Equestria Girls Anticipation/Discussion Thread Marimo (Elements Connoisseur)!Mrb.TaRPksCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 2521376[View All]

To help cut down all the EqG threads, maybe we should have an official discussion thread. It's a lot closer than season 4 at least.

The synopsis is "When a crown is stolen from the Crystal Empire, Twilight Sparkle pursues the thief into an alternate world where she transforms into a teenage girl who must survive her biggest challenge yet… high school. With help from her new friends who remind her of Ponyville’s Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, and Fluttershy, she embarks upon a quest to find the crown and change the destiny of these two parallel worlds."

The film will start being shown in theaters starting on June 16th.

Straight up asking me if I'm a pedophile? Somebody's hungry for scandal.

Sorry to burst your bubble but, boringly enough, I'm no more a pedophilile than most men [en.wikipedia.org], and do a better job of isolating fantasy from reality than anyone Chris Hansen would be interested in.

On ponychan, you've more interesting forms of sexual deviance to look for, anyway.

I don't think hands are supposed to actually exist, and earlier uses of it have just been slips. Using the phases "getting out of hand" or "on the other hand" without replacing them with hoof, similar to how they occasionally use anybody instead of anypony, or say things like bullets or tanks exist.

The hooves of cows are sometimes called claws too.

If his feet can be called that, then his hands could probably be called that too.

Well, spike's "claws" work like hands, and monkeys are confirmed to exist within Equestria and they have hands as well. Also, Iron Will, yeah.

With so many instances of hands existing, it's just a bit odd that they'd have Twilight flip out and not know what they are, and then later, blatantly make a "What are hands?" joke.

lyra saying "what are hands?"
that will break the heart of a ton of people, while at the same time is referencing the fandom version.

In other news, it's really easy to rustle brodles over on EQD, all you have to do is comment on their 9/10 scores of Equestria Girls. Instant flame war.

I finally saw it today. It was "Meh" to me at best, facepalmingly horrifying at worst. Sunset Shimmer's Human Form was pretty good looking, but everyone else ranged from meh to mega-crap as far as humanized looks go. Also, Sunset Shimmer's plan made no sense from the beginning. Rather than stay in Equestria and steal the other elements, she goes back into the alternate world for no reason. It's like this show has trouble writing good villains.

>Remembers that this MLP and villains are supposed to be total pansies

Nevermind.

And Flash Sentry couldn't be anymore one-dimensional. Seriously, nobody cares about him. I'll stick with my Twixie ship, thank you very much.

And I enjoyed it like a bottle of piss given to a man who has spent 3 days without water in a desert.

Well, maybe Equestia Girls wasn't piss bad. Hasbro once again owes Studio B/THX Media a debt for being able to take a terrible idea and spin it into something tolerable. This whole idea of turning My Little Pony into a Monster High competitor was a whole bag of WTF. If they can take that and produce something that causes me to say, "Well, that was a satisfactory episode of pony of epic length," that's a major achievement of ace talent.

Amazing as it is, some people will claim to see things which aren't there, claiming everything that comes out of a franchise is the physical emboidement of things good and beautiful, regardless of how crazy that makes them look even after being pointed it out.

Just look at trekkies and all the crap they praise, or look at some at this very board.

Someone out there always likes something which can unquestionably be called bad simply for its source, so don't be surprised.

Opinions are funny like that.

I can see why people would enjoy the movie, and i would probably enjoy it myself if i didnt appreciate a well put together story over pure entertainment value.

EQG delivered the latter quite well, as the catchy songs and the animation quality could attest to, in addition to the jokes that quite a lot of people who disliked the movie as a whole can say they laughed at.

EQG did not deliver the former..well, pretty much at all.

Almost every situation comes about because the plot demanded it.

>How does Sunset Shimmer know about Twilight if she's not been back to equestria since she left.

>How does she know what an element of harmony would do in the human world.

>Twilight slept in the library, how did the librarian, who was already pissed off with her, miss that.

>How the hell is human-luna the vice-principal if she's so damn retarded.

>"Hey, you're a bitch who broke apart ours and presumably hundreds of other friendships in this school over the years to establish easily controlled cliques that you ruled over with iron fist. We should totally be friends because you didnt know that was a bad thing."

The climax of the film is meant to contain at least some explanation for things, but all it does (for me at any rate) is make certain questions extremely glaring.

>Element of harmony + person who's not meant to use it = a monster.
Okay, did shimmer know that would happen or did she just think she'd gain the magical power?
She knew something would happen, but whether that was just "having access to her magic+ a boost" or something is confusing.
Especially since the tears during her transformation sequence indicate that it was really fucking painful or something.

Personally, i would have liked the rest of the mane5 to come charging through the mirror wearing their elements (And looking like their pony selves because of it or some crap.) and blocking the death blast instead of the others.
Then you have the whole transformation sequence with Twilight on her own followed by the defeat of shimmer and everybody's counterparts going "WTF" at each other / Rarity in particular fangasming over all the clothes / FlutterHuman fangasming over the magical talking equines.
Bonus points if they do it in synch, with their counterparts apologizing for the other.

The mane5 come charging through because they saw what was happening through the mirror, which is something you would kind of expect from a magical mirror that's a portal to another world.
