I am not even gonna hide it. I have watched it all.
I am not into this kind of stuff usually, nor anime for that matter. Heck i seldom even bother with any seris now a days. But it is somethign with these ponies that drew me in. At first I saw some trailer remakes with ponies, then the memes, then I started wondering what was up with these ponies. To youtube I went. Then some hours later I had seen all current episodes at that time.
I dunno, there is something about the theme of friendship I can realte to I think. I discoverd a few years ago that what made me happy, like real happy, was my friends. Not gadgets, not money, not a fansy title or job, but spending time with friends. I guess this show plays on these strings a lot. Plus the quality work is a huge plus. Well developed characters for once, despite being sugar sweet, is welcome in any series.
Am I outside target audience? Yes, as far as can get I think... And I can watch a 3 hour documentary about the monatary system after watching one pony episode
So now I watch game of thrones, and my little pony
I don't go all crazy about it tho, I watch the new episode when it comes and that is that, except a few fun vids I find on reddit now and then.
