Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

Fillychan Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 2527786[Last 50 Posts]

Welcome to Fillychan, where everything Filly, Funtasia, or both, is what it’s all about. Whether you’re having high expectations for the show, are interested in learning more about it, or are just a random bypasser, we wish you welcome.

It’s basically a serial thread at Ponychan, and not really its own forum or board. For those who are primarily experienced with 4chan or general forums, quick step introductions are at >>1017061, and other than that, you’re free to post here and try to talk about whatever you find fitting.

For those experienced with 4chan, but inexperienced with Ponychan:
-Rules on sex and violence are very unclear, but Derpibooru’s system is a good indicator. Safe is always allowed, Suggestive is virtually always allowed, Questionable is taking a big risk unless you know what you’re doing, and an Explicit will in most cases easily land you a ban or two. With rule-breaking pics, it’s often more likely to just have your picture deleted, unless it was clearly explicit.
-Anons are in the minority on Ponychan, but it’s perfectly good to stay anon. That being said, namefillies are usually more respected in serious conversations, and many anons on Ponychan has built up a bad reputation due to behaving like they would on 4chan.
-Conversational criticism associated with 4chan, like “Kill yourself”, are really bad arguments on Ponychan, and should be avoided. Usual talking and behaviour on this site is often like you would behave with a group of good friends around you in real-life. That being said, surprisingly many 4chan memes are fair to use due to being common enough to be recognised as memes, such as the “What the fuck did you say about me?” US secret soldier copypasta.
-It is perfectly allowed to criticise mods and admins, though a handful of them don’t like being insulted directly.
-There are no regulations on bad language at all. However, the more common a term is on 4chan, the higher the chance it’s wordfiltered on Ponychan. Also, overuse of bad language is often frowned upon.
-There are no regulations on whole kinds of content. Ponies are as you can imagine always accepted, but there are also no rules against general furry content. Even Finnish memes are usually allowed, though a few words may or may not be on the spambot temporary ban list if written in text.
-No regulations on image replies. An image post and an imageless post count equally much towards the autosage limits.
-If you’re missing some 4chan X features, you could try activating Ponychan X in the Settings page (no Greasemonkey required) and see if they are there.

For those experienced with forums, but inexperienced with imageboards:
-Instead of smileys and avatar pics, most posts have a free-choice picture attached to them, to indicate facial expressions, recurring avatars, or just to show a relevant pic. Screencaps from telly and movies, and art of any kind, works equally well. Build up a good collection of pics and off you go. Though you can choose not to have an image attached to a post.
-Topics are much less set in stone, and derails are often fair game. There’s also more opportunities to strike up a normal conversation, or a conversation spun off from another post.
-There are no regulations against double-posting and so on, as long as it isn’t blatant spam or goes on long enough to be a major annoyance. The most prominent effect of this is “image dumps”, where one poster quickly shares many pictures he have, at the rate of one image per post.
-No regulations on language, which means that there’s very few words that will land you a “spambot” autoban, and the few that does generally doesn’t make sense.
-No log-ins or accounts are required. Just choose any name (or even be anonymous), and a password in case you need to delete a post, and you can post.
-If you notice that a word or two in the post you wrote isn’t what you remember that they were, it’s very likely a wordfilter. Ponychan is very fond of them.For those experienced with 4chan, but inexperienced with Ponychan:<br /> -Rules on sex and violence are very unclear, but Derpibooru’s system is a good indicator.

I have a feeling that those are going to be some long three months ahead of us. I've spent the last month and a half finding stuff for the 'Daily and the occasional /oat/ threads, but who knows how long those'll last.

I could read most of it while only needing Google Translate for some phrases. Filly Butterfly seems to be the newest addition in their "seasonal releases", and there's another reference to Swarovski in there, this time explicitly to their crystals.

Universal Releases Trends is a name I need to keep in backhand on my search for new sources, and Filly Funtasia are aiming for release on "other multimedia platforms" in addition to a global telly release. The Filly brand was also the third-bestselling toy brand in some way according to the article.

This was a pretty good find in my eyes, though Funtasia Daily usually only deals with stuff that is somewhat related to the show, though you could try submitting it to him still.

I'd guess that development on the show has advanced enough that I don't think Filly Butterflies will be found in the early episodes, but maybe in the later ones if we're lucky.

Indeed. I remember in an /oat/ thread on the 30th that Positively Pinkie (Kind of a big but silly guy on /oat/, plus a mod) also mentioned that 2014 would be the year of the Filly.

Since I've made Filly threads on /oat/ between every 9 and 14 days, that reminds me that I should do a new one there sometime this weekend, on top of what I'm doing here on /gala/.

(Something I should have added to the quick steps in retrospect, is that Ponychanners have a hard time telling different anons apart, so I may mistake anons for each other or completely new posters.)<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1020384" onclick="return highlight('1020384', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1020384">&gt;&gt;1020384</a><br />Indeed.

The show is just a trailer (or two, depending on what you'd count) so far, and I wouldn't expect the premiere within at least two months from now.

And thanks. I'll need all the luck I can get with this serial, as it isn't based on a pre-assembled serial community.

I can't even remember where I got that pic from, but I recall I saw it in a very recent thread and saved it. Do you perhaps have more art hidden away somewhere if you want to share? It's at least not on DA's Filly group now or on what I can remember from FillyRT, which are my 2 of my 3 main sources for new fanart.

Ah, now I remember having looked through your Tumblr before. I prefer to give the pics I save situational names instead of including artist names, and I couldn't see any connection between the name Four Leaves and anything else.

My money is on the Filly franchise (as a whole or just Funtasia) getting their own user/channel/profile on Facebook, Twitter, and perhaps one or two additional places.

And that poster provides some interesting background to >>1019808, and since I haven't seen it yet (I was lurking at /ffg/ about once or twice), here's some reactional steps to it:
>#1/#2 toys and girls? I thought it was the other way around with #3/#1. Maybe girls weren't just about girl toys here?
>I can assure they have an interactive website, and some apps with little to do, but "fan club, and online community"? Are there Filly toy forums out there, or are they referring to the Funtasia fans?
>"Commitment to brand platforms, including (...) confectionary". So, we'll see Filly candy in stores someday?

Found something
http://dracco.filly.com/us/butterfly/home/
The Butterfly collection already has a German and even an English page up. There's no "undefined" parts unlike the English Witchy page, which is still like that. The collections part has hover-over names for the characters to make looking through them easier.
>They have the same Flower, Heart, Sun, Leaf, Water, and Special groups as the other races/species
>Most of the "families" are just groups of friends

It only took them three days to get a website up and running? Good find, by the way.

The first thing I notice is that many of the butterfly fillies have very ordinary names. Jack, Nina, Emma, Victoria, Max, and a few others. The other is that they're fond of having caterpillars and moths as pets.

How big could they be? Are they far smaller than the other Filly types (in spite of Elves and Fairies standing at a regular height), are all the types the same height (which would make the Butterfly pets very small), or are all of them very tiny?<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1027954" onclick="return highlight('1027954', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1027954">&gt;&gt;1027954</a><br />It only took them three days to get a website up and running?

The ordinary names are something, there's no lack of names they could possibly use whether it's European or English, so that's a bit odd. Maybe because it'll be one of the first Filly Collections to come to the US so they're using more relate-able names. But then again, more fantasy sounding names should hinder the market for little cutesy figurines like these. I just don't know.

The Butterfly Fillies could be smaller than the other Filly races, it would make the Filliverse more interesting, but I doubt it.

I think Filly's American toy release will focus on the early brands and then what was released after that, instead of skipping straight to the new stuff. That's how very many foreign broadcasts of American telly shows work, and I think the early American FiM blindbag releases worked that way.

So a 40 centimetre tall and metre-long (1'4''-ish and 3'4'') caterpillar could be a thing? Strawberry Shortcake BBA had a centipede thing higher than the girls, and much, much longer, but in that show the characters were like 6cm tall anyways.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1028037" onclick="return highlight('1028037', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1028037">&gt;&gt;1028037</a><br />I think Filly&#039;s American toy release will focus on the early brands and then what was released after that, instead of skipping straight to the new stuff.

I remember the Breezies well from back when I was looking through almost all of G3 Standard. I have a hard time believing that there'll be a FiM episode based on them, but then, I actually refused to believe that a FiM episode could be called Daring Don't until the very day it was broadcast.

But back to the G3 Breezies: I can see many similarities, especially with the antennas and muzzles.

At first, I was like "wut". Then I began to laugh. A lot. Then, when I took a look at their Filly Tree, I was back to "wut" again.

What else could I compare this with than Canterlot Wedding? Especially the promotion said episodes had? The "happy bride(s) and groom(s)" feeling feels pretty much exactly the same.

-The front page makes it hard to figure who's male and who's female, at least until I began looking at their attires. The Filly Tree explains it better, however.
-The Collection fillies doesn't seem to be clickable, which leaves their personalities (besides how they hooked up) in the blue.
-The story mentions a cake that changes flavour so that each guest gets their favourite flavour. If I got a brownie-carrot-strawberry-ish cake, I'd almost want to go to their multi-wedding just for that.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1032581" onclick="return highlight('1032581', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1032581">&gt;&gt;1032581</a><br />At first, I was like &quot;wut&quot;.

I wonder what those'd be. Could they be astronauts, creatures living in space (or on a moon), scientist-ish fillies at a planet observatory, or maybe an invading/coming-in-peace group from somewhere else ("Magic Fillies from Outer Space")?

I actually think the Magic Mirror was once a human. Including Battiwigs. Transformed humans. That's probably a shitty headcanon, right? Right now I'm still busy, but I see what I can do tomorrow. If not human, then more like a huge human-shaped fire that can change form at will. I think the joke will be that without the mirror, he's super OP but he's trapped in it and has Battiwigs do all the work because he can't move.
Some site mentioned he has the objective to steal magic. He probably wants to steal enough magic to break the mirror curse and return to his old evil overlord form.
At the very least, in the trailer he seems strong enough to slap Batti out of the window with his magic.

For the Space Fillies, I thought more like aliens living on a tiny planet, or a big space station that has Fillies from all kinds of places visiting and having fun together, including from Filly Funtasia. One could easily work in Magic, the Fairy King in there, since his magic is supposedly the "most powerful in the universe" according to the site, which is oddly specific. He would power the space station and this is also why he only visits Fairy Kingdom once a year. His "dark ship" mentioned in his bio that comes from "far realms beyond the magical land" could also be a space ship.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1033361" onclick="return highlight('1033361', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1033361">&gt;&gt;1033361</a><br />I actually think the Magic Mirror was once a human.

It's certainly an odd headcanon, but then, what shows are there that doesn't have headcanons involve at least aspects of a post-apocalyptic human society?

>He probably wants to steal enough magic to break the mirror curse and return to his old evil overlord form.

I'm pretty sure too it could be something like that.

>At the very least, in the trailer he seems strong enough to slap Batti out of the window with his magic.

Wasn't Batti slammed against a white wall on the outside? Could work if the dark room's window led out to a corridor, but my guess is that it's an explosion (or other force) caused by something involving the episode's climax.

>Right now I'm still busy, but I see what I can do tomorrow.

Interesting to note, is that an up-and-coming (and still quite established) artist decided to draw that request too yesterday, the result of which (or one-half of it; the other half just had a different cape colour) is behind the pic spoiler in case you want to wait with seeing it until later. The /oat/ thread I linked in this thread some days ago lasted... longer than expected, so that's where she's been at. Keep this artist name in mind: Time Lord.

The Space Fillies idea sounds good, but it could get strange if the Fairy King was in control of two distinct types at the same time. I imagine everything from loyalty conflicts to in-universe conspiracy theories coming from this.

I'd like it if Magic is sort of a black sheep under the specials, I think he's the only male, he constantly leaves his kingdom (in comparison to most other rulers who at least visit it once a month or even throw parties). It doesn't have to be him who is the ruler of the Space Fillies, he could have just romanced the Space Queen or something like that.

I don't really think post-apo, I just mean humans or human-like beings in a sort of fantasy setting. As long as we don't go modern, they are not that out of place.

I do think Batti was slapped by the magic. If you look closely before he slams into the wall, he comes out of a window where the same stool the Wizard was leaned on is locked onto the window, and when he tries to sit up, little stools fly around his head like that traditional "birds flying around the head" visual gag, suggesting that the Wizard moved the stool with his magic and slapped Battiwigs outside with it. I could be wrong, of course.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1037462" onclick="return highlight('1037462', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1037462">&gt;&gt;1037462</a><br />I&#039;d like it if Magic is sort of a black sheep under the specials, I think he&#039;s the only male, he constantly leaves his kingdom (in comparison to most other rulers who at least visit it once a month or even throw parties).

So far from the specials we have:
"Pearl", greedy Mermaid Empress who has hidden a giant treasure somewhere down in the sea.
"Jewel", the teleporting princess of the elves. To no surprise, she channels Galadriel and lives in a giant tree palace.
The ice unicorns either have no ruler or listen to Princess Sparkle.
"Sparkle", the cute princess of the unicorns, who spreads harmony (!!) and likes to throw parties more than anything. In FF, she's the headmistress.
"Magic", the Fairy King and an alicorn (Fairy+Unicorn) who only visits once a year and is said to hold magic more powerful than anyone else in the universe.
"Crystal", for once not a ruler but a mysterious princess who shows up at all the big parties and gives out all her cash but nobody really knows who she really is.
"Abra" and "Cadabra", the twin witches and rulers of the Witchies. While Abra is a good soul, Cadabra is morally ambiguous and loves to pull pranks, sort of a Celestia & Discord deal here. Together, their magic might be even stronger than Magic's.
Ice Elves either also have no ruler or they listen to Princess Jewel.
"Scarlet", Princess of the Filly Butterflies. She can magic flowers out of nothing and she has pretty wings. So far the least impressive out of the specials.So far from the specials we have:<br />&quot;Pearl&quot;, greedy Mermaid Empress who has hidden a giant treasure somewhere down in the sea.<br />&quot;Jewel&quot;, the teleporting princess of the elves.

Judging by a look at the Filly website's 3 big types, and for the sake of another point of view, using another language translation in case there's differences (After all, it'll be translated from German either way), I can find some interesting stuff about the specials:

Crystal seems to be from a faraway country too, and plays on the Cinderella effect by disappearing "before midnight". I imagine her as a nobody in the daily life, and maybe she has a double-life?

Sparkle is formulated as "sprinkling harmony down on everyone who's coming to Crystalia", so harmony appears to be a physical substance there, or at least a spell.

Magic is however only mentioned as "sailing from the kingdoms on the other side of this magical land/country", but it's a bit strange that the Fairy King barely bothers being in the kingdom he's the top chief of. Perhaps he's the offspring of a unicorn and a fairy, and that he's in Unicorn Land most of the time?<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1037654" onclick="return highlight('1037654', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1037654">&gt;&gt;1037654</a><br />Judging by a look at the Filly website&#039;s 3 big types, and for the sake of another point of view, using another language translation in case there&#039;s differences (After all, it&#039;ll be translated from German either way), I can find some interesting stuff about the specials:<br /><br />Crystal seems to be from a faraway country too, and plays on the Cinderella effect by disappearing &quot;before midnight&quot;.

Okay, taking a look at Universal Trends' Filly selection (Should be at the link's front page), which is also in German, they declare that "Two brand-new Filly themes starts off the magical Filly Year in 2014 at Universal Trends".

The only things that could be considered newsworthy, is that Filly Wedding is written as "Filly Winter Wedding" here, and that the Filly Butterfly brand appears to be scheduled for a February release. And the implications that there will be more than just those two brands later this year.Okay, taking a look at <a rel="nofollow" class="externallink" href="http://www.universaltrends.de/shop/">Universal Trends</a> <span class="externallinkdomain">[www.universaltrends.de]</span>&#039; Filly selection (Should be at the link&#039;s front page), which is also in German, they declare that &quot;Two brand-new Filly themes starts off the magical Filly Year in 2014 at Universal Trends&quot;.<br /><br />The only things that could be considered newsworthy, is that Filly Wedding is written as &quot;Filly Winter Wedding&quot; here, and that the Filly Butterfly brand appears to be scheduled for a February release.

I took at look at his two comments about 1 1/2 hours ago, and I was about to write a step-by-step response to where he was wrong (including my perception that Tales and G3 has its fans, that I think that FF would appeal more to fans of girly shows in general than those who are only fans of FiM, and that not everything has to follow FiM's recipe), but I couldn't get over that he accused the site of using fake Blogger accounts, so he'd very likely disregard anything I'd have to say anyway.

I think Time Lord will like it when she see the Drawfilly.

Good luck going in. You'll be remembered as a brave soul who went the whole nine yards for his companions I can't imagine there'll be that much to discover apart from a few stores and minigames, but if you find anything interesting, that'd be great.

My system for finding new info, is to find new companies associated with an already-known Filly thing, and then look up the company on Google. I haven't found many such sources in the past week or so (in part due to the /oat/ thread lasting four days), so it could take some time before I find really good information again.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1040813" onclick="return highlight('1040813', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1040813">&gt;&gt;1040813</a><br />I took at look at his two comments about 1 1/2 hours ago, and I was about to write a step-by-step response to where he was wrong (including my perception that Tales and G3 has its fans, that I think that FF would appeal more to fans of girly shows in general than those who are only fans of FiM, and that not everything has to follow FiM&#039;s recipe), but I couldn&#039;t get over that he accused the site of using fake Blogger accounts, so he&#039;d very likely disregard anything I&#039;d have to say anyway.<br /><br />I think Time Lord will like it when she see the Drawfilly.<br /><br />Good luck going in. <strike>You&#039;ll be remembered as a brave soul who went the whole nine yards for his companions</strike> I can&#039;t imagine there&#039;ll be that much to discover apart from a few stores and minigames, but if you find anything interesting, that&#039;d be great.<br /><br />My system for finding new info, is to find new companies associated with an already-known Filly thing, and then look up the company on Google.

Something sounds very wrong with what I assume to be another user's Filly name. Or maybe "xxx" is just a placeholder or name-hiding like they have in anime? Or perhaps booze? When things can get strange, I can just as well assume it's something less strange.

Maybe they are referring to Magic with gender neutral pronouns. Like "it". "It" is using "it's" magical power. Magic in the german version of that site has gender neutral pronouns too, if you're interested.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1042859" onclick="return highlight('1042859', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1042859">&gt;&gt;1042859</a><br />Maybe they are referring to Magic with gender neutral pronouns.

Regarding something vaguely news: Regarding FillyRT, the last tweet of any kind I can see there was 12th of January. Is the bot broken after a Twitter interface change, or has there really been no tweets about Filly for ten days (last retweet was the 11th)?

I know that at least one of Suhosin's Filly tweets (>>1025125) aren't on RT, but if the bot isn't actually broken, that'd be a very bad sign.

>I wonder if we'll be told much about him in the first ep...
I think they'll merely explain his basic motives early on, and maybe save his backstory for a flashback or a focus episode. That's at least what such shows tend to do (Cedric the Wizard in Sofia the First, and practically every early villain in Naruto, from what I remember).

>Heehee, subtly advertising the castle playset there!

Ooh, now I understand. I thought semi-suppressed laughter was more "Phwee-hee-hee". And the internet couldn't provide an answer either, and in fact seemed to indicate it as a kind of annoyance.

So now that it's solved: Are you (or anypony else) tough enough to go to the girly-gala-guck? Or something? It's a Filly news drought right now.

On the topic of that, did you ever finish looking through the trailer for fillies to name? It'd be great if it got finished, and you'd be almost guaranteed coverage on Funtasia Daily and the next /oat/ thread.

I spent a large chunk of November and December crawling through the internet for new Filly information and sending it to Soth, to the point where I was at a specific point involved with six of the ten articles that was then on 'Daily's front page.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1054939" onclick="return highlight('1054939', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1054939">&gt;&gt;1054939</a><br />On the topic of that, did you ever finish looking through the trailer for fillies to name?

I personally think they should go all out in their traditional girliness. Make it their strength. Make the villains try to best the fillies in ballroom dancing or something. An episode entirely about Princess Sparkle throwing a huge and crazy tea party (since it was mentioned she likes parties). I'd like something like that. My favourite FiM episodes are where they do stuff like that. Like that fantastic episode in season one where Rarity sews dresses for everyone.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1054674" onclick="return highlight('1054674', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1054674">&gt;&gt;1054674</a><br />I personally think they should go all out in their traditional girliness.

If we're on the topic of background fillies, does anyone else like the Witchies' designs as much as I do? They also have by far the most interesting descriptions. Is anyone interested in me translating them?

My personal favourite is Morgan, the "Charmer of Hearts", who is more like a stage magician, whose speciality is fireworks and who is apparently good with kids. He is a family father, has a pink cape with hearts on it and fabulous hair. What a charming fellow.
The whole show could be about the Witchies and I would be very content with that.If we&#039;re on the topic of background fillies, does anyone else like the Witchies&#039; designs as much as I do?

Here's one family I especially like. I'm not translating literally, I'm summing up, and I'm being sort of loose with information, guessing some stuff that is implied.

The Water Witchies are one of the most mysterious and shy families of Zimsala.

Tarot is a loving single mom with three daughters who makes her living by telling fortunes and divination. She is also in possession of some rather old magic books that have spells most Fillies today don't know about.

Her three daughters, Vicky, Aqua and Hexie range from the affable to the troublesome.
Responsible sister Vicky tries to follow in the steps of her mom and studies Astrology, though she sucks at it and her predictions are often wrong in hilarious ways.

The bubbly Aqua is a (most likely self-appointed) "protector of frogs" who owns a pet frog. A hopeless romantic, she tries to get her personal prince by kissing every frog she sees. Her wish hasn't come to fruition yet.

Hexie is a troublesome teen with the ability to make it rain - she loves to use it to prank others, especially fellow Witchy Sabrina.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1057683" onclick="return highlight('1057683', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1057683">&gt;&gt;1057683</a><br />Here&#039;s one family I especially like.

I'm fond of girly shows too (Strawberry Shortcake BBA, for one), but going girly in a traditional way has doomed such shows in the public eye before. I also don't think Will would be a good match with girliness unless they're turning him somewhat feminine (like Spike) or the token guy who's friend with the girls (Terence from Disney Fairies). But a Princess Sparkle tea party gone crazy sounds tempting to me.

My favourite FiM episodes tend to involve comedy, silliness, and those who has had great performances in the Nordic dubs. The Show Stoppers has traditionally topped my list for those reasons.

I AM german. Also they are already doing that with Will. "I got the bow", remember?

This here is the dreamy Heart Family who is well versed in all matters of love.

Rhea, Morgan's wise wife, is the reference person when it comes to love matters. She has the uncanny ability to communicate with others through her thoughts alone - and that even at a great distance.

I already talked about Morgan. The couple has two daughters, one who is already a young adult and a child.

Alice (who has a fantastic design, look at her) seems to prefer the company of her pet cat to that of other Fillies and writes a novel about Zimsala and its history.

Alice's beloved younger sister Xenia is a very young Witchy who has received her magical cape a few weeks ago, meaning she is still trying to experiment with her magic, leading to quite a few misadventures.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1057764" onclick="return highlight('1057764', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1057764">&gt;&gt;1057764</a><br />I AM german.

I'd rather they mixed it up a bit, but if they are "girly" I hope they at least dodge some clichés. It's hopeful that Bella's dad seems protective and ready to take action rather than being another absent/useless adult in a kids' show. FIM even implied that Twilight and Shining's parents just watched the wedding events with Chrysalis...

Still, pretty confident I'll be watching even if the plots are too girly for my liking!

Oh, she's in a Funtasia pic I started but haven't finished! It's another horse-anatomy one* but I'm having trouble choosing an art style for the colour... I'm hoping it'll look good, though. It's a panel from one of the comics.

* My horse anatomy only started coming out remotely right recently, so I'm pretty into it right now, heh.

>>1057764

My impression was that girliness doomed itself with a lack of variety. There's nothing wrong with liking lighter things, but my experience with "girly" content is that it tend to have less fantasy (even if it's in a fantasy setting), predictable plots, less inspiring main characters, and can avoid even mild adventure in favour of friend group drama, which I've never been a fan of. These things aren't absent from cartoons that aren't girl-specific, but they rarely have them all in the same ep, and certainly not every ep (unless it's a dull cartoon).

There's no reason that even light plots based around everyday scenarios shouldn't be fun and interesting (e.g. Chi's Sweet Home is adorable), but series aimed at girls have tended to consistently miss the mark for me. Maybe "girly" series do tend to mix it up more than I've seen, but early impressions matter, and I don't think it's done anyone any favours for that type of series to supposedly be gender-specific rather than having its own gender-neutral genre.

You got to look at it this way:
Let's say some new cartoons are being funded.
Being funded are 100 cartoons aimed at boys and 20 cartoons aimed at girls.
Out of these 100 boy cartoons are tons that are cliché'd, unfunny, with bad animation and bad writing. So there are about 20 good cartoons from those 100 boy cartoons. These are the ones that are usually hyped and watched by lots of people, or praised. Thanks to that, the people who fund the shows get the impression that boy shows are more popular.
Now, getting to the girl shows, we have only twenty available. Instead there being lots of cartoons where some WILL be inevitably good, having very little cartoons limits the general possibility of there being several good cartoons. Out of the twenty, lets say we have 15 that are cliché'd, unfunny etc. Five cartoons that are at least decent or good. You will remember twenty boy cartoons being good and five girl cartoons, and you start to associate girliness with cliché'd writing. Because lets say you watch some of the boy cartoons, but you'd rather dig some girl cartoons. So you take what is available. In your quest to new girl cartoons you watch all twenty of the girl cartoons, even the bad ones. It's not like you can pick the cartoons you really like out of many. You have to take the ones that are there, regardless of how good they are.

Now, let us talk what a good cartoon is all about. A good cartoon has good writing, it has love and thought put into it. Now regardless of your source material or your audience, with the right execution everything could be awesome. Using the example of the tea party, Princess Sparkle's tea party could be incredibly dull if not executed right. Shonen battles are usually long and drawn out and boring. But the tea party could also be fun, with lots of crazy and different guests and party games and colours and floating seats. The shonen battle could have interesting strategies or is just animated in an interesting way or it would get resolved in a comedic way. Another example of this is a recent anime called "Girls und Panzer". The premise is cute moe girls fighting against each other in tanks. Believe me or not, it's a fantastic show that uses actual battle strategy. The same show could have been just scantily clad girls doing weird fanservice poses on their tanks. Instead, the studio poured all their love into that show.

So basically, what I'm saying is that with the right execution, anything could be great. And doing traditionally girly, or just generally girly things with that thought in mind, it could be fantastic. Friend drama or avoiding adventure in a show where adventure is a premise is not good writing. The characters wearing fluffy frilly flower dresses is not related to that.

I apologize if I typed weird somewhere, it is rather late.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1057958" onclick="return highlight('1057958', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1057958">&gt;&gt;1057958</a><br />You got to look at it this way:<br />Let&#039;s say some new cartoons are being funded.<br />Being funded are 100 cartoons aimed at boys and 20 cartoons aimed at girls.<br />Out of these 100 boy cartoons are tons that are cliché&#039;d, unfunny, with bad animation and bad writing.

>more cartoons aimed at boys
>statistically better chance that they get good cartoons
Definitely agree that this is part of the problem. Also that certain genres (e.g. adventure) are very rarely aimed at girls.

>So basically, what I'm saying is that with the right execution, anything could be great.

I wasn't trying to dispute that.

Speaking of cartoon gripes, one thing that's bothered me ever since I was a kid is the obsession with humans/humanoids in stories. Even wild fantasy/sci-fi stories apparently need a human/oid protagonist! And when non-humanoid animals do star, it's nearly always in a pseudo-real-life world (i.e. Earth with talking animals), humans will be there, death is likely, and guilt-tripping elements will be throughout (e.g. pollution, hunters, death by car), so. Little-me couldn't just watch a fantasy epic starring non-humanoids like she wanted to: She had to either watch humanoids or be reminded that animals die and people control/kill animals. The defence that "that's life" carries little weight when none of the humanoid characters ever got killed by a car, developed cancer, etc.

Finally, I'm an adult and there will soon be not one but TWO current animated series starring non-humanoid horses in magical fantasy worlds without a human in sight! (If Funtasia does have humans then it's at least clear that the Fillies aren't pets.)

I'm chuffed.

Still nothing like that with the level of "travelling the land to fight evil" stuff that I've always been drawn to, but horses having tea parties is automatically a billion times better than badly written stories of humans travelling the land to fight evil.

Funtasia would have to be really, really, bad to stop me watching it. Also, I managed the first season of How To Train Your Dragon (which was surprisingly poor) for just the music, happy film memories, and Toothless' croons, and HTTYD S2 has been shockingly better in every way, so even if Funtasia's S1 is really dreadful, I'll probably still try S2.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1058196" onclick="return highlight('1058196', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1058196">&gt;&gt;1058196</a><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;more cartoons aimed at boys</span><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;statistically better chance that they get good cartoons</span><br />Definitely agree that this is part of the problem.

Thankfully, the cartoon business has changed a lot since the early 90's (I presume that's when you grew up). MLP G1 had humans, Moomin was probably humanoid, MLP Tales was humanoid in all but design, and Wind in the Willows wasn't fantasy enough from what little I remember.

In fact, if "non-humanoid no-human fantasy story" is the only benchmark, even MLP G3 could count as an early pioneer. I also recall pseudo-examples like Zig & Sharko (no humans, but several mermaids in secondary roles and a Spongebob-like world) and several Lego-related shows of varying quality. And now we have FiM and Filly.

>Funtasia would have to be really, really, bad to stop me watching it.

I've got many pet peeves when TV and movies are involved, but as long as Funtasia doesn't rampantly go against its toy sources by portraying the youngest Fillys as infants on a regular basis, it simply can't fail for me.

>Also that certain genres (e.g. adventure) are very rarely aimed at girls.

I also don't see any premises based on martial arts or high-tech inventions aimed at girls either, which could have provided a fresh breath too.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1058438" onclick="return highlight('1058438', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1058438">&gt;&gt;1058438</a><br />Thankfully, the cartoon business has changed a lot since the early 90&#039;s (I presume that&#039;s when you grew up).

Late 80s/early 90s. I miss the crazy sci-fi of the 80s but I know that many of them just weren't very well made. Also, they were forced into spelling out clear morals at one point, which made even some of the good ones gain a patronising edge.

>MLP G1 had humans, Moomin was probably humanoid, MLP Tales was humanoid in all but design, and Wind in the Willows wasn't fantasy enough from what little I remember.

Ha, I always think of the Moomin stories as books... Its animated series were comparatively forgettable to me. WitW has one bizarre fantasy moment in the book but that's often left out and its characters are bipedal anyway.

Speaking of books, Watership Down is a book I should have sought out sooner but was put off by the film. Despite having humans in the world it's very much a fantasy epic starring rabbits making it more of a "hidden fantasy world" setting (as seen in Harry Potter, Weirdstone of Brisingamen, etc) but without the normal "human discovers it" premise. This was, however, rather played down by the film, which went so far as to add in a female rabbit JUST for her to be killed in one of the early scenes. I'm still think that, to be fair, The Hobbit films should have added in a female dwarf to get eaten by a giant eagle before the end of first film, but I digress. My key point is that it seems to be that, especially in TV/film, stories aren't valued unless they're either starring human/oids or starring animals and teaching "real life is hard for animals D:" messages.

>In fact, if "non-humanoid no-human fantasy story" is the only benchmark, even MLP G3 could count as an early pioneer.

Indeed! I mean, Santa was shown as human but he never actually appeared. I didn't watch G3 until relatively recently though...

>I also recall pseudo-examples like Zig & Sharko

[Googles] See, they looks quite humanoid to me. Standing on two legs and using their forelimbs to manipulate objects, with added thumbs. I don't know why this is my criteria, but animals having to rely on non-hands really appeals to me. Scooping things up with hooves isn't so bad, but sticking to means that match their biology (e.g. picking things up with their mouths) appeals to me a lot more.

>several Lego-related shows of varying quality.

?

>as long as Funtasia doesn't rampantly go against its toy sources by portraying the youngest Fillys as infants on a regular basis

That's still something that a good S2 could fix! Sometimes shows go backwards (e.g. Ewoks S2 was far more kiddy) but in recent years I've found later series are often better,

>>Also that certain genres (e.g. adventure) are very rarely aimed at girls.

Aye! Still, we have the learning-to-kick scene in the Funtasia trailer, maybe martial arts is a thing at the school, or at least as some of the Fillies' hobbies. That or it'll be more of a one-off gag, like Apple Bloom's karate interest, but ah well.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1059596" onclick="return highlight('1059596', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1059596">&gt;&gt;1059596</a><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;Thankfully, the cartoon business has changed a lot since the early 90&#039;s (I presume that&#039;s when you grew up).</span><br />Late 80s/early 90s.

I was thinking along the lines of Bionicle, Legends of Chima, and Hero Factory, which seem to have characters as some mix of humanoid and unnaturally-looking creatures, and especially Bionicle kept such stick to the "no humans" policy that they abandoned a cinema movie for it because all the scripts they got involved humans. They additionally had special magic-ish skills on occasions.

>That's still something that a good S2 could fix!

The closest thing I've seen to an "S2 fix" myself was Strawberry Shortcake BBA, which greatly toned down the stilted dialogue and had a continuous narrative spanning several weather seasons (But with that show, I would combine it with "S3 brilliance"). I'll keep it in mind, and if that system works for more shows, I could possibly check out Care Bears WtCAL S2 if it got one.

>I mean, Santa was shown as human but he never actually appeared. I didn't watch G3 until relatively recently though...

I started in December 2011 and spent a year and a half slowly going through it. They had Santa figurines in G3-Ponyville's toy store, if that is of any importance.

>My key point is that it seems to be that, especially in TV/film, stories aren't valued unless they're either starring human/oids or starring animals and teaching "real life is hard for animals D:" messages.

I realise now that I don't have much experience with the last category. There's possibly Bolt and Kung Fu Panda, but those would probably be counted as humanoid too (KFP had a full handful of characters standing on two limbs as the only humanoid things I can remember, though).

>Aye! Still, we have the learning-to-kick scene in the Funtasia trailer, maybe martial arts is a thing at the school, or at least as some of the Fillies' hobbies.

Sorry, it's a fun topic and I don't often find other long term cartoon fans to chat to!

>I was thinking along the lines of Bionicle, Legends of Chima, and Hero Factory, which seem to have characters as some mix of humanoid and unnaturally-looking creatures

Really? Never caught them browsing channels and what I did see didn't encourage me to seek them out, but clearly I must look into them!
>Bionicle kept such stick to the "no humans" policy that they abandoned a cinema movie for it because all the scripts they got involved humans.
That's brilliant. It's nice when shows stick to their values.
>They additionally had special magic-ish skills on occasions.
Neat.

I like to think that it's because it's easier for shows to get feedback now (e.g. obvious fanart online), so if fans see potential then the makers are more likely to hear about it. In the case of HTTYD, I have no idea why the creators didn't invest more in film extras from the start (even the original merch was pretty poor), but at least they've pulled it together now.

>>teaching "real life is hard for animals D:" messages.

>I realise now that I don't have much experience with the last category.
The infamous Animals of Farthing Wood is one that stands out in my mind. They're forced out of their home by habitat destruction and, on their way to their new home, suffer many losses, e.g. hedgehogs on the road. Some gore was included, e.g. when the baby mice were killed by the shrike, AKA butcher bird, the thorn bush with impaled baby mice on it is shown. Yes, that's life, but it's not escapism and it gave me fairly mixed feelings about the show.

Other "life in the human world is hard for non-humans" stories include Bambi, 101 Dalmatians, Aristocats, and Lady and the Tramp. Generally the Disney ones have less guilt tripping though, so these are all films I like. Bolt counts, and Homeward Bound. Black Beauty. Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin and its sequel for one that practically forgot humans as it went on, haha... Legend of the Guardians. The Silverwing book series. There are quite a few, and generally I DO like them (animal fan, haha), but humans are nearly always included in the key problem/s and it gets a little repetitive.

I&#039;ll keep it in mind, and if that system works for more shows, I could possibly check out Care Bears WtCAL S2 if it got one.</span><br />I like to think that it&#039;s because it&#039;s easier for shows to get feedback now (e.g. obvious fanart online), so if fans see potential then the makers are more likely to hear about it.

They&#039;re forced out of their home by habitat destruction and, on their way to their new home, suffer many losses, e.g. hedgehogs on the road. Some gore was included, e.g. when the baby mice were killed by the shrike, AKA butcher bird, the thorn bush with impaled baby mice on it is shown. Yes, that&#039;s life, but it&#039;s not escapism and it gave me fairly mixed feelings about the show.<br /><br />Other &quot;life in the human world is hard for non-humans&quot; stories include Bambi, 101 Dalmatians, Aristocats, and Lady and the Tramp. Generally the Disney ones have less guilt tripping though, so these are all films I like. Bolt counts, and Homeward Bound. Black Beauty. Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin and its sequel for one that practically forgot humans as it went on, haha... Legend of the Guardians. The Silverwing book series. There are quite a few, and generally I DO like them (animal fan, haha), but humans are nearly always included in the key problem/s and it gets a little repetitive.<br /><br />Lion King may be humans-don&#039;t-exist tier. It&#039;s ambiguous.<br />

>Sorry, it's a fun topic and I don't often find other long term cartoon fans to chat to!
I think I know that feel too. Though I like a wide range of cartoons, it's usually cartoons that never really built up an internet presence, such as Black Dynamite, Fish Hooks, and at least three Disney Junior shows, in addition to Shortcake, Funtasia and various MLP's; so I've had a hard time finding posters to discuss such things with on /oat/ and /int/. Positively Pinkie was the closest I got in some of these cases, but even he consider me a cartoon-loving guy for a reason.

>Really? Never caught them browsing channels and what I did see didn't encourage me to seek them out, but clearly I must look into them!

Bionicle was primarily a DVD thing some years ago (which I completely failed to find out even existed in media form), but at least Chima began airing on the Nordic Nickelodeons some months ago. I didn't really like the modern-CN-esque type of action Chima and Hero seemed to use, but since I've as such watched very little of them, I may be wrong on their overall quality level.

>In the case of HTTYD, I have no idea why the creators didn't invest more in film extras from the start

I think that nopony could predict how popular the HTTYD movie would get, including Dreamworks. They probably expected a typical Dreamworks situation where it perfoms great in the cinemas and home releases and not much else, and thus only made basic merch. Instead, action-loving children and Pixar-favourising film feinschmeckers (Is that a legal loanword in English? It is so up here, at least.) praised it to the skies and beyond, so the movie remained popular with people after they were finished watching the movie.

>Generally the Disney ones have less guilt tripping though, so these are all films I like.

I watched Aristocats a lot when I was young, and Bolt gets much less love from people than I think it deserves.

>I think I know that feel too. Though I like a wide range of cartoons, it's usually cartoons that never really built up an internet presence
Many of the cartoons I like are popular, but whether I can find a good place to discuss them is another thing. The casual community and no-password needed style of image boards appeals to me but, unless I'm missing something, most cartoons don't have a board. DeviantArt's an option but not all artists are chatty (though some are, and that's awesome).

"Kid bonds with and eventually rides a dragon as a story of self-discover and saving the day in an awesome way" is a film I've been waiting for ever since I was a little kid. Mostly I imagined the human as female but, in terms of the atmosphere and themes, HTTYD was pretty much exactly the type of thing I wanted and I loved it all over! I hear it's not much like the book it's based on but I do have that to read... Looking forward to it! The Pern stories were always too "females are so dark and edgy" for me.

Dragons are popular and Vikings are culty, they should have seen the love coming! Heehee... I'm trying not to get too hyped for the new film but it's so hard and I've only seen one trailer and some posters!

Aye, Bolt was good!

I really believe that more cartoons should adopt the "dedicated imageboard" system that Ponychan have. A good Dynamitechan would have won me over years ago, and I can also imagine a Regularchan and a Danvillechan.

>I hear it's not much like the book it's based on but I do have that to read... Looking forward to it!

I read the first chapter of the book, and I can tell that it's completely different from the movie. Hiccup is different, the village's dragon system is unrecognisable, everyone's motivations are different, even the artwork is different.

>It's fun to chat about even if we have different views!

Maybe I should spend a while today checking out at least Chima in more detail myself? I think one of my little brothers bought DVD's of Chima and Hero last year, at least he does have a Hero DVD.

>Heehee... I'm trying not to get too hyped for the new film but it's so hard and I've only seen one trailer and some posters!

I began to regard Dreamworks sequels with hostility after watching Shrek Forever After and Madagascar 2 some years ago, so I admit to not having high hopes for HTTYD2. And so I haven't watched its trailer, so I can't really tell if I think this is going to be good or not.

>Besides, "pet misses owner" and "owner misses pet" are super effective against my feels, so it was easy for me to get invested.

I loved Bolt for completely different reasons. The soundtrack, the chemistry between the three main characters, the insight in the dubious American telly business, the colossal action sequences, various comedic things happening, and a tiny bit of drama that actually worked for me.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1063255" onclick="return highlight('1063255', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1063255">&gt;&gt;1063255</a><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;but, unless I&#039;m missing something, most cartoons don&#039;t have a board.</span><br />I really believe that more cartoons should adopt the &quot;dedicated imageboard&quot; system that Ponychan have.

Now I know what the "fan club" mentioned in >>1025125 and >>1025169 was partially about, as a message on the Filly site (when set to German) mentioned gift cards, vouchers and exclusive toy(s).

So would I. But do we actually even know whether there's any new material they're bringing to the telly conventions? I don't think they've mentioned such, apart from "screening" their shows. Who knows?

I notice that the extra 46 seconds of the extended trailer is by itself on http://www.worldscreen.com/ (I'd link but the url gets long and the search is easy) under the title of NATPE Miami 2014 - Jan 27th, 2014 through Jan 29th, 2014, so... Could that have been it? Bit of a disappointment if so...

Still, if so, it could be taken 2 ways:
(1) BRB haven't realised that this has plenty of potential and so they haven't prioritised it.
(2) BRB do realise it has potential and so they don't want to give out too much before it's ready.

Shame BRB International don't update the news section of their site more.

I can't find that on Worldscreen to be honest, but I remember that those 46 seconds were first found on their sub-site Worldscreenings in late November last year. Is is that one you're talking about?

>Still, if so, it could be taken 2 ways:

It could go either way. I believe they have Funtasia as a top priority, but I doubt they expect it to become anywhere near a grand hit at par with the most popular US cartoons of today.

>better than best cartoon

>Whoa, whoa, let's not get ahead of ourselves!
That was something I didn't expect to hear from you, actually. I assume it's the 80's Thundercats you're loving? Were there by the way any differences between that and the CN reboot a few years ago?

>I'm looking forward to it!

Why do you think that? I'm not saying you're wrong, but Invizimals is the one at the start of their reel, and listed first in a few articles about their upcoming projects... Might be the article writers' biases, of course.

>I assume it's the 80's Thundercats you're loving?

Aye! I think its early moments pretty much defined most of what I now like in cartoons.

>Were there by the way any differences between that and the CN reboot a few years ago?

Lots. They kind of stripped a lot of what made the original special and put it into a cliché "on a quest" formula... There were hints that it was set in the future of the original cartoon, but still. In the original, it was about the team getting settled on a new world, and Lion-O was the young Lord of the Thundercats whose body had grown to be adult whilst he was unconscious (for space travel), and so one of the core themes was him learning to be the adult he already was. In the reboot, he's kind of a whiny kid with brother issues... It wasn't terrible, just a rather generic "get a team: go on quest" setting, plus the third and fourth stories had morals that quite contradicted each other ("know when to retreat" and "never retreat, even when the odds are dire"). I didn't bother keeping up to date after that and, while I'll probably watch the rest at some point, I'm not expecting much other than maybe some cool locations.

I knew it wasn't going to be my Thundercats, but I wish they hadn't let it get generic. The original actually had a lot of unique elements to go with its classic 80s cheese and clichés.

>>I'm looking forward to it!

>If you've got a good library system in the UK, you could always borrow it for some weeks.

>I take it that reviews don't normally come out of events like that?
Had it been a triple-A video game blockbuster, then it'd be probable. For a semi-indie European-conceived cartoon that virtually nopony had heard of at the time the September article was written, it wouldn't be given much focus by reviewers.

>Why do you think that?

As even though Invizimals was much closer to release (Having debuted two pilot specials in a few countries already) and are more likely to profit, they still take care to mention Funtasia as an upcoming show even in articles where it isn't in the focus. I think that would make it roughly considered on level with Inviz'.

>[the entire Thundercats paragraph]

Okay, it's obvious that you know a whole lot more about Thundercats than I'll ever manage to do. Maybe I'm even ineligible to compare Chima to it?

>I do actually have the book as of Christmas, I just want to finish reading my current book first, which is taking a while

I tend to have a very hard time reading through text-only books. I got one proper novel for X-mas and haven't even reached the page-25 mark in it yet.

I laughed at exactly two jokes in the whole video (The one where Madeleine demands people to kneel before her, and the "Collect them all!" yells). The Disney song I can't remember where it came from, was a nice touch too. But pretty much all of his jokes in the trailer riff fell about as flat to me as a Danish grass plain:

>"A big strange meanie broke into school"

>"With yellow eyes!"
>A brony!

Though this looked more to me like a one-toy review than anything meant to really involve the trailer, I have mixed but reluctant feelings from it.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1075531" onclick="return highlight('1075531', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1075531">&gt;&gt;1075531</a><br />I laughed at exactly two jokes in the whole video (The one where Madeleine demands people to kneel before her, and the &quot;Collect them all!&quot; yells).

You could be right, I have got a Lion-O vibe from the design of "Laval"... Still, I will get around to Chima sometime. In between staying on top of other series I watch and doing things other than watching cartoons, it can take me a while to try new stuff.

Been there, especially in recent years, but I still intend to finish the 3 books I've started... All quite long, wordy, ones though (philosophy, a quartet, and Great Expectations).

Okay, reading into it, it seems too girly (+too much super-special human) for me. Stars a girl as a fairy, some other fairies, a faun-thing, and Onchao, the white "unicorn" (with wings), who is actually male. If anyone tries it, let me know how it is! Feel a little betrayed by the trailer that other sources imply the equines who aren't Onchao don't play a large part.

He had a rather high percentage of brony jokes, but even within the trailer riff, he had some other vaguely-jokes, like "Hey, Pony Edward."

>>1075924

It took me a long while before I figured out what had changed in BRB's description (in the Roundup). Magic resulting in "unexpected results" sounds a bit like Fairly Odd Parents, especially if there'll be episodes revolving around fixing spells gone wrong.

>>1075959

I have some experience with Mia And Me, but I had no idea how to talk about it due to all the vital things in the show for which I didn't know their English names, due to only having watched the Norwegian dub. The very important trumpet that dissolves the bad woman's henchmen: Based on the "trompetuss" that I'm familiar with, would it be a trumpetore, bassooneer, trumpateer, anything close to that? All this is why I have almost never talked about Mia And Me on Ponychan.

The first time I saw the show, which was halfway through an action-filled episode, my reactions can be summarised with this. But as I watched more episodes, the human subplot got more frustrating, and the many repeating elements such as the trumpateer(?), saving the unicorns and the water that shrinks the henchmen, got tiresome, and I threw in the towel with somewhere between 6 and 10 episodes watched.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1075877" onclick="return highlight('1075877', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1075877">&gt;&gt;1075877</a><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;He seems a bit too intent on mentioning Bronies.

Ah, so that's how things are. Okay, so the main story goes as following: A girl student goes to an exclusive school in Italy or England, and receives enemies (bullies) right off the bat. She comes across a quite magical book, and gets sent to Zentopia, as a fairy. She comes across a conflict between the good fairies and an evil witch-thing, involving land domination and something involving the unicorns. The fight takes some turns throughout the show and involves strategic missions to save the day. In almost every episode, she returns back to the human world when she's been in Zentopia for too long, something that is played on occasionally.

I'm not sure what to think of the show's qualities or problems, really. I simply can't come up with any.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1075987" onclick="return highlight('1075987', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1075987">&gt;&gt;1075987</a><br /><a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1076039" onclick="return highlight('1076039', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1076039">&gt;&gt;1076039</a><br />Ah, so that&#039;s how things are.

Today's not-news news:

FillyRT has been fixed after three weeks of inactivity, which makes it a viable strategy for small-scale news again. I had given up on it after two of those three weeks, but it's back in my browser Favourites section now. The bot creator mentions that Twitter now "require SSL by default", which broke it.

And there's finally one new Filly pic on DA. The keyword here being 'one'.

(I was planning to write something about BRBPlay too as I speculate it'll be an online venue for watching Funtasia, but I couldn't even figure out if their Premium service was free or not, and there didn't appear to any Filly there so far.)Today&#039;s not-news news:<br /><br />FillyRT has been fixed after three weeks of inactivity, which makes it a viable strategy for small-scale news again.

For the sake of journalism, I decided to investigate BRBPlay Premium a bit.

They use a service called adnstream, http://www.adnstream.com/

Prices for BRBPlay Premium are 2.39 €/1 month, 3.99 €/3 months, 6.99 €/6 months.

Adnstream seems like it's only available in Spanish, but it looks like BRB have episodes of their series in English there. Most (or all?) of their series seem to be there, but some of the free episodes give me the message in pic related which is somewhat concerning.

I should probably go to bed soon.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1084099" onclick="return highlight('1084099', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1084099">&gt;&gt;1084099</a><br />For the sake of journalism, I decided to investigate BRBPlay Premium a bit. <br /><br />They use a service called adnstream, <a rel="nofollow" class="externallink" href="http://www.adnstream.com/">http://www.adnstream.com/</a><br /><br />Prices for BRBPlay Premium are 2.39 €/1 month, 3.99 €/3 months, 6.99 €/6 months.<br /><br />Adnstream seems like it&#039;s only available in Spanish, but it looks like BRB have episodes of their series in English there.

That alone removes a lot of the service's viability in my eyes, as I originally thought that BRB had worldwide rights to their own shows.

They also appeared to lack their other new show Invizimals there (and almost all of their movies for that sake), but I'm not sure if the selection I looked through really was Premium or merely a test selection.

€7 for six months would be pretty feasible for me if it actually gets Funtasia as part of the worldwide release, presuming that it actually can be streamed around the world.

How has EqD handled leaks of this level before? So that we have something to compare to?

I will fix and colour them too when I find some time, so you'll have more versions soon.

They key is a soft violet and doesn't seem too small, so it'll probably open a door, but not one where you'd need a rougher one, like prison or somewhere outside. At the same time, it doesn't seem to be a very complicated key. Perhaps to a forbidden room they otherwise can't access? Or some kind of big magical box. I'm asking myself more how they'll open a door with a key with those hooves.

Anyone wanna speculate why the bat wears a hero badge necklace?

Also, do you think they'll have Ced as the guy who doesn't want to be a prince or will they go against the descriptions and have him be a spoiled princeling?<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1121312" onclick="return highlight('1121312', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1121312">&gt;&gt;1121312</a><br />I will fix and colour them too when I find some time, so you&#039;ll have more versions soon.<br /><br />They key is a soft violet and doesn&#039;t seem too small, so it&#039;ll probably open a door, but not one where you&#039;d need a rougher one, like prison or somewhere outside.

>I will fix and colour them too when I find some time, so you'll have more versions soon.
Sounds good. I was for some minutes pondering if I should colour them myself, but I decided against it.

The key looks like it could be practically anything. The castle's front doors, a diary, a "the keys to the city" kind of key, or a toy/treasure chest. And now I'm wondering how they'll pick up things at all, as neither their hooves or teeths seems fit for the job. Maybe every Filly has levitating powers like those that Will had?

>Anyone wanna speculate why the bat wears a hero badge necklace?

I doubt it's a hero badge, and if it is, that'd be for some old stuff he did. My guess is more at a magic amulet that has something to do with the mirror Wizard, possibly to exert the Wizard's old magical powers.

>Also, do you think they'll have Ced as the guy who doesn't want to be a prince or will they go against the descriptions and have him be a spoiled princeling?

He'll probably be enjoying the royal privileges, but they have no reason to play him as a token Prince Uncharming as was done with Blueblood. If anything, he'll want some breaks from the stiff royal life, but I don't think he'll want to abandon it.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1121348" onclick="return highlight('1121348', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1121348">&gt;&gt;1121348</a><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;I will fix and colour them too when I find some time, so you&#039;ll have more versions soon.</span><br />Sounds good.

That sounds interesting, since the Wizard seems to be unable to move, maybe he transfers magic to his sidekick so he'll use it at certain points? If so, that would be a really interesting dependence system.

If the villains are what I think they are, then I reeeally dig them. We have this powerful prideful guy who got cursed into that mirror and lost most of his power through that, and who probably can't move as well. He is entirely dependant on a bumbling bat, who is also probably the only person he can communicate with on a daily basis. It's such a situation ripe for comedy, I can't wait. So they'll going to have to steal magic to break his curse or bring back his powers. They could even throw some tension in there for the magic stealing to be relevant to keeping him alive. Anyways, Battiwigs is either insanely loyal or he was promised something in return for helping out, because him and the Wizard seem to have a rocky relationship with verbal abuse involved, and I can't imagine he would help him out just because he's bored.
Also, do you think Cupcakes will be the first episode or will it have a different introduction?

I've been noticing a thing about us Funtasians (I assume that's still the fandom name) recently, which is that throughout four months of fandom-y stuff going on, there have been no Filly OC's on record, at the very least I have never seen a single one of them. Should somepony perhaps set a breakthrough precedent, or is it wildly lucky and preferrable that there aren't any?

>>1124527

>Also, do you think Cupcakes will be the first episode or will it have a different introduction?
It's got to be the first one. We did see a zoom-in on the castle in the first trailer, just like the zoom from far out in the second. I also saw an article at NewToyBrands three days ago that mentions Rose arriving for her first day at the Academy, which seems pretty fitting with the second trailer, though I didn't include it in my most recent news report to Soth because it paled in comparison to the 'Q4 release' article.

I find myself agreeing with your ideas for Battiwigs and the Wizard, but my current thoughts of Battiwigs' motivations is that he may not be able to take a lot of jobs or do a lot of stuff (assuming that bats aren't highly respected by the Fillys), so that he'll do whatever work offers he can get, or that the Wizard has convinced Battiwigs that his plan is meant for good (for example the magic stealing allegedly being to create harmony), akin to what Megatron did to other Transformers throughout most of TF Prime. I don't really find either of my theories likely unless Black Dragon/Screen 21/whoever else the show producers are, wants to go a bit dark with the show, but with an audience officially maxing out at age 12, who knows?
I&#039;ve been noticing a thing about us Funtasians (I assume that&#039;s still the fandom name) recently, which is that throughout four months of fandom-y stuff going on, there have been <i>no Filly OC&#039;s on record</i>, at the very least I have never seen a single one of them. Should somepony perhaps set a breakthrough precedent, or is it wildly lucky and preferrable that there aren&#039;t any?<br /><br /><a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1124527" onclick="return highlight('1124527', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1124527">&gt;&gt;1124527</a><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;Also, do you think Cupcakes will be the first episode or will it have a different introduction?</span><br />It&#039;s got to be the first one.

This is going to get strange once it picks up after the few minutes of site downtime. I hope I remember to check the thread often before it 404's.

My Google search for new Filly stuff today proved for nought, except that there's a German Wikipedia page for the Filly franchise.

Okay, so with this artpiece, we see Rose, Will and Lynn at a centre position, Cedric and Bella standing together and looking from the sideline, Princess Sparkle standing at a ceremonial balcony, and Battiwigs looking from above in a diagonal angle.

I can devise several options from this:
1) It's a late-in-the-season scene where the three Fillys are praised for something that we know absolutely nothing about.
2) It's a celebration for driving the premiere "monster" away. This is either after the truth is discovered, or a mid-episode scene where the three are believed to have saved the day already.
3) It's a party to celebrate the new students at the Academy. Sort of like the end to Police Academy I, but with no real training and probably (but not guaranteedly) without having to prove their skills in action. And probably without thanking the King of Norway too.
4) It's an off-road run, like a marathon or the Running of the Leaves. In this case, the colourful stripes ahead of the three are a start and/or finish line band.

I'd be mightily surprised if this is part of the first episode (or the pilot arc), even with option 3 sounding like it has a good chance inside my head.

Edit: >>1148000
I spotted the article about 45 minutes ago, so I took the cues to this post from it.

Also, as another detail I forgot to add to this post: Even though Cedric and Bella stand right next to each other, it would seem a bit early if anypony wants to use the shipping arrows on them, though bronies have used them for less than this. I am after all very conservative when it comes to shipping.Okay, so with this artpiece, we see Rose, Will and Lynn at a centre position, Cedric and Bella standing together and looking from the sideline, Princess Sparkle standing at a ceremonial balcony, and Battiwigs looking from above in a diagonal angle.<br /><br />I can devise several options from this:<br />1) It&#039;s a late-in-the-season scene where the three Fillys are praised for something that we know absolutely nothing about.<br />2) It&#039;s a celebration for driving the premiere &quot;monster&quot; away.

And if anypony are still here, I also took a look at the Filly mirror site I saw a link to on the 'Daily.

There are some new front page banners there, both to new toy lines and the "Fun" category games (not much more than that), which makes me wonder if they're all-new site additions from right before or even in the middle of the mainsite downtime, or if they're old stuff that the mirror creation process(?) picked up on. The site music is also different.

But whatever the answer, I think this is some good mirror crafting, to the point where I've been found myself wondering if it's an official replacement URL.And if anypony are still here, I also took a look at the <a rel="nofollow" class="externallink" href="http://www.myfilly.com/">Filly mirror site</a> <span class="externallinkdomain">[www.myfilly.com]</span> I saw a link to on the &#039;Daily.<br /><br />There are some new front page banners there, both to new toy lines and the &quot;Fun&quot; category games (not much more than that), which makes me wonder if they&#039;re all-new site additions from right before or even in the middle of the mainsite downtime, or if they&#039;re old stuff that the mirror creation process(?) picked up on.

By the way, I am still keeping an eye on this thread (and checking Funtasia Daily daily), just been pretty busy lately and don't have much Fantasia-y to add.

The possible long wait sucks, makes me wonder if they're timing it around something else, e.g. another BRB Internacional program.

Filly have sold out in shops around me, but I got a set of four (Caspian, Twilight, Willow, and Faye) because hype is fun. Need to dig up the filly (Cedric?) I already had, too... Not sure why my Toys R Us hasn't restocked them, though. They seemed to sell at a decent rate and were never on offer that I saw.

...Hopefully, if it is a long wait, they'll release a bunch of new clips and so on to get us back in the mood before the series starts!

>>1148019

"Starting at the academy" does sound likely, though I wouldn't rule out that it might be a celebration for them saving the day. Maybe a mix of both (e.g. if the school's temporarily closed whilst they sort stuff out)? Hard to say when we know so little about how the monster story will actually turn out.By the way, I am still keeping an eye on this thread (and checking Funtasia Daily daily), just been pretty busy lately and don&#039;t have much Fantasia-y to add.<br /><br />The possible long wait sucks, makes me wonder if they&#039;re timing it around something else, e.g. another BRB Internacional program.<br /><br />Filly have sold out in shops around me, but I got a set of four (Caspian, Twilight, Willow, and Faye) because hype is fun.

Indeed. With the whole FF thing presumably cooling down over the next months, they would really need a content defibrillator to re-awaken it when the premiere is approaching.

>By the way, I am still keeping an eye on this thread (and checking Funtasia Daily daily), just been pretty busy lately

Sounds good.

>but I got a set of four (Caspian, Twilight, Willow, and Faye) because hype is fun.

>Not sure why my Toys R Us hasn't restocked them, though.
I took a look through a medium-sized toy store in late November (as my Toys 'R' Us didn't have much of a Filly selection), and found that the four-Filly sets had abnormally small figures, as in smaller than a FiM blindbag. I also couldn't find any sets with Will or Bella.

>makes me wonder if they're timing it around something else, e.g. another BRB Internacional program.

Apart from Invizimals, I recall Dracco having plans for a zombie franchise (Could it be Zombie City?). But juggling multiple balls in the air ought to be feasible for all the companies involved in this.

I meant that they wouldn't want it to be overshadowed by something. Maybe 2014's fourth quarter looks like it doesn't have many other programs aimed at young girls airing at the time? Or, because it's a toy-based show, maybe they want it to be fresh and new at Christmas?

Lots of good shows have been cancelled because they got a bad time slot (e.g. up against something more popular), or didn't sell enough toys.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1151720" onclick="return highlight('1151720', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1151720">&gt;&gt;1151720</a><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;But juggling multiple balls in the air ought to be feasible for all the companies involved in this.</span><br />I meant that they wouldn&#039;t want it to be overshadowed by something.

While I don't think there's any shows that could overshadow it most of the year, I also don't really keep track of release dates for other shows unless it's Black Dynamite or Sheriff Callie's Wild West.

>Lots of good shows have been cancelled because they got a bad time slot (e.g. up against something more popular)

Maybe they do in the US, but that is however where all the cartoons are focusing their efforts. A show in Norway has to be outrageously poorly performing before getting cancelled, and the amount of S1 cancellations on the national NRK in the past five years that I know of, is only one.

>or didn't sell enough toys.

I remember a major part of Funtasia's demographic being those who grew up with the toys, who are by now at least 10 and are unlikely to buy horse toys just like that. So I think they can allow themselves some leeway on the toy sale focus.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1151859" onclick="return highlight('1151859', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1151859">&gt;&gt;1151859</a><br />While I don&#039;t think there&#039;s any shows that could overshadow it most of the year, I also don&#039;t really keep track of release dates for other shows unless it&#039;s Black Dynamite or Sheriff Callie&#039;s Wild West.<br /><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;Lots of good shows have been cancelled because they got a bad time slot (e.g. up against something more popular)</span><br />Maybe they do in the US, but that is however where all the cartoons are focusing their efforts.

Oh, of course it'll air in the US too. I don't think there's any confirmations of it, but it's made with an American crew after all. What my argument was about, was that while the US has a tendency to cancel shows for being maybe 0.02 points too low, that all cartoons were aiming at the US market and could end up being subject to their cancelling tendencies. I'm not always good at explaining arguments.

If a show releases clips more than six months on forehand, it usually indicates an early pilot or an otherwise very early first episode. But since FF already has a full 26-episode Series 1 confirmed, that'd be unlikely at best with this.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1152291" onclick="return highlight('1152291', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1152291">&gt;&gt;1152291</a><br />Oh, of course it&#039;ll air in the US too.

So they premiered two episodes at Cannes?

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt when it comes to producing the show, but once they've finished producing all 26 episodes, I don't think they have an excuse to not air them. I know US network telly has the concept of "mid-season replacements", but that won't apply to a delay from spring to late autumn.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1153175" onclick="return highlight('1153175', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1153175">&gt;&gt;1153175</a><br />So they premiered two episodes at Cannes?<br /><br />I&#039;ll give them the benefit of the doubt when it comes to producing the show, but once they&#039;ve finished producing all 26 episodes, I don&#039;t think they have an excuse to not air them.

It looks more wooly than most FiM plushies I've seen, so that'll be a difference from normally. It looks better the more I look at it.

When I look at it, it seems to be made out of a few pipe cleaners instead of a fluffy puffy tail. But then, I've never really felt or used any pipe cleaners in my life, so for what I know, they could be pretty fluffy.

>...I need a better site for watching cartoons online...

A good cable subscription, enough so to receive most children's channels, will always beat out online cartoon sites. And if cable doesn't work, there is a 40-60 chance (if it has aired in the UK a few years before) it's on Netflix. And if that doesn't work either, you'll likely have *hark*Pirate Bay*sneeze* as a remaining option.

>Will probably try some more eps but haven't yet.

I find Sky often doesn't have what I want, gives the same description for every ep of the series, and sometimes shows edited versions without warning.

I don't have it.

Can't see Mia and Me there, either... Guess I might be able to find it somewhere, but it's nicer not to download them...

Well, I watched 2 Mia and Me eps (eps 11 and 12). Only one saw the henchmen get shrunk and putting back together the trumpet is apparently a task that spans 20 eps, so I guess you got a strange impression of it?

Still, very wooden acting, and, much as I loved the equines' animation, it wasn't shown off enough. I got the Naga villain's introduction ep, and he was wonderful, but... The plots were slowly paced without much to offer. Also, the real life sections seemed very unrelated to the story's message, which I wasn't expecting! It would have been nice if it didn't so much make the real life sections feel unnecessary. Maybe they use it more later?

Overall it was a little more mediocre than I think it should be, but I'll probably read through some ep summaries for ones that sound good and give them a try. By which I mean I'm going to look for the water episode to see the hippocampus do something other than just appearing in the opening credits!

And I'd say Dreamstone's worth a look. As I recall, the first ep actually is a good place to start.

Good find. I guess they've finally gotten around to the "social media presence" they mentioned in a tweet some months ago.

The Twitter page so far focuses only on Filly Butterfly (referring specifically to it on the Twitter account header), and I haven't checked the Facebook page, but it seems they're serious about reaching the American market, and I can get some good posting pictures out of it too.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1175830" onclick="return highlight('1175830', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1175830">&gt;&gt;1175830</a><br />Good find.

Filly Funtasia seems to be the biggest push into the market, being made with an American show crew (The list of writers seems to be entirely Americans or maybe Canadians). The Butterfly and Wedding lines has also been listed on the dedicated Myfilly website's American English section (which was before simply the Filly site) for a month or two, so I think those lines will get to American toy aisles before long to really kick-off the brand.

But this is pretty much qualified guesswork.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1176342" onclick="return highlight('1176342', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1176342">&gt;&gt;1176342</a><br />Filly Funtasia seems to be the biggest push into the market, being made with an American show crew (The list of writers seems to be entirely Americans or maybe Canadians).

Filly on 4chan is alive! Which I presume is a good thing.

While reading through the thread, it hit me that there wasn't much of note that actually happened in that thread, maybe except the Futasia jokes near the end (of which there's been a few on Ponychan too). I feel like comparing 4chan's and /oat/'s Filly threads to Seinfeld (Invented the "show about nothing" formula) and Frasier (Was at one point considered the most intelligent show on US network).

At least I got confirmed the existence of the After Dark site, which has among most Ponychan Funtasians been a vague rumour for months.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1194846" onclick="return highlight('1194846', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1194846">&gt;&gt;1194846</a><br />Filly on 4chan is alive!

You think this was bad? The German version of that source shows the date for completion as "Frühjahr 2015", and Google Translate translates "frühjahr" as spring. Spring 2015, that is.

First it was April 2014. Then it was simply 2014. And in the past weeks, this has in quick succession become Q4 2014, the time around New Year's 2014/15, early 2015, and spring 2015. The extended delays are announced faster than jab punches in Wii Fit Plus' boxing bonus-time, and I see no end to it. There are no cited explanations for the delay that we know of. Screen 21 does not list the show, and I don't think anypony ever found out which of the uncountable amounts of Black Dragon companies out there were the one that was announced to produce the show.

I announced in a general chat thread on /oat/ yesterday that I was on the verge of giving up all hope for the show, and the verge is getting closer and closer now. Though I also announced there that I wouldn't want several other Funtasians here to know about it, which I've thoroughly broken since I felt the need to mention why it can get much worse than merely "early 2015".

I'm not throwing in the towel for good just yet, and I'll still contribute to Fillychan and finding news (although somewhat less than before), but I can imagine that it'll be game over for my Funtasian interest within two weeks if it continues in this pace.You think <a rel="nofollow" class="externallink" href="http://www.funtasiadaily.com/2014/03/filly-funtasia-in-2015.html">this</a> <span class="externallinkdomain">[www.funtasiadaily.com]</span> was bad?

I can only imagine that there must have been some huge production problems with the remaining episodes, but any confirmed reasons are nowhere to be found. Interviews have cited a, paraphrased, very positive feedback from channels and show buyers, and Mimiga, one of the Filly creators, were surprised that the show had amassed a fanbase back in late November, so I don't think feedback is the problem. And after all, gigantic internet hate hasn't stopped Nickelback, One Direction or Johnny Test from thriving.

I'm still standing strong on my two feet, so that's good as of yet. But I believe the question of giving up is now at least more likely to be 'when' than 'if', even if by virtue of the wait having been extended by a year since the days of the trailer (I usually don't discuss the waiting itself due to my worries about causing bad feels/moods/something).<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1247834" onclick="return highlight('1247834', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1247834">&gt;&gt;1247834</a><br />I&#039;m still standing strong on my two feet, so that&#039;s good as of yet.

Filly Funtasia can never boast of this level of autoritah. They'd probably end up with Conchata Ferrel (Berta from Two and a Half Men).

The 4chan sub thing was new to me, both the joke and the existence of a sub(marine?) thingy connected to 4chan.

On Everfreefuntasia, it's been a 420 airhorn blazing party all day and all night.

I wasn't (un)lucky enough to see the draft, but I guess that if it gets delayed even further, we'll have all the reasons in the world to get grumpy together.

Yay for the update! Boo for the bitterness. It's fully understandable, of course, especially as we haven't been giving any explanation, but... I don't know. Maybe we could come up with something fun to do with existing toy-related content? Waiting another year sucks, but I've enjoyed our waiting thus far.

Could we perhaps come up with some monthly Filly-related thing to help the time pass?

I guess to people who think it's a new thing it must seem strange? Though thinking that Hasbro can trademark colourful animated horses as a whole is kind of funny.

I'm not sure, mostly I was thinking that 12 focused fan events sounds a lot easier than 365 days of a vague "can we still find the motivation?" feeling.

We're a bit limited by the small amount of interest and official content, so something that could be comfortably kept to this thread's regulars would be good (invite others to join but make no assumptions).

If that ever were to possibly happen, I know of at least five other horse toy brands just at my nearest Toys 'R' Us that qualifies more as cash-ins on MLP than what Filly does.

I don't have many ideas for that. A fanfic contest is the only idea that appears in my mind, if we knew how to share the stories with each other?

If MIPTV brings with it news of practically any kind (or no news at all), we could be able to base a strategy for a few months on that.

Are you implying that My Pretty Pony isn't entirely original?

>A fanfic contest is the only idea that appears in my mind, if we knew how to share the stories with each other?

Maybe one on the DA? And try to get people to focus on characters other than those shown in the trailer? After all, the toys have bios...

Perhaps a contest to design their own Filly family? Focus on OCs is a bit of a weird way to go, but it should be easier to keep it short and comparable. While a short comedy fic is hard to compare to a lengthy story with philosophical elements, comparing a family of 4 to a family of 4 should be simpler, no?

Given that the toy bios exist and that the Filly world is supposedly quite detailed (sure someone said that on this thread) we could try to use that to our advantage.

Maybe the first contest should be for contest ideas.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1256612" onclick="return highlight('1256612', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1256612">&gt;&gt;1256612</a><br />Are you implying that My Pretty Pony isn&#039;t entirely original?<br /><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;A fanfic contest is the only idea that appears in my mind, if we knew how to share the stories with each other?</span><br />Maybe one on the DA?

That would give a huge advantage to people who can draw at par with the best of Derpibooru, e.g. you and Four Leaves. I've got some medium-size experience with hand-drawing (with >>1245037 being my most recent one), and I seriously doubt that Soth could draw anything of note, unless he surprises me. Also, how long should each event be? I could draw four Fillys within a few hours (Less than six) unless I get tired and need a long break from the drawing, and personalities are done within another hour and a half. If it's too short or too rapid, that'd be only one or two days of activity per month.

>Maybe the first contest should be for contest ideas.

Maybe as a pilot contest, but not as a full-on contest where it goes another month before the winner ideas gets tried out.

I meant for it to focus on the character qualities (how the 4 are related, where they live, etc). Give the marks for how believable they are and how well they fit into the Fillyverse rather than just their presentation. Maybe some on the colour theme, but certainly not just artwork.

>I meant for it to focus on the character qualities (how the 4 are related, where they live, etc).

Hmm... doesn't sound too bad, though it's getting a bit late in the evening for my brain to think things through. I have experience with OC colouring from a Ponychan-posting-personality-that-was-once-good-but-is-no-longer-correct thing I made last December (Positively helped me with the face), so that's the least of my obstacles.

>it would let us know how many of the DA watchers are paying attention!

I'm surprised there's still 25 watchers of the DA Filly group, considering it imploded months ago when several artists that had pictures there closed their accounts. But if we get the DA group's attention on it, and Soth mentions it on his site and tweets about it like he does with his usual articles, we could be looking at a super-contest with participators from Funtasia Daily, Fillychan, DeviantArt and FillyRT. Covering multiple sites was however the motivation for why I made Fillychan in the first place, so such a dream has failed once before.

Also, I have really little experience with DA posting standards.

Normally just repeating the basics about "must be your own art and obey DA rules" plus more if you want sexual and grimdark content ruled out completely.

Seems to be pretty hit and miss for whether or not a contest catches on, even when the prizes are good... Recently I've seen several artists put "you must have posted a journal about this contest to enter" in the rules to help get the word out, so that's a possibility.

That's MLPG's "sub" (what they call the imageboard they created, based on one of their internal jokes); MLPG is one of those pony serial threads on 4chan that predates the existence of /mlp/. All other such serial threads have now dissolved or left 4chan entirely, but MLPG makes sure there's always a serial thread about MLP on /mlp/.

Heheh. I remember a guy at Ponychan-/int/'s German thread that thought I was running my "Filly blog", seemingly thinking I was the one behind Funtasia Daily.

>They are there. There's this pdf: (link)

Well found.

I thought MIPTV was something of an exclusive club for major telly companies, so it surprised me that they have an entire pavillion dedicated to Spanish entities. Their concepts amuse me too, such as "The Shower" (I swear I saw a strip in Frode Øverli's Rutetid that was about that), and this line from Lucky Fred 2: "Fred, an ordinary 13-year-old boy who accidentally became the owner of a super-powered, shape-shifting robot who can turn into any object Fred can dream of with a simple voice command."

>Edit: It looks like the 2nd Filly promo is now gone from WorldScreen. What does it mean?

I have two possibilities. Either the trailer has timed out by being too old, or they're preparing something new. I remember from the first Tinker Bell movie's troubled production that the first trailer(s) disappeared when there came new trailers which showed a completely different plot, so if history repeats, we could be looking at a refurbished show with huge differences from the original basis.

My guesses would be that the promo was just up too long or that the moved release date meant they didn't want it taking up space so early on, but
>or they're preparing something new. I remember from the first Tinker Bell movie's troubled production that the first trailer(s) disappeared when there came new trailers which showed a completely different plot, so if history repeats, we could be looking at a refurbished show with huge differences from the original basis.
Would be interesting! So would that mean a reshuffle of the episode order and a different focus? Seems pretty possible, especially if the precedent has been set by Disney.

Also could explain the timeline (brackets for speculation):
>Some finished episodes shown
>(Feedback highlighting a strength they weren't aware of)
>(Discussions on moving to focus on that strength)
>Release date delayed
>One of the old promos taken down
...Though if that were true, we'd expect the trailer to disappear off the main YouTube... Then again, I'd expect that anyway given that it still says 2014.

Speaking of the original trailer, it still surprises me that so many people are so quick to judge when the FIM trailers included https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Rkd_uS5xA0 ! How have some people still not realised that trailers for a particular audience are all pretty indistinguishable in tone?

>The grand question then is, who shall be in charge of the contest? I don't believe I have the resources or experience to run an organised contest, especially not outside of Ponychan.

Hm, I'm not sure... Like I said, I've still not quite pinpointed what makes contests a hit and what doesn't. Vague limitations (e.g. "draw a pony, any pony!") aren't very inspiring, and it's a pain afterwards to find out that 1 person (with specific likes) is the judge (group decisions are favoured), but I've seen some with good prizes not take off. My best guess is that it's the advertising for it.

Individual artists might be happy to help get the word out. I see that CeleryPony has shown an interest in the group, and her cute OC animations make her a known artist, so she's sure to have a lot of watchers, so encouraging artists to spread the word even if they don't have the time to enter would probably be a good move. I've seen some groups politely request prize donations too (e.g. spare points, or offering to draw a pic for the winner). Sometimes other groups help too, but normally only if it relates to their topic, plus they'd need to be large and active groups to justify the effort...

Maybe just post a journal entry and see what type of response you get and what people have to say? Something concise, like: "Should we have a contest? What experiences (good or bad) have you had with DA contests?" <<< (Assume that most people won't reply to lengthy journals. If they DO reply then you could ask more questions.)

If you get a good response then the UK/US Easter Holiday overlap is coming up (13th-21st) and trying to include at least some of that time might help. Or not! Again, it depends on who's interested.

>So would that mean a reshuffle of the episode order and a different focus?
Judging by the Tinker Bell example, it'd mean a full restart from scratch. I doubt that anypony else here knows the movie's production problems, but its original plot (from what small pieces we could get) was Tinker Bell going to some school to be granted access to pixie dust, which would then be used to spread belief to children all over Britain the world; and there may also have been something with a girl going to Pixie Hollow as a fairy. It is said that John Lasseter himself declared it unwatchable and demanded they start all over again, and the final result was about preparing for a winter-spring season change and Tinker Bell doubting her pots-and-pans talent.

>Some finished episodes shown

>(Feedback highlighting a strength they weren't aware of)
>(Discussions on moving to focus on that strength)
What kind of strength could it be in that case? If the professional companies have seen something about that we haven't (which is somewhat likely), what do they see?

>that trailer

Boomerang must really have tried to push the friendship aspect there.

>the contest part

I for one think the main problem with the contest isn't whether it'll be popular or not, but rather how to start it at all. I believe several of us on Fillychan want something to do, and there'll probably be a few more when(/if) Soth mentions it on his site.

We might never find out what happened to the cupcakes? HORROR!

>strength

Such meddling doesn't always result in good things, but I'd hope that, if it were the case, it would be something nice like wanting stronger links between characters (cough-friendship-cough) or more depth in the dialogue. Maybe they took out or added a romantic interest? Romantic interests are popular with companies but FIM's been praised for avoiding them, so that could go either way. Maybe they decided some of the magic lore needed tweaking?

I'd hope it's making it more interesting rather than making it generic. I don't mind things staying simple but I do like to see new things get tried.

>contest

I'd hope for, perhaps some world building, or a more clear chemistry between the Magic Mirror, Battiwigs and the Fillys? I don't have anything major on the wishlist.

>Maybe they took out or added a romantic interest? Romantic interests are popular with companies but FIM's been praised for avoiding them

I remember back when FiM became a thing that shows aimed at "girls", that is Disney Channel's poorly-produced sitcoms and the Nick competitors, were crammed to the brim with teen romances, so from what I remember from back in 2011, it was revolutionary at the time to have a girls' show on a commercial channel that didn't have recurring romances.

>the typical contest set-up

Sounds simple enough to me.

Holy crap. Calling all Filly posters! Calling all Filly posters! It's on like Hawaii football!

It'll take me at least a week, maybe two or three, to ask every question I could ask about this, but the most attentive questions first:

Who is "Home Focus development"? Why are they using teen dance music for the trailer (Though, EqG did that too)? The quality of the animation really has increased tenfold and even twenty-fold since the days of Bernard, and I could easily increase my Filly pic folder from 110-ish to 250 with this.

The mirrors being used as communication devices brings up the possibility that Batty is secretly keeping Mr Mirror in the school, and that sometimes the mirror looks normal. Would explain why a potential menace gets to stay on school grounds.

The Case of the Missing Cupcakes and Meet Alicornator and Nerd-horse definitely seem to be separate stories. I see a FunDaily commenter has suggested When Rose Met Lynn as another one, which does sound like a sweet introduction story, but I'm not sure it has to be separate... This said, the shipping hugging scene has the selfie mirror, and it seems Rose knowing the answer in class caused shock, so maybe Rose's first day is an ep. They did all seem to know each other in the cupcakes ep, and it's good for series to start with us meeting characters at the same time the protagonist does, so it's likely.

I wonder if the frog and whirlwind spell are separate too...

Another scene comparison: The kick-scene in the new trailer has more vibrant colours.

No, wait, the frog's watching the shipping.

Not sure if the mirror with the pillar of red magic is the selfie mirror though. Maybe that's effectively Rose's mobile? Alicorny seems to have his. Gem (and its explosive arrival, I think) goes with Al too.

So much mystery! Only seems like a few eps are shown but I guess that's where they're up to now.

I just realised, and I wonder how I didn't realise it earlier: HFDL from the first trailer stands for Home Focus development Limited from the third trailer. I blame only having looked at Funtasia Daily's article when it was fresh off the press and only had the BRB collection video.

Maybe I put a lot of faith in Filly Funtasia with this, but it seems to me like the show that will save modern cartoons. I just so happened to take a look at an Uncle Grandpa episode on CN an hour before the trailer, and the low, shocked "What?" came out of my mouth with the frequency of shotgun rounds. I think I said it 50 times in 12 minutes, and it was so weird at times that I fell tears.

>>1275806

>so maybe Rose's first day is an ep
I remember I read on a toy site a month or so ago that the show started off with Rose's first day at the Academy, so I'm pretty sure that'll happen.

>The kick-scene in the new trailer has more vibrant colours.

Almost the entire trailer seemed to have more vibrant colours, and the comparison pic on Funtasia Daily showed a much clearer background near the window. The background decorations in the kick-scene was good enough to make a mockery out of every hand-drawn cartoon ever on that area.

I can't say I saw a frog spell, so maybe it's just a pet frog á la Angel Bunny?

Ah, okay. I tend to ignore stuff like that anyway.

>it seems to me like the show that will save modern cartoons.

Honestly, I'm not sure modern cartoons need saving... Much as I love 80s cartoons, there were a lot of problems then, particularly talking down to kids (as some shows were even forced into doing), and that's much less in fashion now. More kids' shows get praised for avoid it.

This said, FIM has had a monopoly on the clearly-popular "non-humanoids in a fantasy world" thing, and not only do I personally want more of that but I feel that competition will do FIM good. Hasbro tried to take on MH's "weird high school students" thing even though so much of MH's appeal is the gothic edge, monster theme, and high-quality toys, which EG had none of. On top of that, it's like it never occurred to Hasbro that the magical world and ponies make up any of My Little PONY: Friendship is MAGIC's appeal, so it's about time another show stepped up to the mark to try to appeal to that audience. Entertainment is about escapism and it's shockingly rare that more shows don't push that.

>Uncle Grandpa

[Googles] Uh... I didn't say that all modern cartoons are good! There are some weird styles out there, normally combined with weird plots.

>>so maybe Rose's first day is an ep

>I remember I read on a toy site a month or so ago that the show started off with Rose's first day at the Academy, so I'm pretty sure that'll happen.
Haha, okay!

>>The kick-scene in the new trailer has more vibrant colours.

>Almost the entire trailer seemed to have more vibrant colours, and the comparison pic on Funtasia Daily showed a much clearer background near the window.
Aye, it's just another like-for-like comparison. I guess someone's put more money into this and said that "a variety of colours" is a strong point. I really do like that it's not all pink and pastel colours. I think there's a bit too much pink in the main cast's designs, but the backgrounds help to neutralise that, resulting in the pink trio looking better together.

>The background decorations in the kick-scene was good enough to make a mockery out of every hand-drawn cartoon ever on that area.

There are some gorgeous hand-drawn cartoons out there, but Funtasia does seem to be trying to make use of some of the advantages of 3D graphics, even if hair/etc is kept simplified.

The synchronised runners (on the left and bottom when it gives the 50+ countries stat) bug me, but generally I think they're making good use of the 3D world: Bright colours, lots of interesting designs (and without going for horses-everywhere like FIM), lots of items, a variety of textures, a variety of light sources... Have I mentioned how much it bugs me when FIM animators use white to highlight? That's an amateur error and it looks tacky, even if some fans praise any inclusion of shading. Meanwhile, Funtasia's done a really good job of getting it all to look lovely and the lighting to look natural without letting any of the scenes get so dark that they look unappealing.

>>No, wait, the frog's watching the shipping.

>I can't say I saw a frog spell, so maybe it's just a pet frog á la Angel Bunny?
I meant the swirly spell and the frog separately. It could be that the frog's a pet/familiar. Maybe Lynn's, since she's a Witchy Filly? (It's cool that amphibians and reptiles have grown in popularity as girls' pets in shows lately! Always bugged me when girls were depicted as being scared of/disgusted by any animal without fur.)

>And by 2021, they'll have a virtual reality world trailer with dubious intentions that'd make the Friendship is Optimal fanfic proud.

So much to answer too... This is going to take a while to write.

>Uh... I didn't say that all modern cartoons are good! There are some weird styles out there, normally combined with weird plots.
You've got a pretty good point there. But in the same way that Filly dislikers think of it as a rip-off of FiM, I can't stop thinking of Wander over Yonder as a rip-off of Adventure Time (which I already disliked), and Sanjay & Craig and Rick & Morty as rip-offs of Regular Show, and Uncle Grandpa as a rip-off of both. Where's the inventive differing writing? Where's the in any way coherent episode plots?

Though I also have to say that I liked EqG and disliked Monster High.

>Entertainment is about escapism and it's shockingly rare that more shows don't push that.

Really compelling fiction can and will make you spend lots of time thinking about going and being there, and the more time spent, the better it is. But I've only had this effect in coherent amounts from childrens' cartoons and the occasional childrens' book and fanfictions based on those two. I think gritty settings, and progress with catches and deaths have been in for quite some years (The Dark Knight, TF Prime, Black Dynamite), which has provided great action, but would anypony want to dream themselves into worlds where you can die at any possible moment?

>I guess someone's put more money into this and said that "a variety of colours" is a strong point. I really do like that it's not all pink and pastel colours.

They've even taken care to not have much pink in the show logo *hark*FiM*sneeze*.

>Have I mentioned how much it bugs me when FIM animators use white to highlight? That's an amateur error and it looks tacky, even if some fans praise any inclusion of shading.

I don't think you've mentioned it to me before, but FiM aren't the kings of shadows. The shadows under all the ponies are round like a football, trees and mountains have no shadows, and lighting in general is like an early 00's PS2 game.

>I meant the swirly spell and the frog separately.

Aaaah, now I understood the context of that line. I have no clue which episode the swirly spell belongs to, but I'd guess wildly that it has something to do with the scene where Will (apparently) pretends to be a teacher. But the frog is there too... Maybe the frog is a recurring character?

>Right, I'm going to compare the S1 classroom of FIM with the S1 classroom of FF, because casual analysis counts as "a fun weekend activity" to me

Summary: It's so long it needs two posts and rather makes it sound that I dislike FIM's style, which is really not true, but FF certainly holds up a lot better to nitpicking. Overall, I don't think anyone calling Funtasia ugly could compare these two scenes and find FIM superior on any accounts unless the reviewer had a preference for the cartoon style or the type of classroom (and, to be fair, I really rather love FIM's art style and prefer 2D generally and I still think FF's managed its art better here).

Obviously the two scenes are after a slightly different feel: The magical school for young adult royalty and the small village school for foals. However, there are obvious similarities from the start: Classroom setting, repeated patterns around the top of the room, windows to the left, 9 pupils, blackboard towards the front, etc, so I'm going to look at the implementation (all whilst politely not going on about the Sweetie and Scoot recolours at the front of FIM's class). I'll leave out FF's teacher and Al, too, since there's nothing to compare them to in the FIM scene.

Colours and patterns

FIM has gone for a warmer green and beige with a brown floor whilst FF has gone for a colder blues and greys contrasted with an orange floor. Overall they both contribute to the main themes of the two, with FF being grander and more professional whereas FIM has the warmer, friendlier, feel. FIM generally goes with horsey and hearts for decorations, continued in this room, and FF has plenty of elaborate patterns to look at. All good so far!

Lighting

There is no world outside those FIM windows and quite where so much light has come from is... Questionable. The room should be pretty dingy with dark little windows half-covered by curtains. The use of light isn't so bad (darkest around the light source wall, bright around the pupils to bring attention to them, dark towards the foreground so that it's less distracting), but it does create some contradictions. There's also a disagreement of shadows: The vampiric FIM fillies and much of the room's furnishings have no shadows at all, whilst the desks and most benches have shadows directly under them, and the back benches have one long shadow between them.

Meanwhile, FF, which has very convincing lighting (3D is cheating), has emphasised the light streaming through the windows to give a warmer, friendlier, feel that the room's design doesn't. The shadows towards the top further emphasise room size and grandeur. It also has translucent wings on the Fairy Fillies, which is nice. No world to be seen through the windows there either, but they look full of light rather than blanked out, which adds to the atmosphere and, with so many shiny surfaces, supports the amount of lighting.

Given the limitations of 2D, FIM compares pretty well, but the dark windows and shadow inconsistencies let it down a little.

Room materials

Why does the FIM school have a straw floor? Surely floorboards would have better given the school vibe? Maybe it was meant to be cute, but it comes across as a bit messy. Meanwhile, the walls... On the buildings I take those patterns to the timber frame house thing but here it seems to be wallpaper? I'm not sure what the ceiling's meant to be. Also, the curtains furthest away aren't properly hanging on their rail.

FF has tiled floors, metal and stone/marble wall decorations, and some wood used next to the ceiling. The windows have patterned wooden frames.

Obvious FF is cheating again with its 3D advantages, but as FIM was going for the "small village simple classroom" feel it should have a simplistic and easily recognised feel in the room structure as well as the layout. A little more care on this could have added a lot to the overall impression.

Furniture

FF seems to have dragged in fancy coffee tables and some mismatched furniture to make the room more classroomy, plus we can't see what the Fillies are sitting on (though it seems there's something). While this takes away from the professional vibe, I think it brings in a "bustling, busy, classroom" feel, helped by the big piles of books and scrolls.

FIM has gone for simplistic, but not entirely well... Obviously I'd nitpick if they were clearly copied and pasted, but the back row's desk tops seem wonky and Diamond Tiara's desk has lost its legs and had its heart hole filled in. Also, Scootabloo's bench is plenty big enough for her whilst Tootsie's slipping over the back of hers. It's nice that they aren't all identical, but still.

The blackboards are a nice comparison point: Simplistic and hung on the wall for FIM and intricate and worked into the wall design for FF. Hooray for blackboards!

Part 2:

Items

The telescope and projector screen leap out in the FIM classroom. While FIM has a variety of technology, it doesn't help the simplistic feel, especially if they just leave their telescope lying around. Shouldn't in be in a proper closet? And if not, where's the projector? Maybe it was stolen. Moving on: The books. The ones at the back have been carelessly coloured so that their pages blend into the wall, and the ones near the front have been styled so that they look more wooden than the furniture. Ah well, apart from the bags looking a bit too clearly copied-and-pasted in terms of positioning, the pupils' personal learning accessories are good, so there's that. Anyway, beyond the #2Dworldproblems...

FIM has the telescope, a globe, a whole bunch of books, some paper, a note, a flipchart, a projector screen, 4 paintings. Maybe a vase under the furthest painting (it blends into the wall somewhat).

FF has books, hourglasses, scrolls, paintbrushes, some vases, a flask/urn-thing (under the middle window), a... Candle? On the shelves at the back? Some paper, what looks like a small pyramid (on the right), a strange painting between the windows, and a potted plant.

Let's start with wall decorations: The two simplistic pictures on the walls of FIM's classroom have been doubled into four, and they don't go particularly well with the rest of the room. The painting in FF is ridiculously detailed and the strange frame makes me wonder if there's more to it. It's also a little at odds with its surroundings (less colourful and grand than the rest), but it's clear a lot of thought's gone into it, whereas copying 2 pictures and not even changing the colours... Lazy. Just 2 pictures would have been fine anyway.

I'm not sure why FF has so many timers, but I'm inclined to think they're for a purpose, plus I'm fond of hourglasses: They look nice and, at the very least, further show off 3D's ability to cope with glass. A healthy amount of scrolls adds to the fantasy world vibe, which (magical horses aside) FIM left outside of the classroom. The paintbrushes (I assume are for calligraphy) are a nice touch (I mistook them for boring pencils at first). The plant's a nice addition, too. While one could certainly argue that someone's just placed random accessories around to fill up the room, a bit more of that wouldn't be amiss in FIM's room. I know they're after the simple feel, but having a telescope instead of an abacus (old school vibe), and paintings and a vase instead of foal's work and art supplies (primary school vibe)? It feels like they could have put more into the atmosphere. FF's room is messier but I think it has a stronger classroom vibe that FIM's scene, featuring a primary school, could easily have outdone it on. After all, primary school have much more nostalgia value and are more familiar, but this hasn't been put to much use.

Pupils

Both sets have a nice variety of hairstyles (though FIM's sat its identical pair next to each other), FF's a little samey with them all having crowns, and FIM is far ahead on tail variety. However, apart from Silver Spoon, FIM has broken all the visible foals' legs to have them sit down, which I'm going to mark it down on (there's no need to break kids' bones, Hasbro). FIM foals also have varied foreleg length, and while the style allows for that, I think it's nice that the FF pupils look so solid. As a side note, that solidness will add more tension to action scenes because the added realism compared to FF's rubbery cartoon bones will automatically make us think more of real limbs.

CONCLUSION

FIM's bright and cartoony style goes well enough with the little classroom, and the failures in the scene can be put down to it being S1. However, FF's first season's backgrounds already look to have a lot more love in them. It could be because this classroom will feature more (the mane 6 don't attend school), but if you look at Twilight's library you'll see that it's also quite bare and kind of impractical (very few places for ponies to read books, nothing like a sofa, etc). Obviously FF's at an advantage that it's easier for them to place random items and have them look fine from different angles (as shown later in the new trailer), but they are USING that advantage whilst FIM seems to have struggled with thinking of advantages for this scene (e.g. not having foals' artwork up). FF is pushing fancy fantasy a lot more whilst FIM didn't really push a small village schoolroom vibe very much beyond the desks.

Obviously they're not like and like, and FIM has clear effort shown elsewhere, but I think it says good things that FF compares so well in room design.

Final note: No writing implements? In either? Weird.

>So much to answer too... This is going to take a while to write.
By all means take your time! Detailed nitpicking is fun for me, it's why I've spent so much time on /pony/ in the past.

>You've got a pretty good point there. But in the same way that Filly dislikers think of it as a rip-off of FiM, I can't stop thinking of Wander over Yonder as a rip-off of Adventure Time (which I already disliked), and Sanjay & Craig and Rick & Morty as rip-offs of Regular Show, and Uncle Grandpa as a rip-off of both. Where's the inventive differing writing? Where's the in any way coherent episode plots?

AT has deep, complex, plots that span over several seasons, but I can understand how the excitable and unpredictable front, whilst appealing to me, could be off-putting to others. While I've not seen S&C or UG, I think R&M is copying AT more than RS (I really hate the voices of R&M but I'll probably force more upon myself sometime for the plots and settings).

RS's thing is going from slice of life to wacky in every plot, plus a strange world that's never been quite explained (unusually, all the normal humans are secondary or background characters and are otherwise never distinguished by their being human). It has few long term story lines, though has done some of them very well.

I'm sure AT has brought the weird world/wacky characters back into popularity in a way that hasn't been very big since the 80's sci-fi cartoons and Looney Tunes, and I certainly agree this isn't all good. WOY is like Spongebob-meets-Adventure-Time and not very well done (unless it got better).

>Though I also have to say that I liked EqG and disliked Monster High.

What I've seen of MH hasn't been so bad, considering, but I give it leeway because the clear imagination is in the dolls and the show's kind of tacked onto that. EG was just bland to me, but then we know we have different preferences there.

>>Entertainment is about escapism and it's shockingly rare that more shows don't push that.

>...would anypony want to dream themselves into worlds where you can die at any possible moment?
Well, the superhero worlds are attractive, but that's kid stuff again... I think it's because, to be adult, shows have to include sex and/or gore to a certain extent, and if they're not using that a lot then they'll be told to extract it entirely and be a family show, which limits plots a lot. Adult Swim properly brought in adult cartoons but they've got the same thing going on and, while some thrive on that, or at least cope with it, overall it has to limit the stories they can tell, and make some elements feel forced. Kind of a shame.

Plus, yes, "gritty" (the grey, brown, and angsty type) is really "in". It's resulted in some really ugly films, shows, and games, but they'll keep wringing it out until bright colours make a comeback.

>They've even taken care to not have much pink in the show logo *hark*FiM*sneeze*.

Haha, yes! FF's is so much fancier. I wouldn't mind it as a keyring.

>>Have I mentioned how much it bugs me when FIM animators use white to highlight? That's an amateur error and it looks tacky, even if some fans praise any inclusion of shading.

>I don't think you've mentioned it to me before, but FiM aren't the kings of shadows. The shadows under all the ponies are round like a football, trees and mountains have no shadows, and lighting in general is like an early 00's PS2 game.
No shadows is one thing, and simplistic shadows I can let pass, but BAD shading? I can't find the white highlights right now, but in opening eps and finales they tend to whip it out, and it's just... Sloppy. I know animated is more difficult than still images but if they can put any shading on them I'm sure they could do it better than that.

>But the frog is there too... Maybe the frog is a recurring character?

I'm leaning towards familiar at this point. I want Lynn to have a froggy friend.

>>Ah, I'm looking forward to the next article IDing the ponies in this, I can't place blue-haired-orange (glaring at Will near the start) either!

>It's been a while since EMF was active with Filly, so I don't think we could count on him. But how would we be supposed to ID the Alicornator, among other odd-ones-out?
I'm not sure, normally I just look at the family trees... I'm thinking a chart more extensive than http://www.funtasiadaily.com/2013/10/filly-toy-post.html should be put together.
>It's part of why I saved these images, as name references, but my collection's pretty incomplete.

Detailed nitpicking is fun for me, it&#039;s why I&#039;ve spent so much time on /pony/ in the past.<br /><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;You&#039;ve got a pretty good point there. But in the same way that Filly dislikers think of it as a rip-off of FiM, I can&#039;t stop thinking of Wander over Yonder as a rip-off of Adventure Time (which I already disliked), and Sanjay &amp; Craig and Rick &amp; Morty as rip-offs of Regular Show, and Uncle Grandpa as a rip-off of both. Where&#039;s the inventive differing writing? Where&#039;s the in any way coherent episode plots?</span><br />AT has deep, complex, plots that span over several seasons, but I can understand how the excitable and unpredictable front, whilst appealing to me, could be off-putting to others. While I&#039;ve not seen S&amp;C or UG, I think R&amp;M is copying AT more than RS (I really hate the voices of R&amp;M but I&#039;ll probably force more upon myself sometime for the plots and settings).<br /><br />RS&#039;s thing is going from slice of life to wacky in every plot, plus a strange world that&#039;s never been quite explained (unusually, all the normal humans are secondary or background characters and are otherwise never distinguished by their being human). It has few long term story lines, though has done some of them very well.<br /><br />I&#039;m sure AT has brought the weird world/wacky characters back into popularity in a way that hasn&#039;t been very big since the 80&#039;s sci-fi cartoons and Looney Tunes, and I certainly agree this isn&#039;t all good. WOY is like Spongebob-meets-Adventure-Time and not very well done (unless it got better).<br /><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;Though I also have to say that I liked EqG and disliked Monster High.</span><br />What I&#039;ve seen of MH hasn&#039;t been so bad, considering, but I give it leeway because the clear imagination is in the dolls and the show&#039;s kind of tacked onto that.

I think it&#039;s because, to be adult, shows have to include sex and/or gore to a certain extent, and if they&#039;re not using that a lot then they&#039;ll be told to extract it entirely and be a family show, which limits plots a lot. Adult Swim properly brought in adult cartoons but they&#039;ve got the same thing going on and, while some thrive on that, or at least cope with it, overall it has to limit the stories they can tell, and make some elements feel forced. Kind of a shame.<br /><br />Plus, yes, &quot;gritty&quot; (the grey, brown, and angsty type) is really &quot;in&quot;. It&#039;s resulted in some really ugly films, shows, and games, but they&#039;ll keep wringing it out until bright colours make a comeback.<br /><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;They&#039;ve even taken care to not have much pink in the show logo *hark*FiM*sneeze*.</span><br />Haha, yes! FF&#039;s is so much fancier. I wouldn&#039;t mind it as a keyring.<br /><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;&gt;Have I mentioned how much it bugs me when FIM animators use white to highlight?

The shadows under all the ponies are round like a football, trees and mountains have no shadows, and lighting in general is like an early 00&#039;s PS2 game.</span><br />No shadows is one thing, and simplistic shadows I can let pass, but BAD shading? I can&#039;t find the white highlights right now, but in opening eps and finales they tend to whip it out, and it&#039;s just... Sloppy. I know animated is more difficult than still images but if they can put any shading on them I&#039;m sure they could do it better than that.<br /><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;But the frog is there too...

There's a fan video by Filly Funtasia Fun (I guess we can describe him as one person?) covering Filly Unicorn toy lore. I think it covers what is pretty old news to Fillychanners, and he had really bad luck releasing it the day after the new trailer and so couldn't mix in the new material, and his mic has a heavy Xbox 360-like echo, but it's a fan video nonetheless.

>By all means take your time! Detailed nitpicking is fun for me, it's why I've spent so much time on /pony/ in the past.
It's fun to see how many topics and sub-conversations I can keep track of at once, but when it goes past six or seven, it begins to put its toll on how much of it I can reply to, how long it takes to write, and especially how much I feel/want to reply when initially reading a post. So it may take unusually long for me to do a reply when it's at its most complex, and I rarely follow up on topics where I agree on what is said or if it's anywhere near talked through. But I guess most of /dis/' serious threads are like that too, so I'll try to follow suit when its possible.

>RS's thing is going from slice of life to wacky in every plot, plus a strange world that's never been quite explained

It's often fun seeing how Mordecai and Rigby will end up in extraordinary and deadly situations in every episode, sort of like the patterns in every episode of Phineas & Ferb and several History shows. I was into it until some point in Series 2, but I guess I fell off.

>but I give it leeway because the clear imagination is in the dolls and the show's kind of tacked onto that. EG was just bland to me, but then we know we have different preferences there.

I guess that explains it, as I've never been into monster dolls, or much monsters for that sake. So it seems pretty differing between us there.

>I think it's because, to be adult, shows have to include sex and/or gore to a certain extent, and if they're not using that a lot then they'll be told to extract it entirely and be a family show, which limits plots a lot.

I've come across many shows themed for adults that seemed really interestingly dramatic at first sight, but by the snap of a finger, suddenly there's a murder or two, bare-hands violence, and some pretty sudden relationships with or without the main character. The French show The Returned I checked out some weeks ago had all of these problems, for instance. At least now I know why.

>I can't find the white highlights right now, but in opening eps and finales they tend to whip it out, and it's just... Sloppy.

I recall Celestia's Ballad from MMC flushing you with white-edge highlights everywhere, so I'd suggest looking there.

It's just really nice to have something to point to and say "FF did it better" after so long of people pointing out FIM's superiority to something that doesn't yet exist.

Still generally good feedback on the new trailer! We're not looking so hipster any more.

>So it may take unusually long for me to do a reply when it's at its most complex, and I rarely follow up on topics where I agree on what is said or if it's anywhere near talked through.

Fair, I do much the same.

I don't like dolls, but I do like monsters and can appreciate well-articulated figures and such (I collect non-doll toys).

Mm, not the scene I was thinking of... I don't really want to turn this into a list of my critiques of FIM's animation, anyway. Compared to FF is fair enough but, frankly, FF trumps it at light/shadow in every way, so there's not much reason to go on about it. I also don't like the new face angles that started with Shining and have been frequently applied to all masculine-snouted ponies since then, but in FF the genders look the same apart from hair and accessories, which is... Actually kind of nice? I like FIM's normal male and female body types, but at the same time having them so different emphasises a divide that isn't needed.

Sounds good.

>He has some strange pronunciation going on (...)

I wondered during the first half if he was talking about Fantasia, as in the Disney movie(s), and I don't think I've ever heard anyone pronounce -tasia like that before.

>It's just really nice to have something to point to and say "FF did it better" after so long of people pointing out FIM's superiority to something that doesn't yet exist.

I've had that feeling all the time, that FF could do some stuff better, as I haven't taken many breaks from Filly Funtasia stuff since the first trailer.

>Still generally good feedback on the new trailer! We're not looking so hipster any more.

Speaking of which... I think that BRB has really looked at what has been said about the first trailer by both fans and dislikers, and used some of it for the third trailer. More adventuring, scenes from more episodes, more than just the ol' cupcakes, better animating, more details, dramatic scenes, more magic, all of this is what I believe was things that were asked for both from and since the first trailer.

>I also don't like the new face angles that started with Shining and have been frequently applied to all masculine-snouted ponies since then

Are we talking about things like Shining's Twily face (There is such a thing as the Twily face, right? As I don't know how else it can be explained.)? Because frequent appliances of such faces on all male ponies sounds like a recipe for disaster.

>>1277348

I'm generally at a loss of words when it comes to describing what I find interesting with Funtasia, but the most common reasons I cite is that it reminds me of the best of all MLP generations, fixes several peeves I have with FiM, and it's simply another one on my a-few-years-old list of good girls' shows I('d) watch.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1277345" onclick="return highlight('1277345', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1277345">&gt;&gt;1277345</a><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;It&#039;s food time for me but I&#039;ve got the screenshots and I&#039;ll put them into one pic later.</span><br />Sounds good.<br /><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;He has some strange pronunciation going on (...)</span><br />I wondered during the first half if he was talking about Fantasia, as in the Disney movie(s), and I don&#039;t think I&#039;ve ever heard anyone pronounce -tasia like that before.<br /><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;It&#039;s just really nice to have something to point to and say &quot;FF did it better&quot; after so long of people pointing out FIM&#039;s superiority to something that doesn&#039;t yet exist.</span><br />I&#039;ve had that feeling all the time, that FF could do some stuff better, as I haven&#039;t taken many breaks from Filly Funtasia stuff since the first trailer.<br /><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;Still generally good feedback on the new trailer!

It's not that I ever doubted it COULD do stuff better, but people bashing it made it a proper underdog, so it getting some wins is nice to see.

>>Still generally good feedback on the new trailer! We're not looking so hipster any more.

>Speaking of which... I think that BRB has really looked at what has been said about the first trailer by both fans and dislikers [...]
Indeed it is! Maybe the feedback really was good and they got more funding and time to make it look better? I think a year's delay implies bigger changes too, though, like bits of the plot, or maybe voices... I wonder if we'll get access to some of the original eps later to compare?

>>I also don't like the new face angles that started with Shining and have been frequently applied to all masculine-snouted ponies since then

I'm not sure if we're talking about the same thing... My problem's when they try to use the whole face shape as a nose so that they can do that 3/4 face for Celestia, Luna, and male ponies. Looks very Cubism to me, but some people don't see the problem with it.

>Howzat?

Kept their descriptions where it came with the names (even if it's in German), but the pic was too big for Ponychan: http://ge.tt/7cGmunY1/v/0

That Mr Orange Glarer isn't any of those unicorns makes me suspect that early guesses that this character is an antagonist is correct.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1277486" onclick="return highlight('1277486', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1277486">&gt;&gt;1277486</a><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;I&#039;ve had that feeling all the time, that FF could do some stuff better, as I haven&#039;t taken many breaks from Filly Funtasia stuff since the first trailer.</span><br />It&#039;s not that I ever doubted it COULD do stuff better, but people bashing it made it a proper underdog, so it getting some wins is nice to see.<br /><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;&gt;Still generally good feedback on the new trailer!

Hold on a second, something just struck me... The BRB representant in the first trailer mentioned that it would be ready for MIPTV. Did he ever say that the entire show would be completed and ready to be viewed by the time of MIPTV? My thought is sounding increasingly far-fetched as I'm writing this paragraph, but maybe it was never intended for a spring 2014 release at all?

>I'm not sure if we're talking about the same thing...

Well, it's not easy discussing pictures without pictures, so I've used some example pics here, and this time with proper explanations.

>Howzat?

Looks pretty good to me, but now that there appears to be well over a hundred Fillys out there, it's for me a whole lot to look through every time a name is needed.

I noticed they actually had Battiwigs holding the Wizard up. So my headcanon about the Wizard not being able to move much by himself might be true? Now I only need to have the Wizard being able to possess the bat and Princess Sparkle partying all night long and I would be pretty glad.
They're also playing up Will's cuteness. I hope Cedric's character point is actually that he's this really important prince but everyone ignores him/forgets that he's actually there.I noticed they actually had Battiwigs holding the Wizard up.

>I noticed they actually had Battiwigs holding the Wizard up. So my headcanon about the Wizard not being able to move much by himself might be true?
I did indeed see a scene where Battiwigs held up the mirror at the frame, but I also saw the Wizard do a bounce which led to Battiwigs losing grip and both of them falling down in the chest. So the Wizard seems to have pretty limited movement, at least.

>They're also playing up Will's cuteness.

They seem to play up his general happiness/enthusiasm even more, so I guess the cuteness follows naturally along.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1279108" onclick="return highlight('1279108', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1279108">&gt;&gt;1279108</a><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;I noticed they actually had Battiwigs holding the Wizard up.

>Rose's face
So at the moment she seems like the thinker/organiser but also prone to Pinkie-esque excitement (taken in to a more realistic level)? I hope the trailers are giving an accurate impression of her, 'cause she seems really likeable.

>Hold on a second, something just struck me... The BRB representant in the first trailer mentioned that it would be ready for MIPTV.

My thought is sounding increasingly far-fetched as I'm writing this paragraph, but maybe it was never intended for a spring 2014 release at all?

I'm not sure about that... We had lots of 2014 dates and we know episodes are already done, plus the changes in the trailer quality, I think a repeat of the Tinker Bell scenario seems more likely. Though it would be really nice to have some confirmation from someone who knows, it's a shame they're not replying on things any more.

>Shining faces

Actually, top right face is the one I'm fine with. The "Twily" face is silly but doesn't really bug me. One I meant is this type http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120414082022/mlp/images/2/26/Cadance%2C_Shining_Armor%2C_and_Twilight_on_bridge_S2E25.png where it's like the top right you posted but his background eye has swivelled out of its socket to peek over his snout. That's not how faces work.

>Looks pretty good to me, but now that there appears to be well over a hundred Fillys out there, it's for me a whole lot to look through every time a name is needed.

Okay, I'll put together a text list (with things like "white hair" and such) to make it easier to search through. Helps to channel my enthusiasm!

>>1279108

I definitely think you're right that the Wizard relies on Battiwings for most of his movement, though why Battiwings sticks with him instead of running away is a mystery. Promised riches? Maybe the amulet around Batty's neck is cursed?

>>1279174

I hope Will's as loveable as he seems, too. People keep saying he's OCarific but honestly I think he pulls it off without being too much. Reminds me of more...

[Trying to spot Fillies]

Classmates:
- Filly with fancy orange hair: On Cedric's left in the classroom, and is in the shot with Willow at the front.
- Filly with less-fancy orange hair: Sits on Cedric's right, and is in the kick line.
- Countess Melody (?): Looks like her, but her hooves are different from her toy, so maybe she is a new character. Sits on Will's left in class, is in the kick line, and (I think) is in the end clip.
- Pony who sits on Will's right: He's white/blue in the classroom shot I assessed, but there are the glasses and bow tie and >>1276863 ta-da! Now he's the yellow/green pony! How odd! I suspect magic. A "make-cooler" spell like Al's that accidentally made him worse, perhaps? Or he got ill?

So it looks like their classmates will be involved in their adventures frequently from the start, which is nice (most of Apple Bloom's classmates don't have names and get switched out for other foals a lot).

Some others:
- Twilight is the teacher.
- The Filly whom Princess Sparkle is with before the mirror grabs her attention looks like Ashia, the mother of the Somnia unicorn family (dark purple hair, pale purple body, and white markings by the hooves).

>I hope Will's as loveable as he seems, too. People keep saying he's OCarific but honestly I think he pulls it off without being too much.
I currently think that Will in fact is more likely to be The Pinkie of the main group, as he's more energetic, more consistently upbeat (Rose has some seriously behaving moments), and if they haven't drifted too far away from the toys, pretty physical and acrobatic. Rose seems to me like she's simply the happy one.

>One I meant is this type [Shining and Cadence pic] where it's like the top right you posted but his background eye has swivelled out of its socket to peek over his snout. That's not how faces work.

I can see now that something is pretty wrong with that attempt at a camera angle, but I'm pondering more about how that snout works, to the point where I made a Paint drawing of how a pony with a snout like that would look like from the front.

>Though it would be really nice to have some confirmation from someone who knows, it's a shame they're not replying on things any more.

Considering how they had the BRB collection video in "links only" mode since the moment they posted it and that I feel sure that EqD hasn't posted about this trailer, I too think that their representant can peek out from his hiding place. But I remember from when the first trailer was new that I felt too embarassed by how little chance he had to calm down the EqD crowds that I don't have the stomach to read what he actually wrote.

Such a text list would have been much more handy if one could make an Excel or LibreOffice Calc document behave like Wikipedia lists, where you can click on a row at the top to sort things by, let's say, when a game was released on a given continent, or by how many goals the teams in a football league has scored.

Mm, maybe she's just overexcited on her first day? I wonder how much the mirrors will be like phones... Takes some charm away if too much, but at the same time I'd prefer they quickly make the level of technology clear and THINK about that sort of thing.

Yep, it's that or the right eye comes WAY forward. It's really weird, as is his head shape generally... I thought it was an animation error at first, and then I thought they'd fix it by S3 but instead they brought in more weird faces, like http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/File:Celestia_%27Far_better_than_I_have_a_student%27_S3E2.png for Celestia. Not only does her furthest eye tend to slip forward over the snout, but we're clearly looking at her from above to her right, whereas we're meant to be seeing her from her side. It's easiest to see there's a problem with the body placement if you cover her neck.
>This is the normal 3/4 face for boxy snouts.
I'm so glad these things won't happen with Fillies. We might get weird face shapes, but they'd consistently be the same type of weird.

From what I saw in an article about it, the representative was friendly and playful, and didn't get riled and start feeding the trolls. If there had been less of a crowd to crowd rather than s/he would have managed it fine, but sadly it was too much.

It would be nice if they came back.

Libre's Calc is where I started, trying to make a graph of Hair/Body colour so that it'd be easy to track fillies down based on that. Calc seems to hate images though (they just sat on top of the graph) and it would have taken a while to cut the Filly pics out.

Puk was fairy, though... The blue horn suggests he's a Somnia unicorn, but I don't know how reliable horn colour is outside of the sets.

So, theories on why nerd-horse has Cedric's body (colours and markings) in the first classroom shot? I'm guessing it relates to Al's presence, since he's at the front there and nerd-horse is involved in his story.So, theories on why nerd-horse has Cedric&#039;s body (colours and markings) in the first classroom shot?

Nice work!
Well, in general, the theories why these goofballs work together can be boiled down to three, I think:
1. They work towards a common goal. The Wizard getting enough magic back has a reward for Battiwigs as well, either riches or a transformation back or something else. Other way around works as well, maybe that thing he wears around the neck ties him to his master, perhaps he dies when the Wizard dies as well/due to not having enough magic?
2. Battiwigs genuinely likes the Wizard or is loyal enough to him to do anything he says. This would imply some shared history.
3. Battiwigs thinks the Wizard is the good guy or in the right and this is why he helps him. Perhaps they both have something against Fillies that unites them?<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1280823" onclick="return highlight('1280823', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1280823">&gt;&gt;1280823</a><br />Nice work!<br />Well, in general, the theories why these goofballs work together can be boiled down to three, I think:<br />1.

Indeed. FiM's Flash doesn't lend itself well to 3D angles or arts at all, so I imagine that Filly will be more consistent there.

>The blue horn suggests he's a Somnia unicorn, but I don't know how reliable horn colour is outside of the sets.

Several of the new character additions doesn't appear to follow the old traditions, so I think we'd have to think inside the chimney to at least get a somewhat close match.

>I think I saw Rose's mirror materialise from thin air, so they seem to be prized personal objects.
I thought that the star mirror was Rose's, since she seems to use it in the selfie scene, and I wonder if that's it in the red-magic pillar scene, and that the heart mirror was her finding someone else's. Then again, Lynn is there for the mirror scenes where it's clearly the star, so maybe it's her mirror and the selfie scene is a "did you know you could do this?" moment or such. Also, being that Rose is an Amoria unicorn ("Amor" = love) and that Lynn is Witchy, heart and star shapes respectively makes more sense.

>Several of the new character additions doesn't appear to follow the old traditions, so I think we'd have to think inside the chimney to at least get a somewhat close match.
This said, if that was Luna talking to Princess Sparkle before the mirror interrupts, it could be that we get an ep focusing around the Somnia family?

>At least we can tell by the crown in the shot that he's likely from the Princess branch. Maybe Nerd is also a prince that isn't royal enough to meet the expectations? That'd probably get him along with Cedric.

I wonder... In the swirly spell scene, Nerdy doesn't seem to be there at all, whereas the rest of the class (minus male orange-hair) and a brown Filly are? So... Maybe it's not a good time to judge what he looks like. He seems so over-the-top "stereotypical unattractive nerd" whilst at the same time heavily involved in a story about an extra-cliché handsome (magical angel) alicorn (who doesn't seem used to his wings) that I get the feeling he may be a one-shot, at least in that form. Also that he seems to be around Rose a lot (every shot we see) whilst not being a main character.

Not too worried if I'm wrong, though, I kind of like his colouring!<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1282037" onclick="return highlight('1282037', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1282037">&gt;&gt;1282037</a><br />Thanks!<br /><br />And #4 of &quot;Batti&#039;s forced to join in&quot; counts.

In the swirly spell scene, Nerdy doesn&#039;t seem to be there at all, whereas the rest of the class (minus male orange-hair) and a brown Filly are? So... Maybe it&#039;s not a good time to judge what he looks like. He seems so over-the-top &quot;stereotypical unattractive nerd&quot; whilst at the same time heavily involved in a story about an extra-cliché handsome (magical angel) alicorn (who doesn&#039;t seem used to his wings) that I get the feeling he may be a one-shot, at least in that form. Also that he seems to be around Rose a lot (every shot we see) whilst not being a main character.<br /><br />Not too worried if I&#039;m wrong, though, I kind of like his colouring!<br />

Oh, wait, just rewatched and it's Bella who summons the mirror, if we're talking about the same scene. Hm... Puzzling!

We see 5 "handheld" mirrors:
- Star mirror
- Heart mirror
- Wizard mirror
- Mirror floating by Al
- The one of those Rose is summoning magic from (just noticed that it, unlike the star mirror, has dark-tipped corners)

Speaking of Muhammed Ali-corn, I think I've spotted the reason behind the mayday fall scene he had: He is shown with a bandaged wing at least twice. The screencap I used for this pic was somewhat ambiguous, but in the "red beam flying up" scene it's visible as clear as the summer sky.

>This said, if that was Luna talking to Princess Sparkle before the mirror interrupts, it could be that we get an ep focusing around the Somnia family?

Looks pretty Ashia to me, but was it on the toy sites or the toy figure packs where Ashia and Luna was mixed up?

>>1282434

Yes, I took a look just now and it turned out to be Bella's after all. So with the Wizard trapped in what is basically a personal mobile phone, that opens up even more possibilities. How did he get trapped in the mirror, and was it the mirror's magic or the magic of a Filly? Is it Battiwigs' mirror? Or if we go to the crack theory corner: Is he only a mirror A.I. like Siri or Cortana?

>I wanna binge-watch the first season nowww!

I'm still one for weekly broadcasts. The few recent occasions where I tried binge watching (Family Guy S9/10 and the local show Hellfjord) ended up with pretty negative side-effects, including grumpiness and a feeling of the episodes getting worse over time.

I was assuming the fall caused the break, but you're right that it could go the other way...

>>This said, if that was Luna talking to Princess Sparkle before the mirror interrupts, it could be that we get an ep focusing around the Somnia family?

>Looks pretty Ashia to me, but was it on the toy sites or the toy figure packs where Ashia and Luna was mixed up?
Oh, sorry, meant Ashia! Said it right >>1279696 but not very with it today it seems, ha...

>Yes, I took a look just now and it turned out to be Bella's after all. So with the Wizard trapped in what is basically a personal mobile phone, that opens up even more possibilities.

Or if we go to the crack theory corner: Is he only a mirror A.I. like Siri or Cortana?

If it is a communication device then it's like the evil Sauron orbs in LOTR, maybe? Or more like if Sauron hacked a mobile phone system? What I mean is maybe the mirror is him breaking through to the Filly world from his rather than the mirror itself being a cursed object or prison. AI would be pretty crazy in a magical world, but I'm liking all these ideas!

It will be interesting to see where they take the mirror phone thing, like if an enchantment needs to be cast every time they're used.

Ah... Well, despite my wish I generally have trouble sitting down and watching TV for too long (after a couple of hours I normally want to do something more involving) but I've not noticed those side effects with me... Still, I guess that's one bonus for not being able to binge-watch them now: I'm looking forward to watching them gradually with others on this thread!

>Perhaps the two are related in some way? A new family group? Two unlikely already-friends?

The one who came to collect the blue gem and the one who got involved?

>Just noticed I forget the elf Fillies, so here they are!

>The brown Filly in the swirly spell looks a little like Patrick

Just noticed that the orange-haired Filly pair (who sit either side of Cedric in class) have elf ears. Goodness, the differences between the Filly types can be subtle!

First time on a chan, yay! Also analysis. RaichuWizDomCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 2528031

Hey guys, RaichuWizDom/Wise Cracker here. Been lurking around Funtasia Daily for a bit, thought I'd hop in and make myself heard.

I've got another analysis of the trailer up on my D.A. account, if anyone's interested.

http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/104/c/1/filly_funtasia__it_continues__downloadable_pdf__by_xeregon-d7efazw.pdf

The short story:
-three episode plots: cupcakes, Lynn's nightmares, treasure hunt with Al and Brainy.
-overarching season plot: five gems are lost and scattered. We've seen four so far, of which two in the clutches of the villains, only missing the pink one is missing. They match up with the Unicorn rainbow colours so far.
-Battiwigs could be a shapeshifter, and turn into the Somnia unicorn and Brainy to trap the heroes.


Also, some remarks on keeping the Fillies apart, for those who are having trouble:
-Unicorns have horns. Obviously.
-Fairy Fillies all have wings with a star-shaped pattern on their spec maps (the glitter). Also obvious.
-Witchy Fillies wear capes. Still easy to see.
-Elf Fillies have pointy ears. Kinda hard to see from afar. Their crowns also have wings, which is easier to spot, and the male Elf Fillies wear bands around their hooves. Presumably that's because otherwise they look too much like male Princess Fillies. Speaking of which...
-Princess Fillies have crowns that form full circlets, not diadems. They look like proper crowns, I mean. Might overlap with unicorn crowns, but it's hard to tell with the hair covering the way it does.

Really, the hardest ones are Elf and Princess, and the males are easy to distinguish by the armbands. For the females, just look at the crowns. Also, females have bigger eyelashes (standard) and all seem to wear jewelry around their neck.

And for my final trick, here's something else to ponder: in the first trailer, the brown Elf Filly talking about blowing stuff up is wearing a golden whistle on his neck. So the guy with the 'shoot first' attitude is most likely a gym teacher.

Yeah, this magical academy has a gym teacher. Meditate on that.

>>1283068
Ooh, some interesting analysis! I like how you thought about those storm clouds and Lynn, it fits with her bio about doubting her magic but having storms appear when angry.

Scenes:
>Swirly spell
You can see Lynn clinging on next to Cedric (mostly the orange/white of one hoof).
>Mirror background
I think there's a You Are Entering The Mirror Zone thing going on there. You can see it when Bella calls Sparkle, too.
>Will at the front
I thought they looked happy there, like Will had just come up with a good idea. Also, that frog's in the Lynn/Rose hug scene, so my theory is that the frog is a pet. Would make sense with Lynn (Witchy and all) but maybe Rose has a pet frog because why not.

Ideas:
>Battiwigs
The transforming thing is an interesting idea. I don't quite buy it for the unicorn (I think you'll get your wish that the unicorn areas are bigger in Funtasia's world), but maybe for Brainy... It over-the-top to disguise levels, and the bow tie/medallion switch isn't so bad... But then where was he in the cupcakes trailer? Maybe the unicorn, but still... I get the feeling Brainy's there for Al's ep (at least looking like that), and I'm hoping the Cedric colours weren't just an accident. Could fit with your theory, I suppose...
>Gem collection
Ooh, interesting idea! I thought the swirly-spell had a magical item, not a gem, but it could be, and the red and green do seem to be in a box of some sort... The blue gem looks like an orb though, whereas red and green don't... Speaking of transformation, why not have Brainy as Bats and Al as the Mirror? I'm guessing he's the vain sort and a better actor if need be. ...I'm probably over-thinking this now.
>Only Lynn = Ep
Seems likely!
>Lynn's first day
You've made it sound really likely, but Rose seems like the main protagonist and it's unusual to give the first day ep to another... Hm.
>Unicorn numbers
If they don't make more unicorns then it's really silly of Batty to pick that for his disguise! I expect they'll make the islands bigger than 1 family and just say "Somnia" and such are the tribe names or something.

>crowns

Is it not full crown = male and tiara = female? It's pretty clear that the male elf filly sitting next to Cedric in class has a full crown, no? Or have I misunderstood you?

>bracelets for elves

Ah, hadn't spotted the pattern for that yet, cheers!

Okay, one post, then off to Blender.

-Gosh, how did I miss that frog in the hugging scene? It might be a familiar, sure, but then Rose has to bring it along, most likely, since the frog isn't coming after Lynn when she bolts through the forest. No way that thing can keep up. Actually, maybe it's a talking frog, and that's how Rose finds out Lynn's fled.

-What I mean by the crowns is that the other designs have some irregular elements to them: you can see bands, wings sticking out, that sort of thing.

The Filly sitting next to Cedric is a male Elf Filly, it's the one all the way on the right during the kicking scene. I kind of suspected the girls have diadems and the guys have circlets, but I couldn't confirm it with the way the hair works. The point is that the crown design for Princess Fillies is more geared towards the classical Medieval designs, whereas the other races' are not. I'm talking about the crowns being round things with pointy bits sticking out (technical term).

Now, the other races also have this design, but not consistently. In the first trailer, the Fairy Filly doing the lifting has that type of crown, too. The Elf Filly sitting next to Cedric has it as well, as does the Orange Glarer. But the other members of their race (even other males, like Will) don't have it and have other means of telling their race apart from the rest, so it's not a distinguishing element for them. It is for Princess Fillies, though.

-I think I may have been misquoted on the 'first day' thing. It doesn't need to be Lynn's first day there to get in trouble, it just needs to be any day she gets in trouble. It's Rose's first day, possibly, and if she is the type who knows a lot about obscure things, maybe she knows about Witchy Fillies and that's why she's clingy.

-regarding Battiwigs donning disguises: he's called Battiwigs. Batty Wigs. Subtle, but it's there.

-Gym: well, Cedric's bio did mention tournaments, and there's concept art of a context of some description. Maybe they have a triathlon: flying with summoned wings, shapeshift into Mermaid when they hit the water, then running.

Also, yay for getting on FD again! And I really need to clean up all my usernames, it's getting silly. <a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1283150" onclick="return highlight('1283150', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1283150">&gt;&gt;1283150</a><br />Okay, one post, then off to Blender. <br /><br />-Gosh, how did I miss that frog in the hugging scene?

Okay, there's now so much I could answer to that this'll practically be limited to the most interesting conversations in a Greatest Hits style.

>>1282894

>I was assuming the fall caused the break, but you're right that it could go the other way...
I couldn't see the bandage in the fall scene, but he must have had wing problems by then still since he fell down and his wings were out of control.

>What I mean is maybe the mirror is him breaking through to the Filly world from his rather than the mirror itself being a cursed object or prison.

Maybe he's from a shadow dimension and tries to absorb the magic from a world he isn't in? That'd most certainly explain why he would need Battiwigs.

I'm surprised that you found enough material in the trailer for three-ish episode plotlines, as I had considered the trailer to be a bit too much randomly stuffed to be able to speculate on episodes.

It's also surprising for me that the vast majority of the people I get to know on the internet are either from Sweden, Britain or Belgium, whether it's on Fillychan, the rest of Ponychan, or Gmail/YouTube tasks.

When I'm in a situation where 'bronies' doesn't feel like a fitting word, or if it's discussing multiple MLP gens, I opt for 'FiM fans'. The use of 'pony geeks' made me wonder if you were talking about Brainy/Elio.

And the Breezies worked in FiM and arguably G3, right? I think the Butterflies would only need minor body changes to pull off the same feat.

>>1283164

I thought we were simply making up new pun names each time the alicorn was brought up. I could easily do more, like Ali' Baba, Allycorn or Big Straight Al (assuming he's straight). But now that we're credited for Alicornator and we've both used it before, it could be the standard name for him.

Looks pretty charismatic and with both political and personal feats, especially since he was the one to end Belgium's legendary government drought some years ago.

I wish we had 1 full Funtasia song. And some musically inclined folks to do stuff with it. I'd quite like to hear the mane theme done with orchestra, like Evening Star's stuff. New song's grown on me quite a lot (helps that they fitted the visuals in well, and those were mostly relevant to the lyrics, too), but it's still kind of generic pop. Still think Invizimals has a better theme, but I have a preference for themes that say the title, so I would think that. Either way, the new song does make it seem more modern, and I like that they're paying attention to that sort of thing.

>What I mean by the crowns is that the other designs have some irregular elements to them: you can see bands, wings sticking out, that sort of thing.

Oh, I see what you mean now! I thought you meant "proper" crowns as in non-tiaras, but you mean the famous simple look. Gotcha!

>I think I may have been misquoted on the 'first day' thing. It doesn't need to be Lynn's first day there to get in trouble, it just needs to be any day she gets in trouble.

Would be strange to have a big event including Lynn on Rose's first day... Maybe the two are separate eps, then.

Ah, I was thinking it was a nod to popular fictional Victorian names like Fezziwig, but it COULD be foreshadowing... Well spotted!

Also, I'm pretty fond of "Elio" for nerd-horse. It sounds pretty good, plus none of us seem to be headcanoning him as being brainy.

>I couldn't see the bandage in the fall scene, but he must have had wing problems by then still since he fell down and his wings were out of control.
I vote he's an alien and that's him falling out of his spaceship (not used to the amount of gravity) after he comes after his missing warp crystal (the blue gem). It's possible I'm not serious.

>It's also surprising for me that the vast majority of the people I get to know on the internet are either from Sweden, Britain or Belgium, whether it's on Fillychan, the rest of Ponychan, or Gmail/YouTube tasks.

I've noticed the Nordic countries' online presence getting a lot stronger in the last 5 years, though I'm not sure what would have caused that. And hey, I'm 1/4 Belgian!

It's not easy to see, but that's how it looks to me, with something bright in between the top and bottom.

Speaking of: What type of magic do we think they'll have? "Think it and it's done"? Incantations, Harry-Potter-style? Bella summons a mirror somehow, maybe a hoof movement? Haven't seen any wands yet, though the Witchy Fillies have them on some official stuff...

There were lots of remixes made out of Gravity Falls' ~45-second intro, so I can imagine that if there were Funtasia music remixers out there, (s)he'd have just enough material to work from.

>You mean... Lunchboxes? And I see... A weird object, with a teapot-y shape at the top. A science project? (I was thinking this linked with Will being at the front of the class.)

Ah, the lunchboxes. I completely failed to remember anything worthwhile, Google Translate didn't help, and I was moments away from guessing "food pack". Now that I look closer, and that's pretty difficult with the swirl blur, it looks like two books and a bronze kettle. Perhaps something like the "storm in a tube/(kettle)" thing I swear I saw in Totally Spies once or twice?

>Do we have a silly name for Funtasia fans yet?

I thought there was agreement around Funtasians some months ago, but that's probably the serious name. I remember campaining for Funtz back when there was no name, to prevent /mlp/ from getting to determine the final name (They were going for fillyfoolers or fillyfiddlers at that point), but that was a long time ago and only two posters catched on to it.

>I thought the G3 Breezies were a lot better than FIM's.

It's pretty easy for us G3 fans to think that, but I saw that most INEBB viewers held the FiMs as the better example, and I was pretty much playing safe.

>I vote he's an alien and that's him falling out of his spaceship (not used to the amount of gravity) after he comes after his missing warp crystal (the blue gem).

And his bandage is a secret code transmitter to his spaceship, that signals for the spaceship king, the mirror Wizard and Doctor Calico, all at once, when it is time to strike and siege all of Funtasia-Land (I can follow suit when silliness is expected).

>Also, I'm pretty fond of "Elio" for nerd-horse. It sounds pretty good, plus none of us seem to be headcanoning him as being brainy.

If he's well-spoken, it'd be the most original logic behind a fan naming I've witnessed in my internet life.

>I've noticed the Nordic countries' online presence getting a lot stronger in the last 5 years, though I'm not sure what would have caused that. And hey, I'm 1/4 Belgian!

I'd guess that Skype and PS3/X360 game chatting has gotten pretty popular, along with easier access to more English and American culture and a slightly better school, all of which leads to more opportunities to hone their English skills and to use such English wherever they are on the Internet. There seems to be two "curses" following me with whoever I befriend on the internet: They either have something on the autism spectre despite hiding it well, and/or they are from a few specific countries. Soth was pretty Swedish last time I checked, for one.

Looking through the trailer scene by scene, I think all of the Fillys (and Battiwigs) combined only have two eye colours anyway, which are blue and two shades of green that are similar enough that I count them as one, which doesn't promise well for using the eye colours as a good point.

>Maybe they have a triathlon: flying with summoned wings, shapeshift into Mermaid when they hit the water, then running.
I'd pay a fortune to be in such a triathlon, even if just for the mermaid shapeshift part. And even though I have almost zero endurance. But it's as good as any explanation for the wings.

>Actually, maybe it's a talking frog, and that's how Rose finds out Lynn's fled.

Not really, but it's a big surprise when me and another one have been good co-operative friends for more than a year, and then it turns out that Positively Pinkie has had high-functioning autism, or that the YouTube personality Dennis Fluttershy have Aspergers. Nationalities are generally figured out much more quickly, though, and Scandinavians and Brits are pretty easy for me to talk cultural references with, so that one's more of a chat benefits thing.

McGonagall was the one that could transform into a black cat, right? If so, it's definitely her.

I remember now that Will referred to "Who in Funtasia (...)" as a country or world in the first trailer, but we haven't heard the term for Funtasia's citizens yet. If it turns out to be "Funtasians", then I think we could try to figure out an alternate name.

"You may have spiky hair and lots of powers, Brolies, but I'll blast you back to the early manga with my Super Saiyan x6 powers!". I only know the basics about Dragonball (and Z), so I'm probably not the best joke teller.

Not a good sign.

Mental conditions/disorders/etc tend to be just more pronounced versions of normal things, so I don't really consider it a major thing unless it's really at the high end (some people with autism never learn to speak, even through sign language).

Tabby, I think. In the classroom scene, at least.

Maybe "indigo" is more what I meant? I'd say they're certainly more purple than the icy blue others have.

Now that I looked at the collage again about 20 minutes before writing this paragraph, it's starting to look purple/indigo to me too, but it looked blue when I capped the trailer. I have a history with minor problems determining shades of blue, as I consider turquoise to be a shade of blue, instead of as a shade of green as the rest of my family thinks.

>Tabby, I think.

Now that I looked up the Philosopher's Stone book on Wikipedia, I'm pretty sure now that it was McGonagall. It's been a long while since I watched the movies, even longer so since I watched the early ones in English, so my memory is very far from crisp.

>so I don't really consider it a major thing unless it's really at the high end (some people with autism never learn to speak, even through sign language).

I spent seven years at special learning facilities aimed at pupils with autism bad enough to not function in normal schools even with accomodation, as I was considered an autist at the time I got a spot there (Now it's considered a really-difficult-to-accomodate-for Aspergers with depressions), and so the vast majority of the other pupils at the facility were of the very-high-end kind, so I think I have more experience than most. Out of about twenty, I think five were at the never-speaking tier.

>Ah, the direction the hair goes is actually set in Funtasia (unlike FIM)!

FiM's animation very often got away with mirroring the character art when they needed to show their other sides. With the Fillys, it's much more important to use the actual other sides of the characters.

(Gosh, this place is going to supplant FimFiction as my addiction, isn't it?)

The hair in Fim does change sides depending on what looks better, not what's more accurate. Ditto on facial angles.

From what I can tell, though, the Filly hair is a mesh with a softbody simulation running on it. In the first trailer, if you pay attention to the blue teacher filly with the long hair, you can see the hair falling down his sides. If it is a simulation with the rest of the model set as rigid bodies, then that would mean Filly hair is always going to act in the same manner, regardless of what the rig is doing. On the flip side, simulations are a lot harder to control and set up properly, and they eat up resources like crazy. At least it's not particle hair... they're saving that for the movie, lol.

Also, I hope our Blondicorn's real name turns out to be something badass. Or silly. <a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1287323" onclick="return highlight('1287323', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1287323">&gt;&gt;1287323</a><br />(Gosh, this place is going to supplant FimFiction as my addiction, isn&#039;t it?)<br /><br />The hair in Fim does change sides depending on what looks better, not what&#039;s more accurate.

It seems to aim at being a toysite summary of Filly Funtasia from an unknown narrative, but can't possibly be so, and some help from a German-speaker who can tell me what the text is trying to convey would be a good thing.

Even with very little use of Google Translate, it seems to explain the setting behind the show and then summarise how the merch for the show will progress. The setting part gets the vast majority right, but cites Romeo, Leaf and Cordelia(?) as Rose's friends. The merch part, which is pretty long, gets nearly revolutionary with "Filly Funtasia DVD Staffel 1 und 2 freuen" (Filly Funtasia DVD "staff" 1 and 2, "please"), then gets increasingly stranger and stranger with things like "Kinofilm" (cinema movie), and all imaginable kinds of "Bücher" (books), and then rounds it off bad enough that I can't believe that anything in it is true with Lego and Fisher Price sets and "Filly Funtasia Nintendo DS oder Nintendo Wii Spiele geben.", which doesn't really need a translation.

Details on hair animation methods are a tiny bit outside of my knowledge area, but the manes appear to me to be one whole structure, with no hair behaving really differently from the rest, so it has to be a structure of some kind.

Not a native German speaker, but I know enough to say this:

what you have there is an online toy shop making speculations about what might, could (könnte), possibly (vielleicht) be made in terms of merchandising based on the show. The stuff about Lego and Playmobil and the like is put in the conditional sense, as in "wouldn't it be neat if..." and the cinema movie is presented as a possibility/inevitability, not an ongoing project.

And then they say "And right now you can buy this stuff in our online store (click here)". There's no sources cited, no real facts stated, it's pretty much all as valid as what we've been discussing. Take it with a grain of salt ^^.

On the hair: my guess is it's a separate mesh from the body, since that makes it easier to link actions to it. It's how I'm making mine, at least. Although... yeah, it needs to be a separate mesh, otherwise they can't transfer blend shapes afterwards. Ie: if they decide to make a super deformed smile, they'd have to make that a shape for the body. Since the hairstyles clearly don't all have the same topology and vertex count, they'd have to either keep the body and hair meshes separate or move that shape onto all the bodies one at a time. If they keep the body meshes unique per character but replicated, then they can transfer blend shapes from the standard to the characters and update them all with simple copy-paste workflow. Still unwieldy for a big cast, but decidedly better option. <a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1287494" onclick="return highlight('1287494', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1287494">&gt;&gt;1287494</a><br />Not a native German speaker, but I know enough to say this:<br /><br />what you have there is an online toy shop making speculations about what might, could (könnte), possibly (vielleicht) be made in terms of merchandising based on the show.

> I consider turquoise to be a shade of blue, instead of as a shade of green as the rest of my family thinks.
It's an in-between colour. People will argue either way, and sometimes be able to confuse themselves by seeing both.

Did you know that "orange" wasn't recorded as a colour name until the 1500s? Before that it was a word meaning "yellow-red" that was used, so. What people see as "separate" colours can change over time. My colour vision's about perfect and I can see turquoise as both green and blue, though sometimes my definition of "definitely orange" overlaps with other people's definition of "definitely yellow".

Sounds like this is a talking point along with the non-USian thing! And I was applying to volunteer at a school for children at the high end of the spectrum, so I had to learn more about it for that, plus I got an interview (though sadly they never got back to me and I wasn't knowledgeable enough at the time to know that everyone needs to be chased up).

I don't know that they "get away" with it, they just used it right from the start. It works okay, but it's just one of a number of new challenges I've realised when drawing Fillies as opposed to FIM ponies. New head shapes, new eye proportions, different limb simplifications, harder to pinpoint the colours, more subtle hair styles, Rose has specific flower positioning that I should look into sometime, and if I want to try realistic shading then I'll have to be GOOD to compare at all to the official show. I should possibly come up with a better method for simplifying the crowns but... Eh.

Ah, 3D animation is something I'd like to learn more about but have yet to. It's a fast-moving industry though, no? How would you say Funtasia's new trailer compares to other things out now? I thought the first trailer compared pretty well to HTTYD's spinoff series' first season (not S2, but a lot of funding obviously got given to that, quite possibly for the film's upcoming sequel).

So... Rose's family is moving to Funtasia, that's why she's new?

This person's even more optimistic than us!

Filly/Lego would be a better match than Hasbro/Lego...

I wonder if the MyFilly site will get a makeover before the series starts? It's not horrible but it could be a lot better, and personally I would change that if I were behind a new series.<a href="http://www.ponychan.net/chan/gala/res/1017058.html#1287323" onclick="return highlight('1287323', true);" class="ref|gala|1017058|1287323">&gt;&gt;1287323</a><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt; I consider turquoise to be a shade of blue, instead of as a shade of green as the rest of my family thinks.</span><br />It&#039;s an in-between colour. People will argue either way, and sometimes be able to confuse themselves by seeing both.<br /><br />Did you know that &quot;orange&quot; wasn&#039;t recorded as a colour name until the 1500s? Before that it was a word meaning &quot;yellow-red&quot; that was used, so. What people see as &quot;separate&quot; colours can change over time. My colour vision&#039;s about perfect and I can see turquoise as both green and blue, though sometimes my definition of &quot;definitely orange&quot; overlaps with other people&#039;s definition of &quot;definitely yellow&quot;.<br /><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;McGonagall.</span><br /><a rel="nofollow" class="externallink" href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJLpssiYcqI">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJLpssiYcqI</a><br /><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;&gt;so I don&#039;t really consider it a major thing unless it&#039;s really at the high end (some people with autism never learn to speak, even through sign language).</span><br /><span class="unkfunc">&gt;I spent seven years at special learning facilities aimed at pupils with autism bad enough to not function in normal schools</span><br />Sounds like this is a talking point along with the
