About the English DVDs and Manga....

Ok, so Cartoon Network is supposed to be taking FMA off May 6th right? After episode 26? And as far as I know, they're putting it back on in November.

So I'm assuming that the DVDs are going to keep getting released. I know that the next DVD is coming out in May (the 3rd), and so would that mean that, if Funimation keeps putting them out at a rate of 1 DVD a month, with four episodes, by the time it's put back on in November, we'd be up to episode 36 on the english DVDs, right?

As for the manga, I don't know if the schedule is going to be all screwed because Volume 1 is out like, three weeks early, but I think that if it's put out at the rate it's going our now, by November, we should be up to volume 4. I think....

Does this all sound right?

I also wanted to ask if anyone could suggest themes for me, I'm dying, and it really does tend to help. (At least I can write something. And also, is there like, a list of themes with the numbers? 'Cause I do know themes have numbers (I think O-o;;) If so, could someone send it to me, or give me the link? Thanks. ^__^

It's been forever since I last posted here.

XDD Anyways, last Sunday me and my friend luke_atmey went on a walk for MS. We go every year, and this year our team had matching Tee-shirts and we were going to walk for "Frank".

The Leader Post (our city newspaper) came up to talk to us because of our shirts, and then asked who we were walking for.

Me: Uncle Frank.
Jeshi: But he's not really our uncle...
Me: No. He's my uncle.
Newspaper: So... what's his last name?
Me: ..... **Looks at Jeshi** Uhm..... Archer!
Newspaper: You don't really talk to him much, do you?
Me: .... >.> No.

Collapse )

Anyways, they took our pictures too, but they didn't get published. But our shirts said "Here comes trouble" and had a cute little picture of Envy on them. XDD

EDIT: Minor technical difficulties. Just wait a moment as I talk to Jeshi about this.

Taking fic requests

So. I like writing fanfic, but I need some things to get my creativity flowing. And I need some practice so I don't get rusty. ^_^

Which is why for the low price of $19.99!!!!! I will write anything, within the bars of G to PG-13 and not messing with Hughes/Gracia. Because some things in life are better left untouched. Also, if you want Envy/Ed fluff, you're speaking to the wrong person. Although I will do creepy, totally messed up Envy/Ed :D

Plus, it's a fun early graduation present for me. Whee, fun!

Anyway, all you really have to do is state specific characters or parings. If you want, you can add any other requirements. Also note that if you don't specify a genre, it will probably end up as crack unless there's no possible way that it can include crack. And I procrastinate, so sorry if I'm still trying to get these done next year ^^

bad subtitles = death

I was too impatient to wait for FMA to finish in America, so I spent everything I had (not much, really) on the entire series subbed on DVD. The DVDs I bought were actually pretty good as far as the video quality and subbing goes.. unless you watch episode 47.

In that episode are the absolute WORST subtitles EVER. Not only do they not make sense, but some are even completely irrelevant to the story. Allow me to give a few examples.. (SPOILERSDUH)

Final Update on the FMA photoshoot!!

Hello there,

Since there are just a little bit over two weeks since the photoshoot, I thought I'd email everyone that we've received replies from concerning the photoshoot, so that no one forgets. ^-~

First thing, also announced on the website a few weeks ago is that the photoshoot was moved from May 21st to Saturday, May 14th, 2005. This way anyone who wants to attend the Northeast Cosplay Picnic can do so without any conflicts. The location is still the same: 7th Avenue entrance of Central Park. It's right at the exit of the subway and hard to miss. We will start assembling together at 11am, so try to be there around that time so that we don't miss you completely if the group moves away from the entrance.

As for the picnic aspect of the gathering, we ask that you bring whatever you could to share with the group. Not forgetting the plates, cups, napkins. The essentials like that. Something to spread out on the grass might be a good idea if you don't want grass stains all over your rear-end. X3 Since we don't want to get thrown out of the park, everyone will have to clean up after him/herself and create no trouble - no more than an invading group of FMA cosplayers can create. Feel free to either reply to this email if you have any ideas of what to bring, or respond at the website's tagboard (http://photoshoot.sinharvest.com) This way we hopefully won't end up with five bottles of coke and one bag of chips or something like that.

Anyone coming from out of state, or in NYC for the first time: if you need directions don't hesitate to contact us! We'll happily tell you how to get there.

As always, if you have any questions, let us know. We want this to run as smoothly as possible.

FMA Medals

Found these at Yahoo!Auctions Japan. They are limited edition FMA medals set (5 total) of the Amestris' lion symbol, Roy's flame array, Flamel Cross, Scar's Tattoo and Homunculus' Ouroboros. I think they are suppose to be used as keychains. I actually seen them before a long ago on the Gangan/SquareEnix merchandise website. Sadly, they were taken down from the website and I assume they don't sale these anymore. :(

Chinese (cantonese):

若被傷害夠 就用一對手
痛快的割開 昨日詛咒
入夜等白晝 剩下傷痕開始結焦那胸膛
城內 快要變作困獸鬥人人尋仇赤腳走

天黑黑 聽朝世界到處也哭了
無盡處 充斥了太多紛擾 人類這麼渺少
這一刻 身邊看到振翅那飛鳥
無懼怕 高飛去發出光輝 長夜在那方照耀
是你 伸手拉我高飛
到高空最高點 再掉下這地
然後我 高聲講我非貪生怕死
可惜見不到轉機 只得忐忑的心 永遠傷悲

若被傷害夠 就用一對手
痛快的割開 昨日詛咒
入夜等白晝 剩下傷痕開始結焦那胸膛
城內 快要變作困獸鬥人人尋仇赤腳走

這一刻 揮手再見振翅那飛鳥
離別了 只得我在等天曉 明白自己多渺小
不奢想 伸開兩臂會振翅飛去
唯獨我 血脈如像不死鳥 曾受著猛火燒焦
但我 早經等了多久
翻開我傷口 世上亦依舊

明白了 想不走也找不到借口
深谷裡 找到出口 當中一把聲音帶我出走
若被傷害夠 就用一對手
永遠將記憶 扣著鎖扣
立定心就夠 存亡關頭不追悔 將這鎖匙
投下 最遠最暗那處我從無回頭去遠走

english translation:
"immortal legend"

If you've been hurt enough then use your pair of hands
joyfully/delightfully cut yesterday's curse
nightfall waiting for daylight the leftover scar/wound starts to scab that chest
inside the city nearly gonna become a caged beast and fight everyone revenges with bare feet (!?!? i don't understand the last bit...)

dark night tomorrow the world around cries
never-ending place is full of disturbances human are so little
this moment next to me there is a spread-winged bird
no need to be afraid fly high to glow brightly long nights shine over there
it's you stretch your hand to pull me and fly high
reach the highest point of the sky then drop back to this ground
and then i loudly say i'm not afraid to die
but i can't a changing chance only a disturbed heart forever sad

if you've been hurt enough then use you pair of hands
joyfully/delightfully cut yesterday's curse
nightfall waiting for daylight the leftover scar/wound starts to scab that chest
inside the city nearly gonna become a caged beast and fight everyone revenges with bare feet

this moment wave my hand and see again that spread-winged bird
left only i'm waiting for the morning understand how small i am
don't that long spread those two arms to fly
only i blood like a immortal bird burnt by a strong fire
but i already wait for a long time
open up my wound the world is still the same

understand wanna go but can't find an excuse
in a deep valley found the exit inside a voice led me out
if you've been hurt enough then use your pair of hands
forever put your memory locked up with a lock
it's enough to make up your mind at a life-death situation don't regret (put)this key
throw down the furthest the darkest place i never turn back and walk away

i haven't tried translating songs before... so it's not that good^^;; feel free to give suggestions/help^^;;
