Art, Now with More Pony

Featured image: “Innocence” by LimreiArt.

Probably past time we had some ponies around here. I was a Brony for a few years, and I was really into it. I was collecting toys, comics, books … I became what we might call a “story completist.” I wasn’t interested in acquiring all the merchandise I could, but I wanted anything that resembled a canonical narrative thread, and I was trying to piece it all together into a coherent world.

It’s a funny thing about My Little Pony: it seems to drive certain sorts of guys to obsessive worldbuilding.

Anyway, I ultimately burned out and returned to my first love, which of course is magical girl anime. It’s now been a few years since I’ve even looked at the MLP franchise. Still, I wouldn’t mind getting back into it in a more casual fashion, especially since it has its own magical girl spinoff, Equestria Girls.

I wanted to write another review tonight, but I had a paper to edit and turn in instead. I should find time for more reviews later in the week.

Ciao.

    I feel as though I am one of the few fans from 2012 and earlier who never truly burnt out. Indeed, had Lauren Faust stuck around to see her show to completion, I would gladly have kept watching and obsessing over the thing beyond the middle of Season 4. The real reason that I stopped watching is because my ticker just couldn’t take the accumulating plot holes.
