I realised the one thing that makes Equestria Girls better than its parent franchise when it comes to reformation, is that Equestria Girls puts a big emphasis on personal responsibility. You have to own what you've done and honestly want to do better in future.

It was a huge part of Sunset's arc, and she won't have problems forgiving someone if they show genuine remorse. Cinch is so terrible because she's an older woman who takes absolutely no personal responsibility for using and manipulating the children in her care. 

Personal responsibility and the desire to change for the better is often glossed over in FiM. Starlight feeling honest remorse wasn't crucial to her being given a second chance, and that was one of the major issues with it. 

The running theme of Equestria Girls is actively trying to do better, and getting their with the help of friends. FiM doesn't have that kind of depth to it, which is why redemption doesn't work as well in FiM.

I could use a pick-me-up. I'll reblog this over on Tumblr as well, but feel free to hit this up.

What OTPs in your fandom(s) do you just not get?
Are there any popular fandom OTPs you only BroTP?
Any fandoms that don’t appeal to you?
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Why? Honestly I'll tell you right off the bat, if I ever did unfollow someone, it was because they posted junk that I wasn't interested in.
Do you have a NoTP in [insert fandom here]?
Has fandom ever ruined a pairing for you?
Is there anything you used to like, but now can’t stand?
Unpopular opinion about [insert fandom here]?

 I think I can honestly say now that Natsume's Book of Friends has made it onto the list of my top 5 favourite anime. 

Netflix, god why.

I've gotten so spoiled by Crunchyroll and FUNimation, which give me nice simulcasts of currently airing anime. So much so that I've forgotten how to look for fucking fansub torrents. I don't think I've looked for them in years! Never mind the fact that Crunchyroll and FUNimation kind of decimated fansub groups due to making currently airing anime available so easily. To be clear, I'm not really complaining about this. The industry complains about piracy. I say that you fight piracy by making it easier to obtain legal copies. People are lazy. I am lazy. I'm happy to fork over a monthly subscription fee so I can watch current anime in one place via my PC, Roku, phone, tablet, etc.

I am, however, complaining about fucking Netflix, which licensed Kakegurui (based on the female gambling manga I raved about on Twitter a couple years back) and decided to... wait until the season is over and drop it in one completed batch? Okay, like, I get this is their brand. Binging is Their Thing. But learn a little something about your fucking audience! Anime fans do not want to wait a month after the entire season is over to watch the entire series at once! We want to watch the series one episode per week! THAT IS HOW OUR FANDOM WORKS.

Ugh. I am so resentful that I'm having to pirate this show. I'm happy to support it, but I'm also not waiting until October or November to watch it! Jesus, the show has no chance of blowing up because of this. None. Literally none. Anime fans will be moving onto new and shiny fall anime by then!


Well ...

 There is an awful lot of Sabine/Leia shipping fuel in the latest Star Wars: Forces of Destiny!
