    Ok, I said I'd watch an episode, SO I DID.

    The episode that I saw was "Look Before You Sleep".

    It was an episode. Can anyone name me a good one?

    EDIT: Ok, after getting some input I gave 3 other episodes a look.

    "Griffon the Brush-Off." A little better.

    "Party of One." Wasn't bad.

    "Sonic Rainboom" Alright.


    Yeah, this show isn't anything different from what I was expecting. It's ok.

    I suppose I would recommend "Suited for success", it was my introduction episode. The whole premise of that episode is something that we as artists relate to quite a bit.

    Haha, given what I've seen already, Rarity is the most unlikeable character on the show, so I really can't say I can truly relate to whatever crap she puts herself into. I more or less WANT bad crap to happen to her.

    But yeah, this show just isn't for me. It's not bad, though.

    Egads!... I thought this was a joke thread... But apparently it's legit!... :3

    Anyways, the voice actor for Rainbow Dash/Applejack is also a lead singer of a band here in Vancouver and I'm kinda addicted to their new song... :p

    that's the thing though, this episode is probably the first to slowly shift your impression of her.

    OMG, Rarity is unlikable? Sorry, but no way. She may be vain but she's always handled as an artist and a businesswoman, not a vapid fashion victim. She doesn't wear what society says is cool, she makes her own clothes according to her own ideas and markets them, running a one-mare-show very successfully.

    Maybe she's a bit shallow and silly at times, but all of the characters have flaws. (If Rarity is in any way unlikable, I declare Rainbow Dash to be unlikable for her jock-ness and self-centredness, but those are just parts of her that make her who she is.)

    In which episode? "Look Before You Sleep" and "Sonic Rainboom" (the only episodes I saw that had her important to the plot) showed her as a self centered pretentious snob who likes having arbitrary rationales to look down on others and wants to be the center of attention.

    I GUESS "Suited for Success" is about the artist and businesswoman angle you're talking about, but I only gave the episode a minute or two. I felt no urge to continue because I already gave the series 2 hours of my time, and I concluded that it wasn't something I liked enough to watch anymore.

    That's not a maybe. That's all I ever saw from the character.

    Rainbow Dash certainly isn't self centered, given what I saw in "Griffon the Brush-Off". What's "jock-ness?"

    can't help you if you don't like it. each character has their ups and downs, but believe me when i say rarity is refreshingly different from what you initially might perceive her as.

    ...Mind you, but even is she is handled as an artist and businesswoman, it doesn't automatically mean she'd be likeable to everyone. And then you basically go on to saying that if you find one character unlikeable (of reasons that Psychotime didn't even say as far as I know) then you should find the other ones too? Personal likes and dislikes do affect a lot here (I'm sure everyone here has at least one character [of any series] that they dislike that others like), so...

    I didn't intend so say it like that, sorry if it came across as such. I was trying to point out why I personally think Rarity is not unrelatable at all because usually her role would be the chick whose tastes are determined by society and who's totally vain, which is not how she is treated at all. So she may be a lot of things but I don't find her unapproachable at all.

    Besides, I never said I didn't like Rainbow Dash. I say that there are things one could easily dislike about her but they are part of her character and flaws that are balanced by her good traits.

    Sorry that it came out badly, I've had very little sleep and food for the past two weeks, my brain was kind of muddled typing it.

    Yeah, I didn't assume you personally didn't like Rainbow Dash, but even still, personal likes and dislikes tend to play such a huge part with what character you like or dislike that things like that don't necessarily affect the personal opinion. I like some characters that are unbalanced and flat, and I like some characters that are well written and balanced and all between, and though I can say "X is a really flat character with no redeeming qualities" I can still like them because there's just something that I like, even if they really aren't well written as characters.

    Like you personally said, you personally find Rarity likeable and can relate to her and I'm sure so will many others, but not everyone will.

    Don't know if it has been posted here before or not, but I stumbled onto this Blog post of the old (I think) "My Little Pony" toys, where people have taken it upon themselves to customise them. For instance, there is a Boba Fett Pony and a Pony Encased in Carbonite. My personal fav is the Xenomorph pony.

    I thought I'd share the link with you MLP lovers because I thought you might get a kick out of it: http://www.buzzfeed.com/rebeccae/my-...pony-for-geeks
