>>436920 >Sonic character >> pony An instant improvement. Not only there is 0 chance for monoeye, but also no noodle limbs and balloon bellies.
>>436923 Just when I was respecting Hasbro a little bit for allowing the showrunners to end it all with season 9. Not only can the comics not end ever, but now they want to make G1 canon. As if I couldn't like non-show content less.
So, no comments on the G5 show/movie? I found it pretty lackluster. Big step back from G4 in character design and personalities, honestly - most of them are copy-pastes of G4 characters, the movie had no real villain (other than Trump-pony) and it retcons things in ridiculous ways (since when did pegasi need magic to fly?) - not to mention that apparently all that Twilight Sparkle and friends worked for so hard, the unity of the 3 pony races, fell apart so easily...
>>438982 Sure, but it seems everyone has forgotten the Mane 6's teachings, despite remembering them, and somehow missed that they were of all 3 species, united? WTF? Also how many years does this take place, after G4? I mean we know for a fact Celestia and Luna are thousands of years old. I assumed Twilight as an Alicorn would live that long too. We saw in the last episode, she aged nothing while her friends grew old.
>>438993 Umm, no, that's not what Tirek did. He drained the life force of people, leaving them weak and powerless. Of course they could not fly. But when Cozy Glow destroyed all magic 3 seasons later, pegasi could fly normally. Heck, Cozy Glow HERSELF was a pegasus and could fly in a magic-free world. So could other flying species like the griffons.
>>438974 They ruined the future lore of a story they also ruined, and then apparently forgot what they had and re-did everything. The only reason I watched it was Izzy and, to be honest, I was not disappointed. It's also strange to me how forgettable the fact is that these are ponies, after all. IMHO they should have just started from scratch like previous gens.
>>438995 They said several times in the episodes that what Tirek does is steal magic, not "life force". Go rewatch it.
As for Cozy Glow's thing, Starswirl explained that first unicorns will lose their magic on the first day, creatures will lose their magic on the second day, and magical artifacts will lose their magic on the third. Pretty sure it was still day 1.
>>438998 LOL too true. They could have made this as a Care Bears story and it would have changed nothing, they would have just been segregated from the bears and the other animals or something. Izzy was... which one? The main one? I barely remembered the names. I recall only that one pegasus princess was a carbon copy of Rainbow Dash and the other was a vain celebrity version of Rarity, and the unicorn girl was basically Pinkie Pie all over again. >>439020 It still makes no sense. Pegasi can fly because they have wings that they flap to create draft to lift them up, same as Hippogriffs, Griffons, etc - as well as normal flying animals like birds and bats. It has nothing to do with magic.
>>439082 I think 9 seasons worth of Spike stories prove that he would not likely leave his life among ponies, no matter how big he gets. He might have learned to fly, and reconnected with some dragons, is even friends with Ember and Smolder but he still thinks and acts mostly like he was raised by ponies. Btw, what I feel is criminal is that we ended G4 without ever getting proper minifigure toys of the School of Friendship students. No Ember or Thorax either. At least we got some Changelings from the articulated Heroes of Equestria (or whatever it was called) toyline, but only of their Chrysalis-enslaved forms.
>>439316 Well no, not exactly. Human beings are omnivores from the ground up intentionally, taking it all in. While opportunistic carnivores are usually animals who have diets that rely on plant matter and have digestion honed towards it, but when the chance comes along or they are hard up for certain things they might supplement their intake with some carrion or what have you. But if they tried to eat alot of meat they'd run into problems since its not what they're primarily built towards.
The whole thing is perhaps more complex to be fair than being able to neatly put all creatures into three succinct boxes of "Carnivore" "Omnivore" "Herbivore" with no overlap.
Guess we are getting 2 shows... a 5-minute youtube short series in 2D that looks horrifying (I have Thundercats Roar flashbacks) and a regular CGI series that uses the movie models. https://www.animationmagazine.net/streaming/my-little-pony-gets-a-double-helping-of-new-series-specials-in-2022/
How quickly did all of society go back to hard equine racism after Twilight Sparkle took over the position of Master Race Alicorn magical goddess? As little as two or so generations? What a fucking useless nerd.
Though maybe magical rainbow horse society shown in this era of the franchise is just inherently fucked up.
>>443291 Yeah one of the reasons why I disliked the new movie. It's just really unbelievable. Also, Celestia and Luna lived for thousands of years, clearly after she became a princess so would Twilight...
>>443305 Wasn't she shown to still be untouched by age when all her friends were old elderly prunes? That clearly seems as if being ascended to ubermensch has extended her mortality beyond mere mortal plebs.
