I saw the Princess Flurry or whatever spoiler. She looks adorable.
But if S6 is coming up soon, I gotta catch up on S5. I kinda didn't keep up heh heh

Hated that episode.

The Yak episode I actually really liked. It was super silly like a Pinkie episode should be
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: System423 on 2016-01-29 22:30:08
I felt the ending was too rushed. Although when I go in and watch Pony, I don't really hold it up to very high standards. As long as it's fun. Sure there are some episodes I like way more than others
Blu Flu

but I never really actually hated an episode.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-01-29 22:30:29
I actually really liked it.
The gags where good, and the message was a very good one. It's not one you hear actually, and it's something people need to learn. For that I give it points.

Oh my god....the fanfics keep dash more in character than that episode did in the ending.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: yasl on 2016-01-29 22:36:40
I also reckon the Yak episode was a weak one.

Regardless, the next several are a run of strong episodes, so get on with it LR!

(MMDW was indeed bad, but could have been somewhat salvaged by having Dash call out the others on their hypocrisy at the end.  I feel Spike At You Service would be a strong contender for my least favorite ep, though it's been a while since I saw it.)

Oh come on! Are people still on about that fucking episode? It was a great episode. And many critics have backed it up.
I feel the reason most people hate it is because they just can't stand their "poor waifu, glass canon, Dashie" to be in the wrong and be treated like the narcissistic jerkass she is.

Seriously? The Mane6 were not really being hypocritical. They were trying to help her.

And to be honest, Dash was pretty in character at the end. She's not some freaking sensitive little child. She realized she was in the wrong when her friends explained to her.

I am not a fan of Dash. I took some pleasure in watching her finally not get her way and finally getting through her thick head that she's not the shit.

Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-01-29 22:54:51
I suppose.
One episode I'm severely iffy on is Putting Your Hoof Down.
On one hand it's a pretty good episode. On the other, the utter verbal smack down Fluttershy gives her friends... it's utterly heart breaking.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Blurr001 on 2016-01-29 23:04:49
I liked seeing Fluttershy be more assertive and tell off other ponies....hehe I laughed.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-01-29 23:08:05
It was pretty sadistic what she was saying.
Yes her standing up for herself was good to see, and I know the whole point was to show her going to far, but what she said to her friends... that was beyond going too far.
She insulted their very livelihoods and talents. Calling them frivolous and pointless, and that no one else really cared about such stupid things.
That... dude that was fucking cold.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-01-29 23:08:33
Like... Ice cold. Like, that's not even "assertive"-Fluttershy cold.

I guess I'm just not fond of "the shoe is on the other foot" as an Aesop delivery vessel.

When you fight dickery with dickery, usually you just end up with a lot of dicks.

(oh, and I agree about Putting Your Hoof Down. She just went just a bit too far, such that it felt like a flat-out character break rather than anything else.)

Fluttershy turned into a douche when she had Iron Will "helping" her XD Honestly I don't have an episode I hated exactly, but I do think I liked some less than others. Some seemed a little too slow paced for my taste. Others were...really odd.

Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: mysteryserpent on 2016-01-30 15:47:21
I had to look up which number the Yak episode was. There's been so many episodes of the show I don't remember which number goes with which episode. I honestly haven't seen all the episodes either...I pick and choose which episodes I want to see out of each season....

*hides in a corner* I'm a baaaaaaaad fan of the show....XD
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Paws on 2016-01-30 15:52:40
I vaguely remember seeing Putting Your Hoof Down once or twice -- once on TV, I think. My grandparents get the channel and I think they were doing a spring or summer marathon once; it happened to be on. Same happened with Three's A Crowd, actually, which... I think I was home alone at their house when it was on. Otherwise it would have made me very uncomfortable to be watching it with others.

I've only seen one Season 3 episode, one Season 4 episode, and the very end of Season 5's Crusaders of the Lost Mark. Part of the reason I'm doing this re-watch is to familiarize myself with some of the characters that the rest of the fandom seems to have attached themselves to that I haven't met yet, as well as remember what about the series I liked in the first place.

It's a good show, it really is. I'm glad it's all on Netflix.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: mysteryserpent on 2016-01-30 15:58:18
In my opinion this show is eerily similar in my own viewpoint to Steven Universe. The shows are TOTALLY different, but how I viewed them initially was scarily similar. I was highly skeptical of both, the very first episode I watched was not the first episode of either show and it made me back away from even trying to watch either of the shows, and when I came back to both and started at the beginning I started appreciating the shows a lot more and I ended up enjoying both shows a lot =) Most of today's cartoons are not enjoyable to me, but these two are pleasant surprises and I'm happy I started watching both. Matter of fact, both of the shows I started watching because of fanart and sneezy fanart from you guys *blushes*

Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-01-31 18:24:04
I liked it.
Except the Lyra and Bon Bon part.
It wasn't funny. It was honestly pretty stupid. The only way I see it being funny is if Bon Bon is some raving schizophrenic lunatic that has delusions of herself being part of a secret organization with the government. Kinda like a certain famous economist whose story was portrayed in the movie, A Beautiful Mind: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Beautiful_Mind_(film)
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: System423 on 2016-01-31 19:24:37
I saw most of A Beautiful Mind. Real interesting.

I felt that the Bon Bon and Lyra part was out of nowhere. Was kinda silly but eh, if it gets the kids' attention, then I guess they did their job.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Grapefoot on 2016-02-02 15:46:05
I wasn't a fan of the Bon Bon/Lyra part either.  I only liked seeing them talking, but the subject matter was rather dumb. 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-02-02 16:47:08
Yeah, the whole "Bon Bon is a spy" thing was just garbage. It felt like just an attempt at "lol so randum!". It was just blugh. I only liked it at the end when Lyra "get's back at Bon Bon" by saying she ate her expensive imported oats.

It's been THE ship ever since the early days of the fandom
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-02-02 17:25:38
It's stupid.
The shippers never give Lyra ANY personality besides "OH MY GOD HANDS!" cuz sitting in a weird way automatically means obsessed with fucking hands and humans. Perfect sense.

And Bon Bon is always characterized as a total bitch.

Every fic I've seen, every art I've seen it's just Lyra being a dumb twat, Bon Bon being annoyed, but then hurr durr that doesn't matter CUZ DEY LUV EACH OTHER!! And then they fuck -_- seriously. No romantic chemistry at all besides them being opposites, and hurp dee durr durr, opposites attract.

It's stupid. Overdone. and just blugh.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Rainberry on 2016-02-02 17:27:39
That SHIP has sailed.  I'm more for Bon Bon and Lyra being friends. 

I have to agree with LP (Loss prevention?) here.  The fandom has done a horribly job with Lyra's character. The only people who do Lyra good are from OUR community! 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: System423 on 2016-02-02 17:29:20
I see dat dis is sum srs bidnes right here.

(Good points, tho. Yeah, I never really liked how the fandom finds ONE thing about a character and automatically make it their go-to thing. Derpy says "Muffins" for a split second and is barely audible? BOOM THAT'S HER THING)
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-02-02 17:34:17
I like them being friends as well. And yeah, Ponysneeze and AJMStudios have done a nice job with her character, AJ even keeping her obsession with hands and not making it her only go to joke.

Dis is super cereal bidness!
Derpy wasn't even the one that said "Muffins". It was some other random bg pony.

Definitely.  I really like what Scootaquest did, they kept it funny, but she has more personality.  I also love Berry Punch in that series.

Also got to give Grapefoot credit with him and Lyra. 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-02-03 11:55:09
I also like how everyone finds Lyra slightly annoying, not just Bon Bon for the sake of being/looking a bitch. I also love how the comic plays with the fandoms tendency to make Berry a drunk by having everyone assume she's a raging alcoholic XD

Oh yeah, Lyra is a spazz in his writings XP
Ponysneeze made her pretty interesting too.
Those stories were one of the last I read because I had such a prejudice against Lyra. I'm glad I gave it a chance.

Post by: Blurr001 on 2016-02-03 14:11:10
I'm sorry but I think they let her off WAY too easy and I think she would have been better as a recurring villain
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-02-03 15:23:14
That doesn't really warrant hating her character.
That more so warrants anger at the writers. And how would she even work as a reoccurring villain? It would basically be the same plot again and again and that's just boring.

And please, it's a given for MLP to forgive villains to easily. Sunset Shimmer was forgiven easily but I don't see people hating on her.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

If that's the case, then you can bet there'll be "drama" as usual. Seriously, this fandom often can't take a little change or something.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-02-12 13:42:44
Eh whatever.
There are still people who complain that "my little pony" sounds too girly.
They'll probably be okay with a new name change. Except the die hard "LAUREN FAUST'S EPISODES WERE TAH BEST" losers.

Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-02-12 13:50:54
Yes. They do.
They're the type of die hards that started that stupid petition to get the Library Tree back.

To be honest... The show got better when Lauren Faust left. Don't get me wrong, she has great ideas and good character archetypes, but she sucks ass at subtly.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

Seeing the tree get wrecked in favor of the soulless castle stung a bit.  The tree had a lot of character.  The Crystal Castle thing looks so bleh.
I warmed up to it after the episode with the tree roots being turned into the light fixture though.

And call me weird if you want... but I noticed no difference when she left. :-[

(...okay, maybe a little.)
People can't take change. It's part of life. It hurt for Twilight too, but she learned to cope. That's what we need to learn as well.

I think its less not taking change and more symbolic of the direction the show has been going at the time.  S5 put things back on a better track but S4 was really turning into the Princess Twilight show.

Wow, wow, calm down everyone. Read what APD said, "My Little Pony: Explore Equestria."

It is not called, "Explore Equestria" only. 

Not sure if "Friendship is Magic" is gone and replaced with "Explore Equestria," but I guess we will know more.  It may even just be the theme for this season, as last season the theme was "Destiny" or some jazz.

There is a lot of talk about, EXPLORE EQUESTRIA, but it is confusing as what is defined as Equestria.  Is Equestria the nation that the ponies live in only?  If so, that would mean we just explore Eqeusrtia and see Manehatten, Baltimare, Seaddle, Vanhoover, etc. 

Equestria would not encompass other kingdoms and entities like the Griffon Kingdom, Saddle Arabia, Yak-YUKistan.... Hate that place.

Well Equestria is like their country I think. I mean, think about it. The Griffon Kingdom isn't part of Equestria. And there is "the edge of Equestria", which is an actual place, not an expression.

Okay, so Equestria is the nation then.  I guess they even have an anthem for Equestria too, as we've seen in the newer episodes where many characters have EQUESTRIA pride.  There is also the Equestrian people, which is just telling us they are from Equestria.

If I was going to go to war with a nation.... Yakyakistan would be the one for now.  Too bad the writers made that nation oddly close to Equestria... they should have been very far away.

Is there a new official map that shows the location of all these places?

Well as far as we've seen, all the yaks have is brute strength. As far as we've seen. I'm making this opinion based on that. The yaks have strength. The ponies have a wide variety of powerful magic that could easily counter them.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: RainyFunshine on 2016-02-15 12:23:00
Yaks brute strength might overpower the cunningness of pones.  I could see Yaks causing considerable damage to towns, cities, and the Equestrian economy.  Even if the pones won the war, they might not recover the loses.

So the Crystal Empire is a thin strip of land... and Yakyakistan is stupidly close to Equestria in a dumb location.  They should totally be somewhere else. 

I find it odd they added, "undiscovered west" and made a portion of it head off the known map.  They must have plans.    The unknown west is very close to big cities too, which is funny.

You kidding me? If the Yaks went to war they wouldn't lose badly. Have you seen the size of them?? They're fucking huge!

Also, the Yaks were pretty civilized when Pinkie tried a different method. They had high standards for their likes. And the ponies couldn't make something as good as their home, hence their anger. That's the whole point of the lesson. The Yaks were annoying yes, but it's kinda like understandable. If the ponies were trying to make them feel like they were back in Yak-yakistan they were failing pretty bad. But once they stopped, they stopped being jerks. It could also just be their way of resolving conflict, which kinda makes sense. They're freaking Yaks.

Same.  I will have to agree with you.  Originally it seemed the creators just made Equestria, the whole world.  It has quickly dwindled down to just their country, especially in season 5.

Raising the sun and moon thing, that all just myth and lore.  Luna and Celestia do nothing and trick all the pones into praising and believing them. ;)  Have you ever actually seen them lift or raise anything?  Exactly, you haven't.

This might blow the minds of people.  Equestria is a kingdom, yes, but it is also possibly the name of a REGION of the world.  Because within Equestria, there are other kingdoms.  They sort of look up to then sad rule in Canterlot... like olden times.

I have heard of that.  It would be cool if that was a series, a darker MLP series with more lore... but not screaming, "I am trying to be hip and cool" like so many corporate cartoons of the 80s.

I agree. 

I liked the first Goofy Movie, but the Sports Games one was pretty dumb, to me. 

Plus it didn't have Roxanne in it!  She was the best!

It would be nice if MLP got more airtime on a network that actually gets viewers... though I feel they should have done that a few years ago.

Sort of doesn't fit with CN's currently lineup.

It seems like they actually had a pretty decent lineup to try and compete somewhat.  But if they really want to compete, they can't be such an exclusive channel no one gets.

Post by: Soda on 2016-02-20 01:57:34
I feel MLP deserved a better network.  Though because it was on a "no-name" network with no real competition, it dominated.  On another network, it might not have dominated.  We might not have gotten as many seasons and a soon to come movie. 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

Post by: Soda on 2016-02-20 02:00:50
Probably.  Yes.  :)  I just think it could have grown to be bigger on another network, though at the same time, a smaller network probably made it thrive longer.

I'm not sure how the other CN shows are doing with fandoms.  I don't think Clarence has one, Regular Show is disappearing fast, but the show is hanging on the tv, Adventure Time is closer to the end then the beginning.

That shows following died right away.  It gained some traction by a few who just supported the channel because they liked MLP.  MLP is still going very strong, even though we are talking about it like it has passed it's prime.

According to the Brony Census, it hasn't passed it's prime.

Original theory was Chrysalis was the Princess from the 'love potion/poison' story. 
Comics have addressed their origin, but Chrysalis is the source of the story so who knows if it's actually true. 
I prefer it stay vague, tbh. 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

Huh. I always thought that prince and Princess from the book were the previous rulers of the Crystal Empire. But whatevs lol.

For some reason the images won't expand :( I tried refreshing too. Maybe when there's two it doesn't work?
I'll try gain.

Oh so I just watched "The Mane Attraction". It was a really nice episode.

It can either be a real 10/10 movie, or it could be crap. Like... not even joking.

I feel that when it comes to stuff like this, it could either be MUAH or bleh.
I'm hoping I'm proven wrong though and that it's either "yeah OK" or muah.

Personally I hope there's not a bunch of fan pandering.

But with great potential could come great let down.
I'm sure since it'll be pony centered more bronies would actually be willing to go to the theater to watch it.
It could be good. Who knows.
And as for fan pandering, it all depends if it's done well and not blatantly "HEY, THIS IS A REFERENCE!? GET IT!!??"

All of this in a nutshell. I hate when they do that crap. Like, some are nice and subtle, and hell, some of the non subtle ones are perdy damn good (I liked the reference to the Shining they did in the Smooze episode). But when it's in your face, it's just nah/10.

Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-03-03 16:53:46
Oh yeah, that was great! Those are really just references, not fan pandering.
They usually do references pretty well. One that was annoying was the one where Pinkie says "I never got that ponies name" at the end of the Cheese Sandwich episode. It made no sense. Sure it's a reference, but it's a bad one.

I'm worried the movie will be absolute trash.  I really hope not. Even if the story is bad, I bet the animated ponies will be wonderful.  Think of it, there hasn't been a hand drawn animated cartoon in ages.  Will they make it very beautiful FLASH?  Has there ever been a Flash animated movie before?

Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-03-04 11:04:02
I'm pretty sure there has been. And just look at how stellar they make the show on the non movie budget they have. Imagine what the can do in a magical land of Equestra with a movie budget to animate. It could be truly epic.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

Strangely the images don't expand for me either.  But thats okay, just using up site memory and bandwidth.  I never knew that backstory with Chrysalis.

I bet the movie will have some "Save the world" kind of plot.  Maybe Chrysalis takes over with a army similar to the Nazi's?  Taking control.... oh who am I kidding.  It will be a save the world with friendship and some other cutesy female character being evil.

I am a bit worried season 7 hasn't been announced.  I know we haven't seen the names of the last season 6 episodes, and one might be... or two might be, season ending... or series ending titles.  We don't know yet. 

I think MLP can go on for another season, as there is plenty more they can still do. 

But usually by now, it would see we would have heard MLP being renewed, or the writers writing or voice actors doing sound bits.

Hasbro might think they've done enough.  They've done a ton of episodes, have branched off with EQUESTRIAN GIRLS, and have a 2017 film in the works.  I feel they feel they have pleased fans, and made lots of money.

The only info we have regarding season 7 is this...

" Leah Jade in early March 2016 after meeting with DHX tweeted that "season 7 of MLP is in production" and in mid-April 2016 stated that she would remove said tweet if not OK to post. Later in mid-April 2016, Jim Miller was asked regarding the matter and replied, "We're still working on 6!", and Jade removed her relevant tweet. On April 29, 2016, Miller was asked, "Do you know if there will be a season 7 of mlp?", and replied, "That's Hasbro's decision to make." - Source (https://twitter.com/TheBiggestJim/status/726141934654251008)

Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-08-22 17:34:27
I honestly think considering the writing this season, it's their last. It's obvious they've run out of ideas and have resorted to making character OOC just to make a story. I always felt their 2017 pony movie was going to be the grand finale to the show. I prefer the show to go out that way. Rather then another season full of just crap episodes with horrible writing. Kill it while it still has some dignity.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Silverwing on 2016-08-22 18:57:33
It is a shame, there is so much that can be done with this show, so many arcs, but the writers or the network just don't want to go there... I say end it with the movie, maybe a smaller season 7.  ONLY IF good writing can't be done. 

Then bring the show back with a new name following different characters.  My Little Pony: CMC adventures or something, I don't know, they can come up with something.  Same art style, same characters and world, but focus on someone new.  New group, new characters that can run into current characters too. 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Kyrl on 2016-08-22 19:38:36
Realistically, the main arcs of the story are completed.
Twilight understands friendship now and ascended to a archmage Alicorn Princess™.
Rainbow Dash is a Wonderbolt.
Rarity has her fashion boutiques in Manehattan and Canterlot.
The other three, well, they never had extremely ambitious goals to begin with.  AJ will live and die on that farm, Fluttershy tamed Discord, and Pinkie Pie exists.
The CMC have their cutie marks.

While I like the return of the slice of life episodes, you can only do so much with that with a show like this.  I'd be perfectly happy if the movie is the endpiece of a pretty fulfilling 7+ year run of a show that for all intents and purposes wasn't planned beyond 2 seasons.

Post by: Kyrl on 2016-08-22 20:30:38
Ponies ending won't be THE end.  It's merely the end of what we know as G4.  Now, if Hasbro goes full retard and creates something outside the universe that G4 has built since 2010, then we'll see a big community fracture and dissolving. 
But I like to think the friends I made will remain friends without pony.  heck, half the people I talk to barely watch the show as it is.

I hope they end it in such a way it makes a theater full of grown men cry.  There has been a lot of proposed endings, from Twilight closing the book from the very first episode around the obvious children of the other 5, to Celestia dying and passing the matrix of leadership to Twilight.

That first ending... That would be... My heart would break a little I think. That would be so touching. Though the designers would have to be careful not to imply any sort of certain ship happening otherwise people will rage. I know this one DA user designs children of the Mane6 to not imply any sort of ship. She makes them look like the mothers without looking like copies.

What if we ranked all the episode on our personal scale, then someone combined it all up, averaged it, and we could see what the average score and top episodes are for PSF members?  I am willing to math it all.

That make sense?  1-10 scale.  10 is best.  I am willing to make fancy graphs too so you can look at all the pretty numbers in a fun way.

"The Crystalling" (Part 1)   
"The Crystalling" (Part 2)   
"The Gift of the Maud Pie"   
"On Your Marks"   
"Gauntlet of Fire"

"Newbie Dash"
"A Hearth's Warming Tail"

"Applejack's "Day" Off"

Watching Richard Sirois work on his latest project is stunning.  I love his animation work.  I am so excited for this latest project of his, and he is turning one of the greatest Brony fandom songs into a reality from his own take.  He got the original singer back, and has a new version of the song with extended bits to it, a whole new verse.  So don't watch the bottom if you don't want to be spoiled for when this is complete.


His animation style made me think... what animation style will the MLP movie have in theaters?  It's gonna ave to be way better then just flash.  And also, when it does come out, it will be one of the only films since 2008 to not be CGI.  Yes Flash is CGI, but it is still traditional more then a Pixar CGI film...  So will the new MLP film maybe be hand drawn?  Or will it be FLASH with all the measures in place to make it look absolutely fantastic with entire 3D models for smooth movement and crazy effects?

This is pretty cool news... it actually makes me think this may be a hand drawn animation, and not just Flash.  Though that would be a totally different style then the show... I don't know how or what they will do.  If it's hand drawn, it might not seem like MLP:FiM.

So here is the good news, a pretty major animator jumped on board early last month to work on the MLP:FiM feature film, movie. Michel Gagné has been involved in some of the biggest kids projects out there, from The Land Before Time to American Tale and All Dogs Go to Heaven.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-09-12 05:15:07
I hope it's hand drawn. Honestly flash has its limits and no matter how good the show can look, it still looks like flash. Hand drawn opens a lot of possibilities. I think it'll be great.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Silverwing on 2016-09-12 11:41:53
I don't know what I want.  I know I don't want CGI 3D models.  I would much prefer hand drawn beauty, but it will have to emulate the brightness and style of our Flash rigged pones. 

You can't really make a feature film in Flash.  It seems cheap.  People won't pay for that.

As for this movie, I can't wait to learn more about it.  No one knows what type of animation style they will employ, and I don't think it's really been brought up at all. You can't make a feature length film and have it be taken seriously with FLASH.

So once this series is done, probably at the end of this season... do you think they will make a new EQUESTRIAN GIRLS cartoon series?

I don't think so either.  I think they will make more television movies.

That seems like a plausible step for Hasbro to do to keep making cheap money.  They already have these characters established. 

I won't watch it but...
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

Besides, hasn't that show idea been thrown around since the movie came out. If they haven't done it yet they won't do it.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: RainyFunshine on 2016-09-22 21:22:35
I'm not too sure.  I think once they quit pones, they will want to keep that revenue coming in, and what better then some more Equestria Girls....

I hope not though.  I don't want MLP to end after this season.  They could do so much... but they are not.  They've built so much cool stuff and they are squandering a lot of great stories. 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-09-22 21:34:43
Eh not really. Who watches Equestria Girls and actually enjoys it but a few handful of Bronies. The content isn't like relatable enough for young girls, and the age the girls are in those is the age girls in real life try to step away from shows like that because it's "for kids". They'll try, but it'll probably crash, or at least not do nearly as well as MLP.

Eh, MLP has potential but they're wasting it. Put it to sleep. I hate seeing it constantly just turn to making fun of American culture in favor of say building the world around them and giving us more about the history and lore. But then again, it's a kids show. It's not really meant to do that stuff. It's just supposed to entertain.

Post by: RainyFunshine on 2016-09-22 21:48:20
How cool would it have been if they could have made a more "Adult" version of the show.  It would lose some of the innocence that made it great, but then they could develop it to their hearts content.

Good grief, yes, this!

Drawing on American cultural tropes for episode plots was inevitable and not a problem, and even the US city name puns for remote locations was cute at first.  Then they produced a map of Equestria that was basically a map of North America, which was an awful display of imaginative bankruptcy, but tolerable in isolation.  But it hasn't stopped.  Increasingly the show is less and less fantastic and more and more mundane (in the literal senses of both words).

I was especially appalled at the handling of the dragon and griffin lands.  They felt absurdly sparse.  Have you ever played a video game (Bethesda games come to mind) where some settlement or city is built up over the first few hours as huge and major and super impressive, but then you finally reach New Vegas and it's, like, a handful of buildings and a few dozen inhabitants and you're like "this isn't a friggen city, this backwater settlement is barely a hamlet!"  Such was my view of Griffonstone.  And apparently when the Dragon Lord summons all dragons to attend a conclave, only a few dozen bother showing up for that, too.

This isn't a question of copy-and-pasting more background silhouettes, but of taking a stylistic and narrative approach that implies scale and depth, even if it's not relevant to the immediate plot.

I watched RDP: The Star in Yellow a few months ago, and was surprised at how it manage to briefly rekindle a sense of fantasy and lore and gravitas.  The sense that we were peeking in to a deep fantasy world.  I've not really felt that frequently in the show since the early seasons, and feel it very rarely now, if ever.

Amen.  I want to know more about their cultures, settlements.  All I saw in the Dragonlands was nothing but rock and lava.  Do they all just... live outside and are dirt poor?  Yakyakistan seemed to have some design traits in their buildings, but also, dirty poor.  Griffonstone, dirt poor.  Is no one else advanced in anyway?  Do they all just live in these slums?

There won't be any hiding it.  Spoilers will happen.  The rest of season 6 of MLP:FiM will release in the UK the next handful of days, and the US releases will still be drawn out over the month.  I am going to post topics for the remaining episodes, since it is all gonna happen this week in the UK and many of us will see them anyways, probably killing US tv ratings.

Still no official word of a season 7.

Looking at all the final episodes of season 6, the titles, and the synopsis.... I think this is the end of Friendship Is Magic.  Everyone has accomplished their goals.

But... will Starlight take the reigns of the next series/season?  Maybe MLP:some other name???

I hate to be the barer of bad news but;

"Apologies for the delay on this! Don’t have an answer on the UK scheduling…however Hasbro can confirm that My Little Pony Friendship is Magic is not switching to Netflix for Season 7. " - Hasbro PR

"Ever since Legend of Everfree was planned as a Netflix debut, rumors have been floating around from just about every corner of the ponynet that season 7 would be following suit. With Discovery Family ratings dipping as more people switch to online, and the tremendous success of Friendship is Magic on the web, it wasn't too far fetched.

Today, we put those rumors, and in some cases fears, to rest. After a direct query to Hasbro PR, we can officially confirm that Netflix will not be premiering Season 7. While we don't know if Discovery Family will still be the destination for it, this at least lets us know that we won't have to wait an extended period for a massive clump of episodes at once.

This is also technically our official season 7 confirmation in general, though I don't think many doubted that it was on the way. If you did, you can stop worrying. We are getting more pony. As for what the theme will be and if or how it will tie into the movie, we will find out soon." More (http://www.equestriadaily.com/2016/10/official-confirmation-mlp-season-7-not.html)

Bad news? I'll say. Season 7? I'm afraid that Hasbro is really starting to milk the show too much now :/ this season has been kind of very meh. Like, S1 level meh. With the occasional gem here and there. Especially with all the Mane6 achieving their goals, what else is there to go on about? Sure Starlight could do things, but... She hasn't been utilized hardly enough in this season. Which is a shame because she easily could have and it would have been a good transition for the show. But instead they continue to milk the Mane6 for subpar stories and sometimes completely breaking their characters just to make conflict, and just ripping on American culture. I feel it would have been fine to just put the show down right after this season. But nope. I guess Hasbro isn't done milking this cow yet.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: MasterXtreme on 2016-10-04 22:24:09
I'm not gonna pre-judge.  We will see what they have in store for season 7.  I think it's going to be a major change, as in almost like a new show... new main characters.  That is my guess.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-10-04 22:26:13
I doubt it. Hasbro doesn't have the balls.
I'm sad to say ponies for me have been losing their edge for me. I feel perhaps maybe it's why I'm less inspired to write things in general for them. But it could also just be me being a lazy ass.

Post by: MasterXtreme on 2016-10-04 22:27:51
It isn't the same spark for many people, but I'm not going to downplay it before it begins.  That kind of already negative attitude towards something is what causes decline.  I still do believe something major will shift with season 7.  As a matter of fact, I expect it.

Post by: Wolfwood on 2016-10-04 22:32:11
Sweet!  One more season to get some development, but not nearly as much as we hope.  It will be like Naruto with 998 episodes of filler and in there 3 episodes of character progression. 

But seriously, I am excited to hear that news.  I am really happy actually.  A good boost to my day. 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

Just like SOME of us have been saying.  MLP will now be spun off with another series, "Equestria Girls."  Season 7 is to al be completely different of MLP:FiM.

Words cannot express my confusion.  So the UK did not air the two episodes leading up to the season finale, but they just premiered part one of the season finale last night... 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-10-06 12:58:33
That's very odd. They must've mixed something up over there.

Blasted UK messing it up.  Totally gonna screw as people are gonna see the finale and not these two episodes leading up to it first... hopefully no continuity then....

I will abide by the US scheduling, as they are actually following the script it seems.

More confirmation today about MLP Season 7.  Very late in the game.

I'm going to predict season 7 is a smaller season with the film coming out.  Maybe 13 episodes?  Hopefully not.

Post by: Rainberry on 2016-10-24 22:09:12
That was my biggest complaint.  I also don't know why no one attempted to stop Chrysalis, but she is a good plot device now.  Hope they can use her again.  Maybe the film?

I didn't like how easy it was for the Changeling Empire to crumble like that.  You don't change so easily from a life time of being brain washed and ideology like Chrysalis was teaching them.  Why would they all change their minds so easily from listening to the enemy (starlight) talk? 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: MasterXtreme on 2016-10-24 22:10:15
But it is just a cartoon.  We can leave the fandom to make more compelling stories that are more in depth.

I can't stand the reformed Changeling design.  It looks horrible.  And I agree though, Raine.  I know they had to end it all, but it was just too simple there at the end.  But it was a great episode overall. 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

I didn't like the Changeling thing at the end either, but I understand their time constraints and their primary target viewer.... even if that isn't the majority who is watching.  They still have to write like it is. 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Rainberry on 2016-10-24 22:13:27
The Changelings new look is really bad.  They look alien, not insect like.  Though I look forward to seeing how someone who has no leadership qualities handles the weight of being a leader. ;)  Good luck Thorax. 

I also wonder how relations will go overall now that they are a kingdom. 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: MasterXtreme on 2016-10-24 22:17:28
That will be a fascinating aspect now that the Changeling Kingdom isn't evil for once, or at least war mongering.

They were sort of like a Mongol Empire, taking places over, not really for land, but resources.

He worked hard to make a great product and the thought of having a new version with a special verse was pretty cool.  Just because one is sung better by someone else, doesn't make the whole project a failure.  It was a beautiful showcase.

I don't think there is one Blurr.

All we know is that there is a season 7, but no release date.

Okay, we do not have a release date yet.

But we do know the movie is coming out October 2017.  That's all.

Post by: RainyFunshine on 2017-01-08 13:20:56
Little Pony: The Movie, will premiere worldwide on October 6, 2017.

But no word on when Season 7 will premier on television.  There will also be 3 Equestria Girls episodes that are 22 minutes long. 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: AnyPoneDrawn on 2017-01-08 13:21:32
We also don't know how many episodes will be in this season.

I sure hope this movie is actually for theaters and not some lame movie for tv.

I can't wait to see what they do.  They can't possibly stick with flash in a feature film, can they?

Please no.  I want some fancy shading and beautiful fluid ponies running around and stuff.


Some crazy spin cycles that show beautiful fluid animation from all angles!
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-01-08 23:45:48
Well, the flash in the show is fluid. And we've had spin cycles in it. And we've had moments of nice shading in the show also, so... With a budget increase, they could theoretically still do it in Flash well.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: AnyPoneDrawn on 2017-01-08 23:47:08
Better be the best dang FLASH ever then.  And this spins need to have even more glorious cycles and frames.  1,000 frames for a single spin!

But in all seriousness.  If this animation isn't great, it's not going to do good in theaters.  IF people can see it doesn't look much better then the tv show, why should they pay their hard earned dollars to go see this?

APD please.
You're talking about the brony community. One of the most dumb and fanatical fandoms.
They're going to go see it regardless. Because it's freaking MLP in theaters as ponies.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: AnyPoneDrawn on 2017-01-09 00:05:16
I'm not talking about the stupid bronies!  They can't make up more then 5% of the people who will see this... they will all be oafs, and wait to watch it when it is STOLEN and put online.  Yes there will be brony bashes and some theaters will probably have special viewing for them... but this film, in order to be successful, it needs Mr. and Mrs. Johnson to take their kids to go see it.  It needs little Sara Lou begging Mommy and Daddy she wants to go see her technicolored ponies for the day, then remind Daddy about her wish for her birthday this year... a pony named Sparkle Cakes.

Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-01-09 00:09:11
Do you seriously think average Joe Shmoe mom and dad are gonna care if the animation looks good or better than on tv? You're giving people too much credit.

Fücking Nut Job is getting a sequel and it's animation is sub par. And it's f'ing Nut Job. Apparently it got enough to warrant a sequel. So... Yeah. You can't complain about parents nowadays not caring about the content their kids see and then saying they'll care enough not to take them to see a pony movie. If little 5yo Susie Q wants to see a movie about ponies, her mom will take her because ponies damnit!

So... Yeah.

Some general good news.  Hasbro stock surged over 12 points today and yesterday after posting their earning for Q4 and full year 2016.  They jumped from the low $80/share to almost $100/share in 48 hours.  Pretty nuts but it means whatever they're doing over there is making money.  MLP as a single property I haven't had the time (or real interest, tbh.) to see what their toyline sales are like but, considering some of the quality of product they've been making lately (Did you see that new Guardians of Harmony Chrysalis?  Fucking awesome!)  (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01JKAR1ZM/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER) I think MLP is safer than it's ever been.  I wouldn't say it'll survive the movie potentially tanking, but we'll definitely see a season 8 at the minimum.

I am glad their toy department is getting their shit together, either way.

Season 7 just had 10 episode pics released.  You can find them on Equestria Daily.

Also de Lancia (Discord) said he is needed for voice recording in season 8 episodes.  So that could confirm a season 8 is already in the works, or he possibly meant to say season 7.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-03-18 18:18:22
Recall the voice actors don't know what seasons are currently happening and stuff. At one point De lancia said he wasn't in S4 or something when he was. He could think S7 already happened for what we know. Who knows. The VA's have admitted they're not very good at keeping track what happens when. Which is why they're not allowed to talk too much about stuff about the show since they don't keep track of what's happened so far or not.

The title card and the intro.  That is my speculation.  Intro will probably just add some new characters in it, but they might update the tune and the title card might be that deep purple they've been using.

Looks like they "over animated" like in cereal commercials.  ;D  So it will probably be very smooth.  I just hope they don't all look at chubby as Pinkie Pie did in that pose.  Lol.

Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-04-09 15:33:42
It's got the word trailer in it, Silver ;)

It would make sense for pinkie to be chubby.
Apparently this teaser wasn't approved by the head of the whole marketing thing, which is why the colors look a bit off.

And I edited it, Silver. *rolls eyes*and 3 days for news not to hit here is "a bit"
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: AnyPoneDrawn on 2017-04-09 15:34:55
It's not a trailer.  ;D  A trailer would give you backstory of what is to come.

How did they allow it to sneak out if it wasn't approved?  This motions to me this film could be a train wreck.  :P  Like those Rugrats movies that just threw on shading and called it good. 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Silverwing on 2017-04-09 15:36:21
Fandango calls everything a trailer when it isn't.  It isn't a trailer.  ;)  APD's link called it an "announcement."

It seems to me they changed the character designs a bit in the movie from the show... which worries me a bit.  They didn't just use the same generic pones.  I hope it turns out good. :) 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-04-09 15:38:18
It's a teaser.

Well yeah... They're using a completely new software. And changed the designs how? They still look like ponies. It just doesn't look as cheap.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: AnyPoneDrawn on 2017-04-09 15:39:43
Yeah, designs are totally changed based on Pinkie Pie.  She's fatter.  I'm trying to go through it frame by frame, but the video quality isn't that great for some reason.  It looks muddled.... :-\  Is that just my connection right now?

its because they didn't convert the files correctly. They were supposed to go from 64 to 32. And they didn't so the shading got crushed.

Considering it was a small teaser, it's probably why it was allowed through without being approved by the head.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

I think it's the shading that's making things look weird.
They did base the new models off the show.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Silverwing on 2017-04-09 15:46:39
Uh... It's not hand drawn. It's done with a software called ToonBoom. I mean, it's not flash.

It is hand drawn and animated with ToonBoom to make it easier.  ToonBoom allows them to slap everything together and smooth it out.  So they draw the basis, and then can use ToonBoom to do the rest.  But overall, it is still a frame by frame application unlike CGI programs.

It is "hand drawn" and imported to Toon Boom.
that doesn't mean it's animated hand drawn. I mean, they could've drawn the sprites and stuff by hand. But I highly doubt the thing is hand drawn animation.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

In the animation industry, for the modern era, this is a hand drawn cartoon.

It is either hand drawn or CGI now days.

The shading makes these things look so off. ;D 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-04-09 15:49:03
I think they're doing the cheeks thing artists like ATaF do. Where the snouts in the center of the face and cheek can be seen behind it. It helps the face not look so flat. And again, the demolished shading makes things look worse.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Silverwing on 2017-04-09 15:51:48
The cheek thing. :D  It might help them make faces more expressive too.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

And soon you will have a fandom split between drawing "Show" style or "movie" style. ;)
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-04-09 15:55:08
I honestly think no one will care APD >_>
People who are fans of the show acknowledge its heavily restricted by only using Flash.
I imagine complaints now because it looks wonky. I'm sure once a big trailer comes out people will say the squishy cheeks look cute. You'll prob get a troll or two here saying "not show style flash, bad!" And people taking them seriously, but honestly? This is a huge step up.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: AnyPoneDrawn on 2017-04-09 15:56:49
There will be wars about it.  Believe me.  It also gives credence to artists who have done the cheek thing all along. ;D 

It is a huge step!  It will be interesting as to how the fandom will take it.  But I am sure it will be great.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Silverwing on 2017-04-09 15:57:40
It will certainly take some getting used to this new style.  We will probably be spoiled after seeing the great animation in the movie, then seeing the FLASH Cartoon which will look different.

I think you're over exaggerating. I mean, te designs for the movie have been released a while back and no one said nay.

We'll just have to accept the show has its limits but they do try to push it to the max with flash. But it's a simple show with simple animation.

No they haven't.  We first saw them 3 days ago.

I mean granted... we've sorta seen them since 2012. ;)  But they are slightly different and more animatic now. :)

Look at AJ's face. It's got the cheek thing. And Pinkie's got some extra pink next to her mouth that Dash doesn't have from approximately the same angle.

Compared to 99% of the other FLASH shows, they are the best... second only to Johnny Test which is the best FLASH show of all time in terms of quality, execution of animation, and story. 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-04-09 16:09:36
Well, cuz they try. The animators know that Flash is a tool. Other people see it as a quick and cheap way to make animation. The show animators know it's not the best but they work hard with what they have.

Johnny Test is bleeeegh. Especially its stories. Blegh. Unless you meant MLP.

No, not that.  That isn't telling us anything though.  I'm talking about animation.  Stylistically, anyone can change stuff for a movie poster.  That isn't what I am talking about.  The average person will just view this as the same as the show, and that is what we all did.  But not that we finally saw some animation, we can see some different.s

It tells us the style has changed a bit. As in the show they don't do the cheek thing.
Sure we don't know how the movement will look like, but it still tells us the shading is a lot better (hue rip teaser trailer), and they're doing the chub cheek snout in the center of the face thing.

I don't see the cheek thing like sticking out on Applejack, but her snout is a cute amount of chub.  I honestly just see a round head and her snout is more inward turned to us.  They've done that in the show sometimes on just certain sequences.  Otherwise they do this...

Well like, there is cheek around her mouth which the show doesn't do. Also, this comment from Derpibooru:

And I’m sure you’ve noticed that the bodies of the Mane 6 are all slightly different from eachother, something that we don’t see anything of in the main show.
Why Pinkie looks so chub.

MLP:FiM The movie is hand drawn (http://www.gagneint.com/Final%20site/Whatsnew/archive/2017/04_April/09.html).  Just to clarify and they use toonboom to further animate it digitally.  Article touches on it a bit, and goes back further talking about these two Bellingham, WA animators in previous posts (http://www.gagneint.com/Final%20site/Whatsnew/archive/2016/10_Oct/09.html).

How come so many countries have better themes then us?  Ours are always super short to make time for commercials....
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-04-17 14:37:01
So many countries? Ehhh.... Japan's are hit and miss with their animes. And if you're talking strictly MLP, the italian version was the exception. Most others I believe just stick to the short intro.

And well, if that's the long one, it's the extended version. The one they air with the show is only about a minute long I think. Which is still long yeah. Short themes aren't always bad, but getting too long and it's annoying and tedious, like the Madoka Magica intro.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Darrin on 2017-04-17 14:44:07
You have to find a fine balance, and usually 30 seconds is that balance.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-04-17 14:45:17
30 seconds seems a bit short. I mean, there are even some that don't have one, like Regular Show.
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: AnyPoneDrawn on 2017-04-17 15:17:31
Regular Show wasn't given one originally because it was going to only be a 15 minute show, and they wanted to squeeze in more commercials.  The real reason why most shows don't do intro's anymore is because the networks want more commercial time.  30 seconds more...  Gumball also doesn't often show their intro, but they actually made a full intro to the show. 
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion

What Canada is doing with their airing this year is what networks do when they try to KILL a show.  No joke.  Networks will kill a show by putting it in a bad time slot and revealing them all very quickly.  It is a poor way of premiering a show. I hate what they are doing to it and it's messing a lot of stuff up.  Very confusing.

Be careful everyone.  Somehow all the pony stuff has leaked from pre show to season 7.  Everything has leaked.  So be careful of new episodes.

I am really curious and would love to see the material that was pitched to get the show on the air.  Have no idea where people find all this leaked stuff.

But as usual, I assume we will follow the televised broadcast as we have always done as our official determining points of when we can talk about stuff on upcoming episodes.

MLP Doing Great, Possible Second Movie!

Yesterday, Hasbro held it's annual 3rd quarter investor relations conference call. With the movie releasing, Toys R' Us filing bankruptcy, and HASCON happening all in this specific time frame, they had quite a bit of important stuff to talk about.  Here it is broken down.

Franchise brands increased 7%, with pony being one of the big ones.

The movie was successful at re-energizing and inviting new fans from their standpoint.

They are banking on making good money from sales of the blu-ray and DVD

The movie is just shy of $40 million. ( It was $35 million last we reported).

They didn't go into detail on the budget of the movie, but did mention multiple times that it was modest. The movie will absolutely pay back it's investment!

They are seeing it driving games, general toys, and more.

More pony games possibly on the way. They didn't go into detail on what those will be (More mobile most likely)

They will be using what they learned from the My Little Pony model in other brands since it was so successful.

Pony is a strong performer on Netflix.

Still plans to continue releasing the movie internationally.

The interesting bit came here when they said, "The model for My Little Pony has really worked, and I think the team is beginning to think about what a next movie will look like."

Whether that is another theater release, or a straight to DVD deal, we might be seeing another My Little Pony movie on the horizon.

I agree, it was the best season of all in my mind.  Yes some early seasons were good, but this was definitely the best. Most enjoyable, content heavy, and lots of development.

It was a great season.  I am not sure if I am just super excited since it is the most recent and the one I most remember, but I remember there were earlier seasons that were really good too.  But I would definitely give this season a 9 overall.  It beat almost all expectations!

While this is the best referer we have as to which season people like best, I do feel that maybe the newest season is still a bit TOO fresh on people's mind and a lot of newbies too.

But none the less, Equestria Daily held a poll to see which season fans thought was the best of MLP:FiM.  The results overwhelming said season 7 with season 3 being the worst.

S3 is is correctly placed.

But S1 forever, man.  Flawed to pieces, but better overall.  Like, I dunno, Mass Effect 1 vs ME2 & ME3.

I have chosen this hill, and dammit, I shall die defending it!

(Full disclosure: I've not yet got around to watching S7; the sentiment of this poll and this thread seems to suggest that maybe I should do so sooner rather than later...)
Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: RainyFunshine on 2017-12-04 14:35:35
Season 7 is the best season.  Hand down, no question.  But I do feel this poll has season 1 too far down.  3 was a turd season, and I don't remember  much else, it becomes a blur.

SUPPOSED PONY LEAK, GENERATION 5, CHARACTER LEAK

For those interesting in this supposed leak of sorts, here is the link to all the images (http://www.horse-news.net/2017/12/the-ride-just-hit-bump-but-it-never.htm) and info.  I think it is a load of poo, the timeline seems rushed, too quick, and the character work seems legit in areas, and fake in others.  Of course, the biggest fear is that the animation will become CGI.  The biggest plus if this is true?  Ponies for a long time.

None the less, it is possible pony news.  Enjoy!

There has been a lot of leaks on 4chan regarding S8-9, a second movie, the end of G4 and G5 in the works. I'm taking it all with a grain of salt, but right now Derpibooru and Equestria Daily are under lockdown mode since it is all illegally obtained and contains personal texts and emails from the staff.

I for one think it is awful that someone is leaking this information.  I hope when they get caught, they will be punished to the fullest extent of the law. 

Not going to watch or look at any of that stuff.  But I also wonder how some accessed and got all this stuff?  Is it a disgruntled staff employee?  Is it an actual hack? 

NO LEAKING HERE or discussing.  We did a great job last season not talking about early airings, and I have faith we can do that again for possibly all of season 8.

This should be read in full.

The human cost of Art Theft

Feeling a lot of emotions right now over what happened this weekend with MLP. Anger, outrage, and disgust present in spades (and directed specifically at the leaker) but the emotion which outweighs them is sadness.

I feel sad for a multitude of reasons. The first of which has my thoughts dwelling upon everyone at both DHX and Hasbro who had to drop everything they were doing this weekend to have to head into work and deal with the single largest brushfire the franchise has ever seen. Their weekend was stolen from them. Which in and of itself stinks beyond all reason, but to have the weekend before Christmas stolen, when people are starting to travel to visit loved ones, do last minute Christmas shopping, or just take a breather before the long holiday to have to come in and deal with this…

My heart goes out to each and every single one of them. None of them deserved to have their downtime stolen.

My thoughts dwell upon those who had their company e-mails stolen, and then published on the net. In addition to the massive crime which this was, this is also a massive violation of privacy. Just thinking of the potential contents being correspondences with loved ones, jokes shared with friends, ideas collaborated with co-workers and to have all of that released to the world… I wouldn't wish that upon one anyone.

I can't help but think about the writers on the show who had their work stolen and released before their stories were ready to be seen by the world. There is something about being a writer on a cartoon, or really television show, which I know a lot of people don't realize. For the most part, the writers don't see the process where their scripts are turned into fully animated cartoons. The first time they see their stories is when they air… just like the rest of the audience.

And then there's everyone on the production crews who had their work released before it was complete. For those who have ever worked in the arts, at all, it's quite literally the same as having someone release an unfinished version of the piece you are working on right now. It isn't finished. It's not done. It's not the final reflection of the vision… but the world has seen it and there is not a whole lot that can be done to make the world unsee.

The theft and subsequent release of in progress intellectual property is not something which can be resolved by returning the stolen content. There was more stolen than just the IP. The part which was stolen, and can never be brought back are the opportunities to showcase their work for the audience to experience. The creators of this content have lost the opportunity to surprise their audience with new story ideas. No longer can they wow the audience by showcasing their mastery of their newest skills.

It was their moment to shine, their moment of vindication, their ultimate reward for all the work they had put in on the show, which was stolen from them. It was stolen from all these wonderful, amazing people who I have met and gotten to know, even just a little bit, over the past 7 years… and the actions of one selfish criminal have hurt all of them.

What happened was something terrible. It is not something to be praised. It is not something to go and confront/harass the show staff about. It is not something to be used as a rallying cry. It is not something to complain about. It is not something to derive enjoyment out of. It is not something to be dissected and analyzed for review or critique. It is none of that.

What it is, and how it breaks down is simple. What happened is a crime. The leaker is a criminal. The people who've work on the My Little Pony franchise at both Hasbro and DHX are victims. Those are the simple, indisputable facts.

There is only one person to whom any ire should be directed. I hope beyond hope the party who is responsible is found and brought to justice. Enough is enough.

I know many have been tempted and I am sure some of you watched the episodes leaked.  I am sure some looked through the pictures, and leaked emails.  I hope you didn't, but I know some did.  I know I looked at the drawings, but didn't look at the emails or videos.  I am not proud of that and I am not making an excuse for myself or anyone else here.  This isn't a light matter we are seeing as a community.  We witnessed theft against the ones that have brought us happiness and joy... and just by scanning those images I saw, I feel horrible.... I was part of the crime for looking.

With that, I am sorry.  I hope others here didn't do what I did.

I didn't want to be spoiled, but I read the editorial that MasterX posted.  This is such horrible news for all the creators, artists, actors, and everyone involved with the show.  :-\

This should be read in full.

The human cost of Art Theft

Feeling a lot of emotions right now over what happened this weekend with MLP. Anger, outrage, and disgust present in spades (and directed specifically at the leaker) but the emotion which outweighs them is sadness.

I feel sad for a multitude of reasons. The first of which has my thoughts dwelling upon everyone at both DHX and Hasbro who had to drop everything they were doing this weekend to have to head into work and deal with the single largest brushfire the franchise has ever seen. Their weekend was stolen from them. Which in and of itself stinks beyond all reason, but to have the weekend before Christmas stolen, when people are starting to travel to visit loved ones, do last minute Christmas shopping, or just take a breather before the long holiday to have to come in and deal with this…

My heart goes out to each and every single one of them. None of them deserved to have their downtime stolen.

My thoughts dwell upon those who had their company e-mails stolen, and then published on the net. In addition to the massive crime which this was, this is also a massive violation of privacy. Just thinking of the potential contents being correspondences with loved ones, jokes shared with friends, ideas collaborated with co-workers and to have all of that released to the world… I wouldn't wish that upon one anyone.

I can't help but think about the writers on the show who had their work stolen and released before their stories were ready to be seen by the world. There is something about being a writer on a cartoon, or really television show, which I know a lot of people don't realize. For the most part, the writers don't see the process where their scripts are turned into fully animated cartoons. The first time they see their stories is when they air… just like the rest of the audience.

And then there's everyone on the production crews who had their work released before it was complete. For those who have ever worked in the arts, at all, it's quite literally the same as having someone release an unfinished version of the piece you are working on right now. It isn't finished. It's not done. It's not the final reflection of the vision… but the world has seen it and there is not a whole lot that can be done to make the world unsee.

The theft and subsequent release of in progress intellectual property is not something which can be resolved by returning the stolen content. There was more stolen than just the IP. The part which was stolen, and can never be brought back are the opportunities to showcase their work for the audience to experience. The creators of this content have lost the opportunity to surprise their audience with new story ideas. No longer can they wow the audience by showcasing their mastery of their newest skills.

It was their moment to shine, their moment of vindication, their ultimate reward for all the work they had put in on the show, which was stolen from them. It was stolen from all these wonderful, amazing people who I have met and gotten to know, even just a little bit, over the past 7 years… and the actions of one selfish criminal have hurt all of them.

What happened was something terrible. It is not something to be praised. It is not something to go and confront/harass the show staff about. It is not something to be used as a rallying cry. It is not something to complain about. It is not something to derive enjoyment out of. It is not something to be dissected and analyzed for review or critique. It is none of that.

What it is, and how it breaks down is simple. What happened is a crime. The leaker is a criminal. The people who've work on the My Little Pony franchise at both Hasbro and DHX are victims. Those are the simple, indisputable facts.

There is only one person to whom any ire should be directed. I hope beyond hope the party who is responsible is found and brought to justice. Enough is enough.

Supposedly more episodes were leaked and the season finale, as well as all the information and synopsis of every episode.  Also more character pictures were released for the next gen and their animation techniques.  I didn't read into it, but that is a quick synopsis from a no-spoiler person.

I have not been too impressed with this season.  The season opener was a real let down, and the rest of the episodes this season have been meh to me.  The best one was the one with Maud and that was just alright.  That said, there is still plenty of time to turn this boat around and I am hoping it does after the awesome season 7.

Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Discussion
Post by: MasterXtreme on 2018-04-23 20:40:48
I hope this is real... and is finished and released before something bad happens to it.  A Sims version with PONIES.  Never thought I would say that, lol! ;D  They are saying it isn't related to show and any coincidence is just coincidence... and hopefully thats enough to keep EA/Maxis/and Hasbro away. 

THE PONIES OFFICIAL WEBSITE (https://theponies.org)
(https://theponies.org/wp-content/gallery/developer-images/unknown-1.png)(https://theponies.org/wp-content/gallery/developer-images/PoniesCAPAlpha.png)

Is it legal?

Yes, this project is legal. The Ponies is a non-profit project focusing to re-create Electronic Arts’ original The Sims game (TS1) in the form of a parody featuring a visual design inspired by Hasbro’s My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series. The game is programmed with C# code, and is completely 100% original, reverse-engineering the gameplay mechanics of TS1, while implementing many new features. We neither distribute, nor alter any intellectual property belonging to Electronic Arts, Inc. or Hasbro, Inc. This project is non-commercial.  No content such as official show characters, locations, or any other copyrighted material will be present in this game.

What features will be in the game?

In The Ponies, you will be given the power to create your very own ponies and control their lives. You get to choose their interactions which affect their future. Expand their relationships with other ponies to make friends or foe. Build up their skills to help them function better in the world and in their careers; including cooking, creativity, mechanical, body, logic, and charisma. Build their homes, even including the everyday places they visit. Take control of their every move, whether that ends up taking them down a successful, happy life or makes them a complete train wreck. Everything is up to you.

What is The Ponies?

The Ponies is a community-run project aiming to create a clone of the original Sims game (from scratch, of course) but inspired by the design of MLP:FiM (none are affiliated). The game is still in early development, but is so far being programmed in the C# language and built in Unity. We plan to release early builds as we go, so the game would be early access. When the game is completed, it will be free to play.

They just released some of their soundtrack HERE (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZgV46wCDrs-qBAjz3Z-Ufcbkbpv_937D).

So many people get all dramatic about how it's been the last X amount of years.  I started in about 2013 I think... maybe late 2012.  It was great and I remember the ups and downs, very few downs in my opinion.  One down was the Hub disappearing.  I was worried for a bit what was going to happen.  But otherwise it's been a good ride.  Got to meet a lot of great people including all of you guys. :)

Ehhh.... Personally not looking it.  Too many colors and they just look like rainbow colored OC's designed by people with no idea how to match and design colors.  Looks pretty awful. No one wears clothes like that. 

I am sure these are just speciality clothes, but lets see what their everyday clothes look like.

Honestly I've been loving these shorts. Sweet, fun, and are like little appetizers before the entree. They keep you filled and busy while waiting. This one probably has to be the best one since it's fun, sweet, has a lot of nice gags. Plus, we get a look into the lives of alicorns when they get ill. So of this is canon, it's certainly interesting.

Hasbro Confirms Season Nine Is the LAST SEASON OF Friendship is Magic As We Know it. (https://www.equestriadaily.com/2019/02/season-9-confirmed-to-be-final-season.html)

But confirms much more to come including a CGI movie and a new direction for My Little Pony that they hope brings in new fans and brings old fans together.

It's actually been confirmed that the new movie is going to be the intro for Generation 5. Which I honestly look forward to.

But in truth, I'm honestly happy its ending now. Not entirely but in the sense that, none of us really want it to overstay its welcome. That would turn it into something the the Simpsons or Family Guy. Shows that have been around for way too long than they should have and a lot of people are saying, "Just end already!"

So yeah. I'm sad the show is ending especially since it changed my life in a few ways. But I'm happy at the same time because we got nine seasons of it. That's much more than a lot of other popular animated shows get. Hell even MA Larson, one of the shows writers, said himself at a convention that the show was MEANT to end with season three. But Hasbro kept it going. So think about that. We got six bonus seasons. That right there is amazing.

So here's to you MLP FiM. You gave me and everyone else so much and here's hoping you go out on a high note.

I'm also not too worried that this generation of MLP is ending.  A new generation is coming and I am sure the fandom will continue with that one.  I don't expect places like Equestrian Daily to just end after FiM.  It will continue with the new MLP show as will many of the fans.

It's sad, but I am hoping for a better future for the show and the fandom as it moves into an evolutionary stage... a new generation!

Are you guys worried what will happen to the random with the new show? Will it fracture? I hope all of us stay close.

I'm worried, but I hope it will be grand.  It will be sad when the last episode does in fact play and that last scene pans out or whatever happens.  I hope it had super closure.

This is sad to see how this has come so far and now it's ending. At least they are ending it properly, or at least have the opportunity too.

AND THIS IS SUPER HEAVY SPOILER HEAVY.  The video above is arguably MORE SPOILER FULL.  BE CAREFUL!  It has a massive spoiler moment.

If someone turns out to be a traitor... I never would have expected that.  I don't think that will happen.... it would rock the fandom and with less then a season to solve or make good, people would be up in arms.
