  • Superhero Vector Protects Vanilla in May 2023's Sonic Channel Calendar Artwork

    Vector still finds time to wear headphones while battling evil.

    Sonic Channel has published its latest Calendar Artwork for May 2023, and the results of its fan poll from earlier this month have been realised! The latest in its 'fantasy scenario' art series, this new piece features Vector as a superhero protecting Vanilla the Rabbit (presented as a theatre-going contemporary damsel in distress) from certain robot doom.

    According to the Sonic Channel blog accompanying this artwork (via machine translation), "This month [we have] Vector, looking like an American comic book hero, and Vanilla, looking a bit more adult [sophisticated]! What is the mysterious giant robot looming far beyond the city at night?"


    The interesting mashup is the latest in the Sonic Channel social media team's 'Isekai Ohgiri' series, which places well-known characters from the Sonic the Hedgehog series in unconventional situations and scenarios. Previously, we've had Shadow and Infinite doing battle as idol singers, Amy and Blaze seeking truth in some celestial powers, Tikal and Chaos running a pizza parlour and Silver and Elise stunning the crowd as ice-skating performers.

    You can download this latest May 2023 Calendar art, as well as all previous months in this series, on Sonic Channel's website.

    ...The Twitter post for this artwork refers to Vanilla as the "bar's specialty mama". And courtesy of a friend, that term could refer to a Mama-san, who are basically woman of authority for bars, night clubs, or geisha houses. So, Vanilla is more the manager of a nightclub/bar than a "lady of the night". And I don't really see how you can come to that conclusion by her appearance in here.

    In any case, very great to see Vanilla with a new appearance for once lol And Vector looking a bit like All Might with Kamina's sunglasses. Very nice artwork for the month of my birth.

    Still salty that Cream had to take another L in these polls though

    Before Google Translating, “adult” is written as オトナ. While than can be translated as adult, it has more connotations with things like sophistication than it does with that sort of thing. It’s adult the sense that caviar is adult, you know? Anyway, I’m loving the art for this month as always!
