    oh nice! sounds cool! Maybe I did see some of that one too and forgot! Like I said it's been a long time since I watched any!

    OH, you mean the Adventures of Sonic The Hedgehog, the more kid oriented cartoon that spawned the infamous Pingas meme!

    Even though i don't watch it since i'm a bit too old for AOSTH, I like the Sonic Says portions that play afterwards.

    "Hey, Dumb-Bot! Didn't anyone ever tell ya not to play with matches?"

    SATAM was the more dark show, with Sonic helping the Mobius Freedom Fighters in a world where Robotnik basically won.

    tbf I haven't seen any of these since I was a kid, I would love to see the siblings in a game tho tbh, having watched the show back then.
    The other Sonic one I watched was the one where robotik had those minions with the rooster like robot one? Idunno if that's SATAM or w/e!

    I've seen snippets of those shows. X is a bit on the kiddy side but i like the tie-ins with Sonic Adventures 1/2, as well as some guys from Heroes. I should know because my younger brother saw the whole show and i walked in on a few episodes. The humans are pretty ok in that series, too. With the second show i assume you mean Sonic SATAM with Sally and Antoine, where Robotnik won and everything sucks and the theme song slaps? I've also seen some of it and i really like Sally's character. It's such a shame that none of the SATAM characters were used in a mainline game since they have so much potential.

    Sonic Underground is so laughably bad that it's hysterical, no offense, of course. I once saw Vinny from Vinesauce react to the god awful animation and he died laughing because of it. The fact that Sonic has biological siblings and a royal mother is too bizarre of a concept for me to get on board with. At least the designs of Sonia and Manic are ok enough and i don't hate them on their own. If they weren't related to Sonic then it would be cool to see them in a mainline game too!

    yeah I've been meaning to get it on switch, I just already have a huge backlog on there haha, I'll keep an eye out for the physical on sale!
    I used to love watching Sonic X, Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Underground when I was a kid, X is technically anime I think :P did you watch any of those?

    I've heard good things about Heroes even though i've never played it, and i like how there are 3 characters at once that you can control. E-123 Omega is a real favorite of mine, i love his dialogue, although all of the teams have great chemistry with each other. Even though they had to resurrect a certain character because they liked him that much (that's major spoilers for SA2 so i won't go into detail about who it is)

    What? You haven't played Mania yet? GO PLAY MANIA! It's incredible! Just make sure you get Sonic Mania Plus, since it includes the extra stuff added later on. It brings back everything that made the Genesis titles amazing. A real downside is that most of the Zones are returning from 1, 2, CD and 3K. There are only, like, 4 new Zones, but they're all pretty good. Except for the last area. That one sucks.

    I loved Heroes too, I played that on the OG xbox, and the advance titles on the GBA. I've heard really good things about Mania too, been meaning to eventually try that!

    I ALMOST finished Rush, but i was so fed up with the Super Sonic exclusive boss that i just gave up. Sonic Rush could have been so much better if the flaws it has didn't outweigh the good portions.

    But, there are a LOT of Sonic titles i like in the meantime. Sonic 3K will always be the No.1 best Sonic game to me for all time, although i do enjoy a good ROM hack, too.

    I'll rewatch it one of the days, defo one worth going back to.
    I loved Rush and the OST, don't think I ever finished it tho, although I played both campaigns quite a lot. I played it on my DS when I was a kid back in 05/06. Another thing probably worth revisiting! (it's been over a decade since I played it! haha)

    Got that right! In fact, Daft Punk and Toei worked together to make the film. I highly recommend seeing it at least once, the music slaps, the wordless storytelling is great, the animation is fire, it's truly out of this world!

    Speaking of good music on a different note, i saw you post Sonic Rush related stuff in the music rating thread and i'm actually playing through Rush currently. (i finished Sonic's story and am currently going through Blaze's) I can vouch for most of its content and say that it's at least a good Sonic game. On the one hand, the gameplay is ridiculously solid and i love how you can trick in the air to fill the Boost meter. On the other... there are a LOT of flaws that hold the game back. Case in point, all of the random BS death pits and HORRIBLE bosses. The music slaps hard, though. I honestly listen to What U Need all the time.

    yeah the one that was used & popularised in the daft punk vid? I've seen it some years ago, can't remember much about it tho!
    I'm about to hit 600 completed on MAL lmao, so you could say I'm pretty deep into anime!
    It's probably best to start with stuff that is objectively praised, aside from it's anime status like Akira, Ghibli, Your Name etc. As it's pretty safe bet you'd like some of those and could expand on your taste and choose shows from there. Ofc it's only worth watching whatever interests you.
    Personally I like all the "overblown" series you mentioned, the main issue when it comes to them (and a lot of anime that get popular) is the fandoms.

    Don't you worry, i'll probably find something that i like eventually!

    I dunno, i don't really know why i can't quite click with anime. I think there was a discussion one time that i saw where someone was talking about how anime usually gets a bad rap, and i can definitely see why. A lot of, shall we say, "Normies" look at anime and usually see the bad parts of it. Case in point, hentai/body pillows and weebs. It's usually frowned down upon for that reason. I think a lot of the true anime fans who like the medium because of the animation/storytelling are mashed into the group of crazies.

    Plus, some big anime names (DBZ, BNHA, AOT, etc.) are either overblown and extremely overrated, or they're genuine bangers. I've never really seen a true anime TV show before, but i HAVE seen a movie called Interstella 5555. Perhaps you've heard of it?

    No problem! A shame none of them seem for you! Love all of those games!
    Good luck finding some new 3DS games!

    Well, if it isn't .hack! I've seen you around some of the threads lately!

    Thanks for the game list, but i'm not very big into Dragon Ball or anime in general. I tried Bravely Default and i didn't like it very much, and Friday Monsters doesn't really interest me. But again, thanks for the recommendations! I appreciate you seeking me out just for that!

    Hey I saw you post that you're looking for new 3DS games to play. Idunno if you like Dragon Ball but both the DB 3DS games are pretty good, especially Fusions.
    I'd also recommend Bravely Default & Attack of the Friday Monsters (digital only).
    Idunno if you played any of those.
