NaokoElric writes...

"Now, I want to highlight that it is not only woman Arakawa-sensei was being sexist too. Are you familiar with the Omake of an AU FMA, in which computers excited? Hohenheim introduces Edward to pornography and Edward's searches is full of dirty words? Again, another point highlighted by AveriaAlexandros. Edward is quite asexual in the manga, but he is male so he must like woman and look up nude pictures of woman online, does he not?"

Um...I read most of the manga online and only own a few volumes so far, so I haven't seen a lot of the omakes. I think...

This is part 1 of my response to NaokoElric's rant about sexism in FMA, link While I admit my initial reaction to her rant was a bit knee-jerk ("WHAAAAAT OMG NO FMA IS NOT SEXIST WHAT PLANET IS SHE FROM HOLY ARAKAWA"), it proved to be a fun and interesting challenge once I gave it a chance. It forced me not to take FMA for granted and really look at the content, and helped me gain a greater appreciation for it and a better understanding of why I believe what I believe in.

I thought it'd be interesting to share the rant rebuttals over here and see what you guys think about the issue. I'll post...

This article was NOT written by me. It was written by flower-in-the-light, a friend of mine on deviantART. link The reason why I'm posting this as an article instead of a link is because I think it'll get more attention this way, lol. It's a very well thought-out article, and a wonderful rebuttal against the "Winry-is-abusive" and "EdWin-is-unhealthy" claims out there. Feel free to comment with your own thoughts about it!

~ Allegations of Abuse In FMA ~

Very recently, a number of fanfictions have come about claiming that Winry Rockbell is abusive, mainly toward Edward Elric. The reason is...

《Ed's P.O.V.》

Tatsumaki said, "6 years ago, when she was 7, her parents were killed in front of her in a torture chamber. Last year, her aunt died of an illness and this year her grandmother was killed- she was stabbed twice and pushed down the stairs. Her neck twisted. Kutsuu wants to become a better alchemist, though she has amazing talent, and avenge her murdered family. Even if you don't see it, she's suffering." I looked down. "Wow..." He sighed. "It doesn't end there. After her parents died, she tried Human Alchemy and nearly died from what happened." He was going to continue when...

Okay, the new series of FMA is amazing, it goes by the manga & it has a fresh new take on it.

But, shouldn't other anime get another chance & have another series like Air Gear By Oh Great!. Insted of creating a new series in Japan. They're creating OVAs to skip the big stuff that is happening in the manga like Ikki vs Ringo & Kogarsmaru vs the Original Sleeping Forest in a A Class Parts War called Balloon.

How about Oh Great!'s other creation Tenjho Tenge. A japanese high school that is run by fighting. That has sexy girls & fierce fight that is so good. It only had a small shot on TV & didn't finish it to the ened of the manga series.

Now, with this one Flame of Recca, it goes by an old school style of anime & still didn't get a 2nd series to finish off the manga, I mean FullMetal Alchemist got an anime series when it was starting out & is still popular right now so, why not create a 2nd series that goes by & finish by the manga series.

Okay...I've watched every episode of Brotherhood so far, and I think I've finally got a solid opinion formed on it. Bear with me; this is kinda long, but I really need to vent this out. Also, before reading this rant, keep in mind that I was introduced to FMA through the first anime series, and I read the manga afterwards. So unlike a lot of fans, I haven't gone through the frustration of reading the original epic stories and then watching something that goes in a completely different direction.

Okay.

Manga enthusiasts, don't kill me...but I've tried to give Brotherhood a chance. I've tried SO...

Stone of philosophers, ruby red stone,

which caused so much sacrifice and misery unknown.

Deceptively though, the stone did appeal

and made foolish men think its happiness real.

O wise philosopher you must grieve no more

if you wish to revive the mirth of before.

You must face your past, for you cannot atone

for the damage you wrought with the wretched red stone.

Where is the land? That land from the past,

which many before you sought and amassed?

Take heed of their folly, and don't be deceived

by the trap which left many despaired and bereaved.

Though for happiness, power and ease they did strive,

instead they found death and now none are alive.

Consider these perished; this warning adhere.

Will you continue to seek out this stone you held dear?

You who beheld it’s baneful hue red

when the blood of your own arm and own leg was shed?

Stone of philosophers, ruby red stone.

When will you cease and leave mankind alone?
Title: Edward vs. Edward

Rating: Rated G for Giggles! :D
Summary: Once upon a blank piece of paper, two very different characters from two very different fandoms happened to bump into each other. One was an alchemist with height issues. The other was a vampire with no fangs. Chaos and comical verbal attacks ensued.

This goes out to all of you who are Team Edward...ELRIC!! Because when HE glistens in the sun, IT'S BADASS. No offense to the Twilighters, but our awesome, butt-kicking, short-ranting Ed was around long before Mr. Sparklepants was even a speck of glitter in Stephanie...

DO NOT READ if you have NOT seen the anime up to episode 25 of the 1st season!

Please forgive the grammar and randomness of this article. For the love I put into this tribute is enough....

21 guns like the sound of thunder,
All honoring the friend, the father, the lover.
The perfect family was over and the journey for one boy just beggining.

Yay, another Envily story! X3 I worked really hard on this one, so I hope you enjoy it. :)


Emily sleeps soundly in her sleeping bag in the quiet forest. Suddenly a sound wakes her. "Emily, Emily? Wake up, I've got something for you." Emily yawns and leans up. Seeing that it's just Envy, she groans and rubs her eyes. "What is it Envy, can't I sleep a little but more?" Envy shakes his head. "Nope, not on your birthday you can't. You wouldn't want this to go to waste." Envy moves his hands out from behind his back, reviling a chocolate cake. "Happy Birthday, I made it myself." Emily stands up wide...

The sun shone bright through Atari's window. A nearby rooster crows and he sits straight up in bed, a huge smile on his face. He jumped out of his bed and within seconds was fully dressed and ready to start his day. “Time to go and save the world with my ALCHEMY!!!!!” he bellowed and ran out the door.
    His yell had echoed across the town and reached the ears of two near by girls.
--alchemy-alchemy-alchemy!--
Their heads immediately turned in the direction of the echo. The two (rather stupid) girls cupped their hands around their mouths and called back in unison “ALCHEMY!!!!”...

《Kutsuu's P.O.V.》

I ran through the streets with Batos, heading to Aohana's location. I almost tripped over a rock but continued running. We soon found the sixteen year old, navy haired, gray eyed, girl. She was on the ground, choking. "What happened to her, Batos?" "She ate one of the Forbidden Seeds!" I asked, "Why?" I kneeled to help her. "I don't know, she just ate it!" I picked her up and stood behind her, doing the Heimlich Maneuver. The seed flew out of her mouth. She coughed. I asked, "Why did you try to digest a Forbidden Seed, Aohana?" She said, "I wanted to see her again..."...

OK, so here goes. IMO, FMA Brotherhood > FMA1 in almost every way. Now you may not agree with me, but thats what this article is for. I am going to try my best to convince you that FMA Brotherhood is the better series. FMA Brotherhood is better for a whole whack of reasons, which i am going to neatly organize for your viewing pleasure.


FMA brotherhood has a better story. Of course, why shouldn't it, since it is faithful to the manga. FMA1 was good.... up until around episode 30, where it ran out of steam and went off track, as requested by hiromu (well, the latter part anyways). So the anime...

So i watched the Live action Fullmetal Alchemist Movie on Netflix with a friend. IT is a good movie. I liked how it stayed true to the FMA/Brotherhood story. And Edward Elric the actor is too tall looking. But other than that,the live action FMA Movie is spot on. Glad they did not fully mess up with this movie. Hope they make another one.

I feel that Netflix and Warner brothers did a good job on this movie. People out there in the world need to stop comparing Anime live actions to the episodes. It's like how Marvel and DC Movies change and is not similar to the comics and cartoons sometimes....

Cleave apart the memories of those faraway days with your hands
End the breath of sadness
Come on, pierce through my chest made anxious by love

Asu ga kuru hazu no sora wo mite Mayou bakari no kokoro moteamashiteru
Katawara no tori ga habataita Doko ka hikari wo mitsukerareta no ka na

Looking at the sky in which the tomorrow will come, I don't know what to do with my heart that is only lost
Birds by my side flew away- I wonder if they found light somewhere

《Kaste's P.O.V.》

I dropped the equipment I was carrying. I saw a hooded figure. I could only tell it was female by breasts and voice. I could only see part of her eyes and under. She said, "You are going to be taken into custody for disturbing graves." I watched in utter confusion as she clapped her hands together and then pushed them against the ground. Instantly, I was in some kind of cage. She holstered the gun she had dropped and a boy appeared. He had golden hair in a braid. I growled, "Stupid little girl, I'll get you. Better watch your back."

Hello everybody and welcome to my second review. Today's anime will be ( drum roll please...): the original Full Metal Alchemist! Note i will be doing Brotherhood review and will be posting it on the Brotherhood spot and here to probably. Since we are fans here and know the plot i will not explain it and get right into my opinions. Let's begin....

Plot: Few anime's have captivated me the way this one did. It's plot about two brothers trying to restore what they lost was beautiful. This anime as i'm sure most know doesn't follow the original manga but does that mean it was a failure? no. This...

Chapter 8: Midsummer Night's Dream Under A Star Soaked Sky 

"So I'm guessing we'll have to just trek until we get there, huh? Where are we?" Al asked, carrying an unconscious Ling on his back. They had headed down road of the mutilated track, letting the officials deal with the wreckage. All Ed knew was; Ling was beyond lucky he was aboard that specific train. 
"What's wrong with him?" Hayden asked, holding Boston up so he could smell the young lord's body. Ed groaned as he palmed his eyeball. 
"He's hungry. But we don't have any food. Don't tell me we have to carry this zombie around until...
