    An Akira review would be very intersting to see from you. 2019 is around the corner. I think it would be a good challenge .

    Remember when cartoons were only allowed to be good if they had a PSA at the end of each episode?

    Oh, Brother, this movie entertains me on so many STRANGE levels. "I'm just going to say words until I run out of words and then these words are going to stop being words' words"? Probably one of the best ways to sum up unprofessional dubbing.
    BTW, you know what's kind of eerie? Listen to this moment from the girl in the movie or NC's review: "Sonic, I don't care what happens to Robotnik or Daddy, but please do this for the both of us." To anybody familiar with video games, add 10 years to this movie's INITIAL release. Now, are you reminded of a PARTICULAR moment from one of Sonic's games?

    Hmm~... yeah, Sonic is basically furry Mega-man.
    Although tails is a fox, I'm letting that slide since foxes are canines.
    ... How has no one pointed this out before 2018?
