Flop it to the princess
@Latecomer

I like the evolution of the art; from cloned swarms of identical bg characters in S1 before they knew the show was gonna take off, to having some really unique and detailed characters eventually, for one. Also I remember the huge excitement over the flowing animation from the S3 preview with Twilight's mane billowing in the breeze, an animation fluidity and quality that'd rapidly become commonplace. I chalk it up more to the show's artists getting more experience the longer they animated more than anything.

Still, I do miss the writers that were there from the start. We got Songco/Lewis and Berrow eventually so it's not all bad but that may be why we started getting consistently bad episodes later on when the writing team was a revolving door.

Yeah that's pretty much the way I have to look at it, being given the role to grow up into it instead of being something she got when she 'graduated' more or less

It's why I don't like ranking seasons against each other since the individual episodes mean more than the overall season they're in especially later on; like, I'll have a favorite and least favorite season if pressed, but I much prefer favorite individual episodes. I get that seasons have some overarching theme (The keys in S4, Starlight in S5, etc) but unless the favorite episode is directly applicable to the seasonal theme it doesn't really matter that much what season the episode is in

I think for me it's both, but I suppose I can't tell unless I try.

And yeah, the show's standalone nature means "good/bad episodes" and "good/bad seasons" aren't so tightly coupled. I formed my opinions on each season after watching it, I guess.

She'd learned enough by that point to take a pupil under her wing so that's pretty fair. Definitely had a few things to learn but enough to probably earn the title as opposed to back in S3

You asked what made June last year special. Sure, there's an all year normal background noise, but as staff here on the site said the volume of attacks starting in late May broke shit. Then BLM happened. Then The Atlantic article happened. It's not like all of that happened in an utter void completely and entirely driven by what you call SJWs from Twitter.

I think it's worth revisiting to be able to tell if a lot of the remembered magic is due to objective quality or the feeling around the fandom at the time, but for me it's the latter.

I will say that looking at season episode lists (I honestly forget what ep is in what season post S3, as I was way more unhealthily obsessed prior to that) has made me realize just how many bad episodes were in later seasons, but still, in retrospect even taking out the burnout factor there's nothing I'd rank super high nor something I'd rank super low.

If I'm in the mood to watch an episode I'd want to watch one I rank pretty highly, so I more of less rank seasons by which seasons have more eps that I rank highly as opposed to the percentage of good episodes. I have more faves in S7 than any other season and none of my top faves are in S1 or 6 so those probably are near the bottom.

Goes to show ranking is really subjective I guess, everyone's mileage may vary
