  1. What the hell just happened…?

    Yeah, 2:35, what’s that about? I’m guessing the very last bit of text in the video is saying “to be continued…” but I don’t know what was going on which might be for the best. And why are they all dancing. What cropped up that was so important that it caused them all to do the exact same dance.

    I was strangely transfixed by the whole thing too.

  2. to people who dont know what nice boat means:
    Its a old joke based of the anime called “school days” where, before the last episode launched, there was a violent murder in japan, because the lsat episode had a murder scene quite like what happend in japan the company decided not to puplish it, so instead they put up an image of a *ahem* “Nice boat”, of course someone from 4 chan managed to make it into a meme almost instantly.

  3. 1: When Big appeared it made complete sense.

    2: I want this music as my ringtone

    3: at 0:40…. why is Rouge about to let Knuckles… urm… do things?

  4. Welcome to the mind fuck kids!

    Very ‘cute’ art in the same way that cute means eye raped. Seriously had no idea what was going on but I was somehow entertained.

  5. This just mind raped me.
    And I liked it.

    NICE BOAT.NICE BOAT.NICE BOAT.NICE BOAT.NICE BOAT.NICE BOAT.NICE BOAT.NICE BOAT.

  6. hahaha, i saw this a long time ago, didn’t expect to see it here! i love it, lol
    just fyi, this video is a parody (or sonicised version, whatever) of a video based on the touhou project franchise. for the original, search for “kero destiny”

  7. Why are the Japanese so weird?

    If you look at the fan art gallery on ”Sonic and the Black Knight” all the UK and US fanart is really down to earth, mostly depicting scenes from past games, then the japanese fanart is all crazy, wacky stuff, like this video.

  8. I love the animation and it still my favorite for a long time now. I just didn’t expect for it to show up here as well. There a lot of sonic videos like that from nico nico douga.

  9. This made me like sonic more. I havent played sonic in like a month ever since I got suzumiya haruhi no gekidou, I watched the previous videos but since its a rainy day I will play sonic all stars and some old game cube games.

  10. This is one of those nonsense parodies, isn’t it? It was…… interesting. I’ve seen it before, but you really should see some other japenese videos like this. Some are pretty good, some are pretty… strange….

  11. I saw this a good while back, the song is really catchy and I like the animations, they’re quite cute, the random stuff happening is really amusing.

  12. Thi is one of the best things I’ve ever seen. I love this. I’m downloading that song right now. And maria was friggin cute in that.

  13. Let this be a lesson to you, kids: NEVER smoke Japanese crack or else this clusterfuck will happen.

  14. @Misk: Touhou Project’s ‘psychotic’ fanbase has a RIDICULOUSLY good reason to be psychotic.

    EVERYTHING IN THE TOUHOU FRANCHISE IS MADE BY ONE MAN. ALL THE GAMES, CHARACTERS, GRAPHICS, MUSIC, PLOT – EVERYTHING.

    There are hundreds of completely unique and recognisable characters, the music is fantastic, and all the games are of a professional standard that most companies can’t match.

  15. Let’s just write it off as JAPAN IS WEIRD LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

    It’s totally not a collection of Japanese references referring to popular music and TV shows.

    JAPAN LOL, WEIRD LOL.

  16. @Umiyuri: While that is indeed true, one cannot deny how far-reaching Touhou is. Or to how far the average Touhou fan will go. Of course, being a fan myself, I’m certainly one to talk…

  17. I can’t believe I actually wasted three minutes and thirty three seconds of my life to watch that.
    What’s up with 2:47? I find that rather disturbing O_O

  18. 2:32 Thats from School days right? when that crazy girl says “just as i thought, there nobody inside you.”
    WTH?!


  19. (halfway snaps out of trance) Oh, Japenese and their little animes! Now they’re using their songs to remake sonic! “How cute!” (Completely snaps out of it and throws up…)

  20. derp derp, we don’t get the otaku pop culture references so let’s just label it as “weird”.

    Great video. I fell in love with it quite a while back, it’s positively brilliant.
