Originally wanted to post this in the "Supreme Topic of Other Knowledge" thread, but figured this was too recent and probably warranted its own thread.

The production manager for Mania Adventures revealed yesterday that there's a new animated series on the way in this Instagram post.

(Description for those who can't see/go to the above link or if the above post gets pulled--could be possible it was posted too early, given how this was announced out of the blue. [/nopunintended])

"Gotta go fast, gotta make it last—finally swung around the SEGA office as we're working on another fun series with the blue hedgehog 🦔 y'all are gonna love it!

#Sonic #SonicTheHedgehog #Animation #Work #SEGA #Knuckles #Tails #Amy"

Sounds like Mania Adventures did pretty well if they're jumping on another animated series so soon already. (Oh and maybe the Boom television series might have okay too I guess, in spite of its bad timeslots and the awful brand management.)

Worst case scenario, it's a tie-in to the upcoming movie.

Happy to hear! Looks like it may compete a little with:

Ya good call grabbing the original quote as the part referring to a new series was removed.

I hope we see a full fledged cartoon based on Mania Adventures, but I feel like there would have to be some form of voice acting. Maybe its something different though.

Aaron's also denied it on his Twitter.

So it's pretty much confirmed. :v:

People also have saved and posted screencaps for the original post, by the by:

EDIT: Also supporting the new animated series may be a reaction towards Mania Adventures: Tee Lopes announced on Twitter a few days ago that the Mania Adventures compilation video (which includes all fives episodes) has been viewed over 10 million times on YouTube, in less than two months. This is the Sonic YouTube channel's second most-watched video ever, surpassed only by the Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric commercial at 32.1 million views since the four years that video was posted.

Moreover, the individual five Mania Adventures episodes have a combined total of 13.4 million views on YouTube. Which when combined with the 10.5 million views from the above compilation video, brings the total amount of views across all six Mania Adventure videos up to nearly 24 million.

Aaron's "there's no official news" line on Twitter is pretty much confirmation, lol. Looking forward to seeing more about this. Mania Adventures was a delightful wonder.

I wonder if they're doing something related to Team Sonic Racing. It would be cool if each new game gets some form of animation tie-in.

While tie-in animations for each new game might be nice, I'd rather see ST, along with that talented team, revamp the entire game series through said new animated project, while hoping as well that it'd finally give to fans like me a proper timeline of events to the games.

Hey. I know it may be a pipe dream, but a guy can still dream...right?

TSR is way too close to release date to have a tie-in animation if its just now getting the green light.

That said, I'd love to see a Modern Sonic 2D animation, especially if it veers into Uekawa's illuatration style or Tyson Hesse's Classic/Modern fusion. We haven't seen M. Sonic repesented in 2D animation since Riders opening animation (unless X was still going at that time? I don't remember) I would be super down to see something like it again.

I don't think we can judge when it got the green light from that post since it just says they are working on something not that they barely got approved to do it.

Anyways, I too would love to see a Modern Sonic 2D animation.

My guess is that they were blind-sided with how much people loved Mania Adventures and how popular it became so thought it best to speedily green light a new series of some sort.

Just hope it still has the glow of Adventures even if it's not exactly the same. Hopefully this is more substantial - a new series of proper 30-minute-ish episodes?

Cool! I wouldn't mind an animated adaption of Sonic 3 or Mania. :psyduck:

Awesome not-yet-official news!

An adaptation of "Sonic: Mega Drive", maybe?

That would be awesome, really. Or something in that direction, would love it.

But I actually think will be something with Modern Sonic

Hm, I wonder if, had Archie held the licence of Sonic long and kept the Mega Man comics going, they woulda tied the Ancient Gears of Mega Drive with the Double Gear system of Mega Man 11...

Anyway, aside from getting sidetracked, I wonder what an animated series would be about. Would they go the Youtube route again like with Mania Adventures, or try mainstream media? Would they use the Classics or the Modern variants? Questions, questions...
