  1. Another Equestria Girls commission for someone on Deviant Art , this time featuring Sunset Shimmer. Their idea was that, just after the events of "Friendship Games", Sunset Shimmer's brief turn as "Daydream Shimmer" puts her in temporary contact with her friends' powers. She then gets to have a fun day or so using them to do various things: creating a ballgown, acing a zoology test (with some help from Fluttershy's animal friends) , baking a masterpiece, lifting incredible weights, and winning the 100 yard dash with ease. The ballgown in panel 2 and the cake in panel 4 are my design The extra racers in the last panel were also created by me. Sunset Shimmer's gym outfit in the last 2 panels are the commissioner's design. All other designs/backgrounds are based directly on the show.

    Ask the Equestria Girls & Spike

    Hello, everypony...Er...everybody. My name is Sunset Shimmer & I would like to welcome you all to the "Ask the Equestria Girls & Spike" thread! According to Princess Twilight Sparkle's letters, she & her friends in Equestria have been communicating with everyone for a few months now & it has been an "Enormous success in building friendships abroad!" to use her words. Now that that's out of the way, I hope that everyone enjoys this ask thread & has a great time talking to me & my friends from Canterlot High. Rules: Please keep your questions clean. No shipping questions.
  3. So my favorite character in the Mane Six of Equestria is Rainbow Dash... but my favorite of the Mane Six in the Equestria Girls setting is Applejack. Is that weird?

    Episode 9 - EG vs EQG

    Hey. Y'know what really grinds my gears? This EQG thing. ...what? Oh, no, not the actual franchise. No, I happen to be a big Equestria Girls fan. Didn't used to be, but now I love it. In fact, I denounced it pretty heavily in the beginning, so....I'm a big fat hypocrite, and I don't care. Twilight cracked horn and I don't care. I love Equestria Girls to pieces. So sue me. What grinds my gears is literally the abbreviation EQG. Why the "Q"? So, this is probably just an OCPD thing (which I have), but it seems to me that the abbreviation should be two letters. Two words, so two letters, right? Why does Q come along for the ride? I have always abbreviated it EG. Equestria. Girls. E. G. Makes sense to me. But it seems like the majority go with EQG. It bugs me. You don't abbreviate My Little Pony to MLIP, or MLPO, do you? You don't abbreviate Friendship is Magic to FRIM, do you? You don't abbreviate The Next Generation to TNEG, or Game of Thrones to GAOT. So what gives?! It's not just Equestria Girls, either. This tendency happens any time there is a Q. The letter Q just gets sucked into abbreviations. Why is Q so special? Who the hell does Q think it is?! Where does Q get off?! Well you know what I say? F*CK Q. That's what I say.
  5. A commission for someone over on Deviant Art. They wanted some bonding time between Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash and nice version of the Dazzlings. Notice they're actually happy and no longer wearing their siren necklaces. The magic of friendship wins once again! Adagio Dazzle's outfit, and the aprons worn by Sonata Dusk and Pinkie Pie, are my design. The commissioner designed the gym outfits worn in the second panel.
  6. Why does Fluttershy and Cadence wear eye shadow in the Equestira Girls universe? For Rarity it makes sense that she would wear eye shadow in the Equestira Girls because she does is Friendship is Magic, but Fluttershy and Cadence don't in Friendship is Magic, so why would they in Equestira Girls?

    Sonata Dusk Fan Club

    So, here I am, just jammin' out to some Sponge at my computer and I check out a Skype group I'm in to see my friend @FadedSkies talking about this Equestria Girl who was actually pretty. My first thought was "An EQG that doesn't look like it's straight outta Planet 9? Dis fool be trippin' " but when I saw the character herself, I was actually pleasantly surprised. Seriously, she's kinda cute. Not quite waifu material, but she's pretty gr8. I don't know anything about her other than A.) She's not Rarity and B.) She's got a great character design for an EQG. Oh, and C.) She's going to be in the upcoming Rainbow Rocks film as a member of the Dazzlings Rules of this thread copy/pasted lel -No spamming post to become biggest fans even though this rule is redundant because that's what people do anyway -This is a children’s show, and believe it or not there are younger people who go on these forums and make up a large amount of the population, please limit content to suggestive only unfortunately...well, maybe not, since she just proves that even a weird alien life form can look cute. For example you may post a picture of two ponies kissing do it, but they cannot be doing anything inappropriate aw shucks, or showing things inappropriat. -Do not post a picture of Applejack in the Rainbow Dash fan club, because Applejack belongs in the Applejack fan club. Feel free to post Rarity where you like, though. -Do not hate on another fan club, for example posting in the Fluttershy forum "Twilight is better!" unless you're proclaiming that Rarity is better, because that is true. -I (do not) have the ability to decide whether you are doing something inappropriate or not, if I (report you) deem you are doing something unnecessary and I ask you to stop, please stop. Common Sense my little ponies. -All of MLP Forums rules still apply. disclaimer swag Alright, yeahh. It'd be awesome if she actually was well written Dunno what I'm expecting, but meh. I made this, now peace.

    Mirror Magic

    Magic, villains, destruction and ponies! - Yes, ponies! Mirrors or science - which one went too far? Seriously though, it wasn't bad, don't get me wrong. That's true there was one of the 'clichiest' (don't question that word) cliche stories, that could happen, but that's what this show is all about, so personally I can't really complain, what's more, I like how it usually goes. I can see why the 'happy endings' can be getting too obvious, thus boring for some people, but for the bad endings and stuff, real life is enough, so let's keep that balance. Literally, the first thing I was thinking of, when I saw where the plot is going was this one- Well, that went quickly! It seemed so obvious, yet I kinda thought it will not happen. Who would guess she'll get the magic to her hands and cause troubles? Oh right, that's what always happens. Oh those flashbacks... Once again we see somebody, who wants more power (fame in this case) then becomes a villain, destroys few things, gets defeated (-from some point of view) and receives a second chance in the end. A lovely well-known ending, that reminds me of the very first pony-content I ever saw - the first Equestria Girls movie. It brings back some memories... Personally I really love to see things getting better like this, so I think I got all I needed. Maaaybe Juniper's motives weren't super serious, but what we can expect from a normal human? She's not from the magical world with ponies, so while being that young and unaware of magic - could she really want to rule over the whole world already? For me it was good enough, what's more - pretty realistic to our world I can't deny. I know lack of all that magic can be quite boring, but I think I prefer this, than complete science, that doesn't make any sense. Though still, we got some, because where the magic came from in the first place? I don't think mirrors can do that. Just a random flow of magic randomly getting into the mirror at not random time? This is pretty suspicious! But well, if not that, then what this all would be about? Let's pretend it's a totally normal thing. Sunset Shimmer coming back to Equestria was something that made me interested - many people were waiting for that aaaaand while it's not really what they would like to get, it's still close enough! It was just a moment, but I agree I would love to see more of this. There's a whole story to tell about Sunset. I'd like to see her talking with Princess Celestia once again and stuff like this- that itself could be a nice episode or even a whole movie. The ending was cliche, that's true, but that's the ending I like, as I have mentioned before. I'm happy it ended up like this, not gonna complain. I don't mind how many times I'll get to see that kind of ending - it's always nice. So, generally - I think I really liked that episode. The more I think of all of those, the more I like them. At first I was kinda unsure of how it will go, but in my opinion it's going pretty well. I still feel the lack of normal Twilight Sparkle - for some reason I don't like Sci-Twi along with the whole Crystal Prep Academy from the very beginning (namely "Friendship Games"). That 'new' Twilight is absolutely different and more.. helpless? ~ unlike other characters, that are similar to their pony reflections. That's probably just me, I'm not going to judge anything, I just really can't get used to her. Anyway, that was a really nice episode in my opinion. Totally looked like the first Equestria Girls Movie, but with different characters and much shorter length. PLOT : Juniper Montage acquires a magical mirror and seeks revenge on Twilight and her friends for ruining her chances to play as Daring Do in a movie and become a star. Sunset Shimmer makes a quick visit in Equestria and brings Starlight Glimmer to the human world. Juniper imprisons girls in her magical mirror, which later grants her more power and complete obsession on being a star. Starlight tries to convince her, that there are other ways and revenging is something she may regret. She offers her friendship and shares her experience with similar desires in the past, which makes Juniper fix mistakes she made and release Twilight along with her friends. She receives a 'second chance' and becomes friends with the others in the end. FOCUS : Sunset Shimmer; Starlight Glimmer; Juniper Montage (as villain; later- friend) SONGS : None

    Movie Magic

    The action, the suspense, the mystery and plot twists! That's what this episode was about. Okay, maybe not that much, but it totally felt like it was a Daring Doo Scooby Doo X Equestria Girls crossover. There even was a talking dog named ScooSpike, who likes to eat, duh! Seriously though, it was a nice episode, can't really complain. Plot: It really felt like it was an episode from Scooby Doo. Not sure if references were intended, but they were visible. Nevertheless it was good enough. There was action and tons of explosions! The whole volcano collapsed, duh!!! This episode was less focused on the Magic of Friendship - it was pretty generic. Equestrian magic still feels kinda out of place, but at least the science hasn't go too far. The ending was less obvious, though still cliche, but well, that's what MLP is all about, so can't complain! Episode focuses on: Each character had their moments and it all was nicely balanced. Songs: None So generally, I liked the episode.

    Dance Magic

    I don't see a thread for this, so --- Yell at me if I did wrong. I really like Equestria Girls Series, because that's where my pony adventure began. That's why I was hyped for the EQG Episodes! What are your thoughts about Dance Magic? As for me~ It's kiiiinda not the same anymore. I really liked it, but it was... slightly empty? Things were kinda happening too fast. It was noticeable, that some events were forced, in order to introduce next scenes, though after rewatching it, I think it's generally not that bad. We've got some cliche ending and stuff, but well, that's the typical pony happy end, so that's nothing I could complain about. I really don't mind that. Rarity yelled, Rarity cried, she's so cute when she's angry. It's still hard to get used to Sci-Twi - it's just not the same. She's a totally different character and talks much less. I really miss the normal Twilight Sparkle. To be honest, it's hard to get used to all of those new characters from Crystal Prep, but I'll give them time. At first I was like 'nuuuu there will be problems', but I see, that they can be nice.. I hope. This episode wasn't filled with action, explosions, nor even pony magic, that's true. Well, there was a tiny little bit at the end, but nothing significant - only pony tails and ears. Maybe that's better, as there was too much science going in third and fourth movie. Anyway, I really liked the episode.

    Alternate Universe Ideas

    We saw in MLP: FiM that different worlds exist from Canterlot High to the dark versions of Equestria from The Cutie Remark. What kind of alternate Equestria do you think could exist? I came up with concepts that are different from the original Equestria down below. Feel free to make your own. In an alternate Equestria... Spike changes back and forth from filly to baby dragon thanks to Twilight's magic hatching him. Diamond Tiara is a Pegasus and Silver Spoon is a unicorn. Sweetie Belle is really Screwball, who just wants to have a normal pony life. Discord is married to Derpy and both take care of their hybrid pony/draconequus children. Pinkie Pie is the princess of friendship and has her own chocolate castle that will never melt. Applejack owns a baby hydra. Fluttershy is a friendly changeling who takes love from worms. Rarity's dream is to be a ice skater. Rainbow Dash has a part time job as a waitress at the Cloudsdale Hayburger Queen. Twilight used a spell to turn into a Smooze to teach a friendship lesson, but she hasn't been able to change back into a pony since.

    Equestria Girls

    Hey, guys. As most of us know, Equestria Girls has come out today and I thought I would like to do a review on it. I must warn you that there are spoilers. Tell me what you think. ~David
  17. Japanese company Kotobukiya has announced Bishoujo Statuettes on the Equestria Girls series are in the works. What characters would you guys like to see the most? Personally I'd want the Sunset Shimmer one.
  18. Sunset asking that Starlight is Twilight's student in "Mirror Magic" and Starlight saying yes indicates that this takes place before season 7. Do to the fact that Starlight was not in "Dungeons and Discord" could say after the mane 6 left to Yakyakistan Starlight went with Sunset to the EQG world and might have been a little confused about the difference between a friendship mission and a "overnight goodwill tour", and after returning being there for a few days she might have gotten a habit of using the EQG dialog such as hand which would explain why Starlight used the word hand twice in "Every Little Thing She Does". Which would make sense having "Mirror Magic" take place between "Dungeons and Discord" and "Every Little Thing She Does".

    Legend Of Everfree

    I noticed the people in charge of putting up this threads have gone silent and with Legends of Everfree already up on Youtube(No, I will not share it) I decided to make this thread to discuss or review it. So what did you think of it? For those you haven't seen and waiting for it to appear on Netflix on Saturday, why you are you in this thread? This for people who've already watched it and it will be fuuuullll of spoilers. Oh also use the spoiler BBCode( the code is : <spoiler></spoiler>, just replace the "<>" with "[ ]"), just in case. ________________________________________________________________________________________ With that out of the way here are my thoughts My Review
  20. One of my biggest peeves in reviewing is giving something a calculated score, because it's very difficult if not impossible to reduce the quality to such a mark. Plus, whenever many people see a score, they tend to not read the review at all and rely on the score/grade itself as proof for purchase. Nonetheless, if I were to grade the following based on the following items below, they would be the followings below the first rule. The grades are respective and separated to the following categories: Season 1 Season 2 Season 3 Season 4 Season 5 Season 6 Season 7 MLP: The Movie Season 8 The Best Gift Ever Equestria Girls series, RR animated shorts, specials, and IDW comic/annual Main Comic Series* Micro-Series Friends Forever If you want to see my order of every FIM episode from best to worst (with grades), click here.

    Aria Blaze Fan Club

    Aria Blaze is one of the Dazzlings in Equestria Girls Rainbow Rocks. She's not very popular but still deserves some love too. The rules are: 1. No spamming. 2. No inappropriate photos. (Suggestive photos are fine.) 3. Do not post a photo of another pony here, unless Aria is included in the picture. 4. Don't hate on other fan clubs. 5. Follow all MLP Forums rules. Now, here are some photos of her I found. Enjoy them! Have fun!
  22. I thought this series was done for. By August of 2017 Equestria Girls had fallen so low that new content was being cheaply outsourced. A new series was reportedly on the horizon, but one look at the so-called "Summertime Shorts," which were so awkward and poorly-made that they almost resembled a bootleg version of the series, gave little reason to hope. Surely this was a series with nothing new to say, and which the company making it had no faith in. Some moderately satisfying music videos were being released at the same time, and yet, the simple fact that these were sharing space with such cheap junk was truly dispiriting. The new series, which premiered on November 2nd on the "Discovery Family GO!" mobile app, didn't necessarily bring big changes to the series' aesthetic or narrative styles. In a lot of ways, it was doing the same things that My Little Pony had been doing for years. But none of it was cheaply outsourced, and moreover, one big thing was different. It would take a while to really become clear, but what the new Equestria Girls series finally brought to the table was a renewed sense of focus. All of the various identities which the series had grasped at over the years were finally synthesized into a coherent whole, there was a consistent focus on expanding the characters and the world, and best of all, this series was more consistently entertaining than either branch of My Little Pony has been in years. If it's not quite as substantial as the best My Little Pony stories, it does an incredibly satisfying job of setting the groundwork. In all fairness, many of the things this new series does were first seen in those musical "Summertime Shorts." For all their simiplicity, those offered catchy songs which expanded on these characters, pushing them in directions which are different from their pony counterparts while still being recognizable. "Monday Blues" shows Sunset and Twilight's home lives, whereas "Shake Things Up" and "Coinky-Dink World" give Applejack and Pinkie, respectively, part-time jobs which are noticeably different from those of the pony versions of these characters. Much more than even the Equestria Girls movies, these shorts began to establish how these characters live their daily lives, and how they fit into the world around them. Indeed, establishing those relationships is much of the appeal of the new Equestria Girls, which in its first season has found several inventive ways to fill in the details of its world while also establishing a consistent style. This new series contains both simple slice-of-life vignettes and more intense stories about magical threats, and what's most impressive about it is how cleanly the magical and mundane aspects of the series fit together. Frequently, the girls will use their superpowers for mundane purposes, and exploring the effects of Equestrian magic on the world is given equal weight to simply learning about the lives of the protagonists. Refreshingly, there's very little emphasis on monsters of the week, and in the first season, only two of the shorts address Equestrian magic in any serious way. Instead, that's mostly left for the longer "specials," which attempt to provide higher stakes and more thematic substance. The series is more or less broken up into three different formats: one is the regular series of 3-minute shorts, another consists of interactive videos in which you can choose the ending, and the third comprises two 45-minute specials. The regular series features the least emphasis on continuity, but it also includes most of the significant additions to the series' characters and world. One titled "A Fine Line" establishes that some characters from Friendship is Magic aren't even real in the human world, whereas another titled "Display of Affection" introduces art as one of Sunset Shimmer's interests. Other episodes will simply create brief scenarios in which the characters can bounce off of each other and show off their charms, and yet others double down on the show's magical element to create more fantastical vignettes. Perhaps the weakest entries in this series come from an ill-advised detour to a beach setting, which remains quirky and even offers a couple of genuinely funny shorts, but which also has moments of uncharacteristic cutesy pandering and generally less creative scenarios. The strongest, meanwhile, are divided in subject matter: "The Finals Countdown" and "So Much More to Me" are both incredibly catchy music numbers which have unusually solid lyrical themes for this show, whereas "A Little Birdie Told Me" and "Last Day of School" build great punchlines from these characters' personalities. The vast majority are set inside Canterlot High itself, and we even see the girls going to class every once in a while, as in the latter two aforementioned shorts. Even their band gets the occasional reference, as the short "Road Trippin' with Granny Smith" is specifically about the Rainbooms getting to a performance venue on time. The show keeps a very loose timeline, which certainly make all of its disparate parts feel more cohesive, but it also presents scenarios in ways which make sense for the characters and the world. Magical problems come up only when they disrupt the Girls' lives, and most of the extracurricular activities seen are either simple enough to occur on weekends or specifically take place within the school. There's also vague hints of chronology: none of the shorts following "Last Day of School" actually takes place in the school, and all of them except "So Much More to Me" focus on the girls' jobs. Despite that, it's never entirely clear whether the Girls have these jobs during the school year or just in the summer, especially given that Rarity in particular still works even before the "Last Day of School" short, to the extent of getting something of a promotion. The "chose-your-ending" series, meanwhile, is genuinely surprising in how effectively it uses the gimmick. Despite featuring two of the weakest episodes in "Text Support" and "Opening Night," an unexpected number of the endings are genuinely funny or sweet, and there's even a running plot in several of them. Essentially, these chronicle a play being put on by Canterlot High, and there are even certain elements of character progression throughout, most notably in the form of Fluttershy being cast in a supporting part. Most of the main characters get their own episode, and although Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash are left out, they're regularly featured in the various endings. Even in the aforementioned weaker instalments, the characters remain their charms, let down by the quality of the jokes rather than by poor behaviour. The plot is kept consistent by making all of the endings essentially the same, with the only difference being how the predetermined conclusion is reached. This unfortunately doesn't leave much room for character development, which is an issue shared with the regular shorts, but there are hints of it: several shorts depict Fluttershy moving past her stage fright, while "Stressed in Show" involves a minor moral about taking a break when work is causing too much anxiety. It all comes together in a far more coherent manner than it has any right to, and the play itself is genuinely endearing both despite and because of its amateurish nature. Alas, they were released on YouTube with a significant gap in between, despite all of those elements of continuity, which suggests an lingering carelessness on the distribution end. The success of short-form Equestria Girls is put in stark relief with the relative awkwardness of the longer specials, which on the YouTube playlist are both cut into five different parts. Both are deeply formulaic and predictable, and both touch lightly on themes which are never sufficiently developed. Despite this, both are fairly entertaining, even if their respective attempts at seriousness get in the way. The first is titled either "Forgotten Friendship: Sunset Shimmer's Saga" or "Most Likely to Be Forgotten" depending on where you look, and it's admittedly the series' most significant attempt at emotional depth in a while. Indeed, it's a more successful stab at melodrama than either the 2017 specials or "Legend of Everfree," and it has a lot of good ideas: forcing Sunset to return to Equestria, a relatively complex antagonist, and a genuinely charming supporting role involving Trixie. But "Forgotten Friendship" is much too formulaic to make good on most of those ideas, and hits way too many familiar beats for its stakes to feel legitimate. It's immediately obvious that the status quo will be restored by the end, and the special is never quite insightful enough to make up for that. Nonetheless, "Forgotten Friendship" finds a lot of entertaining moments in that interim, especially from the pony Twilight Sparkle back in Equestria and from Trixie in the human world. The latter is the character who gets the most development, whereas Sunset is largely the same person at the start that she is at the end. Early on, and especially in the insufferable first part, Trixie seems to just be her usual egocentric self, but by the end she's revealed a degree of insecurity beneath her mask of bravado, which in turn makes her decision to help Sunset out all the more endearing. Indeed, if "Forgotten Friendship" has a main theme, it's about moving on from failure. Trixie manages to do that, and becomes a nicer person by finding someone who can relate, whereas the villain, named Wallflower Blush, tries to overwrite her own failures with Equestrian magic. The problem with Wallflower is that her motivations don't make much sense. Early on, they simply seem selfish, because they mostly stem from jealousy of Sunset, although there's also a weirdly contrived thread about everyone ignoring her for no apparent reason. Later, those motivations become actively confusing, as in the ending she says something vague about erasing bad social experiences, which in turn raises the question of why she got so angry at Sunset in the first place. Furthermore, Sunset doesn't bring anything new to that theme, so focusing on her generally prevents the special from exploring its more interesting ideas. A bigger problem is that this is a story about memory which doesn't show much of the characters' history. Wallflower's own past is decently relatable, but in the vague strokes provided, it's unable to justify her actions to the extent that would be required to make her sympathetic. Meanwhile, this is the story to finally feature Sunset's reunion with Princess Celestia, but in execution the meeting is so bland that it would have been better not to have them reunite at all. We see Celestia forgive Sunset, but of course she would. "Forgotten Friendship" barely suggests any specifics of their relationship, so the reunion is ultimately meaningless. At the very least, Sunset's behaviour here finally provides a link back to her past as a villain, but it's clearly presented as a lapse which she needs to get over, and otherwise there's nothing new that we learn about her here. Despite all that's entertaining about it, "Forgotten Friendship" tells us nothing about Sunset's past, present, or future, so what's even the point? Why did this story need to be told? To some extent, the same can be said about the second short, "Rollercoaster of Friendship." The difference, however, is that this second short doesn't take itself seriously at all, so even though it's even messier and less developed than its predecessor, it tends to feel a lot more like self-parody. Like "Forgotten Friendship," this one uses many of the cliches common to both My Little Pony shows, but it's also constantly mocking those same cliches, and spends way more time on simple vignettes. The result is something which would probably have been better had it just chopped the best vignettes into individual shorts, but which is nonetheless consistently funny from start to finish. Indeed, it doesn't even have an unfunny section like the first part of "Forgotten Friendship," and the results are some of the most entertaining moments in the entire series. Some of these, like Sunset and Twilight struggling with a ring toss, go as far as to codify the personalities of characters who until recently had been lacking. Alas, like "Forgotten Friendship," the main problem is the villain, Vignette Valencia. On the one hand, she's very funny, making frequent tossed-off references to her own villainy, and her sheer vapidity and selfishness makes her come across almost like comic relief. On the other, though, the special makes frequent toothless attempts to project deeper themes onto her, which only ever drags the story down. For instance, she makes some comments about focus testing which don't get nearly enough focus to have any bite, and the ending tries to redeem her by suggesting she'd be a perfectly decent person if only she had real friends. Even if there's some truth in that, that ending is the first time Vignette shows any deeper motivation than pure selfishness, and the special largely fails to explore her past in any detail. She works best as a joke character, and the special would have done much better if it had somehow turned her reformation into a joke as well. Meanwhile, there's a very simple story about Applejack clashing with a very stressed out Rarity over weird things happening at the park, and while this is generally handled as well as it could be, it's too simplistic to be particularly compelling. Applejack's envy of Rarity isn't particularly sympathetic, and is drowned out by her genuine concern for her friends anyway, whereas Rarity's stress is frequently amusing but not given nearly as much focus or internal conflict as Applejack. Neither of the two attempt to listen to the other, and while that does make sense, it ultimately robs the story of nuance which might have made it more interesting. Nevertheless, we actually do learn more about Applejack and Rarity here than we did about Sunset in "Forgotten Friendship," even if it's just a little more detail on their respective efforts at career advancement, so that's nice. It's also a good example of how these shorts have given Sunset Shimmer more of a personality. Despite being arguably the most appealing part of Equestria Girls in the past, she's often been somewhat bland, as until the new series she simply wasn't given enough in the way of flaws or interests. The new series does a lot to fill in the blanks: we see her paint in "Display of Affection" and draw in "Super Squad Goals," which suggests that she's artistically inclined, which strikes an interesting contrast with the technological and scientific focus occasionally hinted at in prior materials. Meanwhile, "Rollercoaster of Friendship" finally codifies her anger issues, which had been vaguely implied ever since Friendship Games, and adds the new dimension that she has a mean competitive streak. All of these serve to give her a unique identity in the cast, which is impressive for a character who until recently was little more than a watered-down version of Twilight Sparkle. Speaking of which, Twilight consistently acts more like her pony self now than the doormat we saw in Legend of Everfree and "Dance Magic." Although the natural penchant for leadership is absent, all of her other qualities are evident, and even with a slightly more passive personality, she's still recognizable as Twilight Sparkle, which I couldn't always say about her in the past. It's fun enough to see her constantly producing new robotics projects, but we also see her obsessive love of learning and her tendency towards anxiety. Making her more closely resemble her pony counterpart is a good call for the series, as the characters of Friendship is Magic are strong enough to carry the show on their own, and keeping them allows the new series to import their charms from the original show. There are some differences, but they're all explicable when the girls are viewed as younger, less mature versions of the same people. Equestria Girls, then, has all of the advantages of a prequel with all the freedom of a reboot. Even some secondary characters get fleshed out a little more: Microchips, a random geek with bit parts in the earlier movies, demonstrates a quirky bravado in a couple supporting roles; Maud Pie has a short largely focused on her, and is as delightful as ever; Zephyr Breeze shows up on a couple occasions with his winningly obnoxious personality still intact. The latter two in particular highlight what I think is one of the most appealing parts of Equestria Girls: seeing what characters from Friendship is Magic would be like in a more mundane scenario. The current series has proved itself very willing to balance that with further development of the musical and magical aspects of the franchise, and that's why it seems so confident in its own identity. The new Equestria Girls is hardly perfect, and it's not yet substantial enough to attract new fans, but it's as charming as My Little Pony has been in ages. If Equestria Girls originated on shaky foundations, the new series finds a fresh identity for it without betraying what made the original series so special, and it also sets itself up with limitless potential. In a lot of ways, it's the fresh restart for these characters which Friendship is Magic has been desperately in need of for years now, and the short format works wonders for creating charming and funny scenarios without the burden of moralizing. Fans of the series' magical and dramatic elements will find something here, but fans of more mundane and silly stories have plenty to love as well. This is a series which has finally found itself.

  24. By this point, I think it's a safe assumption that Discovery Family has released the last of the most recent batch of shorts. So, now is probably an ideal time to reflect on them all. Personally, even though I felt the first three (the ones that flashbacked to the Fall Formal) were a little underwhelming, they really picked up from "Monday Blues" on. I think the best things they did was showing us a handful of things that they simply couldn't in the TV movies, like we finally know more about the human CMCs and several subtle looks at Sunset's personal life. I also highly appreciate how we finally get a more slice of life look in the world of EqG, which is something I felt prior to now wasn't explored quite as far as it could be. My personal favorite is "Monday Blues", since it was just extremely relatable on every front and it serves as a fantastic reminder of why so many of us love Sunset Shimmer. But really, most of the music videos were genuinely meaningful, if not just straight-up catchy. Even Boulder Media soon found their footing and grew into a style that, while not identical to DHX's, has a nice, fluid charm of its own. It's easily the best collection of shorts EqG has turned out, with the amount of variety and entertainment value they brought to the table. So, what did you think of the set as a whole? Do you have any favorites in particular? Did they make you any more excited for the YouTube series we're getting in November?
