Iconage!  
Hey...I finally got up the courage to join the community, mainly because I was afraid of spoilers and I just caught up today.

You know what that means.

Yes; my eyes bleed.

Therefore, a comment on my current icon got me to make some FMA counterparts...spoiler free. Observe:



Comment if you like or if you snatch! Hell, comment anyway. Just credit me in the keywords if you use em ^^;;

Shouldn't it say "Funimation"? Adult Swim just airs it. xD;
Ananomoreprinces on September 29th, 2004 07:27 pm (UTC)
Naw Funimation won't edit it for broadcast purposes. Adult Swim will.
Marikaitou_marina on September 29th, 2004 05:12 pm (UTC)
*raises hand* Um... what's wrong with FMA being on Adult Swim? For that matter, what's wrong with Wolf's Rain being on Adult Swim?

I'm just mildly confused and interested in what the problem is.

*sweatdrop* usually when an anime goes on adult swim, its fanbase generally becomes clogged with 13 year old mary sue-writing fangirls, bad fanfiction, and general immaturity. *points to trigun and inuyasha*

Argh, I have a love/hate relationship with adult swim. Love = it showed me Cowboy Bebop and FLCL. Hate = IT RUINED RUROUNI KENSHIN'S FANDOM.

So I'm snatching one of these for future use... (whenever I get a paid account, that is T_T)

Eh, the FMA fandom on ff.net already has a few of those kinds of fans then again, this is ff.net that I'm talking about...soo..., so I doubt that the Adult Swim will ruin it too much it might even give me some good Envy X Ed authors....

All in all, I lurk on ff.net, so I'm used to those kinds of fans, and have been able to avoid them by the summarys. I'm worried about this community though. It posts enough in one day as it is...
Buffalo in a China Shoprinnychan on September 29th, 2004 05:49 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure what people see in EnvyxEd ^^;;; Every time I try to picture them together, I see this:

Envy: *insane grin* I want to see your pain...your blood...*lick* SUFFER! SUFFER MORE!
Ed: Well, you're pretty sexy too! ^^;;;

[later]

Envy: *laughing hysterically*
Ed: *WHO'S* SHORTER THAN A JELLY BEAN!?!?!?

....they'd probably all be noncon...nevermind. I think I like EnvyxEd. >=D

I`m al for dubbing anime and bringing it to America on DVD, but if they air it on television, I think they have to be 120% true to the original, which many an Adult Swim port isn`t.

So I`ve heard. I`m Canadian. We don`t have Adult Swim =p
Llewelyn1314 on September 29th, 2004 06:20 pm (UTC)
Yeah, we probably won't get any FMA until a year later or something.

Adult Swim doesn't really censor much, if any of the anime they show. It's Toonami where they end up hacking a show altogether I.E. Gundam SEED should never have been put on Toonami(but that's another community, another post). Anyway, I've watched the sub of Wolf's Rain and saw the dub on AS and I don't see where they've really neutered anything-IMHO anyway.

I wouldn't worry too much about Full Metal Alchemist. I'm trying to have faith that they'll stick pretty much to the storyline and such. Plus I think since there's been so much "bad" dubbing and editing in the past of anime once it hits NA that a lot of people just assume something is going to be bad before they even give it a chance, so it automatically gets attacked before it hits the shelves.

And when you think about it, before fansubs all we had were dubs shown on Saturday mornings and Weekday afternoons and back then the dubs were no doubt worse, but no one ever knew the difference because there was nothing to compare them to.

Either love me or leave me alonesyphonboa on September 29th, 2004 06:55 pm (UTC)
In zoids circles, we call these kind of fans "ZKs"

aka

Zombie Kids



They'll pump money into anime, make crappy fanfics and generally make the rest of us look like blathering retards. Not to mention bid extraordinarily high prices on ebay and pump up the prices of various merchandise and sell out stores faster than you can say hagaren.

Question? Is this this bad for FMA??

More fans = More money, more attention from publishers.

Ive seen the dub, it is pretty good. And if you look at some of funi's later works like Detective Conan ie (Case Closed), that show is incredibly VIOLENT. Geez....like so much blood @_@.

Funi is getting better.

If it was 4kids or ADV...run for the hills.

There will be idiot fans no matter what. Just because it's on Adult Swim doesn't mean that it wont bring SOME intelligent fans to the series. I'm sure it will bring some morons but that's the price for popularity... Equivalent trade and all. ;)

Oh wow, didn't we get over this topic when it got licensed?

First it was because it was licensed, now because it's on Adult Swim. Could we please leave the dead horse alone? What did it ever do to you, man? Think of the dead horses! ;_;

Why is Cartoon Network evil? It's because of networks like it that high-profile anime that so much more of it has been brought over. And licensing puts money back into the anime industry in Japan.

you know what, I'm just one of those pissy fans who thinks the general american public is too dumb and conservative for most anime I like. I've been thoroughly disappointed with what has happened to other precious fandoms. So I share your horror. I took them both and will put them up with credit soon. <3
Comiccomicsan on September 29th, 2004 09:38 pm (UTC)
You know, stuff like this makes me wonder what the japanese fandom is like. You never see what people really like online because the few people you can talk to more than likely understand two languages pretty well, which SHOULD put them above any 'omglol' type fans. That's not to say that American anime fans aren't stupider, because then you have the 'omg it's japanzese I love it' fans in addition to any idiots you would have otherwise.

I think I think this way because someone pointed out that just because Japanese voice actors tend to be better than american voice actors, doesn't make every japanese voice actor good, and in some cases the japanese voice actor is just as bad as the English one, but if you don't know the language you don't realise it. A little parallel I guess.
