No, I'm not done talking about this yet


Me: I just saw this at 4chan in regards to young Hoho: "At first I thought it was envy in his first form or something."
Kirsten: .........
Me: this is both headdesky and amusing at the same time
Kirsten: yes XD
Me: I think for the sake of my sanity I'm going to just look at this sort of stuff with humor because I think there will be a lot of it in the future
Kirsten: yyyyyyyyeah...
Me: it's great to see people discussing manga story elements so much now though :D
Kirsten: yesssssssss

Kirsten: You know, the OP looks like it could last for a good chunk of the series, in terms of the characters appearing and such.
Kirsten: but
Kirsten: "Bunan ni nante yatterarenai kara" <- I hope they use a different song by the time Ed sees Al's body
Me: yeah, I think it will last until the end of the Devil's Nest arc
Me: and then second OP will feature Xing characters I hope *_*
Kirsten: Yesssssssss *__*
Kirsten: Briggs characters by the third OP... *__*
Me: yesss
Kirsten: Pride by the fourth
Me: Greedling too!
Kirsten: I really don't think the OPs will last only 13 episodes like the first anime
Me: yeah...you know, looking back on Melissa, the first 13 episodes were so full of filler
Me: this anime is going to accomplish in 13 episodes what the first anime took 25 episodes to do I bet

Me: hmm, the character designs I thought looked pretty awkward, but they look great in the actual anime. especially Scar in the OP, he looks perfect. :D
Kirsten: Yesssss
Kirsten: Scar is my favorite part of the OP
Kirsten: Just saying
Me: XD
Me: I can't choose a favorite moment, I love it all
Me: like how Envy jumps out of Gluttony's mouth and Lust jumps out of Envy's mouth, it's kind of hilarious but appropriately disturbing
Kirsten: ...I. Didn't notice that, hold on
Me: it reminded me of some freaky leap-frog
Kirsten: ...oh holy crap wtf
Kirsten: *just found it*
Me: XD
Me: and I like how right after the shot of Greed, it shows Bradley standing in the same spot that Greedling does in the manga
Me: ...I *think* that's the same spot anyway?
Me: same-ish
Kirsten: Looks like it
Kirsten: or similar at least

Me: *watches Shinsen's sub* yay HD~
Me: the fact that this series will be released on Blue Ray makes me want to buy a Blue Ray player for the first time. I never cared about HD stuff before, but... 8D
Kirsten: ahahaha
Me: okay their translation of the OP song is bugging me a bit :/
Kirsten: I'm almost done with our sub of the OP! XD
Me: *focuses on just the visuals*
Me: yay~~
Me: I just noticed that Envy hops around on that platform thing with no problem but the moment Gluttony jumps on, it starts crumbling. shouldn't Envy be heavier? or maybe just the added weight of Gluttony causes the already strained platform to finally collapse?
Me: lol I dunno why I'm trying to look at an OP theme logically
Me: especially an OP that just had homunculi jumping out of each other's mouths seconds before
Kirsten: Speaking of the OP
Kirsten: I really love how they show Pinako during the "yasashisa ni wa itsumo kanshashiteru" line
Kirsten: ;^;
Me: yes :D
Me: and show Hughes right at the "gisei" line ;__;
Kirsten: Yeah ;_;
Kirsten: I did notice that too
Kirsten: I'm just working on the yasashisa line right now so
Me: the only way I could think of to improve it was adding Izumi too, but the OP is already pretty crowded
Me: I like the officer guy who's all smiley. "sasuga Hagane no Renkinjutsushi ^__^"
Me: with sparkly music
Kirsten: HE IS MY FAVORITE CHARACTER
Me: XDD
Kirsten: I AM SERIOUS
Me: I hope he didn't get killed in this episode : (
Me: though generally most nameless soldiers in this series are there for cannon fodder
Kirsten: ...I didn't even think about him getting killed D:
Kirsten: I like to think that he lived on
Kirsten: I shall call him Niko-kun
Me: looks like he got steamed by Isaac here, which doesn't look fatal
Me: XD
Me: wow, I like all the detail put into the townspeople who appear for like one second
Me: they're all wearing different clothes and hair styles...one guy has a cane and top hat
Kirsten: Wow XD
Me: after Isaac transmutes a bridge of ice, I like how he bothers to change the ice back to water when he's done with it so Roy can't follow him
Kirsten: XD
Kirsten: yes
Me: Father: My alchemy senses are tingling!
Kirsten: XDDDD
Me: ISAAC WAS RIGHT
Me: I also like how Ed bothers to dodge when Isaac goes flying in his direction
Me: oh wow there are a bunch of people in the street behind Armstrong when he's getting ready to punch the ice and they all have detailed clothes too :O
Me: Ed and Al backflip back onto their feet in unison <3
Me: WHAT
Me: Shinsen translated "hitobashira" as "human pillar" ://///
Kirsten: ...lol
Kirsten: ...well, that's what it literally translates to
Kirsten: and Jim Breen says that is a correct translation of it.
Kirsten: but lol
Me: that makes absolutely no sense in context though
Kirsten: I know XD
Me: "lol lets build a house using humans for the pillars!"
Me: Father's MASTER PLAN
Kirsten: dkfjhlksdjfhAHAHA
Me: the way Lust sets the phone aside for a second to scold Gluttony is just like a mother saying "Turn the TV down!" or "Stop hitting your brother!" while she's on the phone
Kirsten: I know XD
Kirsten: I loled
Me: the ending has a surprisingly well-choreographed sparring scene despite it being in chibi crayon style
Me: I read "Ok than we'll get together Al!" as "LET'S GATTAI"
Me: TA-DA
Kirsten: dlskfjglakdjfh
Me: ohhhh wow the State Alchemist certificate in the preview has actual legible English!
Me: "This official document certifies that the Nation of Amestris, Prefecture of the Generalissimo appoints the name FULLMETAL to EDWARD ELRIC, in the name of Fuhrer King Bradley."
Me: "The State Alchemist shall follow all orders and policies of the military."
Me: okay now I'm done XD



Also, here is something I found on 4chan that I think is amusing.
