    Watches MLP: A New Generation


    Sunny Starschout asks, "Daddy, tell me the story of the Princess of Friendship and the Pirate King Pony again."

    Her father, Argyle Starshine, happily complies. "Of course, sweetheart. Which one would you like to hear? The tale of Discord's Defeat; the story Enies Lobby's Folly; the Canterlot Conflict; the Clash at the Crystal Empire...."

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Mostly for my US readers, but for everyone else too!

    I wonder what a ponified Thanksgiving would be? What would its history be like, and how could it be celebrated in unique ways by the Mane cast and other ponies. I'm sure Hearth's Warming counts as a collective Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday, but Christmas gets its time (and then some) so why can't there be some sort of feast day for ponies.

    One Piece: Stampede

    Just got to see it (subbed)! Gotta see it again though, there's so much! Next time, it'll be dubbed.

    It is a true testament to the franchise celebrating a 20-year long anime run.
    It was such a blast!

    If you're a One Piece fan, this movie will not disappoint!

    MLP: NiM News @ 3

    Because that's when I decided to write this :derpytongue2:

    So, an update on the Friendship Chronicles,
    Since I gave you guys an early release last week, that you all deserved by the way, and because this weekend I'll be busy with work and [insert city name] Comic-Con, there will be no update tomorrow. But don't worry...

MLP the Movie and Nakama is Magic · 5:32pm Oct 6th, 2017

So, I've never done a blog on here, but I think this movie is a good enough reason to write one.

I'm sure many of you are going out to see the movie, so I'll keep my thoughts spoiler free. So, what did I think of the movie?

I thought it was good. Not great, but definitely good

The story is pretty standard; the basic adventure quest. Honestly, it would have been boring if not for the wonderful characters that drive much of it. Both old and new. The Mane Six and Spike are pretty one point, though I think Fluttershy might have gotten the short end of the stick. I like the new characters, and I like Capper the most! The air pirates coming in at a strong second (I wonder why :derpytongue2: ). I kinda wish Tempest and her little lacky guy were a bit closer, friend-wise. Like, I understand why, but it seemed like these two could be friends. The Storm King looks cool, can be funny, but it unfortunately just a standard villain. Even Tempest is kinda standard if only for motivation.

Other than that, everything looks great! And with many callouts and cameos littered about early one. I'd definitely recommend that you see it.

Now, the main point: Nakama is Magic.
Though - slightly - officially retired from this story. I thought I'd also give an opinion on how this movie effects it

Short answer; it doesn't.

The only key thing about the movie is the unicorn horn, and I've already decided in my world they grow back over time. But, producing magic becomes risky and hazardous. Kinda like how shown in the movie. Should if I ever restart this project and get to that point, I've got a pretty good idea on how to make up a permanent loss of horn.

I'm sure none of you really thought about it, but I wanted to leave my thoughts on this somewhere. Just in case.

But tell me,
What did you think of the MLP movie?

Personally, I think the story could use fewer songs and more story. Like, for example, a longer run-time of the Mane Six being sea ponies (you'll find out how long when you go see it.) Also, the Storm King isn't as threatening as Tirek. If the Storm King acted more like a villain than a spoiled child as well as giving him more screen time would have made him an impressive villain. But that is my opinion.

I agree a little
I don’t think the songs were bad, but more story would’ve been better. Maybe a bit more time on our new characters or the world around the Mane Six. Definitely could have been used on the Storm King.

Honestly, I don’t mind that they didn’t stay sea ponies for long. I was more interested in the hippogriff part.

KO I think the movie is great and hope your new story coming along well!
