I'm switching gears away from Gundam to Fullmetal Alchemist for the moment. I've never seen any FMA, but I thought I should. I'm watching Brotherhood, because that's the one I have and someone told me it's better (dunno if that's true).



It's not necessarily better, just different. It just follows the manga so more people are apt to crown it. But after comparing the two, I do think Brotherhood is better because I didn't like the whole buildup to the ending of the first one. Also you get a better sense of finality. And you can't forget about having Yao Ling and Olivier Mira Armstrong in it. But I also kinda liked Dante, who was an original anime character from the first one. The ending for the first one was also kind of an interesting idea. Brotherhood is the one you should definitely watch, but if you ever have time the first one isn't a bad watch either.

For the new stuff...the first episode of Maoyu was a mess...I'll give it another ep to get going, but I'm not feeling optimistic about it.



:shy: Have not yet seen it yet (buffering it right now) but I am scared now


Well I'm glad I'm making the right choice about which one to watch, sounds like. The first two eps were cool.

I think the cool thing about Brotherhood and the original is that they're so different after the first 1/3rd or so of the story (which is also somewhat different in it's own right) that you can watch both without getting bored. HunterXHunter is doing a remake thing but it's the same plot, just much improved animation imo.


One thing I wish Brotherhood had is the Nana Kitade song from the original. I associate it with FMA even though I'm just now getting around to watching FMA.

Is that a new show that just started, or has it been going on for a while?

By the way LLJ, sorry if I'm overly aggressive with my opinions about anime. I get intense about it.

No problem. To be honest, I get pretty passionate talking about any sort of film or TV series in general, at least the ones I feel are notable.

Girls und Panzer is really underrated, don't be put off by the pink tank in the beginning section.

Robotics;Notes is getting really interesting.

Did you know Initial D was back!? After over six years of waiting, Fifth Stage is finally airing, although it is only two episodes per month.

I agree. I thought Girls und Panzer was going to be like Uppotte (which was a total piece of **** despite its seiyuus) but its a good series. I'm annoyed about the break though.'

Uh, the pink tank is WHY I watched it in the first place, lol. And yeah, it's really good.

The first ep of AKB0048 Next Stage was good.

So was the first ep Senran Kagura. It seems as if it'll be a decent oppai show. Good oppai animations, lol.

The first ep of Sasami-san@Ganbaranai was...engaging. But it remains to be seen if they can make a show of this.

Turns out Tamako Market is about a talking bird. idk... :dontknow:

There was definitely something there. I'm not completely sold yet, but we'll see.

So I've watched: Tamako Market, Vividred Operation, and Boku wa Tomodachi so far

Vividred Operation:
Liked it a lot. Had a lot of the same energy of Strike Witches. Transformation sequence was well done. 1st ep was a winner for me. Seems to be heading into sci-fi magical girl territory.

Tamako Market:

This was pretty good too. It was a bit boring but with KyoAni you know something is gonna happen. Interesting cliffhanger. And it has all of the moe-blob elements I was looking for! Also the bird is voiced by the same dude who was Kayneth in Fate/Zero so I can't stop imagining him whenever the bird talks. And the animation was not nearly as crisp as I expected. Hopefully that picks up.

Boku wa Tomodachi:
Thought it was hilarious, especially the ending. Jeez I couldn't stop laughing after that part. Bunch of new characters in the opening, I am interested in seeing them.

Senyuu... what a waste.
Bakumatsu... eh not exactly anything great.
The Unlimited... one show I actually am intrigued by.
Mayouu Maou Yuusha... not exactly what I had in mind.
Cuticle Detective Inaba... its silly, but in this weak season for me, I'll follow it.
