I'd give anything to let Sega give the blessing on making an uncut redub using the current games' VAs.

@SmartyBoyboy Well maybe if they change the voice of Shadow it would be ok.

@Ichigo341578926 Maybe recast Amy too?

@SmartyBoyboy Maybe. I mainly said Shadow because Kirk Thornton's 1950's gang member esk voice bugged me more.

@Ichigo341578926 Actually, I like Cindy Robinson's attempt to emulate Minnie Mouse EVEN LESS than Kirk's take.

Was this dub THAT bad? I'll admit, it wasn't superior and it was annoying sometimes, but it wasn't awful. I actually liked this dub. I actually love most(not all) of the 4kids sonic voices actually. I actually think they're better than some of the current Sonic voices.

@Joel the Pokekid Which of the 4Kids actors in the Sonic series do you like particular?
Joel the Pokekid
said at 3:23 PM on Sun Mar 13 2016
@Marusero Jason Griffith. I love him as Sonic and Shadow! In my opinion, he does alot better than Sonic, Shadow, and Jet's(even though he wasn't in this show) current voice actors.

@Joel the Pokekid Agreed. Jason had long ways to go with those three characters (especially Sonic, who is my favorite character).

I agree with the people who thought this was one of 4Kids' worst dubs, heck, even as a kid, I hated it. I guess it was still better than that train-wreck that was One Piece's dub, though, if you ask me.

That said, at the same time, Sonic X wasn't a very good show to begin with in my opinion when I watched the Japanese version, 4Kids' didn't really change much with this Series other than with their generic music replacement and silly paint edits, but what I find low quality about their version of Sonic X was the voice cast and direction-- that really sucked badly as far as the dub goes in my book.

@Dr.Who I do feel most of the voice cast inproved with better ADR Direction in the Video games.

Andrew Rannells is not a very good ADR director.... I won't deny that.

I'm in a minority when saying this i think that Media Blasters should rerun this show with the Japanese soundtrack not the 4kids one, having uncut scenes, having a better settings on arcs, return of the eyecatch cards with fully translated text, remastered animations, modify and perfect the sound effects and much more.

Who's up with this idea? I sure am.

Also, I feel like I'm the only one who feels Indifferent about Chris.

@SteelEthlan Even if that were a halfway-plausible fantasy, I really don't think the franchise as a whole is in any condition for this endeavor to matter in the slightest; it's safe to say that anyone with clout who would be able to do this will turn a blind eye after the Big Roadkill Kiss.

I find Chris as the only anime kid who is not annoying. But I like him better as he gets older.

Wow. Never have I seen such polarized reviews for a movie or show since Man of Steel came out earlier this year...

Actually, I realized that it should be the other way around.

@NCZ I had a REALLY quick run with old Sonic games in my childhood, so apparently I must not have caught up to date with the fanbase at all.

@XxDream Really? I thought this was one of their worst dubs. Pokemon and Kirby: Right Back At Ya were probably their best efforts (Yu-Gi-Oh seemed decent enough but I've never seen the Japanese version to compare).

@XxDream Unless you're a die-hard Sonic fan, I'm assuming you haven't seen Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Kirby Right Back At Ya, or F-Zero GP Legend. Heck, there's also the 2003 TMNT series (which 4Kids worked on as well, though it's not anime).

Next to Sonic 06 and Sonic Genesis, I can say that Sonic X is a downfall of the franchise... At least the 4kids dub, anyway. I remember getting pretty stoked for this as a child when I caught it on Fox Box (what Toonzai was at the time around 2002/2003/2004), and yes, you could say I was a fan... But as I grew older, I realized that 4Kids were brainwashing me.

First off, I don't like how some of the characters are a bit dull in comparison to their game portrayals (Shadow's an exception), second, I recommend the Japanese version because even though I'm not a weaboo, Sonic X is one of the anime shows I will prefer in Japanese (next to Blue Dragon), third, the story elements take place in between Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, Battle, and Advance 3, but altogether, it got a bit butchered here compared to the games. Fourth and last, other than any of the GUN members, Dr. Robotnik, or The President, were much of any of the other human characters necessary??? They were more foil, in my opinion, if anything...

With that said, Sonic X is both mediocre (Japanese) and downright atrocious (4Kids). Sonic Team did have involvement here, and I wished back then that they put more development and all-around thought into this...

One more thing: Nazo is pretty sick, and I wish he were an actual character in the Sonic Universe, and not just a fanfiction.

@Ninjaman15
I agree with most of what you said. The 4kids dub of Sonic X was downright pitiful and poorly executed. I also noticed that around the time the dub came out, the games started to tank (4kids seems to ruin anything they touch). Also, like u said, Japanese Sonic X is not much from an anime fan perspective. Though, from a Sonic fan's POV, Jap. Sonic X is quite good. I liked the opening, endings, insert songs, and music from a few the games. The show's not SatAM, but it's still pretty good.

@PerfectSe7en I only ever liked SatAM and the Sonic OVA movie, despite some thoughts about the both of them. At least the Japanese version (like I said before) of Sonic X was decent to most, but for me, it's not working out. So in all fairness, I can halfway agree with what you said.

Other than that, just to get off topic, how does ANYBODY truly consider Bakugan, Beyblade, or Pokemon anime? I think Bakugan is just a premature ripoff of Yu-Gi-Oh! and Pokemon together, and the latter two have gotten significantly worse over the years. I missed things like Cyborg 009, Mobile Fighter G Gundam, and even Yu Yu Hakusho... {sigh}

I like this show but in Japanese like when Sonic says S**t and my only dislike of the show was Chris overall. plus the show had watered down portrayal of Sonic Adventure 1 2 and Sonic Battle/Advance 3. The last season I lost all interest though.
