  • Dear Princess Celestia,

    Note: KingKool18436 is an obvious troll. Do not read his review.

    Today, I've learned that I should ignore trolls. All they want is attention, but they don't deserve any. Constructive criticism is nice, but being having an obviously biased opinion is not.

    Your faithful student, AG

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- But seriously, let's get into the review. While I was browsing Youtube about a year ago, I noticed that there were a lot of MLP avatars. I thought they were of women, at least, but no, they were grown men. I was like, what the hell? They couldn't possibly like this obviously pandering show. So, I avoided the show at all costs, essentially becoming an anti-brony. Then, on the 26th of July, 2013, I decided to watch an episode of the show, just to see how bad it was. I started with my brony friend's favorite episode, The Best Night Ever. I watched it, and my life changed forever. It had great animation, great characters, great comedy, a great song, and a great moral. I thought it may have been just a fluke episode, but I saw a few more episodes, and I got hooked. But why? Let's find out.

    First, let's talk about the characters. I'll be analyzing them from favorite to least favorite, except for Twilight Sparkle, as she's the main character. So Twilight is a bookish kind of pony, and also very intelligent, some episodes not withstanding. She likes to keep things neat, and she doesn't want to disappoint Celestia, her teacher. She's my fifth favorite of the Mane Six, because she has a lot of room for character development, which is not exactly used. She's also been an alicorn (a mix of pegasus and unicorn) since the Season Three finale, which has caused quite an uproar. As for me? I DON'T CARE.

    My least favorite character is Spike. He's basically a baby dragon that's Twilight's assistant. I don't really like him not because he's a bad character, but because he's portrayed badly in most of the episodes he's starring in.

  • My little pony the magic of making a good show

    9.0
    Before not in a million years would you have conviced me to watch an episode. But that was compromised when I sat down on my coach and watched it for what it was a good TV show. It's not for my age group it's for little girls. So I didn't exspect to like it as much as they did. But I did think the animation looks good and the color panel for this show reflects how good the animation is. It's simplistic but very well done. I think the characters are great remoldes for kids and each character has a very realistic flaw. The story seems intresting from what I've seen from the first two episodes but it's not my thing I'm not in love with the show. Becuase the whole time watching it seeing all those great things. something in the back of my end was telling me to turn off the TV becuase it felt like I was on the wrong chanel. That said it's the only reason I can't give it a ten. I think the voice acting was good and even the dialoge which in shows like these is very generic I thought was good. But it's to cute for my taste and thats where all my problems are focused. That and that this show does not deserve hate becuase it's not a bad show but people hate the idea that men in there 30s and 40s are watching this show aimed at little girls. And those people are not wrong. Overall great show don't think I'll be watching much more of it though.moreless
  • Overall, bad. This is the most horrible show on the face of the earth. 'Nuff said.

    1.0
    (I'm probably going to get crap loads of thumb downs, but hey, you shouldn't have decided to read this in the first place)



    So the show revolves around the land of Equestria which is obviously populated by ponies, unicorns and whatever. The protagonist is Twilight Sparkle who is studying the "magic" of friendship and sets off with her five pony friends: Applejack (Honesty), Fluttershy (Kindness), Pinkie Pie (Laughter), Rarity (Generosity), Rainbow Dash (Loyalty), and Twilight Sparkle herself (Magic, what did you expect?).



    Not only is this show bad, IT'S REALLY BAD. (AVGN reference right there) No, better yet, IT'S HORRENDOUS.



    First of all, people say the ponies are "cute". They aren't cute enough for me and don't fit standards.



    The music is so irritating that it gets stuck in my head, so I always have to mute the volume. Sheesh, not kidding with you right there.



    The "antagonists" are mediocre and overrated, really. The what-so-called "bad guys" are PISS poor excuse for antagonists. They are unlikeable and make Johnny Test villains more pathetic. A example is Discord. All he does is act so dense in front of everyone and asks the ponies to do stuff for him. He is called "Chaos of Desctruction", but all he does is pull pranks. Are you (pardon my language) fucking kidding me? You call that Chaos of Destruction? What were the staff smoking? Dope?



    The characters are annoying and have the personality of nothing but a lousy rock. The ones that make my blood boil the most, however, is Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie. And let's not mention Derpy. Whoop-dee-doo.



    Rainbow Dash is nothing but a rude, self-absorbed jerk (probably why most fans like her) who always complains, such as "Oh, I'm not scared of anything!" just to look cool in front of her friends.



    Pinkie Pie is a happy-go-lucky pink pony, but a very loud, high-pitched annoying pest who will never learn to shut her mouth every once in a while and her randomness doesn't really fit the show.



    Derpy, oh my gosh, WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN. All she was was an error, AND SHE GOT SO MANY FAME. Why in the holy mother of fuck is she so popular even though she's a damn background character? Why does she even have a fandom, for crying out loud? Shouldn't the fans worry about the protagonists MORE? Also, even if she's meant to be a stupid character (judging by the "wall eyes"), her voice is really annoying.



    Moving on to the art. OK, I'll admit that the artwork is actually good, but it can be bright usually.





    To make a long story short, my grade is an F. No, seriously. This show makes me wanna throw my TV out of my window.moreless
  • Executed very well

    You don't have to be a girl or brony to enjoy this show because it is so well done. It's no wonder why this show is so popular, got renewed, and still has a strong following. Heck you don't have to be a fan (which I don't consider myself to be) in order to admire this show. It earned its popularity and fan base. I will admit some episodes aren't as good (a few are a bit lame) as others but still it's one of the better shows out there. The animation is well done and the vast majority of the songs are charming and catching. Such music in cartoons is not something you commonly find too often these days. This is proof that males, teens, and adults can like something that is predominately meant for younger girls if executed properly as well as marketed. It also teaches good lessons and morals in tactful not overly preachy way and setting of good examples. Finding shows like these are real rarities these days (no pun intended).

    A male, teen, or adult really shouldn't feel embarrassed or ashamed to watch or enjoy this show. It is worth watching and technically enjoyable for all ages which is very uncommon for most shows today since many aren't appropriate or doesn't connect with folks.moreless
