Sonic: Night of the Werehog (CGI Anime Short)

Sega just released this up on their site apparently a day or so ago. It's an anime "movie" short, which practically has little to no voice acting. Just some random grunts. Kind of cute though. You can watch it here. Of interest, Momoko Ishikawa is in it, despite the rest of the actors being english. Anyways, here's the credit listing (or atleast the important ones):

My personal opinion? It was cute and kind of funny. Not sure how else to describe it. However, I will admit, I love the music for it. Gave it this slight classic cartoonish flare to it and honestly reminded me of the days of classic sonic for some reason.

Basically Sonic and Chip decide to head into what appears to be an abandoned house, which it turns out to be haunted by ghosts that love taking pictures of scared people. Sonic seems unphased by the hauntings, but unfortunately for Chip he's the one getting the most feaked out. The head ghost seems infuriated by this, and has the other ghosts try and scare the living crap out of Sonic. However, at first their plan seems to go smoothly, that is until Sonic turns into the Werehog and the ghosts themselves become afraid.

Saw it at Cartoonbrew.com. Great short, I was surprised that it was primarily a Japanese joint, I thought it was done in Hollywood, how good it was done!

It was directly done in Sega of Japan's Animation studio, so yeah. Of course it would be Japanese. Not a joint.
