it's like G1 and G3 meet a certain category of mlp OC designs and CGI animation

I swear
they even use the same squeaky muttering crowd interaction voices as G3
and the cupcakes-are-stolen-by-a-thing thing is also very G3
but the 'castle of adventure' thing is more G1



I am so hyped about this



FILLY FUNTASIA FILLY FUNTASIA YEAH!

FUNTASIA DAILY http://www.funtasiadaily.com/ YEAH!

FANARTS ARE A GO (not by me, yet, but I'll draw some tomorrow)



YEAH YEAH!
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOHOOHOO~



okay honestly their lack of nostrils terrifies me

Saw the trailer for it last week. It definitely has elements of Me-Too-ness and the character designs are rather... undisciplined. The voice acting is also flat, devoid of nuance, and unconvincing.
And it has the same problem that almost all current CGI TV shows have; the world around the characters is empty and dead because it takes too long to animate and render all the extra background characters and environmental interactions that would make it seem real. The solution to this technical limitation is apparently just to not put anybody in the background at all, ever.
Kung Fu Panda suffered from this tremendously, even to the point of looking like it was animated with a bunch of statues at times. TMNT 2012 might have the absolute emptiest NYC ever, but at least they made up for it with their designs, comic-like splash frames, and visually innovative scene transitions. Don't even get me started on Beware The Batman.
It's interesting to go back and watch what ReBoot was doing in the ancient 1990s and see how they handled background characters and environmental movement. With much greater limitations on hardware, software, and even animation techniques they still managed to create a world that seemed alive. That requires a lot of effort and skill in terms of visual design, camera angles, and tough decisions during production about what to put in and what to leave out. I just don't think modern CGI TV shows are making this effort.

But the biggest strike against Filly is that it's writing way below the level of FiM. While they're both cartoons about magical talky-horses for youngsters, Filly is definitely not drawing the important lessons from FiM's success. They're obviously aiming for toddlers, and toddlers only. This is one of those kids' shows that would be painful to sit through.

no
they just used the same principles as the OC designers who think everyone should be royalty and that their badass OC should have a scar over their eye and yet somehow still have that eye and everything should be cluttered and anti-minimalist because YEAH





Incidentally, I only know about it because of DinkySharkFighter32
she has a poster for it in the background

woooo

On the first map you can call the first ten waves all at once and still beat the first boss without letting any enemies through =\

I like the remix of the song from the first game they put on the "classic" maps!

everything jumping the shark



____


Seriously, I'm more hyped for Filly than I am for season 4 of FiM, even though new episodes of FiM will be coming sooner

I want to seeeeeeeeee~.

In the episode we know about, Bella's going to end up having some sort of Aesop about getting caught up in her friends' lie about the cupcakes, and the people in charge of the school are going to have to face their own failings in letting a child's tall tale get so blown out of proportions, to the point where even Battiwigs (admittedly pretty much the most pathetic antagonist ever, but also someone completely uninvolved) gets freaked about it

but what else has it got
see
we don't know


FiM's original premise has pretty much run its entire course, so it has to start fresh with the new situation in some interesting way or it won't be any good

Filly, tho
