Realized that I have a few artstuffs that I hadn't posted yet, so here goes (and they're all linked to my LJ because I have a ton of notes that people probably don't read stuck all over them). And as a general warning, my skills are minimal. T_T

Lounging-- When Ed meets ParaKiss and Ororon.

A Truly Unfunny Comic of Sorts-- A oneshot drawn after watching ep 29. Has some vague spoilers.

Skimpyclothing!Ed-- Drawn after talking to renquise about Ed [and the rest of the FMA gang] in gothic Lolita costumes (o__O). Instead of gothic lolita, however, I ended up with something not quite of anything and truly ugly. (the lolita!ed will have to wait for another time. >D)

Aaaaaaaand the last one of Roy looking young and belligerent, officially called "Yes, I'm Drinking Hot Chocolate and Wearing Glasses So Screw You."

FMA Liscenced

This is not another post saying it is liscensed. This is just trying to give everyone hope.

There was another anime liscensed recently...Chrno Crusade. Anime Forever still does the subs. Because Sonchou is a break off from Anime Forever there is a chance they will continue subbing.

OR maybe a-keep will decide it isn't worth dropping now.

Anbu gave up FMA - but we're not dead

Quoting: "We will indeed stop fansubbing Fullmetal Alchemist if it truly is licensed. Now, I don't want you to create 234534 threads about how we are fuckers for not continuing it, I'm sure there will be PLENTY of vulture groups and fame hungry groups to pick it up and destroy the whole series with their shitty speed subbing. I won't say any names, but I have so many in mind...
Anyway, I already removed all the torrents from our tracker, enjoy."

And, I'm going to repeat myself again. We have lots of options here!
1) Hope some other group decides to keep going. Even Anbu thinks there'll be people to go on. (sonchou? other?)
2) Turn to a group based outside of USA that still do English subs and beg them very nicely to pick it up. (ie SPA)
3) Pick up subs in another language. (ie French)
4) In relation to 3, have people write down scripts from the subs in other languages for the people who only know English. (I'd help. I know French.)

It's OK people. We're going to get through, one way or another.

FMA licensing fuss - attempt to recap

Just trying to make things clearer for everybody, but I'll probably just confuse everybody further.

1. It started with rumors and an article saying that it was announced at one of the pre-conferences for E3(big gaming convention) that Funi licensed FMA and that it would air in October.
2. Animesuki marked FMA as 'licensed'.
3. Anbu say they'll give up FMA if it's true, and remove all their torrents.
4. Sonchou say they will keep going anyway.
5. Anbu then say it *isn't* official. Their channel title says 'We haven't dropped FMA yet'.
6. Nobody knows what is going on exactly. Fangirls panic through all this stuff.

Conclusion: wtf? Well at least Sonchou said they won't let us down whatever happens. So, we can chill. But I suppose we can expect the whole thing to be official soon enough, unless it was all a big mistake.

(so, did that help any or did I just confuse you all over again?)

Is it just me, or is IGN making up this info off a comment saying "We'd like to pick it up." like the BAAF accident with One Piece?

It seems very odd that Funimation would announce an anime liscense at E3. o_o; Why not wait two more months and announce at the big one? Anime Expo?

I'm just confused.

Whether it's true or not...

We're all panicking over nothing. Seriously.

Just because an anime is licensed does not mean that fansub groups online will not continue with it. Yes, you will lose some groups because of the licensing issue. ANBU is a good example of this. However, for all that you lose, there are still many out there who will continue to provide fansubbing for fans.

Trust me on this; I've seen it happen before. When Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex was first licensed, the same uproar happened. However, several NEW fansubbing groups came onto the scene and continued where the old groups had left off. Same for Gundam SEED. Bandai announced it was licensing SEED in America, and several of the well-respected fansub groups stopped subbing out of respect for the license. The rest went on their merry way, making it available for all interested.

There's nothing to be "discontented" over, nothing to get upset over, especially if it concerns continuing the stream of fansubs. Really, now... you think that an anime that good would be left by the wayside just because it gets licensed?

I'm going to make sure also...

Anime Central is this coming weekend, and FUNi is scheduled to have a panel there, as are other anime companies. I do plan on attending it just to hear for certain if HagaRen has indeed been picked up. I'm holding off on the discontent until I hear for sure, but if nothing else Anime News Network usually reports what companies say at their con panels, which might be faster then what I can post as I won't really have net access til Sunday... ^-^

[edit] here is what has posted:

Full Metal Alchemist Licensed (06:48 AM EST): According to the PS2 site on IGN, FUNimation announced Full Metal Alchemist at E3 this week. "Funimation will handle distributing the Fullmetal Alchemist cartoon in North America -- a cartoon that has already sold 51 episodes to Cartoon Network for an October air date." According to those who were at the conference, there has been no mention of which flavor of Cartoon Network it'll be on (Adult Swim or Toonami) while the disc release is apparently slated for January 2005 in the now becoming traditional method for FUNimation of the single disc and starter kit method.

About the whole HAGAREN being taken by Funi

Now, I read a few posts and saw that people said it was going to air on CN IF it was liscened. Or something like that.
Now, I'm sorry to be a topic-n00b over this, but can someone give me a link to any E3 article?

I'd get it myself, but... looking through over 200 replies... o.o;;

Any guesses on what names will be changed to? Cause I know they are going ot change some.... *sob*

just my two cents...

Hey, I'm not worried.

The way I see it is - I like this anime enough to buy it. In fact, I'd be rather excited to see it on DVD. I won't be staying up all night with my eyeballs stuck to the computer; better for one's own personal health, you see.

More fanart

Yay XD A post that doesn't deal with FMA being licensed. ^^;;

Actually, today during class I went on a huge Envy X Ed drawing spree. I have more pictures, but I have to make them darker before they'll show up well enough with my scanner **kicks it**

All the same, out of all of them, this is one of my favorites. I'm actually quite proud of how Envy turned out XD

No references again. Except for Ed's arm. Which was a pain in the ass, and looks like crap.

Proof that I can draw better than this.

Anyways, I may or may not post the other pictures later today. *shrugs* I guess it depends what people want. There's a chibi Envy and Ed, and then a picture thats... more sexual I suppose ^^;;

Collapse )

The picture was on a bit of a slant, and ended up cutting off part of Ed. But that's okay because it was nothing special and just made it look a lot worse.

*pokes it* I'm surprised about how well it came out, though it can't hold a candle to what some of you have drawn ^^;;

Also, I do need some references now and then ^-~ Could someone please give me/tell me where there's a clear picture of Envy that's not super-small, and a clear picture of shirtless Ed?

...**looks at time** Oh, look at that. I'm skipping a class to post this up here XD

[Edit] .... My scanner KILLED Envy's smirk. And that's what made me love this picture. Oh, woe is me.

[Edit #2] Resized the original picture and cut it different. Yes, Ed has no chest. -.-; Oh well, it looks a little better now.

[Edit #3] Note to self: STOP LOOKING AT THE PICTURE >.> Ed has no body.... -.-; This picutre is so incomplete that it makes me weep.

WTF. The FMA Anbu torrents are already down? Dammit, I only had a bit left to go for episode 31. Wah.



If FMA has indeed been dubbed and there is no hope of it ever being subbed by ANBU again, would someone be so kind as to send it to me through AIM? :D;;;


Aw, c'mon! You know you want to send me it. Look at my funny icon. Express your love for it through AIM file sharing.

*shot again*

Well, I tried. Can't blame me for trying. XD

How about

Since it is now licenced and Anbu is stoping fansubbing and has already took down their torrent. But they say that Sonchou is going to continue fansubbing for use. Yet wont keep there torrents b/c of there rules. I think we should take this post for everyone to list any and all sites you might have that will continue to give links to the Sonchou torrents as they are released for eps 32 and up. Thanks everyone for there help. I figure we should all come together to get us through this hard time. B/c I know I wont be able to deal without having my FMA every week.
Ill start. There is that is still giving torrents

Yes, I'm mad about FMA being liscensed.

All I can say is.. Thank god it wasn't 4Kids.

I mean, if it's like Fruit's Basket, and if it's on Adult Swim, what do have to worry about?

Look at Wolf's Rain, that show has *alot* of bad stuff, and it's comming over great. It has Kiba bitting into someones neck and blood spraying out (That solves the Izumi problem).

So yeah, it could of been better, but still much much worse.

I submitted this earlier, but realized that I linked everyone to what is a friend's only entry.... So I deleted it. ^^;;;

So let's try this again!

To take a break from the FMA being licensed thread, here's some fanart of Roy/Ed.

Hope you enjoy it! Comments are my best friends. :3

Everyone Be Happy. Like this -> :D

I am not exactly sure if someone already wrote about this - if you have then please tell me because I'll feel like a complete idiot o_O;. But yeah, Sonchou closed their torrents but are STILL subbing the anime. You guys'll just have to get them from the IRC channel or anywhere else that's making it available. Baka-Updates should keep people informed as well as to when the episodes will be released.

ok someone has. shoot me now.

...anyone else getting pretty sick of these FMA being licensed posts...?

My own LJ had a public post basically saying STFU already. We get it, it's licensed, oh NO! I personally am getting twitchy going through my friends list and seeing God knows how many posts on this subject already.

Can't we have ONE post about it and the whining/depression/real discussion about it there in the comments rather then ten odd seperate posts saying the same thing? Takumou... >_>

On this subject as well. I wasn't so worried because Sonchou was supposedly still subbing the show. It now seems that is not the case. As such this does worry me, but my rambles on this subject will go to my own LJ.

Does anyone have any (medium sized) screencaps of well... the FMA cast. I'm finding it hard to find -.-;

Looking mostly for Roy, Ed and Envy, but other characters would be rather welcome ^^;;;

Hm about Sonchou's fansubbing

Since I have never seen any of Sonchou's fansubs and downloaded only ANBU-AKeep's fansubs. Since ANBU-AKeep stop putting out the fansubs, my question is how good is the Sonchou's fansubbing?

I'm trying to decide if I should just watch the raws or watch Sonchou's.

First time poster

Yay.. It's my first post, although I've been lurking a while..

Well, like all of you, I'm an FMA fan.. And thus, I'm trying to make an automail. I'm not going to any con or anything like that. I just wanna make it for display. But I'm having some problems..

Does anyone know of any good reference pics?

FMA Raws?

Does anybody know where I can get raw FMA episodes via bittorrent? I'm trying to make an AMV, but most of my episodes are subbed and I don't want the video cluttered up with subtitles. Any help would be great, thanks a bunch!

Do you have some kind of "favorite FmA-goodie"? Like wallpapers, Winamp Skins, Icons? I mean, if it's an AMW, post the title, if it's a wallpaper, post link and so on? ^^;

Sorry for the spammy post ^^; Just curious ... >_>

OMG PLEASE STOP WITH THE 'Funimation is licensing FMA' THREADS!

I love you all, but it's killing my braaaain!!11one LOLZ. @_@;

edit: I think we all know by NOW that Sonchou is still subbing it; Anime-Keep has pretty much verified that for me, from what they know. (I'm on the distro team).

So go, frolick, get outside!

OK Yeah.

Dear FMA Comm,

As we have all been reminded several times today, our beloved series was liscenced by FUNimation. While I'm not happy, I've come to accept it, like the majority of the comm. Sonchou will still be releasing the subs via IRC and bittorrent, I believe. You can all rest easy, IT IS GOING TO BE OKAY.

However, I have to say, it gets annoying when a million different people post wailing about how their lives are over and they cannot function without subbed FMA, and how bad a job they'll do, all in individual entries on the journal. It's spamming people's friends pages, so please, be considerate when you decide you need to post about your individual angst and woe. If you've got to do it at all, reply to somebody else's post, or write it in your own journal.

Similarly, about four or five different "SHUT UUUP" posts have surfaced, and I have to tell you guys that gets annoying fast, too. I really hate it when the fandom gets divided like this; we are fans of the same series, please, let's all find comfort in that at least, and stop squabbling. Okay?

If anybody needs a place to rant and rave about the subbing, or about how people are still ranting and raving about the subbing, PLEASE DO SO HERE. It will take the flood off people's friends pages.

Thank you. Happy posting.
