    ...but what is going on with my little pony? Has it really come back as much as it seems? I see the cartoon pictures (newer ones) all over the internet. People have it as avatars and signatures on almost every forum I read.

    Is it like an internet joke? Are people really into it? am I too damn old by asking this kind of question?

    I'm honestly amazed, but also I guess it never went away right?

    I never really found the answer myself, I'm ok with bronies in general, but upon actually watching the show I got bored to tears.

    I ask that question sometimes too. I mean most of the members here are guys and My Little Pony is a female thing.

    Fun show, fanbase picked up steam, and became a pop culture phenomenon, complete with all the rage and melodrama that everything on the internet demands.

    Most of the members here are young to middle aged adults, and Transformers is a children's thing.

    The new My Little Pony struck me as little more than cute when I was first exposed to it. However, the recent surge in 'Bronies', who worship the show like it's the second coming of Christ, and the stupid Internet memes surrounding the program, have since made me hate it with the passion of a thousand burning suns. Only the cute female MLP cosplayers are affording it any sort of saving grace.

    You know, theres this really handy thing called "Search" on each and every forum. You can use that to find threads explaining the love for this series, instead of making yet another thread. What is it, the third this month?

    It's fun, light-hearted, the jokes work on many levels, the visual style is gorgeous and the writing and voice talent don't phone it in and give the show some serious effort. This is all reflected in the quality product it has produced.

    He'll find it, he's got a sixth sense for these threads.

    I don't mean to seem like a dick or anything, but we've had this thread before. Many times. The show is cute and fun, I use avatars and pictures of it because I tend to do that if I'm into a show. Some people do it as a joke, other people are actually fans. What's the appeal of it? I suggest go watching an episode and finding out, if you like it, you'll see why. If you don't, that's okay too.

    Too late. Fuck MLP and bronies and their associated stain on the internet. That is all.
