Sonic X Stamp by TheKnightOfTheVoid Sonic X Stamp by TheKnightOfTheVoid
Yes, I'm a fan of Sonic X. So sue me.

Personally, I don't really care for the American Sonic cartoons from the 90s (AoStH, SatAM, and Underground). I find them to be overrated, especially SatAM (I don't like the character designs, and the entire premise doesn't interest me at all). And I doubt I'm going to change my mind on that.

But do I have anything against people liking those shows or preferring them? HELL NO. If people like those shows for what they are, I can totally respect that.

Though I have to say, SatAM has some of the most screwed-up fans I've ever seen. The Sonic fanbase as a whole is already screwed-up, but some SatAM fans I've seen just take the cake! To them, I've already spoken heresy just by saying I like Sonic X.

Sonic X is definitely not a perfect show, but I feel it gets more hate than it deserves, and here's a few reasons why:

1. It's closer to how the games are (at least the modern games). Many of the same SatAM fans who complain about Sonic X are the same people who hate every Sonic game that came after Sonic 3 & Knuckles.
2. Chris Thorndyke. I'm not a fan of Chris, either, but hating Sonic X all because of him is just plain stupid if you ask me. I don't even find him to be THAT bad of a character, anyway.
3. The 4Kids dub. For anyone who hates the 4Kids dub, I agree 100% that it was badly done (especially since they removed character deaths). But looking at every other dub 4Kids did (especially One Piece), they were actually MERCIFUL to Sonic X by comparison.

I like Sonic X since it does one thing that the American cartoons NEVER did: adapting the storylines from some of the games. And since I'm a fan of the Sonic Adventure games, I was especially glad that they were the ones that received adaptations.

Also, even though I dislike the 4Kids dub, I actually think some of the voice cast was well-chosen. I used to be a hater of the 4Kids cast, though I've come to appreciate the works of Jason Griffith (Sonic and Shadow), Dan Green (Knuckles), Lisa Ortiz (Amy), and others over the years. My favorite has always been Mike Pollock as Eggman (and I'm glad he's still around).

That's pretty much all I have to say about Sonic X. Again, if anyone prefers the American cartoons, I'm not against it. But please don't attack people for preferring Sonic X or even liking it at all.

Feel free to comment here, but be warned, I will NOT tolerate stupidity. If you disagree with me, that's fine, but BE RESPECTFUL about it. If you respect my opinions, I'll respect yours.

The only thing I really disliked was the setting. Why would you, sitting on a world as fantastic and magical as Mobious, choose to set your story primarily in the 'real' world.

I think it would be slammed a lot less if Mobious got more screen time.

Mobius isnt canon to the games so no point. Sonic is a hedgehog not a mobian. Sonic x was based on the games

I'm almost certain the instruction booklet of the original game mentions Mobious.
*This is where I stopped to look it up*
Hmm you're right, it was not mentioned in the original games, just world building for the extended universe. Neet.
It is worth noting that there is at least one game where the setting is referred to as 'Mobious' Sonic Spinball.

Yeah in spinball but spinball wasn't made by sonic team. It was based around aosth and satam not the main canon games.

To be fair, I could see a Sonic series set on Earth if they put more emphasis on how humans would react to the presence of an alien species (the Mobians) on Earth.

I've never hated the dude either. I think he's hated because of his gets more bit more screen time than the main characters.

One thing that does bother me is from what I’ve seen, Cosmo is getting hate as well. ESPECIALLY the Taismo thing. And it’s basically only because Cosmo is from Sonic X, just because it’s related to Sonic X Doesn’t mean it sucks.

....eh I always thought they didn't put that much characters in the show looking back. I wish they have at least made Metal Sonic a body gaurd-type character, and not making Decoe and Bocoe and Bukkon like that. That, and I wish they at least incorporate the one time characters like Fang, Bark, and Bean. Evenly certain characters from the Archie Comics. (I kinda want to see Scourge and other ones)

Oh, and Chris is pretty much a mediocre character with reasons obvious so.

But with Metal, I wished they made a Sonic Heroes storyarc like they had made with the others. It would be cool to see his "Neo" form. Ironically, the closest thing will ever get to him in X is #40 from the archie comic tie-in.

I can relate. By the time i tell some other Sonic fan that i like Sonic X, they're either making a fucked up list about why i shouldn't like it, or they tell me that i know nothing about Sonic, if i like this show, which i don't think they have any right to, because Sonic X focuses alot more on how the characters originally act, and is closer to the game than the ones in the U.S. I've also seen fanboys of the american Sonic cartoons bashing people for simply liking Sonic X. Nevertheless, i'm glad that i saw this thread today, thanks for posting it. Sonic X is great!

I think it was a bad Show.
Chris was so fucking stupid and Tails was so fucking weak and slow.
That was not the real Tails.

I just love Cream in this Show.She was so adorable.

I originally watched about 40 episodes of the 4Kids version, and I found it BORING. There was so much pointless dialogue, and lots of fights about nothing, and the human characters (especially Sam and Chris) were ANNOYING! I then stopped watching it, but one day I accidentally came across an episode in the original Japanese version (with subtitles). Before I knew it, I found myself watching the Japanese Sonic X episodes religiously (even today). I find the original so much better. Every character seems to have a place and says something meaningful that in one way or another contributes to the story. Stories from actual Sonic games (particularly the Adventure games) are incorporated into the Sonic X story, and they add details that help explain some things about characters that the games left a mystery. The episodes don't feel like a "waste" like the 4Kids episodes did, and the characters aren't annoying nor idiots! I also noticed that 4Kids always cut out about 1/3 of each episode, ALWAYS the good part of it. I'm sticking with the original from now on :)

Season 1 was so repetitive, I think after Season 2 it got s bit more interesting

Not only that Chris and Sam came off as annoying, majority of the humans were. They acted pretty dumb XD and clumsy

XD it was boring, yeah and nothing really going on. I mean pretty much just the cast going around doing simple tasks. I guess if you count Perfect Chaos as the major event, but the event wasn't even great. Just practically Super Sonic destroys it in one hit.

Gets a bit more interesting after Shadow appears

He was way too emotional for my liking lol, he made scenes too dramatic. Way too attached to Sonic, he acted like Sonic was better than everyone else like his human friends. His only main use was just providing them shelter on Earth, other than that, he didn't really do much but just tagged with them and created a bunch of dramatic scenes. Nothing really popped out about him either, as far as being interesting in character
