Super Recaps: My Little Pony season 5 (Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?)

WHAT!?  We’re not gonna have ponies to talk about for a couple of months!?  HERESY!!  First Sailor Moon Crystal is ending its first season and now this!?  What will become of me without magical girls and magical ponies to talk about!?!?  NO!  I CANNOT LET THIS GET ME DOWN!!  I HAVE A JOB TO DO HERE AND I’M GONNA GIVE IT MY ALL!!!  So how do they decide to end this half of the season?  Why with a Luna episode of course!  Everyone’s favorite princess gets the spot light this week as we find out more about what’s going on inside her head and the trouble it causes for everyone else!  Will we get another classic episode like Luna Eclipsed, Bloom & Gloom, For Whom the Sweetie Belle Tolls, and several others, or will we get another bad one like… huh.  Actually, I don’t think she’s HAD a bad episode.  There were episodes where she was underutilized for sure, but never one that was bad.  Well THAT’S certainly a good sign, but can they keep up the trend in this episode!?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins with the Mane 6 barreling down the halls of the Castle of the Two Sisters, clearly looking for something with the utmost of haste.  Their goal seems to be Princess Luna who’s standing in the main hall of the castle and seems to be expecting their arrival.  While waiting, a small cloud of star energy or whatnot appears behind her, and Luna address it as Tantibus and lets it know she’s ready for whatever happens next.

“My body is ready.”

Super Recaps: My Little Pony season 5 (Slice of Life) The 100th Episode!!

We’re back from the show’s three week hiatus with the ONE HUNDREDTH episode of the series!  Did anyone think it would get this far?  Well yes actually.  I mean we’ve got two spin-off films and a theatrical movie coming out soon.  This gravy train is gonna keep going until the wheels fall off, and even then they’ll find a way to milk it even further.  Still, it seems like the creators are taking this episode VERY seriously and want to make something that is truly memorable for the fans who have kept this series going for so long.  Is it a well done celebration of the show’s past and a hopeful look at the future, or is it a bad sign of things to come as the show slowly begins to lose relevance and creativity?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins with Matilda (Hey!  We haven’t seen her for a while!) looking over her scrapbook which has gotten quite a few entries since the last time we saw it.

Equestria Uncovered: Lyra and Bon Bon Revisted! Piano Playing is Magic!

AUTHOR’S NOTE:  I’m a straight white dude, so anything I say here should probably be taken with a grain of salt.  If anything in this piece is incorrect or offensive, then I sincerely apologize and will take steps to correct it.  There are so many great resources to look at (several I’ll list at the end of this) which should be taken into consideration along with what I’m saying here. Rainbow Rocks has just come out in theaters and is generally receiving positive reviews.  However, I’m not here to talk about the quality of the film (look forward to that!), but instead to talk about one moment in it.

Who wants to guess what they’re playing?  Ebony and Ivory?  Your Song?  Wind Beneath My Wings?
