Basically what sets MLP apart from other girl shows is that it doesn't let itself fall into stereotypes of "what do girls like"; This is how its able to reach out to a wider audience. Twilight getting a boyfriend feels more like a move in the direction of all those other girl shows. Heck this whole equestiria girls special feels like that with it's typical high school setting. Its a direction that alot of fans have been fearing since the creator left the show, that the show would get bogged down by executive mandates as opposed to being driven by writers, which would is more likely to kill the show than improve it


What makes it worst though is that in twilight's case it doesn't feel very natural. First off, twilight has met many colts but has never shown even the slightest interest in pursuing a relationship... this would be unlike say, kim possible, who always showed an interest in dating. The second issue is that Twilight would be getting together with someone she only just met; for a character that showed no interest in developing such relationships, this in a way feels forced... if twilight were to get a coltfriend it seems more likely that it would be someone she actually got more time to know; like a character introduced in one season which would be followed by a whole season of them hinting at their growing relationship, which would be established later on if not in a future season.


Really, the only member of the mane 6 that feels like they would be suited to getting a coltfriend in a sudden manner like this, would be Rarity (though too spike's own disappointment). She's the only one that has shown enough interest in having a relationship with a colt that she would be willing to hook up with another pony in only an episode or two. Twilight and the other's? not so much.

Heck i would actually be more interested in such a move if it were rarity as it would help set her apart from the rest and make her feel even more unique. Heck in a way, i feel like the show might be getting TOO focused on twlight again... yes it started out with twilight as the lead character, but the show is at its best when it treats the characters as equals; heck twilight's letters to celestia i think were originally only there by executive mandate and the show feels better with them gone. Twilight becoming a princess was alright because that seemed to be where her character was going, but not EVERY new twist in the series has to be focused on her. So giving the coltfriend to someone else would help the other of the cast stand out.

Just started the series. And to be perfectly honest, it's actually not bad. Addictive in fact. I can see why it has such immense popularity. A buddy and me are going to marathon the series and then go see the movie on Sunday.

The Air Force Has a Brony Squadron:

"Earlier this month, word hit the Internet that an Air Force unit training to fly America’s
most advanced military aircraft are wearing a patch inspired by the television show My
Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

Now the Air Force has confirmed it: bronies are flying jets."

That's what happens when you reach the dreaded 65-Episode Rule.

It's not like that Twilight became a Mary Sue, a la Bella Swan. But I'm wondering if the status quo will still be the same.

The way I see it, it's like how Sailor Moon was revealed to be Princess Serenity, or how Luke Skywalker became a Jedi Knight.

It's probably fine if they could introduce a whole bunch of new elements (ie problems) that shows being an Alicorn isn't all that it's cracked up to be.

Though this still being a children-girls shows, it'll probably get boils down to "Twilight is still the same Twilight no matter what".

Saw it today on the HUB. While it was typical high school drama, it wasn't that bad, and I rather enjoyed seeing the ponies as young ladies.
I just hope they don't go that route all together!

Amazing world of gumball made fun of MLP, pretty much called it garbage. I guess they are jealous its more popular than their random as hell show? Kind of pathetic.

This is What a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Manga Looks Like:

"Given the popularity of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic amongst anime and
manga fans, it was inevitable that we'd eventually see a manga adaptation. After
lots of anticipation and lead-up, and flyers being distributed at Tokyo International
Anime Fair, it's finally here."

See:
