Why Do They Have to Hate Me? by AnScathMarcach Why Do They Have to Hate Me? by AnScathMarcach
I can't be the only one who feels personally offended when someone says they hate something I happen to love, can I?

Lately it's been G3 My Little Pony. I got into My Little Pony DURING G3, so obviously I loved it, and I still do. I can't stand how the new male fanbase doesn't understand that the past generations were made for little girls, so OF COURSE they're going to be girly! Not only that, but they practically worship G4 SO much, that they treat everything else like a toddler does to vegetables, and effectively convince the rest of the world that anything that's not G4 is garbage. They won't even watch it with an open mind (See EVERY Brony review of ANY G3 episode EVER).

Now let's talk about Rainbow Dash. During G3, Rainbow Dash was one of my favorite characters. Why? Because (despite what everyone claims about G3's characters) she was unique. She stood out. She had a unique design, an accent, and even a personality. I kind of saw her as motherly. This was a character who obviously had some effort put into her. This was a character that someone put time into. Yet everyone thinks she's disgusting because she's "Not my Rainbow Dash!".  That's another thing that bothers me. Any character that doesn't fit the bronies' claim that all the G3 characters are the same, they are brushed off as annoying.

Besides not wanting to be associated with Cloppers, this is why I stopped calling myself a Brony. If being a brony means I have to be a bigoted asshole and automatically hate the past generations because "G4 IS TEH ONLY!!1!", I want no part of it.

*Rant Over*

I think bronies just stupid, if they hate old generations. I love g3 much more than g4, because g3 ponies were more kind and were more friendly, they were the bestest friends for each other. I think we people need to learn magic of real friensdship from g3 ponies :)

Me too (I don't even wanna be called one because of stuff like this); I say if it weren't for previous generations FiM wouldn't have existed today, so they should respect it; they don't have to like it.

"They won't even watch it with an open mind (See EVERY Brony review of ANY G3 episode EVER)."

Objection.
I have done multiple reviews on the G3 eps and i didn't say anything extremely negative about them.
In fact,i even recommend people to watch them. Check my gallery for the reviews.

I did a ton of reviews for Generation 3 as well... I didn't review the Core 7 episodes or the G3.5 webisodes, but a majority of G3 MLP is present...

I did examine the series as it's own and analyzed each episode, something I wish brony analysts would do in G4, and while I did find some to be extremley weak, some were pretty fantastic.

Minty Christmas was great, and I found Runaway Rainbow to be the most complex and developed of the series (even though it did suffer a few of the same problems G3 MLP had). Dancing in the Clouds and two for the Sky were my lower rated episodes... for not having enough material to hold themselves.

Yeah, what's up with the Bronies and G3? Yes, G3 is a saccharine show and what's with this "no conflict" thing? I watched nearly all of G3, save for a few core 7 episodes, and almost all of them (Dancing in the Clouds is an exception) had a conflict. Yes, the conflicts were... very simple, but there was one! Dancing in the Clouds IS a stupid episode because it's just padding, with no conflict.

Okay, on to Rainbow Dash. Yes, she is different, but her character is not bad. She has good parts, like her maturity and more intelligent personality, flaws, like her obsession over her looks, and strangeness, like her obsession over rainbows. She, Pinkie, Minty, Kimono, and Rarity are well defined characters, until the advent of Core 7. Oh yeah, and Bronies, Rainbow didn't get her fashionista personalities until very late into G3.

Is G3 the best, no (that would be either G1 or G4), but is it the worst, (no, that's G3.5). Please, thoroughly analyze G3 before you go hating on it.

Actually, regarding conflict, have you seen A Very Minty Christmas? That one actually had a pretty deep conflict and a great story. That's why it's my favorite. I think most bronies get "No conflict" confused with "No villains" or "No fighting".

Well you shouldn't take those people seriously.  I know bronies (who haven't even watched anything pre-g4) say all pre-g4 My Little Pony cartoons had no conflict at all and they were just ponies having tea parties.  I even seen bronies that would claim that "G1" was all fluff and happiness all the time lmao!
Fact is a lot of "g4-only bronies" don't know anything about pre-g4 and don't care to do any research but will make claims about pre-g4 anyway!

Yeah, I've seen that episode, and I actually like it a lot more than a majority of FIM. That episode made Minty one of my top 3 favorite ponies of every Generation (2nd to Surprise). That episode, and Runaway Rainbow, were my favorites because of their characters and story. You really don't need fighting or villains to have a great story. G3 is one of those few shows that can have a great story with no antagonist, as far as I'm concerned.

A problem with G3, however, is that the stories are stretched too thin. Some of the hour movies can fall under 22-minutes, and some of the 22-minute episodes can fall under seven-eleven minutes. Some editing can fix the pacing.

As for why it's better than most of G4; Season 1 had nearly NO Progress going on. It began with a bang with a great villain and a magical girls theme that looked like it could rival the top cartoons, but it was followed with 24 episodes of no story progression and NOTHING from that pilot. Yes, there was character progression, but that's it. Season 2 was really where it was picking up, but it was still dreadfully slow. Seasons 3 and 4 was really where the show was on it's tracks and moving at it's proper pacing.

I think (at least in the beginning) that FiM was trying to set up a show where no matter where you started, with the exception of the pilots and finales, you didn't have to worry about missing any continuity, and that's why there was no progression. It is a good idea, but it does bother me as well that after the premiers, all the characters acted like it never even happened.

Tuxedo-Guy2 Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Okay, what I actually meant was that Seasons 1 and 2 were extremely hollow compared to the subsequent seasons and other shows. I hate the Slice-of-life genre for being extremely boring, in my eyes, but it can work if you have another element going on, like a magical girl theme. This show should not be only slice-of-life, and season 4 probably noted this. Have Slice of Life with the magical girl and a monster-of-the-week theme; you can get character development done and have more entertainment than just ripping off Looney Tunes Comedy.

Really, most of Season 1 felt like it was comprised of Looney tunes comedy, internet memes, and character development with otherwise boring stories. I know other Bronies like it, but not me; I almost turned of FIM for this reason. Season 1 was probably hollowed because of Hasbro and the E/I thing, as a whole Luna seasonal arc was cut out and the Sea Ponies were left out... for some reason.

And yes, DHX NEEDS to kick it up many notches with their story telling; they need to stop playing it safe and start getting ambitious and risky. These ponies just faced a crisis and found a possible solving thing; THIS IS IMPORTANT, not just something like a toy these ponies just found in a store. Whatever is introduced needs to be relevant and active in the story arc; otherwise, don't even bother mentioning it. And there needs to be better villains and more conflicts that aren't related to villains; the best villain, Tirek, was just a prissy remake of his G1 self, who was ACTUALLY threatening.

G4 is far from the god-send that these Bronies are calling it, and DHX needs to do a lot better with their stories and entertainment value. I sure hope this alleged delay of Season 5 is worth it. Come on DHX, increase the scale of the story to more than just 12 episodes of importance and 12 episodes of filler, increase the scale of your world, increase the scale and amount of conflicts, increase everything!

Just wondering, what do you mean by "playing it safe?" Season 5 did delve into themes like death/five stages of grief and they do have Starlight with her massive evil scheme.

(Also, I do wanna say I think G4 is better than G3 but G3 is good too, I respect your opinion).

G4 has oceans of creative materials to work with; a massive world with magic, filled with mythology, characters with dreams; there's a ton of things to make, and a full 26-episode arc should not be a problem... but it's just that nothing is done with anything; we just stay in Ponyville, with most of the season not related to the arc at hand... and even then, it should still be exciting and fun, but... we still don't go anywhere or do much... whenever we bring something up at the start of the season, we don't even mention it much in the season... and that also drives me crazy. I also don't like how a ton of characters are shown once, and never brought up again... er... it's just o much creative potential is present, and this should be an easy number 1 spot... but no... I just see so many memes... so many, and I HATE memes so much, "cool" looked more like a derogatory term to me for a while.

Yes, Season 5 did better, and that should have been the style for the whole series... and I don't remember saying G3 was better than G4 (even though G3 is good; I would G1 would be better), but If I did... I must have been crazy.

OK. I understand what you mean and respect your opinion...I think the show is still doing good, and it's done a great job developing its characters unlike say, another certain magical girl anime that only had 26 episodes. (Sailor Moon Crystal, *cough cough*)

One other thing I'd say is why are the beginning and endings of the seasons two parters and not other parts of the show?

I will also say sometimes when I see fans review episodes and have different opinions (ones that introduce characters and such) it makes me question whether the show is actually good or not (but it doesn't bother me).

Then again (not trying to sound rude) there is the option of not watching it anymore.

Don't give too much thought to those Bronies, they just on the 'its cool to hate anything before g4' bandwagon.  All of My Little Pony is girly including G4 and there is nothing wrong with that; people need to get rid of the whole girly=bad idea.

The silly thing about some bronies having a problem with "girly" things or viewing it as bad, is that it goes against what the creator of FIM was trying to say, which was you can make something completely girly, and it doesn't have to be viewed as a bad thing (which is what the previous generations also managed to do as well).

It's a shame they don't all get that, the worst part is that some bronies completely miss the point whenever something "cool" happened (including when Lauren was in control of the show) the point of it from a writer's perspective was "see this, girl's shows can be cool." but I have seen bronies take this to be proof that FIM isn't really a girl's show because of this (completely ignoring the fact the some girls actually like action and villains and whatever) - it's actually embarrassing, but thankfully we're not all like that.

(sorry, that ended up being quite long).

Yeah, I watched a lot of girly things and I found them nice; even things as girly as G3... that sounded wrong. I only care about story and characters, and so far, most had good stories and characters that can support it. Said shows include 1980's Strawberry Shortcake and Pretty Cure, though I plan to expand horizons a bit more.

I ended up reviewing it and posting them on my DA account; I plan to do G3 and G4 MLP later.

Rainbow Dash was my favorite G3 pony.  I never understood why people seem to like hating on the older generations so much, like you said, they weren't designed to be interesting for college aged males, they're for little girls, so even if they don't like them it's dumb to be hating on them.
