I dunno if I'm at liberty to say this cause I haven't actually seen the the premier yet. But I'm under the impression that alot of people were a bit upset with the placement of the opening with Ready Steady Go at the end. Whether on not they hacked up Melissa which does sound like a bloody awful crime to me... the fact is in the first episode the opening sequence was placed at the end even in the original wasn't it? I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure this was the case.

Well most people's concern is that they'll be using the different animations with Ready Steady Go pasted over them for the rest of the series. Seeing the animation for the 1st, 3rd and 4th opening with RSG does seem very, very off.. >.>

Okay x-x that does make more sense... and I can't even imagine what sort of hack job that makes for *almost doesn't want to know* especially since openings are obviously timed with the song in mind...

*watches all four openings with RSG playing over*

... Oh crap, that's just.. awful. XD;;

Melissa DID play at the end of episode 1. I can't believe no one else noticed that! X3

Doesn't the military sign show at the beginning of RSG? O_o

umn... maybe? in the part when the flower blooms and Ed sorta jumps foreward o-O I kinda remember it opaquely showing there.

Ack >_>;

A realistic version of the Ouroborus symbol does. Its the part where a bud blossoms into a flower/carnation and the petals fly around.

And before deleting my comment, stupid me rememberd that the watch with the Military insignia DOES appear in the opening scenes of Ready Steady Go

pretty sure funimation told us that the ending would be JUST the Ready Steady Go song...
no, wait..all too worried about the VAs to care..
∫ 悟り♥ d♥: Evil [selphish]absentaserpis on November 6th, 2004 10:46 pm (UTC)
huh? so it's the ending now? I though they were keeping it for the only opening theme.

And I for one can't exactly care too much about the va's here seeing that I haven't heard them since July ¬¬

They mentioned it at Fanime that they'd only had the broadcast rights to RSG so that'd be the only thing playing on CN, but that the DVDs would have the original op/ed on their respective episodes.

Musta been a contractual thing then to have the episodes packaged as they were, but then again though it seems odd to have RSG on all the op/ed, it does make a whole heck of a lotta sense... the op/ed animations to tend to be arc specific, so it'd be really spoilerish to show that 2nd op animation from the get go when you won't see most of those chars for at least 3 months or so?

Though it's odd I know, were I a newbie, I'd be greatly appreciative of it.

Be glad they didn't do something like with the Rave Master dub... *stabs tokyopop repeatedly*

[waves] FMA fan since like mid 20's were available on fansub, browsing the community here.

IIRC, American TV has A LOT MORE commercial time then Japanese TV, so [AS] simply don't have the TIME to play both the OP and ED, so they tend to run OPs as EDs. I think it's cuz they need the credits (which they place at the end) and because OP sequences tent to have higher animation quality then ending sequences. (Ending to Fushigi Yuugi, anyone? Yeah, manga pictures scrolling across the screen, real creative.)

Even then, they have such short amount of time, they can't even play the whole dang SONG. Hence the awful C&P job with the scenes.

This doesn't mean it's not painful to watch, but there is a method in this madness. ^_^;

T_T But still! We want our themes!!! *chants and runs around with banners* ^ ^;;; But of course, it'll be nice to watch it on DVD soon. ^__^
