My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The third season of this magnetic series is nigh, and the fans are even more dedicated than ever. This phenomenon demands inspection. What sort of production alchemy draws adults to a show aimed at very young children? What does a fandom do when there’s no consumer goods aimed at it at all? And what does a grown anime fan do when confronted with the terrifying realization that he may like something that’s always represented the worst dreck of American animation? Join us as we examine the show’s past, present and future, and possibly argue about why Twilight Sparkle is definitely the best pony.

Neil Nadelman

If everybody had to learn Japanese to enjoy anime, the craze would've died out long ago. Fortunately, tireless workers like Neil carefully transpose its exciting exclamations into clear English, allowing you to start reading between the lines and write slash about all the pretty boys! Neil toiled over Area 88, Giant Robo, Slayers, Grave of the Fireflies and literally trillions of other titles, and has guest-lectured at MIT on the topic.
