Sonic X e64 

I just realised that Shadow has literally never been to Sonic's world before. He "died" on Earth. There's absolutely no explanation for how he ended up on Mobius at all other than the general handwave that Eggman had him in suspended animation.

I did not expect to be saying this but the dynamic with Chris is actually quite interesting. The original ending of the show flashed forward to him as an 18 year old not having seen Sonic in 6 years. When they revived it for this series he travels to Sonic's world and this reverses his age to 12, presumably as some kind of status quo preserving mandate. But he's actually very insistent on being mentally an adult and really resentful of being seen as 12.

Eggman and Chris both wear space helmets, but no one else does. So everyone other than humans can breath in space? This just raises further questions!

oh Tails is actually flying. I am genuinely not sure if he's actually done that at any point in this show before

we get a flashback to Cosmo's mother. It's literally just a tree. I am not joking

ok but then they apparently manage to stuff all its cannons and missile tubes with the debris without it noticing which is silly
note the ship is itself alive, it's not just a crew failing to notice

Show thread

Sonic X e61 

ok the plan is genuinely clever
they dump a load of random stuff out of the ship to spread a debris field coming out of the cloaked area
which the alien robot ship thing sees through as an attempt to trick it into thinking the ship was blown up when it wasn't
but also Sonic, Knuckles and Amy were hiding in some of the debris to get close to it without being noticed

Tails' ship apparently has a cloaking field which rather than just making them invisible apparently just kind of blanks out an entire region of space around them

they're really making a massive deal out of Shadow. He couldn't defeat a giant robot spaceship so now everyone else is convinced they couldn't possibly beat it

Show thread

Sonic X e61 

the episode starts with everyone being really serious and broody wondering how Shadow is still alive and how he showed up and what he's up to, except for Sonic who doesn't care at all and just says we can just ask him all these questions if we run into him again.
which honestly is a good use of his aloofness I like it

Sonic X e60 

Eggman is just kind vaguely around in his own spaceship and occasionally tries to steal a chaos emerald but is mostly doing fuck-all

Show thread

Sonic X e60 

the explanation for how Shadow comes back is that Eggman was keeping him in suspended animation on board his spaceship the entire time and he just never mentioned this or had a plan for it at all

Show thread

this is the first original character in the entire show who actually looks like a Sonic character and he's an alien
