Filly Funtasia Episode 6: "Dream of Doom" - Discussion


What a day!

This is the first out of the many episode discussion posts. Please use the comment section below to share your opinions on episode 6: Dream of Doom!

And remember, no episode links!

Turns Out Dracco Does Want a Fandom

Oh, hello. Many of you probably read my first article about the YouTube takedowns and my second (excessively angry) article about the further takedowns. Well, hopefully the situation will now be resolved.

Filly Funtasia Episode 6 to Air 5 Minutes Early


Heads up! The Monday episode of Filly Funtasia is scheduled to air 5 minutes early, and finish airing 5 minutes later, for the combined change in length of 10 minutes.

The rest of the schedule does not have this change, Filly Funtasia will continue to air normally starting with episode 7 on Tuesday.

There is no known reason for this change. The episode could be an adaptation of one of the specials. Or its air time could be filled with ads. Either way, adjust your filly watching time accordingly!


And remember, it's 5 minutes early this Monday!

Apparently Dracco Doesn't Want a Fandom

EDIT: Please refer to the latest article on this topic.

Dracco has recently gone from not interfering with YouTube at all to issuing copyright strikes to almost every single video on YouTube with "Filly Funtasia" in the title, impressively establishing themselves as one of the most dracconian abusers of YouTube's copyright system in almost no time at all.

Following up on the limited scattershot on a few videos from a few days ago, the lads at Dracco have productively spent their Saturday systematically purging YouTube of any kind of Filly Funtasia-related fan content.

Here's a short non-exhaustive list of content that was recently taken down. If your Filly Funtasia-related video was taken down and is not in this list, please let us know in the comments.

Filly Funtasia Episodic Streaming

Heyo! Now when the initial shock of actually seeing the show has mostly passed, the infrastructure for accessing and watching the show has begun to solidify. One of the more juicy elements of it is a channel that livestreams Funtasia episodes as they air.

You can tune in on every weekday at 6:30 PM CET (also known as 13:30 PM EST, 12:30 PM CST, and a whole bunch of other times in different timezones) through the link here:

Have fun watching! Kappa //

The Copyright Takedowns Begin

We have our first copyright takedowns! No, it's not takedowns of the episode uploads that have popped up on YouTube. Instead, they have chosen to take down the upload of the TV spot I put on my channel and two old fan videos on Zejgar's channel.

Filly Funtasia to Air in Italy on the 11th of March at 18:30


Yes, it has been narrowed down to a minute.

In a sudden move, the Italian channel Frisbee has scheduled to air the first episode of Filly Funtasia on the eleventh of March at 18:30 local time, as well as the second episode on the following day, according to the information found on the Sky Italia TV website.


Furthermore, Filly Funtasia has received its own accommodating 15 seconds long TV spot on Frisbee, which airs regularly!


The TV spot features clips we've already seen in the promotional material throughout these long years of waiting, though almost every clip has been extended by a few frames, a few seconds, or even by whole additional shots. The clips seem to originate from episodes including Liar Liar, Prance on Fire, Wranglum Does Fillying, the Blue Rainbow episode, as well as what may be the series' opening sequence.


At the time of writing, the official Frisbee website does not have a schedule for the 11th of March, as the date is too far away. However, it is expected to appear there by the 5th. An update will be made once it happens.

UPDATE: the official Frisbee website has added the 11th of March to its schedule, and Filly Funtasia is indeed listed there.



Until then!

A wholehearted "thank you" to Aurelicornus and his amico for unearthing this information in time.

Funtasia Daily Five Year Anniversary

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Oh, hello! It’s been a bit quiet around here for the last year, but we’re still here. That’s mainly because for the majority of the year, there has been little to report on besides some vaguely promising interviews and a surprise award nomination.

Filly Funtasia Episode Nominated at the Asia-Pacific Film Festival

In a bit of unexpected news, the Filly Funtasia episode “The Missing Student” has been nominated in the “Best Animation” category of the 58th Asia-Pacific Film Festival, which will be held on the 1st of September in Taipei, Taiwan.

(EDIT: Turns out we lost! "Fundamental" was the winner of the category.)

The episode in question, in case you don’t remember, is the one with the blue rainbow and the scene where Rose, Fabian and Zack walk through a cave. The fourth promo consists entirely of a long scene from this episode. You can also see snippets of the episode in the third and fifth promos, and we have also been able to see concept art from the episode in art posts.



Filly Funtasia’s competitors are “Funtamental” from Taiwan, and “Adi Sopo Jarwo” from Indonesia. The first one appears to be a short chaotic one minute video with an anti-religious message (I think? It’s not entirely clear what’s going on) while Adi Sopo Jarwo is also a 3D cartoon. Both are embedded below if you want to check out the competition.





We should find out if Filly Funtasia is Taiwan’s number one in a couple of days from the posting of this article, and then we’ll hopefully be able to write an update about Filly Funtasia winning awards even before its release.

Dracco Sells UK Branch

In another piece of news about the companies involved in Filly Funtasia, Dracco has sold its UK branch, Dracco UK, a company which primarily functioned as a toy distributor for non-Dracco toys.

The enterprise in question began as a UK toy distributor called The In Thing. In 2011, Dracco acquired 50% of the company and in 2014, Dracco bought the remainder of the company, redirecting its former website, theinthing.com, to dracco.co.uk.

On the 16th of July, Dracco officially sold Dracco UK to Cathryn Dunstan, who is a member of their management team. The company was renamed Bliss Distribution Ltd, and dracco.co.uk now redirects to blissdistribution.co.uk.

Dracco UK never actually sold any Dracco properties from what we know, and indeed sold the properties of their main competitors. According to an interview in Toyworld Magazine, Dracco co-founder Henrik Andersen says: "The sale supports Dracco’s strategy to focus on its core business and increase our investments in brand development and global sales of our Dracco branded product range.".

While not mentioning Filly by name, this is a vaguely encouraging sign for the franchise’s future considering how Filly is currently Dracco's main property and thus the likely target of a focus on Dracco's brand development.
