Today, the final subtitled Japanese episode of Sonic X was released on Hulu, at last completing 4Kids’ project of providing the original, uncut version of the hit anime! All three seasons (78 episodes) of the series are now available in both English-subbed and dubbed formats! Expect Toonzaki to also post the newest Hulu video embeds during its next update cycle.
Sonic X, along with Yu-Gi-Oh!, has always had a vocal fanbase calling for a subtitled release of the original Japanese version. Back in early 2009, when 4Kids first began uploading Japanese episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters to its YouTube channel — manned at the time by the now legendary 4Kids employee, Nameless Cubicle Office Guy — fans of Sonic X tirelessly left comment after comment on the channel, hoping that their anime would get the same royal treatment that Yu-Gi-Oh! had been getting. In July 2009, a preview of the subbed, Japanese version of Sonic X was uploaded. Fans were both anxious and excited, as it was the first of 4Kids’ online subtitling endeavors. Full uncut episodes from season 1 of Sonic X were unleashed in April 2010 and later episodes have slowly and steadily been released since then.
This past Thursday, Sonic turned 20 years old, making this a very momentous and timely update. Happy belated birthday, Sonic!
Congratulations to Save Sonic and all of the Sonic X fandom who called for an uncut and uncensored subtitled release of the show! Your rallying and support have paid off! And congratulations, of course, to 4Kids for completing the massive project!
So rejoice, Sonic fans, and give the series a watch! The subtitles should automatically appear when you launch a video, but if they don’t, click on the “CC” button on the bottom of the video player, then select “English” and choose one of the three styles for the subtitle text.
