Hi guys. It's been a while since I've posted something here but this will be my final message: after the end of the season five... I'm quitting MLP and I won't watch anything coming after that point (althought I'll still rewatch the old episodes). Yup. Even thought I was really loving the S5 until Scare Master, various factors convinced me to change schedule and quitting MLP by the end of this season:
-What About Discord was a really weak episode and The HoofFields and the McColts as much solid it was, used a cliché kind of plot, and those episodes convinced me that after years of success right now writers are starting running out of ideas;
-Amy Keating Rogers, Meghan McCarthy and M.A. Larson are all gone (or better, the first is gone, and the other two will have less inputs on the show from now on since Meghan is now head of storytelling in Hasbro and Larson will replace her as story editor letting him to do less episodes than before) and many others incompeteant new writers like that Dusedau guy will replace them, taking the show to a gradual quality drop;
-And my most personal reason: I've seen this before a lot of times, there have been a lot of great cartoons/videogames series I used to love that then fallen into other hands becoming crap in the process (Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Spongebob, Dexter's Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls, Metroid, Sly Cooper and the developer Rareware after Microsoft bought it), and now MLP is going to that route as well. I don't have the guts to see MLP doing the end of all the things I loved in past so retiring is my only hope to keep just good memories of this show.
I'm really really really sorry to do this I really want to see factors that make me hyped for the S6 but there simply aren't. To me Magical Mystery Cure, Pinkie Pride, Twilight's Kingdom, Tanks for the Memories, Amending Fences and Crusaders of the Lost Marks will forever be the peaks of quality of this show, and considering the premises, the probabilities of the S6 getting something of that level are...... unexistent. In short after five years, my journey in the pony world will be over in 13 days. It was hard for me taking this decision, but I just don't have the guts to see MLP becoming bad like the other series I love had.... I hope you understand
