This news was unexpected. Just to clarify, this has nothing to do with the whole Vic Mignogna debacle, it is something else. According to Anime News Network, someone is suing the Funimation company for violating the Disability Act. A legally blind person named Jenise Angeles filed a lawsuit on January 13th towards Funimation alleging that the company violates the American Disability Act. The lawsuit claims that Funimation failed to construct and create a website that can benefit herself and others who have impaired vision. The lawsuit in which she is targeting is the “shop.funimation.com” website. Jenise is a legally blind who needs assistance when accessing the web. Jenise reported to Funimation at the shop site whenever she wanted to shop for sales, but due to Funimation lacking of features and accommodations, she misses out on experiencing shopping from them. These accommodating features include alt texts and other label elements which helps pinpoint on certain products and see the details.

There is more details in Anime News Network and Accessibility.com in which explains more details on the situation with Funimation. Recently updated, Funimation has yet to comment on this lawsuit.

Sonic the Hedgehog News: Roger Craig Smith, Netflix Series and Sonic 2 Movie Production!

In case you missed out on the weekend, I got some surprising news for you, Sonic the Hedgehog fans!

1. Roger Craig Smith

Best known for voicing iconic characters in games such as Chris Redfield from Resident Evil and Ezio from Assassin’s Creed 2 series, the well-known voice actor Roger Craig Smith announced on Twitter that after 10 years of voicing Sonic the Hedgehog, he is retiring from voicing Sonic. He started voicing Sonic the Hedgehog in 2010 and he even voiced the Wisp Announcer in the game Sonic Colors. After that, Roger continued to voice Sonic in the games, cameo appearances in Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph and even the series Sonic Boom. As of now, it’s unknown who will be the new voice for Sonic. Roger took over the voice of Sonic after Jason Griffith.

2. Netflix

Mentioned a while back, Netflix and Sega are teaming up and are planning to create a 3D Sonic the Hedgehog animated series. Recently, it’s been announced the Sonic Netflix project is officially called Sonic Prime. According to Twitter, Sonic Prime will be worked on by Sega, WildBrain Studios and Man of Action Entetainment.

According to IGN, there will be a total of 24 episodes and it’s a collaboration of Sega and WildBrain Studios, same company who homes brands such as Peanuts, Caillou and Inspector Gadget. Man of Action Entertainment is a collective company well-known for creating shows like Ben 10, Generator Rex and Big Hero 6.

IGN describes Sonic Prime:

The animated adventure will consist of 24 episodes, which will follow Sonic on a “high-octane adventure where the fate of a strange new multiverse rests in his gloved hands.” Whilst that might sound like a familiar premise, Netflix notes that the series is “more than a race to save the universe,” as the Blue Blur ultimately finds himself on “a journey of self-discovery and redemption.”

Sonic Prime will be on Netflix in 2022.

3. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 film

Shonen Jump fans rejoice because it looks like My Hero Academia will have some competition with this anime.

Despite the anime concluding, it’s been teased that there is a planned announcement; it is described as “important”. It’s unknown what is the announcement, but some believe it’s a movie. Until then, enjoy this anime until the end of March.
