Daring Do Adventure Collection Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36825557[View]

Super curious, has anyone read the Daring Do books? Because I read them. And I want to discuss them. (Since people I know online have not read them) Also, please do not say "WHUT IZ THAT" because this topic is not for you.

Everything I've heard about the books are that they're really, really dumbed down and child-friendly. And GM Berrow's episodes for the show were also very awkwardly written compared to other writers, so I've avoided the books.

I actually think they're pretty good honestly.
The first one's a little hokey in having a villain who's "not really a villain, just going through a bad time" more or less, but I did enjoy his motivation, of being unhinged because his cutie mark got mutilated.


>>36825557
I liked 1 and 3, but found the second to be the weakest of them. it was basically just a blatant last crusade rip off, and not much more to it.
it also SERIOUSLY showed how terrible of a villain Azuihotl is. He's basically a giant raging Child. He has brute strength in comparison to a pony, but in the actual context of the world, his brute strength is small shit. Dragons and other bigger things easily outrank him, and he has no magic that I can see, which easily trumps him.
He's also INCREDIBLY stupid, behaving self destructively and only avoiding death due to having someone to actually do the thinking for him along for the ride. Not to mention he lacks the charisma of dr. cabelleron.

the third was slower paced, but made up for it by setting up an arc and world building. I enjoyed how they were going for an overarching meta-arc of multiple artifacts needing to be Found. Hilariously, the MANE SIX seem like small shit compared to the cabal of magical unicorns doing shit in the world, given how little they've done (apart from twilight) since losing the elements.



On a random note, is it just me, or do the books try and tease daring do and cabelleron as a couple with some of the flirting remarks? it kind of comes off as them trying to portray cabelleron less as a villain (with Azuihotl and other ponies instead taking that role) with him being more the "antagonist that ends up teaming up with the hero every now and then" thing since the book mentions daring do and him having worked together in bad circumstances befor.

Well, whatever embarrasses you, I guess. If you can recommend Twinkle Wish Adventure to an adult with a straight face, you've got more balls than I have. And if you can't honestly recommend G4 to an adult, what are you doing here?

Sherri Stoner's other writing credits are for Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs, The Spooktacular New Adventures of Casper, and My Favorite Martian. Not everything in that list is an embarrassment, but it doesn't stack up to Bonsignore's creds.

Yeah, and many of the articles pointed out "adult jokes that would go over kids' heads".....yet the one they pointed to, I'm having trouble understanding how it's supposed to be an adult joke.

Hanazuki jumps into a mouth or something and comes out of another mouth like a portal, and then says something like "well that could have gone worse"

...am I missing something, because I fail to see how this is adult humor.

But yeah, it's kinda trying to copy the same general things that people praised FIM for, but you can't just forcefully create another phenomenon like that.

>ITT: character design thread/rant

I really liked Changelings but their new designs just are ugly. There's no real color harmony with them.

Take Thorax's design for example. His main body are varying shades of green with a gradient orange where his neck connects with his chestplate. It doesn't look very good since green and orange are neither complimentary colors or analogous. You have to hop the color wheel by one color (yellow) to reach orange.

He has horns (pincers?) that are orange as are the under-ear portions on his head. I'd be for the color unity of it if not for the purple carapace and wings. The eyes are fine since they're meant to stand out, not many ponies have had irises that match their general color scheme before like Pinkie Pie and purple does pair well with orange or green.

But that much purple meshed into his design just ruins what tenuous color balance is happening there. It's a battle of hot colors (the bright green and the orange) fighting with the cool colors (purple/blue) which just makes it offputting.

It's such a damn shame because the simpler designs of the love-eating Changelings are so good. The black holey bodies with the turquoise eyes and matching ripped-looking wings feels like it was designed by someone who had a proper idea of color and good combinations. Even Queen Chrysalis looks good because the green elements to her design nicely pair with the green-blue and black already present in the overall Changeling design aesthetic.

>>36825277
>near constantly
They were used only 4 times in the comics (not counting any cameos), and even then when they were used I think it was more due to what the executives and other higher ups wanted rather than the writers wanting to write stories with the changeling. I remember hearing that the first two story arcs it was Hasbro who either suggested or mandated that they use the changelings and Nightmare Moon in some way, Chrysalis would of course be included in a villain's special month so it's more due to the latter that the former got involved, the villain team up in Siege of the Crystal Empire was mandated by IDW management and the changelings would've been the only actual villains that were available to use besides Sombra, and the Guardians of Harmony comic was created since Hasbro wanted tie-ins that would promote their new toyline and the changelings were part of the toyline that needed to be promoted.

So I don't think the comic writers or the show writers really had much plans to use them as frequent antagonists. I mean usually if the plot calls for some sort of confrontation that involves danger they'd just use a random monster like the tatzlwurm or those quarry eels. Recurring antagonists in more adventurous episodes are probably only recurring because they fit the situation. Garble is a dragon so he'd appear in episodes taking place in dragon lands, Ahuizotl and Cabelleron are arch enemies of Daring Do so they'd naturally show up in Daring Do stories are expected to have some sort of villain. Even if the show did more adventure episodes, changelings probably wouldn't naturally fit in with the story unless you try to shoehorn them in as if they were Team Rocket in the Pokemon anime, and doing that is just taking time away that could be used for the actual episode.

the synopsis says that Starlight is CALLED to fix a friendship problem.

You only get "called" to fix a problem if you're linked to the map with your cutie mark and have a Throne.

Starlight might end up getting a chair and connection to the Map/throneroom in the next few episodes.

But the synopsis doesn't use the word "call".

My guess is that Twilight hears about the sisters problem and comes up with the idea to have Starlight go over there to try and fix it, with the map only factoring in because it gave Twilight the idea that after learning about friendship one should use that knowledge to help others with problems.

Yeah this. The synopsis makes it sound like AJ being impartial is gunna be the problem, which really worries me cuz It'd put me in the same position I was in on sunday where the moral just didn't jive with me. Like really? Rarity is gunna straight up ask for impartial advice, AJ will provide, and AJ will be the bad guy? Man, I sure hope that synopsis is followed up with "but then Rarity learns that asking for constructive feedback is the worst way to fish for compliments, especially when they're in a position where they really, reeeaaallly need to be impartial..." by the end.

Seeing as how the Treehouse schedule is legit, how do you guys want to handle spoilers.

Keep the sunday episode as a spoiler for until the regular air date or just treat it as a regular episode?
I know at least one guy will be trying to avoid spoilers until the 'official' air date so i figured it would be prudent to settle the issue.

Barneyfag would post in boards outside of /mlp/, any time he saw any image even tangentially related to the show. Responding with the usual image, alongside cries of "kill yourself barneyfag" and other such edgy internet insults.

But these days, it's not one person, the whole "barneyfag" thing has become a meme, and anyone can pose as him.

Actually looking forward to this. I know alot of people dislike shadowlock, but I'm actually really digging this arc.

the only thing is, with just 1 comic left, I know its going to be rushed as fuck >.<

This needed to be like a 6 comic long arc IMO.

Playing Catch-Up Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36824816[View]

So I haven't touched the series much since Season 3, not because I disliked Princess Twilight, but because I moved back home and not too open about being a fan of the show (family loves to dwell on things that are easy to make fun of. Just ask my gay cousin).

So I finally got to marathon through the series and so far it's gotten pretty dang good!

Season 3 is probably the weakest because it's so short. Twilight's Ascension never bothered me as much as others, though I admit it felt a bit rushed and the purpose of how and why it happened could have been explained/showed a bit better. And despite what the show makers say, I include Equestria Girls as canon since it fits in rather nicely with the rest of the story...it also helps to make Season 3 feel longer.

Season 4 has to be my favorite so far. It has the best continuity, the best stories, and some (but not all) the best songs (You'll Play Your Part is easily my favorite song). Not to mention I think that the way it ended would have been a perfect series finale if it didn't continue.

Season 5 was a lot of fun, but I felt that it lacked the same...oomph that Season 4 had, though that might just be because that Tirek fight was so awesome. The one thing I'm a little irritated by is that the Crusader's Cutie Mark episode felt as rushed as Twilight's Ascension episode was. It should have been saved as the second-to-last episode of the season at the very least, and given at least one or two more episodes of them helping to discover the meaning of other marks before they accepted it as what they'd like to do. As for Starlight Glimmer, I don't mind her joining the cast to make it the Mane 7, so long as she actually grows in character.

I will say this, though. I appreciate that the show is taking the risk of actually continuing the stories and advancing the lives of the characters. Unlike some shows where everyone and everything is in the exact same place ten seasons after the start. It oddly enough gives a sense of maturity to the series as it goes on. Looking forward to catching up on Season 6 and finally getting to watch Season 7.

A few things that I'm still hoping for:

- The Crusaders doing some of their Mark Purpose thing (maybe with Babs showing up again. I liked her)

Yeah, I'd like to see some more episodes about them either A. as a group helping out some more ponies with their cutie marks (like with tender taps) or developing what their cutie marks represent for them INDIVIDUALLY in addition to helping others with cutie marks (like how sweetie has a music mark for example)

IMO most of the episodes after season 5 are either mediocre, boring episodes or rather enjoyable gems.
There is a surprising lack of episodes that are inbetween of that.

Spinoff question: if ponies have only two fingers and two toes, why don't they count base 2 or base 4? Or do they? Do we have proof that they count base 10?

No, it's because they think it doesn't apply to them just as well because their brand of socialism fucks people over in a slightly different manner. Didn't believe I'd finally admit it someday, but I'd settle for old /pol/ now that I've had to endure nu/pol/ metastasising everywhere for several years.

/pol/ was cancer since its inception.
You've got to go back to the bush era before older folk making fun of racists or using it for shock value get replaced with new folk who thought "double-nigger" was an actual insult.

I suppose any community that gets its laughs by pretending to be idiots eventually gets filled with actual idiots.

Offtopic is kinda bad and this is definitely the wrong board for it, but here I go.

>/pol/ was cancer since its inception.
Wasn't arguing the opposite. Read that post again. Just that at this point I'd rather take the old failed containment board over this out of control disaster. /new/ was a mistake and /pol/ just capitalized on it.
I miss the time when real-world politics were in general considered lame and anti-fun OTI.

>You've got to go back to the bush era before older folk making fun of racists or using it for shock value get replaced with new folk who thought "double-nigger" was an actual insult.

All this obsession with racism thing will never not feel weird to me because I grew up in a fucking ex-commie shithole where kids were taught that all people are brothers and so on. And, speaking of which, I laughed at Dubya and other retarded "white" politics (mostly locals, too) far more than at any and all people of different ethnicities.

>I suppose any community that gets its laughs by pretending to be idiots eventually gets filled with actual idiots.

And yet no matter how often this is repeated the proliferation of idiocy on AIBs only gets worse. I'll be in my fucking cave under my fucking rock.

It was pretty awkward. I also skipped most of the middle, though it was cool that pretty much everyone caught on to the act and just went with it for Mac and Bloom's sake. The ending with Mac actually talking was probably the best part, though. I actually got a few chills hearing him finally speak so much, and so heartfelt about it too. It was nice.

Season vs. Season 4 (Episodes 2 and 3) Xylon!l7.O6DCdPwCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36824767[View]

So as I discussed before, this one is going to be a bit odd, as All Bottled Up is the first Episode Two that wasn't the second part of a two-part premiere. As such, so it didn't go up against all the other premieres, I'm putting it here, just like I do with Party of One and the other Episode 24s of the series. So let's see what we have this time:

Season 1: The Ticket Master
Season 2: Lesson Zero
Season 3: Too Many Pinkie Pies
Season 4: Castle Mane-ia
Season 5: Castle Sweet Castle
Season 6: Gift of the Maud Pie
Season 7-2: All Bottled Up
Season 7-3: A Flurry of Emotions

So many episodes to compare! It's a bit overwhelming! Plus I feel like a bunch of the episodes are of similar quality. I'm going to go with this:

Lesson Zero > Castle Sweet Castle > All Bottled Up > Castle Mane-ia > Gift of the Maud Pie > Too Many Pinkie Pies > The Ticket Master > A Flurry of Emotions
