truth... or all... or one. and I am you.

I never did get all the way into Fullmetal Alchemist the first time round, maybe because I started with the anime and it was so... uneven. some really good stuff mixed in with some terrible no-good bad, and there were other, better things to watch, so I let it fall by the wayside and then didn't bother with the manga. but I was told by more than one person that the second go-round, Brotherhood, was supposedly much better, especially given that it covered the manga in full, so I bought the first season then promptly forgot about it. it sat on my shelf unwatched until last week when I bought the second season and decided to mainline the entire series in two days.

well I really didn't *decide* to, it just happened because FMA:Brotherhood is just that good. if it'd been a manga, I wouldn't've been able to put it down, which is why I've finally got round to the manga itself, which I've kind of devoured already and am already re-reading because. so good.

it's no wonder I'm a total Greed fan, huh?

actually, a fan across the board. Arakawa's characters are three-dimensional and human whether they're humans or not, her storyline is one of the most imaginative I've ever run across, and well, FMA is just a damned good story well told, and the Brotherhood anime is one of the best I've seen in... you know, I don't really know how long. I don't really need to give a summary, do I? most of you are anime fans and most anime fans have some idea of what FMA is about, I think, so I guess this is a suggestion to those who've maybe been thinking about watching and putting it off the way I did: do so no longer, seriously. it'll ruin your life in the best way and, if you're me, kick your writer's block to the kerb. my brain just does not want to leave Pride and his mum alone, to say nothing of Ed's final sacrifice, fml.
