Default My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

Being rather popular and having a huge and diverse fanbase especially on the internet I thought it's about time PI finally should have a thread about this show.

There have been many incarnations of My Little Pony series which have the goal to promote merchandise. While this still may be the intent here, there has been a lot of effort put in the show, giving things a true meaning and such. I personally cannot say many big words here as I have merely seen one episode but spent a decent amount of time listening to the many songs of the show, reading up some background info and watching one scene or two. Though, I certainly plan some catching up on all this episodes at some point.

What about you? I think it's likely that you know about this show's existence but have you spent any time getting to know it better? What's your favourite character? What do you think about the songs?

Never got into it but a former co-worker of mine admitted to me that he was a "Brony."

I think some of this show's fanbase is a bit odd to say the very least (but on the other hand, I think every fandom has these kinds of fans). I wouldn't consider myself a Brony or Pegasister if this term is still in use. I also won't buy tons of merchandise but I was thinking of buying maybe a plushie or some cheap figures. Recently, I also got some Kinder Surprise eggs with Pony figures. My seen episode count is now at an amazing amount of 3. The show still interests me, though the German version while not being super bad is just not as great as the English one. Applejack is missing her accent there and it feels like she lost some of her personality (I know that it would be hard to imitate in German but still...). There is something nice about all the main ponies for me but Applejack has to be my favourite. I just like what's she's doing and her big family. I also like Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash. Fluttershy seems ver similar to me from what I've seen...

He was real smart and real nice and even had a girlfriend. He wasn't the typical male MLP fan that we think of.

I didn't only mean male fans and I didn't mean that all fans are like that. I was also thinking of some of the artwork that has been produced out of which not everything is very appropriate. But, once again, I should not have pointed this out so much since a lot of other fandoms have fans which are very similar.

Oh I know exactly what you're talking about. Yeah some people feel they have to "soil" what's meant to be pristine but also at times the original intent of the artists just open themselves up. Misty, May, and Dawn's shorts are too low for girls their age let's be honest.

The problem is that you stumble across this kind of stuff very quickly (or in my case violent stuff). On the other hand there are also very good fan-made animations which are really amazing (and some were already asked to be taken down before I even could see them).

I'm not phased by most stuff. If someone sends me a sick link I will click on it because that's how I am. That being said, I don't go out of my way to seek that stuff because (while it is limited) I have a social life.

Gf was somewhat into the show for a bit and I didn't really care for or against it, including a lot of the backlash "bronies" were getting at the time. (She's a Rainbow Dash fan, btw)

seen a few ep's here and there, show is fine and I get that fanbase can be out of line, but it at least seems to have calmed down.

I find myself relating with AppleJack more than any of the others, but that really isn't saying much

I was into it for a few years, until season 3, then my love for it kinda died. Now I only watch it when it's new because I have nothing better to do.
