This image is too perfect not to use again
Extra Note: There was a rumor floating around, primarily on Reddit (and consequently the submit box) about the duration of this episode being an hour long. The Hub has confirmed that it is the normal duration.
Little, Brown books has sent over a full press release for the upcoming My Little Pony books in Spring of next year. As you can see from the images, we have some beyond interesting stuff on the way, especially that Under the Sparkling Sea book up above. While the art style appears to be different than what we are used to, that definitely a seapony. Have a synopsis for it:
Celebrated artist Mary Jane Begin introduces fans to a brand-new land in the world of MY LITTLE PONY – the underwater city of Aquastria, ruled by KING LEO. When TWILIGHT SPARKLE receives an invitation to visit the underwater world, she invites all her pony friends and SPIKE to travel with her. Together, they learn of the long-held rivalry between the seaponies and the mermares, and must navigate the oceanic world, confront danger, make new friends, and race to the finish in this adventure that takes place in a shimmering new MY LITTLEPONY world that has never been seen before!And along with that, the Crystal Heart Spell appears to be an ongoing brand new story that will jump from pony to pony across multiple books. And the synopsis:
TWILIGHT SPARKLE AND THE CRYSTAL HEART SPELL is the first book in a brand new chapter book series. Each book will feature a different pony character and an original story that ties in with events in the MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC, animated television series. Books will be released every three months and will feature bonus activity pagesWe also have a bit of expansion on Meet the Ponies and Welcome to Equestria:
In MEET THE PONIES OF PONYVILLE, a Level 1 Reader (part of Little, Brown Books for Young Readers’ leveled reading program, Passport to Reading), the youngest of pony readers can read all about their favorite characters
WELCOME TO EQUESTRIA is a four-color illustrated storybook that explores all of Equestria, from Ponyville to Canterlot ($3.99 / Ages 4-8).And finally, the guidebook:
And perhaps one of the most anticipated releases for Pony fans of all ages is MY LITTLE PONY: THE ELEMENTS OF HARMONY (“THE FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC” OFFICIAL GUIDEBOOK), which includes extensive character bios, a complete episode guide and a map of Equestria, which will appear in print for the first time. Don't miss the complete lyrics to all the songs, a guide to the friendship lessons TWILIGHT SPARKLE and her friends have learned, and get Pony Words of Wisdom – so you can live your life in harmony with all other creatures ($14.99 / Ages 12 & up).I'm just going to assume these will see huge expansion if we support them similar to the way we absorbed the comics. Next year is going to be crazy!
Head on down past the break for the full press release.
And just in case you arent in the mood for symphonic rock, Silva Hound and Rina Chan teamed up for this excellent electronic track. Rina's vocal bits competing with the heavy sections provides a great contrast. Check it out below!
Are you ready for some rock? Cause this fandom doesn't produce nearly enough rock. This almost reminds me of Dragonforce or Rhapsody, so much POWER. I'm gonna go slay dragons and save the Crystal Empire now.

Description: I, The Great and Powerful Trixie, have been reduced to performing magic tricks in a Trottingham tavern. One would think I'd never sink this low, but it's not as bad as it could be. The food is good, the beds are soft, and the company plentiful. The only problem? I'm stuck here until I earn enough bits to buy another caravan so I can get back on the road where I belong.In A Tavern, Down By The River
So imagine my delight when one evening, a conpony walks through the door and starts cheating at cards. It was a golden opportunity: a chance to line my purse, play the heroine, and teach an amateur magician a thing or two about misdirection.
I had a perfect plan. My only mistake was getting a friend involved.
