    How/when did you get into the FMA series? What are your overall thoughts on the manga/anime?

    How I first got into the FMA series was actually out of random. One morning a couple years ago, I was browsing Netflix in the Anime category, looking for an anime to watch. The only *good* one was FMA and I was like "hmm okay, lemme try that one then." I was pretty hooked on the first episode, I was wondering about the ongoing status of Alphonse and if he'll ever get his body back through alchemy. I binged through most of the first arc, which was what... 50 or so episodes? Then I moved on to Brotherhood which tore me apart emotionally imo. Brotherhood is on Netflix now, so I'm planning to rewatch that again to relive that emotional roller coaster. xD

    If there's a livestream coming soon, I'm so there. Just pick a date and I'll try to make it when I can. :D

      I would have liked to see more of Roy Mustang vs different Homonculi........ It would've been quite epic.......... I loved the fight where Roy Mustang literally killed Envy and Lust(different fights) and the final battle with father..............
      I have really loved the series....... It had a great storyline and concept but I do not wish that it continues because the continuation would ruin the story imo..........

      @Axeliira: Welcome! Brotherhood dub or sub is on Netflix? Now I regret getting rid of Netflix. ;_; Brotherhood tears me apart even when I rewatch clips on youtube. Powerful story there!

          I'm in EST and I'm usually free all the time... though, this weekend is my Birthday, and I'm unsure of what my plans are... so I'll probably miss out on one or both days D8

          Buuuuut, I'll tune in if/when I can. and I haven't watched the Sub, so I think it would be a nice change. :3

          Friday at 6 (I'll be on my work break then), and Saturday at 9 are the only times I can make it. I'm PST, Sunday is more probable though!

          It was dubbed, which I didn't mind at all, although I do prefer subbed version because it felt a bit more natural.

          & OMG YES. I think I started to get a little teary eyed after the first few episodes ;;

          I'll try to pop by all of them! These times are mostly all fine for me since I'm off for the next few weeks. So happy for a livestream event. <3

          I'm CST, but I should be able to join for all except the first stream. (:

          **edit**
          Also, I'm not too concerned about subs vs dubs, but if it were up to me I would prefer dubs so I can make popcorn while the show is playing. Beyond that, it has 0 relevance to me.

          Awesome! Will definitely try to catch some of these livestreams. I'm thinking that Saturday will probably be my best chance to participate. Maybe Friday too for the evening ones. Looking forward to it!

            Unfortunately I don't think I'll ever be able to make it to the 2PM or 6PM Friday ones because of school, and I could MAYBE make it to the 9PM Friday one if it's not this weekend, though I'm not 100% as something might pop up. I could probably make it to the Saturday ones any weekend though. Sorry, dumb timezones ;;

              Discussion topic: Are there any characters you wanted to get more screentime/to see more of, be it in the original Fullmetal Alchemist or Brotherhood? Why? One of my favorite minor characters is Major Miles, and even though we learn a bit about his past and motivations, I always enjoyed when he was on the screen and would never have minded seeing more of him.

              Hey guys! The livestream starts in about 45 minutes. Doesn't seem like anyone who posted in here'll be joining the first one, though I'll keep the stream up, in case anyone does attend it :)

              Welcome to the club, hughes! Major Miles is a cool character because his voice actor voices Krieg in Borderlands 2 hottt. I don't remember much about the Briggs arc, though. Need to rewatch those bits. :3

              Awesome, our livestream is going! I'm gonna post some thoughts on each one. :)

              Episode 1
              Spoiler:
              I missed seeing all of the "DON'T CALL ME LITTLE" outbursts. :D
              Oh, we saw a glimpse of Father. :O Were they trying to do the thing in the first episode (the doomsday that they later accomplish towards the end of Brotherhood)? Hmm..


              Episode 2
              Good good, some parts were creepy and sad, though. :(

              Edit: Also, when I'm the host, I'll be using my Livestream account at http://www.livestream.com/twilightblade
              I may be late in starting the 6PM show. I was supposed to pick up my paycheck today and I haven't. >.>;

              Welcome, guys! Hoo boy I must have somehow missed the influx of new members. Glad that we're havin' all these fans join us in the club~

              The first livestream went great but I was sadly out taking brother to karate for the next one so I missed that. D8 But the early batch of episodes we watched during the 2PM EST stream were great - my first time watching it dubbed so that was neat.
              Spoiler:
              Loved the silly expressions and especially interactions between Ed and Al after their first fight/getting wrecked by Scar.

              Answer a topic:

              How/when did you get into the FMA series? What are your overall thoughts on the manga/anime?

              Back in 7th grade there was a friend of mine super into Japanese culture (can't call her weeaboo cuz she's Chinese, and besides way too cool for the label) and she kinda sorta got all of us into anime and manga. FMA obviously had it's appeal as shonen, but it was also intellectually very stimulating with its references to history (Amestris as interwar Germany), philosophy (morality and ethics, individual beliefs versus collective responsibilities), crossing over science and the supernatural and spiritual (alchemy), as well as having awesome art and design (I love those military uniform gaaaah for a military nut back in the day it was quite the source of nerdgasms)!

              If you were a state alchemist, what would you want your code name to be?

              The Red Alchemist would be pretty cool The Blood Alchemist The Stormtrooper Alchemist The Dreadknight Alchemist

              Have you read the FMA manga? If so, did you read it through until the end or was the anime your preference?

              This is all I know of the FMA franchise. I've only read however many volumes were available at the library. I don't think there were many between grade 7-9. I think I gave up after I wasn't sure when the next volumes were coming in.

              I'm streaming the 9pm one at http://www.livestream.com/twilightblade

              Ed's face at the end of episode 22 looked like it was about to shatter. The things I notice the second time around, wow.

                Answer a topic: There are so many good quotes, but I think I'll go with one from Mustang, first anime series, subbed version: "There is no such thing as perfection. The world itself is imperfect. That's what makes it so beautiful". I like this one very much because it sort of compresses one of the main themes of the series: learning to accept life as it is and finding those important things - simple beauty, friendship, love - in a world that maybe isn't what we always want it to be, but where the struggles we all go through and the "scars" we get during the journey is what in the end makes it all worthwhile. The fact that we are going to die someday is what provide life with meaning and purpose.

                Welcome to the club! Super sorry for the delay in adding you. n~n;

                But that is a gorgeous quote, I agree - FMA is full of touching quotes and moments. It's part of why it's such a good show for people to watch. Makes you realize that you should appreciate the little things. :)

                Bringing this club back to action!

                We all have characters we dislike, be it a little or a lot - who is your least favorite character in FMA and why? It doesn't have to be a character you necessarily dislike if you've no one so feel free to let us know who some of the more forgettable or less enjoyable characters are to you.

                Envy. He went out of his way to wreck other people's lives in the most tormenting way possible. First with starting the civil war, then with Roy/Hughes and still using Ms. Hughes image, and IIRC getting Marco to decide between the world and his tiny village... I feel like the rest of the homonculi would fight and use their powers when necessary; they didn't go around starting drama.
