I tried looking up GNAA, and all I came up with was some weird association.

I wasn't sure what to expect from the episodes, but I enjoyed it. They felt a bit different than the other season openings. Darker tone, and a surprising amount of seriousness. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the season, especially have the number of spoilers they put in the commericals.

Seconding the above post.
Spoiler:
E1
- Shows in the 'Empire Intro'
- Curses Shining Armor (well, if one wants to call it a curse)
- That's about it

E2
- Almost immediately loses his horn
- The horn gets more importance than Sombre does for the rest of the episode almost
- "Mmm...crystals."
- Tries to rush in and take the C.Heart once the barrier's down, only for victory to get pulled away at the last moment
-- And then he explodes.

Nightmare Moon? Alignment change. Discord? Petrification that was undone once and likely can be undone again. Chrysalis? Mere expulsion (can't expect much from a barrier). But Sombre? To quote an old game, "That was a bang."

Though, aside from that. If I had to pay attention to any one thing more than I ought to from these two episodes, it's that book Princess Luna brought up at the end. Sort of came out of nowhere. "What does it do? What is it for?" And what are the odds that Twilight's 'next level of study' (or however Celestia mentioned it) are tied to this book? I mean, when you consider it, Luna wasn't really around for all that long to do any kind of teaching during Twilight's lifespan. And after taking some time to accustom to modern times (see the episode of Nightmare Night for proof towards needing said time), it was probably just a bit of natural progression to give Twilight a different scholar to learn things from. (That and it would prob'ly be a good excuse for more Luna involvement, maybe.) ((Annnd it was a thing that did get brought up in the post-episode chat on the stream I was tuned in to, so)) (((Am I wrong in thinking this? Doesn't seem like it could be -too- far off the mark)))


I'll need a definiton on what "GNAA" is supposed to be as well. Google's top result doesn't, seem like it's supposed to be right for some reason... (And yet I will be told it is.)

A pretty feared hacking group from the YTMND and SA days, took down 4chan once. They're flagging videos for copy right and are hacking pony sites right now apparently.

They also started a stupid petition to ban bronies from the united states, which I'm pretty sure if it even reaches it's signature goal, wouldn't do anything

The new episode(s), while it was decent... it didn't really feel like a good opening to the new season. While the lore/design for the new villain was pretty good, he was ultimately just a plot device. That was really disappointing, considering how awesome Nightmare Moon, Discord, and Chrysalis and the Changelings. I was super excited to see what they had cooked up as the evil-doer, only to see that he had almost no screenplay.

Everything else in it was perfectly fine, however.

I think people where expecting another amazing villain due to how all other two parters have had one, but really, this two parter was rather different. It put more focus on the main six interacting to meet a goal, something that we did not see much of at all in the last two two parters.

Dare I say I think this is the best two parter so far? I got quite many enjoyable moments out of all the main characters, PLUS Spike got some interaction too! Possibly a bit too much Twilight focus? (The first song kinda sucked too...)

But the episode in general had a lot of good stuff along the lines of what I want to see, however, I do agree that there are a few odd things.
Spoiler tag is sorta not working great in my layout, so take care!

Spoiler:
For example, Sombras horn was seen flying away at the end of the episode, hinting that he could possibly come back yet again. There is the thing with Luna where she does not want to send Twilight on this task but would rather have herself or Celestia go; Not to mention the book she is floating at the very end.

But it does not end there, the crystal empire in general introduces quite a few concepts and functions in the universe. It would be retarded if they did not explore these concepts more in the future. (Such as the rainbows flowing out from the crystals.)

Just watched the newest episode. Dem Pinkies. There wer so many of them that I wasn't surprised that many of the antics of the duplicate Pinkies were animation frames from previous episodes (rolling around, various dances, jump roping, etc.)

The power of Flash, everyone.

They have reused frames for a long time.

Anyhow, I liked it, more character development for pinkie was actually needed IMO. ´:3

I actually agree with many of the others about that two parters. Compared to Chrysalis/Discord, Sombra was kind of a total bust. Pretty good two-parter, though out of the four, I'd rank it the second worst just behind the Nightmare Moon episodes.

On the other hand, today's episode was hilarious and awesome. I noticed that the writer (Dave something, last name escapes me) was one I didn't recognize, so I'm wondering if he's either new or simply obscure. Looking forward to more from him though.

It was the first time that I really specifically noticed. Also someone is going to make a gif of dancing Pinkie Pie and how no fucks are being given.

I completely forgot about it airing until someone mentioned it that evening. I need to get used to the season being active again.


Reused animations aside, I was particularly impressed with the animation in this episode. There were a number of moments where I suddenly realized just how smooth and nice the movements were. This is when I wish Ponibooru was still around, since right now it would always have a fresh batch of screenshots of silly faces and such from the episode.

Not from the finalized episode, but still a great screencap nonetheless. XD

You do realize that you just contradicted yourself, if you are a male. If not then who really cares? This is a show that is intended for girls, but everything about the show's actual production is just so well done, writing especially, where it makes the show not only tolerable, but enjoyable for those outside of the primary demographic.

Then again I am a female. Pegasisters unite.
