Because there are some crazy folk who like to see beneath the average skin of life, the blood and guts of living things. The stuff you'll never really see yet is a truth in existence...hidden.

Medical reasons for it don't count.

This.

plus muh testosterone!

- The Late 90's/2000's cartoon feel
- The characters (Pinkie feels less annoying and more charming over time)
- The fight scene in the S4 finale
- The universe
- The cute
- The innocence

Fandom appeal:

I don't HATE gore (one of my favorite MLP fanvideos has lots of it) but sometimes a nice break from it is good.

Unless you are referring to Gore Gorath.


My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic - Rebag102 - 06-22-2014 11:45 AM

Gore gorath?

Gore gorath and I go way back. We went to different schools together.

I can tell you mlp has nothing on the 90s cartoons those things were filthy, also this show is for girls literally go look the target audience it's young girls. These are supposed to be dainty and feminine. You people are even hated on hardcore by mainstream


My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic - Rebag102 - 06-23-2014 05:59 AM

It's made for the ENTIRE FAMILY

I'm mainly referring to the Classic Cartoon Network (Dexter's Lab, Powerpuff Girls, Foster's [I said '00s and '90s,] and even a little bit of Ed Edd n' Eddy.) Maybe a little of the Disney Channel cartoons too, but I'll give you that FiM isn't like classic Nickelodeon, but I don't think of Classic Nick when I think '90s cartoons.

I would comment on your assumption of it being for little girls, but then we'd both get banned and the thread deleted.

First of all, morals are merely a social construct, boundries. They are not inherently good nor bad, though often they obstruct and inhibit individuals. In which way should morals make something more appealing?
Second, blood can make a show way more interesting. No need to sugarcoat things - like it happened in the A-Team, where all those fights did not end in bloody mouths, beaten eyes, broken arms and broken rips. It would be bad for this kind of target audience though(little girls and their concerened moms).
I won't adress Mr. G.G. for he does not concern me the slightest. But I don't see and "90's cartoon feel" in any of the episodes ... well, the 5 minutes I could stand to watch after skipping the intro song.
One scene to justify the appeal of a whole damned series? Seriously? It's like justifying GoT with the sentence "That awesome scene where joffrey dies from poison which was given to him by that old lady".
Now or the universe, well. That depends strongly on the person.
Cuteness and Innocence. Appealing to appearantly more than just little girls and their concerened moms, but also to W.K. fedoras.

I don't really know how the hell those fanvideos should be badass. Well, theres one thing, the fine line between doing something badass and something insanely idiotic/stupid. Often these two things intersect, like jumping from a giant building and trusting nothing more than a parachute. Which is more awesome than to make a video about a child show about ponies.
The community seems to be weird to say at least. Also very delusioned.
For the art, well, art is art. Can't argue about that. Porn is also art, but most people probably won't accept that.
Wheres the appeal in analysis videos? Dude, ever watched T.V. during the World Cup (which was supplemented with the Super Bowl in the USA)? They overanalyze every damned little detail, producing nothing more than mere hot air and wasting oxygen.
After the Twilight series, I am quite eerie of fan fictions. They, in many cases, represent the storytelling skills of a cat with the brain of a 4-year-old human.


Now seriously, where the damned hell is appeal in this show?

Discussion's fine, but please keep it civil.

SV was banned for throwing this advice out the window. Do not follow him.

As for the show's appeal, I haven't actually seen it. I would imagine that any fan would be able to tell you what aspect of the show appeals to them, so it would be a bit of a stretch to say no appeal exists.


RE: My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic - aCol - 06-23-2014 08:10 AM

Who do you mean with "him"? Are you attacking my religion? Are you telling me not to follow Jesus?

Or are you telling me not to hail to the king (or King Asshole for that matter).

Well, I watched for a limited period of time (5 minutes, which translates into 300 seconds) and found it annoying. Big time. It just seems like a waste of time. "Oh my god its talking ponies!" - how is that *not* the stereotypical little girls dream (until the pony tells the girl she's fat. That's where the lasagna comes in).

Your quarrel with SV is most entertaining by the way. He does provoke interesting reactions...though he's right on at least one thing, the target audience of MLP was little girls (at least in the beginning).
That has even been stated on wikipedia with citations...(In effect following line: "Despite the target demographic of young girls and their parents,[100][130] My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic has become an Internet phenomenon, with many male fans between 13 and 35.[131] ").
I wonder what one calls a "brony" over the age of 35. A weirdo maybe?

By the way, banning people over nothing more than a mere childrens show? Sounds like its become more of an "my opinion is right and if you disagree than you shalt be banned" than an anti-schooling movement.
So basically the same as the people you think you oppose.

He banned him because he completely ignored the warning and was insulting all bronies, he also told me to commit suicide and called me gay


RE: My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic - no - 06-23-2014 10:10 AM

Ahh, this shit again.

Who gives a fuck what the target audience is? "X is intended for Y" does not mean that Y is the entire extent of everything that can happen with it and if Z gets involved it is a universe-rending abomination. If that were the case MacGyver would be public enemy number one.

BTW I don't really like the show any more. I used to but now find it very in-your-face and blunt. I don't know if I'll be able to watch the rest of S4 because of this fact. HOWEVER, MLP did get me through a tough point in my life. I'm not sure if I'd be alive today if not for some of the people whose opinion of me went from "guy to avoid" to "all right guy I guess" when they found out I was a brony. And when I started liking the show and fandom less, I started examining my beliefs to see whether they were a. a good match for this group is was purportedly a member of, and b. whether or not they were correct. I had never achieved this level of introspection before that and I'm not sure I ever would have if I hadn't been a brony and had those conflicts. Maybe I would have had some other experience in its place, I don't know.

Yes, I have some merchandise. Even if I never watch another episode in my life, I will still wear the shirts and hug the plushes and if the fact that I happen to have been born with a dick means I am a "weirdo" or a "pervert" for doing so, so be it.

*slinks back to cave to await ban*

Porn was intended for men.

But I'm pretty sure there are women who watch it.
(In fact enough that there is now porn made for women).

Now seriously, where the damned hell is appeal in this show?

1. True.
2. But substanceless blood? I like blood too, but a break is nice.
3. Mostly the character tropes. Smart one, dumb one, farm one, nice one, fashion-obssesed one. The only one who's basic description is not a '00s cartoon trope is Rainbow Dash. Also, I wasn't talking about '90s cartoons as much as I was talking about '00s cartoons that started in the '90s.
4. I don't know why I put that there either.
5. Yep.
6. Da fuq? I understand not liking innocence, but who doesn't like adorable things?

7. Smile HD, PONY.MOV, or Snowdrop.
8. That's the 50% I wasn't talking about.
9. Yep.
10. Trust me. It's a LOT more interesting than Sports Analysis. Come back once you've watched one of these (not MLP, but similar concept: https://www.youtube.com/user/MatthewPatrick13 )
11. That's why I said 10%. Also, Twilight fans are more delusional because most of them want to hav hawt s3x with Edward and make fanfics of it. It's easier to find MLP fanfics that aren't about pairings or self-inserts because it is NOT A romance show. Same with Skyrim, Call of Duty, Minecraft, Game of Thrones, The Hobbit and anything that isn't about love or sex (except Sonic.)
