Sonic Prime in a nutshell.

Sonic Prime in a nutshell. Is setting the show in places that is Green Hill in different skins some kind off joke or done to save money? All the least of this show's "worldbuilding." every world was lifeless and based on tired tropes. It's a bad sign when the pirate world is more populated than the city world.

    Every other Sonic show/movie has little to no environments from the games, except for the OVA. It and Prime are the only ones that actually look like a classic Sonic game.

        Modern Sonic is a fricking confused mess with no concrete art direction. I can't think of any other series as schizo as Sonic is in that regard.

        I was rewatching it last night, it's still fricking great. Sonic is SO much more fun and interesting a character in this than practically every other interpretation of him since, same with Tails. Eggman's perviness is jarring as frick, but he is otherwise excellent, funny and a threat at the same time. Knuckles is fine, I think he definitely needed more moments where his cooler side was shown off more.
        It doesn't use game locations, which is kind of a bummer, but they make it JUST weird and dream-like enough by setting it on some floating sky islands above a ruined earth that it doesn't hurt it too much.
        It is GENUINELY cool. Not in a weird cringe way that people seem to want it to lean into now like Shadow watching a kid get gunned down and being made of alien blood or whatever. It IS cool.

              There's that and the fact that she's largely just a comic relief character, so the inherent ridiculousness of her and Sonic being an item isn't complete cringe since it's not played dead serious.

    The problem with Sonic is that there is no central location.
    For Spider-Man it's New York, and you visit alternate NYCs.
    Sonic is also a flat character that doesn't have narrative arcs.
    But in Prime he's an idiot who needs to be taught to appreciate his friends.
    Writers don't know what to do with Sonic.
    He's a globetrotting adventurer.
    But you can't do that with a CGI cartoon budget, so they use Green Hill.

    • 3 weeks ago

      I don't mind them using one location but Green Hill is just one Zone of a whole island. The show acts like Sonic's whole world is Green Hill. It's like if a Mario cartoon was made and the setting is just World 1 of SMB.

        CGI is cheaper because of reusing assets.

          With the three Adventure locations, it'd make it much easier to reuse assets without it looking too obvious. Mystic Ruins and much of Angel Island share certain aesthetics. And the assets from all three can be used to create new locations for the other worlds.

            But Sonic Team likes Sonic wandering.
            In the games he's always in a new location.

            Green Hill and it's contemporaries is a good establishing shot for a sonic story but it shouldn't be the only backdrop. As for as best out out the grass themed zones Angel Island Zone is probably the best.

            Sonic sort of just shows up anywhere.
            Has no home, work/school or hangout.
            Those are the 3 places people frequent.

            The Game Gear games usually took place on South Island (and, based on the original plans for Sonic 2, that may have been intended to be the case for the console games as well)

            South Island could work as Sonics home.
            In the Maina shorts they use Angel Island.
            But every classic Sonic game is a new island.

            I think it's criminal how slept on Emerald Hill is.
            >comfy sunflower fields
            >poppier colors than green hill

            All Emerald hill has are the corkscrews.
            And they get placed into Green Hill now.
            It's been forgotten and merged with it.

            There are cartoons with characters always in new location.
            But having a central location is easier and you can reuse backgrounds.

                Every adaption creates their own setting.
                Ask someone where Sonic lives, anon.
                They would probably say Green Hill.
                But in Generations he doesn't recognize it.
                It's just another place, it has many clones.
                And in Forces it's disconnected from South Island.
                Green Hill stopped being a place and is just an idea.
                That's why in Prime Green Hill exists in a void, with nothing else.

                Yeah, and it's part of the reason the IP sucks so hard now. The main character isn't even allowed to have a fricking house. Sonic isn't a character to Sega, he's a glorified logo. It's pathetic.

                Only in the OVA unfortunately.
                Occasionally, a manual like Sonic Labyrinth or a game like Secret Rings will imply that Sonic has a home, but others suggest that he's a nomad, like a previous anon mentioned. Heck, Sonic Battle gives Tails, Amy, Knuckles and Rouge explicit houses/bases, but Sonic doesn't seem to have one.
