Discussion

To start things off, Nemesis and Alca7raz have two comics to review! First, it’s Friends Forever #36. The one about Rainbow Dash and Soarin. Alca7raz was dreading this one. But is it good? That’s the question. The other issue is Friendship is Magic #50! It’s a milestone issue, and the end of the most recent arc. And, well… they weren’t thrilled with this issue. They’ll go over what the problem is.

After that, they come to their main discussion. Sunset Shimmer. They’ve looked at other characters, it’s time to do it again in a positive light. They mostly focus on Sunset in the first Equestria Girls, The “The Fall of Sunset Shimmer” comic, and Rainbow Rocks. Basically, how did the fandom react to her initially? And what made her tick? They also compare her to Twilight! Kind of the obvious comparison really. The thing is, they didn’t get to everything they wanted to talk about, so we may revisit this topic in the future.
