It's colorful but where is the plot???

I watched a few of the episodes on Discovery Life and a animated "short" of it that came with the My Little Pony 35th Anniversary 2 Movie 4 Disc Blu Ray/DVD combo and all I can say is "where is the story/plot?" It's colorful and Hanazuki literally means "Moon Flower" in Japanese so I was expecting this to be a Japanese anime but it's not. I'm pleasantly surprised that they made the hemka creatures look like bunnies especially since in Japanese mythology there's a strong link between bunnies and the moon like how a person from the West might have heard of the moon being made of cheese or the man on the moon so there IS some Japanese influence here though I am still waiting for any sign of a story line or plot. It's definitely colorful and cutesy but it's disappointing so far because there doesn't seem to be any point to it. And the toys look very expensive from what I have seen... So consumerism could be a big problem for those parents with tight budgets.
