It safe to say My Little Pony succeed where K-On! failed. As for K-On! it was obviously made for men but at the end preteen girls who appreciated it better. Why? At least from some men I met they said K-On! is too girly for their liking and not to mention there is too few fanservice to speak of.
The humor in K-On! is very 'clean', whereas MLP humor often references a lot of geek culture, which men really appreciate. Isn't there also far more action in MLP?
