Sonic the Hedgehog has received many animated adaptations, from the classic SatAM to the upcoming Sonic Prime, but perhaps the most game-accurate of all was Sonic X. With adaptations of Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 and plenty of original stories, it still stands as a tentpole example of Sonic on TV.
Many fans, however, had issues with the English dub of the show by 4Kids which changed various aspects, most notoriously the background music. Up until now the options for viewing the original Japanese version were few and far between, but now we have confirmation of an official release.
Discotek Media has confirmed that all 78 Japanese episodes of Sonic X will be getting a Blu-Ray release complete with English subtitles based on Hulu’s albeit slightly revised. Background details will also receive subs.
All 78 episodes, restored as much as possible (still in SD.)
Newly revised subtitles.
5.1 audio for episodes that have it from the old JP Hi-Spec DVDs.
