      That's one of my inspirations (fitting, considering Sailor Moon was my first anime and holds a special place in my heart).

      Mine too! You can't go wrong with Sailor Moon if you're looking for magical girl inspiration.

      Granted, a lot of inspiration is taken from the darker takes on the genre too, but I plan to balance it out with plenty of comedy and lampshading of tropes (one of the first jokes I came up with was a bit of commentary on fanservice, with Spike outright admitting he has no clue why this happens in transformations, but they'll get used to it).

  4. Rockin' the Usagi (and Diana) avatar. I dig it!

  5. "What does that number mean?"

    "It means the core is open. It means the fire we're watching with our own eyes is giving off nearly twice the radiation released by the bomb in Hiroshima. And that's every single hour -- hour after hour. 20 hours since the explosion, so 40 bombs worth by now; 48 more tomorrow. And it will not stop -- not in a week, not in a month. It will burn and spread its poison until the entire continent is dead."

  6. I definitely sympathize with you. MLP has struggled with story arcs. The Season 4 story arc, for example, was sporadic. Even Season 5 -- which was excellent overall -- suffered from a similar issue: It introduced Starlight Glimmer in an engaging premise, only to shuttle her off until the finale. They remained wedded to the narrative pacing from Seasons 1 and 2 -- but those seasons worked because the major conflicts (Nightmare Moon, Discord, Chrysalis) were self-contained. Ironically, Season 1 probably has the most successful story arc in the show's history: the Grand Galloping Gala.
  7. What loose ends are there to address? To the best of my memory, Spike's parents have never come up as a topic of scrutiny. His character isn't at all defined by his parents' status. MLP's arcs are usually contained to a single season. Overarching closure is less an issue here than in, say, Endgame or Steven Universe. Seasons 1-3 culminating with Twilight becoming a princess was about a close as we came to narrative bookends.

    As hated as the DiC dub is (and rightly so), I feel so much nostalgia for it.

      I have not, sad to say. I keep watching the first season over and over.

      Dunno why.

      Also, Rei x Usagi is my OTP.

      Interesting! I highly recommend checking out the rest of the show. The DiC/Cloverway dub is iffy at best, but they apparently redubbed the series a few years ago. Can't speak for the general quality of those dubs, though.

      Yeah, it was Viz that redubbed the series, and they are AMAZING.

  11. I'm partial to Speaker D and Space General, but I was just made by the Presbyterian Church.
  12. Ah, I see you are a man of culture as well.
  13. As a follow up, "Stans" reminds me of "smarks" or "marks" from wrestling lingo -- neither of which are endearing terms yet are embraced from time to time.
