I have no problem with Bronies. Live without fear for liking what you like, and watch more anime.

I couldn't consider myself a brony, simply because I've only seen the first two episodes of the show. I just thought it was funny how someone could say so many disgusting things to someone else, and than have an entire DA account dedicated to 'My Little Pony- Friendship is Magic'. That's when I saw the word 'Brony' for the first time.

Just to add to Hairybelly's info here is the Brony Chronicle documentary. This may also help with those who want to know more about the fandom.
Warning the videos are lengthy, but should give more explanation especially from the Brony perspective.

Luna-by EurobeatBrony

And lastly for the Higurashi Fans...I present When the Ponies Cry. This parody is actually how i learned about Higurashi
https://youtu.be/f0xXDlsoZIc


That's just a taste of the fandom....though I think a majority of people have heard of bronies, but just in case.


As in regards to Op I actualy heard about Bronies from this video. https://youtu.be/olLDrvc1qt4
I decided to look into it actually thought the show was pretty good and dabbled in the Brony fandom. I was part of the fandom for a year or so before getting bored and just lost interest. I have nothing against bronies and I think they can create some pretty amazing fan content.

I don't really know much about the show, though I know several individuals from the target demographic that like it (family), but from what I've seen it seems like a good show. I do not particularly understand some people's obsession with it, but I am not really into any media franchise.
I have had one encounter with a self-professed brony at college, he had some dyed hair and was typically a reclusive individual. While he was generally polite enough, he could diverge into extremely dark tangents and seemed to hold a low opinion of humanity in general.

I was gonna say I am fine with Bronies, don't really judge them, etc. ...But I guess not, because I then saw this picture:




Good God, has he no dignity?

A friend of mine is a brony and he is the worst kind of brony.
He'll try to force mlp onto you and says YOU have garbage taste if you don't like mlp. Sounds like SAO fans.

A friend of mine had a brony as his very first college roommate. I've met the guy and he's sketch as hell. My friend also has a semester's worth of stories about his pervy pony obsession. (Literally pervy, as his desktop wallpapers were often humanoid versions of the ponies in sexy clothing.)

My college actually has a brony club. I can't help but feel pity.

I've watched the show myself, and didn't think much of it. It was just like any other cartoon. But it's somehow created a monster fanbase of sociopathic young men. (Note, I don't think each and every brony is a sociopath, but I have seen my share of the crazies in real life.)

Ive got a friend that's heavily into being a brony although he doesn't go to the extreme as dressing up as the characters. He has almost all the plushes, some towels, comp art and even a xbox live tag under some MLP name. He's tried to get me to watch the show a dozen or so times and I just can't stand it, i hate everything about it.

I saw the title and the name of the person who created this thread and all I could think of was a horror story involving bronies and the OP lived to tell the tale.

A) Ponies
B) Friendship
C) Magic
D) All of the above
E) Aliens invade earth and destroy every large city on the planet, forcing the surviving humans to hide underground and become mole people who go crazy when they see sunlight. Also, Kenny dies.

Take a guess.

A few months ago, I started looking for My Little Pony:FiM memes on Bing Images in response to questions here and on other sites, and couldn't believe how many there were for every topic imaginable!

Ok - so I got curious and decided to record, and later watch, a few episodes. I'm pretty much hooked now. Some of the characters and stories are absolutely hilarious! S'pose that makes me a Brony??



Edit: I learned just a few days ago that there was a character named "Chancellor Puddinghead" mentioned in the original history of Equestria (the land where the stories take place).

- My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a children's animated television series produced by Hasbro Studios in the United States (for scripts) and at DHX Media's studio located in Vancouver, British Columbia (for animation; formerly known as Studio B Productions).

The series, based on Hasbro's My Little Pony line of toys and animated works, is intended for girls age two through 11 and is often referred to be the fourth generation or "G4" of the My Little Pony franchise, as classified by collectors, following earlier lines and television show tie-ins in the 1980s and 1990s.

The show follows a studious unicorn pony named Twilight Sparkle as her mentor Princess Celestia guides her to learn about friendship in the town of Ponyville.

Twilight becomes close friends with five other ponies: Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie. Each represents a different face of friendship, and Twilight discovers herself to be a key part of the magical artifacts known as the "Elements of Harmony". The ponies share adventures and help out other residents of Ponyville, while working out the troublesome moments in their own friendships.

The show has been critically praised for its humor and moral outlook. Despite the target demographic of young girls, Friendship Is Magic has also gained a large following of older viewers, mainly young and middle-aged men, who call themselves "bronies".
