I don't really wanna review Sonic X. What about you, Tails? Do you want to? (Tails staring at me bored and pissed) Well...... Sorry Tails, I have to do this anyway. We all know Sonic. He's the badass mascot of SEGA that spawned in the Genesis in the 90's and became a pop culture phenomenon. When news began of a Sonic anime in the works, fans were thrilled with excitement and maybe Sonic can translate well into anime. But then came 4Kids! and...... The results were not pretty. Hated by both Sonic and anime fans, Sonic X was a huge failure among fans of Sonic, read more

Few names in the history of video games have raised controversy and fierce arguments like Sonic the Hedgehog. In the early 1990s, Sonic was almost universally beloved. His games were fast, simple, and fun. They didn't have the massive number of worlds, secrets, and re-playability that Super Mario for SNES had, but they were the best thing on the Genesis/Masterdrive system...other than Rocket Knight Adventures of course. However, since the Sega Saturn came out, Sonic has starred in a lot of REALLY horrible games including: Sonic R, Sonic Fighters, Sonic Shuffle, Sonic 06, Sonic Free Riders, Sonic Boom: the Rise Lyric etc. At this point read more

There's something to be said when a Sonic fan hates a Sonic show so much that they have to write a review on a public website so that other people can see it and (most likely) disagree. But let me say this clearly: I am a huge Sonic the Hedgehog fan and I hate this show.

Why do I hate this show so much? Well, let's compare it to the best Sonic TV Show ever, Sonic SatAM.

Sonic X: well... maybe like, 5 out of 10.
Sonic SatAM: 9/10

Any of you who remember Sonic SatAM know that the storyline was pretty intense while still at the same read more

When I was a kid, I love sonic x to death and praise the dub back when I was watching it every Saturday morning of the 4kids block . But as I got older and starting to use the internet, I come a across many people ranting about 4kids who are the one who dub sonic x. As I start to know more of what they do to anime they got, I realize how much of my childhood I wasted. Now that I got that out of the way, lets me say that sonic x is a decent anime but didn't reach its potential when read more

4KIDS screwed the U.S dub up horribly,i reccomend the uncut verson if you want the full diolouge and story.season 1 was a litle rough around the edges,but it was just starting,i likednhow the characters sticked to their personalitys in the games.but ii have one problem with this anime...its name...chris thorndike!the devil chiled,i really did not like this character.he was verry verry annoying.i liked season 2 the best,it had game based arks,like sonic advnture,and sonic adventure2,also a sonic battle ark.and thare were no filler episodes between SA1&SA2 arks,and at the end of the read more

Sonic X was a favorite of mine back in the day. When the show aired on Saturday mornings, courtesy of the CW4kids, the Sonic fan in me tuned in every Saturday to watch the adventures of Chris Thorndyke and his stranded alien, animal, anthropomorphic friends. What Sega hoped to do what this series was popularize the brand by conveying Sonic's video game adventures in a television format.

Does it work? Sort of . . . It gets some things right but some things wrong.

Story (7/10): Season 1 is a mostly episodic set-up that details the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (I mean, Sonic and Chris). read more

It's the best because the characters and story are the greatest ever written. If you hate this show you are probably lying. The plot is simple yet is the most enjoyable thing I've ever experienced. The conflicts feel very real and are not forced. This show is the pinnacle of entertainment and can never be topped. This show is easily the reason I am still alive to this day and continues to give me joy with each rewatch. Some people may be turned off by the fact that it's based on a video game, but trust me, this show will not disappoint you.

Utterly a masterpiece, I'm an epic gamer so of course I understand the greatness of an epic gamer anime.

The story was really empowering, watching as a cast of outsiders try to blend in and become accepting with the society they've been thrusted into due to an unfortunate incident. They go from becoming outsiders to becoming heroes, and just thinking about it makes me shed a tear at how masterfully the story and structure was handled, I never felt like I wasted a single minute.

The animation rivals that of the greatest shows, with a musical number that makes me cry with how wonderful the instrumentation and read more

This is by far the worst animated adaption in the whole entire Sonic series, this series really had not effort put into it whatsoever, probably due to Sonic not doing well in japan at all. But to me, that brings up the question, why does this thing exist in the first place?
Story - 3/10
In terms of the series plot, well... it does not really have a plot until later in the series, the first 26 episodes of this is just basicly Sonic and freinds going on an adventure to find the Chaos emeralds to get back hime after being transported to earth. After the first read more

A Disappointing Review of Sonic X

Story/Characters (5/10): Lets talk about the characters first. Sonic, the blue, funny and fast hedgehog, is the main protagonist of this show. He is the hero, the knight in shining armor, the... okay lets just skip his intro. We all know who Sonic is so there's no need to explain his background. He appears in a lot of videogames and is the mascot character of Sega. In this show he is portrayed as a cool, cocky and fast character. He is headstrong and always runs before he thinks. His goal is to stop Dr. Eggman from obtaining the Chaos Emeralds.
Dr. read more

I have only watched up to episode 20, I will update later when needed. This review might also contain some spoilers which I apologize for.
I will admit right here and right now that I dislike video games and find no use for them; as a result, I have never played any of the Sonic the Hedgehog video games. I have only started watching this anime was because my friends are addicted to Sonic, they have played all the games, watched all the series, and more. This anime is obviously recommended for younger viewers; however I do believe some people forget that. I believe the other read more

Sonic X. what can i say about this show: This is one of the shows that are so bad that they're actually good. As a fan of Sonic, this show is less enjoyable than the games. the characters are bad, and the voice acting is not great. especially the English dub. The story is also nothing special the only thing i like about the show is its English theme song which became a meme. Sonic X turns out to be a good anime but with bad parts if you want a great Sonic cartoon, there's the sonic the hedgehog cartoon from 1991 (Not AOSTH).

Sonic X began as an ordinary Anime for kids in its first half.

Simple created episodes where Sonic helps the people on earth and slowly becomes considered a hero in society.

The characters were all pretty good and thoroughly introduced, which gave the viewer the certain feel of commitment.

While the plot wasn't mainly focused in the first half, most episodes were entertaining and gave someone a better view on the whole Sonic Universe. All in all a comfy procedure.

The comedy might not be for everyone, but it isn't bad.

Then, when the second half began, a lot changed. The show was given a whole new setting and read more

Okay, this is my first ever review on here, so this may really suck... But here we go.

First let me say that I'm not even going to bother with the 4Kids dub. The dub was so terrible that it's one of the biggest reasons why I regret ever watching this. I'm going to focus on the original Japanese version as much as I can and just pretend that the 4Kids dub never existed. Everyone knows how much 4Kids ruins anime. But with that out of the way, let's get started with the actual review.

This was one of the very first anime series I remember loving read more

Sonic X is based on the two games for dreamcast and Gamecube at least for the first part of the anime. Then end up going to space towards the end. The Story really boring. If You aren't a hard core sonic fan you won't enjoy this anime. However this anime is not complex at all so even your average joe can enjoy it.

Art: The art work is decent you can still have some amusement by looking at the characters. The art work on tails and amy are great they have really improved.

Sound: I can say the anime does have good english dub the jp read more

I grew up loving Sonic the Hedgehog shows and my favorite was Sonic the Hedgehog and friends with Sally Acorn and the gang. This is not that show. This turned into a sad little piece that 4 kids decided to dumb down and destroy. I wish this was redubbed like they did for One Piece where it was redubbed with better voices and actually whole, not cut up into strange looking segments.

Now the story line is kind of well done, in the idea that it is pretty consistent though it became full of fillers and monster a day type of story. The characters personalities read more

Sonic X is an anime that's based off of Sonic Adventure, originally released for the Sega Dreamcast. The anime is about Sonic and friends trying to stop Doctor Ivo Robotnik (Or just simply Eggman). While fighting him, Chaos Control happens, sending Sonic & Co. from the planet of Mobius to Earth. While running across Station Square, Sonic lands in a pool, and a young boy named Christopher Thorndyke goes to rescue him.
As the plot goes on, Sonic meets some of his friends, such as Cream the Rabbit and Miles "Tails" Prower, also meeting a long-time rival, Knuckles the Echidna. It's from there that the read more

Ever since I was a young kid I enjoyed playing Sonic The hedgehog games. They were not only fun, but something that simply drew me in was the link you'd create with some of the characters. Sonic X is not exactly that kind of anime. For hardcore fans of the series like myself, it is without any doubts something you have to watch, but if you aren't, then you might be disappointed.

The plot of the story, or should I say storieS since Sonic X is splitted in 3 segments, each covering different arcs. The first arc was a bit painful, a slice-of-life style that just read more

Don’t take this review seriously, this is like my second time reviewing something and let me tell you, I’m not good at this at all lmao. Anyhow let’s begin;
I rewatched some episodes and it really took me back. The story isn’t perfect although having this as a childhood anime and rewatching it makes me feel like I have the mind of a child again to the point I just can’t hate it or call it “bad” yk? Especially since this one was one of my first anime’s.
Story is pretty okay it really isn’t the best but it’s not the worst either. I wish there was read more

My first review and it's the insu-I MEAN SONIC X!Well,let me begin but please forgive me if this review sucks.

Okay,I just want to say,I don't hate Sonic X completely and it is not the worst anime ever.It's just a bad anime.I just went out there.

Story 7/10
To be honest,Sonic X started out...Horrible when it came to story but as soon as Season 2,Japanese version,came out,I was interested in the anime.It was good but if there was no Sonic games already,I would have enjoyed the story but it wasn't very good compared to the games.Season 3 was very interesting,though.I really liked Cosmo and Chris became a TAD read more
