“Sonic the Hedgehog” is an OAV based on the popular video game series. Sonic and Tails are relaxing when they receive a message from the President. When they get there, they find out that Dr. Robotnik has kidnapped the President and his daughter in order to make Sonic fight a robot called Black Eggman. However, events culminate in Sonic getting an epic battle with Hyper Metal Sonic. Can Sonic and his friends save the day?
The story is enjoyable enough, although it feels like the OAV is taking place in the middle of a story arc; thanks in part to the fact that we don’t get a proper introduction to the new characters. The dubbing is decent, through some viewers will find Tails’ voice to be pretty annoying. Metal Sonic puts up a pretty good fight, but Sonic’s reaction to his death is odd since Metal Sonic doesn’t act like he’s sentient. Honolulu Sonic fans may enjoy this anime.
