Animation is always good, yet the writing with the Crystal kingdom are was great and had a lot of potential. What happened? Also,I can't do a close up of the "It's exactly what it looks like..." post you did. Can you fix that?
The Crystal Empire episodes were the only ones i liked out of this season. The writers lost touch with the original value of the show. Plus, the writing doesn't make sense in certain episodes, nor does it emphasize the character's intentions clearly. I had to watch the episode twice to understand that Twilight was upset because she wasn't the one who actually, physically reclaimed the Crystal heart. which that in itself is an unrealistic reason to be disappointed over.
You can't zoom in further because that's the largest size I've posted. no way am I going to spoil people with a larger preview.
How could they lose that sight? How can the writing DEGRADE? It suppose to get better! Don't they read over what they write? Also, would Twilight becoming an Alicorn ruin the show? That's what I hear. Also, I like your non-spoiler methods!
