Happy Friday one and all! Hope it's been a good week.

I'm back from vacation and so it's time for full-scale Pinkie Pie comics once again. Because of the early Russian release I'm betting more than a few of you have already seen this episode, as have I. But I'm looking forward to hearing the episode in English.

On the topic of languages, a friend online helped translate Pinkie's dialog. Doubtless there will be folks who want to offer a correction or reinterpretation, but I'm not redoing this comic as with the Polish goodnight a few weeks back. I've done all I can to respect the Russian language, but there has to be a stopping point.

That said, here are Pinkie's lines in English:

1: Hi everypony! Happy brand-new weekend!
2:
I’m in the Everfree Forest today. Which might seem bad, but this place has really mellowed out.
3: (No dialog)
4:
That’s really nice of you, Zecora!
5:
I’m talking Russian in honor of our friends who got to see an early-release.
6:
Again.
7:
I don’t wanna be cranky about it, but this has happened an awful lot.
8:
But that just means some of us get to enjoy the episode in two languages.
9:
So whether you’re seeing it for the first time ever, or the first time in English...
10:
We hope you have a really good night and a fun day tomorrow!
11:
Goodnight, everypony!
12:
Zecora, when did you learn to speak Russian?

Poor, Zecora. :)

Well, you see, Pinkie, Zecora has a great deal of experience with the Everfree, as you well know. That includes learning to talk to some of its denizens, within the limitations of her ability to learn languages. And it so happens that there's a bear around here who emigrated from Russia. So Zecora learned Russian.

I don't mind spoilers, but you're right, this season has been ridiculous with all the leaks and early airings. I guess it's just impossible to avoid those with something as popular as MLP these days.

I'm surprised Zecora didn't rhyme anything with "Again?" XD

Все хорошо! Even though it's not my first language, I'm happy to have some practice today. :D

I saw the new episode it was sad to see the mane six resort to weaponizing cuteness to overthrow the gryphon empire. but can you belive how the dragons burned all of equestria to a barren wasteland because no pony would validate their parking. at least all was saved when the smooze saved the bass after vinyl dropped it.

ohh sorry forgot to say Spoilers! ^^

Zecora cured Pinkie's tiny problem, but resulted in a rather interesting side effect xD

When did YOU learn to speak Russian, Quill?
I took seven semesters and could barely read any of this.
It's an awfully hard language.

In The Cutie Re-Mark, Zecora had no problem whatsoever finding out that her entire existance isn´t meant to be, and even seemed aware of the multiverse theory being more than a theory.
I´d say she doesn´t just brew potions and meals in her cauldron, but also talks to beings from another dimension, sch as herself from another dub of the show.

Серебряное Перо, где ты русскому выучился? :D (Big Grin) 

Ах да, и тебе тоже Споки-Ноки, Пинки ^_^

Don't worry about the russian translation, Quill. I am actually russian, I had good grades when it came to russian grammatics and such, and I can see no errors in Pinkie's phrases. You can sleep easy! And thank you for making these comics, they are always a delight to read.
