Tiers of a Waifu

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is the fourth iteration of the My Little Pony franchise, centered around an animated series created by Lauren Faust. Disappointed in the quality of most shows based on toys for young girls, Faust set out to make a more broadly appealing and relatable show featuring more depth and character variety than the version of My Little Pony she’d grown up with.

The result was a show with likable characters, amusing dialog, and healthy messages of kindness. Its gentle, inclusive, and optimistic tone were quite refreshing and made the show a hit not just with young girls but older and male viewers as well.
