Fuck, I cried a lil seeing the chapter cover.
“Two?!” Whaddya mean by two? HEY CLARIFY THE UNIT FIRST. HOLY SHIT THE CURIOSITY!!!!!!
Also lol, wearing sukumizu to diplomatic negotiations.
You know what, I am sick of moralfags looking down on people because they read scanlations online. More than 60% of scanlations probably don’t have even have an English market, and the English market wouldn’t even have existed if not for scanlations.
I am sick of moralfags preaching about buying original merchandise of a certain area when they themselves pirate almost everything else. Then they also look down on people for reading scanlations online.
I am sick of the whole “TEH INDUSTRY IS DYING BECUZ PEOPLE STEAL STUFF FROM THE INTERWEBS!” gospel. God knows the industry wouldn’t have actually come this far without the Internet acting as a catalyst to spread it further.
I am sick of outdated Intellectual Property laws that seem to protect the creators but are actually used to enrich the rights-holders (in many cases the recording/publishing/production company) without ACTUALLY fairly giving the REAL creators their share.
I am sick of the moralfags that just pretty much act like asses just because their buying power is greater than people in third world countries without any regard for how much inequalities exist in the world economy.
Fuck all these. I do and will continue to buy original merchandise that I deem worthy enough to justify the enormous expense. Otherwise I am quite comfortable with reading scanlations and watching fansubs/raws as they come off the Internet. If there’s anything really good, then I WILL SUPPORT THE FUCKING INDUSTRY EVEN IF IT’S GOING TO COST ME HALF A MONTH’S WORTH OF LUNCH MONEY. I’m not just gonna crawl under a fucking rock just because I don’t have enough money to BUY EVERY FUCKING CONTENT I CONSUME.
Otherwise, fuck off and get the fuck off your fucking high horse before you start preaching about SUPPORTING THE FUCKING INDUSTRY. Are you even sure you’re not consuming any illegal content at all? Think about it, moralfags.
It took me an hour to finish watching this episode thanks to that.
Finished it all! I guess my decision to marathon the whole thing when it finishes was the right idea. Everything felt more intense compared to watching weekly, especially when the storyline’s on a railroad.
Not saying it’s a bad thing, in fact, FMA:B really does the manga justice. It pretty much felt like the manga coming to life and just shows how good the story was. Couldn’t stop my sniffling at the “Promised Day” arc, especially whenever someone dies.
One thing you have to love about the animated version is how it brings everything to life. Winry sure did grew up healthy, XD. Man she just exuded raw sex appeal just by being on-screen in some episodes. One of the drawbacks was some iffy animation during the action scenes though, but nothing going to full QUALITY levels thankfully.
King Bradley/Wrath is probably my most respected character of the series though, given his setting, skills and the way he dies. Somehow, despite being the bad guy, I just can’t help but to admire him a lot. Anime sure did him good justice too.
Noticed that the final episode differed a little from the manga chapter, but it’s actually good because they complemented each other. Hohenheim’s death was a lot sadder in the anime, but the manga version of Ed’s confession to Winry is better by a little bit. Still, it did great justice to the series.
There’s also the movie upcoming soon, but no plot details have been revealed so far. I just hope it’s not a compilation movie… maybe they might even do a trilogy of it like Kiddy Grade, lol. My hope would be it focusing on some of the side-stories/novels or maybe even a fully new plot to extend what happens during the Elric Brothers’ adventures to the east and west. That would be nice :).
Liked: Yes, did proper justice to the manga.
Rewatch: Iffy, because it’s quite long, maybe a few years down the road XD.
Let me show you the undeniable proof that Asobi ni Ikuyo! is, hands-down, the best show of the season so far.
Exhibit 1: James Bond-esque sports car. Owned by Crysis-tan no less!
Exhibit 2: Goldion Hammer.
Okay, not exactly, but works as advertised.
What? Having these two in one episode isn’t enough?! Fine, here’s a few more exhibits.
Carina takes the initiative! Pity she got cockblocked by the rest!
