>>26165496 >comic=/=canon aside Cadance is a nickname/shortened/'translated' name. So it doesn't matter how it's spelled, as her name is Mi Amore Cadenza. Arguing how her shortened name is spelled is absolutely fucking retarded.
>>26165574 Show contradicts itself too. In Hasbro's ideal, the comics are part of the story. Whether they fit in perfectly or not, the events in the comics do happen at some point in time or space(maybe an alternate dimension/dimensions).
People need to stop shitting on the comics. They're the closest we'll ever get(aside from fanfics) to more mature related content and suggestive themes. Be grateful we can have a 12 year old boyish version of the story instead of only an 8 year old girly version.
>>26165631 >Show canon = only canon Bullshit. The comics aren't canon to the show, but they have their own canon based on the show. It's also official, so until the show contradicts something from the comics, anything mentioned in the comics(ie a character name or design/character trait) is official and canon for the time being. That isn't headcanon, that's logic. It's even said in that specified pic that the show and the comic are separate, meaning they have different canons.
>The comic isn't canon to the show, but it is official with its own canon.
If you deny the above than you have no idea what canon means or how it works. Hasbro owns MLP, Hasbro has two teams working on MLP stories, therefore 2 canons.
Show canon = everything that happens in the show. Comic canon = everything that happens in the comics. Hasbro/story canon = everything in the series. This board is for MLP, therefore it follows Hasbro canon, so whether or not Celestia fucked Sombre in the show doesn't matter because it happened at one point in another canon-verse.
Inb4fucktards claiming headcanon. Fuck all of you.
They have separate canons, she's talking about the show's canon being a different canon/her canon.
She then goes on to say that they can't even have the comics in the show's canon because they tell a different type of story, you can't go from extremely child friendly to pre-teen style writing then back and expect it to all fall under one category. Nothing there says Comics aren't in Hasbro's ideal.
I do understand you about the DD Books, wasn't thinking of those.
>>26165702 Jesus christ who the fuck even is that guy He shows up on EQD out of fucking nowhere and spams the shitty comics on the poor site Like Jesus christ they have a fanfiction filter, they should put comics into that category or create a new filter entirely
>>26166339 It is long winded, but he has a point towards the end.
Hasbro owns the rights and they have two teams working on the series, therefore that means two different canons. The show staff had the show canon and the comic staff have the comic canon.
If you can't understand something as simple as that, then you really don't know what canon means. It's cool if you say the comics don't follow the show, but to say they aren't canon is a vague as saying Fulttershy is canon, two different canons, anon. A better phrase instead of "hurr, durr, the comics aren't canon." would be "the comics aren't canon to the show."
>>26166542 There is literally no irony here TOPF claimed that Ponko was a communist without anything to support it just like these faggots say that Sunset is a Christian without anything even remotely alluding to that
>>26166405 The main reason I consider EQG more within canon than the comics is because the show staff actually made it. The comics play VERY fast and loose with established continuity and characterization. EQG has some errors too, but more explanation is given and a lot of it can be put down to the series taking place in a different universe. On top of that, the show staff generally try to respect each other's work, while several comic writers have outright said that they don't like the material they're adapting.
>>26167644 >just a prompt It's not just a prompt you fucking idiot; it's a meme that people insist on flooding the catalog with on a daily fucking basis alongside other shitty threads with that retarded vector attached to it. What pisses me off isn't that people want to have some dumbass headcanon, but that they want to consistently create half-assed shitposting threads about it.
>>26167643 Yeah, this got me confused. It seems as if EQG isn't canon within the actual show, which really doesn't make sense. They made it fit nearly perfectly, and the third movie was literally tied into the season 5 finale of the show.
I think the problem is the creators don't understand canon, so in order to keep it simple they just have the show as true canon and state that everything is separate, a vague statement to keep everyone at ease.
Though I can accept if EQG isn't canon. It really takes no toll on the actual story as all of it happens on Human Earth.
