I guess the sobering reality is that the lack of coverage right now is all the more evidence Hasbro needs that it's time for a reboot. But there'll probably be more general media attention around the time the final episode is actually aired, especially since Hasbro will likely start getting into cast/crew announcements for the movie around that time. Retrospectives are still kind of premature when we still have a season to go, and it very well may reshape final thoughts on the series significantly before it's done.

 

 

I certainly hope so. I'd hate to see something like this be swept under the rug and forgotten about. Especially considering just how big this thing was.

Bronycon's probably going to get a lot of press attention this year being an extremely visible "Last hurrah" for the fandom. Around that time I imagine everyone else will catch on that it's ending.

I'm sad to see the show end but I'm glad we basically have confirmation for G5 to continue pony!

You know, I've just teared up a little. These news are bittersweet, and I have envisioned Pinkie Pie directly addressing us, thanking us for walking this journey for so many years. Being a journey of growth not only for them, but for us as well. But she's happy to have ended theirs, but sad because see in many of us unable to move on. Offering us encouragement to take what we learned with FIM, and face life with confidence and bravery, and ending that this adventure may be the most precious so far, but not closing up with more to come :mlp_rarity:

I actually thought it would be cool if all the VAs recorded similar thank you messages as their characters.

What if we made a petition to keep G4 running?

No

Just let them end the series. It's not like it's being taken out back Old Yeller style

Like a petition would even change anything. :mlp_maud: It's one generation out of a franchise, and despite having the longest-running, most successful show at that, it needs to end eventually so that the franchise can move forward. The legacy this generation of the franchise has had is going to live forever anyways, so as long as it gets a proper conclusion and sets up G5 well, we shall move forward too.

Mistakenly referred to G4 as the longest-running generation initially.

No, let it die. I don't want it to become Spongebob.

To make it a perfect 10 seasons would be nice, though we already got the official word from Hasbro themselves that they won't do that.

Either way, I'm cautiously optimistic about what G5 will bring to the table.

Much of the crew has already moved on to other projects. Hard as it is, just have to trust they know what they're doing.

What upsets me the most about this isn't the fact it's ending (I myself haven't kept up with this show since season 5). It's the lack of response. This was a huge thing on the internet in the not so distant past. It's peak popularity was in 2013. That was only 6 years ago now. Yet only the people who stuck around have shown up to mourn. This was a uniting force for people around the web to express themselves, to create, to question. Sure it wasn't the answer to any problems in the world but it was so comforting for so many people. All the people who were into during it's peak are still alive and still online. Yet none of them have shown up to at the very least acknowledge it. Now maybe it's because of a lack of reporting from news news outlets. I contacted saberspark in the hopes that he will make a video about it. I plan to make one for release around the time of the end of S9. But my point still stands that... where are all the millions of people who were into this to at least acknowledge that they were into it. It kinda feels sad knowing how little of an impact something that big had on public perceptions when it feels like most of the people who were into it are too ashamed to come out of the woodwork and say they loved it.

Because not all are part of MLPF. Most ppl prob won't bother to register at a random internet forums each time a series goes offline they like or love.

Also, you might simply miss those ppl because they are posting elsewhere.

Not to mention, we got quite a warning in the leaks already, so it doesn't come much as a surprise.

Heavily doubt a petition would change Hasbro's mind. Unless you have a few extra million to fund the show for another season.

200+ episodes is enough. You got plenty to rewatch there.

G1 was the longest running, clocking in at 13 years

Sorry, I was thinking of the original MLP shows when I made that original post, which were very short-lived. Updated it for accuracy, thanks. :)

Also books, and comics. Tons of official shit for poneh  :mlp_icwudt:. I mean, it got milestones ahead of content compared to other shows of the time. :-D

It is true G1 was the longest running generation, but I don’t think it’s show with Megan lasted as freaking long. It’s follow up, MLP Tales (Which has many FIM voices BTW), certainly didn’t last as long I’m sure  :dash:

Will have to wait and see. I am guessing that, if G5 flops, they will find a reason to resurrect FiM...

yeah, that's true :twi:

Seldom does such a thing work.

Remember Hasbro has already spent money on G5 planning, concept art, and have already invested. There's a lot of investment already. 10,000 people who likely were not going to pay MONEY for products are not going to change their mind and make them ditch plans they already spent cash on.

 

Petitions seldom work, they just make fandoms look desperate.

Hasbro has tons of market reason, millions dumped into such a thing, I think they know what will sell more than we do.

Have to see what happens. I doubt a petition would help, because the only vote Hasbro care about is with your wallet.

If G5 is good enough, then it may get better sales than G4 (which has probably reached market saturation now; the increase in stock around the movie launch in supermarkets seems to have vanished again, and I see a better range of merch in discount stores than in mainline ones; toys 'r' us going under probably hurt too, as they had a larger range than almost anyone.

Well, I just have one thing to say:

Spoiler

 

I'm sure I am in the minority here, but I am quite happy about this, not because I dislike the show, but the exact opposite, in fact.  I love it, and everything good has to come to an end, and the fact is that no matter how good a franchise is, it has a lifespan.  From my experience, nine seasons is about the expected lifespan of any great show.  It is extremely rare for anything to go longer than that and continue being good.  I've long wanted Pony to end gracefully, when the time is right, such that I can buy and own the whole series, and treasure it always in its full and complete glory.  I don't want what happened to The Simpsons to happen to my beloved Pony.  I don't want to watch as my precious ponies plummet into the abyss until one day, when I tell someone that I'm a FIM fan, I have to insert the caveat: "Oh, not modern PonyClassic Pony.  Big difference."  I've always wanted a satisfying ending before it all goes downhill, and like it or lump it, everything goes downhill if it goes on long enough.  Every show, movie series, and game series has two choices: end with dignity and integrity while it's still good and leave the audience wanting more, or continue long after its quality has expired, possibly changing hands until some greedy corporation *cough cough Disney cough* gets their grubby mitts on it, then descend into the depth of crap until the brand is worthless.  Personally, I'd much rather have the bittersweet former ending than the latter, which is just bitter.

I'm very much looking forward to this final season.  I have many wishlist items, most of which will never happen.  The only one I will be really disappointed if they leave out is for the Mane 7 and the Sisters to learn of the Tree's true nature and talk with it.  That needs to happen.

Soon it will be over. I won't know what to do.

Rewatch the series periodically.  Watch youtube Pony videos.  Read fanfics.  Collect fan art.  Collect merch.  Chat on here.  Listen to the music.  Remember, we're not locking the door and throwing away the key.  It's not a rollercoaster: you don't have to disembark when the ride ends.  Pony can still be a part of your life.  I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm not going anywhere.  I'm still going to haunt the forums regularly.  Where else could I go to make my blog posts?  I'd be lost without this place.  I'm not going to just f*ck off and never speak of Pony again just because there's no new episodes.  Don't you still enjoy franchises that already saw their end?  The fandom isn't going anywhere.  And if G5 is good, maybe we'll all pile on that train.  Don't despair.
