I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

SAmsung has you covered. Exploding phones.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

Would it? The ponies seem to walk normally on clouds. I think that pegasi can alter the composition of clouds, making them harder or softer, but I could be wrong about that.

Yeah, still not feeling any excitement. At best, this is a step to the side for Twilight. It still feels less impressive than the actual destiny that was hinted for Twilight.

The one that you created in your head?

Twilight becoming the next Star Swirl the Bearded, a wizard who's legend has lasted longer than that of even Celestia. It fits with all the hints about Twilight's magical abilities being special, while Twilight getting a royal title doesn't really connect to anything.

Twilight's magical skill and intelligence have been focused on for the entirety of the series. Twilight being a legendary wizard has been foreshadowed since The Cutie Mark Chronicles. Twilight becoming a princess seems completely unrelated to what she has done.

Being a princess might have more to do with magic than has ever been hinted in show, but we're going to have to wait for the next episode for that.

... yeah, I don't see where any of that "next Starswirl the Bearded" stuff was hinted at all. And to say being a Princess won't have anything to do with her magical abilities assumes a lot, also.

Given that managing a country has been shown to be a political task, there's no reason to assume it would revolve around magic. The episode might change that, but at the moment, there's nothing linking magic with the title.

Not specifically being Star Swirl, but Twilight's magic has been focused on a lot through the series. It's the only thing that has been given a focus as meaning something special in the future. Assuming that she will become an important wizard is the most logical conclusion.

Even in the third season, Celestia was talking about Twilight advancing in her career as a student of magic, and Luna was shown holding a book with stars and swirls on it. Simple conclusion is that Twilight is following Star Swirl's path. This season also had a couple of episodes focusing on Twilight learning and using more powerful magic.

The summary itself mentions Twilight writing her own magic.

And Twilight has been given political and social responsibilities from pretty much the start.

So... yeah.

Twilight's brother was the Captain of the Guard before becoming a prince, and Twilight has actually been given more responsibility than Cadance, who has always been a princess. Twilight's social and political responsibilities seem independent of being royalty.

She's been treated as more important than just a princess throughout the series, and this honestly kind of devalues her accomplishments, in my opinion.

How writing magic links to becoming a princess is currently unexplained. The synopsis makes it sounds like becoming a princess was Twilight's destiny, rather than granted as a reward for writing new magic, which makes slightly more sense.

I think you're niggling over details and prioritizing your own interpretations over any others.

Any search for foreshadowing involves niggling over details.

She has great magical power and skill, that leads to being a powerful wizard. Simplest thing in the world, nothing complicated enters into it.

Twilight's magical growth has been given more focus than her growth in other areas. Everything else she has done has extended from her career as a student of magic. How being a student of magic turns to being a princess, I don't know. Maybe the explanation the cartoon gives will make sense, maybe it won't. Should be entertaining to find out.
