Plot Summary:

Sonichu is a webcomic created by the infamous artist, vlogger and trolling victim Christian Weston Chandler, better known by its nickname Chris-chan. The comic, which follows the adventures of eponymous Electric Hedgehog Pokemon (fusion of Pikachu and Sonic the Hedgehog) has gained a notorious reputation online due its overal low quality, poor originality, the introduction of autobiographic elements to the story and author’s self-insert.

The author portrayed himself as superhuman, extremely intelligent, blessed by God (literally), major of CWCville (which is supposed to be utopia, though while judged by objective standards is an extreme case of totalitarian communism), and has his own super mode which is activated by a magic maguffin.

He also began to post pornographic artwork of his own creations as a means to protest against it. While this artwork mostly
