It's become pretty obvious that Discord has now been entered as one of the big characters in MLP- perhaps more than a background character but less than the mane six and just a few steps behind characters such as the CMC or Big Mac. And might I add- I think I can speak for plenty on how much I'm LOVING this!!

- I liked the changes in the song from each character. How, during Fluttershy's part, the music got happier and lighter, and during Applejack's part, the music got deeper and and even the background got darker. Showing all of fluttershy's friends as dark as the song progressed, and then showing fluttershy turn dark later in the song while she was all bright and happy in the beginning, is sort of like a visual transformation of Fluttershy's feelings (a.k.a the progression of how her friends…Read more >
