If you think that Japanese are watching only anime, then think again. They are crazy for our little wester ponies! My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, the famous US cartoon series, aired in Japanese on TV Tokyo in 2014. Now the series is getting a Blu-ray Disc box-set on April 26, 2017. The box will include a collection of the best 26 episodes and also a bonus soundtrack CD with the Japanese versions of the songs.
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic takes place in Equestria, a land where unicorns, Pegasuses, and ponies live together. Protagonist Twilight is a diligent female unicorn who loves reading books. One day, she is told by Princess Celestia that she should go out and learn more about ‘the magic of friendship’, rather than just read books. So, Twilight decides to go to a country town called Ponyville with her baby-dragon friend Spike. Of course, Twilight did not at all expect the many troubles she confronts on her journey! This story is about Twilight meeting unique friends and learning what true friendship is about.
The dub boasts a stellar cast of fabulous voice actresses: Miyuki Sawashiro (Twilight Sparkle), Suzuko Mimori (Pinkie Pie), Sora Tokui (Applejack), Mikoi Sasaki (Rarity), Izumi Kitta (Rainbow Dash), Emiri Katou (Fluttershy), Motoko Kumai (Spike), and Kikuko Inoue (Princess Celestia).
The Blu-ray boxset will contain 2 discs including 540 minutes-worth of episodes, plus the clean opening movies (movies without any credits) of ‘Lucky Girl’ and ‘Yume Miru! Shinjiru! Mirai Kanaete! (Dream! Believe! Grab your Future!)’. Also, the boxset will come with a bonus CD including the Japanese versions of the songs in the anime. It is the first time for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic to get released on Blu-ray in Japan, so it will definitely draw the attention of bronies everywhere!
