My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is not particularly an anime, but does have similar notations of an anime stylistic appeal. For this reason, the topic of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has been the chosen topic for this article.
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is a G4 edition of the My Little Pony cartoon that has been in production since the 1980s. Evolved from G1 and G3 MLP Twilight Sparkle, the unicorn, Rainbow Dash, the pegasus, Rarity, the unicorn, Apple Jack, the earth pony, Fluttershy, the pegasus, and Pinkie Pie, the earth pony come to life in a magical way that was not seen in previous generations.
Twilight Sparkle, a possible descendent of Twilight from the G1 era is the main character of the MLP: FIM series. The only unicorn to with hold in her as much magic as Princess Celestia, the alicorn and ruler of Equestria, if not more.
As the student of Princess Celestia, Twilight Sparkle's job was to seek out and learn the magic that comes from friendship. Shortly after, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, and Apple Jack become Princess Celestia's students under learning what friendship is all about.
Through good times and bad times and adventures on dangerous missions, the six friends learn about friendship the same way an astronomer might learn about the functions of stars. The value of friendship is the magic of friendship itself, and it's up to all six ponies to learn the value thereof.
Most of the MLP: FIM centers on Twilight Sparkle as she often takes the lead of most episodes with her logical reasoning, her leadership, and her ability and talents to use magic to make things better, and to save Equestria from evil.
The elements of harmony, a set of magical artifacts containing the six elements of friendship is the key reminder at just how important their friendship is and represents generosity, loyalty, kindness, honesty, laughter, and magic.
This anime-like cartoon is a recommendable one because of the lessons taught by the characters as they learn about helping one another, what lying can do, and what can happen if you don't stand up for what you believe in.
At present there are three seasons of MLP: FIM with a fourth currently in production.
