Testing if this works with my 3DS, this is supposed to be a 3DS compatible image where you can view it in 3D once you hold your stylus or finger when clicking it in the 3DS Internet Browser. Will add an Edit: if it Works. If not... well enjoy some artist's well done CG Rarity anyway

EDIT: Yes it does Work :] For those who have a 3DS and able to use the Browser go to this thread and use the stylus but make sure to hold. It will then send you to a viewable in 3D version of the image with it looking like Rarity is popping out of the screen

Rarity looks so adorkable with the glasses. :p

She's my...fourth favorite pony. I guess it would go like:

Pinkie Pie (and Spike)

Rainbow Dash
Fluttershy
Rarity

Applejack
Twilight Sparkle

My favorite will always be Twilight so I seem to be very different from your list considering you seem to have put her at the bottom. But personally I can't rank them 1-6. They're all good characters in their own right and all are a reason the show is popular as it is.

It's not that I dislike her, but she seems like she was sort of forced into certain episodes where she was kind of unneeded.

Anyways, just a quick poll. Who else looks at backgrounds to find Derpy Hooves?

I do look for Derpy alot, though I like to do that more when I'm rewatching an episode. Like when Best Night Ever aired I noticed Derpy during Applejack's part of "At the Gala" but didn't really notice others for the most part. When I watched it again on Youtube I saw 5 Derpy appearences. Hope to do the same in Season 2, especially since Derpy appearances will now be storyboarded as a Where's Waldo for the fanbase and not just as an afterthought.

And as for Twilight she is the main character after all, but I know what you mean with some episodes she didn't really serve a purpose besides being there.

Why do you guys watch this?
This is ok for 5 year olds not teenager and such No offence guys
Hey! I feel offended Mr..>:[
Don't let it get to you, Koopa Kid just thought we were watching a show that's the girly bland crap that MLP shows were once before. And there are many people on the internet who can't stand the attention the show gets that don't understand until they see an episode or 2.

Seems so long ago.
Bump.

lol still have yet to bother really watching it

I'll say that the fandom amuses me so much, though. (when they're not being sick @#&!#s, but from a safe view in my case)

Well for the sick part, none of Bronies who are my friends on chat or others I've spoke to are like that. I can understand some of the weird comments that might freak people out on some parts of fansites. Though it does suck for when people come by anonymously and see those comments first before any rational comments and think all Bronies want to date (Or all kinds of worse alternatives...) cartoon horses.

Besides that though, the fandom is really great as alot of cool stuff has come out and will in the future. 2 MMOs (One 2D and the other 3D) in Progress included. Just recently they managed to get Pony models working for Garry's Mod

Every fandom has people who ship the characters/draw porn of them.

If it exists, there is porn of it. If there is no porn of it, it will be made.

Also, anyone else read Equestria Daily?
nope. Why?
EDIT: i thought you asked about today. Yes i have read it. But i'm mostly on Ponychan instead of there. And i seen a user from here there...

I check Equestria Daily...well Daily. Always want to know what's going on in the fanbase. I don't read many fanfics though, but I don't use the no Fan-Fiction mode for the case there is something I'm interested into enough to read. I don't go to the chat though. For talk with Bronies I go to a smaller forum called Equestria Forums (No relation to Equestria Daily really)
 

Snowstalker

Snowstalker
Yeah, I usually skip the fanfics (most are boring, though I've actually seen some pretty good ones), and I've seen some...odd pairings. Big Mac/Zecora, Spike/Apple Bloom, Fluttershy/Bic Mac (the latter gets used a lot, being one of the few male ponies).

I do watch Brony Movie Night; look for someone named interior_gummy in the chat room (me, lol).

Some people are starting to ask this a little more frequently. "Why is My Little Pony is Popular"

While it's not easy to explain it all in one post as it's preferable to look up that answer but I'll try my best here.

Friendship is Magic is a cartoon that started back in Late 2010 headed by famed Animator Lauren Faust. If you've heard of her, she helped with award winning cartoons such as Powerpuff Girls, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. If you liked either of those 2 shows it's highly suggested you give FiM a look. Anyway, though it's not the fact that Lauren Faust is behind it on why it's popular. While it already gives it a good resume. FiM has some of the best writing, characterization and even it's humor is some of the best in years. Many of the older fans even saying that FiM ranks up with their favorite 90's cartoons back in the day. It is not the girly-girly bland crud that previous MLP shows were as Lauren tried her hardest to make this cartoon appeal to families. That includes the so-called "target" little girls/kids, including parents further more including MALE parents.

Trust me, most Bronies/Fans were skeptical at first. Do you think I was like "Oh a new MLP Show? I just know this is going to be awesome!" from the very beginning? Because I can very well tell you I was not. Yes there will always be the stubborn who will either think this is weird or even point fun at you. But with the sheer numbers of the fanbase growing those few haters will feel like nothing as you see how many including those even older then you getting into the show. This graph made by someone on Deviantart illustrates greatly how the fanbase works http://alfa995.deviantart.com/art/Twilight-s-black-hole-diagram-242941566

Anyway, it spread on the internet starting with 4chan after an article that bashed the fact creator-driven cartoons are ending which included FiM as one of it's targets. People on 4chan decided to check out the show and to many's surprise it hooked them and slowly but surely and steadily the craze around the show supposedly for "Little Girls" was getting fans including tons of male adult fans. Around March the fanbase really ramped up. By now it's hard to find a site that hasn't mentioned it at least once. It also became popular in the memetic communities where reaction faces galore were made from the show. For more information on both the history of the show and the rise of it in Meme-related stuff see this Know Your Meme page: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/subcultures/my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic (Where it's listed as a Subculture even!)
Also the staff of the show know about the huge internet fanbase and embraced it with open arms. The fanbase and the staff are so tight that a simple animation mistake from Episode 1 on a grey Pegasus with Yellow mane and Tail with Bubbles for a cutie mark where she had derped eyes was noticed on 4chan and fannamed Derpy Hooves. It became so popular that from Episode 15 and on, "Derpy" was purposely given derped eyes for most of the rest of her apperences in Season 1. And now with Season 2 coming, Derpy will actually be included in the storyboard process as a Where's Waldo type of deal.

Really all this talking about it isn't even the best way to explain it. Really the best way to do so is to actually check out the show yourself. If your curious enough, I'd recommend seeing the first episode. After seeing the episode here's what you possibly can do depending how you felt about it

1. You liked it/found it somewhat interesting - If you did kinda like more things then one, it's highly recommended you see the 2nd Episode so you can see the ending of the Pilot. You can also decide to think of the character you liked to see and see episodes relating to them.

2. Didn't really enjoy it or Only found one thing/character interesting - If this happens well, if you even feel like going still pick the character you did like and find episodes for them. Otherwise perhaps FiM isn't for you after all, at least you gave it a try and as long as you don't act like jerks to those who do like the show. You can move on. For those here still somehow wanting to get into ponies perhaps this comic applies to you http://ponibooru.413chan.net/_images/409634ae5922754b1a3befa361fa3366/32257%20-%20bronies%20comic%20married_to_the_sea.gif

Also, if and only IF you start liking it. It's natural that your going to feel a "Why do I like this?!" phase. And for those concerned on liking things like this I would like to post this quote from C. S. Lewis that could very well be relevent to the fans of this show

"Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." -C.S. Lewis
If this is tl,dr for you I'm sorry. It does take a bit of a long explanation for the show. Which is why actually trying out the show yourselves is the best way you can really see what's all the hype about. As just explaining it all in one post, etc. is not all that easy. Seriously if your that curious give the show a try at the most. If you didn't find it to your liking no biggie, at least you tried and again just don't be a jerk to those that do.

Yes, it's actually not a horrible show. Men up to 20 watch this show. It's a well-written show with some actual character development, unlike the other intolerable, crappy MLPs of the past. :p. You should watch it and see what I mean by this. ;).

Almost every episode has a Youtube comment along the lines of "I am an ex-marine professional bear wrestler and I love MLP."

Your giant comment has failed to sway me. Yes, I unfortunately have watched it when my 5-year-old cousins came over and I had to babysit them.

It was terrible, and I still honestly have no idea why people like it, even with your giant post. You say to pick one character who I'd like? I didn't like any of them. They were all simply these hyped up horses who are terrified of rabbits and enjoy living in their happy fairyland. Anyone above the age of 8, and maybe 9, should be embarrassed to say they like this show. This idiotic fad of liking it needs to end.
