The main satirical idea of that episode is to poke fun at Twilicorn, which was fresh on the palate of the fandom when I made my list of "wish-list" plots. Rather than have the characters directly talk about Twilight's increase in prominence and power (a meta-textual feature which they would be oblivious to anyway), make them play a role-playing game where they watch the unfolding of events from the same perspective that the audience does. The MMDW throwback is an added benefit. I also thought the idea of a magical character getting preoccupied with fake magic would be funny and have transference for simulators/role playing in real life.

Also, whenever I write for MLP characters I tend to make them assholes to each other for some reason.

Season 6
The season's theme is "Explore Equestria".
Episode title: Flutter Brutter. Definitely the episode where Fluttershy's brother makes an appearance. Expected to air early in the season, at least before June 7th.
A picture was shown of Pinkie, Rainbow Dash, and Maud at Manehattan. Very likely an actual screencap.
What was reported from Toy Fair 2016:
>During the Toy Fair 2016 closed door press event, a new season 6 animatic with a griffon named Gabby was revealed. It was strongly hinted that griffons could get cutie marks, and the episode revolves around that.
>And joining her, there were apparently some new dragon chracters in the slide. We heard rumors they were Hearthswarming based, but can't confirm that. One looked female.
>New Hearthswarming Episode Song Details:
>Background ponies team up with mane 6 to decorate>Derpy dropped some boxes, annoyed Rarity, plopped a Christmas star on her head, then hid in a tree branch
>All the mane 6 and CMC Sing
>Christmas dragons
Chiara Zanni, VA of Daring Do, has said that she recorded an episode back in July.
John de Lancie was involved in recording at least one episode, and that seems likely to be a two parter.

The Problem with Pinkie Pie ChocolateCrane!nGGHowUMN. 36820916[View]

What the bloody hell happened to poor Pinkie Pie?

She used to be my favorite pony... but ever since season 2 the writers turned her into a shrieking, psychopathic, vexation of the spirit. And this has been a consistent problem throughout every season thus far. The only moment I can recall where Pinkie acted like the Pinkie I knew and loved once again was in the episode Hearth's Warming Tail during her song Pinkie's Present. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DJbjw5LaLA&feature=youtu.be&t=7s

Would anyone care to explain how flanderization THIS bad can go unchecked for soooo long? It seriously makes a tear come to my eyes when I think how my favorite character from my favorite currently airing cartoon was mutilated to the point where she is my least favorite character T^T (even worse than Rarity; I know, it's a scary thought o.o)

That's...um, not really screeching. And again, it's only a single scene out of the entire episode, so not really a big deal.

And those comparisons are....ehh? I'm really not seeing what's so bad about the 5th, 7th and 8th videos there.

I'm talking about stuff like Filli Vanilli, where she seems to exist for no purpose other than to screech and make jokes. That kind of writing has carried over into a few other episodes, with her either screeching for no reason, or bringing the episode to a halt just to make a really drawn-out joke. I believe the term "Pinkie joke time" was coined for whenever the story comes to a grinding halt so she can make a joke.

Blame bronies and their dumb memes


File: 1472457810723.png (69.1 KB, 204x247, sweetie606.png)

Let's see...
In video 5, we see Pinkie being completely oblivious to the fact her actions are annoying Rainbow. She's going quite overboard. This is exactly what we also see her doing in the 3rd video, Twilight's Welcome party, Season 1, Episode 1.

In the 6th clip, she is attempting to use a song to change the audience's mood. Her song is quite silly, as he target audience is one month old, incapable of speech and will only respond to visuals and melody. I am reminded of Best Night Ever, where Pinkie also used an inappropriate song to change the mood of her audience.

I'm not sure what we're supposed to look at in the 7th clip, which is actually a Fluttershy clip. Pinkie does three things in it: a visual gag with her neck, claim that Rarity's fashion is her passion, and cry. Pinkie has many visual gags in Season 1, such as riding a pony (I believe Fluttershy) while the Diamond Dogs were pulling them underground, or hiding in a bowl of sponges. Fashion IS Rarity's passion and Fluttershy was quite mean, prompting tears. I fail to see the intention of this clip.

In the 8th clip, we see Pinkie being ridiculous, playing fortune teller. I guess she had some free time today that she didn't spend sniffing flowers or rolling in the grass. To be honest, I suspect this clip might be a response to Friendship is Witchcraft, which cast Pinkie as a gypsy. Even if such, I do not believe it is an appropriate example of a sub par Pinkie experience.

I will not try to claim Pinkie's character hasn't deteriorated, but I do not believe the clips you selected showed a definitive contrast.

>Stranger than fan fiction (THANK GOD we got a good dash episode this season)

I was really surprised that Stranger Than Fan Fiction turned out as good as it did. I was expecting some really awful fan-pandering based on the title.

Personally, I think it is the best Daring Do episode we have had up until this point.



>I can't even...

You think Flutter Brutter is good!? o.0 I'll admit, it had surprisingly high attention to detail in regard to the interior design of Fluttershy's parents' house (I like seeing the animators actually TRYING to captivate their audience every once in awhile), and, I guess FS's parents were pretty well conceived to boot... but pretty much everything else was either blatant flanderization, poorly implemented plot devices, or just plain "meh".
Even FS's brother, whom I initially felt quite a fondness for, was played into the ground as a completely one-note character by the half way point.

On another note, it would've been cool to actually hear SOMTHING about FS having a brother in the 100+ episodes that came beforehand... The way he just came out of nowhere, and suddenly all the mane 6 are apparently familiar with him just feels contrived as all hell.

Seasonal Progression Of Friendship is Magic ChocolateCrane!nGGHowUMN. 36820782[View]

As a callback to an old topic that I started on a hentai image board a few months ago (for whatever reason lol) I would like to gather the opinions of a more "appropriate" community (relating to the subject matter, at least; I know the lot of you are sick motherfuckers ;3) on the progression of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

Something I've noticed is, during season 1, the series was very relaxed. Character interactions felt genuine, and mostly everything was very low on the scale of "importance". In season 2, the writers were fully aware of the older demographic the show attracted, and became obsessed with catering to them almost exclusively. The fan pandering was duly noted by the fandom, however, and most fans felt the series lost its innocence as well as its genuineness, as did I. Not only had everything become tryhard and over-the-top, but they did a BAD job implementing these risky ideas as well.

After the show came back from hiatus, season 3 seemed like a return to form for the series. There was much less cringe-worthy nonsense, and character interactions didn't feel quite as forced. The animation quality got a bump, as it did in season 2 (the 2nd season's bump was really more in regard to new vector animations and facial expressions for the each of the characters, while season 3's concentrated more on diversifying the color palette, as well as smoothing out said animations). All this was great, of course, however, season 3 was only 13 episodes long, which led many to fear the series may have been on its way out.

To fill the large gap between season 3 and 4, Dhx (the studio behind MLP: FIM) created a new IP based on the MLP universe"Equestria Girls". It was clearly a marketing ploy by Hasbro in order to get their dwindling delicious loli demographic to buy more toys, since, in Equestria Girls all the main characters are transformed into high school girls (besides Spike ofc. He gets demoted to a dog lol), and lets be honest, whats more marketable to little girls than cute Barbie doll-esque characters they can dress up? So yeah, it was supposedly non-canonical to the main series, but that didn't stop bronies the world over from threatening to commit suicide. *rolls eyes*

Equestria Girls was pretty fucking shitty. Thankfully they VASTLY improved upon the 2 sequels which came out years later.

Anyway, season 4 finally came to fruition, and right off the bat from the first episode, you could tell they we

>Maybe some of the animators caught wind up "Cupcakes" in that time period and proceeded to make subtle references to it when time came about to animate.
The episodes were mainly finished. The only adjustments they could make would be to adjust Derpy's eyes in the second half of the season's episodes, without changing how the scene actually played out. The assets are decided before animation begins, so they wouldn't be able to request new things like the splotchy backgrounds, and even something like Pinkie's twitches and going crazy eyed wouldn't have been able to fit because unlike adjusting Derpy's eyes in the background, the timing of the scene changes. A second for each twitch to happen, several seconds of her eyes going derp eyed. Might not seem like much, but all the episodes are made to be 22 minutes long give or take only 1 second, meaning they plan these scenes out by the second before hand.

Who Was Worse In Dragonshy: Fluttershy or Rainbow Dash Anonymous 36820293[View]

In the episode, Dragonshy, Fluttershy was revealed to have a phobia of dragons despite her special talent involving animals. As a result, Fluttershy panicked throughout the journey to prevent a dragon from covering Equestria with smoke from his snores. She delayed the trip by not flying when she otherwise could, she got stuck between a small gap, caused an avalanche, and knocked some of the other mane 6 down a steep slope.

Rainbow Dash was irritated by Fluttershy in this episode, frequently stating her disapproval of bring Fluttershy along and making derisive comments about her. She reacted to Fluttershy's behavior with glares, sarcasm, and complaining, and only when Fluttershy managed to convince the dragon to fly somewhere else did she give her respect to Fluttershy.

There arre two camps who have opposite perspectives on the Fluttershy-Rainbow Dash relationship in this episode. Some feel Fluttershy was too annoying in her cowardice and delaying the trip, while others feel Rainbow Dash was too harsh on the timid pegasus.

I just wanted to know which character bothered you more in Dragonshy. Was Fluttershy too much of a scaredy pony? Or was Rainbow Dash such a rude, insensitive so called "friend" to Fluttershy?

FS is a generally cowardly pony with a specific dragon phobia. RD is a brash, pushy pony who has little patience with the cautious. These traits are core parts of their personalities. The conflict in this episode follows inexorably. Nopony was "worse."

ChocolateCrane!nGGHowUMN. 36820806

I think both Yellowquiet AND Rainbow Dash exhibited their own personality traits in a manner that I cannot describe in any other way besides "perfection".

While the episode in and of itself was rather boring (other than that epic conclusion, of course), I found myself REALLY enjoying both FS and RBD's characterizations as well as the juxtaposition their polarizing character traits created.

I personally have no issue with characterizations that are "not likeable", as long as they are well executed, I will likely be satisfied. ^^

The writers probably just had no reason for them to talk in previous episodes, since there was nothing for them to add that Chrysalis couldn't just say herself, so they didn't bother to give them lines.

sad I wanted to see lines from them similar how henchman talk to each other in superhero comics

I finally watched the episode. I didn't like it. It reminded me of the one where Pinkie was trying to keep a secret because we all knew exactly what path it was taking. It also ignored the Season 1 lesson of don't prank Fluttershy, like the other episode ignored that Pinkie can keep a secret.

And Applebloom failed at trees? What's up with that? She lives with trees.

The infants were kind of creepy. Nice of them to go along with the whole prank.

They probably just painted their mouths rainbow with the cookies and let them loose; little kids act like zombies no matter what's going on.

I hope so. I'm really hoping they're not going to try and make all of the movie's music by Sia

then let's hope Ingram hasn't burned out on ideas for this show. He's certainly the only one I still hold any hope for on the show staff.

Only two songs, but then again they should have hired someone not from a cheap Canadian preschooler toy cartoon nobody watches

>But they use fireflies.

That was more a past thing, they've gone more and more with contemporary tech as things go on for plot purposes.
The firefly ones of the past normally would have the insect sillouttes in them.

I may be wrong, yeah, I'm not saying I'm 100% sure here. But I don't think that's a firefly lantern, even if things don't go the way I think they will.

Nother Nonymous 36820373

If it were a harmless firefly lantern, the camera wouldn't be focusing on it so intensely.

Unlikeable pony 36820374

That's my thoughts too :)

Show interest Nother Nonymous 36820337[View]

The internet buzz surrounding the show has flagged, and the Google search term "My Little Pony" has fallen to 64% of its all-time peak in December 2013. Yeah, but it's still way ahead of Jesus Christ (pic).

Notice the recurring M-shaped double peak in the "Jesus Christ" curve on Google Trends. The peaks coincide with Christmas and Easter.

you can't come compere them to CN, nick & disney channelshare but you can compere discovery family to boomerang, nicktoons, disney XD who also need extra money to get in most cable packages like discovery family and those 3 seem to be doing better despite being in a similar scenario to discovery family

Still not really similar, seeing as all of those are just offshoots of the parent channel, and are automatically more popular just because of brand recognition. That and, they mostly play things that are already well known and loved.

Discovery is not known for being a cartoon channel. Hell, only half of it is cartoons, the other half is...whatever Discovery airs.

Anonymous 36820365

you can make that argument for boomerang & nicktoons but disney XD is mostly things made specially for that network now the only disney channel things it airs now are a few disney channel original movies here and there

and your right about discovery actually infact if you ignore the hasbro side for a second there basically are at the same place they were before the HUB in some ways
