Wooo! It’s back! Season 4 is here!
As you can guess from me having a blog about Japanese animation, I’m a huge fan of the art form. And I’m not some snobby otaku who only cares for material for Japan either. My love of animation started with American 80s cartoons of the best and worst quality. But for a very long time, I’d all but abandoned American cartoons and animation, with a few exceptions. Which is why I’m glad I’ve been able to come back in the past few and really enjoy some outstanding stuff. Whether it be the legacy of DC and Marvel’s animated movies (Flashpoint is outstanding) or TV series (Young Justice needs to be given a second chance); to me even enjoying stuff that my kids found first (Adventure Time and Regular Show); I’ve enjoyed this newer, higher quality, more imaginative Western animation. But for, the pinnacle has always been My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. That’s right! I’m a damned brony! I don’t wear the T-shirts. I don’t buy the toys. And I don’t look a pony pr0n. But I love the show dearly. Curse my existence now, and get it out of your system.
For now, all I want to say is that season 4 has finally begun. And I don’t know if this will be the last season or not, but I’m pretty hyped for it! And I know this is probably asking a big favor of anyone reading this, because I doubt most of you watch the show, let a lone care for it, but give it a chance. Just give it one episode. I know its a strange request, like asking someone to watch one of the Precure series, Naruto or Dragonball Z. It comes with all sorts of stereotypes and negative heresay, but I’m one for a quality animated show. And at its basest level, this is a quality show. Now that I got that out of the way, I can go back to my regularly scheduled anime coverage.
Note: the video above is from Digibrony. I’m particularly a fan of of analytic style of review, especially for this series. And if you become a fan of the show, or just want to know what makes the show so great, I suggest you check out his Youtube channel. He can explain it as well as anybody.
