I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 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.

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)

@  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)

I'm still disappointed we didn't get to see the invitation letter. While there's valid arguments why Spike wouldn't need to come, there's still the matter of him getting passed over. I can see Cadance making a point of trying to make it up to him but there was never a scene where she called herself out on needing to do so.

I don't know about an in-story justification, but plot-wise, Cadance was taking Spike's position of trying to get Twilight to calm down. The difference being that Twilight actually listened to Cadance.

That was a pretty basic breathing technique. I wonder why Twilight hadn't picked one up, or at least used one, before. Maybe she only tries to calm down when her old babysitter makes her? Still, that really made Twilight look like she was being treated as child. It makes sense given their relationship, but it also highlighted Twilight's immaturity to me.

I don't know about you but I liked seeing this side of their relationship. Cadance is fun and all, but she's still an authority figure. She is in a position to treat Twilight like a child.

Am I the only one who wants the Equestria Games to be the one event where everything goes perfectly? Seriously. The crystal ponies endured an unspecified amount of time under the rule of a brutal tyrant, and when he finally got overthrown they couldn't even enjoy it because they all ended up banished for 1000 years. Getting to host the Equestria Games is their consolation prize, and they almost lost out on that thanks to the stupidity of some outsiders.

Making a big event like that go according to plan involves busting your hump and dealing with a thousand unforeseen events. Just showing the dirty work involved it making it go off would have plenty of entertainment value.

Works for me. I love seeing the work that takes place behind the scenes of big events. What happens backstage is just as interesting as what happens onstage to me.

The inspector basing her choice on the false one's experience doesn't really add up because it wasn't like the Mane 6 would welcome anypony in the same way to the Crystal place. They only treated her well because they thought she was someone else.

I think the idea is that the false inspector didn't do anything that the inspector is supposed to do. She went way off script, forcing the manes to go way off script as well, and they managed to improvise.

It was a clumsy resolution to be sure.

I think that it would have worked better if they had shown random crystal ponies treating Mistress Harshwhinny well, instead of having her being ignored.

That would have been a much better story. It would hae even been heartwarming to see the crystal ponies earn this victory for themselves.

Oh, I liked it, but it was interesting to me that Cadance has gotten Twilight to calm down when no one else has. Spike gets ignored, her friends tend to expect her to calm herself down, and Princess Celestia tends to make Twilight even more anxious. Most attempts to make Twilight calm down make things worse, actually.

Cadance is the only pony that has made Twilight relax. I think that's important that Cadance can get Twilight to calm down with just with her presence. I think that Cadance's ability to comfort others is why she was sent to the Empire in the first place, to help the crystal ponies recover from the trauma of King Sombra's rule.

It may also be a case of Twilight seeing Cadance as more of an older sister. She probably sees Spike as more o fa younger brother, and Celestia as an idea of perfection to work towards. As for her friends not being able to help much, well, she's known Cadance a lot longer than she's known the other five.

Watched it. Dash's story seemed weird, really. I didn't feel the emotion or reasons as to why she feels so strongly about the Games in general (not just the Crystal Empire winning the chance to host).


Dash is quite blatantly "The Jock" within the protagonists. Her home town lost a chance to host one of the most prestigious sporting events in the world. Helping the Crystal Empire is basically living her dreams through others.

Which is almost as good as living them yourself.

Almost.

Thoughts on second viewing:

In the first scene we see Berry Punch boarding the train. We saw her on the return trip last episode. Continuity! Wait a minute, we saw her on Spike's first trip too. Did she just nap on the train all day?

Pinkie Pie does get snacky after long train rides. She ran ahead of the others and got herself a cinnamon bun. An added bonus (because I care about these things) is that we get to see another of the Crystal Empire train station's amenities. We saw a gift shop last episode. This time we see a bakery. This place is thriving.

Those crystal fillies are adorable. And they're blank flanks. Time for the Crusaders to form a new chapter.

Some outsider (not a crystal pony) is getting her hair washed in the first spa scene. The Crystal Empire has running water.

Cadance explains mud baths to Rarity. She has no idea who she's talking to.

I love that shot of Pinkie diving into the gak.

When we first see that long list of instructions, the crystal ponies in the shot stop looking crystally.

The Crystal Empire is huge. I don't think those aerial shots are drawn to scale.

Seriously? Fear of high ceilings is a thing?

"Come on, how bad could it be?" "Imagine her hair turned into a porcupine." And Twilight stopped arguing. icon-fire.gif

Twilight walks in to see how things are going and finds Pinkie Pie being insane. Classic comical timing.

Shining Armor's clearly putting his Royal Guard experience to use. He knows how to give orders.

They head back to the train station, and Pinkie Pie gets another cinnamon bun. And no one was working the counter that time. Naughty naughty naughty.

Okay, watching this scene again, Pinkie Pie was definitely being genre savvy there. The look on her face makes it clear that she knows she's just feigning obliviousness.

And we get the clumsy climax. And Pinkie Pie has another cinnamon bun. She's outta control.

Watch the faces during Harshwhinny's turnaround speech. Pinkie Pie knows the logic doesn't quite add up.

The same way Olympic cities do it: Massive construction projects, and not having the actual events anywhere near town. We saw in "Wonderbolts Academy" that it's possible to have a floating, solid platform, which would be an ideal place for the presumptive stadium. Events requiring more space can be held on the ground below.

When was there a solid floating platform? The cloud cushion that Rainbow made didn't seem to be the kind of thing that one could walk around on or make easily, and the Academy itself was on a mountain.

Was that a mountain? I thought we saw under it at one point. Very well then, build a new mountain! Simple enough.

Well, they were supposed to have several hours to prepare, and Cadance was supposed to be with them. Still doesn't explain why none of the crystal ponies could help. You'd think that one of the denizens of the host city would be helping greet the inspector. Given that Cadance and Shining Armor have only been there for a month or two, even they probably don't know the city all that well.

I think this where the suggestion of showing the Crystal Ponies being polite to the inspector would have been good. She would have seen the citizens actively at work yet still helping out a stranger in a non biased fashion.
