MLP GENERATION 5 IS OUT
I'm a piece of shit, and only spread shit, so here is the gen5 trailerhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2I5HtYlwrQ
Besides the ugly designs for these background characters, what canon reason would there be for no magic among the unicorns? I assume earth ponies simply have forgotten their magic in the age of industrialism, but if they are riding off of the original canon to build this world, this is impossible. The reason windigos don’t show up can be explained away, but the ponies being separated did not reduce their magic, because they still had to operate the sun and moon before Celestia and Luna arrived.
Perhaps there is a different explanation, but the set up that they only have magic when they are friends is just too low of a hanging fruit for them to not be using here.
It's hard to tell this early on from just a trailer. In general, I don't like trailers because they, in of themselves, have a bland formula so the product seem bland.
We'll simply have to see if it's any good or not. Don't really like that the ponies look like their toy horse versions of themselves while in the series, though.
And the universe feels more like our universe but with ponies but again, it's too early to tell for me.
Of course, the idea that a unicorn would waltz into earth pony territory and everyone would panic, like both of these things in this setting, are bit strange. Stranger yet, is that this unicorn that did this later in the same trailer informs us that the pegasi are bad news.
But I guess it's a cartoon for kids and I guess it's reminicent to when Zecora walked into ponyville.
>For a new breed.
I expected Anons to overreact, but this is actually kind of funny.
The last few seasons of the show were already shit. The new generation being different or less good is nothing to mourn for.
I think it's that all magic in Equestria has vanished. It's the same reason the pegasi couldn't fly.
what sort of vapid soulless corpo tripe is this?
What motivates the characters, other than "go here to fix this, yay!!"? What struggle does sunny have to face internally? It appears that she's antiracist from the start, and the world will unfold to match her expectations. What makes sunny and izzy the main characters? Anypony could be swapped out to go on this quest, from what I can tell so far from the trailer.
It feels like trolls or countless other recent movies where there's exactly zero substance, but that's covered up by forgettable "funny moments".
And what's with the tech? Why do media execs seem to think smartphones are the only way kids can relate to shows now? The only time I've EVER seen smartphones be used in a fantasy setting in an interesting way is Amphibia. Everywhere else, it's used for gags and stale references to irl social media platforms.
No one will remember this movie in 2 years. No one will stick around its "fandom". People are projecting the magic of FiM into their expectations of this hollow cash-grab. Hate to bear bad news, but it was special for a reason, and that reason ain't reflected in the G5 trailer in ANY way so far.
I DO NOT CONSENT TO HASBRO
HEREBY MY SOUL IS SEVERED FROM THEIR CONTRACT
Hasbro has always been a sack of shit. Stick to the roots. Long live the community.
They really did nerf the ass area, didn't they?
no. its actually great desing and unicorns are no longer master race anymore>>315677
thats actually a nice thing. >>315689
these are probably bait. which thread is this?>>315691
i was thinking about it could be better. like the sonic movie
Should've listened to Faust, smh.
I can imagine how much buzz /mlp/ is making... Guess it's one of those days in a year to visit 4chan again.
Her body has a shape of a fucking pi number. And are the front hooves perpendicular to her torso? That's downright disgusting and unfappable.
Jesus Christ it is worse than what I could ever imagine.
Yes hasbro has shamed themselves and us,by putting out this disgusting abomination.
At least we all agree this is shit. There is no second guessing the obvious, which is comforting.
It looks serviceable and I am overall indifferent
Might only watch it to know the characters in case an interesting piece of art of fanfic or something forces me to watch it in order to get it
It is sad. I will miss G4
G4 is still in my heart. I only wish I had a chance to be a part of the early fandom back in 2011-2015. Too bad I wasn't...
It is the same with me. I didn’t really get into the ponies until 2017
I watched the show when it first came out, although I wasn't a "lurks pony sites every day" fan back then.
Back in 2013 I had some urges to get it on with the brony hype but supressed them. Thought that ponies was a gay thing to like and cucked out. It is only now that I understand the error of my ways.
I can still find sollace in reading the archived post on desuarchive and reading very old grotesque luna horror stories on fimfic.
this is why i love russians so much
be my bf
>>315689>if you die after date you're stuck with bad
that implies I subscribe to Hasjew's canon, which I haven't for more years than I have at this point. Seethe and cope, officialniggers
>>315672>what canon reason would there be
All of this operates on the assumption they care about continuity, which we already know they don't. So what were you expecting?
same, I got into ponies a little late. hasbro is tiresome but they can't take away my enjoyment of snowpity
bro you forgot to say nohomo...
Some of this animation isn't that bad.
This fandom is about to have its "Legend of Korra" moment. And of course the entire thing will carry a strong leftist, anti-racist message which was never necessary in the original.
To be fair, it's been like that since S8, ironically tho, S8 and 9 did brought ponies as White people into the canon, even tho it was already obvious from season 1, they basically said, yes, Equestria was a white ethno-state this whole time, mlpol was right afterall, what a shocker!
Does Izzy moonbeam like Israel?
Its....not as political as i thought but it looks really generic. Its not 100% bad to be honest but not really mind blowing either. IF anything its kind of disapointing.
>>316773>strong leftist, anti-racist message which was never necessary in the original
I mean, you might consider this a rehash of the Three Tribes play episode, which is clearly what this is based off of.
It appears to be that the difference here is that pegasi, unicorns and earth ponies living apart somehow deprives them of their magic, instead of making the world into an icy shithole.
Tbh, I'm more concerned with how bland it looks.
>>316822>It appears to be that the difference here is that pegasi, unicorns and earth ponies living apart somehow deprives them of their magic
But, the trailer doesn't make any sense in the first place. It starts with saying that the three horse races used to be united, but no longer are.<So, something caused the horses to be separated.
Then everyone runs from the unicorn girl because "Unicorn attack
".<Which implies that the unicorns did something to the Earth ponies in recent enough history to make everyone scared as Hell.
Then, the unicorns lost their magic sometime recently.<Meaning that the magic has nothing to do with the two races being friends
And, even the unicorns are scared of the pegusi.<Meaning that Pegusi and the remaining ponies had some sort of falling out, before the "Unicorn war"[/i]
So, what the trailer is setting up boils down to:
>Pegusi told the remaining ponies to Fuck off and built some super-advanced society while ignoring the other two races.
>Unicorns went to war with the Earth ponies over who knows what, and scaring the Earth ponies for generations to come while the unicorns were living in a fantasy world.
>Then, sometime after the "Unicorn war" but closer to a couple years before the movie, the Unicorns suddenly lost their magic.
All this implies that friendship has NOTHING to do with magic in this series, so all the races getting back together should contribute towards solving NOTHING. If they're trying to set this up as some sort of "anti-racist" messaging, they failed from the start.
A thing I'm pissed about is the story book mentions when the magic returns how the unicorns and pegasi can feel the magic return and shows them with rainbow glowing horns and wings respectively yet doesn't mention anything about earth ponies. Were already the bottom rung for villains where all the earth pony villains were mostly some dicks who had to learn some humility or bugger off while unicorn villains tried to upend the very fabric of time and reality. Then got the fandom where earth ponies are the bottom tier since you got flying and weather manipulation and limitless magic but no one wants earth ponies to have anything and if you so much as dare mention they may be a bit stronger and be able to grow stuff like crystals and plants quickly they shut you down.
If G5 confirms earth ponies are a useless subrace that has nothing special or redeeming about them then it flies in the face of the whole message. They should want everyone else to be deprived of magic then since in a world with magic they are a lower caste that is absolutely powerless and entirely at the mercy of their magic and more evolved betters.
>>316838>They should want everyone else to be deprived of magic then since in a world with magic they are a lower caste that is absolutely powerless and entirely at the mercy of their magic and more evolved betters.
...but that isn't toyetic
What I want to know is what the fuck happened to the Alicorns? Did they all die due to lack of magic? Were they sealed away or petrified by a villain or something? There's no way they would have allowed Equestrian society to split apart like this if they were still around somewhere, but they're fucking immortal. Will the show even bother to try and explain where they went?
The idea that Equestria could fall apart and lose its connection to magic is an insult to FIM's happily-ever-after ending. This show's premise implies that Twilight was a colossal fuckup and ruined the kingdom so bad that everybody split up and possibly went through a civil war. I would much rather have G5 exist in its own continuity, at least then they wouldn't be able to rape FIM's lore.
Why do underwhelming reboots masquerading as continuations to profitable franchises for the sake of attracting attention to godawful professionally published fanfiction love to take the original heroes and fuck them up and shit on the premise of the original story and its ending and its heroes?
Reminds me of Fallout Equestria, which is shit. And nu Star Wars which is shit.
This is canon now, the only natural course for diversetria
The fur is so fuzzy.
>>316890>FIM's happily-ever-after ending
FiM's happily-ever-after ending ended with a public execution that was cheered for by onlookers and saw a cozy little village turn into a soulless campus town. Let's not pretend FiM ended well just because G5 will be worse.
I guess their fur is made of the stuff that tennis balls are covered in. Probably the best way to translate FIM's style into 3D. They can't have smooth skin or it'd look like those crappy SFM models from years back, but actual hair would be hard to pull off and probably look terrible when animated. A short, dense fuzz layer works best visually.
The main thing I dislike are the faces. The half-moon eyes, squat face and chubby cheeks make them look like they have down syndrome. Compare them to the 3D models created by DJthed which do a better job on the faces.
Cute little short trailer for Pipp. I'm guessing we'll see more of these "Meet X" trailers rolled out over the month as the release date approaches.
there is nothing to look forward anymore
Don't say that! Maybe someone will make a cool FIM fangame. That isn't just porn.
Many here, and on 4chan as well and possibly the entirety of the horse community views that G5 will be a continuation of G4. I ask, where is the evidence that this is so? Other than a single frame or so of the Main 6 as action figures, who is to say that these main 6 isn't just a "wink" to the audience.
I am imagining, and have little doubt, that to anyone familiar with the Digimon series, that G5 will most likely end up in the same way as the Third Season (If you even call it that) of Digimon. To the Unfamiliar, the first season of Digimon was about a bunch of kids getting sent to a digital world, it had monsters, adventure, all sorts of shenanigans. Season 2 continued this adventure but with a whole new cast that carried the torch from the first group. But when it came down to the third season, everyone was hopeful that it too would carry on, but instead took one big dump on it. How? By claiming that the the first two seasons was actually in this new world nothing more than a TV show, trying to sell a card game. But then somehow too the digital world and the monsters in it are real? What? The only thing to its credit would be a darker story but it was its own thing and really other than a reference in the beginning of the series, separated itself from any part of the previous two.
With MLP, we all speculate what could of happened, or what might of happened to make all the races separate, where the alicorns went, and why the whole world isn't in ice thanks to the windigo's but in truth, it could be simply that it is its own world and Twilight and all her friends are nothing more than a bed time story in this new world. Who knows, perhaps it is due to this bed time story that who ever the main character is, sets off on their adventure to unite the rest of the races.
But the most collar yanking moment comes from knowing very well how the creators and Hasbro have went into the far left territory, from their leaked emails to project veritas leaking all about their CRT agenda they are pushing. Between blacking up AJ in the priminary drafts for the next movie and everything else, this is going to be one heap of a mess.
Many "Praise" Zootopia, and it isn't a surprise that entire movie is a far left anti-racism film about white vs blacks. And despite what the critics say, it isn't subtle about it. I look forward to the next gen being no different.
Off the bat though, what I don't like about the new generation, other than the Gawd aweful 3d (Because FLASH is CGI you dumbass pricks)is like g2, they modernized everything and made it more like our own reality, with cell phones and metropolis with billboards and marketing everywhere, even in parody yeah, marketing everywhere. With G2 this killed off a ton of the adventure aspect of MLP very quickly and even more so the fantasy and magic aspect. It was simply a slice of life young girl issues sort of ordeal. So In a world of modern technology, how the hell are they going to even pull off an adventure/fantasy story? Something seems a bit off.
But one thing that is funny as hell, next Monday is when we all will find out. And funnier still, unlike G4 which we knew was getting worse and worse as we drifted from Season 7. There were so many leaks, even leaks of the movie, before post processing, and yet, not a single leak on G5.... I guess it's that bad.
>>319791>By claiming that the the first two seasons was actually in this new world nothing more than a TV show, trying to sell a card game.
I mean, this is Hasbro: it's made to sell horse figurines. It could quite possibly go down that route.
Remember, they assraped Twilight's character in season 3 because they wanted to sell Alicorn toys.
They could have taken Twilight in an interesting direction by making her say "I wanted to be the royal librarian not a Princess" and struggle with doing it right.
Instead they just made her bland whenever they aren't flanderizing her into a retard or stereotypical cartoon nerd.
It's not that impressive, but that one song isn't that bad.
In Korean, that is. No idea how it'll sound in English.
Is this really what the fuck they're having for g5? jesus christ on a pogo-stick.
I knew hasbro went full lefty but I thought that they'd at least have SOME writing talent left considering how much the fags seem to always love broadway musicals.
Wings or No Wings, Princess or Not, it was a mess from the start in trying to sell toys.
Well they did have that whole episode with "What does it really mean to be a princess? I feel useless." And just like all the times prior, every time the writers set up for the story to be led in one direction, some other writers fucks it all up just to then erase the previous writers set up and they try to set up themselves their own arcs. This happened in every season since the beginning.
I don't feel G5 will be any different than what G4 was in that regards. I bet by the second season, everything in the movie will be retconed and pure blatant propaganda.
>>319820>but I thought that they'd at least have SOME writing
I know it's pretty mediocre so far, but what exactly about the writing in that song are you referring to? Do you speak Korean? Care to translate?
We need to get a few Koreans on this board.
A quick jump to 4chan and someone already added in subtitles. Just turn them on.
>it's like a warhead on your forehead
Equestria confirmed to have had nukes.
"Now you might be wondering why there is a picture of a my little pony on the slide titled 'the penis'"
Izzy is decidedly the best pony in this gen.
