Officially a Brony

Not that it should shock anyone but I really do enjoy the My Little Ponies Friendship is Magic cartoon.

The stories are fun. I love the characters. The Art is interesting and overall I'm really enjoying it.

Keep in mind when I was a little boy I had my little pony toys and I wanted the other iterations. But I think this one is the superior invention. the others had large almost forgettable casts and the first one just had some serious story telling problems (though wow it had dark occult stuff like soul stealing and demon lords).

This one the world is really well thought out and interesting. ts funny seeing the ponies reacting to wild nature and weirded out that they aren't helping. Its fun seeing the Pegasuses' weather factory. Really the entire thing is just fun!

The cast of six ponies (plus spike who gets a much more interesting origin story and voice actor) is much easier to follow and more interesting. I like the issues of real life (like taking on too many projects or stage fright) and in general its a good show. The self referential humor and fun songs and staging help as well. Also all these women can take care of themselves. there are guys around and they aren't tokens but they aren't necessary for any of the pony girls functionality.

I also like that the six characters are fleshed out interesting people. Each one with flaws and strengths instead of just archetypes crashing into each other (a serious problem in kids cartoons at times). My favorite is Applejack. She's not only cool and responsible she's fun to listen to and I think has the most compelling and interesting personal story. She's trying to run her family's farm and be a good business woman while trying to enjoy life and have time with friends. She worries about good manners because of her concerns of being a bumpkin. Its just interesting. Least favorite is Pinkie Pie (aka deus ex machina or Kooky Spice) more because she's i think difficult to write and latch onto. She's great for random events and humor though so I still like her.

So yeah I'm a Brony... now i need a MLP art of myself as Cogzie and my cutie mark would be fresh baked bread.
