It's not like anime-styled humanized pony fanart has been up since...immediately after the show began airing in 2010. Some of it's been good, others have looked kind dull, like this little video. There's almost always something in the intricacies of design that give away that it was done by a Westerner.

This was on EQD days ago, nice little piece I guess. Although I'd hate to see an official work that took colorful cartoon ponies and turned them into generic moe anime characters. Glad stuff like this is left to fan works.

And INb4 the this isn't anime rant posts. Razz

But yeah fun to see crossover stuff like this from fans, although I imagine an actual MLP anime would probably end up just a big a mess a PPGZ. Laughing

Yeah not really surprised after seeing this, I knew MLP would cause something like this when they release the show in Japan.

EDIT: my mistake, this has nothing to do with Japan.

Well, everything and everyone is being turned to pubescent anime girls nowadays, so why not!
Not bad for an amateur 19-yr-old.

Why is everyone ignoring the fact that this already happened?:

Lol, yeah the Equestria Girls do have somewhat anime-ish designs, although still with their bright cutie pony colors. Laughing

I guess they're too much into the iconography, marketing and participatory fanart to actually WATCH any of the OAV videos... Rolling Eyes

I have to ask--No, seriously:
How many of the HS and college "bronies" and fangirls actually know it was a stomach-churningly soppy 80's toytoon being revived for Saturday-morning license renewal, and not some "hip anime-style" trend made just for them?
Are they even AWARE they might just as well be watching http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXWocB1vkQs?'
(And when is the new Strawberry Shortcake going to become a campus trend?)

All of them. Lol. "Hip anime-style?" What in MLP does that describe?
