Pinkie knows what's right from wrong, (ex. when she requests to call off the prank on Fluttershy) therefore she is not insane. She is also more compassionate, so her answer to Rainbow Dash wanting to go home was just off tone. It just seemed like the author was looking for excuses to add details of the gruesome violence, much like that manga/anime Elfen Lied.

He means she keeps in character while doing all the torturing etc. Yes her character isn't a torturer and knows whats right from wrong. However the way she does everything in cupcakes keeps to what she is like, if she thought what she did was right. Which in the fiction it is as she says something along the lines of "We have our jobs and we have to do them, we might not like it and at times I just want to go home, but in the end we have our jobs to do and we can't run from our responsibility" Pinkie Pie in the fiction truly believes she is doing the right thing. Which makes everything she does and say actually work for her.
It is a perfect example of her character, if her character had a psychotic view on reality.

Everything in the next season will be directed towards Bronies and because the people who create the show know about Bronies, things will probably change. Just saying...

It might change a lil bit, but not for the worst IMO. I think they know what is good and will keep it coming.

Well like any TV show it will start to lose its fans and probably the attention of it's targeted audience. I doubt that will happen though due to the characters they have.

So people who like a show and are doing no real harm to you are annoying and persistent people. Hmm. Not sure if you're trolling or are just stupid. I could go either way, but it's Newgrounds so who really gives a flying fuck.

I am proud to say that after learning about it on the Internet so much, I finally went up and watched the dang thing on YouTube. I am glad to say that it is a fantastic show because it has some of the best animation I have ever seen in a show, not to mention fantastic voice acting and plenty of unpredictable events and all-around cuteness! It's probably the cutest thing I have ever seen in my life and I've seen a lot!

except you're everywhere, there's loads of specially designed boards and places where you could go and discuss this children's show. but you stick around the forums where nobody wants it.

most of you are borderline furry/paedophile anyway, so maybe i was wrong in saying that. this whole thing is just a thin veil for your disgusting habits that people don't accept. like me starting a serious discussion about dora the explorer because i have a fetish for 3 year old mexican girls, but doing it on every website i can think of.

Not sure if you're trolling or are just stupid.

You know I could respond by saying that for the most part (there probably are sickos out there though) that a good group of people do not have fetishes for My Little Pony and are not furries.

However trolling has come to this thread and I don't doubt that it will be locked any minute now.

Mods- Please don't lock this thread because of the annoying trolls on this page.
Fellow Bronies- Ignore them like we did on earlier pages and I'm sure they'll eventually go away, we don't want our thread locked because of these jerks, do we?
Anyways, I was watching one of my horses walk and I thought about how the ponies walk then realized that they actually walk almost exactly like real horses. I appreciate the animation of the show so much more now because of that.

They won't change the show to fit an older audience, for a few reasons, first they didn't allow a lot of stuff as it was and had it changed to appeal more to the younger audience, like changing duke blueblood to nephew etc. so they won't go ahead and change the whole thing to fit an older audience, second most of their fanbase is likely still younger as it is as it was made for them in mind, and finally and most importantly I think they are able to tell that we like the show AS IT IS and that changing it wouldn't be good as we like it AS IT IS, I think anyone who actually has a media interest or qualification or job can tell not to make something change if its perfect as it is. If they changed it not only would they be destroying their main market, but also the older market to.

yes they will likely add in small things, like all cartoons do, Rugrats for example had loads of material in it you didnt get unless you were older, so they will shove stuff in for the older audiences, but they wont change it, unless they are idiots (which I doubt they are.)

It's just good writing. The characters have depth and likability to them...moreover, the show is wonderful escapism to the misery that is every-day happenings. One could immerse themselves, at any age, into this world where race, sex, and bigotry are basically irrelevant. It's peaceful, colorful, and overall positive and happy.

It's a fantasy world.

I hated Twilight Sparkle until it became evident that she was the brainy one, with incredibly competent abilities, and overall a level-head. She has her flaws, but she fucking saved the world from eternal darkness...why does everybody on the show forget that? She also got rid of a giant monster bear. Never acknowledged again. wtf...

I didn't like Pinkie Pie at all until I got used to her quirkiness. Her going insane when people were ignoring her was awesome too, but I'm generally annoyed by her songs.

I liked Applejack from the beginning. Same with Rainbow Dash, and I don't care if she's a dyke or not.

I didn't like Fluttershy at first until I realized she's just an innocent ultra-hippy. With Aquaman-like powers in communicating with animals through sheer charm.

I hated Rarity....absolutely loathed her.... until the episode where she was making all her friends dresses and they were never satisfied. Then I completely related to her, because the client NEVER knows what they really want. That's why they hire the creative talent. Even professor's warned in the industry they'll commonly just say "make it cool" and the talent is left befuddled...just like Rarity when Rainbow Dash was like "needs to be 20% more cooler." You can't work with that kind of direction but it happens ALL THE TIME and the client has to be right.

Spike needs to grow up, Luna dropped off the fucking map after the pilot, Celestia needs more depth, the great and powerful Trixie needs to become a villain, that Gryphon needs to return, there needs to be more, stronger male characters, the cutie mark crusaders are somehow adorable, and I have no shame in admitting it's a damn good show. Can't wait for season 2.

I just dont like songs in general

and I don't care if she's a dyke or not.

WHY! WHO THE FUCK SAYS, JUST BECAUSE GIRL IS SPORTY AND FEMINST DOESNT EQUAL LESBIAN! those damn lesbian fan fics writing bastards!

Spike needs to grow up

telling a baby to grow up? ok he can talk so hes basicaly a really smart baby but still

Can't wait for season 2.

Personally I found Fluttershy and Rarity to not be as enjoyable to begin with, but the more I watched and then with fanfiction etc it really started to make me love them, I began to love their characters and personality and how they acted etc. Sadly it is so easy to overlook those two over the course of the show as they don't get as many hyped moments as the others. They have become some of my favourite characters as the months have gone past.

Spike is actually in a bad position I think as well as many others, he is always left begind made to do all the work never taken to anything interesting or fun, and gets made ill while the others just laugh at him etc. Spike is really overlooked despite being in a position with the cast where he really should have more love.
Luna defiantly needs more screen time, she is the second cutest next to Fluttershy and really deserves the love that she was originally refused 1000 years ago, and is now being refused again.

Also, The Great And Powerful Trixie is no antagonist!
