My Thoughts on Episode 100 "Slice of Life"

Since the much anticipated Slice of Life came out last see I want to give my thoughts on it. I thought it was a great episode because it was special and stood out from other episodes. It focused on background ponies which were mostly only known by the fandom and I think its cool to have a whole episode dedicated to them because Id much rather see the featured on official content than fan content. It may be considered fan pandering but still it was special and very different. I thought the weddin

What I'm doing at the moment and my plans for MLP:FiM

So last week I made the decision to start fresh with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic by rewatching the series by starting with the first episode and just rewatch every episode in order. I actually just rewatched Friendship is Magic parts 1 and 2 and my enthusiasm has returned a little bit but not as much as when I first watched. I decided to restart since I miss some of the earlier episodes and I was becoming less attached to the characters, and overall setting. And I feel like a lot of thes

I'm Starting Fresh with MLP: FiM

Now I might have reached the point where I feel like I really need to take a break from MLP: FiM and the fandom in general. Remember how Tommy Oliver rage quit the brony fandom? Well I seem to be having a very similar situation he was in. I started watching FiM in April 2014 but didn't get into it until June of that year, and that summer I was obsessed with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, I was watching like 6 episodes every day and saw most of the series, I was very enthusiastic of the sho

Movie Review: Pokémon: Kyurem vs. the Swords of Justice

Now the MLP: FiM movie which actually features ponies and not the human versions from Equestria Girls doesn't come out until 2017. So with MLP movies the only ones we have are the Equestria Girls ones from G4 and there's one from G1 from 1986 but I haven't seen it so I can't judge it. But Equestria Girls series while I thought was okay was too cliche and just not very good.   But I would like to talk about a movie that's not from the MLP franchise but still technically pony related, and is IMO

I feel like the morals in FiM get overlooked

I don't know if its just me but I feel like the morals and messages usually get overlooked because most fans are more concerned about the Plot or character development. I feel like the messages and morals are one of the best parts about this show along with songs and characters. Most shows of this target audience have some kind of educational value. Maybe not on the same level as shows as Dora the Explorer but more similar to Arthur or Hey Arnold. I mean I feel like a lot of these messages are i

My normal expectations from MLP: FiM

I just like to tell about my typical expectations from MLP:FiM since I first watched it last year.   For the most part light-hearted relaxing cartoon featuring cute characters, good morals, stories that deliver the morals, sometimes interesting adventures and some dark, serious moments on occasion. And a lot of good episodes and some dud episodes such as Dragon Quest.   Are these good enough expectations and should I keep them?

Disclaimer on "Is MLP: FiM being over-analyzed?"

I'd like to make a disclaimer on that blog entry I did. What I meant by the stories didn't have to be the greatest to be good, I meant this show doesn't always have to rely on dark,epic,deep,serious storytelling. Just for the most part a lighthearted story good enough to implement a message. I'll admit there are a few episodes I thought were bad like Putting Your Hoof Down or Dragon Quest. There are some plots that really confused me such as Crystal Empire but It was still good and I appreciate

Are we expecting too much from MLP: FiM?

Now I feel like there are several members in this community who are expecting too much out of FiM. What I mean by that is that there are are people who are expecting tons of episodes with more dark, epic, more serious feels to them. But I feel for the most part this is a slice of life show with some good messages that's less stressful than other shows with some few Disney style moments on occasion. I feel like most of the plots revolve around the situation of the message they are trying to tell.

Is MLP: FiM being over-analyzed?

Now this is something about MLP that has been on my mind for like the past few weeks. I feel like the show is been over-analyzed. In a nutshell I feel like many of the episode plots are being taken way too seriously and the morals get overlooked. And sometimes the plots are questionable (sometimes with plotholes) but I feel they are done on purpose to tell the message similar to an Arthur episode.   I already made a full paragraph about it in Life Advice: https://mlpforums.com/topic/130327-fan

My Top 10 Favorite Pokémon

I play Pokémon for the simple streamlined yet deep gameplay and of course the wide variety of different monsters, some adorable, some cool, some beautiful. So with over 700 Pokémon currently with the roster growing every few years, I like to present my Top 10 Favorite Pokémon of all time. Now Pokémon like Pikachu and Charizard are not on this list because they are too obvious and just don't like them as much as the ones I have listed.       Here We Go!       #10: Greninja

Ganondorf Rifing King Sombra (Fanart)

So I made this funny fanart of Ganondorf riding King Sombra, because Ganondorf has a personality like Sombra and Ganondorf has a dark steed. So I thought it would be funny to make this.   http://thejleeteam.deviantart.com/art/Ganondorf-riding-King-Sombra-536961350

My Top 10 Anime Shows

Anime is japanese animation. What defines anime that sets it apart from western animation. I feel the best way to describe anime is that it has a beautiful detailed art style and more involved stories. I don't watch anime as much as western cartoons but I'll share with you my top 10 Favorite Anime Shows.           Here We Go!           #10: Sonic X                     This is an anime based on the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It follows Sonic and fri

New Nintendo 3DS XL Review

I decided to do a review on the New Nintendo 3DS XL which came out in February. I've got it since the launch so here is my review. Now everyone was shocked when this was announced but I was okay because I felt like I needed to upgrade anyway since my original launch 3DS died the same month.   The New 3DS XL is an upgrade to the Original 3DS XL but this version has new features including faster processing power, Amiibo Support, Face Tracking 3D, and Built in C Stick and ZL and ZR buttons. It's

Why I love Twilicorn

CONTROVERSIAL OPINION TIME!   I'm probably going to get some hate for this but the truth is I actually love Twilicorn and think she's a good idea. In fact I prefer Alicorn Twilight far more than unicorn Twilight. Yeah I know it sounds controversial but let me explain why.   Now Twilight represents the element of magic and Celestia states she never saw a unicorn with such raw magic abilities so unicorn Twilight probably has more powerful magic than any other unicorn. She is

My Top 10 Disney Shows

Disney is like the King of animated films. They put out some amazing quality family friendly films for just about everyone to enjoy. But they even put out some really good TV shows as well. The first list I did was my top 10 Nick shows and my second was Cartoon Network shows. I'll admit Disney is probably my favorite because they put out some shows that are more memorable to me than Nick or CN, so I present my Top 10 Favorite Disney Shows of All Time.   Here We Go!   #10: Bear in

My budget, forum activity, etc.

As my High School graduation gets closer and closer, specifically on May 29th, I have been on a budget lately and I don't want to spend much money until I get a part time job hopefully in August or September. But I'm really eager to pick up some older games as soon as I can including Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky, Pokémon Conquest, Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, New Super Mario Bros., Super Mario 64 DS, Super Mario Sunshine, Paper Mario the Thousand Year Door, Luigi's Mansion: Dark

So I present to you my Top 10 Favorite Nickelodeon Shows of All Time.   Here We Go!   #10: iCarly     I actually think this is a good sitcom.

RANT: Video Game Fanboys and Platform Wars

Now here's a topic I've been wanting to let out for a while and talk about what might be my biggest gripe with the gaming industry. Fanboys and platform wars. Now it's okay if you have a favorite company, platform, game series, genre or whatever and have simple preferences because I'm sure everyone does.   However I don't like when someone goes arrogant and act like their preferred platform or company is perfect. I also hate how people bash on a company without talking about positives. Here ar

My favorite cartoon/TV show lists

So I decided to do a top 10 list of my favorite cartoons/TV shows of all time. I'm a huge cartoon enthusiast so I decided to do a top 10. However I have so many favorites spread throughout different networks that doing a general list would be hard for me and it's hard to pick a number 1 favorite. I decided to say shows instead of just cartoons because I have a few favorite live action shows too. I won't combine all into one.   So I decided to make 5 seperate lists of favorite shows from a diff

What I got from the Flea Market

Today I went to the Flea Market specifically Denio's in California. This may be my final trip to Denio's since I will be moving in a few weeks. So here's what I got:   First I got Spongebob the Movie for Gamecube I actually liked this game better than the actual movie and it's a really good platformer. I always had the PS2 version but I got rid of it years ago. So I got the Gamecube version   Next I got A Donkey Kong Country cartoon VHS tape called Donkey Kong Country: Legend of the Cryst
