Everyone, I've got some big news!

Thanks to Sonic Lore Database over on Discord, I've obtained what appears to be the Complete Collection of the Sonic Manga, published by Shogakukan.

That's right, all the Japanese Originals are now available to you or anyone that's curious on what it holds. This is the same series that Amy and Charmy originally came from. Along with other characters that were designed with the assistance of Sega of Japan themselves! This is truly a monumental moment for all Sonic fans, and if any of you can read Japanese or know someone that can translate them, let us know. What secrets does this long dormant series hold? Let's find out! :)

Sweet!

Be nice to see someone tweak the imagery for digital and translate all this for "quality of life" purposes. I wonder if there are any fan continuations floating around as well. Archiving is a great step, but if you want to keep the dust off, it would be great to see it be more accessible to fans.

Indeed, but considering the obscurity of the series as well as the language barrier, I have not seen any sort of fan continuation of this series. If there is, I'd assume that it would be only from Japanese fans. Even then, I sincerely doubt it.

I'd be interested to see how it would be explained as to why Nicky turns into Sonic, and why Nicky never remembers the times he was Sonic. That's kind of a HUGE mystery to me and why that was done.

The-secret-identity-even-to-their-self trope, huh? Honestly that is rarely ever done since it launched with Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde as an idea. Mostly used as a horror trope, for werewolf's and such, not as heroes. It can create a bizarre situation where someone knows you are "Clark Kent" when you yourself forget you are Superman.

Reminds me of the show Angry Beavers with the first Muscular Beaver episode, where the title hero in the comic said that his identity is so secret, even HE doesn't know who he is! :D

I need to look over these comics and find the one where Nicky's Dad tells him how Sonic saved him years ago, and when he woke up ended up meeting his Future Wife. I mean Sonic as a Series isn't new to Time Travel (unless that was the first case of it happening), but if Time Travel is not involved...how the heck is that even possible!?

In fact, the story of Sonic saving someone from a Plane Crash is the end point of that obscure Mary Garnet Sonic Story, which makes me think if there's some sort of tie to that story.
