Edward

random observation

Hee hee. I was rewatching the first two episodes of Full Metal Alchemist today, and found myself counting the days Ed and Al were spending in the city of Lior. Ever since I started watching Kino's Journey, I got into the habit of thinking things like "Okay, so this is Day 2" during episodes.
And it turns out...Ed and Al stayed in Lior for exactly 3 days. Amazing how much trouble they got into in such a short amount of time. They tore apart the whole city's belief system, killed two chimeras, caused thousands of cenz worth of property damage, and started what would soon become a bloody civil war (though the Sins and the military contributed to that as well).
Now imagine how things would have turned out if Kino were in their position. She would drive around with Hermes, take a gander at the fountain of wine, listen to the radio broadcast a little, have a quick chat with Rose, watch Cornello cast his "miracles," eat lots of good Lior cuisine, take a shower, sleep in a comfy bed, practice drawing her guns, have a philisophical discussion with Hermes, then leave. I repeat: THEN LEAVE.
Now I understand what someone meant when they said that Kino likes to run away from the plot. ^_^

Well, shoot

Stupid Best Buy. You tempt me with your cheap prices then stab me in the back. I hate you.
I went to buy Kino Volume 4. And it wasn't there. It came out yesterday, but Best Buy doesn't have it yet. They'll have it on the 29th. That's like a week away. *CRY*
So instead I got my mom to buy me the first Wolf's Rain DVD. I don't care if it starts to suck in the second half, I need some comforting that only another gorgeous-in-every-aspect anime can provide. Besides, it's five episodes for only $20. You don't just ignore a deal like that.
And here I am playing some sad, somber Haibane Renmei music (grr, I need the soundtrack) to go with my mood. Once my mom goes to sleep I'll watch Wolf's Rain and prepare to be amazed. Then at 12:30 I'll watch Detective Conan. It's the wedding episode. Ahh, memories.
But still. No new Kino. No new FMA. Don't be surprised if everything I write tomorrow is incredibly angsty.
