>>38593731Princess Zipp is best girl
Looks terrible 2/10G%ers will love it
>>38593731Damn, this really feels even more childish than TYT and ANG.And what's with Izzy's voice?
>>38593731I hate it.
>>38593816>And what's with Izzy's voice?Replaced by a bad one
>>38593731I won't watch a second until the full thing is out. Is this the actual G% show, or just a special?
>>38593731Love it, screw the tourists on here.
>>38593855Trying much too hard.
>>38593852Just a special but it's meant to tie into the series and is made the exact same people.
>>38593860>kneejerking that fast>no you're trying too hard
>>38593879What the fuck are you on about, schizo?
>>38593852>>38593863Netflix refers to it as "Make Your Mark Chapter 1" and the show will be called "Make Your Mark" too. It's more of a first episode than a random isolated special like Rainbow Roadtrip.
>>38593816>Damn, this really feels even more childish than TYTHowI’m all for ripping on stuff, but it’s a bunch of friends sending out a feed to promote a festival. It’s hardly any worse than Pinkie Pie showing up at someone’s door and breaking into song.
>>38594051Not him but maybe he means the expressions. Everyone is like O_O all the fucking time. It seems like the new series focus group is below 6 now while it was like 10 before. Also all those garish colors would underline that theory.
>>38594059Dude, the target audience has always been in the single digits. It's fine.
>>38593731why does izzy look so fucking tired at 1:02
>>38593731I hate how fucking low cost it is.Not a single thing is detailed from the environment.If the character is not in focus it is almost completely still, stuck in the last "focus" position.Most movements are low keyframe linear.Surfaces are flat. Just look at the cobblestone.The manes are not stuck to their heads. Wtf. Probably completely separate objects just pinned to the head instead of the skin. Its sliding around on their heads. See Zipp at 1:13 frame by frame, its the best seen there.Also wtf with the motion blur when the camera is panning around? Its like 10 times more than what's required. There is a fuckton of blur on general animation too.Still, its not as bad as I was expecting it to be but its definitely not good enough to be well good.
>>38594095I noticed that too. At first I thought it might be from the coloring, but maybe she got no sleep?Also blonde haired white ponies with pink accents…if only their eyes were blue instead of green, there’d be a lot of jokes
Did Sunny say everybrony?
>>38593775FPBP. She's the only good thing in this shitfest. I'd never consider watching it without her.
>>38594152At about 2:03
>>38593731Why does the animation look like something from 15 years ago? I know going from a movie budget to TV budget is a massive downgrade, but I'd expect it to look better than this.
>>38594211It could be worse. If I made it through the first three seasons of RWBY, I can make it through this.
>>38593731>The audio editing error on Izzy at 2:58God this shit is so amateurish
>>38594158BUY OUR TOYS AND PLAYSETS
>>38594253As if FiM didn't have plenty of animation error and such. That happened even in the oh-so-beloved S1.
>>38594253What error? Sounds okay to me.
>>38593731>>38593775>first minute is pure, unfiltered ZippkinoVery nice.
Shockingly substandard, even outside the MLP franchise. What exactly is the main selling point here? Was this designed to fail?
>>38594312designed for what executives think kids will want to watchdesigned to be "just enough"so perhaps indirectly designed to fail
>>38594312It's surprising: Hasbro is self-reporting this show in the "Toddler/Preschool" category to their investors. That sector however is utterly and completely saturated, in part even by their own other franchises (i.e. Peppa Pig). This means they must have had to come up with exceptional production value or some outstanding quality in the writing for this show to be noticed by anyone at all - otherwise the youtube algorithm will rank this among the mass-produced copy/paste cartoons that are being put out by the dozens each day, rather than taking 4 years to make. Surely Hasbro knew this and accounted for it? Surely Hasbro isn't free-wheeling straight into the dumpster fire to burn all their money?
>>38593731Worse than the movie. I guess it was to be expected, but im still disappointed.
>>38593731> Izzy voice was best in the movie, now she gets shitty voice> Zipp gets worse voice in the movie now she has good voice
>>38594493>Hasbro is self-reporting this show in the "Toddler/Preschool" category to their investorsUh huh.
>>38594124Did you forget how low budget and shitty season 1 of FIM looked? Go watch it and take off your rose tinted glasses, the animation was very stunted and amateur looking.
>>38594312It's for little girls, not for (You)
>>38593731Bros i honetly like the you tube shorts much more than this. The backgrounds look lifeless and character models lack expressions and dynamic movement. Why would anyone approve this over 2D series? Who wanted a cheap CGI series?
>>38594158I only watch G5 to see Zipp cuck Sunny
>>38593731Kino Zipp intro ruined by Sunny the Princess of Exposition.
>>38594582Why are you replying to the dude when you don't even remotely answer any of his questions?
>>38593731Oh my God does the movie, 2D show and 3D cartoon each have a different set of voice actors for themselves?
>>38594689I don't know, IMDB lists the same cast for both TYT and MYM
>>38594513Fashion brands? MLP is a "fashion" brand? What the fuck, what even is a "fashion brand" and how does it differ from a preschool brand ?
>>38594568I thought it was charming and better than the later seasons.
>>38594689Izzy's voice sounds different from the movie, and from TYT.
>>38594135They remind me of Derpys color scheme
Why is Izzy so depressed for this one second then normal for the rest of the scene?
>>38594791Would be kino as fuck if she was detoxing.
>>38594805Weren't unicorns depressed before they got their magic backMaybe that's her true nature showing
>>38593731Huh. Actually better than expected compared to the trailer but it’s still so damn hard to look at. Izzy’s VA is better again though, thank fuck. Writing is fine. VA is fine, Sunny even has soul. Just absolutely crippled by the visuals. Why?
>>38594830Huh, you're the first to say Izzy's voice is fine.
>>38593731Wait, are these voices different from the 5 minute shorts voices?
Also, Zipp’s flying sequence at the intro is DIRE. This should be setting the stage for the visuals, and…well it does, but in the worst way.
>>38594694mlp is a "fashion brand" in the sense that alongside the toys they sell, they also make a lot of clothing merchandise for stores. They also pay influencers to do weird shit like pic related
>>38594833I absolutely cannot stomach the acting or direction for TYT Izzy, so a regression towards ANG energy is a step up for me. Just my take though. Ditto Pipp to a lesser degree
>>38594853Pipp has been bad every time. I wonder how they ever want to salvage this character.
>>38594168I think it’s just a very soft P, maybe she said a B to reduce vocal pop, but I can hear it both ways.
>>38594867I don’t think they are planning to. It seems like she is going to be at the sacrificial “appeal to the youth” character, and they aren’t planning to build her out beyond being THE PRINCESS for little girls and the influencer for slightly less little girls. The writers seem competent overall, so I think they know what they’re doing, it’s just that what they are doing is hard to watch. You know when people say “it’s not for you; it’s a show for little girls?” I think Pipp is the actual distillation of that, where the whole character is just “power fantasy for the target demo.”
>>38594689And video game too I believe.
>>38594689Tell Your Tale and Make Your Mark have the same voice cast, confirmed by the VAs themselves on Twitter.
>>38594689>>38594938I wonder why they keep changing the vas for this series?Is it just cheaper? Or has Hasbro made so much money the last gen that they can just burn through it
>>38594946Well that's goodMaybe the voice direction is different for the main seriesI'm guessing they're going for a different tone than TYT
>>38594946Well my ears confirm a different voice for Izzy. Even if it is the same actor.
>>38594955Yeah the directing is clearly different
>>38594805She do have those crows feet, looks like she ain’t been sleeping
>>38594949Because the movie used big name celebrities that would be to expensive to keep for a normal TV show especially ones outsourced to Canada, though i am surprised they couldn't keep Kimiko Glenn as Izzy considering she has been a regualar on TV shows before.It was always the plan to have celebrities in G5's launch movie and then have sound-alike for the series, even when G5 was gonna have the retooled Mane 6 as the lead.Though for the video game i have no idea why it's different, maybe for contract reasons?
>>38594993Makes sense I mean wasn't the next generation supposed to be a theater release originally but since the pandemic hit they couldn't do that
>>38594993if they kept her but not the other celebs then there is absolutely someone out there that would complain about it. Better to just get rid of them all then to keep one
>>38594993I think that's more due to the 'outsourced to Canada' bit. FiM had to mostly use Canadian VAs with the Canadian animation company, aside from Tara Strong and guest stars.
Plot wise it’s average. But animation wise it’s hot fucking garbage. Literally if the animation was better this wouldn’t be all that bad. My only complaint. It just looks sooo cheap. I’ve seen better animation out of a Highschool animation class project.
>>38594828>Unicorns loose their magic>Get depressed as a result, except for Izzy who is happy>Unicorns get their magic back>Get happy as a result, except for Izzy, who becomes sad
>>38593731I think that Fortnight He-Man animation looks better. Izzy also sounds strange. The movie version was enthusiastic but had an underlying somberness to it. Like an enthusiastic innocent child. This one feels like she's trying too hard to be enthusiastic.
>>38593731Fuck dude, the animation is below Sonic Boom tier. That was a weekly show though, not a movie, so it at least had a reason to be stiff. This though is just sad. The little jump Izzy does at 1:07 is just pathetic.
>>38594849Do I even want to know what these things are being paid to do?
>>38594849yo the drip tho
>>38595565This, but unironically.
>>38594849Can I get a confirmation if this is /fa/ or not?
g5 really like ragging on earth ponies huh
>>38593731Could only think of one thing during that whole video.>Toothpaste hair saves ponies>Literally drops them on tram rails afterwards>Everyone keeps standing on the fucking rails of all places for the rest of the plotAbsolute genius.
>>38594849>>38594694No, they're just not allowed to say "little girl" brand, so they're using an euphemism ("fashion" brand just means "girl" brand).
>>38594513Are you blind? MLP is specifically separate from "pre-school" brands.
>>38594568Have you looked at any similar 3D series? They just get worse over time. Once they build up enough base movements, they are going to reuse everything over and over. They won't bother with any improvements.
>>38594513I doesn’t think you read the word sentences so good.That ain’t what them there word sentences say.
It's pretty mediocre to bad. g5 fags will love it, what can you do.
>>38597563we will get use to it if the story is enjoyable, i like the G5 stuff but we're not dumb enough to pretend this CGI is any good
>>38597674>we will eat this mound of shit if there is a drizzle of hershey's syrup on itI wonder how many G%ers also support Bethesda's practices from 2011 onward too
>>38596152As is proper. Mud horses need no apply.
>>38599393I watch shit for the story, but I'll still call out bullshit visuals. I may look forward to G5, but Hasbro needs to up their fucking game if they're going to pull the 3D lever in 2022.And since you mentioned Bethesda, they're using the same fucking engine from 2002 to make games 20 years later, and it shows when they can't even handle 20 people on screen. They need to clean their shit because I don't know what the fuck they're doing over there. I want to look forward to Starfield and ESVI, but I can't when they still pull this bullshit.
>>38599393>implying the main point of this medium is animationYou can gather the best animators or best CGI technology to remake "Yakkity Sax" or "Applejack Day Off" and it's still going to be a stinky piece of shit, on the other hand you probably can name a lot of great video games with shit graphic but interesting story like Telltale Walking Dead S1.
>>38593731Why is Izzys voice so shit compared to the movie? They didn't even try to find a closer voice actress.
>>38600037>You can gather the best animators or best CGI technology to remake "Yakkity Sax" or "Applejack Day Off" and it's still going to be a stinky piece of shitYou reminded me of a post I wrote regarding this infamous comparison. It was something about how Fall Weather Friends couldn't look cheaper but it was a great episode, while Non-Compete Clause actually looked much higher quality but the episode was just soulless. Point was, good writing is better than "good" animation.Then again, this was four years ago. Making the exact same post today would be heresy because now we're supposed to pretend that animation peaked with 2010 Flash gradients.
>>38600384you telling me it didnt?
>>38593855Bro if you like it no one cares, but stop trying to make it seem like its more than just like 10 of you guys that feel that way about g5. I wanted it to be good, and th3 movie was fine too. But they arnt even trying with this gen from the start. Just imagine what this show will be like in 1-2 seasons. Theres no way this shows going up from here
>>38593731>more cases of blatant magnetic hoovescan they not
>>38594568Is that way it blew up, and became one of tge most popular shows at the time? Weird that g5 is panned by almost everone Im being sarcastic you are both retarded and coping very hard over this. If you werent coping you wouldnt feel the need to say trash tv is better than art someone put their full heart into
>>38601235>Is that way it blew up, and became one of tge most popular shows at the time?By having well rounded characters and good writing and lesson for kids and adults to learn? Yes.>Weird that g5 is panned by almost everone Literally nobody is hating on G5 except the autists on this board. They're just mad because they didn't renew FIM for another 20 seasons like Simpsons or Family Guy.
>>38602052>Literally nobody is hating on G5 except the autists on this boardNobody is hating on it because it's so bland no one gives a shit even to hate it.
>>38594568Yeah it was so bad it inspired thousands of artists to create on the internet. Your take is literally retarded or informed by youth and ignorance
>>38600062They want to make her Pinkie 2.0
>>38593731It looks SO CHEAP
>>38602236I think that the perception of imalous "success" inspires artists to create more than any of actual g5 does
>>38593731What the fuck happened to Sunny, what kind of accent is this.She pronounces "can't" as KYEAYANT
>>38602236Shit media no matter how bad it is will always have a group of people who consume and enjoy it, doesn't make it any less shit though
>>38596152>Turning Earth Ponies into segregationist and racists What's the problem?
>>38603243There is none
>>38593731Holy shit Izzy's voice is absolute trash
>>38600037>Applejack Day OffI don't get it, what's so bad about that episode? Youtubers, EqD, /mlp/ shit on it, but I just don't see what's so bad about it. It sure is better than "Honest Apple".
>>38604586Some of that episode can be salvaged by taking out the forced twilicorn dialog that they sprinkled throughout the show like landmines that ultimately amounted to nothing
>>38603181Simple. They replaced all the VAs with Canadians.
>>38605025VAs were always Canadians, ever since G1.
>>38593731Atrocious. Uninspiring. Souless
>>38605430Yeah, but not in the movie, for which they hired ecelebs for.
