I do have a lot of nostalgia for Sonic X but I will admit the first 2 seasons at least are pretty mediocre. My scores would be 6/10 for seasons 1-2, 8/10 for season 3 mostly because of Cosmo. I teared up at the last episode when I first saw it in Japanese. English version absolutely butchered it.
And yea since Sonic X was my first exposure to the franchise, Cosmo will always be a member of the main cast to me. Same with Cream even if they keep not putting her in new games. I would rather take a new anime or game but yea if Blaze or Cream end up appearing in the live actions movies I will for sure watch them.

On that note I ended up reading some of the IDW comic since the last time we spoke and I've very much been enjoying it so far (at around chapter 30 when they beat the metal virus). I love how they're utilizing all the old characters and giving them time to shine instead of Sonic soloing everything. Definitely feels like the writers understand and respect the characters. Blaze's portrayal is great. They hyped up how strong she is with the Sol emeralds even though there's excuses for her not to immediately use them. She is still cool, proud and graceful but has learned to rely on her friends when she needs to. Cream is such a treasure trying her best to cheer people up and be useful. And Gemerl is just a total boss. Priority 1: Cream's safety. Priority 2: Everything else. Fucking love him.

That anime's premise sounds pretty unique. Isekai protagonist returns to Japan? Might have to check it out.

Sonic X was probably my overall favorite show when I was a kid and I watched the entire thing on TV including the Metarex saga multiple times back then. A few years ago I gave the series another look and decided to try out the Japanese dub then realized how big the changes were.
I don't really have many complaints about the voices themselves but 4Kids censored out any potentially "mature" themes like characters dying, random violence like Amy wanting to hit people with her hammer because she's mad at Sonic, and stuff like this Cream scene :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Bnq5pFSj5s&t=105s

But yea season 3 had some pretty serious and deep themes with the Metarex so it's good you're at least watching that one subbed. Cosmo's definitely one of my favorite Sonic characters even though she's anime only. Her relationship with Tails was also very well done. Not sure how detailed your spoilers were but the ending wasn't bad even though it was depressing.
Chris was a horrible character (a bit better in season 3) and probably one of my biggest complaints about the series. They should have made Helen (wheelchair girl) the protagonist or something.

I never got too big into the Sonic games as a kid but over the years I did play Sonic Advance 2 and 3, Sonic Heroes, Sonic Battle and Sonic Riders. Very recently I also played Sonic Rush and Blaze the Cat was really cool. I'd love to see her in a future anime or something. They are making those live actions films and stuff like Sonic Boom but those only have the super OG characters so I'm not too interested. If Blaze, Cream or even Cosmo were in it I'd watch for sure. I have heard good things about those IDW comics but haven't read them yet.

I actually really like the 3rd season of Sonic X. Cosmo definitely gave the series something special past (badly) adapting the old game stories. So are you watching the Japanese dub? Turns out the English version changed a lot of the story and also cut out important scenes aside from the standard 4kids censorship.

You like Doubutsu no Kuni so I instantly like you as well haha nice to meet you! Very good taste in games, too. And I'm open to any recommendations of anime/manga you may have, based on my favourites and whatnots.
vegeta8639 Oct 25, 2021 8:42 AM
I kinda enjoyed the first few episodes of Sotsu just because Rena was doing stuff but the plot there still wasn't exactly good. After that it just felt like a bunch of unncesesarry recap/filler until the last 2 episodes. I guess in Gou at least it was nice seeing some of that future stuff of how the characters are doing after the main series. Like Rena and Keiichi continuing the club after Mion graduates. I definitely wish we got a sequel focused more on that than this weird Eua and evil Satoko split personality stuff.

As far as the ship is concerned it's more like they're pushing the Bern x Lambda thing than Satoko and Rika because Satoko's split personality kinda gave the body back at the end and went to "look for Rika" probably in a different story or something. I'm sure Ryukishi is trying to do this whole meta thing which maybe some Umineko fans will eat up but I did not think it was very well handled at all.
Akasaka's kinda married so I don't think it would work out. Rika had some decent chemistry with Keiichi in Miotsukishi at least. But more likely she'd find someone new if she were to start dating.

I also prefer the first season of Nanoha and I still haven't read the Vivid manga which is probably the next Nanoha related thing I should do.
I just happen to really like Einhart and overpowerer lolis fighting in MMA matches seems like a cool concept but it's definitely a pretty big shift from the earlier Nanoha seasons.

I finished the 3rd season of Dog Days maybe 3 weeks ago so it's still pretty fresh in my mind. I mean I guess it depends on what you're watching for. First I'll say it's not a "complete" series by any means. There is a plot in the first season but after that it's like they didn't know what to do with the show anymore so it's just a bunch of random shit happening, usually not with much significance. 3rd season was a bit better with this at least but again it's left very open ended. There's no romantic or plot conclusion to speak of.
There's the main girl https://myanimelist.net/character/39498/Millhiore_Firianno_Biscotti who happens to be pretty good which is a rarity in anime these days and is why I watched this to begin with. She has some good shipping moments with the protag in the first season but their relationship really doesn't progress much after that. This is a harem so there's a bunch of stupid drama in the second season with his childhood friend and some other girls but again nothing much comes of it.
Last thing I should mention that might be confusing is in the other world they have these "wars" where nobody dies and there aren't actually any consequences to losing so really they're more like sporting events. Took me a while to fully comprehend this because half the time they're taking them super seriously and other times they're acting like it's no big deal. It's nothing like in No Game No Life Where they're actually losing territory or something important like that and you can refuse a challenge if you want.

I'm not sure I was being too concise but overall I would recommend the first season and if you like it maybe keep watching for the characters.
Romance wise don't expect too much but there is some. I will say the pink haired dog girl is pretty cute and she has some song performances with Horie Yui voicing her which were pretty okay.
vegeta8639 Sep 21, 2021 7:34 AM
Yea that's probably a good idea. The first few episodes were kinda passable since they were very Rena focused but even those has many glaring problems. After that it's been pretty horrible. Especially the last few episodes which drag on events that could have been shown in 5 minutes instead of taking up a whole episode or didn't need to be recapped at all. The stuff that actually is new plot details is probably the worst of all like Satoko's split personality and anything Eua related. She's just there because the plot needed a new villain, and she's evil and invincible because the plot says so. Some of the laziest writing I've ever and that's saying something.
vegeta8639 Sep 16, 2021 5:07 PM
So how are you liking Sotsu so far? 2 episodes left and they ended on the exact same cliffhanger from 20 episodes ago XD
But they did make sure to give Satoko a split personality so they could easily redeem her character at the end which is what really matters.

Hey how are you? Hope you've been doing well! Can you fill out this quick survey? All you have to do is check the boxes for whatever series you recommend. Thanks :) https://forms.gle/Ytczt2ypYsci6s7V6

Well you can't just break up instantly when there is a 10 year history and you were planning a wedding and you have a mortgage lol. Not to mention you just turned 31 and want to have kids and the guy who cheated on you has a really big penis and you love him etc.

A fresh start would be cool if we could both go back 10 years but in 2021 and at our age its slim pickings out there. Better the devil you know than the devil you don't.

Anyway, the therapy is going well for me and we are together right now but she is worried that I might do it again. I really don't have any desire to do that anymore. I just knew that I couldn't get married while harboring this secret. Now that it's out I'm able to move forward again.

You're doing well keeping up your video a week thing by the sounds of it! Consistency is good.

Fights in relationships are normal. That's just how it goes for everyone unless they are at the early stages or the settled stage after being together for like 15 years and knowing each other thoroughly.
