Kevin Michael Richardson,
Before the Japanese trailer was released at the World Hobby Fair (January 2003), there was already a three-minute teaser existing that was created sometime during early 2002, as the collaboration preview between SONICTEAM and TMS Entertainment. Cream the Rabbit was stated as a new character (due to the trailer being released before her video game debut, Sonic Advance 2 (2002), was completed) and Cheese is plainly referred to as "CHAO." This trailer was narrated in English, probably done most to market in some TV network sales pitching. Scenes from the two trailers have been used for the anime's first opening. See more »
Back in 2003, Japan released an anime show based on the video game franchise, "Sonic the Hedgehog", the show was called, "Sonic X".
During that year, 4Kids entertainment did the English dub for the series. I watched a bit of the Japanese dub but I mostly watched the English dub when I was in 5th Grade and I liked it. But looking back on it, it was bad.
The problem's with the English dub is that the voice acting was bad (Especially Bokkun's voice) and they replaced the intro from the Japanese version. The Japanese dub and the English dub also share one problem: The character, Chris Thorndike, is pretty lame.
But there were some thing's I liked about the English dub: The theme song was pretty good, some of the voice acting was decent and most of the episode's were good because season's 1 and 2 were more like adaptations of, "Sonic Adventure 1 and 2" and "Sonic: Battle".
Overall, "Sonic X", is not a bad show. It's just that the English dub was bad and I wished a good anime studio like, Funimation, did the English dub. If you're going to watch the series, then watch the Japanese dub.
