Manliness by KaizenWerx Manliness by KaizenWerx
Sometimes I can't help but feel a little strange about being a guy who likes My Little Pony. Is it just me?

Allow me to clarify something: No one loves being a brony more than I. I made this only to poke fun at myself(and maybe Big Macintosh). Most people got that this was a work of humor, but I've still had to repeat this a dozen times since I made it. I greatly appreciate so many people sharing their thoughts and opinions, but the misunderstandings have become a bit tiresome. ^^;

So please, view this drawing as I had entended - for everyone to have a laugh. =)

I'm a 21 year old male college student who not only likes the show, but also does artwork and fanfiction.

And yet...I was a football player (defensive end) in high school and I'm tall (6'3). The thought of a big guy like me getting all excited over new My Little Pony episodes is both unusual and hilarious. So the feeling is mutual, my brony brother. The feeling is definitely mutual. haha

Haha cool, thanks for sharing. I've heard a lot of people say something like "a year ago I never would have imagined I'd be watching a show about candy-colored ponies", much less making fanfics/artwork. The show can convert just about anybody it seems =)

Probably shared too much. *shrugs*

But I think a lot of it has to do with whether you like cartoons or not. I've noticed that guys who like cartoons or at least appreciate them and their form of media tend to be fans of MLP. When I got into ponies, I started with an appreciation for the art style and animation. It wasn't until I started watching a few episodes did I realize I was really liking the show in general. It really is infectious, though.

I thought you shared just enough :XD:

Yeah, I think you're right. I immediately liked the art style and thought it was partially inspired by anime, something I've followed my whole life. So I was already pretty used to cuteness and the like, but even ponies seemed like a bit too much for me to get into. But now it doesn't bother me. It's just plain old goodness in a cute package!

It reminds me like a mix of aspects of what made cartoons awesome. For me, the 90's and the early 2000's had the best cartoons and MLP:FIM seems to have captured what made many of them awesome with their style and characters. Take Pinkie for example. She is a living Looney Tunes reference with her jokes, defying of physics, and even her Pepe le Pew bounce. It's the little things that makes it work.

And then there's the cuteness. Just.....heart-melting. Came for the art style and stayed for the daaawwwww's. LOL

I try to put the "appeal" of the show into words all of the time but I always fall short. But you can do it very nicely, and I agree with all of that =D The show is chock full of an attention to detail and an earnestness that I've never really found in another cartoon, or any other TV show before.

And of course, the unbearable cuteness doesn't hurt either :dummy:

Well I've been an anime fan for more than half of my life, so I guess I was already used to cuteness when I became a brony. And everyone is a little crazy, so it's fine. =)
