Volume 2 of The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya is very funny but it's starting to get too fanservice-y. Also, when reading it today, I saw something I never thought I would see...Kyon and Koizumi in bunnygirl outfits. O_o

I never watched brotherhood but isn't it both the same thing?

The original FMA deviates from the manga half way through (since the manga wasn't complete during it's creation), so it's second half is completely different from the manga.

FMA:B follows the manga from beginning to end.

Thanks for letting me know, I guess one day I will get to watch it and expect something new.

I will admit, FMA's ending was a bit rushed.

I just hate how the villains are defeated. If I ever get into writing fiction, that will go on top of my list on how and more importantly, who does NOT get to be the ones to defeat the villains.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

In FMA you mean? How so?

Compare these two openings:

The art style in Brotherhood is just kinda off, and the song isn't as good.
BTW, whoever posted the Brotherhood vid got it wrong, Melissa by Porno Graffitti was FMA's first Opening, not Brotherhood's.)

While I might not like Brotherhood's style, it is apparent to me that the 6 years in between the shows, and the presumably larger budget contribute to a better animated show. Now that might sound like a contradiction, but it's not. While I do think it has good animation, I simply don't like the style. I recognize its craft and budget.

Ehhh...now that I think of it, it's style is growing on me, I might have been a bit blinded by my annoyance at FMA B fanboys when I said I dislike the art style...I will give the show more of a chance. But I still prefer FMA's 1st Opening.

Toonami Saturday night!

Bleach - The true nature of "a special object" has been revealed! Ichigo now has to face "an opponent", who has the fastest Zanpakuto in existence!

Naruto - I never knew watching people complete a written test could be so riveting!

Soul Eater - Okay, I just realized that I'm actually starting to get invested in the story (the stylistic choices are starting to go right by me).

ThunderCats - Repeat.

IGPX - only paid attention when the old Toonami announcer was narrating, lol.

Eureka 7 - A lot of technical mumbo jumbo, and the evil military guy stirring up the masses.

Tenchi Muyo! GXP - It was the final episode. With anime polygamous marriage, and off screen (but very clearly voiced) "relations", this episode has single handedly surpassed the rest of the series in the sheer amount of WTF did I just watch.

Oh, and there was an all new One Piece promo! Complete with cliché pirate voice narrator...

So it's taken four episodes, but I can finally say that I absolutely adore Aku no Hana! Everything in the fourth episode was just so wonderfully paced, I actually found myself cheering Kasuga on at one point. It's cool how his seiyuu speaks with a slightly higher pitch whenever he's talking to Saeki.

The new OP was... interesting... As a song it was horrendous, but at least it fits the show a bit better than the first one :/

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

Eh, I really can't say I like Again, whereas Melissa is fantastic.

WHAT?!?!
Huh, Melissa's my favorite anime opening I'd say.

I finished it quite a few weeks back.
Quite honestly, I love all of FMA's openings.

Still, based on all this praise I'll have to check Brotherhood out because I loved the first anime so much, but I feel like I'd rather read the manga first because I keep hearing that it's better than both animes.
