I don't understand this. Why would guys even be there? Why are there far more guys there than girls? My Little Pony was the Twilight to our He-Men & Transformers. Maybe the theory of modern men being feminized by the media is true. :confused:

I don't understand the appeal but I'm not gonna make fun of them. I go to Comic Con every year and someone could say the same about me.

I think it's more of a rampant childishness. The internet has a good sense of irony, and shows like mlp seem to latch on when you have a large group of adults watching (with amusement, I'm sure) a show aimed at younger audiences. Most of the mlp things I see reference nazi reich allusions in the large princess horse who rules the kingdom, murderous insanity in some of the characters, rumors of a lesbian character, zebra racism, puzzlement over how animals without hands could build houses, and other good-natured ribbing. It's like a silent mystery science theater 3000. I figure most of the older male fans get a kick out of misinterpreting the innocence of children's shows. It's not my cup of tea, but I have done the same thing with some anime shows or manga aimed at younger audiences than myself.

Didn't the same thing happen with spongebob squarepants?

I would guess people have a mocking sorta affinity for the show. I don't know how seriously the audience takes it.

This is like a bad joke that's been carried way too far.

Maybe all the guys at the convention have daughters and they are really supportive of their interests. [/yeah I know]

Except to those people I really don't think it is a joke. They actually take it seriously and I just feel sorry for them.

Well there is alot of adults and children who like to dress up in character form

Plus there is a club at the local uni in melbourne where they watch anieme cartoons

Some of the people there can range from 18yrs to people in there thirtys

This convention is real because it was advertised on tv
