I don't want to own one volume and none of the others. Besides I have no way of buying it. (No money, no method of paying online, and none of the stores around here carry it.)

    You people should have seen me while is was watching the anime. I was expecting it to be similar than the manga for more of it. There were many Chris Griffen-esque "WHUUUUUUUUUT?" moments during my watching... specifically (other than the ending)
    - Tucker's disturbing upside-down head chimera.
    - the fact that homunculi were the dead people so sloth was their mom.
    - when Hughes says that he wasn't in Ishbal
    - the list goes on...

    Speaking of owning parts, I bought parts one and two of a six part set of FMA: B and then was given part one of two of the entire set, Blu-ray... and decided to resell the Blu-ray version since I needed money, but now I'm missing the last four parts of the anime, argh.

      May I say, I am so happy right now. I am currently watching FMAB for the first time, and Ling, one of my favourite characters, is voiced by one of my favourite voice actors! Yay! This isn't an exact quote, but an approx. of a funny situation:
      Random Villager: You're going to have to pay for all this damage you've caused!
      Ed: It wasn't us! It was those guys! (points at Ling)
      Ling: I sorry! I no speak good your country language! Okay-bye-bye! (runs away)

      The people of the Pokémon world aren't too creative. They named Pokémon after what sound they make. If we were like them, a cow would be called a "moo".

      Just finished a volume of Soul Eater, volume 14. At this point, it has become very different compared to the anime, and I kind of like it. Some of the characters have gotten a lot more fleshed out (specifically the meister team of Ox, Kilik, and Kim), and things are happening quite differently. An exciting read.

      The iPod music game, Cytus. While I may not know very many of the songs, I really like its music, and the gameplay is easy to pick up yet takes quite a while to master. A friend has seen me play it and he says I make it look easy, but I am still having a fun and challenging time. Definitely worth the price.

        Pffffft, I remember that scene now that you mention it. x3

        Ling in general is hilarious!

          When greed went into Ling and he got the suave-y voice, it creeped me out for a while, but know i'm used to it and it makes him sound really neat. So cool and so refined.

          Also on that, Greed and Ling were two of my favourites. When they meshed, I was so "TOGEHER FOREVER!" (fingers crossed while saying this).

            Ooooh, and then there was that one moment where

            Spoiler:
            Greed kills Bido, and Ling flips out on him for his "I don't remember the 'Old' Greed's life" comment, by saying something along the lines of "Your friends are a part of your soul"

              Oh my god yeah! That was such an emotional part of the story! I almost cried when there was that huge collage of everything he remembered and ended with a heartfelt "ahhhhh!" Then the next time we saw him, he confronted Bradley and became ours! (The good guys', I mean)

              I couldn't help but cry when

              Spoiler:
              Envy died even though it was totally expected. His little speech right before he gave in was unbearably sad... ;_; Though there's also the heart-wrenching scene when Ling and Greed were separated aka Greed died omgggg.

              I hated Envy, felt like he was a little ♥♥♥♥♥ I would feel no mercy for squishing beneath my feet. Greed on the other hand, he lived.

                What's everyone's thoughts on the envy gender crisis? The anime actor is a girl, and when I read the manga, there wasn't a single doubt in my mind that she wasn't a girl. I only got confused when Ed and Ling were calling envy "he" inside of Gluttony's stomach. At first I thought it was a typo. So, yeah.

                I've never thought Envy looked like a girl, though I can see why some would assume so.

                Greed was a great character and I miss him. :[

                  Of course, the way Greed helps take out Father even after getting reabsorbed is TOTALLY BADASS.

                  Envy is male. or you could just say the Homunculi are Genderless.

                      Hmm... good point. For example, it seems obvious that Lust would be female, but (talking manga/brotherhood here) she's a part of father/dwarfinflask's personality. It would be a bit odd that he would have a section of him that's female. So that could be a possibility of genderless-ness.

                      Spoiler:
                      And also, dwarfinflask is pretty much genderless as well. He only seems male because he has Hohenheim's body.

                      I have to admit I thought Envy was female when I watched FMA 2003 as a kid. I guess I had never seen a guy with long hair before. Ughh, it's been since January since I've seen this, and I wouldn't mind watching/streaming. The fourth opening for Brotherhood in the get-together radio jams got me hooked again. It's such an amazing song.

                        I have to admit I thought Envy was female when I watched FMA 2003 as a kid. I guess I had never seen a guy with long hair before.
                        By that logic, I assume you woulda thought Ed was also a girl than? XD
                        You gotta admit, he is kinda feminine sometimes.

                        Also, HI AISU! Welcome.

                          Point about men with long hair... is it just me or are there a lot of those in FMA? Envy and Ed have been mentioned for general longness. Hohenheim, Kimblee, and Ling are all invited to the men's ponytail party. Then, on the other spectrum, there are short-haired females like maria ross and hawkeye. That's really neat.

                            I JUST REMEMBERED A COOL THING. Ever hear of Area 11? Apparently they occasionally put out original songs based on animes and whatnot. Guess what they did! LISTEN TO THIS!

                              This was my reaction to that video:

                              Spoiler:

                              That was awesome. And cool song in general. That opening guitar riff was flip-the-coffee-table awesome. Everyone should hear that.

                              BTW, you said they made songs about animes. What else have they done songs for?

                              Deep Thoughts...
                              The people of the Pokémon world aren't too creative. They named Pokémon after what sound they make. If we were like them, a cow would be called a "moo".

                              I'm Reading...
                              Just finished a volume of Soul Eater, volume 14. At this point, it has become very different compared to the anime, and I kind of like it. Some of the characters have gotten a lot more fleshed out (specifically the meister team of Ox, Kilik, and Kim), and things are happening quite differently. An exciting read.

                              I'm Playing...
                              The iPod music game, Cytus. While I may not know very many of the songs, I really like its music, and the gameplay is easy to pick up yet takes quite a while to master. A friend has seen me play it and he says I make it look easy, but I am still having a fun and challenging time. Definitely worth the price.

                                Apparently this is one is based on Gurren Lagann (I wouldn't know, I never watched it)

                                Hm... speaking of music, what's your favorite piece of music from FMA?

                                  My favorite music to listen to is Golden Time Lover, though I do like to play Again and Chemistry on piano.

                                      Holy ♥♥♥♥, I would, but... I can only do the vocals; I can't do the arrangement yet. Need new sheets. The only full song I can play is the Teen Titans theme. I'll get back to you for the Brotherhood songs. Summer is winding down and I have less practice time as I spend these last two weeks ♥♥♥♥♥ing about the return of school.

                                      The "Brothers" track from FMA is definitely my favorite. The Russian version especially gives me chills but Vic's English version is another heart-wrenching piece that is just magnificent to listen to. It really is a masterpiece imho.
