>418872 While I didn't much care for many of the s8 episodes, the season long arc was pretty good. Having the racist EEA guy and Chrysalis as red herrings for the final villain was a nice touch.
Personal opinion, but Tartarus was not as cool as I hoped it would be. Tartarus is just a single big room with some miscellaneous monsters in cages, and its not even deep underground or anything. You'd think you'd want someone like Tirek behind multiple barriers, magical force fields, lava moats, etc. Not just a single door which can be magically forced open and a single guard dog.
>>419085 Yeah, Equestria Girls is terrible. At least this Monster High ripoff era seems to be coming to an end finally. MH is long dead now, Equestria Girls seems to have ended too (no new toys), only DC Superhero girls is going on, but at least that show gets a new art style too.
The movie is pretty awesome. So many small elements that show this was done by people who care about the franchise and know all the characters and their backstory. http://kimcartoon.to/Cartoon/My-Little-Pony-Best-Gift-Ever/Movie?id=87815&s=beta&pfail=1
And the best part? Derpy is talking again! There is a hilarious and awesome scene with her and Rarity at the post office. And yes, she sounds like she did back in that one episode where she spoke, and she is just as ditzy.
>>419296 LOL I knew a person like that. I found a nice art - sketchy pencil work - I liked it enough to ask the artist would he mind if I colored it. He didn't, so I did, then before I could post it the guy whose OC he drew contacted me forbidding me to publish the pic because "I asked for a nice porn commission of my OCs and he drew all those nasty sexy gremlin girls there, I absolutely don't want to see this anywhere!"... thanks, letting me know after I worked on inking and coloring it. ... I have half a mind to release the pic now, many years later, knowing these people are probably long gone from Furaffinity already.
>>419398 Well, personally I would release it because I value the original work and respect the actual artist's opinion far more than the commissioner's. If drawing OCs without permission is wrong, then all my cartoon fan art would be highly unethical. Then again, my moral values are mixed and probably unorthodox. >"I absolutely don't want to see this anywhere!" Yeah well I don't want people drawing thin cartoon girls with watermelon tits, but we can't always get what we want.
>>419401 Well, the thing I just inked and colored it, and the the artist who drew it also wanted to abide by the commissioner's wishes. I did not want him to get the flak if I released it. But this way years ago, so whoever the commissioner was likely is no longer around anymore, so I'll just post it on /pco. >>419498 Huh, what episode is that from?
>>420079 Random lurker here. I salute you, Derpibooru, /mlp/, Equestria Daily, Fimfiction, The fandom precesses that remain on social media, the Roundstable foums, Equestria Gaming, ponychan and all it's dead clones, everfree radio and whatever other projects and communities of varying levels of pride and or cringe of this wild ride. It's been nice knowing y'all. May this season not disappoint.

Twilight sparkle Age 20 years old.
In chapter 23 of Season 1 "The cutie mark chronicles" she talks about going to Celestia’s school of gifted unicorns, when everyone was already going to school, plus she was still studying or was already finishing her studies when she net her friends in the first episode, with this info it suggests that she’s the youngest one of all.

Rainbow dash Age 23 or 21 years old… born Feb 1 ’93 or ’95
In chapter 12 of Season 4 "Pinkie pride" she talks about her birthaversary, basing on the date of the premiere, Feb 1 2014, it could be her birthday, her cake had 21 candles which suggests that it’s her age (arguable) 21 years back takes us to Feb 1 1993, knowing Fluttershy’s age, they both used to study in Cloudsdale, if we ignore the cake candles and keeping in mind that that chapter 23 of Season 1 "Cutie mark chronicles" where Fluttershy is taller than Rainbow, we could suggest that Rainbow is 1 or 2 years younger than Fluttershy.

Rarity Age: 24 It is the only one who has her own business and according to the first episode of season one, "Friendship is magic part 1", she was Cheerilee’s classmate which is an adult pony. Which suggests that she is one of the olders of the group.

Pinkie pie: Age 22 Years old… born May 3rd ’94
In chapter 18 of Season 2 "A friend in Deed" Pinkie told Cranky that she was 75 days away from her birthday, basing on the release date of that episode of Feb 2012, 75 days later was May 3, now in Chapter 11 Season 4 "Three’s a crowd" Pinkie says that she was born on a Tuesday. The years before 2012 with a May 3rd were: 2011, 2005, 1994… knowing that they’re adults, her year if birth is 1994
Okay, this might be the place to ask, where did all the "humanized form" ponies come from? I mean are they official designs, or did someone make some human versions based on the show art and they got popular, or what?
>>420155 I guess you were living under a rock for the past what, 6 years? Hasbro basically tried to copy-paste the success of Monster High and made Equestria Girls. There is an official but ridiculous explanation in that this is an alternate universe where Twilight and Spike travelled to, in order to find an evil ex-apprentice of Celestia... but that was quickly dropped and the subsequent movies had introduced another Twilight in that universe too. They otherwise live totally like normal humans, there are no pegasi or unicorns and no magic either. It's pretty terrible, to be frank.
Well if you thought Filly was the worst MLP knockoff ever, here is a new contender from Nicktoons... http://kimcartoon.to/Cartoon/Corn-Peg Yes, (uni)Corn and Peg(asus). They were that lazy with names. Not only are the designs ugly (everyone has giant teeth... I know they are horses but WTF) but the whole thing is the dumb kiddie crap that G2-3 MLP was
Just an amazing episode. Love the sisters and their vacation, fight and reunion was heartwarming. Plus great songs! https://kimcartoon.to/Cartoon/My-Little-Pony-Friendship-Is-Magic-Season-9/Episode-13?id=92094
>>420806 I realized that after I posted it when Celestia mentions spells (was tired)... Heck they even remembered the Canterlot voices from season 2. Damn the writers have to remember a lot from 8 seasons! I need to rewatch it myselg. :D
Welp. I'm just a random traveler who is checking in on all corners of this fandom to see the reaction. If y'all haven't heard the final has been leaked in dutch. Avoid /mlp/, Derpibooru, Reddit, any leftovers of 8/pone and anywhere else that is a pony presence if you want to stay uspoilered. Good luck!
You know what I hate? Characters reaching their goals in a cartoon, unless it makes them look like a loser not to reach them. Everyone in MLP has been boring for a long time. Everyone reached their endgame.
>>422418 Well, Cartoon Animals 2020 - Quarter 1, I borderline don't care. I like Friendship Is Magic, and it ended. Whatever the new version will be, it won't be Friendship Is Magic, the once in a 1,000 years lightning in a bottle.
>>422424 I forgot to change the username, sue me. I see you changed yours again, you are running out of letters! Guess soon you need to use Miistiir Twiistiir. ;) I am curious what they will try next. This Pony Life stuff people still call Generation 4.5, so I dunno if this will have a show or movies at all? I mean the toys are still using the Friendship is Magic characters.
FINALLY watched the final 3 episodes. Though Grand Finale: This IS The End This Time (We're Not Joking Edition) could have used some more elaborate way of subduing Grogar's Bell (the surefire rainbow technically just damaged a large area and weakened the villains, the bell remained intact) and and actual speaking line from Fizzlepop Berrytwist (though any cameo at all is greatly appreciated and shows the showmakers care about the movie remaining CANNON and not throwaway optional thing), the very last episode is as good as the show could possibly get. It's a shame [spoiler]none of the Mane 6 were shown to have children, but guess the decision was made to leave that to the viewers' imagination (and perhaps because having children is not "empowering" to women or some shit). I legit thought the little horsie was Pinkie's son, but then my hopes were shattered on the rocks.[spoiler]
So, anyone else checked out this Pony Life thing? It is basically TTG, but with the characters at least keeping some semblance of their personalities... not much mind you. I could stomach 3 episodes before it got annoying. They also ignore continuity, and character development a lot, with Fluttershy reverting to her S1 scared persona, despite this taking place just before the coronation.
>>424355 I don't mind the idea of singing to tell a story sometimes, I simply hate the BIG AND LOUD Broadway style songs that 99% of the musical fans worship as THE way to do a musical. Well, I guess I cannot convince you, more like explaining my stance.
>>424455 And maybe even if they don't use the same name. I havent see. The source but judging by the image, Im guessing it goes beyond inspiration or original character. It's a purple winged unicorn with that same hairstyle. Is it an actual real parody (critiquing the source)? Have they put ads on it?? (makes it harder but not impossible to claim fair use)
Before you reply, note that IANAL and haven't looked at US fair use law for years, nor have I seen the video. I just have a sour feeling and am raising potential factors.
So, anyone tried watching this new Pony Life show? I gave up after 2 episodes, it was terrible IMHO. Felt the same like watching Thundercats Roar or Teen Titans Go, same characters but they act like someone rewrote them. And the animation... those creepy faces..
>>424530 You pretty much nailed it. I only watch sequels if the original crew made them, or gave their blessing (like how original Sucker Punch developers looked at Sly 4 in early development, gave their thumbs up, and provided suggestions). Original pony team inside Hasbro decided to end it after 9 seasons, and make no more. I respect their decision.
