• Nightly Roundup #847

    So how about we get back to more obscure ponies (and griffons, and dragons, etc) for headers, eh? After seeing all these Wind Waker style ponies I really am interested in what a pony version would look like. Might be interesting!

    News time folks, check it after the break.

    Pony DVDs and Comics in Hungary?

    In order not to botch this up completely, have the copy paste that came with the email. Hopefully it all works out for our Hungarian pony fans.

    In the past few days some interesting things have happened here in Hungary.
    First if all, Hasbro has decided, that it would try and invest in a possible hungarian release of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, both the animated and the comic series, as well as the spin-off movie, Equestria Girls. They have contacted JCS Media, a hungarian publisher, about this projekt, and the JCS staff decided to ask the growing fandom of this small country about their ideas on the topic.
    A similar hungarian website, called Hunbrony (link: http://hunbrony.blogspot.hu/), was e-maild by their representative, to make a suvey with their users about questions on how succesfull these releases would be, how frequently should they arrive, what language, subtitle, etc. should get published on the discs, and other questions along those lines.
    The series has been airing on television, on a channel called Minimax (link: http//www.minimax.hu/) and TV2 (http://www.tv2.hu/), since late 2011, with the 3rd season released only a few days ago.
    There has been a divide in local bronyhood considering the hungarian dubbing, because some of the hungarian voices hardly resemble the voices of the origial cast, or doesn't sound like them at all, with issues like Derpy being voiced by a man. Still, Hasbro wants to keep the continuity in voices, so no re-dubing will be possible.
    Considering these facts, one of the most important questions in the survey has been the inclusion of the original english audio, and with that a hungarian subtitle as well, on the discs, which would be a lot of work for JCS, considering that they have plans to release the first 3 seasons simultaneously, with a total of 16 DVDs (3-4 episodes/disc), even considering a 2 piece special collector's casing release for the fans, as soon as the end of February/March.

    Awesome Stream to Help a Brony!

    Hello there! Do you like art? Do you like video games? Do you like pony toys? Do you like fanfics? What if I tell you that there is going to be a Fundraising stream that will go on for over 24 hours where you can get any or all of these with your donation?
    Pony artist James Corck and his family have been hit by the freight train of the Spanish banks and are now up to their necks in debt. They have to pay off four banks or else they are going to be in trouble, and there is nothing more depressing then spending Christmas time in trouble, is it not?
    But you can do something to help them out and get something in return!
    On Saturday the 14th there will be a 24+ hours stream during which James will draw art for those who donate and give away prizes like Steam games, art and fanfics by other artists, and lots of pony toys.

    There will be community guests coming over like Norman Sanzo from the MBS Show, Chef Sandy from Bronyville, Sketchy Sounds from Everfree Network, exceptionally British classicist Foal Papers, traditional animator Pika Petey, voice actor and YouTuber Mindless Gonzo, The team behind Ask Britannia, YouTuber Cobaltsky and maybe more!
    Our goal is to, at least, reach 1000$ in funded money, and what you get in exchange is a lot of pony art, and lots and lots of pony toys!

    Dates: 14th of December onwards.
    Starting Time: 4 am EST (9 am GMT + 0)
    Running Time: 24+ Hours
    Set Goal: 1000$
    Place for the Stream: http://www.livestream.com/jamescorckstreams?t=984834
