Friendship is Magic - Friends Forever Comics - Issues 1# to 12#

Hey! Remember when this blog used to update every week and had fully written reviews? Neither do I!

I swear, if I had the power to stop time, or at least slow it down to half speed like in Majora's Mask, I'd be doing fully written reviews of all these comics. But as it is right now, I'm too overwhelmed with work to sit down and review the comics in depth, besides Blogger's system of editing fucking sucks. Say what you want about Tumblr's coding, but at least that's streamlined and simple enough that I don't need to refresh constantly if I want to embed a picture or make a sentence into a link.

Anyways, check the video reviews under the break, featuring Norman Sanzo, Silver Quill and myself! I hope you guys find them enjoyable and insightful.

Friendship is Magic - IDW Comics - 2014 Annual: Power Ponies.

This one will be a little bit different from what I'm used to do with the videos. Instead of a page break, since there is only this one issue, I am putting it all here without a page break, no break no fuss. I hope you guys enjoy our review!

For those who miss the Golden Age of superheroes.

Best Part: The Earth-shattering strength of the inks.

Worst Part: That some pointless internet drama might have put a damper in its enjoyment.

Friendship is Magic - IDW Comics - Issues 1# to 26#

Have yet another batch of comic reviews all nicely tucked in a single post for your convenience. This way you don't need to hunt down individual videos or reviews, here you can watch ell the reviews of the main series from Issue 1# to Issue 26#.

You might be wondering why I'm not being snappy, or witty, and just plain informative. This is because I'm writing this at 3:45 am, after getting only two hours of sleep and with a shore shoulder due to excess of drawing goddamn cartoon horses. All for an article that probably just two or three people will read. Fucking hell, sometimes I wonder if even this little effort is worth it.

Have your comic reviews after the break!

Friendship is Magic - IDW Comics - Micro Series Reviews

The hiatus does weird things to people.

Some start drawing Rule 34. Others write fanfics of pairs they would have never imagined. Some others decide to program videogames. The more desperate ones open ask blogs. There's even the rare ones who decide to record podcasts to talk about the pony comics in a desperate attempt to fill their empty lives and find some meaning in the dark abyss.

I did (almost) all of those, and here's the result. I am putting together a post with all the reviews of the My Little Pony Micro series produced by IDW. In these podcasts me and my friends, Norman Sanzo and Silver Quill, talk the Micro series and what we consider to be the best and worst comics in it. Strap in for several hours of nothing but pony talk.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic - Episodes 18 to 26 of Season 4.

I AM BACK...more or less.

And holyshit I forgot how much the formatting system of blogger sucks. I think one of the reasons why I stopped using blogger and making reviews here was that, once you stop using its formatting system and coding, you realize how easy other websites make it for you to write things down and edit posts. This might be a good blog to customize and everything, but the way this is set up is awful.

Anyways, I am cheating here though not really, because since I stopped writing reviews here I've managed to keep a good rhythm of reviews on The MBS Show's YouTube channel with my friends Normand Sanzo and Silver Quill. So I've decided to link those videos over here and save myself a world of trouble having to re-write my thoughts on the episodes. You can find all the remaining reviews right after the break.

Yeah, I don't think you guys are really freaking out about me not posting the remaining reviews for the episodes of Season 4 that came right after "Somepony to Watch Over Me", but I'm afraid those are still going to take a while to be produced.

You guessed it, this is another rumor control post! I'm sorry everyone, but I haven't had time to do one of these before. Why? Find the reason after the break!

You might have noticed that I haven't reviewed anything for three weeks. I am pretty sure those of you who loyally check this website every week expecting a review have to be disappointed and for that I apologize. It's kind of interesting how the lack of breaks in between episodes can end up tiring someone out of a TV show, especially when his occupation is somewhat related to it. Below the break follows a rather wordy explanation about where I've been, where I am going, and what you can expect in the future, as well as a longer list of reasons for why I have been absent the past few weeks. I won't make you wait any longer so feel free to head down and start reading.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic "Somepony to Watch Over Me"

I guess sometimes people can be wrong about their assumptions. I originally thought that removing the little summary at the start of the review would speed things out and would make the reviewing process a lot less muddy for me, as if I was going to breeze through the writing like it was nobody’s business. This will not always apply, though. So I have decided to do the little summaries before the real review starts on those episodes where they are necessary. Some episodes will need them, and others will not, and others I will be too wrapped up in details to even do them anyways. This week’s episode is going to have one, and the intro will be about this because I have also made the wrong assumption that I was going to have enough subjects to talk about before starting the review. It’s kind of disappointing to run out of topics, but it’s even more disappointing to stop a tradition that’s over three years old just because I get angry at the Brony Analysts, my commission queue, the pressure from the banks, or just sheer laziness.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic "It Ain't Easy Being Breezies"

You people must all be Breezies. No, really, follow me on this. A few weeks ago I post an entry and I say I 
am going to be taking a break since I just can’t keep up doing these reviews and finishing my commissions. That one post gets flooded with people begging me to go back, for some reason or something. So I do, and I write another episode review the next week, though I end up noticing that the summaries take too much time to write. Some of you mention I could skip the summaries as they aren't really necessary to get to the review part. So for the next one I decide to skip the summary and go straight to what I liked and disliked of the episode. And what do I find? People complaining that they miss the summaries! I seriously can’t understand how SEGA has managed to put up with a similar behavior for over two decades, but the thing is that I don’t know how SeaBreeze has managed to put up with his squad of Breezies for so long either. For spoilers sake I am not going to say what happens in this episode right in the intro, but I have to mention how fickle and weak is the will of these Breezies and how more than once they made me want to smack their adorable, tiny faces. But this is not a place for opinions, it’s a place for intros. I am also skipping the summary for this week’s episode, and for the following ones. I am sticking to this shorter, more manageable style of reviews for the sake of my productivity and your time.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic "Twilight Time"

Last week I was talking about how it was going to be really hard for me not to make a summary of the plot before jumping into the review of the episode. Once again, I prove myself to be an idiot. I don’t think I will be submitting you guys to episode summaries for a while. I've discovered with terrifying dread that, every time I sum up an episode in one of these reviews, I abuse the terms “as it turns out”, “and then”, “the following”, “in the next scene” or “what happens next”. It’s boring, it’s robotic, and some of you don’t even need it. I am pretty sure nobody reads these reviews without watching the episode first, and it’s going to save the both of us a lot of time. You don’t need to read my pointless summary and I don’t need to write one. This means I’ll have to sacrifice my “oh so witty” comments in each one of the acts, but I’m pretty sure you guys won’t even notice. I can only come up with so many jokes before I resort to quoting Top Gear in every screen cap that I use.
