Honorary brony status? Love and respect <3
You should definitely watch a few episodes from season one.

Bridal Gossip and Dragonshy are good starting points anyways. Call of the Cutie is also a good starting point if you care more about the Cutie Mark Crusaders. Which reminds me, Cutie Mark Crusaders awoke Discord, nice job dictionary and chicken and Apple Bloom...

Dragonshy is the episode that made me a brony. What episodes got you guys to watch the rest of the show?

Well, actually, I can vaguely remember watching the first episode in like May or something. I just thought it was a stupid fad then with funny reaction faces, and I just sort of shrugged it off, never really though it would catch on.

Look at me now.

Chocolate Rain.

The instance My Little Pony became acutely aware of it's internet demographic.

I know right? Come on, everyone single one of you thought that to yourself while watching that episode for the first time.

It makes sense to her character, don't you agree?

Bitch is crazy...she'll eat hot sauce cupcakes, she'll chow down on some chocolate rain.

Which btw, the show makes me curious as to how cotton candy and chocolate milk go together. LIKE A GIVE A FUCK, DIABETES.

Haven't you noticed she's always the character "breaking the 4th wall" in the show? Also, in Equestria Girls, she's the singer and she's the one that mentions bronies.

Pinkie Pie is basically like the creator's subtle winks to the audience.

Haha, I noticed.

Haha, yea indeed. Laughed a bit when she didn't want to share the cotton candy. Didn't think she would be that greedy on it. Usually she enjoys sharing some snack food and candy with others.

For me, it was actually watching the Sonic Rainboom scene to Guile's Theme on YouTube.

Hey anyway listen in to True Capitalist radio? Coleknows and I did. I actually didn't know he was going to be there. Totally worth the wait just to hear him give a shout out to "ZERO ZERO ZERO TWILIGHT SPARKLE" Anyway, we should all tune in tomorrow. NG bronies ftw.

Chemich here, long time Brony (before I even knew what a Brony was that is.) Always love MLP, even the first gen. I spread the friendship wherever I go. :)


taking the internet seriously is the biggest sin one could commit on a forum.

This is him. He's a racist, brony hating idiot. It's funny to troll him because he gets so angry, as you'll see in this video. Most of the trolling people do against him involve audio-splicing, which he really hates. I recommend you come in tomorrow. It's pretty crazy.

Warning, the video above features some pretty strong language.

Good laugh there. He sounds more like an idiot than anything else. To be honest I'd rather be spreading friendship though if I was given that same choice. I rarely even talk about My Little Pony much. I bring it up from time to time though to hear the opinions on it anyways. That Ghost guy on youtube sounds like a big cry baby though, hilarious.

Going to agree. Replacing Vader's voice with Fluttershy serves as being more humorous than replacing Frodo's with Twilight's voice.

You know the whole MLP fad was started a joke raid from the 4chan board /co/, right guys?

Everyone that follows this "brony" trend, just got trolled big time.

Everypony knows that. If you actually watched the show with an open mind, you would be able to see that it's actually good. The reason this thread exists is to keep all the pony threads strictly to 1, and to keep out haters.

Since monday MLP airs on Nick jr here in germanyland.
At 10:30 AM.
Good thing I didn't have much school today, so I was on time to watch it for the first time.
The voices are alright, could be better, though I'm positively surprised by Fluttershy's. And Spike's VA is the same we got for Timmy Turner over here, so that's cool. Some jokes have been lost because of the translation and Applejack lost her accent. I like that they kept the english names though.


In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

Really? Then why keep doing this whole "brony" business. Do you have such a strong urge to "belong" in some kind of group?

Who says I haven't?

I aint a hater yo'. I don't give a shit.
I'm just checking in on you guys to see why you're taking things so far.

Any of you guys frequent ponychan by any chance?

Except they failed miserably.

Exactly. That is why I'm so confused by people who get into this. I'm not saying it's a bad thing.
A fad is a fad.

It's just confusing that people picked it up because of such a silly thing. It's like it's not about the show, but about the whole image.

How involved can one be in a show? I adore adventure time, but I don't see any clubs for that out there or whatever.

A reminder to people in this thread. Please do not respond to trolls. They are just flame baiting you and it will result in them talking in a circle of insults.

Yeah I will admit that it is strange that many people picked up on the show because of its fad status. I will admit that is how I came across the show and I love the show for the show, not for its fad status. There are those who do love it because it is a fad, a group of people they can rally with and be friends with.

Yes I have made some new friends due to this show and have talked about this show with them. However the subject does change over to other animated shows. Most people who watch the show tend to be fans of animation and they're great people. Is it the best animated show of all time. No, but given what the creators had to work with they actually made a legitimate show out of this instead of just playing the corporate toy card.

How involved can one be in a show? I adore adventure time, but I don't see any clubs for that out there or whatever.

True, but you could go and create one.

I don't watch the show because it's a fad, I watch the show because I like it.
