Sometime around November 2014, I had known already about bronies and how big the show was. Finally I decided to sit down and watch the first episode and at the time I felt ok about it. But then a few days later I started thinking about the show so I went back continued watching it and before I knew it I had watched all of season 1. Then the show had me sucked in and I watched season 2, 3, and 4 & both of the equestria girls movies. I love the show so much now I wish I had found it sooner.

 

I'm impressed with the animation, I'm so sick of everything being computer animated these days it's nice to see something hand-drawn again. The voice actors are also awesome, especially Tara Strong. I listening to a interview with her and she seems like a really kind woman who cares about the fans and seems the most approachable.

I believe I joined the herd around early Season 2.


I kept hearing the word brony, thought it was racist

This is the sad truth about today's society, everything is freaking racist - luckily it'll end, soon.

I suppose I had first become a brony (though I never called myself one) when I posted on a site called Ponychan back in 2011. One of the happiest years of my life, and I still love this show just as much as I did back then.

For me, it was about three years ago or so. Was searching a fav creature subject, Dragons, and found Spike. While trying to find out about him, I saw he was part of a TV show. Always loved TV. Who doesn't?! So I watched the episode about him and found I could relate to the lesson learned in the episode and figured would see the show from season one's start.

 

Have happily been a brony ever sense.

I'm on the Internet for majority of my days, so sometime late 2013 I noticed a number of MLP related posts going around everywhere. I knew what a Brony was, but only to what the Internet had assumed they were. Which isn't true, to my actual surprise! Whenever something becomes mass popular, my curiosity usually gets the best of me and I research.

 

I went on YouTube and searched 'My Little Pony: FiM' and found the Equestria Girls movie first. I didn't think I was going to think much of MLP, so I just watched that rather than Season one. About twenty minutes into the movie, despite how a handful of the fandom thinks EG was god awful- I enjoyed it. I was super absorbed into the bright colors, the music, then Fluttershy. Fluttershy sold me.

 

Since then, I watched every season to date, collected some plush dolls, watched the popular videos-- I became a Pegasister.

In wat ways i am still usure but after hearing about this n my love for borderlands made me investigate mlp. To which I immediately fell in love!!

1 day in the summer, my brothers had the show on the hub. They are much younger than me, so it was appropriate for them to watch it. I found myself watching the show. I didn't follow it closely at the time. When I got back to school, one of my friends told me about the show and how he got into it over the summer as well. I told him I found the show as well, and afterwards I really got into it. It was just before season 2 that I was a real brony, and have remained ever since.

Somewhere in December, I saw it while I was sick. When I heard about the community I thought I should try out show.

Well I was bored one day during my winter break back at the very beginning of 2012, I like the animation style so I gave it a go.  I watched the first couple of episodes and liked it but it wasn't until Winter Wrap Up that I realized I was a fan of the show.

I believe I became a brony sometime while the 2nd season was going or in-between two and three. I did see the advert on TV when it was first came out and took a strange liking to it because it didn't look anything like the old ones that I had seen glimpses of when I was young and they were girly and horrible. I don't really know why I didn't check it out sooner but I am glad I did eventually.

I remember first hearing about bronies back in late 2011 on youtube. I googled 'mlp' and read through several sites about who bronies were. At sometime in the next summer, I saw a video on youtube based on a meme that used Fluttershy's rage from the season one finale. I liked the animation style from the clip used, so I later decided to watch the first episode in November. While I was watching the first episode, I couldn't stop thinking "Why am I doing this?". But by the end of the first episode, I wanted to see more. By the first few episodes, I became a fan of the show.

 

Between the time from the season 3 premiere to the season 4 premiere, I watched an episode every few days.

Mine's a funny story.

I was in the Cafeteria during school, and I saw a picture of Pinkie Pie on the floor. Not a printed internet picture, an actual, hand drawn picture of Pinkie Pie, (For a while, she was best pony) as a joke to my friends, I said I was now a brony, and because of my curiosity, I went home and watched the 1st and 2nd episode. It felt a bit awkward at it was kind of embarresing to watch, even though nopony nobody was there, so I didn't watch it for a while. Eventually, I gave it a second chance and actually watched a few more of the episodes, and I started to enjoy it. Eventually, every night I binge watched the episodes on my iPod, and remained an in-the-closet brony for almost a year, and now I'm finally starting to talk to people about it.

Sorry for the wall of text, any questions?

I think it was around November 2011.

 

Someone had left the TV on in The Hub Channel and while I was walking around the house I heard the My Little Pony intro I've heard years ago, except this time the music got a lot faster and exciting.  I found that surprising, so I decided to watch.  I loved how each episode broke the mold of what a little girl's show is supposed to be and how it wasn't afraid to teach many truths and lessons that people tend to forget growing up, all of it while never actually doing any men vs women nonsense.

 

Although, I only just yesterday joined this forum and this is my first time with other Bronies.  So far so fun. ^^

I'm sure it was, like, October 23, 2011? I don't know. My brother said he was a brony (No longer is), and then I asked what a brony was. ''A guy who like My Little Pony'', he said. I said, ''What? That's stupid.'' He became a brony because of my cousins, and I was sitting on the couch, my brother and my counsins turned on My Little Pony, and I'm like, ''Come on, it's a girl's show. This is so stupid.'' But I was still lazy and wanted to stay on the couch, and when the show tuned on, I had nothing else to look at. And yea, I could have stared at the wall, but the TV had constant movements on it and it caught my eye. I was seeing the show play, and I told myself, ''Wow, I shouldn't have talked bad about this show.''. Also, for some reason by brother watched, I don't know, G3 MLP to make fun of it? Haha. The episode I'm sure was Read it and Weep. My bronyism has been intermettent. I've lot interest and regained it about three times, the newest time because of my friend, telling me to watch Rainbow Rocks, and I got consumed again. Now school reminds me of dead ponies..

1st, saw a trailer for "Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony" on vimeo. 2nd, bought & watched the movie. Watched some MLP on You Tube. 3rd, Bought the first season. Watched it. 4th, looked at some videos of music on You Tube - (esp. "Pony Swag" & "You're Gonna Go Far Kid." 5th, fell in love with Rainbow Dash. 7th started collecting pony stuff and bought the rest of the series on DVD.  I've even bought the two Equestria Girls movies on DVD.  But I will probably not watch them again.  They were OK, but the ponies are better.  (IMO)  Actually, if there are any Equestrai Girls fans out there, I would be happy ot give them to you.  If anypony wants 'em, PM me with an address where I can send them.  If you're concerned about giving out your address - and if you're under 18, you might should be in this day and age - you can give me the address of your closest PO and I'll send them general delivery.  You can pick 'em up there when they arrive.

When I was little I would turn the entire TV off if MLP came on

 

Then somewhere in the middle of summer, 2013 someone that lives in the downstairs of my house showed me Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing on Rainbows and I guess I didn't remember the art style

 

Late august, 2014 was when I saw a video by blameitonjorge. In that video he mentioned Party of One.

(Keep in mind, I latch onto things very quickly.)

So I Thought the voice acting wasn't so bad and that got me doing google searches.

 

Later I found the clip from Sonic Rainboom where Rainbow performs the sonic rainboom

 

Mid September 2014 was when I finally started watching the show and started listening to pony music and going on these forums.

I was watching rucka rucka Ali and I came across his brony song. I decided to research the fandom to see if the stereotypes in the song matched which they didn't. My friend later showed me pink fluffy unicorns which he blasted in my head. Then finally a new girl moved to my neighborhood. She looked like she didn't have too many friends so I started talking to her at school. I later found out she was a deviantartist and also posted cartoon art from anime. When I was looking at her art I came to some pony themed stuff and asked her about it and she told me it was a great show. I decided to try it out after realizing other men liked it and I fell in love quickly. I asked her if something was wrong with me but she said its fine and that I shouldn't be a ashamed. She became my first friend I could share my love with the show with. It was then where I realized the magic of true friendship and how a true friend never judges. I owe her my eternal gratitude... :)

 

Bellow is a drawing she sent me as a symbol of our friendship.

Ahhhhh, how and when eh? Well the story I have goes on for a fair amount of weeks before I bowed to Brony kind so to speak heheh.

It started with me watching a specific video from a Youtuber called 'NateTalksToYou' he did a *Ahem* Clop Reaction vid with many other Youtubers in the vid, I found the video pretty funny but also a bit messed up as you expect from a person who has never seen Clop before, in he video though I heard a vaguely familiar word "Brony" said a few times and Nate also mentioned it in one of his old Q&A's so I did some research on Bronies, after a bit of research I laughed...Laughed at the idea of Bronies, this then lead on to me becoming an 'Anti-Brony' anytime I saw a Brony video on Youtube, I commented, and time I saw a Brony online I judged them called them gay or a freak, but all this online bullying lead to my brain being filled with pony images and then a Brony who I sadly don't remember told me "You're judging a show from one video, this is quite a silly thing to do, how about you try watching one episode yeah?" my response was quite bad, but that talk was in my head for days and it lead to me watching S1 EP1 on Dailymotion and becoming the one thing I laughed at over the past weeks, I even have the day I watched S1 EP1, which is the date I became a Brony.

2nd June 2013 is that date, never regretted it
