Sonic X (2003)

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Sonic X (2003). An anime TV series based on Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog video game series, adapted poorly by 4kids, it's not too bad. In the news, convention "leaks" are always funny, retroactive editing is becoming more and more common, someone leaked the entire 87 minute animatic of the (sadly) canceled Genndy Tartakovsky Popeye feature, and Anime Matsuri remains one of the worst anime cons in the world, and it's spinning off a "dubbing studio" with a known sex pest.

Cartoon Cartoons (1995-2003)

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the cartoons of Cartoon Cartoons (1995-2003). Dexter's Lab, Johnny Bravo, The Powerpuff Girls, and all the rest. In the news, Made in Abyss is returning July 6, Inu-Oh is coming August 12 and has an English trailer, and Scott geekbites Osamu Tezuka's W3 (Wonder 3).

Centaurworld

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Centaurworld. It's on Netflix, Rym loves it, and it's a musical. In the news, Initial D is getting a successor anime with MF Ghost. The Ghost is selling cars too, Mr. Boop is getting a deluxe hardcover book, and Rym has some thoughts on SK8 the Infinity.

Adventure Time: Distant Lands - Obsidian

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the second installment in Adventure Time: Distant Lands with Obsidian. In the news, Rym got his Index and finished Deca-Dence, The Art of Wolfwalkers is very good, Funimation adds many Gundams, Venture Brothers is cancelled (but also possibly un-canceled), and the publishing industry needs some antitrust action ASAP.

The Mandalorian

Tonight on GeekNights, we review The Mandalorian. It's some Star Wars. In the news, LEGO Super Mario is amazing but probably not for you, and Overwatch Hero Pools are already making big waves.

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the 1966 Peanuts television special It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. From an exploration of PTSD and the horrors of war to the inherent fanaticism of religion, it has some surprisingly nuanced elements. In the news, Makoto Shinkai's Weathering Skis will be in American theaters, but you can see it early at Anime NYC, and Disenchantment season 2 is surprisingly good!
