I haven’t finished chapter 2 yet. I only watched 4 out of the 8 episodes this “chapter” has, but I will say this: Sunny Starscout is the main character that has much more potential than any main character ever had in the franchise.
When I watched Ali-conned, I was really afraid that someone with a solid integrity like Sunny would become greedy because why not, especially when the villain tried to manipulate her. However, I ended up respecting her much more after seeing her that the root of her alicorn powers is actually helping other ponies, which kinda fits with her personality and debunks the plans of the villain. It reminds me a lot of the ending of Crusaders of the Lost Mark in a sense, particularly in the faith of the CMC.
There are a couple of things in Make your Mark I’m not into, but when it comes to the main character, it’s basically 10/10.
