After 11 episodes, we're now in a mid-season hiatus. No news yet on when new episodes will resume.

 

In the meantime, we now have the three Equestria Girls specials to look forward to, one per week and each of them the same length as an episode. The first one will be on tomorrow (based on what I've heard, the one I'll be most looking forward to is the third one, which will be two weeks from now).

If you know where to look on streaming sites, Australia actually aired episodes 12 and 13 this week before their hiatus break, and fans got recordings. I might go check it out myself, because I was particularly interested in those episodes.

 

I actually didn't know the EqD specials were happening, I'll have to look those up!

Yeah, it's torture, especially since we're two episodes away from an episode I REALLY want to see

Spoiler

 

Despite that, the majority of the season seven episodes have been pretty awesome. I liked the introduction of Daybreaker, though I was somewhat disappointed at their failure to include or even allude to Luna's personal guard while Celestia was handling Luna's duties; it's like they're determined to pretend that those guys never happened. I'm also curious as to how Daybreaker might make a return appearance-she's way too cool not to show up again.

Although I'll confess that I have seen them, I will also prefer to watch them when they officially air in America. You see, the problem with foreign broadcasts of shows made in America is that, due to the slightly different framerate (I don't remember the exact numbers) at which broadcasting is done in Europe (and apparently Australia too), the result is that an episode broadcasted (and recorded) there has a slightly higher audio pitch (typically very easy to notice in the intro, since that's always going to be in every single episode and thus easy to notice when something's different in such a very familiar part). So basically, if you would rather watch these episodes in ideal quality (and not listen to everyone in slightly higher voices), then you'll just have to wait for the American broadcast, with its proper speed and audio.

 

Anyway, as for the Equestria Girls specials, the first one was on last Saturday, and the second will be this Saturday, with the third and final one the week after that.

Big news, the MLP movie trailer just hit! Pretty crazy stuff.

I didn't actually know this issue until I watched the episodes, but yeah it was really noticeable. It's not due to a framerate difference so much as when other countries speed up the episode slightly to fit their network's timeslots or to fit in more ads.

I'm usually one to wait to watch things until they air, like when Steven Universe episodes release early, but in this case since episode 13 was one I was really looking forward to, I broke down and watched it.
I did luckily manage to find an upload of Episode 13 (The Perfect Pear) that was captured at the correct speed and pitch, and I'm glad because this was probably my favorite episode all season. Feels ramped up to 11.

This trailer was amazing-I love the fact that they're going to include a bunch of background/supporting characters in it in true MLP fashion. Also liking the look of the redesigned Canterlot castle; it's about time Luna got a throne of her own. I must say the Storm King is...surprising; I wasn't expecting him to be quite so cheery. Then again, I suppose the series has already done intense male villains in the forms of Sombra and Tirek, even if Sombra has been-at least so far as the comics are concerned-redeemed.

 

I am super stoked for the Perfect Pair.

Yes, new episodes will be resuming next Saturday, with episodes 12 and 13 both on the same day, one right after the other. After that, it'll be back to the standard schedule of one every Saturday.

So the Perfect Pear was one of the most amazing episodes of the series in my opinion. Not as hot on the other new episodes, though it was nice to see Ember again.

You may have already heard about it by now, but the My Little Pony Movie is now out in theaters.

 

Personally, I won't be going out to see it (I'm far more reluctant to let others know of my interest in this series than I am of my love of Lego and thus why I had no problem going to see the Ninjago movie), but I do hope to eventually see it in some other more privately accessible way, though it probably won't be for months.

Well, I can say it's a pretty awesome film-I took my niece and nephew to see it. It's not the perfect movie, but enjoyable nonetheless.

 

And now we're a week away from the finale of season 7.

Yep-gotta wait until next year for more animation goodness, including Chrysalis and-apparently-a return by Tirek.

For those of you willing to watch Equestria Girls, the hiatus is already over. The first episode of the new series is now available on Hasbro's YouTube channel. (This will be the only time I'll post the video link, as I'm sure that when new episodes come out each week, it'll be rather easy to find them from the first one.)

Oh, and I just realized that I forgot to mention the progress I've made on my fanfiction series, LEGO Equestria Girls. I finished the fourth story a few months ago, and once again I plan on writing another one next year. As usual, I'll post links to all the main stories in my series so far.

The key word there is "willing".

 

So with the revelation that Tirek will apparently be returning in the upcoming season, it seems to me that a pattern has been established, consciously or unconsciously, with regards to the introductions of major villains in the franchise. By major I'm talking villains who were so bad that they debuted in a two-part episode and/or were defeated in a two part episode-not one time troublemakers like Lightning Dust or briefly escalating nuisances like Trixie. The pattern seems to be this: major villains introduced in odd-numbered seasons seem to end up being redeemed or eliminated (either way they're done being a villain) while major villains introduced in even-numbered seasons survive to make a pest of themselves down the road-in ANOTHER even numbered season:

  • Season 1: Nightmare Moon is introduced but cleansed by the Elements of Harmony in the series premier, and thereafter confined to flashbacks, nightmares, illusions, alternate timelines, and the occasional comic appearance that ends with her quickly reverting back to Luna form.
  • Season 2: Discord is introduced but defeated, and starts on the path to redemption in season 3. Queen Chrysalis and the Changelings are also introduced but expelled by Shining Armor and Princess Cadance's combined magic.
  • Season 3: King Sombra is introduced but is quickly defeated; if you confine yourself to the animated series he is for all intents and purposes dead at this point, whereas the comics featured his return followed quickly by his redemption.
  • Season 4: Tirek is introduced but eventually defeated and returned to Tartarus. Discord also makes a return to his antagonist role in season 4, both with his instigation of/apathy towards the whole Plunderseeds situation and his later alliance with Tirek. However, he does break the pattern somewhat-what else do you expect from the Spirit of Chaos?-by actually becoming a redeemed character, albeit a mischievous one.
  • Season 5: Starlight Glimmer is introduced, and actually becomes the first villain to appear in two different two-parters, but these serve to bookend the same season and result in Starlight being redeemed. The other major villains from previous seasons also make brief appearances, but these are confined to brief appearances in presumably nullified alternate timelines.
  • Season 6: Chrysalis and the Changelings make their return after an absence of FOUR SEASONS (not counting The Cutie Re-Mark - Part 2), but their return culminates in the majority of the Changelings choosing to share love and Chrysalis being deposed as their leader.
  • Season 7: The Pony of Shadows is introduced as a full-fledged villain rather than a Headless Horse/Olden Pony type fable, but proves to be a Unicorn possessed by darkness. That darkness is separated from him by the Elements of Harmony and trapped in limbo, leaving the Unicorn himself as a redeemed character.
  • Season 8: Chrysalis will be returning after a much shorter absence, but also minus her previous entourage, and Tirek will be returning after being absent for FOUR SEASON-funny how that seemed to be his and Chrysalis' magic number.

In addition to the new Equestria Girls shorts that have been coming out on YouTube once every week, there will also be a one-hour special episode of Equestria Girls that'll premier on February 17, so just one month from now. Based on the preview I've seen, it looks like it'll be a very interesting one.

The Equestria Girls one-hour special, "Forgotten Friendship", was on yesterday. I was able to watch it and I have to say, it was definitely one of the most thrilling installments in the series I've seen.

 

In addition to the Equestria Girls shorts on YouTube that are still ongoing, we also now have confirmation that Season 8 of the main show will begin on March 24, so just over one month left to go before we see new episodes.

If there's anyone still around on this forum who watches this show, I'd like to point out a couple things. First of all, there was a second one-hour Equestria Girls special called "Rollercoaster of Friendship" that was on a couple weeks ago. And second, the second half of Season 8 will begin on August 4, less than two weeks from now, with two new episodes on the same day.
