My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!
 

There appears to be no general place to discuss it. So I'm making this thread.

Anime? No. But, as an animation, I suppose it would seem only proper to put one in place here.

I'll start: Season 2 begins in three weeks. And it's going to start off with another two parter... It's going to pretty much be the best.

So, without further ado...



--------------------------------------------------------

SO YOU WANT TO GET INTO THE MUSIC?



So you've heard about this thing called fan music, and you hear it's pretty great, but you don't know where to start looking? What's that? You say there is just way too much damn music from the fandom now that it's just not worth looking for? HAVE NO FEAR! Today I will introduce you to the best pieces of music by some of the most known musicians, as well as a few from not so well known.

But what genre is it? Well, most of it is electronic, however, there are a few exceptions; metal, rock, even hip hop and country has emerged. Instead of talking about it, perhaps it would be best to just dive right in.

Key:

T: - Twilight-centric
F: - Fluttershy-centric
RD: - Rainbow Dash-centric
AJ: - Applejack-centric
PP: - Pinkie Pie-centric
R: - Rarity-centric
CMC: - CMC-centric
P: - Celestia, Luna, Cadance
BG: - Background Pony (Derpy, Doctor Whooves, Lyra, Bonbon, etc.)

Anything else is miscellaneous or features a group.




THE SHOW


Obviously the show is where most of the music stems from, and a good handful of that from the show's music itself, created by Daniel Ingram. While I'm not going to list all of the music from the show, due to a lot of it being short bits, I will list the long and key songs here in chronological order:









THE FANS


Here's a *COUGH* simple *COUGH* introduction to the fan music. Most of the songs here are the most popular and well known, but a few of these are a few of the more lesser known ones that are still good. Most have a download link attached.

Songs with a * next to them are my personal favorites

Hopefully I piqued someone's curiosity with this, so enjoy!

Doppleganger 08-29-2011 01:43 PM

Misc is probably the place for this. It's not too genetically distinct from anime (I think magical girl), but it's still very cartoon.

It's an OK show. I found myself often bored. The voice acting is ear porn, but that's not enough indulgence to maintain my concentration. Not a big Macromedia flash animation fan either.

As far as "little kids shows" go, I much preferred the similarly fantastical Dragon Tales.

Lady Kuno 08-29-2011 02:19 PM

Hellll yeah.

I'm so excited about season two I can hardly stand it. I don't think I've ever been so excited in my whole life! Apart from the time when I first met Pinkie Pie and was like "GAAAAAASP" remember? But then really, what could top that!

AshsBabyLapras 08-30-2011 01:01 AM

*headtilt* Am I crazy, or did the old Anime forum description used to specifically mention Western animation was included here too? I dunno. ANYWAY.

I think I'm UPN's only hardcore pegasister? :x At least, the other two that come to mind aren't really big on posting... But I don't discriminate! ;)

So who wants to swap pony power rankings while we wait for season two to start? Mane six rankings, CMC rankings, overall favourite, top three... I'm interested in anything y'all want to share!

deoxys 08-30-2011 01:15 AM

Now that I'm thinking about it, this thread might have been better off as a club... ah well.

Anyway, honestly, I'm torn. I like them all, and I tend to swap around my favorites rather often, but as it stands...

1 and 2. Pinkie Pie/Fluttershy (dead tie, I'm not budging on this.)
3. CMC
3a. Scootaloo
3b. Applebloom
3c. Sweetie Belle
4. Rainbow Dash
5. Twilight Sparkle (Filly Twilight is honestly one of the best things I've ever seen :3)
6. Spike
7. Rarity
8. AJ

and I suppose I like Derpy. Sometimes.

... I'm honestly not really into the fandom, though I'm definitely well aware of it, so I don't even think about characters like Luna and Trixie.

I'm sure everyone's seen this, but anyway...

BORKED

Also, if anyone was interested, and didn't yet know, the plot of the season 2 opener has been revealed.

Spoiler: show
Discord has escaped it's stone prison and is tormenting equestria. The mane six have to find the elements of harmony again and re-seal Discord.


/excited

Muyotwo 08-30-2011 01:30 AM

Power Rankings a-go-go!

1. Pinkie Pie
2. Fluttershy
3. Applejack
4. Twilight Sparkle
5. Rainbow Dash
6. Rarity

CMC ranking
1. Applebloom
2. Sweetie Belle
3. Scootaloo

Princess Ranking
1. Princess Luna (she's hella cute)
2. Princess Celestia

AshsBabyLapras 08-30-2011 01:45 AM

Well, I issued the challenge, suppose I should face up to it myself. xd And yes, like everyone's list, this is subject to rapid change based on new episodes or even especially cute fanart. >>; EXCEPT #1 THAT IS FIXED FOREVER.

Mane six (ogod this is hard):
Spoiler: show
1. Fluttershyyyyyy - not even a question! She's my BFF. <3
2. Applejack - okay recent discussions have left me a bit biased, but come on, AJ is so sweet! She doesn't get nearly enough love and d'aww that accent.
3. Rarity - I'm actually surprised I'm placing her this high, but she and Fluttershy are good friends so I have to love her. <3 She also gets points for Opalescence and WHINING.
4. Pinkie Pie - she's hilarious, clearly, but she's also kind of terrifying. I'd be exhausted if I actually had to spend time with her.
5. Rainbow Dash - she rubs me the wrong way sometimes when she gets rude or overly competitive, but THE PEGASUS RACE. ;~;
6. Twilight Sparkle - I love her, don't get me wrong, but she is the straight man pony.


Mane six + CMCs:
Spoiler: show
1. Fluttershy <3
2. Sweetie Belle - four words: hush now, quiet now
3. Applejack
4. Apple Bloom
5. Rarity
6. Pinkie Pie
7. Rainbow Dash
8. Scootaloo
9. Twilight Sparkle


...Big Macintosh probably fits in either right before or right after AJ there. *apparently has a giant soft spot for the Sweet Apple Acres crew and never even realised*

Sneaze 08-30-2011 02:29 AM

lol wut's a 'brony'? No, but seriously, S2 is gonna be epic, even if I have to pull my hair out making sure that we can stream it live. /SHAMELESSPLUG As for rankings... just recently became:
Spoiler: show
1. Rarity 2. Rainbow 3. Apple Bloom 4. Luna 5. Pinkie 6. Sweetie 7. Twilight 8. Celestia 9. Fluttershy 10. Chicken 11. Applejack
I'd throw backgrounds in there, but the list would get crazy.

Yes, I'd imagine that's a rather worrisome task, doing something like that.

Your site is interesting. It's fairly unique, I have to admit, I like the underlying concept you have going for it. Kinda like an online theater party. Neat.

And Scoots is not a chicken :<

Also, I'm starting to like Twilight more. No idea why. Even though she's the mane character, I think it's because she's reminding me more and more of that awkward nerd who just desperately tries so hard to please everyone and make everyone stay her friend, and it depresses me

It's actually in the middle of a complete overhaul. It usually looks and functions better, I just have it like this because it makes making changes easier. Also, technically not my site, as Hipster and DCD made it originally, though myself, Sathi, and Ghosties are the ones who handle anything administrative.

empoleon dynamite 08-30-2011 12:47 PM

Mane Six
1. Pinkie I like the music in MLP more than anything which is why she scores so high. Also that episode where she goes crazy
2. Fluttershy She's so cute and I sometimes relate to her shyness, even though I'm quite outgoing I know what it's like when you struggle with certain social situations
3. Rarity The Dress making song won me over.
4. Applejack I think she's the best looking. I'unno
5. Rainbow Dash She's a bit mary sueish, but I don't hate her
6. Twilight The only pony I actually dislike. So annoying!

I can't be bothered with CMCs but I love Gummi, he's probably my favorite character in the whole show. I like Macintosh, Rarity's cat and that mischievous rabbit too.

I see. I was assuming you were talking about the streaming aspects. Well, I don't have access to the Hub, so I suppose I'll be checking your site out when the time comes.

Best. Episode. Ever.

Well, actually, I'd say my hands down favorite so far would have to be the origin stories episode. It was incredibly well done and just outstanding.

What...

Wow, she really is like me. <<;

Mane Six:
1) Applejack (Been fond of her ever since her first featured episode. Plus her accent is <3, especially when singing.)
2) Fluttershy (Moe~)
3) Twilight Sparkle (^ See above quote)
4) Rarity (I was helping my mum mend my jeans the other day, and she told me the story of how grandma tried once to open up a seamstress business. She spent a lot of time and care on her first job, but the client disliked one section of the final product, so she ended up having to redo the whole thing. She never took a job request again; didn't even make enough money to pay for the sign she had made. Definitely reminded me of "Art of the Dress", which I certainly wasn't humming.)
5) Pinkie Pie (She's fun, but scares me sometimes.)
6) Rainbow Dash (Nothing personal, just doesn't interest me as much as the others.)

No real preference of CMCs.

From what I understand, girls refer to themselves as bronies, too, but pegasister is pretty fantastic.

5) Pinkie Pie (She's fun, but scares me sometimes.)

Oh I know, that's what makes her so great. The multiple personality disorder she had when she went literally insane in Party of One was fucking awesome!

Lady Kuno 08-31-2011 03:50 PM

Girls will never understand our bronie love. It is a forbidden lust they can never comprehend.

Mozz 08-31-2011 06:37 PM

:)

AshsBabyLapras 08-31-2011 10:59 PM

For the record, I have no problem referring to myself as a brony, and I will happily group myself in with bronies (even if the rest of the group is male). But if I'm referring to myself specifically as a female, I'll use pegasister... just because specifying "female brony" sounds silly. xd

edit: AHHH~!

apparently that's a meme and this is the first I'm hearing of it.... but I don't care, this is now one of my favorite things ever

ALRIGHT, I've thought about it, the above video has done something I didn't think possible. It has broken my tie on who is more my favorite pony between Pinkie and Fluttershy... and I hands down just... FLUTTERSHY IS JUST THE BEST!!! =DD
