I watched the LAST episode of Fullmetal Alchemist last night.
All I have to say is: ARGH
It wasn't the worst series ending I'd seen, but certainly not the best. You could tell they were really rushed to try and fit everything in within the deadline and episode count. This makes me kind of sad, because the pacing at the beginning of the series was good, and they tackled a lot of emotional issues that are kind of ignored at the end. There are a lot of loose ends, too.
But.. they're making a movie... so that should help.

In other news:
It's still raining, so the roof is still leaking.
I need to start sewing for Halloween.
Gotta get a hotel reservation for Ushi.
Gotta clean the house.
Gotta schedule to have the rest of my dental work done.
Gotta go to work. >..< Talk to you guys later. 2pm-10pm= ass

At least it's not like the Flames of Recca ending.

"Hey, what about all this crap we didn't get around to?"
'Oh well.'

But yeah, hahaha, I liked the ending just fine, and the movie should sew things up nicely. You should read the manga if you haven't, since the story is different, and also better, I think.

If you need something new to replace FMA, try any of the following:
Tsukuyomi ~Moon Phase~
Yakitate! Japan
Fantastic Children

Samurai Gun and Onmyou Taisenki looked really bad to me. I have other 1st episodes yet to watch, plus Mai-Hime 2 came out yesterday. Stupid new series, all coming out within two weeks of each other. Bleh.

I didn't really mind FoR so much, because a freind of mine (at the time) was REALLY into the manga. I mean.. when they ended the anime, the manga series was still running. Now it's over, but that's ok. Tokyopop is translating it.
At least with FoR, the anime stayed really close to the manga.

I have the first 4 volumes of Fullmetal Alchemist, and I've read some scanlations online of the later chapters where the story really starts to deviate. I liked the anime series up until around the end. At about that time, I started feeling really sorry for Arakawa-sensei.

I've heard a lot of hype about Bleach. I don't know what it's about, though.
I'm still watching Naruto, and if I get around to it, I'll start downloading the rest of Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu. I started that one, and was really getting into it... but I started running out of room on my HD, and burned everything off. Then I kinda forgot to get the rest...
I'm also watching Monster on and off. I saw the first episode of another series a while back, but I haven't been able to find any more, so I think it got licensed right away. Oh well XD

recca recca munch munch munch! XD

I haven't seen past episode three of E'S Otherwise. And I'm not telling anybody this, but it's mostly out of fear. The first episode was so dramatically different from the manga, I'm really nervous for the rest of it. Shhhh, don't spread that around, everyone should buy the anime so the manga gets released over here. ^_^ Yaaay manga!

Just trust me, watch first episode of Bleach. It should be a fun action anime, and if it follows the manga, will make a decent replacement in your viewing schedule for FMA, though not nearly as depressing.

Also, Naruto is crap past the late 90s. They deviated from the manga with disgusting results. I'll tell you later when an episode comes out that starts off the manga arc that just ended this week (and was about 90 chapters long x_x).

Monster is really good, but it's going to be 72 episodes, so it'll be a long time before it's over. But I've read all of the manga, and it will be worth watching since there's no reason at all for them to deviate from the plot of the manga. I just hope 20th Century Boys gets animated next.
