When Dr. Eggman (Robotnik in the US version) holds the president and his daughter hostage, Sonic must comply to the evil scientist's demand of going to Eggmanland to stop Black Eggman and deactivate the city's generator before it reaches critical mass. Little does Sonic know that it's a trap to activate Hyper Metal Sonic, a robot counterpart built by Eggman to destroy our hero.

I think most people out there are acquainted with the little blue hedgehog known as Sonic, he has been a popular character in both America and Japan for years. He has also stared in 2 OVA titles combined to make one movie, and while its not perfectly made, it shouldn't let down the Sonic or anime fans out there.

Story: 6/10
Works well enough, basically its up to Sonic to stop an evil robot called "Metal Robotnik," though Metal Sonic is actually the primary villain here. It keeps things all around balanced as Sonic first starts out relaxing at the beach, then later is battle his way read more

And now for another installment of Lawlmartz rips your childhood.

"Shut up, Tails!" - Sonic

Oh Sonic. Sonic, why will Sega not let you die? Sonic. The Blue Blur. Coldsteel the hedgeheg. Sanic. Sonichu. The list goes on and on- abominations born of a corpse thrown in a shallow grave, dug up time and time again to be paraded around with a new video game installment that makes "a new low" an understatement, every time. I played Sonic the Hedgehog '06, and dear GOD was it bad. Underscored by bestiality, plagued with terrible controls, and a plot so damn awful that I couldn't have shit a worse read more

I'm a Sonic fan, and I have been for a long time, but to be honest, I didn't really like this, and here's why-

Story: The story for the Sonic OVA/Movie is just like any other Sonic franchise, Sonic has to stop the villains no matter what cost. The story was very strong. You have Sonic and Tails at the beginning looking out for villains when they stop into Robotnik. Apparently Robotnik has "captured" the Mayor and his daughter. Suddenly, a robot named Black Eggman (or Metal Robotnik in the dub) appears in Eggmanland (or Robotropolis in the dub), and Sonic then goes to defeat the read more

No doubt, if you like sonic, WATCH THIS NOW!

Story is good and it gets to the point, no dragging everything along, Fast action form your favourite blue hedghog.

This is a really old cartoon due to it's age i gave it a 6 out of 10, because when it was made the animation wasn't bad, it's fair animation for it's age. An old classic.

Decent sound, unique voices, music went well with the high speed action.

What's expected of Sonic and knuckles 3? And sonic the hedgehog TV series Sonic: Underground from the 1990's, similar characters, unique traits as always.

I enjoyed this and think it is something I read more
