This week’s issue of Fiendship is Magic tells the story of the Sirens, who are the antagonists in The Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks movie. The sirens are three seahorse like creatures that are able to drain energy from ponies by singing. When their usual tricks don’t work they begin to experiment with different sounds. The legendary Starswirl the Bearded is onto them and challenges them to musical battles every night. As a last resort he traps them in a world without magic.
This story had a very different flavor than the previous issues. It was cool learning how the sirens ended up in the world of the Equestria Girls since at the end of Rainbow Rocks they turn into their “pony” form before losing their musical powers. It was also awesome to see Starswirl the Bearded since Twilight Sparkle is constantly referring to him throughout the series. I would have liked to see more of where the Sirens actually came from and where they got their powers but maybe we’ll see more of them in the future.
Check out the latest issue to learn about a whole new batch of equestrian villains and a mysterious hero.
