    I don't have a preference. As long as the content is good, any format is fine. Although I must say I usually find 3D more spectacular and 2D more atmospheric.

    You're not wrong there.

    I personally don't consider 2d superior to 3d, nor do I see 3d as a replacement to 2d.

  2. I prefer 2d for organic character animation, various effects (like water, fire, dust, explosions, lightning, etc), painted backgrounds, deep canvas style texturing, and other organic animation. I prefer 3d for robots, vehicles, machinery, props, large creatures, complex environments, action shots, CGI effects, references for 2d animation, etc.

    Interesting. You may be correct in suspecting this to be G5, although I personally don't find the visual style here, while kind of cute, to be particularly appealing, particularly the shape and proportions of the face - they're kind of trapped in an uncanny valley between more horse-like (squarer, more prominent muzzles) and more human-like (particularly the shape of the faces) features combined to create a simultaneously bland and obtuse style lacking in the streamlined elegance of G4's visual designs. I...don't know what else to say here.

    I guess they wanted to go with a mixture of G4's style and the gens before it.

  4. I just had a thought. I don't believe that the 2021 film and 2022 show isn't actually a G5, but is more akin to Beast Wars. BW served as a continuation of Transformers G1, while having no connection whatsoever to G2. Like in BW, the original shown is being mentioned as a point in history. Same universe, different time period. I'm fairly convinced that the real G5 will be in a separate universe like all the other MLP gens. What about you?

    No, they were unpleasant in their first appearance, and unlike certain other characters 

      Reveal hidden contents

    Flim and Flam, Garble, Snips and Snails 

    The writers were smart enough to not bring them back apart from Flashbacks 

    The webcomic Dash Academy pretty much nailed it in their portrayal.

    Nah, they were just meant to be the “bully characters”. It was interesting to see them come together in “The Cutie Remark”, though, when Twilight and Starlight were fighting and they all wanted to watch.

    This is why I have such a beef with bully characters. They're not even real characters unless they have some sort of development. Otherwise, they add nothing to the story whatsoever.

    I'm a nihilist in general. I do not want to watch a propaganda piece about the evils of capitalism by a capitalist company. Because the hypocrisy reaches no end. I like MLP because it is an escape from the awful planet we live on. I do not want to see human based politics in a fictional world.





    I bet you'd watch a movie or show that talks about how bad socialism is.

    I swear, people like this only get mad when something has commentary for politics that they disagree with. It's always right wing anti-SJWs that try to make this kind of point. A show isn't bad because it's "political", it's bad because it's poorly written. It doesn't matter if it's political or not. If the writing is trash, then it's worth complaining about.

    Absolutely not!

    Flash animation worked perfectly for FIM, and also in some degree for Equestria Girls.


    I think traditional animation would make FIM look more like G1 or Tales, and we really don't want that, do we?

    It'd look more like this, which I'd love to see.

    Way back in season one, episodes one and two, I was a bit disappointed that the battle to save Celestia from Nightmare Moon wasn't a season long story arc. 

    That can be a five parter instead.

    Also, a theatrical film can be released every year. Episodes like Return of Harmony, A Canterlot Wedding, The Crystal Empire, and Twilight's Kingdom can be films. What I'd do in the beginning of FiM season 2 is introduce Shining Armor and Cadence as they visit Twilight to announce their wedding.

  10. If I did a reboot, it wouldn't consist of one, but two separate shows.

    The first show would be just like the one we have, an episodic, slice of life oriented series meant to build the characters. The second show would be a serialized, adventure oriented series where the characters face villains. The latter show would have a self contained plot in each season.

  11. In your opinion, what do you think the setting of G5 should be? Should it be one specific type of setting? Should include other elements of different setting types? I personally think it could be mostly medieval based, with some hints of steampunk in it.

  12. If the movie was instead a trilogy of films, here's how I think it could've gone down.

    The first movie would be the same, until Storm King gets his magic staff. In here, he actually gives Tempest Shadow her horn, and she is thrilled of it. Twilight tries to convince Tempest not to keep serving Storm King and that there's still some good in her, but she ends up getting turned into stone. As a result, Twilight's friends end up getting captured by Storm King's forces and Canterlot is completely taken. The film would end with the new allies (Capper, Celaeno, and Skystar) forming an alliance and working to take down Storm King's forces and free the princesses and Twilight's friends.

    In the second film,the plot would be about the new characters, along with Starlight Glimmer, fighting against Storm King. During the film, we find out that Storm King has his own master, one who is the reason why Storm King has his kingdom (though his name is not yet revealed until the end of the film. Later in the film, Twilight's friends become freed. In the climactic battle, Storm King is defeated, Tempest Shadow becomes redeemed (on top of losing the horn Storm King gave her), and the princesses are released from their stone prison. In the epilogue, Tempest Shadow is put on trial. When Tempest is allowed to speak she says she'll accept any punishment given to her. Afterward, she also informs the princesses that Equestria is still under the threat of attack from Emperor Kharne so they can prepare, thus postponing the Friendship Festival. Right before the film ends, we see Kharne plotting to take over Equestria himself.

    The third and final film would be about Equestria banding together to stopping Emperor Kharne from taking over. At one point in the film, Kharne corrupts Twilight, and her friends have to fight to bring her back to normal. In the final battle, Kharne is defeated for once and for all, and Equestria is victorious. Ultimately, Tempest would also die in the third act of the film after her fight with Kharne. Before she dies, we see her whispering something to Twilight, but we don't hear it. During the Friendship Festival, Twilight talks to Grubber, who's sad that Tempest is gone. She tells him that Tempest's real name is Fizzlepop Berrytwist, which is what she told her before she died.

  13. Instead of having Pony Life, I think it would've been better if we had a one-off serial series animated with Toon Boom Harmony, just like how Rainbow Road Trip was done. The things it could have are a well rounded story mixing comedy, drama, action, adventure, and darker and more emotional themes, a cinematic musical score, and compelling villains. Overall, the series could have a slightly more mature tone, but still being appealing to all audiences. Like each season of the show (except S3), it can have 26 episodes, giving plenty of room for the story.

    Think that would've been good?

    Don't let the title fool you, this is actually good news. The article says that it's not being rescheduled to November because of the pandemic. That's a good thing, because the original release date was for this month. 

    Well fortunately this news has just come out.
