Sonichu #12 is the 13th issue of the Sonichu comic series. After Chris restarted work on Sonichu #11, which he completed in June 2017, Sonichu fans were reassured that they would get to see the completion of this issue.
It was not clear what this issue would contain, as Sonichu #11 was itself in creative limbo for years. Chris has said that the second or third part will complete the Christmas special begun in Sonichu #11., though given the date of that statement, and the apparent drift away from the Christmas special by the end of #11, Chris's plans may have changed significantly.
Episode 25: "To Be or Naught a Tomgirl…"
On 21 May 2017 Chris finally uploaded a scan of the front page, and more uncolored pages. The first episode promises to deal with Robbie Sonee's thoughts about his gender identity, perhaps as an expression of Chris's own, though this comes across as oddly redundant given that Chris's transition to "Christine" was already expounded upon in Sonichu #11.
In true Chris fashion, the title of the episode is grammatically nonsensical, using a construction no one ever uses which Chris likely lifted from the famous "to be or not to be" soliloquy in Hamlet (though likely through general cultural awareness rather than actually reading it, combined with an apparent misspelling of "not" as "naught" (actually an archaic synonym for "nothing").
Early 2009. Robbie Sonee wonders why he, unlike other BRUTE MALES, dislikes violent media. He seeks advice from his sisters Cera Rosechu and Christine Rosechu, his parents, Chris himself, and the internet. He also consults with Magi-chan, who while possessing knowledge of Robbie's future, sensibly tells him that his life and his experiences are his to discover and that to reveal them would be to deprive him of the joy of learning...oh, and also that he possesses a "female soul." Accordingly, Robbie comes to the conclusion that he is a lesbian transwoman. He formalizes his newfound identity by coming out to his sisters, declaring his intention to transition completely as soon as he evolves and adopt the name Roberta Sonichu. Christine and Cera unconditionally accept Robbie as their little sister, pulling her up into a hug and telling her that they love her and they're proud of her -- prompting her to evolve in their arms. Chris, as if allergic to his own ability to write a sincerely touching moment, concludes this scene by having Roberta ejaculate on her sister's carpet.
Donning a new outfit slapped together by Christine, Roberta then heads to the top of Magi-chan's police state surveillance tower. To help her transition along, Magi-chan offers her a Subliminal Frequency Hypnosis binaural beat CD -- the same kind that served Chris so well -- and reckons that the entire process should take about two months. Roberta offhandedly mentions that she also begins conventional hormone therapy, though this is rendered somewhat redundant as she magically sprouts double-D breasts and a penis that shrinks and splits into a new vagina. At the end of June, Magi-chan "examines" her telepathically, treating the reader to an absolutely nightmarish 3-D shot of her organs. He proclaims her transformation complete while also reminding her to continue taking her meds until the doctors instruct her to stop; Chris seems unaware that hormone therapy is generally a lifetime undertaking.
After earning a "life trophy" for her transition, Roberta lists off her dating experiences, from the unfortunately named Vulva Pie (a creation of Jackie's who was dragged into hiding along with her creator) on to Mimi (a random character and star of the Flufflehugs commissions.) The narration jumps ahead to Roberta performing a Sonic Rainboom, a phenomenon Chris stole from My Little Pony, by running on the sky clad in a garish Rainbow Dash costume from the previous Halloween, all while her sisters film it. She succeeds, creating an implausible rainbow that stretches across the United States.
The episode ends with Roberta addressing the reader, babbling about tomgirls and female souls, and proclaiming that she is loved and loves herself.
Episode 26: Prideful
September 12, 2009. The episode starts with Chris in his new female Sonichu form locked in an intense battle against Reldnach while offering a long-winded, nonsensical internal monologue on the nature of love and hatred. The narration skips back to earlier in the day, where the main cast (and any number of shoddily drawn Cwcville citizens) attend the first Annual SLGBTQ Pride festival at Cwcville Park. Attractions include burgers and pop, "pride bracelets, knick knacks and lots of rainbows," largely untouched Bananasaur dolls. Jamsta and Lolisa broadcast live from their booth and loudly flaunt their heterosexual sex life, while Angelica meets with "Danny Steckle" and thanks him for his large donation.
Meanwhile, Chris, Crystal, and the hedgehogs gather on a blanket in the grass. Chris is apparently undergoing psychic training with Magi-chan and Silvana and discusses his progress while his fictional friends and family heap praise on him. They are interrupted by the return of Sonichu and Rosechu's brood, Zapina, and Sandy, who come bearing pride swag and no dialogue of any importance. They also receive a surprise visit from Chris's self-spawned children, Cynthia and Russel. The twins hug their "mama" with wagging tails and tell him they miss him, and he brushes them off with an "awww!" It's at that this point that Heather Iglesias, their caretaker, appears in the comic for the first time. After greeting the group with a broken string of English and Spanish, she removes the children.
