Sonic X (ソニックX Sonikku Ekkusu?) is a Japanese anime featuring video game hero Sonic the Hedgehog, partially based on the storylines of the Sonic Adventure series. It was animated and produced in Japan by TMS Entertainment with the partnership of Sega and the Sonic Team. In 2003, 4Kids Entertainment licensed Sonic X for American U.S. licensing in a joint effort between 4Kids and VIZ Media (it was formerly with ShoPro Entertainment before ShoPro and VIZ, LLC merged into VIZ Media) and distributed by FUNimation. It is also shown in Europe, Australia, Israel, Brazil and (except Mexico) Latin America by Jetix, and in Canada by YTV. Originally planned as a 52 episode series which would be inspired by the storylines of the Sonic Adventure series, Sonic X has now expanded to 78 episodes which were shown in Thailand, and France in February and March 2005. As of 2007, the series has supposedly ended its run, although there are rumors that the show may continue (see below). After almost a full season off the air in the US, Sonic X began a "new" run on May 5, 2007, starting with the series' first episode, though it ended with episode 29 on November 17, 2007. It will start yet another run on Toon Disney's Jetix block in the United Kingdom and Ireland, under a TV-G rating. It will be the second 4Kids show to air on Toon Disney, the first being Chaotic.

Plot synopsis

Series 1 (Season 1 and 2)

During what seems to be a routine attack on Dr. Eggman's headquarters to rescue Cream the Rabbit and Cheese the Chao, Sonic and his friends are caught in a massive and mysterious explosion that transports them to what, at first, appears to be another dimension. Separated from his friends, Sonic eventually finds himself in custody of a boy named Christopher Thorndyke, who saves Sonic's life after he nearly drowns in his pool. Chris lives in a lavish mansion, funded by his two celebrity parents, with his inventor grandfather. Chris aids Sonic in locating his friends, and it is not long before Dr. Eggman makes his presence known. As Sonic and Eggman race to collect all the Chaos Emeralds (Sonic wants to use them to get home to his own dimension, and Eggman wants to use them to conquer this new universe), Chris must deal with the mental disorder caused by having parents that are too busy to bother taking care of him. The first 26 episodes focus on Sonic and the other's adjustments to Earth and eventually, all of the Chaos Emeralds are retrieved and the chaos power warped parts of their home planet to Earth (like Angel Island). On the second half, the show focuses on the plots of Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2, and a bit of Sonic Battle. In the end, Chris' grandfather invents a dimensional portal to send Sonic and everything else from his world but before Sonic leaves, Chris kidnaps him because he does not want Sonic to abandon him as he feels his parents did. Eventually, with the help of Sonic, Chris comes to terms with his feelings and Sonic returns to his own dimension. However, Chris vows that one day, he will see Sonic again.

Series 2 (Season 3)

It is six years since Chris let Sonic return to his own dimension. Chris is now nearly an adult, and even seems to have a relationship with Helen. He has been working on repairing his grandfather's dimensional portal. In Sonic's world, a new girl named Cosmo arrives on Sonic's planet, looking for the legendary one who can wield the powers of the seven Chaos Emeralds. Sonic, having been nearly defeated in outer space by a new enemy called Dark Oak, scatters the Chaos Emeralds across the galaxy, in order to prevent Dark Oak from using their power. When Chris uses the dimensional portal, he suddenly finds himself in Sonic's world. His age has regressed all the way back to the age he was when he first met Sonic; however, Chris still has all his memories of the years he spent repairing the dimensional portal. The Metarex commanders in order from left to right: Pale Bay Leaf, Black Narcissus, Dark Oak, Yellow Zelkova, and Red Pine. ...


Chris learns that to Sonic, only six months had passed. During their reunion, Dark Oak and his Metarex Army attack Sonic's planet and steal the "Planet Egg" from it. Without the Planet Egg, all the trees and plants on Sonic's planet wither and die. Sonic and his friends decide that Dark Oak must be stopped, and they venture into space to retrieve the Chaos Emeralds. The Metarex commanders in order from left to right: Pale Bay Leaf, Black Narcissus, Dark Oak, Yellow Zelkova, and Red Pine. ...


This series is similar to Sonic Heroes and Shadow the Hedgehog such as Shadow surviving and being released with memory loss for the former and the common Metarex looking like the common Black Arms for the latter. After many run-ins with Dr. Eggman, and the pursuing Metarex Army, Cosmo's dark secret is eventually unveiled: She has been an unwilling spy for the Metarex all along, and the Metarex themselves are actually part of the same race of autonomous, anthropomorphic plants that Cosmo is of, having twisted and modified their bodies for combat after war overtook their planet. They now must depend on the energy of the Planet Eggs to stay alive. When the Metarex enact a plan that could destroy the entire Universe, Cosmo sacrifices herself in order to save everybody with the help of Super Sonic and Super Shadow; much to the grief of Tails, who had fallen in love with Cosmo during the course of their adventure. It is Tails himself who must kill Cosmo in order to release her power, which would halt the advance of Dark Oak and return him to his benevolent form. Her essence is manifested in the form of a seed, which Tails later cultivates. Sonic Heroes ) is a video game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. ...

With the Metarex destroyed, Eggman builds an invention that sends Chris home and Chris accepts, willing to leave all his friends to return home. While in Eggman's teleporter capsule on his way to his home dimension, he sees Sonic running below the teleporter. Chris begins crying, and then the machine disappears, supposedly sending Chris back to his own world. Soon thereafter, Dr. Eggman revives his previous rivalry with Sonic. This rivalry, however, is more light-hearted, as if he revived it just for excitement's sake.


Series 3 (Season 4) rumors

TMS Entertainment had intended to air Season 3 in Japan in the future,[2] with "more than 78 Episodes" listed.[3] The final episode in the series was advertised as a Season finale, with various unresolved cliffhangers (such as the whereabouts of Chris, Shadow, and the flower pot). 4Kids Entertainment, however, claimed that the show has indeed ended its run.

In late 2004, production sketches, model sheets, storyboards and episode scripts of a supposed Series 2 began surfacing. Many dismissed them as a fan-made hoax as neither Sega nor TMS has officially announced continuing Sonic X beyond the original 52 episodes. It was not until early 2005 that Jetix France began to air the 26-episode "Series 2" shortly followed by a Taiwanese station and on September 10, 2005, 4Kids Entertainment began to air "Series 2" calling it "Season 3".

Thematic differences

"Dark" Super Sonic in Sonic X.

One major difference between "Series 1" and "Series 2" is the fact that "Series 2" is considerably darker and more mature in tone, but still retained the light-hearted elements. Several of the characters sustain serious, nearly-fatal injuries, and several characters even die; such as Cosmo and Molly's deaths during the final episodes of "Series 2." In addition, in the final episode, Shadow disappeared as well, and no one was sure of what happened to him. In the Japanese version, however, he is seen as a shadow by Molly's grave (a scene cut out in the 4Kids dub because it referred rather heavily to the subject of death) having placed a pink rose by it. There is no indication that any of the deaths in the series were ever reversed or negated. Image File history File links Darksonic. ... Image File history File links Darksonic. ...

Tie-ins

Comic book series

In September 2005, Archie Comics, publisher of the North American Sonic the Hedgehog comics started a Sonic X comic book series based on Sonic X. According to writer Joe Edkin, the first nine issues will take place in the TV continuity between episodes 32 and 33, which falls between the Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2 story lines.[citation needed] After this, the stories' chronological positions will vary for some time, although in progressively later points in the series. The series is based on the English version, though for the most part fits the continuity established in the original Japanese version. Archie Comics is an American comic book publisher known for its many series featuring the fictional teenage Archie Andrews, Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, Reggie Mantle and Forsythe Jughead Jones characters created by Bob Montana. ...

Toy line

The 4Kids version of the show was backed up by a toyline. The early figures in this line were in fact re-releases of an earlier Sonic Adventure toyline, criticized by many for awkward poses and poor sculpting.[citation needed] The line has currently moved onto more accurate and updated figures. Taking a concept from the popular Marvel Legends toys, one wave presents each of the five characters in it with part of a generic E-Series robot. Fans who buy the whole wave can complete the robot as a 'bonus' figure. Further waves include the re-release of the first wave with the addition of a special keychain, the Space Fighters collection (depicting the characters in science fiction-style armour) and the Chaos Emeralds collection. Recently McDonald's had released a set of Sonic X disk lauchers one with Sonic, one with Tails and one with Knuckles on the lauchers and the disk themselves.[citation needed] Sonic Adventure ) is a video game created by Sonic Team and released on December 23, 1998 in Japan by Sega for the Sega Dreamcast. ...

Further information: 4Kids Entertainment#Editorial practices and controversy

4Kids Entertainment had licensed the series and localized it for a Western audience. Aside from the usual editing that includes replacement of the background tracks and removal of controversial content, the fate of several characters were changed. For example, Maria Robotnik is originally killed aboard the Space Colony ARK, while in the dubbed edition, she is merely captured.[4] This event remained intact in the English language versions of the video games that the anime originated from.[5] Smaller edits include replacing miscellaneous Japanese and English script with incoherent symbols, and the term "Chaos Control" was mistakenly dubbed as the name of Doctor Eggman's base. 4Kids Entertainment (NYSE: KDE) (commonly known as 4Kids) is an American film and television production company specializing in the acquisition, production and licensing of childrens entertainment around the world. ... 4Kids Entertainment (NYSE: KDE) (commonly known as 4Kids) is an American film and television production company specializing in the acquisition, production and licensing of childrens entertainment around the world. ...

Instead of hiring the voice actors from the Sonic games (excluding Deem Bristow, the late voice actor of Doctor Eggman), 4Kids decided to go with their in-house VAs. Mike Pollock, the current voice actor for Eggman, stated during an interview that he was provided sound samples from the games as a reference.[6] Deem Bristow Deem Reginald Bristow (born April 11, 1947 in Eaton, Ohio; died January 15, 2005 in San Diego, California) was an actor and voice actor, his most well-known role was that of Doctor Robotnik in the famous Sonic the Hedgehog series. ...
