Here’s a nice little treat for the day – storyboards for Sonic CD’s opening animation, drawn by none other than original Sonic designer Naoto Ohshima himself.



Ohshima sent the storyboards off to the legendary Toei Animation, who enlisted Studio Junio to animate it. While there aren’t individual scans of each board to peruse, you can still garner quite a bit of detail just at a glance.

If you want to check out Sonic CD for yourself, it’s part of the Sonic Origins collection on the Switch right now.
