This comic is hard to review. There’s an immense amount of text in it, sourcing the images is a convoluted process since they exist in multiple versions and don’t come in at the right resolution, it’s long, and it contains vast quantities of filler.
All of which I might have been able to push through if I was really breaking new ground and dissecting something heretofore undiscovered for the very first time for the whole Internet to see. but what’s really getting to me is the sense of futility that comes from the thing having already been dissected by the CWCki, Annotated Sonichu, the Videobooks, and a thousand other places. I don’t really feel like I’m adding anything, and that’s incredibly disheartening.
So I’m gonna quit, and move on to other stories that may not be a whole lot more tractable but will at least be more rewarding.
I might come back to Sonichu in the future, but probably not. Other sites like the CWCki are only going to get more comprehensive as time goes on.

Hello hello all you patrons, and welcome back to the wonderful world of Sonichu.
Last time actually a whole lot of plot-relevant shit went down. Chris and Sonichu discovered an ancient ruin (left behind by the Cherokees, of all people!) which contained magical pedestals capable of empowering Chris’s medallion to be able to turn him into Chris-Chan Sonichu and also giving him an expositional vision from the ancient Cherokee “king” he is apparently a reincarnation of.
By some weird coincidence Sarah, the girl Chris has a one-sided boner for, and Wes, the dude Chris has a one-sided hateboner for due to his having briefly dated Sarah when they were all in high school, are also reincarnations of ancient Amerindian (or in the case of Wes and his ‘Wasabi Clan’ heritage, possibly Japanese) leaders, and they too have hedgehog powers. They’re all prophecized to band together to defeat some kind of Ancient Evil that got released when Sonichu found the cave, but Wes is more interested in acquiring the Cherokian Crown, an artifact which Chris apparently briefly possessed and which has THE POWAH TO RULE THE WOOOOOORLD!!!!
He beat the tar out of Chris while the both of them were in hedgehog form and managed to swipe the Crown, but then Sarah showed up and nailed him to a tree with a lightning arrow.
