How to participate in the liveblog chat: Option 1: Whenever you watch the episode, comment on this post as you watch with whatever responses you feel like posting! Option 2: Go to http://webchat.freenode.net/. Enter a nickname, then for the Channels field enter ##rabbitcube, and finally fill in the Captcha and hit Connect! We’ll be watching Sailor Moon Crystal and commenting there starting at 1:00 p.m. EST. We will then be watching MLP at 1:30. Those are both one hour earlier than normal.
Finally updated this with my own liveblog! See it behind the cut!
01[11:29] <Froborr> Okay.
01[11:30] <Froborr> Gonna start with MLP from two weeks ago, arbitrarily.
01[11:30] <Froborr> Oh, I am liking this premise.
01[11:32] <Froborr> Oh hey, Twilight’s house from the first epiosde.
01[11:32] <Froborr> This is a cute callback.
01[11:33] <Froborr> PLEASE tell me Lyra is going to get to say something about Twilight not even noticing that she moved to Ponyville too.
01[11:34] <Froborr> I’m really feeling Twilight’s dilemma, I’m TERRIBLE at keeping up with old friends and I often feel guilty about it.
01[11:36] <Froborr> I’m trying to remember the psychological principle at play here.
01[11:37] <Froborr> OMG chibi-Twilight!
01[11:38] <Froborr> Ah, Moondancer is another failed Twilight, like Trixie or Sunset Shimmer.
01[11:41] <Froborr> Illusion of transparency, that was it! The–
01[11:41] <Froborr> Oh my god, Twilight appearing in the book was the BEST!
01[11:42] <Froborr> Ahh, so they bond over studying.
01[11:44] <Froborr> This dinner is painfully awkward.
01[11:45] <Froborr> Anyway, illusion of transparency is the tendency to assume that other people are more perceptive about us than they actually are. For example, that when we screw up they immediately notice.
01[11:46] <Froborr> Ah, of course, bring Pinkie Pie to recreate the party.
01[11:46] <Froborr> Of COURSE Pinkie and Minuet are already friends.
01[11:48] <Froborr> Aw, poor Moondancer.
01[11:50] <Froborr> That was a very cute, sweet episode. I liked it.
01[11:53] <Froborr> On to Sailor Moon!
01[11:53] <Froborr> Ah, right, Demande decided to suicide-bomb everything.
01[11:55] <Froborr> Ah, Pluto to the rescue!
01[11:56] <Froborr> This feels appropriate what with the recent new images of Pluto’s surface and all.
01[11:56] <Froborr> Okay wait, why is future!Tux able to move with time stopped?
01[11:57] <Froborr> Oh, she can selectively unstop it for people, that makes more sense.
01[11:57] <Froborr> Wait, why did she release Chibi-Usa?
01[11:59] <Froborr> Aww, I liked Pluto. I’m going to assume that she’s not going to stay dead.
01[12:00] <Froborr> Summon Kitten! Best spell ever.
01[12:03] <Froborr> So yes, mourning her friend break Chibi-Usa’s brainwashing power of love etc
01[12:04] <Froborr> Wait, is that a THIRD legendary crystal?
01[12:04] <Froborr> The question is, does Chibi-Usa return to child form or a non-evil adult form?
01[12:04] <Froborr> Ah, child form AND Sailor transformation. Cool.
01[12:06] <Froborr> Aw, future-Tux looks so proud.
01[12:06] <Froborr> Uh-oh, Usagi’s PISSED.
01[12:07] <Froborr> Shit’s about to go down.
01[12:07] <Froborr> Okay, there are DEFINITELY pink streaks in her hair now.
01[12:10] <Froborr> Wait, what?
01[12:10] <Froborr> I was not expecting them to blow up Nemesis until NEXT episode!
01[12:11] <Froborr> Ah, there we go. see, this is the problem with villains betraying their allies. Sure, it’s funny, but then they go and join the heroes, and it’s a pain in the butt.
01[12:14] <Froborr> So, they’re dragged into the darkess, and somehow Chibi-Usa busts them out.
01[12:14] <Froborr> I keep forgetting the characters haven’t already figured out that he’s Death Phantom.
01[12:15] <Froborr> …Is that the same voice actor as the Anti-Spiral King?
