Spoilers below the break!



I was watching the episode with a friend who is a big anime fan, and she pointed out that these are all anime characters. She's a lot more of an expert on this than I am, but even I agreed that the first pony from the left had to be Sailor Moon. The second she thought might be a Pokemon character, but not sure. The third one along, she recognized as Inuyasha. The fourth I thought looked kind of like Kirisame Marisa, but probably isn't. And after a lot of thought, she decided that the fifth was Ranma.

What do you think?

A friend of mine told me that second is Rei from Evangelion and third is Utena from Revolutnary Girl Utena.

The fourth is Bulma's original design from Dragonball.

NO that's Rei from Eva Neon Gelion *I can't spell the last part*

3. Not from Inyasha, it's from an anime where the characters are named after Countries, i don't know what it's called.

4 is Bulma from Dragon Ball

Other than that, you are right.

Looks like I get to live up to my handle.

From left to right: Usagi Tsukino (Sailor Moon,) Rei Ayanami (Neon Genesis Evangelion,) Utena Tenjou (Revolutionary Girl Utena,) Bulma Briefs (Dragonball,) and Ranma Saotome (Ranma 1/2.)

Assuming the Equestrian versions are largely similar to their Earth analogues, this leads to some interesting implications:

• Usagi implies that the Equestrian solar system has additional planets, to account for the other Sailor Scouts/Senshi.
• Rei implies that somewhere in Neighpon is a stallion who went seriously off his meds. Also, the Kaballah is a thing in Equestria. The Sephirot might be based on the Tree of Harmony.
• Utena and Ranma imply that there are gender dynamic issues worth exploring in this world, with varying degrees of seriousness.
• Bulma implies that Journey to the West is a thing on this world.

From left to right: cute, cute, cute, cute.. and cute :heart:

You're thinking of "Hetalia."

Okay, that's what it's called. I never really heard of it. I recognized it, as well as i knew the character was from there. It was the name that threw me off.

Definitely an interesting episode.

I'm not sure that's Derpy. Wrong eye colour.

Oh, that costume is precious! :heart:

3409960 THANKS FOR SHARING THIS! I DIDN'T SEE IT! I CAN'T BELIEVE I DIDN'T SEE IT!

3409179 You're thinking of Hetalia, but no that's not it.

Sailor Moon, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Dragonball, and Ranma 1/2. Fluttershy has very interesting anime taste.
