10 Pages to go fags gents!

Let’s see how fast we can fill this shit up.

Although I just don’t know if I’m that excited for the show anymore. Just doesn’t have the same spark it used to you know? Especially with all the Pandering….I can’t do this anymore with a straight face, April Fool’s day!

I know you guys are probably trying to forget those creatures that crawled from the depths of Hades into our image gallery yesterday, so let me bring them up again. Here is the creator explaining himself (he isn’t a native English speaker):

Also (in the other picture’s comments), he confirms they have two vaginas and that he will be doing the rest of the mane six.

Yeah, McCarthy’s having fun today.
(That Daring Do one… Awesome.)

Alright McCarthy, you officially made the cut. Prepare to be bred with M.A. Larson to produce gen 5’s writers.

@ Deadparrot: Somehow, it wouldn’t surprise me if Dash was one of those “I’m leaving the fandom cus x” type of fans

@Skyman: Well, at least the guy is making what he likes, and isn’t doing it to fuck with people… I guess.

Shiiiiiiiiiiiit MAD just can’t get enough of parodying MLP and Bronies. Now we have another skit but this time it features Rainbow Dash voiced by Tara Strong.

How long until they just make one episode that’s just one long MLP/Brony Parody?

Well at least link to it if you’re going to bring it up! :)

I propose that ‘Halloween Donkey’ be Dash’s official alternate name.

Tara has a pretty decent Dash voice, actually.
Ashleigh is obviously perfect for the role, but this is… nice.

(Also, I know I’m going to kick myself when I find out because I know that I know this but… who is the voice of the kid? He sounds so familiar but I just can’t place it.)

@/mlp/ episode

They mine as well throw in the towel now, because the second Hasbro hears this project originated on the cesspool of the internet, they’re gonna colony drop their entire legal dept on it.

@Skymankez
“Also (in the other picture’s comments), he confirms they have two vaginas and that he will be doing the rest of the mane six.”

Why would that be something he’d need to confirm?!

@Trolling creators

If I were them, I’d totally sneak in something legit and then say so just to reap the extra lulz from everybody panicking.

Also, when’s the Forum Title Election? Cause I have a SuperPAC flush with bits, ready to dump pointless ads about the Deathly Hasbro’s superiority.

Actually, dude man guy made another post immediately afterwards, so I can’t really tell. But unless he dropped out of med school, I’m guessing he just killed two birds with one orange spell. Here’s hoping that he’s still in school (unless he just doesn’t want to be.)

So it seems as though the Japanese version of the show is blocked in the U.S. (due to same restrictions that block the original episodes), but a backdoor has been found!
Click Here For Kawaii Pony!
(That link worked for me at least. Hopefully it will work for others.)

I don’t watch a lot of anime or Japanese-dubbed shows, but overall I’d have to say that this sounds pretty good.
Twilight’s actress does an especially great job.
I didn’t understand a word she said but you could still pull the emotion of the scene out of her tone alone.
RD was a little ‘meh’ for me and AJ just sounded really odd without her usual accent, but the others were solid, if not particularly spectacular.

Japanese tends to use more syllables than English to say the same things which makes some of the lines pretty awkwardly mismatched with the animation, but that’s to be expected.
God damn does this Pinkie have to talk like lightning, though.
<div class=spoiler title=“Also, could anyone not help hearing this when the lights came on?”>


Oh, and just in case you missed it, Pinkie finally made the leap into our dimension today.

Man, that’s a big plushie!

@Japanese Pony

Is it just me? Or does it seem a little too natural to hear Twilight Speaking in Japanese?

Nobody?

Oh well, maybe it’s just my headcanon of Twilight being Ja-Pony-se.

…I need to stop making jokes…

You should do stand-up with Verbose.

@BSoD

I thought it would only take a few minutes to skim through everything… oh, how wrong I was.


@Verbose

That latest update seems like a pretty good representation of what tumblr is like.

Hey, speaking of tumblr, Slice of Pony Life finally concluded its Nightmare Night arc. You know, a long time ago during one of our synchtube sessions (RIP), some of you scoffed at the idea of a FIM series placed a few years in the future when I suggested it. It’s all in the writing, folks. I tell you, if anyone could pull off some good episodes, it’d be Egophiliac.

As for the one that some people on /mlp/ would like to make, they probably won’t follow through, but I still think it’s a good idea.


@DeadParrot

If they ever messed with Fluttershy’s wings, I would flip my &#%$! like you’ve never seen &#%$! flipped before.

@Verbose

I kind of lost interest in Sketchy Twilight after the Twilicorn rant. Mainly because it >implies the artist will be ignoring canon in future updates. Canon cherrypicking mildly rustles my jimmies. The only time it’s acceptable is if canon josses your story/comic/tumblr and you have to ignore it to keep the plot going. Plus there’s the whole “updates as often as Night’s Favored Child” thing, but it seems like all the Tumblr blogs I like are doing that now-in-days.

@Fimfiction

Thank Celestia the human ban was just a pretty badly planned April Fools joke. My rage would have been unstoppable and the jimmy rustling would have registered on reichter scales in Moscow had it been real. Not to mention turning Fimfiction into the fandom’s version of Somolia.

@DeadParrot: I’m surprised Dash’s voice was one of the “worse” ones, considering how good Japanese voice actresses usually are at voicing boy-ish/scratchy voices like Dash’s


You know, It just sunk in with me that this will be my first pony thread I will be seeing through to the end. I was around when Pony General V was here (lurking), but it’s still such an odd experience for me

You know what’s sad? The creator of this plush had to specifically state that she does not make plushies with holes in the back. I don’t think there are many plush creators for other fandoms that have to do that.

@Crimson

I’m sure it wasn’t “necessary” to be mentioned. Mostly only nerdy trolls would be asking for that in the first place anyway. (See Dac, ahaha.)


For so much biped pony action, this is seriously awesome. And I totally dig the beat.

Anyways, nothing agaisnt bronies( every Internet fandom has creeps), but I think it was better that she stated upfront she wouldn’t do that, if only to avoid emails every now and then asking if she would do that. Especially with people like this!

Announcer: Yu Darvish is one out away from pitching a perfect game.

The CMC are excited.

Announcer: Here’s the pitch to Gonzalez and the ball goes by Darvish’s leg for a base hit, and the perfect game is ruined.

Someone please make this comic.

Season 4 speculation time:
In this video (which was made over a year ago)

The commentator speculates that Applejack doesn’t get many episodes about her goals or life lessons because she for the most part attained the goal she wanted (working at Sweet Apple Acres) and learned any lessons she needed to learn (be less stubborn and learn to ask for help), and so writers have been having trouble giving AJ something to do besides be a moral support character. I would agree with this for the most part, but since the passing of season 3, I think the writers have finally given AJ something else to do.

In Apple Family Reunion, AJ volunteers to organize the event, and gets nervous about not doing things right and letting her entire family down. She may feel this pressure not only because she has to organize a large event that only happens every 100 moons, but she may also want to prove herself worthy of one day inheriting Sweet Apple Acres. Right now, AJ is only a worker horse, and it seems that the whole thing is run for the most part by Granny Smith. We already know that AJ’s dream is to work on the farm (which is something she already accomplished), so it would seem natural that by extension she would want to be the one to run it some day. I think, if this were true, there could be a lot more about her to be explored in season 4.

Maybe everyone already thought this and I’m just late to the party, but I’m hoping this is a subject that is touched upon in season 4 (or possibly later seasons if they exist).

@Applejack

I would have thought that Applejack’s new thing was that she works too hard.

No, not in the sense she won’t ask for help, that ship has sailed…

I mean, she’s a workaholic. In a sense somewhere between Twilight’s Prudence and Rainbow Dash’s Try hardness.

And so I propose that Applejack get an episode where Granny Smith and Big Macintosh insist that Applejack take a holiday after Applejack has a stressful afternoon. But while on holiday, Applejack continues to be plagued with worries about the farm.

…And when it turns out the family are doing quite well without her, she begins to freak out about where she belongs, and where she fits in. And she tries getting another job, but it only exacerbates the stress that her family sent her away to get rid of.

It then takes the full efforts of Pinkie Pie and Twilight to pull Applejack away so she can calm down and enjoy a day off; so she can realize that it’s not her job that defines her. And that sometimes, when her friends don’t need her help at that moment, maybe that doesn’t mean they don’t want her company…

Or something along those lines.

In fact, lets letter to Celestia this thing!


Dear Princess

Today I learned that though there are days where giving all the help you can give is a good thing, sometimes there are days where you need to spend some time to give yourself a rest.

Because while helping others is a beautiful thing, sometimes you need to tend to yourself so you don’t hurt yourself trying to help your friends.

And the beautiful thing about friendship, is that a friend will always be there to help you relax and enjoy life, so you don’t wear yourself out.

Your Honest Subject: Applejack.

@Minuette vs Tardiness

That’s a pretty fun and intense game. All those other pony platforming games are fun too. More people need to play them.

@Applejack

What’s her next goal even though she already living her dream job? I would say it’s to continue to work on the farm and make it expand. Applejack’s not just a farm pony, she’s also a business pony. She has to grow AND sell her apples in order to keep the farm running. And, lets face it, running a farm with only four ponies isn’t very easy. As we have seen in Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000, it was impossible for the apple family to met the supply and demand of the townsfolk without the help of Applejack’s friends. What I think Applejack needs to do next is hire some work ponies to help out on the farm. If she does this, she would make so much more money.
