I can handle it, but why do you want to delete your account?

@  Lito290 : (24 May 2020 - 09:02 PM)

How does one request the deletion of their account?

@  VHS : (21 May 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I gotta join that then

@  Shadow : (14 May 2020 - 01:17 PM)

Sure is. A lot more lively than here.

@  VHS : (02 May 2020 - 08:31 AM)

Oh shoot there's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 06:58 PM)

It's a disagreement between two people...n judging what goes on in there sometimes that's a very apt description xD

@  John Roberts : (25 April 2020 - 05:34 PM)

What's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 04:15 PM)

Activity is spread across forum, discord 'n the site chat room. There's life, it's just hiding under different rocks :D

@  RedAuthar : (25 April 2020 - 04:13 PM)

It's still slow. We ain't dead. Just close

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Wait, I thought this place wasn't dead, it seemed active

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:20 AM)


@  wildfire : (22 April 2020 - 10:57 AM)

Ya know John, I wouldn't be surprised if it was me. At least I'm a bit more active these days

@  chief : (20 April 2020 - 05:24 PM)

Discod stays going pretty good

@  Nex : (20 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Is the Discord busy? Still trying t figure out where most of you monkeys hang out.

@  MauEvig : (19 April 2020 - 07:58 PM)

Well, I'll be chilling on the Discord. :)

@  John Roberts : (19 April 2020 - 12:32 PM)

It's just you, Wildfire. You're killing us mate!

@  wildfire : (19 April 2020 - 09:01 AM)

To be fair, there are more rapid forms of communication these days. The Discord server sees a far bit of attention. I remember the IRC too, but that's dead last I looked

@  MauEvig : (18 April 2020 - 08:10 PM)

A shame. And here I'm finally getting back into the spirit of everything Sonic. Well maybe we just need to liven things up. :)

@  furrykef : (18 April 2020 - 06:38 PM)

The forum's pretty dead at the best of times, really.

If a new comic or TV show were to come up, I think it would be something reminiscent of the games. Think about it: more people play, and are more familiar with, the games than the comic books. It's not what I'd like to happen, but what gonna happen.



I had to agree with this. The more they play, the less SatAM/Comics gets. Besides, the Sonic Games Fans seems to be more hardcore then ever... might be the Sonic X Amy fans I think.


And as for Sonic Boom, let's hope it'd be good. Too bad there's no SatAM characters... but Sega won't allow it. Oh, well!

Well, we don't know that for sure. Not much information has been revealed yet.


I mean, Dr. Eggman wasn't mentioned in the cast, but it can't be a Sonic show without Eggman/Robotnik. Something tells me they're gonna need a bigger cast than just Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy. They may reintroduce older characters, or create newer ones. We'll just have to wait and see.

Alright, this is going to be quite a long list based on experience with the other adaptations but here we go:


1. Good animation and a budget big enough for it (You need good animation for a franchise as quick as Sonic, but you really need the budget for it because otherwise, you end with an incredibly off-model mess like Sonic X. Good God, that show went off-model more than DBZ and Evangelion combined, and that's not even getting into the third season...)


2. No confirmed romantic pairings for the main characters (You can tease or imply them if you wish but no confirmed pairings; otherwise, you risk destroying the entire internet and causing Third Impact!)


3. No adaptations of the games (It's just lazy, it can clash with the setting of the show and just because you adapt a game's plot doesn't make it good; look at Sonic X to see what I mean...)


4. Mythology gags, shout outs to the franchise and continuity nods would be awesome (Not much more to say than that, for once)


5. If the cast is large, say 5-6 characters, make sure they all contribute something to the plot and do interesting things with all of them (This was one of the biggest issues with both X and SatAM in my opinion so but this on the top of the list if you must)


6. Have a three-parter focusing on the Chaotix, if the show's tone is more comedic (Seriously, they were one of the few good things in Sonic X, Japanese or not, so please get them in there somehow)




Fanboyism aside, that's all I've got to say on the matter. Thanks for readin'! :)

Well I'm looking forward to Sonic Boom, it's been said that it's a "pony-esque reboot of the cartoon series" so I can only imagine what that could possibly mean. If it's written similar to MLP then hey I'm all for it, I'm guessing that it's gonna be a much more grounded, AoSTH like show based off the games, with Sonic and Co. having adventures while stopping whatever crazy scheme Eggman comes up with. With the occasional specials like maybe Metal Sonic returning and stuff like that, can't wait to see what'll happen and if they throw things and characters in from other continuities, if so then I know the show will be even more well liked.

I'm perfectly fine with Sonic Boom on whatever form it will take, but what would a more Action/Adventure Driven Sonic Show be like today? We've had Sonic SatAM, Sonic Underground, and Sonic X so far, what would the next one be? I'm guessing it'll be based off the games like how Sonic X was, but NOT how Sonic X did it with Chris and Sonic showing up pretty much only to fight. Now as much as people want a 3rd Season of SatAM, while a direct 3rd Season is very unlikely a show based off of it is possible. However it would probably more based off of the Archie Comic then SatAM, but I'm fine with that. As much as I would LOVE to see a show based off of Sonic The Comic I don't think it'll ever happen unless such a show was directly developed by a European Animation Studio. Now if we are talking not just about a Cartoon, but an Anime that's a different story. Sonic X faired much better in other countries then it did in it's homeland, so it is very unlikely we will see a show like it again. The only way I can really see a Sonic Anime being successful is if you get a big name studio and some talented writers and directors in it, maybe even Gainax? No, I'm not joking, seriously whatever studio does a Sonic Anime they should go BALLS OUT INSANE and turn it up to 11!  Let Sega give a studio (doesn't have to be Gainax, it could be Sunrise, Manglobe, you name it) complete control and just go nuts!!! Hell even if it is not Gainax and there's an infamous "Gainax" Ending I will be so damn happy. xD


Now how would I do a Sonic Show? Well...

Option 1: It would be mainly based off the games with a few things from other medias, most of the stories would be altered retellings of the games with several twists. For one it would be an Over The Top Show that would probably not be rated E for Everyone, some characters would act the way you would expect while others will be pretty different from what you've seen.

Option 2: It's based off of ALL the western interpretations of Sonic with it mainly based off of Sonic The Comic and Archie Sonic, with some storylines based off of the games. It'll start off as you would expect it to if you watched SatAM and then get gradually darker overtime, considering what I have in mind it would be rated T, hehehe...

Option 3: Based mainly off of STC and the Games with a few things from other stuff thrown in, and even then not how you've known them to be. It would be a rough show with an attitude, and I'd say it's for almost everyone...maybe TV Y7FV and even then it would be pushing it a little bit. 

Come to think of it, these are shows I wouldn't really recommend kids as young as 6 to watch, especially the first 2 Options. I don't know why that's the case but maybe it's the push the Series really needs? I mean Sonic isn't Mario and Megaman has had several darker incarnations, I mean SatAM, Archie, and the end of STC can get and is dark but most of it is implied, in small doses, or done off camera, and even then not to the level of Anime dark action shows like say DBZ, Outlaw Star, Gurren Lagann etc. that's sometimes direct. I don't know but that's just me I guess, sounds pretty damn cool though doesn't it? I guess I'm just the kind of guy that wants to adapt a video game series, use every resource the series has under it's wing, and tell a story that I think would be awesome to see!

Seriously, HOW THE HELL did nobody know that Robotnik was evil!? I mean just look at those red, glowing, hellish eyes, oh yeah I can completely trust that guy with my life! *sarcasm*

The great advantage of making a new Sonic cartoon is the potential for proactive fan feedback. I know little about MLP, but I know it has been in some in regards tailored by active fan-feedback. Many good cartoons nowadays are more aware of their audience and encourage and listen to their participation and ideas (Like Adventure Time). A new Sonic cartoon could be great if it follows this engaging approach.
