Random post by ME ♥  
So, I'm going to my high school anime club today. :DDD (Please note that I am in college. I'M A LOSER!! :DDD)

My brother is the club's vice-president or something (like I was before him! *wipes away a tear*) and he decided that since I'm coming to the club and I'm SO special because I'm one of the Legendary Original Members and I have a Silver Watch, they should watch Fullmetal Alchemist to celebrate. (Of course, I'M the one who has to walk all the way to school carrying my laptop because it's their only means of watching it.) My immediate response was, "DON'T WATCH EPISODES ONE AND TWO!! That would be a bigger waste of an hour than the time we watched Hikaru no Go episodes one and two!!!"

He kind of looked at me strangely and asked, "Well, then what episodes should we watch?"

"Episodes three and- wait..." I paused to think. "Episodes three and five!"

HAW HAW HAW!! I posted this here because I found it amusing but I thought that most of my flist wouldn't get it. :(((( Please delete if it's too off-topic and strange.

(PS- Apparently the current president of the club has only watched the Chopstick subs. I heard that and was like, "Okay, who chose this moron to be presi- oh wait, that was me.")

I LIKE the first two episodes >:[

Sure there were a couple plotholes, but the series is so long you don`t notice them until you rewatch, and I thought it was a GREAT way to introduce the concepts in alchemy with a bang and have it all relevant in the flashback episode, so they didn`t have to waste emotional moments with exposition. I loved the leading up to things with the introduction to Human Transmutation.

Plus, they have Roze. And Roze/Ed-ness. So they cannot be bad.

*cries for poor episodes 1 and 2 ;___;*

LMAO, you are so random. That's cool though.

I liked the first two eps. But yes, three is better. :D

XD I love how you have status because you own a silver watch. My fandom is so great. <3

*cackle* Indeed, and good advice for those that have yet to subject others to FMA. They can eventually watch 1 and 2, but watching those first will only cause confusion. Episode 4 was rather pointless all in all XD I think you get a flashback to it later, and that should about cover the important areas of that episode.

There were important areas to it?

Actually, I NEVER watched episode four. I got five minutes into it but it was really boring so I skipped it. I told my brother to skip it, too (he kidnapped my laptop the other day so that he could- HOLY SHEISS HE'S WATCHED EPISODES 5-30 IN A SPAN OF A FEW DAYS HOW DID THAT HAPPEN????).

I watched episodes 1 - 26 in one day?

Well, I've also been using my computer a lot, because I have a bunch of schoolwork to get done. XD

There is no love for episode four. No love at all.

*weeps for episode four*

It wasn't that bad! I just think that FMA spoils us with its almost complete lack of filler, so when we get some standalone episodes like that we get bored. For my money, episode ten was much much worse.

Yeah, but it had Ed stuffing his face nonstop.

It's not that ep 4 is boring.

It's that it has huge plot holes, serves no overarching plot or character purposes, insults our intelligence, takes itself far too seriously when it actually can't tell a straight story, and on TOP of all that, is boring. :)

*seconds that*

By contrast, the first two episodes (or as I refer to them, the pilot) kicks off many of the major themes, as well as having a lot of fun actiony scenes and Ed being cool. :3 Sure, they aren't perfect, but I find it hard to believe that there's a better way to start off the series.

I actually like the first two eps a whole lot, and I don't get why people hate them. They're not perfect, but Hagaren has a LOT of eps that aren't perfect.
