My take on Full Metal Alchemist

So, all along, snooze has been raving about FMA. Just due to a busy schedule, I didn't make time to watch it, but I've been showing it at my anime club, and we just reached episode 16.

Yep, it's an excellent show. High production values, entertaining characters (I love Armstrong), good blend of drama, action, and humor. I don't care for the second set of opening and ending themes as much as I did for the first, but you can't have everything. They did a good job of ramping up the intensity, where it didn't hit so hard at first, but a few episodes in, wham. There's one episode in particular -- you'll know it when you see it -- where I was thinking, "Okay, it's obvious where they're going with this, but they wouldn't... oh, wow, they did... and now... what?? AUGH!"

On the one hand, I'm tempted to zip ahead and watch more episodes, but on the other hand, I'll be seeing them at the club anyway, so I should probably use my personal time on other shows... So Much Anime, So Little Time!

Yeah I heard many great things bout this show. Professional reviewers are giving this show some excellent ratings. I bought the first 3 dubbed volumes of this show wit the tinb box that comes wit the 1st dvd and the audio cd I also bought the first videogame licensed in america but still haven't seen any of the show or played any of the videogame yet. I will when I get a chance. Check out my site and post some comments too aight?
