“Why, Ms. Sparkle? Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep helping your friends? Do you believe you’re getting something in return? More than a thank-you? Can you tell me what it is? Do you even know? Is it apples? Or good weather? Perhaps dresses? Yes? No? Could it be for love? Illusions, Ms. Sparkle. Vagaries of pony-ception. The temporary constructs of a feeble pony intellect trying desperately to justify an existence that is without sadness or despair. And all of them as artificial as the Maretrix itself, although only a pony mind could invent something as heartwarming as love. You must be able to see it, Ms. Sparkle. You must know it by now. You can’t win. It’s pointless to keep helping your friends. Why, Ms. Sparkle? Why? Why do you persist?”
“…Because friendship is magic!”
“My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic”, I can only recommend watching it (in contrast to “Matrix Revolutions”). At least if you’re not a 16 year old male teenager who has to prove his manliness to the world at any given moment. You can watch the entire series on MenloMarseilles’ YouTube channel. The first two episodes are a bit too corny for my taste, but the character design is really done well and the facial expressions are pure gold. However, the characters often talk fast and have American accents, so non-native speakers may need the transcripts of the episodes posted on the My Little Pony Wiki. Another source of information about the show is the Equestria Daily blog. I’m sure nobody believed a cartoon series based on a toyline for little girls could be entertaining at all. Kudos to Lauren Faust and her team for making the impossible highly unlikely happen.
