…I think MLP is dead to me now.
So basically, Hasbro has taken a giant steaming diarrhea dump on Lauren Faust’s vision of what My Little Pony should be. This is exactly the type of brainless garbage that she planned to change when she recreated the show. Now look at this mess, this disastrous, Monster High wannabe, jellybean-coloured, skirt-wearing, boy-crazy, pallette swap character design filth that Hasbro is getting ready to shovel out just so they can re-establish that My Little Pony is just dumb shit for little girls. And to add insult to injury, it’s not even aesthetically pleasing.
This is simply terrible, and Hasbro, the writers and the voice actors should feel terrible for creating, producing and working on such uninspired, stereotypical, mindless, cliche drivel and then chaining it to the ankle of the popularity and creativity of FiM. The only thing that I hold in awe about Equestria Girls is Hasbro’s ability to take the pure storytelling gold of FiM and twist it into a boring, sexist, ultimately forgetable ripoff of almost every tween highschool show ever written since Bratz.
And what pukes up my ass even more is the fuckers using the No True Scotsman fallacy, telling those who complain that if they were REAL fans, they’d eat this shit up with a golden spork, and the people saying we’re just mad because the ponies are poorly humanized. Excuse me? If we’re “real fans”, we need to watch it and enjoy it? FUCK YOU. No, being fans is not the same thing as being fucking sheep. It’s not even about them being humanized, you tool, it’s about the whole thing being dumbed down and insulting not just to us but to young girls, riding the coattails of FiM’s popularity and success while simultaneously resurrecting what Lauren worked so hard to change.
I hope Hasbro and Megan McCarthy are proud of themselves. With this shit and season 3, they’ve warped FiM into exactly what Lauren never wanted it to be.
On another note, am I the only one really not getting, if it takes place in a human setting, why it’s even called Equestria Girls, outside of “Hehehe, it’s the name of a brony-favourite parody of California Girls so that makes it totally fitting and amusing here!”? It makes about as much sense and has about as much logic behind it as if they decided to call it Bridlemaids.
Yeah but Bronies hate that they’re human, now! It’s no different than Bratz or Monster High!
actually I kinda like monster high it has some neat characters
Brony hate for EG is just as funny as passing gay marriage in Michele Bachmann’s home state! Sweet irony
