The histrionics of the fandom makes no sense, especially since the series ends by completely opening up Equestria for "What if?" Stories, and giving people over twenty years of space to fill in with whatever they want

It’s baffling, to say the least

Phil Vischer might call Hasbro to ask if Big Idea will use G4 of all of the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic characters and all of the Equestria Girls characters.

Why dont we all keep g4 alive eh? I actually havent watvjed the show much bit if we get a boxset with all seasons and shorts and such, ill buy it. I actually wosh eqg wasnt going down too cuz it needs a proper ending. Speaking of endings, i always thpught season 4 had the best finale and if it had ended tjete i would have been happy.

most people use the star trek example though its not quite teh same
star trek the original series was a comercial flop when it first aired, it was quite literaly ahead of its time in many ways…however it went on in syndication after it was aired originaly…and it was during those later runings that it caught stried, found an audience and eventualy, spawned a fandom…so a fandom can not only outlive its base show, it can be born from its ashes, stargate was teh same way, the original movie bombed horibly in theaters, but years later a rabid cult fanbase convinced a then little known tv network to invest in the creation of a tv show based on it….we know it now as stargate sg-1, one of the greatest science fiction series ever to air

the end is just the begining when it comnes to entertainment media, nothing is truely dead till we SAY its dead damnit.

I know what I’m about to say has already been said in so many ways, and said here alone but: This.

I’ve just spent all day getting worried about what’ll happen to anything G4-related once the show’s over, but reading this stuff’s just caused me to realize something —

Urusei Yatsura ended in 1987, the last official work we’ve seen of it was a short OVA from 2012, and it’s considered relatively obscure in North America compared to its home country of Japan. Despite all that, I’m still a fan of both it and Maison Ikkoku. And how did I get to being a fan? Because I have a computer and internet access, both of which allowed me access to all of both shows’ episodes, OVAs, and movies, as well as all of the wonderful fanart and stories that people have (and are still making to this day) of these shows and their characters — some of which I’ve even found here on Derpibooru.

Those anime may be technically ’dead’, but they left a legacy which will undoubtedly continue for the foreseeable future, possibly for generations more to come. My Little Pony as a whole, and Friendship is Magic in particular, will follow suit (heck, FiM might even start getting more fans after G5 comes out and new audiences get curious about what came before it).

Are there some thing I’m a little sad about? Of course. For one I didn’t even bother to really get into it until it was getting ready to end, and second I’m a little anxious over the uncertain fate of Equestria Girls (I hope Boulder Media gets to do something with it, but if we don’t see anything new in the next year or two then it’s safe to assume Equestria Girls is dead). But you know what? It’s never too early, even after the show’s over, because I can always go back any time I like.

The Mane Six will always be around for when we need a nice story or friendship lesson, guys! :D

Farewell G4, you’ve given us an amazing 10 year ride. Your time on Tv may be coming to an end but your presence will live on Forever in the Hearts and work of those you touched and inspired. Your lagacy shall never be forgotten, forever immortalized within us all and the media of course ;) Salute!

The fandom we are part bro. It’s looks like just a few of us really keep forward and want to know the good things to come when the g4 ends.

There are also those so-called fans who automatically believe that everything after season 3 was terrible and believe that MLP should just stay gone forever after the series ends.

Some fans just can’t be satisfied… or just want an excuse to complain.

It’s pretty sad that a lot of people think the generation it’s going to be bad and neither give it a chance considering that it didn’t start yet
