In the heat of the battle, all seven Chaos Emeralds are joined together causing an overpowered Chaos Central to transport Sonic from his home planet and dropping him right in the middle of the city of Station Square.

Is he alone in this human wold? What happened to his friends? And why has he been sent here?

My title explains a lot about my feelings on this DVD. When I ask, "Where's the rest?" I'm saying that this ISN'T the COMPLETE first season, but only half of it. This is one of the reasons why I rate it four stars instead of five; now I don't know where I can get the rest of the first season, without buying the individual volumes. This fact wasn't clear when I checked this out, so I'm making it clear now: THIS IS NOT THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON! Oh, and I should warn you that this DVD comes in a cheap box, as my box broke in the mail; my discs are okay for right now, but they were loose in a box that I'm not sure how to repair... Now that all of that is off my chest, I shall do my first grading system on the show itself. Think schoolastically, A+ being the best and F- being the worst.

Graphics B+: I'm rating loosely on the graphics because this is a cartoon; therefore, just about anything goes. The characters are done nice, but the backgrounds lacked consistency. One minute, you have a background much like the characters, slightly cartoonish; the next minute you have a background that looks like somebody's picture on their camera... This really clashed with everything else once or twice; you'll probably notice this the most during the episode of "Unfair Ball" when the manager speaks to the guy who manages the field. The people in the audience then look like fake cardboard cutouts of the real thing... The designers should have stuck with the cartoonish looking crowd.

Characters A: This grade is for the characters themselves; how well their personalities were developed, how likable and diverse they are, how often they appeared, and how close they come to their videogame counterparts in terms of personality and voice.

"Sonic X" is one of my favorite awesome tv show of all time. One of my favorite episode is "Fly Spy". Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Cream and Cheese, Charmy, Vector, Espeo, Vanilla, Cosmo, Lucas, and Rouge the Bat and more, I wish they were real and here in are world, because I want to be in a movie with Ben Stiller because I have my own "Night at the Museum" movie plot in my head and I will not let it go until my dream is fulfilled.

Sonic X is an anime series based off the video games from SEGA's popular Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. The storyline begins when Sonic, his friends, & his enemies accidentally teleport to Earth from their home planet via Chaos Control. The progression of the storyline is acceptable with action & adventure mixed in favourably with the comedic scenes of the anime series, but does suffer from some dull moments & irregular flow. The irregular flow is due to 4Kids Entertainment reshuffling the order sequence of the scenes within Sonic X. The plot is quite interesting in introducing the Sonic Team, enemies, & a new setting for the characters to settle in. However, the plot is not well paced & not well developed because the pace tends to be irregular when shuffling between epic action scenes & calm relaxing scenes. This irregular pace within the plot will make some viewers confused about the progression of the storyline & the significance of what is occurring due to lack of details from the dialogue. The dialogue is comedic most of the time but always lengthy & can be dull &/or even awkward occasionally.
The voice acting is a bit disappointing because the personality of the characters are portrayed somewhat fairly through the emotions & thoughts of the voice actors. Apparently, the voice actors do not give enough true reactions to the storyline therefore making the characters seem lethargic instead of panicked during scenes of epic action.
I would only recommend this anime series to young children. Anime fans that can tolerate the edits by 4Kids Entertainment can probably give this anime series a try.
Thank you.

I was living in Japan when Sonic X was first created, so I got to watch it in its original Japanese glory long before America got ahold of it. Unfortunately, 4Kids Entertainment sunk their claws into it, and if you don't know, 4Kids is infamous for butchering anime shows for American audiences. They created an annoying opening song for the American release, as well as casting poor voice actors. And of course, they've edited scenes and dialogue throughout the whole series for no apparent reason. 4Kids doesn't believe in preserving the Japanese culture presented in anime; rather, they re-write it to appeal to American audiences. It's the case of making money over making quality - 4Kids wants more Americans to be able to relate to the media so they can sell more of it to us. But in doing so, they leave us ignorant of the original culture the media emerged from.

Sonic X is my favorite of all the Sonic cartoon series released to date, but I refuse to watch this hacked-up American version (or any work of 4Kids for that matter). I'll stick to watching Sonic X in Japanese with subtitles. Besides, Sonic is originally a Japanese creation, so it feels more authentic to be watching it in Japanese.
