The land of Equestria comes alive like never before with the introduction of My Little Pony: The Manga – A Day In The Life Of Equestria from writer David Lumsdon and mangaka Shiei.

Prepare to see Twilight Sparkle and her friends like you’ve never seen them before: in a 4koma manga! The slice-of-life manga is split into chapters focusing on different ponies and a day in their life. Of course, to say these days are normal is a stretch. Some of the stories include Pinkie Pie getting lost between dimensions, Fluttershy dealing with stage fright, and Applejack’s farm dealing with pests. Then there are some other odd ones such as Rainbow Dash accidentally being cursed, a pony that may or may not be an alien, and the main cast of ponies getting the treatment with classic manga tropes.

Written in the 4koma format, My Little Pony: The Manga – A Day In The Life Of Equestria presents chapter-length stories involving Ponyville’s most well-known citizens. These adventures share the same humor and heart that made the original cartoon, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, both enjoyable and heartwarming. Shiei’s art style is very fitting for the world of Equestria, as the ponies and other creatures are beautifully detailed and fit the manga format. The humor and writing of the manga is also in line for the series. In addition, fans of both My Little Pony and manga will thoroughly enjoy the manga due in large part for the chapter that transports the ponies to a Japanese school.

Seven Seas Entertainment published My Little Pony: The Manga – A Day In The Life Of Equestria in three individual volumes which are all available now. In addition, Seven Seas Entertainment recently released an omnibus for the manga, collecting all three volumes. Mangaka artist Shiei has also done other work for Seven Seas Entertainment such as Amazing Agent Luna and the manga adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.
