Warning! This is contains spoilers!

Okay, starting with the opening, I LOVE how they tied it into the previous film.

I ALSO loved that we're shown the Dazzlings ARE dangerous even WHEN their power is weakened and it's probably a GOOD thing this happened because their magic is STILL dangerous and I get the feeling they just needed the right moment to strike before becoming a threat again.

I also LOVE the opening with the recap of the first film, but feel the song isn't as good as the original's opening.

One thing that I LOVE is that it's CLEAR these aren't the Equestrian characters but ALTERNATE versions of them who never experienced the same things.

I get the feeling that the Dazzling's manipulations worked BETTER on the Humane Six because these characters HAVEN'T had to deal with Nightmare Moon, Discord, Chrysalis, and so on, or many of the trials the Equestrian Mane Six have. Not that they'd have been steam rolled,, they're still smart, I just got the feeling the Humane Six were more VULNERABLE because they're LESS EXPERIENCED.

I think there was something wrong with the audio on the Battle of the Bands number in the theatre I saw it at, I could only hear Dazzles lyrics. This was the only song that this happened with, odd.

I get the feeling the IDW comics guys responsible for THAT Siren just looked at the concept for the Dazzlings and decided to rip it off, because the Dazzlings feel like everything that Siren SHOULD HAVE BEEN.

I like the imagery when they're talking to Sunset that circle her like sharks, fits their motif quite well.

I think Twilight's breakdown isn't the only thing that blinded her: I think she's MISTAKING the Humane Six for the Equestrian ones and forgetting their friendship hasn't been reforged for as long as HER friends friendship, or nearly as TESTED.

I probably should call Horseapples on Twilight building a dimensional portal with that much ease, but the scene is done so well I can't help but enjoy it and roll with it.

I felt like when the Dazzlings regained their true strength, their human form SHATTERING away to reveal their anthro forms was a GREAT visual and really sold the idea their human prison was what was containing their power.

I also get the feeling the Dazzlings ARE good singers without their magic, but the Elements TOOK THAT AWAY either as punishment or simply a preemptive measure.

Sunset's arc for the movie was also excellent.

I DON'T LIKE that the Dazzlings were allowed to just escape, but eh, maybe they were arrested after or as you suggestion their stolen years will catch up to them.

Overall, great movie, I really enjoyed it. Not as good as the series, but beats the first film.

Also, this was my first time attending a major brony event and interacting with other bronies was AWESOME.

Just saw Gaim's finale. Who would have thought Jam was really Kougane?

And I'd say overall, Gaim was Lighter and Softer by Urobuchi standards, with a fairly happy ending for a change.

Now, it's time to start our engines with Drive!

Well, I think the Variety Show is at a good point for us to do that bit with Gaim. So, you want to start things off, or do you want me to take care of the setup?

You know, for that segment about Gaim we were planning for the Variety Show, I think when we're covering Takatora, one of the first things that has to happen is that one of the others ask if he's able to use a certain technique, which would be a reference to a certain anime.

I'm sure you can guess which anime and technique I'm talking about, right?

By the way, random question about Super Robots and anime.

Hammer, or drill?

Hmm...I like drills, if only because it's a more dynamic weapon, but I love the Goldion Hammer.

You caught the meaning of my deliberately vague question! Impressive!

Yeah, Gaogaigar Vs. Gurren Lagann...unless the GL went into one of its bigger forms, it wouldn't stand much of a chance against the King of Braves. And even then, it would just be a bigger target, and if it was Genesic Gaogaigar, with the Goldion Crusher...yeah, only the TTGL or maybe the Chouginga Gurren Lagann would stand a chance of surviving that.

Yeah, probably.

Might be interesting for the Death Battle crew...

brutality a good point about rainbow power (And i;m quoting him on this)


There are a number of solutions to the problem you mentioned, since the Rainbow Power have become one with the original wielders of the Elements of Harmony, it could be assumed that the magic would also biologically alter them as part of the bonding process. It could make them immortal, thereby preventing the problem of death removing them from the world. Alternatively, the Rainbow Power could make itself inheritable by any progeny of the Mane Six; they would lie dormant by default, but making their bearers instinctively attracted to other inheritors of the Rainbow Power, thereby completing the group, and would allow itself to be activated in times of crisis.
