Finally completed woo-hoo!! I suggest watching this in a dark lit room with sound The first slate translates to: Friendship is magic, Chapter 25, Party of One. :troll: Interesting thing to note is that the word Magic in Kanji can be directly translated as demonic arts(魔法). So....Friendship is demonic?
The pink haired white pony near the end is young Celestia, I set it as though she sacrificed her immortality to "help" Twilight as does the anime with Hanyu. I decided to do this crossover after seeing Cupcakes as both deal with torture and death. There are also a couple more similarities I found between Higurashi no naku koro ni and MLP which also made me do this crossover are:
1. both having seemingly cute and adorable style at first glance, but something awesome and mind-blowing that doesn't conform to the initial style lies underneath.
2. the duo personalities some of the characters displays.
3. Twilight and Rika both have purple hued hair and possess some sort of time/ dimension traveling magic and a long-time friend to a Goddess.
4. Pinkie and Rena have extremely excitable personality but snaps at a moment's notice if pushed to the edge.
5. Fluttershy and Shion are quiet and meek normally but turns into a yandere in situations.
6. AppleJack and Mion are tomboyish in nature but still has a feminine side. Tsundere~
7. Rainbow Dash and Keiichi, well, they are the victim in the anime and Cupcakes
From all of us here at SFS, we're wishing you a Happy Halloween and Nightmare Night! (It was one year ago today that Luna made her reappearance on the show.)
Song is Daylight's End. You may recognize it as the theme for Diana (League of Legends) during her launch week. You can get the song here: [link]
Thanks to Shadeoses and HC for rendering and vector assistance.
I'd like to give a shout out as well to *spiritto and ~Lionheartcartoon (the team behind Children of the Night) for some intuitive help on their blog, [link] You'll notice this drew a bit of inspiration from their work. I've wanted to animate something with Luna involving Daylight's End the moment I heard it. This was my first time working so heavily with After Effects. The end result not only produced one of my favorite works to date, but also (with help from HC, one of our top vector and effects artists) granted me a lot of experience with After Effects, and Illustrator. Snowdrop is still underway, and can be expected to have similar levels of visual aesthetic.
Also... Hot damn! 2000 watchers! Consider this my milestone submission.

Kinetic Typography about "Baking Cupcakes" - MLP: Friendship Is Magic It's my second animation. In my opinion it's pretty good !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Better quality 720p on my YouTube!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - [link]
EDIT: If DA's being weird, you can watch it on my youtube channel here: [link]
I was inspired to make this short animation after some of the comments I received on "She's Just Being Pinkie Pie" Lot's of people were saying they would be really excited if Pinkie Pie popped out of their computer monitor! I got to thinking, and, to be honest, that would scare the crap out of me! ( I'd get over it soon enough though, and then... PARTY TIME!!!! )
So as y'all may know, My brother and I collaborated from opposite sides of the world via skype and 4 shared to bring you this new glich/electro song! Hope you like!
(Brownie points if you can guess the acronym "PIRL" )
