GeekNights Wednesday - Sonic X (2003)

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Sonic X (2003). An anime TV series based on Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog video game series, adapted poorly by 4kids, it's not too bad. In the news, convention "leaks" are always funny, retroactive editing is becoming more and more common, someone leaked the entire 87 minute animatic of the (sadly) canceled Genndy Tartakovsky Popeye feature, and Anime Matsuri remains one of the worst anime cons in the world, and it's spinning off a "dubbing studio" with a known sex pest.

Also as someone who Technically would have been just old enough to avoid the Sonic Orbit, after the original cartoons ended I jumped out of the Sega Camp and got a Super Nintendo at the end of its life. Had the cheaper older games to hold me over allowing me to skip Sony Playstation back in the day.

There is already a retraction of the bulk of the Stranger Things editing news.

You talked about old Sonic but didn’t mention the PSAs!
