I have an FMA pocketwatch which is... shall we say, unofficial? Anyway, lately it's stopped keeping time, the second hand twitching back and forth (One tick forwards, one back) but not changing the hour or minute hand. Has this happened to anyone else before, and, if so, how can this be fixed?

Personally, I think it's just that there's not enough charge in the battery, but I thought I'd make sure. :)
Note: I am not putting this list up looking to start a battle. As such, I will not be responding to any comments made on this post, positive or negative.

Everyone agrees, more or less, that Fullmetal Alchemist is truly a masterful creation, a story universe that borders on a work of art. It began life as a manga series, went on to become an anime, then a movie, and even several games.

But although the universe, many of the characters, and much of the storyline is the same from one aspect of canon to another, there are also differences, sometimes significant, between them. The devil is in the details, they say, and the details vary from one version of Fullmetal Alchemist to another.

The manga and the anime are, as they always have been, two distinct entities, in completely different formats. Comparing details and trying to judge quality between them is like judging apples and oranges. It's ridiculous to say that an apple is bad because it doesn't taste enough like citrus, or that an orange is the wrong color because it's not red enough. I'm of the opinion that people don't take enough time to stop and appreciate the things, completely independent from Arakawa's original work, that make the Fullmetal Alchemist anime great.

And so, I present to you:

The Top Ten Reasons Why
the (First) Fullmetal Alchemist Anime

in and of itself


Please keep in mind that these aren't the top ten reasons why Fullmetal Alchemist, the story, rocks, although it does. These are the features which are unique to the anime, which make it, as an example of its media and format, magnificent.

1) the art.Collapse )

2) the animation.Collapse )

3) the voice acting.Collapse )

4) the soundtrack.Collapse )

5) the choreography.Collapse )

6) the villains.Collapse )

7) character design.Collapse )

8) character expression.Collapse )

9) character growth and development.Collapse )

10) the plot. (plot spoilers)Collapse )

Here's my first post, both to my own livejournal and to the fm_alchemist community (well, I hope I'm doing this correctly to get it in both places.) Many, many oodles of thanks to Kalika Maxwell, who not only acted as beta for this fanfic but also convinced me to get a livejournal account in the first place.

This doesn't yet have a title, but I'll keep thinking about it.

Hey all ^_^ I've been working (slowly but diligently) on a doujinshi I want to draw, and I thought that since I can finally take pictures of things (yay DigiCam!) I'd share a few sketches. Mind you, only a few, since I'm being rather secretive about the plot and such. No real reason why though XP

Anyways, for those of you who haven't seen the movie, these are kinda spoilerish. Not really, but I wouldn't want it spoil anyone if they don't want to be, so I'll put that up there just in case.

Only three, all of Edo and AruCollapse )

And remember: Comments are L O V E ^__^

A little bit nervous, but mostly excited to share my (tentative) first digital art project.  I still can't really make heads or tails of half the program, but I do hope that it turned out alright.  I'd love to get feedback on it, and maybe some advice from other users of digital media, so... comment please?

Haha I come baring an unfinished pic of Envy crossdressing. Beware the full sized image is LARGE. As in not resized from being scanned large. Also it's still unfinnished, as in I haven't gotten up the nerve to attempt shading yet. Cus my moniter sucks and colors I choose to shade with end up being far different in shade on other computers and my pics end up looking like crap. Aw shoot, I'm ranting again.

Lookith here!Collapse )
