  1. I got leaked on the new "Pony Life" art style/announcement.

    What do you guys think about it?

    Personally, I don't really like the new, cartoony look the creators are going for:  so many modern kids shows have exhausted this art style to death. I don't know if this was revealed, but I really hope the show will at most have it's episode run time at 11 mins judging my the perceived tone they're going for in the show. Something like Recess, maybe. It'll probably be tedious if they keep the same running time.

      I'm not sure yet what to think about the designs... I've seen a lot worse, but I still prefer the FIM art style. However, I'm very glad the Mane 6 will have the same voices! :)

      Honestly, I like this style thanks to the same style being used in the comics.

      I'm interested in seeing where this goes. 

  2. Sorry for the necroposting, but I just want to put my own ideas here (especially with all the RariJack fuel, this might be somewhat relevant). Depends on whether we're talking EG or FiM. Different characters. I'd say: FiM: Twilight: Straight. Shows no romantic reaction with any mares in the show. Flash Sentry (unfortunately) exists, so she's straight. Fluttershy: Straight. For a shy pony, she never really shows any romantic interest except (in my unbiased opinion) in Discord. I swear they're more than friends, especially if you read the comics. Applejack: Lesbian. No romantic interest in any stallions. Based on interactions with the mane 6, I'm guessing lesbian. Rainbow Dash: Lesbian. Not only does she have a rainbow mane (not that it matters or was taken into account, but COME ON), but, as with Applejack, her interactions lead me to believe she's a lesbian. Rarity: Straight. DAMN is she straight in FiM. Not just because she's easily the most feminine, but her flirtatious obsession with some stallions in FiM has become a staple for her character. Pinkie Pie: Straight. CheesePie. I know it was only one episode, but the concept of them being lovers is adorable, so she's straight. EG: Oh, how the tables turn. Twilight: Still straight. Timber Spruce... Fluttershy: Lesbian. Plenty of FlutterDash fuel, so lesbian... Applejack: Lesbian. Still the same. RoF exists. Rainbow Dash: Lesbian. FlutterDash. Rarity: Bisexual. OBVIOUSLY, the bi mood is too extreme. Pinkie Pie: Lesbian. Not many SunPie shippers, but then there's me... Sunset Shimmer: Actually confirmed bisexual in Twitter (as is Sombra, who knew?) Anyway, time to disappear from Forums for a while. I'm too sleep drunk yet it's only 9.
  3. Well, this was it.

    MLP:FiM was a wonderful and remarkable show to me; its characters were endearing, the writing was on point, the animation was at the least dated and bland and at the most gorgeous and colorful. It was a show I made happy memories with, connected with the characters, and so much more. I think what's truly special about MLP is that it shows that kids shows can be smart, funny, and interesting for all ages. MLP, as well as other great shows, shook the boundaries of what to expect from children's entertainment.

    I haven't seen the finale. But I hope it captured all that made MLP likable; it's smart and witty dialogue, the amazing and relatable characters, the goregous coloring and lighting, hell, even the lore was awesome!

    Here's to a show that was the butt of so many memes, but turned out to be much more amazing than many could have predicted.

      The animation style was simple but the characters were still distinctive, and it didn't get in the way of the storytelling, so on the whole, it all worked out OK.

  4. I hope you all enjoy the Season 9 finale! Although I won't be joining you on your hype train, I really do hope MLP has a sincere and wonderful ending. Again, please excuse my inactivity as I am trying to avoid spoilers and just have a busy life :-P. Thank you for your understanding and have a great afternoon/morning/evening!

    Also, this:

      Good morning, my friend! :yay:

      I hope you enjoy it too! :rarity: Good luck with the spoiler avoidance – it seems to have been quite difficult for many people, myself included. :please:

      @Tacodidra Yeah, I heard about the leaks :yeahno:. Those are never any fun.

  5. Can I roll over and die?

    So, I dug up some comments I posted as a guest on TheTopTens, and honestly, I eel like face palming with every word I wrote. Here's my sample opinion I wrot for the episode "A Flurry of Emotions":

     

    A Flurry of Emotions wasn't at all an episode I had extremely high hopes for,I just thought it would be all around fun. Unfortunately, this episode includes a weak beginning,and an awful script. However,Flurry Heart steals the episode with her adorableness,and mirror example of a kid. What I'm noticing is that MLP:FIM is making more two story episodes,with one being the major focus and one being the minor. This episode does that quite well, and I loved an MLP character who liked art.A LOT. Good moral as well. A mix of bitting off more than you can chew which is WAY overdone in my little pony,but includes some try to make time with others. I also find quite remarkable that so many side characters where thrown into this episode for good purposes. A step up!

     

    Out of all the things I could leave as my mark on the Internet, too... :eww:

      @Tacodidra It's really just the grammar and spelling mistakes that make me cringe. Also the fact that the post was from only 2 years ago. 

  6. The urge to watch MLP right now is strong...

    Okay, so I cheated a little and watched the S9 finale trailer. Can you blame me?

    In fact, I haven't really kept my promise with spoilers at all, but I still haven't watched any of  S9/EQG/Rainbow Roadtrip yet, so truce? :mlp_please:

      That's the exact opposite of what I've been doing... :please: I've watched every episode, special and such (except for the most recent EqG short), but the finale trailer is something I'm avoiding. :adorkable: That's the one episode I don't want to know anything about before watching! :ticking:

    2. imawesome

      imawesome

      @Tacodidra  Makes sense. I just saw it in my recommendations an couldn't help myself. Which was probably for the worst considering my goal to not watch ANY FiM content until the Netflix release. 

    3. Tacodidra

      Tacodidra

      I can imagine it doesn't really make the waiting easier... :adorkable: Regardless, I hope enjoy the new episodes whenever you choose to watch them! :fluttershy:

  7. The urge to watch MLP is killing me right now.

    Sorry for the unannounced break; I was working as a camp counselor for a quick three weeks. 

    How is everything going?

    1. Tacodidra

      Tacodidra

      I'm fine, thanks! :kindness: I hope everything is going well for you! :fluttershy:

      As for the urge to watch MLP, I understand completely. :adorkable: I'm waiting for the next episode to air, quite impatiently. :please:

  8. Damn it, I want to watch MLP so bad what with the spoiler I just got. Must resist... ponies...

  9. Welp, just got another spoiler that it was

      You could go back and revisit old episodes of Friendship is Magic.

      @TheAnimationFanatic  Thanks for the feedback! I guess that could work, but I'd have to find a good approach to it. 

  11. Spoiler #3: Judging by a PMV I just saw,

    Spoiler

    it looks like Rarity has a love interest of some kind in the new EG special.

     I hope he doesn't become her boyfriend or anything because I've grown to ship RariJack SO MUCH. He looks like a douche bag though, doesn't he?

  12. Getting a tad bit worried about Season 9 now. 

    Although I'm aware that https://www.thetoptens.com/ is not the most reputable source for pony analysis, when I searched up "Worst My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Episodes", three Season 9 titles were in the top 10. I've already stated my opinions on why some of our fandom may still be a little too harsh, but given how The Top Tens works, either way it's a threatening warning sign. 

    Basically, The Top Tens is a platform where anyone is allowed to vote on what, for example, they find to be the worst countries to live in, best rappers, etc. What's startling about this, however, is that it's not just one person's opinion. This could go either way; maybe a bunch of uneducated dimwits pressed around on their laptop, or fair, unbiased MLP analyzers really think that three S9 title already deserve spots in the Top 10s. I don't want to dive into the comments section because The Top Tens does not mute spoilers, but if anyone can tell me if the comments are accurate, too harsh, or nonsensical bullshit that be great. I'm always striding to avoid overhype!

    Have a good evening/afternoon/morning!

      I'd guess it will be on Netflix after the season is over, that's what has happened before at least.

      It wasn't considered bad by most, but it wasn't as highly rated as the other two. And I agree, a fun episode but not necessarily a season highlight.

    3. Jefferson Steelflex

      Jefferson Steelflex

      Those 3 S9 episodes aren't even the worst S9 episodes, let alone worst episodes of the show. And seriously? Frenemies? Dark and Dawn? Both of those were great and much needed!

      @EDITH Yep. For some it was "Oh cool! Pony zombies!" for others it was "Oh great. More shitting on RD time".

      Yeah, this time I *think* I'll be staying for a bit. If I do, it will be ungodly difficult for me to dodge spoilers, though. 

  14. I swear, the new "Awesome" Rainbow Dash reaction was practically MADE for me. 

    Hopefully S9's treating our favorite rainbow maned Pegasus well?

    Just for fun, which Dashie emotion below describes Season 9 the best? (Am I TRYING to get myself over hyped?)

      In the US, they're on hiatus... but episode 14 was released in China last week (and apparently the next two are out now). :adorkable: So it might not take many weeks for the rest of the season to be out in at least one country.

      The recent RD special hasn't been well received, although its not terrible, just a bit "phoned in" - I am not sure "common ground" was really a Dashie episode, although she IS the focus pony for it; lots of continuity there though, which is nice.

      @CypherHoofthat’s probably the best way to describe it. I didn’t hate, it was kinda dull, but given I had zero expectations for it, it turned out fine for the most part 

      Edit: oh your talking about Rainbow Roadtrip :p
