I know that I've already complained about this, and odds are this thread will merge with a previous one I wrote. But I'm taking my chances anyway.
The reason I'd call Equestria Girls the DBZ of MLP is because of how ridiculously replaceable and disposable Twilight's real friends were, while their five human-counterparts become the Vegetas of this story. That's right, folks! Five characters I grew to love being replaced by cheap knock-off humans who will never be up to par with the real deals. Just like the original cast of Dragon Ball, who had to be entirely replaced with Vegeta just because he was the dark, angsty rival to Goku.
Season Four better give Twilight real pony friends actual compensation for this. If any time I see Twilight become the number one solution to everything, while her friends are reduced to the equivalent of the Dragon Ball cast when they were all replaced by Vegeta, I'm going to be pissed.
I'm just so angry and tired, right now. This show was supposed to be about the power of friendship. But Equestria Girls gave an incorrect message: That friends are replaceable objects who become obsolete once you meet up with new, "better" friends. It's what Rarity feared in the second comic-book story-arc, which eventually turned her into Nightmare Rarity!
Why did MLP become such a hypocritical mess?
