someone scored this animation cel from the opening credits :)

@  Sunnyfruit : (21 May 2019 - 01:00 PM)

I'm fine with a Discord.

@  ShenFNWoo : (21 May 2019 - 06:59 AM)

Go ahead and make one then. It only takes a minute to make. Seems we have to experience it to believe it, so let's go.

@  Quickster : (21 May 2019 - 12:09 AM)

I agree with Shadow; we could use a Discord channel.

@  Wulfsbane : (20 May 2019 - 09:07 PM)

Most Social media is a mistake.

@  furrykef : (20 May 2019 - 08:50 PM)

Twitter is ideal for people with very short attention spans. People with names similar to Ronald Dump.

@  Shadow : (20 May 2019 - 03:52 PM)

I only use twitter to look at nsfw art that got exiled off tumblr.

@  Sunnyfruit : (20 May 2019 - 01:42 PM)

Notification addiction IMHO

@  Ishapar : (20 May 2019 - 01:27 PM)

Never understood the thrill of Twitter. Why do people use it so much when it is basically just a bunch of little "tweets"?

@  Sunnyfruit : (20 May 2019 - 01:21 PM)

Anyway nothing's worse than Twitter.

@  Sunnyfruit : (20 May 2019 - 01:20 PM)

But as an archiving medium you can't do better. I'm happy to have read both the notes Hurst left and the elaborate posts made in the heat of the moment, something that couldn't have happened on a simple static website+discord.

@  Sunnyfruit : (20 May 2019 - 01:19 PM)

I prefer forums but they aren't made for small talk. Given that not much happens about SatAM they aren't the best way to communicate

@  Shadow : (20 May 2019 - 01:12 PM)

Skype completely shat on everything good MSN messenger had going for it. I miss the custom smilies and nudge functions, plus the avatars that were bigger than a thumb print on screen were nice...

@  Ishapar : (20 May 2019 - 12:36 PM)

I used to use skype a lot until Microsoft made it necessary for you to have a Microsoft account to use Skype. That stinks.

@  Shadow : (20 May 2019 - 12:23 PM)

Certainly better than what Skype turned into.

@  Ishapar : (20 May 2019 - 11:15 AM)

Good clarafication, ShenFNWoo. It's pretty much the reason why I don't see the need to go after all these social sites and apps. If people want to communicate with each other, they will do so with what we currently have.

@  chief : (20 May 2019 - 10:08 AM)

Discord will probably take over. Ive gotten use to it now and use t for everything but our irc

@  furrykef : (20 May 2019 - 09:57 AM)

We've still got an IRC channel... but yeah, we might switch to Discord.

That's funny. Sonic Boom didn't feel like the Simpsons. In fact, it was way too family-friendly to be anything like the Simpsons.

 to even Comedy Chimp essentially serving as the show's equivalent of Krusty the Clown.

 

Let me guess, Comedy Chimp's character is a metaphor for how "business is where dreams go to die", right? My reason for thinking this? In one episode, two kids see a picture of him in his younger days and comment how he has a 'hint of hope in his eyes', implying that jobs crush dreams (but you don't need jobs for that).

Well, to be fair, the OVA wasn't produced by Toei Animation. Rather, it was Studio Pierrot - the guys behind the animation of "Yu Yu Hakusho", "Bleach", and "Naruto".

 

Except Naruto's animation is....

For whatever reason, SEGA of Japan doesn’t see any value in the SatAM cast. The same applies to other niche characters from other bygone spinoff continuities - AoStH, Underground, X, Boom, etc. Once their runtimes are spent, they’re pretty much done.

For a long time, the Archie comics were a notable exception because of how long it lasted. But when the series was cancelled, the licensing deal they made way back in the early 90s (which included the SatAM elements) was axed as well. So unless SoJ has a change in heart, it’s doubtful we’ll be seeing those characters appear in any media again.

This also applies to game characters that they deem inappropriate to the current direction. The Classic SEGA cast (Mighty, Ray, Nack, Bean, Bark, Honey, etc.), Cream, Emerl, and possibly Big are all off-limits in the IDW series.

With Sega restructuring again it's possible they may have a change of heart. Rumor has it that Sonic Team is being relocated to the offices in Irving

Well, that still remains to be seen. Last time I've checked, Ian has said that SoJ is deadset on not including any characters from the previous TV series. So I doubt we'll be seeing the SatAM cast appear in the main comics any time soon.

 

However, there might be another opportunity. The SatAM cast may be prevented from appearing in the main IDW series for the time being, but with the recent announcement of other comics being released in the forthcoming year, there's a possibility that they may get the chance to return in another series - either a continuation of the Archie reboot continuity or maybe the SatAM series. Who knows?

 

Granted, this is only speculation, but it is something to consider.

Update: In BumbleKast #82, Ian Flynn clarifies that the "not allowed" language isn't accurate; characters from spinoffs are simply unlikely

 

My thoughts:  The fact of the matter is, it sounds like Sega is giving IDW the message that they shouldn't use the Freedom Fighters; so it seems like it amounts to the same thing.

To be fair, even if the SatAM cast do get the chance to appear in the IDW series, would it really add anything to the comic? Sure, it'll be a nice shoutout to the show, but I think that's all it will really amount to.

 

I dunno. By this point, I'm thinking their absence might be for the best.

Considering the sheer number of times people have misconstrued his words, I think it's worth repeating.

Still, the first time or the second I get it, but this many times it's a bit concerning. Yeah people try to twist his words but at the same time he does it to himself by giving people the chance to when he has to clarify himself.

 

I've noticed when he give interviews he does have poor word choicing at times.

The only way SoJ would be interested in the SatAM cast again is if they saw a viable market for them to profit from. And despite Archie keeping them alive they were always eclipsed by the game cast in terms of recognition and popularity. It would take someone from the american branch to do some hard convincing to dig them up and sell them again, although with the Boom cartoon doing well that would also play against the need for digging up older cartoon material.

I think it's safe to say that the FF's legacy and future is in fan's hands rather than Sega's.  I doubt Ian is going to showcase the FF in the IDW with SOJ control over the comics, but it maybe for the better.  I'd rather have good characters with some quality storytelling, and I have come to realize that most big comic franchises will suffer in both areas due to the need to make a long lasting profit.  I'd say FUS is fine with continuing Sea3on in the spirit of continuing the Satam series, and I would back up fan writers that care more about the characters and quality rather than the money aspect of story-telling.


Before honor comes humility.

 

The Most High God created this world we live in, and He created man in His image for Himself.  Whether we like it or not doesn't change the truth nor does it change the consequences.
