible the smoothest I've ever been who are you talking to tails yeah I just stand in front of it dude I'm sure you'll stop it
08:16
safe you're beautiful field from that jet just zipping towards you hundred miles an hour I'm sure that would definitely save it I saw it laying next to the dumpster a couple of nights ago Saudis figured I'd stuff it in my pocket keep it there for a few nights just a big stick it emerald sticking out of my pocket F&E wouldn't obstruct anything I do which makes me happy it appears to be coming from the baseball stadium fascinating mmm fascinating ooh ooh Mike Pollock is
08:48
great getting yo faster faster busy sanic x boom boom boom fireworks we both want those emeralds but why not be good sports about it and meet me over at the diamond stadium yes your say here's what I love about Eggman he could just gone and taken those emeralds but he said no let's have an entertaining episode where everybody plays baseball for no reason whatsoever it's totally pointless makes absolutely no sense but hey it'll be entertaining thanks Eggman it's friendly game of baseball sounds like a great idea to me
09:18
ah so you're Chuck are you well it's a great pleasure to finally meet you he is I've heard a lot about Chuck does he have to be on our team legitimately funny joke alright see sonic X ask those oh no what if I let the whole team down oh my gosh Chris stop being so Chrissy hmm that's easy for you to say my gosh dog the game was of course the last to be played here at the stadium
09:50
could that be it's the guy but I think we've learned an important lesson about working together I actually they're nothing so here's what I like about Sonic X the cosmetics that's pretty much the best way describing it from a critical standpoint this show is just kind of math for me but this show is just so appealing the anime is one of the best styles that I've seen the Sonic series take it kind of moved into the Game Boy Advance games as well some of the art and the manuals was kind of that same anime style it just seems so fitting and cool the voice
10:26
acting wasn't great but growing up with these four kids voice actors makes me feel like those are the characters voices that was what they're meant to sound like is just kind of ingrained into my brain now even though new voice actors might be a little bit better it just is not the same the plot of a sonic in a human world is actually super entertaining to me not like in the games where it's just sonic versus Eggman in Sonic X we got casual social episodes and more relatable things that took place in the real world the show even had Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 as a stories for some of the episodes so since I grew
10:56
up with those two games as well I felt very at home watching this show and yeah I know everything else is pretty corny and maybe not that well done sometimes but I have such a nostalgia for it at this point so I've got things I love about the show and things that I can enjoy laughing at it overall makes the show completely enjoyable for me above all I just like seeing Sonic and his friends in a casual episode like we saw in know fair ball episodes like that and cruise blues were what I remember liking the most cuz it just had Sonic and his pals being themselves and just funny dialogue and development that is what I
11:26
liked about Sonic X so at this point what more is there to talk about we've looked at the good the bad the Chris what else is there season 3 season 3 aka the meta Rex agha it's very odd to me personally it feels like a whole different series altogether to be honest I still watched and enjoyed it but the mederic saga was kind of not what I expected to see from Sonic X it takes place after Sonic and his pals got back from the human world back into the green hills or mobius or whatever canon
11:58
they're going with for this one at this point I was excited Chris was gone and at this point I was getting more in the mood to some more classic sonic versus Eggman style but and this is a big but Chris came back why just know in the first episode they show Chris and his friends many years later and I mean that could be fine Chris won't whine all the time as he's older his parent issues are over and maybe he'll be more competent nope in a crazy coincidence he transports himself to Sonic's world and ends up the
12:29
same age as he was back when they knew him hooray oh the irony makes for such a so likable I mean they couldn't have him be older all the people who just loved Chris they they wouldn't have the same character just wouldn't be Chris less like with the issues that season run into CAD which now thankfully Chris is downplayed a lot and yeah he is done with his parent issues but they still give him this one plot where he feels useless since he can't do much at all
13:01
which is it that far from the truth I'm sorry Chris I'm really bashing on here anyway he is downplayed like I said so he's overall not much of an issue I mean he's just kind of there now the plot itself is where things got a little bit boring for me Sonic and his friends find this girl named Cosmo if I recall correctly and it's been a while since I saw the show her race was wiped out by aliens called the metrics and now they're coming to destroy Sonic's world and pretty much the entire universe I'm not sure why Sonic and his friends and Chris build a giant spaceship and go
13:33
into space to stop them this actually does sound cool in concept and maybe it's just me being a little more critical by the time that I got to this season but I overall was kind of bored for maybe half of the episodes on one hand you have this new character Cosmo who although she has extremely little personality besides being the damsel in distress tails ends up growing attached to her which makes for a really emotional climax that I won't spoil for you don't worry and that also gives tails a lot more attention and development which I liked using my favorite characters in this show when I
14:03
was a kid there were some pretty funny episodes about the two of them as well like one with team chaotix trying to play matchmaker with them it was corny yeah but it was really entertaining on the other hand almost every other episode that wasn't that kind of plot was very similar go to a planet fight a few metrics fight a big boss matter ex-gay the end that was pretty much a plot for every episode now there were a few episodes that were kind of cool and there was also this subplot where shadows trying to kill Cosmo which was actually genuinely creepy and kept me on my toes and again the season finale was really
14:34
emotional that's coming from someone who can get past the fact that tail sounds like an eight-year-old girl but still so you can see how this season was not what I expected new scenario new plot kind a new feel with the darker more violent episodes I'd say overall the couple episodes that I did like were enough to make me not dislike this season all together it's definitely not my favorite but it's okay and that was it for sonic X anyway there have been so many rumors about a season 4 that was supposed to air but honestly I don't think that's true and I think that ending on the mederic saga was probably a good idea
15:06
donek X to me was about Sonic and his pals guy and Chris living in a human world and that's what I liked about it as a kid I wouldn't mind if they just stopped at season 2 and maybe made the matter X a different series altogether I think if we would have continued past a matter X saga the series would have crashed and burned but much like the for kids company which went bankrupt after a lawsuit a few years later um that's really not funny I apologize for that so Sonic X is pretty much a guilty pleasure it has so many issues and from a critical standpoint it's not that
15:37
great a cartoon but it's just so cool this show is what brought me into the sonic fandom as a kid I loved the action the adventure seeing all my favorite characters a nice looking anime yes it's aunt don't even tell me it's not anime okay anime is just Japanese animation this is anime by definition so don't tell me it's not and of course Sonic and is friends being superheroes in a world pretty similar to mine is it for everyone no heck even most people who watch the Japanese version would say it's really not that great a show but it's just one of those cartoons that
16:08
it's hard to praise but so many people can't help but love anyway I love it for its appeal it's hilarious voice acting the way it introduced me into the franchise and when you have a show that can be so flighting it's so darn cool at the same time you don't really need that much of a reason to love it oh and that theme song gotta go fast that was dope cheesy or not don't let anybody tell you that that sucked because that was that was amazing all right that got my adrenaline going okay we're done now hold on you still haven't watch it in Japanese again I honestly don't care why don't you want
16:45
to watch it you're racist you don't like Japanese Sonic's okay fine lay tail okay that's gonna area cue you Junior so it's just Sonic X in Japanese I don't get it I shut up it's so much better all the things that people have said are true the maturity the dialogue it's a sheer master base wait you never went to school how can you read any of this yeah that is uh that is a good point hey what is up guys Peter here thanks a
