Like Your Regular Fad, Only Sparklier.

So, basically, the entire Internet is abuzz with...

... This.

Yes, I know, people everywhere are raving about it. Grown males people. No, I haven't watched it. Me, of the avowed equine affections, of the cuddles-are-awesome outlook, I've... kinda skirted the show. I mean, I watch Doctor Who and Game of Thrones, and this is for girls. KIDLY girls.

... And I'm kinda self conscious. :|

This is the plight of our generation. Our parents didn't have such choices to make.

... Bah, who the fuck am I kidding. :[ *heads over to YouTube*

Our parents didn't have such choices to make.

'course not. Kid shows back then just showed us everything, from City Hunter to Princess Sarah, and there was no disclaimer reading: "Warning boys, this is for girls, go play soccer outside or you'll turn gay!"

(Which would have been hopelessly wrong. I never liked Princess Sarah.)

I see your Princess Sarah and raise you an Aoi Blink. :]

Damn, why can't I have a good old Galaxy Express 999 when I need one?!

Because it's vastly lacking in the pony department.

Never overlook the pony factor.

Wasn't there an episode with a heart-eating ferret though? Or was that also from Aoi Blink?

(Well, no ponies in Princess Sarah either. And in Remy, the pony would probably have died at some point...)

You tell me. I only ever watched one episode of Aoi Blink, and gen. 1 MLP, shall we say, belonged in a forbidden realm where I was not welcome.

Thank heavens now I'm a YouTube-equipped adult and I can watch whatever the bloody hell I want. Now if only this work day would be over already so I can resume watching episode after episode. c_c

"Oh hey, never knew about that, let's look up the premise and OH THANKS WIKIPEDIA FOR SPOILING THE FINAL REVEAL." I really, really detest that aspect of Wiki. You can't look up a page on a book or movie at all, because spoilers are being thrown about like they're going out of fashion. If a forum can have spoiler tags I fail to see why Wiki can't.

Yyyyeah, Wikipedia wants you to KNOW ALL, whether you wanted to or not. Don't ever try to look up rare diseases there. Or at least turn pictures off. x_x
