Eh I thought they removed the Naruto kissing Sasuke scene due to sensitive audience and censors >.>

We all know that Sonic X is produce to pretty much have an animated adaption to the video game series (with its own adjustments and such like adding a bunch of humans interacting with the Sonic crew). Another Sonic anime SHOULD kick ass right?
Well it didn't do as well as it should have been in Japan. Eh I don't know why exactly, maybe it was because Chris hogged a lot of the spotlight from some of the other Sonic characters. Some may even argue that the show is more about Chris than Sonic *shrugs* Sure um Chris may be a little bit overattached to Sonic but it's a result of a lonely childhood and I can relate with that >___>;; Now due to its low ratings in Japan, Sonic X was going to be cancelled/cut short before its intended run of 52 episodes. Oh no D:
In the USA, Sonic X did very well. I don't know how it did that happen. I watched the same Sonic Dub X as most of the kids in America did and I wanted to switch the channels to watch Pokemon/Yu-Gi-Oh! instead. Well anyway, Sonic X was well recieved by enough new Sonic fans and old Sonic fans for 4Kids Entertainment to commision TMS Entertainment/Sonic Team into finishing up the original 52 episodes AND for them to produce Series 2/Season3/Metarex Saga of Sonic X. Wow. Just... wow.
So Japan got the original 52 episodes as planned, but they didn't air the Metarex Saga in Japan even though it was actually dubbed in Japanese. Apparently Sonic X was THAT ill recieved in Japan. I honestly can't think of why except the fact that Chris is present and is somewhat a spotlight hogger. Or maybe because in the first bunch of episodes, Sonic comes off as cartoony and almost a jerk, unlike in most of the games he's in (well the media IS anime, there will be some diferences betwen game and cartoon versions of him). Nah I think it's because of Chris. And that Chris has a black friend and a handicapped girlfriend. Oh wait maybe that's why 4Kids liked Sonic X because it's one of the few anime that actually has minorities as friends to the main human character. Okay I'm rambling again.
Okay I suppose Sonic X did bad in Japan because it's a bit more off the wall than how the video games display the same characters. Sonic X as redone by 4Kids did well maybe because their target audience.... how to put this nicely... more... okay I can't find the right words without making it sound like Japanese kids have higher levels of brainactivity.
I honestly think Sonic X (Japanese) is a good anime if you treat it as an entirely seperate world and not compare it to the game. You know the animation of Sonic X is pretty decent and consistent most of the time. Though I kind wondering what are the real colors of their eyelids are.
So 4Kids are the saviors of Sonic X because they funded for the completion of Season 2 and production of the Metarex Series of Sonic X? Pffff. If they have that much money to throw around, why the hell they couldn't buy the liscence to have "Live and Learn" play during this important scene?!
Yes the person who did Shadow's English voice is still the same VA we have now. Just less angry and idiotic sounding and more emo.
Sonic Dub X has MANY editted scenes whether you want to believe it or not. If it's emotion driven enough to make the average audience shed tears, it must be bad!
There's a lot more edits like Knuckles going to a strip club and Rouge and Shadow going to a bar.... but I can understand those kinds of edits.
Hmmm bonus! Japanese Sonic randomly spewing English words! >8D
(Yes, Japanese Sonic speaking English > Jason Griffith as Sonic. I love it when Sonic says "Come back." and when Sonic is screaming in 6:29-6:38)
By the way, Sonic is strangely obsessed with flowers in the anime. Not crazy obsessed, but he is showed in a field of flowers or holding flower(s) often in Season 1.
too much chris,not enough tails and sonic was the conclusion i came with after watching the first 15 or so episodes.
naruto the anime is pretty bad.
bleach has wayy to many fillars.
and Yu-Gi-Oh GX was so lame.
im gonna have to say Naruto. What other anime has a nickname like narutard
