Sunday Morning Comics 34

Canterlot
by ~Nelvakre

So no clue on Season 3, I heard someone say that The Hub trolled us yesterday with the encore presentation of The Royal Wedding, but I have to say if you check around it was more the site owners and general public that got into that mind set. We know that Season 3 will be announced about a month before, and that’s about it. Words have been muttered in back rooms aiming towards October 6th, but for now I’d say expect it to be sometime in October. For now, we wait.

Sunday Morning Comics time.

    Really? Re-running a previous episode is considered “trolling” the fanbase and teasing a new season?

    Wow. As much as I really try to appreciate this fandom and being a part of it, it continues to really come across as a bunch of entitled, reactionary whiners getting their drawers in a bunch over nothing, so much of the time.

    Literally not one other fanbase of anything on television would ever overanalyize something as simple and as common as a mere rerun of an episode like this.

    OH MY GOSH IT’S A RERUN, THIS MUST MEAN SO MANY THINGS LIKE THIS THIS AND THIS. THEY ARE TROLLING ME THEY ARE SPECIFICALLY TARGETING ME AND LAUGHING AT ME BY DARING TO SHOW AN EPISODE A SECOND TIME. THIS IS OBVIOUSLY A HASBRO PLOT TO PREY UPON OUR FEARS THAT SEASON 3 WILL NEVER COME EVEN THOUGH WE KNOW FOR A FACT IT’S GETTING HERE, LIKE, SOON.

    Seriously? Who thinks like this? ….actually, I have to admit, it’s this kind of thing, and this specific fandom that blows up and explodes constantly over the most minor of details, as if it’s some kind of unforgivable political scandal all the time, that makes me really kind of sick of being a part of it.

    I don’t know how many times that other Friendship is Magic fans need to be told “It’s just a tv show, you should probably just relax.”, but I’ve officially lost count, already. sigh.

    • Just FYI it was more like “oh haha guess they trolled us” and not “OMG THEY TROLLED US, FLIP ALL THE TABLES AND GET THE TORCHES”.

      The fandom is a galaxy of different minded people, people who do take the entire show and community way too seriously, and those who are just simple animation fans enjoying a show and the community around it.

      I understand what you’re saying about the fandom, but personally your ranting about it is about the same as you thinking people are flipping tables over having no season 3 announcement yesterday.

      As for that, the general think was more or less pushed by ourselves (DHN) and Equestria Daily, more or less hinting at it when we posted about the Canterlot Wedding re-run. We know that they are going to announce Season 3 roughly a month before its going to air, and the fact they were putting some extra energy behind promoting this rerun of A Canterlot Wedding, we figured maybe they were getting people to tune in and were going to play a promotion for Season 3 during the first commercial brake. We were wrong.

      Chill and have some cider. I’d be concerned if this was a random comment and not from our resident conspiracy theorist.

    • Aw, have a hug. *hug*

      Also, what DS said. I was at least one of the people who made that joke, by the way.
