I haven't seen much mention of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic on the Crunchyroll forums. So I decided to make a topic dedicated to it, rather than posting in the existing cartoon threads.

As of this writing, I'm still gearing up to see MLP: FIM. But everything I've read about it sounds positive. It's getting a good reputation for being a cartoon with writing and characterization that both kids and adults can appreciate. It has a very loyal fanbase as well.

The show has one season so far, with another one planned for fall 2011. The first season of Friendship is Magic was created by some of the same people who made Dexter's Laboratory and Powerpuff Girls.

So, any thoughts?

Other than seeing some few youtube views from and about MLP, it seems promising. Though I think I'll refrain from watching it. The images I find are amusing enough. 4chan seems to love it though.

Up to episode five now, still enjoying the show. It's mostly slice of life, so not a whole lot happens each episode. But it's charming, and occasionally something surprising happens.

In episode one, Twilight Sparkle makes a remark about how all the other ponies are crazy. So it's only appropriate that MLP:FIM has some crazy-loyal fans. But overall, I think I'm impressed with the fanbase. A lot of them seem genuinely nice. They have lots of amusing fanfic, fanart, and demotivators. There's already a consistent audio podcast called Bronyville. A bunch of fan-made games are already complete, including one inspired by the Touhou franchise. Themed imageboards such as Ponychan are a lot less horrifying/obnoxious than nearly every other imageboard. Fans are organizing get-togethers at conventions. And the list goes on...

It's a good show, but not everybody digs it. That's cool. Though I don't get the people who hate on the show without even giving it a shot. If you've never watched it I say give it a chance. If you hate it, that's cool. You can just move on with your life. Unless you're one of these sad human beings that has to whine about the show's existence every time it's mentioned that is. If you love it, well then you're welcome. Also, I wonder what exactly hating the fanbase (and being vocal as fuck about it) is accomplishing.

Also,

Where are all these pony threads you speak of?

edit: I guess it would be helpful to the OP if I mentioned why I love the show, no?

Well, I love the animation. Flash works really well for this show. I love the characters, They're fully fleshed out. Even one of the characters I thought I would hate I ended up liking because she was given a real personality with both positive and negative traits. All of the mane (yes that spelling is intentional) cast have their positive and negative traits. And they grow as characters. The sense of humour this show has is awesome as well. And they manage to be funny without having to resort to edginess or controversy. Most shows that do this end up being really cheesy and lame. True, not every joke is solid gold, but they hit the mark more often than not. Part of the reason the humour works, btw, is the voice acting. Seriously. I've not heard voice acting this good in a kid's show in a long time. Another thing is how they throw some pretty awesome references in there. So far they've referenced X-Men, Looney Tunes, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Star Trek and lots more. And finally, the music is top notch. Both the background music and the songs with vocals are amazing. But don't take my word for it. Watch and see for yourself.

And the fanbase is awesome. deltaportal you are full of shit. How exactly is the fanbase horrible? I've never seen a group so supportive of each other as a community. Sure, there are few exceptions, but I'd say about 98% of them seem to be decent folk by internet standards.

Well Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash are my favorites just saying. By the way, it's a good show, it's got good lessons and cute characters. If creepy old men want to watch good television, I think they should have their fun.

Bronies forever. I love you guys.



But this is the only Pony thread in CR..... C'mon we've been needing one here.

Oh really? I guess it is mentioned everywhere, but I actually like the cartoon, so I guess I'm a little biased with my accepting.
