Re: Episode 3 preview

While I am STILL anxiously waiting for an upload of the episode 2 RAW (please...someone...I can't use torrents on this computer), here's my thoughts on the episode 3 preview:

csakuras: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49b7AKaY_UQ is that...Rose holding a gun?
tobu_ishi: Is that Rose with brown hair instead of pink? <333
csakuras: Yes! :D
tobu_ishi: And she certainly does seem to have a gun!
csakuras: I'm intrigued to see what changes they'll have in the Lior episode now
tobu_ishi: Yeah...
csakuras: I'd probably be satisfied as long as Ed still transmutes the huge god statue
tobu_ishi: ^^
csakuras: I liked how Ed was such a jerk in the first few chapters

Also, I'm annoyed by how people are still calling the Doors of Truth "the Gate." D: Please, no one do that on my journal at least. They're different things.

Re: FMA Episode 2

So tobu_ishi and I watched it together. The following is our reactions while watching, and then my thoughts as I watched it a second time.

So, overall? My grade for the first two episodes:

Episode 1- B
Episode 2- C+

Though I'll probably feel better about it the more I rewatch it. Hopefully the pacing will improve once they get past the first few episodes, because that's the biggest problem so far. Otherwise, I'm loving it. :D

EDIT: As I thought, when watching it the third time, I was really able to enjoy it. It's funny, but from the reactions I've read, it looks like the people enjoying this anime the most are the ones who've never seen/read FMA before. XD The rest of us get too distracted by differences. I'm almost jealous.
