    Princess Cadance is now my favorite new character. She's sweet and humble enough to be Twilight's foalsitter, but when the situation demanded it, she could rise up to the occasion and fight for what she believes in. I hope she gets an episode of her own in the future. She deserves one.

    Oh wow. At first you think Snips and Snails and Trixie the Grey Violet look kind of badass.

    He's got a gallery of several other detailed artworks. When you can draw like that, items to put in your portfolio can be useful.

    Ok, saw the "Wedding" episode
    It was badass.
    One tiny tiny criticism is that Shining Armor was never introduced before and the opening exposition of his character was a little ham-handed. The rest of the episode took care of that.


    You know what's interesting... When the ponies were battling the buffalo, it was pies...

    This double post is worth it...
    I was ready 2ch and they think Candice has a Japanese name :)
    Her name is "Mi Amore Candenza"
    But they think it's "Miyamori Cadenza" (宮森・カデンザ)
    I actually thought that's what they said too...

  • Good IdeaGood Idea Registered User
    Huh. Wikipedia has this to say on Cadence:
    In Western musical theory, a cadence (Latin cadentia, "a falling") is, "a melodic or harmonic configuration that creates a sense of repose or resolution [finality or pause]."

    Finality. End of season. Coincidence? There's also something called a

    Ah yes, the obvious horse pun. Which I totally missed. Also, apparently it's the name of an executive's daughter.

    edit: Turn out there is, in fact, more to it. Daniel Ingram is a very clever composer, and of course he knows all about cadences and such.

    Man the people working on this show are really good at what they do. People didn't seem to like the song in the first episode, but I thought it was pretty good the first time through. The bit Goatmon put into the spoiler just makes me like it even more.

    I think making her like Luna/Celestia was a mistake. At least, Faust seems to think so.

    I really hope we get a world building episode about the alicorns sometime. Are they all immortal and physical gods or what? Are there more than Celestia/Luna/Cadence? Where do they come from?

  • PikaPuffPikaPuff Registered User regular
    my fanon observation is: all the changlings had horns and wings. meaning they might have been allicorns at one point in time.

    Recently on your Twitter you revealed that you were going to make a return showing to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic after your initial appearance as Discord, can we have any further clarification on this, especially, are you returning as Discord yet again, or is it another character this time?
    I am. I shot a new episode of it, or voiced an episode of it, I don't know now, maybe three, two months ago. I'm not sure what their lag time is, I have no idea where they're going to use it, or when they're going to use it. It's clearly, to me, a phenomenon, because as I said in another, when I was at a Doctor Who convention, the first question, we're all up there, er, not Doctor Who but Torchwood. Oh, and Doctor Who. We're all up there and the first question is My Little Pony. Well, today it's the second question. So, it's strange to me that doing the voice of one episode, or two episodes, whatever it was, on a cartoon could garner so much interest. So, that said, I did a rather big storyline part a couple of months ago, I think. I have no idea what their lag time is between that and you seeing it, but there's more to come.

    Premiere of Season 3? Finale of Season 3? Wouldn't expect it to be a mid-season single episode.

    It really is a case of him being in this internet phenomenon, combined with him playing a character that is essentially Q again. Kind of a perfect storm.

    Man he looks old with the beard.

    That kinda assumes Princess is actually the Equestrian word for Goddess.

    I'm not sure I'd want to go that far.

    Well, the one conundrum that was posed by this season has been resolved:

    Can each episode be better than the last? Yes they can.

    If Season 3 ends up being adventure-focused as is being speculated (with a season-long villain and such), then Season 2 has done a fantastic job of setting up for that, just in terms of how much character development and groundwork has been put into place.

    Indeed. I'm somewhat tired of the slice of life episodes and the season finale was refreshing, in that it focused on characters doing stuff instead of being engaged in long dialogues and meaningless animation sequences that try to flesh out their characters. The Mane 6 is already fleshed out enough. I can't see how the writers can push the envelope any further.

    Twilight's brother flashback. Celestia tries, and fails against the Changelings. Rarity + Sweetie Belle episode, Applebloom was there, but no Scootaloo, so maybe? I seem to recall a Twilight-less episode. Big Mac and Cheerilee. Zap-apples episode, see Granny Smith's family. Free space. Assertive Fluttershy. Trollestia always. Secret of my excess. Rarity's parents. Derpy spoke. Rainbowdash likes to read now. Pinkiepie obviously broke the 4th wall. Dragon migration. Changelings sorta?

    Pretty sure the top left refers to a whole episode dedicated to flashbacks like the cutie mark chronicle one. They're changlings, not ponies. Im sure the panel is referring to seaponies or something with the word pony in it.

    I would love a higher action to slice-of-life ratio. I'd still want silly day to day problem episodes though and I think there are a surprising number of places the team could go with the characters.

    Hmmm, it could turn into a walking the knife's edge kind of scenario...
