Doesn't make it any less annoying.

Especially when the hiatus is five months. I remember FIM did it during S1 and S2, but in those days, it was maximum 3 weeks break. Here, the last episode of LPS S3 aired in August, and it's apparently not going to resume until January.

Ech.

the turtles beating them. :p
I don't count Splinter beating him since he and the shredder are supposed to be Co-equals in skill, and it doesn't really feel like an achievement for the turtles.
(Kind of why I wondered why the shredder was so scared of the turtles in TMNT 2 to the point of taking a hostage since he curb stomped them before splinter showed up in 1)

also damnit, erased my post to find a good turtle clip to put on my last one instead of leaving it blank and you beat me to posting a response. >.<

Sort of weird how after the very first TMNT issue had the turtles beating Shredder and making him commit suicide, most other adaptions make Shredder so strong that the turtles wind up either retreating or being saved when they first fight him (besides the fact that the Mirage Turtles were specifically raised to defeat the Shredder, unlike other adaptions).

I feel like I'm one of the few who geek the hell out about anything pony related. It's been a while (since the end of Season 4) that I've actually been excited about anything really. Although I love Ponies in Pony form, I still enjoyed this movie. I'm also a sucker for music, since it is a huge part of my life. I'd prefer that all the negativity stay out of this thread, but hell, I can't control you guys. If you have something you liked about the movie please feel free to share it.

  How do you promote Equestria Girls in Brasil?

Dont show Equestria Girls at all in the videos.
of course.

Or now the show will be known as "My little Pony: Equestria Girls" instead of "My little Pony: Friendship is Magic"?

Or it is even more prove of how much hasbro just want you to think on it like one entity, and who ever goes around saying how Equestria Girls is just an option is a fool on Hasbro's and reality's eyes.

Whenever I see this picture it makes me think of how Apple Bloom is actually the toughest of the CMC; she doesn't care about her appearance or about pleasing other people, she just wants to be left alone to do what she needs to. She's got guts. Probably one of the only fictional characters I will ever respect.

So while I'm at it, post more on Apple Bloom and what you think of her mighty strength.

Truth be told, I kind of wish they'd release some more backstory books detailing Canterlot and Cloudsdale. Rather interested in how those two cities early days went.

In retrospect I wonder if the Dazzlings were the group of three hippocampi known as "the sirens" or if sirens are the species.

>I am STILL pissed that the comic staff had to change that gorgeous cover of Hippocampi mermares for the buttugly "normal" mermare design.
Same, and I don't necessarily mind the strange sea pony/merpony design, but... They're not sea pony/merponies, are they? They're some sort of unrelated creature. Sea ponies and merponies are meant to look like ponies (from the neck and waist up, respectively).

>>anti-competition vibe
>It was a bit muddled, and they could have done with a slight classification from the mane six (Like rainbow saying "I don't mind competing, but taking it too far is another thing") or whatnot, but the Point of their song was being a sociopath about competition rather than a good hearted one.

Yeah, but this is a kid's show, they wouldn't drag things like guns and daggers into it.

im the one which would point out rape implication on the first second.

and semoving someone's dignity doesnt imply in 3 seconds "RAPE"

i mean, i could thougnt on throwing blood on them and laught and degrating them as humans beings (because they are not even humans)

But rape shouldnt be the first thing that pass on your head.

now, if she said "and then they rape them" then you can think on rape.

We have Flash Sentry for Twilight, Cheese Sandwich for Pinkie, Soarin' for Rainbow Dash, and Trenderhoof for either Rarity or AJ.

But I have been thinking for a while now that the show needs a Stallion for Fluttershy; but now what do you think he'd be like?

I can imagine Fluttershy's "Special SomePony" being of the hippie/counterculture/earthy type (so I guess he'd naturally be an Earth Pony), and I can imagine his Cutie Mark being a 'White Dove carrying an Olive Branch': http://sweetclipart.com/multisite/sweetclipart/files/imagecache/middle/peace_dove.png

I just want to like the five key episodes for what they did, and not bother with the S4 finale and the way it discarded the Mane Five's efforts to earn their keys, in-exchange for Twilight's over-empowerment. Unfortunately, too many bronies have mixed feelings about the five key episodes, disliked the Rainbow Power and Rainbow Castle, but constantly praised the Twilight/Tirek fight scene for making MLP dark and edgy, like all of those Dark Age comics from the 90's, even though the Mane Five were victimized and disposed of along the way.

This is most especially true with Tommy Oliver, aka Brony Curious. He liked Rarity Takes Manehattan and Pinkie Pride, but ruthlessly criticized Breezies, Rainbow Falls, and Leap of Faith. He also praised the fight scene in that finale, but disliked the way the Rainbow Power was presented, namely as the same thing as the Elements of Harmony, but more spruced up.

In other words, I'm in the minority of opinions when it comes to the S4-long story-arc, and I need help dealing with this.

>That's because Twilight's Kingdom was constantly being praised for its "genre transcending" (and I mean it loosely) fight scene

No it wasn't. People thought it was new and different and exciting, but no one said 'genre transcending'. Got a source for that?

>then people are like, "I hate the Rainbow Power and Rainbow Castle because of their designs and purposes in the story."

Because Rainbow Power LOOKS silly but the CONCEPT of it is widely accepted.

And the same goes with Twilight's Castle, they think it is a gaudy crystal mess. ((See image for one person's idea of how it should have looked. Not much different, but the colors are now easier to look at.) But as before, the CONCEPT is still widely accepted.

>Meanwhile, the five key episodes backing up the finale were just mixed, with three of them considered the worst, and the other two considered the best.
>> No. 36782438
>>36782294
The fight was superficially exciting, but as multitudes of people kept telling me, Twilight didn't even win that fight. She ended it in a draw, and by the time Tirek held all of her friends hostage, she willingly gave up the alicorn magic to save her friends, earning herself her final key from Discord in the process, just so that they could unlock Rainbow Power and use it to love and tolerate the shit out of Tirek.

Unfortunately, people kept saying that the fight scene was actually done better than the Rainbow Power, Rainbow Castle, and some of the five key episodes. That technically implied that Meghan McCarthy had given up on the show's friendship themes, just so that she could turn it into Dragon Ball Z. Now, I'm perfectly aware that there are people who constantly told me otherwise. But if that's the case, then what the hay am I supposed to believe, instead?

It's not the cameo itself, it's the idea behind it.

It's an OC that represents misogyny and hate. Being placed into a childrens' comic about friendship. Yeah, that's not good.

Perhaps the cameo would have been meaningless before, but not anymore. Now the fandom knows what that character represents and Mr. Anderson's views regardless of whether we were involved in that drama beforehand. A cameo is no longer meaningless once you understand it. Perhaps it would have remained in obscurity if no one had ever addressed it, but that's not what happened. The fact is, people are now aware of it and it has changed the way they see it.

I'm reminded of an article I read a while back about a black woman that won an award for a fantasy novel she had written. It was quite an honor for her to win such an award and she was proud to receive it. The thing is, the award was in the shape of the bust of H. P. Lovecraft, who the woman later discovered held some very racist views. This completely changed the way she felt whenever she looked at it. The same is true here; the very knowledge of what that character represents has probably made plenty of people uncomfortable.
