Discussion

To start things off, Nemesis and Alca7raz talk about the newest comic, Legends of Magic #10! It’s the one where Somnambula shows up. And it has a lot of silly dialogue and whatnot.

After that, it’s a pretty lengthy discussion on a fan favorite character: Princess Luna! Yes, another one of these character-focused episodes. We spend a lot of time looking at her character arc throughout the show. Of course, we also talk a bit about the fandom’s outright embrace of her. And some other things.
