Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

The writing is being done in the US. The animation is the only thing that's French. One of the writers is one the staff of Friendship is Magic.

And what you're describing isn't a fetish. She's a clingy jealous girl, and the character trope exists in both western and eastern writing.

STC Amy was fun. She starts out like current game Amy but matures when she realises Sonic basically only loves himself and becomes the working day to day commander of the freedom fighters, with Sonic as a figurehead to give the people courage.

 

Too bad this was the 90s so she eventually got absorbed into the Spice Girls/Girl Power meme, including wearing ironic t-shirts and quoting the catchphrase from Barb Wire.

I haven't read Sonic the Comic, but even in the Archie book she maintains her crush on Sonic, BUT IT ISN'T HER SINGULAR DEFINING CHARACTERISTIC.  There are other qualities to her.  She has her own motivations, pastimes, friends, adventures... THOUGHTS... and they don't all intrinsically involve her obsession with the lead male character.  She can think and do other things.  Things that aren't Sonic related.

 

In all the Japanese written media, like the game cut scenes or that wretched Sonic X anime, there is no other trait to Amy beyond "SONIC SONIC SONIC SOOOOONIIIIIIIC!"  She is completely and utterly defined by her crush on the lead male character and there is positively nothing to her other than that.  Japanese Amy doesn't even qualify as a character.  She's more like a pet.  It's awful.  Sonic Team is awful.

 

That's really become the problem with the cast as a whole. Knuckles is one of my favourite characters and although that's partly due to STC (he was the low key loner who preferred to work alone but was a happy team player when needed and showed the rest of the cast the respect Sonic never gave them), it dissapoints me greatly that for a decade he's been a dumb idiot who gets treated as a slow minded bungler. The new design suggests that won't change anytime soon but I really hope in future they experiment more with the characters. Lost World had hints of that with Sonic basically causing the problem and the bickering between himself, Tails and Eggman but we need to see it pushed further. They've been trying for the last few games but I don't think they've found the right team to really have fun with these characters and make you wanna see more of them.

I wouldn't say that's all there is to Amy. She sure as hell got flanderized to hell and back in Heroes, but before that she took on finding Birdy's parents for no other reason than it was right. In SA2 she's the one responsible for getting Shadow to actually give a damn and realize Maria's real intentions. Even in Sonic 06 she stood up for Silver against Sonic and in Battle she acted in a sibling like role to Cream and Emerl.

She's not a super progressive character, but I think she deserves more credit than to be called a pet.

And for the record it was a game written in the west that made her invent a fake boyfriend to make Sonic jealous, so.

The fun part of STC's Knux was that he was pretty much duty-bound to be a loner and didn't really mind the reprieve of others showing up to help.

I've tried so many times, but I just can't get into STC. Sonic just seems so thoroughly unlikable, and not in a Aninated Sentinel Prime way. In a "we're supposed to cheer when he makes Tails feel bad and think it's totally great" way.

But then, for me, the defining moment for Sonic for me has always been "what you see is what you get. Just a guy who loves adventure" from SA2. That resonated with me more than any of the hamfisted attitude tropes the 90's era stuff forced out.

The fun part of STC's Knux was that he was pretty much duty-bound to be a loner and didn't really mind the reprieve of others showing up to help.

 

I love the run where he ended up joining Tails in the Nameless Zone, with the natives assuming this must be the useless sidekick Sonic that Tails mentioned in all his letters. Tails thinks Knuckles will be angry, but instead he's more than happy to play along and support a charade that gives him a break from all the fawning back on Mobius :D  Likewise the little scene after the big issue 100 where he manages to piss the hedgehog off by telling him he can retire now they finally beat Robotnik.

 

As for Sonic- it was a choice by the head writer. He looked at Sonic and rather than see the cool dude Sega marketing did instead saw something like the jerk football team captain in a high school movie, a gloryhound who was drunk on fame. It's not my absolute favourite take but it stands out amongst all the character's other incarnations and he could be a good guy when it counted.

Oh hey, another CG show taking place in canyonland. Hooray.

 

The designs don't move me much, either. The only one that was changed significantly is Knuckles. The rest mostly just has random accessories attached. 

 

The writing that I can gleam from this is mostly like the games from the last decade or so. That being dull and uninvolving. I do, however, Mike Pollock's perfomance as Eggman. The man's a treasure.

I think there's a median between making Sonic a dynamic character and making him a laid back but still cool guy. Stuff like his cockiness getting everyone in trouble in Lost World, the rivalry he had in SA2 being a counter to Shadow's. The exchange between Sonic and Eggman when he gets tricked into getting blown up is great. I also enjoyed his interaction with Chip in Unleashed, and how he's not so much broken up about his new form as disappointed when Amy doesn't recognize him.

There was a phase when they were more interested in telling stories about other characters, but those are also some of the worst games in the franchise or... games that are an ensemble story. Sonic X also had a different set of writers from the games so I don't think they really got his "SA" personality either. He's a lot snarkier and sharp in that game than he ever is in SX, for one.

Well yeah; By this point He's claimed the insult as a Badge of Honor. Even as Robotnik he used 'Egg' in the names of many of his machines, so why not be 'Eggman'? Its hard for a term to be an insult when you're proudly using it yourself.

So I'm not familiar with the French studio making this show.  Honestly, most French cartoons that make it here to the US are uniformly terrible (Martin Mystery, Totally Spies, Monster Buster Club, etc) or just bland, mediocre afterschool timeslot fillers.  I hear Wakfu is... good?  Maybe?  Or it might just be neckbeards distracted by all the hips and boobies, I dunno.

 

I'm hoping, though, that with this not being written by the Japanese, Amy might actually be something of a character and not a screeching anime fetish incarnate (what is that crap?  Yandere?  Tsundere?  I don't even).  The Japanese weren't about to give her any dignity, so maybe the French will step up.

Wakfu is awesome.

 

I actually think that French anime is great when it's a wholly French product. Most of the stuff you listed is developed elsewhere. (Totally Spies and MBC are Canadian, Martian Mystery is mostly Japanese)

 

As far as this series goes, the writing will have to be suuuuuper good in order to avoid all the internet hate and cliches that come a long with Sonic.

None of the games Smith has done for Sonic have been dubbed. The scripts for each game since Colors have been done by the two guys that did Happy Tree Friends. The basic stories for Generations and Colors were already decided before they came on and Lost World was the only game they wrote themselves from scratch, but all three's dialogue originated over here. They didn't dub or translate anything except into other languages.

Aside from that, Smith is, IMHO, the best voice actor the character has ever had and I liked him from day 1.

I'm hoping, though, that with this not being written by the Japanese, Amy might actually be something of a character and not a screeching anime fetish incarnate (what is that crap?  Yandere?  Tsundere?  I don't even).  The Japanese weren't about to give her any dignity, so maybe the French will step up.

Wakfu is awesome.

 

I actually think that French anime is great when it's a wholly French product. Most of the stuff you listed is developed elsewhere. (Totally Spies and MBC are Canadian, Martian Mystery is mostly Japanese)

 

As far as this series goes, the writing will have to be suuuuuper good in order to avoid all the internet hate and cliches that come a long with Sonic.

 

Wasn't Code Lyoko French?  If you could make it past the terrible character designs and the awful, awful music, that show wasn't that bad.  It's just jumping the first two hurdles that was hard.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

Well I don't know if they recorded it all together or anything. I'm just saying none of it has been based on an adaptation of a Japanese script.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."
