  • Not my favorite style of animation, but still a great episode.

    I want to note right away that I think the Japanese version of this episode is leaps and bounds better than the 4Kids version. Why? Well first off, the very first scene in the Japanese version between Shadow and Rouge isn't even in the 4Kids version. (Granted, they were at a bar, but still!) Second, I just like the Japanese translation better. Third, in the Japanese version, Knuckles actually attempts to save Yellow the 4Kids version, he just lets him die. Meh...

    I'm not a fan of how Sonic is animated in this episode, but everyone else was animated all right, in my opinion. What goes on with Shadow and Rouge is interesting in both translations, and I thought it was pretty creepy. We don't actually find out what's going on in this one, but this episode provides some little tidbits that keeps the intrigue up...for me, at least. An excellent Season 3 episode, but in my opinion, the Japanese version of this one is better.moreless
  • The quintessential Sonic X episode

    Epic battles, surprise strategies, thrilling scenes, suspense, silly humor, drama, tragedy... What could you ask more? This episode is the best of the season so far, because it has everything we need to have a good show and everything fits perfectly.

    The battle between Yellow Zelkova and Knuckles is one of the most memorable fights of any kind this season, with "The Vessel of Evil" space battle. Zelkova reveals his great and powerful potential, especially with Eggman's new device, but he also shows us that the big muscles almost always have the smallest brain. Knuckles, who has been treated as a scapegoat by the scenarists throughout the season, shows that he's a really tough fighter and his stubborn character makes that he never lets go.

    The strategy used by Sonic & the gang is really inventive and they are helped by Zelkova's foolishness. The scene where Zelkova is destroyed is well-animated and it presents one of the best plot twists of the season. Watch the show if you want to know what I'm talking about.

    Parallel to this, Rouge and Shadow make their return after a three-episode break. They're visiting a strange vegetal planet and they also have their own surprises. They end the episode with a very tragic, dramatic and mysterious scene. One of the best of the season.

    A perfect example of everything that is present in Sonic X universe, "Who Are the Metarex?" is by far the best episode of the season (or ever) and it would be very tough to beat it. Thumbs way up!moreless
