About the ShowEdit


The series is set in an alternate universe in Japan and the series has a similarity to both Stan Lee's Heroman and Atomic Betty X Total Drama: Slash Prime. The character designs is made by Shigeto Koyama and the ponies' design are made by Yoh Yoshinari and animated by Sunrise and A-1 Pictures. This is the first time a member of the new animation studio Trigger were involved in the anime that wasn't animated by Trigger since Atsushi Nishigori worked with them on Episode 17 of the IDOLM@STER anime series (animated by A-1 Pictures) and some of who worked in Gainax until 2011 was a bit involved in the key animation for Gundam made by Bandai and Sunrise. This is also the first anime to have the characters from the controversial spin-off movie, My Little Pony: Equestria Girls as well as making the HPCS/Uprising formula, as in including 3 Spikes. (a dragon, a dog and a human) The music will have a feel of both Gintama and Basquash! mixing with Madoka Magica and Tsubasa Chronicle as both the music group Audio Highs and female composer Yuki Kajiura compose the series. As the Spanish Dub will go, instead of being dubbed in Mexican, it's dubbed in Argentina due to recent Sony Pictures films and the Marvel Anime project. Hajime Kamegaki (known for Sonic X and Air Gear, and worked in the Harmony Unleashed SD series) will direct the series.


Months since the japanese dub of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic was released on TV, thanks to Takara Tomy's new rival company, Bushiroad and the Dreams Come True group, A young 14-year-old Japanese brony named Yosuke Morikawa who knew about the fandom after her older sister, Kanade Morikawa (which she liked Friendship Is Magic before being Japanese dubbed and grew up with the My Little Pony series when she was little) forced him to watched the English version of Friendship Is Magic, but liking it before the release of the Japanese dub, was living a normal life while being on the internet, or with their families and friends. Until one fateful day, Spirit Brony Resistance leader Aaron, called him out and considered him as the first brony to know and like about My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and its fanbase, fanworks and other stuff worldwide by bronies before Japan brought it back, and wants Yosuke to join the Spirit Brony Resistance as a Japanese leader of Japan to save Equestria from monsters and forces of evil while trying to make the haters ignore the Ponies and respect women in the real world. After that, the six ponies arrived to Earth as both had incarnations as Canon Human Ponidoxes of both Friendship Is Magic and Equestria Girls, even Spike, for which he is a dragon, a young adult human and ironically, a green furred puppy. Now, when a new evil master known as Primer Cross tries to destroy everything on his way, and Yosuke gaining a new gem gaining him powers and attached to his hand called the Sorcery Striker, leading him to fight enemies and monsters, They gained a headquarters known as the Equestrian Trinity Alliance to fight evil and protect both Equestria and Earth.
