The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.

The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog (ソニックの冒険ヘッジホッグ Sonic no Daibouken?)[1] is series of illustrated text stories featuring Sonic the Hedgehog. The illustrated stories were published in fourth grade Shogaku Yonensei magazines by Shogakukan as part of the serialized manga series.

The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog is a separated series from serialized manga due to having illustrated stories with text narration. Regardless, many elements and characters from the manga created by Kenji Terada are still featured in stories. As a result of being featured in the fourth grade Shogaku Yonensei magazine (as well as being a part of the study book series of Shogakukan's Shogakukan no Gakushuuzasshi), the tone of many of the stories is much more sharp and action-oriented compared to the more humorous and childish tone from the original manga, along with different plotlines.

Like the serialized manga, not much is known about the illustrated stories and when they were exactly published, and thus remain obscure to this day. Many of the illustrated stories are written by Hirokazu Hikawa, Yoshihiko Ochi and Mitsuo Kimura. Sango Morimoto from the serialized manga, has also been involved as one of writers for the illustrated stories.[1]
