1. This little documentary was much more interesting than I expected. I actually watched it twice in one week.
2. It’s about how the show “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” was created to use the classic My Little Pony characters as archetypes for various positive character traits, and challenge female stereotypes. It was aimed at little girls.
3. What nobody expected is that guys got obsessed with the show, too, and began to call themselves “bronies” - which is a combination of “bro” and “pony”. Their favorite form of greeting is the fist bump - which they call the "bro hoof".
4. The movie follows several different bronies from all over the world, and how they found each other. It also goes into the difficulties they face for being open about how much they like a
“girlie show”. It also shows their journeys to various “BronyCons”, which are huge conventions of bronies.
5. People that are uncomfortable with bronies suspect that they are either gay, or the opposite - they like little girls too much. This movie does a good job of dispelling those myths. One of the more interesting scenes is a gathering of bronies in the military.
6. What’s fascinating is how this show has obviously hit a real nerve among men - this is not an isolated phenomenon. We see people from redneck small towns, couples in Germany, a DJ in Israel, and a British kid with Asperger's Syndrome. This is not an isolated fetish.
7. Some bronies feel this documentary is too one-sided, by making bronies all look socially awkward and prone to discrimination.Read more ›
The production quality was very good and the animation for then segment transitions was show quality and made me laugh. I would recommend this to anyone concerned and wanting to know what this fandom is all about. It doesn’t cover everything but shows the hardships and ridicule some of us face in the fandom. This also shows the creativity of the fandom and just how much we take the lessons to heart. I know these people, I know this community and glad to be apart of it.
If you had told me this came from a kickstarter, and was funded by bronies, i'd be shocked.
If you're looking for really deep, super-secret information, you might be disappointed. Most of the information in this product is out there on fan-built websites.
Personally, I liked the extended interview with Lauren Faust in this Complete Edition the most. However, there isn't really any super secrets revealed in the interviews.
Great for someone just starting to get curious about the fandom.

Shockingly, not bad. The fandom is mostly socially awkward people on the autism spectrum, but they seem to be very sweet, loving, and open as a group. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Charles Grogan

Five minutes in and I don't like the way the director throws gay men under the bus. Oh we like My Little Pony, said the man, but at least we're not gay. Screw. This.Published 5 months ago by inhighspeed
