So, what I find strange is that the toys were all related to the "Rainbow roadtrip" special in the summer and the old G4 movie, there's not a single toy related to S9.

Like, what gives? (on that note, kind of hesitant about the rainbow roadtrip special-- especially since the toy for twilight basically looks to be "Hey, twilight just stole Dash's "I'm rainbow colored!" schtick.)

Damned. that hits right in the heart. Really looks to be closing on an emotional note.

That being said, I still dislike sombra's Soldier's helmets. They don't look "right"-- The design is mad max/Fallout raider like, it should be more low key and less, I don't know, "fuzzy hair and spikes"?

The slow music is overly corny, and I kinda hoped they’d stay away from the obvious end game of Celly and Luna retiring.

At least hand it off to Cadence and Twilight, not the mane 6. That at least would have been more logical and given a solid basis for making them Princesses.

At least they're doing some ongoing stuff with the Villain teamup, though I have a feeling this might undercut Grogar as a threat if he's constantly getting his plans fucked up due to incompetent minions (while having to RELY on said incompetent minions).

>Alot of Student six stuff... not really liking this direction.
I like at least a few of the student six. Like Smolder. I thought her and Spike's interactions were the more interesting parts of Father Knows Beast and would've honestly preferred an episode on those two instead of Spike and Sludge, so Sweet and Smoky sounds good to me. Inclusion of Fluttershy makes sense too, since it could give some finality to her dragon phobia (plus she likes baby dragons).

Unlikeable ponyCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830067

>>36830042
Ironically, I'm actually more interested in the Yona/sandbar one, since Yona's about the only one of the six I enjoy.

I kind of get the feeling the Dragon one will end up having the same plot as the book they released a few years ago with fluttershy, where they end up having to hug the dragon eggs to get them to hatch. And that book was... kind of meh.

>>36830034
So now we've got a better idea on how this might work after seeing the premiere. I actually wonder if this might be something similar to The Beach from Avatar The Last Airbender as a villain episode where they bond and learn about each other. Maybe even get some flashbacks and deeper look into why Chrysalis, Tirek, and Cozy are the way they are (like actually getting to see Scorpan in a Tirek flashback).

Maybe, but I can't see him getting them to go on a team building excercise without some "actual" purpose behind it that he could disguise it as.

>>36830089
Why not? He seems pretty clear and direct on his objective, get the villains to work together so that they can take over Equesteria. The guy's powerful enough that I think the only other thing he needs was the bell that Gusty took from him, but if the bell comes into play I bet it'd be in the finale.

Probably the inciting incident will be us starting out the episode checking in on Grogar and his legion just to show how Tirek and Chrysalis can't get along (and don't act well towards Cozy despite her efforts) so annoyed at their behavior he demands that the three learn to get along for his plan to work.

Cozy's so utterly fake in her emotions though that it'd actually speak AGAINST their intellect to trust her :p

>>36830190
It's less a question about what can be kept as a pet but more of how it can be done in a reasonable manner.

If Pinkie had an alligator it would have to be kept in a big enclosure - or the show would promote bad animal care habits.

So, it's more than reasonable showing him as merely a stuffed animal.

My kingdom for a Danganronpa or Ace Attorney style trial episode.

Cyan Hide !YDuRgiNpKsCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830228

I have a little wishlist:

>Starlight, Trixie and Maud episode focusing on Trixie and Maud not getting along very well (kind of the opposite of uncommon bond)


>Bodyswap episode (I really just want to hear the VAs do impressions of each other for an entire episode.)


>Blueblood episode


>More Babs Seed


>More reformed Diamond Tiara


>Spike officially gets over Rarity


>Each member of the student six gets an episode each fully focusing on them. Gallus' has Gilda and Gabby return in speaking roles. We also get to learn who Sandbar is and learn anything about him this way.


>Zecora/Zebrica episode and her origin

Cyan Hide (College)Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830263

Also, I hope that either;

A) The epilogue of the series finale is everyone celebrating at the Grand Galloping Gala (if they reprise 'At the Gala' too, I will cry)

B) The final shot is Twilight reading a book under a tree just like the cold open to season 1 episode 1, then the mane six join her.

Yeah, coming back to the beginning is a guaranteed closure-maker. Das ewige Wiederkehr. The Ring of the Nibelungen. Finnegan's Wake. The Threepenny Opera. Alice in Wonderland. The wheel of karma. The circle of life.

I love the idea of ending with a reprise of "At the Gala," which is still the best thing Ingram ever wrote for this show. Alhough for a combo of graphics and music, I'll take "Winter Wrap-Up" over it. The animators never again did anything as surprising, touching, and expressive as Twilight simply closing her eyes at the end of that number as all the ponies evaporate into darkness around her.

Yeah, that'd be great. But nobody will ever match Mel Blanc's achievement in Chuck Jones's "Rabbit Fire," where he does both Bugs imitating Daffy and Daffy imitating Bugs -- and makes the two imitations different and distinctive. Incredible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=19&v=BnmJALXh_sI

While Winter Wrap up is arguably better in isolation, At the Gala would work way better as a bookend to the series.

>>36830268

That is great.

I mean we've seen Twilight doing Pinkie (Hearth's Warming Tale), Rarity doing Pinkie (Gift of the Maid Pie), Fluttershy doing Rarity (Fake It Till You Make It) and Rainbow doing everyone else (Newbie Dash)

I may have forgotten some. Still, those moments were great but too brief. A whole episode of that kinda stuff will be so fun.

G1 did their own bodyswap episode and despite a less talented and diverse voice cast doing it with less developed characters, it was still a lot of fun to watch. And that was G1. Imagine how fun it would be with G4!

Cyan HideCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830276

Predictions for the rest of the first half:

Common Ground: Dash is going to learn some kind of lesson here, as is Quibble

She's All Yak: Yona and Sandbar start getting shipped by the show. Rarity almost ruins Yona's chances by tarting her up (and instructing her how to act) instead of letting her be herself. Prepare for cringe

Frenemies: Tirek saves Cozy Glow's life and gets tsundere about it. Chrysalis is tsundere 24/7

Sweet and Smoky: Smolder's brother is the red dragon from Dragonshy.

Going To Seed: Babs Seed returns. There will be a heartfelt Applejack song

The Last Crusade: Diamond Tiara gets a speaking role. Scootaloo's family are the unexpected visitors. The CMC stay together and aren't split up.

Between Dark And Dawn: Lessons from the previous episodes this season actually stick and the Mane six do a good job once they get their bearings. Celestia and Luna will be hilarious.
