Cute whale

A question...

On chapter 50 (or was it 51?) they reffer to Churchill as "Shogun"... does anybody know what would that be in English? Today a friend and I were having our doubts about the historical context... =)

FMA Lexicon

Hey all! (Again.) I've taken it upon myself to start a new FMA project, and that is the Fullmetal Alchemist Lexicon! (A dictionary, basically.)

This'll be a joint effort among you guys, my friends IRL, and various other resources. We'll compile a list of all terms, places and things used in FMA, or anything to do with FMA, define them, and arrange them into dictionary form. Then we'll, I dunno, submit it to a site or something.

(Please stop me now if this has been done before, and I'll shut the hell up. ^_^)

The following terms/places/actions are the ones I've thought of so far. Beware my horrible, guessed spelling on some of them. These are not in alphabetical order nor have they been defined yet.

homunculus (homunculi)
transmutation circle (array)
alchemize (mise?)
Ishbal Massacre
oruboros (sp?)
Rush Valley
The Gate
Philosopher's Stone

I don't know the names of all the random towns and cities, because I never bothered to remember all of them. Feel free to submit more terms/places/things to this list. I'll update it as we go.

On that note, should I include people in this, such as Edward Elric, Roy Mustang, Hiromu Arakawa (for that matter?) etc.? Can people be defined? XD And if we do people, we might as well do companies, such as Square Enix, Funimation, etc...tell me what you think on all that.

Hope you're all up for this! It'd mean a lot to me if we could get it done. ^_^

Thank you and good night! -flies off-

Might be a stupid question

Ok, this will sound like a totally pointless, random, stupid question. But I've only been into FMA for a few months now, and it's the very first question that popped into my mind when I saw the show.

Why does Ed wear his hair like that? I seriously thought that he was a girl the first time I watched the show. Not kidding. Now I know he's not a girl so he doesn't look like one anymore, but...it still bothers me. His hair looks good like that, don't get me wrong. I'm just curious.

Sorry for asking such a strange question, but I didn't find it in the memories. ^^;

It seems I ask a question everyday ^^;

I watched the fansubs because I really, really dislike the dubbed version and, well, is his name Kimbley (Kimblee?) or Kimberley? I figure this could be confusing, since the Japanese are calling him Kimbley, but also they might just be having a hard time pronouncing Kimberley. Sup with that, boo?

Ed Fanart

I drew this a while ago and coloured it just today. Then I was reading through the first comic and found a reference picture, and realised the angle/anatomy might not be quite right... (>_<;) But I thought I would post it here and share it anyway...

Mocklation requests?


I had a buttload of fun mocklating those few pages of Mary Sue manga for the third FMA game... and I'd love to do a few more mocklations of that...


Anyone got requests?

I have some guidelines though:

1) Don't pick entire chapters... FMA manga chapters run from 30-40 pages usually... and I don't have the time to sit and erase speech bubbles and then retype 'em all day... this is just for a bit 'o fun, ya know? Please keep requests down to a few pages or so

2) I'll do doujin scans, if you got them. But please, No Yaoi, Yuri, or Hentai doujinshis. I don't like that stuff, got it?

3) I'd love to mocklate some of those 'special' manga pages from the Perfect Guides or those special manga-books... but problem is, I only own Perfect guide 1, (in Chinese, go figure), and anything else, you'll have to offer the raws for me :/

4) Keep it to FMA! I'd like to make it so I can show these back to you guys on the comm... but if you have personal requests, lemmie know, and negotiate with me... I might not follow the same mangas you do :x

5) Beware... I like to procrastinate... but lots of encouraging urges help me get outta the procrastinate-y mood... (that and, if I'm inspired, I'll finish it!)

For your request, just give me the chapter number, and the page ranges, and I'll see what I can do ^^

And if you have no clue what I mean by Mocklation, Go check this out, this is what I'm talking about

Just a few icons

Okay, so they're not quite movie icons. lol They're icons from the series. I don't think they're ruining anything, so hopefully you'll all agree they're spoiler free. Since there's more than one, a cut you must follow!

Note: These were made over time. ^^; They get progressively better.

FMA Staff Q and A on adultswim.com

A few months ago, SwimTorrent made a post in the action folder of the adultswim.com message boards asking for questions for a small group of the FMA cast. [adultswim] is based in Atlanta and they were going to Kunicon Atlanta and they figured it'd be nice to get some of the message board members to submit questions and try to get the FMA folks at the convention to answer them.

Well, they did.

The adultswim.com website just got a complete face lift. And with the new look came a lot of new content.

Amongst that content was the video footage of the FMA guys answering the questions.

You can find the videos here: http://www.adultswim.com/shows/fullmetal/bts/index.html

Also, we got some dub information from the interviews...

- Greg Ayres will be playing the "Lizard Man" chimera
- Tiffany Grant will be playing an undisclosed character (I'm thinking Martel or Grandma-Dante)

Hey :3

I'm in search of an FMA OpenCanvas doodlebuddy. Therefore, I come here to ask if any of YOU lot wish to be said doodlebuddy - or buddies. You must like Envy, and have seen episode 50 (unless you like spoilers - there's something in that episode I LOVE to draw... repeatedly). A liking for Ed/Envy would also be nice.

It would be a good idea for you to possess a tablet, but I've seen plenty of people draw amazing things with a mouse. If you don't have OC ver. 1.1, I can send it (it's less than a megabyte in size).

I'm Kiwi J Wolf on AIM, should anyone wish to message me. Or you can just comment ^_^

FMA Song PV's

when you're an FMA fan, you gotta pay homage and thanks to the people that brought energy to the show... and great music, of course. |3 what better way than to watch their PV's...

** PV = Promotional Videos engineered by music artists to promote their songs, kinda like...exactly like music videos :) they only call it differently in Japan i guess **

i've upped the PV's of some of the OP's and ED's to the show. :)

Porno Graffiti Melissa ( MegaUp | YSI )
Nana Kitade Kesenai Tsumi ( MegaUp | YSI )
L'Arc En Ciel Ready Steady Go ( MegaUp | YSI )
Yellow Generation Tobira No Mukou He ( MegaUp | YSI )
Asian Kung-Fu Generation Rewrite ( MegaUp | YSI )
Cool Joke Undo ( torrent | MegaUp | YSI )
L'Arc En Ciel Link ( MegaUp | YSI1 YSI2 )

it's extremely amusing actually, having to watch and listen to the people who actually sang them, bobbing your head. watching it made me realize again how Afujin and Rewrite are TOO cool, at the same time rediscovering the beauty of rock. |3 (observe the lead singer/rhythm guitar when he strums... and you actually make out the parts he contributes! guess i'm just weird for being overwhelmed with something such as that ^^;) plus! i love how the guitarist of L'Arc En Ciel puffs his smoke. XD Kesenai Tsumi was freaky at first, but i found myself chuckling by the end for some reason. XP and Cool Joke is... Mt. Fuji was distractful.

edit: Lost Heaven PV out yet? also added YSI links to Tobira, Link and Undo
