Forums - General Discussion - VGChartz's Official My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic thread!

I'm surprised and disappointed that there isn't already a thread for lovers of MLP:FiM to discuss the latest episodes, or even to attract new people into the herd :)

Most people clicking here are going to be confused to say the least - I mean, isn't MLP a show for little girls? Grown manly men like us have no reason or motication to watch what amounts to a kids show; not just a kids show, but one aimed at little girls. I don't mind though. Why? Because this is the reaction that I, and most male viewers of the series had when we were introduced as well. Some might argue that the main demographic that watches MLP are males ages 15-35. That's right - this show, targeted at little girls has what amounts to a cult following. Many websites have popped up dedicated to MLP, including Ponychan (one of the few "chans" where people are actually friendly) and Equestria Daily. These sites produce huge amounts of fan made material, from remixes of songs to fanfiction.

Why give this show a try? Well, the characters are surprisingly complex and well developed for a kids show, and the art has a charm that recall to mind older catroon series - the music is great too! It's almost impossible to describe with words, so you'll have to watch my recommended episodes to get the idea :)

Please no trolling/hating in this topic - it's supposed to be a friendly thread. Everyone feel free to post your opinion of the show though :D (so long as it's not inflammatory)

Have you been spying on my wall? :-p

Apparently we already had two. But I'm glad for a new one :D

In my spare time, I frequent Knowyourmeme, randomly hitting the "random" button.

I came across this "Friendship is Magic" mlp a couple days ago". I still don't know what it is.

You should just finally make this one official. Everyone wants it here. Do not know what you would do with it, but yeah it is wanted.

I want a My little Pony in some Nintendo games!

 Bananaking was right, I was wrong. Like he always is. About the 3DS not selling at least 19.999 million in 2013...

There you go then! Or just pull a happyD and make it the unofficial thread.

I made a bet with JoeTheBro on February 19, 2014. I say the 3DS will outsell the PS4 at least one month in 2014, he says the 3DS won't. Whoever is right gets to control the other person's sig for a month.
