That was a refreshing RD episode, the best since Wonderbolt Academy. It didn't feel like the rest of the cast were shorehorned in for no reason, they were all spot on and had some part in the plot.

I can't think of any other show that tackles study tactics and habits like this before. Even if teachers know, they usually can't personalize their teaching method for each 30+ students in their class so its usually up to kids to figure this out.

I loved the history dump. EUP as the precursor to the Royal Guard, historians dividing up the past into "Celestial eras"... and because of the setup, it didn't feel like just an exposition dump either.

Sad RD turning a cloud into a raincloud was cute.

Anybody officially dropping MLP? The two parter finale is literally titled Twilight's Kingdom. Its about Discord tracking a villain and the other princesses literally give up their power to Twilight to save Equestria which I guess ends with Twilight Sue ruling everything at the end and if not that still ruling a portion of her own with her own subjects.

Its over, piece of shit. Will not watch S5, its over. So I guess this is Hasrbo's "Rainbow Kingdom" promotion that they were going for.

The only interesting part is Discord's role given that Twilight became mehish when she became an alicorn princess. Why is Discord tracking a villain down and who is it? Is it an old foe like Chrysalis or Sombra? Or a new one made up on the spot?

Don't feel so sorry for any of the CMCs. Considering they never fight back and beat those bitches black and blue, one has to take it that they like being abused and treated like punching bags.

CMC's "learned helplessness" is one of the traits that makes them so annoying. No one likes loser doormats unless they toughen up which of course they do not, much less fight back. In fact the only time we've seen the CMC dish out a beat down was against each other in Return of Harmony's intro. So its not like the show has that kind of censorship breathing down its neck.

The fact that the writers choose to not have the CMC beat up DT and SP shows how shitty they are.

I bet Shining Armor never seriously considered that he'd have to actually rule an empire when he started dating Cadance in high school. He's really not cut out for it.

This FF comic wasn't too interesting. It repeated and reinforced Twilight and Shining Armor's relationship without adding too much to it at all. I am really excited for the next comic of the main series though.

I know right, I just have a creeping fear that it will end with a anti-climatic friendship powered auto win at the last minute.

Eh, it's nothing to worry about.

Evil can have friends too after all.

Also Princess Celestia getting character development both in this/that arc and Friends Forever #3?
Fuck yeah.

It would have been nice to see something like it before the wedding but aw well.

Glad to see that there are some who dont mind the cameo ponies unlike some reviews I'v seen.

So anyone else see the latest issue of the main comic? With the official twist of Celestia and good King Sombra being romantically involved, it goes without saying that this comic is not canon to the show.

I CAN'T BELIEVE that was the issue end twist cliffhanger, it was so telegraphed last issue.
Eh, maybe the little girls reading this are hype as fuck.

Now if it would have be that Evil Celestia had taken Good Celestia's place that would been a twist.
Especially when you dont get a good look at her cute mark after she comes back.

>> No. 226866
Its definitively not canon to the show. Season 4 Ep 1 which took place directly after MMC got rid of the Elements of Harmony but in this story the elements are still around and are the key solution to saving Sombra's world hence Spike packing them.

It could take place during season 3-4 gap along that crystal heart book.
But the last arc had a season 4 reference...
Eh, they dont have to be published in order.
>> No. 226870

Princess Twilight Sparkle took place in the same day as Magic Mystery Cure given Twilight was struggling to get her wings to work (then again MMC had her fly with no issue claiming obnoxious "everything is going to be great!"). Its just bullshit really, enjoy what you can and trash what you don't like, says I.

This week's episode was a bit underwhelming for all the hype they had going for the games. Gotta rewatch it to see if they show Derpy competing in the actual games.

Last week's episode was interesting, but I expected a better resolution. And the finale next week... the future doesn't look THAT promising, aside from the villain who looks like COULD be Tirek from G1.

I haven't followed the latest arc on the comic, so can't say much about it. Still gotta read a few other arcs too, though I'm hyped for the upcoming Trixie storyline.

As for EqG2, no preview this week I think. They're focusing less on background characters.

From the perspective of the episode by itself, it was ok. Pretty good as Spike episodes go.

But from the perspective that the Equestria Games have been hyped by three previous episodes over two seasons, the fact that the games was merely used as a backdrop for a Spike episode was a huge disappointment. The previous setup episodes have been hyping the games as an athletic competition (Rainbow Falls) or as a showcasing of nationalities (Flight to the Finish) or as a monumental event to host (Games Ponies Play) so you would think the climax would be about any of those. They could have made it a standard two parter, or multiple episodes of standalone Equestria Games plots. It could have served to better flesh out the other nations competing (Saddle Arabians, griffons, etc), they could have focused on Rainbow Dash and her team's competition against Cloudsdale, or bring back an old rival (Gilda) as a competitor, or maybe a focus on the mane6/princesses as they work behind the scenes to make it run smoothly. But nope, Spike needed another episode.

On the positive side, I really liked the anti-magic spell. It would explain how they could theoretically keep bad unicorns in prison/dungeon. I also liked the new leader ponies briefly shown.
>> No. 227021
I still keep, way deep down, a hope that they could be saving Gilda and the like for a future story. Though if the show focus changes as it seems from previews and stuff, I'm afraid there won't be a lot of possibilities for that.
>> No. 227022
this episode nearly killed me with second-hand embarrassment.
>> No. 227025
I'm not surprised, once EQ hit the popularity dropped like a rock. Its meme status is over and now only the true fans are left, which isn't a whole lot compared to the meme fans.
>> No. 227030
You seem confused. If that were true, /mlp/ would be dead for good. Actually most pony activity on the net seemed to diminish in the first half of the season, but seems to be rising again near the end. And I'm not talking good activity.

Looks like the more cancerous types have been pretty active of late, is what I meant. Posting/making fucked up porn etc.

On a brigher note, though, there was a charity stream over the last couple days with a good portion of the show's VAs and writers as guests, being interviewed. As far as I caught, the only possible news were that Peter New (Big Mac's VA) is pretty excited about commercials this week. Not sure what this implies. Either way, some of the interviews were hilarious.

I cringed because of its focus on pedestalizing Twilight because of her princess status. I really don't like that element to the character. The only character who it fits with is Rarity who since S1 during early eps said she wanted to be a princess. With Twilight it just reeks of both unfitting, random, and blatant toy selling excuse.
>> No. 227153
While it's obviously a toy selling element, remember that princess in pony universe means being of great power or with a promise of great power.

I predict either Discord will join him OR Tirek will defeat Discord at the end of the first episode to show how powerful he is... ala Wolverine syndrome.
>> No. 227241
Its sad, but Discord is soooo going to job. If a mere common cold can fuck him up in Three's a Crowd, then he has zero chance against Tirek. Even King Sombra came back from his icy sealed prison without a case of the sniffles. And same goes to Luna (hey the moon is cold).
>> No. 227254
Colds are caused by viruses, not exposure to the cold. And he were sneezed on by an obscure supernatural creature. I dig the whole 'being of chaos' thing, but he only gets so much mileage in an orderly place like Equestria.
Could've been a case of weak writing in an episode (of a saturday morning kids show!? yadon'tsay) but Celestia's spell preventing Discord from interacting with certain things may indicate she's been using him to cut the mane6's adventuring teeth for a while. Girl was using all the elements herself a thousand years ago.
It's just as possible Discord tagged in Tirek to loophole around his position where he can't personally cause chaos there without retaliation anymore. Even if he "jobbed", what would happen? Ohnoes, more chaos. Don't. Stop. *munch popcorn.*
>> No. 227261
So... that was it.
Tirek and Scorpan, though changed a bit.
We got a glimpse of tartarus.
Discord being a serious, serious fucking douche.
DBZ scene.
New pony digivolution... welp, liked the Elements of Harmony a lot better. The new designs looked better in the promotional stuff.
Derpy closeups.
2 new songs, competently done.
So, yeah. A palace and everyone gets thrones.
Ugh, they really went there, didn't they... Discord courting Celestia.

I have... no clue where the hell this is going, now. Guess I should try rewatching soon, because overall Tirek DID look cool.

Oh yeah, and the Hub character crossovers during the commercials were interesting, but I guess Dan Vs isn't exactly a Hub property, so no appearances for him.
