DERPY: "Doc! Doc! There's a claw machine on the Moon."

DR. WHOOVES: "Don't be silly! It's probably just a smudge on the lens."

 

My Review: I didn't initially have high hopes for My Little Pony: The Manga; the quality of such licensed products can be wildly uneven. However, I was delightfully surprised. What we have here is a collection of seven stories and a sketch gallery set in the world of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. We have a nice variety of pony tales by writer David Lumsdon and artist Shiei starring the Mane 6 and Spike, with many supporting characters such as Princess Celestia, Dr. Whooves, Derpy, the Cutie Mark Crusaders, Flim & Flam, Zecora, and Discord. The art is extremely cute, obviously based on the style of the show, but even more manga-fied. The slice-of-life stories are clearly told and simple enough (mostly) for a young child to follow. I would rate this as age 7 and up. Recommended.

 

Volume 2 is scheduled to be released on April 7, 2020 according to Amazon.com.
