Ah… the S4 premiere of MLP: FiM was fantastic..
Ah, supreme happiness…
Feeling pretty good about what life is bringing me this instant
Seriously though, the lip and general audio sync is brilliant
This is just my speculation, but I’m thinking Hasbro is concerned that their target demographic of young girls is starting to age up and might be thinking about high school (or may already be entering high school). As a result, they’re focusing some stories on that setting to hold interest. I wouldn’t be surprised if in season 5 of MLP: FiM, the Cutie Mark Crusaders moved out of Cheerilee’s one-room school house and into a larger education establishment, even if it was just for one or two episodes.
Also, just as a general note, high school’s are very popular setting for girl’s and boy’s shows alike since they provide a convenient opportunity to get lots of characters together in a set location with lots of school related story concepts to mine (dating trouble, school dances, class work issues, the fear of growing up, etc.). Most of the other popular toylines from Hasbro’s competitors are set in high-schools as well. It’s a recurring trend in kid’s toys, basically.
So, with the theatrical and home media releases of Equestria Girls having come and gone, I’d like to weigh in my thoughts about some of the odd narrative choices made in the film. These include topics of unfortunately missed opportunities for character growth or thematic intrigue, Sunset Shimmer as a foil to Twilight Sparkle, and an overview of where the film sits in terms of MLP’s existence as a brand in comparison to like-competitors such as Monster High and non-like peers such as Transformers.
Let me take this time to say that I did enjoy watching Equestria Girls and actually found it to be a very charming affair with great voice acting, as usual, some clever sight gags, and a solid enough take on the whole “human alternate universe” plotline. Still, the areas where missteps occur are notable and preventable enough that I feel a need to discuss them. I stress firmly that this is merely my personal breakdown of some of the narrative problems I had with Equestria Girls, it is not meant to be a slight on the film’s objective quality/entertainment value, nor a dig at its fans and appreciative viewers whatsoever.
Be advised that this is a critical, perhaps borderline caustic, essay so I will be placing it behind a “Read More”. As you may already expect, this comes with a hefty spoiler warning as well

"In truth, the entire cast began sleeping with each other…"
It’s a joke don’t take this seriously
Very interesting stuff, brought up a lot of points I’d never even considered before.
As a personal aside, I’m not really a fan of “Dog and Pony Show” (mostly due to the Diamond Dog’s touching, yelling at, and hitting of Rarity when she doesn’t seem able to quickly make them stop), but this video still did give me a lot of food for thought.
I don’t know why I made this.
I barely know who a steve blum is and have only seen scant few pony.

This has nothing to do with Transformers, but I would like to take this time to say that MLP Issue 8 was excellent and a phenomenal ending to the second comic arc.
If you’re a Luna fan, a Rarity fan, or just generally a fan of quality comics I highly recommend picking it up.
I never get tired of this piece…
"…Tony Fleecs’ Botcon-exclusive variant cover for "My Little Pony Micro Series" #5 featuring Pinkie Pie. In an unprecedented crossover between Hasbro’s "Transformers" and "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic," Pinkie Pie cosplays as Optimus Prime, dancing on the massive hand of the Big Bot himself, as he gives a quizzical tilt of his head. The variant cover will be available at this year’s Transformers Botcon in San Diego from June 27 - 30. The regular issue of "My Little Pony Micro Series" #5 written by Ted Anderson with interiors by Ben Bates hits stores June 26."
Well… That’s just Pie
yeeess I’m not the only one! :3
good ship. yes. yeeeeeeeeees.
The most honest and dazzling of all ships!
I’d been wanting to do a spoken version of demiurget’s double whammy dig at the Alicorn Twilight reactions and memories of Beast Wars past, and with the election season over, I figured now was as good a time as any.
All credit for the script goes to demiurget. Again, don’t take this too seriously.
You know it (๑・ω-)～♥”
